A Sense of Sense

Five pointed star labyrinth image for Segment 4 by TheAmusedMuse.comThe five traditional senses, offer us a basic interpretation of how we interface with the world. Minimized to three, chemical (smell, taste), mechanical (sound, touch) and photon (visual) we might consider the categorizations to minimize our experiences. Science now explores up to 39 different sensations that we utilize to interpret our world. 

Some add a detail to the categorization that is more definitive and a clarification of what we are actually experiencing. Keeping this longer list in mind for its classification ability, the traditional appreciation of the five will suffice for this articulation and offer an opportunity to explore the many new discoveries to deeper degree. 

The sense of sight is something we’ve become overly dependent on as when we see, we can trust. When we don’t we can become suspect to the viability. Largely dependent on visual acuity, we’ve lessened the greater perceptibility that can be valued in the frequency of time we spend utilizing the other senses. When we turn off visual ability, we can often find that it takes a little adjustment, though we can learn to navigate our world. 

The labyrinth offers us the opportunity to walk and experience. Knowing is what builds from visual appreciation, though experiencing involves taking in more of our sensory world and observing our interactions. As this year has deepened our experiences, we can know we have expanded our sensory abilities as well.  


Daily Insights of this 357th day…
Walk and observe the paths of your innate sensory abilities. Listen on one path, observe what is felt on another, notice your taste on yet another and realize aroma on a different path. Use vision and then turn it off to realize more appreciation of other senses.

Refresh, Renewal and Redesigns of Your Year

31 daily walks. ideas, topics and considerations for personal appreciation to professional sharing will be focused in this month utilizing six five-star labyrinths and a summary day to encompass what the magnitude of what has been discovered this year and bring it forward as gifts realized in the ways we gave to ourselves and others and received for ourselves and others. Following the five pointed star labyrinth this month in five points:

  1. Follow along Daily or as often as you can
  2. Consider what you have created or developed this year in regard to honest abilities
  3. Reflect on the five day segment focuses throughout the month with those abilities
  4. Review, journal, create or develop your own reflection in a daily experience
  5. Share your experience and add to the Daily Wisdom of the 365 Experience

Review the Gifts in Five Day Segments:

    • Giving to ourselves as well as what we give to others is a reminder of what we do possess in gifts, capacity, ability, skills, and talent that bring us fulfillment. The first five days will focus on what has been developed in this year and what it gave.
    • Inspiration in the inner motivation we possess, the focus of looking back at our discoveries to notice over the next five days about what inspired our capabilities into actionable realizations will be a great topic to select meaningful moments this year.
    • Fortitude in the courage, resilience and mettle that have risen this year when in consideration of the ways we understand, use, and apply the labyrinth and relate it to ourselves either personally or professionally, the next five days will be reflective.
    • Talent is something everyone possesses, discovering natural gifts using the labyrinth in a variety of ways reveals depth of talent to reconsider and perhaps discover something new over the following five days.
    • Skill is learned, developed, and practiced through desire and the more we can apply it in various ways, the more we comprehend with new levels of learning. The last five days will be an opportunity to renew, remember and redesign skills.

Consider the weekly and daily focus presented this month in review and rediscover through the many ways you have used or ideas below that you can use the labyrinth with:

• Personal Walk
• Group Walk, Program, Workshop, Education, etc.
• Designs, Artwork, illustrations, photos of labyrinth you walked, etc.
• Building concepts, tips, techniques, design ideas, etc.
• Personal Development, Guidance, Growth orientation, etc

Abundant Giving

Day 339  December 5
In The Year of Honest Living
In The Quarter of: Contribution
In The Month of: Honest Gifts

Segment One: Giving
Days 335-340

Abundant Giving

image of day 339 Star Labyrinth of GivingWhen we have enough, knowing our basic needs are met, we have the opportunity to rise to the gracious space of knowing enough. In the land of enough, giving has no restraints as if flows freely and naturally knowing the laws of nature are to naturally give and receive. 

The poorest countries prove that we only require enough to find a place of happiness and comfort in the safety it provides, so everyone has equal footing once that level is reached. If we had only a partial labyrinth drawn, the security comes in knowing how to complete it ourselves and appreciate a full walk for ourselves and for others. 

Without worry, we can be free to openly create and love what we inspire. From a place that calls us to share, design or walk for our own well being, comes a place of being grounded and an area to sprout a flow of opportunity for ourselves and for those around us. It is similar to one who installs a permanent labyrinth, from a personal abundance to be shared by who comes across it. 

Having left many sand creations, snow shuffles, simple material designs and a pine cone labyrinth in the woods this year, developing it came from an abundant flow of desire and leaving it behind meant other people could walk and enjoy its purposeful path to, in their own way.  It is one of the things that is so enjoyable about the labyrinth, the love of developing that leaves a path for others to discover in their own time and purpose. We leave a legacy behind.


Daily Insights of this 339th day…
Consider a walk of what is enough and what is truly not enough. How are steps with an abundant mindset give a different perspective?

Day 136: May 16
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Education
In The Month of: Celebration

What is next... in the second half labyrinth

 

One might think that in the second half of a celebration there is clean up; however in our quest there is a wonderful opportunity to review what happened in the first half of the month and now use it more efficiently, effectively and perhaps excitedly in the second half. How might you complete the second half of this labyrinth and how might it be in step with the balance of your steps into the rest of May?

Your knowing, understanding and realizations that have occurred in the elements of celebration, appreciation and realization are the capabilities expanding, evolving and elevating for our walking, waking and working consciousness.

Do enjoy your next steps, next creations, next facilitations, next nexts! The land of next can be full of anticipation, dreams and inspirations.

 

On this 136th day…
In the Second Half of Celebration, appreciate your step into what it is that comes next today.


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.

April Showers

Day 119: April 29
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Education
In The Month of: Amusement

April Showers LabyrinthApril showers brought a season of reminders in this month of the fullness of a year. Having traveled in different states this month, the different states of event and experience were realized in most amusing ways. The unusual snows that appeared overnight in Chicago, not once but four times during my stay reminded of the heartiness of the Midwest character as a result of experiencing and adapting to change.

It was as if April had become a perpetual April Fool’s Day joke and as it is National Humor Month, the steps taken in becoming more amused with whatever befalls, became a rich opportunity to enjoy and to listen, learn and laugh with the multitude of overly serious attitudes that perpetuate the circumstances we find ourselves in.  When we are more ready to listen, we hear more. When we are open to curiosity, we learn more and when we laugh more, we create a dynamic introspective of perspective.

The showers of April brought forth a more amusing and appreciative side of ourselves and in the spirit of the season, we encompassed winter, spring, summer and construction season activities all in the interesting span of living a year’s worth of weather in 30 days. With April showers we nourish what we seed and plant, so in this time of seasonable shifts, allow the reflective walk today to harvest what you have sown.

On this 119th day…
Step into your favorite season and notice what occurs in your walk today. Step into each season and observe your responses.

April's Banner Year of Living Honestly 2018April’s Focus

Let this month unfurl your creativity, spontaneity and jocularity. It feels good to feel good and while we have been conditioned to shush our good times, let the labyrinth be our own private creation station of amusement, enjoyment and playful experiments. This month educate with amusement and see how much farther you get. Have fun and be creative.  We have three opportunities to education your potential with amusement this month that involves either your personal walk, your ability to design and how much you can learn by sharing. On your Mark, Get Set…Go!

  1. Innovate – Walk Amused
    In the 30 days that grace this month, play with the way you personally experience the labyrinth. Let this season of education be one of personal bests and enjoy finding a new way to be innovative, creative, inspired and amused in your personal experiences. I’d love to see what you come up with!
    Please share your wonderful experiences! 

2. Create – Design Inspired 
To date I have created 95 different labyrinth creations and designs since the beginning of the year, let that inspire you to create something new this month that is inspiring and firing for your imagination. Einstein said that playing with ideas was the highest form of research and this is an education for all of us.  As you walk in new ways, share your designs as I have done with mine last year and this. Perfection isn’t what we are after, amusement is! I look forward to seeing what you come up with! I will toss out lots of inspiring ideas… stay tuned daily.
Share away and become a glad designer instead of a mad one!  

3. Relate – Share with Care
One of the best ways to learn anything is having to teach or explain it to someone else. Whether you facilitate others, teach or simply share with a few, spend the month discovering amusing new ways to help others get more out of their walk with a lighter attitude and a more earnest enjoyment in what you share. Anything you want to know more about, share and this month share with a fun flair and notice how much more you actually begin to understand. You just might find a side of yourself forgotten. To receive all that, be a great giver.
Share what you discover!

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!
