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 sometimes we forget. We go through endless 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. If we don’t pause to create a consistent routine of self-care, our emotional body also becomes unbalanced and our physical body may experience pain. As we become depleted, we may feel like we are not living the full life we are meant to live in our minds, bodies and spirits.
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
