April 2017 - Sedona Soul Adventures


Monthly Archives: April 2017

Here’s all you have to do to get everything you want

If you’ve received my newsletters for very long, you’ll know that I’m a huge fan of Abraham. Their teachings have been so instrumental in my life and they are also very important in the work we do here at Sedona Soul Adventures.
For over 25 years, I’ve received their monthly recordings — first as cassette tapes, then as CDs and now as MP3s. Isn’t it interesting all the technology that’s happened during that time?
The monthly recording I received this week was especially impactful. They teach that we are all creating our reality in every moment. And they literally gave the recipe for having a happy, healthy, abundant, rewarding life and it’s pretty simple.
Be easy. Do less. Be nicer to yourself.
Here’s exactly what they said:
Be nicer to yourself
Take it easier
Put in a little less time on the things you feel you need to do
Spend more time doing the things you really want to do
Don’t pick a fight
Don’t fight back
Look for things that are humorous and funny
Spend more time by yourself
Get outside more
Look at the advantages that this time/space reality is yielding to you
Find appreciation for the beauty that this planet is yielding to you
Spend more time around animals (they are more allowing)
Tell your human friends you love them and you’ll see them later
Be easier about everything
Be more playful about everything
Be more consciously selfish for yourself
Do more of the things that feel good to you
Let your “Things To Do Today” list wait until tomorrow and the next day and the next day
Be easy, and watch what happens
If you apply this, you will see so much evidence of what you have been asking for because you deserve it, you’re ready for it and there’s only been one thing that’s been holding it off and that is:
you’re working too hard,
you’re trying too hard,
you’re making it about action rather than vibration.
I know what some of you are thinking. This flies in the face of everything we’ve been taught. I know that for myself, growing up in my German Catholic family, my parents taught me that working harder would get me what I wanted.
When I got out in the world, though, I discovered that just ain’t so.
And through the course of the past 25 years, I’ve discovered that the more I let go of pushing, demanding and working so hard, things just seem to start to flow.
It’s very simple, but it’s not easy. But I can guarantee you, that whenever I go with the flow, that’s when everything flows in the most amazing ways.
When I first came to Sedona in 1999, every part of my life was messed up. I hated my work, I was in debt, I was 40 pounds overweight, and I was in an unhappy marriage. Even though I was listening to the Abraham teachings (and believed them) I simply couldn’t figure out how to put those teachings into my daily life. So on top of everything else that was going on, I was feeling frustrated and disappointed. It was a vicious cycle.
Coming to Sedona changed everything. The work that I did with the practitioners here finally brought me into the higher vibrations that led to my life transforming — with my work, with my body, with my relationships and with my abundance. I finally received the tools of how to do all this:
• how to stop worrying
• how to stop living from fear
• how to have more happiness and joy and abundance in my life
When I started Sedona Soul Adventures in 2002, that’s what I wanted to bring to the world. A way for everyone else to have all that.
So how about you?
Would you like to stop worrying?
Would you like to stop living your life from fear?
Would you like to feel what it feels like to feel inner peace?
Would you like to have more happiness and joy and abundance in your life?
If so, come to Sedona and do a Soul Adventures retreat. We’ll get at the root of what’s causing the worry and fear and blocks and bring you into the happiness and joy and abundance that you’re seeking. Click here and one of our Angel Guides will call you. Or if you’d prefer, call us toll free at 1-877-204-3664 (US and Canada). For our friends outside the US and Canada call 01 928-204-5988 or click here and one of our Angel Guides will call you. And remember, we’re even here for you on Sunday!
Wishing you a week filled with ease and joy,

Melissa says her “life changing” Soul Adventure gave her “peace”, “connection”, and “clarity”

“I would recommend Soul Adventures to anyone who is looking for peace and connection. It is truly a life-changing experience that is so personal and so profound that I would urge anyone who is seeking personal growth to do this. I came away with so many gifts and insights that my life experience has truly been enriched and my perspective now comes from a place of peace and clarity.”

We now have 3 spots for our Machu Picchu trip (June 17-30) and we need one female roommate

Last week I told you we had one more spot left and now, sadly, two people have had to postpone the trip due to illness. And now one of our people wants a roommate (female). So if you didn’t have someone to travel with, here’s your chance. And the great news is that the person who wants a roommate is Regina Medina, one of our Angel Guides. So she will be a fun, spiritual, deep, compassionate roommate. You’ll love her!

This is so great, because it saves you $950 off the cost when you share a room. But you need to act fast! We would need to make all arrangements this coming week, including payment, getting your passport information, etc.
Wouldn’t it just be great to know that in 8 weeks you’re going to Machu Picchu? The trip is June 17-30 and I can’t tell you how excited I’m getting. Regina is going, my fiancé Richard is going — this is going to be a very special trip.
And remember you don’t have to be a Sedona Soul Adventures graduate to come on our trips.

“I have just returned from the Enchanted Peru trip and my feet have not touched the ground yet!  I knew the trip would exceed my expectations as my  Sedona Soul Adventure 8 yrs ago did as well. But what I could not imagine, in my most optimistic anticipation or wildest imagination, were all the intricacies that Debra would weave together to create such an awe and joy inspiring pilgrimage. And then to be in the presence of Jorge Luis Delgado for 2 weeks was incredible. With Jorge’s guidance, encouragement and mystical tools we were brought into an overwhelming  space of love and appreciation  for the spirit, the country, the people, each other, and ourselves. I could never have imagined the quick and  intense bonding that occurred between each one of us. Every day our hearts opened wider! We laughed together, we cried together, we grew and expanded! And I sobbed when the time came to go our separate ways. To find yourself in the presence of so many like minded people is a positively jolting experience. Many are now friends that I will cherish for the rest of my life on the planet and beyond. This experience is one I will never forget. I know that the effects of this trip are now flowing constantly into my daily life. Negative responses to life’s challenges are very hard to muster. I have a permanent smile on my face. I am at peace.
If you are considering a trip with Sedona Soul Adventures I can only say one thing. GO FOR IT!”

I’m Engaged! I’m so happy [Pix inside]

If you’ve been reading my newsletter for awhile, you know that I tell you everything that’s going on in my life — and I do mean everything! Over the years I’ve had friends ask me if I felt comfortable opening myself up to the world and I’ve always said a resounding yes. I want everyone who comes into contact with me and with Sedona Soul Adventures to feel like they really know who we are.
So it is with great happiness that I’m sharing with you that my beloved Richard proposed to me last week when we were in Aruba. I was completely and utterly surprised.
He chose the perfect setting, a beautiful restaurant which is right on the beach. At sunset. We had a beautiful dinner, complete with a bottle of champagne (which didn’t tip me off, because champagne is my favorite thing to drink).
This was taken before he popped the question. I think Aruba has some of the most beautiful white sand beaches in the world. Isn’t it beautiful?
For dessert they brought us their “Surprise Dessert” which had sparklers and I still didn’t think anything about it. Suddenly Richard plopped the box in front of me, gift wrapped, but it was unmistakably a ring box. I’m pretty sure my mouth popped open, while he started talking. I don’t remember exactly what he said, as I was busy tearing open the box!
But he said all the right stuff — I love you, I know we’re supposed to be together, I want to spend my life with you…
When he slipped the ring on my finger, I was astounded that it fit perfectly, and I remember thinking “how did he get the size so perfectly right?”.
Turns out he stealthily took the ring I wear every day and put it on his finger to get the sizing (he’s so smart).
Plus he had sent this picture of the ring to everyone in his family and all his friends, telling them he was going to propose to me when we were in Aruba. It’s a good thing I said yes!
Then he kissed me and I saw all these cameras flashing (everyone around us had been told what was happening).
Then he arranged for a dozen red roses to appear.
It was so beautiful and so perfect, a dream come true.
And it literally was a dream come true. It feels strange to say it, but I feel like I finally have experienced love. For the first time in my life. I feel like I finally know what everyone has been talking about all these years and singing about in all the songs. To experience that after so much time, is almost beyond my comprehension, and I feel so incredibly grateful and so incredibly blessed.
We are both amazed that we have found each other and we were just speaking about it again last week when we were in Aruba. During our time together, we’ve had readings with different practitioners here at Sedona Soul Adventures and we’ve found out about past lives we’ve had with each other, as well as information about the reasons why our souls have brought us together. In one reading we were told that it’s very important for us to live our lives in fun and excitement – we’re both up for that!
I see this as the ultimate culmination of what Sedona does. When I first came here in 1999, every part of my life was in turmoil. Since coming to Sedona, every part of my life has turned around. It truly is a dream that has now manifested into reality.
Sedona has changed everything for me. Could it change everything for you? I always come back to the fact of why I started Sedona Soul Adventures in the first place — I want everyone on the planet to experience the same joy and happiness and love that I have experienced, because I know first hand what’s possible.
So if you’re looking to …
Have more joy in your life
Create an amazing relationship
Become the person that attracts your soulmate
Have more fun in your life
Create more abundance
Experience deep, meaningful love
Then connect with us and let’s find out what’s possible for you.
Speak with one of our Angel Guides and they’ll have a heart to heart conversation with you to really dive deep into what’s going on and what you want in your life and then they’ll custom design a retreat that will take you from where you are to where you want to be. Click here and one of our Angel Guides will call you. Or if you’d prefer, call us toll free at 1-877-204-3664 (US and Canada). For our friends outside the US and Canada call 01 928-204-5988 or click here and one of our Angel Guides will call you.
I want everyone on the planet to experience the depth of love that’s available to all of us.
Wishing you a week filled with love, joy and excitement!

Before and After [Amazing Pics inside]

For me, the biggest sign of something really changing is the Before and After. One of the things we started doing about a year ago is asking clients to tell us at the end of their retreat exactly what happened to them. They tell us: “Before my Soul Adventure, I was…” and “After my Soul Adventure, I am…” We do this as part of their final session, which is called Intuitive Integration. We have everyone do that session, because we go over all the transformations which have happened and then we help them with how to completely integrate the transformations into their daily lives, because, of course, being able to live these transformations every single day is the most important part of the retreat.
When I decided to write about this, I thought I would send you one of the biggest examples of my transformations that have happened since I came to Sedona. If you’ve read my newsletter for awhile (or read my book The Journey To Happy), you know that when I first came to Sedona in 1999 that every part of my life was a mess – I hated my work, I was in debt, I was in an unhappy marriage and I was also at least 40 pounds overweight. The picture on the left was taken when I first started coming to Sedona and the one on the right is how I look now. Coming to Sedona and working with the amazing practitioners changed everything for me.
Even though the physical change was dramatic, the physical change was more of a reflection of the incredible changes that happened to me on the emotional, mental and spiritual levels. As I talk about in my book, every part of my life started changing and shifting. I found my life purpose and soul mission and that’s what led me to start Sedona Soul Adventures so that I could bring that same kind of before and after transformation to other people. Here are some beautiful examples:
Before: Lost – After: Confident with Who I am
Charlene said, “Before my Soul Adventure I was lost. After my Soul Adventure, I am more confident with who I am and how to be.”
Before: Angry – After: Peaceful
Michelle said, “Before my Soul Adventure I was uptight, anxious, angry, unsure of what would happen. Now I have tools to make real changes. How do I want to create my life? I have choices. I can make a positive impact on not just my own life but my son’s and my husband’s too. I’ve found peace”
Before: Worried & Controlling – After: Going with the flow
Erica said, “Before this Soul adventure I was worried and wanting to control everything and now I am totally in the flow.”
Before: Trying to change the other person – After: Appreciating who the other is
Lynn said, “Before my Soul Adventure I was in my head and I’m a heart centered intuitive person but I was really trying to fit into an exterior model of how I should be and do things in the world. I was also trying to shift others into my model of how to be. Now I know it’s safe to be my true and authentic self. I can just be who I am without apology or fear. In the relationship before Sedona Soul Adventures I was trying for lack of a better term to get the “5” (enneagram type) out of him. Now I appreciate who he really is and we can both step out of our heads and into our hearts and our bodies going forward.”
David said, “Before my Soul Adventure I was unaware of my self and my legacy from childhood and the impact it was having on my adult life and the way I see the world. Now I have so much new knowledge and the impact on our relationship is amazing. Our communication is so much better. I can explain it now. It’s not personal we just have these different styles.”
Before: Despair about the relationship – After: hopeful
Marcia said, “Before my soul adventure I was in despair and sadness and not sure there was any remedy for our situation. Now I’m hopeful and eager to figure out how to approach our life differently so we can be happy.”
Jim said “Before my soul adventure I had a very analytical view of fixing things and couldn’t fix our situation. When this came about we found a way to get here because I knew this would be the only thing that could really work. It opened my eyes to a new way to have a household. I will get to break my programming and instruction so that I can relax a bit more and steer instead of take control and I know it will get easier.”
Before: Marriage shattered by affair – After: Excited about the future
Andy said “Before my Soul Adventure I was empty and searching. I was on a path but unsure if this would move us together or push us apart. And now I feel closer to Joanne than I ever have. Everything was meant to be and we wouldn’t have come to Sedona if it had not been for the affair. I’ve released the shame and I’m moving forward with a brighter lighter being. I am now the man I want to be. I am excited about our future together.”
Joanne said, “Before our Soul Adventure I was in disbelief and numb. We were talking but I was just numb. I kept thinking ‘Once a cheater, always a cheater’. I had always wanted to do a spiritual retreat as a couple even before the affair. I was excited to come here. Now after, I’m open to not holding up ultimatums and keeping a broader mind. The affair was all from old wounds. Both of us had needs not being met. This is all a blessing.”
What would be your before and after?
Whenever I talk to anyone about doing a Sedona Soul Adventures retreat, they tell me about all the stuff that is going on in their life and then I ask them to pretend that they could wave a magic wand, everything would shift and what would that look like? What is your before and what would you like your after to be? I promise you, we can get you to your “after” faster and easier than you might think.
How do we do that? We spend time really talking to you (or both of you, if it’s a couple), really digging deep to get to the heart of the matter. Then we custom design a retreat that is perfect for YOU to bring you into that after and we send you home with tools designed to not only maintain the transformations, but for them to continue to deepen.
What would you like your after to look like? Connect with us and let’s talk about it. Click here and one of our Angel Guides will call you. Or if you’d prefer, call us toll free at 1-877-204-3664 (US and Canada). For our friends outside the US and Canada call 01 928-204-5988 or click here and one of our Angel Guides will call you.
Wishing you a week filled with more of “the afters”,

“Before my soul adventure I was feeling lost and frustrated. I was discouraged and questioning myself. I was afraid to taking a wrong step. Now I feel more at peace. I’m more optimistic. I know I’m right where I need to be.”
