Why do 67% of 2nd marriages fail? 74% for 3rd marriages

I think that most people are aware of the statistic that in the US, 50% of marriages fail. What most people don’t realize, is that is the statistic for first marriages.
What’s really astounding is that in the US, 67% of 2nd marriages fail.
When you look at 3rd marriages, it’s a whopping 74%.
Articles about this discuss different reasons, such as it’s difficult to bring together blended families in second marriages, oftentimes there are additional financial burdens because of obligations owed to the first marriage and there’s not the same commitment if you don’t have children together. I agree, those things absolutely contribute, but I don’t think that’s the real reason.
Many of you know that I was a divorce attorney for over 20 years in Omaha, Nebraska. Over that 20 year time period, I had a number of clients for whom I did 3 divorces.
The reasons became very clear to me. The same person (my client) was marrying the same person over and over again, the new spouse just had a different name. They had a different name, but they had the same issues. They were never doing anything to change the dynamic. They were bringing the same issues to each of the marriages, whether it was #1, #2 or #3.
People with abandonment issues kept marrying people who would ultimately abandon them.
Women with demanding, controlling fathers who were emotionally unavailable would marry men who were demanding and controlling and emotionally unavailable.
Men with unloving mothers kept marrying women who they felt just didn’t love them enough.
People who grew up in homes where there was addiction and abuse (alcohol, drugs, physical, emotional) would marry people who were addicted and abusive.
I could go on and on, but you get the picture. If we don’t do anything to deal with the issues, we keep bringing them into the next relationship. And we keep bringing in people who bring those issues up, so that they can be healed.
When two unhealed people come together, the results can be catastrophic and deeply painful. But the really great news about all this is that if you do something to change the dynamic and deal with the issues, you can transform your relationships. How fantastic is that?
For the past 14 years (through Sedona Soul Adventures), I’ve worked to help couples stay together. It’s ironic, isn’t it, that after spending 20 years divorcing people, I’ve now spent 14 years trying to help them heal.
One of the most important parts of what we do with our couples retreats is that we focus on each individual and then we focus on how these 2 individuals come together as a couple. The blocks and gunk and disconnection that are happening for one person are different from the blocks and gunk and disconnection that are happening for the other person. And until you deal with those, you’ve got 2 unhealed people. So in our couples retreats, each individual does their own sessions to deal with their own issues. Then we have them do sessions together, bringing the healing of each individual into their healing as a couple.
The results are astounding. We just had a couple come last month who did their retreat as a last resort. In actuality, the wife had already decided she wanted to end the marriage and was initially planning to come to do an individual retreat. Then she agreed to do the couples retreat, but her plan was to use it to end the marriage in a way where they weren’t hating each other. Instead, after their very first session, all that got completely turned around.
When she did her Emotional Clearing and Repatterning session (separately), she saw how deeply she actually loved her husband and cleared out huge amounts of anger and resentment that she was holding with him.
In his clearing session, he finally dealt with the abuse he had endured as a child. He said, “I realized I was never loved and this made me feel that no one could ever love me”. He saw how he was (unintentionally) pushing his wife away.
They did their first couple’s session together and both of them were more honest with each other than they ever had been. They realized they really loved each other, but they were wary about whether or not it was too late to make it work.
They then did a Soul Healing and a Core Belief Transformation, separately. More gunk was cleared out. They each saw how they had contributed to the problems. They both said they were completely blown away at how much hurt and anguish got washed away in those sessions. He said he left the Soul Healing feeling full of love for himself and his wife. And they each received tools so that they could deal with issues after they got home.
They did an Enneagram session together and realized how their individual types were causing so much friction, especially in their communication. But the best part was, they each learned what the other one needed and they both could really hear it.
The highlight for both of them was their Breath session, which they did separately. Her heart came completely open and she said “I remembered how much I love him and how much I wanted to feel that with him again. I felt such love for him and I realized in that moment that I did want to be with him and make this all work!”
His breath session was equally powerful. After some initial clearing that was very emotional, he said he suddenly saw his inner child and felt like he had had a rebirth. He said, “I saw him smile at me for the first time. All of a sudden he became part of me and I felt full… no longer alone! I felt so peaceful and calm.”
After all that wonderful work, they had a blissful couples massage!
And then on their last day, they did a 4 hour couples session, bringing it all together. Really connecting their hearts and as they said, “marrying their masculine and feminine and making a new commitment to each other and their new life”.
In their final Integration session, they reviewed everything they had learned and committed to using the new tools they had been taught. They said, “Before our Soul Adventure, we were lost and desperate – it was truly a last resort. Our Soul Adventure was 1,000 times more than we thought it would be… Everyone should have a Soul Adventure and every single one of you will be invited to our 25th Wedding Anniversary!”
When their Angel Guide (the person who worked with them and custom designed their retreat) found out what had happened, she wrote me an email that said “Okay now I am just going to go lay down and cry. This IS the MAGIC and POWER of what we do.” Even though we’re used to miracles, when one this big happens, it truly is amazing. And I love it that even after 14 years and all these thousands of people, I still get amazed.
If you’re in a marriage that’s not working, you need to do something about it. And getting a divorce and marrying someone else is NOT the answer. The statistics say it all — you have a much better chance that you’re going to get a divorce the second (or third) time around. It’s not about changing your spouse, it’s about you changing yourself and your spouse changing themselves so that you can have a changed relationship. If you keep on doing the same thing, you’re going to keep on getting the same thing. It’s that simple.
If you’re ready to have things be different, if you’re ready to remember why you fell in love with each other and if you want to feel that way again, please come to Sedona. Connect with us and connect with one of our Angel Guides. They’ll speak with both of you separately and really get at the heart of what’s going on with each of you and with your relationship. The Angel Guide session is for you, there is no cost and no obligation. Many people tell us they feel a lot better just talking with the Angel Guide, because they start to feel like there’s hope.

What happens when you connect with excellence and ignite your Divine spark

I’ve been watching the Olympics this week and I’ve just been struck by what happens when we are in the presence of excellence. It’s just so incredibly inspiring and it just makes us want to connect with that highest part of ourselves and to experience more and more of it. I love that feeling so much, don’t you?
When I was a kid, I did swimming, diving and gymnastics. I was a terrible (slow) swimmer and not very good at gymnastics, but I loved doing both of them. I was pretty good at diving (I was 6th in the state for women’s open diving when I was 12 years old, competing against women who were 18). Doing those three things has given me enough knowledge about them to really know just how absolutely incredible and amazing and unbelievable these young athletes are. Just watching them and experiencing their excellence is awe inspiring.
I especially loved listening to the fantastic gymnast Simone Biles after winning the gold in a team event. She was saying that when you’re doing well, you just want to keep on doing better and better, to keep on pushing the envelope.
And that’s what happens when we connect with excellence. There’s an energy to it, a vibration that leads you to want more and more and to experience a higher and higher vibration.
And understand, I’m talking here about excellence, not perfection. It’s funny, after I wrote that I thought to myself, “what exactly is the difference?”, so I looked up the definitions.
Excellence is defined as “the quality of being outstanding or extremely good.”
Perfection is defined as “the condition, state, or quality of being as free as possible from all flaws or defects.”
Of course, none of us are ever going to reach the state of being completely free from all flaws or defects. It’s not going to happen, and striving for that will drive you crazy and lead to frustration and disappointment.
But we can all strive to be outstanding or extremely good. Striving for that feels uplifting and empowering and even better, feels like it might be possible.
I think one of the reasons we enjoy watching the Olympics (or sports, or concerts, etc.) is because watching another human being achieve a form of excellence connects us with that highest part of ourselves (which is free from flaws or defects). It connects us with that Divine spark that I believe we all have and we feel this sense of recognition. And it can re-ignite that Divine spark, if we allow it.
Have you connected with your Divine spark lately? Or does it feel like it’s all but gone out?
I believe our primary purpose on this planet is to stay in connection with that Divine spark and to do everything we can to have it be bigger and bigger and brighter and brighter. And amazingly, that’s what leads to everything else — happiness, contentment, good relationships, satisfying work, abundance, radiant health, etc., etc.
Do you need to have your spark reignited? Or amped up? That’s what I love about our Sedona Soul Adventures retreats, because that’s exactly what we do. We figure out what’s causing the problems with your spark and then we custom design the perfect retreat so that you not only reconnect with your spark, but it gets turned into a roaring flame. And we give you the tools to keep that flame burning bigger and bigger and brighter and brighter.

For our friends outside the US and Canada call 01 928-204-5988 or click here and one of our Guides will call you. They’ll connect with you (or both of you if it’s a couple) in deep conversation to determine exactly where you are and where you want to be; then they’ll custom design the perfect retreat that will bring you the life or the relationship of your dreams. And remember, we’re even here for you on Sundays.
Wishing you a week filled with excellence,
Debra

Dawn says “before my Soul Adventure I felt out of balance” and now she is more in touch with her “higher self”
“Before my Sedona Soul Adventure, I was feeling out of balance, off track, bombarded with daily routines, unsure of everything… especially myself and my spirituality. I want to THANK you and the practitioners that I worked with during my adventure for the kindness, guidance, and insights that I received.  Most of these experiences were very new for me and, at this time, very necessary in allowing me to become aware of my higher self. These amazing practitioners have shared their wonderful gifts with me and sent me away with a multitude of tools that are helping to guide me successfully along this new path.”

You don’t have to be an SSA grad to come on our next Egypt trip                                      (Feb. 12-26, 2017)
One of our wonderful SSA grads signed up for the Egypt trip this week and she was telling me that her adult son is so jealous that she’s going to Egypt and she was telling him (incorrectly) that he couldn’t go on the trip since he hadn’t done a Soul Adventure. I told her that no, we have lots of people who go on the trips to Egypt and Peru who haven’t done a Sedona Soul Adventures retreat (although we have lots of SSA grads who have gone on the trips). She sent me an email the next day saying her son is going on the trip with her to Egypt! They are both so excited!
So I want to make sure that all of you know you don’t have to be an SSA grad to go on our Sacred Travel trips. There are many people who go on our trips who haven’t done a retreat with us. But it happens a lot that after they talk to people on the trip who have done a retreat, they end up coming to Sedona to do that as well.

I love talking about Egypt!
“My visit to Egypt with Sedona Soul Adventures [Feb, 2016] was absolutely amazing! It was incredible to share this adventure with a group of like-minded people through SSA. I felt safe, secure and taken care of. The Egyptian people were so friendly, warm and welcoming.”

Announcing our most incredible Egypt trip yet! Feb 12-26, 2017

Can you believe it? This next Egypt trip will be my 17th 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. New this year! 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. We’ve added an extra day, but we haven’t raised the price. There’s so much to see and do, but we want people to be relaxed and have a wonderful time. So we went ahead and added an additional day, but the great news is, we haven’t increased the price.
3. The exchange rate is incredible, so shopping will be extraordinary. The exchange rate is an incredible 9 to 1 right now (8.88 specifically, meaning 8.88 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.
4. 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.
5. 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.
6. 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.
7. 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!
8. 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.
9. Being with other like minded seekers adds such a wonderful level to the trip.
10. 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 5 groups since the revolution (the last one in February, 2016) and these 5 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.
The U.S. has not issued any travel advisories for Egypt. 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 the February trip had to say:
“The Return to Egypt February 2016 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 [Feb. 2016]. 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 in Feb. 2016 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.”

Shattering the glass ceiling and raising the vibration of the planet

Whether or not you love Hillary Clinton or hate her, something happened this week that is amazing and wonderful and that we have to stop and take a moment and acknowledge. For the first time, a woman became the Presidential nominee of a major political party in the United States.
This is truly a huge thing for women and girls. To see that this can be done breaks down a gigantic barrier.
But it does something more. This kind of breakthrough, this kind of shattering, has an even deeper impact on the energetic vibration of the planet. This is a type of liberation, a freeing of constricted energy that has the capability of raising the vibration of the entire planet. We all feel the reverberations, whether or not we are consciously aware of it.
This week one of the commentators at the Democratic convention was telling the story that he was talking with his 5 year old daughter and saying “you can be anything you want, you could be President of the United States”. She looked at him and said “that’s for the boys”. Even at 5 years old, even with a father telling her “you can be anything you want to be”, she already knew the constraints that are out there.
There’s something about seeing someone do it, that makes it seem possible. And that can have a huge impact.
When I heard him tell the story about his daughter, it reminded me that growing up in Iowa, it was made clear to me that my No. 1 Job was to find a husband. My mother’s constant mantra was “You are all going to college, the boys are going so they can become doctors and lawyers and the girls are going so they can catch a doctor or lawyer and then be able to carry on a conversation with their college-educated husband”. That sounds so funny in this day and age, but that’s how I was raised.
When I got to college, within 2 weeks I had “caught” one – a pre-law student and we got married the following summer. Looking back, I think I was so programmed, that I unconsciously zeroed in on him with my huge radar. Three years later, Mike was accepted into Georgetown Law School in Washington, D.C. We moved to Washington in 1973 and for the first time I saw women who were going to law school. Not very many of them, but there were some.
Then I got a job working as a secretary for our Congressman from Iowa, Ed Mezvinsky (he is now Chelsea Clinton’s father-in-law). Ed’s Legislative Assistant — Doris — had just graduated from law school and was a practicing attorney.
Growing up in Iowa I had never seen any female attorneys. There certainly weren’t any on TV or in movies. For the first time, it occurred to me that rather than being a secretary, maybe I could be an attorney. I next got a job working for Abe Fortas (the former Supreme Court Justice) and he encouraged me to apply to law school and wrote a fantastic letter of recommendation for me and I got into law school.
I’ll never forget that when I told my mother that I wanted to go to law school, her reaction was “Why?”. I had already ‘caught’ a husband, why would I want to go to law school? My father, on the other hand, was very proud of me and actually a little impressed.
The amount of sexism and sexual harassment I had to endure over the 20 years that I was an attorney was really quite staggering, as I look back on it now. And what’s amazing to me, is that everyone just kind of acted like “that’s the way it is”. I love it so much that even though it still goes on, it’s way better than it used to be.
But I have to say that back when I took my first Women’s Studies class in 1973 if anyone had told me where we would still be today in 2016, I wouldn’t have believed them:
– it’s crazy that women still only make 78¢ on the dollar for what men make for the same work
– it’s unbelievable that there are places in the world where it’s illegal or very much discouraged for girls to go to school
– it’s incomprehensible that girls are still subjected to genital mutilation in some parts of the world
Sexism and misogyny are still alive and well in the world and that’s why this breakthrough is such a big deal and why it’s so important for all of us to acknowledge it and applaud it. I didn’t grow up being told that I could do anything I wanted. Little girls now are being told that and they’ve just seen an example of it. That will have an impact on girls around the world and that is a good thing.
We’ve come a long way. We still have a long way to go. Something good happened for women this week, and I for one want to acknowledge it.
But on an even larger scale, I want ALL of us — male and female — to start living our lives from the standpoint and the knowing that we can be or do or have whatever we want. It took me a long time (and a lot of sessions and a lot of healing) to finally come to the belief and knowing that I don’t have to settle in my life. That it is possible to live the life we want to live.
Do you believe that? Do you believe that you can be or do or have anything you want? If not, why not? What’s holding you back? Did you grow up with parents or other situations that beat you down? Are you living in a situation now that is holding you back?
If so, what are you going to do about it? You have two choices — you can accept it and settle for less than what you want, or you can take action to do something about it. One of those choices can make you happy and content and fulfilled, the other can keep you frustrated, disappointed and feeling hopeless. I invite you to take action, to cast a vote for happiness.
Coming to Sedona for the first time in 1999 set me on the path of starting to live the life I wanted. I was miserable when I came here, I was happy and hopeful when I left 3 days later, and now that’s exactly what happens for people who come here and do a retreat with us. I see it all the time and it is such a joy.
Don’t settle. Do something. Contact us and speak with one of our Angel Guides. They’ll connect with you (or both of you, if it’s a couple), and in that deep conversation, they’ll determine what you need to take you from where you are to where you want to be. Then they’ll custom design the perfect retreat to bring you into the life (or the relationship) of your dreams.

Donna says her Soul Adventure gave her “increased inner strength and a deep understanding of my purpose and power”
“Before my Sedona Soul Adventure, I was filled with doubt about my work,  home, marriage and family. I needed perspective and wanted to know, finally, who I am and why I am here. I returned home with increased inner strength, a profound love for my family, a deep understanding of my purpose and power, and a willingness let go and allow the future to flow through me. As I released resistance to the aspects of myself that I have been denying, even my physical body is changed. It is lighter, more agile. Thank you again from the core of my being.”

Skeptical London Journalist Falls into the Sedona Vortex

I’m continuing to celebrate our 14th Anniversary and it was so much fun to come across this article that was written about us way back in 2004. I stayed in touch with Tessa and it’s so interesting to me that over the years, the “Sedona vibe” continued to stay with her.
It’s so interesting to see what happens when skepticism and doubt confront the magic and beauty of Sedona’s red rock temples.
Good Vibrations by Tessa Boase
“On the road to Sedona I began to feel nervous. After weeks of tentative email correspondence, I was about to meet Debra Stangl, my Angel Guide, who was to take me on a Soul Adventure. This trip to Arizona was initially meant to be a low-key spa break in Phoenix, but at the spa I’d decided I was ready for something a little more life-changing.
Surfing the Net, I’d found out about Sedona, a scenic town, which had been slumbering quietly in obscurity, occasionally featured as the backdrop to Hollywood cowboy films, until 1981. That year, Page Bryant, an American author and psychic, channeled through spirits the information that this small farming settlement was in fact the heart chakra of the planet. So that’s where I was headed, driving through the other-worldly landscape of Arizona in anxious anticipation of a customized, made-to-measure mystical holiday.
Great wind-winnowed rock formations in stark, red sandstone rear up all around Sedona, each with its own distinctive shape and presence. Bryant pinpointed a series of vortexes in the area — the points at which psychic and electromagnetic energies can be channeled for personal and planetary harmony. As word of this got out, the town quickly boomed as a New Age Mecca, attracting four million alternative practitioners, artists and retirees each year.
“Whether you love it or hate it”, says the Rough Guide to the USA, “will probably depend on whether you share their wide-eyed awe for angels, crystals and all matters mystical. “I wasn’t sure if I shared this awe, but I was ready to try something different.
True, the landscape was incredible, I could hardly tear my eyes away from the red rocks as they surged into view, dwarfing all around them. But was it really necessary to rename yourself Starr-Light Taylor (as had the girl at the health-food store check-out) just because you lived in their mystical midst? The New Age theme seemed to be all-pervading. Wherever I looked, crystals or wind chimes hung from every veranda and Perspex fairies peeped out of desert plant borders. By the time I swung into the plush driveway of my Angel Guide, I was uptight and prickly.
‘Hey! Tessa! Welcome!’ cried Debra, spiritualist and escapee from Nebraska’s legal world (Debra was a barrister for 20 years). Like many people in Sedona, she’d come here on holiday and it changed her life.
First stop was a meditation on one of the vortexes, said to have masculine energies. To get to the mediation spot we had to climb, sometimes on hands and knees, up the warm, red sandstone. Close to the summit, Debra and I sat down cross-legged and closed our eyes. “Dear Mother-Father-God”, she began, “thank you so much for this amazing place”…. I was told to imagine a surge of energy entering my feet, moving up my body and out of my head. Yet I had the sensation of a metal skullcap resisting this beam with all its might. The harder I tried, the more capped-in I felt.
Opening Up To Sedona
At last, something like the beam of a torch seemed to shoot out of the top of my head and I felt a sudden lightness of heart. Debra asked me to say what I wanted from my soul adventure and after an embarrassed silence, I muttered, “I want to be more open”.
“Good thing!” she enthused. “When you said that I saw a shaft of white light go right through you. It was really sweet!”
‘Sweet’ wasn’t quite how I’d describe the experience, but it was certainly powerful.
The next day, I had an Inner Journey with Breath and Sound. The aim of the session is to travel deep into your inner being and to heal emotional traumas and hopefully experience an altered state of awareness. I had no idea what to expect but I soon found myself lying on a mat with an eye shield on (to avoid distraction), trance music playing, breathing deeply and waiting for something to happen. Every time my mind wandered, I was told to reign it in with the mantra “I am willing”.
I was willing, but it seemed I wasn’t able. Then, suddenly, I was vividly present in the garden of my childhood home, about seven years old, but shrinking: smaller, smaller still; a toddler, a breastfeeding baby, in the womb…. At the point at which I was born, I realized I was crying, tears blotting my eye mask.
But that wasn’t all. The sides of my neck began to feel stiff, as though I had no neck at all but gills. In a flash I realized I was a snake! I could see myself weaving my belly over the desert floor, flickering my tongue. The vision continued like a speeded-up film as the snake fell into a deep pit and the story cut to a male executive (me, again) in a helicopter, flying over a jungle. The helicopter crashed, the executive burnt to death, and out of his body calmly stepped a young girl. She ran through the forest and joined a circle of dancing women.
After what felt like five minutes, the music stopped and he drew the blinds. He leaned over me avidly. “So? What happened?”, he asked.
I didn’t really want to talk about it; the visions had been too personal, too intense, but I didn’t want to disappoint him, so I told all. Tom said the snake symbolized a connection with the Earth. The executive in the helicopter was the old, corporate me who, three years ago (as I’d told him previously), had broken my back in a riding accident (“You crashed and burned”). A softer, more feminine me emerged, healed by the community.
It was an intriguing interpretation, but more astonishing to me was the news that I’d been deep-breathing for 1-1/2 hours. “Welcome to the Sedona time warp!” laughed David knowingly when I told him about it later (my practitioner for my Intuitive Integration session).
The Inner Journey experience marked a definite watershed in my soul adventure. I felt an expansion of spirit and a relaxing of inhibitions. I also began to understand why the Native Americans held Sedona to be such an intensely sacred place.
Taking It Home
Once my mind had been opened, my soul adventure was over all too quickly for my liking. The final morning was spent walking and meditating with Debra. When I admitted my reluctance to leave, Debra responded by putting something heavy in my hands. It was a large rock crystal. “It was talking to me earlier”, she shrugged. “It said it didn’t belong to me. Now I understand it was meant for you”.
Whether it was the landscape, the crystal, or sitting on top of lots of masculine vortexes, I can’t say; but six months on, I’m still feeling those Sedona good vibrations.”
We were able to figure out a few months ago that over the past 14 years, we’ve helped over 8,000 people transform their lives and their relationships. We didn’t have the correct numbers before, because we’ve changed databases 3 times over the past 14 years, so we always had duplicate numbers. Now we were able to eliminate that and when we discovered it was over 8,000 people, I was stunned. Especially because we only work with individuals and couples, not with groups. But I was mainly humbled, gratified and in such awe that all of that has happened.
14 years ago I came up with our motto, “Transforming Lives One Soul At A Time“, and it’s so amazing to me that this is exactly what’s happened.
Thank you for being a part of this journey, it means so very much to all of us here.
And if you are one of those people who wants to have your life (or your relationship) transformed, please contact us and do something about it right now. Over the years so many people have said to me, “I should have done this years ago”. Don’t wait another minute. We’re here to experience the love and joy and happiness that is our birthright. If that’s not happening for you, come here and do something about it.

Nothing upset me and I knew just what to do

I can hardly believe it – July 4th marked the 14 year anniversary of Sedona Soul Adventures!
When I first came to Sedona in January of 1999, I had no idea of everything that was in store for me and the thousands of people who would come to connect with us. And I never dreamed that the transformations that people would have would be so huge. I mean, I hoped that is what would happen, but it’s even surpassed what I imagined over 14 years ago.
In looking back, I’ve thought about some of the most amazing, poignant and incredible things that have happened over the past 14 years. I’ve asked some of our fabulous past clients for permission to share their stories. And so many people have been so generous. This one is from Susan Perkins and it’s so incredible… Here it is…
“To all who are willing and open to living the best life possible…
My name is Susan Perkins and this is my miracle. A few years ago, I suffered a terrible loss. My relationship of seven years broke apart. It was more than just a relationship because we were best friends, business partners, and of course we owned our home together. That being said, the breakup was devastating because I lost everything at once. I felt my life had been pulled out from underneath me. I went into a full blown depression. I didn’t know that depression could be so paralyzing and my only thoughts were that of suicide because I could not function. I literally felt paralyzed.
The phone rang and it was my dearest friend of 35 years.
She heard my voice and asked “what’s wrong?”.
“Nothing” I said in a weak, pathetic tone. She asked again
“What’s wrong?”.
“Nothing”, I sighed.
She asked a third time
“What’s Wrong?”. “EVERYTHING!!!” I cried.
Immediately without the slightest hesitation she said “Oh My God, we have to get to Sedona! I am going to have someone call you now and do a meditation over the phone. Within the next five minutes there was an angel from Arizona on the line meditating and sending me love in my time of crisis. After talking to Debra, I packed my bags and was on my way.
I have tears streaming down my face as I write this, because Sedona Soul Adventures changed my life forever. We flew into Phoenix and drove up to Sedona at dusk. It was late when we checked into a very charming bed and breakfast. After a good night’s sleep I woke up and looked out the window. I had never seen anything so beautiful as the red rocks of Sedona, Arizona. I remember thinking that it didn’t even look real.
We met Debra on top of a vortex that overlooked all of Sedona. It was breathtaking. We sat down and Debra started a meditation, a prayer to the Universe for me. Tears were rolling down my eyes as I listened to her words. She looked over at me and said my third eye was opening. This was all new to me… vortexes, meditating, third eye, etc… Well I just went with it and thank God I did.
Every session helped my heart and spirit to open up. During one of my clearing sessions, my life was totally transformed. I have told this story a thousand times and I get chill bumps every time I do! I was lying on the table with my eyes closed and an eye pillow over them when all of the sudden I started to see angels and explosions. The way I always describe it is like I was seeing the Big Bang happening. I didn’t know if this was a video on the ceiling or if it was in my head. I raised my hands to touch my eyes and the eye pillow was still over them. I was so excited. It was so beautiful. I kept repeating over and over in my head “I don’t ever want this to stop… I don’t ever want this to stop… I don’t ever want this to stop”.
When the session was over and the eye pillow was removed, everything was different. Everything was lighter and brighter; I had a grin from ear to ear. I was walking on air!! I knew then that this was it. This was how we were supposed to feel; how we were supposed to live. I had goose bumps and tears of joy. I felt the purest most unconditional love I had ever felt in my life. I had no fear; I felt total forgiveness; Nothing upset me and I knew just what to do. The Universe was speaking to me through everything. I mean everything, the wind, the trees, the birds; everything was so alive! I couldn’t wait to get up at 6:00 am to see what miracles life would bring me next.
I had gone from suicidal thoughts and near death to the top of the highest mountains, to the stars, to heaven. I was riding the wave high on life. It really was almost indescribable but let’s just say that my dear friend got me to Sedona Soul Adventures and it truly saved my life. I have never been the same since then.
Two weeks later a group of 24 Soul Adventurers from around the world left for Egypt. It was my great fortune to be able to join the group. I mean, is this a miracle or what? I went from near death to The Great Pyramids. It was out of my wildest dreams and I was having the time of my life! Floating down the Nile and exploring temples, standing next to the Sphinx, please someone pinch me! Ouch I am awake and I mean for the first time in my life I can say I am awake. This was the first time in my life that I was really conscious. Thank you, thank you, thank you Sedona Soul Adventures!!
I now work in the Healing Arts at an integrated wellness center. When you have an experience like that you want to share it with everyone! I could write a book about my experience but this is the condensed version. The story is not even slightly exaggerated as a matter of fact it is under exaggerated. I have been back to Sedona Soul Adventures four times and it is one of my dreams to live there someday!!!”
Susan Perkins
Wow, Susan, that makes tears stream down my face! Stories like this have made the past 14 years so incredibly rewarding.
Come to Sedona and experience for yourself the transformations that thousands of others have experienced over the past 14 years.

What to do when you feel stuck?

Do you sometimes feel stuck? Do you sometimes feel pulled down and held back and limited? I was reminded again this week of one of the most profound stories I have heard over the years.
It’s about a young boy who goes to the circus with his father and he sees a large adult elephant next to a little baby elephant. His father tells him it’s a mother elephant and her baby. Father and son are watching the elephants and the little boy notices that the baby elephant has a huge metal bar around its ankle that is chained to a stake in the ground and from the sound they make, the chains are very heavy. But the Mother elephant had a much smaller, thinner and lighter metal bar around its ankle and the chain attached to the stake in the ground was much smaller than the one that was holding the baby elephant. “Why is that?”, asked the young boy. “Shouldn’t the bigger elephant have a bigger chain?”
His father explained to him that sadly, elephant trainers know that when an elephant is young, if they can chain it so that it can’t escape, after a short period of time, it will give up. It won’t even try anymore. The elephant at some point in its young life begins to believe there is no point in even trying to escape its captivity. Even when the elephant grows to maturity and is huge and massive and could easily remove the chain, it doesn’t even try because it believes it can’t.
Doesn’t that just break your heart on a number of different levels? First of all, the sadness of chaining such a majestic creature and bending it to our will so that it can perform in circuses. But on a deeper level, breaking this creatures’ spirit to the point where it doesn’t even know that another type of existence is possible.
What a lesson for our own lives. What are the beliefs that keep you chained into thinking that your life can’t be different? For so many of us the chains are imaginary. We think we’re bound to the life we’re living, even if it’s making us miserable. We maybe watched our parents have unhappy lives and we tell ourselves that we can’t expect anything different. Or we’re surrounded by people who believe “this is life, this is as good as it gets” and we watch them as the life force slowly drains out of them.
If you’re feeling stuck, do whatever you have to do to pull up that chain! Break those chains that are binding you. Do you hate your job? Do you hate parts of your life? What are you going to do about it?
The one thing I know for sure is that the one thing we can count on in life is change. Everything is changing in every moment, we’re getting older, time is passing, the clock is ticking. We can shift and change things simply by making the decision to do that. I know. I see it happen over and over and over again with the people who come here to do a Sedona Soul Adventures retreat. In many cases they’ve reached the end of their rope and they finally say, “I’m not going to live my life like this anymore”.
That’s exactly what happened for me the first time I came to Sedona in 1999. I was at the end of my rope and every area of my life was messed up — I hated my work, I was 40 pounds overweight, I was in an unhappy marriage and I was $50,000 in debt. I felt like I was completely stuck. I thought I couldn’t leave my work because I was at least supporting myself with it. Two weeks after coming to Sedona, $50,000 dropped out of the sky, 6 months later I left my job, 3 years later I started Sedona Soul Adventures and after moving to Sedona, the 40 pounds melted off and I went from a size 14 to a size 6 and I now eat and drink whatever I want, whenever I want. Seventeen years ago I felt like that elephant (literally when I was 40 pounds overweight!) and I felt completely chained to my unhappy life. What a feeling it is just to know that I’m not that chained up elephant anymore.
We are on this planet to be happy and to live our life purpose. If we are miserable and unhappy, we aren’t living our life purpose.
Want some help in undoing those chains? In moving into the life of bliss and joy that is your birthright? Call and speak with one of our Angel Guides.They are so skilled and gifted at really talking with you and discovering what are the chains that are binding you and what needs to happen to let go of them forever and move into a life of connection and happiness. Call us or Click Here and we’ll call you.
The clock is ticking – if not now, When?
Wishing you a week of breaking free from your chains,
Debra

Dani says that after her “amazing” Soul Adventure she’s been able to let go
“My Sedona Soul Adventure was simply amazing. I learned so much about myself, Why I do things that don’t serve me, and why I must control everything! I learned that I am perfect in my imperfections and I learned that I could let go of all the guilt I had been carrying, and that I don’t need to feel responsible for everyone and everything. After my Soul Adventure I feel like I understand my purpose more than ever. All things happen for a reason and I’m so glad I was called to Sedona! Thank you Soul Adventures!”

The real deal – Jorge Luis Delgado

We just finished our 2 weeks in magical Peru this past Friday and it was absolutely incredible (I hope you were following me day by day on Facebook). One of the things I was struck by was how lucky we are to be able to be with Jorge Luis Delgado, our shaman and guide and how after all this time (10 trips) he really is the real deal. Let me explain:
Debra_Jorge
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Debra and Jorge at Machu Picchu
 
When I decided I wanted to add Peru as another place where we would do Sacred Travel, I did an exploratory trip to Peru in 2004. It was very good, but it wasn’t even close to the trip we do now. The person leading the tour was a very nice man, but he certainly did not have the spiritual authority that I was insisting I wanted to have for our people.
Worse, I began finding out upsetting things about some of the so called “shamans” in Peru. It reminded me of when I started Sedona Soul Adventures. Many healers come to Sedona because it is internationally known as a sacred place and people come here from all over the world. For three years I was coming here to do my own personal healing work (never dreaming that I would start Sedona Soul Adventures one day).
I discovered that just as there are good doctors and bad doctors and good lawyers and bad lawyers there are good healers, mediocre healers and healers who actually do more damage than good. That is one of the reasons that I started Sedona Soul Adventures, is so that everyone who came here would connect only with the most amazing and experienced healers who could truly help them.
Now I found myself in the same situation in my search for a shaman. I discovered (and it broke my heart) to find out that there are lots and lots of people in Peru who call themselves shamans who are a far cry from the kind of spiritual person who I wanted leading my trips. Worse, I discovered that many (not all) had serious drinking and philandering problems. I heard many, many horror stories of women who had gone on a trip who had been approached by a shaman with words like “oh it would be so wonderful for you and I to connect in this special way, but don’t tell anyone else in the group.” Usually, he would be drinking heavily. By the end of the trip, women would start talking and discover that most if not all had experienced the “special connection” with the shaman.
I finally found Jorge through a tour leader who had just retired who had done many trips with Jorge and knew what an amazing person, teacher and leader he is. What a gift! I am forever indebted.
Jorge is the real deal. He not only talks the talk, he walks the talk. He’s also someone who is in the world. He’s married (his wife is an attorney!), he has 3 grown children, he is living every aspect of life, not only the spiritual aspect.
Being in his presence for 2 weeks and absorbing his teachings about love, service and wisdom is truly life changing.
I’m already looking forward to going back next year. If you’d like to join us, make the decision to come on the trip. This year’s trip sold out and, regrettably, there were some people who wanted to come that I had to say no to. I don’t want to say no to you, I want to say yes! So make the decision to join us on the trip – June 17-30, 2017.
We’ll be going to the same magical places — Machu Picchu (for 3 days!), the Sacred Valley, Lake Titicaca (and we’ll do ceremony at the Aramu Muru doorway!), Ollantaytambo and more! Decide now to join us for this trip of a lifetime.

Lisa Sasevich says the trip to Peru was “the trip of a lifetime” and she is “grateful and 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.”

Machu Picchu, love, service and wisdom

We’re right in the middle of our amazing Machu Picchu and Peru trip and it’s been incredible.
1
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Of course, Machu Picchu was absolutely spectacular. To be there on the Solstice is so amazing. We got up before dawn to be there at first light.
2
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
We went to Sacsuayaman where they have the huge stones. We’re doing ceremonies everywhere and it’s so amazing.
3
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
This is one of the special doorways you find everywhere, this one is at Machu Picchu. The Incas believed doorways were portals, so these are very special. We’re setting intentions all over the place!
4
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
But the best part has been being with Jorge Luis Delgado, our shaman and guide. Everywhere we go Jorge is giving us the gift of his teachings. The primary one is the Incan idea that the primary goal of our lives should be how to live our lives in love, service and wisdom. These are the great pillars from which to live our lives. To stay in love all the time can make all the difference in our lives.
And when we are coming from love we are motivated to be of service to others.
And the ultimate pinnacle we can reach in our lives – to obtain true wisdom. Knowing that all is well at all times.
It’s a wonderful way to spend your life!
Wishing you a week filled with love, service and wisdom,
Debra

You only have to do this stuff 51% of the time

This has been a tough week. The shootings in Orlando have cast a long shadow.
One of my coaching clients was really affected by this and she’s also been very bothered lately by the presidential election – the tone and the general negativity.
She said “I’m feeling like the country is going to hell in a hand basket and I don’t want to feel that way. I know that feeling negatively isn’t going to bring me what I want” and what she wants in her life is happiness and purpose and abundance.
I reminded her we can’t all feel fabulous and wonderful and positive all the time. We’d be more like robots if we even tried to do that.
And then I reminded her again about the 51% rule.
Did you know that you just have to get to feeling good 51% of the time to make your life change completely? I’ve been teaching that and coaching that for over 12 years now and it’s one of my favorite concepts.
We all know (or at least I hope you know) that we are all creating our reality in every moment. What we think about, we get more of. What we are excited about, is on its way to us. What we’re worried about or afraid of is on its way to us. Maintaining the high vibration of excited expectation brings us into alignment with the higher vibrations of the things we all want – peace, happiness, love, abundance.
The more that we can maintain a positive attitude, the higher the vibration we’re in.
When we stay in the lower, slower vibrations of fear, worry, upset, frustration, we’re not in alignment with the higher vibrations of what we want and we can’t bring them to us. In fact, it keeps them away!
So the bottom line is – staying happy and positive and in the higher vibrations is going to bring you the peace, happiness, love and abundance that you want.
The problem is, in this day and age that’s hard to do.
Stuff is always happening. Not only big stuff like the shootings in Orlando, but just day to day life can be frustrating and difficult. And then if you have a situation that’s causing you stress (you hate your work, problems in your relationship, health issues, etc.) it’s almost impossible.
I talk about this a lot in my book that’s coming out in a few months, The Journey to Happy, so it’s been on my mind.
And for so long, I was assuming that I had to somehow stay feeling great, joyful, etc. 100% of the time in order to have the things I wanted. Knowing that I was never going to be able to do that just added to my frustration and hopelessness.
And then I figured it out. You just have to maintain at least 51% of feeling good to have your life transform. It’s the tipping point. If you can hold yourself in the place of feeling good at least 51% of the time, your life will start to transform dramatically. And the best part is, the percentages even out — meaning that there will be times you will be feeling at 65%, sometimes even at 85%, so even if you mainly stay in the 51-55%, you will start maintaining that vibration of wonderful, juicy, delicious joy!
Wow, what a weight was lifted from my shoulders!
The trick is to not dip back into the 49% very often. So have an arsenal of things ready to do when you start to feel yourself go into that dip. Things that kind of automatically make you feel good, or at least a little better. That’s all it takes, just feeling a little better. Don’t expect (or demand) that you must go into total bliss and joy, just do something, ANYTHING to make yourself feel a little better.
Here are some things that work for me:
– Writing down a list of things I’m grateful for and thinking about each thing.
– Petting my dog and feeling a huge surge of love for her.
– Listening to certain songs that just always make me feel better. The old Johnny Nash song, “I Can See Clearly Now” does it for me every time.
– If I’m at home, there are certain movies that just crack me up and I’ll put them on and fast forward to the scenes that make me laugh out loud.
– There are some videos on YouTube (usually involving cats or dogs doing something funny) that make me laugh.
– Sometimes meditating (particularly a guided meditation) can make me feel better, but if I find my mind going a mile a minute, I stop the meditation and move onto something else (like music). If it’s not making you feel a little better right away, try something else. That’s why I recommend having an arsenal of different tactics.
– Going outside in the sun and appreciating the beauty of the sun (or the stars) and how incredible and big life is, will sometimes move me to tears.
– Dancing and really moving (I recommend being alone for this!). What does the bumper sticker say? Dance as if no one is watching. That really moves the energy!
Sometimes we need some help to get us out of the space of not feeling good. It’s so amazing what a Sedona Soul Adventures retreat can do. Click Here and let us custom design a retreat that will get you to your 51% and give you the tools to keep you there!
Speak with one of our Angel Guides. They’ll connect with you (or both of you if it’s a couple) and they’ll custom design a retreat that will take you from where you are to where you want to be.

Michele says after her Soul Adventure she is “emotionally healed” and “happy and excited to view life from this new perspective”
“My Sedona Soul Adventure was so much more than I could have hoped for. 
My Soul Adventure was custom made for me and proved incredibly helpful to my spiritual growth. I am now emotionally healed, my energies are balanced, my mind is clear. They also helped me to tear down the thick wall so I could open my heart. Most unexpectedly, I discovered I had newly raised consciousness. I wasn’t expecting that at all but am incredibly happy and excited to view life from this new perspective. I always had a strong spiritual take on life but this was unlike anything I’ve experienced and it’s with me to stay.


I truly can’t wait to return to Sedona and the other adventures they offer around the world. They all sound so seductive to my thirsty soul.”
