March 2014: Our Journey beyond the Vortex in Sedona 11 – 18 Feb 2014

Undoubtedly one of the most powerful Sacred Sites on our planet, Sedona delights, inspires and shifts all those who visit her. The natural beauty of the red and orange sandstone formations is breathtaking and our incredible Feb journey there, was a perfect balance of the inner and outer journey – adventure, synchronicity, intense activations, personal development, bonding with like-minded people and a deep connection with the Earth, ourselves and each other.

Canadian born, Charlotte Szivak was our Journey Leader. Charlotte is a deeply gifted psychic, dedicated light worker and loads of fun to travel with. This was her 7th visit to Sedona so she guided us to all of the hidden gems with ease. Her activations were incredibly powerful and all of us went through processes, shifts and shadow integration throughout the journey.

Charlotte and I arrived on the night before the group and immediately went to the Airport Mesa, one of the major vortexes to greet and connect to Sedona’s energy, which you can feel as soon as you enter the greater Sedona area. Vortexes are funnel shaped created by the motion of spiraling energy and are similar to the energy found in our bodies so when we come into contact with them, it amplifies all that we are. Couple this natural energy with deep, profound energy processes and activations and the result is complete transformation producing significant and lasting positive changes in your life and the ability to master challenges with greater ease, grace and equanimity. An easy method of identifying where the vortexes are at their strongest is to look at the tree trucks, which are twisted by the vortex energy.

It is understandable that the ancients did not live in Sedona itself but rather in the surrounding areas and then traveled to the sacred sites for ceremony and pilgrimage. The energy is palpable in the centre of town, which can be overwhelming and not conducive to a good nights sleep – one of the many reasons we chose the Hilton Hotel, which is located in Oak Creek. The hotel has magnificent views of the majestic Bell Rock, a powerful yet nurturing vortex, all about physical healing and it was a blessing to rest in its energy at night.

Rising out of the mesa close to the Village of Oak Creek, Bell Rock stands tall as one of the more formidable vortexes in the Sedona area. Because of its topography, Bell Rock is considered an up flow vortex, spiraling energy up through its center radiating empowerment to all who visit and where we did our opening and closing ceremonies.

Besides offering 360 degree views and being the most sought after sunrise and sunset photo spot, The Airport Mesa Vortex (an inflow vortex) was the perfect vortex to release all that no longer served us. The activation here was done as the full moon was rising and we saw a blue unidentified flying object dancing around the moon. Two of us were taking photo after photo of the moon and in every shot, just seconds apart, the blue UFO was in a completely different location!?!

Designed by Marguerite Brunswig Staude, the Chapel of the Holy Cross is beautiful and non‐denominational. It was completed in 1956 after nearly 2 years of construction and ranks as a favorite tourist attraction in the area. It is a masterpiece of simplicity: nestled beautifully into the red rocks and offering breathtaking views of the majestic Cathedral Rock, Bell Rock, Courthouse Butte and the eastern rim of Sedona. The energy of this location is one of the strongest and most easily felt in all of Sedona. The feeling at this site is one of inspiration, joy and gratitude including love, harmony, unity and ONEness with All that is. I loved the figures we could see in the rocks. Most prominent for me was an Eagles head and various faces, including a distinctly alien one.

After a spectacular Sunday brunch at the Enchantment Resort, we ventured into Boynton Canyon where the open topography creates an inflow vortex, cleansing the negative energies of the earth and its people.

After a few days, we realised that we had encountered a Blue Jay every time we were looking for our meditation site and it became great confirmation for us as this continued throughout the journey. In addition to the vortex sites, we enjoyed a sunrise at the Buddhist Stupa, visited the ruins of Palanaki, walked a labyrinth to balance male and female energies and tried to hold ourselves back when shopping in the many crystal and new age shops (not always successfully)

I really love that there is always something unexpected on the journeys and this is why I always say that we will cover every-thing on the itinerary although it may not be in the planned order as we allow room for guidance and synchronicity.

In addition to our planned activities, we were guided to attend an afternoon workshop with Bryan De Flores updating us on the latest Angel information and we were invited to a closed meditation group at the home of Jaap Van Etten, who has been researching Crystal Skulls for over 15 years and has written 2 books on the subject. We meditated with over 300 crystal skulls, which set us up nicely for what was to come…an afternoon with one of the ancient skulls called Einstein.. Carolyn Ford is the caretaker of Einstein and graciously joined us for an afternoon, we shared a Hoóponopono ceremony before a few of us chose to spent some private time with Carolyn and Einstein.

Whist I had heard of the legend of the ancient skulls and have picked up many crystal skulls in various crystal shops around the world, I had not yet been drawn to buy one. That changed in Sedona and I am now the proud owner of 2 beautiful small crystal skulls. What I find interesting is that in my private session with Einstein, Carolyn placed him behind my head so our crown chakras were lined up and I received, what I can only describe as, a download. I have felt a deep connection with him since then and he has been appearing in my soul reading sessions. Please let me know if you have had any cool experiences with crystal skulls as I feel my interest growing daily.

We shared our time with wonderful people: we laughed, we cried and most of all celebrated in gratitude that we were gifted with an incredible experience that will enhance all of our lives in so many ways. I always marvel at the profound inner journey that happens for each individual in the group, including my own.

Charlotte and I have decided to offer the Sedona journey again next Feb so if you are interested, please let me know as we have limited the journey to a maximum of 16 people and we have already had a few sign-ups. Details will be on the site by May 2014 – we will offer a similar itinerary and include an afternoon with Carolyn Ford and Einstein plus a few optional extra opportunities.

Sedona – Holographic Journeys

Whist Charlotte Szivak has facilitated many holographic journeys, this was the first time that I was a part of it and I am blown away at how effective this type of journey is. A holographic journey is ideal for people who aren’t able to physically make the journey themselves yet want to receive the activations. During the journey, we were receiving messages of amazement and gratitude and whilst every participant felt the energy differently, all have reported shifts in their lives.

Here is what a few of them had to say:

I visited Sedona with Charlotte via holographic transmission and I was bathed and saturated in powerful energies sent by Charlotte during each transmission. I feel expanded with infinite love and clarity. It feels like I just hopped off a cosmic roller coaster ride!! My body feels renewed with the light frequencies sent from Sedona. Absolutely amazing!!

Throughout the journey, I could feel the energy. It started the night before the journey started and continued until the last day. I felt present, alive and fully in the flow. It was like being elevated into a higher realm and the results were astounding. I am richer for the experience in every way – financial, in my relationships with my husband and children and in myself. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!

Thank you for including me in on the holographic journey when you were in Sedona. I had no idea what to expect although was totally open to the experience. I started noticing that my perceptions were changing and found myself more clear, grounded and serene. Then on the 3rd day, I woke up and knew that something energetic was going on. It’s hard to explain, as I have not experienced any-thing like it before. It was as if the room had grown bigger and I was seeing every-thing in a sharper way. I wondered if I was receiving a transmission so relaxed and tried to clear my mind. All of a sudden, I saw some images and felt an overwhelming sense of peace wash over me and my fear melted away. This feeling has stayed with me ever since. Extraordinary!

Charlotte’s holographic transmission from Sedona were once in a lifetime experience and simply cannot be put in words. I have experienced other transmissions via Charlotte but Sedona’s energy was just amazing. Charlotte gave us an incredible opportunity to be a part of something and for this I will be eternally gratefully. Thank you for allowing us to feel Sedona from miles away.

Intuitive Coaching Sessions

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.
