THERAPEUTIC FUNCTION OF THE MANDALA
By Surya Mandalas [edited by 7M]
The Mandala balance the chakras by means of colours and meditating to connect to the logical side of our brain through sacred geometric forms. The Mandala will send impulses through the mind to the receivers of the brain where the signals will be processed and a reaction will be obtained.
Meditating with Mandalas heals as much on the physical level as the psychic and spiritual level. As you meditate, it is very probable that you experience alterations in consciousness, like the sensation of expansion. Also it usually brings “memories” to the conscious mind that we had forgotten, but remained stored in the subconscious mind, such as traumas of the childhood. In meditation, we can face up to such facts and thus remove the obstacles from our mind and be able to surpass all the related limitations at psychological-spiritual level and diseases at physical level.
A Mandala is always going to be positive whatever its colour, but it is doubly useful, when we have already located a problem, and are ready to solve it. We could help ourselves choosing some particular colour, which would act directly on the mind, accelerating the treatment process.
