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

Simple Joys

Day 123: May 3
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Education
In The Month of: Celebration

The labyrinth of friends walking togetherToday is a simple practice of walking into the labyrinth noting the things each of us can appreciate, no matter the size or greatness. Upon the realization of the feeling and amount of gratitude in the appreciation, a celebrated feeling can arise.

Meeting a friend and walking together today provided many appreciations including, the ease of relating to another with common interest,  having a nearby labyrinth to walk, the conversation after the walk, knowing this focus of celebration, enjoying the warmth of the day was yet another and in taking the steps into the labyrinth with these thoughts and more in mind, what arose was a greater realization of appreciation. Such a simple equation to bring cause for daily celebration.

The more that build this simple equation for walking in celebration this month, the more there are in the focus of celebration. A simple  change that can grow and benefit everyone.

On this 123rd day…
Celebrate your observations, participations and activating steps that bring appreciation and realization to simple celebrations.


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.

Heart Designs

Day 53: February 22
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Awareness
In The Month of: Love


It is a blessing and a joy to bring the heart into focus in this walk of possibility we are creating daily in the 365 Experience. Leading with the heart this month has opened up numerous activities, valuable insights and appreciable gratitude in what can be accomplished in the name of simple honesty. When its not complicated, its value is immense and helps us to realize that potential is an essence of opportunity we can tap into and expand in any moment.

Today with a group of women, the conversation heart took on a new dimension of heart in the pathways of our connection and collaboration. Spreading out the Conversation Hearts, each designed and developed their own independent conversation of what their heart spoke in all honesty. The conversations that came in discussion were wonderfully rich and revealing.  Of the three I created, this is the one that I enjoyed the most.

—————————————————————————————

A suggestion to walk with:

On this 53rd day…
Take steps into your heart, stop often, listen intently and continue as your heart speaks.

————————————————————————————–


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.

The Last Walk

TLS 365 Experience #306
December 31, 2017

When my children were young, we used to laugh about the last time we would be experiencing things on the last day of the year. It would begin with…”this is the last time I will…” and then we would break up in giggles. This went on all day long and it never ceased to be funny. It gave me an idea of how to lighten the year’s review with the last opportunities on the walk to be hosted on New Year’s Eve.

Explaining the concept of lasts to our participants in the candlelight walk, We walked the 12 paths with a 12 month review appreciating having had the experiences and gratitude for this last moment of thanks.  People lit their candles from others support resembling that which was present in support for the year. Each left something of the year in the center to leave behind and an engaged stone with a message to take into the new year. It was a walk full of good emotion and a few tears.  In the center we brought our candles together for a beautiful lighting and light hearted blessing for world peace, love and joy.

Wishing all of our 365 Experience Enthusiasts a year of prosperity in health, wealth and blissful new beginnings.

The Gift

TLS 365 Experience #302
December 27, 2017

gift of a finger labyrinthThere is a moment of utter delight when opening a gift that was carefully selected and offered with the love. This holiday I received just that gift and I think just watching the opening of it was quite of love for the recipient.

A recent injury sidelined me from daily walks on the labyrinth and while it gave me plenty of opportunity to draw, create and follow the finger paths, at this point in my journey of the labyrinth, I hadn’t owned a finger labyrinth that had any dimension. Opening this gift and discovering the fine marble design was truly a gift of love as it came from my husband and kids who didn’t seem to have much interest in it.

I couldn’t help but experience the first finger walk out loud expressing gratitude in each path for each member and as I turned sharing how each had made me feel. Somehow I filled each path with all that I felt and in reflection shared how this gift had brought the love of family, the joy of delight and the peace of goodwill forth.

Paths of Great and Full

TLS 365 Experience #238
October 24, 2017

I began this walk grateful with the feeling and understanding of gratitude itself. As I turned to walk another pathway I shifted to the gratitude I felt in walking, doing, thinking and being as a person. On the next turn I extended the feeling of gratitude to my family for their contributions to me and the opportunity to give to them. Beyond that the thankfulness poured out to my friends that I had chosen in life and how we served each other in what we became in knowing and being together.

Turning again, those I work with and associate as aquaintences became my focus and how each was a helpful part of the whole.I noted with appreciative awareness how I fit into it and grew in knowing them and they in knowing me. In another shift of direction, those I interacted with on a passing level in my community became a curious as well as thankful gesture. While they are often fleeting moments of exchange, each passes into my life and I into theirs as if to make a moments impression for known and unknow reasons at the time.

Circling to the next path, gratitude lifts to include those in my country who are engaging for the good of our nation and those just trying to understand. Like me, each has a value in what we offer and in this moment I am grateful for this. Finally as I turn onto the last path of this labyrinth a heightened sense of gratitude for those I will never know, breathing out what I breath in and for myself as an unknown in the greater world, I am thankful for our existence and minute traces of movement that matter.

Walking into the center I have become the gratitude in my being and feel its vibration as if speaking clearly to the world. It provides a sense of grace in the steps that follow back home.

Affirming and Exercising

TLS 365 Experience #180
Aug. 27, 2017

Illinois Labyirnth

 

When life is smoothly sailing along, the walk on the labyrinth is an exercise of gratitude and a reminder of the affirmations and actions that support efforts that create appreciable moments.

When life isn’t, the labyrinth provides a sanctuary for discovery.

It is through the different directions that appreciation, curiosity or relief grows and the steps taken are the catalyst to provide it.

A Path of Metaphor

TLS 365 Experience #108
June 16, 2017

Metaphors become simple realizations on the labyrinth.

The walk of the labyrinth offers awareness with a  glimpse of perspective, and as we continue on each step has a way of bearing proof and an easier acceptance. We can’t really hide from ourselves on the labyrinth, our truth has a way of showing up. In the metaphor, however the truth becomes a gentle suggestion and the path provides time and reinforced direction to comprehend and appreciate.

Where people aren’t always able to tell us the truth, the labyrinth has the metaphor that helps us to be grateful for it.

Commitment’s Message

TLS 365 Experience #76
May 15, 2017

I love to walk the labyrinth and have made it might daily practice.

Over the years there have been times when I wondered why I had made such a commitment and what it was truly offering me on a daily basis. These would be normal questioning of anyone who makes a commitment to a daily practice, as I have many of them.

What I have noticed is that each practice and commitment walks with me through the living of my life. They make me consider, remind me of what is important and bring me into the moment. The more I walk in this way, the more I realize the moment is not something to come to, rather it is already present and the pause is the moment for gratitude. In the labyrinth, it might be the moment of the center or maybe the beginning or ending.

An everyday walk of the labyrinth then becomes an everyday expression of gratitude.
