Inspire Me Thursday's theme this week is "Fun & Games...and this Diamond Drum Mandala was much FUN to make with all its colors, diamonds, squiggles and wiggles. It's funny, I didn't know what it was...I was "going for" a vase, but it didn't look like that to me..so it was the mystery mandala for a while.
Then, my friend Patrica saw it and said, "Oh...a drum!" Thank you Pat!...I agree...it's a drum! What FUN this is....it can sometimes become the GAME of... "What's that Mandala?" That's what's so great about these mandalas, you can't mess them up...the imagination just makes of it what it will...and I must say...that makes it more FUN! -- And...I can see and feel its vibrational beat...which makes me wanna just move & groove...and shake, rattle & roll!
Come join-in the mystery, and the FUN...& GAMES of creating mandalas*. This one even looks like it's having fun, fun, fun! (By the way...this is mandala #68.)
* Creatimg mandalas is fun, easy, and reveals ourselves to ourselves in one way or another. Here's what I do: Just draw or trace a circle (I use a CD)... and color or draw inside of it without giving it much thought...just choose what to do moment by moment....have fun...just play...you'll get a feel for when it's complete. Be detached to its outcome...an unintended mark or blob becomes another message; there are no mistakes. When you're done...put it where you can see it and look at it every chance you get. Then make another one!! ...and put it so you can see it too. Repeat. Sooner or later they will speak to you in some way...the symbols, colors, etc. you've drawn can be very revealing. The mandalas we make offer metaphysical insights to us. It's yet another form of intuitive creativity.
