Fire is a dangerous thing to be around. Yes. But it’s also one of the five inevitable elements of nature that sustains life on our planet. For some people, fire fascinates, so much so that they walk over it and challenge it. No it ain’t as foolish as we think. Firewalking is an experience that many people voluntarily sign up for–to improve certain aspects of their lives. Let’s take a sneak-peek into it:
When someone attempts firewalking, he/she is taking charge of their own life. And remember, no one is ever forced to firewalk. And that in itself points to taking responsibility for oneself. It not only creates a sense of responsibility with a person with regards to the way they physically feel the fire beneath their feet, but also the way they think, the choices they make and the paths they choose to travel down. It also reminds you that you are, after all, the master of your own life.
We can all agree on the fact that there will be no growth if you’re in your comfort zone. Firewalking, for one, is truly an experience that pushes you over the edge–from the comforts of your life. After firewalking, you might even acquire a new sense of clarity and direction for your life. And this will definitely help you break bad habits and fill your life with more freedom and decisiveness.
Firewalking isn’t something that everyone ventures into. Questions of doubt and uncertainty might fill your mind before you do it. But once you accomplish firewalking, you’ll observe something has shifted in you. Your self-confidence is renewed and strengthened and your perspectives change. Now that’s the kind of values we always yearn to add to our loves, isn’t it?
By stimulating connections, we mean renewing the connections a person has with himself/herself and others around him/her. Firewalking events are usually held at gatherings–of family, friends, coworkers or even strangers who set out to walk the fire together. There is fear, vulnerability, empathy and uncertainty surrounding this fascinating act and that creates a sense of connection between the onlookers and the participants. A truly transformative experience indeed!
If you’re one of those people looking forward to a transformative experience, firewalking is the perfect option for you. Let us know in the comments if we’ve moved you.
