''Let the beauty we love be what we do.'' ~ Rumi
The day I was walking along the nature trail above the Pacific Ocean, I was especially grateful to be breathing in ocean air. It had been a week of much energy shifting with the full moon, and getting out into nature was the perfect stabilizer for some of the internal changes I was experiencing. This time of year the excitement of seeing new spring flowers blooming has pretty much passed, but I enjoy experiencing the changes in the cycles of life. This day the red clover was really catching my eye. It seemed to be sending out a special vibration that I wanted to capture in mandala form.
I looked up properties of the red clover and it has many benefits from adding more nitrogen to soil to being a blood purifier and having the ability to lower blood pressure. When I look at this mandala, it seems to say to me Be light. Be happy. Keep moving. Stay grounded. Enjoy life's many blessings. Rejoice.
