I am busy busy busy getting ready for my art opening, but I did want to post this mandala in honor of the 40th anniversary of earth day. When I created the mandala, I was thinking about some people I know who are journeying in Peru. I have felt drawn to be there, too, at that shamanic healing retreat known as Chimbre, and maybe someday I will be. Peru is definitely on my bucket list.

I've known for a long time about the energetic vibrations I feel when I am out in nature and it is that vibrational energy I want to capture when I create this mandala art. This morning I read this wonderful article about the electro-magnetic waves that everyone and everything radiates, and how we can aid the planet by controlling our emotional output. Here is the link. It shows me more and more how everyone and everything is connected. It's nice to have a little science to back up what mystics have always known.

Enjoy the Green Love and have a great day!

Wow, it is almost like a stained glass work on the edges. I like the four symmetry for earth day -- the four directions, possibly?

Happy Earth Day.

Hi Laura, Your tendonitis must be better. Thanks for your comments.

Ellie, I like the symmetry and balance of four. It could be for the 4 directions or the 4 elements. Whenever I sit down to create a mandala, I ask spirit for direction on how many points to use for the photo I have chosen, and I was guided to use four. I really like how it turned out.
