Why Visit a Sacred Site

Research has shown that there is a definite trend away from taking annual vacations to do nothing but lie on a beach and relax while sipping cocktails. While there’s nothing wrong with this, increasingly as people awaken and become more aware of the natural world, there is a stronger desire to enrich the soul by visiting sacred sites. 

There are many energetically powerful places around the world that offer spiritual experiences and religious pilgrimages which help visitors to find more meaning in their lives. For example, many sacred shrines and temples hold healing energies because they are visited by thousands of people who use them for meditation and prayer, and have also been visited and blessed by saints and holy people. It is common to hear of miracles occurring at such sites.

Nature itself provides an abundance of healing energies and vortexes in certain destinations, many of which are well known. Mysteries surround places like Sedona in the USA, Lake Titicaca in Peru, Mt Kailash in Tibet and Uluru in Australia, to name a few. The extraordinary energies that exist in these places can lead to highly significant experiences for an individual who becomes aligned with their energies, with many life-changing results having been reported. They bring heaven and earth closer together and visiting them offers an easier way to connect with the inner self.

However, any place can offer an allure because of a specific personal attraction. This could be because of a known ancestral or past life experience there or just something about it that draws a person’s attention for no obvious reason. We all have unconscious memories, so the places we develop a desire to visit can be quite outside of our awareness, we just know the pull is strong. 

You don’t have to walk the Camino to have a personal pilgrimage (although I can recommend this, having done it myself). It’s just a matter of visiting somewhere that has a personal significance for you, and you can have that life-changing experience by just following your own intuition.

The important thing is that you go to where you are drawn, you connect with the higher consciousness of this physical place, and draw from it the wisdom and energy that it offers. Travelling to a sacred site is a special experience and guaranteed to provide a deeper insight into your spiritual purpose and offer the peace and fulfillment we all crave.

Time is an Illusion

Have you ever noticed yourself saying “I don’t have time”?

I know I used to do that constantly. It seemed like there were never enough hours in the day to go to work, spend time with family, do stuff for myself and still have energy left over. I felt like a mouse on one of those spinning wheel things.

Then it all changed.

I began to realise that time is an illusion and if want to we can bend it. I’m sure you’ve experienced an exciting day in your life when 8 or 9 hours slipped past and it felt like only one hour. Or perhaps when you were looking forward to something, the days and hours seemed to drag on forever before the event was there. Time is all relative, hence Einstein’s theory of relativity.

Einstein believed that everything happens simultaneously and if you were to have a rocket ship that could travel at the speed of light you would experience past, present and future all at once, as opposed to someone who’s just standing on the ground.

But obviously we don’t have a rocket ship – however we do have our consciousness.

It is possible to time travel to the past, present and future by expanding your consciousness. You can then see quite clearly every experience you’ve had and will have and can relate these experiences to what’s happening now.

I know people say, “what’s the point of seeing past lives, they’re in the past, all that matters is the present”.

I agree with that, because all we have is the now, but past and future are all part of it. So it’s really pointless to dwell on the past and obsess about the future because we’ve already created them and are living them simultaneously.

However, most people don’t have the ability to consciously see everything happening at once, so this is where travelling within our minds to the past or future can explain and clear things that are blocking the now from happening the way we want them to.

As far as not having enough time in a day, if you have lots of things you have to get done, just ask for more time. Just ask, set intentions and the universe will provide. You’ll be amazed how much you can achieve and when you look at your watch you’ll think that time must have stood still for a while.

Like I said – time is an illusion.
