The origins of the labyrinth pattern is unknown. The pattern is an archetypal form that is found around the world and they date back 4000 to 5000 years. Only now is acceptance of using this pattern of movement growing as we discover the benefits which includes improved well-being, increased connection in reflection, meditation, realignment and self knowledge. These benefits have been experienced from walking, drawing or tracing a finger labyrinths.
Two popular designs are the Classical or 7 Circuit and the 11 Circuit Labyrinths.
The 7 circuit labyrinth supports a relaxed, calm and outgoing attitude and brings the walk into the present with more alertness. You may choose to walk a 7 circuit labyrinth prior to an important business meeting, personal appointment, or when making decisions.
The 11 circuit labyrinth is a more elaborate patter and is effective for deepening personal reflections and contemplation. The pattern supports balancing the right and left sides of the brain and energy centers of the body. It can support quieting the mind for clearer insights and inner guidance. You may choose to walk an 11 circuit labyrinth when you are making personal change, resolving conflict, making important decision in relationships or at work.
