Top Spiritual Places and Practices to Recharge Yourself

To finding peace and recharging your batteries!

We never cease to strive for and find meaning, balance, and peace in life. Now and then we crave to get away from our everyday working schedule, we need a break to recharge. Most of us want to go away to new, unfamiliar places. Destinations that take away our attention from everyday problems, and our monotonous, never-ending cycles. Because our soul remembers its infinite nature, and our worldly experience is trying to crush our souls by never-ending monotony.

Travelling is the best way to discover new cultures, experiences, something that resonates with what we are truly searching for, and meant to find. So many of us prefer to travel, and get away from our lives whenever we can, not only to switch off and regain balance in our lives but to touch that sacred space within we completely forgot to connect with. Except if you regularly meditate or do something similar, and you connect with a space your soul has been craving.

If you don’t have a chance to travel, especially since COVID restrictions, the mayhem, and additional costs, you should use every chance you can to practice, and rebond with yourself. In my experience, the following three practices are best to achieve similar results and to give you the energy boost to go on and tackle everyday challenges.

1. Meditation

Everyone has tried meditation, but not many do it regularly. It could be one of the closest experiences to travel. Only, you do it in your mind, that could affect you more positively than travel. It is inevitable to touch base with our spirit in today’s hectic world! No matter if you choose mindfulness meditation to be fully present with your thoughts, guided, transcendental, chakra, vipassana, loving-kindness, or yoga meditation, they can help you find your centre again.

2. Bioresonance

If paired with meditation, or relaxation, it can help you travel to faraway places. Even further than some of the most distant physical destinations would allow. It can be a very relaxing way to switch off, and completely rebalance yourself. You need to be patient, and allow enough time to fully relax into it. Taking regular bioresonance treatments could reharmonize all your body and mental imbalances.

It helps to reset your organs on their normal frequency in holistic or complementary medicine. The machine, connected through wires to your body, measures its frequency of energy wavelengths. These measures can help diagnose, and treat disease. Since it is a very fine but effective energy treatment, the best results come after repetition.

3. Yoga

Only as much as a 15-minute dynamic yoga practice and stretching daily can do magic for you. It will help you switch off from your daily fast-paced and even stressful routine, renew your cells by giving them sufficient oxygen and strengthen you inside out. By making it a habit to integrate that 15 minutes into your daily work schedule, no matter how busy you are, you train your body and mind to focus better, and not to forget to take care of yourself as well.
