Step Four: Watch the design take life with every stroke. Allow yourself to experience the movements, hear the sounds of the pencils on paper, or feel the markers as they glide across the page. As thoughts or pictures pop into your head (and they will) simply acknowledge them and then return your focus to the coloring. The movement will always bring you back.
Then go about mindfully colouring it in, as you consider every aspect of the relationship. You can find compassion, forgiveness, understanding and may discover a new way to celebrate the relationship. Imagine what a fabulous gift such a coloured in mandala would make.
Coloring is an activity long thought of as the child’s domain. It’s pretty easy to see how coloring is beneficial to children. They can learn about shapes and colors, and experiment with different artistic mediums. Moms and restaurant owners have known for ages that a few crayon and paper or placemat to color on can still the restless child. Pre-school and elementary teachers know that coloring is a great interactive activity because it encourages concentration and focus while allowing the child to be creative and expressive.
Mandala colouring is also a great tool for meditation.
The mandala drawings, which are circles filled with geometric patterns, change their appearance with selected colors. There may be three of you coloring and each of you will have a different kaleidoscopic view because of the color choices made by each individual.
You may find that you have outgrown crayons and want to color using something with a different texture and a different feel. Pencil crayons and felt pens are an affordable alternative. But you may want to spend a bit of extra money and try colored pencils, Conte Crayons, oil pastels, pastels or watercolor pencils.
