The Other Half

Day 22

January 22, 2019

Month of Beginnings
Quarter of Consciousness
Let’s Walk the World, a focus of contribution

  1. For Your Walk:
    Relate an experience
  2. For Your Experience: 
    Observe your experience
  3. Share:   Share your message
    When we collectively offer the ways to begin, someone sees a new idea, thought or experience to enjoy. Today, share images, art, ideas, designs, tips, facilitations, building strategies, ideas from your book, poems, teachings, etc.

Today’s Experience:

Image of the labyrinth and the phases of the moonYesterday began a transition into the natural progressive change of the moon’s phases in its minute to directly face the sun, creating a half point in its money transitioning. As we begin our descent from the full moon today and our ascent into the last quarter phase of the moons revolving cycle, the diminishing of the shadow is a reflective walk of consideration. it reminds us of the work we put into something and the point of which it is realized.

Somewhere in our second phase of realization a walk of the labyrinth today looked at the seeds sown in a number of different projects, ideas and efforts that began earlier in the month. Indeed it is time to shift the type of effort and prepare for the harvest. It is a reminder of the different amounts of vital energy needed at different intervals in the lifespan of an effort. In this final phase of the moon and this walk today, each is reflective of that productive energy.

A Climate of Control

Day 363  December 29
In The Year of Honest Living
In The Quarter of: Contribution
In The Month of: Honest Gifts

Segment Five: Skills
Days 359-364

Choices of Control

Image of Star Labyrinth for Segment 5 of Skills.We may think that we are required to get a handle on ourselves or a situation that seems to be out of control, yet for experiences that seem to stray or stretch the borders of our normal routines, those issues that make waves or avoid are clear messages that something if off in our status quo. When we clamp down on control or step away, we can often miss an important message. 

Whether it is a group we might be working with on the labyrinth or purely for ourselves, the labyrinth is a reasonable way to find a path that works and offers us a return to our normal state. It doesn’t dismiss our imbalance, it honestly walks with it and in the steps, turns and spiral of our direction, we lessen the immediate impact and begin to reveal a clarity that is more effective. 

The labyrinth can become a tool of self regulation for any who choose to use it as a temperature of our internal climate or the combined energy of a group. With activity that moves us, even designing with it can offer us perspective that adapts our ability to deal with the constant element of change. It is more often a skill that develops with practice and time offering us a more grounded reality.

The idea of grounding is a relevant theme that appeared each month as a goal of the walk and also a practice of it in daily application. Self regulating to develop as a skill in a 365 day way, this year of experiences would increase.


Daily Insights of this 363rd day…
Observe the ways in which you easily self regulate and where more challenge is present. What gifts and abilities have made this easier this year?


December’s Focus

Image of the December 2018 Banner

Refresh, Renewal and Redesigns of Your Year

31 daily walks. ideas, topics and considerations for personal appreciation to professional sharing will be focused in this month utilizing six five-star labyrinths and a summary day to encompass what the magnitude of what has been discovered this year and bring it forward as gifts realized in the ways we gave to ourselves and others and received for ourselves and others. Following the five pointed star labyrinth this month in five points:

  1. Follow along Daily or as often as you can
  2. Consider what you have created or developed this year in regard to honest abilities
  3. Reflect on the five day segment focuses throughout the month with those abilities
  4. Review, journal, create or develop your own reflection in a daily experience
  5. Share your experience and add to the Daily Wisdom of the 365 Experience

Review the Gifts in Five Day Segments:

    • Giving to ourselves as well as what we give to others is a reminder of what we do possess in gifts, capacity, ability, skills, and talent that bring us fulfillment. The first five days will focus on what has been developed in this year and what it gave.
    • Inspiration in the inner motivation we possess, the focus of looking back at our discoveries to notice over the next five days about what inspired our capabilities into actionable realizations will be a great topic to select meaningful moments this year.
    • Fortitude in the courage, resilience and mettle that have risen this year when in consideration of the ways we understand, use, and apply the labyrinth and relate it to ourselves either personally or professionally, the next five days will be reflective.
    • Talent is something everyone possesses, discovering natural gifts using the labyrinth in a variety of ways reveals depth of talent to reconsider and perhaps discover something new over the following five days.
    • Skill is learned, developed, and practiced through desire and the more we can apply it in various ways, the more we comprehend with new levels of learning. The last five days will be an opportunity to renew, remember and redesign skills.

Consider the weekly and daily focus presented this month in review and rediscover through the many ways you have used or ideas below that you can use the labyrinth with:

• Personal Walk
• Group Walk, Program, Workshop, Education, etc.
• Designs, Artwork, illustrations, photos of labyrinth you walked, etc.
• Building concepts, tips, techniques, design ideas, etc.
• Personal Development, Guidance, Growth orientation, etc
• Writing, poetry, creations, installations, etc.
• Learn something new about yourself, others or the labyrinth this month.

Vortex

Day 286  October 13
In The Year of Honest Living
In The Quarter of: Contribution
In The Month of: Message, Metaphor and Magic

Image of the center of a pine cone labyrinth with Vortex Metaphor
Topic: Vortex

A Centering for Journey from a Journey to Centering


The  Message:

Where a vortex is a whirling of mass, it historically refers to water, though more modern adaptations open the reference to energy of mass moving in a spiraling nature. Recent category five hurricane Michael, is a vortex and so it can come across as a negative whirl, though it is simply a whirling spiral that can bring all things to a point. As we walk through the labyrinth we stir up much in our mass movement on a mass that has been moved many times before and in this we bring much into a vortex. Some see it as just that central point, where others see it as a new beginning and a conduit to another realm. If we move from one conscious mind about something to another, we move to a new realm of reference. It can be as deep as we wish to move it into the Earth, heaven, otherworld or merely deeper aspects of allowed entry into ourselves.

The Magic: 

Walking aware of the energy we are and what is created in our movement, is a precise reckoning of detail in our actions on the labyrinth. Imagining them in slow motion brings to mind the minute occurrences not seen by the visual ability. If we are able to sense it, feeling it might be a first experience of attuning awareness, and slowing motion more acutely in time. The ability to engage in this manner helps us to appreciate the present radius of more tangible results while realizing the greater abilities that appear magical in the moment.

 

 


Daily Insights : On this 286th day…
Move your mass, aware of the vortex that stirs into action from start to finish in your walk of this day.

Relative Einstein

Day 73: March 14
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Awareness
In The Month of: Discover

When we take ourselves to the labyrinth we are creating a unique relative experience. Where the labyrinth as a container might equal the mass in the structure and space of the experience, we also bring light energy in our movement.  When we multiply and expand our ideas, dreams, questions or thoughts, it expands our relative experience of light energy. In this way we always get out of the experience what we put into it. Today is Einstein’s birthday and as the Spiral of Theodorus is often called Einstein’s spiral due to his expansion of appreciating equalization. There are many formulas and theorems that have risen out of the growth of this moving plane curve we know as the spiral, many of which Einstein added solutions to, though he is one man among many that have contributed to our knowledge and wisdom through the curvature of the spiral’s equations.

Today celebrate your own genius abilities, which is also the nature of our year long program of living honestly. When we are in the celebration of possibilities, we are in the realm of our honestly. As Einstein was essentially a man of potential and possibility, he was also an advocate of rising what will educate and help us to understand to really know peace.  Happy Birthday Einstein!

A suggestion to walk with:

On this 73rd day…
In your capacity for peace and honesty, what grows in your light energy of imagination as you walk with possibility in mind?

————————————————————————————–

March’s Focus

As it is now the third month of the year and our last month of growing awareness before we delve into the ways of education, allow this month be one that creates both the light hearted discovery and profound realization. How can you create more awareness with the labyrinth personally or in the ways you share with others? Where do you notice a spiral effect that takes you to the point or away from it? Be on the lookout for the spiraling nature this month.

  1. Realize
    In the 31 Days this month offers, become aware of the daily realizations that you create and discover. Walking daily creates compound interest in what you look forward to and discover each day. Let March become your month of expanded capacity as you walk to make each day and adventure in exploration of what more you can explore. Seek to spiral into new and inspiring realization and whether it is rich and profound or light hearted and amusing… be open, walk with intention and you are bound to come away larger.

2. Surprise
One can realize and find much in the depth of understanding that awareness offers us, though when we look forward to realization of that depth and awareness, it can inspire new ways of appreciation and discovery in both our  process and capabilities as we are constantly growing, no matter what age. Invite the element of  surprise into what you realize as it can lift what you discover into seeing a bit more than before.  Notice the spiral effect of how you move from realize to surprise and make discovery more significant and true.

Favorites

Day 37: February 6
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Awareness
In The Month of: Love

designs by The Amused Muse 2018

Inspired by my son who is my favorite and only son, the idea of favorites became the focus of the walk on this day. Why are some things favorites and some things not? What does it say about what is personally valued? In all honesty, how does something become a favorite? Does it create ease, appease or does it please?  In what ways might we be more honest with favorites and in what ways are we more honest with out them?

Walking on the savored and favored simple things came up at first, a favorite color, favorite foods, favorite places and then a realization that a smile was forming in thinking about those things that had become favorites. Memories and experiences along with preference and choice with what aligned became a way to define personality. Attitude, imagination, creativity and inspiration were all a part of the walk in considering the favorites that showed up and what made them favorites. Favorites have a ring of truth in them as an honest choice about what we like.

Considering the other side on the walk of return became a perspective of dislike, need and attachment. At the walk’s completion the findings returned the idea that there isn’t any need for favorites, no real attachment and when what is not favored is not wrong, acceptance is present. Favorites, without dependence,  seem to have of stating our honest opinions and uplifting attitudes. Where going along with the crowd can be an easier non confronting choice, what we favor will out our truth if we are ever in denial of it.

In a walk of favorites and unfavorites an interesting conversation opens the door to awareness and deciphers a little bit more of ourselves in a way that can be uplifting, decisive and appreciative.

—————————————————————————————

A suggestion to walk with:

On this sixth day…
Walk with your favorites and walk without them. Discover what opens your honest capacities.

————————————————————————————–


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!

Opportunity Invited

TLS 365 Experience #267
November 22, 2017

Laying out the canvas labyrinth for a walk later on in the afternoon, I set up the room and then went about finishing tasks. Sitting in an adjacent room working, small light hearted could be heard and as the sound escalated and endured, it piqued curiosity, so I went to investigate and nearing, the sound of children playing were coming from the room with the labyrinth. Not wishing to disturb, I peeked an eye around the corner and found three young children skipping about and playing on the labyrinth. Observing from a distance it brought a smile to see then run around and stir up the energy.

Walking back to the work at hand, the thought occurred, when you lay out a labyrinth, you invite all kinds of opportunity.

Creating Labyrinth Energy

TLS 365 Experience #98
June 6, 2017

As the world is in constant change and flow, I find the labyrinth a place to accept the flow of my energy as an individual on it, though the labyrinth structure remains the same. It represents the steady and true to our understanding as it sits waiting for use and performs with the same parameters of stillness each time. I am one factor that creates change. The labyrinth doesn’t really change, I do.

The others who walk it do the same, bringing their energy to the experience and maybe leaving something behind.  It makes me consider who walked before me and who walks after as a result.

As everything that is used, shows its wear, the labyrinth change is subtle. The stones may move or roll away, the design may shift, paint can fade and marks appear on its surface. It holds a place for all of us and contains the energy of what we have infused it with. A labyrinth that looks old or care worn, is a labyrinth that has much to tell us.
