A Day And Evening Travel Adventure In Jerome, Arizona!

My husband and I wanted to take a short adventure trip and decided to go to Jerome, Arizona. Jerome is a small town in central Arizona located on top of Cleopatra Hill between Prescott and Flagstaff is Jerome, Arizona’s historic copper mining town. Back in the 1880s, Jerome was a large copper mining town. It has a wild history and was once called the “Wickest Town of the West.”

When founded in 1876, Jerome became the fourth largest city in Arizona, and the population peaked at approximately 15,000 in the 1920s. The Great Depression slowed the mining operation, and the claim eventually went to Phelps Dodge, who still holds the share to this day. World War II significantly increased the demand for copper, but the demand for copper decreased dramatically after the war. Jerome’s economy was primarily dependent upon the need for copper; Phelps Dodge Mine closed in 1953, with less than 100 residents, and they started promoting the town as a historic ghost town. In 1967 Jerome was designated a National Historic District by the federal government.

Jerome is thriving with tourists and artists and has approximately 450 residences. It is one of America’s largest ghost towns. The drive up the mountain is winding, curving, and uphill, and the views are breathtaking. It is a mile high in elevation. You will see a sign within the town indicating the height. When we arrived in Jerome, we wanted to find parking close to the hotel. It was a Sunday, with lots of tourists, so we parked in the paid parking area.

We checked into the Connor Hotel of Jerome. The hotel has been around since 1898. Our stay was in Room 1, which is in the hotel’s corner section with the windows facing two directions. What a beautiful room with antique furniture. The room is known for being haunted.

I had plugged in my phone charger and was freshening up in the bathroom, and Tom was lying down on the bed taking a nap. While I was in the bathroom putting on makeup, he called out to me, “Patti, what did you say?” I replied I didn’t say anything. He said, I heard your voice; I said it wasn’t me.

Tom was still lying on the bed with his eyes closed, and I noticed my phone charging cord was unplugged from the wall. I thought that is weird. Later that night, I asked Tom about it, and he didn’t unplug it.

Patti walking down the hall in the Connor Hotel of Jerome

That evening we went on a local ghost tour, and one of the places that the tour guide took us was outside our hotel. He told the hotel’s story of burning down twice and restored and that guests who stay in the hotel have had unexplained electrical occurrences, fathom ghost dog barking and hearing a women’s voice.

We didn’t hear a fathom ghost dog barking. Connor Hotel of Jerome is dog friendly, and we did see other guests accompanied by their dogs.

That night while in bed, I felt my legs touched throughout the night. Tom woke up with the feeling of his legs held down firmly as well.

Do I think the hotel’s haunted?
From our experiences in the hotel, yes, I do. Whether you believe in ghosts or not, the hotel is enchanting.

Would we go back again?
Most definitely, Jerome is one of our favorite places to visit.

It was a short visit, and most of the other times, we stay for at least two days. Walking around the town, shopping, eating, wine tasting, and most of all, the ghost tours.

Jerome has a variety of shops, restaurants, and lodging. If you enjoy wine tasting, Jerome has some wine tasting venues. Other places to explore in the surrounding areas are the Arizona Verde Valley, Cottonwood, Clarksdale, Camp Verde, Prescott, Prescott Valley, and Sedona. In future blog posts, we will explore some of these places and possibly more of Jerome again.

I would love to hear if you have been to Jerome, Arizona and what was your experience was like?

Staying Positive In A Negative Environment!

I get asked this question regularly. “How can I stay positive in a negative work environment?” I understand how easy to get sucked into negativity, drama, or a bad attitude when you are in a toxic work environment.  

Some people want to pull you into their emotional drama—rude comments about others, sarcastic undertones, and the energy vampires who want to drag everyone else down with them. People don’t even realize that they have a negative attitude because it has become a habit and spills into their personal lives.

When working in a toxic environment, people may start to take everything personally because of the feeling of being verbally attacked, mutilated, one-upping, taken advantage of, or pointing out mistakes or faults. As time goes on, it takes a toll on people’s emotions.

If you have been following me for a while, you know I have written about similar topics before. This situation is one of the biggest challenges people face when working with others. However, there is hope.  

What are some strategies to help stay positive?

  1. Walk away when drama is happening around you. Please don’t engage in it. Excuse yourself from the conversation.  
  2. When there are unkind remarks about someone else, say something nice about that particular person. This action tends to halt the conversation.
  3. Listen to uplifting music – like 528 Hz Positive Energy music on Youtube.
  4. Recite Positive Affirmations.
  5. Journal how you are feeling.
  6. Go for a walk.
  7. Focus on work tasks.

Be the person you want to be around. Focus on what you want in your life and remove the thoughts of what you don’t. Set goals of how you are going to change your situation and put them into action. Hire a coach to help you succeed to get where you want to be. ~ Patti

Episode 40 – Finding Purpose Beyond Work – There is More to Life than Working!

In this podcast episode, Angela and Patti discuss Finding Purpose Beyond Work.  

A Summary:

Having some work-life balance keeps communication open and nourishes your relationships. Take time out weekly to cherish your family life, spend time with a friend, a hobby and make some time to rest, so your life is fulfilled?

Here are some self-reflection questions to ponder if you are overworking:Am I putting my work or career ahead of everything else? What is it doing to my relationships? Am I saying yes to an unreasonable workload and not taking time off or vacation? Am I connecting to my family? Do I have true friends? Am I happy? Do I smile? Am I kind to others at work?

What does being successful look like?

What is a satisfying life?

What is a purposeful life?

What is a meaningful life?

Purpose is not always about big-scale plans. Purpose is about meeting people who can help you get to the next stage of life. Many of the most important or valuable connections in life start by meeting other people and seeing what opportunities may come. 

To help create a work-life balance and purpose in life, Patti made an online course called – Incredible Work-Life Balance Hacks for Busy Leaders!

Angela helps business owners with spirit work. What are the spiritual reasons you incarnated to have this business or life? Your business and life are often a lesson to help you develop – it’s not only about the money. Of Course, there will be challenges and learnings about money. For more information on how to work with Angela go to – https://dancewithangelahealing.as.me/

How Can Reiki Sessions Help Reduce Stress, Overwhelm, and Inspire Problem-Solving?

As a Leadership, Work-Life Balance Coach, and Reiki Practitioner, I want to help managers and supervisors reduce their overwhelm, stress, anxiety, overload before burnout or health issues occur. Bring some peace and tranquility into their chaotic lives.

Reiki is a powerful practice to help with relaxation, stress-relief, lower anxiety, and overworked mind chatter. Spending time relaxing and letting go of the week’s overloaded and complicated tasks. A Reiki session can make all the difference from keeping you balanced and your mind in peace and harmony so you can be more productive and calm during those stressful moments at work and home.  

What is Reiki?

Reiki is a Japanese technique for relaxation, which also promotes healing. Reiki’s performed through touch, or hands are hovering over someone or from a distance. Warm and soothing energy flows from the practitioner’s hands into the recipient, promoting relaxation and releasing tension. 

It’s easy to neglect yourself when your career demands 24/7 access to you, however taking time out makes life more enjoyable for you, your staff, friends, and the family. You are a much more stable personality when you take some me-time. Also, when you are relaxed, your mind has time to rest. When your mind relaxes, it has time to rejuvenate; that’s when good ideas and problem-solving happen.

Know Your Value!

My Business Coach Cheryl Thacker recently posted this story; the author is unknown, and it touched me deeply, and I would like to share it with you.

Here’s the story:

Before he died, a father said to his son, “Here is a watch that your grandfather gave me. It is almost 200 years old. Before I give it to you, go to the jewelry store and tell them that I want to sell it, and see how much they offer you.” The son went to the jewelry store, came back to his father, and said, “They offered $150.00 because it’s so old.” The father said, “Go to the pawnshop.” The son went to the pawnshop, came back to his father, and said, “The pawnshop offered $10.00 because it looks so worn.” The father asked his son to go to the museum and show them the watch. He went to the museum, came back, and said to his father, “The curator offered $500,000.00 for this rare piece to include in their precious antique collections.” The father said, “I wanted to let you know that the right place values you in the right way. Don’t find yourself in the wrong place and get angry if you are not valued. Those that know your value are those who appreciate you, don’t stay in a place where nobody sees your value.”

I’m sure many of you can relate to the end of the story and felt it.

The right place values you in the right way. Don’t find yourself in the wrong place and get angry if you are not valued. Those that know your value are those who appreciate you, don’t stay in a place where nobody sees your value. ~ unknown

Many of us have worked or currently work in industries where being criticized, under-appreciated, under-minded, devalued, flaws and mistakes are pointed out and not forgiven.

The mind games can bring people to their knees, break them down and destroy good honest people.

Like the story, if a job or career is slowly killing you, it’s time to start putting together a strategy exit plan into action and go somewhere you’re valued. Be with people who light you up and appreciate your talents and contributions.

Episode 37 – Is Your Relationship Lock-Down Proof?

In today’s podcast episode, we will be discussing how to fool-proof relationships so they can endure during lock-down.

With any relationship, you will have things that are going to irritate you about the other person. No one is perfect, and no relationship is either. You will have highs and lows during the partnership. For some, it is easier to walk away than to work it out. Anything worth having you have to work at it.

Now, let’s get real, there were many times Patti felt like running away, and that was pretty much my inner and outer struggles, not him. It’s okay to feel this way at times, and it’s alright to take a break to figure things out when needed. It takes two to have a healthy, thriving relationship. In relationships, you have two imperfect people with very different views on what a happy relationship should look like while trying to relate to each other, besides having a different upbringing, love languages, personalities, and values. Gary Chapman wrote a book on the 5 Love Languages.

It’s important to do things together as well. Have a date night at home – dress up, make a special dinner, etc. Sit outside with a glass of wine or beer, coffee or hot chocolate, whatever is your favorite beverage and watch the sunset, go for a walk, watch a TV show or movie together or go for a bike ride, take a drive in the car together to get outside and away from home. For more tips on surviving social isolation, we did a podcast on Episode 15 on this topic.  

How are you surviving the lock-down in your relationship?  

Are you looking for an activity to connect as a couple? Angela is offering an online Wednesday movement meditation class in the USA at 7:30 pm EST, which is the following day in Sydney, Australia, Thursday, where couples can explore healing touch with their partner to feel heart connection with your partner. It happens right in the comfort of your home over zoom and is excellent for those looking to do an activity that is not just watching Netflix and can break up your routine with something new and a shared activity to enjoy with each other. You can do it with a friend or child over 14 as well.  

Individuals can also join in the class and discover how to feel connected to your heart and build your awareness of what love is and how easy it is when you create a supportive environment. https://dancewithangelahealing.as.me/

Some things to consider as you think about your lockdown experience. 

❤️ How did you survive it, or how are you still surviving it?

❤️ What have you discovered about your relationship?

❤️ Did you blame yourself, your government, your partner, your children? 

We would love to hear your answers to these questions about your lockdown experience and some inspirational relationship stories of how being in lockdown together strengthens your relationship?

Patti and Angela are intending and wishing all the best for your relationships to build stronger, resilient connections that will prosper in these times.

I decided to start doing a newsletter through a blog post, which will probably be quarterly.

Here is what I have been up to lately:

I have been working with a “Successful Coaches” Coach. Her name is Coach Cheryl and learning new ways to promote my coaching business. To get real clear on who my soul clients are and get out of my comfort zone by doing different marketing methods. Coach Cheryl knows her stuff and makes you accountable to take action. She was also my Coaching Instructor at World Coach Institute, where I received my Master Certified Coach Certification.

You’ve probably noticed that I have been making some changes to my website lately. I’m in an online membership group called The WordPress Academy with The Tech Angel Kelly Cairns. Kelly is a lovely person and is excellent at explaining how to do tech stuff to the non-tech.

Last year I went back to school, and I become a Certified Master Reiki Practitioner. Reiki is a Japanese technique for relaxation, which also promotes healing. Reiki’s performed through light touch, or hands are hovering over someone or distance. As a Leadership and Work-Life Balance coach, adding Reiki to my practice can help people relax when stressed. For more about Distant Reiki, click here. To schedule a Distant Reiki Session with Patti, click on the button below. 

In case you haven’t heard, I co-host a bi-weekly podcast with Angela Ambrosia, a Love and Relationship Coach. The podcast is called Building Better Relationships at Home and Work with Angela and Patti. We talk about everything and anything regarding relationships, whether at home or in the workplace. Here is our latest podcast, Episode 37 – Is Your Relationship Lock-Down Proof?     

This month on Instagram,  I am posting Leadership Inspirational Quotes on Mondays. If you are on Instagram, follow me @coachingforinsp.

I love this quote. There were times in my life that I was so focused on work that I did forget to live a more meaningful life. What about you? What are you doing today or this week to create a more meaningful life outside of work?

I have created a Market Research Survey for Leadership and Work-Life Balance. Please take a few moments to complete the survey by answering the questions it will help me better serve you. 

I added something new to my blog posts recently it’s “Share a cup of coffee” button, it’s a way for followers to appreciate my work by sharing a cup of coffee with me.
