The color green, for Lynn.
♥At the end of last year, I donated a 12" x 12" mandala art canvas to The Center for Living Well for their year end fundraiser. I was so touched when the studio's director, Dawn, contacted me to ask if I'd be willing to create a similar piece of art, in the color green, for her friend Lynn.
heart chakra, breathing into that center and visualizing infinite love for Lynn. I prayed that she would feel the depths of her friendship with Dawn when she gazes at her mandala, and that she would find a little peace in it as I do when I am with nature.
You can see a photo of Ann's canvas with last Friday's quote by clicking here. It's hard to tell by that photo, but there's a lot of teal used as the base color, as Ann is an ovarian cancer survivor. Twice! Those of you who know my mom's history will immediately get that connection for me. So much of my heart and soul and a bit of my mom's spirit went into the mandala for Ann. The difference with the second mandala was that I knew more about Ann and was able to be specific in my prayers for her as I created. I held space for her for continued strength and grace, and I meditated on the three higher chakras as those were the colors I used.
2016 holds a lot of new opportunities for me. One of those opportunities is being able to leave my corporate job and pursue living my dream of teaching yoga. I also have plans to work in hospice care, plus I want to create and share my art. As part of my quest to let my light shine, I have created a listing in my Etsy shop for custom prayer mandalas. You can check it out by clicking here.
I'd be so grateful if you would say a little prayer for me; if you could hold positive thoughts and believe with me that I am heading in the right direction.
A fresh start. Vitality and new growth.
I find it easy being green.
