The Power of Desire

Desire is a powerful feeling full of energy. It's the first step in igniting change in your life when you're feeling stuck. Desire moves you forward. The power of desire can help you intentionally create transformation to revitalize your life.

Using the Soul Art® process, life coaching techniques, and creative exploration, I guide you to uncover your deeper desires and find YOUR answers to fulfillment. Each person's journey is unique, your answers to fulfillment won't look like my answers. We dive deep into your own inner world to invite lasting change.

I have personally used these processes for almost 5 years. In that time I've uncovered my authentic self. I've gained the confidence to fully pursue my deeper desires and step through the fears that have held me back in the past. I've learned how to completely trust myself and live from a more connected, intentional place. I'm excited to guide you to do the same in your own life.

In this 5 week class you will:
•Receive step by step guidance in uncovering your deeper desires
•Break through the limits you've subconsciously placed on your self so you're ready to pursue a life you love
•Learn simple exercises that will help you have a stronger connection with your inner voice which helps guide you on the path to fulfillment
•Become more comfortable in creative exploration and how to bring the messages of your heart into your art
•Discover how to decode the important messages you receive
•Have support in putting those insights you receive into action so they can create revitalizing transformation
•Gain tools to help you have more day to day clarity
•Become more confident and able to enjoy life in a more full way

What to expect:
The Power of Desire is a journey of self discovery and transformation that is one part journaling, one part creative exploration. No art experience is necessary as we start very simple and build but an experienced artist will gain a new perspective.

Registration will close Sunday, August 7 and class will open Monday, August 8 with introductory information and exercises to get warmed up. Then each Monday after, you'll have access to new class material for the week. This will include written information, video, or guided mp3 audio depending on the week.

Personal growth can be uncomfortable at times and amazingly ecstatic other times. By engaging in this course, you are making a commitment to your own transformation. You will only get out of it what you put in, so please commit to showing up and taking the action needed. I am here with loving care to support you.

Divine Love Note- June27

Divine Love Note- June27- "Pause. In the busyness of the week be sure to pause and check in with yourself. How are you feeling? Be honest with yourself. Take a deep breath. Breathe even deeper, down into your toes. How do you feel now? What do you need in this moment? A short walk, a 20-minute nap, some time outside with your toes in the grass, a hug from a loved one, or maybe some chocolate? Will you honor those needs? Be sure to take these little pauses throughout each day. The busier the day, the more importantly self-reflection pauses are. Giving to and replenishing your yourself in little ways fills you up and helps you to more adequately give to others. Don't neglect your own care and well-being. Much love as you pause and reflect this week."

Divine Love Notes May 9

Divine Love Notes May 9-15: Listen to your heart. This is a week to relax a little and let your heart have a say in your day-to-day dealings rather than letting your mind rule in every decision and actions you take. The desires of your heart and your feelings can open up paths that the mind may not be able to see clearly. Let go of others' voices and let your heart lead. Take some time to rest in the stillness to listen. Listen to what bubble up, listen for the things that make you smile with delight, listen for the things that make you feel at peace. Hold those things close and follow their direction. Your heart will not lead you astray. Once you've rested, listened, and received direction, leap at the opportunities that come your way that are in alignment. Take action on the direction of your heart.

Divine Love Notes May1-7

Divine Love Notes May1-7: Keep the magic alive. The week may feel a bit dark at times. Things may come up that demand to be dealt with. It's important to face them rather than stuffing them down and hiding them or running from them. Dealing with this will be so beneficial in the long run! This doesn't need to be drudgerous though. How can you deal with the darkness of the week in a new way? Approach this in a way that turns the darkness to light. It's all in the way you look at it. Let your magic bleed into your week in ways that become inspiring. Loosen up, let it flow in new ways. Ways that can transform the dark heavy feelings of the week into lightness. It's time to transform the last bits of the past junk into inspiration for what lies ahead. What lies ahead is beautiful and it's waiting for you. How will you approach the darkness of this week in a new way so it can transform into magic? ‪#‎divinelovenotes‬

Student experience:
"This process was like unveiling a loving, clarifying message to myself. Seeing my art unfold on a page was seeing a reflection from the part of me that is clear and free of the noise of doubt. I was reminded of the tremendous resources I have access to within myself and I continue to study my finished piece for the message it gives me about where to focus, what to let go of, and what to allow." -Pippa
"This journey, was an incredible experience to put it lightly. The container created was so safe and loving that it allowed creativity to flow in a way that lit me up and set me free from my own judgements and limitations. I highly recommend that everyone embark on their own journey with Sara." -Sarah
Sara has the ability to create and hold a nurturing space for an individual's creative soul journey to begin. During a challenging transitional time, she patiently guided me through the process of rediscovering my vibrant, confident self. Non-judgmental and full of enlightening insight, Sara encouraged me to use my own intuition and find my own answers within. Working with her opened the door for a vital dialog to begin and for me to courageously acknowledge myself as an artist once more." -Julia

Spiraling Inward and Outward

 I live in the movement of the spiral. I circle around similar themes in my life and each time they come around I go deeper and find more puzzle pieces. Sometimes I live out loud, full of expression and outward motion. Other times I withdraw into my own cocoon to grow, expand. Spiraling deeper and wider with each circle.

The time within nourishes and fuels the outer expression. The outer expression encourages deeper reflection in my time within.

I go into times of inner growth thinking that I'm going to share my process of learning and growing. Yet, each time in the midst of it all I feel too raw and tender to open it to the world.

So here I am spiraling back out of the depths of an intense, incredible period of growth and self understanding. Ready to share, ready to shine again.

I have been building a foundation for four years to make money doing something I love and makes me feel radiant. In the beginning, I learned that it has something to do with helping others connect with their own creativity and intuition.

I fell in love with Laura Hollick's Soul Art process and became certified as a Soul Art Guide.

I took Connie Solera's Ignite: Fearless Painting Teacher Training class which created much of that foundation through embodying the artist title, deepening my own creativity and expression, making friends with my past, and welcoming my passion and devotion into my life in new ways.

When I signed up for the Laura Hollick's Nü Icon program the end of last year I thought I would be launching something from that foundation. Instead I found myself down in the mud and muck beneath my foundation, digging out and letting go of the unneeded junk, and growing deeper roots for a much more stable foundation.

I've learned so very much about myself. I've had tremendous growth.

I discovered that after my biological father left at a young age I had put up a wall to protect myself from receiving such crushing hurt by anyone else. This has distanced me from pain but also from deep fulfilling connection with others, leaving me feeling alone in the world.

I worked to dismantle the wall but in doing so felt raw and exposed. I felt so much. I was a wreck in public places with so much people energy swirling around me.

I withdrew further into my own inner world and found strong emotions. Sadness flowed from me. Resentment. Anger. More sadness. I felt stuck in their grip. I sought help from my naturopathic doctor. He explained how to integrate my emotion.We're often taught by society to contain, hide, or suppress our emotions. "No one wants to see your messy emotions" we hear. Yet it's such an important part of human existence. Once you listen to and honor one emotion, they all want some attention. So I let them flow, acknowledged them, thanked them for the gifts they were bringing.

While in that intimate inner space I also found separation within myself. The scenes of a childhood experience came to mind: camping in a powerful, torrential rainstorm with lightening and thunder crashing all around me. I realized that the feelings of fear in those moments caused feelings of being unsafe in my body and in this world and separation from my own power.

Soon after these realizations, I was gifted with an opportunity: experiencing a similar powerful storm with more wisdom and insight than I had during that childhood storm. I stood out in the pouring rain, facing fear, visualizing inner connection and integration, recognizing the beauty of Earth's power, and claiming my own power.

Such healing, understanding, and growth have come from these experiences!Now that so much has been cleared, healed and integrated, the last couple months have been all about true inner connection.

Communion with the Essence part of myself that is so wise, loving, compassionate, joyful, radiant, passionate, playful, and centered. She has the answers and direction to everything I need and desire. She's inside me, She IS me.

I'm learning to love Her, trust Her, value Her, honor Her more deeply.

I've found that's really what my whole journey is about and what I'm here to share with others: true reverence for Self.
