The making of a mandala is a meditative practice. In mandala design and coloring, one draws upon the subconscious for creation, for peace.
-Ann Ree Colton, The Third Music
The mandala technique and keys to interpretation are described in more detail in Ann Ree Colton’s book, The Third Music
The circle symbolizes the physical sun, the individual, the soul, protection, the Eternal. The circle with a dot or Bindu in the center symbolizes the Eternal Self, the Christ within, the Invisible Sun, the Celestial Angels’ helps, Archangel protection.
When one draws a mandala in the spirit of devotion, giving himself wholly to God, miracles come into his life – changing and transforming….
One begins the making of a mandala knowing it to be a form of meditation. He draws a circle, and within the center he places a dot, which represents the Bindu-point or seed outpicturing the soul’s pulsation.
The mandala is a kaleidoscopic process of forms, patterns, and energies flowing out of the pulsation point of the soul. All persons are in an unceasing state of creating these mandala or geometrical forms from the soul’s pulsation….
One does not need to be an artist. To make a mandala is not an art session.
How to make a mandala:
Use any size paper desired.
Put a plate down on the paper and draw a circle.
Use pencil, colored pencils, crayons, pastels, pen and ink, or paints.
Before beginning your mandala, have a few seconds of silent contemplation. Ask God to speak through your unconscious. Give thanks. Do not seek to draw or reproduce any vision you have had. Let the mandala be the canvas for your soul, and let the Esse-flow of the Holy Spirit flow into your hands, into your heart.
Put a dot (Bindu point) in the exact center.
Place the palette of colors before you and choose the colors to which you are drawn.
Start the flow of color from the Bindu point.
Let the inner from your unconscious come forth. Place on the paper the colors and designs according to your mood.
Do not intellectualize your mandala. Be careful to retain a feeling of receptivity. Let your soul speak to you in color so that you may unite with your soul’s medallion and grace. The continued practice of the mandala results in mind-strength, soul-poise, and overflowing of spiritual gifts.
Everything in the mandala practice is learning the force and soul fields of the self, the mind, and the emotions.
