Deliciousness of Freedom

Happy Independence Day! The 4th of July is so wonderful. I will be in Wichita, Kansas with all 4 of my brothers, most of their children and 3 grand babies I haven’t met yet (all under the age of 14 months!). It will be hot and humid but the barbecue and the sweet corn and the fireworks and the laughter of babies and my brothers pranking me (like they always do!) will be delicious. 

I love the 4th of July because it truly is about independence and it always makes me really think deeply about freedom and independence. And I don’t mean the political kind (although that certainly makes all the rest of it possible). I mean the true freedom and independence to live our lives the way we want to live them. 

And the sad thing for me is that almost everyone I talk to tells me they can’t live their life the way they truly want to. And they always have someone else that is the reason for why they can’t. It’s usually a spouse, or partner, or girlfriend/boyfriend,  child, a boss, a parent or someone else. Another person who is making it “impossible” for them to live the way they want to live. 

Guess what? It’s just not true. While it is true that we have responsibilities to other people, it’s your choice whether you allow other people to control your life. I’m not saying you don’t need to take care of your child, of course you need to take care of your child. But who’s running your household? Who makes the rules? When I was growing up, everything was planned around my parents, not around the children. 

And I’m not saying you don’t take care of your spouse/partner/girlfriend/boyfriend. Of course you do. You are together to help each other be the best you can be. But does that mean giving up your own knowing and independence? I don’t think so. It’s so interesting to me, I coach couples all the time and very often there is a  “thing” that one person in the relationship wants to do and thinks they can’t because the other one won’t “let” them. They don’t tell the other person, or if they do it’s always in an angry, nagging way. What I’ve discovered is that when one partner can hear your heart’s desire from your heart (and not from anger and nagging), they actually WANT their partner to have the “thing” and be fulfilled. 

Are you living a life of freedom and independence? Do you want to? What is one small change you could make right now in honor of Independence Day to start you on that path? Figure out what it is and tell me about it, I’d love to hear from you – Click here

If you’re struggling to find your freedom and your independence – to find the true you that’s screaming to come out – it’s probably time to do a Sedona Soul Adventures retreat. We’ll custom design the retreat for you (or both of you if it’s a couple) to eliminate the blocks that are holding you back and give you the tools you can take home to truly integrate peace and freedom into your life.

The Moon is Void of Course today (June 26) at 7:56 AM (Eastern) until June 26 at 5:05 PM (Eastern) and the Moon is in Gemini.

The Moon is Void of Course today (June 26) at 7:56 AM (Eastern) until June 26 at 5:05 PM (Eastern) and the Moon is in Gemini.  Don’t make any important decisions while the Moon is Void of Course. For a deeper explanation of Moon Void of Course Click Here.

Gemini is the symbol of the Twin, so during this time you (and everyone else) will see both sides of everything. This can be good in some situations, but it can lead to indecision and people changing their minds for seemingly no reason.

Gemini is the most intellectual and mental of the signs, so it is a good time for writing and communication. Also a good time to do research (but remember, don’t make any decisions right now based on your research). Also a very favorable time for negotiating. Because things can be so changeable, it is also a good time for people being flexible. An excellent time to take a short trip.

And always remember, Astrology and other tools are simply that – tools. It’s good information to have, but it does not mean that this is the determining factor or controlling your life. We all have free will in all the choices that we make.  I like to look at it as good information that can be transcended.

Taurus is the bull and although this is a time when people can be very stubborn, it is also a time when we are attracted to calm and comfort., especially in our homes and our surroundings. This is a time when we tend toward the familiar and any kind of drama (especially with family members)  will be especially unwelcome.

This is a time when we yearn for and crave serenity and peace more than at any other time. It is also a time when we will feel more patient. Money and financial aspects are highlighted now, although when the Moon is Void of Course we may feel a need to possess things or possess other people. Be especially careful of your head or eyes. It’s not a good time to go to the dentist. Also, be very mindful of your ears and throat and your thyroid.

Power, Empowerment and My Egyptian Past Life

I did a session the other day with one of our amazing practitioners and the issue came up of power and power vs. empowerment. 

Empowerment is coming from our soul, from the highest part of ourselves and then through a combination of our solar plexus chakra and our heart chakra comes out as power. Have you ever been in the presence of someone who has true personal power? Or seen it in the movies? That person is calm, controlled, they’re not yelling and screaming, yet everyone knows they are the most powerful person in the room. 

But when power comes out through the ego, it comes out as harsh and tyrannical and unpleasant. We’ve all seen these people in real life and especially in the movies. 

When I was an attorney for 20 years, I actually had the mistaken belief that I had some kind of power. I could make people afraid because they were afraid of what the outcome might be. I intimidated people. Someone actually called me one time and said “I hear you’re a real bitch – I want you to be my lawyer!” He thought he was giving me a huge compliment. That was when I knew something was very much out of balance with how I was doing things. 

Around that same time I found out about a past life I had in Egypt where abuse of power was a huge lesson that was coming into this lifetime. 

True power comes from empowerment.  If you are living your life from fear and worry, that is a horrible place to be in. I know, because that’s where I was. 

When I came to Sedona for the first time in 1999, I was told it was time to “lay down your arms”. “Quit fighting”. 

With true empowerment, information is coming through our intuition and deep knowing; then our third chakra (our guts) gives us the energy to do what we know is right and our heart gives us the courage to do what we know is right. 

It’s so much easier. It’s so much simpler. When we are empowered, things happen the way they’re supposed to, easily and gracefully. When we’re coming from the power of the ego, we are struggling and fighting things to bend to our will. 

What a paradox. True empowerment is effortless. 

It wasn’t until I came to Sedona and learned and received these tools, that my life started to get easier. Do I do this all the time perfectly? No. I’m human. But when I remember and go straight to that true knowing, it’s always amazing what happens. 

Wouldn’t it feel great to come into true empowerment? It’s not only possible, it’s your birth right. The problem is, most people don’t even know where to start with it. I certainly didn’t.  That’s why I kept coming back to Sedona over and over again to work with different healers. Now it’s so much easier. With a Sedona Soul Adventure, people do it in 3 or 4 days! It’s so amazing! 

So if empowerment is an issue for you, think about coming here to Sedona to do a Soul Adventure retreat. If your immediate reaction to that idea is, “I would love to do that but I can’t do that because of  [time, money, it won’t work for me, you fill in the blank],”  you might want to ask why are you disempowering yourself? I truly believe that we have the ability to be or do or have anything we want, however, the first step towards that is empowering ourselves with that belief and finding the tools to make it happen. And that’s exactly what happens for you here at Sedona Soul Adventures. 

So call and speak with one of our Angel Guides and start on the road to empowerment. They’ll connect with you (or both of you, if it’s a couple) and custom design a retreat that will eliminate the blocks you’ve had to empowerment and then give you the tools to completely bring that into your life.

Call us toll free at 1-877-204-3664 (US and Canada) or Click Here and one of our Angel Guides will call you. For our friends outside the US and Canada call 001928-204-5988 to speak to one of our Angel Guides or click here and we’ll call you.  

Believe me – it feels so good.

If you're ready to do life differently…

Have you reached that point in your life where you want to overhaul everything?
Your career, your home, your relationships, your body
Even the way you “do” life?
Don’t worry. You’re not alone.
Most people arrive at this point. Sometimes, it’s after a major loss. Other times, it’s because your life gets out of balance. Others simply start to feel unfulfilled and bored, even though by most standards, they’re pretty darn successful.
The real question is …
What will you do about it?
You could simply grit your teeth and continue plodding through life as you know it. (But life is too short to be dissatisfied, don’t you think?)
You could indulge in a midlife crisis and do the stereotypical things like quit your job, divorce your spouse, move across the country and get a tattoo, all in an effort to reignite your passion for life. (Unfortunately, these changes typically don’t address what the real issues are.)
Or… you could give yourself the time, space and support needed to clarify your soul’s purpose, recapture a sense of direction, and discover how to consciously create the life of your dreams.
In other words … you could go on a private spiritual retreat. And in just 3 days… transform your life.
My new free guide reveals how. Request your copy of The Sedona Guide to Spiritual Retreats today to discover:
• How to tell if a spiritual retreat really is what you need right now (there are 4 major life scenarios that spiritual retreats are perfect for resolving – which one are you facing?)
• Why Sedona is the premier destination for people seeking spiritual healing and fulfillment (hint: the world’s most gifted healers and spiritual teachers flock here for this unusual reason)
• 3 rarely discussed reasons why group retreats often prevent significant spiritual growth and healing (this explains why group retreats are a poor investment of time and money, despite appearing “affordable”)
• The most important thing to do first to ensure your spiritual retreat delivers the results you want (Sedona is home to hundreds of healers and spiritual teachers – this time-proven strategy quickly pinpoints which ones will best meet your unique needs)

The Moon is Void of Course today (June 21) at 6:24 PM (Eastern) until June 21 at 11:30 PM (Eastern) and the Moon is in Aries.

The Moon is Void of Course today (June 21) at 6:24 PM (Eastern) until June 21 at 11:30 PM (Eastern) and the Moon is in Aries. Don’t make any important decisions while the Moon is Void of Course. For a deeper explanation of Moon Void of Course Click Here.
When the Moon is in Aries, it can be a very emotional time. You will feel a lot of enthusiasm and you can feel a real urge to do new things. This is a good time to think about new projects, renovations, etc., just wait until the Moon has moved out of Void of Course to make any final decisions. It’s possible for you to be more impulsive, but also very independent.
The Aries moon deeply affects the subconscious, so this is a very good time to go within. A good time to meditate, do yoga, anything that makes you feel more connected to the higher part of yourself. Aries also affects the workplace, so it is a good time to think about future projects, just don’t make final decisions. You might also find yourself tempted to make rash decisions during this time, so be on the look-out for that. Aries also stimulates the metabolism, so it’s a very good time to do physical exercise, just be careful to not over-do. If you are feeling frustration during this time, just take some deep breaths and know that this too shall pass!
And always remember, Astrology and other tools are simply that – tools. It’s good information to have, but it does not mean that this is the determining factor or controlling your life. We all have free will in all the choices that we make. I like to look at it as good information that can be transcended.

When the Moon is in Pisces, it is an incredible time for deep spirituality, deep emotions and deep intuition. You will feel very sensitive during this time and it’s important to not allow those emotions and sensitivities to tip into despair, as you can utilize this time to your advantage by going within.
By doing so, you can receive incredible insights as the past and present seem to merge together. Your imagination and dreams will be very strong during this time. If you find yourself leaning towards negative thoughts during this time, stay away from alcohol or drugs, as this time fuels the energy of addiction. On the other hand, it can be an incredibly creative time, especially for poetry, music, painting, etc. If you do work or activities that require concentration, be extra careful. The risk of fungal diseases is higher now; avoid surgery of the feet.This is one of the most mystical times – so take good advantage of that.

The Moon is Void of Course today (June 17) at 2:07 PM (Eastern) until June 17 at 2:26 PM (Eastern) and the Moon is in Aquarius. Don’t make any important decisions while the Moon is Void of Course. For a deeper explanation of Moon Void of Course Click Here.
When the Moon is in Aquarius, you will feel an interest in new things, far out things. There is a sense of emotional detachment during this time. There is more of a focus on ideas and intellectual pursuits than on emotional connection. You may feel a bit more blunt during this period and other people may be more blunt with you. This could actually cause tenseness in your relationships, so be aware of that. For most people during this time, friends become more important than family. More focus might be placed on people in general as opposed to individuals (social consciousness).
This is a good time for people working with technology, with electricity and electronics and other types of science. New and original (even unconventional) ideas can best be fostered during this time. This is a very good time to do things to strengthen your cardio-vascular system. Be careful with your joints, veins and eyes. Be careful when handling electrical appliances. This is an excellent time for meeting with groups or in clubs and a wonderful time to contemplate (but not decide on) a new adventure in your life.
And always remember, Astrology and other tools are simply that – tools. It’s good information to have, but it does not mean that this is the determining factor or controlling your life.

When the Moon is in Sagittarius it is a time of enthusiasm, idealism, generosity and it ignites desires for adventure and travel. People are generally very expansive during this time and it’s also a time that brings out our desire for independence. For work, this is a wonderful time for expansion, especially if your work has to do with studying, teaching, anything having to do with travel or foreign lands. It’s also a wonderful time to attend workshops or seminars or for any type of outdoor recreation.

Sagittarius rules the lungs, so be very careful of your lungs and respiratory system. This is not a good time for medical procedures that involve the lungs, but a wonderful time to use breath as a healing practice. It’s also not a good time to start building or construction. Also be on the look-out for people being untruthful with you (including stealing from you) and be careful to not over-indulge in gambling. If you are feeling restless, just take a breath and remember, “this too shall pass”.
