We welcome in the energies of the August 2023 Mandala.
August 2023 Mandala, Energy & Affirmation
August 2023 Mandala of the Month, with the affirmation of “Even if you’re ‘late’, just start”.
So that is the message for us: to just start. It really doesn’t matter if we are late or if we’re not, because time is relative and what looks to us like someone else starting early, may just be that person’s late. So with that being said, I ask you:
What does it matter WHEN you start, when what matters is that you DO start?
How does that feel to you?
Doesn’t that take a little pressure off of your shoulders?
Life is hard enough as it is so why put extra pressure on yourself to get it all done in a day? Yes, some things do have a deadline and by all means stick to that. If you cannot then reflect on why that is and move through that.
For everything else, the pressure we put on ourselves can be unnecessary and we could end up dropping something we really wanted because we couldn’t do it in the time frame WE set out for it. We are literally removing the joy from our lives when we do this.
If there is no time frame, let go and explore! Start even if you:
- think it will be bad
- are not ready
- don’t have all the skills, tools, whatever
- only have 5-10 minutes to dedicate instead of hours
August Journal Inspo:
This August, think about whether you’re putting unnecessary or unrealistic time frames, pressures, and/or boundaries on the things you want to try, experiment with, or do. Can you remove some of that pressure and make space to start and explore? Is it possible for you to dedicate 5-10 minutes to simply make a start at it? How can you take more time instead of less? ➡️ Journal about it!
Think about what YOU can do for YOU with the things that call to your heart, because you know that if you had it all right now, you would start, but you most likely don’t, so start with what you have now.

How to use a mandala of the month print:
Print it in your favorite size and use! Have fun and be creative!
- Stick it in your journal with goals for the new month or reflect back on the month. When reflecting include a gratitude practice and a release practice to let go on anything that didn’t serve you so as to make room for the new.
- Stick it on your wall to remind you of what you’d like to call into for the new month. What’s your word of the month, what are you manifesting, etc.
- Keep it in your sacred space for something pretty dedicated to the new month.
- Take it a step further and pair it with crystals to create a crystal grid for your new month.
My favorite way to use these: I print mine in an A5 size to cut out and stick into my journal. Currently I am using it to reflect back on the month: things I’ve learnt, places I’d like to soften into for my mental health, and what I want to call into for the new month.
