I have always found travel to be a way for me to connect with my soul. Travelling solo even more so. There was a study done that said people who spend their money on experiences rather than things, are happier. I believe that to be true, as I’m living it. What do people reflect back on in their lives? It’s the experiences they had not the things they acquired.
So here I am on another trip. A solo one this time. One of a spiritual journey as well. I started this journey a few years ago when I begin exploring holistic practices such as reiki and chakras.
It seems that the universe carves out paths for you to take. It’s your choice which one you choose to go on. This trip for me is divine timing. One I didn’t know my soul would need to take when I planned it. Having just ended a job three days before I embarked on this path. It’s the ending of one journey and the start of a new beginning. A way to look at things in a different light.
To mark the beginning of a new journey is my travel to Sedona, Arizona. Being an Energy Healer through many forms, I have been drawn to coming here for some time. The beautiful red rock formations, hiking paths, vortexs, artist village, etc. More than anything though its the energy of this place. Sedona, known as a spiritual mesa of sorts to the world. Its a place where people who are spiritually minded flock to. Myself included. There is an energy draw here that is almost indescribable. It’s one you have to experience to know what I mean. Even just driving up here from Phoenix the enegry felt lighter and it hit me in areas of my body that I am physically struggling with. When I saw the mountains I felt an overwhelming sense of happiness. A contentment like I was at home.
I soon noticed by talking to people here that the majority of them are on a spiritual journey themselves. Whether they come here or live here. I don’t have to preface my comments by saying this might sound weird or odd. People just get it, as they are on a similar path themsleves. It feels freeing to be accepted for who I am and among like-minded people. We all just want to find meaning and purpose in our lives. This is just one place people come to find that in themselves.
Even checking out the local food stores or restaurants its obvious that people have a healthy consciousness. Focusing on eating and living a healthy lifestyle. Lots of vegan and vegetarian restaurants and food in the grocery stores. There is no limit to what you can choose from. Also the number of healthy activities you can partake in is endless. From hiking the trials and/or to the top of the mountain vortexs, meditating, yoga etc. Its a beautiful way of living.
There is a calmness that you feel just being in the presence of nature and the energies here. One that I have only begun to explore. More on that to come…
