Mandala (mon-dah-lah) means “circle” or “completion,” and represents wholeness. It is a cosmic diagram reminding us of our relationship to infinity, extending beyond and within our bodies and minds. Mandalas are circular designs symbolizing the never-ending life cycle. They aid in meditation and serve as a symbolic map of the universe and pathway to liberation. These designs can be created by individuals to represent their journeys through life, telling the story of where they have been. In some cases they can reveal the individuals life path.
We are already whole, but life can nudge or knock us off center. We go through constant cycles of death and rebirth as we journey through life and process lessons. Often, life gets busy and we begin to get stressed, distracted, or disconnected. We become unbalanced as life’s pressures build, overwhelming our emotions and our minds bringing rise to physical pain. The longer we live in this depleted state, the more detached we become from living our fullest expression of life. When we slow down to reconnect and honer self-care, we begin to tune in, to listen and to make changes rediscovering our balance, truth and clarity.
I share my life path with you through my journey of yoga and the healing arts. Every practitioner has a unique experience, interpretation and expression of these ancient wisdoms. Sometimes we need some assistance to recenter and realign. Creating connections with others and slowing down to tune in to your own truth, shines light where darkness may reside. This is how we heal and renew. As always, the light within me respects and honors the light within you, let’s journey together. I look forward to connecting, on the yoga mat, in a conversation, or during a healing session. We are all on the path to remembrance, all we need to do is slow down and connect.
“Too often we underestimate the power of touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential of turning a life around.” ~Leo Buscaglia
