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 going to learn how to love yourself fully and wholly so that you NEVER allow something like this to happen to you again!’

And that’s what I did. This was the beginning of what I call my ‘Next Level Healing Journey.’

As I picked up the pieces and started building my life anew, the flood gates opened. I went ALL IN and I’ve never looked back. As time moved forward I could see what a tremendous blessing this situation was in my life. And I set an intention to learn life’s lessons in more graceful, easeful ways.

Fast forward to now and here’s the deal.. 2014 has been a GAME CHANGER for me! I’ve been doing sooo many things that I’ve been putting off, stepping out of my comfort zone, living on my edge pretty consistently, and saying ‘YES,’ over and over, to those Golden Opportunities that have called me to step up and show up in new powerful ways.

From the release of my debut CD ‘I AM,’ to my recent pitch for the Buffalo Startup Weekend, this year has truly been a whirlwind of new adventures, challenges, people and ideas that have stimulated my growth in big ways. Words cannot express my gratitude for the ups and downs, aha moments, deep insights and community (insert YOU here ;)) that I’ve experienced, grown from and been supported by this year!

One of the things I’ve been wanting to do for years is to interview people that I’m inspired by and share those interviews with the world. Launching a virtual summit or podcast has felt daunting and scary to me. Long story short.. I’ve been putting it off BIG TIME!

So guess what? This year I’ve chosen to get out of my own way and do it!! I am sooo excited to present to you my first ever FREE Video Summit:

I don't brag about having this skill anymore..

Over the years I’ve found that there are skills and behaviors that I’ve developed out of a need to do all that I felt needed to be done in order to ‘hold it all together’ or to ‘be a great success.’ These skills and beliefs have assisted me in managing life as a single mom, freelance consultant and now Mompreneur with two businesses and a full life! As I grow on my own evolutionary transformational journey though, I’m realizing that some of these skills, habits and beliefs are no longer serving me in what I truly desire to experience on the day to day.  One ‘skill’ in particular is multitasking. A while back I started to realize how multitasking was taking me away from the present moment, keeping me totally distracted to things that are really important to me, I realized that I wasn’t being the best listener, Mother, Friend etc. I also realized that the need to multitask really came from a deep limiting belief riding on a wave of fear that ‘If I don’t manage all of the hundreds of tasks in my life right now, I’ll never ‘make it’ or ‘get there.’ My first life coach Julie Cramer (she’s … Continue reading

Self Responsibility: no blame-no shame. Who do I need to be to create a new experience?

self responsibility… taking one tiny step, acknowledging one shift, one choice, one balance or imbalance, to co~create an experience, whether enjoyable or deeply uncomfortable.we all, in each moment, have a choice in how we show up, who we ‘be’ and what we say, how we react or how we hold and contain the part of us that wants to react.. from that old place, causing chaos instead of cohesion we all have a choice a choice to choose which path we will step on in any given moment a choice of the thoughts that pass through our minds which create vibrations sent out through the wavelengths which in turn co~create either harmony & peace, discord & dis-ease or something in between i’ve found it difficult in certain situations to be clear as to where my responsibility lay.   Here are some of the questions I ask myself to further overstand how I can take responsibility:at what point did I become triggered?how did I show up?who was I being? what is the reflection here? why am I feeling triggered by this?what part did I play in co~creating a situation that creates separation instead of connection? for so many years it seemed … Continue reading
