The labyrinth is a mechanism activated by our intent and appreciation of our own ability to understand what it contributes, and how it contributes to our life in any given moment that we choose to explore and experience it.

When its all said and done, its an invitation.

A Week of Blessings

Day 334  November 30
In The Year of Honest Living
In The Quarter of: Contribution
In The Month of: Grateful Pathways

Week Four: Counting Your Blessings

In this vast week of blessings, appreciation for the eye opening explorations to see more blessings in more places has magnified the experience of gratitude. Finding the great and full nature of the labyrinth’s ample design for discoveries, inquiries, investigations and experiments into body, mind and soul provided more comprehensive understanding of a thankful nature. The combination of the labyrinth experience and gratitude has evidenced and generated a positive far reaching experiential education of gratitude in the blessings it has provided. 

The Blessings Labyrinth by TheAmusedMuse.comA Week of Blessings

The seven paths of the Blessing Labyrinth have offered copious benefits, education, insights and results that are inexhaustible in the profuse benefits of gratitude blessings. 

Path One – Beyond what we may know, the exploration that is outside the normal can be walked to realize a normal existence and a more natural inquisitive one.  

Path Two – Lessons are a continual source of learning, affirming, realizing and recognizing ourselves and our environs for their blessings. Rediscover the path today.

Path Three – Embracing an experience is to fully appreciate the experiential nature of both the blessings of the labyrinth and the labyrinth of blessings provided. Refresh your path today with the week’s memorable day.

Path Four – Savoring the experience furthers the understanding and appreciation that multiply the benefits of the blessings received.Review the savory path.

Path Five – Sharing becomes the ultimate in contribution from a learned and knowing place that is experientially aware and present to purposeful and usefulness that blessings provide. Reflect on your sharing pathway.

Path Six – Actionable Orientations and the combined collective of the suffix of ING  offered an exemplary and comprehensive experience path to reconstruct today.

Path Seven – Surplus describes the enormity of the results of gratitude in the blessings that have a way of showing us the relative preponderance we may become a part of when in step with giving and receiving the review of blessings.  

A summary walk of all will infuse a plethora of gratitude.

** The design of this labyrinth used the seven days for seven paths, navigating four quadrants while taking in four of the qualities of blessings and spiraling into the remaining three to concentrate the abundance that walking with blessings provide for an intense immersion of all things blessed by theamusedmuse.com

A Week of Appreciation

Day 326  November 22
In The Year of Honest Living
In The Quarter of: Contribution
In The Month of: Grateful Pathways

Week Three: Appreciation

Using the letters of the word of appreciation and dividing them between cause and effect, offered and insightful experience of moving with and through the path of the labyrinth each day this week.  Assigning two letters each day offered an element of appreciation to walk into as a  beginning of the walk and a word of focus to bring reflection and ending with another aspect of appreciation. The week has offered many gifts and much in gratitude. 

Where the abundance of appreciation can be found within its own framework, we might begin to see a way to apply lessons of the labyrinth as learning for ourselves in a way we can appreciate.

The Appreciation Labyrinth Design by TheAmusedMuse.com
Summarizing the Seven Paths of Appreciation

The seven paths of the Appreciation Labyrinth have had both inward and outward experiences and a summary path in the center to explore. Walk to review the appreciation.

Path One – Acceptance became a stride of focus to provide for the possibilities that followed. Walk on the ways in which you created appreciation for each. 

Path Two – Praise in reflective walk gives rise to what we recognize, making us appreciative of the experiences. Walk with the appreciation that was applied this week.

Path Three – Esteemed awareness is an earnest appreciation of our greater abilities that make us cherish and be cherished more in appreciation. Walk reflectively.

Path Four – Improvement inspires applause. As we are continually changing, the direction of improving makes us more appreciative with cause for applause. Review your week of growing wonder and appreciation. 

Path Five – Treasured existence, abilities and acknowledgement helps us to realize how invaluable we truly are. Walk with the appreciation that grew this week. 

Path Six – Obliged and full of gratitude, our experiences become noteworthy and significantly appreciated. Walk with great appreciation for your week’s experiences.

Path Seven – Let the center path of this labyrinth be the summarizing experience of bringing the magnitude of your creation and development into an abundance of appreciation of what you grew and put effort in knowing.

 

** The design of this labyrinth was created using the seven days for seven paths navigating the inner walk and the outer walk each day in highlighted significance for daily infusions of the largeness of appreciation. The repeating reversing of the three outer paths, provide more time to increase value in knowing the first three elements with appreciative perspective. The design was from a peace labyrinth created years prior by theamusedmuse.com

Praise and Recognition

Day 321  November 17
In The Year of Honest Living
In The Quarter of: Contribution
In The Month of: Grateful Pathways

Week Three: Appreciation

What we put in, we take away and in the labyrinth, it is as simple as walking in, through to realization and walking out with a little different realization. It isn’t always obvious, though there is always something that occurs, even if it seems like nothing at all happened, that is something. 

To be heard, seen and acknowledged is a simple appreciation and acknowledgement of our contribution. It is a kindness to recognize the deeds of others for their service or additions. When we do we realize that each plays an integral part and that all efforts are appreciated. 

From praise to recognition labyrinth path by TheAmusedMuse.comWalking in and Walking Out

Walk in with Praise 

Step into praise and learn the benefit that takes over when extolling the virtues of another. To speak well of a fellow human is to speak well of our consideration for wellness in the world. It says much about the individual who can honestly venerate the deeds or consciousness of another for the sole purpose of affirming quality.  Praise is a virtue to walk with today to find worth in another and acknowledge it in ourselves. We can admire, honor, affirm and hold in esteem others, yet when we can praise them and their efforts, we acknowledge with appreciation the feeling in ourselves

 Walk out with Recognition

The worthy act of praise exalts the value of what it praises and raises the vibration of the praiser. It gives recognition of its quality, merits and characteristics that of high caliber and elevation that bring a sense of the feeling of appreciation. This recognition can also be a catalyst to raise the praise, so the two are well matched in their combined work of acknowledging higher attributes and raising esteemed value. In a world that wants to be heard, seen and witnessed, recognition works at a simple level, and with complexity to elevate the feeling of appreciation.

Praise to Recognition

Observe the experience of walking in with praise and out in recognition.

Appreciation

Day 319  November 15
In The Year of Honest Living
In The Quarter of: Contribution
In The Month of: Grateful Pathways

Week Three: Appreciation

We’ve explored the expression and the expansion elements of gratitude, and this week we delve into a week in the power of feeling. It is much more than a tactile approach as it involves the somatic bodily realization, thought process, related emotion, sensory, energetic and soul emanating understanding all wrapped into the experience of gratitude called appreciation. 

As an element of gratitude, appreciation puts us in touch with what shapes our ability to know in a way that elevates our understanding. As appreciation is longer lettered than our seven day experiences, in six days two letters will be appreciated on the path of what we take into our walk and what we take out of it.

Each day of the week of Appreciation is met with two letters, one leads us in and the other leads us out. Explore the words that make up appreciation as the third element of gratitude. This week begins with walking into the labyrinth with the concept of Acceptance of mind, body and soul and walks out of the experience with Possibilities. On this first path of the week, observe the movement between and the experiential understanding of that navigation.

Steps to Appreciation to Experience:

  • A labyrinth walk is appreciated in steps and stages. 

 • Consider what you have and want to have. 

 • Begin with an intention of Acceptance

 • Walk with what you know and let it grow 

 • In what lands on your path, acknowledge.

 • Accept what you can 

 • Consider what lands on mind, in body, of soul or of  

   another. 

 • Acknowledge and accept the little things you see to  

   the big things that you cannot, all as you are able.      

 • Continue, keep walking and discovering.

 • Observe what is occurring, what becomes possible.

 • Realize what is possible to accept. 

 • Realize how much more is possible and accepted.

 • Focus on what is possible. 

 • Notice how possibility grows.

 • Observe appreciation quietly growing.

Mystery

Day 290  October 17
In The Year of Honest Living
In The Quarter of: Contribution
In The Month of: Message, Metaphor and Magic

Image of a stone labyrinth in the midsts of Mystery Metaphor

Topic: Mystery

Where the unexplainable finds explanation on the labyrinth or a resolve to appreciate the mystery as is.


The  Message:

Mystery is the unknown quantity in the quality of life. It is what surfaces to replace wonder when the unexplainable can no longer be explained from our level of reference. We will never know all the questions, nor all the answers, though if we are curious, we may define how to raise our appreciation for learning. There are great mysteries and small minor questions that travel with us throughout life. Take a few onto the labyrinth to unwind meaning, message, metaphor or even a little magical understanding. The secret to appreciating mystery is in not having to solve everything. Mystery makes us walk a little farther and explore a little more. 

The Magic: 

Whether designing art, writing, developing a permanent structure, offering a program or hosting a walk of the labyrinth, the magic is in how a creation finds a beginning point, edits and meanders in the many turns and finds a place for common interest before it is reflected, tested and completes itself. The mystery is lessened in the system of approach and yet will not reveal results until it is magically realized.  

 


Daily Insights : On this 289th day…
Walk with what is unknown to realize what needs to be known and what can remain a mystery.

Appreciations of Celebrations

Day 151: May 31
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Education
In The Month of: Celebration

Remembering a fond labyrinthAs we close this merrier month of May in celebration with new realizations and old appreciations, we are uplifted in the capacity we have as humans to look for the path that provides the light. It is our hope this year to provide an honest way to experience the greater abilities of ourselves that can be surprisingly simple and true. In walking this path we can embrace the world changes with our changes in some new ways that help us to evolve as citizens of the world walking a path that is unique to each of us and common to all.

Each day in May, as each day in 2018 a new posting has been provided with illustrations to explore, evolve and energize the subtlety of how celebration provides us a path of possibility for our walk on the labyrinth and the steps we take in our everyday occurrences.  This month we’ve celebrated beginnings, festivals, World Labyrinth Day,  Mother’s, birthdays and more reminding us that one day of celebration commemorates a year of effort. On this last day of May, we also celebrate those we memorialize who stood for the country and served in its defense. Today marks a great celebration of service and whether you are of this great nation or another, walking together as one nation and one world is a fitting way to close our month with great realization of great appreciations.

On the first day… we walk in and on the last we walk out to a new beginning. In appreciation for this opportunity of sharing the celebrations of May!

 

On this 151st day…
Reflect on your month’s education of celebration and how your last walk of the month reflects the appreciations of your realizations.

 


The Month of Celebration, Appreciation and Realization

May’s Focus: Celebration

Life is a celebration to explore in the next 31 days. With the idea of walking the labyrinth and its tri-focus on releasing, receiving and reflecting, let’s shift the perspective to one that walks in with appreciation, finds the honest realization from each day and walks out in celebration.  Observe what 31 days of this focus might reflect and how it elevates our life condition.

Four focus points to expand your celebration of this month’s experience:

  1. Share your ideas, in your personal experiences, how you share the labyrinth with others, art, design or method of construction or in other ways that it may be utilized. Let others know about this daily experience and opportunity by sharing it. Find us on this blog and on the Labyrinth Societies Facebook page
  2. Join our Mid Month Dialogues on May 15th at 2pm CST for a lively look at what you have created and will create in the idea of celebration. This month’s theme was a direct result of our last month’s Mid Month Dialogue!
  3. Participate in the daily opportunity of this educational focus of  your personal journey, how you lead, teach or share with others, and what you create for contribution or purpose with this theme.
  4. Remember that our theme is about finding our greater capacities, abilities and true realities in being honest with our potential. We focus on what we can do as it is inherently more useful and productive.

Notes of Appreciation

Day 132: May 12
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Education
In The Month of: Celebration

Musical path of the labyrinthInspired by music today and celebrating the song of our soul. What makes us move, change attitude and appreciate our surroundings more than a tune that is timeless. Music has a way of speaking to our heart and can interrupt the path we may have been traveling that wasn’t as productive. With music we move differently, step livelier and our path has a partner that speaks to something inside that reminds us that everything is ok.

This design came about in the care of my mother who loves to sing and appreciates music. In those times when she isn’t moving so well or seems to forget, turning on a little music makes all the difference. Drawing out a few notes I was reminded of the music within the labyrinth and its tonal coordinates. Beginning with one note is like beginning with one step;  soon the rest seems to follow in an effortless way. This effortless is a simple example of our honest abilities being used without much consideration when we are in tuned to something we appreciate.

On this 132nd day…
Celebrate the music in your soul steps today, what tune is playing?

Sacred Focus

Day 128: May 8
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Education
In The Month of: Celebration

New England Wooded Labyrinth Sharing from Karen S of New England, Certified Labyrinth Walk Facilitator:

The labyrinth keeps me centered, and at the center, I usually complete my daily Reiki practice. Even before I began working with Reiki energy, I have been drawn to completing rituals or meditations that honor the elements and/or the kingdoms of the natural world at the center.

I can feel the peaceful, accepting spirit of the space surround me as I complete those rituals. As I return to the outside world, I usually carry with me some insight about my life and the path I am meant to walk.

Each new day deserves appreciation for what it is, and that my time in the spaces I hold as sacred is finite, so I intentionally bring my full focus to the time I am spending there. When I walk with others, I can see the spark of the divine in them and feel the power of our shared presence. The power of shared labyrinth walks holds such potential for healing and I am glad that The Global Healing Response was instituted for this purpose. A celebration of the sacred walk.

On this 128th day…
Celebrate your sacred moments within and observe what it brings out today.
