A Week of Blessings

Day 334  November 30
In The Year of Honest Living
In The Quarter of: Contribution
In The Month of: Grateful Pathways

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

Appreciations of Celebrations

Day 151: May 31
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Education
In The Month of: Celebration

Remembering a fond labyrinthAs we close this merrier month of May in celebration with new realizations and old appreciations, we are uplifted in the capacity we have as humans to look for the path that provides the light. It is our hope this year to provide an honest way to experience the greater abilities of ourselves that can be surprisingly simple and true. In walking this path we can embrace the world changes with our changes in some new ways that help us to evolve as citizens of the world walking a path that is unique to each of us and common to all.

Each day in May, as each day in 2018 a new posting has been provided with illustrations to explore, evolve and energize the subtlety of how celebration provides us a path of possibility for our walk on the labyrinth and the steps we take in our everyday occurrences.  This month we’ve celebrated beginnings, festivals, World Labyrinth Day,  Mother’s, birthdays and more reminding us that one day of celebration commemorates a year of effort. On this last day of May, we also celebrate those we memorialize who stood for the country and served in its defense. Today marks a great celebration of service and whether you are of this great nation or another, walking together as one nation and one world is a fitting way to close our month with great realization of great appreciations.

On the first day… we walk in and on the last we walk out to a new beginning. In appreciation for this opportunity of sharing the celebrations of May!

 

On this 151st day…
Reflect on your month’s education of celebration and how your last walk of the month reflects the appreciations of your realizations.

 


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.

Shaping your Path

Day 141: May 21
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Education
In The Month of: Celebration

Three shapes of one pathIn a group of women yesterday, the dialogue following the walk included many of the trials and lessons that individuals were currently in process with. There was a sense of needing to fix the situation, as if the place they were in had no value. Between the over analysis and the curious expectancy of the group, I gave each a piece of paper and asked them to draw a shape that represented their circumstance and then asked them to walk again taking in consideration the shape they had chosen. After the walk, interesting dialogue came about in the way of what was balanced, what cycled and found its end a new beginning and taking notice of different angles and perspectives. Focusing on the shapes seemed to bring out the characteristics of their situation and an interesting matching characteristic of the shapes. This awareness provided an opportunity to see differently and discover that the blessing of the problem with a greater focus on solution.

For a change of perspective to what works, what’s good and what is right; celebrating the walk with acceptance of the shape you are in can make a difference in your steps and in your outcome. This design came to mind afterwards illustrating that point and remind us in our walk that moving through what we think is a problem can often show us the answer. The shapes are different colors to highlight their features and in walking through, it might at first seem confusing to step over into another shape or color, though staying on the one path will take you past confusion and into clarity.

On this 141st day…
Choose a shape to go along with a question and discover what shape you are in by following your path to conclusion and focusing on the characteristics of what you can appreciate.

Welcome May

Day 121: May 1
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Education
In The Month of: Celebration

Celebration confetti and balloons rising from the labyrinthIn this year of living honestly we look at the ways we can evolve our understanding of ourselves, our purpose with the labyrinth and our connection to others in the way we share it or comprehend larger meanings. We focus on quarterly concepts such as the awareness we’ve appreciated in the first and the concept of education for ourselves and the way we use the labyrinth with others in these three months. Our focus changes to add ways to appreciate that education differently and while we used the power of amusement to widen our focus, this month’s exploration focuses on the idea of celebration.

Life is a gift to celebrate daily. Life also offers us adversity and many of our former lessons have focused on overcoming and surviving that time for appreciating the celebrations becomes the thing we do for special occasions. Living the idea of celebration through appreciation and realization is an opportunity in the next 30 days to walk differently, share differently and care differently in the month of  May. Look forward to sharing innovations and creations, sharing in our mid month dialogues and taking steps to create a celebratory experience in this month.

Flip Flop Labyrinth

TLS 365 Experience #213
September 29, 2017

A three circuit  labyrinth made of flip flopsA random day to close out the summer with a group of teenagers doing what they like to do best, play! This is a replica of a quick and easy flip flop labyrinth. We walked with the idea of what summer has brought. Simple and effective teaching moments of lessons learned by those who walked and lived the summer in sandals.
