I created this mandala from an original photo I took of an Echinacea Flower (see below).

The predominant color in this one is purple.  I decided to look up the healing properties of “violet and purple” and here is what I found…

Purple is associated with the “crown chakra” – oneness with the infinite, peace and wisdom.

“Healing properties: These are colors of transformation.They heal melancholy, hysteria, delusions and alcohol addiction and bring spiritual insights and renewal. These colors slow down an over-active heart; stimulate the spleen and the white blood cells (immunity). Bring sleep. Soothe mental and emotional stress. Decrease sexual activity. Decrease sensitivity to pain. They help in detoxification.”

Here is the original image I started with – no tweaks besides cropping.

I took this photo in October at a public garden that I had just discovered in Hamilton Township, NJ.  It was a warm, sunny day with beautiful puffy clouds in the sky.  It being October, mid-week and mid-day – there were barely any other people there – always a plus for me.
