  2. If you knew exactly what it was about them that made you so phobic, perhaps you could pin a better word to your fear. But keep in mind that to be afraid of something isn’t necessarily to be phobic of something.
    I think it’s okay to simply say you are phobic about fortunetellers. But, as another person stated, Wiccaphobia may be as close as you get. And it’s actually a real word. Rhabdophobia is the fear of magic and the paranormal… and the fear of being beaten with rods. I’m not sure how those two got combined, however.

Meditation and Labyrinths

Some people confuse labyrinths with mazes, but it's not a maze. It is more of a meditation that is in walking form. Let me explain.

The key is to take slow steps and just walk towards the center; taking your time and following your breath.

The Methods Of Zen Meditation
