Breathing and Meditation, Learning How in a Personal Retreat

Breathing and Meditation, Learning How in a Personal Retreat

Meditation and breathing have become a critical part of my personal retreats because of the advantages they produce.

Breathing and Meditation, Learning How in a Personal Retreat

In my personal retreats a very important element is meditation. There are many different ways to meditate. Some of my favorites are transcendental meditation; verbalizing a mantra or primordial sound, diaphragm breathing or focusing on an item and bringing your mind back to your breath whenever it is thinking or visualization meditation.

The benefits of meditation:

  • Reduces stress
  • Improves concentration
  • Slows aging
  • Create a healthy lifestyle
  • Increases self-awareness
  • Increases joy and happiness
  • Benefits cardiovascular and immune health
  • Increases patience
  • Helps with sleep
  • Increases energy
  • Aids in digestion
  • Better circulation

These are just a few advantages of deliberate reflection. One of the meditations I like and believe to be one of the most beneficial is concentrating on our breathing. While we are breathing making sure we are breathing from our diaphragm not our chest. I have been reading a lot about the benefits of oxygen in our system and what I noticed was that I was breathing wrong probably 50% of the time.

Breathing properly allows for proper oxygen flow, so during meditation it’s important to pay attention to your breathing, making sure your breathing through your diaphragm not your chest. If you have been breathing through your chest it will take some time to train yourself to breathe your diaphragm. The benefits of meditating while breathing through our diaphragm are twofold. We will get all the benefits of meditation and also get the benefits of creating more oxygen in our system.

In many of my retreats teaching meditation is a critical part to calming the nervous system down so that my client can be in a more relaxed state to see her situation. Meditation along with learning how to breathe properly supports a healthy, happy life. My personal retreats will help you create a more peaceful life.

I have helped many clients learn to more at peace. If you want to get more information about my personal retreats give me a call or Click HERE to schedule your free consult. Or call me at 928-300-0447

Having a Holy Relationship Through a Couples Retreat

Having a Holy Relationship Through a Couples Retreat

Having a Holy Relationship Through a Couples RetreatWhat would it look like to be more connected to yourself and your partner?

Something I hear from clients a lot is that they want a deeper relationship with their partner or they aren’t willing to go into a relationship unless it offers some depth.

I personally have been in a few relationships that were fun and I learned a lot about myself, but they weren’t holy. I love what Marianne Williamson says about the Holy relationship.

 

 

Relationships are hospitals for the sole.
Stuff comes up when we are unhealed.
Can we be better versions of ourselves?
Can we have compassion?
Relationships are assignments for maximum growth.
A holy and wholey relationship you take responsibility for yourself.
In a wholey relationship you all ready know you are
complete in who you are.
Sometimes they have the most to teach us.

I love this because what it is saying is that if I am whole as a person, owning my own woundedness and triggers, and know that I am okay without a partner, then and only then can I enter into a holy relationship.

The purpose of relationship is to evolve, to grow to become the best version of yourself. Primary relationships bring up all of our unhealed wounds. If we aren’t willing to look at our self and do the work necessary, it will be impossible to take it to the next level in a relationship. The intensity of being in partnership may be way too much if you haven’t done the basic work on your self. If you have been working a bit on yourself it will be easier to do the work while in a partnership.

I have worked with many couple in my Couples Retreat where one partner has done a fair amount of work and the other hasn’t and the retreat helps them shift into doing more work on themselves and therefore being able to do deeper work together.

Just being in relationship brings up all of our deep trauma because that’s what Spirit wants for us. Spirit wants us to become wholey and heal, so if you are in a relationship that pushes your buttons, that’s where you need to be. Everything in our life is for the purpose of healing.

If you are in a relationship where you have conflict or you’re just not connecting, my couples retreat may be a great opportunity for you both to do your individual work and your deeper work as a couple.

I have helped many couples find their way back to love. If you want to get more information about having a whole/holy relationship give me a call or Click HERE to schedule your free consult. Or call me at 928-300-0447

Stepping Back To Get The Answers. Learn How in a Personal Retreat

Stepping Back To Get The Answers. Learn How in a Personal Retreat

When we step back and do our spiritual work first to get the answers, the answers will come from love and it usually is a win win situation.

Sometimes we get so wrapped up in the situation that it’s hard to get the answers we need while swirling around in the drama. Have you ever been in a situation where you’re in this fight or flight and you can’t see the forest through the trees? This is what happens when we put our attention on the situation instead of going inside with our feelings.

Most of the time it takes us stepping outside of the situation, and just breathing to really see what’s going on. There are always signals whether it be mental, emotional or physical that let us know that we need to slow down, stop and look at what’s going on with inside and not the outside.

I find it impossible to figure things out when I am in the emotional drama of the situation. It’s only when I relax and check in with how I’m feeling, how that inner child is feeling and tend to those feelings before I can look at the outside situation with any maturity.

The first thing I do is to check in with that little girl and her feelings and then I hold her and validate those feelings. I also look at the old beliefs that are attached to those feelings and let her know that those old beliefs are simply not true. Whether it is that I’m not safe in the world, I’m not good enough or I’m not in control. When I have allowed the feelings to be there and nurtured that part of myself I notice a calm come in. It is only after I do this part that I can really look at any situation from my higher more mature self.

If you do not have a daily practice that reminds you to check in with this part of yourself daily, you will go on autopilot and just act out of that fight or flight place which is your ego mind. If we are acting out of that ego mind we will usually cause a bit of a shit storm.

If I’m in the habit of checking in with myself through my emotional body first I am more apt to not act out my frenetic ego mind that is in a panic. After I have calmed the emotional body down I will be able to make these decisions from a more peaceful place inside me.

If you want to start making decisions, calmer place and you please Check out my Sedona Soul Retrieval Retreat or give me a call or Click HERE to schedule your free consult. Or call me at 928-300-0447

Raising Boys To Be Good Men, Sedona Soul Retreats

Raising Boys To Be Good Men, Sedona Soul Retreats

Can we raise boys to be good men? Raising Boys To Be Good Men

Learning how to be a good man first at Sedona Soul Retreats, might be a good start.

As parents or grandparents do we have a responsibility to teach boys certain things to guarantee they develop into good men? It’s funny because a friend of mine has 2 boys and I remember thinking how lucky she was not to be raising girls, like me. Now, when I think about the responsibilities of raising boys in this environment that we live in, it seems like a bigger task. I mentor teens and parents and I’m shocked at the lack of guidance there is around boys.

As parents you don’t just have the worry about getting a girl pregnant, you should be concerned with how he is learning how to honor and respect women. With the political situation the way it is today, I’m afraid that boys are learning more about using girls than respecting them.

This is a call out to anyone influencing young boys, whether it is parents, grandparents, educators, or mentors, we have to know our responsibilities to the boys, especially fathers or other male role models.

We need your help to raise up good, respectful boys. I challenge you to look at where you might have opportunities to influence a young boy. If you are thinking that I should also be addressing young girls, well, I do, with every blog that I write. It is mostly guiding teen girls. Even though I don’t market to boys or men, I see a fair amount of them and I know how important they are.

Here are some key points to raising conscious, respectful, self-aware boys.

Teach Them:

  • What the importance of a relationship is.
  • How special girls/women are.
  • How special people are.
  • How their behaviors affect the world.
  • How to communicate face to face.
  • How sacred sex is.
  • How to honor and treat girls with respect.
  • Ask them what they want in life and how they are going to achieve it.
  • Respect yourself!

 

These tips could also be directed at girls. I would have never thought that I would see such a gap between my daughters age 40 and teens, but there is. Possibly the biggest gap there has ever been. I believe parents and educators are totally baffled by what to do with educating teens on life skills because it feels like it has gone past the point of no return.

It’s going to take the conscious adults to get busy and guide these teens and for parents to start setting limits, even though none of the other parents are willing to. I feel like this is a serious matter and will only get worse if we don’t address it. So, I am hoping that anyone with influence will take a stand.

If you are looking to become a better man so you can guide your teenage son, Check out my Sedona Soul Retrieval Retreat or give me a call or Click HERE to schedule your free consult. Or call me at 928-300-0447

Honoring Your Inner Knowing, Learn How in a Sedona Retreat  

Honoring Your Inner Knowing, Learn How in a Sedona Retreat  

Honoring Your Inner KnowingDo you  know yourself well enough to listen to your Inner Knowing, This is the essence of my work during your Sedona Retreat with me.

As long as I can remember, I have had this inner feeling of knowing. It has taken me a long time to learn how to tune into this place and listen. I used to get the feeling inside my body of just being off and instead of tuning in and seeing where that awfulness came from I would just make a decision without going inward.

We have inside of us this wisdom that we could not unlearn if we wanted to, although we need to learn how to tap into this knowing. If we could just be present with how we are feeling at every given moment we would find our answers right inside of us. The problem is that if we are on autopilot, moving through our day without tapping into that inner knowing we will be making all of our decisions from an unconscious place.

It is so important that we value this wise place our self.

This inner knowing is never swayed by outside influences, which means it will never ask us to go against our value system. Usually when we have an uneasy feeling inside, looking at that feeling and where it comes from we will see that a decision is on the table that might be out of alignment with who we are. We have this beautiful barometer right inside of us in regards to our life, it’s just sometimes we don’t utilize it.

When we are unsure about a decision we have to make, trusting someone, or knowing how we should respond to someone, we can find the answers right inside of us. If we can just get still for a moment and go inward it’s amazing how clear things are.

I Remember when I was in my 20s and early 30s how I would always turn to others to help me make decisions in my life. Not just big decisions but a lot of my decisions. It wasn’t until I learned to sink into this inner knowing and start making those decisions through that place instead of on my own or by listening to someone else.

In my Sedona retreat, I will teach you how to know yourself so well that it will be natural to allow that inner knowing to step in and make decisions. When we start listening to this inner knowing the world opens up to us in a more expansive way and we can recognize our true potential in this life.

If you are looking to tap into your inner knowing and live in your higher self, Check out my Sedona Soul Retrieval Retreat or give me a call or Click HERE to schedule your free consult. Or call me at 928-300-0447

Letting Go of Regret and Sorrow in a Sedona Retreat

Letting Go of Regret and Sorrow in a Sedona Retreat

Letting Go of Regret and Sorrow in a Sedona RetreatHow often are you having regret and would like to learn about it in a Sedona Retreat?

How many things in your life can you look back on a say “If I would have done that differently, it would have been way better?” If you would have sold your house a year earlier, bought investment property when the market was low, communicated better on a previous relationship, or maybe not spent money on a certain item. The list can go on and on.

When we live in regret we are living in the past. It doesn’t leave room for being in the present moment at all. It is tough enough to have enough energy to be here in this moment without constantly having the past nag us. If we are always giving energy to a past experience, we won’t have much to give to the present moment.

Forgiveness is key to letting go of regret. If we can forgive others and our selves, we won’t have anything to regret. Forgiving our self for not knowing about the market to make better financial decisions, forgiving our self for our communication skills not being the best and understand that we are human, living in an unpredictable life. Always giving ourselves some leeway to make mistakes and learn from them, knowing we will.

This way regret looks different. It looks more like gratitude for a learning to move forward in a more conscious way in the future. We can see it differently. Instead of something that happened that was bad, it could be an experience to teach us. Once we have learned from it, we can go on to help others learn from similar situations.

I think it’s important to always be looking at what our mind is telling us. Usually it is her mind that is caught up in regret. In my Sedona retreat you will learn how to forgive, how to eliminate regret and how to live in the present moment. By keeping our mind in this moment and not in the past or the future allows us to have enough energy for our physical and emotional healing and well being in this moment.

If you are looking for a way to see life differently through the eyes of your higher self,become more empowered and let go of regret, Check out my Sedona Soul Retrieval Retreat or give me a call or Click HERE to schedule your free consult. Or call me at 928-300-0447
