Be still and listen.
Embrace the song of your heart.
Be who you are.
It’s OK to feel.
It’s OK to cry.
It’s OK to be imperfect.
It’s OK to run wild.
So just be.
Allow yourself to be free.
In the midst of chaos
Find your own harmony.
“ALL I AM” – 70x70cm mandala, acrylic on canvas.
In the center of a mandala a delicate flower is born, bringing new life and hope, which melts away the remaining ice from a long winter. It’s colored bright yellow from the Sun to warm up a sad heart with strength and joy. It gently reminds us that is time to let go of the old and welcome the new. The 12 petals represent great understanding and wisdom. Knowledge that is gained from life experiences which enables a sense of calm to prevail in even in the most turbulent situations.
Hues of green are illuminating the entire mandala. Green symbolizes self-respect and well being. It contains the powerful energies of nature, balance, growth and harmony. It is also the color of the heart chakra.
Change and transformation is necessary for growth, and so this ability to sustain changes is also a part of the energy of green.
As the mandala continues to grow it forms a white lotus flower, which sits on emerald leaves of love. As a lotus is able to emerge from muddy waters unspoilt and pure, it is considered to represent spiritual enlightenment; a person who carries out their tasks with little concern for any reward and with a full liberation from attachment.
The completed mandala is surrounded by 12 little fireflies to remind that which is within us will always illuminate us and those around us.

It’s been a long time since I last posted on my blog. I am going trough some big changes and there are many things that need to be sorted out and completed – so I don’t really have time for writing. I am full of visions and new ideas – sometimes I can’t even fall asleep because my mind is filled with so many things and I get frustrated, because I know that its impossible to manifest all my ideas – time is my enemy here. But I guess this is just part of my learning process. And also I believe in divine order, so I know that everything is going to be alright – well, already is. Right?
Recently I am working on a complete redesign of my website timeavarga.com – I don’t know yet, when will it be done, I just know that it does not represent me anymore, It is just a memory of someone I was in the past. I am not the same person anymore. Life happened, I grew and I changed. However today I managed to update my about page :). The rest can wait a little while. I am also working on a mandala store, that I am going to set up on Etsy. It will be up after Halloween. ;)
It’s almost midnight so I say goodbye with a very special mandala and a short poem I just wrote:
Floating between light and dark
What is right and where do things turn wrong?
Maybe I will never know….
I am just dancing in the dark
with immortal light in my heart.
Sweet dreams! With much love, Timea
The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen. (Elisabeth Kübler-Ross)

Mandala by Timea Varga, color pencils, 2012
There is time for music, laughter and self expression and there is time for complete silence. Learn when to stop and take a step back to see the whole picture.
Enjoy this peaceful moment and be thankful for it with all your being. Regain your energy, find new wisdom and prepare for the next step.
Love and Light.

Sometimes you may be confused by all the different paths you can take. Well the choice is always yours and there is nothing to be afraid of! Your heart will always guide you into the right direction. Choose the path that brings you joy, the one you will be able to walk on with passion. However sometimes you will not be able to understand why did you end up in some place or relationship. Be patient. time will give you all the answers.
Don’t take life to seriously, after all its just a ride. Enjoy it as much as you can and live it with passion and purpose!

Mandala by Timea Varga, mixed media, 2012
I am the Spirit of the Water.
I am the Great Mother of Life.
As I travel the World,
The song of the Moon keeps me in motion.
I form valleys and mountains.
I wash away all poison.
I am the keeper of all secrets.
My knowledge is infinite.
I am a part of you.
And you are a part of me.
I gave you birth and I keep you alive.
Elemental mandala by Timea Varga, color pencil, 2012
We are all one and every separation is an illusion!
Compassion toward all beings is essential in order to reach true spiritual enlightenment. Never judge or criticize, just accept everyone for who they are. If you can help – ACT, when you must walk away – GO.
Life is a game. Enjoy it to its fullest but try to play it fair. Today it’s fashionable to believe that being selfish is a virtue, but there is a big difference between selfishness and self-esteem. One is powerful Ego, the other is strong Spirit. However in some situations you will need your Ego in order to survive. So don’t fight it, just accept it!
When you find yourself in a challenging situation with someone, don’t waste your energy on trying to change him, neither changing yourself for him. Focus on accepting your differences. Your mind is the only thing you can control.
BE AWARE OF YOUR THOUGHTS! You are the only thinker in your Universe and you are responsible for what you think of others.
Make peace with your Self and honor everyone, because….
YOU ARE ONE WITH EVERYTHING!
What you create today inside, will manifest tomorrow outside.
Crown chakra mandala by Timea, color pencils, 2007
Love yourself deeply, without conditions! In order to be able to take good care of yourself you have to find your Inner Mother and make peace with her. She wants you to be happy, safe and healthy and she can teach you how to be gentle with your Inner Child and nurture yourself with love.
She can help you overcome past traumas and show you how to grow beautiful roses of compassion and forgiveness in your Soul’s garden . She is your guide and protector. Ask her for help when you have to fight your fears.
Be gentle and understanding with your children, family and partner. Accept and love yourself! This will transform your Heart and Spirit and bring healing into all your relationships!
Love and be loved! You deserve it!
Personal mandala by Timea, 2010
When you feel lost, anxious, depressed, unbalanced or demotivated GO OUTSIDE AND TOUCH THE EARTH.
Sit down on the ground and feel how Earth Mother takes away your worries deep into her center where they magically transform and return to you as blessings.
As you’re being grounded feel how Earth is healing you by filling you up with new strength and stability.
Be thankful for all the gifts and return to your home reborn!
I am the celebration of LIFE.
With patience I GROW.
With gratitude I DIE.
With love I BORN AGAIN.
I am STRENGTH.
I am ABUNDANCE.
I am HOME.
