Mexican moon- a meditation for manifesting love and compassion-
I felt motivated to do this specific manifestation after I returned home from visiting Mexico (where I had once lived and gone to school) and the country was subsequently rocked with a series of deadly earthquakes. I felt helpless not being able to comfort friends that I had recently visited. Prayers didn’t feel like they were enough.

I recently completed my Reiki level 1 so I channelled my energy into creating a visual version of my prayers.
I picked up my paintbrush and began creating with the intention of pouring the love I felt into this design and manifesting healing energy for anything or anyone else in need of love and compassion.

We live in a tumultuous world that needs more love and compassion and the more of those that have light to share, are able to shine, the more we can collectively heal.

The mandala, as a tool for meditation helps ground, connect and instill feelings of peace as you settle into your meditation practice. I have used colours and symbols to help manifest your love and compassion or send some out to someone else, or for the world. The colours and symbols (e.g. 4 hearts, cacti, sun rising, lunar cycle) represent seeds of love, hope, change and growth to manifest into something bigger. Here are some more things about this mat design:
o The moon:
- A full moon represents a time of letting go of what no longer serves you.
- The new moon is a time for new beginnings and manifesting a new path.
- The phases of the moon represent our ever-changing energetic shifts and the inevitable changes that
come with the death of every evening and the dawn of every new day.
o Green foliage represents growth and references our cellular connection to plants and nature. Intertwined,
random and yet completely aligned.
o Flowers are fragile yet resilient and are so amazingly beautiful. They represent growth and surprise us with
their incredible colours and perfectly formed petals.
o Centre mandala flower- medicinal flower
o Yellow marigold flowers- represent the fragility of life and are often used in ceremonies in Mexico.
o Roses represent love, and in Mexico, a damask rose is a spiritual symbol of Guadalupe, a mother of the
people.
o Translucent clouds clearing skies after troubled times. A little darkness in the perfect world.
o Birds represent freedom, taking flight on your dreams
o Monarch butterfly represents change, beauty and determination
o The night sky funnels into the day, while the daylight envelopes the night sky

Consider this design to be a prayer, a wish, a hope for healing. Healing for the sick, the sad, the hurting with the intention of helping build love and compassion to affect the world in a better way. Heal the world and heal yourself. Pay it forward. Our purpose is to love and help one another. Perhaps you will light the way for someone else, or for yourself, to find the way out of darkness.
