Where is the best place for me to connect with higher self and be open to guidance? After our walk in the Collins-Stephenson Prairie that seemed like a good place. It was cool, secluded, had a sweet aroma and gentle sound of grasses in the light breeze. I have always loved the Hanging Bog west of Cedar Rapids and near the River and felt from the first time I stepped into the preserve that is was a holy and spiritual place.
Then, I was in The 1080 Laughing Labyrinth. I didn’t think, “Oh, the labyrinth might be nice.” I simply was there on the limestone bench I built earlier this summer.
At first, I cried a bit and was somewhat unnerved and then was at peace. Images floated past. Some thoughts of “It is OK to…but you do not have to.” And a few clear “instructions”, if you will, emerged. Certain people to contact. Certain ways to be. Restored confidence to keep building. Balance and harmony in the chakras. Then, the guardian kissed me on the forehead and cheeks, laughed with me, merged into me and I walked out and back into the sunshine with a “Thank You” in my heart and on my lips.
