Faith, 2 Miracles and the eclipse

We traveled to St. Joseph, Missouri this week to see the solar eclipse and had 2 miracles happen. I know this eclipse has ushered in a new age, and I want to talk to you about that but first I want to tell you about the miracles.
We chose St. Joseph for 4 reasons:

  1. It’s right in the center of the part of the US  where the eclipse was happening.
  2. A large group of astronomers picked it as the place they were going to be, at Rosecrans Air Field.
  3. It had one of the best chances for clear weather in the country.
  4. It was one of the easiest places for us to get to, with one direct flight, plus I’m very familiar with that area, having lived in Omaha for many years and visiting my brother who lived in Kansas City.

Before we left, my fiancé Richard kept checking the weather and suddenly one week before it said heavy rain on the day of the eclipse. He said, “baby, we’ve got to do something about this”, so we spent a bunch of time meditating on clear skies and running the energy of how exciting it would be to view the eclipse through a sunny, clear sky.
On Saturday and Sunday we kept hearing stories of the hordes that had descended on Oregon and we decided to go very early in the morning. We flew into Kansas City, had a good night’s sleep, woke up at 5 and were on the road at 6. We got on Interstate 29 for the hour long drive to St. Joseph and happily discovered that the highway was not choked with cars. We got to the exit and there was a big sign that said “Sold Out – Ticket Holders Only”. We looked at each other and said “What the What?” Even after all our reading and planning, we had never seen anything about needing tickets!
Richard said “Let’s start praying” and I started saying (in my mind) the mantra my Catholic mother had taught me as a little child, “Little Flower, show thy power” [This is St. Therese, also called the Little Flower of Jesus and my mother would constantly invoke her for small things like a dryer that had stopped running (and it would start running again, I swear!) and large things like my oldest brother getting into the college of his choice (which also worked!].
It was early, around 7 am and cars were coming, but we were one of the first to arrive. We got to the first checkpoint, and the man asked us to stop and wait for a truck that was pulling out. He told us they were sold out, and that meant 12,000 people. As we pulled away, I said to Richard, “when they ask for the ticket, tell them we’ve come all the way from Arizona and lay it on thick”. I was ready to beg.
We got to the next checkpoint and the man said, “do you have your ticket?” Richard said, “we had no idea we had to have tickets…” and the man immediately handed Richard a piece of paper that he had in his hand and said, “this is the last free one I have, you can have it – put it in on your dash”. Richard said, “God bless you!”.
As we drove away, we were high-fiving and laughing and I said “Oh My God, I can hardly believe that!” We were both so excited and happy. Can you imagine having come all this way, having made all these plans and be turned away because we hadn’t paid for a $41 ticket? Richard said, “I KNEW it was going to be all right!”
We found a great spot – on one side was a family with lots of kids and a baby and a mother who was continually doing things to keep them entertained. On the other side were some really interesting people from California and we had fun talking to them.
The morning was clear and sunny, but the weather kept predicting clouds and rain. We decided to sit in the car and do some more meditating on clear skies.
We walked around, saw lots of vendors and lots of astronomical gear and TV film crews and bought t-shirts and had pulled pork sandwiches (I love the Midwest!)
At about the time that the eclipse was to start, it clouded up and started to sprinkle. We got out our special glasses and started watching and although we couldn’t see it all the time, the clouds would part every few minutes and we would be able to see the eclipse happening through our glasses. Every time the clouds parted and it was visible, people would start whooping and hollering.
Suddenly, it started to really rain and the cloud cover became complete. We got back into the car and we meditated some more. Neither of us ever went into upset or disappointment, and even though we didn’t say it, we both knew that wasn’t the way to go so we didn’t go there.
After about 20 minutes of rain, we saw people starting to leave. We were stunned. Richard said, “Can you imagine coming all this way and then leaving? That’s not what we’re going to do, baby”. Lots of people were driving out and then suddenly the rain stopped. It was 1:05, one minute before totality. As we stepped out of the car, the clouds suddenly parted and at 1:07 (exactly the middle point of totality where we were), we saw the total eclipse. People started hooping and hollering. The people who were in the line driving out stopped their cars, got out and saw it.
And then the truly spectacular sight happened. The shadow crossed the earth and the day went black. I took this video and I’m kind of jostled around a little bit because Richard grabbed me in the middle of it to give me a big kiss, but you can really see the difference between day and night. And you can hear me as I keep saying “Oh my God”. It was one of those days, where we just kept saying “Oh my God” over and over.

What I keep thinking and what I say in the video is can you imagine what the ancients must have thought of the first total eclipse they saw? They must have thought the world was ending.
And then just as suddenly, the world became light again. The people next to us from California kept saying “Those people who left, they had no faith. We had faith and we were rewarded. What if Christopher Columbus had said, “oh it’s raining, I’m turning back”. And then they started a game with it, “what if George Washington..” and kept naming different names and laughing. Richard looked at me and said “it’s all about having faith, baby”.
We spent another hour watching the rest of the eclipse and the clouds would come and go and we were more excited every time the clouds opened up.
What an incredible day — an eclipse plus two miracles — the first when the man gave us his last ticket and the second when the clouds parted at exactly totality. We felt so blessed and so taken care of. And we felt that our faith had indeed been rewarded.
Faith is an interesting thing, isn’t it? It’s so easy to lose our faith. It’s so easy to feel defeated and to not keep on going. It’s so easy to take on the other belief — the one that says I never get what I want.
We have a choice in life – we get to decide what we believe. We can have faith and trust and believe what I have on a flyer in my office – “Things always work out for me” or we can go the other way — we have that choice in every moment.
What I’ve discovered in my own life (and with working with people for over 30 years) is that the more we can stay in the higher, positive vibrations, the more the chances are increasing that everything really does work out for us. The problem is that for most people, staying in those higher, positive vibrations is difficult, if not impossible.
It used to be really difficult for me also. But then everything shifted for me when I first came to Sedona and started working with the amazing practitioners here. That’s why I started Sedona Soul Adventures over 15 years ago — I wanted other people to be able to experience that same kind of transformation.
Are you ready to start believing that everything works out for you and to live a life where that’s true? I’m guessing it might take some shifts for that to happen, and that’s where we come in. You can have those shifts happen incredibly fast in Sedona. It’s a place of true transformation, with incredible healers from all over the world drawn here to do their work. We work with the best of them and we can custom design a retreat that can bring you into the life and the relationship you want. It’s actually easier than you might think.
It’s a particularly potent time to come to Sedona right now, while the eclipse energy is still being felt. I believe that this eclipse has ushered in a new age of consciousness and we’ll be feeling the effects of it for many months. Things are coming up for healing in ways that they haven’t appeared before. Now is the time to take advantage of that.
Connect with us. We’ll talk to you (or both of you, if it’s a couples retreat) in deep conversation. We’ll get at the root of what’s going on and then we’ll custom design a retreat that will bring you into those higher, faster vibrations and even better, we’ll give you the tools to take home so you can stay there.
Experience the miracle that is Sedona.

Sedona Soul Adventures – Transforming Lives One Soul At A Time

Rachel says her Soul Adventure “was the miracle I needed” to find my life purpose

“I have been obsessed with trying to figure out my life purpose since I was a kid. That I did not already know the answer at 34 was more than depressing. I was angry with myself for not knowing my purpose. I was grieving and unable to forgive myself or anyone around me. My 3-day retreat answered every single one of my questions and opened the door to forgiveness and healing. I know what my purpose is. I am living my purpose now. Sedona Soul Adventures was the miracle I needed and I’m so grateful I had the courage to be open to growth.”

Rachel T., Des Plaines, Illinois

Have you always wanted to see the Pyramids? Come with me to Egypt Feb. 11-25

Like seeing the eclipse this week, seeing the Great Pyramid was something I always wanted to do, ever since I was a little kid. I was also fascinated by the gods and goddesses of ancient Egypt and the stories of the Pharaohs. I know I’ve seen “The Ten Commandments” over 50 times and I can’t hear the name “Ramses” without thinking of Yul Brynner. For me, Ramses will always be Yul Brynner.
Imagine my surprise when I first came to Egypt and discovered that there are things that are equally amazing and incredible and fantastic? Like the statues of Abu Simbel, the Isis Temple at Philae, the Luxor temple?
Every year on our Egypt trip, it’s the same thing — people are amazed at everything that is there and how magnificent and fantastic it is.
If Egypt is on your bucket list, come with me on our next Return to Egypt trip. We go to all of these amazing places (and more!) Plus, not only do we go to the Great Pyramid, we have 2 hours of private time just for our group where we do ceremony and meditation.
It truly is the trip of a lifetime.

If you have specific questions, send me an email at:
Or call me – 877/204-3664
I love talking about Egypt!

You MUST do this tomorrow! [My gift to you – FREE Meditation]

As you read this on Sunday morning I will be traveling to St. Joseph, Missouri with my wonderful fiancé, Richard, to view the total eclipse of the Sun. The eclipse is going to be full on for 2 minutes and 41 seconds, the day will turn into night, everything as we know it will be turned upside down for a little bit. For me, this is a once in a lifetime event and I fully intend to experience the Divine in a number of ways.
Here’s Richard modeling the glasses we’re going to use to look directly into the sun. I can’t wait.
And it’s so great, a few weeks ago I wrote in the newsletter that I was going to do this and one of our clients who lives in that area [she’s done 2 Soul Adventures, gone to Egypt with me twice (!), done coaching with me – I love her!] read that I was coming and sent me an email, so now we’re also going to have dinner with her in Kansas City, isn’t that great?
But I’m writing to you today to ask you, nay, plead with you, to please take advantage of this incredible energy that is bathing the United States on this momentous day. This is unlike any kind of energy that you are going to experience in your lifetime and if you’ll just take a little time to connect in with it (more on that below), I think you’ll be happy you did.
Have you been feeling a little weird lately? A little off? Or have things in your life really taken a nose dive and seem to be going off the rails? I want to tell you, it’s getting really strange out there right now for a whole lot of people, including myself.
I wrote about this a few weeks ago in the newsletter and it seems like things are getting even worse, which we knew would happen starting with the lunar eclipse on August 7 and culminating with this total solar eclipse on August 21 (tomorrow).
This eclipse is all about transformation and transformation happening really quickly, especially in relationships. Things are going to be moving in ways that will probably make you look back in a few weeks and say “what happened?”
The key here is to connect with that Highest Part of Yourself and to do everything you can to stay in that connection. When we operate from the higher vibrations, it doesn’t matter what is happening on the outside — we stay connected to the highest parts of ourselves, and everything falls into place.

To that end, I want to help you stay in that connection. I’m gifting you with my meditation “Connecting to the Highest Part of Yourself”. This is part of The Sedona Meditations series and usually sells on our website for $9.99, but I want you to have it as my gift to help you navigate through these times.
Please take some time on Monday to do this meditation. To make is especially potent, do it during the time the eclipse is happening in your area or close to you (you can easily Google that).
Sit quietly and connect with that highest part of yourself. The meditation is only 9 minutes long, so you definitely have the time to do it. And I would highly recommend that you do it not only tomorrow, but do it today and every day thereafter. Connecting with the highest part of yourself is one of the keys to have the life you want.
Just Click here to download the meditation. Use the password “Sedona”.
And for this week of the eclipse, I’ve decided to make the entire set of the The Sedona Meditations available to you for only $19.99 (the entire set usually sells for $99). If you’d like more information, Click here.
But of course in these troublesome and difficult times, the real relief can come from finally freeing ourselves from the blocks and wounds that are keeping us from the connection we so deeply desire. Everything that is happening right now is bringing all of our issues up for healing. It’s time for the healing to take place. And the best way I know to do that is to do a Sedona Soul Adventures retreat. We will spend time talking with you before you even come to Sedona to really get at the heart of what’s going on in your life (or your relationship, if it’s a couples retreat). Then we’ll custom design your retreat of private sessions that will bring you into the connection you’re craving. Click here and we’ll contact you.

Michael says his Soul Adventure was “the best three days of his life” and gave him “inner peace, calm and balance”

“I came for my Soul Adventure filled with confusion, questions and a lot of negative energy. The insight and wisdom of each session practitioner and the peacefulness and beauty of Sedona itself, as well as the Blessed Spirits there help me find inner peace, calm and balance. It was the best three days I have ever spent in my life. Thank you for your wonderful people and amazing customer service.”

Michael V., Lutz, Florida

Holly says “my trip to Egypt with Sedona Soul Adventures was the most incredible experience I’ve ever had” and brought me “self realization”

“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.”

Holly Kaplan

Holly actually went to Egypt twice with me, the second time she brought her mother. And it’s so true. The trip brings a level of self realization that is amazing. And she’s right, six months later the effects are still being felt and helping her in her everyday life.
Join me on this amazing experience, February 11-25, 2018.

This one thing makes all the difference in every area of your life

This past week, I read an article, heard something on the radio and saw something online that all said the same thing. When I get things in three’s like that it always means I’m supposed to share that with you. What they said was not new, we all know this on one level or another, but the way they said it and the how was what was really interesting to me.
• The article was about the #1 thing that attracts the opposite sex.
• The radio segment was about a study that demonstrates what makes for the best guide dogs.
• The online posting was about how to have the most success in a job interview.
I don’t think this will surprise you, but the ways I’m going to talk about it might be interesting to you. The key in all of these (including the guide dogs) was (drum roll, please) Confidence.
The article that I read was talking about that the #1 thing that really “gets” the opposite sex is confidence. Men can feel it in women and women can feel it in men. The higher the confidence level (and we’re not talking about egomania, we’re talking about confidence), the higher the level of attraction.
The second one was the one most interesting to me. They did a study of guide dogs, following 100 puppies from the time of their birth through their graduation of guide dog training and then their time as a guide dog. What they were looking at initially was “who made the best guide dogs? Puppies who were from mother dogs who were very attentive and involved with them or puppies who came from mother dogs who were much less attentive?” When I first heard them talking about it, I assumed that, of course, the puppies who had been more attended to as they were growing up were the ones who ultimately became the best guide dogs. To my amazement, the opposite was true. The puppies who had to fend more for themselves made better guide dogs later on. The puppies who had “helicopter mothers” (the type who hover over everything) didn’t even make it through the guide dog training — they weren’t as focused and they were more hyper, they weren’t calm enough to become guide dogs.
On further study, they discovered that the puppies who had to fend more for themselves had more confidence. They were calmer and being calm is the most important attribute of a guide dog.
The third one — that confidence was the #1 thing that mattered in a job interview — was less surprising, but the thing that did surprise me was that confidence mattered even more than education. Experience mattered as much as confidence if the experience was exactly the same, but if someone had experience that was not exactly the same, confidence became more important. The potential employer wanted to feel like the person would be able to do the job, and the confidence the person exuded meant more than education and experience.

[And, amazingly, as I was in the middle of writing this, I opened a newsletter written by a friend of mine who was describing what it takes to be a “Most Valuable Player” and one of the attributes was Confidence — another validation!]

What exactly is confidence? When I looked up the definition of confidence, here’s what I got:
Confidence: a feeling of self-assurance arising from one’s appreciation of one’s own abilities or qualities.
Example: “she’s brimming with confidence”
What I find most interesting in that definition is that they’re saying it’s “a feeling”, because that’s all confidence is — it’s a feeling. You can’t measure it, you can’t get a degree in it, you can’t get a certification in it. It’s either there or it isn’t. Some people have it and some people don’t.
Men feel it in women, women feel it in men, dogs feel it, potential employers feel it — everyone we come into contact with feels it from you or they don’t.
It’s so interesting to me that sometimes I will find people who have a lot of confidence and I’m wondering where that came from. They don’t have the outward things that would make you assume they would have confidence — good education, good looks, good background, money, etc., etc.
And the truly mystifying thing to me in the work that I do is seeing someone who from all outward appearances SHOULD have a lot of confidence (e.g., a woman who is gorgeous, smart, loving, giving, accomplished, etc.) and then to discover that inside they are a mass of insecurities.
If confidence is so important — we can see from above that it matters in love, in doing a good job and even getting a good job — why don’t we all just “act as if” we’re confident? The simple answer is, we can’t.
Most of us have fears or wounds or negative thoughts or insecurities that keep us from feeling truly confident. It’s like I said before, it’s either there or it isn’t and what I’ve found in 30 plus years of working with people, there’s some kind of emotional gunk that’s holding most people back from feeling truly confident.
Wouldn’t you love to feel confident?
Wouldn’t you love to be a person who’s brimming with confidence?
I truly believe (and I see it all the time) that it’s possible to become a confident person — once you’ve cleared out the fears and the wounds and the emotional gunk that is keeping you from feeling confident. Because think about it — it’s just these things we tell ourselves that are keeping us from feeling confident, or these feelings of insecurity. When we get rid of all that gunk, the confidence comes pouring through and sooner or later we’re brimming over with it.
If you’re ready to get rid of the gunk and be the confident, joyful person you were meant to be, please contact us. Talk to us and we’ll custom design the perfect retreat that will bring you the life or the relationship you’re craving.

Stephanie says her Soul Adventure gave her “happiness and confidence”

“I was referred to Sedona Soul Adventures from a friend that had had an amazing experience at a time in his life where he needed clarity and spiritual guidance. I had just barely survived a very traumatic divorce which lasted over a year and was emotionally exhausted and very sad. I went to Sedona seeking guidance from any source that was willing to give it to me. AND I GOT IT!!! I arrived filled with much pain and anger and unsure where I was headed in life. I had lost my confidence and was not happy with the person I had become. In a few short days, I was able to release all of my pain and anger and look at my life as a wonderful adventure waiting to unfold. I left feeling as if there was nothing I couldn’t achieve. In the few days since I’ve been home, I have so many wonderful things that have happened to me and now look forward to each day! I have my happiness and my confidence back. This was an amazing adventure that I wish all could experience!!!”

Stephanie S., Las Vegas, Nevada

Watch my beautiful Egypt video – and then Return to Egypt with me February 11-25

This is a beautiful 10 minute video that is a compilation of many years of our Egypt trip, since 2004. It still thrills me every single time I see the Pyramids and the Sphinx. I never get over it. Click the image to see the video.
If you feel the same way, Return to Egypt with me February 11-25. It’s such an incredible trip – the Great Pyramid (including 2 hours of private time just for our group for meditation and ceremony) the Sphinx, Abu Simbel, the Isis Temple at Philae and much more. All the accommodations are 5 star, including our 5 day 5 star cruise down the Nile and the price is all inclusive.


The coming eclipses are already affecting you and your relationships – here’s what to do

We always get a lot of people calling us who are under stress and having a difficult time. But the past few weeks have been unusually intense. In a meeting this week with my Angel Guides (the people who talk to each person and custom design their retreats), we talked about how things seems to be even more intense right now. One of my Angel Guides (who is also an astrologer) said – “it’s the eclipses – the effects are already showing up”.
I knew she was right and I immediately did some additional reading on it and let me just tell you – if everything feels to you like it’s going to hell in a hand basket right now, it’s not your fault! There are cosmic forces at work here and knowing just a little bit about it can help you not only weather it, but come through it better than ever.
Eclipses are times of great upheaval. They turn everything upside down and inside out. They upset the natural order. There are so many incredible historical things that have happened at the time of eclipses, but for the average person (like you and me), they tend to cause upheaval in our relationships — not only with partners, but with other important people in our lives and even with our relationship with ourselves. Underlying problems that already exist in your relationship (communication problems, mistrust, lack of connection, etc.) are brought up to be examined and healed. These problems will either be healed or they’ll continue to get worse.
There are 2 major eclipses that are happening in the next few weeks and they are of such huge import, that you are probably feeling the effects of them already. Let me explain.
The first one is a lunar eclipse on August 7. In a lunar eclipse, the earth comes between the sun and the moon. Lunar eclipses are designed to purge things from our lives that are no longer working. So from that standpoint they can be tremendously helpful. The problem is that most eclipses do things with a lot of upheaval, and most people don’t like change that is big and fast. So you have two choices here – you can ride the wave of change or you can resist it. Resistance usually causes even more violent, volcanic change.
This eclipse is in Aquarius, which means there will be laser focus on problems in our love relationships and friendships. You may even be thinking about throwing in the towel on your relationship. Remember that this eclipse is very emotion-driven. It may be best to wait to make life changing decisions until you’ve really had some time to sit and think. And definitely wait until the solar eclipse on August 21.
Because it’s the total solar eclipse of August 21 that is the one to get ready for. This is the first time since 1918 that a total solar eclipse is crossing over the United States, going from Oregon to Nebraska to South Carolina. Astronomers are calling this The Great American Solar Eclipse and many astrologers believe that this will affect people in the U.S. even more dramatically because it will pass directly over us.
In a Solar Eclipse, the Moon passes between the Earth and the Sun. Day turns to night. The temperature drops dramatically. You can see the stars sparkling in the sky. Can you imagine how this other-worldly event must have terrified the first humans who saw it?
People who have seen a solar eclipse have described it as one of the most incredible and spiritual experiences of their lives. I heard someone on NPR describing the experience about a month ago, and immediately decided “I need to do this”. It won’t be in the US again in my lifetime. So my fiancé, Richard, and I have booked our flights and hotel and we’re going to see it in St. Joseph, Missouri.
This is both a New Moon and a Solar Eclipse. New Moons are all about new beginnings. New Moons are always very impulsive and this one seems like it may be even more impulsive than usual. Because it is focused on relationships, we may feel the need to “throw the baby out with the bath water”, but wait until things settle down a little to make decisions like those.
Which takes me back to the beginning. We have so many people calling us right now who are thinking seriously of ditching their marriage. Or singles are calling us, saying they’re feeling disconnected and disjointed and at cross-purposes in their lives.
Here’s the good news — these eclipses will help you focus on all aspects of relationships (with a partner, other people close to you and yourself). You can see the intentions of others and discover imbalances which are causing disharmony. You can get more in touch with your own needs and make choices based on your highest and best interests.
So, while you may be feeling all kinds of upheaval, or feeling like you don’t know what to do, this is actually a very powerful time and you can utilize this energy to your advantage. This is a time when things can really be shaken up and changed. And definitely changed for the better, if you can use the energy to your highest good.
The most important thing is to do something. Problems that aren’t addressed during this time won’t go away, they will simply get worse. This is the Universe telling you it’s time to take action and do something.
Come to Sedona and do a retreat and let us help you to navigate these difficult times. If you’re in a relationship that’s having some difficulties, don’t let the eclipse find you with the rug pulled out from under you. Or if you feel like you aren’t living up to your full potential, we can help you with that too. The great thing about our retreats is that they are custom designed for each person (or each couple) and the even greater thing is that they work!

Sedona Soul Adventures – Transforming Lives One Soul At A Time
(877) 204-3664

Ann was afraid her Soul Adventure would be a dud, but it was “life changing”

“I wanted to take a minute or two to thank you and your staff for a life changing experience. I’d read all the testimonials and was impressed with what people had to say about their experiences. That was one of the things that drew me to you. I was also drawn to having an individualized experience. As time passed and I was preparing to come I started having doubts….what if I don’t have a life altering experience, what if I’m a dud? Or what if these folks are a bunch of new age hucksters??? My fears were all for naught. You’re the real deal. I did have a life altering experience. (I wasn’t a dud after all!) I’m so thankful to my Angel Guide for setting up a wonderful retreat  and to all of the other practitioners I worked with. Life changing!”

This huge love we have for our pets and how we can use that in our lives [Plus cute pics]

Today is my dog Daisy’s birthday, she is 8 years old. She is a golden retriever/yellow lab mix and what an amazing blessing she has been in my life. Here she is at 5 weeks, what a cutie (and here she is with her brother and sister – is that adorable, or what?).
I went through my divorce one year after I got her, and she was such an incredible comfort to me. It was during that time that I first connected with my pet psychic here in Sedona. Our break up had been very sudden and Daisy kept sitting at the door, waiting for Tom to come home, it was heartbreaking to watch her. And then she got so sad, that she started peeing into one of my rugs from Egypt.
I made an appointment with the pet psychic, telling her I wanted her to talk with Daisy. Sharon does all her work over the phone and when she called me at the appointed time, she suddenly said, “do you have a cat?” I said yes, I have Katie Kat (here she is) and Sharon said “I thought you only had a dog, the cat keeps talking to me”. I told her I wanted her to talk to the dog and she said, “ok, except the cat keeps talking. What do you want me to ask the dog?” I explained about the break up, Daisy moping at the door and the peeing and I told Sharon, “Please tell Daisy Mommy and Daddy are getting a divorce. It’s not your fault, we both love you very much, but Daddy’s not coming back.” Sharon told her all this and Daisy said “I know — the cat told me!”
We comforted Daisy, she told us she was sad and peeing in the rug made her feel better, especially when she would smell it. Sharon spoke with her and after that, she never peed in the carpet again. She also stopped pining at the door.
The most important thing that happened during that conversation is that Daisy told me that she is part of my family, that she came here to be with me in this lifetime and even though she had originally been Tom’s dog (he found her, he trained her, he thought of her as “his” dog), she said all of this had been part of the Divine plan, she came here to be with me, especially through this difficult time of the divorce.
And what a huge part of my life she has been. She and her brother Boulder (who lives in Oak Creek Canyon with my dear friend (and practitioner) Ranjita) are just total love. When I look at them (Daisy is on the left), I get a real idea for how perfect our lives can be. Think about it: they are beautiful, strong, healthy, fun, amusing, funny, incredibly smart and just full of love. They love absolutely everybody. They want to be with everyone. They want to participate. They want to play. They are full of life.
And here’s sweet Katie Kat, who just turned 18 in April! She is beautiful, wise, quiet, calm, and incredibly loving. She snuggles with me each night on the cuddly blanket. Whenever I travel somewhere, she always jumps in the suitcase, trying to figure out how she can go with me (here she is in the suitcase).
And now because of my fiancé, Richard, I have two more beings in my life. Prancer will be 14 in 2 months and although he’s slowing down considerably and has some health issues, he is the sweetest, most gentle dog. Missy is a miniature Labradoodle (her original name was Macarena, but she told Sharon she actually prefers to be called Missy). She’s our little princess — she loves us so much and she wants to feel our love for her and she wants us to tell her how much we love her and how pretty she is. I just got her a pink collar with rhinestones, befitting her very feminine status.
We’ve done a few sessions with Sharon to make sure the family meshes in a wonderful way and they’ve been doing very well. Katie Kat is not happy that there are now 3 dogs in the house, but it’s been so fascinating to see (and to hear from Sharon) what they’re thinking and feeling. All the dogs know that Katie Kat is the “wise one” and they defer to her. Prancer and Missy were used to sleeping on the bed with Richard (and he thought it would be impossible and very unfair to try to keep them off the bed). We haven’t had to do anything — after a few nights of Katie Kat giving them “the hairy eyeball”, they all just stay off the bed.
In our last session with Sharon, they all talked about how much they love each other, how much they love Richard and I, and how happy they are to see the love between me and Richard.
Because that’s what they’re all about — love. And that’s why I feel it’s so wonderful for us to have our four-leggeds in our lives and for us to learn from them. They are the most perfect example of unconditional love we will every have.
Plus I get the extra added bonus of feeling a rush of love each and every time I pet them, or talk to them, or go for a hike with them — they are always uplifting.
And look how I’ve described all of them — beautiful, gentle, wise, calm, powerful, strong, fun, funny, sweet, gentle, they love absolutely everybody, they want to be with everyone, they want to participate, they want to play, they are full of life.
And I’ll add a few other ones – they are not judgmental, they don’t worry, they’re not self conscious. All of these little beings, each in their own way, demonstrates a very high level of self esteem, with no ego and no artifice.
Wouldn’t it be great to be like that? I have to say, I very often think of Daisy as a role model, especially when I feel worried. She never worries about anything — she knows she is totally taken care of in every moment. Here she is carrying a huge branch. She does this every time we go hiking, it’s like it’s her life purpose to find large logs and carry them through the forest. We often go hiking with my friend Susan and her wonderful dog, Sophie, and Susan calls Daisy “the branch manager”. Daisy is happily doing her appointed “work”.
All of these attributes come from having a strong inner core. A strong connection. Knowing that all is well. An inner peace that comes from living in connection. I believe these little beings are living that way. Are you?
We can all have that, this sense of peace and purpose, we just have to find the way in. For most of us, it means letting go of the blocks and gunk that are keeping us rooted in the past and fearful about the future. If that’s what’s happening for you, please think about coming out to Sedona for a retreat. We’ll zero in on what’s keeping you from having the peace and contentment and satisfaction that you’re craving.
What’s the problem you’re grappling with? Is it your work? Your relationship? A feeling that you’re not living up to your true potential? Talk to one of our Angel Guides and they’ll figure out what’s going on and what’s holding you back from living the life of your dreams. Then they’ll custom design a retreat that will clear out the blocks and gunk, bring you back into connection and give you the tools to have the life or the relationship you’re dreaming about.

Sedona Soul Adventures – Transforming Lives One Soul At A Time

Bobbyjo says her Soul Adventure was “life changing” and that she’s “never felt so connected to my own true self”

“My Sedona Soul Adventures retreat was life changing. The kind of life changing experience you hold so close to your heart you will go to any lengths to continue your journey long after your gone. I have never felt so connected to my own true self and the people around me like I have since my Soul Adventure. There isn’t a day that goes by where I don’t take a few minutes to close my eyes and return back to the Bliss that Sedona gave me.”

Our Fabulous Egypt trip Feb 11-25, 2018 – I'm limiting it to 19 people – book it now

Can you believe it? This next Egypt trip will be my 18th trip to Egypt!
My friends all say to me, “Debra, aren’t you over Egypt yet?” and the answer is NO!, I’m not. It’s amazing and incredible and new every single year.
So this is truly going to be our most amazing trip yet. Why? Because:
1. We’re staying at the fabulous 5 star Mena House, which is right next to the Pyramids. The Mena House is an historic, incredible hotel that is right next to the Pyramids and we were able to get it for this trip. It was originally built in the 1860’s as a hunting lodge for the British aristocracy, it’s such a phenomenal place. I stayed there in 1983 when I went to Egypt the first time and I’ve stayed there 5 times since then. I’m so excited to be there again.
2. The exchange rate is incredible, so shopping will be extraordinary. The exchange rate is an incredible 17 to 1 right now (17.99 specifically, meaning 17 Egyptian pounds to 1 US Dollar). In the past, the rate was usually 3 to 1, so this will make the shopping absolutely incredible, especially for things like hand made rugs and jewelry.
3. This trip is perfect. I’ve been doing this trip every year since 2004. Every year we make tweaks to it and I must say, that at this point (especially with the addition of the Mena House), it’s truly perfect. We see all the must see places, plus places the average tourist doesn’t see. Guardian Travel is always adding surprises, so it’s going to be amazing.
4. Seeing the Pyramids, Karnak, Abu Simbel and cruising the Nile in 5 star luxury. Seeing all these amazing places is so incredible. Staying in 5 star hotels and cruising down the Nile in a 5 star cruise ship, stopping at temples along the way, is simply amazing.
5. This is a spiritual experience unlike any other. If you feel a pull toward Egypt, that means Egypt is calling you and has something in store for you. The energy in Egypt is amazing and experiencing these places is phenomenal. I just had an email this morning from someone who was on the trip this past February and she said the ceremony inside the Great Pyramid (we have 2 hours of private time just for our group inside the Great Pyramid) completely changed her life. And from everything that’s happened to her in the past 6 months (all of it amazing and incredible), it obviously has! That’s what the Egypt trip does for you.
6. I think this is the last year there won’t be huge crowds in Egypt. Europeans have started going back to Egypt, we saw that in February in Karnak and Luxor. In the past, Egypt was difficult because there were so many people there and over the next few years, that will continue to increase. It’s such a joy to go there now and not have huge crowds of people, and I think this will be the last year for that — so go now!
7. Absolutely everything is taken care of for you. I’ve been working with Guardian Travel since 1995 and they are such a joy. They greet us warmly at the airport and after that we don’t touch another bag for 2 weeks. They take care of everything at the hotels, for all our transportation, slipping baksheesh (tips) to the guards so we can do a meditation in a temple, all the hundreds of details that make the trip so memorable.
8. Being with other like minded seekers adds such a wonderful level to the trip.
9. Don’t worry if you don’t have someone to travel with. Our groups usually fall in love with each other within 48 hours and make friendships that last a lifetime.
The big question that everyone asks is, “Is Egypt safe?” I have been going to Egypt since 1983. The Egyptian people are some of the nicest, friendliest, warmest people I have ever met and they love Americans.
I have been taking groups to Egypt each year for 12 years (since 2004). I have taken 6 groups since the revolution (the last one this past February, 2017) and these 6 trips have (in my opinion) been the best ones ever. There’s an excitement and a new feeling about the Egyptians that even having the beginnings of more freedom has brought to them.
I was just there in February and it was absolutely wonderful and we all felt completely safe at all times.
But don’t take my word for it. Here is what some of the people from last year’s trip had to say:
“The Return to Egypt trip was most definitely my Journey of a Lifetime!!! I have never felt more safe, secure, or well taken care of in any of my travels as I did with SSA and Guardian Travel.”
Linda Kaczor
“Debra, I would like to express my sincere gratitude to you for this life altering and most memorable journey to Egypt. I need to express a very important message. EGYPT IS VERY SAFE!! Not once did I ever feel I was in any danger. Our guides at Guardian Travel were wonderful.”
Diane Sardoni
“My visit to Egypt with Sedona Soul Adventures was absolutely amazing! I felt completely safe and taken care of by SSA and Guardian Travel. The Egyptian people were so friendly, warm and welcoming.”
Diane Reynolds
10. We’re limiting the group to 19 people. In the past, I’ve had much larger groups for the Egypt trip. This past June we had a smaller number for the Peru trip and it was so great. It makes it more intimate and more fun, so I’ve made the decision to limit the group to 19. Considering I already have 10 people who have told me they want to go this year, sign up soon to insure your place. If you already know you want to go, Click here to place your deposit.

Insanity! Are you doing it and if so how do you change it?

I love this Einstein quote because it is so true. “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result”.
In the past few weeks, I’ve connected with three different people who wished they had started their new life sooner. Two did a Sedona Soul Adventures couples retreat, the other one did an individual retreat.
In each situation, they all said, “I wish I had done this a long time ago”.
All three of them had contacted us 2-3 years ago. They knew they had problems and knew they needed help, but they all made the decision not to come because they felt that it was too expensive, they didn’t have the time and things “weren’t that bad”. When they contacted us this time, they knew they had to do something.
The couple (for privacy, let’s call them Sam and Diane), tried therapy and they both felt the therapy actually made things worse. They told me that each session only resulted in talking about what was wrong, with no emphasis on how to change it. They said their fights (and their sense of disconnection) just got worse and worse.
The other person (let’s call her Susan), tried going to a series of group workshops. She said she thought that the initial cost was going to be less expensive than a Soul Adventure, but that she actually spent as much as she ended up spending on her Soul Adventure. She said that she got some good information at the workshops, but nothing was done that actually changed things around for her.
Sam and Diane and Susan both kept doing the same things over and over again for those 2 years. Sam and Diane didn’t change anything about how they were dealing with each other as a couple. They tried some therapy but it didn’t change anything fundamentally.
Susan made an attempt to change things, but the things she tried didn’t change anything around.
For all three of them, things just kept getting worse and worse. Finally, they knew that had to do something.
I was worried for Sam and Diane because by the time they got here they both said they felt they were at the end of their marriage. When they had contacted us 3 years ago, they were unhappy and discontented – now things had gotten much worse and they both felt it might be hopeless.
I felt more hopeful for Susan, but she was at a point of despair and sometimes it can be hard to bring people out of that.
Luckily, their Angel Guides came through as they always do and put together perfect retreats for them. In their Emotional Clearing sessions, Sam and Diane both realized that underneath it all, they truly loved each other. In their breath work sessions, they connected with the Divine and that helped them connect with each other. They did an Enneagram session and realized for the first time the unique way they communicate with each other (which sometimes is great and sometimes causes all kinds of problems). They discovered the childhood wounds that were separating them and healed them.
As Sam said in their final Integration session, “Before our Soul Adventure, we were at the end of our marriage. Now, I know we can save our marriage.”
Susan had an ecstatic experience from day one. She said “each of the practitioners was incredible, they really “got” me”. In her Radiant Heart Healing session, she discovered that underlying everything was her belief that she was unlovable, brought on by years of rejection and criticism by her mother (who has now passed). She was able to let go of all that pain and hurt and she said “it felt like these huge bricks were lifted off my shoulders”. In her breath session, her mother’s spirit actually came to her and told her how much she loved her. She said she “cried and cried”, but they were “tears of joy”. She did a beautiful Letting Go Ceremony out on the land and said she felt like she completely let go of all of the energy that was holding her back. At her final Integration session, she said, “I was seeking my life’s purpose and wanting assurance I am on the right path. After my Soul Adventure, I have healed my inner child and I’m sure about the next chapter of my life”.
And that’s the difference with our retreats. They actually change things. They clear out the gunk and the emotional blocks that are holding you back from the life or the relationship that you’re craving. They bring you back into connection on all the levels — physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. And when you’re operating in connection on all the levels — everything in your life becomes wonderful.
If you would want something different in your life or your relationship, you have to do something different. You have to make the decision you want something different, you have to spend the money, you need to take the time. It’s your life. It’s your relationship — how much is it worth to you?

Machu Picchu, Transformation and come with me next year!

It’s been another amazing tour of Machu Picchu and Peru. When you read this, I will just be returning home to Sedona.
Here we are on our first day at Sacsayhuaman. What an amazing place and one of the reasons I love it so much is that it reminds me of places in Egypt like the Great Pyramid and the Osirion. See those huge stones (and those aren’t the largest ones)? Just like those places in Egypt:

  • no one can explain how they cut these stones with such laser precision
  • no one knows how they were able to fit them together in such a way that they require no mortar or cement
  • no one knows for sure what these places were used for
  • no one knows for sure who built them

And just like Egypt, there are mummies here!
I love going to these amazing places, connecting with the energies and having incredible experiences.
And I’m so happy that my fiancé, Richard, came on the trip. This is his first time in Peru and Machu Picchu has been on his bucket list for many years. It’s so wonderful to be able to share this incredible experience with someone you love. And it’s even better when that person is into all the weird, interesting, spiritual stuff that I am
What a fabulous group has been on this trip! People from the US, Canada and the Ukraine. The woman who came from Canada had friends saying to her that she couldn’t go on a trip alone. She had never met me, she had never done a Sedona Soul Adventure and they kept telling her she shouldn’t go alone. So she got this adorable llama so she could tell her worried friends “I’m going with a friend”! She named it Dahna Llama and it became our group mascot.
And as usual, our group was in love with each other within 24 hours. There were only two couples on the trip, the rest were individuals (some married, some not). It’s one of the most wonderful parts of our trips, making friends that will last a lifetime.
We did so many incredible ceremonies while we were here. Ceremonies at Machu Picchu, Ollantaytambo, the Sacred Valley, Aramu Muru and Sullustani. Here’s one of my favorite photos from the trip, taken at the top of Ollantaytambo.
This is such an amazing place. Many people (including some of those on this trip) feel that the energy at Ollantaytambo rivals that at Machu Picchu, it’s that strong and wonderful.
And of course we did a very special ceremony at Aramu Muru, the Doorway that was discovered by our amazing shaman, Jorge Luis Delgado. He tells the story of his quest for the Doorway in his book “Andean Awakening”. Jorge grew up on Lake Titicaca, but didn’t believe in any of the spiritual traditions that he teaches now. He became a very well known tour guide in Peru and then suddenly started having dreams about an inter dimensional doorway that was somewhere on Lake Titicaca. When he kept having the dreams, he went to the elders of his community and they told him it was his life purpose to find the Doorway. That’s what he did and he recounts the story in his book. Here is Jorge and I doing ceremony at the Doorway.
Peru is an incredible place. Not just Machu Picchu, but all the amazing places that we visit. To be able to do this with Jorge Luis, to have his teachings and to be in his presence is such a gift. To be able to do it while having fun with other like minded adventurers really makes it the trip of a lifetime.
Wishing you a week filled with fun and adventures,

Happy New Year from Machu Picchu! My wishes from last year came true! [Do this process]

Happy New Year from Peru! In the Inca tradition, the winter Solstice marks the New Year. And that’s just where we were on June 21! What a blessing to have a second New Year and another opportunity to make new intentions. If you didn’t do so on June 21st, there’s still time to take a moment to sit down and set intentions for the new year, and I have a process below that’s simple and easy. It’s what I did last year and I got my two wishes, which were pretty big wishes!
When I think about it now, it’s kind of amazing to me to realize that one year ago at Machu Picchu I asked for 2 things: I wanted my book to come out and hit Amazon #1 and I wanted to have a committed, conscious relationship with a spiritually focused man. Two big things!
It’s taken 7 years for my book to come out and it’s been 7 years that I’ve been single. Isn’t that interesting? As of last June, there was still a lot to do on the book, so I wasn’t sure it would happen. But on October 19, my book “The Journey To Happy – How Embracing The Concept That Nothing Is Wrong Can Transform Your Life” came out. It not only hit Amazon #1, it made it in 5 categories and made International #1 in 4 countries.
But certainly the most wonderful and amazing wish that I am most grateful came true is finding my soul mate, Richard. I have to admit that when I made the wish last year I certainly thought that the wish for the book would be the most likely that would occur, because I had more control over that. But here we are one year later — I met Richard and we connected immediately, especially over our mutual commitment to our spiritual path. He was in San Jose, California and we did a long distance relationship, going back and forth between Sedona and San Jose as well as meeting other places.
Unbeknownst to me, he decided to ask me to marry him while I was in Egypt in February and then he proposed in March when we were in Aruba. He just moved to Sedona two weeks before we left for Peru. What a whirlwind!
If someone would have told me one year ago that all of this would have happened and unfolded in this perfect way, I don’t think I could have believed it. But here we are one year later, and it’s all happened and happened in the most amazing and beautiful way.
So I want to invite you to take the time to set intentions for what you want to have happen over the next 12 months. The energy of this Solstice is very powerful and you can take advantage of it.
Do this process – This is the same process I used in Machu Picchu last year at the Solstice. You can do it in 5 minutes. Sit quietly, with your eyes closed and breathe deeply. Think about all you have to be grateful for (even the smallest things). As you think of each thing, really fill your heart with the energy of gratitude and appreciation. Then take a few minutes to write those things down. With that energy of gratitude behind it, sit quietly for a few more minutes and think of what you would love to have happen over the next 12 months. See yourself in your mind’s eye as if it has already happened. What would you look like? How would you feel in your body? Start to feel waves of appreciation as if this has already happened.
Open your eyes and write down the things that you have asked for. Put your list some place where you will see it each day and you can energize it.
Think big — It’s amazing what can happen when you use the energy of gratitude and abundance. I thought big last year and look what happened!
When you look at your list does it seem possible and doable? Or do you feel stuck and that these things are impossible? If you think they’re impossible, they will be and that means you need to do something about it. If you feel stuck, you need to do something to get unstuck.
As I was writing this, I realized that throughout this past year, I did a lot of sessions with my practitioners whenever I started to feel stuck or felt fear coming up, both with the book and even around my relationship with Richard. I practice what I preach — I know that sessions with my amazing Sedona Soul Adventures practitioners can take me from where I am to where I want to be.
