This is the feeling evoked by the archetypal stage of “Crystallization”, the inspiration for the 72 mandalas in this book. Crystallization is a time when we are reaping rewards and benefits from completing a cycle of personal growth;or realizing and appreciating our achievements; or resting in the pleasure of having fulfilled a personal creative inspiration. Crystallization is also a time of significant spiritual understanding, when our spiritual nature comes together in harmony with our physical nature. Enjoy these sacred circle designs created for balance, harmony, and spiritual well-being.
