This post is part sharing with you what I learned and part reference in case I forget how to make one.
Step 1 square off your paper. In this case it was 9 inches, draw your line. Do not make any other pencil markings at this point. If you draw your lines and circles now you won’t be able to erase them later.
Step 3. Let dry completely
You make your designs in pencil and then go back over them with a black permanent marker. If there are any pencil lines that you no longer need you can erase them. You can save the ends and make bookmarks if you are feeling overly ambitious.
I did not complete one today and that’s okay. My goal was to use up the whole notebook, which I did and now I have twelve mandalas ready to go. For me, everything I did today was just the technical part. The meditation comes in the last step of filling in. Now when the mood strikes me, I can pick a page and start my moving meditation. It’s pretty easy peasy once you break down the steps.
This was my treat to myself for working so hard yesterday. It was nice to have a space where I could lay everything out, make a mess, and let it dry. Some days you have to do something for just you….Zia
