Mandala Mindfulness with 14 Secrets

July 29, 2013

The last few weeks I’ve been following Lani’s and Susanna’s 14 Secrets Mandala Challenge:

Part 1 of the challenge introduced this prompt by Lani: “Think of your mandala as sacred and work consciously from a quiet place inside yourself that contains your goodness and compassion”. In response, I created the above digital mandala using one of my favorite creative e-curating sites, Polyvore. Lots of mandala inspiring imagery to be found here!

Having created this mandala on a Monday morning, I remember feeling sincere appreciation for this time and moment at the beginning of the week- as well as left the experience with setting my mandala’s intention with love & growth.

Part 2 of the challenge (with lots of inspiring links!) and a how to prompt by Susanna about digital mandalas, inspired me to further experiment with digitally transforming my original mandala created for Part 1 through this lens.

I discovered the app Kooleido and that the app’s full version provides the feature to upload your own photo to create an awesome digital mandala kaleidoscope in motion using this image.

Below are only a few of the still screenshots I took of my Love and Growth Mandala morphing in action into new forms and expanding with moving life before my eyes:

 To watch this transformation was absolutely soothing, relaxing, and completely brought my presence to the here and now. It was a very comforting experience to see the familiar details of colors, shapes, and symbols from my source image come together in new these mandala forms and patterns.

Thank you to Lani and Susanna for these 14 Secrets mandala prompts, links, and inspiration! Looking forward to the next part of this challenge…

You can participate every Monday in the 14 Secret’s Challenge here:
