How do I know if I should do this thing I want to do? What if I make a mistake? If this doesn’t work out, what do I do then? How do I best serve my soul’s purpose? I have so many questions and so few answers to them, except for that we never know exactly what we should be doing or how it is going to go. We never know if the thing we want to do is going … Keep reading…

When in doubt, this will get you out

doubt

I want to share a little process I have been using whenever I am stuck in doubt and want to get out. I gotta say, I really, really hate existing in a state of doubt. Self-doubt, decision doubt, relationship doubt and creative doubt are all states I experience and it is a really unfulfilling, unproductive and un-fun place for me to be. Usually, I will roll around in the doubt-mud for a while, listening to my head as it tells … Keep reading…

Journey to Shine: reflections from my first e-retreat

Journey to Shine e-retreat

From January to March this year, I hosted my first online retreat, ‘Journey to Shine.’ Fourteen women from four countries shared a journey of connection and transformation via the wonders of technology (namely Facebook, email, Youtube and Skype). As you know, it was the first event of this kind I had hosted and therefore it was uncharted territory for me. While I had written most of the content in advance, I had no idea how it would resonate with people … Keep reading…

Are you a Healer?

Sarah Journey to Shine

I saw this on Caroline Myss’ Facebook page the other day: I thought, yes, yes I would! And I did! And it worked! It got me thinking about the all the decisions I have made over the last few years, and how at the time I didn’t know it was healing I was seeking, when actually that is EXACTLY what I have received. This literal journey over the least three years has been amazing. The things we have seen, done … Keep reading…

Sacred Objects: A Loverope Giveaway

Loverope-journey

Since shedding all my possessions in search of truth and freedom, I’ve experienced an interesting shift in my relationship to ‘stuff.’ I have, in fact, gathered more possessions since I left for Cambodia three years ago with a 20L backpack. The difference is that these things now serve one of the above purposes, either ‘truth’ or ‘freedom’. We bought a car in Mexico, which easily falls into the ‘freedom’ category and was one of the best decisions we made on … Keep reading…

Broken hearts build bridges

dalai thumb

Most of the time, I avoid broken hearts. Who wants to be in pain? Not me. My survival instincts want me to flee far, far away from it. And often, for my own mental and emotional health, I do. But this week it crept in and I simply could not run fast enough to escape. This week, I allowed my heart to break (again) over a situation occurring in my home country. I allowed my heart to crack open for … Keep reading…

Why you need to do The Thing you need to do

Start before you're ready

You know The Thing. The Thing you day dream about, fantasize about and secretly wish for. The Thing you are afraid to say out loud. You need to do it. Now listen up: We’re All Scared. We are all afraid of putting ourselves out there, of starting something new, of expressing ourselves truthfully. We are all afraid of judgement and rejection and ridicule. And selfishly, that is why I need you to do The Thing you need to do, like, … Keep reading…

Reclaiming Spaces

China-prayer-flags flipped

Before we left on this journey three years ago, my life felt fragmented. Like pieces of different jig-saw puzzles which didn’t fit together. I remember hearing a line in a film which basically summed up how I felt all my life, “Life has a gap in it. It just does. You don’t go crazy trying to fill it like some lunatic.” My life had been full of gaps. Covering over old, unhealed traumas created gaps, resisting my inner voice created … Keep reading…
