All Things Beautiful...Through My Kaleidoscope

Welcome to my page of reflections on the mandala art of Henry Reed. Long ago, I envisioned my writing as viewing life through my looking glass…my kaleidoscope. I love the way the picture changes, with each turn of the scope. Yet, it’s always unique and beautiful. After long enjoying Henry’s mandalas in my daily email, I discovered that, beyond looking at the artwork, I was feeling prompted to write words from my heart regarding what was going on in my life. I began my own daily affirmations, or reflections…and posting them here, beginning in August 2009. ~ Nov. 13, 2011, Henry completed his 7th year -- 2,556 mandala paintings -- thus completing a circle. A new one begins. Hope you'll tune in to watch what develops in this blog space of Henry Reed, SusanGail and ATB ~ It's a journey of intuitive heart.


Note to visitors of All Things Beautiful...

Below you will see my reflections on The Daily Mandala from the archives, beginning with Nov. 13, 2004...progressing gradually onward to Nov. 13, 2007, when Henry concluded his seven-year series. To see the newest mandalas, scroll down the where I first began the reflections in 2009. So, I've a long way to go before I sleep, in these mandala woods, so lovely, dark and deep!

The Daily Mandala: August 6, 2005

Fiesta siesta celebrates the magic of our dreams, the power of color to heal, the flowering of creative spirit, the dance down the path of discovery, the circle of life expanding within and without, above and below. ~ ATB

The Daily Mandala: August 5, 2005

 Gossamer weave, tangled web,
 wire-bound wheeling around the square...
I'm floating free within my space,
 held in place delicately grasping,
 connecting, radiating my heart, 
greening the earth, circling the  love.

The Daily Mandala: August 4, 2005

  Peak performance comes to me when I relax and let go and be just me. Powering down powers me up. A contrast -- but all things are go, the grass is green...not only on my side of the fence, but on the field within. ~ ATB

The Daily Mandala: August 3, 2005

The frequency of me is beginning to BE. 
Integrating, connecting, tuning in 
to the sacred circle within. 
The sound is uproarious, the vision is glorious.
I'm loving this station: 
this sound and light chorus that's
joyfully playing waves through my heart.
 Each day is a new one. I'm thankful to be ONE 
with all... and ALL things beautiful 
are one with me. ~ ATB

The Daily Mandala: August 2, 2005

 Fire up your core, encore! And again, and again, and again! Be bold, be savvy, be amazingly, brilliantly true to your center. Circle the wagons; and live from your source. The cross is beautiful. Power up its healing energy for all things possible. Now is the time to be you. ~ ATB

The Daily Mandala: August 1, 2005

eclipses of my mind...seep into my heart.
 Colorfully arrayed around it, 
they drip endlessly...
 teasing me with their meaning. 
The edges blur, the colors fade...
but the essence remains. 
I need but to corral the flow
 of these droplets, 
filling my container with the love,
 the light, the sparkle that they bring.
