Spring Retreat to Renew Your Love

Is your relationship in a rut? Try this tool to stop pushing love away.

1. Do you keep fighting over the same issues and shut down and stuff your feelings? This habit will result in an explosion of hurtful words and pushing each other away.

2. EFT or Emotional Freedom empower you with the tools to heal your past hurt and trauma and stop your recurring fighting patterns. First realize, that each of you are reacting from past hurt and trauma, and never from what is or has happened in the present moment. Until you heal the old stuck hurt and trauma, it will continue to be brought to the surface to be healed and released.

3. Agree on a word that can be used by both partners as a signal to stop the fight. Make an agreement to honor each other and your love by stopping the argument when the word is said by either partner. This word must have meaning for both of you. Words used by previous couples include: love, partnership, agreement, commitment, healing, what is important, the past, freedom, I choose love. You can also decide on a symbol of love and unity ie: a Dove, heart, a pink bubble of light. When you feel yourself stuck in reaction say the word and hold the symbol in your mind and breath.

4. If you become so triggered that you can't keep yourself from reacting; you are hitting a core survival issue. When this occurs you might need help to get unstuck. Find someone who has experience working with couples and EFT and give them a call to either work in person, or over the phone.

Our Sedona Retreats offer tools for healing your core issues with EFT or Emotional Freedom Technique. I also work with clients throughout the world by phone and have great results with couples issues, core issues, stop smoking and weight loss. If you are feeling stuck and want to reconnect to the love you once felt in your relationship give me a call. Spring is a great time to retreat and heal your relationship and reconnect to love.

Angels around you!

Angels are always there waiting to be invited to assist you and guide you to your highest path. However, because of free will, Angels will never interfere unless we invite them.

Are you feeling anxious and fearful of the earth changes and current changes in our economy and environment? Anxiety never protects you but robs you of inner peace and joy. Here are some tips to release fear and anxiety and connect with inner peace and joy.

1. Light a candle and ask your angels to give you the strength to let go of your fear and worry habit. As a child you learned to fear as a way of feeling ready for what happens next. Each time you think fear thoughts and worry about the future your body is flooded with stress hormones. This eventually begins to overstress your organs, glands, and cells.

2. Your body becomes addicted to the chemicals associated with the stress hormones. Spend fifteen minutes seeing and feeling yourself shift from fear to feelings of trust and being safe to be in the moment.

3. Each time you find yourself fearing or worrying about your future--shift from fear to your vision of what you want. Feel the presence of your Angels around you supporting you. See yourself happy, feeling safe, smiling, surrounded by loving supportive friends and family.

Journal about your level of fear and anxiety. How much fear and anxiety do you feel on a daily basis. Perhaps, it has been there so long it feels natural and you would feel too vulnerable without it? On a scale of 0-10 how much fear do you feel? Are you ready to let it go?

Kim and Preston came to Sedona for our Couples retreat to let their relationship stress go. Our Sedona Retreats provide a safe place to connect with your patterns, and we provide the tools to leave your fear and anxiety in the past. Gift yourself or a loved one with a special healing Sedona Retreat.

You have a choice...Expect the Worst or Hope for the Best!

Are you spending your energy on fear and worry and expecting the worst? You can choose to hope for the best. What is the worst that can happen from allowing yourself to focus on hoping for the best?

Do you have the habit of fearing and worrying? Have you convinced yourself that you need fear and worry to feel safe. Are you ready to let fear and worry go?

A smile lifts your mood and vibrations. One of the gifts that you can give yourself and others is to learn the habit of smiling. Life is stressful right now. Tough economy, high gas prices, and world disasters. The mind doesn't know the difference in an imagined threat and a real threat. When you fear and worry your create hormones that stress your body/mind. You have a choice; you can choose to keep smiling and the world will smile with you. Three tips to stop the fear and worry habit.

1. When you notice the old fear and worry habit creep into your thoughts and emotions, stop and breathe. Hit the delete button and take that habit to the trash bin.

2. Next see a beautiful rose in your mind. Create a rose of any color that appeals to you. Bow your head and let that symbolize coming into your heart. Breathe the fear and worry and all the chemicals and hormones created by the emotions of fear and worry move from your body into the beautiful rose.

3. Now see and feel your guardian angel around you. Feel a beautiful waterfall of light washing through your mind and nervous system washing away all the fear and worry chemicals and hormones. Notice the rest of your day going more smoothly as you allow inner peace and the chemicals of inner peace to permeate your cells.

Our Sedona retreats empower you with tools to create the habit of hope and connect with inner peace and passion. Choose a day retreat, three day or week long retreat with us at Retreat and Heal and let us empower your life and dreams.

Shift Gears in Your Mind and Create Inner Peace

Inner Peace and Success are possible. 4 Tips to Shift Your Mind and create inner peace now. Sedona is a place of magical beauty and intense healing energy. Follow these tips to create more peace without leaving home. Many people are feeling more and more overwhelm and less peace within on a daily basis. Rising living costs with higher gas prices and the threat of higher food prices create more and more fear; and for many make it harder to sleep at night. Follow these tips to release your fears and choose inner peace.

1. First of all you must take the monster out of the closet. What are you most afraid to admit to yourself? Is the fear that you feel equal to the looming threat in your mind?

2. Often the threat and the fear associated with the underlying fear are only imagined. However, scientific research shared in What the Bleep Do We Know,shows that the mind doesn't know the difference in a "real" threat, or an imagined threat. Most imagined threats are exaggerated by fear stored in the subconscious mind.

3. The only way to make sure that you are not losing sleep over imagined fears is to consciously explore what you are reacting to. One good way to face your fear head on is to journal just before bed and complete all your feelings from the day.

4. Listening to music such as the Reiki Music above is a great way to relax and release fear and worry.

Spring Cleaning Tips to Clear Body, Mind and Spirit

Retreat and spring clean your body, mind, and renew your spirit. It has been warm in Sedona for the last few days and I have opened the windows and began my spring cleaning? A clean house feels fresh and has a feeling of vibrant energy. Are you ready to clear away the stuck energy in your life? Here are some tips to retreat and renew yourself without leaving home.

1. Purchase a beautiful new vibrant colored journal. Write down what you love about your life and what you are most unhappy with. Spend time thinking about the things that you want to expand and see the unhappy emotions and habits being replaced by more of what you love. Notice how refreshing it feels to expand what you love.

2. Purchase a small green candle. Light your candle as you write in your journal. Set your intention to connect with your angels or guides (whichever fits your beliefs).

3. Shower each morning. As you allow the shower to cleanse your body. Set your intentions to release your stress from your body, mind, and spirit. As you shower imagine being in a pine forest and how fresh the air smells.

4. After your shower spend time practicing breathing and release your thoughts. As a thought floats in release it to your Angels. Ask your Angels to assist you to quiet your mind and reach a deep meditative and peaceful place inside. Once you are in that very peaceful place visualize yourself happy and peaceful throughout your day.

5. EFT is a very powerful and simple way to release your stress and stuck emotions. Love's Secret is an award winning book that empowers you to apply EFT. Email me if you have questions regarding our Sedona Retreats, EFT or Sedona Readings.

Retreat to Connect to Joy

Retreats are a necessity in our world today. Create a refuge in your mind and experience joy in a moment's notice. With the stress of the economy causing more and more anxiety, tension, and stress; stress management is a valuable tool. Here are some quick tools to keep you centered no matter what is going on around you. Hope this video and post brings you joy!

1. Decide on a word that symbolizes joy. For me it is the hummingbird. It can be "I choose to feel safe and experience joy." If you have no memories of joy then you need to create those feelings and anchor them into your body.

2. Next think of the most beautiful and peaceful place that you can remember. As you hold a picture of this place. Remember all the details. See all the colors, see and visualize everything clearly in your mind. The more clearly you can imagine your peaceful place, in your mind, the more powerfully you can anchor in the feeling of joy.

3. The next step is to feel the joy that your place brings to your body, mind and spirit. Add the feeling of gratitude for having this beautiful and peaceful place. As you hold the feeling of joy, say your anchor phrase, and see your peaceful place. Take five long deep breaths. Feel all the cells, and atoms of your body bathed in love, light, and joy.

Leave me a message and let me know how this works for you. Also leave me a message with your most challenging stress and I will leave you tools to release your stress.

Retreat and Heal offers Personal Healing Retreats for healing body, mind and spirit. The above video shares joy of giving and caring for something so beautiful and innocent as a hummingbird. Giving joy reconnects you with inner peace, and joy. Our retreats empower you to calm your mind and emotions. We would love to share the healing energy of Sedona with you. Sedona is a beautiful place to retreat and heal.
