Spiritual retreat is a powerful answer to deal with our stressful economic disaster. The most horrible incident I can remember is the suicide of a former student who was behind on her mortgage. She lost hope in her ability to catch up on her bills and found it easier to end her life. There are thousands of homes in foreclosure and many are out of work. Follow these three tips to find strength and release your stress.

1. Stop the negative thoughts that there are no answers. Take a break in nature near a tree if possible. Sit and breathe and concentrate on a time in your life when you felt safe and cared for.

2. See yourself happy and beyond the current challenge that you are experiencing. There is always an answer and a way through any challenge. It may not be the answer that you prefer but once you release your attachment to the outcome an answer will come.

3. Treat yourself to simple pleasures that don't cost money. Create a spa in your home by gifting yourself with an aromatherapy bath. Turn on your favorite music, light candles, and run a hot bath with lavender, rosemary, and orange essential oils. Put three drops of each oil in a tablespoon of honey and disperse in the water. Turn off the phones and let go.
