The Labyrinth as a Spiritual Tool.

A labyrinth is an archetype with which we can have a direct experience. We can walk it. It is a metaphor for life’s journey. It is a symbol that creates a sacred space which leads us into its heart, then back out again along the same path. Although one is able to cross the lines at any time, we are compelled to follow the meandering path to the centre and back again.

Before leaving I walked the labyrinth under a blue sky to ask for clarity on a cloudy issue.

The Labyrinth represents both a journey to our own centre and back out again into the world... at the same time as acting as a metaphor for the path we walk throughout our lives.

My answer, by the time I stepped into the center, came in the shape of four qualities I must practice applying to my concern. . .

There is no getting lost in a Labyrinth. Rather, one is offered a path that weaves back and forth, in and out, until it ends in a central circular area. Here, walkers pause to reflect before departing as they came, carrying back wisdom gained on the inbound journey.
