Mandala Chakra is a guided journey of self-discovery anchored in the seven chakras of our energetic and physical body through the lens of seven unique perceptual states. Laural has literally visualized a way to connect the dots by creating a map for awakening one’s personal consciousness as well as the collective soul. Written words and 49 hand-drawn mandalas guide you on an epic adventure of reconnection and inner awakening. Concepts such as nature’s archetypes, sacred geometry, platonic solids, world belief, consciousness and infinite oneness come to life as you see how they are held within.

The words “mandala” and “chakra” are Sanskrit (ancient language of India) meaning circle or wheel. Circles represent both the infinite world they contain and the beginning point of creation. The circular orbits of stars inspired the creation of astronomy, geometry, science, calendars and time itself throughout the world, in every culture.

The concept of a chakra or “cakra” originated when Hindu yogis sensed invisible wheels of energy within their energy/subtle body during deep meditation.  The word yoga means, “to yoke with spirit.”  Yogis toned vocal sounds “mantras” to improve their flow of life force energy “prana” through channels “nadis” within their subtle body.  As they chanted they sensed how different mantras helped them reach various levels of consciousness. These mantras evolved into visual yantras or circular geometric drawings used for meditation. This practice gave way to the creation of personal mandalas as a tool for daily meditative practice.  As the popularity of yoga grew, unique mantras, yantras and mandalas were created for each chakra.  They provided a visual way for people to connect their emotional/energy body with their physical body.  As one practices this process you can see how emotions are held within the body.

Sensing that everything was interconnected, Laural drew seven series of seven mandalas that captured the archetypal wisdom held within the subconscious self.  Laural has literally visualized a way to connect the dots by creating a map for awakening one’s personal consciousness as well as the collective soul.
