Drowning in boring? Get ready to Ignite… your love life!

Laura-Ignite-pink

Every day is an opportunity to love and be loved, however there is something that feels extra special about February. Not only is it the shortest month in all the year (and a leap year this year.. how cool!!), but it also means that spring is ever closer to warming our souls and uplifting our senses with the rebirth of everything (at least in the northern hemisphere)!

Can I get a Woo Woo?!!

Recently, I had the pleasure of chatting with two powerhouse execs in Buffalo, NY, who have a podcast for women, by women. Julia and Anne are a frickin’ hoot and I was thrilled to sit down with them for their Valentine’s day episode and get jiggy talking about relational intimacy on the Snyder on Call Podcast!

I’m passionate and curious about the variety of intimate relationships that exist in our world, what makes them wax and wane or last through the ages, and was thrilled to receive an invitation to dive into the topic on how to “reignite” love and intimacy in long-term romantic partnerships with Julia and Anne. What a timely topic in this season of looovveee… 😉

There are lots of giggles, gasps, ooooo’s and ahhhh’s as I share my insights…

You know I like to give it to you straight! This is a great conversation for anyone who is curious about and interested in reigniting or upleveling their intimate connection with their partner, and/or themselves, with exciting tips and tricks for keeping your love life alive.

Are you listening to the song of your Soul? Update on my Digital Pause

I realize I’ve been out of touch for quite a while. I’ve been thinking about my community (YOU!), holding you in my heart, planning to reach out, and….. I’ve been putting it off. Here’s an update from my last blog of 2015….. As you may have read, something really big was beginning to shift within me late summer/early fall 2015. The seed of that shift was planted a year before in the summer of 2014. As last September rolled around I found myself in the midst of a major life transition, with my only child going away to college and the next phase of my life beginning to peak through the soil and reach for the sunshine. My whole world started opening up before me. I felt…. scared, nervous, excited, confugled (it’s a word I made up years ago, sort of a blend of confused and mixed up ;), contemplative and full of anticipation to discover how my life will unfold before me in the days/months/years ahead. In October 2015 I began to dive into the beginning of a rebranding process for ‘Laura Aiisha’ while mapping out another plan that would possibly, potentially be the magic key that would allow … Continue reading

My Break Up With Social Media

For the last few years, I’ve done a 3-week cleanse at this time of year. It gives me pause on all of my normal behaviors as far as food and other indulgences go. It’s a challenge, it’s scary, and wow, I feel like a warrioress when I’ve made it through. This fall I’ve decided to hold off on the physical cleanse and focus on a digital cleanse of sorts. I’m putting a pause on all of my projects and choosing to do a social media detox from now through the end of the year. There’s been quite a lot happening in my world over the last few years that I haven’t shared publicly, and in order to give this choice context, I’m going to give you some insight into my inner world. It all started in the fall of 2013, just as I was about to take my first trip to Bali to meet with a group of Femme entrepreneurs to powwow about our businesses and expand our possibilities in the palm of one of the most sacred beautiful places I’ve visited yet. ‘It’ meaning my shadow. My shadow started to come out of hiding and dance with me. Oddly enough … Continue reading

Focus & Contentment ~ My New Huffington Post Blog!

In 2015, I’m choosing to focus on one thing at a time, let go of what’s no longer energizing me, and be more present in the here and the now.  This means embracing the present moment, and focusing on what is truly important and giving energy to my life! I talk about this in my latest blog for the Huffington Post entitled “Focus, Contentment, and How I’m Choosing to Be Here Now.” Letting go and learning to focus on one thing at a time can be a challenging, life-long journey. Believe me, I know this first hand, and I trust sharing my experiences will empower you to share yours. Do you struggle with focus or contentment?  Has something specific helped you remain present and “in the moment?” I would love to hear your thoughts! Share them in the comments section below. And if you missed them, here are my past Huffington Post blogs where I talk about kicking resistance in the ass and finding the power to keep going in 2014. Give thanks for all of your support and for sharing this amazing journey with me! I look forward to reading and responding to your comments 🙂 Blessings, … Continue reading

My Shut Up Show interview: Getting Up and Out of Your Way

Hey there, my powerful, world-shaking tribe! There is so much going on right now.. I know you can feel it! So many beautiful aspects of life to balance as we continue to grow beyond our comfort zone and into the fullest expression of our contribution in the world. I’m giving thanks for the miracles and magical blessings that are showing up on the daily, reminding me what an empowered creatress I AM! I recently had the great pleasure and honor of being interviewed for my girl Berni Xiong’s radical podcast, The Shut Up Show. Berni and I met at the Misfit Conference this past June, and as she says, are ‘spiritual doppelgangers.’ We have a lot in common around our past history and the way we get out of our own way to make our greatest dreams come true. 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. I invite you to check out the interview HERE: How do you get out of your own way? Your feedback is soo welcome, so leave a comment below to let me know how this interview impacted … Continue reading

Get Up, Get Up Right NOW!

My evolution into becoming an embodied and empowered singer has been exciting, scary at times, thrilling, and enlightening. I trust my story will inspire you to take those steps to make your dreams a full-blown reality. My journey just keeps going, and just keeps getting better. and better!! When I was 30, I began working with my first life coach and regularly sang as I walked into her office for a session. She used to tell me, ‘Laura, I could listen to you sing alllllll day long! Your voice is like buttah!’ Hearing her words and feeling the love that she shared them with gave me courage to begin opening up. Eventually I chose to listen to the small voice within which kept telling me to go to Karaoke to get over my fear of singing in front of others. Within 1 month I was bored with Karaoke and decided that I wanted to start a reggae band. I found two young guys on craigslist with a similar vision and together, over the next 6 months, we built a 10 piece band called Mosaic Foundation! I was the lead singer, co~wrote our songs, managed and booked the band all while … Continue reading

‘All of Me’ is my day 2 song for The Haykel Twins 7 day song challenge!

Here is my song for day 2 of The Haykel Twins 7 day song challenge! Click here to listen to my song ‘All of Me.’ This song came through me today because of a reaction that I had towards my Mom from a triggered place. I noticed that I was feeling ‘bad’ about it and having trouble forgiving myself for reacting the way that I did. I’m always curious about when I or others feel ‘bad’ about something.. it feels so old, it feels abusive and it seems to create a block to self love and forgiveness. I was able to take responsibility for my actions, speak about the part that triggered me the most (which taps into a very old and outdated belief about not being important or cared for by others) and we, as a family, were able to create a space of love around it fairly quickly. Then, as I was recording this song later in the evening, my teenage daughter was trying to sleep and called me towards the end of the recording to ask me to stop singing… guess what happened?! I felt ‘bad’ again.. So I sat with that for a few minutes, reminded myself … Continue reading

6 ways to support yourself through this common human experience

Honestly, I’ve been feeling a little lack luster the last two days, sleepy, a bit uninspired. Do you ever feel that way? Do you ever wonder, ‘What the heck is going on with me? I don’t feel very inspired or energized, my feet are dragging and I just feel like laying out in the sun or sleeping a little longer in my bed!’ And then you take a moment to look at your life and it dawns on you, that you’re in the midst of another one of life’s big transitions. Transition is a part of life for every human being. At one time or another we are transitioning through relationships, in and out of different projects, businesses, work environments, school, moving to a new home, new state, new country, letting go so that we can let in more of what we truly desire. Through the years I’ve noticed that whenever I’m going through a transition, I usually start by wondering, ‘What the heck is going on with me?!’ And then I stop, breathe, take a step back and look at my life and I remember that, ‘Ohhh… I’m in the midst of another transition! That’s what it is.’ I … Continue reading
