Helende Mandala's van Henny Aleida Hendriks

There is a Chinese wisdom that says, when you want to see the world, you have to go and stand on top of a mountain.
And what do you see standing there? The world as a circle.

The circle is the essence of the mandala. In many cultures you find the round shape. Sometimes the image of a crop circle inspires. Among others are the rosette windows in old European cathedrals. Buddhists use the magic circle as a way to meditate.

Carl Gustav Jung saw drawing mandalas as a process, a road to your inner essence, your own source.

Many people experience Henny's mandalas as healing. It is good for diseased people, and especially ill children, to have these mandalas in their neighbourhood. The mandalas bring harmony in spaces with unrest and struggle.

Mandalas can be made with chakras as starting points. Chakras are energy points in the body. They absorb energy from the earth, cosmos, our food and the air ,and send it to our organs.

There are 7 main chakras and many more less important ones. In drawing mandalas we only use the main chakras.

All chakras are connected through energy lines.

By drawing and looking at chakra mandalas, you can improve the working of the chakras .
Most of Henny's chakras are made intuitively.
