Artists Have It Figured Out


“Grandma how do you deal with pain?”

“With your hands, dear. When you do it with your mind, the pain hardens even more.”

“With your hands, grandma?”

“Yes, yes. Our hands are the antennas of our Soul. When you move them by sewing, cooking, painting, touching the earth or sinking them into the earth, they send signals of caring to the deepest part of you and your Soul calms down. This way she doesn’t have to send pain anymore to show it.

“Are hands really that important?”

“Yes my girl. Think of babies: they get to know the world thanks to their touch.

When you look at the hands of older people, they tell more about their lives than any other part of the body.

Everything that is made by hand, so it is said, is made with the heart because it really is like this: hands and heart are connected.

Think of lovers: When their hands touch, they love each other in the most sublime way.”

“My hands grandma… how long since I used them like that!”

“Move them my love, start creating with them and everything in you will move.

The pain will not pass away. But it will be the best masterpiece. And it won’t hurt as much anymore, because you managed to embroider your Essence.”

I do admire artists because, in a way, they’ve figured “IT” out. I find their work an elegant response to the question, “What’s the best way to live your life?”

They aren’t trying to change anything but they are just vibrating the love that is in their heart….and expressing that deeper understanding of life through their work..whether that be paintings, a piece of music, sculpture, a performance, a piece of poetry…etc.

But, there’s a reason we fear creating. I got to encounter it last week. Click on the video to hear my brief story.






So you don’t have to do it.
But I’m so grateful for those who do because I have great books, music and art to enrich my life. 

Is 2022 the year you are going to break through fear and do the THING you have been saying you’re going to do!?  You don’t have to go it alone! You can book a session here. 

With BIG love, Sarah

Fresh reviews from my debut novel, have you read it yet?

5.0 out of 5 stars Didn’t want it to end
Reviewed in the United States on February 23, 2022I have never read a book quite like this. Meera sticks with you, I’m still thinking about her! And I want to know what happens next! She shows a strength, resilience, and honesty as she navigates a serious life challenge. This book is timely and beautifully written.

Another fabulous book by Sarah Bamford Seidelmann! A beautiful work of fiction that is filled with so much truth. I so enjoyed following Meera’s journey and found myself moved to tears by the book’s conclusion. I do hope Meera will be back in another installment – I need more of this magical adventure in spirit!
