Retreat and Advance To Inner Peace

Retreat in the moment and connect to inner peace. Is inner peace harder to find with anxiety and stress feeling normal throughout your days and evenings? Learn to anchor in peace at a moment's notice.

Create a word, phrase or picture and train yourself to anchor peace into your body and mind no matter where you are or what you are doing. Press pause and stop feelings of being fragile, unstable and insecure. Choose to be happy by controlling your thoughts, and your emotions. If you have a pattern of reacting to life with fear, frustration, or irritation; that habit will continue until you replace it with a new habit. See a picture and connect it to a feeling and when you visualize the picture; it is a great way to train your mind and body to react differently. Follow these tips and anchor in peace throughout your day.

Start your day with 15 minutes of stillness in nature either in your mind or if possible physically. There is never a better time to begin than now.

* Stay present through out your day, recognize; acknowledge your emotional warning signals. Practice conscious breathing throughout your day and check in with your body. Most people are detached from their body and travel through their day on auto-pilot.

*Use your breath to keep yourself present and stop what you are doing in the moment. Your breath can stop your automatic stress response and stop your automatic response to your addicted emotional cycle.

* Breathe away negativity. Your breath is another anchoring tool to change your addicted emotions, and habits. You can choose to release the internal sensation of anxiety and overwhelm from your body. Your breathing facilitates the release of negative energy and keeps you focused on love, success, and inner peace.

Our years of experience teaching and facilitating personal healing and empowerment make us your complete healing destination. A spiritual retreat with us offers a safe place to meditate, and change your old beliefs and patterns with Reiki, healing massage, time in nature at the healing vortex sites, EFT and Hypnotherapy.

Reward Yourself with Scheduled Breaks to Release Your Stress

Stress and tension become a normal feeling in your body. Imagine if Medical doctors prescribed a day every month to go on retreat, a long weekend every three months, and a longer sabbatical on a regular basis. These breaks would clear stress and recharge batteries, and diminish the intensity of our societies' high stress levels. Everyone has stress the key is learning effective tools to manage stress. Below find secrets to manage stress and recharge your body/mind/and spirit.

Say no to stress and overwhelm. When you are tired learn to walk away and take a break. This can be as little as 15 minutes, or as much a full week. When you are stressed you are not able to be productive. Take a break, when you return to the project refreshed you bring renewed energy, a refreshed mind, and more successful results.

Develop the habit of deep breathing. Shallow breathing is a habit learned as a child. Shallow breathing is responsible for many diseases and stress related illness. Post signs in your office, in your car, at home, and remind your self to breath deeply.

Is Sedona Arizona Calling You? What I love about Sedona

Sedona, Arizona first called me home in 1987. You know when something comes to your mind and you can't seem to shake it. It was love at first sight for me with Sedona, below I am sharing what I love about Sedona and why you might want to schedule a Personal Healing Retreat with Retreat and Heal.

• I love the Red Rocks in Sedona and you won't find anything more beautiful anywhere in the world. You won't have to hunt to find them they are everywhere you look.

• The reason I love the red rocks is they are a rare rock formation not found in many places on the earth. The red comes from the high iron content in the rock formations.

• I love the hiking trails located in all directions. People travel from around the world to hike these trails. A hike is a good way to get out among the rocks and soak in the views and healing energy.

• The hiking trails are both easy and challenging and give you as much of a workout as you wish to set up for yourself. Oak Creek Canyon is one of the most beautiful and sought after trails-and one of my favorites.

• I love the sunrises and the sunsets. We have some of the most beautiful sunrises and sunsets in the world. When the time comes for sunset you find standing room only on Airport Mesa lookout point.

• Our sunsets are quoted as being the most breath taking and inspirational experiences in the world. Arizona's spectacular sunsets reach their pinnacle here. If you don't like the crowds at the airport lookout, try on the patio at Canyon Breeze restaurant. Another less-crowded alternative is the first turnout going up the hill on Schnebly Road.

• I love the vortex sites. Another natural wonder of the world. Because of the high iron content and the high crystalline content of the limestone white rocks the combination of rock formations form a natural magnetic vortex energy.

• The energy of the sites, are easy for me, as I have been a practicing energy healer for almost thirty years. Some people feel the energy and others consider it new age woo-woo. But most agree that they feel a special peace in Sedona that they have not experienced anywhere else. The beauty along with the peaceful feeling have a large percentage of the people who visit Sedona considering making it their home.

Put Sedona on your vision board as your next spiritual vacation. Imagine surrounding yourself in the beauty of Sedona and returning to your life refreshed with your body, mind and spirit renewed.

Need Inner Peace~Retreat In the Moment

Retreat is a necessity in our world today. Weather disasters, economic concerns, and the stress of everyday life. You can retreat no matter where you are or what is happening and reclaim inner peace.

Create a refuge in your mind and experience inner peace 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.

1. Decide on a symbol or picture that creates inner peace for you. When I want to feel peace, I visualize a place in nature that I love. When I visualize this place I also hold the feeling of peace. Each time I visit my "peaceful place" and hold the feeling of peace, I deepen my ability to feel "inner peace".

2. Each time you notice yourself feeling stress or fearing or worrying. Hit the delete button and visit your peaceful place. With each visit in the moment you will experience more and deeper "inner peace".

3. Fear and worry deplete your energy and create stress hormones that create disease. With consistent practice you can change your "stress habits" to a "peace habit". Once you can see your peaceful place, and feel "inner peace" add the feeling of gratitude for having this beautiful and peaceful place. As you hold the feeling of peace, say an anchor phrase (I choose to feel peace now), see your peaceful place, and hold the feeling of gratitude. Take five long deep breaths. Feel all the cells, and atoms of your body bathed in love and light.

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. Below Kim and Preston share their experience from her retreat. You can see that they reconnected with inner peace and gained an ability to calm their mind and emotions. We would love to share the healing energy of Sedona with you.
