How to Move from Self Defeating and Toxic Emotional Thinking to Become Empowered

I love the title of our next Masterclass:

How to Move from Self Defeating and Toxic Emotional Thinking
to Become Empowered

Wow, that seems like a whole lot to be able to do in an hour, doesn’t it?

And yes it is, but it’s amazing what can happen when you’re working with one of our amazing Practitioners, especially someone as incredible as Sarah Gallwey.

Can you imagine working with the person who actually began life coaching as we know it? That’s exactly what Sarah and Tim Gallwey did back in the day in Los Angeles.

Sarah then went on to become a Practitioner of “The Work” (the process she’ll be teaching you on this Masterclass) as well as a hypnotherapist, and she continues her amazing coaching work with Sedona Soul Adventures and we are so lucky to have her.

Sarah will take you through a process that is literally designed to turn self defeating, stressful thoughts and painful emotional reactions back to a sense of self love, inner strength, and emotional well being.

The process transforms toxic thought and brings back a flow of positive energy that is fresh and creative.

The process will allow you access into your higher potential to awaken. 

When negative conditioning is transformed into self love and empowerment, it lifts everything it touches, from your personal well being to your relationships, and even the quality of success in the work you do.

Isn’t that exciting? Join us:

It looks like we’re Reopening in Sedona on May 15

yana singing bowl

Arizona is currently on stay at home order until May 15. Our Governor has been lifting the orders gradually and it looks as though we will be able to reopen our Sedona retreats on May 15. Some retail has opened, salons are reopening May 8, and restaurant sit-down service restarts on May 11. So we are assuming that by May 15, all retail and service businesses will be reopened, subject to rules and restrictions.

One of the blessings for us is that we have always done private retreats, just with individuals and couples, never in groups. Because we know, after almost 20 years of doing this work, that true transformation happens when we are addressing your particular needs and your particular issues. What brought you to this place is different from what brought someone else to where they are. By discovering the blocks and gunk that are causing you problems or holding you back, we’re able to dig deep, move them out and bring you back into connection.

So we’ll keep you posted and barring any unforeseen decisions, we’ll be sending you an email just as soon as we know the situation.

And if you don’t want to wait, or you’d rather do your retreat from the comfort of your own home, we are so excited that our Virtual Retreats are providing the same “punch” as our retreats here in Sedona. It’s all because our Practitioners are truly Masters at moving and conducting this energy – so it doesn’t matter whether you’re in their healing space or your living room. The same incredible transformations are happening.

If you’d like that kind of transformation, give us a call.

Denise (from New York City) says her Soul Adventure gave her the strength to make it through this Covid pandemic and changed her to her core.

We received the most amazing testimonial this past week from Denise DiBratto who is from New York City. She had written me an earlier message telling me she wouldn’t have been able to make it through had it not been for her Soul Adventure, but then when she posted this on Trustpilot, it just made me burst into tears:

Oh my goodness, Denise. For you to be a grounding force for yourself and others is just so wonderful. 

And that’s what this is about. When people come to us, they are disconnected. We clear out the gunk and the blocks and move them back into connection and then give them the tools to stay there. Can you imagine what it would be like to be able to be okay no matter what life throws at you? Just like Denise, being a grounding force for yourself and others even during the worst of these past months. Call us.

Clearing Your Blocks to Financial Prosperity

I don’t know about you, but this pandemic has sent everyone I know into some sort of financial upheaval. If you were lucky enough to keep your job, I’m so happy for you, but the financial devastation that we’re seeing everywhere can affect all of us if we let it.

But if you’ve been following me for a while, you know that we can shift our energy around ANYTHING! And that’s why I feel our next Masterclass is so incredibly important for helping people at this time. And remember, it’s Live and it’s FREE!

Don’t Just Survive…Thrive!
Clearing Your Blocks to Financial Prosperity

SSA Master Practitioner
Barbara Joy

Each of us is experiencing the financial insecurity that is going on right now in different ways. What we do have in common is the truth that we all have energetic blocks in our conscious and subconscious minds contributing significantly to our outer world experience.

Most are in our subconscious mind. We aren’t able to identify them with our conscious mind, yet they are having a significant impact on our lives.

What are some of those blocks?

  • Limiting beliefs, perceptions and judgments
  • Patterns of self-limitation and self-sabotage
  • Thoughts and feelings of unworthiness

In this Masterclass, we’ll talk about common blocks most of us have and how to identify them with our conscious minds. You’ll receive tools and energy healing techniques which will help you shift away from survive and into thrive!

We’ll also call on a volunteer to help them clear some blocks – could that be you?

Carmen says her Virtual Soul Adventure “changed me completely in 3 days!”

I mean, Wow! Is that just so amazing? And that’s exactly what’s happening with our Virtual Retreats – people’s lives are being completely transformed.

I have to admit, when we first had the idea of doing Virtual Retreats back in March, I was concerned that we might not be able to deliver the same “punch.” But then I remembered a few things:

  • Energy is energy and what we are doing is moving out the old energy of disconnection, trauma and unhappiness, and moving people into the new energy of connection on all the levels – physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.
  • Our Practitioners are absolute Masters at moving this energy, harnessing this energy and conducting this energy.
  • Because energy is energy and our Practitioners are Masters at utilizing it, it makes no difference whether you’re in their healing space here in Sedona or in your own home, you will receive this energy, you will feel it, and you will know.

And the results are ALMOST unbelievable. As Carmen says, her life was changed completely in 3 days!

Call us today or Click here and we’ll call you. One of our Angel Guides will connect with you (or both of you for a Couples Retreat) and we’ll go deep, to discover what’s holding you back from having the life or relationship of your dreams. Then they’ll custom design the perfect retreat to bring you exactly what you’re yearning for. And you can do it all from the comfort of your own home.

How To Create Sacred Space and Why It’s Important

Most of us are stuck at home right now, so wouldn’t it be amazing to turn your home into a place that makes you feel more balanced and peaceful? Especially in these crazy times when many of us aren’t feeling balanced and peaceful?

We’ve all heard that “our Body is our Temple”… and yes. It is!!

But how about the idea that “your Home is your Sanctuary”?

Certainly not a new idea. Still, do we choose to live by it?

How would it feel if YOU did?

Imagine enjoying your home as a sacred space, where everything you see and touch holds deep personal meaning, and where each item reflects back to you some aspect of your own inner world, and calls you to remember the best of who you are.

In this Masterclass with our amazing Sedona Soul Adventures Practitioner, Jim Berenholtz, we’ll show you how to do exactly that, easily and simply.

We’ll explore how you can make your living environment an inspirational and uplifting realm, one that calls to you each and every day to attain your highest and truest expression of yourself.

You’ll learn how the chatter in your mind may relate to the clutter in your closet, or to the ugly pile of junk you’ve built up in the corner of some room. What if you were to donate the stuff that you don’t really need? And then replace it with an altar (or other space) that embodies harmony, balance and peace?

Would you consequently feel more balanced and peaceful within? The simple answer is Yes!

These are among the creative exercises you will engage in as you journey with Jim to make your home the Best Home Ever!! Your entire family will feel the difference. And you’ll see how easy and simple it is to do.

Jim is one of the most amazing people I’ve ever met – he’s traveled all over the world and knows more about so many different cultures than anyone I know. He is constantly astounding me with his knowledge and understanding, especially his knowledge of ceremony and the sacred.

 You’ll even get to see some of the amazing stuff Jim has in his own home here in Sedona.

Eboni says her Virtual Soul Adventure was “powerful” and “gave me a new appreciation for myself”

I’m just so excited at what’s happening with our Virtual Retreats!

Wouldn’t you love to have a new appreciation of yourself and your gifts?

Ellen (the perfectionist) says her Virtual Soul Adventure was “incredible,” “well worth it” and she was “thrilled” and feels “more grounded and steady”

We just had someone finish their Virtual Retreat this week and I was so happy to be able to connect with her and speak with her at the end of her retreat. I was especially happy because Ellen (not her real name) did an Enneagram session and found out she is a One, which is the Perfectionist and she gave us 5 stars!! It’s so funny, because Perfectionists usually can’t rate anything as perfect, but she did!

I was especially happy because she told us that before her Virtual Retreat she was feeling “unsteady” and “easily shaken.” Isn’t that how a lot of us are feeling right now with everything that’s going on in the world? 

She had so many incredible sessions, one after the other, and said that after her retreat she feels more grounded and more sure of herself. And she told me she knows she has the tools to not only maintain that, but to have it go deeper and deeper, and that’s exactly what we want to have happen.

I’m so thrilled that the Virtual Retreats are so incredible, the transformations have been so phenomenal. And as I said on the Masterclass last week, energy is energy –our Practitioners are masters at harnessing and utilizing the transformational energy of Sedona, moving the old energy out, moving the new energy in, so it doesn’t matter whether you’re in their healing room or your living room, they are Masters at making these amazing transformations happen. I just get tingly thinking about it.

So if you’d like to release the old stuff that’s no longer serving you and have a true transformation, give us a call. Speak to one of our Angel Guides. They’ll connect with you (or both of you for a couples retreat) in deep conversation, digging deep to discover the blocks and gunk that are holding you back. Then they’ll custom design a retreat that will move all that out and bring you into the life or relationship of your dreams. And you can do it all from the comfort of your own home.

Use Your Tax Refund on a Whole New Life or Relationship

tax refund

It’s that time of year again, and I hope you’re getting a nice big tax refund. It’s so great having that sudden jolt of available cash!

We have lots of people we’re working with right now who are waiting on their tax refund to use it for their Soul Adventure – isn’t that a great idea?

You worked hard all last year and here’s some extra money that is yours to keep and do with as you like. Wouldn’t it be perfect to spend that extra abundance on the one person who made it possible – YOU!?!

What a concept!

  • Taking care of yourself
  • Making yourself even better and happier this year
  • Indulging yourself by coming to the most beautiful place on earth 

We have so many people who come to us and say, “I’ve wanted to do this for so many years and now I’m finally doing it!”

Is this the year you give yourself the gift of a Sedona Soul Adventures retreat? We’ve just started our 18th year – isn’t that amazing? And even after all this time and all these thousands of people, I sometimes still can’t believe what happens for people when they come here.

Here’s one of our most recent reviews that Melanie posted on the third party review site, Trustpilot (third party means that Trustpilot verified she really is a client, she wrote the review and sent it to them, so you can be assured we aren’t just making this up!).

Now that just says it all!

If you could transform your life in three days, would that be worth spending your tax refund on it? If you could come back into connection with your beloved and have the relationship of your dreams after four days, would that be worth it to you? 

I know some of you are going to be thinking, “Yeah, right, my life will be transformed,” but it really is true. I know because I’ve witnessed it thousands of times. And don’t take my word for it, take Melanie’s and the hundreds of reviews we’ve received on Trustpilot in just the last few years (if you’d like to read the reviews, click below).

More Sex, Fight Fair and Let Go of the Past

All this month, I’ve been sending you videos about how to have a fabulous New Year and New Decade. As part of that, I want to tell you three very specific things you can do right now for having your relationship be fantastic in 2020. And each of these things are backed up by scientific studies, which I love!

Give a listen – this could save your relationship! Or send it to someone (your partner, maybe?) who might benefit from it.

Relationships are hard. I know – I was a divorce attorney for 20 years, I’ve been doing couples work with Sedona Soul Adventures for almost 20 years and I’ve been married more than once. 

I’m happy to say I’m in a blissful marriage now, but one of the reasons it’s blissful is because I practice what I preach. I do the three specific tips I just gave you and when something is going on, my husband and I do sessions with our practitioners here, because they are the best of the best and sometimes you just need to hear something from a third person. 

We all need help, once in a while – even me!

Do you need help? Does your relationship need help? If your relationship is on the wrong path right now, you’ve got to do something to turn it in the right direction.

Give us a call and let us custom design the perfect retreat for the two of you.

I love this post from Rachel on Facebook:

Wouldn’t you love to have all that happen for you and your relationship?

  • To thrive more as a couple
  • To thrive more as an individual
  • To thrive more as a parent
  • To really show up for each other and in your lives
  • To have your relationship feel NEW

To have a whole new relationship, that’s what happens when people do a Couples Soul Adventure. Call us and let’s get one started for you.

couple red rocks

Most of you who have been watching my videos over the years know that I was a divorce attorney for over 20 years in Omaha, Nebraska and then after that, I’ve spent almost 20 years working with couples through Sedona Soul Adventures – so I have almost 40 years experience of working with couples.

Today I want to give you 3 specific tips for making your relationship stronger.

What I love about these is that they are actually based on scientific studies. I love it when studies prove things that we intuitively already know. 

have sex often

The first one is one – and when you first hear it, you’re probably going to say something like, “Duh, Debra, everybody knows that” – but I want you to really listen to it. Here it is: 

If you want your relationship to thrive, you should be having sex often and regularly. 

And here’s why:

woman staring out window

Because studies have shown there is a direct correlation between how often you have sex and the positive feelings you have about your partner. The more frequently partners had sex, the more positive their implicit, or gut-level, positive feelings about the relationship were. This is according to a study in Psychological Science. 

implicit attitude

So let me explain exactly what this means. Your implicit feeling about your partner is your automatic response to them. Let’s say they walk in the door at the end of the day and you’re tired and know you have to make dinner. The study researchers reported,  “When you’re tired and don’t have the energy to think about how you feel about your partner, the implicit attitude you have toward them is the one that will come out and influence the way you treat them.” 

Of course we all know that, but here’s the kicker: in the study, the more people had sex, the more their implicit response – their automatic response to their partner – was positive. So by having more sex, you’re increasing the likelihood that your automatic response to your partner, the response you don’t even think about, will be positive. 

have more sex

And how do you want to feel about your partner? You want to automatically feel good about them. Ergo, have more sex. 

One of the things that’s been so heartbreaking for me, both when I was a divorce attorney and now after all these years of working with couples at Sedona Soul Adventures, is to find out the number of couples who have not had sex in a really, really long time. I mean 2 ½ years, 5 years, even 10 years. It’s such an indicator of what’s going on in the relationship. And sometimes there ARE things going on – anger, mistrust, upset with the other person – but if you allow those to linger, if you don’t take steps to fix them, that’s when you’re going to have long term trouble, the kind of trouble that leads to divorce and separation. 

fight fair

Which leads us to Tip No. 2:

Figure out how to fight fair.

Anger and Stonewalling don’t work, they lead to health problems and long term unhappiness.

Again, “duh,” but really listen to this because I love what this study found. They followed 156 couples over a 20 year period, observing the same couples every 5 years, and found that people who get really angry in arguing with their spouse have a greatly increased risk of heart disease. 

increased heart disease

The people who stonewall (meaning, “I don’t want to talk about his right now”) and so then they never really deal with their problems, were much more likely to develop musculoskeletal problems, meaning back pain. The other thing I loved about this study is that the researchers said in their report that a lot of the couples in this study had the same conflict year in and year out, and they usually discussed it in eerily similar terms. Dr. Robert Levenson of UC Berkeley said, “Sometimes we’d be listening in and wondering, ‘Is this the same conversation they had five years ago?’” 

anger and stonewalling

Anger doesn’t work. Stonewalling doesn’t work. It can give you heart disease and back pain, and lead to years of unhappiness. You’ve got to figure out a better way of communicating with each other than getting angry or giving the other person the silent treatment. 

And this leads directly to the 3rd tip:

leave the past

Leave the past In the past.

If you work through a hardship together and come to a positive resolution, move past it and use the experience as an opportunity to learn and grow. Don’t keep throwing it in your partner’s face during arguments, don’t use it to guilt-trip your partner, and try not to assume that just because something happened once, it will happen again. What’s passed is past, and rehashing old ugliness will just poison future happiness. Let it go. 

poison future happiness

I know from my own personal experience and also from working with couples how hard this is. We had a couple here this year who two years ago, the man had an emotional relationship with someone at work. Nothing sexual ever happened and he stopped it when he realized where it was going and told his wife about it. She was understandably very upset, but even after two years of therapy, she simply could not let this go and she continually accused him of doing it again – although he never did – and she was jealous and angry and becoming really nasty with him all the time. 

They were on the verge of divorce when they came to us and we discovered that she had some core wounds from her childhood around not being worthy of love. That’s what was preventing her from letting this go. When she really got it that it was her own feelings of not being loveable, not his behavior that was really causing the problem, she was able to let it go and they were more in love than ever, saving their marriage, which I was especially happy for because they have two young children.  

let go of the past

If your relationship and your family is important to you, you have to find a way to let go of the past and reclaim the love the two of you have. 

And of course, sometimes that’s a whole lot easier said than done. Sometimes we just can’t get beyond things that have happened, especially if they involve trust or betrayal. But the question is: Do you want to hold onto that or do you want to hold onto your marriage and your family? 

So here are the tips: 

sizzle
  1. Have more sex  
  2. Learn how to disagree without anger and stonewalling
  3. Let go of the past 

How are you doing with those? Is your relationship where you want it to be? Does it still Sizzle like it used to? Is your partner your best friend?

If not, I can tell you that you’re on a difficult road, a road that is probably going to lead you someplace you don’t want to go. So you have two choices:

two choices
  1. Do something about it, or 
  2. Get more and more miserable

The second choice is what a lot of people do for a long period of time before they simply can’t stand it anymore and they split up. I don’t want that for you. I don’t want that for your family.

Our couples retreats are so powerful because they are custom designed for exactly what the two of you need.

First, we’ll talk to each of you separately before you even come to Sedona, really digging deep to get to the causes of the problems and what got you here. The problems that got you here in the first place are different for everybody and need to be treated in the specific ways that you need.

Then we’ll custom design your retreat and when you come to Sedona, you’ll be working one-on-one with the Master Practitioners here, some of whom have over 20 years of working with couples. Your sessions will be completely private. You won’t be in a group where you’ll have to air your dirty laundry in front of a lot of strangers. You’ll be working privately with people who are caring and compassionate, helping you to move through the blocks and gunk that have brought you here and bringing you back into connection. Connection with yourself, connection with your beloved and connection with that third thing which is your relationship. 

We’ve had so many people come to us on the verge of divorce, sometimes with the papers already signed, and we’ve turned things around and brought them back to the love that brought them together in the first place. And we’ve had so many people where the sizzle is gone and they want to take their relationship to the next level – really bringing in the love and connection that is so juicy and wonderful and satisfying.

I hope this helped, and if you got value from this video, please like, share the video with someone you think might get something out of it and subscribe to our channel

But if you’re ready to have the relationship of your dreams and move through the problems of the past, call us at (928) 204-5988 today to talk to us so that we can custom design the perfect retreat for your needs and desires. 

We all want to be loved in the way we want to be loved. Sometimes we need help finding that. If this is something you’re searching for, please call us – or if you’d like more information, go to SedonaRetreatGuide.com and get your complimentary copy of The Sedona Guide to Couples Retreats today.

She Decided to Take Care of Herself and this is What Happened

A few weeks ago, we had an incredible person here to do a Sedona Soul Adventures retreat. Aprille Franks is an amazing woman who was looking to heal and expand as a person. She’s a Master Business Coach who works with women looking to create their own raving communities and make a good living while doing it!

Aprille is passionate about empowering women through entrepreneurship – working with speakers, authors and other coaches looking to level up. But before she could go any further, she had some soul searching to do herself. She says every leader should take the time to explore who they really are, outside of their day to day.

And when Aprille decided she needed to do something to take care of herself, she came to us.

She came to Sedona to do a Soul Adventure and it was life-changing for her. And I was so surprised (and honored) when she did this Facebook Live, talking about how incredible, healing, enlightening and magical her retreat was. And I feel very blessed that she has agreed that I can share this with you.

It’s 34 minutes long, it’s raw and it is heart-felt.

Aprille told all of the people she works with, “you need to do a Soul Adventure.” How about you? 

  • Are you feeling stuck? 
  • Are you living your life purpose?
  • Do you want to find your life purpose?
  • How’s your relationship doing? 
  • Are you living your best life?

Give us a call and let us help. It’s what we do.

How to do a Negativity Detox

Did you know that scientific studies (including one at Yale) show that being positive is more important for living longer than:

  • Cholesterol levels
  • Weight 
  • Smoking
  • Blood pressure
  • Exercise

Watch my video and learn how to do a Negativity Detox.

I hope this helped, but I also know that sometimes we’re in such a negative spiral that we absolutely have to have some help. That was my situation when I came to Sedona 21 years ago – every part of my life was a mess. And thinking positive thoughts (which I was trying to do), just wasn’t cutting it; things were just continuing to get worse. I needed help and that’s why I came to Sedona all those years ago.

Maybe a trip to Sedona could help you. What a perfect way to really get this year going. Call us. We’re masters at getting to the root causes of what’s causing your negativity, moving it out and bringing you back into Connection, to live in Love and Joy and Harmony. And it just might help you live longer.

Call us right now (we’re even open on Sundays because we’re here for you). We’ll connect with you and then we’ll custom design a retreat that’s perfect for exactly what you need to start moving you back into positivity. Click below and we’ll call you.

Karen says her “magical and mystical” Soul Adventure “was definitely a 10” and gave her a “positive perspective”

“My experience with Sedona Soul Adventures was definitely a 10. My work with the different practitioners allowed me to achieve a positive perspective of my life, the challenges that I had faced in the past few years, and let go of the feeling of loss that I had been carrying. It was a very enlightening and comforting experience from start to finish. The whole interaction with Sedona Soul Adventures was great – from the description of what an individualized experience could be on the website, to the first phone interaction when I called. Everything was just what I had hoped for. I felt very nurtured and cared for. It was just as magical and mystical an experience as I had hoped to find in Sedona.”

Laura says, “My trip to Peru was a life-altering experience. My heart has expanded to new levels. I am so open and the feeling is other worldly.

“My trip to Peru was a life-altering experience thanks to the efforts of Debra, as well as an amazing group of sacred travelers. The universe is such a powerful place. I find it truly amazing how much coordination and dedication it takes to have so many pieces come together to create such a perfect moment in my life. I feel blessed to have been a part of that moment in time as it opened a whole new portal in my life. I cannot begin to express my gratitude. This is an excerpt of an email I sent to one of my best friends after the trip: I laughed. I cried. I was awed. I experienced new dimensions. I felt love and gave love. My gratitude is endless. I feel fortunate to have experienced the Andes Mountains and people. My heart has expanded to new levels. I am so open and the feeling is other worldly. I have made amazing friends. The group, the leaders and the guide were all amazing teachers. I cannot wait to share everything with you.

Today I want to challenge you to do a Negativity Detox. 

Everybody is always talking about doing a detox from sugar, a detox from carbs or a liver detox, and those are great if they make you feel better – but I’m talking about a detox that will not only make you feel better, but there are scientific studies that show it could help you live longer.

And that’s what a Negativity Detox does – taking 30 days to identify and eliminate all the negativity in your life. It can be a daunting but very exciting task, and I really want to invite you to give it a try. If you do it for 30 days, you could be on the road to a happier, healthier and longer life. 

And I’m saying that because there are so many studies out there on this, but one of my favorite ones is a study at Yale University. The study followed 660 people for up to 23 years that were aged 50 and older. The ones who had a more positive outlook about getting older lived 7 years longer than those who had a negative outlook about it. 

But here’s my favorite part: the Positive Attitude had a greater impact than… 

  • Cholesterol levels
  • Weight
  • Smoking
  • Blood pressure
  • Exercise

All the things that everyone tells us to be worried about. People need to be more worried about not being so worried and not being so negative all the time. 

So how do you go about doing this? 

First, you need to know about your thoughts. According to the National Science Foundation, an average person has about 12,000 to 60,000 thoughts per day. Of those, 80% are negative and 95% are repetitive thoughts. So if you’re like most people, you’re thinking the same negative thoughts over and over again. 

That’s what’s causing all the problems and that’s where the Negativity Detox comes in. If you want to change it, you’ve got to do something about it – you need to do something to interrupt that pattern. 

So how do you do a Negativity Detox?

The idea is to eliminate as much negativity as you can from your life. And it starts with YOU. What type of person are you naturally? Are you a “the cup is half empty” or “the cup is half full” kind of person? 

If you’re a “the cup is half full” person, you’ve got a leg up. If you’re a “the cup is half empty” person, the key is turning that around, to flip the switch.

So, just for the next 30 days, decide to react positively no matter what the situation. It can help to decide on a phrase that you automatically tell yourself when something happens that you would normally react negatively to. Something like, “Wow, that’s interesting,” or if it’s something with a person, it could be something like, “Gosh, I wonder what’s going on with them?” Come up with a phrase that works for you that you can start using automatically. 

It’s about dropping the judgment and the automatic reaction. So if someone cuts in front of you in traffic, instead of getting all angry and flipping them off, you have your prepared statement, “Wow, that’s interesting, I wonder what’s going on with them?” Can you see how that would help if you did that every single time for the next 30 days?

If you’re having negative thoughts about yourself or your life, have another statement for that: If you find yourself thinking, “My life sucks,” immediately say or think to yourself your prepared statement, something like, “Wow, isn’t it interesting how these thoughts come in?” And then try to think about something that makes you feel better, like your dog or cat or grandbaby or a funny movie, ANYTHING that can bring you into thinking something more positive. 

How do you get out of bed in the morning? Do you lie there and think, “Oh my God, I can’t even drag myself out of bed,” or do you immediately start thinking about all the 10 million things you have to do today?  

How about coming up with a different way to start your day, just for the next 30 days? Would it help you to literally jump out of bed and say, “Wow, another great day!”? Would it help you to get up 15 minutes early and meditate, exercise or do something (anything) that would be guaranteed to make you feel good? Think of a way to change your pattern in the morning, get up differently, feel differently, do things differently, put your pants on with a different leg first… things that tell your brain you’re doing things differently. 

And then, are there people or situations that are just always negative for you? If so, can you simply avoid these people or places for the next 30 days? 

Of course there are some places you can’t avoid, like your workplace.  

How is the atmosphere there? If it’s really toxic, is it possible for you to speak with your co-workers or a supervisor and talk about ways that your workplace could be a happier place to be in?

If there are people or situations there that bug you, have your prepared statement, “Wow, that’s interesting” or “Gosh, I wonder what’s going on with them.” If you keep that up for even three days, I think you’ll be amazed at what happens when you don’t allow yourself to go into the automatic response you’re so used to. 

If you feel really industrious, I want to invite you to keep a journal about this. You might start each day bounding out of bed and decide to do a gratitude journal. Take three minutes to write down what you’re grateful for – you could even write down positive things about that coworker who bugs you, something like, “She is smart and knows what she’s doing.” And then at the end of the day, journal about how the day went. Give yourself permission to not be perfect; you’re already wired to think thousands of negative thoughts per day, you’re not going to stop them all at once, but just start noticing how you’re thinking more positively and feeling a little better. 

Do this for 30 days and see how you feel. See if you’re thinking and feeling differently about things. If so, keep on incorporating that into your life. 

And sometimes we find ourselves in a negative spiral that even positive thinking can’t help. For some people, it’s from trauma they’ve suffered in the past. For some people, they’ve grown up in an atmosphere where nothing they did was right, they were criticized constantly and it led to them feeling negatively about everything. Unless and until you clear this stuff out, it’s probably always going to be with you. That’s when you might want to think about doing a retreat with us. My life was in a downward, negative spiral until I came to Sedona and worked with the amazing practitioners who are here. We’re masters at getting to the root causes of what’s causing your negativity, moving it out and bringing you back into connection, to live in love and joy and harmony.
