You too can create a healing mandala for yourself. Combine a Mandala with a Positive Affirmation, and watch your world transform. Use your mandala and say your affirmation everyday. Affirm what you need most in your life.
Mandala means ‘circle’ in the Sanskrit language, and mandala art refers to symbols that are drawn, sketched or painted in a circular frame. Mandala art has been used throughout the world as a process of self-expression, in the service of personal growth and spiritual transformation. Tibetan Buddhism has employed mandala art for thousands of years to capture the images of the countless demons and gods which it believes both plague and uplift humanity. Navajo sand painters use them in their healing rites. Many native people use the Medicine Wheel, a mandala form, to connect to earth energies and the wisdom of nature.
My positive affirmation art came about when I started to meditate. During some meditations I would be guided to say positive affirmations and this invoked a feeling in myself that I had been lacking. Our society today relies on others to make us complete. We rely on others to approve of ourselves, to tell us that we’re beautiful, strong, talented, loved, healthy, intelligent, worthy, and so much more. It’s when we stop relying on others to fulfill our emotional and spiritual needs and learn that we are responsible for our inner peace that we can truly find our happiness.
The definition of positive is: possessing an actual force, being, existence, etc.
The definition of affirmation is: something that is affirmed, a statement or proposition that is declared to be true.
Put these two very powerful meanings together and add them to a hand created Mandala, and wow… you have a force that declares the truth. No doubt! Only truth!
You can make one too, you will need a Canvas, small mirror, glue to attach the mirror, a protractor to make several circles with. Acrylic or craft paint, a marker and some shaped letters (I used scrabble letters from an old game) to glue your affirmation on with.
Don’t think, just create.

Enjoy and Peace be ~IN
