Let your fingers do the walking!

A labyrinth is a magical single path maze. A maze has many paths and is essentially a left-brain puzzle. A labyrinth is a right-brain intuition and creativity enhancer. Let the labyrinth answer your questions and bring you peace.


Below is a fun, "hand drawn" finger labyrinth. Walk it with your curser or print out this page and walk it with your finger. The numbers and colors represent the 7 chakras of the body. In walking a labyrinth, you actually begin on the 3rd chakra (yellow), the solar plexus, "I think" . Then your proceed to the 2nd, pelvic chakra (orange), "I feel". Your next path is the 1st chakra (red), "I am". Then on to the 4th charka (green), "I love", the 7th chakra (indigo), "I am more!", the 6th chakra (violet), "I see", the 5th chakra (blue), "I speak" and finally to the center (pink), "I listen".

LABYRINTHS: The universal mystical meaning of the labyrinth form is as a symbol for the journey into the world of spirit and the return, a leaving of one state and a rebirth into another.

The Classical Seven-path Labyrinth is not a maze within which to get lost, but rather a single winding pathway in and out again.

Labyrinths are known as sacred gateways and have been found at ancient sites around the world. Often found at the center of subtle earth energies these temples enhance, balance, and regenerate both the auric field and the Earth itself.

Labyrinths have been associated with ancient pilgrimage routes and rituals of self-discovery. They were worn as a form of protection and ornamentation and were often carved on doorways to bless a dwelling.

Labyrinths are time windows, portals where time stands still. They confirm our unity with the cosmos, awaken our vital force, and elevate our consciousness. They are known to facilitate altered states of consciousness and have parallels with reincarnation, initiation, prosperity, and fertility rites.

The Classical Seven-path Labyrinth resonates with the vibration of "seven" and has a direct correlation with the primary Chakras, Tones in the scale, and colors of the rainbow. It is believed that the action of "dancing" a labyrinth magically activates its inherit powers!

The Labyrinth is equated with the brain, and many cultures believe that the Labyrinth could cure illness. The action of moving through the Labyrinth produces a sense of well-being and balance through a type of vestibular stimulation, accessing both left and right hemispheres of the brain.

The traveler Weary from the road...
pauses...
On the journey of spirit...
the journey of mind...
the journey of soul...
The labyrinth
Calming...
Soothing...
Refreshes his heart...
Breathes life into his being...
Sated -
but only for a brief time..
as the journey...
ever onward..
begins anew.

Thank your for the peace of spirit, heart, mind, and soul you preserve for others!
