Month of Beginnings
Quarter of Consciousness
Let’s Walk the World, a focus of contribution
- For Today’s Walk:
Where do you find places to begin, is it always at the traditional beginning?
- For Today’s Experience:
Explore the spaces in the places that are your beginnings.
- Share Today: Share your message
When we collectively offer the ways to begin, someone sees a new idea, thought or experience to enjoy. Today, share images, art, ideas, designs, tips, facilitations, building strategies, ideas from your book, poems, teachings, etc.
My favorite way to walk the labyrinth is barefoot, especially when the temperature remains above 60F and there is soft moss on the ground. Our intentional co-housing community has an enchanting wooded labyrinth that can be found on the Worldwide Labyrinth Locator.
I am fortunate to live so close to it and walk the path every day when the weather is warm enough. I have built quite an intimate relationship with this space and love basking in the freshness of nature there! When the birds sing, my spirit sings, too! When I sit on the bench at the center to meditate, I am always delighted with visits from squirrels, chipmunks and a gardener snake once in a while.
The labyrinth keeps me centered, and at the center, I usually complete my daily Reiki practice. Even before I began working with Reiki energy, I have been drawn to completing rituals or meditations that honor the elements and/or the kingdoms of the natural world at the center. I can feel the peaceful, accepting spirit of the space surround me as I complete those rituals. As I return to the outside world, I usually carry with me some insight about my life and the path I am meant to walk.

With a focus on sharing this month and the ways we set up our plans to the actual way we place our first step, beginnings can offer us a way to realize our outcomes.
- Explore what beginning is like for you, personally or professionally in all you do.
- Observe yourself in this first quarter of the year as a contribution.
- Walk, design, teach, build, express yourself in sharing an experience this month.
