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 over 15 years, I am still continually amazed at how almost everyone I come into contact with still has wounds from the past from their parents. I was thinking about it this week (since today is Father’s Day), but especially because one of our couples who were here doing a retreat this week 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 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 I made the correlation between my upbringing and my failed marriage. But it wasn’t until I finally forgave my dad, 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 it wasn’t causing 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 sessions 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 breath through 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, 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 and 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 saw me and said “I couldn’t love you any more 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 – we can help.

Vicky 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 driving 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!”

The Spiritual Parable of “Groundhog Day”

Have you ever seen the movie “Groundhog Day” with Bill Murray? I love that movie, I think it’s one of the top 10 spiritual movies of all time (if that sounds weird to you, keep reading).
Three weeks ago I had the most wonderful experience. My sister, Casey, is a director of plays and operas and she is also a voter for the Tony awards. She went to New York to watch Broadway shows for voting (she lives in Los Angeles) and invited me to come with her for the last 3 days of watching shows. We were in heaven! We saw Bette Midler in “Hello, Dolly!” and Cynthia Nixon and Laura Linney in “The Little Foxes”, both of which were wonderful. We also saw the musical version of “Groundhog Day” and that one had a special pull for me, because I love what it’s about.
You may not realize it if you’ve just watched it as a funny Bill Murray movie. But the movie was written by Harold Ramis. Harold Ramis was a Buddhist (he passed 3 years ago while I was in Egypt) and this movie is all about consciousness.
It’s all about how we perceive things.
It’s all about how everything can shift in an instant.
So if you’ve never seen the movie, go see it. And if you’ve never looked at it from this perspective, definitely watch it again.
In the movie, Phil, played by, Bill Murray, is re-living the same day (Groundhog Day) over and over again. He is stuck in his own personal hell with himself – he’s selfish, egotistical, shallow and doesn’t care about anyone other than himself. Worse, he can’t get out of it and he can’t get away from himself. He’s completely stuck. He goes through anger, frustration, manipulation, depression and even suicide (which doesn’t work) until something changes. He falls in love and begins to live his life from a completely different perspective; in that instant, his life changes.
It’s such an incredible parable:
When we start allowing what is, our life transforms.
When we love with no expectation or demands, we get exactly what we want.
We can transform from living in hell, to living in Heaven on Earth. And it just takes a second.
Do you sometimes feel like you’re living in a kind of hell? Do you feel like there’s nothing you can do about  it? Well, I’m here to tell you there is something you can do about it. Your life can be transformed if you’re willing to take responsibility for your life and your creations. The way you perceive the world and the way you move in the world can be changed in an instant. I see it all the time and it is truly miraculous.
It’s all about moving out the gunk and the blocks that are holding you in disconnection and then moving you back into connection on all the levels – physical, mental, emotional, spiritual. The specific ways are different for each person. That’s why our customized retreats are so powerful and effective.

Kelly says her Soul Adventure “surpassed all my expectations” and was “worth every penny”.

“Sedona Soul Adventures surpassed all my expectations. The practitioners are deeply committed, knowledgeable, and caring. I felt like l had the best possible experts all working together to help me find and focus on my “true” self. I have a tool box that I can use when faced with challenges, and am better able to recognize triggers and instead of reacting, I’m able to reconnect with my inner voice and follow a path that is informed by love instead of ego or fear. Worth every penny, and I plan to go back again for a refresher and/or to continue my development.”

Want a GREAT relationship (or anything else?) Make a list and get clear

 As many of you know, I got engaged in March. It was a complete surprise, I had no idea when we went on vacation to Aruba that he was planning to ask me to marry him (in the perfect setting, on the beach at sunset, with the most spectacular ring).
On one level, it was a surprise, but on another level I’ve realized since then that it was the culmination of a desire that had been borne within me a little over 18 months ago and looking back, I can see now what happened:

  • I made a decision
  • I made a list of what I wanted
  • I moved out some energetic blocks and
  • I moved into the energy of excited expectation

Does any of that make sense? Let me explain.
About three years ago, at a moment in my life when I was saying to everyone “I don’t want a relationship, I love my life”, suddenly a relationship appeared. I had been divorced for four years and there were lots of things about it that were really wonderful — he was smart, very well educated, attractive, fit, financially stable, and I thought he was an honest person and spiritually focused. But for the first time in a long time, I didn’t listen to that little voice inside my head and I ignored the weird vibrations that were literally keeping me awake at night.
The sudden discovery of lies and deceit was incredibly painful and humbling.
But the really great thing that came from that relationship, was that it made me realize I really did want someone to share my life with.
So I did what I do and what I tell everyone else to do. I made a list of what I wanted. Exactly what I wanted. I made the list as though I was waving my magic wand. I didn’t leave anything out just because it was too far out or too particular, or because it felt like I was asking for too much. Instead, I put in everything I wanted. All 21 items.
And then I set about figuring out what was holding me back from materializing my dream man. If you’ve read my book “The Journey to Happy, How Embracing The Concept That Nothing Is Wrong Can Transform Your Life”, you know I talk a lot in there about how we are all creating our own reality, what we think about is what we get and we are bringing in everything through our thoughts and beliefs and words and our energy.
So I started examining what I was thinking and feeling and to my horror, I realized I was indulging myself in some major “stinkin’ thinkin’”.
Because of everything that had happened in my previous marriage and my last relationship, I realized I was thinking things such as [guys who are reading this, I apologize in advance, but when you’ve been hurt, these are the thoughts you go to]:

  • men can’t be trusted
  • men are liars
  • men are children
  • men use women
  • men don’t want what women want
  • all the good ones are taken

But even worse, I realized that if I brought in a relationship while I was thinking and feeling all that, I would bring in a liar and a cheat, etc., etc.
So what it really came down to was – why would I want to mess up my beautiful life for some guy?
And the answer is (drum roll, please) – Love
We’re made to love. It’s as simple as that. God wants us to love. That’s why She gives us puppies and babies and ice cream. We come to this planet to experience all the emotions, but the really big emotion, the REALLY BIG ONE is love.
I know that, I’ve known it all my life, but I think I was hiding from it.
So the ending of the relationship 2 years ago, as painful as it was, had awakened in me a desire, a wanting to have that kind of ultimate connection again.
So I made my list. All 21 items.
And then guess what I did? I did what I tell everyone else to do all the time—I did a series of sessions with our practitioners because I knew the only way I was going to bring in what I wanted was to shift my limiting thoughts and beliefs and my energy so I would be a vibrational match to what I wanted – an honest, loving, smart, emotionally available, sexy, financially stable man who wanted a spiritually-centered relationship and who would love and adore me. Plus, I needed to really believe that I was worthy of that, that I wasn’t asking for too much and that it was possible. Sounds like kind of a tall order, doesn’t it?
I did a Radiant Heart Healing session that really helped me release the pain of the breakup and to open my heart again.
I did a Core Belief Transformation (actually more than one), shifting out of the beliefs that were no longer serving me (“men are liars”, “I’m not worthy”) and shifting into beliefs that would get me what I want (“men are doing the best they can, just like I am”, “I am loveable”, “I am desirable”).
I did an astrology reading that told me something might happen in a 6-month window in 2016-2017. That felt so far away!
I did an Emotional Clearing session to release my frustration that it felt so far away!
I did breathwork sessions which helped move me into the higher vibrations of compassion and love (including loving myself).
I did another Emotional Clearing session to bring me out of the vibration of “it’s never going to happen” and into the vibration of excited expectation.
I did a workshop with a friend in LA where she gave us these huge (plastic) diamond engagement rings, which I thought was a little bit corny, but she told us to focus on the ring and set the intention (and of course that is completely in alignment with creating the reality I wanted). When I got home, I put the ring in my makeup drawer, where I saw it everyday and just smiled.
And then I kind of forgot about it. I would meditate and I would flow energy toward “the list” and toward what I wanted. When I felt myself feel frustrated or afraid or sad, I would do something to switch that around.
My last relationship was a long distance relationship so of course I was telling myself I absolutely did not want a long distance relationship. I was on Match.com and I would get messages from men who lived far away and I developed this policy that if they lived further away than Phoenix, that I wouldn’t even respond to them. It felt rude, but what would happen is that if I responded and said I don’t want a long distance relationship, they would write back and say oh please, etc., etc. and that would start something so I just made this rule that I wouldn’t even respond to anyone more than 2 hours away.
Then suddenly, 2 weeks after I did a Core Belief Transformation session to release “it’s never going to happen”, I was in LA and sitting with my sister at the Casa del Mar hotel in Santa Monica watching the sunset. I received a message from a man in San Jose, California. I loved his photo and when I read his profile I just melted. I loved the combination of the work he was doing in the world, combined with the importance he placed on his spiritual life and that he was looking for a spiritually-centered partner. Although I “knew’ that nothing would come of this, I thought, I’m not going to be rude to this guy, I’m not going to diss him, I’m just going to tell him he’s too far away.
So I sent him an email that said “You look great, but you’re in San Jose.”
He wrote back and said “I know, I saw the insurmountable distance, but I saw your photo and I saw the work you’re doing in the world and I just wanted to let you know that there is someone out here who appreciates who you are”.
I showed the message to my sister and she said, “Good answer!”
I wrote him back, we emailed, we texted, we talked on the phone and Skype for hours on end, he came to Sedona for a visit and the rest is history. We got engaged in March, astounding me with an incredibly beautiful ring (remember the workshop and the plastic engagement ring?). He’s moving to Sedona next week.
There were 21 items on my list and he has all but one, “Has a grandbaby”. But he has a 21 year old son, so hopefully that’s in the future as well!
It’s so fascinating to me that even though I “knew” I didn’t want a long-distance relationship, I forgot to put on the list that I wanted someone who lives close by. Thank God I left that out!
Wounds from the past form our thoughts and beliefs and emotions about how we feel about everything and keep us from the happiness that is our birthright. Whether it’s a relationship, finding your life purpose, abundance, health – you name it. Focusing on what you want and clearing the blocks that are holding you back can completely change your life (or your relationship) around.
What’s holding you back? No matter what it is, we can help. I know it because I see it all the time with the people who come to us, but even more so in my own life. I’m so happy that I practice what I preach!

Pam says her Soul Adventure was “much more than I dreamt it would be” and “I was able to unlock and open the door to my heart which had been shut so tightly for so long”

“My Sedona Soul Adventure was much more than I dreamt it would be. The competence and skill of the practitioners who are associated with Sedona Soul Adventures is beyond anything I have ever experienced over many years of walking my spiritual path and consulting with numerous qualified practitioners in the metaphysical healing arts. By the time I took the trip my ability to feel anything other than pain and sadness had pretty much shut down. Individual psychotherapy could not teach me to feel and release all of the emotions frozen in time that had been accumulating inside of me over my lifetime. The practitioners guided me safely into the realm of pure feeling which allowed me to release all of the old emotions buried deep inside-some of which my waking mind had long forgotten or was simply unaware of. True grace followed. It’s amazing to realize how much love and joy I was cutting myself off from in my effort to play it safe and hide my heart in order to avoid more pain. I was able to unlock and open the door to my heart which had been shut so tightly for so long. This was truly one of the greatest experiences in my life.”

Want a good relationship? You have to be honest

We had a couple here last week who came to us saying they wanted more intimacy in their relationship. In their first sessions that they did separately (apart from each other), both of them admitted that they weren’t being honest with their partner about what was going on with them.
When their separate practitioners spoke with them about it, they each said the same thing: “I’m afraid she’ll/he’ll leave me.”. “I  can’t be honest: he/she will be upset and won’t understand”.
In their individual sessions, we worked through where this came from. For her, she had grown up in a family where her father was having an affair, her mother knew about, but no one talked about it, because everyone was afraid of upsetting the apple cart.
For him, his mother had a very volatile personality. Every time his father said anything even close to the truth, his mother “went ballistic”. His father never felt safe telling his mother the truth. Likewise, he never felt safe telling his wife the truth.
In their emotional clearing sessions and breathwork sessions (which they did separately), they worked through these emotional blocks which had been there for so many years. Both of them said they felt so freed up, having all that gone.
When they came back together in their next couples sessions, they both freely (and with love) told the other how they were feeling about everything. And guess what? They had a huge emotional breakthrough with each other, they both feel the marriage is on a new foothold and they even did a ceremony at the end to renew their marriage vows.
Both of them were amazed at what happened. Rather, than signaling the end, the honesty brought them closer together than ever. Both of them knew that something wasn’t right, they both had that feeling. The “truth” for each of them turned out to be much less awful than they thought it was going to be. In fact, it turned everything around.
She told me later, “I thought this would be the end of our marriage, if he knew how I was really feeling. Now I really believe we’ll be together forever, plus we have the tools to deal with each other honestly moving forward.”
And that, of course, is the key. As someone who was a divorce attorney for 20 years and who now does so much work with couples, I can tell you the fastest, quickest, most efficient and surest way to have the relationship of your dreams (and this is true of couples or friends or relatives, any relationship of any type) is to be honest. You be honest and allow the other person to be honest.
It’s amazing to me how many people respond to this with – “I can’t be honest, if I was honest, he/she would leave me (or be angry with me, or would never understand or I’ll hurt them”, everyone’s got a story about why they can’t be honest). If you had that response, I will tell you my friend, unless and until you figure out a way to be honest with your partner (or your friend, or your parents, or your siblings, etc.), the relationship is doomed to failure. It may take awhile, it may die a slow, agonizing death, but it will die.
As John Bradshaw said so often in his work, “our dysfunction is as big as our secrets”.
And stop telling yourself that what you’re doing is telling little white lies. There is no such thing as a white lie, there are only lies. Period.
Allowing the other person to be honest and taking them off the hook. So if you say you want a good relationship, then that means you’re going to have to be honest AND you’re going to have to allow the other person to be honest. I’m sure many of you are telling yourself that you always allow the other person to be honest, but do you really? Honestly?
What happens when they even start to broach something that they know is going to be sensitive to you? Do you immediately have a reaction? Do you immediately get upset? Do you have an automatic reaction when it comes to certain things (what your partner “should” be doing, how they “should” be behaving, what they “should” be interested in, aware of, talking about, etc.). If you find yourself using the word “should” a lot (or thinking it), you’ve got yourself a problem.
It won’t be possible for your mate (or partner, or friend, or child, etc.) to be honest with you if you can’t provide a safe place where they can be honest with you. If they know they’re going to get blasted, guess what they do? They shut up. And who’s fault is that? Both of you, but you can only take responsibility for your part in this, not theirs.
The only way to allow them to safely be honest with you, is if you make a decision to take them off the hook for what’s going on. If you truly want them to be honest with you, it can only be done in the space of love, not the space of judgment.
There are many areas where judgment will be automatic and where you will be telling yourself, of course I must be angry/upset/not okay with this. Realize that I’m not talking about condoning or encouraging hurtful behavior. I’m talking about giving your partner the space to open up to you.
Sometimes after everything that’s gone on in a relationship, it’s not possible to simply start being honest with each other. Sometimes you need help. That’s when doing a Couples Retreat can be so perfect. It gives you the perfect setting to truly open to each other in a safe and caring environment with practitioners who know how to facilitate this in a loving way. Plus, you’ll leave with tools to continue to do this in your day to day life.
Contact us and speak to one of our Angel Guides (they’re the ones who will design your retreat). They’ll connect with you (or both of you if it’s a couples retreat) and get to the root of what’s happening. Then they’ll custom design your retreat of private sessions that will bring you into the relationship you’re craving.

Busyness — it's getting crazy out there

I was sort of stunned by the reaction to my newsletter last week about Oprah. Whether you love her or hate her, she certainly evokes a reaction.
I don’t know why she is so strongly in my consciousness lately, but right after that I read another article she wrote and then I heard the craziest thing on NPR.
All of this has to do with busyness.
So the first part is what Oprah wrote in the last issue of O Magazine:
“For 25 years, I lived at 180 East Pearson in Chicago. Every morning at 6 o’clock, I was picked up in the basement garage of my towering building and driven to the basement of Harpo Studios, a 14-minute trip along darkened streets and the electrical hum of Michigan Ave. I’d work past 8 pm – many nights till 10. Only on weekends and in summer did I experience daylight”.
Then she goes on to say that getting outdoors (now that she has retired from her show) has restored her energy and centered her into wholeness.
The next thing was an incredible report on NPR. According to this study, the new status symbol in the United States is busyness. While it used to be that wealthy people who didn’t work were considered the high status people (“the idle rich”), now the busier you are, the more important you are considered to be, with higher status (as long as it’s work you actually want to be doing, not work you are being forced to do, just to make ends meet).
This is the result of research done by Neeru Paharia, a professor at Georgetown University. Her research has shown that the status symbol of leisure has been turned on its head, at least in the United States. In this day and age, we now attribute higher status, higher social standing to individuals who are always busy, always working hard, always spending many hours at work (again of their own volition, they want to be there).
How crazy is this?
It seems that everywhere we look, our culture is trying to make everyone crazier and crazier, more and more stressed, and more and more tense.
And then I think of Oprah going from one high rise building at 6 am and staying at another high rise building until 10 pm virtually every single night. I remember watching one of her shows when she was talking about and showing video of her working out at the specially designed gym she had at the Harpo studio. Never running, never walking outside, mainly working out on a treadmill under fluorescent lights.
Oprah has seen the difference it makes now that she’s not working the crazy hours and now that she’s spending time in nature as often as she can. In my newsletter last week, I talked about how she has finally discovered in just the past 2 years that she is whole, that she is “enough”. And now she shares that one of the ways she stays centered and whole is by spending as much time as possible in the outdoors.
After being a type A personality for most of my life and now having worked with clients at Sedona Soul Adventures for the past 15 years, my own unscientific research has shown me:

  • Everybody is way too busy
  • It’s making everybody miserable
  • It’s actually counter-productive
  • Everything we’ve been taught about working hard is just wrong
  • Just like Oprah finally discovered, I figured out that once I started slowing down, spending more time in nature, spending more time feeling balanced and centered, that’s when everything I wanted came to me — living my life purpose, being happy, being abundant.

It helps a lot to be in Sedona. Look at those red rocks in the picture. Just looking at the red rocks makes me feel so good. And hiking the trails with my dog is a sure fire way to feel centered and balanced. Feeling the energy here just feels blissful.
But it goes deeper than that. It’s about making a decision about how you’re going to live your life. Are you going to live it being crazy busy or are you going to live it feeling centered and grounded and happy and fulfilled? It truly is a choice that we are making in every moment.
I want to urge you to make a decision to live the life that is centered and grounded. I know that’s easier said than done, but as a recovering Type A personality, I know it’s possible. And I can guarantee you, it’s much more satisfying.
The question is, how do you make that shift? When I came to Sedona for the first time in 1999, I had just started my 20th year of law practice as a divorce attorney and I had 175 active cases. Talk about busy and crazy! It was that time in Sedona that started the process of me changing my life. Leaving my law practice and ultimately founding Sedona Soul Adventures in 2002.
But I had to learn how to be different. It wasn’t something I inherently knew how to do. Working with the practitioners in Sedona changed everything for me.
Could it change everything for you? I know it can. Come to Sedona and find the peace you’re looking for. We’ll help you come into that centered and grounded space and give you the tools to keep on doing that every day after you go home.
How long are you going to wait to have the peace and connection you’re craving? My recommendation is to not wait a minute longer.
Speak with one of our Angel Guides (they are the ones who will custom design your retreat). They’ll custom design a retreat of private one-on-one (or two-on-one if it’s a couples retreat) sessions with the master practitioners of Sedona (we have over 50!) which will take you from where you are to where you want to be.

We still have one space left for the Peru trip – June 17-30

I’m getting so excited about our Peru trip! It’s just a little over month away and it’s going to be so incredible. I’ve talked to so many people lately who have told me that Machu Picchu is on their bucket list. Is it on yours? If so, grab the last space that we have left. You’ll be glad you did!

Experiencing these amazing places, spending 2 weeks with our incredible shaman, Jorge Luis Delgado, traveling with other like-minded adventurers — it’s life changing.
Join me on this amazing journey.

“If you’re looking for deep and meaningful travel that connects you to other amazing people, takes you way behind the scenes and most important, creates the space for a deep dive into yourself, Debra and Sedona Soul Adventures has it down. Had I attempted to navigate my recent trip to Peru on my own, I’m confident I would have only experienced about 30% of the true magic Peru has to offer. Because the trip was so well organized and our guides were so knowledgeable, we experienced things every day that other travelers, lost on their own or stuffed in a tour bus, never got to see or feel. It was the trip of a lifetime and I am grateful and truly transformed.”

Oprah: “I was terrified of not being enough” What hope is there for the rest of us?

I love Oprah. I think Oprah has changed so many things for so many people. When you think of the background she came from — born into a very poor family, was sexually abused as a child — and then realize the heights she has reached and the influence she has had, it’s absolutely amazing.
I especially love that she has made spirituality so accessible to so many people.
So it was stunning to me to read an interview with her recently where she said:
“I was terrified of not being enough. Not being good enough, pretty enough, skinny enough. Trying to find the space of deep pain was harder for me. When I ended the show…for about two years I was completely off-balance”.
When I read that, my first thought was “Oh my gosh, if Oprah feels like that, what hope is there for the rest of us?”
It’s such a lesson, isn’t it? The money, the fame, the awards, the love of millions of fans — none of it was enough to make Oprah feel “enough”. And in the interview she says she knows people thinks she should automatically be happy because of her money. As she said in the interview, “I know a lot of rich people who are not happy.”
The other thing that amazed me was that she said:
“I never went to a therapist, ever. But I had so many therapists sitting in the chair across from me on the show.”
She was in all this pain and she wasn’t getting help for it? Oh my goodness, what is up with that? And she even had Dr. Phil at her disposal!
For me, Oprah’s pain and wounds are most evident in the struggles she’s had with her weight. I know that, like me, Oprah is a big believer in the work of Abraham, because she has interviewed Abraham (as channeled by Esther Hicks) a number of times (you can see the interviews on YouTube). Abraham’s philosophy is that weight (and health and abundance and everything else) is all about how we’re feeling and thinking and flowing our energy and our vibrations. As Abraham says, “It matters not what you eat, what matters is how you think and feel about what you’re eating”
I have such huge compassion for Oprah, because I had those struggles too for so many years. I talk about this in my book, “The Journey To Happy”. I “knew” the principles for many years, but it took me such a long time to finally figure out how to do it. Oprah has had such a public struggle with this and obviously has never been able to come to peace with it. My heart goes out to her.
The good news is that Oprah says that now finally, she feels a sense of “contentment”. She says it didn’t happen until just a few years ago, but how wonderful that it’s finally happened. She says:
“I’ve learned to love the whole of me..I’ve learned to turn off that negative voice in my head that complains about everything…I’ve really found this space within myself where everything is all right”.
That’s so interesting to me because the full title of my book is “The Journey To Happy: How Embracing The Concept Of Nothing Is Wrong Can Transform Your Life”. That really is the key. Finding that place where you really “get it” that nothing is wrong, where you feel that sense of peace and contentment. When that finally happened for me, it changed everything — my work, my relationships, I even dropped 40 pounds without diet or exercise, it just melted off!
So how do you get to that space? It took Oprah many years (according to the interview it didn’t happen until 2013). It took me many years and didn’t happen until I connected with the energy and the practitioners of Sedona back in 1999. How about you? How long are you going to wait to feel content, to feel balanced, to feel peace, to feel happy?
I would invite you to not wait a minute more. Life is too short, life is too precious to not be living it in a happy, joyful, connected way. Come to Sedona and do a Soul Adventure. I promise you, it will change your life.
When you connect with us, you’ll speak with one of our Angel Guides (they are the ones who will custom design your retreat). They’ll engage with you (or both of you, if it’s a couples retreat) and get to the root of what’s holding you back, what’s causing the trouble, what’s giving you pain. Then they’ll custom design a retreat of private one-on-one (or two-on-one if it’s a couples retreat) sessions with the master practitioners of Sedona (we have over 50!) which will take you from where you are to where you want to be. Click here and one of our Angel Guides will call you. Or if you’d prefer, call us toll free at 1-877-204-3664 (US and Canada). For our friends outside the US and Canada call 01 928-204-5988 or click here and one of our Angel Guides will call you. And remember, we’re even here for you on Sunday!
As I say all the time, If you knew what could happen, you’d be contacting us right now!
Wishing you a week filled with feeling like you are more than enough,
Debra

Eileen says her Soul Adventure “changed my life”

“I was at a point in my life where after a few rough years, I simply needed some help, I sought it and found Sedona Soul Adventures. This experience has changed my life, it centered me, allowed me to see the amazing life I already have and appreciate it, it has given me direction and an idea about how I want my future to be. I was extremely impressed and grateful for the customized sessions for my particular needs and the quality of the practitioners and SSA staff. Thank you Sedona Soul Adventures!”

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Before and After [Amazing Pics inside]

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

Last Call for Machu Picchu & Peru June 17-30 — Some irreverent reasons why you should come

Is going to Machu Picchu on your bucket list? If so, I’m putting out the last call for our amazing trip that is June 17-30. Here are just some of the reasons why you should come:
 
 
 
 
1. You aren’t getting any younger. Sorry to be so blunt, but I’m serious. If you want to go to Peru you need to go while you can still do a lot of walking and hiking. This is a very active trip and you need to go while you have the energy and vitality to do it. Climbing the stone walls of Machu Picchu and the beautiful steps of Ollantaytambo are mind blowing and you want to be able to enjoy it.
 
 
 

2. How much longer are you going to put off really living the life you want? So many people have told me that “someday” they are going to take one of my fabulous trips to Egypt or Peru. Guess what? I can guarantee you that none of those people will ever go. Living a fabulous, connected life takes commitment and requires making the decisions necessary to accomplish that. If you want to go to Machu Picchu, you need to do it and make it happen.
 
3. Quit lying to yourself. Quit telling yourself you don’t have the money and you don’t have the time. In my 30+ years of working with people, I have discovered that people find the money for things they really want and they take the time to do the things they really want to do. One of the women who went to Egypt with me a few years ago had just started a new job 2 days earlier when in her meditation she “got it” that she absolutely was supposed to go to Egypt. She literally contacted me the day we were leaving. Her boss understood and gave her permission to go. She came and it was a completely amazing and transformational trip for her and she knows she was an even better and happier worker upon her return. Over the years I’ve also had so many people tell me about money falling out of the sky once they absolutely decided that they were going.
4. You know you need this. If you are feeling the pull to go on this trip, you need to be listening. Spirit is trying to get your attention. I know for me that when I don’t listen to those messages, bad things happen to make me start listening.
 
 
 
And, of course, here are the “normal” reasons why you should go:
1. Our guide and shaman, Jorge Luis Delgado, is the absolute best. One of the most common things my people say is that going to Peru without Jorge would be like not experiencing Peru at all.
2. Peru is considered to be the spiritual center of the planet right now by the Dalai Lama. Need I say more?
 
3. We’ll be at Machu Picchu on the Solstice, doing ceremony.
4. You’ll be experiencing Peru with other like minded seekers. You’ll make friends that last a lifetime and experience these amazing places in a sacred way.
 
 
5. We take care of everything. From the time you land in Peru, you will love how absolutely everything is handled for you — wonderful hotels, fantastic food, all the transportation, you won’t have to think about anything except your own transformations.
6. The price is incredible. For everything that you receive on this trip, the price is amazing. Three flights within Peru, hotels, all transportation, all the amazing places we see, breakfast and dinner each day, admission to all the sites, being with Jorge Luis for 2 weeks, it’s fantastic. Just $5695 per person (double occupancy) – the Single Supplement (your own room) is $950.
7. A life changing journey. So many people over the years have told me the Peru trip changed their lives. Are you ready for a life changing transformation?

Lisa says the Peru trip “was the trip of a lifetime and I am grateful and truly transformed.”

“If you’re looking for deep and meaningful travel that connects you to other amazing people, takes you way behind the scenes and most important, creates the space for a deep dive into yourself, Debra and Sedona Soul Adventures has it down. Had I attempted to navigate my recent trip to Peru on my own, I’m confident I would have only experienced about 30% of the true magic Peru has to offer. Because the trip was so well organized and our guides were so knowledgeable, we experienced things every day that other travelers, lost on their own or stuffed in a tour bus, never got to see or feel. It was the trip of a lifetime and I am grateful and truly transformed.” (That’s Lisa kneeling in the front row)
