DAMM – Draw a Meditation Mandala ;)

It’s DAMM time!

*yup, I still giggle every time I say “It’s DAMM time!” 😉

Hello beautiful friends! Come join me for a few minutes of distraction and relaxation. We all need a little of that right now, don’t we! 🙂

I’m going live every morning on my main Facebook profile feed: Deb Soromenho to share a little peace of mind in the form of freeform mandalas and stories.

This is not a traditional meditation exercise. It’s a meditation mandala. You can follow along with me and draw your very own mandala or you can just watch me draw one and listen to my daily stories.

Drawing mandalas forces you to focus solely on the lines and shapes you’re making on the paper. Its repetitive nature allows you to draw w/o worrying about placement or design too much. No artistic abilities are needed. 🙂

Watching an art video is very calming in itself, so if you’re not up to drawing your own mandala, just watching me methodically form the lines and shapes of the mandala is super relaxing. Listening to my stories gives your brain a nice break from the chaos of the day.

I first started drawing mandalas because I could not meditate in the traditional way. Mandalas allowed me to clear my head and do at least a form of meditation. They can do the same for you!

10:30am cst

I try to make it at 10:30am, sometimes it’ll vary though. I always post an announcement of the actual time about 15 minutes prior.

Below I’ve made a simple circle template for you to use, just print it and place it underneath the paper you’re drawing on. You’ll be able to see the lines faintly through the paper, but enough to act as a guide. We’re not looking for perfection here, just relaxation.

Super Exciting News

I’m creating an oracle deck! 🔮 But not just any old oracle deck, a Mermaid Oracle deck!! 🧜🏼‍♀️

My vision for the deck is to help us accept and embrace all aspects of our selves; the good, the bad, and everything in between!!

In celebration of this journey of creation and discovery, I’ve created a special Facebook group to talk all things oracle, mermaid, and empowerment.

And you are officially invited to join! I can’t wait to see you there! All Our Mermaid Selves

Below is a little bit about my inspiration, but watch the video for a full explanation!

My vision for the Mermaid Oracle deck is to be able to use it to celebrate and help guide us through navigating all the different aspects of our personality. All our quirks, all our moods, all parts of our selves. All Our Mermaid Selves! 😀

To learn to look inward and know why we have certain traits. To help focus on how to make the best of who we are, in all of our glorious personalities!

Mermaids, to me, are the perfect way to represent this concept. They are a perfect mix of fantasy and real. They are fantastical creatures, but they are half human and so seem more real and grounded than other fantasy creatures.

We feel a connection with them and can identify with them. There are so many different types of mermaids, the almost every culture in the world has their versions in lore and history, and that made them a perfect choice to depict all the different personalities within us.

Also, they are just awesome, lol, who doesn’t love mermaids?! (ok, maybe someone out there doesn’t, but they probably hate on everything, haha)

Please join me on this journey of creating this deck. I’ll be sharing all things mermaid, mystical, empowering and so much more! Facebook • Instagram • Newsletter

Don’t forget to join the All Our Mermaid Selves Facebook group! This is the link to join! www.facebook.com/groups/OurMermaidSelves

And, PLEASE, share with everyone you think would benefit and love to be a part of this process.

Ahhh, you’re here!

Welcome to the blog section of my website. I’m so glad you’re here!

I’ll be honest, I’m not a very good blogger. I’m just not consistant that way, lol. I will try to stop by and chat as often as possible (read: when I remember) but when I do I will promise to not be boring or waste your time! 🙂

I love to share interesting facts and unusual things about our world. I love to try and share things you may not know (and I LOVE to hear about it when you do know them)

I’ll also update you on major happenings with my art. More day to day things will be shared on social, by FB and my IG particularly but also LI if you use that too.

Anyhoo! Let’s take this journey together. We’ll explore and discover and fill our minds and souls with all the amazing things our world has to offer. Afterall, that’s what my art is all about and why, I hope, you’re here.

My art is for people inspired by the natural world, those who are obsessed with things of curiosity and fantasy and magic, who love woodlands & deserts & oceans, and dream of mystical spaces & far off places.
