Hi, I’m Sarah Southwell, founder of GroWise Be Well, a holistic and inspirational lifestyle company for children of all ages. We are here because of you and for you. GroWise Be Well, empowering you.
[0:00:24.0] Hi, it’s Sarah. I’m back. I have taken a little bit of an absence from the podcast for the past — oh, gosh! I hate to even admit it. I think it’s been longer than a month. It’s because of a very good reason. I have been working with the GroWise Be Well team to finalize the website and guess what. It is going to launch to the world on Thursday, May 20th. We are so excited. We have been working very hard. I just made a comment to one of my teammates this morning, saying, “I feel like we have spent the first five months of 2021 working on our logo and the website.” We agree that that’s very possible, that that’s exactly what’s been happening.
I apologize to everyone who was listening on a regular basis to the podcast. I’m back. I plan on putting this podcast out every Tuesday from now on, the You Day, and so that you can catch up with what’s going on with GroWise Be Well and even get the team back in here for a team podcast. We have dropped those off as well. It’s been a wonderfully fantastic ride for us the past several months. We’ve been adding new team members, we have said goodbye to some team members, which was a very sad parting but very good for them because they’re moving on to wonderful things. It’s just been this wonderful transition. We’ve added so many products and continue to add products every week to our shop, which you haven’t seen or had access to yet, but you will now. I really try and keep all of those products to things that I have personally used in the past, but some of them are new ones that I have discovered and use now. It’s very exciting to be offering such high-intentional, high-frequency products to all of you. And books, we have loads and loads of books now too, which is part of our shop.
Today, I really want to talk to you about the website. It’s such an amazing place and it is certainly turned out to be a wonderful home for GroWise Be Well. All these months, I’ve been talking to you to others about GroWise Be Well and what we’re here for. Which if you need a refresher, is to raise the energetic frequency of humanity. What does that mean? It means get everyone to a place of love and that is the highest frequency. When you are coming from a place of love, you can lovingly defend your boundaries. Coming from love all the time does not mean that you’re a rug, and people walk over you and you let people take advantage of you. It’s not what it means at all, actually. That’s not love. That’s certainly not self-love. It’s really a wonderful, it’s a powerful place to be in, is this place of love. Because you love yourself enough to stand up for what you believe in and those that you love and you love others enough to allow them to be who they are as long as it doesn’t harm you and those that you love. It’s lovingly defending boundaries and it’s something I practice and write down to remind myself of multiple times a day.
That’s what GroWise Be Well is here for, because that’s where I have come to on my journey so far and it’s something I wanted to share with everyone. People would ask me, how I recovered from mild agoraphobia and self-diagnosed panic disorder? This is how I did it. It took years. I’m not saying that love is like — I mean, you just flip a switch. I mean, you can any moment, any second, it’s possible. But most people need some tools to help them along their path to a place of love and maintaining that frequency on a regular basis. That’s kind of the thing. It’s not about just turning it on, and then turning it off. Turning it on and turning it off, like light switch. It’s not like that. It can be at first, but what we’re really striving to do is leave that light on all the time, is to come from love all the time, and love for ourselves, love for others.
That’s what GroWise Be Well is here for. We have a wonderful information on our website, and we have these books and products and GroWise Be Well makes. Our own products for children and adults that we can’t find in the market and we feel would really benefit us. Actually, I have to be honest with you, I designed all of those products. Not the actual like laying out the pages. I don’t really know how to do that. I can sketch this really ugly sketches in my book when these things come to me, and that I bring them into my team and I say, “Okay. This is what I see. This is what I’d like to make, and we work on it together, and then we perfect it and we get it off to a design company or design firm. They help us put it together and get it out to you all. You’re going to find some of those products on our website.
We actually been spending so much time on our website, and our logo, and building the shop and making a transition between team members that we don’t have a lot of our other products that are in production ready to go yet. They will be in the Fall though. Believe me, I will give you a shout out and let you know when they’re there, so that you can check them out.
Today, again, I wanted to say that what I want to do is I want to walk you through the website a little bit, because I don’t want this website to be daunting. I don’t want this to be overwhelming. This is one of these wonderful respites, a place where you come back to again and again. And every time you do, you find a new gem. There’s always something new there for you to discover and so take your time on this site. Maybe come back every day and read a different modality. That alone will take you 13 days. We represent 13 different modalities, because when I was healing myself. and then my family, and friends — not healing them. I’m so sorry. I misspeak. You don’t know me well enough to know that when I say that, I don’t have a huge ego and I know that I’m not healing them. I’m literally just pulling in the energy and directing it towards them, so that they can grasp onto it and heal themselves.
Myself though, when I healed myself, I was channeling down into myself. I did actually heal myself. But the others, they heal themselves, but it was me being helpful, or a conduit, or just being there for them and directing energy towards them. I used many, many different modalities. What I mean by modality, modality is something that you use and it can be represented by lots of different topics. For instance, one of the modalities is education, and one of the modalities is herbal arts, and one of the modalities is mysticism. You’re kind of hopefully getting the idea that they are really categories, they’re metaphysical and holistic categories. But they’re not just a category, because they don’t just sit idle on the shelf.
A modality is something you actually use, so that’s why I really loved that word and I haven’t deviated from it. No matter how many times a marketing firm or design firm has said, “Hmm. I don’t think people are going to know what a modality is mentality as and I don’t know what a modality is and I don’t know what a modality is, so you should probably use a different word.” I say, “No. No, I don’t want to use a different word.” I want to do something new, something other people haven’t done, and because this is new, the idea that GroWise Be well does not represent just yoga. We don’t represent just essential oils. We represent it all and we don’t claim to be experts on all of it. Actually, we’re very open about the fact that we’re not.
What we’re going to be looking for now at the website is going to launch is that we’re going to be looking to collaborate with people who are amazing in those individual areas and have them help us bring a voice, have them help us bring helpful tools to you. And of course, I keep reading, but it will take me an entire lifetime, probably plus another one to learn it all, right? That’s not really the main point of GroWise Be Well. We’re not saying, we need to learn it all. You would spend your entire life just learning and not actually doing and not using what feels really good to you.
GroWise Be Well wants you to peruse the modalities. I want you to just go through the website and I want you to check it out. First and foremost, I want you to do that meditation at the very top. It’s a little homemade because we pieced together this audio file with this video file that I found. They weren’t videoed together. I love it though. I mean, to me, it works and it’s beautiful. If you don’t want to listen to the birds in the background while the woman’s hand is in the water, that’s okay. I mean, turn it off, mute it and just do your own thing, or set your own timer. At least maybe it’s a reminder to just take that moment and just breathe and ground before you go through the site. Because I really want you to be connected to yourself while you’re doing this.
Today, I want to go through the website. I’ve said that several times. So you’re going to go, you’re going to start with the meditation. Then you’re going to scroll down. If you don’t have time for meditation that day, I get it. Just make sure that you do meditate some time in your day. Then scroll down and you’re going to see, the very first thing you’re going to see is this banner saying that we believe in you, and we’re here to empower you and this is what we do, and there’s going to be a little blurb about GroWise Be Well. We left that right at the top, because I said, I wouldn’t want to take advice from a company if I didn’t know whether the company had integrity. or was honest. or felt good to me. So we wanted to introduce ourselves first. We’re new. Maybe in a couple of years, you guys will know us well enough and we can put that down at the bottom. But for now, we want you to get to know us.
Then you’re going to scroll down and you’re going to be encouraged to follow some steps and getting going, because we are here to empower you. We want you to actually take these steps to find peace in your life. Whatever you’re going through, whatever drove you to the site. Maybe you’re not going through anything and you just want to do some shopping, which is fine too. Buy whatever you may have heard or listened to, that intuition, that voice that drove you to go to the website, we want you to have some very clear steps in what do I do next? I’m here now, and you got all this information and I need to know where to go.
The first thing we want you to do is create an account. That allows you to have this toolbox. Then we explain what the toolbox is. All of the articles that we write, all of the glossary kind of dictionary, terms and definitions, all of the podcasts, all of the products. they’re all tools that I would like for you to put in your toolbox. I’m going to do another podcast on tools and toolboxes, because I think that’s super important and it’s more than I want to go over right here. But that’s what it is. That’s what your toolbox is. You’re going to want to bookmark podcasts, articles, glossary terms that you resonate with, that feel good to you, that you want to remember, you want to go back to. You start filling your toolbox.
Then you go to the shop area and you look for something that might help you sleep better at night. And you can like that with a little heart and that saves that to your favorites, and you could purchase it and then you physically have the tool in your hands. All of these are tools. The whole site is a tool if you would use it like that. It’s there for you to discover your best self and for you to feel empowered and clear at it.
The second thing we want you to do is sign up for the newsletter. It’s not the same thing as signing up for an account. It is secondary. It is something you have to do beyond signing up for an account. But this newsletter is super important, because the newsletter is going to have all the up-to-date information. It’s going to have new things we’ve learned. It’s going to have specials. As soon as we get our masters of modalities flowing in, we’re going to be announcing them and introducing them in the newsletter. This is going to be your way of staying really up to date with what we’re learning and who we’re connecting with, so you can have more tools.
Step three is explore the modalities. There’s a link to the modality main page, and then that kind of explains modalities a little bit. Then it lists all the modalities with beautiful icons and you can click on each one and it takes you to that modality page. I encourage you to go through that when you can as time allows. And frankly, I want you to go to the first one that your intuition drives you to go to. You don’t need to go in alphabetical order. Start with what your guides are already starting to steer you towards. Listen to that.
Step four, you’re going to just choose that modality to dive into. I mean, if your guides unbeknownst to you are kind of saying, “You might be really interested in Ayurveda or you might be really interested in divination.” Then listen to that. As weird as you may think it is, as little as you may know about that, you may not have any understanding or know why you were driven to go click on that button. Follow that though. That’s the voice. that’s the intuition that we’re wanting you to tap into, and to listen to and to rely on. Dive into that modality, check it out. Then check out some books in the shop and see if we have a book that might help you learn more about that. Or go search the web and find an online course that you could dive into and get certified in if it really sparks you up.
Then step five would be adding those tools to your toolbox by clicking that heart as I mentioned, which is saying, “Okay. I love this” or clicking on that bookmark. Step six is listen to your intuition. I’ve been guiding you through these steps already, telling you I want you listen to your intuition from the very beginning before step one. That means just listening to that little ping, that little voice being guided just a little bit and then paying attention to where that leads you.
The last option there is in our list of steps is, if you want to make an appointment to talk to me personally. I am opening myself up to that. I am making myself available to all of you if you would like to spend some time talking to me about what’s going on with you. Then I might be able to help you see what your intuition is guiding you to, and then you take it from there. There is a button there that says, you can talk to me, talk with Sarah. I do charge for that because I want to give you my best and so therefore, I want to plan and schedule out my day and make time for you so that I’m super present with you. I want to make sure that I’ve got that focus for you to do that. So it would take you to a schedule and you’d schedule in a time if that’s something you’re interested in.
I am a firm believer and that I don’t know what’s best for you. I can guide you through some things that I have tried in the past. I could try and tap into your energy field and help you kind of tune into your own energy and your own guides. But beyond that, it’s really you. It’s all you and that’s what GroWise Be Well is here for, is to reinforce and to shout, and to get fierce about the fact that it is you. You are the magic, you are the love, you are divine, you are the light, and you are the beauty, you are the higher consciousness. You already are. Life sometimes gets us all tangled up in our own selves, and our own circumstances and we just can’t see clearly. But we are already, we just need to remember.
Love and peace to all of you. Please check out the website. It launches May 20th. From there, then of course, we’ll be doing updates to it, so definitely check back in all the time and just take your time with it. Because we’re going to be here for you for a long time and we want to be the greatest benefit that we can because we love all of you. So love yourself and try and remind yourself to resonate with love in all circumstances. All right, everybody. Take care of each other and take care of yourselves. Have a great day.
Thanks for joining me again. Have a fantastic week and don’t forget to check out www.gwbw.com. Check out our website and take a look around. We hope you enjoy it.
