"Getting to the Point" - Creativity Prompt
I was in need of shifting from my logical left-brain into my intuitive, spontaneous, creative right-brain. This mandala process has deepened my kindship with spontaneity and intuition, yet from time to time my rational mind has tried to rule; and I want to allow this mandala process continue to take me deeper into my heart. So...
...I gave myself a time limit for creating a mandala. ..rather exciting. I set my timer for 20 minutes, ...it was both exhilarating and relaxing. After 10 minutes I was more than half-way done. I was not attached to the outcome of what I was making, I was just having a good time. It feels so good to let the Creative Spirit soar!
Soon after the mandala was done I noticed that all the pathways joined into one point and I heard withn me: 'Getting to the Point'... the most important point whatever it might be in the moment for me. That message is steering me back to where I need to be in many areas of my life, that's where I've set my intention and attention. Thank you Mandala Process!
I invite you to give it a try! Gather your materials. Set your timer for 20 minutes or so, and go for it! If you're new to making mandalas for self-expression & self-discovery I explain it here . And, since it's all about expressing what's inside of you, artistic experience in not necessary. Whatever comes up and out is what's meant to surface. - I invite you to share your mandalas with us at the Mandala Oasis Yahoo! Community. We are wild about mandalas, and you are most welcomed to join us!
