Last week in Part I, I spoke about sexless marriages and how that has been a theme of many of our Couples Retreats lately and how successful we’ve been in helping couples with that.
This week in Part II, I want to talk about how we’ve been seeing a growing number of people who are telling us they want more love and connection (and sex) in their lives. But actually, the biggest part is the love and connection piece.
Ironically, what we’re finding in these situations is that the real culprit is not love on the outside. It’s the lack of love the person is feeling for themselves that’s blocking love from coming in.
This lack of self love, lack of self acceptance, having an underlying belief that you’re not good enough, not deserving of love, can block everything in your life — not only love, but abundance and happiness and general well being.
The real question is, where does that come from and what can you do about it?
One of the things I love so much about what we do here at Sedona Soul Adventures is that we are so great at figuring that out and helping people with it.
We had a client here a few months ago who had been dealing with this issue for years, primarily with talk therapy. She knew she felt unloveable and thought it had to do with her disapproving and stern mother, who had died the year before. Her Angel Guide felt like there was probably more to the story and that’s exactly what happened. One of the first sessions that she did was a Karmic Clearing and in that session it came out that she had more than one past life with her mother where they had been adversaries and deeply competitive. She had actually killed her mother in one of those lifetimes. In the session, the karma and the soul contracts were completely cleared and she said she actually felt the energy and tension from all that flowing out of her body.
She then did a Core Belief Transformation session and in this one, she was dealing with the false belief “I’m not lovable”. This session is so powerful because it connects on all the levels – physical, mental, emotional and physical. Going back and seeing where this belief went in was so powerful and she had a huge emotional response, crying and just letting go. She said she was able to solidly replace that old false belief with the new empowering one – “I love myself just the way I am”.
But the breath work was the real capper. She literally went into the altered state and was viewing her mother’s life from a number of different angles and perspectives. She saw what a difficult life her mother had had, and why it had been so difficult for her mother to feel and express love. Just as she was feeling this huge surge of compassion for her mother, her mother suddenly appeared to her to in a vision, smiling and telling her how much she loved her. Needless to say, there was a lot of kleenex used in that session. But she told me she literally felt her mother’s love and felt it in a way that she had never felt before.
In her Spiritual Transformation session, the knowing that she truly loves herself went in really deep and she got some important tools to take home. And again, that’s another thing that’s so great about our retreats. Because we give people tools they can continue to use to not only maintain, but deepen the transformations which happen here.
She went home and everything had changed. She really loved herself. When we connected a few weeks ago, I found out she was getting married! And this week I got a Facebook post from her wedding.
Do you want more love in your life? It all starts with really loving yourself in a deep way. This can be a real struggle for many of us, especially when we don’t really know what has caused our lack of self love in the first place or what is blocking us. Call now to speak to one of our Angel Guides. They’ll spend time talking to you (or both of you if it’s a couple), really digging deep and discovering the blocks that are holding you back from the life or relationship you want. Then they’ll design the retreat that’s perfect for you.

Wishing you a week filled with love and connection,

Sedona Soul Adventures – Transforming Lives One Soul At A Time
Lauren says before her Soul Adventure she was “lost, sad and full of heartache”: after – “I love me!”
“I was in a very dark place and my heart knew I needed to travel to a special place for healing and clarity. I was lost, sad, and full of heartache. Sedona called my name at exactly the right time and I serendipitously came across the Sedona Soul Adventures website. My soul adventure provided a safe place to journey through the pain and grief, gave me the tools to continue the healing process, and helped me become balanced and whole. I am no longer hardened by the world – I am soft and gushy! I no longer react in anger or frustration, I can breathe life and peace inside when confronted with difficult situations. I understand who I am and I love me! Thank you Sedona Soul Adventures! I’ll be back – I promise!”
