- Draw the circle, square, triangle, spiral and equidistant cross and rank them in preference from one to five.
- Draw/create a mandala using the symbols in positions 1, 3 and 5
- If you decide to experiment and have a blog, leave a link in the comments section so we can see your mandala
- I would love to hear how you felt about your mandala or the process itself.
When I was creating digital mandalas to go with this series, I never really felt like the individual shapes were being isolated that well, so I thought I would do something different (since my favored shape in position 3 is the spiral= change) and draw my mandalas using the square(#1), spiral(#3) and circle(#5).

Even though the spiral is the central focus of this mandala, it felt equal to the other shapes. Change seemed more like an idea than something that was likely to occur anytime soon.

The spiral, along with four snakes (symbols of transformation), is contained in the square. The energy of the spiral feels trapped. I am looking for an answer to what looks like resistance.

I am grounded on a firm foundation. My nature is change, and I willingly embrace it. My life is spacious and free. I am whole.
