A labyrinth is an ancient symbol of wholeness. It combines the imagery of the circle and the spiral into a meandering but purposeful path. The Labyrinth represents a journey to our own center and back again out into the world. Labyrinths have long been used as meditation and prayer tools.
The Mindful Journey Mala necklace features a combination of 108 natural wood, unakite, and carnelian. The beads are the smaller 6mm size and the necklace is finished with a double-sided 1-inch copper labyrinth pendant.
Carnelian gives courage, promotes positive life choices, dispels apathy, and motivates for success and other matters. Jasper brings courage to get to grips with problems assertively and encourages honesty with yourself.
Unakite is said to lift your spirits when you are feeling down, this is the gemstone to help you see the beauty in life. Unakite is a stone of visions, it balances emotions with spirituality.
One of the most famous labyrinths remaining in the world is at the Chartres Cathedral near Paris, France. The labyrinth at Chartres was built around 1200 A.D. and is laid into the floor (see image). At the center of the labyrinth is a rosette design that has a deep spiritual symbolic value including that of enlightenment.
In historical times the labyrinth could be walked as a pilgrimage and/or for repentance. As a pilgrimage, it was a questing, searching journey with the hope of becoming closer to God. When used for repentance the pilgrims would walk on their knees.
