May 2014: Are you sick and tired of being sick and tired?
Stop acting as if life is a rehearsal. Live this day as if it were your last. The past is over and gone. The future is not guaranteed – Wayne Dyer
Have you ever found yourself slipping into endurance mode and going through the motions to “get through” today’s to do list? Only to realize later that you have put your daughter’s dance recital, lunch with your parents and date night with your spouse into the same “must do” category, all the while, secretly willing the day to be over so you can curl up in bed and sleep? Amidst guilt, shame and growing angst, you wonder when all of your “want to´s” turned into “have to´s”
If you resonate with this, take a few deep breaths and know that it is normal to slip into this mindset on occasion, although critical to snap out of it as soon as possible, before it becomes a permanent mindset and you sink into depression.
To find the joy in every moment and transform drudgery days into making the most of each day, it helps to keep in mind that each day can only be lived once and once lived (or endured), it is gone forever! Each day is a gift, which is why it is called the present.
From time to time, I ask myself a sobering question – what would I do with my time if I was told that I had one year left to live – 365 precious days before crossing over to the other side and I then take stock of how I am spending my days.
It is so easy to focus on what is wrong in your life – what is boring you, where you don’t have enough or the little irritations that build up! And yet, quite simply when you focus on what is right in your life – things really start turning around.
The first thing one has to do – is decide to shift one’s mindset from: bored, plodding through life; procrastination and endurance to being present, looking for the joy in every moment and when you pay attention to detail on the little things in life – the big things tend to take care of themselves. The universal law of attraction (like attracts like) is true in all aspects of life, and when you focus on being grateful for what you do have, you attract more to be grateful for.
Spend a few minutes each morning thinking about your day ahead and finding 5 things that you are most looking forward to. Then at the end of the day, as you are going to sleep, find the 5 things from that day you are the most grateful for. Just this simple act will move you into a mindset of grace, humility and joy and before you know it, life becomes easier, more exciting and magical.
I would love to hear how this impacts on your life so please drop me a note in the comments section below and wishing you a wonderful month ahead!
Let your dreams be bigger than your fears, your actions louder than your words and your faith stronger than your feelings.
Love and blessings
Spiritual Quest Journeys
Spiritual Sites with Spiritual Quest Journeys
Since ancient times, sacred sites all over the world have had a mysterious allure for millions of people, drawn to their unexplained power and presence. Sacred sites have the power to heal the body, enlighten the mind and awaken the soul with endless accounts of life-changing and profound experiences as testament. This newsletter feature endeavours to share interesting information on sacred sites and inspire you to experience them for yourself.
Secrets of the Ancients – Peru & Bolivia
This month’s focus is on Peru and Bolivia. Our journey runs from the 15 – 29 August and explores the Andean Master Path – the wisdom path of the ancestors and a union of the heart and mind.
The Andes is one of the greatest cultural and spiritual centres currently on our planet and as with all Spiritual Quest Journeys, this tour covers the outer physical journey as well as a profound inner journey.
There are 4 exceptional Journey Leaders to support and facilitate your inner journey – firstly: our local guide is world famous indigenous guide Mallku, the foremost expert on the sacred Andean tradition. He has co-authored and authored a number of books, which have earned him well-deserved recognition, and his discoveries are taught by most of the local Peruvian guides. Mallku will lead the group through ceremonies, meditations, offerings and rituals as well as sharing secret knowledge at the sites themselves.
Our second Journey Leader is Linda Jordaan from South Africa who has travelled extensively in Peru and was initiated as an Andean Shaman in 2009. I first met Linda on a pilgrimage around Glastonbury, Avebury and Stonehenge in 2006. Linda has been to Peru many times over the years and currently practices as a shaman, mentor and teacher of the Sacred Andean tradition. She also works as a traditional healer, spiritual counsellor, Metaphysical teacher, Munay-Ki teacher and facilitator of Lightarian Institute attunements.
Mallku and Linda are joined by the award-winning authors of “One Great Year”: Tamara Veitch and Rene DeFazio. This incredible book is set in the sacred sites of Bolivia, Peru, Greece, Egypt and Mongolia and whilst they have travelled the world researching, filming and speaking – this is their first of many Spiritual Quest Journeys. Their book, “One Great Year” is the first book of a trilogy and has been called Enlightenment through entertainment – if you haven’t read it yet, do yourself a favour and get it as soon as possible or just book onto this tour as every participant will be receiving an autographed book as a gift before departure. I will also be including one free intuitive soul reading, which is valued at US$ 120 for each of the participants to assist in preparing each person for the journey.
Can you just imagine the incredible conversations around the dinner tables? This journey really is a true gift to self in every way.
The 15 day itinerary covers all the must-see spots – we spend 2 nights in Lima (where you fly into and from there visit Pachakamaq); 2 nights in Urubamba Valley (AKA the Sacred Valley) and where you visit Chinchero Ruins and Ollantaytambo); 1 night in Aguas Calientes, the town close to Machu Picchu where you get ample time to explore the Crystal City; 4 nights in Cusco (the naval of Peru, from where you visit Tipon and Sacsaywaman); 3 nights in Puno close to Lake Titicaca on the Peruvian side; 1 night at Lake Titicaca in Bolvia to visit Tiwanaku and 1 night on Amantani island on the Peruvian side of lake Titicaca.. This night promises to be a highlight as you spend the day and night with the local families on the Island, share their local cuisine and stay with the families in their home.

Where are you going in 2014?
In a world where we are overwhelmed by the constant bombardment of technology, responsibilities and relentless pursuit of our goals, it is critical that we regularly take some time to step back from our day to day lives and objectively reassess where we are on our life path, who we have become, and more importantly, who we choose to be in the future.
At Spiritual Quest Journeys, we believe that there is no better way to do this, than to explore both our outer and inner worlds. Our spiritual tours explore ancient sacred sites, mystical and magical locations, fascinating places, holistic wellness centers and retreats around the world. Most importantly, we recognize that time away is hard earned vacation time and our tours are imbued with a sense of excitement, adventure and fun.
As spiritual travelers ourselves, we acknowledge the importance of a well balanced tourism offering, and each itinerary is carefully designed to offer a subtle blend of seamless destination management; interconnectedness with the earth, exploration of the area and culture; personal development, relaxation and integration time; ceremonies and meditation; group consciousness support and guidance; and something unique and exclusive. In essence, unique travel experiences that an individual would be hard pressed to create on their own.
So if you are waiting to exhale or looking for an amazing life changing experience, explore our website or contact us.

Intuitive Coaching Sessions
“I went into my intuitive soul reading session with Peta feeling a mixture of excitement and trepidation.
Excitement of being familiar with Peta’s spiritual work and interests over many years…and trepidation because I had never done anything like this before.
What happened in the next hour changed my life completely!
Our session identified and shifted a problem area that was affecting me in small negative ways each day.
Only after the session, have I realised how much my “old” beliefs were bringing me down on a subconscious level
I now feel lighter and much more positive about myself and my surrounds, and I look at situations from a completely different angle which I couldn’t quite do before my session with Peta. I cant wait for the next one!”

Are you Stuck? Is there something holding you back, blocking you from stepping into your full potential or are you sick and tired of being sick and tired?
The quickest way to identify your blocks is to notice what triggers you (pushes your buttons). These blocks are trapped pain or an unresolved issue and cause us pain and limitation. As every-thing is energy, once you identify your blocks and shift the energy, you will find yourself in a neutral space and will no longer be triggered by the issue. There is a direct correlation between the energy we hold and the way we experience life and blocks need to be resolved in order for the physical result to be different.
If you are ready to live fully and in joy, contact Peta for a personal intuitive soul reading. With your permission, Peta will tune into you and look at the energy around the issue. Using various techniques, Peta is able to guide you through a transformational releasing what no longer serves you Sessions are available over skype or in person for US$ 120 per hour.
