A couple of months ago I related the story of receiving a vision to blend the inspirational energies of Auralite crystal and hydrangea blooms into a series of mandalas. This is the second in that series of images.

I have been blessed to partner with the lovely poetess,Maureen Kwiat Meshenberg; the uplifting and inspiring words that poured out of her upon viewing this mandala are shared with you here. You may read more of Maureen's poetry on her Facebook page, Heart's Calling.

find that point of joy,
when all else falls away-
a center surrounded by,
love unfolding,
holding you-
when layers of resisting patterns,
come to reduce you-
make you numb.
and sorrowful.
to find that point of peace,
when shaken by your world-
like layers of light,
unfodling colors,
into serenity touching-
sweet consciousness.
when those moments,
fall from you-
and your smile comes form your soul,
completeness of being-
when all is unseeing,
and what you do see,
becomes melted into-
love's flowing.
grateful for all that has become,
the rest,
will make you-
don't let it break you,
breathe into your point-
of being,
it is there waiting for you-
the part of you,
that you already are.

Vernal Equinox Mandala

as spring seeds emerge-
through earth,
poking through-
green reaching towards,
the suns warm rays against blue.
that word that brings-
bringing life-
coming to me,
I see my fields turning-
I see my sky aching,
to push through in bloom.
waking in this moment to see,
my bloom and changes that-
bring me,
to my opening.

AHH Mandala - First in a Series

For the past year and a half, I have been honored and privileged to be an advocate for and caretaker of Auralite crystal, an amazing and most unusual high frequency 1.1billion year old stone that is emerging from the earth at this time. I credit Auralite with significantly assisting me twice in restoring my life, by coming to me at times when receiving its healing energies were critical, and I am blessed to be able to assist it now in walking out on the earth at this moment in our history.  

I meditate or spend time with one or more pieces of Auralite daily. I wear an Auralite pendant and feel  a part of me is missing when I take it off. This crystal has bonding properties that I have not experienced with any other stone.

Recently, while in a meditative dream state I sensed the Auralite make a request to create a mandala using his photograph (my gender preference) and combine it with the energies of hydrangea. I was so pleased with what came through, that I have decided to create a series of mandalas based on these two very giving sources – Auralite crystal and hydrangea blossoms.

Ahh Mandala is an acronym for one part Auralite mandala and two parts hydrangea mandala. I have been using this technique of blending  seemingly disparate imagery to create new multi-dimensional, high frequency patterns since the end of 2012. If you follow my blog, you might have seen other examples of this new focus here and here.

I love the feeling of expansion and opening in this mandala. Spring is beckoning and life forces are stirring. Take a deep breath, spread your arms wide  and go Ahhhhhhh. Perhaps the subtle vibrations of the Fruit of Life sacred geometry pattern embedded in this mandala adds to the feeling of lushness and renewal as well.

When fellow soulful cohort Sarah H viewed this mandala in one of my Facebook groups, she commented: 
What I feel is a powerful surge through the solar plexus and crown...and a unification of the chakras through the core energy (activating those above the body and below, as well as within). Love the playfulness yet powerfulness. Thank you for a lovely experience, Sue

Her comment was especially meaningful to me because she so beautifully tapped into  the inherent healing energies of the Auralite itself.
