I guess I struck a nerve
I guess I struck a nerve last week with my newsletter about the Top 5 Deathbed Regrets. I can’t remember (in 13 years of doing this newsletter), a response like I got from this one — I was deluged with emails from people, we had so many calls to the office and requests for Angel Guide sessions, so many people who booked retreats, plus I had many more people than usual contact me about the Peru and Egypt trips and a bunch of people who signed up for both trips.
Whew! It’s so funny, I almost didn’t write that newsletter because I thought it might be too “down”. I even sent it to 2 people whose opinion I value, asking them if they thought this was an okay subject or too depressing? They both loved it and judging from the response, I guess I was right. This is something we all have to be thinking about — we have a limited amount of time on this planet and we have to be thinking about how we are spending our precious time here and how can we live with no regrets?
The emails I received were so sweet and telling. One woman wrote “Debra, I’ve been reading your newsletter for 8 years telling myself that “someday” I’ll do a Soul Adventure. I’ve been telling myself I couldn’t afford it and, hopefully, “someday” I’ll be able to do it. Now I realize I can’t afford Not to do it. And I know I need to do it Now!”
It reminded me of one of my favorite quotes from one of my teachers, Abraham:
“Your life is right now! It’s not later! It’s not in that time of retirement. It’s not when the lover gets here. It’s not when you’ve moved into the new house. It’s not when you get the better job. Your life is right now. It will always be right now. You might as well decide to start enjoying your life right now!”
Is there a dream in your life that is unfulfilled? Is there something you’ve been telling yourself you’re going to do “someday”, but so far nothing is happening in that direction?
Do you keep waiting for something to be different? A situation or a person? As Einstein said (and you’ve heard a million times) ‘The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.’
I spent over 10 years being dissatisfied with my work, my life, my body, my relationship and always telling myself that “someday” things would be different, even though I was never really doing anything about it. I admit I was completely insane – I kept doing the same thing over and over again somehow, magically, expecting a different result. It wasn’t until I came to Sedona for the first time (in January, 1999) that things started to really turn around for me. Here’s some advice from a formerly insane person:
Nothing will be different in your life until you do something different.
If you’re unhappy about your work, you need to do something about your work.
If you feel like you aren’t living your life purpose, when are you going to start?
If you feel like you don’t know what your life purpose is, what are you doing to find out?
If you’re unhappy about your relationship, you need to do something about your relationship.
If you’re unhappy or dissatisfied about anything in your life, you have to do something about it. It’s not going to miraculously change without you doing something different.
I met with a couple this week who were here starting their couples retreat and the husband told me they had never done anything like this before and he was freaking out a little because it was out of his comfort zone. They had been in traditional therapy for over a year, it wasn’t working and it looked like they were headed for divorce. I told him this works exactly because what we do IS different and not like anything they had done before. As Einstein says, the only way to get different results is to do something different.
I was so happy to see them on the last day of their retreat. Everything had turned around, they both even looked different. Their relationship has been completely transformed — they were able to get to the heart of their issues and come back onto love and connection, plus they received tools to continue to maintain and deepen that connection. He told me he could hardly believe what had happened in just 4 days. Four days of doing something different had given them completely different results.
I love it so much that this past week we had such a surge of people contacting us to take steps to do something different with their lives and their relationships, as well as people signing up for bucket list trips like Egypt and Peru. Do you want something different in your life? If so, call us – we we can help you do exactly that!

Sedona Soul Adventures – Transforming Lives One Soul At A Time
Ian says his Soul Adventure was the most important week of his life
“It’s been a year since my Sedona Soul Adventure. Who knew the extent of the results, I can hardly believe the year I’ve had, and to this day, my week with Sedona Soul Adventures and all the lovely angels that I met remains the most important week of my life. I came for three days of soul work and had so many blocks removed and so many profound shifts and awakenings. I had no idea just how quickly my new life would unfold. I cannot thank you enough.”
