Transforming in the Temenos of Mother Mary
The word mandala in Sanskrit, translates as circle.
A circle is a powerful symbol. It can represent wholeness and healing, and completion. The magic circle demarcates sacred space in ritual. The medicine circle is a spiritual map for healing and protection.
The mandala is an actual depiction and also a psychic reality. It expresses an energy of activation, a function of restoration, and a purpose of completion.
In numerous spiritual traditions from the East including Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism and ancient Japanese Shinto, mandalas are specific images of the Universe – or even various deities with their retinues. The mandala has also found its way into Western psychological thought through the pioneering psychological work of CG Jung, who recognised the mandala as a representation of the psyche’s quest for healing, unification and wholeness.
“In our Mandala of the Madonna, we integrate Eastern spirituality with Western psychology to generate a portal of presence for Mother Mary to manifest her divine love and miraculous protection in our lives, and our world, more fully.”
Why would we need this? Often we feel a connection to a particular form of enlightened wisdom and divine love, but are not sure how to foster that connection and strengthen the relationship to experience positive effects in our lives.
The Mandala of the Madonna is an offering from my heart to yours to help you deepen your experience of Our Lady and understand her as a living inner reality. As that understanding evolves into experience, the inner reality of your relationship with her blooms, and the positive effects will flow more readily into your outer life, helping to protect and direct your life path.
How can you access the Mandala of the Madonna? I have created an introductory video and a short introductory practice for you available as a gift here.
For those that want to develop a deeper experience and stabilisation of the Mandala of the Madonna, I have channelled a more intricate practice which works with spiritual gates and eight pointed sacred geometry with multiple forms of Mother Mary including the Blue Virgin of the Beautiful Window, Black Madonna of the Pillar, Our Lady of Guadalupe, and Our Lady who Dwells Beneath the Earth, amongst others. For information on that deeper practice, sign up here.
“As we connect with the Mandala we are orienting ourselves into her reality, and allowing that to inform our reality. This is profoundly transformational.”
So often we are stuck in the way we see things, and when we are stuck, there is typically a problem that we cannot work through or an issue that just won’t seem to budge, no matter how many ways we try to tackle it. This is a normal part of human experience and when we enter such phases in our lives, we need a completely different energy to uproot the fixity and get things moving in a better way.
We can imagine it like this. We have a problem that is like a huge rock. In our puddle of perspective, that rock is a big issue. Yet in the oceanic awareness of Our Lady, that rock becomes comparatively easier to deal with. It may dissolve into insignificance entirely or at least cease to be such an obstacle.
To access such spiritual suppose, we have to be willing to suspend ‘regular functioning’ (of mind, worries, viewpoints) and enter the Mandala where completely different views and responses can arise. We use our power, intention and spiritual strength to get ourselves to that place, and we allow her love and skilfulness to flow through us with best solution in response. Her love enters the world in this way too and so all beings benefit from that.
The Mandala of the Madonna guides you into the temenos of Our Lady. Temenos is a Greek word with broad meaning including a sacred container or sanctified land, an enclosed temple. It is the sacred holding circle within which the healing happens. The temenos of Mother Mary emanates through the Mandala of the Madonna. This is a living spiritual place of connection and blessing. In that space you can familiarise yourself with her way, wisdom and kindness, and transform your life in the process.
May the love and miraculous protection of Our Lady manifest in abundant blessings for you, and for all beings.
