GHR 2020 Q4: Vision/Action

Global Healing Response Quarterly

2020 Theme: Vision

“Feet sandaled with dreams tread paths of vision leading to
wisdom’s sharp peaks.”— Aberjhani (The River of Winged Dreams)

October-November-December

Focus:  Action

Quote: “Vision without action is a dream. Action without vision is simply passing the time. Action with Vision is making a positive difference.” —Joel Barker

Picture/Symbol: A giant leap

Prayer/Meditation:

With each step and breath, let me peacefully root myself in this world in such a way that chaos only blows through me and does not knock me off center.

Let this rooted space become a tender place to manifest visions so they may evolve into actions that transform one person or millions. I know that in the scope of eternity, every action has importance.

I might move toward my dreams with baby steps, but I will have the courage and faith to take a giant leap when needed.

I will act first with self-care,
then care for loved ones, my community and our world with the intention of creating circles of love that ripple through the universe.

Ideas for benefiting organization: Is there an organization in your community that has taken action to solve a problem? Supporting their courage and commitment might illuminate their achievements.

Ideas for ambiance: Encourage participants to walk at a different pace then they usually do— faster or slower. Tell them it’s ok to move in different ways. Spin around, hop, dance. Let them know it’s ok to shift things around and sometimes the shift helps move us forward.

GHR 2020 Q3: Vision/Dream

Global Healing Resource Quarterly

Dear labyrinth friends,

As this ever changing Covid19 pandemic ravages our world (especially the US) and racial tensions abound globally there is NO better time for our work with the labyrinth to help us see and feel how we can live in this world safely and peacefully. It’s time to dream of what can be—What we can extract from these tragedies and grow to be better. I, again, urge you to create circles of loving intention and connection to provide support for you and also to send powerful amplified energy out into the world. It WILL make a difference. Click here for materials that will help you create your own circle. Whether you are walking an outdoor labyrinth (alone or with social distancing) or using a finger labyrinth we can harness the peace and insights we feel from those activities and unite them with other’s energy. Never underestimate the power of the labyrinth and unified healing!

Peace & Healing,

Ellen Bintz Meuch

The Circle Prayer
In this ever-changing world, we come together in unity to send love and light to the virus, the people affected, and their loved ones.
May our Unity grow as we learn, celebrate, and hold each world culture sacred. 
We ask for understanding, acceptance, and appreciation at a global level as well as healing.
May the power created within this circle lift the spirits of those that need it and protect us and our loved ones.
We ask for strength from our higher power and the universe for we know that we will come out of this stronger as a human race. —Jessica Conte

Ideas for benefiting organization: Organizations in your area that are serving the needs of Covid19 such as food pantries, PPE providers, family crisis centers.

Ideas for ambiance: Since these walks will probably be alone, holding a candle, photograph or the prayer above. If you are using a finger labyrinth light a candle before you start.

GHR 2020 Q1: Vision/Insight

Global Healing Resource Quarterly

2020 Theme: Vision

“Feet sandaled with dreams tread paths of vision leading to wisdom’s sharp peaks.” — Aberjhani (The River of Winged Dreams)

January-February-March

Focus: Insight

Quote: “Your vision will become clear only when you look into your own heart. Who looks outside dreams; who looks inside, awakes.”— Carl Jung

Picture/symbol: The Heart-where we can go to get insight into our dreams, blocks, history and future.

Prayer/Meditation:

 I breath into my heart to allow the vision my soul dares to create to come forth.
I glance in the rearview mirror of my life with grace and forgiveness
—To clear the path of the wreckage of my past
—To allow my lessons learned to serve as the lampposts that light the way to the future.
I look for my blind spots
—By allowing and asking others to… show me
—By being honest with myself
I watch for the obstacles keeping me from creating my vision
—That I use as excuses
—That no longer serve me
—That I can resolve
I see
—The Hope
—The Love
—The Possibilities
I create and honor the path, more clearly, I am being called to follow.
Ellen Bintz Meuch
