The Power of Living Your Truth with Sarah Ezrin

Sarah Ezrin  |  Brentwood Ambassador

There is a bright light within each of us. A shining diamond made up of pure joy and peace. This is our true nature or most authentic self.  Unfortunately many only see glimpses as their lights get dimmed by stress, fatigue, distraction.

Yet nothing obscures one’s innermost brightness more than being on the wrong path and not living your truth.

So how do you discover your dharma? By listening to the silence between the thoughts. This is where intuition and the heart lie.

I grew up in Los Angeles in an entertainment family, so it seemed only logical to go into show business. I worked in publicity and production and while I was great at my jobs, it was extraordinarily stressful. Every day I felt like an imposter, like I was swimming against the tide.

Luckily, my sister was an avid yoga practitioner and suggested I get into a practice. I’d dabbled since college, but never fully committed. As I got deeper into the practice and thus deeper into myself, the discordancy of what I was doing versus who I was became more pronounced.

Through spiritual practice, we learn to quiet limiting beliefs and fear-based thoughts and tune into the heart.  And my heart was becoming clear that my path was helping others.

Like most of us though, I had become complacent. I made okay money, I had a good job.  Insert excuse, after excuse.

The reality was I was scared. Change is frightening and uncomfortable! Especially if the outcome is unknown.

It was not until my mum got diagnosed as having terminal cancer that I truly understood the importance of seizing every moment and gathered the courage to quit my job and follow my dreams.

The instant I made the decision to pursue teaching yoga, things seemed to fall into place.  When you are on the right path, the universe gives you photo-1-2signs and there is an ease.

Now this is not to say things are easy. There is a difference. If life were simple it would be boring! Obstacles are placed on our paths to test our resolve and make it (and us) much stronger.

The Amazonite Mala helps me stay connected to my truth. It is helpful in alleviating fears and doubts and plugging one into deeper intuition.  The green stone is also the color of the heart chakra.

When living from an authentic and connected place you are immediately successful.  Your innermost light shines like a beacon and you attract opportunities and people that reflect that brightness.

Life is short. Take the leap and spend it doing what you love! The universe will support you.
