Reclaim Your Footing

Live With Presence, Hope, and Grace After a Life-Altering Loss

Your 3 Month Journey of Healing Into a New Reality 

Life’s thrown you a major curveball, and the ground beneath you isn’t as solid as it once seemed.

  • Your mother has died, either recently or maybe a few years have passed. Those around you (and sometimes even you) are ready for you to “get past it,” yet you still find yourself wanting to pick up the phone to talk, or are unsettled at how easily you fall apart at the most unexpected reminders. Her favorite food. A song on the radio. A mention of the place where she grew up.
  • Perhaps you’ve come through a horrific illness, or are learning to live with what is now chronic. On the outside, you may look fine, but inside, you’re struggling to express yourself in key relationships, or to feel understood by those who “just want to help.” You’re not even sure you recognize yourself at times.
  • Or you’ve reached a point in your life where the amount of change and loss has taken a toll. Old friendships no longer nourish. Once key people have died, moved away or moved on. You’re facing your future with a clear view of decline and mortality on the horizon, and old spiritual supports aren’t working as they once did.

The sure footing you once counted on is gone, or you recognize maybe it wasn’t ever truly there.  You have a million emotions running through you, along with the need to show up for your work, your family, and the rest of your life.

Your heart, mind and soul need as much support as possible as you traverse the new and unfamiliar territory you find Be Lifeyourself in.

It may be very early in your journey, or it may be that you’ve been walking along this road of change, challenge, and disruption for a while. Either way, you are more than ready to receive the kind of support and guidance that will strengthen your emotional resilience and help you feel you’re back on solid footing, even as the ground continues to shift.

As you move through this program, you will:

  • Experience less anxiety as you learn to embrace uncertainty.
  • Be reminded of your inner wisdom so it becomes a reliable ally as you walk the path of change.
  • Increase your ability to deal with difficult emotions.
  • Gain an expanded vision beyond your current circumstances, and be reminded of the larger context in which your life is held.
  • Release old paradigms so you can give life to new, more relevant ones.
  • Have someone who is unconditionally on your side, with no agenda of her own.

We’ll cycle through three core components as you walk the labyrinth of loss and what lies beyond. Each is powerful on its own, and together they create a strong web of comfort and resiliency you will come to rely on again and again, during difficult times as well as hopeful ones.

First, Root Yourself In Mindful Awareness

Mindfulness is the foundation for everything else; it establishes the ground from which you actually can live with greater presence, hope and grace. It carves a path to greater satisfaction by allowing you to be with things Meditation Mind and Bodyexactly as they are with compassion and awareness.

It’s natural to want to push away from fear, pain and uncertainty; unfortunately, that also often has the opposite affect. What we are trying to achieve is a level of protection and denial. What we end up with is disconnection and more pain.

As you develop mindful awareness through specific exercises and meditations (no worries if you’ve tried meditating and “failed” in the past – my specialty is helping you find your own way in), the space between worrisome thoughts grows larger. It’s in that space that the seeds of peace are watered.

Second, Relieve Stressful Thinking Through Inquiry

Here you will begin learning how to question stressful thoughts and gain more ease in being with what is. It’s easy to feel at the mercy of your thoughts, especially when pain or fear seem ever-present. As you release the grip of painful, circuitous thinking, fresh insights and understandings will emerge.

These inquiry practices will give you the tools to learn that your thoughts – even the most worrisome ones – are not as powerful as they seem. And that you alone have the power to disengage from them so you can feel in control; even when so much seems out of control. The very real stresses of your situation will feel less heavy when you can calm and make friends with your mind.

Third, Learn Energetic Techniques That Physically Shift Your Reality

With so many changes and emotions to process, it’s easy to get turned around and ungrounded. Learning to embody peace by incorporating energy practices into your daily routine is key to coming home to yourself in the new reality.

Together we will craft a toolkit for you based on time-tested systems of bodymind and energy based healing. I’m all about keeping it simple, because life is complex enough! The techniques you’ll learn are not complicated, yet will allow you to self-soothe in healthy ways and build new levels of resilience and fortitude for even the rockiest of times.

Special Bonus Support

To help you make these changes and insure that they’ll actually stick, you’ll receive three healing sessions with me. These healings, based on the path of Kabbalah and its Tree of Life, shift your relationship to life at a foundational level. They work at the ground of your being, allowing the changes to take root and grow in a robust and organic way.

 

Here is what my dear client Claudia experienced when she Reclaimed Her Footing:


Chemotherapy is a challenging treatment to experience on many different levels and in numerous ways. My most sensitive system is my Central Nervous System and it was being seriously affected. For four months, I had been bolting out of rest and sleep with severe anxiety.

My thinking had become obsessive, especially with those events remaining unresolved, surfacing over and over again, like a hamster on an exercise wheel. I was concerned these reactions were interfering with my body’s ability to heal. Chemically induced or not, things felt out of control and it was at this time I decided to seek help in maneuvering my way through this stressful time.

After unsuccessful trial runs with four therapists, a health practitioner handed me Sharon’s card. I took note of “Reclaim Your Footing after a Life Altering Diagnosis or Loss”. This was intriguing. Experiencing cancer is life altering and certainly included loss; loss of mobility, loss of a business I was planning, loss of life as I had known it with lots of unknown ahead. Could this be a fit? There was nothing to lose.

We spoke on the phone and explored why I was contacting her and what she had to offer. Listening to her delivery, I immediately felt comfortable, which allowed me to be totally forthcoming about my needs. I was also taken by how closely she listened and her reiteration of what I had said, making sure she clearly understood what I was communicating. There were no assumptions on her part. For the first time, I sensed this would be a wonderful fit. I was not to be disappointed.

As the weeks progressed, I found that stress was continually diminishing and the need for my mind to repeat things over and over again dissipating. Thoughts my mind had held onto with an iron fist were being transmuted and were no longer the issue they had been.

Unlike in my past, I now love working with these practices on a daily basis. I finally have tools to shift how I respond no matter what comes along, and positive results come quickly. This has created an ease in life.

With Sharon’s clear yet elegant ability to communicate, the pairing of Mindful Meditation and Byron Katie’s “The Work” is a perfect union and what I have been searching for. The addition of the energy healing sessions and her skills in Kabbalistic Healing have created a solid foundation, allowing for true healing of body, mind and spirit.

This 3 month journey begins with a two-hour Virtual Retreat (or, if you prefer, we can meet in person Hands And Frangipanis In A Spa Poolat my home in the Hudson Valley of NY). This will allow you to carve out undisturbed time for reflection, visioning and self-care. It is also where we will begin creating the foundation of mindful awareness that is essential for the time ahead.

After that, here’s how our time together will unfold:

  • We’ll meet one hour weekly, either in person or via phone or video {so distance or difficulty traveling are not an issue}.
  • As we move through each piece of the process, there will be written and audio materials provided to guide and ground you in the practices between sessions.
  • I will be available to you for unlimited email support during business hours throughout, and special mini-phone sessions if needed. Together we’ll create a strong container of relationship, the most fertile soil for change and growth.

There is so much peace and wholeness that is possible, even as you are dealing with the upset and confusion that your experience of loss is evoking. Let’s talk so you can get a sense of how that will look for you.

The best way to do that is in a Reclaim Your Footing Discovery Session. You can schedule your confidential, complementary, no obligation consultation with me at: .moc.1503201759eracf1503201759lesfo1503201759traeh1503201759@nora1503201759hs1503201759 I look forward to hearing from you and helping you gain clarity about your best next steps.
