I walked the labyrinth today. I was the only one walking it, and I took my time, my consideration, and my soul on that walk. In fact, my soul called me there, as it had a message for me.
While I have walked the labyrinth a number of times before, I did it without the information and awareness that I now have about the uniqueness of such a walk. I have learned most of this from Karrie Wallen – and have experienced it the most with Dr. Kathryn Leeman (both from Redlands, Ca.). For me now, being in the labyrinth is like being in the womb – very safe, very peaceful, very cocooned, yet very open.
In the center of the labyrinth, there are petals, and each petal has a meaning, with the center between the petals being designated as Love. I found myself walk right into the petal of Abundance, and as I stood there, the energy felt electric – I knew I was in the right spot. I also walked through each of the petals – faith, surrender, service, forgiveness, and overcoming – but the “charge” for me this walk was in abundance. So, I thought: “is this love of abundance?” And the answer was “no, it’s about an Abundance of Love” – my whole being resonated with that, and an excitement built within me. I had my message – and that’s what I contemplated on the rest of my walk through the labyrinth…
An abundance of Love – am I always aware of that? Am I always in the flow of that? Isn’t that true for ALL of us? Didn’t we come to the planet to experience ourselves as this Love so that we could shine it upon others in our lives? Isn’t that “shining” upon ourselves and others the abundance of the Universe? And if so, then how could there POSSIBLY be lack of any kind? Love is free, freely given, “what makes the world go ‘round”, the best part of us, and our soul speaking to and through us. Stop in this moment and feel the abundance of love in your life – and if you have difficulty with that, look at where you might be denying yourself that love. Look in the mirror, in your own eyes, and see your soul shining through, loving YOU! It is so unconditional, so unabashedly given, so pure in its intent…can you see it? Can you feel it? It’s your birthright!
At this time of year, it’s easy to get caught up in the holiday trappings and forget Who We Are! This year, remember that the best gift given, that carries the most gratitude with it, is that Abundance of Love! And you know what? As you open to that Love, watch how abundance fills the other areas of your life to overflowing as well! It’s guaranteed!
