Mandalas and Self-Discovery

Welcome to today's Self-Discovery Challenge.

You will be creating three different mandalas. One will represent your past, one your present, and the other your future.  

General guidelines for this project:
  1. Do not plan out what you are going to do in advance. Let yourself tap into your creativity, imagination, and subconscious.
  2. Use whatever materials you have around the house. You can use pens, pencils, watercolors, paint, markers, coloring pencils, crayons or pastels.
  3. Have fun. You can spread this out and work on one mandala a day. Whatever inspires you. 
  4. When choosing colors, go with what inspires you. There are no rules.
  5. Use any symbols or designs that speak to you. 
  6. Remember, it is the process that is important and not the outcome.  

Questions to help inspire you as you immerse yourself in the process.

Past and Present Mandalas:
  • What memories come up?
  • What colors come up?
  • What emotions come up?
  • What events come up?
  • What relationships come up?
  • What places come up?
  • What music comes up?
  • What lessons come up?

Future Mandala or Vision Mandala:

Now your future mandala is a bit different than the two others. You will use the discoveries you made while creating the past and future mandalas to inspire your vision for the future. 

  • What emotions do you want to cultivate moving forward?
  • What values do you want to embody?
  • What goals and aspirations do you want to accomplish?
  • What colors most represent your desired future?
  • What symbols, music, and objects most reflect your desired future?
  • What kind of relationships do you want to have?
  • What strengths do you want to explore?
  • What qualities do you want to embody?

Ways you can use your mandalas for further reflection and self-discovery:
  • Prompts for journaling.
  • Points of reference for meditations and visualizations.
  • Affirmations.
  • Items of inspiration in your sacred space.
  • Pieces of art for decorating your home and adding personal touches.

Please feel free to share your mandalas on my Facebook page.  I will start a thread with mine and you can simply add yours to the comment section.
