A Birthday Labyrinth

TLS 365 Experience #86
May 25, 2017

How many consider creating a birthday labyrinth?

I suggested the idea of walking on your birthday and sharing the experience for our collective 365 Experience. Where I have created quite a multitude of playful and meaningful paths over the years, it seems only fitting to celebrate an individual commemorative or purposeful path  for meaningful meander in honoring this annual celebration of life that we engage with in a way that is unique to each.

Next year I will be changing decades, so it seemed an enjoyable idea for a celebration of the nine years I have been in this one. I chose a nine circuit path and reflected on the beginning of this decade and on each path wandered into the next year. What a wonderful review it was and a great way to begin this last lap with a last laugh in all I have waiting for me in the next 365 days!

As if led to this point without mistake, I step into this year with newness. Cleansed intensely by the old, I know this will be a prosperous and joyous year of cultivating creativity and imagination will find its service in and for the world in a most playful and profoundly planetary manner.

Walk With

TLS 365 Experience #85
May 24, 2017

We can have an experience of the labyrinth often with our eyes.

After a walk, I sit in contemplation in the park off on a bench just reflecting and observing what’s around me. Another walker may come to walk and my distance gives them a private experience. Though from that far away I can observe something in their walk that often adds a further reflection to my own.

I am reminded of when I think I know, and then someone or something comes along to show me what I don’t know… or what I really do. I think it’s a reflection that we truly don’t walk alone in this world.

Fun

TLS 365 Experience #84
May 23, 2017

Look at me, zipping through the paths as I do the thing I don’t normally do. I run, skip and even dance a bit today being more myself than ever.

Not realizing, not thinking, just letting my heart soar as I become a sense of frolic making my movement not a walk, but a playful adventure of discovery.

This is fun.

Walking With The Body

TLS 365 Experience #83
May 22, 2017

I walk a lot.
I like to walk.
When I am on a long walk in nature it is a fabulous thing to be reminded of how natural we truly are. There is a sense of naturalness that I relate to as I walk the labyrinth.

As I move inward in a spiraling way and recognize the shifts in the turn that occur on my journey inward, I recogize the natural way our body flows. The brain and the belly each wind themselves inward to a central location, though along the way there are these turns that seem to take slighly different directions, only to return again moving inward. The fingerprints navigate in the same manner as does the fine circuitry of our inner ears, though looking at the design in our outer ear makes for wonder as well.

When we look more closely at the body design, there is much to indicate that it’s natural operation is very labyrinth in nature. So when I do place my foot upon the path to begin a walk and focus on the whole of my body, I find that everything about me is alert to the steps I take in a most natural way.

Sometimes

TLS 365 Experience #82
May 21, 2017

Sometimes there is pressure and sometimes there is stress.
Sometimes I create it and sometimes I allow it.

It’s times like these that I take out that handy little labyrinth in my pocket and begin to remember what I am doing, why I am doing it and where I am going with it all.

Sometimes I want to savor it and go very slowly, I remember how precious this time is for me.
Sometimes I just want to know the answer so I speed through the experience, it is then that I get the idea that maybe I ought to slow down and review. Amazing how that makes it all clear.
Sometimes I am very present and I ask a question, and sometimes I don’t.
Sometimes I get an immediate answer and sometimes I don’t… it comes in the next metaphor.

The thing about this walk of curiosity, is that when I do it, I never know what to expect… and sometimes, the sometimes is a very telling thing indeed.

So Many Ideas Flowing

TLS 365 Experience #81
May 20, 2017

When I walk the labyrinth and ideas come, they tend to come as a bolt of lightning, sudden and full blown.

Complete.

My frustration is that there are more ideas than there is time to follow through on all of them.

My comfort is that I read somewhere that visionaries often have a 5-year lag time between the conception of a big dream and its total fulfillment

In To and Out of

TLS 365 Experience #80
May 19, 2017

With intuitive wonder, I walk the path with wider eyes and peaceful heart.
I know that what is within will emerge to have counsel with my external being.
With each turn something unwinds and something allows.
Spiraling inward I meet my quiet voice.
In the center all the walls drop away and I am connected.
The inside and the outside are now the same. I listen, I feel and I know.
I move to create reflection and affirm the message, seeing evidence appear in the signs that are now everywhere and clear.
Where I walk into a labyrinth,
I walk out of another.
Love those winding paths!

Discerning is Learning

TLS 365 Experience #79
May 18, 2017

Listening into the idea of discernment with a group, we discussed the nature of it in ways of movement, listening, globally and universally present, following a truth and understanding that we don’t have to see or know the whole as we begin, though we understand it more completely in the end.

This was merely a conversation that the labyrinth embodies. When we listen and move with presence, we grow into the global awareness that allows us to follow the path honestly. We know we will find a center with reflection.  We realize too, the whole of the experience is found in the steps we take to create it.

I find in the step by step approach on the path, learning is discerning, and discerning is learning.

The Intuitive Walks

TLS 365 Experience #78
May 17, 2017

In this quarterly focus of education, the idea of what the labyrinth offers for the intuitive nature is a life education of what we have within. The way of the path provides a walk into possibility, the moment we engage with our first step. Not always, but often a question is asked at the beginning. It is an intention for meaning of the walk, though with the relaxation that takes place in brain and body, what can come forth is an internal knowing along with an understanding that can direct us to the details that come along with that intention.

I find when I walk as a practice, I develop more of my knowing and growing intentionally and intuitively.

There Can Be Joy

TLS 365 Experience #77
May 16, 2017

One would think that an individual who promotes positivity and possibility in their work would be surrounded by it, though the truth is that those who work with this often encounter negativity regularly. It is a necessary part to explore, accept and improve our message.  We remind those who accept stress as a normalcy that there are techniques and choices to explore what we are truly capable of, should we dare to live differently.

I use the labyrinth for my personal introspection, faith and the conversation of hope for my everyday experiences. In this I am not alone and am reminded of the vitality and importance of my work. It reminds me of what I truly believe when I have doubt in the dealings of delivery to others who just need a reminder.

When I offer a walk of joy on the labyrinth, it speaks to the truth of my own doubts and reminders and offers the choice for living our birthright purposefully. It is not a straight shot, rather it is a winding, turning, spiraling that may seem confusing, though beyond that always has a path that provides a way to the center, and no matter what we want to make up about it… the center is always a center.
