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.
Mandala No.9: Angry
Mandala No.3: 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.
Mandala No.4: Joy
Mandala No.6: 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.
Mandala No.8: Love
Mandala No.5: Growing
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.
Mandala No.7: Hope
Mandala No.10: 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.
Mandala No.2: Happy
Mandala No.1: Peace
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.
