Each and every time that I sit down to do one of these posts, something really special happens. I really take time to sit quietly with each mandala, photograph its details with great attention, and read through the included messages with care and love. I believe that the attention and intention that I put into each mandala holds value and sets the intention for what they can continue to do in the world, as I share them here. I never fail to be deeply touched by each contribution as I work with it.
