A Beautiful, Gentle Place

I'm afraid I'm not very disciplined, so rituals in my life are driven mostly by challenging circumstances. There was a time some years ago, for example, when I was caught up in a great deal of emotional turbulence around departing relationships. After talking with a psychic, I learned every night before sleep to open myself entirely to the universe and RECEIVE. The energy would flow in and even on the darkest days supported me. I do walk labyrinths from time to time as a way of clearing away the mind debris, often when a decision needs to be made. I have one near my home. It's behind a church in a sheltered area next to a daycare center. The path is lined with shells and bits of colored glass. There is a fir tree growing up at one place in the path! A beautiful, gentle place.
