This mandala is about awakening Third Eye consciousness. “Ajna” in sanskrit, this chakra provides the energy for spiritual reflection, insight, and contemplation. A departure from traditional geometric mandalas, this series was produced in a flow of consciousness making meditation. The organic patterns were made with the words intuition, intellect, protection, and projection. It’s about seeing clearly into the past as well as the future, letting go of regret and worry.
What is a mandala? It’s an art form that reminds us of our relation to the infinite, the oneness that extends beyond our bodies and our minds. The products are often beautiful, but the process of making them in a meditative state is the real gem.
Sometimes described as Flow State, this phenomenon is about optimal experience, and it’s of great interest to me in my work. Flow State can be achieved in meditative art making of all kinds, and especially in mandala making. Read more about my process and transcendence through art making in my portfolio.
