Christmas and then New Year are busy times for most. Lots of catching up with friends and celebrations. Here is the next mandala. Happy New Year!
POSSUM MAGIC MANDALA
Possum Magic Mandala depicts possums, the moon and bats - all powerful symbols of our internal shadowy worlds.
Considered a luminary the moon relies on the sun to reflect her light into the night. Symbolically the moon is our feminine nature that speaks to us at night through our dreams as we reflect and process powerful emotions and deep feelings encountered during the day.
The Possums and Moon Mandala, is about reflecting on a situation through passive and indirect deduction. Make the time to find the stillness, quiet, and solitude you need to hear your inner voice. The vast and deep darkness of the night represents your unconscious. It is full of activity and information that is unseen and beyond your ‘everyday awareness’. You are being guided by your inner knowledge. Pay attention to your dreams.
Trust your inner guide to get you through the dark times. Rest. Sleep. Like the possum hanging upside down you may only need to ‘hang in there’ and wait until dawn comes shedding a different light on the situation.
AFFIRMATION: My life is falling into place and all the love and healing that I have wished for is coming to me. Every breath I take heals and revitalizes me.
According to Shamanic beliefs the bat represents a rebirth and a chance to leave behind the ‘old life’ and begin anew. Initiates undergo a ritual death in which they face their fears, put to rest past grievances and regrets and are metaphorically reborn without their old identities. Embrace the dawn feeling free from the weight of the past to walk into a new day. Enjoy.
AFFIRMATIONToday I am liberating myself from the shadows of my past. A bright new day dawns for me to begin anew.
