“I've learned that I have to speak up, even if my voice shakes." – Sarah Shahi
We now call her the Queen of Quotes and we are so happy she came to chat with us. Actress Sarah Shahi, mom of 3, has more references and a perfect quote for every situation. As a regular client of the DEN we knew we had to get deep with her on DENtalks. You would never guess by how well read she is (and all the quotes) that it was only 3 years ago, with the death of her father, that she really started honing in on her studies of spirituality. However, when looking back, she shares some crazy stories that illuminate that she really has had a connection with the beyond from a very young age. We also dig in to the mainstream stuff, like how hard it is to balance a family, career and marriage – she has had to learn to let go and trust that through some of the most insane twists and turns, and what the outside world may perceive as fascinating choices, she is in fact, exactly where she needs to be. She shares how her kids are her biggest spiritual teachers and how she is now making stuff happen for herself. She has had a ton of ups and downs but is so relatable, smart, and in the zone of surrendering that she is a helpful guide in making life easier for all of us. Her personal practice is a beautiful quote by Maya Angelou which you can always come back to.
“My mom was such a warrior – she never let me underestimate myself or our family for what it was.” – Sarah Shahi

- Self-Care Hack?
I make sure to clear everyone out of my space every night and get out into nature. I clear people’s energy by creating a bubble out infront of you, putting everyone from the day in that bubble, and then blow up the bubble. This gives the person their energy back.
