I promise you won’t get lost!
Walking a labyrinth may sound like a strange thing to do, but for me after my initial thoughts of “Oh my gosh, do I really want to waste my time walking around this thing?” Or, “Do I look totally silly following a path of rocks or lines on the ground?” I have found it to be a great way to center my thoughts and reflections as I slowly walk the twisted circle outlined in front of me.
The labyrinth is an ancient meditation tool …
to find your center and reclaim your thoughts and feelings.
How do I do it?
Well, you won’t get lost because it’s not a maze. There is a clear path to follow that takes you through 4 quadrants to the center and back out again. As you get ready to start, you might want to try one of these things:
- Ask God a question as you start and listen for His answer as you walk through the labyrinth.
- Take your burdens to God as you go in and leave them in the center. Walk with freedom and thankfulness as you walk out. Perhaps carry a stone or object to leave in the center to symbolize what you’re leaving behind.
- Recite a prayer as you go or maybe a different one for each quadrant you walk through.
- Use it as time for introspection, to let go of anxiety, or to stimulate your creative thinking.
Okay, I want to try it now. Where can I find one?
Funny you should ask! There is a website that lists many of them:
You can also find them by searching for “Labyrinth near me.” Good luck and happy meandering!
