Free stone meditation printables

When Stones Get Effed Up

When you eff something up, throw it back into the water. Let the waves and time wash clean your attachments to a desired outcome. (mandala stone rejects from jenny hoople)

I could show you the awesome ‪#‎hooplemandalas‬ I painted this week, but I’d rather show you the rejects:   When something doesn’t go as planned, keep going until it’s amazing. If it becomes totally effed up instead of becoming amazing, then throw it back in the water so the universe can turn it back into… Read more »
