This Will be Powerful for You (4 Amazing Questions)
I was noodling around in my computer earlier this week and found a questionnaire I had completed back in 2012. Wow – that seems so far away!
I had gone to a workshop in California that was a business workshop, not a spiritual workshop (oh the days when we could just jump on a plane and easily go to California and sit in a hotel conference room with a thousand other people and think nothing of it). I answered these 4 Questions that turned out to be highly spiritual, incredibly insightful, and tremendously helpful.
I was amazed to discover that everything I said I wanted in my answers had actually happened!
I think if you take 10 minutes to answer these questions, it will be tremendously profound for you.
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 or their relationship isn’t giving them all that they want. 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.
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. So what do you want to have happen this year? Wouldn’t it be great to have something really amazing and incredible happen? What would that be for you? You’ve still got 4 months left this year to make it happen, a lot can happen in 4 months.
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 for the first time 21 years ago I had read every book, done so many group retreats, done so many workshops, done therapy, and nothing ever really seemed to help. It wasn’t until I was doing one-on-one private sessions that were focused completely on me with the Masters here in Sedona that I really got to the heart of what I needed.
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? It’s especially fun to answer this question from the standpoint of really knowing that it can happen!
So what are the answers to these questions for you?
And of course, I loved 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 blocks that are causing the frustrations and help move you into the space of becoming that person who is living a happy, joyful, abundant purpose-driven life. And the best part is – it works!

Did you know we were named Best in Sedona for Retreats in 2020 and 2021? And Best Marriage Retreats in the US 5 years in a row? It’s because our retreats work.
Would you like to speak to someone today about doing a retreat?
We’re even open on Sunday, because we’re here for you!
And remember, there’s no cost or obligation and you can do it At-Home or here in Sedona.
Kelly says after my Soul Adventure “I am love, I am worthy, and I am an amazing woman.”

Would you like to learn about a way to give yourself a happier, healthier life? Then join us for our new “Compassion Cultivation Training” 8-week online class – starting September 14, 2021.
Compassion is perhaps the most powerful and effective tool you can use to care for yourself and improve your relationships. Compassion Training builds mental habits that, over time, are demonstrated to open the heart and promote personal well-being, resilience, and meaningful connections, even in challenging circumstances.
Existing research shows that mindfulness and compassion training can meaningfully reduce the symptoms of stress and burnout and improve health outcomes.
We all face difficult situations, challenging relationships, and internal thoughts and beliefs that prevent us from experiencing the best life has to offer. When we become more aware, open, and curious about the world and people around us, we learn to use our natural compassion in practical ways to navigate life’s toughest personal challenges and begin to move through life’s ups and downs with greater confidence and ease.
Practicing compassion can alleviate our worries and fears so we can become powerful forces for good – in our relationships, families, workplaces, and communities.
The Compassion Cultivation Training (CCT) is an 8-week online course developed in 2009 at Stanford University (CCARE — Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education) by experts in contemplative studies, psychology, neuroscience, and adult education. The Compassion Cultivation Training© (CCT™) is backed by scientific research and 10,000+ alumni worldwide.
Throughout the training, we help you lean into challenges, build the courage to take compassionate action, manage your emotions, and develop your resilience to prevent empathy fatigue.
The course includes:
- Weekly 2-hour online classes including lecture, discussion, and in-class exercises
- Daily meditation practices
- Real-world assignments for practicing compassionate thoughts and actions
- Each class will be recorded (but live participation is highly recommended for the biggest benefit.
I hope you can join us – you’ll be glad you did.
