Light as a Fairy Mandala

As far back as I can remember I have been captivated by the teeny tiny flowers on this planet. I love their delicate itty bittyness. These are the blooms that  put me nose to nose with nature; and when I think about it I'm sure it was my fascination with these flowers in my childhood that first put me in touch with nature spirits, devas and fairies. I didn't really have a name for it then, but I sure felt their spritely energies. Kenilworth ivy, the source image for this mandala is considered an invasive and noxious weed by gardeners, but I think its adorable; and it got my attention one Sunday morning while I was roaming around the hood.

I love how the shadow and light in the photo translated into the mandala

The eleven points of the mandala help us in developing our intuitive natures, to listen deeply and feel much. Green is a color of  the heart and reminds us of our connection to nature. Fairies love those who take care of nature and clean up the environment. They like nice homes too. Purple's healing color is available to uplift , to soothe and mend.

When I feel into this mandala I am energized and rejuvenated. I get the message to lighten up. I hear the fairies laughing and playing and dancing  around the heartspace of the circle.

Do you have a connection with the fairies? I'd love to hear your stories.

Bright blessings

This is my favorite of the ones I have seen so far!

It's very cool that you do this.

I love your insight as well.

I wanted to share a movie I found about the secret practices of ancient nuns and monks - I thought its spirituality might intrigue you as it did me: http://www.mysteriesofthejesusprayer.com/
