Transcendent Harmony

I think our minds respond to things beyond this world. Take beauty: it’s a very mysterious thing, isn’t it?  I think it’s a response in our minds to perfection. It’s too bad, people not realizing that their minds expand beyond this world. ~ Agnes Martin

Infinite Peace Mandala

The stones of the Earth are singing peace, dear ones. Can you feel their song echoing in your stone-bones? Can you feel the peace they sing?
 ~ Message from Gaia via Tracie Nichols 
I am honored to be working with these new forms of amethyst coming out of the earth in Ontario, Canada. I am posting this mandala and its source image, a slice of auralite 23 crystal, as a means of introduction to this 1.1 billion year old crystal. My friend Doug Schwarzenberger, geologist and teacher of geology, physics and chemistry at the high school honors level (his website will be up soon), has been directly involved with the mining of these stones as well in the identification of the 23 mineral inclusions contained within. 

I am also pleased to share with you Tracie Nichols' Message from Gaia to accompany this mandala. Tracie helps women who love the earth and are on a spiritual or healing path to partner with Gaia, discover their soul's purpose and bring that purpose out in the world. You can learn more about Tracie and receive her daily Gaia messages by going to her website, Alchemy for the Earth.

As always, I would love to hear your response to this mandala. I feel alot of strength and softness in this stone when I wear it and feel its encompassing loving energy translated well into this mandala, which I imagine as a portal to another dimension.

Freedom Flowering Mandala

Gerbera daisies seem like one of nature's firework flowers, and so I chose this photograph to create a mandala to honor this day of spiritual blossoming.

The following words, part of a larger prayer spoken by intuitive abundance coach and spiritual teacher Sage Taylor Kingsley-Goddard, seemed like a perfect accompaniment to this mandala.

Let Your infinite divine heavenly radiance come flowing and flowering
Flowing and blooming and blossoming into the crowns
Of each and everyone of us
So that we can receive Your golden light
The light of abundance, the light of truth,
The light of love, the light of healing, the light of joy…
Bring the truth of who we are fully home into our feet
And all the way home into Mother Earth, fully grounding us, fully anchoring us,
Fully plugging us in, fully attaching us.
And yet, even though we are fully corded to Mother Earth,
We are free to float and to fly with Father Sky.
We are strongly tethered and yet free. 
~Sage Taylor Kingsley-Goddard
