SARAH LOUISE ISWELL, mem practitioner
How I Began and Where I’m Headed
Thank you for your interest. What I share is the culmination of knowing, gathered from a life of deep experiences, education, self-inquiry and learnings about what it is to be human. I’ve engaged in all types of relationships and have explored healthy sexuality, the natural world, business, leadership and ministry and the spiritual or energy universe. I hold an anchor deep into the philosophy of Causism and hold the intersectional awareness of the collective and the space where the arts, humanities, sciences and religion and spirituality meet.
Along with an affirmed, diverse, educated, homegrown and integrated interfaith belief in God; whom I know to be the source of life, light, love and justice for all the world. I believe ‘They” hold the promise of a good future when we walk in the way of life that is, everlasting. Coupled, with an intensely held desire and commitment to live more of my life whole and happy, than not. Along with a determination to see change, in my generational family line; as much as I am physically, emotionally, and spiritually able throughout my lifetime.
I am well there and I’m not yet quite at the halfway point of my lifetime. There is a lot of positive change I have experienced and seen. From developmental childhood trauma, traumatic life-changing events and daily adult life lived in ongoing traumatic circumstances and life lived circumvented by cPTSD. I now live life with effortless confidence and inner knowing. I possess an outward focus and a smile on my heart now, as well as on my face. I know I have an infinite capacity for positive change; as does everybody. The resonance of which I share with you and my community.
The essence of my work is to facilitate lasting healing, self-awareness, growth and sustainability in all aspects of your life. I walk with you, helping you identify your core being, who you are and who you are not, and identify the cause of your challenges; so that you can experience true freedom and clarity and have the choice to live a knowing and self-determining life. Only then, will you be able to fully embrace who you are and start living a happier, healthier and sustainable life.
Tribute to Sarah and MEM
I didn’t know healing could be quick, that in one moment the frustration would whoosh out like a champagne cork.
I tossed many nights with neither my pillows nor my mattress, nor my
character or my mood to support me. All was tussle and tumult, so stale and unresolved that exasperation and anger at 2am was the common result. I was suffering, but knew I needed it not, thwarted but knew I need not be. I prayed for a day of gratitude, gumption, and grace, yet the sleepless 2am war raged in my head, splitting, whizzing, and ripping though my knees and elbows as they tossed my body in insomniac hell. I tried to write it out but no matter how much my pen sizzled and dabbed and stabbed, no expression could release the compression of pent-up energy within. Words seemed not helpful, my blocks too twisted and curled inward to bear scrutiny. I could not fathom it, and in the end hoped there was just a lid somewhere to pop, and out would rush the trauma, unfurling and releasing.
Within Sarah I detected a salve of hope. She had been training in the Mace Energy Method and was seeing clients during internship. The insomnia had settled down but was not gone. I did need help and trusted her spiritual sense in the matter of healing. The core work of the MEM is to ‘dis-create’ negative identities, which we create in response to an event in our life, traumatic, agonizing, or unexpected. That identity becomes the first responder to future events of a similar nature. But it is a false call out, the first responder, the negative identity, is the wrong guy, it’s not the real you. It’s that Joker who is wheeled out because he made you laugh while you were overwhelmed. Or it’s the warrior, or liar, or some other identity, and they contradict or fight each other and other people for your attention.
The MEM gets them to leave. When they leave, or are ‘dis-created’, it is like the weirdest thing. So obvious it cannot be explained. You are liberated through some internal movement of feeling or energy or stickiness and then your head is buzzing and you’re happy. It seems chemical, like a hormone change or hormone release. Like you’re drunk, except you’re not. This light feeling pops naturally across the top of your shoulders and I had a sensation almost of flying. Best of all was the sensation of being popped open like a fizzy drink, and suddenly my words and expressions were naturally mine again.
