Nature Mandala | Fourteen

Today marks the half way point. I committed to 28 daily walks and making 28 mandalas 14 days ago.

On this reflection day, it's amazing how varied a simple practice can actually be.

I have needed to alter the route a few times, like walking it in reverse, zig zagging my way around it, walking it at varying speeds, somewhere between speed marching to a leisurely stroll, but interesting it has felt different each time.

Something simple can hold many teachings. such as building resilience, commitment and perseverance.

If you are wondering what this mini blog series is about, it all links to the 28 days of lockdown we are experiencing in the UK right now. Each day I go out for a walk and on my return I create a mandala.

The above Mandala is 14/28.

Wondering what a Mandala is?

A Mandala is a circle, a symbol.

'manda' = essence and 'la' = container.

A Mandala translates in 'sanskrit' terms as a container of essence.

It is sacred geometry, it can also be seen as a meditation device, and it carries magical healing properties for you and aids in tapping into your higher form of consciousness.

If you meditate on it, the layers and depth of messages it conveys is very healing and transformative.
