Why Travel Is Essential for The Soul

Our souls are meant to evolve and it’s harder to do that when we remain in the one place, in the comfort of our own cultures and traditions, only hearing tales of the way others live but never truly experiencing that for your self.

To truly expand your consciousness and allow your soul to grow, you need to really immerse yourself in other cultures and experience hiker-1149877_960_720the breathtaking magnificence of other places with your own eyes. Life isn’t meant to be lived from behind a screen, it is meant to be experienced in person. The highs and the lows, the ups and the downs, we need to feel and witness everything first hand if we really want our complete selves to grow.

It’s all well and good you might say, you don’t have the time or the money to see places. You have too many commitments or you’ll have time for travelling in a few years time, once everything’s quietened down a little.

These are all the excuses you use to stop yourself from going places. You should travel as often as you can and as far as you can afford to go. Got kids? Awesome, what kids don’t love the adventure of seeing some place new? How much will they benefit from seeing new places and understanding that everyone lives their lives slightly different?

At the end of the day, it is only you that is stopping you from travelling, all you need to do is make up your mind and go somewhere. Even if it’s just the next state! You’d be surprised however, how affordable travelling has become with increased competition – your dollar can get you a lot further than you think.

There are many reasons to travel, you’ll invent your own and everyone describes the feeling a little differently. However, keep in mind the next time you put it off, that these are the kinds of things you’re missing out on….
