Hi, I’m Sandra Ruggles. I am living my life purpose in my essence as a Published Author, An Educator, An Intuitive Healer, a Holistic Life and Business Master Results Coach, a Certified Feng Shui Master Consultant and a Chinese Astrologer. I am the guiding light for my clients, and I specialize in shifting people to transform their disempowering thoughts, beliefs, and attitudes so they can live the life of their dreams. I help them transform their home, business and life so they can be in alignment with their soul essence and their dreams. My extensive training has enabled me to combine the most powerful state-of-the-art transformational tools and techniques to help my clients realize unparalleled results.
My path began when I transformed my own life at 21 years old after my husband of three years was killed in a car accident in 1980 leaving me to raise our two babies alone. I moved to Sacramento, California from Rochester, New York in 1981 to go back to school and pursue my college education. In 1990, I graduated from California State University Sacramento with my B.S. Degree in Business Administration with a concentration in Real Estate. During my 9 year college experience, I bought, sold and invested in Real Estate and I coached others in real estate investing. My business education allowed me to use my natural coaching abilities to serve as many people as possible as they transitioned and transformed through their lives. In 1996, after working in real estate sales and appraisals for four years, I decided to be my own boss and I created two companies, ASAP Appraisal Services and SMR Realty Services. I had two very successful businesses but something was missing in my life, and I was searching for my life purpose.
It was my ferocious curiosity that led me to study the Ancient Chinese Art and Science of Feng Shui in 1997 to enhance the real estate I was selling and appraising. In March of 2000, I became a Certified Feng Shui Practitioner, started doing consultations and coaching and speaking professionally on the subject. As a Realtor, Appraiser, Feng Shui Consultant and Wellness Coach, I began to see amazing results for my clients which spurred me to continue my studies in the healing arts. I found that I loved the healing arts and I knew that I was on the right path. Soon after, I developed another ferocious curiosity for health and healing of not just the environment but also of the mind, body and spirit. Also, beginning in the year 2000, I embarked on a 5 year journey and I studied Medical Intuition (Energy Healing) and Hermetic Science at the Ritberger Institute with Carol Ritberger, Ph.D. and Medical Intuitive where I received a Ph.D. in Esoteric Philosophy. During this time, I also studied Acupressure and got a Certification as an Acupressure Practitioner from the Healing Arts Institute. My formal education continued in health and healing and the disciplines of Naturopathy, Kinesiology, Western and Chinese Astrology (Bazi) and a two year study of the Kabbalah.
In 2003, I wanted to learn Classical Feng Shui and I attended a 2 year program of study at the Golden Gate School of Feng Shui and studied with Roger Green and other Master Teachers. This method utilizes the Lo Pan Compass and Chinese Astrology together for maximum results. This is the Traditional method of Feng Shui used in China today. I had found a love and a passion for this work, and I knew that I was on the right path towards living my life purpose. I continued my studies in Chinese Astrology and the discipline of the Four Pillars Chinese Astrology or also known as Bazi.
In 2007, I added Staging to my Feng Shui practice and received credentials as an Accredited Home Staging Professional. As you can see, I am a perpetual student which makes me a great coach and educator. I love to learn new things and then teach and coach my clients in all of my skill sets and knowledge to better their lives to achieve their dreams.
After a three week Shamanic journey in the Andes Mountains of Peru, I found what would literally lead me to formal education as a Certified Master Results Coach. I followed the signs as I was led to the Christopher Howard Leadership and Coaching Academy and earned five International Certifications: Master Practitioner of Neuro Linguistic Programming, Advanced Neurological Repatterning, Master Results Coach, Performance Consultant, and Master in Eriksonian Hypnosis. In addition, I completed studies as a Professional Trainer of NLP and Neurological Reprograming. I studied the specialized field of Medical Hypnosis with Seth-Deborah Roth, a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist and Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist with over 30 years experience in the medical field. In 2007, I studied with Marilyn Gordon at the Center for Hypnotherapy and received my Certification in Past Life Healing.
In 2007, SMR Coaching International was born and it is my life purpose and passion to coach, educate and be your guiding light in your inner and outer transformation to excellence to fulfill your dreams and your life purpose.
In 2010, I studied at the Grief Coach Academy with Aurora Winters after experiencing a series of devastating losses in my life in 2009. I was in so much emotional pain that I decided that I must learn how to release the grief and begin the inner journey in healing my cumulative grief. I wanted to do this holistically without the use of drugs, anti-depressants or traditional therapy. So began the mind, body and spirit healing that would eventually lead to my title as a published author in 2013, writing “Unlocking The Grief Code”. This is grief recovery manual for healing mind, body and spirit healing “soul”utions. This book was in my mind for years and now it is out to the world to help others heal from the emotional pain of grief and loss.
For more than a decade, I have successfully coached and consulted with clients in overcoming self-sabotaging behaviors and guiding them through the process of transition and transformation of their lives both in business and in health and healing. My passion is to coach people to live life to its fullest and create their dreams. It would be my deepest pleasure to assist you in your transformation to abundant health and success in your life!
