Perhaps one of the most liberating things we can do as humans is abandon the comforts of life we know and love and hit the open road. And, what better way to feel completely free than to drive away in an RV? RVs offer complete location independence, so you don’t need to stop and find a motel every night.
But, people aren’t just looking for freedom when they load up an RV. Some people want more than just thrills and adventure. For some, an RV road trip offers the chance to have a completely unique spiritual experience. It might not be the most luxurious spiritual trip but turning your standard road trip into an RV spiritual adventure might just change your life.
So, here’s how you do it.
Decide What You Want From Your RV Spiritual Adventure
Before you set off on your spiritual journey, it is a good idea to have a goal in mind. This doesn’t have to be particularly specific but it should be realistic. Don’t embark on your journey thinking that you will solve all your problems just by driving around for a bit. That won’t happen.
An example of a realistic goal is maybe to help yourself come to terms with being alone or to be able to embrace loneliness. Alternatively, you might want to achieve a certain level of independence. Whatever you choose, make sure it really comes from you and not from any external pressures. This is your spiritual adventure.
Do Your RV Trip Alone
Spiritual journeys of any kind, RV or otherwise, are best taken alone. If you don’t have anyone else with you, you can’t be swayed by any external attitudes. You won’t feel rushed or under any pressure and you can do what you need to do in your own time and on your own terms. Doing the trip alone also allows you to focus all of your energy on yourself – a privilege we are not often afforded in every day life.
You should also disconnect from social media as much as you can. A constant feed of activity from your friends won’t help you be alone, which is what you need. Focus your body and mind on your personal RV spiritual adventure.
Be Honest With Yourself
If you think you need more time or need to be doing your journey differently in order to maximise your results, don’t be afraid to tell yourself that. You also mustn’t be afraid of failing. It may well be the case that you don’t achieve your goal during your spiritual RV journey. If that’s what happens then that’s fine as long as you feel comfortable admitting that to yourself. The only person you hurt by lying to yourself if you.
Be Strategic With Your Destinations
Knowing what you want to get from your RV spiritual adventure will help you decide where you should be going. Pick destinations of general spiritual importance as well as places that hold a special significance just for you. Avoid big cities with lots of distractions as this might cause you to lose focus of your aims. Turning your RV trip into a spiritual journey is a big decision so, if you decide to do it, make sure you do it properly.
