Spiritual connection is made stronger when you have a special place in nature to go to. Connecting with nature is extremely important. It is very healing and when you find your spirit spot it is even more healing.
For everyone it is different. Some people connect during a hike in the woods (not me). Some people connect at the lake. Some people connect in the mountains. Some even connect in their garden. My nature spot is the beach. Not a “Panama City on Spring Break” type of beach, more like alone on a secluded beach in Bali.
When I am sitting alone on the beach, toes in the sand with the tide washing just over them, staring out at the endless water, I feel extremely connected spiritually. Things suddenly make sense. I feel peace and comfort. I feel like I can have direct communication with God. Things that were weighing me down suddenly seem unimportant when I stare at the beautiful sea. Sometimes I wish I could swim into the endless sea and live there. Maybe this is why I love mermaids so much.
If you don’t have a spirit spot, try to notice when you are in nature if you feel the way that I just described. Where do you feel alive? Pay attention to this because your spirit spot is going to be an important element in your life. If you do know what your spirit spot is, go there as often as possible, and spend a few hours spiritually connecting and clearing your head. Even if your spot is inaccessible at the moment, find the closest thing to it as possible. For example, when I can’t make it to a secluded beach in Bali (which, let’s face it, is most of the time), I take the F train straight to Coney Island. It’s pretty crazy there, but it’s a beach.
So find your spirit spot, and use your spirit spot. I can’t give justice to the experience in words, but when you find it, you’ll know.
