  2. For Your Experience: 
    Reflect on the effects of walking with your shadow… what do your steps create?
  3. Share:   Share your message

Today’s Experience:

A fun way to walk the labyrinth, is to walk with your shadow. On this Ground Hog’s Day experience, walking in the early morning or afternoon can walk inside the shadow at some point and outside it at others. As the shadow can represent, larger perspectives than we might normally not see, or smaller ones of a different angles, experiment with where and when your shadow appears.

In the spirit of love, play with your shadow and discover where it might represent the longer views of what you love to be, do or experience as you walk. Imagine the Ground hog’s custom of seeing the shadow as an interpretation of where the love flows freely as if an enormous reflection on the labyrinth and where you might be in search of it should the absence be noted.

You can always position a labyrinth cut out overhead and let the sunlight project its shadow to finger walk, or if the shadow is large enough, you can physically walk it. A very different perspective.

February: A Month of Love

If we are going to collaborate, contribute and care in a mutually beneficial way, it reasons that a month of love tucked into our year would bring out what we love, why we love it, how we love it, when we do and where we might focus that energy.  In this month the contributions you become aware of can be shared to walk in the steps of what calls our heart to action. As we walk toward walking the world with others, taking steps to realize our own relationship with love will assist us in how and what we are, what we offer and what we contribute.

  1.  Explore steps of love in simple walks personally or professionally in the days of this magical month.
  2.  Become aware of the things you love, the people and what becomes relative when love is the focus.
  3.  Walk, design, teach, build, and share the love expressed in sharing an experience this month of current experiences or past that are related to the focus of love.
  4. This experience moves forward because of your sharing and caring, thank you!

Today’s Experience:

Image of the labyrinth and the phases of the moonYesterday began a transition into the natural progressive change of the moon’s phases in its minute to directly face the sun, creating a half point in its money transitioning. As we begin our descent from the full moon today and our ascent into the last quarter phase of the moons revolving cycle, the diminishing of the shadow is a reflective walk of consideration. it reminds us of the work we put into something and the point of which it is realized.

Somewhere in our second phase of realization a walk of the labyrinth today looked at the seeds sown in a number of different projects, ideas and efforts that began earlier in the month. Indeed it is time to shift the type of effort and prepare for the harvest. It is a reminder of the different amounts of vital energy needed at different intervals in the lifespan of an effort. In this final phase of the moon and this walk today, each is reflective of that productive energy.

Natural Transition

Day 21

January 21, 2019
Month of Beginnings
Quarter of Consciousness
Let’s Walk the World, a focus of contribution

  1. For Your Walk:
    How do you experience the moon’s phases on the labyrinth? Consider the ways you personally walk through the month of rising growing and descending phases.
  2. For Your Experience: 
    Notice how your experiences relates to the labyrinth, the moon and life.
  3. Share:   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.

Today’s Experience:

Image of the labyrinth on the sea in the moonlightThe full moon has begun its phase of completion in its journey of monthly transformation for January. January’s moon is known as the Wolf moon and it brings an interesting eclipse as the moon drops into Earth’s shadow in its orbit. As the moon enters the Earth’s light shadow (penumbra) it will move through about five hours of transition until complete for a total lunar eclipse.

A labyrinth walk during one of these phases of transition through the eclipse can be transformational and illuminating. An evening group walk or workshop can consider the transition of the eclipse in the design of the labyrinth. Allowing the natural migration of the labyrinth’s weaving of direction provides a spiral of depth for purposeful pursuit. One can walk into the center of the labyrinth as the stage of the moon begins its eclipse and out of the center or out of the labyrinth’s reflective return stroll as the navigation completes.

Walking out of the eclipse of the moon, we are reminded that the full state of the moon’s status offers a remaining waning quarter for reflection.  Experience a waxing to waning walk using the center or the whole labyrinth.

The Ground Hog’s Dilemma

Day 33: February 2
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Awareness
In The Month of: Love

On this second day of love focus, the groundhog makes its whimsical reminders of the seasonal shifts ahead by either showing up eager to take on what is ahead and offers a warm reception or burrowing deep, not yet ready to forge ahead into the newness of the year.  Walking steadily grounded on the path today, this was an interesting focus about honestly realizing where readiness prevailed and where it did not.

The few turns where focus drifted led to a confused step on the pathway ahead into an unplanned direction and repeating of a few circuits. In what came to mind, it was clear there was hesitation and an unreadiness to pursue what was ahead. It was also an awareness where not a lot of love prevailed either.  Reaching the other side in a long walk, there was a full and ready charge to take action and interestingly enough, a great value had been established in seeing what was not ready and understanding why. If based on this walk as a reference, the Groundhog may or may not have seen his shadow based on what was confused and unclear. Though where love made an appearance, honesty and clarity were the clear and positive messages for forging ahead.

This labyrinth design came out of the idea of readiness, the love of light hearted fun and the outer and inner core of now or perhaps later when things are more aligned. 

—————————————————————————————

A suggestion to walk with:

On this second day…
Walk with honest notice of what comes up ready and how what you love shows up.

————————————————————————————–


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!

TLS 365 Experience 2018: The Year of Living Honestly
Whether it’s a daily walk, teaching others, sharing an experience, expressions of art, building or design, we explore the questions of what brings us to honesty in our use of the labyrinth. 

In a world of emerging truth, the labyrinth is a great experience to discover more of what is right and true about ourselves and humanity. Join us in sharing the honest moments it reveals.

 

Daily unfolding the process:
Next Mid Month 365 Experience Gathering on February 15th at Noon (EST)  to explore the monthly focus. Share your posts from your walks and experiences with our theme this week at: 365Experience@labyrinthsociety.org
