You Don’t Have to be “Perfect” All the Time – Here's What to do Instead…

How are your New Year’s resolutions going? If you’re like 82% of Americans, you’ve already broken them, but no worries!

Watch my new video on “How to Use the 51% Rule,” because it’s all about how you don’t have to be “perfect” all the time to have a fabulous, amazing, rewarding life. Isn’t that a relief?

And I think you’ll love the simple things you can do to “stay in the 51%.” Have a listen.

    Today I want to talk to you about the 51% Rule.
    When I first started on my spiritual path, one of the things that I was lucky enough to figure out was what I call, the 51% Rule. Simply stated, the 51% Rule acknowledges that, with all this stuff you’re trying to do and this energy you’re trying to move, if you just stay on the path of your Journey to Happy at least 51% of the time, you’re going to have an amazing, incredible life.
    You don’t have to be perfect. Sometimes you’ll be at 60%, other times at 20% – because you’re human. But, as you learn to stay in the energy of Excited Expectation a majority of the time, you’ll hit the tipping point and be over the edge.
    And when that happens, you’ll have momentum on your side.
    For many people, when they first start out on their spiritual path, sometimes they think, “Oh, this is going to take forever, and I’ll never be able to do all this all the time.”
    And that’s right. You won’t be able to do all this all the time.
    But here’s the good news. So much of all this is about taking yourself off the hook. You don’t have to be perfect all the time.
    And remember, Nothing is Wrong if you aren’t perfect all the time.
    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!
    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. Things that can flip the switch into a better feeling state. 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:

    • What are you grateful for? Writing down a list of things I’m grateful for and thinking about each thing. This is actually one of the Stepping Stones I talk about my the book, keeping a Gratitude Journal.
    • Pet your dog or cat. Petting my dog and feeling a huge surge of love for her always makes me feel great.
    • Listen to music. 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
    • Watch movies (or something else guaranteed to make you laugh). 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.
    • Watch YouTube Videos. There are some videos on YouTube (usually involving babies, cats, or dogs doing something funny) that make me laugh and start to feel better.
    • Meditate. Sometimes meditating (particularly a guided meditation) can make me feel great, 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.
    • Go outside. Going outside in the sunshine and appreciating the beauty of the sun (or the stars) and how incredible and big life is, always helps me.
    • Get moving. 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!

    What are things that work for you? Have an arsenal of things that you can use to keep you in the feel good energy most of the time.
    And remember, take yourself off the hook. You don’t have to be perfect 100% of the time, you just have to get to 51% and stay there most of the time. That’s the Journey to Happy.

    One Thing You Can Do Now Right Now to Get Happy

    Today I want to talk to you about something you can do right now to get happy. It’s very simple, but it’s one of the most effective things I know to get happy and stay happy.

    I’d love to have you try it and let me know how it works for you.

    I hope this helped, and if you got value from this video, please like, share the video and subscribe to our channel.

    I’m talking with you today about One thing you can do right now to get happy.
    In this series of videos, I’m talking about concepts from my book, The Journey to Happy– How Embracing the Concept that Nothing is wrong can transform your life.
    I hope you’ve been following along with these videos about the concept of Nothing is Wrong, because that will make all this make a lot more sense.
    To recap, it’s not what’s happening to us that is causing most of the problems in our lives, it’s our reactions and responses to what’s happening:

    • How we’re thinking about it
    • How we’re talking about it
    • How we’re feeling about it

    What  I’ve found in my own life, and with the thousands of people that we’ve helped through Sedona Soul Adventures, is that the more I drop my resistance, the more I am able to go with the flow, and the more things happen that are almost miraculous.
    It’s a shift out of the energy of “Everything is Wrong” and into the energy of “Nothing is Wrong” that changed everything in my life.
    The question is, how can you do that? How can you flip that switch?
    And the answer is simple: Make the decision.
    Make the decision that Nothing is Wrong.
    Make the decision that you are going to start living your life from this belief and this perspective.
    And I’m going to give you an easy way to implement that decision It’s a process called Change your story, Change your life.
    If you stop thinking and talking about what you don’t want and start focusing and talking about what you do want, the energy shifts and amazing things can happen.
    This is actually one of the Nine Stepping Stones that I give you in The Journey to Happy and I’m giving you the one that you can start using immediately, and that can have the biggest impact right now. Stop talking about what’s wrong. Just stop. And don’t get involved in conversations with other people who are talking about things that are wrong, or that are not okay, or that you don’t like.
    If you do this for a few days and start to notice how much you do it, I think you will be humbled and embarrassed. And then you will start to notice how much other people talk about things that are wrong, but remember, Nothing is Wrong with other people thinking and talking about what’s wrong. It’s a free country, everybody gets to be just as miserable as they want to be. Everybody has a choice.
    And if other people notice that you’re not speaking negatively, don’t tell them what you’re doing. Most people are so attached to their unhappiness, they don’t want to see other people coming out of it, so just keep your new thoughts to yourself. The Bible says that after Jesus did one of his first miracles he told the disciples, “Go and tell no one,” because he knew their faith wasn’t strong enough yet to deal with all the negativity they would receive. Don’t set yourself up for someone overwhelming you with their objections to you getting happy.
    For now, this is your decision and your life – just keep on practicing.
    And if you’re feeling really adventurous, in addition to NOT talking about what’s wrong, you might start actively talking about things that you like or things that you appreciate. There is always something to appreciate, even if it’s just that you’re alive – and how fantastic is it that you’re alive?
    Do this one simple thing and notice how things start to shift as you flip that switch.
    We had a woman who came for a retreat a few years ago and she had had a really difficult life. Both of her parents were physically and emotionally abusive, her father was physically abusive and her mother was emotionally abusive. They had both passed away and she felt that she never really had a chance to confront them about what they did to her. She talked about it all the time. She referred to herself as a victim. When she came to Sedona she was still filled with hate (which was completely understandable), but it was eating her up inside and she knew it.
    We did a number of sessions with her that were designed to move out that old energy and then the most amazing thing happened. In her Inner Breath Journey, both of her parents came to her, one by one. They asked her forgiveness. She cried and cried. She told me, Debra it was definitely them.
    She was flooded with forgiveness and love, and after that, she didn’t even have the desire to talk about it anymore. She got home and she realized that she simply didn’t have this story anymore. She quit talking about it, not because she was stopping herself, but because she just didn’t want to talk about it anymore, it didn’t serve her, it just made her feel bad. She realized that with most of her friends, they were so happy for her and they loved that talking about this negative stuff wasn’t part of the baggage of their friendship anymore. But she had one friend who, after a few months, just vibrated out of her orbit because this person wanted to talk about negative stuff and wanted to talk about her own negative story, and without the stories and without them feeding off each other, they didn’t really have a friendship. She told me awhile ago that she didn’t really realize just how much energy she was losing over this and how Changing her story, stopping the story gave her her life back.

    How to do Ho’oponopono – incredible results!

    Have you ever heard of Ho’oponopono? It is the most incredible process that can yield almost unbelievable results in your life. Watch my short video and see how this simple forgiveness process can change absolutely everything around.
    Try this and if it works for you, let me know – I love hearing those stories!

    This is one of two videos where I’m talking to you about Learning How To Forgive. If you haven’t watched the other one on Radical Forgiveness, be sure to do that.
    One of the hardest things in life is learning how to deal with a situation when someone has hurt you. Especially if it’s someone who you love and care about,` and who you thought loved and cared about you. Like a parent, a spouse, or a friend.
    And it doesn’t even have to be from someone we care about. It happens all time in life, where we feel like we’ve been wronged or someone has done something to mistreat us – like getting into an argument with a neighbor or having a situation with another person that just seems to be something where you can’t get along with this person no matter what you do. And if it’s someone like a fellow employee or your employer, that can be really difficult. Having to be around someone who you constantly seem to have problems with is draining and makes life not fun.
    If that’s your situation, I want to tell you about Ho’oponopono. This is an ancient practice  developed by the kahunas, the spiritual teachers of Hawaii. It’s a very simple practice but it’s incredibly effective. This was popularized by Dr. Hew Len. Dr. Len grew up in Hawaii thinking that all this spiritual stuff was really weird and he didn’t believe it, but then some things happened in his life and he started studying Ho’oponopono.
    Ho’oponopono is very simple. When I tell you this, you’re going to think something like “Debra, that’s ridiculous, that can’t really work”, but just stick with me.
    The Concept of Ho’oponopono is all about consciousness and about taking total responsibility for everything that comes into your consciousness. So, for example, if you have a car accident and you tell me about it, now that it’s come into my conscious awareness it becomes my responsibility. “Now wait a minute, Debra”… I’m sure you’re thinking, “If one of my friends tells me about their car accident, how does that become my responsibility?” Well, it has to do with consciousness and energy, and clearing the energy of things that are not in the highest vibration.
    So again, it’s very simple, with Ho’oponopono, here’s the way it works. You think about the situation and you say either out loud or silently:
    I’m sorry
    Please forgive me
    I love you
    Thank you
    That’s it. You just do that over and over again and watch how things change. Dr. Len’s story is probably the most dramatic about this.
    After he began working with Ho’oponopono, he was asked by the State of Hawaii to work in the Hawaii State Prison for the Criminally Insane. This was a very violent place filled with people who were murderers and rapists, plus they had been found to be insane. Conditions there were terrible – inmates were constantly attacking the staff, employee turnover was constant, the energy was so bad that plants wouldn’t grow, and get a load of this, paint wouldn’t stay on the walls, they would paint the walls and it would peel off.
    They asked Dr. Len to join their staff and he said okay, but he wouldn’t see patients, he wouldn’t do rounds… he just sat in his office with the files of the people in the prison. He would read over what happened, all the murders, the rapes and he would take on full responsibility for everything that had happened. Then he would say:

    I’m sorry
    Please forgive me
    I love you
    Thank you
    Over and over.
    He did this for a few months and everything started to change in the prison, the energy started moving and there was a transformation that started to happen. First, the prisoners became less violent. The attacks on the staff stopped. The prisoners had all been heavily medicated before, they discovered they didn’t need as much medication or with some people, none at all. Plants started growing. The paint started staying on the walls.
    And incredibly within 4 years, the prison was closed down. Many of the prisoners were adjudicated as sane, stood trial and were imprisoned. But a huge majority were healed and released for time served. Within four years, the place was completely emptied of all the negative, horrible energy.
    And the only thing that was different was that Dr. Len was sitting in his office bringing this into his consciousness and saying:
    I’m sorry
    Please forgive me
    I love you
    Thank you
    Over and over.
    We teach this practice in our retreats and we’ve had incredible success with it. We had one woman come on a retreat because she said she was going to leave her husband because he simply would not help her. She had a demanding job, they had 2 kids, and he wouldn’t do anything at all to help her with running the house and taking care of the kids. That led to lots of anger and upset, nagging and disconnection, and finally she’d had it. And he was sick of the nagging and also ready to walk out the door.
    She said she wanted her retreat to focus on getting strong enough to leave. But when she was here, we uncovered that she really did love her husband and she didn’t want to split up her family. We did some clearing sessions with her and taught her Ho’oponopono, including all the underlying dynamics.
    She went home and just kept doing the Ho’oponopono with her husband. She said that 2 days after she got home he started doing the dishes. She hadn’t asked him, he just started doing it. Then he started helping with the cooking, cleaning, and child care. One day he just came in and said, “Is there anything I can do to help you?” and she just about fainted. She started crying and told him what had happened. He told her how much he loved her and that the last thing he wanted was a divorce. That was over a year ago and their marriage has completely turned around.
    We had another person come to us who had a fabulous job – she loved what she did, she made a lot of money and had a lot of freedom, but there was always something going on with her boss. Her boss was always criticizing and always doing things to cause her trouble. He couldn’t fire her, but he was making her life miserable. She came for a retreat and her focus was on “should I leave my job?” We did some other clearing with her and taught her Ho’oponopono. When she got back, her boss said to her, “We missed you”. Suddenly her boss wasn’t just being neutral with her, her boss was being kind and deferential. Six months later she got a huge promotion, largely based on the recommendation of the boss she’d had so much trouble with before she started doing Ho’oponopono.
    Try this for 28 days and see what happens. It works. Don’t tell anyone. Certainly don’t tell the person you’re having the trouble with. Just do it.
    Just think about the situation and say:
    I’m sorry
    Please forgive me
    I love you
    Thank you
    Over and over.
    And the amazing thing is, you don’t even have to actually feel sorry. I did a 5-day workshop with Dr. Len a few years ago and he told us, you don’t even have to feel like you’re sorry. The energy just moves from doing this. And it works with every kind of person and every kind of situation.
    Try it and send me an email to let me know what happened. I love getting stories like that.

    How To Get Everything You Want In 3 Simple Steps!

    We all try to make it so complicated — how to be happy, how to find peace, how to get what we want. The real answer is that it’s simple — it’s not easy, but it is very simple.
    I hope you love this — let me know.

    I hope this helped, and if you got value from this video, please like, share the video and subscribe to our channel.

    Today I’m going to tell you how to get everything you want! Wow! Can you believe it?
    I’m sure you’re thinking, Debra, why haven’t you told us this sooner?
    Well the truth is, I have, but today I’m just saying it flat out.
    The way to get everything you want is to:

    1. Get happy
    2. Stay happy

    And in order to get happy and stay happy…

    1. Don’t think about what you don’t want and don’t talk about what you don’t want

    Ok that’s it. You’re welcome. Class over.
    No, I’m kidding, but it really is that simple and I’m going to give you proof of that in just a second.
    In 2016 I wrote a book that became an International #1 Best Seller, called The Journey To Happy. I’m going to be talking to you in a number of videos about the ideas and processes that I talk about in my book.
    So let’s back up. I’ve told you that the way to get everything you want is to:  

    1. Get happy
    2. Stay happy

    And in order to get happy and stay happy…

    1. Don’t think about what you don’t want and don’t talk about what you don’t want

    Now let me talk about what I’m basing this on. One of the truths that Einstein discovered (and that Quantum Physics continues to prove) is that everything is energy. Even my desk, which feels so stable and strong, is – at its core – just a bunch of particles racing around.
    If everything is energy, (and now we know it is) that means that everything is much more elastic, much more malleable, and much more possible to change than we think it is.
    Through the years, quantum physics has proven, that we are energy, and they’ve proven that putting our attention on something in any way changes it.
    So, if everything is energy and if putting our attention on something in any way changes it, that means we are all creating our reality in every moment.
    What we focus on expands.
    We get more of whatever it is that we think about and talk about.
    That is great news! If you are creating your reality, that means that you can change the parts that you don’t like – the parts that aren’t making you happy.
    If you are willing to take responsibility for creating your reality, then you can take responsibility for creating it the way you want it.
    The final piece has to do with energy and vibration. Think of it this way. The things that you want – happiness, peace, joy, great relationships – all reside in the higher vibrational energies. Joy, peace and happiness are all much higher vibrations than depression, fear and blame. When you are a vibrational match to what you want, it comes to you. That’s what many people refer to as the Law of Attraction.
    So the way to get everything you want, is to get in the higher vibrations and stay there, and allow it all to come to you. In other words:

    1. Get happy
    2. Stay happy

    And in order to get happy and stay happy…

    1. Don’t think about what you don’t want and don’t talk about what you don’t want

    The fastest way to get happy and stay happy is to stop focusing on what you don’t want and start focusing on what you do want. Remember, what we focus on expands. This is simple, but it’s not easy. Stop talking about things you don’t like. As they say, change your story, change your life. Stay focused on what you want and let the magic happen, because when it starts happening it feels like magic.
    When I came to Sedona for the first time in 1999, my life was not the way I wanted it to be; every part was messed up. I hated my work as a divorce attorney, I was in an unhappy marriage, I was 40 pounds overweight, and I was $50,000 in debt.
    All I could think about was the mess I was in. I kept thinking about it obsessively all the time and it just kept getting worse and worse, and I kept getting more and more unhappy. I came to Sedona for what I thought was going to be 3 days of just being quiet, but instead, I did one session with a practitioner here, Ranjita, who is still one of our most wonderful practitioners.
    In that session, my high self appeared to me and told me I had to leave my law practice or I was going to die. I got the message and went home, and after 2 weeks of trying to figure out how I was possibly going to leave my law practice when I was $50,000 in debt, there was a day where I just gave up. I was meditating and praying, and I just felt all the worry and concern just lift off me. I remember saying, “ok God, I’m going to do this. I don’t know how I’m going to do this, but I’m going to do it, and I need some help.”
    Within about 8 hours, a former client called asking me some questions and at the end of the call told me he had just bought a new business refinancing mortgages. I asked him if he thought he could get my mortgage payment reduced. He took my address and called me back in 10 minutes and said “I can get your mortgage payment cut in half and I can get you $50,000 in cash.” Now, I had never told him I was $50,000 in debt. He certainly didn’t know about my going into that high vibrational state where I just released the worry and concern. But suddenly, within a few hours, the worry and concern that had haunted me for 5 years was gone.
    The trick is getting there and staying there. And over the course of these videos, I’ll be talking about lots of different ways to do that, but the key is all in these three simple steps:

    1. Get happy
    2. Stay happy

    And in order to get happy and stay happy…

    1. Don’t think about what you don’t want and don’t talk about what you don’t want

    We see this all the time with our retreats here in Sedona. Just a few months ago we had someone come to us who was just very dissatisfied with her life. She had a pretty good job, but there were things she didn’t like about it, there were things she didn’t like about her husband, her kids were grown and gone, and she just felt all this dissatisfaction.
    We uncovered that from her childhood, she had some worthiness issues, meaning she felt like she wasn’t worthy to be happy. We cleared out those blocks and once those were cleared, the most amazing thing happened. When she did her Breath journey session, she got it that she was focusing on the negative and not at all on the positive. With her practitioner guiding her, she did a complete turn around.
    She went home and started focusing on what she liked about her life, her job, her husband, her kids, and everything else in her life, and she discovered how truly blessed she was. She stopped talking about what she didn’t like and just kept talking about the things she liked, and it changed everything around. She wrote me a few weeks ago and said, “It’s the most incredible thing. Nothing on the outside has changed, but suddenly I love my life, every single part of it.”
    That’s what can happen when you make the decision to get happy and stay happy.

    How To Stop Feeling Stuck

    One of the worst feelings in the world is feeling like you’re stuck — especially if you’re feeling that way about more than one area of your life. And have you noticed how it seems to happen like that? We don’t get stuck in just one place – once it happens, it seems to affect almost everything.
    I hope this video helps. Watch now:

    Sometimes in life, things just seem to get stuck.
    Money
    Relationships
    Health
    Career
    Business
    And we normally find that when one area is stuck, there are other areas that are stuck or dragging slowly too – have you noticed that?
    If this is something you’ve been feeling, here are some possible reasons why…
    So many people feel just dragged down from life, the day to day of just getting through can sometimes just be overwhelming.
    You’re not living your life purpose and maybe you don’t know what it is – maybe you’re telling yourself you can’t have the life you want.
    Are any of these true for you?
    You see, when we look a little deeper, we uncover what’s really going on and then when you go deeper still, you see the compound affects showing up in many areas of your life.
    When I came to Sedona for the first time in 1999, I felt completely stuck.

    • I had just started my 20th year as a divorce attorney and I absolutely hated it
    • I was in an unhappy marriage
    • I was $50,000 in debt because of some poor business decisions that had been made
    • I weighed 40 or 50 more pounds than I weigh now

    I felt completely stuck in every part of my life. I came to Sedona for 3 days and  it completely changed my life… and 3 years later, I started Sedona Soul Adventures.
    So what can YOU do right now to begin to stop feeling stuck?

    1. Take some kind of action anything, moving your body, anything.
    2. Get an idea of what you want. Follow your excitement. Look at and choose one thing that you could do, starting today.
    3. Read some inspirational books and biographies of people who have inspired you.

    These are great places to start and as you work through these, you’ll begin to uncover other ways to help you find your way and get out of being stuck.

    How To Overcome A Lack of Self Love

    In today’s video, I’m talking with you about “How To Overcome A Lack of Self Love.” It’s so interesting to me, for almost all of the (almost) 9,000 people who have come to us over the years, lack of self love is at the root of almost everyone’s problems.
    One of my favorite parts of this video is the quote from the Buddha:
    “You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire Universe, deserve your love and affection.”
    If you don’t totally believe that, please watch the video.
    I hope it helps.

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

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

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

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

    If you don’t love yourself, that’s going to sabotage every area of your life.
    We had a woman here a few months ago who had been placed for adoption when she was born – her mother was a drug user and she was taken away at birth. She had this very deep sense of, “what’s wrong with me that even my own mother didn’t want me?” And of course that wasn’t true, her mother knew she couldn’t care for her properly. But then she was adopted by two parents who were constantly upset with her that she wasn’t doing well enough in school, they criticized her constantly, all she ever heard was that she wasn’t good enough. She got married very young to get out of the house, married a man who mistreated her (because if you don’t love yourself, you can’t bring in someone who’s truly going to love you) and got divorced at a young age when the abuse got too bad. By the time she came to us, all the areas of her life were messed up — she was in another bad relationship, she hated her work, she hated her body.
    So what can YOU do to begin to start loving yourself just a little bit?
    Take yourself off the hook – look around, are you really that much worse than anyone else?
    Stop comparing yourself to everyone else, that’s a recipe for disaster.
    Start noticing your self talk and the way you talk to yourself. Think about it. You probably speak more kindly to your dog or your cat than you do to yourself.
    As the Buddha said, “You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire Universe, deserve your love and affection.”
    Are you going to argue with Buddha?
    These are great places to start, and as you work through these, you’ll begin to uncover other ways to help you find your way and overcome the lack of self-love.

    “I’m More Spiritual Than You Are” [Very Funny Video]

    We all need to poke fun at ourselves sometimes. If you’ve been around spirituality for very long, you’ve seen it. The people who want you to know just how spiritual they are by making you feel you’re somehow, not as spiritual as they are. Which, of course, means they’re not being spiritual at all!
    It’s not a contest! The minute you start judging other people, that’s when you know for sure, that something isn’t right.
    J.P. Sears really captures this in his “How To Be Ultra Spiritual” video.
    One of my friends sent this to me this week and I couldn’t stop laughing because it’s so true! Here are some of my favorites:

    “Judging other people to be less spiritual than you, makes you a better person than them, and that’s exactly what makes you more spiritual than them.”

    “Reclassify all the ways you’re being irresponsible by saying ‘I’m a free spirit.’”

    “Deny Your Pain – ‘You’ve been sleeping with my best friend? Oh no, I’m not hurt, it’s all part of the perfection.’”

    But my special favorite is, “Use an exaggeratedly light tone of voice when you are talking with other Ultra Spiritual people. It’s like showing your ID to get into a bar – it proves that you belong.” What’s up with that? I’ve never been able to get away with that – wearing long, flowing skirts and speaking in a breathy voice and saying “It’s so beautiful” all the time. I’ve just always been a little too loud, and I’ve never been tall and thin enough to pull off the long skirts. I guess it means I’m just not Ultra Spiritual!
    And I have to admit that I do one of the things he talks about… I talk about energy all the time! Sorry!
    I hope you enjoy the video as much a I do, and I hope you “get” the point of the video. There’s Fake Spirituality and then there’s the Real stuff.
    By the Real stuff, I mean living your life connected to the highest part of yourself and in connection with the Divine. I mean being happy and feeling like your life has purpose and meaning. I mean feeling peace and joy, and occasionally, some bliss. I didn’t feel that way for so many years of my life; instead I felt unhappy, dissatisfied, disconnected, and stuck. J.P. might make fun of me for this (comparing the Fake stuff to the Real Stuff), but adding this element (the Real stuff) to my life has made all the difference.
    If you’d like some of the Real stuff, please connect with us. Coming to Sedona 19 years ago is what changed everything for me — maybe it will change everything for you.

    “I was skeptical and nervous at first, wondering if I was making the right choice or not. My life was falling apart, I was lost, scared, confused, and just ready to give up until I went on my Soul Adventure. Everyone there is just totally incredible.  Everything they taught me I have been able to bring home and use in my daily life and I am feeling stronger and stronger. I truly believe that had I not taken this time for myself and taken my “Soul Adventure” I would not be here today. How can I ever thank all of you for what you have given me.”                ~ Lisa R., Provo, Utah

    The spirit of Christmas is giving, miracles and magic.
    Yet, it seems we forget that blessings and unexplained synchronicities can happen the rest of the year. Maybe a series of bad things happen. You lose your job. A relative gets ill. Your relationship is on the rocks. There are too many bills and not enough money to pay them. Negative thinking creeps in. Scarcity and fear become your focus. And before you know it, you are spending all of your time dwelling on what is wrong and whining and complaining to others.
    Many of you have likely heard of the Law of Attraction – a concept based on the idea that everything is energy, vibrating at different frequencies. Like attracts like. Therefore, what you put out into the world will come back to you. What you believe you deserve and what you expect, you get. When you change your thoughts, you change your reality – and open up a whole new realm of possibility.
    Studies also show negative thoughts and constant woe is me thinking lowers your energy level. Limiting beliefs, self-destructive behaviors and shaming attitudes lower your vibration even further. The lower your vibration goes, the less energy you have, and the worse you feel both physically and emotionally.
    Here are some simple ways to open your heart and mind to the abundance of the Universe and the joy you long for:
    • Keep a gratitude journal
    • Live your life with purpose
    • Surround yourself with like-minded people
    • Visualize what you want to create
    • Celebrate simple pleasures
    • Don’t place limitations on yourself
    • Dare to let life be great
    • Trust that happiness can happen – and last
    • Live the life you want for yourself, not the life others want for you
    Raising your vibration moves you closer to who you really are. If you believe you deserve to have good things happen in your life, they will. Maintaining a positive attitude – and positive thoughts – is the key to manifesting the life of your dreams and giving you the momentum to make it happen. Daydream about what it looks like and believe you are worthy enough to receive it, and the right relationship, the right boss, or whatever you are hoping, for will come.
    Often, when you’re consumed with worry, the real issue is with your neglected spiritual growth. A spiritual healing, removing energy blocks, or freeing yourself from old wounds may be necessary to reconnect with your true, childlike essence, and to believe you have the power to change your circumstances.

    Life Transformation

    Personal Growth

    Complacency can become dangerous as it breeds the notion that we no longer need to grow. Personal growth is vital for us to live a healthy and meaningful life. The lack of change can lead to dissatisfaction as we are bound to get stuck in a certain way, perception or even environment.

    How To Achieve Life Transformation

    Life transformation does not simply happen out of nowhere. It is comprised of continuous effort and internal motivation in order to achieve self development. Most of the time, the problem is not that we do not want personal growth, the problem is typically knowing how or where to start. Here are some steps that can help you achieve life transformation:

         1.    Asses the past but have a vision of what you want your future to be.

    Most people go through life caught up in the routine and mostly sleepwalking their entire lives. Refusal to exert effort in understanding your purpose can leave you feeling empty and frustrated. Connect with your inner self and know what you want. Be specific with how your future should be. You’ll be surprised that circumstances will usually unfold according to your vision of the future.

         2.    Express your envisioned future.

    Whether it’s a change in career, reinvention of self, change of location or even moving on from a failed relationship, expressing it starts the process of leading you to the change you are seeking. Write it, sing it, talk about it, create a painting or drawing about it, just express this desire in the way that feels most real for you. Let the Universe know that you want it and that you are ready to go through this life transformation.

         3.    Plan your steps to achieve it.

    Changes do not happen overnight, it is a result of a series of events and circumstances brought by our choices.  Evaluating what you need to change and dealing with issues that are holding you back can lead you to your envisioned future.

    Spiritual Retreats For Life Transformation

    Reconnecting with your inner self is a crucial step in life transformation. It will be impossible to envision a future if you don’t know who you are and what you want. Personal growth and self development are results of experience and understanding of oneself. Spiritual retreats are great opportunities to explore your soul and provide clarity of your purpose. Sedona Soul Adventures has helped thousands of people achieve life transformation through their customized spiritual retreats. These spiritual retreats not only help you get reconnected with your inner soul but can also help you achieve personal growth and self development. To know more details about customized spiritual retreats, call 877-204-3664 or visit Sedona Soul Adventures website.
