A lot of times I feel that folks think of this mandala as something to use only if you want to be famous and that makes sense. If you want to be a successful actor or musician or if you want to win the Nobel peace prize, this would be a great mandala to wear or hang in your home. But it affects so much more than that.
If you want to be successful in business, you need to have a good reputation so people will trust you. That’s a no brainer. Think about it; what’s the first thing you do when you are trying to decide which realtor, plumber or contractor to use? You ask your friends about who is good and trustworthy and you go on the internet and look for reviews. How well thought of is this person? Are they reliable? This is true in all aspects of life. We all want to be well thought of in groups that are important to us. It is just human nature and common sense. Really in any aspect of our lives, reputation matters a lot; with our friends, our colleagues and our community.
The symbolism used in this mandala is straightforward. The color for Reputation is red. The shape is Triangle, the number is 9 and the element is fire. Symbols include: candles, the medicine wheel and the third eye. Consequently, for the collage I used several images of items in groups of nine; Nine red candles, lit and glowing, nine red triangles, and a medicine wheel with a feather attached. I originally tried to incorporate the third eye into the collage and used a photo of my son’s beautiful blue eye but it turned out a little creepy. I find that since I create my collages primarily using photographs, it is best not to use body parts in my mandalas.
To attract fame and/or a positive reputation wear this mandala, carry it or place it in the middle back section of your home or room.
