Mandala is a sanskrit word for circle. Circles are a tool for self-knowledge, meditation, healing, and expanding our consciousness. They have been used by ancient cultures for centuries in their sacred art, medicine shields, in nature, and numerous other ways. When we draw or write within a circular shape, amazing symbols and messages begin to emerge from our inner eye and inner wisdom. Exploring the circle you can discover your soul's true nature.
Circles can be overlapped over and over to create new shapes as in the ancient Seed of Life or Flower of Life discovered by Leonardo daVinci. Or simply overlapping two circles creates a common space between them. This geometry is called the Vesica Piscis. It can represent cooperation, shared wisdom, joining, synergy, common ground or whatever you see in it.
Try it for yourself. Very simply trace a circular bowl or use a compass. Try overlapping the same size circles in different ways. Try drawing inside of one circle and see how it feels.
