About this design:
Mexican Moon- a design for manifesting love and compassion-
I felt motivated to do this specific design after I returned home from visiting Mexico (where I had once lived and gone to school) and the country was subsequently rocked with a series of deadly earthquakes. I felt helpless not being able to comfort friends that I had recently visited. Prayers didn’t feel like they were enough.
I have my Reiki level 1 so I channelled my energy into creating a visual version of my prayers. We live in a tumultuous world that needs more love and compassion and the more people that can share their light, the more we can collectively heal.
The mandala, as a tool for meditation helps ground, connect and instil feelings of peace. I have used colours and symbols to help manifest love and compassion or send some out to someone else, or for the world. The colours and symbols (e.g. 4 hearts, cacti, sun rising, lunar cycle) represent seeds of love, hope, change and growth to manifest into something bigger. Here are some more things about this design:
o The moon:
- A full moon represents a time of letting go of what no longer serves you
- The new moon is a time for new beginnings and manifesting a new path
- The phases of the moon represent our ever-changing energetic shifts and the inevitable changes that come with cycles and the dawn of every new day
o Green foliage represents growth and references our cellular connection to plants and nature. Intertwined, randomly yet completely aligned
o Flowers are fragile yet resilient and are so amazingly beautiful. They represent growth and surprise us with their incredible colours and perfectly formed petals
o Centre mandala flower- medicinal flower
o Yellow marigold flowers- represent the fragility of life and are often used in ceremonies in Mexico and India
o Roses represent love, and in Mexico, a damask rose is a spiritual symbol of Guadalupe, a mother of the people
o Translucent clouds clearing skies after troubled times. A little darkness in the perfect world
o Birds represent freedom, taking flight on your dreams
o Monarch butterfly represents change, beauty and determination
o The night sky funnels into the day, while the daylight envelopes the night sky
Consider this design to be a prayer, a wish, a hope for healing. Healing for the sick, the sad, the hurting with the intention of helping build love and compassion to affect the world in a better way. Heal the world and heal yourself. Perhaps you will light the way for someone else, or for yourself, to find the way out of darkness.
