#3. METAPHYSICAL ESCAPES
Religion, Spirituality, Prayer, Meditation

“If anybody can find someone to love them and to help them through this difficult thing that we call life, I support that in any shape or form.”

– Will Smith

Do you pray? Do you meditate? Do you go to church or temple?

Do you visit fortune tellers, study Vedic Astrology, or experience shamanic healing?

The metaphysical has always been part of the human experience, and it serves as both a positive and negative escape for people all over the globe.

YOUR ASSIGNMENT: Make note of your positive and negative metaphysical escapes, things that take you out of your everyday life. Energetically and emotionally, do they feed you or bleed you? Lastly, think about metaphysical escapes that perhaps you’ve overlooked or neglected.

TIP: we often reject our own metaphysical experiences and family history while simultaneously glorifying the metaphysical beliefs of other cultures. In an attempt to be as authentic as possible, focus on what is really true to you who you are and what you believe.
