U.S, Canada, New Zealand, and Australia named to be the top destinations for adventure and healing

Sedona, Northern Arizona.

According to findings from Psychic Sofa, Sedona in Northern Arizona is one of the most popular destinations around the world, which tourists visit due to its ability to heal people spiritually.

Wanderlusters are looking to book a life-changing adventure that allows them to experience culture and authentic food on a new level, especially as most of us have been unable to travel abroad for a whole year. However, when it comes to booking a holiday outside of the UK, Europe or U.S , we have a tendency to browse destinations that allow us to relax and unwind at the beach or pool. In comparison, others crave something more adventurous, which will enable them to grow spiritually and reconnect with people, and themselves.

According to findings from Psychic Sofa, Sedona in Northern Arizona is one of the most popular destinations around the world, which tourists visit due to its ability to heal people spiritually. The energy vortex found there enhances mediation and can deepen your relationship with your soul. At Michigan's Mackinac Islands, however, calming lake waters, and scenic mountain views allow people to absorb powerful forms of energy so they can relax and connect with nature. Other destinations that are popular to visit in the U.S. are based in Northern California, Arizona, and Oregon. Mount Shasta, Monument Valley and Crater Lake are locations that allow people to experience spiritual awakenings and appreciate life as they take in the high vibrational energies from these natural spots.

10. Bon Echo Provincial Park (Ontario), Canada

11. Cape Reinga, New Zealand

13. Mount Taranaki, New Zealand

14. Lake Taupo, New Zealand

19. Black Mountain, Australia 
“There have been numerous reports of the appearance of spirits or human like shadows, strange noises and very peculiar air and magnetic disturbances reported by pilots that have been flying over the area as well as claims of sightings of extraterrestial activity.”

Canada is another popular destination amongst travellers, as the majority of their tourists seeking spirituality visit ancient forests and national parks based in Nova Scotia and British Columbia. Kejimkujik and The Great Bear Rainforest is known for its starry skies, lodges and beautiful scenery which allows visitors to find inner peace and absorb nature's natural healing properties, while disconnecting from the online world and connecting with the present. At Provincial Park, Aurora Village and Bon Echo Provincial Park, individuals can find waterfalls, riverside views and plant life, making them perfect places to set intentions, learn from the spirits and receive their messages.  

Other locations that are on any wanderluster’s list are Australia and New Zealand, because of their golden beaches, summer-like weather and beautiful accents. Tourists love to go down under and experience more than just the Aussie and Kiwi ways of life, as they want to reap the benefits of connecting with the Mauri and Aboriginal people’s culture. Travellers can connect with the artistry, heritage and beauty of these ancient cultures and learn much in the way of values, love and family while visiting these beautiful places.

Spiritualist at Psychic Sofa, Estella, shares the benefits of visiting the spiritual spots and how this can help people: “Human spirituality goes back thousands of years, and visiting places that our ancestors found spiritually significant can help us to connect to the universe by getting away from the city and bringing us closer to nature. Many of these locations have a lot of mystery and history associated with them, marking them as important places where the human world meets the spiritual world – they are perfect locations for anyone wanting to experience their own spiritual awakening.”
