I discovered the joys of coloring mandalas quite by accident. Drawn to them at first by their colors and patterns on the cover of a book, I printed out a free mandala meant for coloring and dusted off my colored pencils. Eventually I learned how much easier it was to discuss topics with my husband that were normally fraught with tension (like finances). I could color and listen, collect my thoughts, then respond in a more calm and organized way. And when I colored while on the phone, I was more likely to remember the conversation later.
Creating or simply coloring mandalas is a powerful process. Basically a form of active meditation, you suspend your inner dialogue of anxiety and fear while you draw images on a page or color a pre-made design. As with any form of active meditation you will be able to achieve the same calm, anxiety-reducing effects of traditional meditation without the difficulties of sitting still or trying to empty your racing mind with nothing but the sound of your own breathing to hold your attention. By meditating on the act of mandala coloring a person can easily be drawn into the circle to find their focus, and most importantly keep that focus.
And don’t forget about fruit as creative inspiration. You can see obvious mandalas when you cut citrus fruit in half. The segments of fruit surround a central stem and the seeds form additional decoration. Looking at a strawberry from the top down reveals a radiating pattern of seeds on a luscious bright red background.
