Could the Firewalk Change Your Life?

Article by Lindsey Agness

 Imagine a stunning retreat called Lendrick Lodge at the side of a loch and crisp frosty weather and you start to get close to the setting for our firewalk last weekend.

Take yourself back to the moment you walked on fire

 The firewalk is an amazing metaphor for change.  If you take something that you used to believe was impossible and you do it then you reframe all the other challenges in your life that you believe are impossible.  It’s also a great resource anchor when you need to dig deep inside yourself to deal with a tough scenario.  You take yourself back to the moment you walked on fire and think to yourself ‘If I can walk on fire I can deal with this challenging conversation with my boss’ or whatever it may be. 

Age with Attitude

age with attitude firewalk imageThere were 9 of us firewalking on Saturday.  All women on my Age with Attitude development programme.  I told them that every so often each one of us has a square centimetre of opportunity and this was one of theirs.  I also reassured them that it’s also normal to feel fear – the important thing is to work through it.  We built the fire together and lit it and waited for the coals to die down.  At 9pm it was time to walk.  There was an excited nervousness of the group as we made our way to the fire.  Everyone knew exactly what they were walking for – whether it be good health, a new career or financial abundance.  A drummer at the fireside helped to build the energy and I was surprised how quickly the group walked.  Tentatively at first, then walking together hand in hand over the hot coals.  It felt nice to come off of the fire and squidge our feet into the cold wet mud around the fire.  We returned to Lendrick for our treat – chocolate cake and cream.  It was indeed a magical evening.

The next morning I was woken up by the sound of joyful laughter outside of my bedroom window.  I noticed it was 7am.  I got up and looked out of the window to see my group up early and off to see the sun-rise.  The fire had weaved its magic again.
