Welcome Love

Day 32: February 1
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Awareness
In The Month of: Love

Welcome to our new month of February!
Traditionally known as the month of Love, February also gives us expediency as it is our shortest month. Make the most of it by realizing the greater awareness of honesty that is found when we love.

In The Year of Living Honestly  awareness is our focus for the quarter and now that we have defined how we can realize it to expand our abilities, lets enjoy discovering more in what we love, how we love and realize more of where we love, why we love and more.   The nature of honesty is found in the truth of a walk on the labyrinth and heightened  this month in the focus of love we can’t help but realize more of our capabilities… and with feeling!

Remember in this year long focus of honesty, it is not about the right or wrong nature that brings us to blaming and shaming, rather we bypass this unproductive conditional method and focus on what we become in the capable nature of exercising it. Pointing ourselves in this direction we skip what is unnecessary and arrive at better answers, more productivity and realize much more in effectivity. Love is a wonderful gauge to bring us to our capacity and beyond.

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!

A suggestion to walk with:

On this first day…
Walk as you might when newly in love with something.

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.

Giving Walks

TLS 365 Experience #279
December 4, 2017

This is the time of year where giving is part of the season. There are many without in this season and a good time to produce a labyrinth walk around the giving to those with less. Over the years our community group has produced labyrinth walks of food to fill the donation pantry for the homeless, clothing to bring in anything from socks to sweaters, outerwear walks such as overcoats, gloves, hats and scarves too. We have brought in blankets and toiletry items by putting out bags that can be filled. We are considering a cookie walk to donate to a local ministry too.

As people come to walk, they leave their items on the labyrinth and we walk with the items in mind offering prayer, blessings and song. All the good will of bringing and preparing the goods with love and compassion make the giving even more special.

Grandma’s Walk

TLS 365 Experience #107
June 15, 2017

Yellow Rose Labyrinth for Grandma's 99th BirthdayToday is Grandma’s birthday.

She would have been 99 years old and while she wouldn’t have liked the old part, the 99 years would have impressed her.

I walked on this day with Grandma, mindful of yellow roses and a sweet feeling that she seemed to share without even knowing it. At first I felt alone, though soon knew she was there walking along side me, smiling. She holds my hand and my heart and while I seem to wonder about her and miss her at other times, today I know today she is my heart and mind.

I just wanted to walk and honor what she meant to me and somehow what was heavy on my heart infused unexpected emotion in the winding of the paths.  With Grandma in mind, the sudden comfort and outpouring of love was like a blanket that held me in the moment. Somehow it came and passed quickly, and curiously helped me see the next step in many ways.

I wanted to walk for her, and she ended up walking for me. Isn’t that just like a Grandma!  I think when we remember, honor and love, loved ones are always with us to give something and open to receive what we offer.

A Mother’s Walk

TLS 365 Experience #75
May 14, 2017

labyrinth women in the forestI walk the labyrinth today in honor of Mother’s as a Mother.

I was once a daughter who walked because of my mother and her mother and her’s. I walk because of the mothers before and the greater motherhood that exists in the world and I ground in my walk because of the greatest mother that supports every step I make, Gaia… our Mother Earth.

Today is a walk of love, appreciation and great encouragement for some and for others there is dillusion, abandonment or grief, though it can still be a walk of love and appreciation. The encouragement can be for the person you are, the choices you make and what you wish to offer as you live and walk upon our greatest Mother.

Celebrate our great Mother Earth and your life and the person you are who walks upon it with a life time of opportunity in every stride.

Happy Mother’s Day!

Inspire Luck

TLS 365 Experience #17
March 17, 2017

triple spiral labyrinth

 

The Lure of the Labyrinth is found in the change it offers us, the Lore of the Labyrinth is found in the choices it represents, and the love of the labyrinth is found in the creativity it encourages.

The triple spiral of this labyrinth design gives us a trio of treats on this auspicious day of Irish Heritage, and celebrates the three leaves of clover to champion your choices, cheer your changes and celebrate your creativity with a walk of inspired fortune and luck at what lies ahead on the path of life..

Where three leaves of a clover symbolize faith, hope and love… the fourth leaf is all about how we cultivate luck, walk and let the fourth leaf appear!

The Heart of February

2015 Labyrinth HeartFebruary to me always has the month of the heart in it, not as if any other month does not, though I think those ingrained years of Valentines has imprinted that this month indeed has a deeper focus on the heart. This is probably true with all who celebrate this one day of the year. I guess that is because love is so much a part of who we are. In simple thought, we all just want to love and we all want to be loved.

We tend to spend our lifetime attempting to discover the purpose of our life knowing the answer is always love. It seems that the question is always how we will offer and receive that love. It strikes me that this tool that lends itself to speak our truth answers that very question each time we give our focus to it. In the 365 Club, I am curious as to we who commit to making daily focus, do this?
