It's all about our powerful minds today, and I have some lovely lovely treats for you, that I only discovered this week!

I have been having such a wonderful time with Mandala's. The art of working with mandala's has been a spiritual practice used for centuries, and across cultures.

Mandala A mandala is often circular, may contain symbols or representations, and is a colorful, magical meditative process. Buddhist monks make the most amazing sand mandalas as part of their spiritual practice, and I have played around in various ways painting or drawing mandalas in my own life, and with children.

I was meditating the other day, simply looking at a mandala I had painted on my wall, and the thought popped into my head that it was time to play with mandala's again.

Then out of the blue in a technical email, was the link to a most wonderful site about mandala art by Steven Vrancken. AND, he has some free downloadable mandala's available on his site including a package for children!

I just LOVE it when the universe drops something into my lap like that! So, I just have to share it with you! You simply download the Mandala set, get out your colored pencils, put on some meditative music and start coloring. (actually Steven is also a musician, and you can download some music too!)

You can set an intention if you wish to focus on a particular issue that you want to resolve, or you can simply work away and let your mind enter the magic of the color and the symbols.

Color has always been very powerful for me, I sometimes sort beads as a way to unwind and slip into that light trance state, that is such a powerful way of allowing our unconscious mind to surface.

Our conscious mind is such a tiny part and yet it dominates our world. Taking the time to move into higher consciousness, or to open to our divine essence is such an important thing to do.

Many people find it hard to meditate, clearing the mind really is not often possible, you can simply let go the thoughts as they arise and re-focus on your breath, or a chant, or a visual object.

But Mandala coloring is a really easy way to focus and get into that meditative state, and is perfect for children!

Teaching our children to meditate or tune into their higher power is a wonderful thing to do. So instead of coloring cartoon characters, they can color the childrens mandalas!

Check it out, it is so much fun!

Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT or Tapping) is a simple tapping technique anyone can use for ANYTHING! Based on energy meridian points, similar to acupuncture, EFT is very easy to teach to children.

The Program comes with full instructions, a forum for additional support and a range of Tapping Scripts you can use with your kids.

You can even ask me for a free personalized script!
