For me change is exciting and requires work. That creative urge to try something new, go on an adventure, to re-arrange the house, to experience something different....to explore something within myself and visit parts of myself that I do not know well. This mandala is about that.


‘Change is part of every life. Resisting is often as futile as it is frustrating.’ Anonymous

Water is seen as the source of life itself. As a fluid it moves in the path of least resistance, symbolizing wise action. It represents the power of adaptability and transition, because it is able to change from liquid, to solid, to vapour and back again. Water is symbolic of emotion, intuition and the interconnected flow of energy within all living things. Energy is in a constant state of movement.

The cold blooded fish and the warm blooded human are joined to create the Mermaid. Symbolically she tempts you to explore opposing parts of your personality, and to connect with them.

Seductive and charming, mermaids live in water and lure you with their irresistible song. They are persuading you to risk deeper emotions, risk diving into the subconscious and other primitive realms of your mental perception and to re-emerge with that wisdom. This is a natural process just as breathing is to the mermaid who returns to the surface for air.

Even though the primitive parts of your nature are challenging, you find yourself fascinated and drawn to encounter them just as you find yourself fascinated or attracted to others holding those qualities. You are ready to emotionally accept those contrasting emotions, ideas and urges within. This gives you the knowledge to make different choices in your relationships. You are adapting beautifully to the present changes in your life.


AFFIRMATION: I am ready for a deeper and more fulfilling love in my life where I accept and am accepted for all that I am.
