Perseverance Mandala Framed Print
Feng Shui means “wind/water” and is the ancient art aligning objects with the forces of nature to enhance our lives. Energy or “qi” (pronounced “chi”) is all around us and can be harnessed to improve the quality of our everyday lives.
The energy in our homes and around our person can enhance or impede our lives. Our prosperity; fame and reputation; Love and relationships; family; health; creativity and children; wisdom (skills and knowledge); career; and helpful people and
travel are all affected by qi.
|In feng shui, the home is divided into 9 zones called the bagua. Each section influences a different aspect of our lives. So you want to make sure the energy is positive and powerful to help you achieve your aims in life. For example, if you wanted to attract new love into your life, you would enhance the back, right section of your home which effects relationships and love. You attract good energy, first by clearing a space and removing negative influences, and then by intentionally placing items in the space that represent the outcome you want to achieve.|
Feng Shui Mandalas help attract positive energy to your space. Not only are they beautiful, but they are created using symbols, colors, and objects that are harmonious with your intentions.
What are Mandalas?
Mandala comes from a Sanskrit word meaning "circle” or "completion” and represents the Cosmos. Mandalas are used as spiritual teaching tools, to establish a sacred space, and as an aid to meditation. Plus they can attract positive energy to your person or your space.
Feng Shui Mandalas - Perseverance
This mandala was created to represent perseverance. The colors for perseverance are green and brown so these colors figure prominently in the mandala. Three photos were used: the Lotus Flower, a Tortoise, and an Oak Tree. The lotus flower is a Buddhist symbol of perseverance and resilience. Being an Aquatic flower, it grows underwater in murky, difficult conditions. It goes through the daily struggle to come out of muddy and dark waters and finally reach the vitality of sunlight. The tortoise is a symbol of perseverance. Even though the tortoise slow, it reminds us that we can accomplish our goal if we don’t give up. The Ancient Celtic people, the Greeks, and the Romans all held the oak tree as a symbol of strength, resistance, and perseverance. It is the oak tree’s nature to attract lightning and remain standing in its face. Oak trees can also live up to 300 years. These images were arranged into a collage and then transformed with intention into the mandala, Perseverance. You can do it!
