To me, Easter is a most sacred time of year. The feast of the Christian ceremony, symbolically, of death and rebirth, is incredibly powerful, in the energy of the holy days it encapsulates. Even nature seems to slow to a stillness, and a reverence of harmony, that is almost audible…at least that’s what it feels like to me. It is a time when I get to indulge in mandala art, as sketches in Autumn light, during the days of stillness and light, in the southern hemisphere.
The following mandala was drawn one Easter weekend. It reminds me of the sacred heart, and it’s inter-connectivity with the harmony of nature. It has two names: Nature’s Harmony which is how I felt it, and Gaia’s Harmonic Christ Grid which is what it evoked as a personal meaning.
The blossoming of the message of the sacred heart, and the cross as the fulcrum point of the mandala, resting, wholly holy, at the centre, is illuminated by the risen sun, prominent as the background. It also forms a template of the holy grail as epitomised by the blooming flower cup at the solar, higher mind, apex.
As a symbolic reflection it offers a view of the ascendant and transcendent rebirth of consciousness of the heart path. With love as the central connection, between earth and heaven, through the diamond centre window. Diamonds, traditionally, are associated with strength, love, health and invincibility, and were worn by leaders throughout history.
The mandala came punctuated by supporting words, in the motivational verse that accompanies it, as a suggestion for Easter reflection…
Nurture Your Heart Nature, At the Diamond Centre
The Window of Grace, For the Human Race
May the blessings of the Easter message that emerged in this mandala and verse bring you harmony, with a rebirth of beauty and balance, in your dealings. As well as a chance to reflect, connect, introspect, and celebrate the mysteries of holy joy, rapture, and being, for the next directions you are planning and contemplating.
And have a Happy Easter, resurrecting and nurturing the love field of heartfelt ceremony, in whatever form that your heart is expanding, relevant to you, your family, workplace, and surroundings, in your world of fulfilment and diversity. And may it illuminate grace for a harmonious human race.
