Mandala Interpretation # 2
Number 2 - Oldest Son
It is said that the Universal Energy streaming into certain areas of the country needs transporters to be a carrier of this energy. This concept is a lot like the Hundredth Monkey Syndrome of a small group who change behavior through their own consciousness changing. This is the second mandala from a person living in a part of the country where the Universal Divine Energy is streaming into the area.
Those of you who have been hurt within a family system and are currently wanting to heal deep grief need to print out this mandala and look at it. The design of the mandala will assist with the healing of this pattern of hurt and grief. Luckily, this person’s effort in taking the time to draw will follow the pattern of all of Carl Jung’s patients and start a powerful healing.
What the mandala archtype embodies:
Target energy with compartmentalization of feelings. Target is the archetype of feeling like a treadmill is the constant companion in the artists’ life. The artist is on that treadmill trying with desperation to put his life back together. His Higher Self is giving him a hint: “As above so Below” is the energy of his center.
What we think, we create in our world. The path out of this trap is to allow the grief and begin to acknowledge and own feelings with a method of releasing them. During the holidays: Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years…it is going to be important to be very good to self and put almost no demands upon self. It will be a time to practice saying no to things that are not wanted in terms of assignments, obligations that can wait, and to only allow supportive people into the artist’s world during this time. In other words, no self-sacrifice during this time.
The other theme is Dragon Fight or the struggle over parental issues. This can manifest as actual Earthly parents, superiors at work, institutions, and anything to which the artist can rebel. The good news is: the blue and green are already in place to provide a grid for healing.
Right at this time there is spiritual energy bringing in healing blue energy of healing. During the holidays more infusions of this peaceful blue will be felt. After the holidays, there will be a pattern of spiritual energy supporting and assisting with softening the blades of anger and grief.
One attribute this artist has which will take him forward is lots of courage. Even though he is in rebellion mode and raging, at least inside, about his parental players in his life, he is a rule follower. He literally boxes himself in a framework of rules and it could be that his creative side will literally cut through some of this grid of rules.
reason I feel this: some of his color combinations in all four aspects of his next year have the springing forth of “coming out of the box”.
He also has the advantage of being the first born child in his family of origin, and being the first boy. The springing forth of creative energy will come from the part of his dragon fight related to his female anima (his Mother). The extra writing sent to clarify his signature shows disconnection from both parents. However, both his parents managed to get lots of information into his subconscious even though, at this point in his life, he would deny that he is like either of his parents because of his grief and anger.
His first name shows the grief by his going below the baseline and his anger by sharply cutting high and slashing the last letter of his first name. At some point in his life, he will add the last part of his first name which is “ well” ,and adding this part, will assist with communication and grounding. It is important that he not add this part to his name now, however. “Well” ends in double Taurus energy and stubbornness would currently override the grounding component of Taurus , currently. Later on, it “well” will assist with manifesting money.
He prints and writes within his signature showing that over time he will need to get a grip on reacting with anger to situations where listening and non-reaction might be better for him in the long run. Drawing the mandala he drew will assist with that impulsive, knee-jerk reaction.
The process which looks similar to a computer mouse, brazil nut, pac-man or space ship at the end of his signature is part of his creativity of expression coming forth. It is that part of a first born which knows that recognition is important, but, currently, he feels negative strokes will suffice . After the holidays, he will begin to be even more calm, more seeking of positive recognition, and possibly more resolved over the parents in his world.
It would certainly behoove him to heal the anima because that is his ability to nurture self and allow creativity to come forth. He does this by acknowledge the good parts of his Mother. It would be very beneficial to also heal the animus (Father energy) because that is the part which allows one to bring positive recognition into their world and be grounded. Being out of balance with either has serious consequences which can manifest in the person’s life as negativity.
Part of this artist’s learning in life will be around manifesting money. His archetype is Strength. Strength shows a woman dressed all in white (honesty) stroking the head of lion (male energy). The balancing of the artist’s anima and animus are directly related to his being able to manifest abundance into his world and not have the pac-man figure at the end of his signature which could be the negative financial box or snare of imbalance. In other words, without the male/female energy of parents in balance, he may find himself financially dependent on one or the other of his parents while resenting having to allow their financial assistance.
Healing and balancing will require forgiveness and seeing them through the human factor with all their flaws in place but not a self-fulfilling prophecy of seeing his future through them. It would be beneficial for this artist to read the blog of July 09 on www.pathfoundation.com clicking on blog and July.
Scan down to the red words BECAUSE OF YOU…AND LISTEN TO THE ENERGY AND WORDS OF THAT SONG. Notice also the symbolism around Kelly Clarkson as she sings. The artist will see the same sharp blades coming at her face which are in his mandala. Sharp, cutting blades of pain, distrust, and hurt. During the holidays, allow the anger and the feelings of lack of trust along with the grief.
Only do good things for self and set boundaries to not go or do things with those who bring more pain and hurt. However, after the holidays start a program of exercise through walking in nature allowing Mother Earth to help sustain and ground you. Do some subconscious releasing (we have an excellent grief CD) and General Cellular Releasing CD and there are two great hypnotherapists in your state…one in the mountains on a retreat by water and the other in a larger city.
Both are excellent. There are many healing modalities which assist in releasing anger and grief. I found it interesting in the Birmingham News recently a therapist recommended soup and ice cream for those visiting people in grief. Reason: the swallowing mechanism gets hindered during grief and both soup and ice cream comfort the palate and the swallowing mechanism. From that you can see that grief is not just emotional but it is also very physical.
The construction of the mandala itself has a grid of healing to it and the spiritual colors with creativity springing forth is going to assist your world with powerful energy.
Allow the healing.
