The Power of Travel to Transform Our Lives
By Andrea Mikana-Pinkham, Director of Sacred Sites Journeys
A person needs at intervals to separate from family and companions and go to new places.
One must go without familiars in order to be open to influences, to change.
If you let your fear of consequence prevent you from following your deepest instinct,
then your life will be safe, expedient and thin.
- Author Katherine Butler Hathaway
These are powerful words! When Mark Amaru Pinkham and I founded our sacred travel company in 1993, it was with the goal of supporting people to travel to sacred sites around the world for spiritual growth and transformation. In the past twenty-two years that weve been operating and leading our Sacred Sites Journeys groups, weve observed many positive changes in the lives of the people who travel with us. Below is the scenario you can expect if you decide to journey with us, though of course how it will play out in your life will be unique to you.
First of all, you will encounter the call to journey, often at a time when you may be at a turning point in your life. You will have a deep inner knowing that your sacred travels will benefit you in ways that you do not yet understand. Your affirmative response to this irresistible pull from your Higher Self, and the step you take to register for your Sacred Sites Journey will often create a whole new set of possibilities for your life. It offers a shining promise of both an exciting outer and inner adventure.
Once the decision is made to go on your sacred journey, and the registration is submitted to us to tell Spirit that you are making this commitment, the material provisions for your journey will appear. We have witnessed many miracles of Spirit over the past twenty years, as abundance has been bestowed easily, peacefully and joyfully upon our fellow travelers. God/Goddess will reward you too for your courage to undertake the journey, with both all the material and spiritual provisions you will need. The money will become available for you to pay for your journey. And spiritual provisions such as courage, cheerfulness, self-esteem, willingness to listen, mental clarity, tact, openness to change, generosity of Spirit, honesty, flexibility, and of course love will manifest in your life, for you to take with you on the journey.
At this point, you may want to ponder the personal goal of your journey, which is ultimately to bring back a higher and richer knowledge of yourself, that which makes you more whole. Knowing that you have within yourself the power to accomplish any goal that you set out to attain, you also know that its necessary to first set your goals for your journey. Keep them simple. Maybe write them down to take with you, so that you can look at them each day, maybe even several times a day.
Then comes the time to leave home and the familiarity of your everyday life, time for your spiritual pilgrimage - the Heros Journey to the Heart of your Being. On each of our Sacred Sites Journeys we offer you the opportunity to experience the transformative energies of the worlds most important sacred sites. These power spots can induce profound changes in consciousness. When you come into contact with their higher frequencies, change does happen, whether you are aware of it at the time, or later. You can easily and peacefully let go of long held psychological and emotional blocks. We support and assist you to accomplish this through group and/or private meditation time, as well as through optional group ceremonies and rituals. By using these powerful spiritual tools to release, you become stronger and more complete. Born anew and ready to return home to face life in a new and deeper way, more aware of the fullness of your Self.
Then its time to return home, and not the same as when you left. Dont worry, youre still You! Just a new and improved You! Its a good idea to give yourself a bit of time for re-entry and not rush back into your life. Allow a bit of time to reorder your life around the new You. Take time for the sacred undertakings you have received support you as you accommodate your enlarged identity. Establishing this new harmonious balance in your life is essential to the journey.
Its also time to share your sacred travel experience with your fellow travelers. Stay in touch with your new Sacred Sites Journeys friends and family. Weve seen lifelong friendships and even several marriages develop out of our trips! Its also time to share with your family, friends, co-workers, and sometimes perhaps even with complete strangers. As the ripples from your experience flow out into the web of life, you will be supporting others to listen to the call of their Higher Self and also make their Heros Journey to their True Self! What better gift can you give yourself and the world?

Sacred Sites Journeys was founded to provide opportunities for seekers to travel to
the worlds sacred sites to undergo initiations just like the initiates of the past once did.
Through offering ritual, meditation, and other spiritual practices we are committed to creating
the energized environments that are most conducive to the healing of past traumas
and the activation (or further activation) of spiritual vision and abilities.
On a Sacred Sites Journeys pilgrimage you will not only be transported to a dynamic and exotic sacred site,
but to places within yourself that only the initiates of the past knew existed.
