‘As much of heaven is visible as we have eyes to see.’ William Winter, poet.


The jewel and the dragon mandala encourages us to embark on our quest in life….to seek out and discover that which is most precious to us. There is magic in life, and if we look at the world through eyes of mystery and wonder then anything is possible. A tiny acorn can, and does, grow into a massive oak tree that lives for hundreds of years. Throughout life we experience many cycles of change just like the oak tree endures the constantly changing seasons. Each cycle creates another bark ring in the girth of the trunk recording our experience and growth. After many seasons our roots can reach deeply into the dark wisdom of the earth, feeding us with support and knowledge. We expand, moving upwards and outwards, our great canopy reaching out to bathe in the light.

Dragons are powerful guardians protecting the mysteries of life. They portray the courage and strength needed to follow through with our visions of achieving success and creating abundance and prosperity. The central dragon sleeps on the amethyst - the jewel that clarifies dreams and strengthens the connection to our inner wisdom and intuition. Your dreams, wishes and hopes need to be protected from doubt and fear or they will not grow into their full potential. They will remain but dreams.

Believe and be inspired by what you dream of having or doing with your life. Trust your inner voice urging you to take the risk, go forward, and give it a try.  You have worked hard, learned a lot, acquiring valuable wisdom and experience. This is not blind faith, rather an inner urge to expand, to accumulate wealth and reap the benefits of your labors. You are ready.



“The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious. It is the fundamental emotion that stands at the cradle of true art and true science.”
