Meditation in blue

Some consider the spiral a symbol of the spiritual journey. It is also considered to represent the evolutionary process of learning and growing. It seems that life doesn't proceed in a straight line. The path of life more closely resemble a spiral. We seem to pass the same point over and over again but from a different perspective each time. To walk and then stand in the center of a spiral or labyrinth has been a psycho-spiritual exercise for centering the consciousness.
This mandala I painted for Lolo. One of my favorite symbols in her favorite color blue..
I just hope it will give you a good feeling by looking at it dear ♥


  1. Hi Sweetie,

  3. Oh Marianne, you know she loves it. Perfect for Lolo.

  4. marianne, it's hard to believe this is a painting. the water drops are quite incredible.

    when i first saw this i felt calm. no doubt about it. i love everything you do, and my birth mandala will be a treasure always, but this one: there is something about this one that cuts to the third eye of the soul. to meditate to this, aaaahhh.

    i love you, marianne.

  5. I'm so glad you posted this Marianne because I didn't capture this perfect blue!

    You know I love this painting, and when the light catches it just right it sparkles!

    Oh, it looks like Marja got her beautiful gift!!!!! I knew she'd love it. You are such a thoughtful friend.

    love and hugs!!

  7. Beautiful! Love the gentle simplicity and tone.

  8. Marianne.... this IS perfect for our Lo.... it resonates LO! Another of the many ways the two of you are linked...there is a definite spiritual connection between you. I can visualise the "rain drops" sparkling when the light hits them.... ah, it must bring such peace to gaze at...

    Beautiful - as always! Lo, you are a lucky lady!
