4 Questions that Helped Me Very Much - Sedona Soul Adventures

4 Questions that Helped Me Very Much

I was struck this week to come across this exercise that I did at a business workshop almost ten years ago. At the time, even though this was a business workshop (and not a spiritual workshop), answering these questions turned out to be highly spiritual, incredibly insightful and tremendously helpful for me – and I thought they might be for you as well.

I’m hoping that if you’ll take 10 minutes to answer these questions, they could turn out to be as helpful for you as they were for me.

1. What’s frustrating you the most right now?
Isn’t this a great question? It really gets to the heart of what’s eating you. I know for so many people who come to us, they feel like they’re at the end of their rope, some life situation is driving them crazy, or worse, they feel they are not living their best life. That’s got to be one of the most frustrating things in the world, to have this feeling that you are capable of living a happy, joyful, wonderful life, but you just don’t have the tools to do it. That’s exactly how I felt before I first came to Sedona over 20 years ago.

2. What do you want to have happen this year?
Wow, doesn’t that just zero in on it? I love this question. It makes it so immediate. Especially after the last year we’ve all had, wouldn’t it be great to have something really amazing and incredible happen in this next year? What would that be for you?

3. What have you tried in the past that’s worked and what have you tried in the past that hasn’t worked?
This one really hits close to home for me because before I came to Sedona, I had read every book, done so many retreats, done so many workshops, done therapy, and nothing ever really seemed to help. It wasn’t until I was doing one-on-one sessions that were focused completely on me that I really got to the heart of what was happening with me and it changed everything for me.

4. What would it take for you to double your happiness during the next year?
I love this one so much because it takes out the complaining aspect of everything that’s wrong and puts it right into your lap. What would double your happiness during this next year? Again, after this last year, isn’t it delicious to even think about the idea of doubling your happiness? It’s especially fun to answer this question from the standpoint of really knowing that it can happen!

I especially loved reading these questions because they pointed out to me, once again, why a Sedona Soul Adventures retreat is so important. Because literally, we can help identify the source and the blocks that are holding you back and move you into the space of becoming that person who is living a happy, joyful, abundant life. And the best part is – it works!

Call us at (928) 204-5988 or click here and one of our Angel Guides will call you. They’ll connect with you (or both of you if it’s a couple) and custom design a retreat that will allow you to live the life you want, have the relationship you’re craving and it might even double your happiness over the next year!

Special moments in Machu Picchu and Peru

Kissing in Machu Picchu

I was flipping through all the photos I have from doing the Peru trip for over 13 years (!) and I was trying to find an especially impressive photo of Machu Picchu. Instead, I just kept coming across different photos of people having special moments on our trips over the years and I found myself saying things like, “Oh, that was so great!” or, “There’s Martina, I love her so much” and, “Look at that beautiful wedding.” We’ve had so many special moments and that’s what happens on these trips — incredible transformations happen and then you have these times when these sweet things happen that you think about years later.


Five years ago we had two people from Canada who contacted me and asked if they could get married while we were in Peru. At first I thought it would be a daunting task, but everyone in Jorge’s office was so excited, gracious and helpful. Here they are kissing at Machu Picchu…

And here’s a photo of everyone from our group at their wedding. They were married right on the shores of Lake Titicaca. It was so sweet and so special, one of my sweetest memories from all the years I’ve gone to Peru.

And here’s Martina connecting with one of the llamas that are at Machu Picchu. They roam all over the place, but it’s special to have them come up to you and really connect, it’s so soulful.

This is one of my favorite moments, where I captured Pamela meditating at Lake Titicaca. Can you just feel the gentle energy emanating from her? You can almost see it. Peaceful, calm and gentle, that’s what happens when we allow these energies to come in.


These special moments are so wonderful and they really demonstrate the specialness of the trip. Being in the energies of these amazing places, really connecting in, connecting with other like-minded seekers, it’s the journey of a lifetime.
