Adjacent to The Magnolia Manor home, is our labyrinth. This walking path is designed as a meditative journey to facilitate life-changes and healing. On our property, the labyrinth snakes back and forth across the garden, until you reach the center. As you wander along the path, set an intention or take a moment to contemplate your hearts desires. Once you arrive at the center, you may find that the answers from your spirit collide seamlessly with one of the most stunning views on the property.
When we acquired the farm, there were decades worth of bricks that had been scattered throughout the property. We repurposed these bricks to create over 900 linear feet of meditative walking path. We feel this reuse of materials adds to the positive energy the land provides.
WHAT IS A LABYRINTH?
The labyrinth is a walking meditation, a path of prayer and paradigm blueprint where your psyche meets the Spirit. It has only one path that leads from the outer edge, in a circuitous way to the center. There are no tricks to it and no dead ends. Unlike a maze where you lose your way, the labyrinth is a spiritual tool that can help you find your way by following the simple path. The labyrinth is ancient symbol representing your own journey to your center and back into the world again.
SET YOUR INTENTION
Before you start down the labyrinth path it’s important to set your intention. Stand at the beginning of it and close your eyes. Take a deep breath and set an intention and/or ask a question for your journey. Walk the path in silence and listen to the thoughts and feelings that come to you along the way. When you get to the center… pause. Take in your surroundings and breath. Spend as much time as you need before you walk the same path back out. When you get to the end, undoubtedly, the energy you put towards your intention and/or question will provide you with the fuel to see/feel the answers you are searching for.
