Finding the Real Me in Sedona

Ever travel somewhere that feels like home the moment you breathe the air? Then, because of what is happening in your life, your connection to the land is so powerful . . . you know something in you is going to change because of it? That just happened to me.

I just went to Sedona, AZ for a production shoot with my new branding ace, Nita Blum with Blum’s Brandhouse, and experienced a life-changing shift. I had heard stories of the famous vortexes and had always wanted to go but never had the opportunity. Until now.

I have been gearing up to jump to the next level professionally in 2018. I am lighting up like never before and have so much new material igniting through my soul. This is not quiet stuff – it is ground breaking! I want to be very intentional about my path.

Truth is . . . I want to light a bonfire in the world! My soul has been calling out to me and telling me the time is NOW. I desired change, ignition and inspiration. I wanted a trip that would transform and refine me for what was coming my way.

When I looked for lodging weeks before, I asked my guides to help me find a spot that would support my desires. I set the intention of having time alone to ground, meditate and connect with Source and the work I was doing.

In meditation, I asked for the energy surrounding Nita and me to provide the perfect vibe for what we needed to get done. I asked that the time be expanded to fit in all we needed to do and for it to be fun, fluid and easy. I manifested that my dreams would come true, just like you can, every step of the way!

I arrived late Sunday night after driving up from the Phoenix airport. I could not wait for this beautiful drive, but the closer I got, the darker it got. When I finally headed up the hill to the resort, all I saw was blackness. At night, there are no spotlights illuminating the red rocks, but you are sure there is something powerful hiding there in the dark. You could just feel it.
Getting out of my car, I could immediately sense that the air had an incredible intensity to it – clear, ancestral, deep and powerful – definitely a different vibration than I was used to. The staff at The Enchantment Resort told me how much they loved when people came in late to wake up to the magical scenery in the morning. I could not wait.

When I opened my eyes in the morning, my curtains were closed, but I realized there were three little windows at the top of the wall. Through them, I could see the golden glow of the sunrise illuminating the ribboned edges of the rock formations. Springing to my feet like it was Christmas morning, I ran to the sliding glass balcony doors and held my breath.

Pushing back the curtains, my jaw dropped, and I froze. Holy Mother Earth. What I saw and felt was beyond anything I had expected. Nothing prepared me for the intense beauty of these rocks rising out of the ground as the sun washed her fiery glow across them.

Sliding the glass door open, I stepped out into the crisp air and scanned the view with wild wonder. I felt an immediate reverence in my soul and a powerful force communicating with me. I wanted to be closer. I pulled on my hiking shoes and fleece and shortly found myself journeying up into the red rock formations, breathing in her powerful energy.
I prayed. I meditated. I felt a peace about what was happening and what was on its way. I knew I was exactly where I was supposed to be.

Sedona lifted me to a new level of connection with myself, Mother Earth and my purpose at this time in this life. Working with Nita was seamless, and with each moment, things worked out beautifully – just like I had hoped.

When we are in alignment, that is how it happens. We connect with the Divine, our true selves and our purpose ignites with ease and clarity. People, places and inspiration shows up in perfect timing. I felt more authentic, alive and free than I ever had before. And it has kept coming and coming.

I am beyond ecstatic to have this new material coming to you, and I want to thank Sedona, Enchantment and Nita for being the perfect travel mates in this leg of my journey. Nita, specifically, giving me her gift of supporting and igniting the passion inside me like no one has before. The truth is, I was ready for her too, and we met at the perfect time. She helped me to come out of my old shell and show my real self to the world with confidence and strength.

My mission is to help you find the same. I want you to feel this power, intention and freedom to unleash the real you – the you who is here to serve the world. I want to help you find the fire, connection and momentum that I have found!

Just like this trip, I wish for all of us to discover the miracles that are waiting for us so that we can experience a little bit of Sedona in every sunrise. A new glow. A majestic purpose. And an excitement to climb the hills of adventure that are waiting.

Do you yearn for connection to an all-seeing, all-knowing force that will help you find the right path? Do you pray for direction, ask for help and look for signs that you are making the right choices – or that you are simply loved?

Me too! After a lifetime of praying and seeking myself, I have found a way of connecting to Spirit that has elevated everything. My spiritual awakening has taken me into a sacred space where I can directly communicate with my angels, guides and loved ones all on my own. You can too! I am here to offer you this video on how to do it.

10 Questions to Ask Yourself When You Want to Fight Back

“A miracle is a shift in perception from fear to love.” ~Marianne Williamson

Spiritual teaching says that there are truly only two emotions: Fear and Love. Everything is derivative of one or the other at its core. So how do you know when you are not leading with love?

If you think about the times when you have been the most judgmental, defiant or indignant, the real truth is this: you were afraid. That fear may be from some old wound, the scary unknown, or about facing someone that believes very differently than you. The fear might be about being judged, rejected, not loved, betrayed, invalidated, misunderstood, embarrassed or made to feel unworthy.

On days when I am truly connected to the divine, I act differently.

I practice stopping myself when I want to judge and look back on what is stirring my thoughts and turning over in my gut, creating an emotional reaction.
“What am I afraid of in this person?”

If I can see that the root is actually fear of feeling a certain way, I try to rest in that for a moment and recognize where I am. In my best moments, I sit back and reflect before reacting. I look within and pull up old memories and beliefs from my file drawer of Life that feel similar to what is happening there.

Ultimately, I find the person or the experience that this interaction is reminding me of and realize how it is making me feel. This is usually something that hurt me deeply in childhood and a pain that is still wrapped around me like a poisonous vine. If this keeps reoccurring, it is because the lesson has still not been learned – the lesson of self love, acceptance, surrender and not taking things personally. The lesson in staying connected to God and not the circumstances here that try to push me off the cliff.

And when I am my Best Self, I own it. I pull up and away from the situation and realize that this is about something bigger and before now. The feelings are mine and not about the person who is here wronging me – likely unknowingly.

Then I take a deep breath try to find compassion for the person (which, let’s be honest, can sometimes take a while). When I have found a place of neutrality, I recognize that there is an established belief inside their mind that is just as valid as mine. Just as valid for them. Likely also rooted in fear. Maybe different, maybe divergent, but it is theirs. And it is there for a reason.

I tell myself to listen and try to understand their story. Their side. Even if the “rest of the story” remains silent, like the jagged bulk of an iceberg frozen beneath blue waters. Because somewhere in between we must be alike inside of ourselves. We must love something the same way and surely have the same need to be happy and not suffer in this world. We just go about things differently.

What if we all practiced being our Best Selves more often and had better moments of reflection, then reaction. that were not stirred in the pot of fear, but rather basted in love and compassion? The world would be a more beautiful bowl of soup.

Here is a start to finding that place of harmony.

Ask yourself these questions when you feel an emotional reaction to someone:

1) Why do I want to hurt this person right back? Am I afraid of something?

2) Am I feeling betrayed? Disregarded? Unworthy? Unlovable? Rejected? Misunderstood?

3) Does this person have any idea that his/her words are affecting me inside like this?

4) Who does this remind me of? Who also treated me this way and hurt me?

5) Could my reaction be about something in the past more than this right now?

6) Can I wait for a little while before I speak my truth to see if I can neutralize?

7) Can I find it in my heart to consider this person’s past experiences?

8) Could there be a reason that this person is this inconsiderate, unfeeling, selfish or irreverent?

9) Can I remember that he/she has a story too, and maybe there is pain and fear there too?

10) Can I find compassion in my heart for this person . . . just like I need myself?

Can you?

Then do. As often as you can. And, over time, it will become a practice that is rooted in love. Others will experience it, and those who are ready, will be inspired to do the same.

The best part about it, is that love goes out like an echo . . . and comes right back.
