Haleakala National Park, Hawaii - Spirit Of The Sun For A Warm Embrace
Watching the sunrise in Maui’s Haleakala National Park is a true sight to behold, and is one that should be experienced by everyone. As you may know, the word, ‘’Haleakala’’ translates to “house of the sun,” and it’s believed that hiking to the summit of the dormant volcano that resides there enables an enlightened mind and experience like no other. As the legend goes, the demigod Maui lassoed the sun during its journey across the sky as he stood atop the volcano’s summit, slowing its descent, so that the day would last longer. Ever since, as the sun peeks over the horizon, a multitude of colours and light can be seen during sunrises. What’s more, according to Harmonious Earth, “The Haleakala Volcano on Maui matches the Schumann Resonance at 7.8 cycles per second, the same resonance of our hearts and the natural state of Earth.” Enhancing the natural rhythms of our mind, body and spirit, and amplifying the clarity required for true peace and understanding, your spiritual awakening will make this sacred site even more holy.
Mount Fuji – Japan - Release The Fire From Within
Surrounded by beautiful Japanese mythology, spiritual seekers can find much in the way of meditation and traditional pilgrimages at this sacred site. It’s said that the goddess Konohanasakuya-Hime - who is represented by a Sakura’s flower - is the deity of volcanoes and mountains, and that after Mount Fuji erupted in the 8th century, she gave birth to three children infused with fire. It’s for this reason that Mount Fuji has a number of sanctuaries devoted to the goddess and all delicate life, in the hope that it will appease her, and ensure her children never release the fire that is contained within.
Today, you can take the same spiritual trip that Shinto and Buddhist monks have done for centuries. The road to the Komitake Shinto Shrine can be a test of willpower and strength, but the beautiful views that can be seen from Japan’s highest mountain are breathtaking, and show how every test has its reward. Nothing in life worth having is easy, but this trek teaches every individual the importance of hard work, determination and love and belief in oneself. Meditation is always welcome, as is appreciation for the natural surroundings.
Sanctuary of Apollo, Greece - Psychics From The Start
If you’re looking to connect with some of the oldest psychic readers to ever have walked this earth, then a spiritual holiday to Greece is a must. The Sanctuary of Apollo, in Delphi, dates back to approximately 1500 B.C. and was home to the renowned Oracle, who was consulted for key decisions by those in high power. She would drink for a sacred spring and chew laurel leaves before taking her seat at the temple, and while in a psychic trance, would hear and respond to the questions put to her. Today, this devine energy flows throughout, and is enhanced by nearby Mount Parnassus, where nature and spiritual awakenings come alive.
