Emotions Evolving

image for Segment 4 by TheAmusedMuse.comThe other side of the mind, that is less understood and of intense desire to understand, is the process of emotion. It conducts our responses, reactions and the way we relate to everything. Ideas like Emotional Intelligence, seek to manage and control our emotion and don’t really allow us to know the fuller capacity of what we might be able to do when we look at emotion from the perspective of what they offer and how they can improve the quality of life. 

Having explored the genius principle within our capacity, emotion might be better understood with improved education as to what it is, rather than what it is not. It often gets mixed with the concept of feeling, though it is the mindset that directs the vibrational responses. As five of our six emotions are labeled to perceive problematic concerns, only one identifies what is working. We might better understand that its time to re-relate to how we comprehend an education of what emotions offer us. 

The labyrinth has a wonderful motion effect on our emotion. When we move, we are no longer in the same place as the problem, nor are we stuck in conditional thinking and response. A walk on the labyrinth was proven more effective than a long walk or prayerful sitting by Brown University. That’s because we move the mind in the weaving pattern and spiraling function. We relax response.

The week of appreciation in November literally walked us into and idea and moved us to a better one in the outcome.

Daily Insights of this 354th day…
Consider re-relating in your walk of today from beginning to end. Observe the differences and re-relate in your world a little more afterwards.

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

Day 289  October 16
In The Year of Honest Living
In The Quarter of: Contribution
In The Month of: Message, Metaphor and Magic

Image of golden labyrinth design with Metaphor of Energy by the Amused Muse 2018

Topic: Energy

Moving energy with energy for energy

The  Message:

Always in existence, energy cannot be created or destroyed, it can be stored however as potential energy. The movement of energy is Kinetic and where it changes from one form to another including gravitational, nuclear, electric, chemical, elastic, atomic, mechanical and sound, changing from one form to another is motion and Kinetic. As everyone moves, whether it is through thought, brain activity or bodily function, kinetic energy is an essential function. When we walk, we identify ourselves uniquely as studies show that our gait is independent of all others and can be used as a source of personal identification. Technology has even jumped on this idea to use it as a way to authenticate ourselves. This makes for an interesting walk on the labyrinth, knowing we move and transmute energy, while we uniquely identify ourselves in the walk, with the walk and as the walk, differently than any other in the world.

The Magic: 

A walk on the labyrinth allows us to feel, reveal and heal the energy to a more purposeful form and function. It occurs in the simple energy field of our movement on an energy field to produce a third frequency of energy. Like rubbing sticks together to create a flame appears magical, it is simple science, yet the effect is energetic magic, making something appear from an apparent nothing.


Daily Insights : On this 288th day…
Observe your Kinetic energy of movement and as you walk in step with it, open to the energy found moving in the labyrinth, and as you walk in step with it, realize the third frequency of energy present.

Hive Celebrations

Day 131: May 11
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Education
In The Month of: Celebration

A honeycomb labyrinthThe beehive represents community and in communities there are parts that come together to make up the whole. Bees work together to create a harvest and like all communities that pull together there are times of celebration to commemorate special occasions, honor customs or provide ritual.  Bees are essential for our survival because they pollinate up to 1/3 of the world’s food supply, that’s typically one meal a day.  In their small way, the humble bumble bee and the multitude of varieties that make up the world’s bee population exist and produce simply because it is a function of community. It sends an important message about the small steps we take each day in pursuit of a purpose, goal or dream.

Finding six nests in the low hanging rafters that border the side of the house a year ago, I waited till the season had passed before removing them and offering them to a local beekeeper. Today, they are back perhaps to remind of the importance of our role in community. By removing select honeycombed pockets, the gooey wonders of a walk with honey brings a sweet celebration of the steps in this day.


On this 131st day…
Consider your contributions to the many communities you belong to today in your walk and how significant your participation is.


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.

Day 68: March 9
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Awareness
In The Month of: Discover

Finding the day busier than expected, time for reflection moved later and later into the day. Finally, a chance to stop and refresh presented itself and while waiting in between, the colorful straws on the shelf  in a glass cylinder made for a quick design with fun in mind. While many intense moments can be wonderful in the education and application of a meaningful experience, the moments to step away and rejuvenate body and mind can be profound in importance and production.  Even with wonderful intensity, moving away from the magnetizing spiral of consumption benefits more with a new perspective. As the focus this month moves us inward with a concentration of the motion and matter of the spiral; work, rest and play are a triad of balance in what we can get caught up in.

Designing, and tracing this labyrinth of triangular function while taking time out, the three important focal points of the day resurfaced in this design. Something as simple as bending straws became a pleasurable new direction of intention and non intention.  A triad seemed to want to express itself in the straws and as it did, it reinforced these three concepts with each fold and turn.  By the time I had reached my  last straw, what brought the three together became  purposefully clear and somewhat amusing in the minimal ease that occurred to provide this insight for the moment and for the larger project I had walked away from.

Not all spirals are circular and not all intensities need be difficult, hard or troublesome. This was intensely brilliant and in playing with straws, a number of messages arrived in a way more expansive processes might have missed. It evidences my belief in the value of play over and over again in its genius method of finding what is truly important. Playing with the labyrinth in walk, process or design seems to provide endless creativity that brings all points together. Today, there was a  triangulated triumph.


On this 68th day…
Today triangulate what is important and discover  three main points of focus and as you move in, center and move out, find a triad of truth in what it opens.


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.

Freedom’s Efficiency

Day 17: January 17
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Awareness
In The Month of: Definition

With what I have defined so far, honesty is opening more doors and providing more opportunities. It isn’t that we aren’t good and right people, it is however a way to be true to what we are capable of and realize more of what we are not perceptive of currently. In life, we are always growing in one direction or another and it reasons that we will be perpetual students learning more of this vast world and of the greater depths in every meaning we acknowledge.

Walking in stride with this, we can feel quite ignorant, even with an expansive career or extensive studies and experiences. It is a happy ignorance that can humble and grant an audience with our potential. It is also with practice and consistency that we open doors. Honesty just keeps us moving more freely and takes away the constraints of conditioning.

The modest pewter finger labyrinth’s tiny paths created a greater call for attention in today’s walk. In the Dancing Lady Design of this Baltic Wheel Labyrinth, it’s measurement of three inches in diameter is pocketable for easy availability. With two openings, it also gives a choice in the walk and so offers a simple efficiency of a quick walk most everywhere.

Where I used to believe the effective walk was done with the physical body on a permanent structure, with this kind of portability, the small efficiency wins out. Its small power is in its handiness and that makes for a more frequent use, practice and culpability of honest intentions being met. Each labyrinth and type has their place and function, though when it comes to creating an understanding or a promise with ourselves, it is the practice that educates.

A suggestion to walk with:

What becomes more efficient with honesty today?

TLS 365 Experience 2018: The Year of Living Honestly
Whether it’s a daily walk, teaching others, sharing an experience, expressions of art, building or design, we explore the questions of what brings us to honesty in our use of the labyrinth. 

In a world of emerging truth, the labyrinth is a great experience to discover more of what is right and true about ourselves and humanity. Join us in sharing the honest moments it reveals.

Daily unfolding the process:
So far we have a daily blog and an unscheduled mid month podcast to explore the monthly focus. Share this week at:
