The Mandala of Divine Union
The Mandala of Divine Union, the BHLD trademark is a colorful representation of Margaret McCraw’s teachings, layered with meaning for our company. The six-pointed star represents a perfectly balanced life: the perfect union of all energies. It appears four times, each star nested within the larger, representing “worlds within worlds” and the four planes of consciousness (physical, emotional, intellectual and transpersonal). Two intersecting circles that share the same radius–called a vesica piscis–symbolizes common ground, shared vision, or mutual understanding between two individuals.
Each color also has a meaning, purple for freedom, enlightenment, and transformation; aqua for letting go of ego; green for growth, evolution, and expansion; deep pink for unconditional love; yellow for wisdom, illumination, and understanding. The rays of white light are pulsations from the points of light and represent well-being that occurs when we are balanced and live with harmony in our lives.
