About Mandala medicine & Intuitive art
Mandala Medicine means entering into the vast teaching of the circle, of the universal symbol of connectedness and unity. The medicine of Mandala offers reflection of our inner self and our outer world, the mirror, the pure reflection of inner reality.
By practicing in this “safe space” of the circle We can find ease, direction and the concentration of the mind. There is no distraction to be offered, only the symbol by symbol, layer by layer and the quality lies in the moment, not in the quantity of liner or movements. With Mandalas We can co-create the possibility of being in the middle - in the centre of the universe, and as well We offer the possibility to be one Of Many..to be within the circle, like dot next dot, symbol next to symbol. We appear to be equal to many.
Intuitive Art is without restriction. Intuitive Art find its rules in No rules. The power of Intuition is without logical understanding, The lesson lies in Trusting the process. Whatever form and shape the process takes, only the trust allow the creation to happen. There is no direction, no rules, no circles, only power of your intuitive self to be co creating in the Moment. Observing your thoughts and narratives, intuitive process can offer so many opportunities to understand yourself better. How do I talk to myself during the creation? Is it negative or positive self-talk ? How much do I trust myself during the creation? Who is leading me- my logical or intuitive part…
Keep discovering endless possibilities of Intuitive Art is so much fun, as well so much scarcity to “do It right
Originally from Czech republic, I have been always driven to any creative modalities since childhood. Even when I knew how much I love to create things through my hands (drawings, ceramics, sawing), I had a long break from any creativity. I put myself into the belief that “I am not creative, I can not draw, I am not talented..” and probably like most of us, lived this lie until some time.
The major breakthrough came in difficult times and during my 5 years of traveling around the world, when I “had to '' find something to calm my mind, get centred and find stillness by “creating something”.
The journey with mandalas started around the year 2017, when I experienced great calming effects, inner stillness and mind clarity by drawing repetitive symbols. Mandala medicine art has evolved from playing with a simple, meditative style of zentangle art (by drawing simple structure patterns like lines, dots, etc) into mandala art which I have been practicing until now.
Nowadays, the inspiration of most of my artwork has been dedicated to the journey with mandala. This sacred meditative circle keeps coming back to my mind, to my thoughts or ideas, to be then expressed on the paper, canvas or wooden panel. For my work I intuitively choose colors and materials and you can see my main influence from fractals of nature - flowers and leaves especially.
Lately I have been more and more interested in studying sacred symbols of any kind. As well as my life-long dedication to study and to be able capture nature’s endless expression of beauty (trees especially).
Drawing mandalas is a unique way to express what it means DOing ART, to mainly find BEingness within. Mandala is a great teacher when starting or coming back to creativity. You will learn the ultimate truth that everyone is able to be creative and be uniquely expressive.
Sometimes It’s not very important the meaning behind the art, but a simple yet powerful act of Doing it, which can be more profound than keep all thoughts asking: Am I creative?
Yes, you are.
