Ten mandalas, five kinds of energy

Ten mandalas feels like quite a milestone. Here I wanted to put them together and explore the relationships between them. As I look back at them, I see that the mandalas have different kinds of energy in them.

There are two that are really forceful, and dramatic. These are Angry and Impact.

These mandalas have the highest energy levels; the energy is inspiring, but can also be intrusive and uncomfortable.

Then there are two which also have lots of energy, but it’s a lighter, more boyant energy. These are Joy and Exuberant.

In these there is a happy, swirling movement; still filled with energy, but with elements of freedom and fun.

The energy in Love and Growing is about a sense of progress, of slow movement, with the results becoming evident over time.

Here we sense the energy as calm, but powerful. The movement is not obvious, but inexorable.

The next type of energy shows up in Hope and Harmony.

These two mandalas have a vibrational energy. There is not much movement, but there is a sort of background hum to each of them. Tiny, repeated movements that have a cumulative effect.

And finally, in Happy and Peace we see a stillness. These are states of contentment.

There is little movement in these mandalas. Rather they represent ideal or perfect states without striving, or any need for change.

I have started working on my next set of mandalas, filling in some gaps that I see in the series thus far. I look forward to sharing them here soon.
