The labyrinth called for me last night. I woke, still in my pajamas, found my old prayer beads and headed to the back woods to answer the call. As the fog danced over the trees, the trail dressed in green moss whispered even louder. Spring is clearly entering the mornings this week even with the light rain. And, then, there in a nook of the forest the labyrinth surprised me with a lit path waiting with enchantment.
Something magical happens the moment we enter a labyrinth joining the psyche and the soul through the repetition of steps and motion. In moments of pure presence, meditation, prayer or deep consciousness the labyrinth answers without even asking questions. It is mystical. On this particular morning the earth sustained me through my bare feet with cold, wetness, and a bit of discomfort. Each step, turn, and movement was a metaphor for the twist and turns of the mind. The labyrinth became a sacred intimate union between body and spirit. I’ve been walking in circles all of my life never stopping to pay attention to each curve until a few years ago. Now I see and hear those things that connect me to the Great Mysteries. This walk was a reminder of such clarity and the challenges of the unbeaten path to get here.
I am grateful for each human connection through the journey and the lessons that have reshaped me. I now honor my yearnings, thoughts, images and dreams by allowing them to show me the way in co-creating through an intuitive path. This morning, upon my entrance I inhaled the cold dew and when I exited a while later I exhaled truth: the labyrinth allowed time and space to dissolve. I was transported to the sacred land of divinity. The silence spoke to me, showed me, liberated me while gently loving myself through God.
We walk in circles. We do it unconsciously. The secret is to walk in complete awareness of Divinity through trust. It is this silent guidance that brings wisdom and comfort into our troubled moments. Allow the path to guide you wherever it will take you. Embrace the road ahead. Accept the maze in your mind to surrender to the sacredness in your heart. Love, light and peace always!
