This exquisite medium sized handmade finger labyrinth is a tool for meditation, mindfulness, prayer and awakening.
The labyrinth is a meditation. A path of prayer and an archetypal blueprint where psyche meets Spirit. The Finger Labyrinth quiets the mind, opens the heart and grounds the body. This ancient meditation tool will provide the much needed invitation to engage in a moment of mindfulness and awakening. The labyrinth will help ground and still the minds persistent chatter, focus thoughts, reduce anxiety, and become a source of solace.
How to use this beautiful tool made by Calvin:
Choose a quiet place where you can focus and “walk” your finger labyrinth without being disturbed. This will be your sacred space. Before you start your “walk,” take time to breathe and relax. Ask a question for insight, guidance or say a prayer, if you like, for support and healing. Place the index finger from your non-dominant hand at the entrance to the labyrinth. Research shows that our non-dominant hand has easier access to our intuition.
As you trace the circuit, stay open to whatever presents itself: feelings, sensations, memories, images, or just knowings. Pause at any time to breathe, be with a memory, work with an image, or simply relax into the labyrinth. At the center of the labyrinth, feel its connection to your own center. The center is a wonderful place to relax, pray, or sing. When you are ready, trace your way out, staying open to whatever comes up for you.
When your walk is done, place both hands on the labyrinth and give thanks for whatever you learned and experienced. If you keep a journal, have it ready for recording any insights after you finish.
The most important thing to remember is there is no right or wrong way to walk the labyrinth. As you enter the sacred space of the labyrinth, just be yourself. Open your mind and your heart and receive the richness that may come from your journey on the labyrinth.
