Bathing In The Dark Can Be Healing For The Soul

Uncategorized May 29, 2020

 The past couple of days my heart has felt heavy. It seems like in every part of life there is turmoil... yet when I look outside, there is beauty everywhere.

Positive Thinking can be tempting in times like this.

"Focus on the positive!"
"Don't let it get you down!"
"But look at all the good there is in the world!"

These are noble statements... and I had this attitude for many years.

The Think Positive attitude got me into the habit of putting my head in the sand and avoiding painful encounters, experiences, and feelings.

It almost ruined my marriage, caused me to do lasting damage to my kids, and sabotage my business.

Then after some serious wakeup calls (yes, it took a few to pull me out of the delusion)

I learned to see challenging emotional states as sacred experiences.

Opportunities for healing.

I've learned to embrace the anger or grief and use them to learn more about myself, my experience, and humanity.

And when I allow myself to be fully present with the feelings, I...

Anger itself isn't harmful...

Uncategorized May 27, 2020

... It's the projection of the anger that is.

As a modern society, we've lost the art of processing emotions.

We look away.
We push them away.
We push them down.
We avoid.
We numb.
We escape.
We pretend.

We learn that they're scary because of the intense projection of others' emotions.

We're confused about what to do with the feelings of others, so we take responsibility for them.

Then when we are pushed to our limits,

When we are triggered,

And the pressure builds,

What we've been storing inside of us rises to the surface.

And without the effective tools and processes, the emotions enter our

Thought patterns,

Communication with our loved ones, clients, and teams,

Decisions,

And creations.

Without the tools and processes, our lives become infused with the emotions we carry.

That heavy load on our backs.
And muscles.
And joints.
And internal organs.

We try to think the emotions away,

We try to punish our emotions away,

And we try to control them.

But it never really works, because the...

Quantum Activities To Get You Your Time Back

Uncategorized May 26, 2020

People often ask me,
 
“Sarah, how do you get all that done??”
 
I homeschool my kids,
I’ve built several online programs and run them,
I work with clients privately,
And manage it all each day.
 
When I first started this, I quickly got burned out - stressed, short fuse, constantly sick, and put some of my most important personal activities on hold.
 
THAT DIDN’T WORK.
 
It didn’t work for me, my family, or my clients and students who I was constantly losing track of.
 
Because I was so focused on achieving goals, I neglected the things that have since then made me the most successful:
 
Quantum Activities.
 
Have you ever noticed that when you’re stressed, it seems like one bad thing happens after another?
 
When it rains, it pours.
 
And you're always behind, racing to catch up.
Always putting out fires.
 
And because you're...

I was kind, compassionate, and meant well… and I still traumatized my children...

Uncategorized May 24, 2020
Perpetuating the generational cycles that I grew up with.
 
My intentions were strong - to raise the healthiest, happiest, and smartest kids I could.
 
I did everything right.
 
I breastfed until they were 2.
I used cloth diapers.
I made all of their food from scratch.
They slept in my bed.
They didn't cry it out.
 
And in the end none of that really mattered….
 
Because I had a temper.
I tried to control them.
I yelled.
I criticized.
Then I apologized and felt guilty and ashamed
 
So I would try harder to be the best mom I could be, which led to more anger and control, then shame and guilt.
 
The more stressed I was, the worse my temper got.
 
(And what was the worst was that as I witnessed the behavior from myself, I felt the angry voices of my parents coming out of me.
 
And it felt like I had no control.
 
The more I tried to control it, the less control I had.)

7 Simple Steps To Go From Chaos To Calm

Uncategorized May 24, 2020

When I was stressed out of my mind, first I dealt with it (which meant ignoring it or pushing through)

 

When it got worse, I sought relief (which meant a lot of breathing, meditation, calming music, or wine). 

 

And then I got sick of the constant battle with anxiety and worry, I sought resolution (which meant releasing the root of the anxiety). 

.

 

Throughout years of training and practice, I developed the Energetic Emotional Release Technique, which is the basis of everything that I do today. 

.

 

I use it to help my clients naturally reprogram their beliefs, patterns, and stories so that they can continuously uplevel their relationships and businesses. 

.

 

EERT is so simple that you can even teach your kids to do it.

 

Here are the 7 Steps to Resolved Stress:

 

  1. Identify what you want and why

 

  1. Identify the gap (what's the roadblock?)

 

  1. Identify the root of the gap

 

  1. Identify where and when...

Relationships over Perfection

Uncategorized May 23, 2020

With kids, it's not necessarily about the thing they're doing -

 

The chores

The school work

The sports/extra activities

The meals

The conversations.

 

It's about their  -relationships- with the things they're doing.

 

What if raising kids isn't about getting these tiny humans to behave and perform a particular way, 

 

but demonstrating and helping them create positive relationships with the important components of their lives?

How I Went From Being A Sleep Deprived, Freakish Stay At Home To A Balanced And Harmonious Entrepreneur (Who Homeschools Her Kids)

Uncategorized May 22, 2020

  1. The year I had enough.

 

I’d spent 3 years as a stay at home and I couldn’t do another.

 

The early morning wake-ups

 

The all-night nursing

 

The all-day sibling fighting and crying

 

The obsession with being a perfect mom 

 

I was too deep in a bubble and I had to get out (before I drowned and lost myself forever)

 

My lifeboat?

 

An advertisement for the pottery class I saw in a local newspaper.

 

I signed up and entered a new world of creativity and exploration that brought me back to myself and beyond my self.

 

Being creative again unlocked new energies I didn’t know I had and I wanted to explore it further.

 

A friend recommended Reiki, an energy healing modality that helps practitioners tap into their own Source of power and well-being

 

And channel it to help and heal others.

 

Reiki training was less about learning and more about REMEMBERING.

 

Remembering my innate...

Honor Your "Head Trash"

Uncategorized May 21, 2020

When congratulating a client I almost used the word "head trash" or "garbage" when talking about the stuff she moved through to break through. 

 

The thing is...

 

What you're moving through isn't trash or garbage. It's not even b.s.

 

It's just stuff or clutter. 

 

It's just something you unintentionally held onto for too long. 

 

By saying you have b.s., trash, or garbage inside of you, is kind of like saying YOU are b.s., trash, or garbage. 

 

It was a part of you for a part of your life, and it's important to honor that part of yourself and your life. 

 

Be kind to yourself today

How Money Blocks And Self-Sabotage Are Developed And Maintained And How To Release And Resolve Them.

Uncategorized May 20, 2020

I asked my kids a powerful question today...

 

"What's the benefit of being poor?"

 

Their immediate response was,

 

"NOTHING!"

------

 

On my Phone Call Walk the other day I was talking with a Vibrant Life Community member about self-sabotage, and how it takes more than just "negative messages" to make someone engage in self-destructive behavior.

 

Like when a client told me that she never completed projects and had Shiny Object Syndrome because her mom always let her off the hook when things got hard. 

 

Then after some more discussion, she casually mentioned that her mom was a screamer, and punished her for making mistakes. 

 

This is what the human mind does in that situation:

 

Yelling = rejection

 

Parents = life 

 

Rejection = "I'm not loved" and "I'm not good enough"

 

"I'm not loved" = “My life is being threatened, I’m not safe”

 

(Yes, in the subconscious mind of a child this is...
