I have been “creatively working” with the heaven and earth star for a long time now and it was a deep treat for me to see the process of one of Ana’s creation that the pictures in the post illustrate. Seeing the steps it takes to create a beautiful masterpiece such as this, I am reminded that we are all in the process of development that is perfect for each of our unique paths. And, I was also prompted to reflect on my own process around allowing my own creativity to be honored. This reflection is what prompted me to create a post to share with you all. It has been a long walk, over many hills, through a few streams and at one point I think I almost drowned in the sea of my comparative mind. Praise BE that I am healing my relationship to my own creativity, my mind, my emotions, my body, and spirit. I hope to soon allow myself to clearly open my path to sharing more of ME with us ALL.
The true freedom which we can all access within our hearts is so precious and patient.
May we All find the keys to liberation and use them.
In the past when I have seen other people do things similar to what I am “working” on, I would sometimes give up on my creations. My comparative mind would decide to stop me by creating (with my permission of course) the belief that someone else is already doing it better than what I can do. WELL, I am once again learning the lesson that I am free to be ME and that means loving and accepting where I AM at. I respect the gifts that comparing can give, while at the same time, I will no longer give my power over to my comparative mind and the painful isolation it once created with me.
The path to liberation continues with every choice I make to Love and Accept myself.
Every breathe we take can support us, if we let it inspire us.
I choose to be INSPIRED and supported by other peoples INSPIRATIONAL BEAUTY.
I AM learning how to honor THE BEAUTY which I am drawn to work with and BE.
I feel that I am embodying LOVE creatively.
This is a continual process that I will Love and Accept myself through, every step of the way.
Every aspect of the process is Blessed by my intention to allow Love to guide me to Love. May my journey be of Benefit to You and of Benefit to All.
Thank you to ALL of you who have walked the path before me and found your core BEAUTY and are LIVING it. I believe that by doing so, you make my path more open to success and for that I am lovingly grateful.

I sincerely appreciate the beauty of the mandala art I have shared within this post, so much so that I reached out to Ana of Mandal’ana’s recently to let her know how she has touched my life and to get her permission to use her art in my sharing posts with you. When I explore Ana’s art, I am viscerally moved by the depth of her connection with the natural world. The beauty she creates can only, in my opinion, come from a loving communion with not only nature but with the place that LOVE lives. Thank you, Ana, for sharing your love with us all. You can find Ana’s beautiful work on FaceBook at “Mandl’ana’s” and she creates pendants to sell privately and in her shop on Etsy.
May the blessings of the springtime renewal be with us All.
May you be enlivened to find and Be the beauty which you LOVE
