Most children want to live lives free from expectations or responsibilities. But some parents like to map out their children's lives for themselves. Sometimes, they seek to live out their unfulfilled dreams vicariously through their children. It's almost impossible to be productive until you've dealt with your pain because we often mirror our pain and trauma to the outer world. In I Wish I'd Known, author Sarah Vie delves into her own life to offer readers helpful insights and tools they can use to heal their past traumas and break the cycle of ancestral patterning. It is important to take baby steps as you embark on the path to healing and learn to love yourself. Meditation is one of the most effective tools a person can use to negate the negative energies around them to live a happy and fulfilling life.

Drawing from her own life experiences, Sarah Vie showcases the harmful chronic patterns people can fall into, losing their self-confidence and ability to love themselves due to possible parental neglect. She provides some accessible ways a person can heal themselves from the inside out to let go of their inner demons and live a stress-free life devoid of anxiety or depression. The most impressive aspect of I Wish I'd Known is that everything discussed within the pages is relatable to people living anywhere in the world. The step-by-step guidelines are also applicable and practically feasible for everyone to use in their daily lives. Overall, an inspirational read that I highly recommend.

I Wish I’d Known: Ten Ways to Break Ancestral Patterns, Free Yourself from the Past, and Manifest Your Dreams by Sarah Vie explores the art of healing spiritually through evaluating familial trauma and thereby breaking ancestral patterns. Sarah explains beautifully that we all have experienced some sort of trauma as a child, and what to do to accept and heal from it. She discusses various methods she found helpful and inspiring, including, but not limited to meditation, reiki sessions, and reparenting. She delves further into the 7 chakras and offers some examples of where we can find ourselves stuck in the hustle and bustle in this day and age. Sarah also offers some meditation advice to follow, starting us on the road to healing.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading I Wish I’d Known by Sarah Vie. Sarah brings up relevant ideas about the trauma we experience as children and how this influences us as adults. Sarah uses several stories and examples from her childhood to illustrate her healing techniques and spiritual journey, and I could resonate with many of these. Her example of being bullied brought back old memories I had tried to suppress, and in doing so I could confront them and heal from them by using her advice. I also appreciated her concise recap of all her healing tools, as it brought the book together as a valuable resource for everyday use. I would highly recommend reading this guide if you want to break away from the past and create a happier you.
