Thanks, For a Full Week
Gratitude is huge… it is an essence and a quality that is seldom given its due, however when one spends time in its focus, one learns much about the capacity of human realization. Thanks is a mere expression and one part of what gratitude offers, though as you may have observed this week, if you played along with each day’s adventure and explorations of the path of thanks, expressing thanks can be done in many ways with many benefits for many to experience beneficially.
Today is a review walk of seven paths. In the six letters of thanks, let the center be your own expression of the combination of letters to give thanks for the weeks experience as you walk into the labyrinth. As you return in the walk, simply review your reflections of your reflections of the week to see where you stand with value for the simple expression of thanks.
Path 1 – Tell yourself of the path of thanks that you have thought up, left behind and design in this first path and reflect on how this thanks appeared this week.
Path 2 – Helping brings thanks. Walk in the thanks created in the way it helped honor, what you had in thanks, healthy responses, humility raised, heart filled, happiness lightened and honor in how thanks helped in the expression. Reflect on the ways you helped with expressions of thanks.
Path 3 – Asking and Answering with thanks on this path in memories of this week, how did it move you to your A Game as number one and at the center of thanks? Walk and reflect on this path of conversation.
Path 4 – Natural thanks occur as we leave the center of thanks and when we ascend to it and descend from it. Walk and observe how natural it becomes where thanks can be at the beginning of the end and reflect on the places you found it in between.
Path 5 – Keeping thanks in mind, how do we keep thanks and make thanks a connection we keep up, keep on and in keeping with our lives. Walk and reflect how you’ve kept thanks.
Path 6 – Saying thank you changes us, invites us and activates a vibration of gratitude. Walk with the expression of thanks and observe what has occurred in the sayings you make with it and how it has become a saying you embraced differently in reflection.
Center – Thanks for the center as you walk in, hold space and prepare to leave, consider what thanks you brought in from the paths before you and what you will leave with to reflect on in leaving the center of thanks. Reflect on the volume of thanks you’ve created so far.
Enjoy the thanks you have created in expression this week
on the path of gratitude.
** The design of this labyrinth was created to individualize the elements that make up our expression of thanks. By taking a whimsical walk through our words, each letter allows us to realize how everything is relative and integral to the meaning of the whole. Individual uniqueness has value, though when added to other unique values, we understand our thanks a little better. Designed by theamusedmuse.com
Daily Insights : On this 311th day…
Reflect on what you have accomplished with thanks this past week and what bounty of thanks has come to you and in what form it has come.
Week One Focus: THANKS
In discovering the elements of gratitude, thanks is an expression we use to communicate our sense of what we hold gratitude for. Explore the ways Thanks is communicated this week on the labyrinth in daily walks, group facilitation, program creation, offerings, artwork, illustration and design, building canvas or permanent designs, books written or poetry created. However you find thanks as the path, on the path or of the path you are on… how is it expressed?
- Personal: consider the ways of your own personal adventures and use.
- Associations: contemplate the ways of use with friends, family, and relationships or other acquaintances.
- Environs: realize the community uses, organizations, landscapes encountered.
- Global: imagine the ways that what you do reaches others in the world environs.
