As we’ve said before, Sedona is truly a special place. Not only is it breathtakingly beautiful, from a natural, physical standpoint, but it also has a unique “energy” that truly supports people in their personal growth. It’s considered a sacred place by most Native Americans, and a “place of power” by many spiritual seekers around the globe.
As long-time Sedona residents, we can attest to the fact that this is all quite real. When people come here, their growth is often dramatically accelerated and enhanced. It’s like the “volume” here is turned up on all things spiritual. I’ve experienced it myself – and that’s actually one of the main reasons why Sedona Soul Adventures was founded.
And, because of the nature of this special energy, Sedona also attracts a wide variety of wonderful healers. Bodyworkers, psychics and intuitives, spirit guides, sound healers, energy workers – virtually every modality of personal and spirtual growth and healing arts of every kind are represented in our little community. It’s just a natural fit.
Like many other similar places, however, Sedona also attracts the far-out, the spaced-out, and the just plain weird. That’s why it can be a little challenging, especially if you don’t live here, to tell in advance who’s “for real”, and who isn’t.
Part of the problem is that with some less “conventional” modalities, there’s no licensing body, or objective measure of credibility and effectiveness. A psychotherapist, for example, needs to have a license from the state. But what about someone like a clairvoyant or psychic, or a “soul reader”. No licensing is required and someone like that could be absolutely wonderful, providing a profound, life-changing experience, or…not so much.
So, in order to tell who would be a great practitioner, and who wouldn’t, it ‘s really helpful to know folks “on the ground” in Sedona who know what’s what and who’s who. Here at Sedona Soul Adventures, we have taken things a step further. So that we can be absolutely sure about the quality and integrity of the practitioners we use, we have personally experienced multiple sessions from everyone we’re considering to be part of our family of practitioners. There’s just no substitute for direct experience. That way you can rest assured that practitioners who are working with you are highly skilled professionals with years of experience in which we have the highest confidence.

A few years ago I realized I didn’t love myself. Here I had been doing all this “spiritual” work for so many years and suddenly I realized that the very core of it, the very essence of it, is to truly love yourself and I wasn’t doing that.
Then suddenly one day I was doing a meditation and a voice came into my head and started saying “there’s nothing wrong with you”, “there’s nothing wrong with you”. My body was vibrating and I knew that something was happening.
It wasn’t an overnight turn-around, but ever since then I have figured out how to love myself pretty much most of the time.
Here are some of the Secrets to Loving Yourself:
1) Make the decision to start loving yourself. I know that sounds simple and basic, but it’s not. Make the decision and the intention right now that no matter what, you love yourself.
2) Do a 40 day Gratitude Journal on loving yourself. If you read our newsletters, you know I’m a fan of Gratitude Journals. Make the decision that for the next 40 days you are going to get up each morning and spend just a few minutes writing down 3 things that you really, honestly like or love about yourself. And if you can add some feeling to it, all the better. Just remember to do it every day for 40 days, as this will break the old cycle.
3) Stop saying nasty things to yourself. I used to say to myself “you are so stupid”, “you are so fat”, I could go on and on. Do you do that to yourself? It’s so incredibly damaging. Stop it. Just stop it right now. When you think about it (and no matter what spiritual practice you follow, this applies), Jesus wouldn’t talk to you like that, the Buddha wouldn’t talk to you like that, your Angels and Guides wouldn’t talk to you like that, so who do you think you are to talk trash like that to yourself? You have the power to think the thoughts you want to think, just move out the negative ones and have some better ones standing by to replace them — “You’re great”, “You’re really trying hard, I like that about you”.
4) When you wake up in the morning before you get up, take few deep breaths and say “I love me” a few times. Again, even though it sounds simple, this is extraordinarily powerful.
Coming into a place of loving myself and not judging myself has had profound effects on my life. I went from size 14 to size 6 (see below). Everyone says I look younger, I feel better and I’m much kinder to the people around me. Positive energy can make an incredible difference in your life.
