A mandala is a geometric configuration of symbols often used as a spiritual guidance tool, to establish a sacred, peaceful space. It also serves as an aid to meditation and trance induction.
Hi, I am Chriselda; a writer, poet, speaker and an art-lover. I have always loved art…in all of its forms but painting/sketching is the one that resonates with me the most. Through my childhood I remember my mother inscribing me and my sketches for loads of competitions, some of which I won…but it wasn’t the prize that interested me but the joy and calm I got from scribbling my personal art on paper!
And then life happened, where I developed my professional skills and spent nearly all of my time growing and working on my career, where I forgot about this little gem that I had hidden in my subconscious. Luckily enough, somehow I was given the opportunity to rediscover this latent passion of mine and with it its gentle power of peace and serenity.
Studies are now proving that colouring has the ability to relax the fear center of your brain; the amygdala. It induces the same state as meditating by reducing the thoughts of a restless mind. This generates mindfulness and quietness, which allows your mind to get some rest and calm down after a long and stressful day at work.
I have devoted many beautiful, relaxing hours creating this series of colouring books that I am so happy to share with all of you! All of the designs, patterns have been hand drawn, and you will find my unique style running through all of them!
I wish you many enjoyable, engaging hours of colouring my books – Abstracts, Fashion Statements, Sceneries, Christmassy, Mudras, Yoga, Movement, Mandalas and Patterns, Space and Satellites, Geometry, Face Grids, Divinities, Affirmed, Line Art, Halloween, Sigils, Symbols & Alchemy, Asanas and more.
Join me in spreading some positive, happy and peaceful vibes but most importantly ‘Have fun!’
