Do you believe you are too grown up to color? Think again! Once you learn about Mandala Meditation, you wish you could have a set of pencils to the ready…
But what exactly is a Mandala?
A Mandala is a sacred circle that represents the universe. It is simple geometric figure that has no beginning and no end, whose shape is said to promote relaxation and the balance of the senses. Tibetan monks spend days forming mandalas with colored sand, only to brush them away within seconds. This symbolizes the transitory nature of material life, it’s a beautiful and melancholic ritual that has been perpetuated for centuries.
Mandala Meditation and Color Therapy
Have you ever heard of art and color therapy before? Try it out! Print out a page from any coloring book, and pick up some pencils or crayons. Listen as your hand gently scrapes on the paper, back and forth, filling in all the blank spots. This process will soothe your mind, and separate you from the busy outside world. Think of your thoughts as colors, and while you color you will empty your negative feelings on the paper, becoming a blank slate on which you can paint new, more beautiful images.
