Exploring The Three Principles with Sarie Taylor

I am not saying there is anything wrong with reading books or doing courses if you enjoy them and its a hobby that you love. I am going to be talking here about those of us (I have been here - for years I was here!) who are looking for the next big thing to fix ourselves, desperately looking to feel different, love ourselves more, feel less anxious and so on?

This can actually be exhausting and can feed into the idea of us being a failure or worse than everyone else as ‘it doesn’t seem to work for me!’.

Would you believe that we can actually try so hard to fix ourselves that it can feed the negative cycle and we end up feeling worse for it. I remember so often telling myself…

"What is it with me that traditional therapy doesn't work for me like it does others?"

"Why does this keep happening when I am working so hard and want so badly to feel better?"

"Maybe there is something fundamentally wrong with me that I haven’t got to the bottom of?"

"I will just have to accept that life is a struggle in some way or other, but I don’t want to!"

And many more things to this effect.

I was trying too hard too often.

I went above and beyond to better myself including training as a psychotherapist and in other therapeutic disciplines, and yet I still suffered with severe anxiety and overwhelm. Even at the times I felt ‘OK’ I was waiting to not feel ‘OK’ and that was still exhausting. I wasn’t allowing myself to freely live and enjoy my life. 

I was in the vicious cycle of working so hard to better myself that I was missing a huge point, that I was already OK and good enough as it was.

I was taking myself away form my innate wellbeing through my overthinking and self sabotage, but underneath I was as resilient and as ‘enough’ as the day I was born.

As most of you know it was exploring the 3 principles talked about by Syd Banks that changed everything for me and continues to do so and hopefully always will until I leave this life for the next. Find out more about What The Three Principles Are Here in this article

My external circumstances are not always perfect, in fact sometimes they can be awful and yet I know I am OK, and that I will manage regardless.

This was something I never believed for many years, and as a result I was often so scared of losing it or getting too overwhelmed with life.

I could talk about this forever, but my main reason for sharing this is to let you know that if you find yourself relentlessly looking to fix yourself, that I invite you to go within and see who you really are. A phenomenal human being.

Are we overcomplicating mental health? 

The continuous spiral of talking about mental illness and neglecting to discuss mental health that’s within us all! 

Finding herself in a mental hospital for a month aged 22, her worst fears of going crazy had come true! Sarie truly believed she was broken for many years, and now sees that this was in part due to massively over complicating what it meant be a human being. After a long period of exploring and training as a psychotherapist, still burning out every 18 months for another ten years, Sarie finally found the answer, and now shares the surprising simplicity of it all to help others get the same relief. 

Sarie has trained as a transactional analysis psychotherapist, as well as working and training in many other therapeutic disciplines, such as NLP, CBT, DBT and hypnotherapy. Sarie is also an author, celebrity coach and therapist, working with thousands of people a year, of all ages, all over the world. Her main aim is to help them really see the simplicity and beauty behind human nature, getting out of their heads and into their lives, being able to see that the inside out nature of life really is a gift. This removes limitations and stories they may hold about themselves, and as a result finding an ease and contentment in life they often never knew was possible.
