The Role of Trauma
We've all heard the phrase "'what doesn't kill you makes you stronger", and often, traumatic events can prompt people seeking ways to heal and grow. These events, although incredibly challenging, can become catalysts for dramatic life changes. Many people through their lives encounter events that test us to our cores, pushing us to question what we're made of and how we can heal. Sara has come up against her share of trials, which she used as fuel for an enlightening journey.

They help regulate all parts of our bodily system, influencing everything from our immune system to our emotions. And when you're out of sync, it can impact your whole life, causing imbalance and unease. Sara dives into this interconnectedness, opening up about the intricate relationship between our chakra system and energy codes. She explains how working with these energy centers, and understanding the ‘code’ of each chakra, can lead to emotional healing and energetic balance. With her guidance, anyone can learn to balance these often forgotten aspects of our wellbeing.
