The truth, trust, and screenshots
I have 2 new favorite things that I’m going to talk about today. Trustpilot and screenshots. Because they both make me feel good.
Every few days or so I get an email from Trustpilot that says “you’ve got a new 5 star review!” and I go and read wonderful things that people have written about Sedona Soul Adventures.
Trustpilot is a company that was started a few years ago because people were discovering that so many of the reviews you read online have been made up by people who have never used the product or service. Companies were paying people $5/hour to write hundreds of rave reviews about their companies and (even worse) they were also paying these people to write negative reviews about their competitors.
We have thousands and thousands of testimonials that people have written for us over the past 14 years and I’ve had people say to me “how do I know those weren’t made up?” Luckily, we don’t get that very often, but I can understand people being skeptical in this day and age. It’s opened the way for the new business of “3rd party reviews”, meaning that a 3rd party (not the company) is collecting and verifying the reviews.
So Trustpilot is a service that sends an email to our clients asking if they’d like to write a review after their Soul Adventure. If the client sends a review to Trustpilot, Trustpilot verifies it’s really them and then posts the review for all to see. Even though we’re paying Trustpilot to do this, we can’t interfere in any way, meaning we can’t edit or take down a negative review. That way you know that all these reviews are on the up and up. And luckily, we’ve had nothing but fabulous reviews.
So I’m going to show you some of our recent reviews, using screenshots from Trustpilot. This leads me to my 2nd favorite thing that I’m loving right now, which is taking screenshots. I have no idea why I love screenshots so much, but I do. I started taking them constantly as my new book (“The Journey To Happy”) was climbing to #1 Best Seller and Hot New Releases on Amazon a couple of weeks ago. I kept taking screenshots when I was in the top 100 and then as it was climbing and then when I got into the top 3 and then when I edged out Mother Teresa (God forgive me) and then when I edged out Deepak Chopra’s new book. I kept taking screenshots of the Amazon pages when the book hit #1 in 5 categories and then International #1 in 4 countries. So I have a bunch of screenshots that are in German, that I don’t even understand, but I love it!
I think it also just makes me finally feel computer savvy in the tiniest bit. I usually feel so technically incompetent, that every time the click for the screenshot goes off, it’s exciting (I’m easily entertained!)
But the best part, is these beautiful heartfelt messages. And by seeing the screenshot from Trustpilot, you know they’re real!
Aren’t those fantastic? And I love the ones from couples:
And I especially love these that talk about how this was out of their comfort zone
And this one is so fantastic – she says she thought she was hopeless.
Even after all these years and all these thousands of people – it never ceases to amaze me what happens!
If you’d like, you can go onto Trustpilot and read all of our reviews, but instead of doing that, I would highly recommend that you contact us and come out to Sedona and do a retreat. If your life or your relationship isn’t exactly the way you want it to be, what are you waiting for? What we do works. Wouldn’t you like to have some of the joy and peace and satisfaction all these people are talking about happen to you?
Contact us, connect with an Angel Guide and let them design the perfect retreat for you. There’s no cost or obligation and you might be amazed at what can happen. Click here and one of our Angel Guides will call you. Or if you’d prefer, call us toll free at 1-877-204-3664 (US and Canada).

Sedona Soul Adventures – Transforming Lives One Soul At A Time
Machu Picchu, people getting engaged, memories, and repeaters
This past week I got the most wonderful news. A text message (complete with photos) from 2 people who were on my Peru trip last year telling me they just got engaged! They had the most amazing time in Peru and had such a deep connection with Jorge Luis, our shaman and guide. The day after we texted back and forth, this picture suddenly popped up in my iPhone (out of the blue) and it just made me smile because of all the amazing thoughts and memories that are associated with this photo.
In the photo, we’re on the ceremonial altar which is right on Lake Titicaca and next to the labyrinth. We stay at this amazing place each year, it’s right on the Lake and it’s so beautiful. We had just completed making a very funny video for one of my brothers, sending him greetings from Lake Titicaca (he thinks the name is funny).
Two of the people are the ones who just got engaged. Three other people went with me to Egypt (in previous years) and then last year did this trip to Peru. One of the people went to Egypt with me last year and is going again in February! Since this picture was taken, one of the women has had a gallery showing of her incredible art work. Another one of the women came to Sedona to do a Soul Adventures retreat and it completely changed her life and now she’s about to go to Nepal as part of her work and next year she’s going to Egypt with me! Except for the two who just got engaged, and the mother and daughter, none of the people I’ve mentioned knew each other before this trip. We’ve stayed in touch and they’ve stayed in touch with each other and I feel so blessed to have each and every one of them in my life.
This is the really wonderful thing about these trips. The amazing people that you connect with. And though I’ve made them all sound so incredible, they are just normal, wonderful, nice, fun people. But they are also people who are conscious and spiritually focused and who want their lives to be amazing.
Does that sound like you? Would you like to add some amazement and incredible into your life? If so, come with me to Machu Picchu & Peru, June 17-30. Seeing Machu Picchu for the first time, connecting with the energies of this amazing place, spending 2 weeks with our shaman and guide, Jorge Luis Delgado, is positively life changing. And, of course, connecting with the amazing people who are drawn to do this trip.
