Kudos! Check out some of these fun mandalas that were entered into the July Mandala Challenge. It was wonderful to see all of the creativity flowing in the Sharing Circle this last month.
Kayla created a labyrinth following the instructions in the Labyrinth Workshop and colored it in orange the color of the sacral chakra. The word, play, repeated in the center captures Kayla’s intention to invite more play into her life. I can see Kayla running her finger along the path of this labyrinth as she asks that powerful and simple question that I shared at the beginning of the audio recording.
In the chakra retreats, participants get a beautiful envelope in the mail with an oracle card tucked inside. Circling the sacral chakra drawn with the sacral chakra stencil are words from the oracle card that Linda received. What a beautiful example of creative note taking.
This is perhaps the most unique entry for the July Mandala Challenge and one that capture the spirit of both the sacral chakra with the zesty orange colors and the solar plexus with the words, “Go for it!” This is a great example of how two chakras come together. Here the message is so clear to have fun and play like a child! Nicely done SusanJoy.
July Mandala Challenge Winner! Karen went above and beyond this month by creating a daily sacral chakra mandala using the stencils. Here is a selection of the 31 sacral chakras that Karen completed this month. Listen to the recording on how to use the chakra stencils as part of a spiritual practice. August Mandala Challenge
