Work with Me: Life Coaching

Dear Brave Soul,

I know how challenging life internally and externally can be.  Believe me, I’ve been there, even after years of personal growth work, I still have my moments, days, even months of change and transformation that can really rock me to the core, challenging the old, core beliefs and centers within myself.

Some days I wonder, am I good enough?  Will this ever change?  Am I ever going to get there?  (And where is this “there” anyways?!)

And, you know what?  I keep on moving forward, ever forward, trusting in the systems and tools I use, trusting in a higher power I call God, Source, Universe, Life, continuing to honor my personal daily practices like praying, yoga, Body Centered Awareness, and “following the energy,” and listening to my “inner wise self,” as SARK calls it, or my Higher Self.

Through it all, I come back into my center, in my body, alive and empowered to meet life again and again.  It’s sometimes relieving, sometimes exhilarating.  Sometimes I laugh, sometimes I cry.

Through it all, though, I know, and my faith and trust deepens, that Life, God, the Universe, has GOT MY BACK and I’ve got it’s, by showing up every day to my fullest!

I believe that we ARE Life’s, God’s, Source’s, manifestation of Life’s Greater Goodness in real time.  So, ultimately, no matter how much I want to throw a tantrum and pout about it sometimes, it’s UP TO ME, and it’s UP TO YOU TOO to show up in a way that creates the life we want to actually live, experience and enjoy!

I’m learning how to be more ME and I want to support you in being more YOU because I believe that we are all here with a special gift and energy to share with life.

If I’m holding back because I don’t think feeling angry and expressing it is “spiritual” or I’m not evolved enough if I get triggered and respond from a reactive place, I’m not actually being all of me.

The goal here is to BE all of me, to continue learning, growing, and evolving the old patterns and beliefs that have been ingrained in me from the past so that I can truly experience the life I want.  This life is Free to Be myself, and love all of me unconditionally and I want to support you to be yourself, loving all of you unconditionally, in ways that serve all.

If this makes sense to you and your heart is melting or screaming “YES!” read on!  If not, you’ll know when the time is right for us to work together and I invite you to trust this and then click here for the next step!

Free to Be Life Coaching with Salsa Sarah

Want a NEW way of doing things?

Ready to SHOW UP Fully?

Want to WAKE UP excited about your life every day?

Want to BE the person you want to see in the world?

Want more personal FREEDOM and Self-EMPOWERMENT?

Want to be LOVEd for exactly who you are?

Want your RELATIONSHIPS to SHINE?

Still looking for recognition and approval from those around you?

Let’s get ALIGNed together.

I am here.  I understand what you are going through because I’ve been there too.  We go through similar things on different paths all sharing what we call this “human experience”.   I want to support you with the tools and skills I continue to acquire to save you time in your journey, so you don’t have to go through everything I did and can short cut to your own personal, spiritual and life successes!

Now, let me be frank, there really IS no short cut.

In order to transform, you’ve got to be willing to face what’s there, to walk through the fire and have the COURAGE and CLARITY to let go of that which was not yours to begin with, set healthy boundaries in your life so you can make empowered decisions and choices and BE who you want to be in the face of anything!

I can provide you with transparency, a clear space to transform, and an intention to support and offer you that which is of highest value to you and the whole in our work together.

Are you ready to Walk This Path with me?

I am.

In working with me, I support you to…

  • Get connected with your deeper truth
  • Listen to and trust your inner guidance and intuition
  • Come back into your body fully
  • Love all of yourself continuously
  • Design the life you want to live
  • Be empowered in choices and decision making
  • Gain clarity on your needs and core values
  • Live in alignment with that which is true for YOU!

Click here to get this ball rolling NOW!

What if this doesn’t “work”, you may be asking?

Let’s be real, I believe it is intention + action that brings about desired results.

What is your intention for doing this work?  How much do you want this life you’ve always dreamed of?  What’s the most important thing about this change?  What’s the reality if nothing ever changes?

Believe you me, I know what it’s like to go head to head with some pretty stubborn, old beliefs inside myself.  I understand what it’s like to realize that I’ve been allowing some one else’s beliefs or energy around me, life, money, sex, relationships and more to run my life.

This sucks!  It can feel frustrating, scary and down right hopeless at times.  Though, just like my dad told me years ago, while driving around a curvy road on upcountry Maui, “You’ve got to keep looking for that light.  It’s usually just up around the next corner and often times people give up just before they reach it.”

I believe nothing is a coincidence.  You are here for a reason.

We are the Creators of our Own Experience!

The most important thing to remember is that we are creators: you and I.  We get to create whatever we want.  When we are empowered, we tend to create from a place of choice and love.  When we are disempowered, we can sometimes create from the shoulds or have to’s, which can stem from fearful thoughts or old beliefs.

My ultimate goal is to get you back in the drivers seat of your life, actively and consciously co-creating your greatest life with yourself, life and others so that you can contribute in huge ways to a great world we want to live in!

What’s the Next Step?

Click here and tell me more about you so I can see whether working together is an optimal fit for the both of us!

So much Love and Light on your journey and until we meet again,
