Love Yourself Deeply, and Start Creating Your Heaven on Earth!

Loving Truly

Start Loving Yourself Truly!

Do You Love Yourself?

Do you ever wonder whether you love yourself deeply and truly?

Do you love every bit of yourself?

Are there any parts of yourself that you hate?

Have you ever wondered whether you could love even those parts that you hate?

What do you love about yourself?

What do you hate about yourself?

Last year, I did a lot of inner work.  I worked on every aspect of my life that I could think of: money, relationships, forgiveness, my self-identity, and so on through listening to my heart as deeply as I could.

I had some good results from all those inner work, but at the same time,   I was punishing myself every time I found a negative pattern in myself.  Also, I was looking at myself as a damaged goods.  We probably can call it a trap of the spiritual work.

I didn’t notice what I was actually doing at the beginning, but as I was feeling exhausted and even a little depressed, I started to realize how important it is to love myself fully and truly.  Then, those questions above started to pop up in my head one by one.

The Right Information at the Right Time

These are the feelings and symptoms that I was experiencing about a month ago:

a heaviness in my head

a tightness in and around my heart

a chronic pain in the shoulders, upper back, and neck

a funky digestive system

an exhaustion

no motivation to start new creative things, and more…

I really wanted to know why I was feeling that way.  So, I asked the Universe for a help and started to research.

Then, I found a bunch of videos on YouTube by a research scientist, Dr. Joe Dispenza.  Boy, the Universe DOES know a perfect timing!  In those videos, Dr. Joe Dispenza explains how our emotions and mind affect our body, environment, and life from a scientific standpoint (if you are interested, watch this video).

Basically, what he says is that our emotional and thought patterns create neural pathways in our brain.  By thinking the same thoughts and same emotions, we strengthen those pathways.

For example, you tend to think, “I can’t afford it right now” everytime you find something you want to purchase.  Then, your brain creates the neural pathway.  Then, the brain keeps sending the same signal to the body and strengthen the pattern.  And then, your heart starts to sending the signal through its electromagnetic field to the Universe, and you become more and more prone not to be able to buy what you want.

Plus, while that’s happening, your fight/flight system becomes more active, because those negative thoughts and emotions are not loving for you.  So, you start to feel tired, unhappy, and depressed.

Bouncing Back

After I watched most of his videos and started to understand what was going on to myself biologically, I began to get my answers to those questions above.

Also, I started doing his meditations (this is the one I’ve been using), I was able to feel my body being reprogrammed on the genetic level.  All those exhaustions and depression were gone.

Also, I get a message from my true self every time I meditate and start loving one more part of myself such as:

“I belong here on Earth.”

“I love my life.”

“Stop reacting. Start creating.”

Not only that, I get clear images of what has been going on and how I can change them as if I’m downloading a new blueprint to start a new life as new ME.

It’s Time to Build My New Life!

Now that I understand how our mind creates our reality, I feel so hopeful.  I know there will be a long way ahead, but just by thinking that the more I become gentle on myself and love myself, the more easily I can create my heart desiring life, I feel very grateful to be existing right here right now as me.

The hopefulness helped me start drawing a new mandala, “Creating My Heaven on Earth”

Time to color!

I will probably have more realizations through drawing this mandala and through the process of creating the new life I want.  I will write about them as they come.  So, stay tuned!

The Sacred Method That Deepens Your Spiritual Growth- Tao of Mandala

“The mandala is an archetypal image whose occurrence is attested throughout the ages. It signifies the wholeness of the Self. This circular image represents the wholeness of the psychic ground or, to put it in mythic terms, the divinity incarnates in man.” – Carl G. Jung

You’ve read countless books about spirituality, personal development, and healing.

You’ve been diligently following the teachings of spiritual teachers for a long time.

You have so much knowledge about the divine love, the Universe, the Law of Attraction, etc.

You enjoy the conversation with people who are also enthusiastic about spirituality from the bottom of your heart.

You sometimes give your friends and family some spiritual advice.  They truly appreciate it which makes you feel content, and yet, you sometimes wonder,

“Am I doing it right?”

“Why am I still feeling stuck?”

“Why do I still keep falling into the same pattern?”

Do I sound like I’m reading your mind?  I’m not.  This was me for a long time.

Until recently, I was just soaking my feet in the ocean of the spirituality.  I realized that I needed to dive in fully if I wanted to live my spirituality as my true-self.

So let’s dive in.

Meditation and Mandalas

I talked about the benefits of meditation in my last post (The Simplest Way to Live as Your True-Self), here is the recap:


1. meditation balances your nervous system.

2. it calms the blood pressure.

3. it regulates the digestive system and relaxes your whole body.


you feel happier and start to have a healthy emotional boundary.


you get more clarity, focus, and productivity.

Also, I introduced mandalas as the powerful tool for your meditation practice in the same post.

Here are the benefits:

1. A circle or symmetrical geometric designs can calm your brain waves and nervous systems.

2. Looking at a mandala enhances all the benefits of meditation.

3. It leads you easily to the higher frequency of love rather than the lower frequency of fear.

4. It deepens your self-inquiry.

Now, I would like to dig a little deeper on both meditation and mandalas in this post.

Real, Deep Meditation Practice

There are different styles of meditation.  Type in the word “meditation” in the search box on YouTube, you will find hundreds of videos of guided meditations, meditations with special sound effects, and so on.

They are all useful, and some of them are very powerful.  I have both used them and uploaded guided meditations with my hand-drawn mandalas on YouTube (“Quan Yin’s Healing meditation,” “Forgiveness meditation,” and “Abundance meditation”) as well.

However, just recently, I noticed that my mind was getting busier during a guided meditation once I got used to it.

So, I decided just to sit still without any guidance, music or sound effects.  I started to listen deeply to myself for 20 minutes every morning and every evening.

Then, I started to feel more connected to myself, the surroundings, the Mother Earth and the Universe!

I notice every old emotion that is ready to be released.  I notice every memory and experience that needs to be embraced.  And I can feel and hear the guidance of my true-self.

So, here is what I believe now.

If you want to solve specific patterns like a financial issue or a relationship issue, guided meditations are useful.  It is like receiving a great healing session.

If you want to connect more to your true-self, you need time to be with you.  You need to listen deeply to your wholeness. Allow every level of you to relax in your divinity by sitting quietly in stillness for 20 minutes every morning.  Set your day with the Universe and Mother Earth.  For another 20 minutes every evening, sit still to cleanse your day like you take a shower before you go to bed.

I really recommend this deep meditation practice if you want to trust yourself more, accept yourself more and love yourself more.

Tao of Mandala

As you could see in the quote at the top by the Swiss psychotherapist, Carl G. Jung, he not only used mandalas for his work with his clients but also drew them for his own personal development.

I’ve been drawing mandalas for several years now.  Each mandala helped me dig deeper within me.  They reminded me of the importance of living as the expanded consciousness, NOT the small me.  They also led me to the inner stillness.

I call these brilliant effects Tao of Mandala.

Here are the benefits that I have found in drawing mandalas:

1. it calms you.

When I draw, I use a technique called stippling (drawing with dots).  Though it requires a lot of patience, it also leads you to deep meditative space.

2. it helps you to listen more deeply to yourself.

To create any artwork, you explore inside you to find what you want to express.

3. it helps you to learn to trust your instinct (your true self).

Your instinct tells you what designs or what colors to use.

4. it helps you to connect you to your own divine creation.

Like Jung said, a mandala is an art that expresses your wholeness or your divinity.  To draw your mandala, you naturally connect to your own divine creation.

5. it helps you to learn how to tune into the higher vibration of energy.

This happens to me when I draw healing energy into a mandala such as “Quan Yin’s Healing Energy.”  I tuned into her healing energy and became a facilitator for it while I was drawing it.

6. it helps you to learn how to hold space for your or someone’s wholeness.

By drawing mandalas, you learn to tune into your expanded consciousness.  From there, you can hold space for your or someone’s wholeness.  Then, you start to see yourself, everyone and everything through your divine eyes.  I will write a little more about this point in the next chapter.

Inner Life Mandalas

I draw two types of mandalas: healing mandalas and personal (customized) mandalas.

Healing mandalas are the ones expressing the higher healing vibration such as “Awakening” below.  When you meditate with them, the energy of the mandalas helps you accelerate the inner work you are working on and heal from within.

a mandala titled "Awakening"


I call the other type of mandalas – personal mandalas – Inner Life Mandalas.

The process of creating one goes like this:

1. I have an interview with the customer and build trust by going over his/her goals and intentions for the mandala.

2. I meditate on the wholeness of the person and tune into the deepest quality of his/hers.  Then, those qualities come to me as designs and colors.

3. I start drawing.

By doing these, I get to see, sense and know the person for the way they are through his/her beautiful, precious essence.  Even though the 15-minute interview is the only time I spent with the person, I always feel like I’ve known him/her for a long, long time.  I believe that sensation is true.  I think I’m in the zone of ONENESS during the creation.

The Experiences of Drawing My Own

After I drew a few Inner Life Mandalas for some customers, I drew my own.

My Inner Life Mandala

Usually, I feel awed by the powerful, beautiful energy of the person’s essence, but that didn’t happen while I was drawing mine.  To tell you the truth, I felt a little disappointed.

However, an interesting thing happened to me when I put my Inner Life Mandala under the massage table during my Craniosacral therapy session.

As soon as the session started, my practitioner, who is my craniosacral therapy mentor, said,

“Wow, this is so powerful!”

I started to feel my whole body trembling slightly, especially along the spine.  It felt like a high vibration of energy was adjusting the core of my body.

Then, the relaxing, and yet, powerful energy expanded into my whole body and into my whole energy field.  I felt so relaxed that my consciousness also went into a deep meditative state.

After the session, my mentor told me that the energy of my Inner Life Mandala was alchemically adjusting my whole system.  That was exactly what I was feeling.

Since then, my whole life shifted.  I’ve had so many revelations of old emotional, mental, and behavioral patterns.  I got to embrace them and let them go.  I quit the part time job that was just for paying the bills.  Then, I started my blog and mandala business to live my heart desired life fully.

I’m still on the way to my final goal, and I sometimes feel overwhelmed by the challenges I face.  When that happens, I rest my body and brain and meditate with my Inner Life Mandala to adjust my course.

Inner Life Mandala is a great reminder of who you truly are and an awesome guide for your life path.

(I’m having an Inner Life Mandala campaign right now.  For details, please check this page.)

To Conclude,

The busier our life gets, the more important it becomes to have a quality time with yourself.  The real, deep meditation is perfect for it.  It helps us more grounded, become good listeners to other people and ourselves, and act from the love based decisions, NOT fear based decisions.

Mandala is a great tool to deepen your meditation practice.  By drawing them, you start to know who you truly are better and better.  By meditating with them, they deepen your meditation practice, guide you to your deepest quality, and help you create your life you want.

How to Manifest the Most Fulfilled Life You Dream

Writing down the plans for your most fulfilled life you dream


~ Creating Your Fulfilled Life = Creating an Artwork ~

Have you set New Year’s resolutions this year?  Usually, I don’t set them, but this year, I really needed to figure out the next step for my most fulfilled life as a healer, an artist, and a blogger.

So, I spent two full days to think about them.  Here is what I did on New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day.

I sat down at the desk with a pen and pieces of paper.  Some vague ideas about what I wanted in my life popped into my head.  So, I wrote them down.  Then, I started to think deeper about each idea and wrote them all down.

Like I said, I spent two days!  I ended up filling  3 pieces of paper top to bottom with the reasons why I want them, the schedules to get to the goals, and of course, how I get the good results out of them.

In the end, those vague ideas became achievable plans.  Even the crazy ideas like “I’m going to make six figures of annual income” have become down-to-earth plans.

Also, I realized that it was just like creating my mandala art.

Let’s start creating THE life you dream.

Here are the 3 steps that I took for my New Year’s resolutions and how I created a mandala called “Manifestation.”

Step 1 for art: I wrote “Manifestation” at the top of a paper and drew a big circle.

Step 1 for resolutions:  Write down your biggest dreams on a piece of paper.

Start writing everything you want in your life.  They don’t have to make any sense.

Go as big as you can.  Even bigger than you ever imagined.  Turn off your critical inner voice and enjoy the conversation with your most ambitious self in your heart.

The key is writing all down.  A few research show that writing down your intentions raise the possibility to get good results way higher than just thinking about them.

Do you want to know how higher?  Here is what one study showed:

The study was published in the “British Journal of Health Psychology” in 2010.

Researchers picked 248 people and put them randomly in three groups, hoping to get them start exercising.

Group 1: They asked the people to keep track of how much they exercised over the next 2 weeks.

Group 2: They asked the people to read a leaflet about the benefits of exercise to reduce heart disease and track their exercise over the next 2 weeks.

Group 3: This group received the same leaflet as Group 2.  They were also asked to write down what day and time they would do their 20 minutes of vigorous exercise over the next 2 weeks.

Here are the results:

Group 1: 38% exercised at least once a week.

Group 2: 35% exercised at least once a week.

Group 3: (Drum roll, please!) 91% exercised at least once a week.

As you can clearly see, not just writing down, but writing down into details makes a huge difference.

So, that’s what we are going to do next.

Step 2 for art: The detailed designs filled the big circle.  A seed of a dream is held by two hands.  The bright light of the sun is shining on the seed.  With the love and water, the seed grows into a beautiful flower of manifestation.  (You will get to see the mandala a little later.  You’ll know what I’m talking about here.)

Step 2 for resolutions: Start planning in details how you achieve your dreams.

The first thing for Step 2 is to go deep into your heart and ask for some clarity and guidance on how exactly you are going to manifest your dreams.

Start writing whatever comes to your mind and start researching on them.  What methods or training are available out there to get you through this adventure?  How long will it take for you to go through them?

Here is a little warning.  The amount of information you can get on the Internet can overwhelm you.  So, remember to research well and select wisely.

Then, start planning in details on what exactly you need to do monthly, weekly, and daily.

Again, the key is to write them all down.

Step 3 for art: I re-drew the whole mandala on a piece of black paper, and then, started to color it with gel pens dot by dot.

Step 3 for resolutions: Commit yourself fully in the daily routines.

This step requires a great deal of patience, determination, and faith.

Here are the keys to getting through this step:

  1. While you stick to your routines, stay creative and flexible.  You never know what inspires you.
  2. Be a good listener to yourself and others to get even more inspirations.
  3. Have 100% faith in yourself.  Don’t let anyone else’s opinions cloud your view.
  4. Enjoy the process by choosing fiercely to hold the higher vibration of love and joy.  Don’t allow any negative or lower vibration to drag you down.
  5. When challenged, take a deep breath, slow down, and go deep within to know what you can learn from the challenges and evolve more.  
  6. Adjust the plan regularly so you can stay calm, NOT overwhelmed.

By the time you are going through this step, you probably feel that your biggest dream ever isn’t just a dream anymore.  It is achievable.  Something great is already around the corner!

Bonus tip

After some hard work, you need a reward, right?  So, here is a bonus tip.  Every time you accomplish a step, celebrate your achievement and let everyone know about it.  It gives you more motivations for the next step.

It is like having the artwork of yours framed and exhibiting it at an art show.

You start to attract more people who are interested in what you do, greater opportunities, and more inspirations.  You are unstoppable now!

Now, do you want to see how the mandala, “Manifestation,” came out?  Here you go:

Mandala, "Manifestation," helps you create your fulfilled life

Manifest your fulfilled life!

A miraculous experience of mine that proves these 3 steps work

In my early 30‘s, I received a Craniosacral Therapy session when I visited one of my friends in the US.  The experience was beyond amazing.  My heart kept pouring out lots of love after the session.

It was THE calling.  The moment that I felt the love, becoming a Craniosacral Therapist became my dream, and I wrote it down in my journal.

At that time, all the good training of the therapy happened in the US, and I was living in Japan with very little saving.  The dream felt impossible, but I started to research anyway on how to get a green card and found out that the US has a green card lottery every year.

I started to apply for it.  Also, I got a full-time job with good salaries and an excellent boss.  I moved in with my parents to save money faster.

The job that I got was so great that I learned a lot from it.  Plus, the good salaries allowed me to take English classes and a healing modality course that would prepare myself for my dream.  I enjoyed every experience while I was waiting for the good news about the lottery.

At the second try, I won my green card.  The ratio to win was less than 2%.  Winning that fast was nothing but a miracle.  I was so excited!

It took me another year to go through all the process of actually getting my green card.  And by the time the process completed, I saved enough money to move and settle in the US.  The timing on everything was perfect.

Now, here I am writing about my experiences as a blogger, a certified Craniosacral Therapist and a mandala artist as I wished 17 years ago.

I could do it.  You can do it.

It’s your turn!

Once you start and commit yourself entirely, you’ve already opened a door to success and closed the door behind you.  When the right time comes, everything begins to play in harmony, and Voila!  You are already there before you know it.

The first step is always a hard one, but think of it as creating an artwork of yours.  A masterpiece whose title is “Your Dream Life.”  It’s very exciting, isn’t it?

What would you like to create as your masterpiece?  What color and designs would you use to create it?  What methods would you use?  You get to express your true gifts and passions on a big canvas.

Yes, there are always some challenges, but even they become your motivations for the next step.

Now, it’s time for you to pick up a pen and paper.  Start writing down your dreams and create your most fulfilled life!
