About this design:
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 had completed my Reiki level 1 so I channeled 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 . 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 instil 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:
-The new moon is a time for new beginnings and manifesting a new path.
-A full moon represents a time of letting go of what no longer serves you.
-The phases of the moon represent our ever-changing energetic shifts and the i
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 and India.
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
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. Perhaps you will light the way for yourself, or someone else, to find the way out of darkness.
