Today we’d like to introduce you to Sarah MacMillan. Thanks for sharing your story with us Sarah.
How did you begin your journey as a healer?
I grew up in Colombia in a spiritual household. My parents were missionaries and moved to Colombia in the 70’s. I grew up traveling with them, watching them share messages of love, learning about God and healing, and constantly receiving prophetic words about my life and my purpose. So, my journey began when I was a little girl, way before I had any formal training, and in my heart my relationship with spirit was always there, constant and alive throughout my teenage years.
I moved to Miami in 1997 to study Music Business and Music Composition. I loved signing and writing and I loved the ocean. I had been coming to Miami every summer for many years and felt it was home.
When I was 20, the love of my life committed suicide, opening me up to the world of self-healing and to the long journey it would take to come back to myself and heal. I began suffering from depression and panic attacks, got on medication, and was in and out of clinics for years. In my pursuit of happiness and sanity in my life, I opened my first business; a successful Day Spa in Belle Meade called Meduhr Day Spa at the age of 23. Going back in time, I remember sitting at the front desk reading books on how to heal myself and how to be happy again. I was desperate, nothing seemed to work, and that’s when I decided to choose a non traditional way of healing, and my search for true belonging started. I went to pretty much every healing modality I was invited to. By age 25, I had read and done so much personal work I started helping friends heal and get past their limiting belief stories. I soon realized that by helping others I started seeing the light in my own life, and slowly started healing my heart and the perceptions I had about myself and my life.
After I got married and had kids, the real life questions started coming up. What belief system were we going to teach our kids? We believe in so many things, so how do we explain that to a child? As I became a mom, I spent many days and nights breathing, continuing to work on myself, and thinking of ways to teach my girls all the principles I had learned to really inspire them to feel and follow their heart. One day, everything I was working on at the moment lost importance. I sold my businesses, enrolled in a Yoga Teacher Training my soul had been dreaming of for years, and immediately found my voice. This new path was filling all the voids in my life. I started teaching 13 yoga classes a week, started a meditation group at my house that grew, which motivated me to get certified as a Meditation Teacher at the Chopra University. Then, I started practicing every healing technique I could get my hands on, and my personal practice started growing. I was not only helping my friends, but was also getting referrals, and realized I had naturally found my purpose.
I began thinking a lot about “love” instead of dogma, and that’s how Be Generation Love was born. Our girls are our inspiration in our own journey of becoming more conscious individuals and parents. We started changing our lifestyle and our language, and started making conscious decisions in every aspect of our everyday life in order to teach our girls by example. As a family, we could be the change we wanted to see in the world. No more excuses, no more “someday”, we started doing everything with the intention to live a healthier, happier, more impactful life.
In 2010, I quit eating red meat, in 2011 milk, in 2012 chicken, and in 2014 I changed my buying habits and gave away anything I hadn’t worn in my closet in the past 12 months. Between 2013 and 2015, I quit sugar and got certified as a yoga teacher and a Primordial Sound Meditation Teacher at the Chopra Center in 2015. That same year I decided to start writing about my personal journey on Instagram to help people connect back to their intuition, to live from a place of love instead of fear, and to live a more conscious and purpose driven life. This turned into what Be Generation Love is today, an online platform that inspires thousands of people to have a more loving and conscious lifestyle. In 2019 I got certified as a Breathwork Teacher and started leading retreats.
Today I serve my community in many ways, mostly offering experiences for people to connect back to their hearts and heal. I do corporate, groups and private sessions worldwide and speak a lot about my own journey and how to live a spiritual life in a modern world.
Has it been a smooth road?
When your work becomes your passion, everything seems easier and fun. Some of the bigger struggles have been maintaining clear energetic boundaries. But it gets better, I grow and learn and always breathe through the process.

My passion is to inspire people to connect to their hearts in order to live more loving, balanced, conscious and purpose driven lives. I have a gift for helping others find and awaken their gifts and talents. I help people connect to their energy and activate clearing and clarity. I believe it’s not really me, but their willingness to open up and see themselves. I am only listening and offering the space for them to heal.
Let’s touch on your thoughts about our city – what do you like the most and least?
I love Miami, I love the ocean, the beauty, the tropical weather, the laid back energy which means I can wear shorts and flip-flops pretty much everywhere!
I love the conscious community that’s evolving and love that we still remain small compared to other cities in the US 🙂 Miami has a beautiful vibe!
