A birthday, an anniversary and will you still need me?

“Will you still need me, will you still feed me, when I’m 64?”
The Beatles

Debra StandingMy birthday was this past Tuesday, January 12, and I am now 64. I can hardly believe it. When the Beatles came out with that song in 1967, I was 15 years old and being 64 felt like being soooooo incredibly old.
Here’s a picture of me that was taken just a few weeks ago as a promotional photo for my book that’s coming out soon. I look at that photo and then I think of what my grandmothers looked like when they were 64. Wow, have the times changed!
I must say, it’s the oddest thing, I feel happier, healthier and just plain old better than I have at any other time of my life. When I think back to how I was feeling before I came to Sedona, the change is pretty extraordinary.
Which brings me to the anniversary part, which is that it was 17 years ago this week that I came to Sedona for the first time. It was a birthday present to myself because I was feeling so completely awful. I hated my work as a divorce attorney, I was 40 pounds overweight, I was in an unhappy marriage, I was $50,000 in debt. Pretty much every area of my life was messed up — my work, my body, my relationship, my money. I felt completely stuck.
I came to Sedona for what I thought was going to be 3 days of just being quiet. Instead, I did one session with Ranjita (my amazing friend and incredible SSA practitioner) and got the message that I had to leave my law practice and change my life. So I did. It still amazes me that I did that, but that’s what happened. It took awhile (3 years) before Sedona Soul Adventures was born, but it all started from that one session.
So my birthdays now are always a time for me to reflect on what’s happened and it always sends me into such a rampage of appreciation and gratitude. And it makes me want to have everyone in the world experience what I have experienced.
I want everyone to go from being unhappy to happy.
I want everyone to go from feeling stuck to knowing that life is this amazing thing that is changing and moving constantly and we literally can do whatever we want (we just keep telling ourselves that we can’t).
I want everyone to go from being in debt to knowing that there is unlimited abundance surrounding us all the time.
I want everyone to go from feeling like their life has no meaning to knowing that their life has purpose and they can find that purpose and live it if they just decide to do that.
I want everyone to know that it’s possible to go from unhappy, stressed out, burned out, overweight, in debt, in a bad relationship and hating your work to happy, healthy, abundant and doing the work of your dreams. There’s just something about drawing a line in the sand and deciding that things have to be different and then doing something about it.
So if you’re like I was and all the areas in your life are messed up, come and see us and do a retreat — it’s absolutely amazing what can happen. And if you have just one or two areas that are messed up — that’s just a piece of cake!

Kris says that before she felt stuck but after her Soul Adventure she’s happy for the first time in 40 years!
“Before coming to Sedona, I had a great deal of fear and rage locked inside of me, and an uneasiness that is hard to describe with words. It was as if I were a wild animal backed into a dark corner, and being hunted by the demands of day-to-day life. I was not happy at all. I felt stuck in my life; I was going through the motions just to get through each day. There was a lack of excitement in my life, and I felt as if maybe this was all I deserved. I knew that I was unfulfilled but yet it seemed as if I could do nothing about it. I was a mess emotionally and in turn a mess physically as well!
I was truly blessed to have this soul adventure, and now that I am back at home the benefits of my experience have become obvious to all of those around me. I am truly happy for the first time in more than 40 years of living life! I had always been there to make sure everyone else was happy, and now I have learned that I can be there for others without denying myself. I love myself! I have learned the importance of taking care of me! I am now touching the lives of others in a most positive way. Friends and family both, have expressed a deep interest in my experiences. I feel loved!”
