"For 3,000 years before the birth of Christ, frankincense was more valuable than gold. Its sweet smelling aromatic smoke was treasured by Pharaohs and Caesars, and their insatiable demand for frankincense created a trade route from the southern coast of Oman to the Holy Lands. Vast camel caravans carried thousands of tons of frankincense over tribal lands - known today as Oman, Yemen, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Egypt, Israel and Palestine." (Reference)
The surface of the Earth holds subtle health-boosting energy. All we have to do is touch it and become truly alive. In the documentary film Grounded, you can see this amazing phenomenon transform the life of people who had been struggling with health issues like chronic pain, and one man who had been wheelchair-bound for decades is able to walk again.
Even plants are drastically impacted when they are taken away from the Earth’s natural energy. Yet, the act of grounding, or Earthing, as it’s sometimes called, isn’t really an unusual phenomenon at all. It’s actually a natural act that virtually every living creature does instinctively.
Labyrinths are located all over the world. Labyrinths are known to be used in many cultures as a tool for meditation, centering and healing. It has been said that labyrinth is a path of prayer for all people seeking the Divine, regardless of the particular tradition in which one stands. The winding path is a metaphor for the journey to the center of our deeper self and back out into the world with a broadened understanding of who we are from a spiritual stand point.
Here is a short video of a guided walk through the history and mystery of the meditative labyrinth at Edgar Cayces A.R.E. in Virginia Beach, Va.
