"Gratitude-joy!"

Ahh...gazing upon this mandala sets my heart aflutter. I realize that this is what my gratitude for joy feels like...and looks like. Thank you Gratitude-joy for showing your face to me...for coursing through my being. -- Some heart-thoughts in honor of our kinship:

I am Gratitude-joy!
I dance in your heart
and set your soul a-purring...
...and
making your heart...content.
~ ~ ~ ~
I am thankful
that Gratitude-joy...
lives in me...
moves through me...
as
love...
peace...
beauty...
love...
creativity...
gratitude...
and joy

All is well...
Gratitude-joy is here.

"Cosmic Sunflower"

What presence the sunflower has. Statuesque. Bold. Dramatic, yet simple. The casual elegance of the sunflower has captured my heart and imagination. It speaks volumes without uttering a word. Ah, the power of its presence...not many can resist a smile while amid sunflowers. In a breath, they court your heart, and we are theirs....smiling and smitten.
Thank you, dear sunflower!
This post is in honor of the Autumn creativity prompt at The Mandala Oasis Yahoo Community.

Namaste / Honoring

As I look gaze upon this mandala, I see "honoring" - Namaste - the divine within me, salutes the divine within you.
The left side with the darker blue, and the right side with the lighter blue that surrounds the green. Working spontaneously and intuitively I didn't know what this mandala would look like when I finished it. A few days later that I noticed the two blues... placed like bookends on each side...supporting what's in between; what's at the center. I made this mandala on 9/11... a way of honoring where I was in my heart center; an honoring for all whose lives were changed that day. Namaste.

"New Vistas"

New vistas beckon...
This mandala is a departure for me.
What are all those squares doing in my mandala? Afterall... I'm a swirl girl.
Not on this day though. Those squares must've shown up for a reason.
Well, I did make this mandala on Septemeber 11th.
I think it's my soul's way of acknowledging
that on that day our world was forever changed, dramatically...
and therefore so was I...and so were we all.
I now know this mandala is honoring and acknowledging
that there's been a huge change...
and inspite of it we must see new, improved vistas...for peace and love.

I am in awe...yet again of this Mandala Medicine ..it knows just what it's doing. It reveals new journeys and impressions, that make up the Mosaic of the Soul. Thank you, Mandala Medicine for being a soothing, homeopathic balm.

Mystery



This mandala is a bit of a mystery. I just noticed though, that the curvaceous triangle that evolved as I worked on it is very similar to this mandala that I made a few months ago. I'm looking forward to discovering...and decoding the symbols and shapes that continue to show up - as well as the colors. Right now, I'm just embracing, and contemplating the mystery.

Tasty Tropical Breezes

"The really nice breezes blow through my body,
and into my soul. " ~Astrid Alauda
.
"Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm,but to add color to my sunset sky." ~Rabindranath Tagore
.
"Only those in tune with nature seem to pick up on the energy in wind. All sorts of things get swept off in the breeze - ghosts, pieces of soul, voices unsung, thoughts repressed, love uncherished, and a thousands galore of spiritual ether. Wind is an emotional rush because emotions are rushing by." ~Drew Sirtors

"I Love What I See"

The Great Vision of my life
has courted me...and I say "I do".
I love what I see
and what It has shown me.
I love working to bring that Vision into being.
I am thankful for, and I LOVE
the Dream Team that Life has given me,
and I joyfull give to the them.
My heart glad!
The Great Vision of my life
has courted me...
I lovingly surrender and say "yes" to Its proposal.
I say "yes" to the Beloved Vision
that flows to and through me.
"Yes, I will bring you into this world.
Thank you for choosing me."
I love what I see...
I am thrilled to let it pour through me...
now and forever more.

Colorful Horizons

This mandala adorns a blank page in a brand new turquoise journal,
which hold notes, ideas and plans of action
for a new project I am birthing.
It reminds me that life's horizons are...
colorful...
vibrant...
and expanding
...blooming as I like to say.
It reminds me that not only is my project counting on me to birth it...
it reminds me that everything expands
or contracts as is needed for it to be so...
this includes my well being.
Thank you.

Shower of Light

We are each gifted in a unique and important way. It is our privilege and our adventure to discover our own special light. ~Mary Dunbar
.
There are two ways of spreading light; to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it. ~Edith Wharton

Light gives of itself freely, filling all available space. It does not seek anything in return; it asks not whether you are friend or foe. It gives of itself and is not thereby diminished.
~Michael Strassfeld
.
People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in their true beauty is revealed only if there is light from within.
~Elisabeth K├╝bler-Ross

Celtic Circle


It's all about perspective.
It amazes me how this mandala moves...and is an optical illusion.
Sometimes I see the Celtic Cross
and sometimes I see the pinwheel moving and drawing me in.
There's also the rope-like circle of pink, purple and blue
that plays hide and seek with me.
Other images continue to reveal themselves
each time I view this mandala.
This could also be called "The One and the Many"
which we work with in SoulCollage.
That's the idea that we all are "the many"...varied expressions
of "the One" creative source.
It reminds us of our indivisability from the One.
.
Another spontaneous image...shines through.
Thank you mandala journey.
