Seconds

Day 47: February 16
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Awareness
In The Month of: Love

The flip side of love takes our experience into the second half of the month where we can focus on increasing our first half of the month’s experience. Most think the flip side of something is the opposite, though here are focus is on what’s better and increased in beneficial ways. Always move at your own pace, though if you have looked at what you love and how you love it in the first half, the second half can provide experiential or introspective at how it is related to our own sense of honesty, freedom and elevations.  What we yield in greater capacity when we love bigger, deeper and farther expands what we can love more of in what we did not so readily before.

In the walk of this morning’s adventure, the predawn darkness gave way to sunrise and it occurred that this was a new beginning; a reminder that on this day on the other half of the month a newness arrives. The enjoyment of new creations, exercised development and new looks at love as elevated experiences from the first half, are what dawn in a way that applies some of those designs for different uses and reflections. Repurposing, like the Conversation Hearts left over from last night’s love walk can be used for the school I will be going to in a few days. A fun way to orchestrate an experience of communication and conversation with the hearts as well as a chance to create their own seed patterns to reinforce the value of communication with heart! May your second half bring the happy heart gladness.

A suggestion to walk with:

On this 47th day…
Walk on the wonder of the second half, second chance and value of your seconds.

 



February’s Focus

As it is the second month of the year, enjoy two opportunities… discovery and realization.

  1. Discover your Love capacity:
    This month’s 28 days will focus on how we are loving the moments we are creating. Learning to be “in love” with our focus, it expands who we are beyond the partnered relational aspects and into the focus of loving what we offer the world, who we are in community, relating at a higher level to everything and everyone; and most significantly,  elevating the relationship we have with ourselves. Prepare for a wonderful experience of exercising the power of love with the freedom of honesty to realize a greater look at possibilities and potential n a delightful way. Discover how capable you are!

2. Realize synchronous evidence:
Inspired by the variety of heart shaped labyrinths, this month capture your experiences with images of the heart. Be on the look out for where the synchronicity of the moments where your heart is in focus and then look around to see where you can find the shape of a heart in symbol. Your awareness will expand and you just might be surprised to find that when we look with an open heart, we can find it in reference near by. It does require a bit of imagination, though the findings are wonderfully worth it. Share all the heart shaped labyrinth images you find with images, links or comments and I will be happy to post the images and moments.
Care to Share and Share to Care!

Healthy Human Moments

Day 13: January 13
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Awareness
In The Month of: Definition

In the Calico Basin there is a double spiral labyrinth that is a curiosity for some and a haven for others. It is a refuge in nature laid out within the protection of the surrounding mountains and by those who seek its wisdom in intentional groups or hikers who happen upon it accidentally. In meeting an associate nearby, this was the early morning opportunity to make the most of the time available and recharge with the natural Earth rhythms. It is a place where nature is what is honest.

In walking in on the outer pathways, the nature of the double spiral directs us to skip every other path into the center and skip the paths we walked in on as we walk out. It always offers a path we haven’t yet taken and an opportunity to examine what we didn’t know before or move to a new depth of understanding than we had before. Such was the case in the walk of this day. I found myself corresponding with a sister later, which directly correlated the experience. Like landing in Sweden when you’ve prepared for a trip to Italy, embracing the change happens, though the honest moment of shock and realization is to be afforded and acknowledged.

The path we walk out on will be different in this labyrinth than the one we walked in on and by acknowledging the difference; we just might be better at appreciating the nuances that it provides. The healthy honest moment of adjustment isn’t always understood for its value or afforded us. It’s called being a human and when we understand and give ourselves the moment, we walk the path of life more whole.

A suggestion to walk with:

Appreciate your healthy honest human moments of transition today.

Curious Navigation

TLS 365 Experience #248
November 3, 2017

The steps are somewhat painful in the walk today. Each placement takes notice of what is emerging in disease and with keener awareness, Feeling into the pain of the moment to make connection as the broadening and expanding action of my foot as it steps first with heel and then unrolls to make contact using up the whole of each part of the foot.

Noticing with this kind of awareness, I breathe with more ease. With slow motion of the mind and moving more purposefully to acquaint my body from footstep to the gait in between,  I am aware of the juxtaposition of the hips and spine and the overall effect. I am carried from the pain into the listening of the motion that each step requires from the top of the head and its slight bend to the shoulders, evaluating the inertia. Finding slight adjustments for each impact, I walk out of the labyrinth a different person.

I discover I am more curious than furious and that may make all the difference in how I choose to navigate this new journey of life and labyrinth.

Change on the Path

TLS 365 Experience #227
October 13, 2017

In our classes on Prosperity and Abundance we thought to bring the community into an exchange idea, so for the month we invited our participants to walk the labyrinth everyday or as many days as they found possible. When they did they were to bring change in their pockets and based on ideas we were sharing, leave some change on the border of the labyrinth where the moment of realization occurred. Whatever they pulled from their pocket was to be left and the walk was to carry on.

As they circled around with the ideas, each time they gravitated to the new ideas being shared and could see the way they could incorporate it. At the moment of realization they were to notice if change was on the path or border where they stood, if so they could pick it up and take it with them, noticing what the total amount was to carry out their plan. Money was left out all month and there was always something on the path to resemble both the changes being made and the change they were concentrating on in a monetary sense.

By the end of the month this simple concept worked well in our ideas and goals and many realizations had become new thoughts and realities for many. We proved our point that change was always on our path and when we let go of what we didn’t require, others might be able to use it to inspire at different times and at different times, we might be those individuals either releasing or increasing.

Offerings of the Labyrinth

TLS 365 Experience #166
Aug. 13, 2017

I share the labyrinth with my classes offering them a chance to understand a different kind of meditation, a new way to examine deeper and more efficient breath and the opportunity to practice mindfulness.

Participants are often intrigued as to how the labyrinth can make the type of difference that it does make and I send them home with finger labyrinths and the world wide labyrinth locator information, so that they might find a permanent structure near where they live. I find there are such a variety of ways to utilize the idea of the labyrinth where learning and education are involved.

In self education, the labyrinth provides a vital reflection.

Common Sense

TLS 365 Experience #149
July 27, 2017

The ladies and I decided to enjoy the labyrinth after our tea service and as there was a delightful garden experience where one could meditate or meander to be reminded of the outdoors. We each walked independently feeling a warmth of the sun and a peaceful serenity as I noted each became quiet as if listening intently.

I noticed after the first turn a deepening aroma of roses that had such a wonderful effect. It seemed to lighten my mood and as I walked on, I found myself breathing different to catch that essence of rose as I walked.  As we each completed our walk, everyone felt more at ease and more mindful of breath. Each had remarked taking in the scent of floral, though what was truly interesting was that some smelled the Jasmine, another smelled the Gardenias and another appreciated the lilies.

While we all walked the same path, we each encountered a different aroma that was prevalent. What was different was the aroma and what was common was the scent, the deeper breath and the walk. It seemed a larger message for all of us, though we might take in things differently, we find we have more that we experience the same.
