Exhale the old and inhale the NEW with The Get Up Movement!

laura_aiisha_email_header_rev1111I’m curious… Are you in your YES or in your NO?! Or somewhere in between?

Aside from being, by far, one of the most POWERFUL years I’ve had yet (not always easy, not always pretty, definitely far from comfortable 70% of the time), woweeeeeWOW… 2014 has been amazing!!

Something that has become crystal clear this year is the difference between standing in my YES or fluctuating between YES & NO, allowing the NO to pull on me stronger than my YES.

Is this making sense?!

Here’s an example… At the top of the year, literally January 1st, I chose to do my first ever 21 day cleanse. I was all prepared, had a cleansing partner and was raring to go. Even though I was consciously choosing this cleanse, I was NOT in my YES about it!! I whined, complained, and felt sorry for myself because I ‘couldn’t’ have things that bring me comfort, that I enjoy etc. It completely impacted the whole experience for me and made it feel more like a drain as opposed to an uplift.

I decided to do the cleanse again on November 1st because I wanted to clean up and clear out before I indulge for the holidays. This time there’s been a DISTINCT difference, though. I’ve actually been in my powerful YES about the cleanse! I’ve found great joy in shopping, cooking and eating delicious healthy meals, while choosing not to have all of those other yummy things that I love, with my ‘health is wealth’ frame of mind as the focus.

To be honest, there were a few difficult days, a few days where I felt like, ‘UGH… I could REALLY use a hearty meal right now, or a piece of cheese, or a cup of coffee.’ However, I decided to redirect that energy, remind myself how powerful and awesome it is to commit to my body, health and just to commit to something that pushes me way outside of my comfort zone. Being in my YES about it literally made all the difference.

What are you navigating or experiencing in your life, that if you chose to be in your powerful YES, it could make all the difference?!

We touch in on this topic in a handful of the transformational interviews coming up in The Get Up Movement :: From Woe is Me to Empowered and Free video summit! We’ve had some awesome interviews so far and Week 2 promises more wisdom, insight, uplift, and inspiration motivation for you!

The Get Up Movement
From Woe is Me to Empowered and Free

At one time in their life, each of the 13 speakers sharing in this Summit hit rock bottom and was unclear on their ‘YES’. They knew that the only way they were going to do what they’re here to do was by getting out of their own way and choosing to love, accept and empower themselves while saying YES to the life and work that was calling them forward.

What will it be like to feel…

  • Energized to get out of bed every day knowing that you matter, because you own your worth and recognize the amazing gift you are in your life and to the world?
  • In Love with yourself, your life, and your relationships feeling more Peace, Connection, and Inclusion with family, friends, your partner, and community?
  • Courageous and Empowered to make the necessary changes in your life in order to be your best self and live your best life?
  • More Freedom and Spaciousness in order to enjoy more quality time to be with loved ones, be out in nature, exercise, or start that business you’ve been dreaming about?
  • Happy and Confident in your choices as you take responsibility for how you’re creating your life and destiny, while Courageously letting go of the people, places and things that no longer serve you?
  • Empowered and Free to be exactly who you are and to live the life you’ve been dreaming of?

This Summit marks the launch of the global Get Up Movement, which was initially conceived a couple years ago when I channeled my influential empowerment song “Get Up” because I was sick of getting in my own way.

I’m now on a mission to help others get out of their own way and create and leave their greatest legacy!

I personally invite you to join us for this incredibly, awesome, transformative journey! I guarantee this Summit is going to Uplift, Connect and Inspire each and every one of us in ways beyond what we can imagine right now!

13 FREE Ways to Ignite Your Inspiration & Get Motivated to Create Your Dream Life Now!

As you probably know, thankfulness is a foundational element in my life and experience. It’s one of the main energies/tools that I use to remind me of life’s abundant blessings and innate goodness. To follow up on my previous blog, I’m thinking about that man.. that heartbreak.. all of the crazy things and the crazy ways that he and I showed up in the face of it all. And I’m also thinking about gratitude. How I was able to move into a place of total forgiveness towards him and myself for the choices we made and the ways we behaved. It took a while to get there; however, when I was able to see this heartbreaking soul-cracking experience from a place of ‘GIVE THANKS’, my entire world and being shifted. I’ve found through the last 8 years, ever since the beginning of my ‘next level healing journey,’ that flipping the script, dispelling the myth and GIVING THANKS for life’s challenges and struggles have given me direct access to more of life’s triumphs, more joy, more energy and living from my power! Now, don’t get me wrong… there are times I get FOOLED and caught up in what I call an … Continue reading

Join us TODAY! The Get Up Movement :: From Woe is Me to Empowered and Free

Bless Up ma famille! I want to share with you a bit about my experience hitting ‘rock bottom.’ When I look back on my life, there are a few specific times that I can think of when I truly hit bottom. And when you hit that place, you know you’re at the bottom because literally, there’s nowhere to go but up. Can you relate?! The last major bottom I hit was at 29 years young. I fell in love with this man who was not ready, willing or able to love me fully. There were several reasons why this didn’t work (and ended in utter disaster); however, what occurred to me in the aftermath was that I had no idea at that time how to love MYSELF. I also realized that I was putting so much of my own ‘stuff’ on this situation, trying to get my needs met through other people who were saying know, but I couldn’t/wouldn’t hear it. It was heartbreaking, it brought me to my knees and broke me to the core.. and then the most incredible things started to happen. I took a STAND for myself and my life. I told myself, ‘Laura Haykel.. you’re … Continue reading

In this interview, I get deep and raw about self-empowerment, my personal journey, and how YOU can play your most powerful role in the world.

Want to create less anxiety and more positivity in your life?

Let me begin by taking a moment to celebrate this year… 2014 has been highly challenging, magical, synchronistic and heart and mind blowing in so many ways. This year Life is requiring me to step up and stretch in ways I’ve never stretched before. It’s been intense, awesomely amazing and a little bit of everything else! Can you relate?!! I’m so thankful that I’ve been filling my bucket with simple tools that I can use in challenging times, which remind me moment to moment to trust and surrender to the Divine Universal Flow. When I remember to use these tools (sometimes I conveniently forget), it’s truly amazing to be able to tap into a source of support, energy, and love that’s always here, and to acknowledge and trust my own divine knowing. I recorded this vlog to share a challenge I’ve been experiencing this summer, which I believe many of you can relate to. I’ve been struggling with ideas, feelings, perceptions, and anxiety around my physical appearance, which has directly affected my own self worth. Check out the video below to hear my story and how I’m moving from anxious to ACTIVATED, worried to ALIGNED and powerless to EMPOWERED! You know I LOVE to hear from … Continue reading

An awesome review of my CD release party from graphic artist Afura Fareed

Oh my goddess! I’m so thankful for the awesome feedback about my CD and my CD Release Party. The latest review comes through from my girl Afura Fareed, the graphic designer who has created such magic with my latest projects! She captures the party’s vibe in such a beautiful way… Read on to get even more of the flavor of this oh-so-MEMORABLE evening! ‘Laura Aiisha’s release party for her debut album “I Am” left little to be desired. It was the first EP launch I’d ever been to, and I’m confident that other guests in the same position would agree that it was everything they’d imagined and then some. The 9th Ward as her choice of venue was perfect. Its old-world-meets-modern-artsy vibe was welcoming and provided a cozy, intimate setting for such a gathering. As the event photographer, I was excited to arrive early and be one of the first guests to receive a free copy of the CD, and to soak up the positive atmosphere on camera before and during the event. Laura has been a good friend and colleague of mine for a while now, but until her album release party, I hadn’t had the pleasure of seeing … Continue reading

From Woe is Me to Empowered & Free!

This is a time of BIG SHIFTS… I know you can feel it! We’re dropping the old stories that keep us limited and coming into the awareness of who we truly be… free, empowered, amazing beings with infinite capabilities! I want to share with you another personal story and a telesummit you can access to make another powerful shift that will help you bring more happiness, possibility, and amazing co-creations into your life! I remember back a few years ago I was hustling hardcore through the Summer to develop new business for my consulting firm, all the while feeling ‘sorry for myself’ that I wasn’t ‘able’ to take a vacation like everyone else seemed to be doing. I was really in the ‘poor me’ story that’s been with me for a majority of my life. Can you relate to feeling like this? Looking at all of the people having fun, traveling, going to the beach and feeling totally left out and sorry for yourself? I definitely can… Then, after some bitching & complaining to just the right people (who of course held me accountable for being in my stuff!), I realized that I actually HAVE A CHOICE! How about that?! … Continue reading

Choosing LOVE over fear!

I want to get real with you about more of my journey in life and to show you how I got where I am today (and how I keep on growing into more empowerment and self-love). I’ve recently participated in some awesome telesummits, sharing my wisdom on how you can become more empowered and create the life you dream of. I want to give you the tools to womanifest your vision and live boldly every day, expressing your truth completely and fearlessly! Believe it or not, I used to live in constant fear about one thing or another. My list of fears was a mile long. When I had my daughter, I began opening up to more Love and more Courage. I realized that even though I felt afraid or fearful of doing/saying/trying something, I could still choose to step up and show up courageously.. and the most incredible things started happening! Check this out: your body vibrates at a certain frequency, and those vibrations can affect you, your life, your health, and the very people you surround yourself with. When you experience LOVE, your body vibrates at the HIGHEST possible frequency on the spectrum and when you experience FEAR, your … Continue reading
