pp.36-37. "Iona's Mandalas"
Text reads: Eight years ago, seeking beyond the worldly life, Iona asked to be shown her True Life's Mission. Since then, among other great life changes, she was guided to co create divine art. Iona believes this is why mandalas recently began appearing in her visions during meditation. When they began to present themselves clearly during regular daily activities, even interrupting conversations, she realized they needed to be drawn. As clearly as the mandalas appeared, she felt the inspiration to paint with teas and fruit. This seemed to naturally stem from Iona's interest in natural foods and healing alternatives. "We know blueberries and organic green tea have health benefits, but to see their vibration and to have the same pure, live energy that we know is best for our bodies be taken in by our spiritual third eye - through the design of the mandala - is an experience for the higher consciousness."
