Labyrinth of Hope & Possibilities; built January 6,  2019

Step by step, turn by turn,

Cast all cares aside

As you walk this path of wonder.

Meet the beauty surrounding you

Like an old friend.

Step by step, turn by turn

Look closely and listen carefully

To the life moving about you as you walk along.

Hear this place sing to you

Its welcome song.

Step by step, turn by turn,

Meet yourself with a new perspective,

A you that seems like a shadow

In the glare of modern demands and distractions.

This is the real you.

Step by step, turn by turn,
Smile at yourself.
Your thoughts,
Both familiar and new,
Begin to dance gracefully.
You feel fresh energy swirling
Playfully around you
As you keep walking with perfect trust
The spiral path stretching before you.

Step by step, turn by turn,
You reach the spacious center.
The music of the moment
Lightens your heart.
You meet the spirit of Wisdom.
With her there is peace, maybe joy.

Step by step, turn by turn,
You walk around the center,
Then choose a place to be still a moment.
You linger, soaking up this chance meeting
With a vibrant, colorful, sparkling world
You’ve forgotten existed.

Step by step, turn by turn,
You feel younger as you step
Out of the center.
You step back onto the path,
Which will lead you on a journey
To the world you left behind,
A world waiting for you to manifest
Your unique Wisdom and Magic.

 

Your Unique Wisdom and Magic

Find a labyrinth to walk and release all the worries of everyday life as you enter the path.  Let go and clear your mind as you walk in toward the center.  If that isn’t so easy, find something on the path that is beautiful to focus on as you walk.

As you reach the center, think of what you love to do most in the world.  What is it that keeps your soul alive?  What do you reach for when you want some “down time?”  Is it markers and a coloring book, a musical instrument or a pen and a journal?  The answer to this question is a clue to the unique Wisdom and Magic you have to give the world.  Give thanks to spirit for your gift.  As you walk out, think of a project you’ve been wanting to work on.  Let your thoughts about it fill you with joy.  When you’ve returned to the beginning, write down your thoughts in a notebook to bring home with you.
