WHITE CRANES MANDALA
“The greater the contrast the greater the potential. Great energy only comes from a corresponding great tension between opposites.”
Carl Jung, Swiss psychiatrist.
White Cranes Mandala. In China the upward flying crane symbolized aspiration. The white body of the crane represented purity and its’ red head was the fire of life. This ancient symbol has long been associated with birth, regeneration and resurrection. It is the symbol of life itself.
The swirling central cranes bring our focus to the heart of the mandala, that magical place where new life begins. Depicted as a Yin Yang symbol it represents the primal opposing but complementary forces found in all things in the universe and the necessity of balance. It is a place of two opposites uniting and yet remaining separate.
It is here that the masculine (white) and feminine (red) energies come together in a perfectly balanced state.
This mandala reminds you of the universal principle of ‘opposites’. Joy and sorrow, masculine and feminine, light and dark, fearless and afraid, and all the other differing aspects of yourself that connect you to the power of creativity; they inspire you to question, to explore, to reason, to make and create. You are aware of the differences and contrasts between you and your loved one – there is opposition. This brings balance and power to your relationship. This mandala also brings news of renewed life or the birth of a special child.
AFFIRMATION: My consciousness expands to embrace a deeper understanding and acceptance of those that I love. My relationships are harmonious.
