Heart Designs

Day 53: February 22
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Awareness
In The Month of: Love


It is a blessing and a joy to bring the heart into focus in this walk of possibility we are creating daily in the 365 Experience. Leading with the heart this month has opened up numerous activities, valuable insights and appreciable gratitude in what can be accomplished in the name of simple honesty. When its not complicated, its value is immense and helps us to realize that potential is an essence of opportunity we can tap into and expand in any moment.

Today with a group of women, the conversation heart took on a new dimension of heart in the pathways of our connection and collaboration. Spreading out the Conversation Hearts, each designed and developed their own independent conversation of what their heart spoke in all honesty. The conversations that came in discussion were wonderfully rich and revealing.  Of the three I created, this is the one that I enjoyed the most.

A suggestion to walk with:

On this 53rd day…
Take steps into your heart, stop often, listen intently and continue as your heart speaks.

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.

Creative Scheduling

Day 22: January 22
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Awareness
In The Month of: Definition

I find the more we practice the more we make the realizations about what is right, what is true and what is aligned with our purpose and beliefs. I got in the habit of creating a short focus of time daily to the labyrinth and that helped me to make more  daily habits that support my efforts.

It isn’t for everyone, though it works for me and has gotten easier over the past 14 years. When we can set up simpler ideas and have some value behind them, we are more likely to find that it isn’t a goal, or overarching commitment, it is pure enjoyment and something we look forward to discovering. In this practice, its about realizing what else we possess in gifts, talents and abilities and what more we are capable of. Think of it as a daily surprise awaiting as it is more honest approach and much more productive.

I have a few labyrinths in design hung on the walls and they make for a quick walk while I am waiting for something. The approach is to encounter the experience as something I am looking to realize or discover more than I know right now. It becomes a growing game of what’s next, what’s more and what else I can do or be. When I make the labyrinths easily available, I’m more likely to use them. A picture on the wall, a hanging finger labyrinth, a design on your floor or even just the very small devices left in different rooms can serve us in simple moments of magic.

Define more of your moments in this way and notice how much easier it becomes to put value into your schedule for daily discoveries. Let’s not forget how easy it is to download a labyrinth walk on a smart phone application.

A suggestion to walk with:

Simplify one important thing today to make it more user friendly.

Honest Amusement

Day 10: January 10
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Awareness
In The Month of: Definition

The Laffy Taffy LabyrinthLightening the past few days with a little levity, the cleaning out of storage provided an opportunity of design. Finding a large bag of Laffy Taffy that was used in annual parades and events, the now hardened candy could provide a new use in developing a sweet walk before it was tossed. An honest moment of creative fun defining practicality and usefulness in building a resource from what was available.  When the mind thinks in labyrinths, everything is fair game.

While this was only a small design with 67 pieces of candy, there was enough to create a life sized walk as well.

A suggestion to walk with:

Discover amusing real moments in your walk and reflections.

Virtual Sharing

TLS 365 Experience #281
December 6, 2017

When in the busy of my day online, I would take a few moments to regroup walking a virtual labyrinth on my computer at work. There was an online site in particular I was more partial to, as it gave a variety of walks and it only added the option to include music on the journey. This left the experience of the walk totally up to me.  Where other online sites that popped up over the years were well intentioned with messages, guides or stopping me with reflections; simply sharing the design as the creator intended and leaving the walk up to me became a noble gift.

In turn, I shared the site with others in the office.  There would be a random moment of familiar music that brought a smile to know that another was finding similar benefit and a moment of peace into their day. Grateful for the designers who share their simple gifts that give so much to others like myself.

Contribution

TLS 365 Experience #215
October 1, 2017

Illinois Labyrinth focused on Contribution

October begins the last chapter of the TLS 365 Experience for 2017 and the topic is all about Contribution.  Walking on this theme this morning it seems like it would be no surprise to meet others on the walk who wanted to know a bit more. It was in meeting individuals who wanted to add a labyrinth for their community that the topic really made me smile.

Everyone of us contributes and without even knowing it most likely.  In your walk of this day, consider the value of what the labyrinth represents and how you are contributing with it. Maybe you have been contributed to by others?  It can be as simple as answering a question for someone, or as large as creating a community for understanding and using it. It can also be just showing up and supporting another’s efforts…

Share your story with us and acknowledge your efforts and those of others, together we make a wonderful contribution for awareness, understanding, and the application of the labyrinth.
