Flexibility May 12, 2015

Today was day were flexibility was needed.  And I don’t mean flexibility like a gymnast.  I mean flexibility of the mind and spirit.  Sometimes plans are made and they don’t come to fruition.  How do you respond and feel? I’ve had to work be flexible.   It was not always in my nature.  A plan would change and I’d be thrown.  I didn’t go with the flow, I’d melt down.  Having to recalibrate didn’t come easily to me.  I could have an entire day thrown even by the smallest of monkey wrenches.  And then I chose a career that required flexibility, acting.  To not make plans until the day of and even then it may even change moments before an audition.  Being and actor meant that your agent would call regarding your next day up until 6ish the day before and you might even get a call the day of.  And if you wanted the job you’d say,”Yes Please!” or ” Of course I can change my plans!”.  Flexibility became an art.  Learning to be able to move forward and go on the fly meant I had a better chance of getting the job. And I did.

 

This ultimately helped me in all areas of my life.  Let’s say friends couldn’t make dinner or plans simply changed it became my responsibility to find the opportunity in the situation and not the obstacle.  Knowing that I am the sole proprietor over my feelings and responses is incredibly liberating.  I know for me I’d rather live in the moment and not get caught up in the drama (Now what am I going to do!!), victimization (Ohhh this will make it so hard) or blame (If they had only called me sooner!) of it all.  By not buying into the finger pointing I’m given the opportunity to stay at ease.  Which is were I chose to live.  That place of Universal flow.  Because you never know what gift might come along by letting go of the stress.

 

So how flexible are you?  Where might you be able to let the blame go so that you have more room for the good stuff?

 

Happy Spring!

Live life like you’re on Vacation! November 19, 2013

vacationIt’s becoming cold here on the east coast so it got me thinking about vacation…..So wouldn’t it be wonderful if we could live everyday like we were on vacation… everyday? Well you can!  Stop and think about your frame of mind. What do you do differently when you’re on vacation.  Is it that you turn off all the various and sundry gadgets? Or you take a little bit more time for yourself.  What is it?  My favorite is that I have no schedule. Now I know that, that is not necessarily possible in our everyday lives.  We can’t just jump off the bus because we see an exquisite fountain in a park, but what is it that made us see the fountain in the first place?  What is it that sparks us to talk with people who we may never notice in our daily routines?  How differently do you breathe?  Lots of questions I know.  Take some time with this one. Moments in our day are so precious.  How can we stop and look up and look out so that we enjoy that moment like we’re on vacation versus our regular routine?  Again focus on your breath…. How differently do you breathe and why do you do so? Then how can you incorporate that into what you do daily? By allowing the breathe in we can allow for the spaciousness were those moments of spontaneous beauty can happen. I mean we all would love our dream vacation every day… but then again it would stop being our dream vacation then. So how wonderful would it be if we incorporated some of the mind-set into our daily life to make that life as full as if we were on vacation!

So go ahead and give it a try! Live life like you’re on Vacation!

Love and Light

 

A Week Ago Today… March 13, 2013

HandA week ago today I had a torn tendon in my hand repaired.  With every thing that has happened in my life I am reminded regularly of allowing and patience.  The Universe asks me to walk the talk.  I think of myself as a patient person.  I’m often even told on a regular basis that I”m SO patient.  That said I’m regularly tested on this front.  Whether I plan a phone call to discuss an important issue and the person is out of town or I have ordered a time sensitive package and it is late or  traffic is crazy and I think I will be late (notice these are time related for me?).  It could be any or all of these scenarios.  I’m not even going to bring in the health issues that can occur.  I regularly write, coach or talk about allowing. Even saying this word gives me peace.

The Webster definition of Allow is:  1. admit (an event or activity) as legal or acceptable  2. give the necessary time or opportunity for.  “Give the necessary time or opportunity for”,  This is my favorite part of the definition.  When buttons are pushed as they can happen even to the best of us.  How do you return to the start of allowing?  Where you don’t struggle or fight with your given circumstances?  I am a Huge fan of breath… for more reasons than the obvious.  It helps us to return to our natural state of loving.  Loving of self and others.  It centers us.  The breath is a mini meditation. The ability to stay in this state is a bit like being a child.  Most children are very allowing because they have yet to learn their ability to control their surroundings.  They trust.  Ah trust…. So much of what gets in our way is our inability to trust.  If we stay in a state of allowing the trust comes more effortlessly.  Now I don’t mean allow others to do to you anything they choose but allow life to have its grace and kindness that we all seek.

What will you do today to allow (without getting hand surgery)?  To remain at peace with yourself?  How will you stay connected to your breath?

Lots of Love!

I have bee talking a lot about this recently with my clients recently… It brings such joy!! Let me know how it works for you!

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we could live everyday like we were on vacation? Well you can!  Stop and think about your frame of mind or what you do differently when you’re on vacation.  Is it that you turn off all the various and sundry gadgets? Or you take a little bit more time for yourself.  What is it?  My favorite is that I have no schedule.

Live Like You’re On Vacation! July 21, 2011

I have a theory… When we are on vacation we are more open and tend to meet more people.  We hear about summer romances and vacation flings or better yet we meet a new partner!  What would happen if we lived our whole life like we were on vacation?  Now I know what you’re thinking….that we have our work and daily routines but what would happen if we  took a breath and slowed down a bit.  Become more conscious about our day???

When we are on vacation we tend to slow down and even breathe a bit more slowly.  We look up and out to see what’s around us. We might even get off the bus or out of the car to let’s say… look at a park that we might simply drive by on our regular travels.  But mostly we tend to talk more with people who we may just pass by…  We’ll talk to the waiter a bit more or the person sitting next to us on the beach. How are you different when you are on vacation?  What would happen if we looked up and looked out in our daily routine?  Breathe a bit slower? Smile??? Be open to new experiences? You might just be surprised at what and who might just show up. Worst case scenario  is that You might just show up in a more present way.  And how exciting is that!!

 

What is Sexual Empowerment…. January 30, 2011

As some of you may know I am a Certified Professional Relationship Coach who specializes in Sexual empowerment.  I’m regularly asked what Sexual Empowerment is. So I though I would write a little bit about here today…..

Every moment, every step, every feeling we have, we take a breath…we Breathe.  They say one conscious breath in and one conscious breath out is a mediation.  So I invite you to think what would happen if you take that moment of breath to unite with your spirit and truly enjoy that sensual moment with another?  Sexual Empowerment is a breath.  Is a powerful breath.  It is that moment when you have reached true interconnectedness with mind, body and spirit.  Now this connection may be with your partner but it may also be with yourself as well. There are myriad ways to reach this powerful level of union with self and that is where is must start.  By truly loving ones self inside and out you can then love another just the same.  So let’s come together and discuss how we can elevate the intimacy in your sex life to levels that you have only dreamed of!!

 

Love and Pink Light!

Sarah
