My journey with The Labyrinth
“I believe the labyrinth offers each person a unique and healing space to explore the deepest meanings of their inner life and discover resources for their human journeying.” Di Williams – Veriditas Master Teacher
My first walk.
I came across a labyrinth in Los Angeles, CA for the very first time a few years ago.
I remember when I saw it, I approached it carefully. I was mesmerized by it and I was also very curious. I had never come close to one before.
I began the evening by standing in front of the labyrinth barefoot, in silence, in complete silence, in prayer, then I bowed, and I proceeded to enter it.
The minute I entered it; my journey began as I honored every step and every turn, and when I got to the center of it, I sat down, I felt peace and I cried, I cried tears of joy. On my way out I knew exactly what I had to do next.
How did all this happen? Well, I was open to receive, I allowed my inner wisdom to whisper, to guide me, to show me the way. I started to explore the potential of the labyrinth. It was a deep Spiritual experience.
During this walk is where my life began to take a dramatic turn.
The turn I had been waiting for and yet didn’t know exactly what it looked like until that night.
Reconnecting the Divine within, my creative and spiritual self-resurfaced.
Almost like a movie, all the years of work, studies, and experiences flashed before my eyes. The puzzle of my career began to take shape that same evening in ways I could have not experienced otherwise.
Everything I saw, heard, touched, smelled, and felt during my walk; was a message for me. I had gone into a deep meditation without realizing it.
This was a time in my life when I had hit a wall career wise and felt completely lost. After this walk, the rebirth of blúmariposa creative soul studios happened.
I continued to walk the labyrinth on a weekly basis and after a year, I was called to become a Veriditas Labyrinth Facilitator.
I have walked several labyrinths and my favorite one to this date is the one in Grace Cathedral in San Francisco, CA, a replica of the 13th century labyrinth of Notre- Dame de Chartres Cathedral in Chartres, France.
