#soulshots is a series I’m creating over the summer as an expression of my inner journey. #Soulshots provide immunity to fear and guard against the suffering which arises when we forget we are made from and for Love.

You are not your past. You are not your parents. You are not what you have done or what has been done to you. You are none of those things.

You are not your sadness, or even your happiness. You are not your thoughts of inferiority or your worries that you may never achieve your goals.

You are not your mistakes, or your accomplishments. You are not the teacher or the mother or the ex-wife or the boss or the employee.

Those are roles, yes, and experiences, absolutely. They all happen to you but they are not you.

You, are light. You, are love. No matter where you live or what you have, you are love.

Transcend the noise of the world by getting quiet. There, in the silent stillness you will meet yourself, the ‘you’ of pure awareness, the witness to your thoughts and feelings, your failings and successes.

Transcend your opinions of yourself by dropping into the steady beat of your heart which pulses with the expansive life force of which you were created.


You are a miracle.

Know this, and you automatically transcend every insult, every judgement, every opinion, even your own.

Transcend your doubts that you are not enough by placing your perfectly formed fingers upon your rhythmic pulse which carries the tune of existence.

Transcend your false ideas by realizing the Perfection within you.

Not for what you do, or say or how you look but for who you are, exactly as you are.

It’s never too late to transcend what you have been taught to realise what you know, what you’ve always known, but have forgotten.

Remembering allows you to transcend the confusion of your morals, religion and politics.

Transcend what you think you know about yourself to discover what is.

From this place, grounded in the core of your being, you are unshakeable. Free to co-create, to fail, to succeed, to be the wife and the employee and the friend; to accomplish whatever you desire without becoming any of it, for nothing can ever compare with the undeniable magnificence of who you truly are.


For Robin Williams, whose spirit transcends space and time.

  1. Sarah, thank you beyond words for these. I’ve gotten extremely identified with my thoughts the past few months and didn’t realize it until recently. Due to these posts I’m now reading The Untethered Soul and WOW. Reminds me a lot of Eckhart Tolle but it’s also different too… and suffice it to say it’s been exceedingly helpful. Please continue to write these. I desperately need them!!!!

    • Thank you so much Laurie, it’s great to connect with people who need this stuff as much as I do! While they may not be my most popular posts, for some reason I have been called to write them regardless, and the fact that someone like you says it helps them shows me why. Yes, the book is amazing. It’s the kind of book I think I need to read a page of every day. My meditation practice is saving my ass right now, and is the only thing that has ever really given me relief from my mind.
