In this article, you’ll be asked to consider Reiki from a sometimes overlooked viewpoint being instead of emitting from your hand let’s consider focusing upon Reiki from our feet. Furthermore, let’s consider Reiki emitting from your feet, while earthing. Earthing is intentionally grounding/communing with Mother Earth. It is a practice that has accumulative benefits when done regularly which include enhancing your energy, helping with stress relief, improving bone density, reducing risks of heart disease/stroke, strengthening the immune system, quickening healing with Reiki, developing/sustaining a relationship with Nature and Mother Earth, just to name a few.
We can even make earthing more Spiritually aligned/energizing by mindfully practicing this sacred ritual upon a labyrinth. Simply by walking the labyrinth in bare feet.
It is because labyrinths serve as a literal walking prayer/meditation activity. Physically completing a walking circuit (entering/exiting) upon a labyrinth is equivalent to going within self to encounter your Divine presence. It is a Spiritual pilgrimage.
Walking a labyrinth is an ancient exercise of countless faiths for Spiritual contemplation. Entering the sacred path of a labyrinth, slowly walk and still your mind, focusing upon any spiritual queries, any mantra of choice, or focusing upon gratitude. This is why earthing while walking a labyrinth is both a powerful healing experience and a metaphysical practice that needs to be experienced, to fully grasp and appreciate its full range of benefits. While Reiki is activated while earthing upon a sacred geometric formation like a labyrinth embedded or carved upon the surface of Mother Earth. We are working with Spiritual energies of self, Mother Earth and Universe. Serving as a sojourner of birth-death-rebirth and the healing of the aforementioned. In addition to serving as eco-friendly art and a community-building hub, for sacred events and gatherings
Every city/town has at least one publicly accessible labyrinth (even is on private property with the owners’ permission.) To find the nearest labyrinth to you (or one situated in an environment preferred), use this worldwide labyrinth locator via: labyrinthlocator.com
To experience the many levels of benefits accrued to labyrinth walking along with activated Reiki here are some general tips:
- Upon entering a labyrinth relax, activate Reiki, open your mind, and stay in the moment.
- Upon reaching the center of the labyrinth, take time to reflect upon your life, and use any Reiki sacred symbols you feel moved to utilize in this sacred space, (if space allows, perform self Reiki, or give someone a mini-healing facilitation session).
- When ready, keep Reiki activated and start your journey back on the same path leading back to the exit/entrance.
- When you exit feel into the experience more with prayer, gratitude, or journaling.
