3 reasons why the Brad and Angelina thing is important for you

Although it might seem rather vacuous to be interested in Brad and Angelina,
okay, stop right there, you might be thinking, what the heck does “vacuous” mean? I kept trying to come up with the appropriate word (I was coming up with “stupid”, “not spiritual”, “low minded”) and I know the word “vacuous” so I looked it up and sure enough the definition is: “silly, inane, unintelligent, insipid, foolish, stupid, fatuous, idiotic, brainless, witless, vapid, vacant, empty-headed; dumb, moronic, brain-dead, fluffy, fluffball.”
I love finding words that have so many meanings and are so nuanced.
Okay, back to the topic — While on some level it might seem foolish and unintelligent and brainless and vapid and fluffball, and even though it might feel like we’re gossiping, that’s not what this is about. When I heard the news, I literally exclaimed out loud “Oh no!” and I genuinely cared. My very first thought was, “if people like that who seem to have everything can’t make it work, who can?”
So here are 3 reasons why this situation offers you some important life lessons:
1.  It’s never the stuff on the outside that makes us happy and content, it’s always the stuff on the inside.
I spent so much of my life telling myself that I couldn’t be happy until I had        _______________. It was always something — more money, thinner body, better relationship. I talk about this a lot in my new book, The Journey to Happy, [coming next month!] because one of the huge aspects of the Journey for me was finally getting it, that it is NEVER about the outside stuff making us happy, it’s always the inside job.
And I see it now with people that we work with all the time. They tell themselves they can’t be happy unless and until they have the great job, a certain amount of money, until they’re thin, have the great relationship, etc., etc.
Here are 2 people who (seemingly) had it all. I mean, really, these two had everything — beauty, brains, money, love, children, fabulous homes, travel, exciting careers, an interest in helping other people (and the means to do it). And it still wasn’t enough.
2. Another person can’t make you happy, only you can make you happy.
If Brad Pitt can’t make you happy, what does it take? Well, the answer is very simple. Another person can’t make you happy. A fabulous, loving relationship can add greatly to your happiness, but it simply isn’t going to make you happy if you’re not already basically happy. If you want to be happy, you’ve got to find a way to be happy within yourself.
3. You can’t take anything for granted in life (or in relationship). If stuff is going on, it’s got to be dealt with.
The internet is awash with rumors about what went wrong. I don’t know what it was, but I do know this. If stuff is going on in your life (or your relationship), you’ve got to do something about it. And if you don’t, things start to fall apart.
What’s the stuff you’ve got going on? Are you happy? Are you unhappy?
Are you living your life in peace and fulfillment or are you stressed out and burned out?
Do you feel calm most of the time, or fearful and anxious?
Are you happy in your relationship or do you know there are issues that need to be addressed?
Are you living your life purpose or stuck in a job you hate?
If stuff is going on, it’s got to be dealt with. It’s as simple as that. If you don’t deal with it directly, you’ll end up dealing with it in some other way. For a lot of people if they don’t deal with something head on, they end up getting sick. As one of my teachers used to say, you can deal with it now while the Universe is nudging you, or you can wait until they hit you with a 2 x 4. Your choice.
Don’t wait until the Universe hits you with a 2 x 4. Do something. Now.
You deserve to have a happy, blissful life and a wonderful, loving, supportive relationship.
Don’t wait. We’ve had so many people come here after a divorce and tell us “I was blindsided. I had no idea she (or he) was so unhappy”. You know when something has to be dealt with.
Connect with us and speak with one of our Angel Guides. They’ll connect with you (or both of you if it’s a couple) and in this deep conversation, they’ll figure out what the “stuff” is that needs to be dealt with and they’ll custom design the retreat that is perfect for YOU. For the life or the relationship you’re craving.

Why you should care about the Sedona Vortex Energy

I’ve had 3 occurrences in the past week regarding the Sedona Vortex energies, so that tells me I need to talk to you about it, especially about why it’s something you should care about.
The major thing that happened is that I was interviewed by The Arizona Republic, which is the Phoenix newspaper. It’s so funny, because The Arizona Republic is one of the straightest, most conservative newspapers in the country, so I love it that they contacted me to ask about the Vortex Energy in Sedona! They’re doing it as part of their on-going series of “Only In Arizona” and they’re right — there is no other place where this happens.
The next thing that happened was that a new client came in and asked about the Vortex Energy (which happens a lot). The third occurrence was that Bashar (the internationally known channel) was in Sedona last week-end and I went to see him and he talked about Sedona. Here’s what he says:
“Sedona is a powerful, transformational vortex unparalleled in its own way, unique in its own way, that allows for communication and connection to multiple dimensions of reality on your world.”
He went on to explain that when he says unparalleled and unique, he means that there is literally no other place on the planet where this takes place. My favorite part was him talking about how the vortex energy of Sedona causes everything to be amplified, meaning energy is amplified, love is amplified, connection is amplified, disconnection is amplified. Whatever you bring to Sedona is magnified and amplified. Thoughts, feelings, vibrations, whether positive or negative, will be more greatly enhanced and intensified on all the levels – physical, mental, emotional, spiritual.
So that’s why you should care about the Sedona Vortex Energy. Knowing there is a place you can go where everything is amplified and which allows for connection to multiple dimensions. When you combine that with the amazing practitioners who come here from all over the world to do their work, and the intense energy that people bring who come here and want to have their lives transformed, you have what I call “The Sedona Effect”. This amazing combination makes real transformation happen quickly and easily. And it’s transformation that lasts.
Are you ready to let the Sedona Effect work its magic on you? If you have an intense desire to have transformation in your life, then you already have the third element. So all you have to do now are the other two:
1) Come to Sedona and
2) Work with our amazing practitioners. They are masters at utilizing the incredible Sedona energy to achieve true transformation that lasts.
Connect with us and find out what a Sedona Soul Adventures retreat can do for you. Speak with one of our Angel Guides (they’re the people who design the retreats). They’ll connect with you (or both of you, if it’s a couple). They’ll  get to the heart of the matter and design the perfect retreat to bring you into the life or relationship of your dreams.

Pam says “the combination of Sedona’s energy and the outstanding practitioners gave me invaluable tools to nurture my spirit and steady my soul.”
“I accidentally stumbled onto Sedona Soul Adventures’ Web site while surfing the Internet and knew that it was something I wanted to do. Knowing there are no accidents, about a year later, I found the circumstances of my life swirling around in a way that left me questioning my life’s purpose. I decided that it was the perfect time to head to Sedona for a Soul Adventure. The combination of Sedona’s energy and the outstanding practitioners gave me invaluable tools to nurture my spirit and steady my soul.”

linda-hallberg-egyptConnect with the powerful energy of ancient Egypt – Feb. 12-26, 2017
Egypt is one of the highest energy places I have ever experienced. Coming to Egypt will make transformations happen that you can’t even imagine. Come with us on this trip of a lifetime – Feb. 12-26, 2017
Look at those happy faces feeling the energy from our Egypt tour a few years ago. Cindy, the woman in the middle, became a major spiritual teacher after this trip. What a transformation!
“I’ve traveled all over the world and I have to say my trip to Egypt with Sedona Soul Adventures was the most incredible experience I’ve ever had. It brought me into self realization and believing in myself. I now know in my heart that everything is possible. Even six months later, I’m still putting together pieces that happened there and applying them in my everyday life and growing every day.”

You just have to decide and then take action.

They’ll connect with you and get at the root of what’s going on with you, what’s holding you back and (the best part) what are your deepest dreams and desires, what do you truly want?

Darren says “Sedona Soul Adventures is the single best decision I have ever made for myself and the ones I love”
“I truly believe and know in my heart that I would not be living life today had I not found Soul Adventures. My beliefs have changed. My heart is full. My patterns are different. My old self that was full of pain and prevented me from moving forward was left in the desert somewhere. My new self is pure of thought and full of love for myself and those around me. I am the being I was meant to be born into this world. There may be those who read this and are saying to themselves “yeah, right how can anything change a person’s life that much?” That resistance is a great indication that this is for you, as I was that person at one time. The resistance I had was the refusal to look at myself. I chose to face myself and did the work and gained my life back. Sedona Soul Adventures is the single best decision I have ever made for myself and the ones I love. My life has changed completely. Difficult decisions have become easy. Difficult people at work have become pleasant and easy to deal with. My relationship with the lady I love is deep and loving. My children have become happier, outgoing and confident. Good things are happening in a short period of time because I changed me. If it sounds simple, it is! Change ourselves and everything around us changes. Thank you for this opportunity to share my thoughts and feelings. Forever loving and grateful.”

Debra_JorgeDecide to go to Machu Picchu with me this June 17-30 2017
The Peru trip is so incredible — Machu Picchu, Lake Titicaca, Ollantaytambo, Cusco, the Sacred Valley. Come with us on a transformational journey to this amazing place. Spending 2 weeks with Jorge Luis Delgado, our incredible shaman and guide, is life changing. Doing ceremony at Machu Picchu on the Solstice, traveling with other like minded adventurers — it truly is the trip of a lifetime.
“The Sedona Soul Adventures Peru Trip in June was AMAZING! Jorge is an extraordinary guide, teacher and spiritual Master. I will be forever grateful for this trip and the positive impact it has had on my life.”

Suzanne West


Why going on our Peru trip will make you happier (June 17-30, 2017)

Look at that picture of Machu Picchu. Doesn’t it just “get” you? Doesn’t it just speak to something in your being?
Experiencing Machu Picchu in the very, very special way that we do with our shaman and guide, Jorge Luis Delgado, is such an incredible, amazing, life changing experience. And I can’t describe it to you, because I don’t want to spoil the surprise!
And we will be in Machu Picchu on the solstice, June 21 – can you imagine!?!
One of the people who went on one of the past trips (who I now consider a dear friend) said to me, “Debra you just need to tell people how absolutely incredible and amazing and wonderful this trip is” and I replied, “Stephanie, I try!”. The problem is, there simply aren’t words to describe the incredible combination of what happens on this trip:

  • the teachings of Jorge Luis, our incredible shaman
  • the amazing ceremonies, meditations and initiations
  • visiting places that are so ancient from time out of mind
  • experiencing the other worldly energies of Machu Picchu and the Sacred Valley
  • spending the night with a local family on the island of Amantani in the middle of Lake Titicaca
  • experiencing the gateway of Aramu Muru, which was re-discovered by Jorge Luis
  • journeying with other like-minded seekers and making friendships that last a lifetime
  • the tools you will receive to incorporate these energies into every part of your life

I asked Stephanie to write about her experience and here’s what she said:
“The Peru trip exceeded all of my expectations. Peru has been on my bucket list for many years…. I went into the trip not knowing what to expect, keeping an open mind and letting Sedona Soul Adventures guide my path. I did very little to prepare for the trip (as far as research) since I could tell once I booked, that every detail was taken care of. I loved the packet Debra sent giving details of sites we would be visiting, what we needed to bring etc. She regularly sent us updates as the date approached with reminders of things – I felt so taken care of. I felt so fortunate to be on this tour. It was clear once I landed in Lima that every detail had been covered, taking the stress and guess work out of foreign travel. Jorge was such an amazing guide, his knowledge of Peru is amazing! We saw things that I never would have seen (or experienced) had it not been for Jorge and his love and knowledge of his beautiful country. Both Jorge and Debra helped guide me through spiritual healing that has been needed to free my mind and spirit from past resentments, fears and pain. All of the ceremonies were beautiful and enlightening. Ever since I came home my family has made comments about how happy I seem. I really am – I feel better!  I look forward to taking what I’ve learned on this trip from not only Jorge and Debra, but also from the others in our group. I formed friendships during this trip that I know will last a very long time. I most definitely give every aspect of this trip a 10!”
Stephanie Springel
Debra_JorgeOn this journey to Peru, the planetary heart center, we will take the Shaman’s journey inward within ourselves. We will work to explore our depths, to rediscover our essence, to remember who we are, why we are here at this time and to find our place of service. Simply by placing ourselves in the center of the powerful, mystical energies of Peru, shifts and activations of new levels of awareness and new states of consciousness will occur within us.
Why going to Peru will make you happier: I read an interesting article in the New York Times while I was in Peru (on my iPad). It was a report on a study about money and happiness. They looked at how much more money did people need in order to be happier and how spending the money made them happy or not. One of the things they discovered was that people think that if they made twice as much money that they would be twice as happy. But the study showed that people who had doubled their income only reported a happiness increase of about 5%. The other part of the study showed that buying lots of “stuff” didn’t increase happiness at all, but that spending money on family and friends and on significant trips made people the happiest. I was especially interested in that because I know from all the years that I’ve led these sacred journeys, I’ve never had anyone say anything but, “that was one of the best things I’ve ever done for myself”. I still stay in regular contact with people I traveled with over 10 years ago, and these are some of the deepest relationships of my life. I’ve had so many people go on both the Egypt and Peru trips and the most common thing I hear from them is about how those trips absolutely had changed our lives and continued to impact us to this day.
Stephanie told me I need to tell you how absolutely incredible, amazing and wonderful this trip is. I hope I’ve accomplished that.
But more than that, I hope you will connect with yourself and give yourself this amazing gift.
And remember, you don’t have to have completed a Sedona Soul Adventures retreat to go on the Peru trip. Some people have, but it’s not a requirement.
