My name is Sarahbeth. Since the summer of 2017 I have been exploring, expanding and growing in my overall wellness. 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 and deepen my already strong connection with nature. 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 began saying yes to myself and 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 be a living testimony of what is possible when you say yes to yourself and embody your sovereignty. Remembering that you are a sovereign being expands your capacity to live your best life because you are fully expressing the ultimate authority you have in your life and therefore become liberated from constructs, conditioning and programming that have been imposed on you. Conscious living is a necessary supplement to sovereignty because it focuses on putting into action the choice freedom you have. I created this Thoughtful Pours space to be able to guide others in their sovereignty 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, and finally, fully say yes to myself. So, I started experimenting with plant-based diets and different kinds of movement to figure out what I liked and what worked. I spent even more time outside and started exploring the benefits of nature therapy. 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 wellness, rooted in connection with nature. I completed a year-long 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 is not only sustainable but has room to shift with my life. It also provided me with the training necessary to create an individualized program tailored to your specific needs and desires, should we decide to work together as coach and client.
Why Not? –
To take it one step further and indulge my investigative spirit and interest in alternative healing modalities, I completed a 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 service with holistic health coaching gives me the ability to further customize a program for you.
My Purpose, My Mission, My Vision, My Work –
The way that I understand it is your purpose is the way you live your life and what you’re here to bring into the world, this is both personally and professionally defined. Your mission is sort of like a project, or how you bring your purpose into the world, it evolves with your purpose in different seasons and stages of your life. Your vision is your revolution, or the impact you hope to create through your mission. So to not only give you, but myself, more clarity, here goes.
I believe that my personal purpose in this life is to explore the depth and breadth of emotions we experience in life – but specifically in relation to ourselves and others – and to remind you that it all gets to exist. My purpose through my work is to help people design a life they love living where they feel fulfilled, nourished and happy. My personal purpose plays out here by helping others explore all areas and experiences of their own life. My mission is to be a living testimony of what is possible when you say yes to yourself and embody your sovereignty. This is how I show you that it all gets to exist – by helping you navigate the ebbs and flows of your life through sharing my own and through the medium of coaching. My vision is that of a thriving world for all through total nourishment and hydration on a soul level.
It’s time be the leader of your life. It’s time to say YES to yourself, to your health and to feeling good.
