Is your comfort zone a war zone?

video
Are you addicted to drama and pain? Did your childhood create cycles and patterns for the chemicals connected to pain, drama and fighting? Running away, shutting down, or trying a new partner can't change these patterns. As a child you may have learned to shutdown your heart and emotions as a way to gain control, and these patterns and habits feel normal yet push love away. and often end in divorce. Our couples retreats empower you with tools for communication, teach you how to let go of emotional hurt and pain, and assist each partner to open their heart and share their love. Through the end of the year each retreat includes a copy of award winning Love's Secret Live Your Life In Love.


Follow these tips from Love's Secret to stop fighting and make love.

1.Fighting over the same issues? Keep shutting down and stuffing your feelings? This habit results in an explosion of hurtful words and pushing each other away. Stop. Take a deep breath. Hold a vision of a beautiful pick rose. Allow the rose to absorb all the hurt and pain. Let it all go. Breath in the love offered by the rose and allow it to bath all your cells and fill your heart.

2. EFT or Emotional Freedom empowers you with tools to heal your past hurt and trauma and stop toxic fighting patterns. Realize, that each of you are triggered and reacting from past hurt and trauma. Until you heal the stuck hurt and trauma, it will continue to be brought to the surface to be healed and released. Remind yourself that love and connection are your intention and let the old hurt go. Hurt and pain may feel normal, (like an itch that begs to be scratched), but be strong and let it go.

3. Make a commitment to love, by agreeing on a word used as a signal to stop the fight. 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 is over, 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. Each time you choose love over fighting you will feel more and more freedom from the past.

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. I offer both phone sessions and skype sessions individually and to couples.

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 relationship issues, core issues, stop smoking and weight loss. Gift yourself lasting love, invest in a #couples retreat or #personal healing retreat and gift yourself with inner peace and happiness. a couples retreat is a gift of lasting love.

Retreat from fast food and retrain your taste buds

Quinoa Garden Tabbouleh Salad

I grew up on 150 acres in Tn. Summertime brings back lots of memories of the truck patches that we farmed, and all the fresh produce that we ate during summer. Tabbouleh is traditionally made with wheat but my new favorite version is Quinoa. Quinoa (pronounced keen wah) has all the amino acids and is a complete protein. It is very filling and gives you lots of energy. The plants on top are basil and purslane. Purslane is a weed that grows in my garden and is a vegetable source for omega fatty acids. So try my Tabbouleh Garden salad and let me know how you like it.

2 medium size fresh tomatoes
1 medium size cucumber
2-3 sprigs of fresh basil
2 sprigs of fresh mint
2-3 cups of cooked Quinoa(trio of red, white, and black are my fav)
2-3 tbsps organic apple cider vinegar or Balsamic (I switch back and forth)
1 tbsp celtic sea salt
2 large leaves of Chard cut fine
2 large leaves of Kale cut fine
1/4 cup purslane (my new favorite source of vit c, vit E and plant omega 3 and lots of minerals including magnesium)
2 tbsp organic olive oil
Handful of pine nuts

Mix this all together and add salt or vinegar to taste. Anyone care to guess what the flowers are? Enjoy and leave me a comment with your favorite garden recipe. Have you discovered Purslane yet? It may be growing wild in your garden or your yard. It is a natural plant source of vit C, vit E, and Omega 3. Let me know if you need seeds. It is very prolific.

Have you made your trip to Sedona Arizona yet? We offer year round retreats and we would love to be your #Spiritual #Retreat guide to #Sedona.

#Couples Retreat In Sedona to Reconnect to Love

#Retreat and Heal give couples tools to reconnect with their heart connection. Couples start their relationships in euphoric love, high hopes and positive expectations for their dream romance. Fighting and pulling away are never part of the dream. Yet, old patterns from the past surface and seem stronger than any dreams and take over. Most couples who come to Sedona for our retreats find themselves stuck in hurt and pain without tools to heal. Our retreats empower couples to reconnect to love.

Commit to love by creating a vision of what you want in your relationship and open your heart to your vision. Each partner creates a vision of what is wanted in their relationship then co-create a vision from the two visions. This gets both partner current and committed to love. When each partner feels heard and understood the relationships is released from the toxic patterns of the past.

Compassionate communication empowers each partner to speak up and compassionately share what they are feeling and ask for what they want. Through speaking up each person learns to keep their hearts open while keeping compassion and commitment alive. For the past eleven years our couples move from feeling stuck to feeling deeply in love with their partners.

The next step is to keep your heart open and ask for what you want. Invest daily into your relationship account by smiling and holding your vision. EFT, hypnotherapy, energy medicine, shamanic healing, sacred vortex tools, all part of our couples retreat based on your needs. Invest in your relationship by scheduling a retreat and reconnect to love.

Retreat to Create Balance and Harmony in body, mind, and spirit

#Retreat and Heal empowers you with tools to heal body, mind, and spirit. Are you feeling off balance and out of touch? Follow these tips to boost your immune system and turn on your healing light. In our retreats we teach Reiki, and EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique)
and help each retreat guest connect with their inner healing energy. Reiki is a tool to clear stress and old emotional baggage. Follow these tips to connect with your "inner healer."

1. Spend time in the sun each day without sun screen, and without sun shades. This boost your ability to absorb vitamin D. Spend 15-20 minutes early in the day before 10 am.

2. Smile and hold the feeling of gratitude. When you are smiling and breathing you can't be in the past (anger and regret) or in the future (fear and anxiety).

3. Drink at least eight glasses of water. Bless your water before drinking it and ask it to cleanse the toxins from your system. Hum and send love to all your community of cells.

4. Decide a "inner peace" anchor. This can be a rose, sunflower, or even a rainbow. Anything that you value and has meaning. Each time you feel the old habit of "stinking thinking", stop and see your anchor and take three breaths, smile and fill your cells and heart with love. The more your practice the easier it gets and the more you begin to smile throughout the day. You create a vicious snow ball effect for more self love and health.

5. Practice "Faith" and positive expectancy. As a child we sometimes created the habit of thinking the worst as a way of protecting ourselves and preparing for the worst. Begin each day by visualizing the very best day possible and then hold gratitude for a good day.

6. Our Sedona Retreats give you tools to release your stress and learn new ways to connect with inner peace.

Follow these simple daily rituals to stay healthy and boost your immune system. Retreat and Heal offers retreats year round that empower guests to embrace their inner healing energies, create inner peace, and clear away emotional baggage. We look forward to meeting you in #Sedona, Arizona one of the most beautiful places on earth to #retreat and heal.

Retreat to create Wholeness in Body, Mind, and Spirit

#Retreat from your stress habit and create balance and wholeness. Is stress and stressful thinking a habit for you? Do you cycle between thinking the worst? Find yourself angry at the negative thoughts; yet find yourself helpless to change your negative thinking? Many of our guest arrive feeling overwhelmed with their negative thoughts and emotions; and leave feel alive and renewed.

#Sedona wellness retreats help you refocus and create inner peace and spiritual connection. Your journey starts by waking up and becoming mindful. Suffering from feeling emotionally overwhelmed leads to insomnia, headaches, body aches and pain and other physical issues when ignored. The journey to balance begins with the desire and commitment to change bad habits that have created disconnection and overwhelm with healthy habits. Begin a health journal and make a commitment to these habits for a month and notice the change.

1. Start today with a smile. You might think that you don't have anything to smile about-but go ahead and try it for seven days. Think about things that you like to smile about. Research has shown that smiling can change your brain chemistry and begin creating the Law of Attraction; and you will begin to attract more to smile about.

2. Ways to release over-whelm? EFT also known as Emotional Freedom Technique is performed by tapping on energy meridians that traverse the body. The tapping acts to move and rid the body of uncompleted emotional energy that become major contributors to depression and overwhelm.

3. What symptoms can you use EFT to release? EFT has been used to release energy and symptoms associated with low back pain, headaches, and even more chronic dis-ease. It can be learned and applied for self treatment or you can receive a treatment from a practitioner. Both can be equally effective. EFT can also be applied to rid the mind of subconscious patterns and belief systems that create habits and addictions.

4. How often do you need to apply EFT to be effective? This will vary. Sometimes you will get immediate relief of symptoms. Other times you will remove one layer and then need to apply again within the same day or the next day and remove a deeper layer of emotions to go deeper to the core issue.

5. EFT has been used to quit smoking, release weight, stop sugar cravings and most cravings and urges, including serious addictions. It can be a key to unlock the hidden emotions that cause chronic depression and other nervous disorders including anxiety and panic attacks. It has been called the emotional energy cleanser and also the "miracle worker".

The most wonderful news is that you can learn this amazing self-help tool and apply it daily to release stress and bring your body back to health no matter what your symptoms.

#EFT Retreats to Retrain Your Brain-Easy Neuroplasticity

#Sedona retreats help you refocus and create new wiring for your brain. Many of our guests say that they feel stuck and disconnected spiritually. Your journey starts by feeling that deep longing inside for connection to God or Divine Source. Suffering from feeling overwhelmed? Can't sleep? The journey to balance begins with the desire and commitment to change bad habits that have created disconnection and overwhelm with healthy habits.

1. Start today with Meditation for seven days. Start with an easy to learn meditation. Just take long deep breaths and focus on your breath. Each time your mind wanders or starts to "think" of the past or the future, bring yourself back to the breath. Start with five minutes of focus. Each day extend the time by a minute. By the seventh day you will be up to 11 minutes of focus. The next week add in a smile to your focus. Breath deeply first expand your abdomen, then expand your rib cage, next expand your chest and bring the breath all the way up to your clavicles. When you focus on the breath, your smile and expanding your capacity to take in more oxygen; not only is it good for your metabolism, it also helps the body absorb more oxygen and then become more calm and focused. Throughout the day, use the smile to reset to feeling calm, relaxed and focused. New NeuroPlasticity Research shows that smiling changes your brain chemistry; creating more uplifting endorphins, and is more effective than anti-depressants. It is also cheaper and has no side effects.

2. As you become more proficient at meditation. After a month of practice. Add in the focus of your vision. What do you want in your life? If you are looking to create more clarity on what you want. At the end of your meditation or during it just hold a vision of your self happy with a smile and hold the feeling of doing work that you love and with a life partner that you love.

3. Next start a manifesting journal. Inside this journal create pages with pictures of you with everything you want in your life. Create pages to write at least one affirmation each day. Ie: I love my new work that pays well, with team players that are encouraging, kind, and supportive. I love my relationship with my life partner that is loving, kind and supportive. I love my life and I love feeling accomplished, fulfilled with a good flow of abundance in my life. I love having a good amount of money left in my bank account at the end of each month. I love feeling in the flow with my life.

4. When practicing affirmations, always be aware of cleansing. Sometimes as a result of practicing affirmations, you might get a cleansing reaction similar to eating healthy and having flu like symptoms as old toxins clean out. This could be experienced as fear or a feeling of lack even-though you have plenty of money. Rather than deny it write about it and perhaps do some EFT tapping on the feelings that come up. Give me a call for a phone session if a major core issue around money comes up.

5. EFT is very effective at find deep core issues around money and work. Take a look here for my EFT work book.

The most wonderful news is that you can learn this amazing self-help tool and apply it daily to release money issues that create stress and bring your body back to health, and create a healthy bank account, no matter what your symptoms.

Moms Retreat to Honor Motherhood

Retreats are a great way to honor the mother or grandmother in your life. Moms give without thinking of the return. Many have a day that starts with sun up and doesn't end with the setting sun. Here are some tips to give back to Mom.

1. Have #mom retreat and listen to relaxing music to release her stress and reconnect to inner peace. During her #relaxing break light a candle and have her focus on the healing light of the candle and allow the healing energy to clear her stress.

2.While #mom is relaxing, run a warm tub of water and add two drops neroli, two drops lavendar, and two drops of clary sage; mix in a tablespoon of honey. Honey is a good carrier for #essential oils and helps it mix with the water. Swirl this into the tub, turn off all phones, ipads, all outside distrations, and have mom relax and let go.

We would love to #pamper you and your mom. Let us create a #mother daughter retreat just for the two of you. We have created special retreats for eleven years.

#Retreat from your life and create balance. Is your life out of balance? Is constant chaos and drama a habit? What would it take to shift those habits and create balance? Our sedona retreats are filled with tools to resolve old patterns and habits. Include these tools in your life and create balance in your life.

1. Create a balance wheel and take a look at how balanced your life is. In this wheel give a slice to work, family, friends and time for yourself. What needs to shift? Get our life evaluation quiz free and determine where your life needs more balance.

2. Meditation is a great way to get in touch with your inner voice and inner wisdom. Meditation can help you to clear your inner chaos and create a quiet mind. Our favorite meditation at Retreat and Heal is a walking meditation at the Tibetan Stupa. Meditation is easier when you start with active practices like yoga, tai chi, walking, or pranayama(controlled breathing). Next sit, for at least fifteen minutes and concentrate on your breath.

3. Visualization is the next on the list for creating what you want once you have cleared your mind. Tear pictures from a magazine and post them on your vision board. Put pictures that represent your dreams. Next create an action plan to create what you want. Spiritual Life Coaching is a wonderful way to create your action plan and put it into a manageable plan to make it reality.

Today I am grateful for balance in my life. I hold gratitude in my heart for the ability to make choices that create balance and peace in my life.

#Retreat and #Release Toxic Habits and Emotions


#Retreat to release emotional pain and trauma. Most people have had trauma in their life as a child and sometimes remember and often don't remember but seem to experience patterns of trauma and emotional pain. How do you release these patterns from your life? EFT and Hypnotherapy are effective tools to release emotional pain and trauma. What is EFT? Emotional Freedom Technique is an effective software for releasing emotional pain and patterns.

Emotions are the end product of past event or experiences. When you change your emotions then you can change your experiences. Transformation happens quickly when
we release the addiction to the chemicals that emotions create.

At the core of every symptom there is an emotion that causes our body to react in that way. Body speaks the mind. Neuropeptides secret the chemicals of the emotions that you are experiencing outside inside your body, blood, and cells. The chemicals released by anger, stress, worry and fear flood our body with toxic stress chemicals that block our body's natural ability to create endorphins of happiness and peace.

Meditation is a great place to change the emotions and create new chemical reactions in your body.
Health, healing, happiness, and spiritual growth are the focus for our retreats. Your journey starts with wanting to get healthy. Suffering from high blood pressure? Insomnia? Overweight?

Retreat to Stop Fighting and Make Love

#Retreat from your "habits that push love away" and create love. Is your relationship stuck in toxic "habits"? 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 breathe, smile and hold a vision of your partner in a loving embrace.

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.

#Retreat to Advance Toward Your Dreams

#Retreat and gather tools to attract what you want in your life. Are your frustrated with how the law of attraction is working in your life? My dreams were not manifesting in my life for many years no matter how hard I visualized and said my affirmations. As a matter of fact Louise Hay was at our "grand opening" of our school and clinic in California. Yet, I continued to attract and manifest some of my worst night mares and fears. Until I studied EFT or Emotional Freedom and learned to clear away the fears that blocked my dreams. I knew there was more to life than surviving, but I didn't know how to apply my talents and gifts to live my life purpose. Here are the steps I took to clear my fears and beliefs, that blocked my purpose, and passion.

1. The first and most powerful step is to get clear on where you are. I had a mantra (short phrase I repeated to myself) who am I, where am I, and what is my purpose here? I did this for several months throughout my day. This serves two purposes. First it keeps your "inner critic" quiet and takes your inner talk off "auto-pilot." It also keeps you focused on your intention to find your purpose.

2. Create times to breath consciously and listen inside. This means that you must create the ability to be still. For most of us in this hurry-worry world this is our biggest challenge. Our mind is racing from appointment to appointment, and focusing on what is next on our calendar. Top habits to finding your purpose, passion, and taking charge of your power, is your breath and a quiet mind.

3. Keep focused on your intention and stay present. In rushing through life it is easy to loose focus and thus loose your connection to the Divine. When we maintain our connection to our spiritual essence, we are connected to our purpose, passion, and our power. Schedule time into your calendar for spiritual renewal. A spiritual retreat once a year is a great source to renew your body, mind and spirit, and master the law of attraction.

Need clarity to find your purpose, and master the law of attraction?  When you feel stuck and can't make yourself focus on "inner work", it might mean that you need some gentle help. We offer a safe place to retreat and heal.

#Retreat and Heal offers #couples retreats with tools to reconnect heart connections. Couples enter relationships with high hopes and positive expectations for their dream romance. Fighting and pulling away are never part of the dream. Yet, old patterns from the past surface and seem stronger than any dreams and take over. Most couples who come to #Sedona for our retreats find themselves stuck in hurt and pain without tools to heal. Our #couples retreats empower couples to reconnect to love.

Reconnect to love by creating a vision of what you want in your relationship and commit your heart to your vision. Each partner creates a vision of what is wanted in the relationship then co-create a vision from the two visions.

Compassionate communication empowers each partner to speak up and compassionately ask for what they want. Through speaking up each person learns to keep their compassion and commitment alive. Our retreat couples learn to stay current with their emotions and speak up and ask for what they want.

The next step is to keep your heart open and ask for what you want.  Invest daily into your relationship account by smiling and holding your vision. #EFT,# hypnotherapy, #energy medicine, #shamanic healing, #sacred vortex ceremonies, are all part of our #couples retreat based on your needs. Invest in your relationship by scheduling a special #retreat and reconnect to love.
