Sharon Ballantine is a Life & Parenting Coach and founder of SharonBallantine.com
Sharon lives in the green lush Pacific Northwest, surrounded by mountains and waterways. Sharon’s early childhood transplanted her from the West Coast to the far away land of Chile, where her father was starting a fishing company. Her early years were spent learning Spanish and living in a culture she would come to adore. To this day, Sharon travels there often, taking friends and family to share in a country that has so much to offer.
Finding her passion in coaching evolved from years of not understanding her emotional wellbeing, and for a long time Sharon felt she was the victim of her emotions. She believed that reacting to others was something she had no control over, and this rarely left her feeling good. Since that time, her life experience and many years of spiritual studies have shown her that she does have a choice in how she reacts to life and what she in turn manifests.
After her immediate family died while she was in her twenties, Sharon set out on a spiritual quest to find answers about how the Universe works, and her place in it. Since then, she has studied the spiritual teachings of many masters, as well as the laws of our Universe, primarily the Universal Law of Attraction.
Sharon has learned that we create our own reality, that we are in control of our experience, and that our emotions are our indicator of alignment. She has come to know how to use her emotions to make happier choices, which lead to happier experiences. Positive, passionate living is what propels her forward and sharing this with others is among her greatest joys. One of Sharon’s passions in life is coaching, teaching others what she knows and what she lives. She believes we are all here to create the life we imagine, and she assists others in being true to themselves, following their inner calling, and dispelling limiting beliefs that may stand in their way.
Sharon has always felt that one of her missions in life was to be the best parent she could possibly be. She has successfully raised three children and her greatest joy is being with them. She has recently completed her first book, “The Art of Blissful Parenting” in which she guides parents on the practical and spiritual aspects of raising happy, self-reliant kids. Her core message is that by following our own Internal Guidance System and teaching our children to follow theirs, parents and children can lead more joyful lives, have a more easeful relationship and truly empower our kids to make their best choices.
Other passions that propel her forward are traveling the world and experiencing other cultures, studying nutrition, and reading and writing non-fiction. Sharon studied Marketing at the University of Washington until life took her in a different direction. In 2007 she became a certified Law of Attraction Life Coach at the Quantum Success Coaching Academy. In 2011 she graduated from The Four Winds Society Light Body School of Energy Medicine.
Some of Sharon’s work experience includes being Founder of Ballantine Parenting Institute, her online course for parents. Being host of The Sharon Ballantine TV Show for Conscious Evolution Media, Writing her own column “Parenting on Purpose” for Beliefnet.com.
