Why the BIG Loves are so important

As I sat on the plane from Sydney to Melbourne last night (after deciding to make the big move down south), I said goodbye to my BIG Love.

And in that moment I was reminded of how hard it is….

How hard it is to say goodbye.

There’s nothing easy about having a big love.

It’s usually heaps of fun, but challenging at times because you’re so heavily invested in the outcome. Then incredibly difficult to say goodbye.

So WHY did I do it?

I followed my heart.

And my heart was literally aching for months before I made this decision. The muscles surrounding my heart, my pericardium were trying to tell me something and I wasn’t listening.

My soul was screaming for a change and I wasn’t taking action. It was calling me to something bigger because I was playing too small.

So in true Sarah style (cause I don’t do things by halves), I had a massive wake up call a month ago which I couldn’t ignore. It was like someone sitting opposite me screaming across the table to listen.

So I did…I listened.

To what I knew was right in my heart of hearts even though my mind was telling me something else.

My mind was attached to the familiar person I had become accustomed to over the last 4 years. And it was not appreciating the fact that I was considering a change.

My heart was calling me to a new adventure.

What that was going to look like, I wasn’t sure. Where it was going to take place, I didn’t know.

But I knew that Sean and I were at different stages on our journey.

We had been walking side by side over the last few years teaching each other valuable lessons.

Supporting each other during tough times and learning to really love on a level that neither of us had experienced before.

So what’s the problem you might be wondering…

Here’s the thing.

I am a firm believer that people come into our lives at the perfect time to teach us exactly what we need to learn. And they may stay a long time or a short time.

If we’re a smart cookie, we’ll lap up the lessons like they were our first gulp of water on a hot summers day. And as a fast learner that means we get to move onto the next lesson.

Whether that same person can teach you that next lesson is a different story though.

And in my case, I could see clearly that Sean and I needed to go on our journey without each other to get the next lesson. Otherwise we’d hold each other back.

Now let me tell you that is not an easy decision to make.

Having this level of awareness doesn’t make it any easier. In fact ignorance is bliss. You don’t know what you don’t know!

But once you know, you can’t un-know. And once you see you can’t un-see.

So then you’re in a pickle. Do I stay with this person who I love or do I move onto the next stage of my journey on my own?

Am I brave enough to feel the fear of uncertainty and do it anyway?

In my case, YES I AM.

I prefer to run towards my fears rather than shying away from them.

If it’s hard or scary, then I tell myself that’s even more reason to do it!

To conquer that.

I know that growth only occurs outside my comfort zone.

I’ve adopted a model of continuous improvement. In myself.

To be the very best version of myself so that I can have the biggest impact possible on other people’s lives.

And if my partner doesn’t share the same vision or isn’t at the same place in their journey, then it causes a misalignment with our energy.

We must be aligned with our highest intention in order to have the most successful relationship. Because if we don’t then our vibrations don’t match and it causes problems.

You’re heading in one direction and they’re heading in another.

And so was the story of Sarah and Sean. As we grew together, we also grew further apart.

Does that mean he wasn’t my soul-mate? No.

Because I know we can have many soul mates. And I’ve had several already!

Our true energy as a human being is pure love. Which means we can have a loving connection with anyone we choose to.

If we are fully connected to our true nature.

And in order to be the truest version of myself, I had to make a tough call.

I consider this to be Living and Practicing a Brave Life. Doing what’s right for your soul even when it’s hard.

With love,

Sarah xo

A perfect reminder, as this is something I have typically struggled with.  I have so many ideas which I’m great at starting but then fail to keep the momentum going and stick with them 💃. .
Big thanks to @businesschicks for putting on a great event last week ❤️🙏.
Instagram post 2110038789586226099_1688634438 Now is the time. Don’t wait a moment longer to become who you know you are destined to be. We must let go of all the ideas of who we think we ‘should’ be, in order to step into the possibility of becoming who we could be. Let’s do it together 😌❤️x
Instagram post 2082339406950638347_1688634438 It’s so easy to worry about what others think of us and interesting how rarely we believe they’re thinking nice things about us!
I’ve recently taken to reminding myself that what happens in other people’s minds is actually none of my business. Whether they think nicely or otherwise about me is completely out of my control...
Worrying about something I can’t change is a waste of time and energy. Instead I prefer to focus on my own thoughts about myself. Because these are the ones that matter most and I can always change them! .

Instagram post 2075802097887383456_1688634438 So often I make things waaayyy more complicated than they need to be!
So I’m practicing letting everything be easy and taking the path of least resistance.
This is taking some time for my mind to reprogram and allow life to be easeful every moment. But I’m committed! 👊
Instagram post 2074412155261077908_1688634438 Continuing to get out of my own way by letting go rather than holding on, pushing or driving is a continual lesson that I keep on learning.
My latest manifestation of this was a moment a week or so ago of inspiration to do a Masters in the US. It was super last minute with the course starting in 8 weeks. I had to work really hard to get my application and all the associated bits and pieces rushed through. I was exhausted. This should have been enough of a red flag for me! But no...my taurean determination 😳 kicked in and wanted to give it everything. Having done and given it all I had, I surrendered the outcome to the Universe... and got knocked back! I didn’t get in. All that efforting and energy spent pushing uphill for the last week and a half. .
It is clear to me now that I’m actually already on the right path doing what I’m doing right here in sleepy Byron Bay 😌 and there was no need to ‘do’ anything else other than simply keep being present in the here and now.
It’s clear to me AGAIN - that when things are right they’re EASY! And that my pushing, blocks the natural flow of energy that is already right here in this very moment.
Warm hugs, Sarah ❤️xo
Instagram post 2062017934847768958_1688634438 Hi 👋 I’m Sarah. I’ve been finding it hard lately to articulate what I do when people ask me since I do a number of things. And I’ve been thinking long and hard about what I really value and what Living A Brave Life stands for. So I thought I’d give it a shot today. .
Connection, Courage, Curiosity. This is the mantra of Living A Brave Life. As a Soul-Connector and Meditation teacher, I help others to develop a healthy relationship with themselves so they can have fulfilling relationships with others. In an increasingly disconnected world; anxiety, loneliness and feelings of isolation are becoming more common. These symptoms of 'disconnection' block the energy with ourselves, stopping us from connecting with others. Through whole hearted relational coaching and mind mastery meditation, I take people on the journey back to their true selves. Fusing the best of Science & Spirituality, either one on one or in small group workshops, I've had the privilege of working with people all over the world in helping them to live a brave life.
Hope that makes it a bit clearer! 🤗❤️

Instagram post 1980869925028678517_1688634438 Freedom isn’t something you get from outside. 
It’s liberation from within...freeing yourself from your old thought patterns and behaviours. 
Now that’s true freedom 🙏❤️
