Today we’d like to introduce you to Dr. Sarah Larsen.
Dr. Larsen, please share some of your back story with us.
My family emigrated from Pakistan to the United States when I was 6 years old. My dad had landed a position as an engineer at Procter & Gamble in Cincinnati. Eventually, we moved to New Orleans where my parents got into retail and acquired commercial properties in the French Quarter.
As they built their businesses, they ensured that my siblings and I had the finest education and established successful careers; my sister and I both became doctors, my older brother became a successful real estate investor, and my younger brother received a law degree and MBA. They instilled in us a tremendous work ethic, one that has served us to this day.
You’ve done something pretty innovative with your medical training. Care to share?
After I moved to Los Angeles with my husband, I set up a practice as a medical intuitive and energy healer. Becoming a doctor and working in emergency room type settings for Non-Governmental Organizations in the United States and abroad was profoundly rewarding.
My training as a healer began with my grandmother in the villages of Pakistan as a young girl. She was the village healer and healed with foods, herbs, and subtle energy. Most of my official medical training was in India, Costa Rica and Trinidad and Tobago. This formative time of my education and experience trained me to look beyond just the physical systems. I embodied the eastern philosophy of, “to heal is to become a better person.” I also understood western allopathic science and methods and the need for reproducible results.
In Los Angeles, I began to realize my mission and purpose to combine medicine with holistic healing and life coaching. I believed there were even more substantive ways to help people. My patients might have had a range of physical symptoms, but I wanted to look beyond that, to see the areas in their lives where they felt stuck or unfulfilled
I have worked with countless high-achievers and successful entrepreneurs, helping them bring their lives into balance mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually. My clients were financially successful, but many were sacrificing relationships and health. They had chased money at the expense of their overall well-being. My work involves helping them reset, and giving them the tools they need to live far more enriching lives. I know how emotional setbacks can impact every area of your life, especially your health.
And you’ve learnt that through experience?
When I was 14, my parents married me off to a much older man. I suffered years of physical and mental abuse at his hands. At 19, I was left for dead in an attempted honor killing. I managed to escape the horrors of that life. For years thereafter, I tried to hide from my trauma, throwing myself into the pressures of getting a medical degree and then into a demanding career. I also focused on my passion for creating peace through medicine. But inside I felt deeply empty. I realized that in tandem with my desire to heal others, I needed to heal myself too.
I enrolled in multiple alternative health and coaching programs and aligned myself with renowned healers. The physical scars of those horrifying five years in an abusive marriage might have faded, but I had to deal with the emotional scars before I could really be there for others.
What can someone expect when they schedule a consultation with you?
Fundamentally, your body doesn’t lie. Everything that passes through your subconscious mind impacts what happens in your body, and your life. Through the skills I have acquired over the decades, combined with my medical training, I can tune in to your body’s energy fields and see what is going on. Sometimes vital organs are sluggish. Or a client’s neurochemistry is off, slowing down their thinking and creative process. I can see where in the body old hurts and anger linger, and can help my clients release them.
How can your work serve high-achievers on a daily basis?
Business leaders are required to make decisions that lie beyond just numbers on a page. They need to know how to work harmoniously with others, to cope with the inevitable challenges of the business world, to seamlessly pivot when needed – and, most importantly, to really look after themselves so they can optimally be effective in their day-to-day lives. Let’s clear out old patterns and ways of thinking that no longer serve you, so you can forge ahead in a bold and inspired way.
We’ve been hearing a lot about Miracle Makers Academy. What is it, and how can we get involved?
My husband Greg Larsen and I jointly founded Miracle Makers Academy as a way to make my services available to a wider number of people, all across the globe. For a nominal monthly fee, members worldwide can attend a weekly online MasterClass where I offer guidance as a medical intuitive and life coach. Each class begins with a teaching on the topic of the week and then members receive mini-readings, intuitive coaching, and time for Q & A. All classes, guided meditations, and the foundational Miracle Manifestation Method course are archived in the academy with 24 hour access. Members also have access to a vibrant community of Miracle Makers.
Overall, my objective for Miracle Makers Academy is to provide an invaluable resource of information, tools for self-awareness, and to create a community focused on transformation and service to their local and online communities.
And there’s a radio component too?
Miracle Makers is a weekly show produced with Universal Broadcasting Network out of Hollywood’s famed Sunset Gower Studios. I regularly interview experts in the field of healing, nutrition and wellness. I’m available during the segment to answer questions from callers. You can listen to previous shows on iTunes, iHeartRadio and YouTube.
