Recovery and Sobriety Glass-fronted Mandala Pendant Necklace
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.
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 - Recovery and Sobriety
This Mandala was created with images representing Recovery and Sobriety.
- In the Center is the Yin Yang symbol, which symbolizes balance and inner peace and is often associated with recovery.
Other symbols used include:
- The triangle within a circle; the triangle represents three vital concepts during recovery: strength, willpower, and hope. Some people interpret this as the spiritual, mental, and physical parts of their lives. The circle represents the supportive communities enable recovery and the power of these communities to foster change.
- The Phoenix; Symbolizing rebirth. In ancient folk tales, the phoenix was a bird that would burst into flames as it died. Bur then the bird would be reborn from the ashes.
- The Lotus: Like the phoenix, the lotus flower represents rebirth. It also thrives despite living in a difficult environment.
- The Semicolon: Is a sign of strength and rebirth. Suicide prevention programs initially adopted this symbol. After all, a semicolon will appear in a sentence that a writer could have easily ended; and yet, they chose not to do so. Because mental health and addiction recovery are so closely intertwined, this makes the semicolon one of the more ambiguous recovery symbols. Thus, it often holds great appeal to those in the recovery community. Furthermore, this particular symbol may be especially intriguing for those in early recovery, as they continue to choose to walk the path to sobriety one step at a time.
