Meet Sarah A. Wessendorf

Today we’d like to introduce you to Sarah A. Wessendorf.

Sarah, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I always knew that I was hard working and determined. I knew that whatever I would do, I would do well. I grew up acting on stage and it was my world, my everything. But my determination got mixed up with my parent’s ideas of life and I started to go down a road that my authentic self was not happy with. I lost track of my gift in life. I remember wanting to get lost in relationships because I was uninterested in the way I was living my life.

Then I got wrongly diagnosed with cancer. That rocked my world. I immediately stopped doing everything I didn’t like. I felt how precious and amazing this life is and that every minute doing what I don’t want to do is a thrown away chance of experiencing this beautiful gift. Immediately I started focusing on my love, acting. I also traveled to many different countries doing acting workshops and playing in international movies. It was also a spiritual wake up for me.

I deeply feel how precious life is. I try to carry that in every experience of mine. Being an actress I love expressing how in the end we are all one. One energy. We can slip into any given role and character because ultimately we are beyond any character trait. It interests me as an actress to show that with enough patience, presence and compassion we can understand any person in front of us. We can see ourselves in them. This is what acting means to me.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
Struggle to me now is a way of perspective. It is funny how people always seem to have something negative to say about acting. Usually about payment or chances. If I hear that I only hear their own fears. Maybe they never allowed themselves to live out a creative life because of those ideas about the world. Struggle doesn’t exist for me anymore. I have instinct and I have a deep understanding that my passion is my higher calling. Now its only about allowing and letting go of what society things a life should look like.

I used to have a “struggle” experience before though, for sure. I was always conflicted between what my instinct told me and what I felt like people expected me to do. But since I had that moment of being completely thrown out of my daily thoughts and motions I realized that you only struggle if you go against your own self.

Once you put yourself first and I mean that in a balanced loving way- you will not experience struggle anymore. Once you and yourself are good. You’re good! There won’t be any inner conflict anymore. I think this is one of the most important things to understand going through life.

So let’s switch gears a bit and go into the Sarah A. Wessendorf story. Tell us more about the business.
I am an actress from Germany. But my approach is very international. I am mostly proud of having lived in so many different countries. Speaking several languages next to my mother tongue and having a complex understanding about what connects us as humans.

This really aids me in playing different characters. This range between love and fear is inside of all of us. We always vary between one or the other. Sometimes we might experience pure moments of being in a love state. But this is inside all of us no matter where we are from in the world. As an actress, it is very impactful and meaningful for me having this knowledge.

Especially now in our world, it is very important for me to spread this message. We should never forget that we are all interconnected and acting can very much so communicate that. It doesn’t matter if you watch an Iranian, an Israeli, a Japanese or a French movie, if a person suffers and transmits a deep sadness you will feel it and it will touch you.

My personal mission for myself is to show how nothing truly differs between us except our experiences. If you would have experienced what I experienced you would understand and you would have compassion. This goes for everyone you meet.

Has luck played a meaningful role in your life and business?
I don’t believe in luck. I believe in us having made the conscious choice to come to this world in this moment. I believe that my path looking back was exactly planned and every experience I make is an experience that I willfully agreed to put there for myself. I have had too many experiences in my life to think that this is the only life we have.

People I met that felt like home, energies I felt that communicating with me, a language I heard for the first time that brought me to tears because it was so known to me. I don’t care if people doubt my belief. I would not describe myself as religious. I don’t think we need to label something that is so much part of my everyday life. It would be for me as if we would doubt gravity and then call those people believing in it “Gravitioners”. I meditate I choose different techniques that help me realize more about how we, the world and all above and beyond function but I don’t like to be labeled.

But luck, luck would mean that something is out of our control. I don’t believe that. I believe we can train or rather untrained, deprogram our mind and our being to be in exact control of our mind, our vibration and with that our life. My life has been really amazing, very complex, very intricate. Luck just won’t cut it for me.
