Creating From the Labyrinth

Dear Friends,

After more than a week (due to weather and travel) 

I was finally able to start my morning in the Labyrinth.  In the early morning light before the sun rose I walked back to my sacred space and had to pause to wonder, 

"Where did it go?"

Where oh where did my Labyrinth go? 

The recent storms, rain and wind had helped to cover the Labyrinth in a carpet of leaves.

This brought up several wonderful metaphors for me this morning. 

As I began the clearly marked path I had to pay attention.  For one of the first times since it's birth I had to slow down and really pay attention to the path or I could have easily gotten "lost." 

I decided to take off my shoes to enjoy the feel of the leaves.  I meandered.  I put rocks back in place where a raccoon(?) had moved them looking for food.

I noticed the maintenance that was needed and acknowledged the importance of doing the "work."

Love wins - especially when you uncover it!

I made it to the center after clearing off a few alters, gave gratitude for my amazing life and sang my morning prayers. 

This morning I heard crow, had a sacred Labyrinth kitty Venus with me on the journey and heard several other birds too.  

What are things that you need to give some special attention too this week?  Any maintenance that is calling your name?

Wrapping you around with infinite love and peace,

  1. Beautiful, Christine. Your labyrinth photo brought to my mind a covering for rest and cave time. Ah, I think that is the maintenance I need. I'm off to a horse farm this weekend, so maybe I'll get nourishing rest in the country with horse energy. Hugs to you.
