“Friend” encourages us to be our own best friend to ourselves. When in doubt as to how to do that, just observe how we treat others. With our friends we usually are kind, supportive, encouraging, caring, and helpful.
Do we treat ourselves the same way? It might be an interesting exercise to observe how we DO treat ourselves. Often times we are harsh, critical, abasing, and hurtful. Holding the “Friend” meditation stone can remind us to be kind and gentle with ourselves.
YourDictionary.com defines friend as “someone who is on your side.” It begs the question: with how we treat ourselves, whose side are we on?
I used acrylic art, with gel pen details, to hand paint this stone.

My Mission: connecting with our Inner Light in delightful, inspiring ways
For me, creating mandalas is more than just coloring pretty patterns in a circle. I do it because my spiritual evolution and creativity require it of me. My mandala designs come about within an active meditative state, connected with my higher self, my spiritual guides and nature spirits.
Together, we bring into form, mandala art the allows me to re-connect with my own inner peace and joy, letting me explore and expand my own creative spirit to however far and in whatever direction I want to take it.
As part of my own spiritual journey, I encourage, and hopefully inspire, others to explore their own creativity, to help them re-connect with their own inner peace and joy. As a means to that end, I make all of my mandalas available for people to color. Why should I have all the fun?
