…means to me that you remember you are multidimensional and completely unique.  Like the seasons of the Earth and the phases of the Moon, you change.

You are Wise, Creative, Sensual, Nurturing, and Ambitious.

You are quiet and bold, reserved and wild, a mother and sexy, angry and loving.

 

And because there is no one like you anywhere, you are going to do life, motherhood, work, and self-care differently from everyone.

 

So why are we always trying to fit ourselves into a box? And why is it that even though we so desperately long to create a life that truly feels like OURS, everything seems to get in the way…

 

We’ve been sold this one-size-fits-all solution to happiness. Like if we can just look like a model, get married, buy a cute house, and have a couple kids, then we’ll be completely fulfilled.

Before I had kids, I devoted years of my life to being at peace with my body and challenging the “body box” that so many women feel pressured to fit into. The freedom and joy I experienced birthed my international program Live More Weigh Less, where thousands of women have found freedom from emotional eating and fallen in love with their unique and powerful bodies.

 

When I had my first child, I felt pressure to fit myself into the “good mom” box. I stopped thinking about what I wanted and focused on how a “good mom” is supposed to act.  As I spent my time running errands, making meals for my family, doing laundry, and making sure my kid was getting everything he needed – all while financially supporting my family – I lost touch with who I was and what I wanted.

 

But the truth is that women are innately powerful, insanely unique, and have these wild, magical, creative souls. We can act like 5 different people in the span of a day. This is what makes us amazing.

 

And when we embrace this range of how we express ourselves, and how unique each of us are, we create a life that is as distinct as our fingerprints. None of us are meant to do motherhood the same way, work the same number of hours, or have the same kind of marriage.  When we try to fit ourselves into a box, we lose the magic of who we are.

 

And on top of that, we’re taught that our job as mothers is to run around like crazy making sure our partners and kids are happy and growing, getting to all of their activities, being fed and loved and fulfilled… while we are left too tired and overwhelmed to do the same for ourselves.

 

And what’s even worse, when we get real about how unfulfilled we are and how disconnected we are from our desires and dreams, we feel guilty for wanting more, and we just put on a happy face and keep going like the “good mother” that we should be, wondering why everyone else seems to be enjoying life while we’re starting to feel so empty inside.

 

After I had kids, everything looked great on the outside: Handsome Doctor Husband, cute curly-haired kids, and me with a flashy Instagram feed and successful business. But on the inside I was dissatisfied, overwhelmed, and deeply unhappy.

 

I’d lost my connection to my soul and a higher power, I didn’t feel nourished, I dreaded getting out of bed in the morning, I was constantly in survival mode, and I had no idea who I was or what was going to make me happy. I honestly felt dead inside.

 

Every time Jonathan and I would talk about our future, my throat would tighten. Something about the life we were creating didn’t feel right to me.

 

I finally started to create space for myself, which allowed me to see the ways I was prioritizing the life I felt like I “should want” instead of the life that was a true expression of who I am.

 

I spent the next year soul searching with the intention of forging a deep connection with my soul and the magic that exists in the world around me. And I just kept asking myself, “Who am I and what do I really want?”

 

This led to our buying a retreat center in Medfield, MA, where women come to connect with who they are and what they truly desire. Seeing this dream become a reality so quickly was the most crazy magical thing that’s ever happened to me.  

Jonathan and I strive to create lives that are aligned with who we are and are always watching out for ways in which we feel pressure to fit into a box. Our house is a bit wild, always filled with flowers and magical objects. I strive to create a space that tells the story of our family and who we are as individuals. Since I no longer do a bunch of stuff I don’t want to do, my days can be a mix of work, rituals, and downtime.  

 

Since I’ve embraced the life that is a true expression of me, I have a better with relationship with my children – they are happier and more settled. Jonathan and I are in sync and laugh way more. I’m not immune to the same ups and downs and challenges as a woman, but there’s a comfort and strength I feel from my life being completely mine. I just feel alive, creative, and whole.

TESTIMONIALS

  • “There is no “right” type of person to benefit from Sarah’s life-altering work; there is no “one” lifestyle or business strategy that it she is better aligned with. I sat in a room of engineers, mathematicians, health coaches, models and actresses, yoga instructors, and so many more. Some say Spirit, some say Divine Feminine… for me I follow God — but in our hearts as we sat in the circle and supported one another, nothing could be more clear than we were all channeling the same life-giving force and working together to change the world.”

    – Chellie
  • “In 2010, my roommate and I won fluke tickets to an NYC bridal expo, where I first met Sarah. Her celebration of pleasure, the body, joy, beauty, and gratitude immediately impacted me. Her emails started to have a HUGE impact on my life right away… even though, she was a weight loss coach! I wasn’t really trying to lose any weight, but her method, which was all about infusing life with so much magic and pleasure that food could be FOOD rather than an escape, still resonated so much. Ultimately, she was teaching women to listen to their bodies, lead with their hearts, and learn from their intuition. She has truly been one of the most profound teachers of my life.”

  • “Sarah has a unique way of getting to the heart of what you need versus what you believe you need.”

  • What would it be like to turn off your phone this weekend? If that freaks you out, you should probably do it. This moon cycle in Whole Woman we are focusing on intentionally creating juicy, feminine, sacred self-care. We’re talking about taking time to cook a beautiful meal, taking a ritual bath with lilac buds from our trees, and just plain old NOTICING how beautiful our world, our children and our friends are. And for me, my phone is in direct opposition to that. It’s not black and white, my phone adds a lot, but periods of being off social media and text have me noticing the magic of my life so much more without even trying. So this weekend I’m signing off. And going to finish “How to Break up with your phone” which is a deeply important book by Catherine Price about how technology is deliberately designed to be addictive. As she aptly says, “it’s not you, it’s your phone.” I am taking Instagram off my phone, telling my friends and family to call instead of text me. You in? See you on Tuesday.

Also, I’m hosting a Full Moon Temple on Monday 6/17, SAVE THE DATE! I’m working on a new invitation page that will be up next week. Can’t wait!!! Image via @jennracioppi
  • Every once in a while, Annabelle will ask me to put a moon on her forehead, a symbol of the Priestesses of Avalon, which is the lineage of the mystery school  I am a part of (though I don’t walk around with a moon on my forehead) And Marshall regularly reads my thoughts. He says “my brain can hear your brain.” Hazel will say “Haaa!” (Hi) and blow kisses to all the trees animals and flowers as we walk around the land. All children are magical and if we pay attention, we notice all the little ways magic is just built into the web of their soul.  This magic is frequently unlearned, and sometimes remembered later in life. And that will probably happen to my kids too, and if they never reconnect with it, I will have to read a lot of @drshefalitsabary books again to let it go. It’s like my version of wanting your kid to be a doctor or a lawyer. I can just see my 50 year old self lamenting that my child is a lawyer instead of a witch 😂. But I’m here today to encourage you to honor the magic in your children. Point it out, celebrate it. In our home we track the moon, celebrate the wheel of the year and encourage them to say good morning to the trees. Take a minute to think about what little ways honoring magic in your family feels good to you, and tell us below, I’d love to hear about your littles and ideas for nurturing magic you have. #13moonmysteryschool #everydaysacred
  • One day my Grandmother, who turns 85 today, asked me how work was going. I told her it was going great and I was “working on teaching a workshop but like, online.” Assuming that may be a little confusing for her. “You mean, a webinar?” She replied 😂. My grandmother is one of the sharpest most with it women I’ve ever met. She still works FULL TIME in real estate because she loves it. Her personal motto is “make your own sunshine” which means that it’s no one else’s job to make you happy, that’s your responsibility. Her example has effected me in so many ways. I feel very lucky to have her in my mother line.

What is/was your Grandmother like? What do you love about her? Tell me below.

  • Beauty is Healing.  @jonathanbrajtbord and I went to @pammyscambridge for a date last night, and when I walked into the restaurant, my whole system shifted into a state of joy, creativity and relaxation because it was just so beautiful. Living in both Manhattan and San Francisco has set within us a very high standard of restaurant food, service and beauty, and it’s been hard to find spots that light us up. But last night was pure magic. We laughed, cried (yes, in public) and had great conversations. I say this because we can often see beauty as frivolous or like going out to a nice restaurant is just too much. But it is MEDICINE. And if you can’t afford to go out, create beauty at home or spend time in nature (the most beautiful and the most free). Also, the chef of Pammy’s grew up in my hometown and I’ve eaten at a few of his other restaurants he’s worked at over the course of his career and it just goes to show you that building a dream takes TIME. Decades. So set your sights high and get comfortable, it may be a while, and that’s perfect. 
Thank you Pam & Chris for creating such a special place.

What are your favorite restaurants? Tag them below and the city. Let’s get a list going of restaurants that give us medicine. #everythingissacred
  • I wanted to work all day. That’s my default. But instead I went to hot yoga and did 2 hours of work and then went swimming with some friends. I know a lot of us have to go to an office, but maybe we can all just ask ourselves if we really need to put in all that time? I have a lot of flexibility, and I just don’t take it! Working on making my work a smaller piece of my life pie. So grateful to @katenorthrup and her book #doless for helping me with this. I am so addicted to the idea that I have a lot to do, and I really want to shift that. It’s hard. What are you working on these days?
