I Am Here Mandala (Circles of Love Series) © Sue O'Kieffe 2010

The way is where and who you already are, sleeping in your very being. Rumi
My intuition suggested that the tillandsia wanted to be transformed into a seven pointed mandala. During the creation process, I heard the words "I Am Here" come through me. I know that seven is a mystical number and is considered to be a number of sacred wholeness. The soft greens and blues resonate in my heart and throat centers. When I stepped back from the computer to contemplate the mandala, I experienced how bright the seven pointed star shined and reflected back that we are all brilliant beings.
I would love to hear how you experience this mandala and how it speaks to you.

Beautiful mandala. The tillandsia is a wonderful inspiration.
While reading your blog both times...
my ears and third eye were all vibrating. I closed the blog to post a note on fb for you and decided to come back here and post this. I re-read it and same thing happened.
The colors are beautiful. This is a very powerful energy coming out from this Mandala.
I believe it is a catalyst to helping people 'open up' to their own presence of "I Am Here".
Thank you so much for posting your comments here. It is such a gift for me to receive this information. I know how the mandalas affect me, but what's important to me is how they speak to you.
My seven-sided Anishinabe-tradition healing drum is supposed to embody/include the energy of the seven directions. East, South, West, North, Above, Below, Within....this mandala feels like it vibrates and initially, I feel it in my throat chakra and my third eye, and then it moves to my heart, vibrating like the drums I so love. LOL, I guess everything goes to drums, for me!
It is beautiful, and "I Am Here" felt so connected to The Power of Now, by Eckhart Tolle - a good new friend shared CD's of Tolle reading from his book last night, and this felt like a continuation of the way it felt to listen to what Tolle is teaching. For me. Love this! Beautiful, Sue.
Thank you so much for your thoughtful feedback. I love what you said about Tolle. I watched a DVD of him once and fell asleep; I think because he vibrates at such a high level. I too get a sense of high pitched whirring when I feel into this mandala.
Hi there Sue-Your mandalas are just amazing! I would love to know what program you are using to make these digitally-long time no see girl friend, but glad to say I am back in creating mode!
The circles of love is fascinating-I could look at it for hours-makes me feel like painting-the textural effect really pulls on my heart strings-more please!
I use photoshop. There is a tutorial posted in the side bar that explains the basics. Doesn't work in Photoshop Elements though.
