Welcome back to Mandala Monday!

Todays Mandala Mantra is all about the energy of the period of time called Retrograde.

I don’t know about you but retrograde energy kicks me in the booty. My energy gets drained for sure. I do a lot of reading on energy and sometimes each one of us can go thru a period called a “dark night of the soul”. (I definitely had one of these during the four months of energy over the summer months.)

A time when things transform in radical ways..shaking up what may have been very grounded and reliable for you. A time of “what am I here for? and “who am I?” Moments filled with clarity that shift dramatically into doubt and fear.

I see myself in all the reading I have been doing about this transformational energy period. I added more meditation to my days and journaling as well. I went back to my roots of art journaling and cleared the mental clutter. Once we get thru this energy period, our OWN energy can blast off the charts!

Interested in learning more about Retrograde Energy? Here is a wonderful explanation.

WHY MANDALA MONDAY?? I adore mandalas…I love them so much in fact I created a whole coloring book about them! What started out as my way of doodling my thoughts, became so much more. For thirty days, I created a mandala with an accompanying mantra. As I went thru my day, I would repeat this mantra. There is SO much power in words. A daily mantra captures your intention and places it out in the Universe where it can be heard and action can begin! Creating my coloring book “Mandala Mantras: 30 Inspirational Designs to Color” was an act of joy. My hope is that it will help teens and women of ALL ages understand just how powerful they are. (You can find my coloring book on Amazon worldwide.)
