ABOUT


I’M BETH BARBAGLIA AND THERE’S ONE THING I KNOW FOR SURE
Beth-Barbaglia.jpg

LOVING YOUR SENSITIVE SELF IS THE ONLY WAY TO TRULY HEAL AND BE FREE.

 
IT’S AS SIMPLE AS THAT

AND SINCE IT’S SO SIMPLE, THAT MEANS YOU CAN DO IT TOO!

Yet self-love and soul awakening isn’t ALL rainbows & epsom salt baths – it’s certainly part of it, but I’d walk away fast from anyone who’s promoting that as the whole shebang. Truly loving yourself requires a whole lotta dedication (and discomfort), firm boundaries, and a consistent commitment to trusting your Intuition... no matter what.

 

Too often, sensitive people live in overwhelm, feeling unworthy, ashamed and exhausted by all the deep emotions they feel.

You probably feel disheartened much of the time because:

  • people tell you you’re “too sensitive” (and then that hurts too)

  • you constantly change yourself to please others, but it’s SO draining and confusing

  • no one really gets you, and you ache to feel understood

... all while just trying to show up to your day-to-day life and commitments.

What I see all the time is way too many highly-sensitive people who are consumed with emotions, feeling terrible, spending their money believing they need to “fix” themselves (assuming that they’re “broken” or “crazy”) and they’re running on fumes always helping everyone around them.

Even with all they give, they never feel good enough. Eventually this overwhelm takes its toll, and they feel trapped, burnt out, depressed, anxious, alone, and disconnected from life.

BUT IT DOESN’T HAVE TO BE THIS WAY
 

I have worked with countless HSPs (highly sensitive people), Empaths, and creative spirits just like you who are awakening to the glorious (and maybe a little terrifying) Truth of “I know I’m meant for GREATER”…yet feeling lost in a swirl of emotions and not knowing who to trust for support.

Maybe you have:

  • Spent a lot of time and money on traditional talk therapy

  • Read loads of self-help books and blogs

  • Tried all sorts of quick fixes to feel “normal”

...and maybe you’re really trying with best intentions, and maybe some of this helped! for a time.

 
 
YOU WANNA KNOW WHAT WILL ACTUALLY MAKE A DIFFERENCE?
 
 

APPROACHING YOUR HEALING THE WHOLE WAY.

Think about all those therapy sessions you’ve bought that ultimately left you feeling just okay, still struggling with the same emotions; all the quick fixes that quickly faded. I can almost guarantee that these things only sought to remedy your pain by giving you one “slice”, when what you really need is the whole pie.

 

SO WHAT’S THE WHOLE PIE?
HELD%2BIN%2BTHE%2BHEART_SAGE.jpg

WELL IT tastes a bit like this:

  • Having a clear understanding of how you operate as a sensitive person (and how your emotions can work for you, rather than against you)

  • Finally understanding what your purpose is, and how you can help others in a way that doesn’t compromise YOU

  • Knowing how to consciously communicate and work with energy so you can uphold clear & effective boundaries (and stop over-giving!)

  • Having personalized guidance and infinite support from a community of other sensitive people who get it

  • Knowing yourself intimately and constantly getting stronger through regular immersions in one-of-a-kind exploratory, healing experiences

  • Fine-tuning your Intuition so you ALWAYS feel guided and trusting of your choices (no more uncertainty and fear!)


 

Maybe this all seems impossible to imagine.

Maybe it sounds too “woo woo” for you. Well, I’ll tell you right now, if you’re struggling emotionally and feeling disconnected from life, you’re going to stay that way (and eventually feel even worse) as long as you continue going around the same tree with those quick fixes and holding on to your fears… a.k.a. ordering that same slice of pie.

 

And I am absolutely unwilling to watch you order another round of that. If you’re ready to try something new, something real, maybe something you’ve never tasted before, I’m ready to serve you.


 

Over and over again I have seen that when my clients show up to exploring their WHOLE self in our work together, they often achieve greater healing in just a few weeks (sometimes even a few hours!) than they have in YEARS (no exaggeration – I’ve heard it countless times straight from their beautiful mouths).

Since establishing Held In The Heart in 2014, I’ve worked with hundreds of people coming from all different life experiences and spiritual backgrounds – many highly-sensitive and empathic people – helping them heal, and ultimately free themselves from the binds of their wounds and emotional baggage.

MY CLIENTS HAVE:

  • Released years of guilt, shame, fear, and more… and finally understand where it all came from!

  • Healed painful relationships with partners & family, and now feel confident in their boundaries

  • Freed themselves of the weight of anxiety and depression

  • Learned to tune their Intuition, and now make BIG life choices with ease & trust in themselves

 
MAJOR SHIFTS.
 

Though, they all began with the same choice – committing to dive in to the nitty gritty, and take a chance on themselves to order up something different.

What I am NOT here to do is sell you on the idea that I can heal you (or that actual pie can heal you). If that were the case, that’d make me God (or whatever name you choose for that all-knowing, all-loving, creative force) and I’d also probably be a bazillionaire right about now, and the world’s greatest baker. (Are you sick of this pie metaphor yet?)

What I KNOW to be true is that if you check in right now deep down, you don’t really want to be fixed, you want to be FREE and feel empowered in your own Truth. In reality, you’re probably pretty sick and tired of people telling you what you “should” do, or that they can fix your woes –because in actuality you’d LOVE to just have a little bit of REAL support and understanding about what you’re feeling right now.

You may be feeling by now that my healer style is much more “real talk, hugs, and nature hikes”, versus “exclusive ‘spiritual-types’ only” — and I know what you’re really yearning for is to be understood and to not feel like such an emotional hot mess — to be free and at peace and actually enjoying your life.

 

SO WHY DO I CARE SO FREAKING MUCH ABOUT HELPING YOU?

I KNOW HOW PAINFUL IT CAN BE TO FEEL SO DEEPLY.
 

I lived in a prison of feelings for most of my life. I always felt “different” from everyone, and for many years I believed something was wrong with me because I FEEL so much (and believe me, I certainly would’ve never been so outspoken about it in the past!).

When you start to awaken, there are so many questions about what to do and how to heal, and the supposed answers seem equally as vast and complicated. I’m here to support and teach you how SIMPLE it can be when you stop listening to the noise and start listening to your Heart.

Let me reiterate though – I have zero gimmicks up my sleeve about self-love and healing being all care-free dancing and “good vibes only”. My mission is to give it to you straight, and show you how to actually heal yourself – because anyone who’s selling you an easy-peasy-one-stop-shop-I-can-fix-you-magic-solution is blowing smoke you know where or not grounded in their humanness. Neither of which you want as a support system.

Loving yourself & living from your Heart, (and having boundaries while still being your sensitive self!) IS possible. You just have to do the work. And I want to help you walk through the muck and give you the tools that will actually empower you — no unrealistic fix-it solutions involved. Just real, simple, potent truths and guidance that will heal your life and literally set you FREE.

SO WHAT’S MY DEAL? HOW DID I END UP HERE?
 

WELL, IN A NUTSHELL . . .

Exploring is in my blood, and I’ve stubbornly listened to my Intuition for as long as I can remember. I’ve made BIG life choices — I’ve moved all over and traveled the world, and taken risks in business and relationships. Because of feelings. Because I choose to be FREE. Because I know and trust and love myself. • Read the more elaborate version here

BUT BEFORE MY AWAKENING:

  • I shape-shifted my way through a particularly traumatic adolescence, absorbing the emotional energy of my entire family, living in constant survival mode, and by my late-twenties had become stuck, anxious, and painfully depressed & disconnected from myself

  • I suffered through multiple toxic relationships, and swallowed my voice to protect myself from being hurt again — unconsciously seeking love & safety

  • For over 10 years I worked as a visual & graphic designer and fashion stylist in Los Angeles, creating window displays for luxury stores, and designed brand identities and high-end wedding & event stationery for SoCal’s elite (sounds fancy, I know — sometimes it was, much of the time it was grueling)

  • Even though I was “successful” professionally, I felt trapped, and limited creatively, and I put up with bosses who immensely undervalued and disrespected me

Having committed at age 20 to never work behind a desk, I was proud I’d always earned a living as a hands-on artist in some form. And I’d done some decent healing via talk therapy too. Still, I never felt fulfilled or free. I was hurting inside, and I knew there was more to life — something greater.

 
 

IF I WANTED THAT FREEDOM I LONGED FOR, I’D HAVE TO EXPLORE MYSELF AND MY FEELINGS WAYYY DEEP DOWN.

Since my soul awakening, I’ve devoted my life entirely to healing myself. I created Held In The Heart to serve others in their own healing, and discovered it is the ideal mixture of all my life experiences and gifts:

  • Relating to and adapting to the needs of people from all walks of life

  • My ability to intuitively feel, guide & communicate Truth in a safe and digestible (and fun!) way

  • Truly understanding the workings of emotional energy and the effects of inherited trauma through my personal experience and years of healing and studying it

  • Teaching people how to hone their sensitivity, and to see it as a blessing rather than a curse

  • Helping others heal through sharing my passion for exploration, creativity, and freedom!

…topped with a big ass scoop of accountability and LOVE because I care about you and I know how powerful your Heart is, and I am committed to helping you love yourself too. (This is the “a la mode” part of the pie.)
