The Rainbow Spirit healing Mandala symbolizes your spiritual self-identity. "Mandala" is a Sanskrit word meaning "sacred circle" of wholeness and holiness that generates energy.
In 1965, Ralph Davis designed his first mandala from toothpicks and his mother's yarn as a mobile for his newborn daughter. His art designs are both contemporary and traditional and come alive when completed.
Davis was born in Chinle, Ariz. His mother is from the Mississippi band of Choctaw, and his father's Navajo clan is the Yeii Dineh Ta Chii Nii, meaning Rainbow Spirit people." The Rainbow Spirit people are spiritual beings of light who traveled to Earth upon the rainbow to help the surface people plagued by hunger, poverty, disease and premature death.
The purpose of the Rainbow Spirit People is to help suffering people to understand their true spiritual nature. When their Earthly work is completed, the Rainbow Spirit People return to the spirit world on the other half of the rainbow, making a complete circle, and returning again when needed.
Ralph uses the face of a yeii bii chai -- a spiritual leader, protector, provider and healer -- as the painted center of his mandalas. Radiating from this wooden center are spokes intricately woven with rainbow colors into sacred geometric designs that vibrate with healing energy.
As he is weaving, Ralph knows that the designs are inspired and created for a specific owner having a specific need. The mandala knows who the owner is and the spiritual needs of the owner. The power of each mandala's design elevates the consciousness of the person to change the perception of his or her self-identity.
Each mandala is blessed with cedar smoke and eagle feather for the intention of the owner. The message of the mandala is to accept the perfection of the Creator within us that is wellness. Through Ralph's work, this teaching is being given to others seeking wholeness and holiness.
Ralph's Rainbow Spirit healing Mandalas reaffirm we are one with the creatires, creation and the Creator as co-creators within the circle of light, life, love, and laughter, forever.
