My name is Sarahbeth. Since the summer of 2017 I have been exploring, expanding and growing in the realms of mindfulness, meditation, soul searching and physical health. It wasn’t until September 2019 that things really started shifting for me. So many expanders were constantly being brought into my life and I fully immersed myself in the depths of learning anything that I felt drawn to.
The Great Beyond –
I have a deep love for learning; because of this I have self-taught and invested in the teachings of others in order to dive into the realm of mindfulness. I pulled my natal and human design charts and learned how to read them so I could figure out what makes me, me. I started visualization and chanting practices. I attended online workshops discussing topics such as finding your soul purpose, empowerment, learning how to listen to your soul, astrology, abundance and authentic content creation, among many others. I learned about EFT (tapping & acupressure) and how it can help unblock our limiting beliefs, release resistance and rewire your brain. I began to add more play, movement and fun into my life. I started learning about narrative, or mindset, shift. I started a meditation practice because my anxiety had gotten so bad that I was waking up in the middle of the night in a panic attack. From there I deepened my practice and utilized unguided meditations for receiving messages from my higher self and God. This was where I had a major breakthrough – or should I say, break free.
Breakthrough Free –
I had been struggling to visualize what my soul purpose is, and what my dream life would look like. Many of us have been there, trying to control the message or subconsciously pushing it away when it shows up because it’s not what society tells us is sustainable or practical. After many attempts to do so, one of my expanders told me to act as if I already knew for the next few days. I didn’t give it much attention but felt a sense of ease just by releasing my grip on trying so hard to find it. A couple of days later, while in an unguided meditation, it suddenly came to me. A vision detailing what I wanted to do, who I wanted to serve and what my messages would be. From there, it has blossomed into a mission to inspire, connect, empower and educate in whatever ways I can. I created this space to be able to guide others on their health and happiness journey utilizing conscious living practices and a holistic lifestyle approach to wellness. Because when you are aligned with your soul – your Self, your core – you have the power to completely transform your life. The only thing holding you back from living your best life is you and your choices.
Something’s Missing –
Throughout all of the inner work I was doing, I realized that I wasn’t focusing on my body, my physical health. I wasn’t treating it with the same respect I was with my mind and soul. I had been having major digestive issues for years and was actually diagnosed with an overgrowth of a nasty stomach bacteria called H. pylori back in 2018. When the obscene amount of antibiotics that they shoved on me (as the “only” way to get rid of the bacteria) did not work and it came back just a few short months later, I knew it was time to take my health into my own hands. Not only to eradicate the overgrowth of bad bacteria in my stomach, but to overhaul the health of my entire gut and body. So, I started experimenting with plant-based diets and different kinds of movement to figure out what I liked and what worked. I would stick to new routines for a few weeks but then somehow recommit to old habits. I knew I wanted lasting change because I knew how much better I felt, as a whole, when I took care of every part of my being – mind, body and soul. I just had to find the special formula that worked for me and leave room for the ebbs and flows of life. From that point, I have expanded my vision to one that approaches life holistically, covering the areas of mental, physical, emotional and spiritual health. I enrolled in the Health Coach Training Program at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition where I learned about the core concepts of primary food, secondary food, and bio-individuality. Through this program I have cultivated a holistic lifestyle for myself that allows me to take whatever life gives me with courage, openness and curiosity. It also provided me with the education necessary to create an individualized program tailored to your specific needs and desires, should we decide to work together as coach and client. While I do NOT have everything figured out, I HAVE created awareness and sustainable lifestyle habits in my own life that enable me to help guide you in your healing and transformative journey.
Why Not? –
To take it one step further and indulge my investigative spirit and interest in alternative healing modalities, I completed a virtual Reiki certification course in August 2020. Thanks to my master teacher, Hae Lee, I am attuned to Reiki in the first and second degree. As a certified Reiki practitioner I can practice self Reiki as well as offer my services to others that desire energy healing. Combining this practice with holistic health coaching gives me the ability to further customize a program for you.
My Purpose, My Work –
