Section 4 of the 2011 Mandala of the Year is now ready for downloading and coloring. If you have yet to do the previous ones…
I encourage you to focus on an issue, topic, sacred writings or whatever is of interest to you while coloring this section throughout the month of April. For me, I’m using Gerald Jamposky’s “Love is Letting Go of Fear” book as my guide. As it turns out, he offers 12 lessons which means I can use one lesson per section. Lesson 4 is “I am determined to see things differently.” As I color this section throughout the month of April, I’ll color with this lesson in mind.
In the Section 1 post, I offered a variety of suggestions for focus topics to use with your colorings. Continuing with the Astrological option, you can focus on the fourth house, which covers home, your inner world, inner security, domestic affairs, family life, parental influence, the past, childhood, deep root influences, private thoughts, nurturing. Anything going on in your life with any of these areas? Currently the sun travels through the sign of Aries, the sign of the ram. Characteristics of Aries are self-centered, self-directed, leader, pioneer, courage, executive, energetic, impatient, need to learn coordination, completion and conservation, often has headaches from a failure to relax, arrogance and the need to dominate. How do you relate to any of these words? Positively? Negatively?
I would love for you to share your coloring experience in the comments section of this post. What, if any, are you using as your theme? How often do you color? What insights have your gained? I plan to share my experience here as well.
Also you’re welcome to upload photos of your colorings to the Flickr page for the Mandala of the Year. I’ve posted a series of photos showing my progress throughout the month of January.
joyfully, Maureen, The Mandala Lady
