In The Year of Honest Living
In The Quarter of: Contribution
In The Month of: Honest Gifts

Segment Four: Talents
Days 353-358

Soul Speaking Steps

The inner voice of our abilities might be considered as the soul that speaks. When we note resistance in our body, thoughts or feelings, we know that something is off and rather than merely push through, a moment of listening to the reservoir within might yield a moment that affirm a pattern to push through or ask for a shift of perspective.

Listening to the voice is something many attend to on the labyrinth. Discerning a greater truth in our perception or opening our mind to a different direction. Deep in the seat of our soul is the place we store our values and beliefs. They are what drive us to do and be as we are. They are learned traits and behaviors we adopt to correspond and interact with our environs and come from a variety of sources that shape the process that brings our results. 

Beyond the learned experiences, there is an innate voice that has the ability to be connected to something more universal and relative to all. It’s untrained voice can speak softly at times and become a raging volume when its a calling to act or follow. Somewhere in between is a place where our soul points us to our honest abilities and when we make the time to listen and learn its message as we do in our labyrinth walks, we align with limitless possibilities.

Each experience of the labyrinth this year has soul walking possibilities. They are always present, though it is up to each of us to open and accept as we are ready and willing to do so. When we do, we change the way we walk. 


Daily Insights of this 356th day…
Walk and listen, what is speaking in each step, body from the movement? Mind in thoughts? Soul of feeling?

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

  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.

Resilient Rebounding

Day 349  December 15
In The Year of Honest Living
In The Quarter of: Contribution
In The Month of: Honest Gifts

Segment Three: Fortitude
Days 347-352

Resiliency in the Rebound

Five pointed star labyrinth image for Segment 3 by TheAmusedMuse.comRubber is a resilient chemical as it bounces back and regains its former shape after resistance is applied. Over time it can wear out from pressure as it uses the same chemical composition for each impact. Compared to human resiliency, we can choose to grow and improve from resistance events. We all wear out with age and have our limits as to the pressure we choose to withstand, though our nature offers us much more than a chemical compound does.  

Our abilities grow the more we expose ourself to education and applications of it. It is in the unexpected events that we often realize the unexpected within ourselves. Rubber doesn’t grow under pressure, though as humans we have the opportunity to do so and in the process grow stronger in our belief in ourselves the more we increase application.

If we want to understand honest living, it is in the elections we make to grow and explore that assist us as we define our fortitude from a place of expansion to live into the largeness of possibility in a world wide open with wonder. Our desire to know and grow moves beyond the set backs and comes back stronger more resilient for the second trip.

Into these experiences, set backs have occurred, yet the intention and desire have continued to inspire and by the end of each month, something larger than what we began with has developed and grown. As we review the year’s experience, resiliency has provided growth perspective.


Daily Insights of this 349th day…
Consider where you rebound the best and walk each path realizing ways to enhance that quality.

The Message in the Wind

Day 51: February 20
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Awareness
In The Month of: Love

The weather can sometimes be a test of our truth. When the sun is shining, there isn’t much of a question as we find comfort in the warmth of the sun’s rise. This is the time we appreciate most as it is less conflicted and exists before or after a storm, or any period of seasonal turbulence. As the wind howls around today’s walk, grounding is a necessity as the gusts are picking up on anything not rooted or steadfast. Walking in the whirl of winds brings a message of change. Where change is constant, we find we are resistant to it as humans. We like our routines and known outcomes and change represents the alternative.

Today the weather’s winds are speaking volumes of change, leaving whispered messages for another day in lieu of the howling attentions sought in both its ability to create pressure and movement to provide sound in its spiraled circular masses.  The winds are not gentle in their communication, rather abrupt and demanding. Instead of resisting what might move me from the path of today’s steps, a decision to flow with its motion and use its undercurrent to advantage in staying upright became akin to playing with the wind and creating new paths.

In the release of resistance one can discover how the wind is a natural labyrinth.

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 Blissful Curiosity

TLS 365 Experience #66
May 5, 2017

The ladies of the guild came to the labyrinth with undecided ideas.
It was an opportunity to walk together and experience something new in doing so.
They were unsure, curious and a bit skeptical of this labyrinth thing, yet their curiousness made them peer past their propriety to consider the ancient lore and current education that was shared.

As they embarked upon their journey their was a twittering of communication, followed by glances that defied intrusion into their perception, and soon a surrounding silence as each contemplated the place where their foot met the path more intently.

What began with resistance ended in acceptance as the ladies of the guild dismissed the previous cautions to give way to natural curiosity. What had been a skeptical ignorance became a blissful curiosity.
