Mandalas are Spirtual Rituals and the word comes from Sanskrit meaning circle. It is our relationships of Self and the Universe, and the whole circle is the container of the Universe and we are a point within that.
Mandalas, are used for therapuetic work and bringing deeper understandings of the relationship we have with the Elements. The Mandala is the Medicine Wheel, as both serve in the same way.
In my work, I have brought together the integration of the Mandala and Medicine Wheel and use this work with a view of deep healing to occur in a therapuetic way, but also as an awakening to consciousness.
A fusional Therapuetic Fire Ceremony, drawn from my experiences of Fire Ceremonies from around the Globe.
I have found intuitive ways, of working with the element of fire, and connecting ceremony and rituals with offerings based on the nature of the Yajna. People have found these amazingly powerful and have noticed 'shifts' that they have experienced as a result.
Recently, my Pele Yajna, was working with the Goddess using Shamanic Practices in relation to the Fire. All about entering the depths of our psyche, burning away all that was not needed. Done at the Astrological New Moon in Aries, with various planets in retrograde, so a good time of transformation, connecting to the Goddess (feminine) and deep passion and dynamic traits.
This is a huge area when we think about it, so where does one start?
Here I would like to just focus on boundaries of ones ethical status in terms of Awarding Bodies, Training and Insurance. The reason for this blog in the first place is because of a number of observed incidences in operation,
So an Awarding Body is there to:
It is amazing to see that some people will try and escape having insurance, but it is there to protect all sides!
We all hear about the driver's for example who drove a car without insurance and then went and crashed causing injury. The irresponsibility in the first place, of driving without insurance is the negative aspect. In just the same way we have heard cases of therapists not insuring themselves.
Training and Experience
If one make claims of being trained or experienced in anything, they could potentially invalidate their insurance and loose their membership status.
It took me 5 years to train as a psychotherapist, 3 years for hypnotherapy and 2 years as a life coach. On top of that I have trained in the Spiritual arts with Masters from around the World, such as Akashic Records Training, Shamanic Practitioner Training and Aurora Training, amongst various others.
If you have had experiences of anything around these concerns, it is important to notify the relevant bodies eg Awarding Body, Training School etc.
Generally most people will work ethically and safely, however, you will find that we get a bad apple every so often and it can be upsetting and unsettling for the rest of us!
