I am appreciating that one of the very first labyrinths I walked in this life was here at THE labyrinth of Chartres Cathedral, France. What a journey ~ then and now.
BLESSING ALL THE JOURNEYS ~ withIN and around us all. ♥
“IT’S ALL SACRED……”
June 1, 2013 marked the one year anniversary of this beautiful blessed moment. The expansive realization I received here ~~ as light from the cathedral’s window cascaded upon me ~~~ was “IT’S ALL SACRED……”
I had traveled across the world to walk ancient paths and experience sacred sites on a Divine Feminine, spirit connecting, heart-expanding and soul deepening journey….
It was a complete and extraordinary experience in so many vast, indescribable ways… A year has still not been enough time for me to understand and assimilate it all… And yet, the sweetness of this moment stands above and apart from it all…… as it was purely my own inner knowing and guidance from beyond the veil of this world.
I heard within me the stirrings of a light, amused, wise voice saying…. “Yes, all these places are wondrous ~ cathedrals, grottos, pilgrims paths…. Now you know they are all within you. This beauty, this grace, this connection to oneness…. is always there, and it is everywhere you will ever be. You needn’t seek out marvelous cathedrals of stained glass windows… You can and you will relish the beauty; but know this….. you know this now…..
IT’S ALL SACRED.”
This moment came after arriving at the center of the labyrinth at Chartres Cathedral. I was filled with reassurance and a deeper sweeter confidence in my own inner guidance. Indeed I had walked into my own center within. Upon walking out of the labyrinth, a light had genuinely and physically infused me as the sunlight shining through the magnificent stained glass window at the front of the cathedral beamed down upon me, directly on my forehead.
It remains a deeply sacred experience.
