Chapter 2.2 - A Little Song and Dance

I see a dance

Since these labyrinth patterns are a continuous path labyrinth, I can see a dance of people; holding hands as they walk/dance the labyrinth. All of them snaking through the twists and turns of the path all the while singing a beautifully haunting three-part round of the Labyrinth Chant.

Within a few rounds, the first person will reach the heart, at which point, everyone drops hands and gets quiet. Each one shifting from a collective meditative state to an individual meditative state, which actually brings us back to the collective.

Since this labyrinth pattern has a continuous path that does not require a u-turn at the heart/goal, it is possible to go right back in once reaching the end of the path. Each person can walk the labyrinth as many times as they need to until they feel they have reached an answer or conclusion to their particular question or situation. Some people will only walk it one time after changing to singular mode, while others may walk it several times before they feel they are “done”.

The group chant and dance is an energy builder and helps to raise the psychic energy collectively which in turn makes it easier for us as individuals to tap into that energy. It helps us process the higher vibration quicker therefore intuitively finding an answer to the question we are asking or problem we are seeking an answer to.

 

Importance of energetic protection

It is very important that you surround yourself in a bubble of protection before you start any psychic activity. Especially when you are working in a group. You never know what kind of energy is being brought in by others, so it's just best to protect yourself!

Individual experiences

Everyone will have a different experience on their walk. Some may cry due to a long-awaited breakthrough. While others may laugh for reasons only they can comprehend. Some will walk fast and some will walk slow. Just as our life walk is different for each person, so is this walk called the labyrinth. You may walk the labyrinth asking the same question over and over for a while, sometimes a year of more, or you may get answers right away. There is no wrong way to walk it. Listen to your intuition, follow your heart. If you are not used to using your intuition or following your heart, walk the labyrinth more frequently and it will come to you.

Dance your heart

Dancing the labyrinth may feel strange at first. The more you do it, the more natural it will become to you. If you like drumming or if you have always wanted to drum, this may be a good time to learn. Learn native songs and chants that mean something to you. You can do these activities on your own or maybe have a monthly moon dance where you can invite friends to come to experience the fullness of the labyrinth.

I encourage you to get to know this aspect of the labyrinth as it has a type of freedom that comes with singing and dancing.

If you are not one who likes to dance maybe just slow the regular walking rhythm of your heart. Experiment, listen to your heart, listen to the labyrinth. Learning starts with exploration.

Take the time to learn to dance from your heart's song.

Chapter 2.1 - A Little Song and Dance

Who said labyrinth work was boring?

This weekly installment of my book The Aquarian Labyrinth - A New Pattern for a New Age brings us to one of my favorite parts. Singing and dancing. Dancing the labyrinth is something that feels like a step back in time to a simpler way of looking at the world. No matter what culture you come from, our ancestors danced and sang in times of joy, sadness, pain, and healing. I hope this section helps you to find what you seek within the Aquarian Labyrinth.

Thank you once again for taking the time to read my book one chapter per week at a time. I appreciate all of the feedback I have received.

Blessed Be

Chapter 2.1 - A Little Song and Dance - from the book The Aquarian Labyrinth - A New Pattern for a New Age

Dancing the Labyrinth Path, Songs & Chants

After dinner, the facilitators of the workshops made a small auditorium available to Sig as it was starting to get very cold outside and by now was quite dark. Sig got everyone together for some team-building exercises with the class. Some of them I remember from campfire girls, gee who even remembers those? One of the games he did involve 4 bricks and 2 boards, where the whole class was on one big team. The object is to get everyone across the “river of acid” and each person can only cross once. I don't know the actual name of the activity but it is a very good team builder!

The activity that impressed me the most was a “dance” that he taught us. We were inside the auditorium with the storm outside gearing up for snow. I could feel the energy grow as the dance began. First, he taught us a simple chant. The tune is very old. I have heard many versions of the lyrics to the same tune, but I had never heard of this one. The version I was most familiar with was Rose Red. If you ever spent any time at Renaissance Faire, I'm sure you've heard it. It's most beautiful when sung in a round with three. The song I heard that night was also sung in such a round.

The version I heard that night was. Dear friends, dear friends – will I ever see thee again- you have given me your treasure- I love you so.

We sang it in a round that night, and the ancient power was thick in the air. Not only did we sing this song, but we also danced a very simple dance that was more like walking in rhythm than dancing. We held hands starting in a circle and ending up in a spiral. As this spiral continued, I could feel the majickal/psychic energy building in the room.

Once the first person in the chain reached the center, they would go under the arms of the people that were in front of them working their way back out of the spiral. It was at this time that the energy started to subside. It was also at this time that the thought came to me again. A continuous path would make it possible to do a dance like this. I really didn't give it much more thought than, Gee that would be nice if...

I have since learned that power is built on such fleeting thoughts. Sometimes your subconscious for whatever reason will decide to hold on to something like that and run with it, unbeknownst to us.

15 years later...

Shortly after the new pattern came to me, I started hearing a tune in my head. This is nothing new for me, as I usually have a tune or two running around in my head. What was odd about this tune is that I hadn't heard it in quite a while. It's not usually a song I sing. It was a tune that is usually sung in a round with at least two other people, as I had mentioned earlier in this chapter, and I didn't have any singing partners at the time.

This tune coming to mind started me thinking about that night so long ago in Lilydale. The trouble was, at the time I couldn't remember the words to it. I remembered how it felt to hold hands in a group and dance in a spiral. It flashed in my head and in my heart. I realized that the dance of this sort could be done on the new labyrinth pattern. Since this pattern has both an entrance and an exit that are right next to each other – a group could start a the beginning and dance all the way through the labyrinth then go right back in to start again since no one has to give room to pass for people coming out. I knew instinctively the flow would be amazing, and I longed for the time when I could experience that flow. Suddenly I had an image of just that. A group of people dancing the labyrinth. Raising the awareness of peace and healing. Not just for the planet collectively, but for each of us individually. Indigenous cultures of all continents have used dance as part of their spiritual walk. As part of their healing, and as part of their magick. I believe that every-time we walk a labyrinth, the planet heals a little more. The more labyrinths that are built and used, the more healing occurs. Not only for the plant but for her people as well. Each step on the labyrinth path is a step towards peace. I will talk more about that later.

I could see people singing and dancing the labyrinth, turning and dancing, singing and weaving. I thought about it all day as if another riddle had been placed before me to solve. The labyrinth is a riddle in and of itself, and now it was asking me to find It's song. The tune was there, it just needed words.

Months later as I was building the first Aquarian Labyrinth, the words came to me, while I was down on my knees placing stones. With the tune still playing in my head, the words came to me in such a flood, I had to run to my car to get a pen and paper. I am not a wordsmith by any means. I am not one who is known for writing songs or poetry. On the contrary, these gifts usually evade me. So the idea that this even happened was just one more amazing experience to add to the long list of amazing circumstances on this wonderfully special journey I now found myself on.

As I said before, the words just came in a rush, and those words were: Labyrinth, Labyrinth - Walk this spiral path of light - Finding Peace, Love, Joy, and Healing - At the heart.

This was such an overwhelming experience for me because as I said before, I am not usually lyrical. After that day the tune was there, in my head, every day until the labyrinth was completed, and then some.

On the day we consecrated the labyrinth which happened to be Winter Solstice 2011, I walked it and sang the song as I walked. It was wonderful. It set a nice pace for walking. I had to watch my footing periodically where the rocks were a little close together, But still, the pace was perfect for strolling through the twists and turns in rhythm. I could feel the energy grow as I made the last few rounds before the path goes to the center. When I reached the center, I could feel a playfulness, and a definite healing vibration permeated the atmosphere. Besides the incense and sage that was burning, I could see a light mist that seemed to envelop the area of the labyrinth.

The air was still and created a kind of smokey bubble around the labyrinth, but it wasn’t really smoke, it was something else. More like a type of spirit cloud, where the spirit gets so thick over an area that it will appear smokey or misty.

The song permeated my dreams for weeks, at times accompanied by dancers. I wasn’t sure why this was. I was actually confused by it. Then I realized that I knew all along. We are sentient beings, meaning that we have senses, five to be exact, and the music/singing/dancing was stimulating a different portion of my senses by adding dancing, rhythm, a heartbeat. My heartbeat, the earth's heartbeat, humanity's heartbeat. As the last line of the song says, “...at the heart”, which can also be sung as “...in my heart”. The heartbeat of the labyrinth is an extension of our collective heartbeat as a race. What if the labyrinth were a key to unlocking how to realign our heart with the heart of our Earth Mother – Mother Earth?

Being a body-worker, I notice a big difference in the way my clients relax depending upon if I have music playing in the background as opposed to when I don't. I notice when there isn’t music, they seem to want to fill in the silence with something so they tend to get chatty and that usually distracts from full relaxation.

I know how important the senses are. Because I do bodywork I try to incorporate the five scenes as much as possible into whatever modality I am working in. I believe it opens the client up to a deeper experience and gives them a chance to possibly connect with their sixth sense and be much more proactive in their healing experience.

I believe the same to be true with the labyrinth. It has the ability to engage all of our senses if we allow it.

After the first labyrinth was finished, I found myself singing and sometimes humming the labyrinth song. After a while I also found myself dancing. Not dancing in the conventional or modern sense, but dancing in an ancient sense.

This felt old, both in its rhythm and in its simplicity. If you are a dancer you may find it a bit boring. However, if you are allowing the spirit to guide the dance, you will find it easy to follow, and the flow that happens will soon show you that there is more to dancing the labyrinth than what appears on the surface.

Basically it's just walking in rhythm. One foot in front of the other to the rhythm of the music or even the sacred rhythm of your heart. It can be done by just dancing through the labyrinth, Or it can be done in other ways. My favorite is to turn sideways facing the center and continuing to face the center as the switchbacks try to turn me around the other way.

Another fun way to do it is like described above but without continually turning to the center and allowing yourself to be turned either toward the center or toward the outer circle by the switchbacks of the labyrinths turns. What will happen is this, you will sometimes be facing the people in front of you and sometimes they will have their back to you. Sometimes you will be moving in the same direction as the person you are facing and sometimes you will be traveling in the opposite direction. This makes another great metaphor for life, sometimes you are traveling in the same direction as those around you and sometimes you are traveling in a different direction than those around you, either way, it's okay, we will all end up where we belong. This is one of the many lessons of the labyrinth. Everyone will walk it differently, in their own unique and beautiful way and none of them are wrong.

The second day of workshops was supposed to be mostly outside. However, Mother Nature had other ideas. The rain started in heavy around 11:30 am so we had to move the workshop indoors. Before we got wet, I had the opportunity to take my first walk on the labyrinth. For me, this was perfect, as I tend to like rainy days.

As I stood in the autumn drizzle admiring the beauty and simplicity of the seven-circuit labyrinth stretched out before me. All I could think of, is how it lacked an exit path, but who was I to judge?

I wasn't doing it consciously, it was more like a passing thought. So despite its flawed nature, for my arrogant part, I found myself standing at the entrance to a new experience.

I closed my eyes, took a deep breath as if getting ready to jump into the water. Exhaled as I took my first step onto the path. Upon my exhalation I breathed the words - “Help me, to know you.” As I walked along this path of meandering, I found myself feeling as if I was making a sacred journey. My mind drifted near and far but I found my thoughts consistently came back to the beauty of the spiral. The spiral of life, and spirals in nature.

Our DNA is made up of spirals. Spirals within spirals. In our everyday modern lives, we rarely come across spirals. Modern man has made this live, flowing, spherical world that we were created to live in and on, into a dead, stagnant, square world, that HE has built. It made me question how tuned into the earth, are we? How tuned in am I?, and before I knew it, I was at the center, asking myself, How did I get here?

I stayed in the center for only a moment or two. Other students had begun their journey to the center and I didn't want to cause a bottleneck. Besides, I had been watching a big thunder cloud come over the valley and it looked like it was going to dump in about 10 minutes or less. Which was about how long it would take to walk back out and over to the hotel. As I felt the drop in temperature creep up my spine I knew it would be soon. I so wanted to stand in front of the fire in the hotel lobby right now.

As I made my final pass around the center and stepped back onto the path, I had an overwhelming feeling of gratitude. So much so, I choked on what were becoming tears. My heartbeat quickened and I began to praise and thank spirit for the gifts laid before me. I began to give thanks for all of the things in my life no matter how big or small. Thanksgiving for things as simple yet profound as my very breath. The spiral continued in my mind and moved around my heart. I could feel the healing power move through my body as if the labyrinth path had entered me somehow. This experience was much more profound than I had ever anticipated. I walked away from the labyrinth with the feeling that something ancient and sacred had happened. Almost like a type of initiation. The goddess had touched me yet again.

As I walked back to the hotel lobby, it began to rain. I was already wet and cold from the early morning drizzle., and now the actual rain had come. Interesting how that scenario was so well-timed.

I entered the lobby of the hotel and went straight to the fireplace. I was standing there warming my hands and drying my hat when Sig walked in equally wet. It had really started pouring after I came in and now it was hailing. I guess that the thunder cloud I was watching was right on time. He too made a beeline for the fireplace as did those who filed in behind him; all seeking warmth and dry.

As I was standing in front of the fireplace I noticed the painting that resided over it. It was what I would call an “elder” He had a beard and long white hair. He was standing in a very spiritual looking pose. His left arm was bent at the elbow and a 45-degree angle, which put his left hand directly over his heart, palm facing up, forefinger pointing, thumb, and middle finger touching. His right arm was also bent at a 45-degree angle with the lower part of his arm and hand pointing upwards or skyward. His hand was in a pointing position with the index finger extended and pointing straight up, thumb and middle finger touching.

I saw this painting before, but I never really “saw” it. It was always just background. Now it was making its presence known. I was intrigued. I stood in front of the painting and began to physically copy the pose. I stood in the same position and stared into those eyes of compassion.

When I stared into them long enough, I felt complete unconditional love, for the first time in my life that I was conscious of. I basked in this moment.

I stood there for close to an hour. At one point he seemed to come to life which was needless to say a little unnerving for a moment until I drifted back into basking in his eyes. This experience doesn’t have anything to do with labyrinths, other than the lesson of working with an oracle. If you work with one long enough, you will begin to unlock some of its secrets as you ask. This was the first time I ever had an experience with an oracle that I knew of. However, it would not be the last. Although this painting took me by surprise, I later realized that even the labyrinth is a type of oracle.

Because of the rain, which turned into an early storm, most of the afternoon activities were canceled for the day. We had a choice, we could go for a walk around the grounds, but who wants to walk in the rain, or we could find something to amuse ourselves or take a nap.

Some people were gathering together in one of the rooms in the lobby to practice what I describe as parlor tricks. I chose to go for a walk around the grounds, rain or not. As I walked, I noticed the birds and how a flock of them were flying in semi-formation, and how when they would come out of formation they would weave themselves into a spiral as they regrouped. I noticed the leaves as they danced and spiraled around each other on the breeze. I also noticed how the beautiful rare swans in the pond seemed to dance with one another as they spiraled around each other in the water. Then I found myself back in front of the labyrinth without consciously looking for it. I sensed that our last encounter was not yet finished. The rain had stopped and the remains of the day broke through the clouds to shine rays down from on high. Then suddenly and just for a moment, a rainbow shone over the pond. I have no other words to say, except picturesque, peaceful, perfect. To this day, when I need to find my “happy place”, I return to that particular moment. Some people have to create their happy place, I feel blessed in that I have actually been there.

So there I stood at the mouth of the labyrinth, looking fondly upon it like an old friend even though we had just met. This time I did not notice the “errancy” of it not having an exit. All the physical had passed away and only what was important remained. This time no one was around so I felt at liberty to take my time. I looked down at my feet as I stood again at the threshold of the labyrinth. Noticing how the basic design resembles the goddess - Arms stretched out, hair flowing, free form, graceful, captivating. It was as if an ancient time was reaching out to me, waiting for me to take the hand of the ancestors. As before, I took a deep breath, closed my eyes and exhaled, as I took my first step. In the same moment I exhaled, I again said, “ help me, to know you.” I walked the path this time with much expectation and little hesitation. I found myself anticipating unlocking all of the wonders of this newfound tool. I meandered slowly, waiting for it to speak to me again as it did before. As I walked I started to get a feeling of disappointment. The feeling grew as I found my way to the center. Nothing profound happened... no visions, no messages, no lightning bolts, just a big nothing. At this point, I was truly disappointed. Why had I gotten something last time and nothing this time? What did I do wrong? What did I do last time that I didn’t' do this time? My good ole' ego and self-talk kicked in and my mind was full of questions as to why...

As I stood there feeling defeated, I quieted my heart enough to hear two little words... “Thank You”. It was at this moment I had the amazing revelation I was looking for. I remembered how in my last walk I was giving thanks as I left the center and was on my way back out. I had received this same thing last time also but it took me until now to get it all together in my mind. I'm just a little slow sometimes. The lightning bolt that hit me was this, Are you going to be thankful only when you receive something, or are you going to be grateful at all times?

I continued on my path as I gave thanks for receiving, and most of all for not receiving, for just being.

Although my heart was full of gratitude for what I had received, I still wanted more. As the day drew to a close and the sunset, I thought. My lessons were over for the day. Much to my joyful surprise, it wasn’t, and I am thankful!

AL Book - Chapter 1.1

6 circuit Aquarian Labyrinth in Tahoe National Forest at Camp Richards - 2012I know I have been teasing you over the past few weeks in regard to when Chapter one will be released, well wait no more, here it is!

The first chapter of the book I call "First Contact". Below is the first half of that chapter. I named it that because it talks about the first time I encountered a labyrinth. Much like some of you, I had no idea what a labyrinth was or what it could be used for. Once I made that first encounter, I was never the same and I am thankful!

Thank you for wanting to take this journey with me as we discover the Aquarian Labyrinth together. If you have any questions or comments, I would love to hear them! Either leave a comment below or send me a message on Facebook.

Blessed be Dearlings!

Chapter 1.1 – First Contact

I vividly remember my first encounter with a labyrinth, although it was well over 20 years ago. Other than the movie Labyrinth, which had the potential to be a great movie, and the Greek mythology of the Minotaur's labyrinth, which in both cases were actually mazes, I had never heard of nor had I ever seen a labyrinth, much less walked one.

I was living in the Rochester area of upstate New York. I had the opportunity to become acquainted with and take monthly classes at the historical and magical Lilydale. For those who are not familiar with Lilydale, it is a unique closed community associated with the spiritualist church. How I arrived at this place in my life is a very long and convoluted story that I will not bore you with here.

I was on a spiritual quest, but how I began that journey derailed my entire life. Regardless of the past karmic burden, I had brought upon myself, for which I later consciously worked through. I found myself going to monthly classes which were paid for by the generosity of a woman I had met, by chance, in Montana. She was the reason I was in New York. She had invited me to come to live with and help her sort through her life after the passing of her husband. It was a warm and symbiotic relationship that lasted for a while, and it served a purpose for us both.

If you have never been to Lilydale, all I can tell you is that it's majickal, it's beautiful, and the psychic energy is intense, to say the least. It is so majickal in feeling, that when I saw the movie Harry Potter the first time, I had the same feeling as when I would return to Lilydale. Driving through the front gate made me feel like truly arriving home, kind of like how Harry felt when he would return to Hogwarts.

It was at about the third or fourth monthly retreat when I met Sig Lonegren. The first part of his presentation in the morning was about dowsing. How to use a pendulum and dowsing rods as well as uses of dowsing.

I had never heard of dowsing before. Although I had been dowsing since I was twelve or so and didn't know other people did it, or that it had a name. My mother had given me a crystal necklace which I would take off my neck and hold by the silver chain and ask it questions. I shared this ability with a friend once, and when she got answers that she didn't like or that “scared” her, she didn't come over to my house anymore. I guess that's what happens when you have the reputation of being the creepy girl in school.

When I met Sig it was very serendipitous, at least for me. I had made a few cloth card bags in various colors, and I brought several with me that weekend. One of them was blue and I had painted a silver lightning bolt on it. At the time that I painted it, I didn't know why. It was not a symbol that I usually worked with at the time. When I met him, I had a feeling to give him the blue bag. I like to give small tokens to teachers on the path out of respect. I presented him with a choice of three bags. Red, green & blue – he chose the blue one. He then told me he had misplaced his bag before he came on this trip. He found the lightning bolt to be interesting, as this, he claimed, was one of his power symbols. I about fell over.

In the evening after dinner, Sig gave a presentation about labyrinths and crop circles. He did it as a slide-show presentation and most of his emphasis was on labyrinths. The first slide I saw of a Cretan labyrinth had me hooked. I liked his simple and straightforward way of teaching. When he explained that the Cretan is often called the goddess labyrinth, I got very excited, for it was only months before that I had been touched by the goddess and my heart has never been the same... in a good way. He also talked about a goddess or witch that stirred her cauldron in the pattern of the labyrinth. I believe it was Cerridwen, but it's hard to remember from so long ago. If I meet him again I will ask him.

As the slide-show progressed, we were shown a picture of the Chartres Labyrinth, which was built in a cathedral in Chartres France, in the 13th century.

Upon my first viewing of it, I felt a strong connection and I couldn't understand how easily this style of pattern could be created. I felt very intimidated by it. Almost as though it were taunting me, to come to learn, and discover it's lessons and secrets.

Since I have always been working on my self-esteem and doubting my abilities the whole time, I did not see how I could copy it and make it look anywhere near as perfect and beautiful as I saw the Chartres.

Although I found it beautiful, mysterious and perfect in form of appearance, or appearance of form, however, you want to look at it. I had a feeling as I looked at it, that one thing was missing... a continuous path from the center out.

He also talked about ley-lines and how most labyrinths or ancient stone circles have been placed on various important coordinates according to some sacred geometric formula. Ley-lines were a new concept for me, although somehow instinctively I knew this. I started studying chakras and meridians within the body just before this workshop so it all fit well together.

Two of the most important things I learned during that weekend was:

1 – How to draw a 7 circuit Cretan labyrinth, from what is known as a seed pattern

2- The difference between a maze and a labyrinth. A maze is a puzzle that can have multiple paths and even dead endings, where the path of the labyrinth is a walking meditation of a singular path,

A maze is intended to confuse, and to be a puzzle that is solvable, or possibly unsolvable, depending on who made it and how difficult it is. A maze has dead-ends and sometimes loops that bring you right back to the start.

A labyrinth, on the other hand, is a single path. It spirals and meanders it's way eventually to the center, or goal, where one can wait or meditate further. Traditionally you would then follow the same path out the same way you came in. I later found that the path can also continue, to an exit different than the one you came in on, but more on this later. The type of labyrinth I will be talking about in this text is not common. We will be looking at it in-depth, as the main focus of this book. However, I have gotten ahead of myself.

All of the information from Sig that I have mentioned thus far was given in the time frame of one day. This was a lot for me to assimilate. That night I had trouble going to sleep. However, I still woke energized as I tend to do when I sleep at Lilydale.

I am giving away the Aquarian Labyrinth!

I Am Giving It Away!.

I am so grateful for this life I live and the gifts I have been given! Every day is a gift, and every day has become fuller since I discovered the labyrinth pattern I call the Aquarian Labyrinth. since the Aquarian Labyrinth has done so much for my growth, I feel like I want others to experience the amazing feeling of moving forward. So I am going to release my book on my blog, one little section at a time. As you read about what has been given me I hope you too will find Love, Peace, Joy, and Healing at the heart!

I am starting with the Introduction so we can all be on the same page. Below you can read the introduction before the first chapter and I will continue to release half of a chapter per week. You can also buy the book on Amazon by following the link below. Whether you buy the book or just read it here I hope you find it to be an informative, enlightening, entertaining journey, Enjoy!

 


Introduction

What this book is: This book is the story of my personal discovery of the Aquarian Labyrinth. It is a book that introduces something new yet ancient. It is a story that may stretch your perception of the labyrinth and what the traditional patterns have taught you. This is a sharing experience of what I have been shown, and what I have learned through the teaching that has come from walking with my friend the labyrinth and especially the discovery of the new yet ancient Aquarian Labyrinth.

It is basically the meandering ramblings of the inner workings of my mind, and what the labyrinth has placed there while discovering its twisting turning journey.

What this book is not: This book is not a labyrinth history book, nor is it a complete explanation of labyrinths as they are traditionally known. Many authors have covered the labyrinth subject in-depth, and sufficiently enough that I do not feel it necessary to attempt such an undertaking as I am far less qualified on those subjects than the people who have walked before me. (No pun intended)

If you are new to labyrinths I suggest you read other books on labyrinths as well to get a more rounded perspective of the traditional labyrinths of the ancient world. I don't consider this text a suitable introduction to labyrinths. Authors such as Sig Lonegrene, Lauren Artress, and Gayle West have done a fantastic job of covering the introduction and history of traditional labyrinths. I have no desire to redo work that has already been done.

The reason for writing this book is to introduce you, the reader/adventurer, to a new set of patterns that I have discovered and invite you to explore. As such, the majority of the subject matter will refer to these discovered patterns which I call Continuous Path Labyrinths, or Aquarian Labyrinth patterns. Reference to other writings will be made when necessary.

I believe these newly discovered patterns have much to teach us. If we allow for that to manifest. I have experienced many lessons personally. Some I choose to share here, and some I chose to keep private. I encourage you to not only explore the examples I give within this writing but also to go on and explore the patterns for yourself, then you too can choose to share your experiences or keep them to yourself.

To further what this book is not... it is not a book of worldwide maps and locations, although reading such material is fascinating, again, I have found the coverage of this subject to be quite complete, so complete in fact that I have nothing further to contribute, other than a few personal labyrinth locations on Google Earth. If you are interested in Labyrinth sites – Worldwide, may I suggest, going to the Labyrinth Society Website and looking at the World Labyrinth Locator Map where people register their labyrinth locations.

This book was not written or conceived by a professional metaphysicist, geomancer, scientist or archeologist. This book was simply written by someone who believes, a new pattern has come to light. A pattern that may have been overlooked for a long time.

It is not a complete guide on how to set-up or walk a labyrinth. Especially not the "traditional" patterns. I have, however, included a diagram of how to draw a Cretan labyrinth for those new to labyrinths, and for reference to the seed pattern and how changes to that seed pattern resulted in the Aquarian Labyrinth Patterns - ALP's

This book is not a way to convince you to believe the way I do. It is, however, an invitation to examine what you do believe.

What I hope this book is: I hope this book is inspirational to those who read it, and to those who decide to allow the labyrinths of the world to teach and guide them.

I hope this book will open hearts, heal lives and change people for the better, by working with the labyrinth patterns within.

I continue to find something new to learn in the friend and teacher which I have come to know as the Aquarian Labyrinth. I hope you will too!

“Finding Love, Peace, Joy and Healing the heart...”

 Aquarian Labyrinth - The BOOK!! - A New Pattern for a New Age

The New Book is HERE!!!

The Book is Complete!

Over the past 30 years or so, the ancient labyrinth patterns of the world have made a new resurgence. Until 2011 when a new pattern was magically discovered by Llynnette VanHooser. 

After discovering the Aquarian Labyrinth pattern, Llynette has studied it to unlock the hidden treasures with its beautiful twists and turns. 

Now she will take you on a journey of how it was discovered, what it means and how you can create Majik, right in your own backyard!

 

Yes, it took a long time to get the book written and then published. Part of the delay was simply the fact that I had not lived the next chapter yet. So now it is finished and I am so happy to announce that you can purchase it on Amazon by following the link below,

To those who have given initial feedback on the book, Thank you from the bottom of my heart! I appreciate the Amazon feedback as well. I cannot get good ratings on this book without readers so I truly appreciate every book review I receive!

 

If you are interested in learning about the new pattern of the Aquarian Labyrinth, you will want to read my new book that explains its differences from the classic labyrinth patterns as well as its uses as a Healing Tool, Oracle and Wedding Pivot Point. Enjoy the journey.

So What's Next?

Strangely enough, I am planning to give this book away for free! yes! FREE!

Over the next few weeks and months, I will be posting portions of my book for you to read absolutely FREE!

I feel that the message of the Aquarian Labyrinth is a strong message of healing through love and forgiveness. I would like to get this book into every person on the planet. I believe that love is the strongest and most powerful force in the universe. It removes boundaries and makes way for true deep healing.

I want to give this gift to you FREE of charge.

Sign up for future blog posts and you will receive the book incrementally as I release it.  This will also allow you to get updates on future book projects and workshops on the various subjects to be presented by Llynnette  VanHooser, the author of this book - The Aquarian Labyrinth - A New Pattern for a New Age. She is also the author of several websites.

All of her interests and special activities are outlined and highlighted on her main site -

More changes for the Aquarian Labyrinth

The Labyrinth is in constant change and flux as we learn what the labyrinth has to teach us. Part of that flux includes a new phase of the Aquarian Labyrinth and its role as a healing tool. As I grow this site you will see many changes in the labyrinth. The pattern remains the same, however, tactics on how to maintain the labyrinth is a constant battle.

The main upcoming change will be something that was unexpected. As the garden on the property grows, we are learning new ways of dealing with weeds by using sheet mulch (cardboard) and woodchips. Once this process is complete, the entire labyrinth will be fenced in to keep the critters out, and then it will be planted with various healing and majikal herbs.  Trees will also be planted at the four quarters to further add to the majikal energies of this special place that is majikal all by its self.

These herbs will be made available mailorder for majikal purposes.

I look forward to this time although I realize it will take a long time to get it completed. Looking forward to wet weather to make planting easier.

Wish us luck in our endeavors!

Blessee be!
