A friend has just posted this beautiful Mandala on her page. And look at what it led to… and amazing revelation about a Mandala I created 2009, about its spiritual meaning and relationship to the sacred place at the Rainbow Shower, Maui – the Anahata-Huaca-Ahu (AHA).
Seven prongs. It reminded me of a Mandala I created over 6 years ago. And here it is, still gracing a wall in our Rainbow Shower, Maui home. Except I didn’t realize at the time that I was making a Mandala. 🙂
Anybody care to guess what the materials are out of which my Mandala was created?
And now, thank’s to you, my dear friend Ka’Haiya Sophia and her post, I understood for the first time the meaning of this Mandala: Seven rays, seven chakras, seven days of the week, seven…

And now, here’s another example of converting the Rainbow Shower plants into art. This is a design I also created in 2009 using the bamboos from our property.
