Meditative Monday

Reminiscing Of A Timeless Love – I thought that merging the monarch butterfly and the pansy in a mandala was the perfect symphony of symbolisms.

The ancient Aztecs believe that the dearly departed souls return as hummingbirds and butterflies. In the Japanese culture butterflies are thought to be representative of young maidens and marital bliss. Butterflies also symbolize: resurrection, transition, celebration, lightness, time and soul.

The flower symbolism associated with the pansy is merriment and you occupy my thoughts. The pansy is also considered a flower of remembrance, togetherness and union. Pansies help evoke fond memories of our loved ones. It is believed if a pansy is placed over someone’s eyes while sleeping, upon waking that person will fall in love with the first person to appear.

I call this piece Pieces Of My Heart - The rainbow rose symbolizes happiness and joy. The rainbow is a symbol of mystical beauty, promise, and illumination. The rose is a flower essence of the root chakra. In many cultures the rainbow symbolizes the bridge between heaven and earth. The rainbow also symbolizes: hope, divinity, transformation and harmony. The delphinium represents an open heart, a passionate attraction and cheerfulness. Symmetry is another expression of the balance of Yin and Yang, of the unrestrained flow of ch'i

Masquerade - The Day of the Dead a.k.a. El Dia de los Muertos is celebrated on November 1st and 2nd. During this time the sky over the Mexican mountain village of Anguangeo is strewn with flickers of fiery orange and browns. They are not from the colors of autumn leaves but from countless monarch butterflies concluding their journey to the hills covered in firs.

The locals believe the monarchs are the returning spirits of their deceased relatives, inexplicably returning the same time every year. The ancient Aztecs believe that the dearly departed souls return as hummingbirds and butterflies.
The Mandarin Chinese word for butterfly is "hu-tieh". "Tieh" means "70 years", therefore butterflies have become a symbol for a long life. If a butterfly crosses your path, it means good luck. In the Japanese culture butterflies are thought to be representative of young maidens and marital bliss. In ancient Greek the word for butterfly is "Psyche", which translated means "soul". Butterflies also symbolize: Resurrection, Transition, Celebration, Lightness, Time and Soul. Symmetry is another manifestation of the balance of Yin and Yang, of the unimpeded flow of ch'i.

I call this “Angels Among Us” Can anyone know why?

The daffodil symbolizes rebirth and new beginnings and has become synonymous with spring. The daffodil is also a sign of winter’s end. The Hyacinth symbolizes playful joy. The flower symbolism associated with the pansy is merriment and you occupy my thoughts. The pansy is also considered a flower of remembrance, togetherness and union. Pansies help evoke fond memories of our loved ones. It is believed if a pansy is placed over someone’s eyes while sleeping, upon waking that person will fall in love with the first person to appear.
