Self-Healing Through Coloring!
These mandalas are fun to color and they are sooo much more! Each mandala is infused with an intention to shift something in you. When you use your choice of the hues of the pair of complementary colors indicated they activate this intention. You feel it in your energy field.
Imbalance or stuck places in your energy, caused by your attachment to thoughts, emotions, or personal patterns that get in your way, may be easily shifted through the intention of the art and your attention to self-healing through coloring the design.
This self-healing is all about shifting energy. Stuck energy clogs up your flow. Attachments hold you in old patterns. As your energy reclaims its flow, your body relaxes and the natural state of health may be restored.
What a fun way to apply self-healing and enjoy the process!
Listen to Arlene’s 6 minute interview with Paula Vail about the coloring book.
Here’s what happened to Peggy while coloring the above page from the Mandala Coloring Book.
“Today was a curious day; the fourth day of a New Year. It seems that I was destined to enter this year in a state of confusion about a very important issue that is close to my heart. We have all been there. You know how it is when you face a situation in life that calls for a clear plan of action. But no matter how I have pondered this particular challenge I ended up in a standoff between what I thought was the right thing to do and what my feeling in my gut said I should do. These two aspects of my being were in total opposition about my plan of action. As luck would have it, I recently bought one of Arlene Arnold’s Mandala Coloring books and while I was thumbing through it, I came upon an exercise using the colors, yellow and purple, in a coloring meditation. (p26).
The instructions were simple; just focus on your particular question or situation, relax the mind and color. As soon as I let go of trying to solve the problem and stayed in a playful dance with the colors and shapes, a peace of mind came over me. When I was done I realized that I could find a balance between my intellect and my instincts if I bridged both ideals from a heartfelt sense of harmony. I began to trust that the right action would come by honoring the importance of what I know to be true while equally acknowledging how I felt about my choices. ”
