Walking the Labyrinth

May 1st, 2014 | Posted in Garden Plans, Nature, Sculpture | 0 Comments |

Walking the Labyrinth: the path to the center and out again.

… a metaphor for the journey of life

A practitioner of healing arts in multiple alternative modalities Merry Witty’s focus, and dreams for people, is that they receive healing and understanding in many areas beyond the physical, to assist and move well beyond traditional limitations.

By restoring balance and homeostasis, each person can live in the fullness of their life, dreams and health: creating healing of body, mind, spirit and soul. With balance, freedom of movement, and abundant health, people have more choice. Choice is Freedom, Freedom Leads to Liberty.

More about the journey than the destination, about being rather than doing, walking the Labyrinth is a metaphor for the journey of life. Once one commits to life and walking the path, the path itself does the powerful work of Divine Transformation.

Labyrinths are great for brain Integration, lowering blood pressure, and just quieting the mind and emotions. As an archetype for the sacred journey of life, the labyrinth has no equal in spiritual practice.

The Three Stages of Walking

Purigation (Releasing): As you walk the path to the center there is a releasing, a letting go of the details of your life. This is the act of shedding thoughts, distractions, worry, judgement,  distress and more. A time to open your heart and quiet your mind.

Illumination  (Receiving): When you reach the center, stay there as long as you like. The center rose is a place of meditation and prayer. Receive what is there for you to receive.

Union (Returning): When you leave the center, following the same path out as you came in, you enter the third stage,  the stage of joining God, Spirit, The Divine, The Creator, at work in the world. Each time you walk the labyrinth you become more empowered to find and do the work your soul is seeking.
