Randy took an iron pole and drove it into the ground at the center of our backyard. He tied a string to it and walked outward from the center pulling the string tightly and using it as a guide to mark a large circle where he intended to start our garden. He blessed the ground as a sacred place and then made a rough drawing of a design for the garden. Each quadrant features a color, a cardinal direction, and component of life associated with it. There is a goldfish pond in the north, a fire pit in the south, metal ornaments in the east and a wooden bench in the east. We’ve placed an altar in the middle where we leave gifts such as herbs, gem stones, coins and seeds to thank the gnomes and faeries who help our garden grow!
You could think of coloring as letting your inner child come out and have a fun time, or you could think of this activity as a form of meditation. Choosing colors and the gentle, repetitive motion of your hand as you bring color to paper helps quiet your mind–bringing your usual rapid-fire thoughts down to a much slower pace.
1. The fun part – you can only do it right!
Step Two: Flip through a coloring book and pick the first design that peaks your interest. I offer some free sample pages on my website (listed below) that have been designed specifically for active meditation.
Below are basic step-by-step instructions that will help you quickly learn how to meditate while coloring. If you are ready, grab your supplies, find a quiet space and give yourself 10-20 minutes to enjoy this peaceful form of stress relief.
If you want to give your kid the most excellent gift for the Christmas season, then give him a Mandala Designer Drawing Machine. This is one of the most gratifying and wonderful toys that have ever come out and with your help, your little kid can actually have one!
