Let Go Or Be Dragged (what God has to do with my forced vacation)

blog 8.20(1)Not last week, but the week before (“24 robbers came knocking at my door” just kidding but extra points for anyone who knows what that’s from…anywho…moving on) I took a vacation.

I know this doesn’t seem like news. And it isn’t really. But in my own personal life, it was of very significant importance.

The Sunday before my vacation started, I lost my shit. Again. Couldn’t keep all my emotions inside.

For anyone who has been around for the past six months, you’ve seen a lot of tears happen. You’ve witnessed me sob on the floor. Grasp, search, and feel oh so lost.

And it all came to a head (again) a couple Sundays ago.

I was in that place that we all get to, when you finally feel like you’re “done” with whatever challenge you’re facing. Like “yep…I’m good. Handled that and it’s over with. YAY! Wash my hands of it and I’m moving on. Sweet! I”M FREEEEEEE!”

Right?

Wrong.

Because then you KNOW what happens.

It creeps back in unexpectedly when you see 25 license plates in one day (no joke) of the state where your ex lives even though the state is a billion miles away. Or you hear a song that reminds you of them. Or you’re struggling and forget that you can’t call the person that used to help with that particular type of struggle. Or you stumble upon a FB tagged post with them and another girl.

(I know you know what I’m talking about).

And then you cry and cry while you’re in yoga class and go home and read through all your emails from that person, basically torturing yourself while wondering, “is it time to reconnect and reach out?”

But then, you decide to sleep on it. Ride the wave. Be WITH the pain of whatever you’re feeling, knowing that whatever “solution” you were imagining (reaching out, getting on an airplane, becoming a nun) isn’t going to solve the “problem” because the answer doesn’t live outside yourself. AND there is another person involved who has their own agenda.

And this is where I was when I woke up on the Monday morning that my Team basically ordered me to take a no emails, no internet, no work-vacation (first in five years…CRAZY).

Needless to say, this has been a time of growth for me. Everything has changed in one short year. I built Wildheart out of thin air and got it to the place I wanted it to be.

Where it is a beautiful and loving family of souls on fire. And sometimes when you actually get what you want, you feel lost.

Even in terms of this said “breakup” mentioned above.

To be absolutely truthful, the relationship as we did it at the time, didn’t work. Ever. There was always distance (literal and figurative) and drama and struggle. We never appeared to be on the same page, minus a few blissful moments. When he was fully into it, I resisted. When I was fully into it, he resisted. And that’s not the type of dynamic I want in my “true love” scenario.

But yet, when you’re dealing with emotions and ego and fear of “will I be alone forever? And that man was absolutely incredible and whyyyyyyyyyy can’t it workkkkkkk??” and in the memory of all the absolutely ridiculously amazing times you had together, things get messy. And hard. And sad. And you forget about all the things that didn’t work and all the pain that happened at the end. And then you find yourself sobbing during your shavasana.

I’ve been reading a book lately that I’m really working with, Outrageous Openness by Tosha Silver. And it reminds me of something psychic Licia Morelli said on a guest coaching call inside the Wildheart Revolution this week.

blog 8.20(2)

Which is…the answers all come in the space BETWEEN thought and action. (Click to Tweet that!)

In rest. In being quiet. In the calm place. Not in the thinking, worrying, or fear place.

That all the answers are both within us and also we have no control over anything other than the way we go through life. And that there is an inner wisdom that will guide us if we let it.

That week, my guides led me to a vacation, which was the absolute best thing ever. And in that space between, I found a glimmer of faith. The understanding that things somehow always just work out for the greater good. That the Universe/God/Goddess/Higher Power will not let us miss an opportunity that is right for us, and will not let us be in a situation that is wrong for us.

I literally have to have faith in this. Or else I’ll fall apart. Again. And probably will. In which case you’ll be hearing about it. :) But that’s life. I seriously have come to the understanding that life is a big bunch of swings of the pendulum. We feel great then we feel horrible then somewhere in between then great again. It’s the swinging and changing that makes it life. And that’s ok.

So all we can do is sink into the space between our thoughts and  actions, and trust that in letting go and surrendering to what the Universe has in store for us in our best, brightest life, that things just work out. (Click to Tweet that!)

It’s a calming thought. And one that I literally have to practice every single day because it sure as hell doesn’t come naturally to this Scorpio control freak who wants to weave the web of my life into a perfect beautiful scenario.

But in these spaces between, it feels like heaven.

It feels good to hand it all over to “someone else” saying “you take care of it! I’ll just be here open to receiving whatever messages you have for me.”

My best friend and I have been giggling lately about this concept. It reminded me of the phrase “let go and let God,” which didn’t mean diddly to me until now. Or that Carrie Underwood song “Jesus Take The Wheel.”

Regardless of religious preferences, this is the place I’m at. Laying down the sword. Bowing on the ground, forehead on the Earth. Literally saying out loud…”please guide me, please help me, I can’t do it alone” while clutching whatever crystals I have in my hands and sleeping with them under the pillow. Because, hey, why not throw everything at it.

I don’t know where this space between will lead me, but I feel like I’m on a new path. And at the very least, I’m letting go and letting god. In the best way I know how.

blog 8.20(3)

The future is always 100% unknown, and yet, we all forget that. Up to now, I was worrying myself sick with the idea that there was actually something I could DO to change how I was feeling and the situation I was in. And in those quiet moments, I realized that the only action was necessary was to let go. Freefall.

And so here I am…falling. In that place of utter unknown. About love. About the future. And walking this path knowing that there has got to be some inner light that is guiding me (right?) Does this sound utterly ridiculous? Probably. But whatev. That’s where I’m at.

How about you? Where are you at? Are you feeling lost, worried, scared about the future? Do you feel like time is slipping away? Do you have a broken heart too? Are you feeling like you might lose your shit too? Are you better than me at “letting go”?

If so, let’s support each other. I would love to know where you’re at in the comments below.

In it together,

Sally

I’m a bit embarrassed to tell you this

Gift

 

Exactly one year ago today, I woke up in an absolute panic. For many reasons, but one of them being I couldn’t pay my rent. I had $700 to my name. And my parents had just written me a check for $1000 to “get me by.” Which embarrassed me. Humbled me. And scared me.

I had stopped doing one on one coaching so I could build this little thing called “The Wildheart Revolution,” which at the time was a semi-vague idea of an online space where people could go to get the help they need, in ANY area of their life, at ANY time of the day, at a price ANYONE could afford.

I had never done anything like it before. And more than that, nothing like it had been done before by anyone. Not in the way I envisioned it.

I didn’t have a roadmap. I didn’t have any clue if it was going to “work” or if anyone was going to want to be involved in it. All I had was a vision, a dream, and this guiding light saying “YES. THIS.”

And so I woke up in my bed, that morning one year ago with anxiety in my chest. Tears. I was afraid to open my computer. Afraid that the email I had just sent about Wildheart had fallen on deaf ears. Afraid that no one would “come to my party.” Afraid that I didn’t know what I was doing and this thing called Wildheart would fall apart and crash and burn.

But as the day went on, the member numbers grew. 5. 10. 20. 40. 60. And beyond. The energy buzzed. Tears rolled down my face. I couldn’t believe that it had worked. That people wanted in.

I celebrated and laughed and cried and watched in awe as amazing person after amazing person entered into the wild ride of the Wildheart Revolution, not having had any clue what the damn thing was all about. But with a feeling inside that just said “YES. THIS.”

As I look back on this past year, I see a year of change. Transition. Growth. Learning. Beauty. Vulnerability.

My entire life is different. What started out as an idea is now a sacred and special place where people are sharing their dreams and their hearts and really showing up and making changes in their lives in a real way.

We now have a brilliant team of Wildheart coaches (Natalie Vartanian and Ellen Ercolini) who coach on business and love and tarot and support the group.

We have subgroups (book club, meditation club, moms club). Community run activities like the Weekly Roundup (an email with all the details from the previous week’s Wildheart happenings), and accountability thread.

We have guest coaches. We have a Wildheart Montana Retreat coming up.

My life couldn’t be more different. All because of Wildheart.

It’s not an 8 week program that will solve whatever problem you have. But it is a place that if you let it, will change your life forever in a really deep way.

I’ve seen people build businesses. Fall in love. Travel the world. Decide to have a second baby. Change lifelong patterns. Switch careers.

But mostly I’ve seen hearts on fire. Souls ablaze. Honesty and truth and vulnerability in a way I haven’t seen anywhere else.

And THIS, more than the numbers, more than anything, is what I’m most proud of.

One year ago, it was me in my bed, alone, afraid, scared.

Today I’m so excited for what’s on the horizon for Wildheart. For what’s on the horizon for all the members.

Things are changing in a major way with Wildheart. There is so much going on behind the scenes that I can’t wait to tell you about.

But for now…Wildheart remains an intimate family. And I want to keep it that way.

So much can happen in one year if you let it. Your visions can become realities. That habit you’ve had forever can change. You can have that dream life you imagine for yourself. You CAN do it.

But you probably can’t do it all alone. And what better way to work on it then in a group of people just like you, with a team of coaches who are hell bent on helping you get where you want to go. And that’s where Wildheart comes in. All you have to do is show up.

I wasn’t planning on doing this today but I woke up and felt inspired to.

I want to offer you a discounted Wildheart membership. $100 off anniversary special. And if you sign up for a year membership I will throw in a free 30 minute 1:1 coaching session to kick off your amazing year of change ($150 value). OR…a super special signature series Wildheart bracelet. Your choice.

Anything is possible if you get clear on what you want and take consistent action in the direction of your dreams. Yes…it’ll be scary. Yes…you’ll feel like you can’t do it. Yes…you will come up against roadblock after roadblock. But that is all normal. Come hang out with us in Wildheart as we’re all this same journey. Working through it together.

If you’ve been wondering how on earth to get from where you are now, to where you want to be, this is your sign. If you’ve been a crumpled pile of tears on the floor for the past 6 months wondering how you’ll ever survive what just happened (like me), this is your chance.

If any of this resonates with you at all, come on over to the site and see what Wildheart is all about and grab your spot. Offer only good til Monday. Please let me know if you have ANY questions at all (I’m serious!).

Happy birthday to us all! Let’s make this year the best one ever.

Eating birthday cake as we speak,
Sally

P.s. Even if you don’t join Wildheart, why not give yourself a year goal? One thing I love to do is write my future self a letter, one year in the future, saying where I want to be in one year. You can do that by going to www.futureme.org.

P.p.s. I’m happy to say that I never cashed my parent’s check. And I have no problem paying rent now. :)

P.p.p.s. If you’re already a Wildheart member and you want to “re-up” with the yearly anniversary deal of the bracelet or session just let me know and we’ll get you sorted!

Be badass. #wearwildheart

Dear Wildheart,

I know I’ve been a bit quiet around here lately. And honestly, that’s because…things have been shifting for this me (as well as the entire Wildheart brand) BIG TIME.

I feel like the past six months have been a whirlwind…and not necessarily in the super fun, light, airy way. More in the way of everything that has been happening, has made me evaluate what I truly want in my life (personally) and what I want for Wildheart. Which can feel…sluggish.

It’s been an interesting time. I’ve cried a lot. Struggled. Felt stuck. Felt lost. Felt heartbroken. Felt like I got my butt kicked (you too?). And at the same time, now, at the end of it, I feel re-inspired. More myself. Softer. And also more determined than ever to make Wildheart the coolest f-in place to hang out on the internet.

There’s been some things brewing behind the scenes here. Lots of things. Ideas flying out of my head. Changes and additions and many many magical things being brewed behind the scenes while each day passes.

I can’t share the details right now, but I promise that it will be FUN, dynamic, irreverent (in true Wildheart fashion) and you WILL NOT WANT TO MISS OUT ON ANY OF IT. I get chills just thinking of what we have up our sleeves here at Wildheart HQ.

Part of that is more Wildheart products that you can rock out into the real world. And as a little teaser, I wanted to offer you the newest addition to the Wildheart family. The “Copper Stamped Wildheart Bracelet.”

Copper Stamped Wildheart Bracelet




These are all handmade by a Montanan, living in California (which is the opposite of me!). Copper plating. Rope cord. And blue woven clasp. $32 including shipping and tax (if you’re in the US). They aren’t officially being offered in my store yet, which is why there’s just a pic of my arm with the bracelet on it and not some super dope photo campaign around it.

But that’s Wildheart. We do the best we can with what we got and we SHARE SHARE SHARE the cool things we’re up to.

And that’s what I’m here to do. Share this AWESOME bracelet for you. So you can WEAR WILDHEART everyday. So you can be reminded and inspired to make the choices that feel most aligned with your heart and soul.

And you can remember to carpe the HELL outta your diem.

There are only ten of these…total. So hop aboard and grab yours now by clicking the “buy now” button right here:




Shipping is included if you’re in the US. If you’re International, email me at sally@sallyhope.com and we’ll get you a new “buy” button.

Can’t wait to see how you Wear your Wild HEART.

Much love,

Sally

P.s. These are copper! Which means 1) They look super dope; and 2) If you get them wet they might turn your skin green (depends on the skin…doesn’t do it to me but does do it to my friend) so don’t go dunking these puppies in the river)

Because Two Whiskeys Are Better Than One

Last week I went to a baseball game on a whim, with my best friend.

 

We hopped on the BART train (bay area public transportation) like a couple of teenagers who just snuck out of the house.

With whiskey in our water bottles, extra eyeliner, and sassy attitudes, we giggled and laughed the whole way to the park.

 

And when it came time to “sneak in” our water bottle to the game, it brought me right back to being 16 years old when i had to “sneak in” beers through my bedroom window. Or try to get the older kids at the liquor store to buy us beer for the weekend.

Or the rush I used to get when I just decided that I was to be backstage at whatever concert I was at. Or be best friends with whatever celebrity I saw at the bar that night.

It reminded me of Reckless abandon. Freedom. Deciding what you want and then making it happen. Even if it seems impossible or ridiculous.

In my career of doing this…crazy amazing things have happened. Because I went for it. I asked for the dance. But had I not gone for it, nothing would have happened.

And this reminded me of everything in life and in business.

If you don’t say yes to the opportunities, or don’t create your own….nothing happens. (click to tweet!)

If you don’t put yourself out there, no one knows about you.

If you don’t get in the van, you’ll stay exactly where you’re at.

So much of the time we feel like we don’t have what we want, but yet aren’t willing to do anything to truly change that. Or feel like we don’t know HOW to change that.

So I wanted to come up with a fun list of things to keep in mind if you’re feeling stuck. If life is feeling a little bit lackluster. I hope you enjoy it. XOXO

When the opportunity shows up, take it

When the opportunity isn’t there, create it

Don’t try to do it alone (two whiskey water bottles are better than one)

Follow your instincts

Ask for the dance

Say yes when asked to dance

Get in the van

Try something different (do the opposite of what you usually do)

Be rebellious

Question your own thoughts

Have fun

When you need help, ask for it

Be around loved ones as much as possible

Be clear on what it is you want

Ask for guidance on how to get it

I wrote an email to my newsletter list this weekend. And one of the people who responded is psychic Licia Morelli. And she wrote:

“I get the image of you steering a ship and the course is in the midst of being righted. Your first mate (I believe your partner or someone who is with you and around you appears from behind out of nowhere and is back at your side) he’s coming and standing next to you guiding your course.

But you are the Captain and you choose how you ultimately get there- the stars are your map- keep following your instincts.”

And this all feels very on par for the adventure I’m currently on.

I just had the feeling I needed to leave town. Grab the van. Start driving. And figure it out along the way.

Same thing with the baseball game. And getting backstage. And everything.

Our hearts and instincts know what’s best. But we ignore the messages all the time.

What I wish for you is this…Follow your arrow, wherever it points.

And if you want help doing that, I hope you check out the Wildheart Revolution because none of us can do it alone. Because knowing the right move or the direction of your arrow isn’t always super clear.

Because two whiskeys are better than one. (click to tweet!)

Because you need all the support you can get to live the exciting life you’re imagining for yourself.

I want that for you. And I see it happen every single day inside the Wildheart Revolution. My members are doing things they never thought they could. Are sharing in ways they’ve never been able to anywhere else. It’s so hard to describe what it’s like in there…I just know that CHANGE IS HAPPENING. We’re a peacefully rebellious army whose goal is to fight for the very best lives possible.

That is the Wildheart Revolution.

And we want YOU.

Doors for Wildheart are currently open, but only until tomorrow. And if you hop in now, price of membership is $100 off. So don’t miss it. Don’t forget to say YES to the dance. YES to the adventure.

See you backstage,

Sally

You Belong Somewhere You Feel Free

Where you belong

 

I’m supposed to write a super slick and sexy blog post to you today, because I’m in the middle of a launch for my membership community, Wildheart Revolution. Marketers tell me that I need to speak to your pain points. Massage the message. Be strategic.

But I’m a Wildheart, and that means that I honestly can’t do anything that doesn’t feel resonant or real for me, no matter how many statistics say I should do it.

The truth is…I strongly dislike launches. And I hate all that I’m supposed to do during them. I hate the way I feel like I’m never doing a good enough job, or I don’t ever quite have the right formula.

Being in business is weird. It’s like you start out because you believe in something. You want to make a difference in the world. And you want to paint your life with exactly the colors you want to use.

And then somewhere along the line you learn that your box of crayons isn’t what gets people to look at your painting. And so you spend tons of cash learning how to use the industry standard’s box of crayons. And no one buys your things still.

Why? Because everyone can tell the difference between a painting that was commissioned for a generic hotel, and a painting that is a raw and utter expression of the artist’s soul.

For me, today, my soul is tired. A bit road weary. But while being a bit under the weather, I can tell you I love WIldheart with all my heart and soul…and THAT feeling is what I want to relay to you.

I believe in it. I know it works. I see it every single day with my members who are doing things they never thought possible or sharing parts of themselves they’ve never been able to show.

I’m not trying to sell you an “e-course” or a solution to all your problems. I’m not trying to tell you that my way is the only or best way to go.

But what I am doing is inviting you to discover for yourself what might be possible when you truly say YES to yourself. To making real changes in your life that actually make a real difference. I’m inviting you to see yourself…even more. And love that person…even more.

To join me on the bathroom floor, crying. To give each other a knowing glance of understanding when sh*t gets real in your life and you feel stuck. To partake in your own humanness and enter into a human experience with people who are willing to jump into the fire with you.

It IS a Revolution after all.

And I’m here for the long haul.

Now…Wildheart probably won’t solve your life in 5 easy steps. It probably won’t fix whatever is broken in your life (mostly because one of the tenants of Wildheart is that you’re not broken…there is nothing wrong with you…you’re just a human having a human experience).

But what it WILL do is give you the opportunity to really f*cking try to have all those things you say you’ve been wanting. To be a part of something bigger than just an online business group. To experience something more dynamic than just a 1:1 coaching relationship.

To be at the ground level of a Revolution that is just beginning to take shape. To help carry the torch.

To BE the Revolution. BE the change. BE Wildheart.

That’s what this is all about.

A Revolution where people are deciding for themselves how they want their lives to be. People who are buying their very first minivan and expanding their families. To people who have just opened up their marriages for the very first time. To people who have gotten into an RV and embarked on their very first road trip. Or people who are entertaining the idea for the first time ever that maybe (just maybe) there is a bit more to life than clocking in to that job you’ve been going to for the past 20 years.

Wildheart knows no age. No gender. No “path.”

Wildheart is the Revolution for the people who know that living from their hearts is the only way to go. (TWEET THIS)

Who are a bit wild, in all their own ways. Who don’t resonate with all the other stuff that’s out there.

Wildhearts FEEL it. There is something that bubbles up in your belly or your heart when you imagine yourself on your own open road. Steering your own ship. You KNOW you’re meant for a beautiful journey. And you’re (scared/excited) to set sail. And the beautiful thing about the Revolution is that we are all here to be your net. To support you if you feel like you’re falling.

Wildheart is not for everyone. I know that. And you might not be ready yet to sign up just yet (or ever). But you’re reading this because something I’ve said somewhere along the line sparked something in you. Maybe even if it was just a tiny ember.

And so all I ask right now is that you check it out. Wildheart. See if it’s the right fit for you. See if it makes that ember grow ever brighter. And if it doesn’t…no problem.

I don’t know where Wildheart will end up but it has wings and it’s in flight. I imagine that you are too. I feel it so strongly in my bones. It’s a new way of living. And I want to take you along for the ride, if that’s the kind of adventure you want to be on.

What do you have to lose?

All My Wildhearted Love,
Sally
