We’ve just reached over 700 reviews on Trustpilot!

We hit a milestone this week – we hit over 700 reviews on Trustpilot, for a total rating of 4.9 stars (out of 5)! Wow! And I wish I would have started using Trustpilot years ago, because we’ve only been using their service for a few years and already we’ve received all of these incredible reviews.

Trustpilot is a 3rd-party review service, meaning they verify that anyone who writes a review is actually a client and in this case, actually did a Soul Adventures retreat with us. If a company isn’t using a 3rd party service, they’re probably just making up the reviews they have on their website.

Here are our most recent reviews:

Oh gosh, Heather, you’re so right, the world would be a much better place if everyone could experience the letting go that you did!

Isn’t this so cool? Tracy came to us sad, broken, depressed and a mess, she came out happy, hopeful and calmer, with her trauma gone. Isn’t that so wonderful?

I love this so much! Eight days of amazingness!!

And of course, I have such a soft spot for the Couples work that we do. To have a Couples Retreat that is totally life-changing? How fabulous for both of them.

Do you have enough amazing in your life? 

Do you have enough amazing in your relationship?

If not, it’s time to do a Soul Adventure. Call us and speak with one of our Soul Guides. They’ll connect with you (or both of you for a Couples Retreat) and start the process of bringing you into the life and relationship of your dreams.

Egypt trip 2 - 2

Just a few spots left for our “Return To Egypt” Tour March 9-22

Camel.pyramid

I’m getting so excited for our Egypt trip! We have just a few more spots available, so if Egypt is on your bucket list, now is the time to decide to go.

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

We go to all the must-see places:

egypt-columns-night
  • The Great Pyramid (where we’ll have 2 hours of private time for ceremony just for our group)
  • The Sphinx
  • Karnak
  • Luxor
  • Abu Simbel

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

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

And this year we have special tickets to see:

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

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

Ceremony-Pyramid-w_-Mike-1024x768

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

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

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

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

The other thing that is so cool about that picture is that the woman on the right, Alice, did a Soul Adventure with us a number of years ago. She was working in the corporate world then and after her Soul Adventure and going to Egypt, she “got it” that she needed to be living her life purpose. She became a coach and now she is one of our new Sedona Soul Adventures Soul Coaches, isn’t that incredible? You never know what’s going to happen with the connections you make on these trips!

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

Will you be getting this from your beloved on Valentine’s Day?

What do you think you’re getting from your beloved for Valentine’s Day? What are you giving your beloved?

I made this video a while back and it’s turned out to be one of the most popular of my videos on YouTube.

Watch this to see what I think is the most important thing you can give them.

Josh and Jen say their Couples Retreat was “the most amazing experience we have had in our lives” and “We feel like we are on fire!”

“This was probably the most amazing experience we have had in our lives and definitely as a couple. We came out of the adventure much closer and with a renewed sense of direction. We feel like we are on fire! We are ready to go out into the world and live our lives with joy and purpose! We want to make the most of our human experience and use our close partnership to support each other’s life purposes. Our lives have changed forever because of our Soul Adventure and it was just the boost we needed to grow in marriage and in life. We have a whole new perspective on our lives and we can truly see the endless possibilities now. We both feel so blessed that we were able to experience this adventure together and we will most definitely return to discover even more about our true selves as we travel along this path. Thanks to everyone at Sedona Soul Adventures who made this experience possible. We wish for everyone to receive the love and joy that they have given us.”

Last Chance to Join our Breathwork Training starting February 20 (it includes a 6-day retreat in Sedona February 20-25!)

debra-chakras

The breathwork process is part art, part science, and all magic! And the key to unlocking all of that magic is not just learning the technique of the breathwork modality, but even more importantly, the ability of the facilitator to create and hold a big, clear, high vibrational space. It is in that space that profound, multi-dimensional miracles of healing and transformation can happen.

The response has been incredible and so many people are very SERIOUS about learning how to do this amazing work and to make their lives richer and fuller in multi-dimensional ways.

Here are the FULL Details for the SSA Inner Journey Breathwork Training…

Happy Valentine’s Day! The day of love and lovers. 

happy valentines day

On this special day, I want to tell you about something I’ve come to believe, just in the past year, about relationships. It’s something that seems like I should have known this all along and when you hear it, you’re probably going to say something like, “Well, of course, Debra, everybody knows that.” 

But just stay with me for a moment because I think you might be surprised to find out that what I think the #1 thing that you either have or don’t have in your relationship, that either makes it or breaks it and that is…

Are you nurturing each other?
Does your beloved nurture you?
And are you nurturing your beloved? 

It seems like a simple question, but it’s not at all. Because it’s about a way of being. It’s a decision you’re making, in every moment.  

Do you truly want to nurture your beloved?  

Do you want to nurture them in the way they want to be nurtured? 

love-crazy

Or are you constantly picking at them, criticizing them and thinking nasty thoughts about them?

As most of you know, I was a divorce attorney for over 20 years and now I’ve done couples work in Sedona for almost 20 years. It appears to me that relationships are either mainly in the “I love you” zone or the “You drive me crazy” zone. And it seems like once you’ve rounded the corner into the “you drive me crazy” zone, there’s not much going back unless you really do something about it.

couple avoiding

There are basic problems that seem to show up a lot when the nurturing factor isn’t there. And in my experience, there are things that seem unique to women and unique to men. This is also borne out in John Grey’s Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus series of books (so please don’t write me that I’m stereotyping — I’ve watched this for almost 40 years!). 

mars and venus

If you’re a woman, do you: 

  • Complain a lot to your partner? 
  • Complain about your partner to other people?
  • Have you taken everything over because he won’t do the stuff you want him to do, in the way you want him to do it? 
tune out

If you’re a man: 

  • Are you engaging emotionally with your partner? 
  • Are you able to just sit and listen to your partner or do you always give advice, even when it’s not asked for?
  • Are there times when you simply tune your partner out? 

These are all danger signs. Big signals telling you, “STOP! You’ve got to do something here.”

If you’re a woman, stop complaining and stop doing everything because he’s not doing it right.

i want to nurture

If you’re a man, start listening and start really engaging emotionally with her.  

The biggest thing, is that you both have to make this basic decision: “I love this person and I want to nurture them.”  

So many books and articles say that communication is the most important thing in a relationship and of course, communication is extremely important, but think about it…

communication

Deciding to truly nurture your partner is at another layer below communication and everything else. If you are in nurturing mode, your communication will always be wonderful, the way you treat them will always be wonderful, and you’ll be having the perfect amount of sex and time together, because it will be based on each of you nurturing the other. 

nurture your partner

If you’re finding that you’re out of the nurturing zone, you can recognize that and you can do something about it. You literally can shift everything around by making this simple decision:

I want to nurture this person and I’m going to figure out how to do that.

drop resentments

It takes 

  • Willingness 
  • Dropping your resentments about what’s happened in the past 
  • Coming back into loving connection 

Now I know, doing these things is easier said than done. Letting go of past resentments is usually pretty difficult for both parties and that’s usually what’s holding one or both of you back from really getting into and staying in the nurturing zone.  

Or maybe you don’t have clarity about what you truly want. It’s hard to go out of your way to do something for the other person when you’re maybe not 100% sure that you want to be with them. 

happy couple sunset

Let us help you get back into the nurturing zone. Come to Sedona and do a Couples Retreat. Give it to yourselves as a Valentine’s Day present. Wouldn’t that be the most amazing present you’ve ever had? Coming back into the love and connection that brought you together in the first place? 

Call us and connect with one of our Angel Guides. They’ll connect with both of you separately and really dig deep to discover what’s keeping you out of the nurturing zone. Then they’ll put together a retreat that’s custom designed for exactly what you need and want, to bring you back into the love and connection and sizzle that you crave, giving you tools to stay in the nurturing zone forever.

Or even better, if you’d like to talk to someone about doing a retreat that’s custom designed for you call us today at (928) 204-5988.

“I was fighting a battle of fear…”

I received the most beautiful message from someone who did a Soul Adventure with us earlier this month.

Teresa told me her Soul Adventure changed her life and she wrote to me, “Thank you for your vision and putting this Soul Adventure program together. Your life will definitely be a legacy.”

One of the powerful things we do is to have people write a postcard to themselves which we then send to them so when they get home, they’re reminded again of what happened.

Teresa wrote:

Before My Soul Adventure I Was:

  • Fighting a battle of fear
  • Low Self Worth
  • No Confidence
  • Chronic Pain
  • Lowe Energy

After My Soul Adventure I Am:

  • Strong
  • Confident
  • I found my voice
  • I am no longer fearful to use my voice
  • I have found a way to assist myself with pain naturally
  • I am protected
  • I am loved
  • I am strong

Oh Teresa, that just brought tears to my eyes. It’s so interesting because when people come to us telling us that they are in pain, we always tell them that we aren’t doctors, we don’t have doctors on staff, and so dealing directly with physical issues is something we don’t do. But I know in my own life, that there is always an underlying emotional and spiritual aspect and that if those can be dealt with, it’s amazing what happens.

For most of us, our pain is really about our emotional and spiritual pain. For Teresa, it was her fear. And now she doesn’t feel fearful, she feels strong and confident and whole. What a beautiful transformation!

Using Gratitude to Bring in Everything You Want in Your Life

Thanksgiving is this week and it’s such an important time, because it (hopefully) has everyone focused on giving thanks, i.e., on being grateful for what we have.
 
Find out how you can utilize the Gateway of Gratitude to bring in everything that you want in your life.
 
I hope this helped, and if you got value from this video, please like, share the video and subscribe to our channel.

Why is Gratitude so powerful?
Gratitude brings us into a higher energetic vibration.
When we are feeling negative emotions – anger, frustration, jealousy – we are vibrating at a much lower frequency and worse, we are attracting to ourselves exactly what we don’t want and bringing in more and more of it. Experiencing true gratitude is one of the easiest and fastest ways to bring yourself back into a higher and faster energetic vibration that will then attract everything you DO want into your life. This is what I call the Gateway of Gratitude — the process of utilizing Gratitude as a doorway or portal to bring yourself into alignment with what you want:

 

 

  • Love
  • Abundance
  • Vibrant Health
  • Spiritual Connection

What do you want? Do you want your relationship to be more loving, more expansive, more fulfilling? Do you have a situation with a friend, a co-worker or a mate that is causing you to stay in disconnection? Are you having a health challenge?
Use the Gateway of Gratitude to change it around and to bring in exactly what you want. More love, more abundance, a healthy body. This simple process can literally work miracles in your life!
Here’s the process:
For the next 30 days, take 3 minutes (that’s all!) each morning and write 5 things that you are truly grateful for about the person or the situation. For example, if you are having difficulties in your relationship, write 5 things you truly appreciate about the other person. It must be things that are true for you. So, if it’s something about your mate it could be:

  1. I love his/her beautiful blue eyes.
  2. I love that he/she likes dogs.
  3. I love that he/she is good at his job.
  4. I love that he has things that he enjoys, like baseball.
  5. I love that he/she loves our children.

You can also write about things in your life that you are grateful for. The easiest way into the Gateway of Gratitude is to be thankful for what you already have, for what is. And there are many, many things in your life to be grateful for: the sun is shining, the earth is spinning on its axis, you are alive, you are breathing.

After you have written down your 5 things, take just a moment to close your eyes, take a deep breath and truly FEEL the gratitude for this person or situation. The more you can infuse emotion into the process, the faster you will move into the Gateway of Gratitude. If you find you can’t muster the feeling, it’s okay, just breathe and let it go. As you move more and more into the process, it will start to come. Don’t force it.

You can repeat things you have written again, especially towards the end of the 30 days. Just make sure you are writing things you truly believe.

Don’t tell the other person (or anyone else for that matter) that you are doing this. The magic lies in what you will start to see happening in just a short time — as little as 3 days!

To begin, get yourself a little spiral notebook, a new one that you can pick up for 50¢ at Walgreens. Of course, you can get a fancy journal, but all you need is a new book for this new life you are creating. I prefer a small spiral notebook because you can easily carry it around with you and write down more “Attitudes of Gratitude” as you think of them during the day. It’s also wonderful throughout the process to go back and read what you have written in the prior days and to watch how your Gratitude and appreciation continue to deepen.

There also seems to be something more powerful about actually writing the “High 5” in your own handwriting, rather than typing it on a computer. You are infusing your own self, your own energy into the process.

The key is consistency. Go into the Gateway of Gratitude every single day for 30 days with no interruption. Taking only 3 minutes is a good way to get yourself to do it every day, so that you are not spending a lot of time.
When you have another issue that comes up, start another 30 day process. Or better still, use the process consistently each day to bring yourself into connection.

I have used this process in my own life and with my coaching clients for years. My favorite results (and the most typical) are when my client will say something like, “It’s so amazing. My husband has suddenly become so much more loving. Nothing has changed, except that I’ve been doing this process.”

I had a coaching client a few years ago who contacted me because she knew I had Sedona Soul Adventures and she knew I had been a divorce attorney for 20 years, and she wanted me to coach her through her divorce. We started the coaching with me asking her why she wanted a divorce. Everything she was telling me seemed rather minor, certainly not enough to break up a family over. I started talking to her about the things she actually like about her husband. I had her start a Gratitude Journal that day.

What had started out as a 2 year divorce coaching process (because that’s how long her lawyer told her it was going to take) ended in 60 days. She started the Gratitude journal about her husband and everything switched around – her husband became more loving, more attentive, more caring, they started having great sex again…everything switched around and that was over 5 years ago.

We use this with people in our retreats here in Sedona and I have seen people change relationships, heal their bodies, create more abundance, create better relationships with their children – every area of your life can be transformed using this simple, but powerful process.

 

I hope this video makes you feel a little happier and if it did, please like, share the video with your friends and subscribe to our channel.

Discovering and Releasing these Patterns can change your life

I first did the process that I’m giving you today many, many years ago and it was one of the most impactful processes I’ve ever done. It’s all about patterns. 

Do you ever find yourself saying “why in the world did I do that?” Or have you looked back over your life and noticed that you seem to do the same things over and over again, making some bad choices over and over again?

It might be because of patterns in your life that you aren’t even consciously aware of. Watch my video and do the process that I talk about – it’s one of the processes from my book, The Journey To Happy – How Embracing The Concept That Nothing Is Wrong Can Transform Your Life. It was a life-changing process for me – it just might be for you too.

And if you find you have some unconscious patterns that are holding you back, connect with us and let us help you with that. Click below to speak with one of our Retreat Soul Guides:

Or if you’d prefer, call us at (928) 204-5988 or click here and one of our Soul Guides will call you.

They’ll connect with you (or both of you, if it’s a couples retreat) in deep conversation. Then they’ll custom design the perfect retreat for you, working with our Master Practitioners here in beautiful, mystical Sedona.

Sadia says her Soul Adventure released “negativity in my life” and “patterns I was not recognzing” –– “I truly came out of this Soul Adventure feeling more grounded and confident”

One of our SSA grads has written a new memoir (coupon below)

I am proud to announce that one of our amazing “grads,” Linda Gunter, has written a new memoir. 

I asked Linda if she would write a little bit about herself and the book:

shattered illusionsPart memoir, Linda Gunter’s journey focused on personal growth. The book begins when she volunteered after Hurricane Katrina, in a disaster relief kitchen in St. Bernard Parish, LA. This experience causes her to question her traditional career path and awakened a desire to live a more meaningful life. 

The author based many life-changing decisions on her intuition; she leaves a government job and moves from DC to Seagrove, NC. She decides to convert her new home (a former Mill) into a B&B and open an herb store. She studies herbs, meditation, flower essence energy work, reiki, becomes a licensed wedding officiant.

Her two Sedona Soul Adventures and two weekend seminars (over the space of 5 years) led to many personal insights, an ability to reflect on her problems and try new tools to explore her psyche. Thinking about spirituality as an energy process opened her mind to other practices. 

She met Jorge Luis Delgado at the Sedona Soul Adventures workshop and decided to take the Machu Picchu trip after she worked in Tokyo on the Fukushima nuclear accident. The two weeks she spent with Jorge and a group of like minded souls was life changing, leading to a true commitment to the road less traveled no matter where it led. 

Linda researches cognitive theory, moral and behavioral psychology and finally concludes her mind is unreliable, much of her decision-making has been unconscious based upon past limited experience and thus faulty. She fails at being an entrepreneur and almost loses her home and possessions. 

linda ssa gradHer parents rescue her financially, but she has to overcome depression and loneliness. She slowly regains self-confidence by focusing on being of service to others and utilizing the spiritual skills she has learned over the years. She decides to study Neurosculpting and becomes certified to teach this visualization meditation.

Linda has published this book, Shattered Illusions: Reflections On My Disasterous Mid-life Crisis, with the hope of helping others avoid her mistakes.

Linda has graciously provided all of you with a coupon for 20% off the paperback edition. The Coupon Code is good through November 24: ZRAU3A

Buy the book and use the coupon code here: https://store.BookBaby.com/book/Shattered-Illusions

The e-book is only $9.99 on Amazon or Barnes & Noble.

I love hearing stories about people who have had huge transformations in their lives.

Congratulations, Linda! I’m so glad Sedona Soul Adventures and Peru and Jorge were such a wonderful part of your journey!

Wishing you a week filled with new patterns!


Today, I’m going to talk to you about How To Discover Patterns That Are Hurting Your Life.Back 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.
Have you ever looked at your life and thought, “Why did I do that?”

Or have you looked back over your life and noticed that you seem to do the same things over and over again, making some bad choices over and over again?
I was a divorce attorney for over 20 years and one of the things that happened during that time is that I had some clients that I did 3 divorces for! And the amazing thing was, what I noticed is that they were marrying the same person over and over again, they just had a different name. And what I also discovered is that if their father was an alcoholic, they would end up marrying alcoholics, or if their mother was withholding and couldn’t express love, they would marry someone who was – you guessed it – withholding and couldn’t express love. I now see this all the time with people who come here to Sedona Soul Adventures to do our retreats.
It doesn’t make any sense when we think about it rationally, but when you think about it from an emotional and spiritual standpoint, it makes perfect sense. With a childhood like that, you take on the belief that you’re not loveable and your soul is looking to heal that wound so it finds someone to bring that up for healing. You keep finding people that bring up that old wound of making you feel like you’re not loveable. It’s a vicious cycle if you don’t do something about it.
So the key for this, is to discover the patterns that you took on as a child that are still affecting you.
This process is quick and it is so enlightening. When I first did it, I couldn’t believe it. Here’s what you do:
Look at the top 6 areas of your life and look at how these same things were for your parents:

  1. Life
  2. Spirituality
  3. Work
  4. Money
  5. Relationships
  6. Body

Here were my answers when I first did this…
Life
My Parents: Life is hard
Me: Life is hard
Spirituality
My Parents: Believed in God
Me: Believe in a Higher Power
Work
My Parents: You have to work really hard and do things you don’t like to make money and support yourself.
Me: I was working really hard and doing things I didn’t like (practicing law) to make money and support myself.
Money
My Parents: Made a lot of money. Spent a lot of There was never enough. My mother would sit at the dining room table and write out checks to pay bills and say, “There’s not enough!”
Me: Made a lot of money. Spent a lot of money. Never enough. Amazingly, I would also sit at the dining room table and write out checks to pay bills and say, “There’s not enough!”
Relationships
My Parents: Marriage is hard. Parents are distant, Father is working nights and completely unavailable.
Me: I was already divorced by this time. I kept finding unavailable men. My first boyfriend was away at college. My first husband was in law school and studying all the time. My second husband was from Holland and we had a long distance relationship until we got married. After that marriage ended, I had a relationship with an American who lived in Tokyo.
Body
My Parents: My mother was constantly dieting, and as my father aged, he became morbidly obese. He would go on diets and lose 30-40 pounds and then would go off the diet and gain it all back and more.
Me: I was put on my first diet when I was 12, even though I wasn’t fat. I would continually go on diets and lose 20 pounds, and then I would go off the diet and gain it all back and more.
Although I thought I was completely different from my parents, I was completely like them in terms of how everything in my life was manifesting. When I realized that I was even sitting at the dining room table writing out checks to pay bills and saying, “There’s not enough,” I was totally, completely stunned. These patterns are set in ways that we don’t even realize until we start to consciously look at them.

Take ten minutes to think about how your parents, teachers, or others (who really influenced you as a child) interacted with the world. For most people, it will be your parents. How did they “do” money? How did they “do” food? How did they “do” relationships?
Remember, this is not about blame; this is about raising your conscious awareness. As I’ve said, we are creating our reality in every moment. I know I created these parents and I created these patterns. This is not my parents’ fault. I chose (unconsciously) to take on their thoughts and perceptions. This was one of the most valuable processes I ever did in my life, so I invite you to do it now.
Of course, now that you have gained this awareness, there are steps that you can take immediately. For me, one of the first things I did was to stop writing checks at the dining room table! I also broke up with the guy in Tokyo.
For most of us though, just having the awareness of these patterns isn’t enough to change them. It’s certainly a start and I really want you to do this exercise so that you know this much, and there are simple things that you can start to do to change some of these things around. But usually, the patterns are much deeper and most of us need help in dealing with them and turning them around.
If you would like some help with that, please contact us at Sedona Soul Adventures. This is what we’re the best at – uncovering the patterns and then giving you the tools to turn it around.

Relationship problems? The real problem is probably not what you think it is

We see it all the time in our Couples Retreats — what the people are telling us is the problem is usually not what’s REALLY causing the problems. It’s almost always something much deeper.

If you have any issues going on in your relationship (and let’s face it, most of us do) I REALLY want you to watch this video. After being a divorce attorney for 20 years and working with couples here at Sedona Soul Adventures for almost 20 years, I know that the #1 problem that most couples have is not communication – it’s the lack of nurturing each other…of getting what you need and giving what the other one needs.

Watch this video I did 2 years ago and you’ll see what I’m talking about:

Let us help you get back into the Nurturing Zone. Do a Couples Retreat with us either here in Sedona or in the comfort of your own home. Can you imagine how good it would feel to come back into the love and connection that brought you together in the first place?

Call us and connect with one of our Angel Guides. They’ll connect with both of you separately and really dig deep to discover what’s keeping you out of the Nurturing Zone.

Then they’ll put together a retreat that’s custom designed for exactly what you need and want, and to bring you back into the love, connection and sizzle that you crave.

Wishing you a week filled with love and nurturing!

Today I’m going to talk to you about How to get what you want in your relationship. If you’ve been following me for a while, you probably already know that I was a divorce attorney in Omaha, Nebraska for over 20 years. And then in 2002, I started Sedona Soul Adventures, where we do retreats for individuals and couples. So I spent 20 years divorcing people, and now I’ve spent almost 20 years helping people stay together. 

Our record for helping people with their relationships is absolutely stunning and it’s because we’re able to dig deep to get at the root of the problem, and sometimes the problem is not what either person thinks it is. A big piece of this is finding out what each of you need in your relationship and deciding if you are willing to give it to the other person?  

We had a couple here last year and it was stunning. The husband had an affair and on the surface it looked like just one of the usual situations that sadly we see a lot of. They had grown apart and the husband, I’ll call him Mike, had an affair. Even though he said he loved his wife, I’ll call her Linda, and he adored their two children, the affair had happened and it had gone on longer than Mike had originally told Linda. Linda, of course, was devastated and really, really angry and felt like she could never trust him again. And of course, those reactions are completely natural.  

Mike’s father was a womanizer and his mother left his father when he was very young. He and his mother went to live with relatives in a household that was basically full of men-hating women. Mike grew up hearing about how terrible men are, how you can’t trust them and they’re all womanizers, and he grew up afraid that he would be like that too. But he wasn’t, he’d been married for 20 years, had never had the urge to have an affair and was even saying to us over and over again, “I can’t believe I did that, I can’t believe I jeopardized my whole life” like that. 

Linda grew up in a family where her mother constantly criticized her father and so Linda thought that’s how you communicate with a husband. You get him to do what you want by criticizing him.  

We discovered through our process that the needs that Mike has are Words of Praise and Gifts.

At this point, this might sound to some of you like the Love Languages work that is out there, which I like, but what we do is very different and very specific for each person. 

We discovered through our process that the needs that Linda has are Listening, Conversation and Protection.

Which also made sense because Linda’s mother also criticized Linda and her father would never stand up for her with her mother, so Linda grew up believing, “I have no one to protect me.” 

So Linda needs a man who will talk to her and protect her. And we quickly discovered that Mike just simply wasn’t talking to her and really hadn’t been throughout their marriage and she was, quite understandably, upset about it. And of course, the affair was the ultimate betrayal, how could anyone feel protected by someone who had betrayed them?

Mike didn’t want to have a lot of conversations with Linda because she was constantly criticizing him. She thought she was “helping him” by telling him what to do and how to do it, but it all just felt like criticism to him and Linda got it, how it would feel like that to him. 

So here we have a man whose most basic relationship need is Words of Praise and all he’s getting is Criticism. We have a woman whose most basic relationship need is Conversation and we have a man who won’t talk to her.

But then here’s the kicker:

When we discovered that Mike’s other need was Gifts, we asked him about that. He started tearing up as he told us that he never got gifts when he was growing up, not even for his birthday.  

And guess who gives him gifts? The woman that he had an affair with. And guess what else she gave him? Words of Praise. His other deepest need. It wasn’t about sex, it was about him feeling valued. 

When Mike and Linda realized they were living in this crazy, vicious cycle of he needs Words of Praise and she’s criticizing him, and she needs Conversation and he doesn’t want to talk to her because he doesn’t want to get criticized…and how this had much more to do with their childhoods than with what is going on now…and it’s just this crazy thing that keeps on happening and keeps on going back and forth until someone finally says, “STOP! Wait a minute. He needs Words of Praise and Gifts, are you willing to give that to him?”

And we say to him, “She needs conversation and protection, are you willing to give that to her?” It was harder for him to say yes, because they had 20 years of not really talking to each other. But when she saw him tear up over the gifts thing, her heart just melted. When he got that she was just doing what her mother had taught her to do, he got it. They both got it — that you have to give the other one what they need, not what you think they need, but what they need and want, you have to nurture them in what they need. 

If you’re not willing to do that, you don’t have a relationship. And you certainly don’t have a relationship that’s going to last for very much longer. 

Now understand, I’m not saying that what Mike did was okay, far from it. Having an affair is simply not okay, but when Linda understood all this, she really got it, her heart opened and she was able to forgive him and love him again. 

So How about you?  

Do you know what you want in a relationship? I’ve been surprised to discover that most people don’t. 

Do you know (really) what your partner wants? 

Do you care? That’s actually the most important one, because if you aren’t willing to give your partner what they want, things aren’t going to work. 

Have you spent any time thinking about how your parents were with each other because that can be really telling.

Were they happy?
Were they loving with each other?  
Did they talk?  
Did they fight?  
What did they teach you? (Even though they probably didn’t think they were teaching you.) 

But even more deeply, how was your childhood? 

Did you feel loved?
Did you feel valued?
Were you criticized?
Did you grow up believing there’s something wrong with you?  

Sadly, for many of us, things happen to make us believe that we’re not enough, that we don’t deserve love and then we bring all that into our relationships and it comes out in all kinds of crazy ways, like having affairs and mistreating the person we’re supposed to love. 

What do you really want? 

What do you crave? 

What do you need? 

Come to Sedona and we’ll help you discover that and help move out the blocks that are keeping you from the loving relationship you desire. That’s what we do all day, every day with our custom-designed retreats. 

What you need is probably different than what your partner needs. The blocks that have happened for you are the result of different things that caused the blocks for your partner. We’ll dig all that out and bring you into the love that’s waiting for you.

Josh and Jen say their Couples Retreat was “the most amazing experience we have had in our lives” and “We feel like we are on fire!”

“This was probably the most amazing experience we have had in our lives and definitely as a couple. We came out of the adventure much closer and with a renewed sense of direction. We feel like we are on fire! We are ready to go out into the world and live our lives with joy and purpose! We want to make the most of our human experience and use our close partnership to support each other’s life purposes. Our lives have changed forever because of our Soul Adventure and it was just the boost we needed to grow in marriage and in life. We have a whole new perspective on our lives and we can truly see the endless possibilities now. We both feel so blessed that we were able to experience this adventure together and we will most definitely return to discover even more about our true selves as we travel along this path. Thanks to everyone at Sedona Soul Adventures who made this experience possible. We wish for everyone to receive the love and joy that they have given us.”

Wishing you a week filled with love on fire!

Happy Valentine’s Day! The day of love and lovers. 

happy valentines day

On this special day, I want to tell you about something I’ve come to believe, just in the past year, about relationships. It’s something that seems like I should have known this all along and when you hear it, you’re probably going to say something like, “Well, of course, Debra, everybody knows that.” 

But just stay with me for a moment because I think you might be surprised to find out that what I think the #1 thing that you either have or don’t have in your relationship, that either makes it or breaks it and that is…

Are you nurturing each other?
Does your beloved nurture you?
And are you nurturing your beloved? 

It seems like a simple question, but it’s not at all. Because it’s about a way of being. It’s a decision you’re making, in every moment.  

Do you truly want to nurture your beloved?  

Do you want to nurture them in the way they want to be nurtured? 

love-crazy

Or are you constantly picking at them, criticizing them and thinking nasty thoughts about them?

As most of you know, I was a divorce attorney for over 20 years and now I’ve done couples work in Sedona for almost 20 years. It appears to me that relationships are either mainly in the “I love you” zone or the “You drive me crazy” zone. And it seems like once you’ve rounded the corner into the “you drive me crazy” zone, there’s not much going back unless you really do something about it.

couple avoiding

There are basic problems that seem to show up a lot when the nurturing factor isn’t there. And in my experience, there are things that seem unique to women and unique to men. This is also borne out in John Grey’s Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus series of books (so please don’t write me that I’m stereotyping — I’ve watched this for almost 40 years!). 

mars and venus

If you’re a woman, do you: 

  • Complain a lot to your partner? 
  • Complain about your partner to other people?
  • Have you taken everything over because he won’t do the stuff you want him to do, in the way you want him to do it? 
tune out

If you’re a man: 

  • Are you engaging emotionally with your partner? 
  • Are you able to just sit and listen to your partner or do you always give advice, even when it’s not asked for?
  • Are there times when you simply tune your partner out? 

These are all danger signs. Big signals telling you, “STOP! You’ve got to do something here.”

If you’re a woman, stop complaining and stop doing everything because he’s not doing it right.

i want to nurture

If you’re a man, start listening and start really engaging emotionally with her.  

The biggest thing, is that you both have to make this basic decision: “I love this person and I want to nurture them.”  

So many books and articles say that communication is the most important thing in a relationship and of course, communication is extremely important, but think about it…

communication

Deciding to truly nurture your partner is at another layer below communication and everything else. If you are in nurturing mode, your communication will always be wonderful, the way you treat them will always be wonderful, and you’ll be having the perfect amount of sex and time together, because it will be based on each of you nurturing the other. 

nurture your partner

If you’re finding that you’re out of the nurturing zone, you can recognize that and you can do something about it. You literally can shift everything around by making this simple decision:

I want to nurture this person and I’m going to figure out how to do that.

drop resentments

It takes 

  • Willingness 
  • Dropping your resentments about what’s happened in the past 
  • Coming back into loving connection 

Now I know, doing these things is easier said than done. Letting go of past resentments is usually pretty difficult for both parties and that’s usually what’s holding one or both of you back from really getting into and staying in the nurturing zone.  

Or maybe you don’t have clarity about what you truly want. It’s hard to go out of your way to do something for the other person when you’re maybe not 100% sure that you want to be with them. 

happy couple sunset

Let us help you get back into the nurturing zone. Come to Sedona and do a Couples Retreat. Give it to yourselves as a Valentine’s Day present. Wouldn’t that be the most amazing present you’ve ever had? Coming back into the love and connection that brought you together in the first place?

Can’t we all just get along? A simple, but powerful solution

I don’t know about you, but 2021 has already been pretty tough!

My birthday was this past week and I spent part of the day getting a COVID test – now there’s the 2021 way of spending your birthday! Luckily, it was negative (and so was my husband’s). 

These past weeks have been so difficult, so divisive, and I have a simple, but powerful, solution – the ancient forgiveness technique of the Hawaiian kahunas, Ho’oponopono. 

The best part is, this works on everything. It doesn’t matter what you believe, it doesn’t matter what “side” you’re on, it doesn’t matter whether or not you think there is anything to be forgiven – it moves the energy of disconnection and brings in the energy of love and connection. And it only takes a few minutes.

Watch my video.

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

If you’re finding it hard to forgive a particular situation, we can help with that.

Give us a call. Speak with one of our Angel Guides. They’ll start the process of bringing you from where you are to where you want to be. And remember, there’s no cost or obligation and you can do the retreat either here in-Sedona or At Home.

Wishing you a week filled with forgiveness!

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.
 
I hope this helped, and If you got value from this video, please like, share the video and subscribe to our channel.
 
Forgiveness can be a really tricky and difficult thing to do. And if you find that you need some help, or you need to go deeper, connect with us.

You can have the life or relationship you want – I know it.

Don’t miss my interview with Jorge Luis Delgado, the world-renowned teacher and amazing shaman for our Peru trips

 

I believe that Jorge Luis is one of the most important teachers on the planet right now. I was so disappointed we had to cancel our annual trip to Peru this year because of the pandemic, so it was wonderful to connect with Jorge in this interview…

Especially as he leads us all through a powerful process of opening to the light and raising our vibrations. He also goes deep into Incan prophecies to talk about the lessons of the pandemic. Come get a taste of what our Peru adventure is like and experience the wisdom of this powerful teacher and master. We’ve just set the dates to return to Peru next year (click for the info)!
