A Note From Sarah Maria
Dear Friend,

Love Your Body Love Your LifeWell, it is finally here! Today is the day of the official book launch! The last two and a half years of my life have been dedicated wholly and exclusively to bringing this book to fruition, and here it is! It is not an exaggeration to say that every waking minute, every breath, over these last two a half years has been about this book in some way, shape, or form. It is with absolute gratitude and honor that I release this beautiful book out into the universe.

I know so clearly that I had nothing to do with the writing of this book. Now don’t get me wrong – I didn’t hire a team of ghost writers. I did, in fact, write this book. Or rather, it is much more appropriate to say that my mind-body was used to write this book. I have known from the very beginning that I was simply an instrument. When I was writing this book, I was filled with such a palpable feeling of inspiration that I was able to wake up at 4 am throughout the summer to write. I was filled with an energy that was truly beyond anything I had experienced before. The best word to describe it is inspiration. From the very beginning, when the idea for this book first arrived in my mind, until now with its official release, the universe has delivered signs, support, and guidance to bring it to fruition. Now the time has arrived, and the launch is underway!

It is just like a parent who lovingly releases her child out into the world. You know that the child was never your child. The child was sent to you from beyond, from that unknowable knowing, the realm of ineffable love.

Consider this beautiful poem by Khalil Gibran from The Prophet:


In exactly this same way, I trust completely in the force that has created this book, this arrow, that is now launching with perfection, poise, beauty, and grace out into the world, that it may heal and inspire the souls that it touches.

Realize this truth, YOU are always an instrument. Always. Moments of inspiration, moments of knowing, give you a glimpse into this reality, the reality of being lived instead of living. But in truth you are always being used in this way, being used as an instrument. Whether you realize it or not, whether you feel it or not, whether you are aware of it or not, you are being breathed and lived by the Spirit of Love that is forever creating, again and again, longing only to experience Itself in its majesty and glory.

If you struggle with knowing and experiencing this, realize that you do nothing to stay alive. You are here in this physical world by grace alone. Every cell in your body, every hair on your head, and every beat of your heart, is being orchestrated perfectly and absolutely without the slightest interference on your part. It is easy to see this when you look at the physical world. Trees grow, animals grow, seasons come and go, all happens by itself.

Discover that this is the nature of all reality, not only the natural world. Your body, your life, your very existence is being handled for you. The only thing you have to do, the only thing you can do, is relax and align yourself with this force. Align yourself with this Love. Align yourself to that which is already orchestrating it all. Let go of your illusions and delusions that you are someone doing something. Relax, let go, and allow. Do this and experience the peace, the joy, and the love that is truly beyond your wildest dreams. The love that is independent of circumstance. The very real, very palpable, and absolutely immanent love that is always there, always now, and always available for you to experience, provided only that you are willing and available to let it touch you, guide you, and cherish you in the absolute and unconditional way you were meant to be loved.   

This beautiful book is a conspiracy of the whole universe, for countless people have helped all along the way. I want to specifically thank the people who have been instrumental in getting this launch in order. Thank you Judy O’beirn, Jenn Gibson, and the whole wonderful team at Hasmark Services. They have been handling orchestrating this online campaign, ensuring that everything flows smoothly. This would not be happening without their invaluable support. Thank you!

Thank you also to each and every partner who has offered support. It is because of you that this book will be made available to all who can benefit from it.

A huge thank you to Colin Miller. He built and designed the final version of, and I think you will agree that he did an AMAZING job. Colin – you are incredible! I also want to thank Sandy Frye who developed the original design ideas for the page. She has been with me from the very beginning and her design brilliance has brought immeasurable beauty to this endeavor.

Also, a huge thank you to Kris Clark who is my absolutely beloved web manager. You receive this beautiful weekly e-zine because of Kris. She is behind the scenes working to make sure that everything is designed beautifully and sent to you on schedule.  Kris is a gift to me straight from the Divine. I love her with all of my heart and would not be where I am without her invaluable support. Kris – thank you again and again for your invaluable, incredible, and otherwise indispensable support. 

I also want to send a heartfelt thank you to my beautiful assistant, Ashley Lazuka. Ashley was instrumental in gathering partners for this campaign. She helped so much, in fact, that I think we are breaking some sort of record for the number of online partners for a first-time author. She contacted partners all along the way, asking them if they would be willing to support this launch.

I also have to thank again and again the incredible people at Adams Media who published this book, designed the cover, and have handled getting it to and all other book sellers. Thank you Andrea, Erika, Beth, and everyone else who has brought this book to fruition.

Sarah MariaThank you to my incredible parents and family who have supported me every step of the way. This would never have happened if not for your ongoing, constant, and unwavering support. Thank you!

It is an absolute honor to be able to send you an email every week to help inspire, uplift, and guide your journey through life. Your comments and emails are beautiful to receive. It is an absolute blessing to connect with you through the digital world.
