About

Hand Drawn Geometrical Mandala's and Apparel

Hi, I’m Anastarr, welcome to my Etsy shop! I spend my days connecting with Geometrical shapes and designs, hand drawing each creation using color pencils, a compass and a straightedge as my helping tools. When I was 13 years old, my mother took me to live in India, where I began having these geometrical visions, and I’ve been drawing them ever since.

Every vision has a common theme, the center point! I always begin a drawing with the very center, moving outward from there. They are all different and unique in their own right, but they all have the one common center point, just like us as individuals! Each drawing is intended as a symbolic metaphor and helpful tool for re-centering back into our own truth and wisdom within. Wearing these images on our body serves as a constant reminder to return back to that center point of truth within.

Inspired by Nature, and stemming from concepts of Sacred Geometry/Geometrics, The Mandala, Crystals, and Color, Shape, and Number Symbology, each Vision is charged with significant and inspired meaning, thus representing a journey of self-empowering development and personal enhancement. I believe in the power of words and affirmation for self development, which is why I’ve created an affirmation for each drawing depending on its own unique properties.

Intuition also plays a big role in my work, which is why I so passionately encourage others to trust in their own intuitive guidance. It is a constant practice reversing patterns of judgement and self doubt, into trusting in our own truth and higher guidance. All of my drawings are ultimately guided from a deeply intuitive and effortless place. I remember reading the book Siddhartha, by Hermann Hesse when I was younger, and resonating so strongly with this quote:

“Within you, there is a stillness and a sanctuary to which you can retreat at anytime and be yourself.”

It’s said that Buddha’s own dying words were “Be a lamp unto yourself. Be your own Buddha.” Though I’m not a Buddhist, I do appreciate these words of encouragement to be your true self. I care deeply about finding that center of stillness within ourselves, that place of empowerment to be who we really are, where truth and wisdom await our arrival...

Sacred Geometry/Geometrics
Sacred Geometry is becoming more and more well known today, but is a very ancient language. Often referred to as “The Language of Light,” or “The Language of the Universe,” Sacred Geometry is the study of shape and form, wave and vibration, moving beyond third-dimensional reality, symbolizing the creation of all life. Sacred Geometry was and is used as a tool to aid in our movement toward higher conscious evolution. Sacred Symbols, such as the Flower of Life, can be found in ancient sites all over the world, including the Great Pyramids of Giza, to the The Forbidden City in China.

Geometrics help to connect us with our “heart-mind,” as they refer to it in India. The ancient Egyptians would call it “the intelligence of the heart.” It’s been my experience that the deeper we go into these forms the more we see that our intuition is enlivened through Geometrics, and the essence of who we are is purified and renewed because it resonates with a truth within. Geometrics are just another helpful tool like yoga, meditation, breath work, or exercise for self-development and re-centering.

“To attend the souls development is the highest good we can do”
~ Plato

The Mandala
A Mandala is commonly known as a spiritual ritual in Hinduism and Buddhism, representing the Universe. It is a journey, or "map" to our center, the process of death and rebirth, returning to the truth of who we really are as eternal beings. Many of my Visions are inspired by this process of journeying back to the center and truth of who we really are.

Crystals
Crystals and Minerals are some of my most favorite healing helpers, and have been a big inspiration in my artwork! I grew up on top of a mountain at 10,000 ft. elevation in Telluride Colorado with nothing but national forests surrounding us. I was always finding tiny white crystals all over our property and ever since then, it has always fascinated me that so many magnificently colored stones form naturally all over our planet earth! Crystals are a natural phenomenon made of solid material that form by an organized repeated pattern of atoms or molecules grouped together and arranged in regular geometrical patterns, similar to that of a snowflake crystal.

Like Sacred Geometry, ancient Crystals and Minerals have been used for spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical healing for thousands of years, and are still being used in our modern world today as energetic remedies. Each stone carries its own unique energetic structure, energy and vibration.

Color, Shape, and Number Symbology
Each color, shape, and number all hold different symbolic meaning. For example, the color Green symbolizes harmony, life, growth, fertility, and is a very healing color of nature. Gold is the color of protection and abundance, while White, my favorite, symbolizes peace and purity and contains the whole spectrum of all color.

Different shapes have different meaning, and tend to go hand in hand with number. A triangle, for example, has 3 points, 3 is the number of creativity, communication, and imagination. An upward facing triangle represents the masculine, while the downward is feminine, together creating a Star of David with 6 points. 6 can be a number of complete balance, but is more commonly linked with nature and earthly matters, such as that of a magnified snow crystal with 6 points. Each Vision goes into a little more detail, explaining the significance of each one.

I love what I do, and am so grateful to be able to call this my work and my life!
Thank you for visiting, and enjoy the journey back home to yourself!
