Connecting with Dreams

Once again I’ve turned to the colouring of mandalas to help me. This time it was to help me connect with the dreams I have for 2018. Thanks to my friend Rebecca at A Blissful Existence for the mandala and related ‘pondering’ questions to answer.

The choice of colour, the geometric design, all helps me to internally withdraw, connect with my soul and listen to what dreams are being whispered, and then to bring them into my conscious thought.

This is a process, an inner journey, calling the dreams, which in turns will help guide me to the paths my soul would like to travel for the year ahead.

The use of crystals helps me to further solidify these dreams in my mind, so they can be like a compass for the months ahead, especially if I lose my way a little (like all good travellers tend to do from time to time!). The colours of the crystals are important, they connect to the colours in the mandala. The green crystals I relate to new starts, significant for the start of the year, but also as the year unfolds, and the new adventures that this year specifically holds for me. The orange crystals I relate to creativity, expression and spirituality, all areas which are very important in my life, especially as an artist.

This ritual while simple, holds many layers, all helping me to connect to the dreams I have for this new year.

I’m ready for my dreams to come true this year!

The Heart of 2018

Once again thanks to A Blissful Existence I’m using the colouring of a mandala and crystals to connect with the new year and set positive focus for the months ahead.

I do find this process relaxing and powerful. It helps me to set my intention and goals for the new year.

There are so many layers of meaning here for me which flows naturally, the colours used, the shapes identified, helps me to set a clear path into the new year in a symbolic ritualistic way.

Through this process I have the affirmation, follow your heart, to guide me through the unknown of the year ahead. By having such an affirmation, I have a sort of compass that’s internal to remind me of what type of paths I want to tread this new year.

And now I’m ready for 2018!
