For a limited time, we are offering a free workshop on "How to deal with stress, anxiety, depression, etc." All you have to do is register. See you there!

Having experienced many challenges in my life over the years, I have been on a journey of growth, spirituality, self-care, forgiveness, and personal development. Many of the topics in the Mandala Journal are techniques I have used to help me through some of my darkest days and to invite more joy and gratitude into my life. Now I want to share them with you!

Mindfulness and meditation are incredibly powerful tools for taking control of our emotions, managing stress and allowing ourselves time to unplug, breathe, and focus on what is most important to us. These practices can also help our minds relax and work through the challenges we just can’t seem to find the answers to on our own. I hope these posts will help you in your personal journey as much as they have helped me in mine.

If there is a topic you would like me to cover, a technique you can share with others, or a story you want to tell, please reach out to me! If your idea or story gets published, you will receive exclusive hand-drawn mandalas just for you.

Happy reading!

For several years now the self-care Must-Do’s seem to focus on 2 actions: mindfulness, and writing things down. Mindfulness is a no-brainer by now, right?

It’s hard enough to carve out some me-time during the day to sit still and let your mind focus, and rewiring our brains to think positively is instantly rewarding, but do you have to pick up a pen and scroll something down in an honest-to-goodness journal or sticky note to truly succeed?

A mantra is a creed, a sentiment, or a principle that is repeated, often during meditation, as a point of mindful focus. Mantras can be said aloud or within the mind, and you can use them anywhere at any time. They are a ready-made tool that you can use immediately when anxiety, stress, sadness, fear, or anger take over your thoughts as you find your way back to rationality and peace.

Typically mantras are quite short and if you do a quick search online you’ll find tonnes of common unattributed examples like:

How often does the thought, I just need a moment to think cross your mind? We’re taught as children to stop and think. We spent so much of our youth being trained to stop and think, why can’t we do so as adults? Life experience isn’t the same as muscle memory, sometimes it pays to just stop and compare prices in the grocery store!

Everyone has this thing about cleaning the house before the guests arrive – after breaking an ankle, I couldn't care less. If people are judgemental, they don't belong in my home.

Have you ever had a turmeric latte? That’s the western world word for it, it’s more commonly known in the east as golden milk or turmeric milk. Essentially, it’s hot milk with a teaspoon, or more, of ground turmeric stirred in thoroughly.

With all of Ontario being in lockdown and no end to the global COVID-19 pandemic insight, it can be challenging to stay positive.

While some very organized people start planning for the holidays in June or July, most of us are not thinking about it until we see every commercial and window sign reminding us that it’s time to start spending. 

I wanted to do make the living room my own, so I drew a henna-style feather mandala while doing all of my favourite things;

When the pandemic first began, working from home felt like a luxury we had been dreaming of for a long time. We didn’t have to put ourselves together, wear pants, or sit in traffic only to get home and start our “second shift”. For awhile there, it felt like we had more time than ever before. We could finally catch our breath, slow down, and pursue passions that had taken a backseat to the demands of life. It was exactly what we needed.

Life has been weird with this pandemic and, while we are not out of the woods yet, I am happy we have all been able to level out from the chaos and regain control. We are settling into our new normal, getting more comfortable with uncertainty, and starting to make more time to reconnect with the things that feed our souls. Many of us have discovered new or long-abandoned hobbies or taken the time to learn a new skill entirely.
