…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.”

  • This week I took a vow to stand for Self Adoration. I vowed that I would no longer look to others to determine my worth. I will no longer expect Jonathan to help me feel beautiful, or my loved ones to tell me I’m worthy of their love, or my community to make me feel like I’m good at my work. This love and acceptance I deeply desire can only come from the Sacred Love within. I will wobble on my vow, I know, but that’s why we take a vow, so we have a true north to always come back to.

It feels simple, but ask yourself honestly how often you look to others for permission? How often do long for praise or signs or constant validation and affirmation? Yes, it is joyous to be seen, but we will never be able to fully take in the gifts of adoration from others until it is fully cooked in ourselves.

Women are taught to look outside ourselves for love and acceptance so that *we never find it*. Love is power, and when we know this love, we are unstoppable, and there’s a lot of people who would not be thrilled about that.

This photo is from our full moon Puja in Avalon this week. Our sister who is a Hindu devotee and tantrica lead us through a beautiful ceremony of gratitude, abundance and manifestation. I then stayed up all night to watch the lunar eclipse which I could see PERFECTLY atop a little hill in this sacred British countryside. It was like my version of going to the Oscars.

So my love, cultivate your beauty, turn on, acceptance, power and deep love through self adoration, and then share it with those YOU deem as worthy.

Thank you @priestesspresence for these lessons. I am forever changed.

P.S. yes, I made a yoni mandala and I’m so proud of it.
  • Hello from Avalon! I am deep in the mystery of the Sacred Feminine. My dear, I just can’t even begin to paint a picture of the magic I am experiencing. To be in this portal, this vortex of divinity is taking me to places I’ve never been. I planned on writing to you everyday here, but the world of social media has just eluded me.

But I’m popping in to your phone today to say this: find the spirituality that makes your heart sing. Find the divinity that makes you want to dance and laugh and cry at the beauty of it all. Find the sacred rituals that remind you of your true, pure essence. Find the place that puts love, actual love, at the center. The world is magic, and if you want to see that but just can’t, find someone who can show you.

Also, I wrote a thing today and it’s on my blog. It’s about getting my period for the first time after having Hazel, and the fact that something so sacred has been made dirty and taboo is a problem. So check your spam folders and the website and tell me your feelings.

I love you and the work we are doing here together, even in this small way.
  • I often think about the “movie of our lives” how we are born knowing who we are, and then we forget and then, if we do the work and show up for the initiations and the synchronicities, then there is the remembering. Remembering the essence of who we are underneath the performance, the patriarchy and the people pleasing.

And then there is the remembering of who we have always been lifetime after lifetime. And how every lifetime has prepared you for this one and the things you will do after you remember who you are.

I’m sitting in the airport on my way to Avalon, a sacred vortex of the divine feminine in England and I’m already getting this feeling like it’s going to be an epic sacred reunion of the ghosts of all the women I used to be.

The most important element of stepping into your brilliance is getting that you are spirit in human form and you came to remember who you are and then do even more good than you’ve done before.

How do you start to remember? Nature, meditation, travel, sisterhood, spiritual guidance and sacred containers. SPACE!

Do you have questions about spirit and the sacred feminine? Is this woven into your being or do you keep it at a distance? Tell me why. Can’t wait to share my trip with you. #avalon @priestesspresence #13moonmysteryschool #sacredfeminine image via @jennracioppi quote by @nikita_gill
  • Something shifted about 2 months ago, and I just decided it was time to stop f$&king around. My vision for my life had gotten small. I was focusing on necessity instead of abundance. The way I treated my body was mediocre. And I realized that my BELIEFS were driving my behavior. I believed that I could be successful, but not *too* successful. I believed I was a woman who would just never be in peak health. I believed that I would always be a slightly worse Mom than my friends. So I acted and performed like a mediocre person.

But guess what? I’m not a mediocre person, I just had mediocre beliefs. I did the work to change my beliefs, and you know what? My fullest potential, my authentic excellence, is so much bigger and more amazing than I have ever thought.

My behavior is changing. I’m doing things differently. I’m getting up at 5am and doing my sacred practice, I’m working out every day, I’m home at 3pm and being an incredible Mom. I’m creating a new program that is going to change so many lives. I’m laying a new foundation in my business that is setting me up to be a global brand. None of this will happen over night, but I knew I had to become the person who has my future vision NOW.

Here’s what I want you to know: you are not mediocre. Your beliefs are. You are brilliant, talented and here to change the world, you just aren’t ACTING like it.

When you think about stepping into your authentic excellence, what comes up? Do you feel excited? Scared? Guilty for wanting more? Like you’re not good enough? Tell me below.

You’re going to be hearing more about stepping into your fullest potential going forward... hope you’re into it 😘. #authenticexcellence #fullestpotential #sacredfeminine
  • Sunday was the last day I nursed Hazel. I knew this part of our relationship was coming to an end but I wasn’t exactly sure when. On Sunday, after nursing for a short time, she sat up, did baby sign language for “all done” and then started emphatically screaming “BABA BABA!” 😂. Is that a sign or what!? It’s amazing how babies just know.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I cried. Hazel is my last baby, and the close of this season of sharing my body brought tears of sadness and relief.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Jonathan asked me some beautiful questions like, “What was your favorite part about nursing?” “What was the hardest?” “What was the weirdest place you nursed?” I laughed and cried some more and remembered a time when I was nursing Marshall at our favorite cafe in SF where my Mom Gang spent 5-6 hours a day with our newborns, and Marshall was so distractable that he kept pulling off and my milk shot a stranger in the back of the neck 😳.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I then busted out the calculator and realized that I’ve been pregnant or nursing for 5 out of the past 6 years. What devotion.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I have so much more to say, and will do so in an upcoming Moonday Email, but for now, I’m proud of myself, and so grateful to my body for her sacrifice and love for these beautiful babies.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you’re a Mom, and you nursed (many don’t and I applaud that decision), what is your funniest nursing story? Tell me below.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So grateful that @jennymoloney captured this pic of us. I’ll treasure it forever. #momlife #nursingtips #weaningtips #sacredfeminine
