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

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

Crossing the threshold to a new experience

I’ve crossed a threshold at some point over the last few months.  I’m seeing, experiencing and being in life in new ways and notice how my perspective is shifting and expanding.  I’m starting to realize just how far i’ve come over the last 15 years.  And all of the incredible awesomely amazing things i’ve done and experienced.  All of the heartbreaks and challenges i’ve walked through and birthed anew from.  And how every small step i’ve taken, has brought me to this very exciting, renewed, expansive, open to receive, love more of who I truly be in this world place. I came across someone online today who, from what I can tell, is living life to the fullest.  They are young, smart, beautiful, savvy, connected, well traveled and brilliant.  In the past when i’d meet someone like this or come across them online I would feel as though they had something that I didn’t. I chose to compare and that created an illusion of separation.  As if I lacked something within me and didn’t quite measure up to their degree of cool or successful.  Comparing myself to others used to be a huge distraction and energy drain for me (sometimes … Continue reading
