“Don’t you DARE settle for fine” – quote from “Ted Lasso”

Have you been watching “Ted Lasso”? It’s been one of the most-watched shows of the past year and was just nominated for a record 20 Emmy awards. It is so funny, so sweet and so uplifting (although it does also have lots of F-bombs, so be ready for that).

When I first heard about it, I was totally uninterested – an American football coach is hired to coach a premier soccer league in England. Why would I be interested in that? But it makes me feel so good to watch it, Richard and I have watched the entire first season twice!

The second season started last week and there was a scene that struck me so deeply that I wanted to pass it along to you. 

One of the characters watches a woman start to settle for less than what she deserves and he challenges her, “Don’t you DARE settle for fine.”

And, “You should feel like you’ve been struck by lightning.”

And isn’t that what living life is all about? 

We have a choice in everything we do and in every area of our lives. We can either settle and just go through life without joy, bliss and excitement or we can get excited about things in our lives and have times when we’re so excited we feel like we’ve been struck by lightning! 

What does your life look like? Are there any areas in your life where you’re settling? Do you feel excited in all the areas of your life? It’s such an important question.

Look at the major areas of your life:

Work – Are you doing work you love? Are you living your life purpose? Do you even know what your life purpose is? Do you wake up in the morning raring to go?

Love Relationship – Does your partner make you feel like you’ve been struck by lightning? Have you ever felt that way about them? Even if the fire has gone out, it’s possible to get that back.

Friends & Family Relationships – Do you have people in your life who keep you on your toes and keep you interested and interesting? Are your relationships with your friends and family harmonious? Do they add to your life energy? Or do they deplete your energy?

Health – Do you feel good in your body? Do you love your body? Or do you constantly wish your body was different? 

Money and Abundance – Do you feel abundant? Or do you constantly worry about money and not having enough?

With all the parts of our lives, we’re either living in connection or not. And all the parts of our lives add up to the sum total of our existence. 

So if the total sum of your existence isn’t operating most of the time in happiness, joy, peace, abundance, and excitement, you need to do something about it.

First of all, I highly recommend watching “Ted Lasso” (even with the F-bombs) or something else that makes you feel happy and uplifted. 

But typically watching a TV show doesn’t get underneath the real issues that are holding you back in life or causing trouble in your relationships. That’s where we come in. If you want to come back into the joy and happiness that I believe are your birthright, do a Soul Adventure. We’ll find what’s holding you back or causing the trouble, we’ll release it and bring you back into connection.

Wouldn’t you love to be full of JOY, purpose, and excitement for the next phase of your beautiful life? You can. Call us.

Happy Half-Way Through The Year! How Are Your Resolutions Coming Along?

Last week my husband, Richard, took me out for a beautiful dinner to celebrate my Half-Birthday! My birthday is in January, so it got me thinking about how I’m doing on my Resolutions for the New Year that I made back then.

I have to admit that the biggest resolution I made has not come through at all. I got so busy and unfocused with other things that the big thing I had set for myself hasn’t been happening.

It’s the age-old problem with resolutions, isn’t it? If we don’t really incorporate them into our lives, they don’t happen.

So I don’t want you to get down on yourself, instead let’s revisit those resolutions or even better, do what I’m doing and make a decision to revamp what you want to accomplish for the rest of the year.

I’m including here my video on “How To Have A Kick-Ass New Year!” It’s very do-able and practical, and it might just be that extra oomph you need to really have something magical happen by the end of the year. Wouldn’t that be fantastic?

For me, I’ve reset my big goal and I’ll keep you posted on how that turns out! I already know that one of the things I need to do to help myself is to do a session with one of my Practitioners. It will be a session on Core Beliefs.

I can tell that I have some resistance to this really big goal and one of the ways I can tell that is that I’ve only taken a very small amount of action on this over the past 6 months. I think I must have some beliefs buried deep in there somewhere that I can’t do this, or I don’t deserve it or some other nonsense. I’m not sure what it is, but by doing this session we’ll uncover it, move it out and replace it with some empowering beliefs along the line of “I can do this!” or “I deserve this!”

I always love that exhilarated feeling.

If you have a big goal that’s not happening or you’re not feeling those feelings of exhilaration, joy and excitement in your life and relationship, maybe you need to do some sessions too.

This is what we do here at Sedona Soul Adventures – we uncover the blocks, wounds and negative beliefs that are holding you back from having the life or relationship you’re craving. It’s so incredible what happens when those blocks are gone. Then you’re operating on all the levels – physical, mental, emotional, spiritual – and life is amazing.

As promised, here’s the video. Happy Half-Year!

Christel says her Soul Adventure “healed old woundings in a way I didn’t realize was possible.” And she now has “clarity, direction, increase self love and self respect.”

That’s the key of what we do. Healing the old woundings and helping people find clarity, direction and self love. I love it so much that Christel is giddy and feeling “profound peace mixed with genuine enthusiasm for this next stage of my life.” Isn’t that fabulous? I’m so happy for you, Christel!

And you can have that too! Give us a call right now (we’re even open on Sundays because we’re here for you). We’ll connect with you (or both of you (separately) for a Couples Retreat) in deep conversation, really getting under what’s blocking you, what’s holding you back, or what’s causing the problem. And then we’ll custom design a retreat that’s perfect for exactly what you need to bring you into the joy, love and excitement that life is supposed to be about. Click below and we’ll call you.

Announcing our 10-week “Opening To Your Intuition” Masterclass, starting August 14

Our first Opening to Your Intuition class was such a resounding success! Plus we had so many people who couldn’t do it in March who asked us to do it again, so that’s exactly what we’re doing!

I’m so excited to announce another “Opening To Your Intuition,” a 10-week personal and professional development training program created and taught by one of our fabulous Practitioners, Komala Rohde.

Over the millennia, Intuition has been defined as an inner sensing, as a gut feeling or instinctive knowing. In recent years, science has begun to map the human Intuition system. We will begin with reviewing some modern insights about Intuition.

All of us have the ability to connect with the Highest part of ourselves and tune into our intuitive abilities. It just takes a willingness, a belief that it’s possible and trust that the information you’re getting is coming from your Highest Self. It’s simple (but not necessarily easy), so I hope you’ll join us.

Komala is such an amazing person. She is originally from Germany and first trained as a naturopathic doctor. She has been practicing meditation for over 40 years. For the past 10 years, she has been involved with researching and practicing principles of neuroscience in connection with mindfulness, consciousness and creating a resilient brain. She has been a Master Practitioner with Sedona Soul Adventures since 2004 and is a Certified Professional Coach and Neuro-Transformational Coach, so the depth of knowledge and wisdom she brings to this is really phenomenal. She is well known in the United States and also internationally.

Trisha says before her Soul Adventure, “I was an emotional wreck”; after her “unforgettable adventure of a lifetime…I am recharged, rejuvenated and on my path”

This is such a perfect example of the before and after that we are so great at doing. When Trisha came to us, here’s what was going on:

  • She was an emotional wreck
  • She felt her light was burning out
  • She was sick and tired of doing the same thing over and over again, especially in her relationships
  • Her old patterns were running her
  • She felt like she was just surviving her life and definitely not thriving

She experienced the amazing thing we do – we connect with you deeply before you start your retreat (whether it’s here in Sedona or At Home) and we really get a feel for what’s going on with you, or what’s going on in your relationship and what it is going to take to blast through the blocks and wounds and gunk that are holding you back and making you live out the same patterns over and over again. As she said, we did a perfect job of custom designing her retreat for exactly what she needed.

Now she’s feeling:

  • That her life has been altered
  • She’s blasted through her patterns
  • Recharged
  • Rejuvenated
  • On her path

As she says, she went from just “surviving” to really “living my life now.”

Could you use some recharging?
Could your relationship use some rejuvenation?
Would you like to find your path and start living it?

If so, you’ve come to the perfect place. Right here, right now. If you’re reading this, I’m guessing you’d love to go from just surviving to really living.

Did you know we were named Best in Sedona for 2020 and 2021 for Retreats?

Did you know that we were named Best Marriage Retreats in the US five years in a row?

It’s because we’re the best.

We’ve hit over 500 verified 5-star reviews on Trustpilot

Just in the past few weeks, we hit over 500 reviews on Trustpilot. What’s even better, is that out of 516 reviews, over 500 are 5 stars!

When we started Sedona Soul Adventures over 19 years ago(!), we asked people for reviews and I have thousands of these beautiful testimonials that people wrote over the years. Then starting a few years ago, many people on the internet started figuring out that many businesses were writing phony testimonials and putting them on their websites. Pretty low, right?

Thus was born services like Trustpilot, who do 3rd party reviews. Meaning, they verify that the people writing these testimonials are actually real customers who really did a Soul Adventure. We’ve been using Trustpilot since June 2016 and now we have over 500 fabulous reviews!

What I love the most is that each and every one of these reviews represents the beautiful story of what happened with this particular person (or couple) when they came to us to do a Soul Adventure. To read about people saying:

“My life was transformed”

“Our marriage was saved”

“I have healed old woundings in a way I didn’t realize was possible.”

“Best money I ever spent”

“I’m a better person”

“This was just what my wife and I needed”

“Sedona Soul Adventures helped me get my Life back on track!”

“Sedona Soul Adventures was the best thing I ever did for myself”

“This is the most life changing experience I’ve ever had!”

It’s just so incredible. We feel so honored and grateful to be such a huge part of so many people’s lives. We are grateful each and every day.

Have you been thinking about doing a Soul Adventure? If so, what’s holding you back? Have you wondered if it will really work for you? That’s a very understandable question to have.

I would invite you to read these reviews from real people who came here and had their lives (and relationships) transformed. Don’t take it from me – take it from these over 500 souls!

Thank You For Helping the People of Peru

I’m writing this on Wednesday, the last day of our Peru trip. It’s been such a fantastic trip, the group was so incredibly wonderful (and as usual, fell in love with each other within 48 hours), the weather was absolutely perfect, the ceremonies were moving and it was just a fantastic time.

We ended the last full day of the trip on a beautiful note. Many of you will remember that back in April, we did a very special teleconference with Jorge Luis Delgado, our amazing shaman and guide, about special new teachings about Machu Picchu. We asked for a small donation (just $13) for a project that Jorge has started for the people of Peru.

As you may know, Peru has been hit very hard by the economic effects of COVID, especially people who live in the Highlands. Jorge’s project is to build greenhouses for the planting and nurturing of fruit trees, which will then be given to different communities in Peru. This helps with their agriculture and will feed many people.

So many of you joined us on the teleconference and then many of you donated even more than the suggested $13. In the 2 weeks before the teleconference, we raised over $2,000, which I thought was really wonderful with all these small donations. I was so full of gratitude that I decided that Sedona Soul Adventures would double what was donated.

Then the very generous souls on this trip decided to donate and yesterday I gave Jorge our total donation of $4,600! That’s going to go a long way toward helping the people of Peru.

debra-people-of-peru

Jorge has started two other projects now. One is to collect funds for Christmas presents for the children of the Highlands, which I love. The other is a weaving project – gathering funds to purchase materials so that people who do weaving can make shawls, capes, socks, etc. and then sell them. 

As Jorge was explaining to us yesterday, it is twice blessed. It gives people work to do and then these beautiful items can be sold.

Thank you so much to all of you who donated and if you would like to donate (or make another donation), that would be so good of you. We have so much here in the US and Canada, it’s hard to imagine how difficult life is for these people. You can donate here:

100% of these funds will be sent directly to Jorge in Peru.

Thank you for your generous heart.

Our next Peru trip will be June 17-30, 2022. Would you like to get on the waitlist so we will send you all the information as soon as it’s ready? Click here.

Paul says his Soul Adventure was “one of the greatest experiences of his life” and helped him “discover my life purpose, self confidence, self love…I am transformed for the rest of my life”

I mean, wow! Paul was just in Sedona for his Soul Adventure and because I was in Peru, I didn’t get to meet him, but I’m going to call him as soon as I get home. What an incredible transformation he had. 

I love it so much that Sedona Soul Adventures is set up in such a way that I can be gone for two weeks in Peru and the transformations just continue to happen. Shout out to everyone in the office and all my amazing Practitioners who make this happen!

Isn’t it so incredible what can happen in just a few short days? Look what happened to Paul – through his Soul Adventure he…

  • found his life purpose
  • stepped into the light of truth 
  • gained self confidence
  • gained understanding
  • gained self worth
  • gained self love
  • he feels transformed for the rest of his life
  • has a clear path of certainty
  • has the calling and the full capacity to help and serve others

I mean wow! That’s a lot to accomplish in a few short days, but that’s exactly what happens when you do a Soul Adventure. I’m so happy for Paul and so excited knowing that he’s right when he says this transformation will last a lifetime.

It’s been so gratifying to be here in Peru where so many of the people on this trip had their lives or relationships transformed by a Soul Adventure. And for many of them, their Soul Adventure was many years ago – the effects just keep on happening.

So what about you? Are you looking for your life purpose? Are you looking for self love? Do you want to feel certainty? Are you wanting to transform your life? If so, please call us at (928) 204-5988 or click here and one of our Angel Guides will call you.

Such a Sacred Time in Peru

What a fabulous time we are having on our Peru trip. The weather has been absolutely spectacular. We are below the equator, so it’s technically winter here, but you’d never know it from all the flowers everywhere and the warm temperatures (into the 70’s).

We have a wonderful group, people from all over the world (but mainly from the US), all ages, shapes, sizes and colors. And as usual, we were all in love with each other within 48 hours. That’s one of the things I love so much about our trips.

Machu Picchu has been even more spectacular this year than usual. We’ve had 3 days of just fabulous weather. And because so many people around the world aren’t traveling, there is virtually no one here! So spectacular!

We always go to Machu Picchu on the Solstice and here we are doing ceremony at first light. It’s always otherworldly. Can you see the orb in this photo? Wow! At dinner that night, we had a wonderful discussion about just exactly what orbs are.

And after our sunrise ceremony, a few of us had an adorable encounter for about a ½ hour with this family of llamas. 

They wanted to be with us and we wanted to be with them, it was so cool. 

We’re in the process of putting together our trip for next year. It will be June 17-30, 2022 and we’ll be in Machu Picchu for the Solstice. Click here to get on our waitlist and we’ll give you first notice when we have all the details. 

Another thing that’s been so gratifying for me on this trip is that many of the people on the trip are Sedona Soul Adventures “grads” and they’ve been talking about how their Soul Adventure completely changed their lives.

For many of them, the Soul Adventure was many years ago, so I just love to hear about that and how even after all these years, it’s still such a powerful force in their lives. 

This couple told me their Soul Adventure completely transformed their relationship and I love that so much. They even sent their daughter on a Soul Adventure!

So if you’d like to have your life or your relationship transformed, connect with us and speak with one of our Angel Guides. They’ll connect with you in deep conversation and begin the process of taking you from where you are to where you want to be, by custom designing a retreat for exactly what you need and want.

Daddy Issues/How Forgiving our Fathers Leads to Peace and Happiness

After being a Family Law attorney for 20 years and now doing my work with Sedona Soul Adventures for almost 20 years, I am still continually amazed at how almost everyone I come into contact with still has wounds from the past – and in most situations, it’s from things that happened with their parents.

I was thinking about it this week (since it’s Father’s Day), but especially because one of our couples who were here doing a retreat had a huge breakthrough and it all came down to their relationships with their fathers.

In my own life, I spent many years grappling with my relationship with my own father. My dad was a hardworking man and I know in my head that he loved us, but I never felt that in my heart. He grew up in a large German Catholic family (his parents had 20 children – he was number 19!) and in our stoic household, no one ever said “I love you” and I have no memory of being hugged or held.

Worse, when I was 12 years old, my father started an affair with another woman which lasted until my mother’s death 11 years later. He became an alcoholic, had severe financial problems and almost lost his business and our home. My teenage years were ones of turmoil and trauma.

I couldn’t wait to get out of all that craziness and I got married when I was 19. Of course, the marriage failed because I got married for all the wrong reasons. I got married to get away from my family situation, not because I was in love and capable of having a stable, loving relationship. In fact, having a stable and loving relationship was something that I was completely incapable of having.

I started what would become 15 years of therapy when my first marriage ended and in therapy, I made the mental correlation between my upbringing and my failed marriage. But that never healed the ache in my heart. It wasn’t until I was able (through sessions) to go into compassion for my dad and to finally forgive him that the real healing occurred – and that’s what happened with the couple this past week.

Like me, this couple had done many years of therapy.

Like me, they each mentally understood the correlation between their upbringing and problems in their marriage (but having that understanding wasn’t enough to cause anything to be better).

Like me, they thought they had “dealt with” their daddy issues completely.

In their retreat, their initial session as a couple brought some of these issues to the forefront. They had some resistance to even looking at this because they thought they had “dealt with it” already. But it was obviously still there.

In Jane’s Emotional Clearing session (they’ve asked that we change their names for privacy) that she did on her own, she cleared out the energy that her father had wanted a boy and that she was always competing for his love with her younger brother. Her energy had become hyper-masculine and it was showing up not only in her relationship with her husband, but in her work and in her relationships with her friends.

For her husband Ted, in his initial clearing session that he did individually, he cleared out the energy that he was unloveable, that his father didn’t love him, that he was never good enough. He said he felt like he cleared tons of pain away that was just lifted up and out.

And then the big breakthrough happened. In their breath sessions (which they each did separately), it was absolutely amazing that both their fathers (both of whom are deceased) came into their sessions. They each said they felt the presence of their dads, but it was different for each one of them.

For Jane, she literally saw her father. He came to her and spoke to her. He told her that he truly loved her, he showed her images of times when she was growing up that he felt especially close to her. She said she truly felt his love. He told her he was proud of her.

For Ted, it was even more profound. He felt his father’s presence, although he didn’t actually “see” him. He said he felt like his father had somehow connected with him on a cellular level and he felt “almost overwhelmed” by all the love he felt from his father. He said he cried and cried, but they were really tears of joy and of deeply letting go.

They both felt the healing in an instant. Knowing and feeling that they were truly loved by their fathers, healed everything. In an instant, they both felt that the issues between them had been healed.

In their next couples session, they saw how their issues had sprung from their feelings of not being lovable. Now that this was healed, they were able to revel in their newfound love for each other.

Like Jane and Ted, I also had a huge breakthrough with my father during a breath session. In my 15 years of therapy, I had been able to analyze his problems and my problems and I had come to a place of understanding him. But in this breath session, his energy came into my presence and I was able to really see him for the first time.

I saw that he truly loved both my mother and Mary. He was in love with 2 different women and had absolutely no idea how to deal with it. So he dealt with it by self medicating with alcohol. He was in so much pain and so much confusion. I truly felt how much he loved all of us (my mother, my brothers and my sister), but he was in so much pain he could barely function. My heart was full of compassion for him.

Luckily, this happened while he was still alive. I was able to finally have the close relationship I wanted to have with him my entire life. My dad passed away in 2004 and I was with him during the final 2 weeks of his life. One morning in the hospital, a few days before he passed, I was sitting next to him while he was sleeping. He woke up and said to me, “I couldn’t love you anymore than I do.” I’m weeping as I write those words, but they are tears of deeply feeling the love I have for him.

Forgiving my father and coming into love and compassion for him was part of a huge transformation in my life.

Jane and Ted felt like this experience saved their marriage.

For so many others who come to us, healing these wounds moves them into a peace and happiness they’ve never known before.

Almost all of us are grappling with some form of the question of, “Do I truly deserve to be loved?” It shows up in a lot of different ways:

  • Sometimes our love relationships don’t work.
  • Sometimes it shows up in dissatisfaction in our work.
  • Sometimes we do too much for everyone else and don’t take care of ourselves.
  • Sometimes it feels like we’re never good enough or we’ll never be happy.

How is it showing up for you?

Do you have any doubt that you are completely 100% lovable and deserving to be loved?

If you’re not at 100%, it’s affecting your life in some way. And if it’s affecting your life in some way, you need to do something about it. Contact us. Connect with one of our Angel Guides and let them design a retreat that can bring you into 100%.

Vicki says “negative feelings I had bottled up for almost half a century” are healed and “it was worth every penny”

“All the practitioners were very professional. I originally thought the price was very high, but after I completed the retreat, I felt that it was worth every penny. Some of the negative feelings I had bottled up for almost half a century had been driven me to the wall. After I went through the healing from all the healers, I was able to know the causes of my problems, they have been healed and I learned skills of how to deal with them. Now two of my girlfriends have also done retreats. Thank you!”

Wishing you a week filled with loving and appreciating your dad!

The #1 Way to Have Peace in Your Life

For most people, having peace in their lives seems like an impossible dream. Most people are stressed out and burned out, especially after this crazy year. Ironically, even though they’re doing too much, they don’t feel like they’re accomplishing anything.

Most people are worried about something that gnaws at them all the time. What is that for you? Do you worry about your job, your kids, your health, your spouse, your relationship, your money situation? Do you worry about the pandemic? Do you worry about other people liking you or loving you? Do you worry about your future? Do you worry about how your life is going to end up?

What’s your general state of mind during a typical day? Are you happy and excited? Or are you upset and frustrated? How do you react to things when something happens? Do you take it in stride or go into worry and upset?

Most people live in a general state of worry, upset or (even worse) hopelessness. It’s not hard to understand why that happens with everything that is going on in the world and in our day to day lives.

But the interesting thing is, it’s not all that stuff on the outside that is causing your sense of peace or lack of it. It’s how you’re reacting to all the stuff that’s happening…

And how you’re reacting to it is based on how you’re thinking and feeling about it…

And the way you’re thinking and feeling about it is probably rooted in something that happened to you a long time ago, in your formative years.

We had a woman who came for a Soul Adventure retreat awhile ago who first contacted us saying that she wanted to come to heal her pain around her marriage ending. Her husband had left her and she was (of course) brokenhearted.

When she spoke with her Angel Guide, he knew this had deep roots. He designed her Soul Adventure in such a way to bring those out. During her time here, she discovered things around her relationship with her mother that had left her feeling unloved and unworthy of love. She saw how she had (unconsciously) created an unhappy relationship to bring this up for healing.

Once she had that awareness, everything shifted. She did forgiveness work around her relationship with her mother and she said she felt the energy of that situation completely heal. The next sessions brought her into a sense of loving herself on all the levels — physically (loving her body), mentally, emotionally and spiritually.

At the end of her retreat she said, “I had no idea all of this was impacting every area of my life in all of these ways. I feel like a huge weight has come off my shoulders. I feel light and free for the first time in my life”.

Last year we had a couple who first contacted us saying that there were no problems in their relationship, they simply wanted to become closer on a spiritual level. But when their Angel Guide spoke with each of them separately, she felt some undercurrents of resentment and fear.

With a Couples Retreat, we always design the retreat to include sessions for the couple together, but also individual sessions for each person to heal issues that the individual might be bringing to the relationship and that’s how their retreat was designed.

During the first session, the cracks in their relationship came out and in their individual sessions, they both got real eye openers. The wife’s father left her mother when she was a young child and the messages she got was “men leave” and “I must have done something wrong that daddy left.” Her father had been very emotionally abusive and she realized that she sometimes felt “bullied” by her husband. Not in a harsh and abusive way, but in subtle ways that were controlling.

She was amazed when she discovered another link: her husband is very attractive and her father was very attractive. Even though they have been married for over 20 years and he has always been faithful, she realized that she had always been afraid of losing him and put up with the subtle bullying because she was afraid that he would leave her like her father had.

In her subsequent sessions, this place of fear (that had been with her since childhood) was healed. She was completely blown away.

In his sessions, the husband disclosed for the first time that he had been bullied as a child. He saw how this was affecting not only his relationship, but every area of his life. In his individual sessions, the shame from this was healed and he said he felt all the anger just flowing out of his body and his heart.

Needless to say, they were both shocked to discover how this “bullying” issue (which they had never defined as an issue) had been impacting their relationship. And you can imagine how wonderful their final couples sessions were…

Both of them came together healed and more in love than ever. Her fear was gone, his shame and anger were gone, and they had a new and deep appreciation for each other that hadn’t been there for a long time. Plus, they received tools that they took home to help them continue to communicate and connect more deeply.

As both of these stories illustrate, if you want to have peace in your life, you have to get at the things that are causing you to not have peace. You might know what those issues are, you might not. Most often, people who come to us to do a retreat discover that the thing that is causing their pain, their anxiety and all their problems is actually something different from what they thought it was.

So here is my bold statement – The #1 way that I know to have peace in your life or your relationship is to do a Sedona Soul Adventures retreat. We will find the blocks and move them out. We’ll move you back into a sense of connection and peace that you didn’t think was possible.

Contact us to speak to an Angel Guide about doing a retreat. It’s amazing how many people say that after one phone call with their Angel Guide they already feel better. Your Angel Guide will speak with you (or both of you if it’s a couples retreat) on a deep level. Then they’ll custom design a retreat that will bring you into the life or relationship you’re craving.

There’s no cost or obligation and you can do the retreat here in Sedona or At Home. We are so happy that our At Home retreats are just as powerful as those in Sedona.

Rose says “before my Soul Adventure I was a mess” after my Soul Adventure, I feel “peace…and I’m so happy I did it”

You are so welcome, Rose! I’m so happy you went from being a mess to finding peace! That’s what this is all about!!

If you’d like to finally find some peace, please call us. Speak with an Angel Guide and they’ll start the process of figuring out the blocks that are holding you back from the peace you crave in your life and your relationship. There’s no cost or obligation to speak with them and it might be the first step towards turning everything around! And remember, you can do your retreat either in Sedona or from the comfort of your own home.

Can you believe it? We just announced the Egypt trip last week and only 5 spots are left!
I’m so excited about the energy for this trip!

The trip is just so extraordinary. It’s such a beautiful combination of all the places you absolutely have to go to, combined with the spiritual aspects of connecting with Egypt’s powerful energy.

GEM-Museum

I am so incredibly excited that the new Grand Egyptian Museum (GEM) is finally opening in October, just in time for our trip!

We’ve been watching it being built over the past 10 years and it is absolutely massive! It will house all the treasures of King Tut, the huge Solar Boat, and hundreds and hundreds of statues, sarcophogi (decorated caskets), obelisks, stelas, sculpture, jewelry and other treasures that the public has never seen before.

We go to all the must-see places:

Camel.pyramid
  • The Great Pyramid (where we’ll have 2 hours of private time for ceremony just for our group)
  • The Sphinx
  • Karnak
  • Luxor
  • Abu Simbel

But we’ll also be going to places the average tourist doesn’t always see:

  • Isis Temple at Philae
  • Temple of Abydos
  • Hathor Temple at Dendera
  • Horus Temple at Edfu
  • The Osirion

And this year we have special tickets to see:

King Tut Mask
  • The Tomb of King Tut in the Valley of the Kings
  • The Tomb of Seti I in the Valley of the Kings
  • The Tomb of Queen Nefertari in the Valley of the Queens!

To see the actual tomb and the mummy of King Tutankamun is so amazing. We will also see the treasures of his tomb in the new Grand Egyptian Museum in Cairo. The Tomb of King Seti I is absolutely spectacular and Queen Nefertari’s tomb (she was the favorite wife of Ramses II) has been called “The Sistine Chapel of Egypt.” Very few people are allowed to see these tombs, so this is a very special part of our trip this year.

Plus, we’ll be doing ceremonies and meditations, and discussing the alternative theories of who built the Pyramids, who built the Sphinx (and when) and why are there carvings of a helicopter, a tank and a submarine in the walls of the Temple of Abydos?

Ceremony-Pyramid-w_-Mike-1024x768

Having two hours of private time just for our group inside the Great Pyramid for meditation and ceremonies is beyond belief!

Plus, we just have fun. Here we are dressing up like Egyptians for Galabaya Night.

I love this photo, it so demonstrates what happens on this trip – having breakfast at the fabulous 5 star Mena House right next to the Pyramids, three people who didn’t know each other before this trip connecting and having an amazing time, about to start another incredible day of exploration, wonder and awe.

And to go on a journey like this with other like-minded travelers – it’s just the icing on the cake. Don’t be concerned if you don’t have a companion to travel with – our groups are typically in love with each other within 48 hours, making friends that last a lifetime.

On Wednesday, we sent out the Early Bird announcement to the people who signed up for our waitlist for the Egypt trip…and it’s selling out fast!

Here’s your chance to go on this trip of a lifetime, but you must act fast!

It seems like almost every year I say this is our most incredible trip ever, because we’re always striving to make it more and more wonderful.

But I have to tell you…

THIS ONE IS EVEN MORE SPECTACULAR THAN EVER!

And that’s because at long last, after years and years of waiting, the new Egyptian Grand Museum is finally scheduled to open in October!

I can’t tell you how excited I am to finally see this place.

We’ve been watching its construction for many years and it’s HUGE!

We are also on a new cruise ship (one I’ve never even seen) and I am told by my Egyptian travel partners that it is absolutely incredible!

The old Museum was built in 1905 and there have been so many incredible finds since then (including King Tut!), that it’s never been able to hold all the treasures. I’m going to be seeing things I’ve never seen before and I can’t wait! We’re going to spend an entire day there.

Watch the video and you can see for yourself:

We go to all the must see places:

  • The Great Pyramid (including 2 hours of private time just for our group for ceremony)
  • The Sphinx (where we have special admission to do ceremony between the paws of the Sphinx — this is closed to the general public)
  • Temple Complex of Karnak
  • Luxor Temple (which we see lit up at night — it’s other worldly!)
  • Abu Simbel (the largest statues in the world)
  • The new Grand Cairo Museum (to see the complete King Tut exhibit and all the other treasures)

And we go to places that the average tourist doesn’t go to, with special admissions provided for our group.

  • Tomb of King Tut
  • Tomb of Queen Nefertari
  • Tomb of Ramses VI
  • Tomb of Seti I
  • Isis Temple at Philae
  • Hathor Temple at Dendera
  • Horus Temple at Edfu
  • Kom Ombo (dedicated to the crocodile god Sobek and Horus)
  • The Temple of Abydos
  • The Osirion (to see the Flower of Life)

One of the first things you might be thinking is – “Is Egypt safe?” I was just there in February and (as usual) it was wonderful, incredible, and safe.

Everyone in the group commented that they felt completely safe.

Can you believe it? This will be my 22nd trip to Egypt! The first time I went was in 1983 and I’ve been taking groups there every year since 2004. I’ve been working with my Egyptian travel partners since 1995. The Egyptian people are some of the warmest, friendliest people you will ever meet, and they love Americans.

Over the years, people have asked me if it’s necessary to have done a Soul Adventures retreat to go on our trip? It’s not a requirement (but it’s very wonderful).

Julia says her Soul Adventures retreat was “transformational” and “felt like coming home to myself”

Julia really gets to the heart of what happens in a Soul Adventure in this brief review. It’s:

  • Healing
  • Transformational
  • The Practitioners are amazing
  • She’s been given the tools she needs to continue her healing journey
  • The transformations have allowed her to come home to herself

I love this so much because that’s exactly what happens here. We’re cleaning away the gunk, the trauma, the blocks and the emotional anxiety that is holding you back from living your best life or having the relationship of your dreams. It’s all possible when you clear that all out and come back into connection. Coming back home to yourself, to the real you.

Do a Sedona Soul Adventures retreat. Contact us, connect with an Angel Guide. They’ll custom design the perfect retreat to take you from where you are to where you want to be.

How Self Love Affects Every Part of Your Life [and How to Get It]

I’ve been working with people for over 40 years, first as a family law attorney and now with Sedona Soul Adventures, and one of the things I find that is most important if you want to have a truly happy life, is to truly develop self love. As I talk about in the video, if you don’t love yourself, that’s going to show up in every area of your life.

One of my favorite parts of this video is the quote from the Buddha:

“You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire Universe, deserve your love and affection.”

If you don’t totally believe that, please watch the video.

I hope it helps.

Tracy says, “Before my Soul Adventure I was depressed, lost and had no self love or self confidence. After my Soul Adventure, I feel WORTHY, I am very LOVED, I now have self confidence and self love.”tracy j ssa testimonial

If you want to really kick your self love up a notch, do a Sedona Soul Adventures retreat. We’ll figure out what’s causing the lack of self love and what’s holding you back from having the life (or the relationship) of your dreams. 

We’ll bring you into the space of really loving yourself and give you the tools to get you into those higher, faster (happier) vibrations and stay there all the time.

Too good to be true? Actually, it does even more than that!

Contact us, connect with an Angel Guide and they’ll explain more about how we can do that for you.

One of the biggest challenges that so many people who come to us face, is lack of self-love. And I have to say it’s a challenge that I’ve really had to work with in my own life. It’s just so pervasive.
 
If this is something you’ve been feeling, here are some possible reasons why and how it shows up…
 
For most of us, something happened in our childhood. Someone we cared about, usually a parent, says something that we take on — you’re stupid, there’s something wrong with you, you’ll never amount to anything.
 
You maybe have a Faulty core belief – deep inside, you believe you’re not okay, or that you’re not good enough, that usually leads to Negative self talk – when something happens do you find yourself saying things “I’m so stupid,” or “what’s wrong with me?”
 
Are any of these true for you?
 
You see, when we look a little deeper, we uncover what’s really going on and then when you go deeper still, you see the compound affects showing up in many areas of your life.
If you think there’s something wrong with you, if you think you’re not good enough, or if you think you’re not enough, then it’s going to affect all the areas of your life, what I call the Fab Four:  

  1. Relationships
  2. Work
  3. Money
  4. Health

What are the ways you can see how this problem is affecting these areas of your life?

  • Relationships – If you think you’re not enough, you’re going to attract relationships where people don’t really love you or take care of your needs.
  • Work – If you think you’re not enough, you’re never going to be able to truly succeed.
  • Money – It’s hard, probably impossible, to bring in a lot of abundance if you think you’re not enough.
  • Health – And what I find is that people who think they’re not enough, typically don’t take very good care of themselves, and it seems to be at the root of many health issues.

If you don’t love yourself, that’s going to sabotage every area of your life.

We had a woman here a few months ago who had been placed for adoption when she was born – her mother was a drug user and she was taken away at birth. She had this very deep sense of, “what’s wrong with me that even my own mother didn’t want me?” And of course that wasn’t true, her mother knew she couldn’t care for her properly.

But then she was adopted by two parents who were constantly upset with her that she wasn’t doing well enough in school, they criticized her constantly, all she ever heard was that she wasn’t good enough. She got married very young to get out of the house, married a man who mistreated her (because if you don’t love yourself, you can’t bring in someone who’s truly going to love you) and got divorced at a young age when the abuse got too bad. By the time she came to us, all the areas of her life were messed up — she was in another bad relationship, she hated her work, she hated her body.

So what can YOU do to begin to start loving yourself just a little bit?

Take yourself off the hook – look around, are you really that much worse than anyone else?

Stop comparing yourself to everyone else, that’s a recipe for disaster.

Start noticing your self talk and the way you talk to yourself. Think about it. You probably speak more kindly to your dog or your cat than you do to yourself.

As the Buddha said, “You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire Universe, deserve your love and affection.”

Are you going to argue with Buddha?

These are great places to start, and as you work through these, you’ll begin to uncover other ways to help you find your way and overcome the lack of self-love.
