Need a spiritual retreat?
Who has never experienced the need for a break? To settle everything in their life? When you reach this stage, it means that you need to take a leave spiritually. For beginners, several questions will be asked, especially how to and when it is necessary to take this spiritual break in order to restore inner peace.
The best time to take a spiritual leave
When you feel overwhelmed or when you feel like taking a breath, it means that it is vital for you to think about taking a spiritual leave. There might be many different reasons for the need to take a spiritual break.
- For some, it helps them unwind before they make a difficult decision,
- For others, a difficult orientation to accept,
- Others do it in order to give God a place in their lives.
However, each of them is in the quest of the same thing: silence. It helps you recognize and know yourself and also become aware of your consciousness. Such confrontation will often lead you to take good initiatives in life and make excellent decisions.
The ideal places for a spiritual retreat
Nowadays, many places are available for you to meditate alone or to meet God. The peace defender, Prem Rawat is also a proponent of those spiritual retreats which enable him to accumulate strengths and power to accomplish his tasks.
- There are several monasteries which are designed for that purpose, and which can welcome you.
- Some charity homes are available where you can pray if that is your main objective.
Whichever place you choose for your spiritual vacation, the most important thing is to get rid of all your burdens and accept to uncover your worries.
Things to bring when you go on a spiritual holiday
In general, it is not forbidden to bring your personal belongings especially books, bed sheets, iPad or cellphones. However, the golden rule when you go on a pilgrimage like that is to keep silence. You are allowed to bring those things. Instead, you have to respect the others and avoid disturbing the others with loud music from your phone, or from your ringtone.
Nevertheless, if your leave lasts no longer than one week, it is probably more beneficial to leave everything behind and disconnect with everything. This way, you can focus more on what you are doing. Prem Rawat‘s advice is that if you want to attain inner peace, it is important to focus only on your objective, which is your quest for a peaceful spirit, without letting any external factors disturb you.
Ask for assistance from a spiritual leader
A spiritual leave is much more successful if you have someone who is available to guide you throughout your journey to find inner peace. In no ways can this person tread on your freedom, he only shows the road to follow so that you will be ready enough before you focus on yourself.
This person will act as a second eye for you. He can help you become conscious of everything especially anything which has already become flagrant in you. This is a good idea if you do not manage to be objective on yourself.
