POPPY MANDALA

Sometimes things aren't clear right away. That's where you need to be patient and persevere and see where things lead.                                     Mary Pierce

PATIENCE

Poppy seeds can lie dormant for many years until the ground is disturbed or ‘churned up’. Sometimes emotional upheaval and the challenges of life unexpectedly bring out the best in us. Your instinctual responses for survival gave you the ability to lay down the seeds of your future, and wait for the right time to truly bloom.

The poppy is also the symbol of Morpheus, the Greek god of dreams who was the son of Hypnos. To ‘morph’ is to emerge in a changed state and the poppy symbolizes the ability to emerge when the time is right, transformed through adversity, into something magnificent.

What appeared to be a negative situation will have positive results. You have endured some very challenging times and fought hard to hold onto your dreams. It is time to breathe, relax and enjoy the outcome of your hard work. Your patience is rewarded. Finally the wait is over and you are open to accept your success.

AFFIRMATION: The past is a blessing because it has shaped me. The future is a blessing because I am shaping it. I embrace my well-earned success.

“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.”
