diy - mandala 'Transforming Calangela'

Transforming Petals Arranged Mandala for Mind space 

A Mandala decorated with Dried Calangela flowers in
Orange for creativity, transformation, self-awareness and
intuition. The Mandala I decorated is the Buddhist version
of the cosmic dancer/destroyer of the 'little self' (link) The
word Mandala is Sanskrit for 'sacred circle' these circular
designs symbolize the notion that life is never ending.
Representing wholeness, continuity, connection, unity,
harmony and the cycle of life with no edges or angles. A
cosmic diagram reminds us of our relation to infinity,
extending beyond and within our bodies and minds. With
spiritual significance the Hindus were one of the first to
use Mandala’s as spiritual tools, but the most familiar
Mandala’s are the ones made by the Buddhists. In
various spiritual traditions, Mandala’s are used to facilitate
meditation and used in sacred rites as a trans-formative
tool to assist with healing. From Chapter ‘Mandala’ (Link)

... Snip off the flower buds
... Then arrange in the flowers around the Mandala. When these dried they were esily stored away in jar. Did you know? Tibetan Buddhist Monks and Native American Indians all use Mandala’s as a way of evoking spiritual energy, meditation and healing. Psychologist Carl Jung used Mandala’s with his clients and for his own personal growth. His studies revealed their creation allowed a deep healing to take place from within the human psyche
