The Path of Power with Sara Salam

For my Soul Coaching site, please click here.

We live in a time of great change. As a dear friend of mine once put it: “Our actions over the next few years will shape life on Earth for the next billions of years.”

While we may at times feel as though the issues in the world are too large for us to tackle alone, these issues are powerfully linked and affected by the daily intentions we set, the emotions we cultivate, and the actions we take. What we see happening in the world is a reflection ~at least on some level~ of our own inner world.

Creating a world that is whole and healthy is intricately linked to our own health and wholeness. If we desire peace, we must cultivate peace inside. If we value inclusiveness, we must be inclusive in our actions. If we desire understanding, meaning and joy, we must find ways to flow through various experiences in life with a sense of joy, meaning and understanding.

This is where true power exists and where we can shift our experience in life: within ourselves. This is what I call the Path of Power (POP).

Over the years, I have lived many walks of life. I have been a daughter, sister, student, competitive athlete, musician, business consultant, Krav Maga instructor, entrepreneur, business owner, executive coach, leadership team facilitator, aunt, godmother, rape crisis counselor, shamanic healer and soul coach. These walks of life have given me many opportunities to apply subtler, unseen energies practically into our lives so that their effects can be felt, experienced, lived, and seen eventually.

There is a field of energy that runs through all living matter. In fact, most matter is mainly energy. The energetic dimension is what connects us all. The physical is an extension of the spiritual, the energetic. This dimension has been explored and supported by ancient medicine men and women to modern quantum physicists.

So how do we apply energetic principles to our lives?

Each person is unique and yet we all come with inherent potential and specific purpose. This purpose is supported by an infrastructure ~which includes our brain, body, senses, and intuition~ and the ability to choose which actions to take moment by moment. These aspects form our individual navigation system. However, a navigation system cannot function unless it has been loaded with helpful, easy to navigate, and healthy maps.

Helping individuals create their own spiritual or energetic map to life, activating their inherent potential, initiating the next part of their journey, and elevating the way they walk on this Earth, are the areas that I care about.

It has been my experience that when we activate our potential, know what our gifts and talents are, offer our gifts to the world in meaningful ways, and use our navigation system cleanly and safely for all living beings involved, we are able to create a life that is personally meaningful and valuable, elevates those we touch, and creates solutions for whatever challenges humanity and Earth face in its current time.

Each person completes a particular facet in what has been called a “Global Earth Mandala”. For a healed and peaceful world, we need each facet to be whole and healed and each person to be able to express their gifts fully and meaningfully, with a sense of joy in the heart. It is in this expression that we elevate ourselves, our loved ones, our community, and the world.

I feel passionate about assisting others to walk their authentic journey in meaningful and valuable ways, embodying and expressing their full potential in order to create a world we all desire to live in.

I offer my gifts to those who find their way to me. I believe that there is a reason you are reading these words and have found your way to my website. It may lead you to work with me, or it may guide you to the next person or place on your journey. Whatever it does, it is my intention that you will live consciously and increasingly aligned with your heart and your inspired vision for our world.

I send you blessings of Joy, Beauty and Wellbeing on the journey ahead.

Munay, Yachay, Llankay.

The Map

The Path of Power helps you create your own authentic map to life. It includes a comprehensive set of personal aspects and relationships we must tend to in order to create a healthy, peaceful and meaningful human existence. I describe and utilize this framework in the Path of Power Mentorship and Self Defense Journey, as well as in my programs for veterans and couples:

Sacred Reciprocity

I want my service to be available to those who truly benefit from it and who come with a sincere desire and commitment to learn, heal and grow, regardless of their momentary financial abundance situation. We need people who are alive, aware, awake, and who are willing to change themselves in order to embody and express increasingly healed aspects of themselves so that they can serve our human family as well as other life on Earth with loving care, lasting joy and deep sincerity. It’s the reason I make as much as possible available for free. However, if you are in position to give a financial gift, regardless of whether we work together or not, I welcome it.

A Note On Group Sizes

Each person and group is unique. Therefore, I tailor the content of my offerings specifically to those who come to me. My groups are small, so I can be fully present with those I serve. I allow only up to 8 individuals per group in my Trainings, up to 16 individuals in my Seminars, and up to 2 (4 in case of couples or families) in my Sessions. During Sacred Space and Community events, I welcome large groups of people because the energy is amplified in these settings while my presence and impact remain.

Next Step

I work magnetically, which means that I offer my services to those who ask. If what I offer resonates for you, please contact me. I trust that you will connect when you feel called to do so, and when time and space are aligned. Thank you!
