A New Addition in Egypt and Why You Should Come Next Year


Egypt group 2020.2Our Return to Egypt trip is coming to a close and it’s been another amazing journey. This has actually been one of the most amazing trips ever. The group was fabulous, the weather was wonderful, the energy has been amazing – I feel so incredibly blessed and so happy to have brought another group of people who have been flabbergasted and amazed by this trip.

And even though this was my 20th trip to Egypt (!) there were so many new additions that were so wonderful.

valley of kings egypt 2020.1The first one is that we are able to take photos almost everywhere we go. This is such an about face from what has happened in years past. It used to be that you absolutely could not take photos inside so many of  the tombs – especially in the Valley of the Kings and Queens where the colors and the images are just so absolutely spectacular. valley of kings egypt 2020.2They used to be so strict about it that back in 1983, when I was here for the first time, the friend I was with in the tomb of Ramses VI thought we were all alone, took a photo and almost lost his camera. The flash went off and the guards up top came rushing down and were about to take our camera. After lots of apologizing and paying some bakshish (tip money), they took the film and gave us back the camera. tomb of nefertari 2020.1Here’s some of the photos from the Valley of the Kings.

Last year they started to allow us to take photos in many of the places, but this season we were even able to take photos inside the Tomb of Queen Nefertari, which is widely considered to be the most beautiful tomb in all of Egypt. tomb of nefertari 2020.2

Look at these spectacular colors. This one of Nefertari as Maat is a scene that I have on papyrus in my home. So incredibly beautiful.

Nefertari was the favorite Queen of Ramses II, the most powerful Pharaoh that ever ruled. temple of nefertari 2020His reign spanned over 60 years and there are temples all over Egypt built by him. In addition to her fabulous tomb, he also built a fantastic temple to her next to his spectacular temple at Abu Simbel. I love this temple so much, doesn’t it look as if the gods are just walking out of the mountain?

One of my favorite carvings in the temple is this one that shows what looks like a modern day flip hairdo – isn’t that great?flip egypt 2020

seti 1 egypt 2020.1New this year: Also new this year, they have re-opened the tomb of Seti I, after many years of it being closed to the public. I had never seen this tomb before and it is absolutely spectacular. He was the father of Ramses II, so it’s obvious that no expense was spared for his final resting place.

seti i - debra stangl - richard - egypt 2020The other thing that is so interesting when you see the huge and amazing tombs of these powerful Pharaohs is to think about what must have been inside them originally. King Tut’s tomb was very small (as he was a very insignificant king), but it was filled with the most amazing things, so much gold and incredible jewelry. So if Tut’s tomb had this much treasure in it, can you imagine what was in the tombs of someone like Seti I or Ramses II? It’s absolutely mind blowing to even contemplate.seti 1 egypt 2020.2

King Tut MaskNew next year, the new Cairo Museum: And I’m so excited that the new Cairo museum will be open for our next trip! The building is absolutely staggering, it’s just huge. It will hold the treasures of King Tut and for the first time, ALL the treasures will be on display. Plus, so many of the artifacts that have never been displayed just because there wasn’t enough room (the old Museum was built in 1905) will finally be seen in all their glory. I literally can’t wait!

This next trip is going to be even more spectacular with the new Museum opening. I urge you to get on the Wait List for our next trip, which is February 15-28, 2021. This year’s trip sold out in roughly two weeks, so I can’t imagine how fast this one will sell out. As soon as we have all the details, we’ll send you the information and then you can send in your deposit. Click here.

By the time you read this on Sunday, we’ll be winging our way back home and we will have completed our two hours of private time inside the Great Pyramid, doing ceremony and meditation. It’s always so powerful and I know it will be this year too.

Best Life Purpose Retreat for Men in 2020 

As a man, you feel the pressure to carve out a successful career, be a good provider for your family, and to behave a certain way.

But if you’ve found your way to this page, there’s a good chance that some parts of your life aren’t really working for you anymore.

Perhaps you’re successful at work…but what you do for a living no longer excites or challenges you. You’re bored, going through the motions, and basically marking time until you can retire.

Perhaps in your pursuit of being a good provider, you’ve lost touch with what matters most for you. Your professional success has come at the price of unfulfilling or even broken relationships with loved ones and friends. You feel lonely and crave a deeper connection with the people in your life.

Perhaps in your efforts to live up to the expectations you were given about what it means to be a man, you had to shut off parts of yourself that others deemed unacceptable. Now those pieces of your personality are clamoring to be heard and expressed, and you’re unsure of which direction to go.

A life purpose retreat may be the solution to ensure that 2020 is your best year yet.

Your retreat will be a carefully curated journey of experiences and healing sessions designed to meet you where you are…and help you get in touch with your higher self and intuition. 

Once you’re able to tune into and trust the inner wisdom that is trying to guide you, your life purpose will become clear. 

You’ll know what you’ve been put on this planet to achieve. Ideas about how to live your purpose will flow. And you’ll be confident and comfortable making changes to pursue your ideas and reveal the true you to the world.

Nothing is more powerful than showing up as your full self. It’s time to stop hiding who you are – and to stop denying what you’re meant to be doing.

Your next step in planning a life purpose retreat is to schedule a complimentary, no-obligation discovery session with one of our Angel Guides. During this confidential conversation, you’ll be invited to talk openly about where you are – and where you want to go.

Best Life Purpose Retreat for Women in 2020

You’ve spent your life taking care of others and doing what’s been expected of you.

Perhaps you’ve been strong and confident enough to live life differently than how the people around you might have hoped…

But now you’re feeling discontented and a bit rudderless. On the outside, things look normal. Inside, though, you’re struggling with anxiety, frustration and maybe even despair. 

Is this really all there is to life?

In a word…no.

Although most people go through life asleep and unaware that they have a sacred purpose they’re supposed to fulfill in their lifetime, you are awake. You feel the pull to do something more.

A life purpose retreat will help you uncover what’s calling to you.

For some women, it’s a completely new career.

For others, it’s reinventing how they show up in the world.

For still others, it’s going after bigger goals and not holding themselves back.

Uncovering your life purpose is a journey. 

You may have some healing to do.

You may need to release and replace some limiting beliefs that have impacted how you show up in the world. 

You may need to learn how to connect with your higher self and listen to the quiet inner voice that is trying to guide you.

We’ll support you by crafting a custom-designed, private retreat that delivers the experiences, sessions and professional guidance you need to accomplish these goals.

We work with more than 50 Master Practitioners in Sedona. After learning more about where you are in life and what’s calling you, we’ll connect you with the right people to support you on your journey.

Your life purpose retreat begins with a complimentary, no-obligation discovery session with one of our Angel Guides.

Best Life Purpose Retreat to Find a New Career in 2020

You may have started your career full of passion and eager to take on challenges.

You’ve probably experienced some level of success…and maybe even reached the pinnacle in your chosen profession.

But your work no longer excites you. You dread Monday mornings and count down the hours until you can go home.

You’ve become complacent in your work…even sloppy. You know that the people you work with and serve deserve better, but it’s nearly impossible to care enough to take action.

You’re burned out and may be skidding toward a professional breakdown or burnout.

You know that you need to make a change and find a new career. 

But…what? 

What are you supposed to be doing with your life? And how can you ever possibly make the shift, especially this late in the game?

A life purpose retreat is the answer. 

Stepping away from the demands and confines of your daily life gives you the space and clarity to hear what your inner wisdom is trying to tell you.

Doing this work in Sedona allows you to amplify the spiritual energy of the process, making it faster and easier to connect with your higher self and life purpose.

We craft custom designed life purpose retreats that incorporate a variety of experiences and healing modalities designed to help you get clear on what you’re meant to do next – so you can identify the next step in your professional journey.

To begin the conversation, reach out to one of our Angel Guides.

Best Life Purpose Retreat After Divorce in 2020

Your marriage has ended. And as you grieve the loss of your relationship and the dreams that went with it…

You’re also glimpsing the beauty of your experience.

You now have the opportunity and impetus to reinvent yourself. 

Now is the time to release what hasn’t been working for you.

Now is the time to discard what you no longer want, whether it’s possessions, relationships, behaviors or beliefs.

Now is the time to create what you want – and to reveal your authentic self to the world.

A custom-designed life purpose retreat is the perfect way to facilitate your journey.

Discovering your life purpose requires connecting to your higher self. This is the source of your intuition – the quiet voice that is persistently nudging you to do something different with your life.

When you allow us to plan your life purpose retreat, we’ll carefully select experiences and practitioners who can guide and support you along your journey. What we recommend depends on where you are, what you’ve experienced, and much more.

Whatever your life purpose journey retreat contains, though…you’ll leave clear, confident, and eager to embark on the next phase of your life.

Best Midlife Reinvention Life Purpose Retreat

You’ve hit one of the big birthdays…40, 50, maybe even 60.

And now you’re wondering…what’s next?

You’re filled with restlessness and a nagging feeling that your life just doesn’t fit anymore. 

Like a pair of too-tight shoes, your life may look great to others. But you’re uncomfortable…and maybe even in pain.

You’re ready to chuck it all away and start over. You just can’t put your finger on what, exactly, would make you happy. 

Some may call what you’re experiencing a midlife crisis. We prefer to think of it as a midlife reinvention.

The pull you’re feeling is completely natural. A century ago, the life expectancy for men and women was only around 60. But today, we’re living longer. And we’re more awake to the idea that we each have a unique purpose to fulfill in our lives.

The restlessness you feel is the call of your purpose. Your higher self is sending signals that what you’re doing now is out of alignment with who you truly are – and what you’re mean to do with your life.

A life purpose retreat in Sedona is the perfect place to rebirth yourself and create a plan to spend the next phase of your life living your purpose.

The veil between worlds is very thin here. Not only is it easier to connect with Source and your intuition, it’s easier to make powerful inner shifts.

Whether you need to reconnect with your authentic self, release beliefs and baggage that are holding you back, or heal emotional and spiritual wounds that keep you from living life fully, a life purpose retreat will help.

To explore what your retreat could look like, call now toll-free 877-204-3664 to speak to your Angel Guide or Click Here​​ and your Angel Guide will call you today!

You have been called from an inner voice — now it’s time to follow through on the most important choice in your lifetime!

Kissing on Camels and Kissing the Sphinx

Egypt group 2020

Debra and Richard and camel 2020

We have had the first few days of our fabulous Egypt trip! People from all over the country and Canada are here with us and as usual, we’re having the time of our lives on this amazing journey.

We always start right out with a camel ride to the Great Pyramid. Woman in orange on camelThey are so sweet and it’s so magnificent to just look up and there’s the Great Pyramid! Every year it’s just so stunning to be in the presence of this amazing structure that is so full of mystery.

Here’s Sherrilene getting a nuzzle from one of the camels! She came on a Soul Adventure last year and said to me “I must go to Egypt!” and now here she is! I love how that happens with so many people!

The camel guys always get a kick out of taking pictures of us kissing on our camels!

Kissing on camels 2020

And then it was on to the Sphinx, and this year we took a lot of photos playing around with the Sphinx.

Here’s me kissing the Sphinx.

And now the Sphinx is kissing my hand.

This is a new one and it’s my favorite – me putting sunglasses on the Sphinx!

We did a beautiful ceremony in the desert at the Solar Cross, definitely the highlight of the day.

We also drove past the new Egyptian Museum which opens on 10/10/2020! The scale of this place is absolutely amazing! I can’t tell you how excited I am to see it next year and have it be a huge part of our trip next year, which will be February 15-28, 2021!

If you think you may want to go on the trip next year, I highly recommend getting yourself on our Waiting List. This year’s trip sold out in a little over 2 weeks and I’m sure that’s what’s going to happen for this next trip. Especially with the addition of the new Egyptian Museum. Click here to put yourself on the list – and we’ll send you all the information as soon as it’s available.

Meditation is an easy and reliable way to quiet your mind and thoughts. In just a few minutes, you feel calmer and more focused.

Do you feel like you need healing – in body, mind, heart and/or soul?

Do you feel out of alignment with who you really are, deep down…and wish that you could shed whatever is holding you back and step forth as the radiant, magnificent being you truly are?

The Best Feminine Awakening Spiritual Retreat for 2020

Have you lost touch with who you are as a woman?

Do you feel disconnected from your feminine self…from who you are at your core…and from Source?

Have you sacrificed your dreams – and even your health – to take care of others, as women are so often expected to do?

Then you’re ready for a spiritual retreat dedicated to your feminine awakening.

During this special private retreat, you’ll be treated to a variety of experiences and healing sessions carefully structured to help you connect with the Goddess within.

Retreat participants report returning home feeling stronger, more clear, and more in touch with their spiritual side. They feel comfortable expressing their femininity, sensuality and emotions. They unapologetically go for what they want, while empowering the people around them.

The Best Self-Realization Spiritual Retreat for 2020

You’re feeling lost, perhaps a bit empty…and definitely certain that there is more for you in this lifetime.

Some people may look at your life and think you’re a huge success. Yet you don’t feel fulfilled or excited to get out of bed in the morning. 

You feel like you’re observing life rather than fully participating in it, going through the motions simply because that’s what is expected of you.

You may not know exactly what you want. But you do know that life is no longer working for you. You’ve lost your passion and drive…and now you’re wondering if you’ll ever get it back. 

If this sounds like you…2020 is the time for your self-realization spiritual retreat.

We aren’t meant solely to exist on this planet…even if that’s what most people end up doing.

We’re meant to learn certain lessons, BE certain people, and achieve a specific purpose.

The discontent you’re feeling is a sign from your higher, wiser self that you need a course correction. What you’re doing is no longer working because it’s not helping you fulfill your purpose, learn the lessons you’re meant to master, or evolve as a person.

You may not know what shifts you’re supposed to make – or even what your purpose is.

That’s where a self-realization spiritual retreat is invaluable.

Based on what is happening in your life, we’ll carefully curate a series of experiences and sessions to help you discover who you really are – and what you’re meant to do.

We work with more than 50 Master Practitioners and will select those who are best suited to help you along your journey.

Doing this powerful work in Sedona gives you an added boost. The entire geographic region is infused with powerful spiritual energy – the perfect cocoon for rebirth.

You’ll leave your self-realization spiritual retreat in touch with your authentic self, clear about your purpose and what you want to accomplish with your time left on Earth, and confident about moving forward.

Your journey begins with a simple phone call with one of our Angel Guides. We’ll explore where you are, what you’re experiencing, and what’s calling to you.

Call us toll-free at 877-204-3664 - or Click Here and we’ll call you!

You have been called from an inner voice — now it’s time to follow through on the most important choice in your lifetime!

Use Your Tax Refund on a Whole New Life or Relationship

tax refund

It’s that time of year again, and I hope you’re getting a nice big tax refund. It’s so great having that sudden jolt of available cash!

We have lots of people we’re working with right now who are waiting on their tax refund to use it for their Soul Adventure – isn’t that a great idea?

You worked hard all last year and here’s some extra money that is yours to keep and do with as you like. Wouldn’t it be perfect to spend that extra abundance on the one person who made it possible – YOU!?!

What a concept!

  • Taking care of yourself
  • Making yourself even better and happier this year
  • Indulging yourself by coming to the most beautiful place on earth 

We have so many people who come to us and say, “I’ve wanted to do this for so many years and now I’m finally doing it!”

Is this the year you give yourself the gift of a Sedona Soul Adventures retreat? We’ve just started our 18th year – isn’t that amazing? And even after all this time and all these thousands of people, I sometimes still can’t believe what happens for people when they come here.

Here’s one of our most recent reviews that Melanie posted on the third party review site, Trustpilot (third party means that Trustpilot verified she really is a client, she wrote the review and sent it to them, so you can be assured we aren’t just making this up!).

Now that just says it all!

If you could transform your life in three days, would that be worth spending your tax refund on it? If you could come back into connection with your beloved and have the relationship of your dreams after four days, would that be worth it to you? 

I know some of you are going to be thinking, “Yeah, right, my life will be transformed,” but it really is true. I know because I’ve witnessed it thousands of times. And don’t take my word for it, take Melanie’s and the hundreds of reviews we’ve received on Trustpilot in just the last few years (if you’d like to read the reviews, click below).

i want my transformation

Best Couples Retreats 2020

Named 2020 Best Marriage Retreat in the U.S. by Guidedoc

No two couples are the same, which is why we custom-design our best Couples Retreats to meet your specific issues, needs, timing and budget. Over the years, we've found some retreat themes that keep recurring.

Choose which is right for where you are in your relationship.

The 2020 Best Couples Retreat for Healing a Marriage 

A Couples Retreat is a powerful tool for healing a marriage.

Reasons that couples get to a point of needing to heal their marriage vary. 

Some couples are trying to recover from infidelity or another painful betrayal. 

Others have hit a rough patch caused by a significant life event, such as illness, job loss, the kids leaving home, needing to care for aging parents, or death of someone dear to you.

Still, others have found that their marriage shows signs of “wear and tear” caused by neglecting their relationship in the chaos, stress and rush of daily life.

Whatever your reason for needing to heal your marriage, a Couples Retreat with Sedona Soul Adventures will help repair rifts and get your relationship back on track.

Many spouses find that couples therapy does not heal their marriage. Instead, couples therapy can sometimes retrigger negative emotions and pain, leaving you to muddle through hurt feelings and strained communications until your next therapy session. 

A Couples Retreat, on the other hand, is a focused and intensive experience geared toward one thing: Allowing you to heal as individuals, and then as a couple, so you can then heal your marriage.

Your highly-trained Angel Guide will speak with each of you separately to explore where your relationship is and what needs to happen from both spouses’ perspectives to heal the marriage. 

We’ll then put together a Couples Retreat that provides healing opportunities to address each of your individual needs, as well as sessions to help you heal your marriage. 

You’ll return home refreshed, solid in your relationship, and more in love with each other than ever before.

The 2020 Best Couples Retreat If You’re Preparing for Marriage

For many soon-to-be spouses, a Couples Retreat has become a vital step in preparing for marriage and even re-marriage.

When you consider divorce statistics, you’ll soon see why a Couples Retreat makes sense. In the U.S., 50% of first marriages end in divorce. 

Couples who are remarrying face even gloomier odds. A whopping 67% of second marriages and 74% of third marriages end in divorce.

When you join in marriage, you’re doing more than sharing a household and bank account. You’re sharing a life, which means you’re melding two sets of experiences, expectations and behaviors – worldviews that often are significantly different.

A successful marriage requires love, of course. But it also requires excellent communication, the ability to resolve conflict, creating a shared vision of what you want your life to be, and a commitment to working together as partners to achieve the goals you have set for yourself as a couple.

It requires deliberate focus, hard work, and commitment to stay together and make the relationship work for both of you.

Most couples end up getting married and hoping for the best. 

But smart couples who are committed to doing all they can to avoid divorce invest their time in a Couples Retreat. Our planning process starts with a simple conversation. 

Your highly trained Angel Guide will meet with you to understand your hopes, dreams and goals for your marriage. You’ll discuss any concerns or trouble areas you have in your relationship, as well as any healing you may need to do as an individual.

We’ll then hand-select a variety of healing practitioners to conduct your retreat. You’ll leave your experience stronger as individuals, united as a couple, and fully prepared for a blissful marriage.

The 2020 Best Couples Retreat if You Want to Increase Emotional Intimacy with Your Spouse or Partner

If you’re ready to deepen your connection with your spouse or partner in 2020, an emotional intimacy Couples Retreat  is the answer. 

Emotional intimacy is the magic ingredient that transforms mundane, sedate relationships into passionate, deeply fulfilling love affairs. 

Without emotional intimacy, your relationship runs the risk of turning into a transactional, business-like arrangement. 

Sure, you do things together as a couple. But you’re doing them side by side as individuals, rather than being united heart and soul. You feel disconnected, which eventually leads to resentment, disinterest, and dissatisfaction with your relationship.

Developing emotional intimacy means allowing your partner to know the authentic you – the person you may often hide from others. It means being vulnerable and sharing your biggest dreams, deepest thoughts, and darkest fears. 

Emotional intimacy means caring about your spouse or partner – what they think and feel, what they want, how they’re viewing the world. It means being able to express yourself openly and feel accepted no matter what you say – and extending the same love and respect to your soulmate.

How much emotional intimacy a relationship needs depends on the people in the relationship. It’s something that only you can define, and it’s based on what feels “right” to you and your partner.

Gaining clarity about the level and type of emotional intimacy you both want is one of the first things your Angel Guide will do during your introductory discovery session. We’ll also help you understand how your upbringing has impacted your ability to develop intimacy and what needs to happen during your Couples Retreat to build the emotional intimacy you desire.

The 2020 Best Couples Retreat if You Want to Rekindle Your Marriage or Relationship

Have the fires of your relationship cooled to a few glowing embers? A Couples Retreat  to rekindle your marriage may be the best thing you can do for your relationship in 2020.

It’s normal for relationships to experience ebbs and flows. Even the simple act of getting through your busy days can take a toll. 

As time passes and we get older, the demands on our attention, time and energy grow. As you gain experience in your career, you may find yourself with increasing levels of responsibility that require more time at work. As your family grows, you find that your relationship takes a back seat to your kids’ needs.

Without adequate attention and nurturing, your relationship can lose its sizzle. It may be “fine” – and you and your spouse get along. But your relationship feels more like a comfy pair of old sweatpants than a sharp new suit or sexy black dress.

A Couples Retreat  custom-designed for you and your beloved can be just the ticket to rekindle your marriage with excitement, passion and sensuality.

The process starts with a call with one of our highly trained Angel Guides. We’ll get to know you and your partner, clarifying your vision of what a rekindled marriage looks like. You’ll then explore what each of you feels is missing from your connection – and what you need to bring your best self to the relationship.

By the end of your 2020 Couples Retreat, the fires of your marriage will be rekindled into a blazing roar. The passion and spark will be back, but you’ll be connected more deeply at a soul level. You’ll feel like a giddy teenager, in love with that special someone you chose all those years ago. 

If you’re ready to rediscover the magic and connection in your relationship, call our toll-free number, 877-204-3664, and ask to speak to your Angel Guide today. Or Click Here and we’ll call you!

The 2020 Best Couples Retreat for Couples Who Want to Communicate More Effectively

The quality of your relationship can be directly linked to the quality of your communication. That’s why couples who want a deeper connection and more joy, fun and fulfillment opt for a Couples Retreat  that focuses on how to communicate more effectively.

Communication issues arise in relationships for a number of reasons. One of the primary causes is differences in upbringing and how communication was handled in your family of origin.

Some families talk a lot, fight loudly and make up quickly. Others keep their true feelings bottled up and ice others out during arguments. Bringing opposing styles of communication and conflict can cause challenges in a relationship.

Gender differences may also play a role and spark your interest in learning to communicate more effectively. Men often learn at a young age that it’s not “manly” to express tender emotions, while women may be discouraged from expressing anger or frustration. 

For a relationship to thrive, both partners need to be comfortable, confident and capable of expressing a full range of emotions in a healthy, constructive, respectful way.

During a Couples Retreat  that focuses on helping you and your partner communicate more effectively, you’ll become more comfortable with yourself and your emotions. You’ll also explore ways to express yourself and communicate with your soulmate in a healthy way that nurtures your relationship.

Your Couples Retreat may even include healing sessions designed to help you overcome blocks in your communication or repair rifts caused by ineffective communication or hurts in the past.

The more intimate and connected relationship you desire is waiting for you…and more effective communication will get you there.

The 2020 Best Couples Retreat for Healing a Relationship

Creating a good relationship requires consistent work and dedicated attention. If you find that your relationship has deteriorated and is even struggling, 2020 may be the year for a Couples Retreat dedicated to healing your relationship.

Your relationship may be in crisis…perhaps even on its last legs. It’s not unusual to have couples contact us for help in creating a custom-designed retreat to help heal their relationship from infidelity, years of neglect, or even a major life transition.

A Couples Retreat can be a magical solution to helping you heal your relationship in a matter of days.

Your journey begins with a private conversation with one of our highly trained Angel Guides. You’ll create a joint vision of what you want your relationship to look like and have an open conversation about where things have fallen apart. 

We’ll then select a series of healers and experiences to create the healing journey you need to repair your relationship and put it on solid footing to be the joyful, fulfilling experience you’ve dreamed it could be.

You have been called from an inner voice — now it’s time to follow through on the most important choice in your lifetime!

Happy Valentine’s Day! The day of love and lovers. 

happy valentines day

On this special day, I want to tell you about something I’ve come to believe, just in the past year, about relationships. It’s something that seems like I should have known this all along and when you hear it, you’re probably going to say something like, “Well, of course, Debra, everybody knows that.” 

But just stay with me for a moment because I think you might be surprised to find out that what I think the #1 thing that you either have or don’t have in your relationship, that either makes it or breaks it and that is…

Are you nurturing each other?
Does your beloved nurture you?
And are you nurturing your beloved? 

It seems like a simple question, but it’s not at all. Because it’s about a way of being. It’s a decision you’re making, in every moment.  

Do you truly want to nurture your beloved?  

Do you want to nurture them in the way they want to be nurtured? 

love-crazy

Or are you constantly picking at them, criticizing them and thinking nasty thoughts about them?

As most of you know, I was a divorce attorney for over 20 years and now I’ve done couples work in Sedona for almost 20 years. It appears to me that relationships are either mainly in the “I love you” zone or the “You drive me crazy” zone. And it seems like once you’ve rounded the corner into the “you drive me crazy” zone, there’s not much going back unless you really do something about it.

couple avoiding

There are basic problems that seem to show up a lot when the nurturing factor isn’t there. And in my experience, there are things that seem unique to women and unique to men. This is also borne out in John Grey’s Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus series of books (so please don’t write me that I’m stereotyping — I’ve watched this for almost 40 years!). 

mars and venus

If you’re a woman, do you: 

  • Complain a lot to your partner? 
  • Complain about your partner to other people?
  • Have you taken everything over because he won’t do the stuff you want him to do, in the way you want him to do it? 
tune out

If you’re a man: 

  • Are you engaging emotionally with your partner? 
  • Are you able to just sit and listen to your partner or do you always give advice, even when it’s not asked for?
  • Are there times when you simply tune your partner out? 

These are all danger signs. Big signals telling you, “STOP! You’ve got to do something here.”

If you’re a woman, stop complaining and stop doing everything because he’s not doing it right.

i want to nurture

If you’re a man, start listening and start really engaging emotionally with her.  

The biggest thing, is that you both have to make this basic decision: “I love this person and I want to nurture them.”  

So many books and articles say that communication is the most important thing in a relationship and of course, communication is extremely important, but think about it…

communication

Deciding to truly nurture your partner is at another layer below communication and everything else. If you are in nurturing mode, your communication will always be wonderful, the way you treat them will always be wonderful, and you’ll be having the perfect amount of sex and time together, because it will be based on each of you nurturing the other. 

nurture your partner

If you’re finding that you’re out of the nurturing zone, you can recognize that and you can do something about it. You literally can shift everything around by making this simple decision:

I want to nurture this person and I’m going to figure out how to do that.

drop resentments

It takes 

  • Willingness 
  • Dropping your resentments about what’s happened in the past 
  • Coming back into loving connection 

Now I know, doing these things is easier said than done. Letting go of past resentments is usually pretty difficult for both parties and that’s usually what’s holding one or both of you back from really getting into and staying in the nurturing zone.  

Or maybe you don’t have clarity about what you truly want. It’s hard to go out of your way to do something for the other person when you’re maybe not 100% sure that you want to be with them. 

happy couple sunset

Let us help you get back into the nurturing zone. Come to Sedona and do a Couples Retreat. Give it to yourselves as a Valentine’s Day present. Wouldn’t that be the most amazing present you’ve ever had? Coming back into the love and connection that brought you together in the first place? 

Call us and connect with one of our Angel Guides. They’ll connect with both of you separately and really dig deep to discover what’s keeping you out of the nurturing zone. Then they’ll put together a retreat that’s custom designed for exactly what you need and want, to bring you back into the love and connection and sizzle that you crave, giving you tools to stay in the nurturing zone forever.

More Sex, Fight Fair and Let Go of the Past

All this month, I’ve been sending you videos about how to have a fabulous New Year and New Decade. As part of that, I want to tell you three very specific things you can do right now for having your relationship be fantastic in 2020. And each of these things are backed up by scientific studies, which I love!

Give a listen – this could save your relationship! Or send it to someone (your partner, maybe?) who might benefit from it.

Relationships are hard. I know – I was a divorce attorney for 20 years, I’ve been doing couples work with Sedona Soul Adventures for almost 20 years and I’ve been married more than once. 

I’m happy to say I’m in a blissful marriage now, but one of the reasons it’s blissful is because I practice what I preach. I do the three specific tips I just gave you and when something is going on, my husband and I do sessions with our practitioners here, because they are the best of the best and sometimes you just need to hear something from a third person. 

We all need help, once in a while – even me!

Do you need help? Does your relationship need help? If your relationship is on the wrong path right now, you’ve got to do something to turn it in the right direction.

Give us a call and let us custom design the perfect retreat for the two of you.

I love this post from Rachel on Facebook:

Wouldn’t you love to have all that happen for you and your relationship?

  • To thrive more as a couple
  • To thrive more as an individual
  • To thrive more as a parent
  • To really show up for each other and in your lives
  • To have your relationship feel NEW

To have a whole new relationship, that’s what happens when people do a Couples Soul Adventure. Call us and let’s get one started for you.

couple red rocks

Most of you who have been watching my videos over the years know that I was a divorce attorney for over 20 years in Omaha, Nebraska and then after that, I’ve spent almost 20 years working with couples through Sedona Soul Adventures – so I have almost 40 years experience of working with couples.

Today I want to give you 3 specific tips for making your relationship stronger.

What I love about these is that they are actually based on scientific studies. I love it when studies prove things that we intuitively already know. 

have sex often

The first one is one – and when you first hear it, you’re probably going to say something like, “Duh, Debra, everybody knows that” – but I want you to really listen to it. Here it is: 

If you want your relationship to thrive, you should be having sex often and regularly. 

And here’s why:

woman staring out window

Because studies have shown there is a direct correlation between how often you have sex and the positive feelings you have about your partner. The more frequently partners had sex, the more positive their implicit, or gut-level, positive feelings about the relationship were. This is according to a study in Psychological Science. 

implicit attitude

So let me explain exactly what this means. Your implicit feeling about your partner is your automatic response to them. Let’s say they walk in the door at the end of the day and you’re tired and know you have to make dinner. The study researchers reported,  “When you’re tired and don’t have the energy to think about how you feel about your partner, the implicit attitude you have toward them is the one that will come out and influence the way you treat them.” 

Of course we all know that, but here’s the kicker: in the study, the more people had sex, the more their implicit response – their automatic response to their partner – was positive. So by having more sex, you’re increasing the likelihood that your automatic response to your partner, the response you don’t even think about, will be positive. 

have more sex

And how do you want to feel about your partner? You want to automatically feel good about them. Ergo, have more sex. 

One of the things that’s been so heartbreaking for me, both when I was a divorce attorney and now after all these years of working with couples at Sedona Soul Adventures, is to find out the number of couples who have not had sex in a really, really long time. I mean 2 ½ years, 5 years, even 10 years. It’s such an indicator of what’s going on in the relationship. And sometimes there ARE things going on – anger, mistrust, upset with the other person – but if you allow those to linger, if you don’t take steps to fix them, that’s when you’re going to have long term trouble, the kind of trouble that leads to divorce and separation. 

fight fair

Which leads us to Tip No. 2:

Figure out how to fight fair.

Anger and Stonewalling don’t work, they lead to health problems and long term unhappiness.

Again, “duh,” but really listen to this because I love what this study found. They followed 156 couples over a 20 year period, observing the same couples every 5 years, and found that people who get really angry in arguing with their spouse have a greatly increased risk of heart disease. 

increased heart disease

The people who stonewall (meaning, “I don’t want to talk about his right now”) and so then they never really deal with their problems, were much more likely to develop musculoskeletal problems, meaning back pain. The other thing I loved about this study is that the researchers said in their report that a lot of the couples in this study had the same conflict year in and year out, and they usually discussed it in eerily similar terms. Dr. Robert Levenson of UC Berkeley said, “Sometimes we’d be listening in and wondering, ‘Is this the same conversation they had five years ago?’” 

anger and stonewalling

Anger doesn’t work. Stonewalling doesn’t work. It can give you heart disease and back pain, and lead to years of unhappiness. You’ve got to figure out a better way of communicating with each other than getting angry or giving the other person the silent treatment. 

And this leads directly to the 3rd tip:

leave the past

Leave the past In the past.

If you work through a hardship together and come to a positive resolution, move past it and use the experience as an opportunity to learn and grow. Don’t keep throwing it in your partner’s face during arguments, don’t use it to guilt-trip your partner, and try not to assume that just because something happened once, it will happen again. What’s passed is past, and rehashing old ugliness will just poison future happiness. Let it go. 

poison future happiness

I know from my own personal experience and also from working with couples how hard this is. We had a couple here this year who two years ago, the man had an emotional relationship with someone at work. Nothing sexual ever happened and he stopped it when he realized where it was going and told his wife about it. She was understandably very upset, but even after two years of therapy, she simply could not let this go and she continually accused him of doing it again – although he never did – and she was jealous and angry and becoming really nasty with him all the time. 

They were on the verge of divorce when they came to us and we discovered that she had some core wounds from her childhood around not being worthy of love. That’s what was preventing her from letting this go. When she really got it that it was her own feelings of not being loveable, not his behavior that was really causing the problem, she was able to let it go and they were more in love than ever, saving their marriage, which I was especially happy for because they have two young children.  

let go of the past

If your relationship and your family is important to you, you have to find a way to let go of the past and reclaim the love the two of you have. 

And of course, sometimes that’s a whole lot easier said than done. Sometimes we just can’t get beyond things that have happened, especially if they involve trust or betrayal. But the question is: Do you want to hold onto that or do you want to hold onto your marriage and your family? 

So here are the tips: 

sizzle
  1. Have more sex  
  2. Learn how to disagree without anger and stonewalling
  3. Let go of the past 

How are you doing with those? Is your relationship where you want it to be? Does it still Sizzle like it used to? Is your partner your best friend?

If not, I can tell you that you’re on a difficult road, a road that is probably going to lead you someplace you don’t want to go. So you have two choices:

two choices
  1. Do something about it, or 
  2. Get more and more miserable

The second choice is what a lot of people do for a long period of time before they simply can’t stand it anymore and they split up. I don’t want that for you. I don’t want that for your family.

Our couples retreats are so powerful because they are custom designed for exactly what the two of you need.

First, we’ll talk to each of you separately before you even come to Sedona, really digging deep to get to the causes of the problems and what got you here. The problems that got you here in the first place are different for everybody and need to be treated in the specific ways that you need. 

custom design

Then we’ll custom design your retreat and when you come to Sedona, you’ll be working one-on-one with the Master Practitioners here, some of whom have over 20 years of working with couples. Your sessions will be completely private. You won’t be in a group where you’ll have to air your dirty laundry in front of a lot of strangers. You’ll be working privately with people who are caring and compassionate, helping you to move through the blocks and gunk that have brought you here and bringing you back into connection. Connection with yourself, connection with your beloved and connection with that third thing which is your relationship. 

We’ve had so many people come to us on the verge of divorce, sometimes with the papers already signed, and we’ve turned things around and brought them back to the love that brought them together in the first place. And we’ve had so many people where the sizzle is gone and they want to take their relationship to the next level – really bringing in the love and connection that is so juicy and wonderful and satisfying.

I hope this helped, and if you got value from this video, please like, share the video with someone you think might get something out of it and subscribe to our channel

But if you’re ready to have the relationship of your dreams and move through the problems of the past, call us at (928) 204-5988 today to talk to us so that we can custom design the perfect retreat for your needs and desires. 

We all want to be loved in the way we want to be loved. Sometimes we need help finding that. If this is something you’re searching for, please call us – or if you’d like more information, go to SedonaRetreatGuide.com and get your complimentary copy of The Sedona Guide to Couples Retreats today.
