Walking the labyrinth I can feel movement.

Through the twists and turns, feeling the floor with my feet and the muscles in my body through my hips and thighs as I simply walk along.

Beyond

Day 327  November 23
In The Year of Honest Living
In The Quarter of: Contribution
In The Month of: Grateful Pathways

Week Four: Counting Your Blessings

Exploring the elements of thanks, gratefulness, and appreciation may have elevated and expanded understanding of gratitude. It is understood in the cognitive sense, experientially impressed in the body, emotionally directive and soulfully affirmed. The fourth element of gratitude is found in the blessings it creates. 

As all experiences have beginnings and endings, blessings  are found in both, yet stem from our interaction of being aware, explored or applied. Blessings are always available, though it takes our participation to realize the prize that awaits our request. One path at a time, we open blessings. This week gratitude opens from the blessings we count.

Blessings Labyrinth Path 1

 

The First Blessing: Beyond

In the walk of the labyrinth we begin and end and begin again. From the first step in to the turns that are frequent, there is a place we move into as we move out of one turn and into another. The same holds true for the center space of the labyrinth. We step in and we go beyond. 

What takes us beyond is the curious mystery of what lays between spaces, after and before. In each a blessing is tucked away in between the access and egress. Blessings are everywhere, though with a walk of the labyrinth, there is an intention to discover through movements which become a continual action of into and out of. With each navigation we chance to open what lays within and what invites us beyond. 

 


Daily Insights : On the first path of Appreciation in this 327th day…
Walk the blessing of going beyond the spaces, places and races from here to there, counting the blessings that appear in your walk.


November’s Focus

Banner Image of Grateful Pathways for November 365 Experiences

Week Four Focus: Blessings

In discovering the elements of gratitude, thanks is an expression we use to communicate our sense of what we hold gratitude for. Explore the ways Appreciation is felt this week on the labyrinth in daily walks, group facilitation, program creation, offerings, artwork, illustration and design, building canvas or permanent designs, books written or poetry created. However you find thanks as the path, on the path or of the path you are on… how is it expressed?

    • Personal: consider the ways of your own personal adventures and use.
    • Associations: contemplate the ways of use with friends, family, and relationships or other acquaintances.
    • Environs: realize the community uses, organizations, landscapes encountered.
    • Global: imagine the ways that what you do reaches others in the world environs.

Share and become part of history and her story…

Consider the topic with the ways you currently use the labyrinth for self or sharing with others:

• 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
• Writing, poetry, creations, installations, etc.
• Learn something new about yourself, others or the labyrinth this month.

Polka Dot Possibilities

Day 245  September 2
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Application
In The Month of: Labyrinth Expressions

IMAGE OF classical labyrinth with polka dots
Every time I take a turn, it is a new opportunity and a possibility.

Using the most basic style of labyrinth, I added color to my possibilities.
I like to experience life a little lighter and see more opportunities in my experiences, so polka dots seem to be a lively and light hearted reminder to turn into something more purposeful.

Why?

Because in life, I love to play with possibilities and the labyrinth is a constant provider.

Steering

Day 116: April 26
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Education
In The Month of: Amusement

Day 116 Labyrinth, the wheelHaving spent the better part of the last few days behind the wheel of a car traveling cross country, the wheel became a fascination with circular reality. It purposefully led the direction and where it went straightforward mainly, there were turns and new directions to embrace; each defining the journey and the point of direction. The wheel itself turned left then back to center, right then back to center and continued in a natural way that appreciated the labyrinth and what it can offer in similar migration.

The next time you partake of a journey, consider the directions and redirections made by the simple turn of fate and turn on purpose. Let the wheel of life rotate to bring great directions and reflections.

On this 116th day…
Take a walk today on the labyrinth  and notice turns and directions that guide you. Consider the many turns and directions throughout your day and where they lead.

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!

Sad to Glad

TLS 365 Experience #202
September 18, 2017

Very sad today. I am not sure how to explain the depth of what brings me to this sadness, though it is heavy and deep. I choose to walk the labyrinth today however in honor of this sadness as it’s pain and discomfort is a reminder that I cared, loved and was involved. So I walk the labyrinth in this way in observance and appreciation. As I walk I am reminded of the actions I took and efforts I made that brought me to this point. I turn the corner and turn my thoughts from fault to appreciation that I made the effort. I am reminded of the importance of my efforts and the importance of myself and I walk on. I consider the feelings I have had and as I make another turn, I am finding myself noticing both the uncomfortable pain and the fact that I have feelings.

I notice where and what hurts and I realize the throbbing and pulsing and still myself with hand over heart. There is throbbing and pulsing and I am aware of how this beating heart allows me to care and flow and that I did.  As I continue I find my thoughts arise and a diminished perspective sees the habits I have outgrown revisited and the ones that still evoke self doubt and sabotage. Interestingly these thoughts mount as I come to make another turn. On the other side of it, I realize what has been, what is and what I wish to think beyond. I realize worth of self in these steps and the thoughts that support what I can do, what I offer and what I am.

As I come into the center I come into the choice of the way I appreciate my life and how the sadness becomes my teacher and a reminder of my gladness often. As I leave the center, I move onto each path in the thoughts and feelings of what I hold dear and how it heightens my heart and moves me into a gladness for my sadness and an appreciable sense of well being.

Walking With The Body

TLS 365 Experience #83
May 22, 2017

I walk a lot.
I like to walk.
When I am on a long walk in nature it is a fabulous thing to be reminded of how natural we truly are. There is a sense of naturalness that I relate to as I walk the labyrinth.

As I move inward in a spiraling way and recognize the shifts in the turn that occur on my journey inward, I recogize the natural way our body flows. The brain and the belly each wind themselves inward to a central location, though along the way there are these turns that seem to take slighly different directions, only to return again moving inward. The fingerprints navigate in the same manner as does the fine circuitry of our inner ears, though looking at the design in our outer ear makes for wonder as well.

When we look more closely at the body design, there is much to indicate that it’s natural operation is very labyrinth in nature. So when I do place my foot upon the path to begin a walk and focus on the whole of my body, I find that everything about me is alert to the steps I take in a most natural way.

The Intuitive Walks

TLS 365 Experience #78
May 17, 2017

In this quarterly focus of education, the idea of what the labyrinth offers for the intuitive nature is a life education of what we have within. The way of the path provides a walk into possibility, the moment we engage with our first step. Not always, but often a question is asked at the beginning. It is an intention for meaning of the walk, though with the relaxation that takes place in brain and body, what can come forth is an internal knowing along with an understanding that can direct us to the details that come along with that intention.

I find when I walk as a practice, I develop more of my knowing and growing intentionally and intuitively.
