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

How is what I'm longing for an indication of what I've already got?

Life is giving me many opportunities to ‘practice what I preach’ so to say, by showing up in the face of adversity, challenges and discomfort in new ways. One of the things that’s been present for me is the experience of wanting more than I’ve got, wanting what others have or desiring things to be different in order to suit a vision that I’ve had for myself, for my life.  The question I find I’m asking myself is this: Where is the balance between giving thanks for and acknowledging what I’ve got, have accomplished, experienced etc. and the desire to have more or better than what I currently have? This is a powerful question, one that’s come up recently for me with regards to a personal relationship that I’ve been engaging with over the last year.  You see, I’ve always imagined the type of man that I believe I’m ‘meant’ to be with.  He’s flawless, really; successful, good looking, doesn’t need me but so truly desires and apprecialoves me, loves me through and through, he’s patient, wise, empowered, confident, brilliant, loving, thoughtful, worldly, wealthy.. the list goes on and on. What life has presented me with instead, are opportunities to … Continue reading

2012 year in review

Yes, without a doubt.. 2012 has been quite a year.  This year will absolutely be remembered as a year of great transformation and the experience of crossing a significant threshold in my own souls journey and evolution.     This year has been filled with major transformation, expansion of my heart, mind, body and soul, facing and embracing challenges, the highs and lows, discomfort and self doubt ranging from slight to severe, increasing my capacity to love myself more fully and wholly especially when my actions or reactions weren’t so lovable, I made the greatest financial investment in my own development of personal and professional skills and capacities in 2012 than ever before, I also simultaneously increased my ability to receive more money and celebrated my highest earning month yet in November, I developed my first business, embraced celebration as a way to acknowledge myself, uplift & uplevel my experience and started showing up in life in brand new ways in all of my relations.   Many times during this last year it felt like I was in a push and pull type of relationship with the energies of 2012.  I’d have an awakening and then fear would rise up … Continue reading

Need to build your spiritual muscles? No gym membership fees required for this workout!

I’ve always wanted the life of my dreams to come quickly…when I see something that I like and desire to have it, I want it NOW dammit!!  This is how I’ve shown up in much of my life.  Patience has been one of those muscles I’ve had to learn to strengthen and develop through the years.  And let me tell ya…it hasn’t always been easy.  However, life presents countless opportunities to flex and tone this muscle and this is exactly what I want to share with you today. Building spiritual muscles is very much like building physical muscles.  You’ve got to show up and engage in a practice day after day.  When you first get started and feel your muscles burning you may want to give up and give in.  Then there are times you don’t even want to go to the gym or yoga class or for a run; however, you know how good you’ll feel once you work your body out, burn some calories and strengthen your core.  At times your muscles will burn, you might feel tired and want to give up and sometimes you might even feel like throwing up!  But you keep at it because … Continue reading

Saying 'I do' to myself.. Being in 150% commitment to being my truest self and living a life beyond my wildest dreams!

Today I am writing about commitment… Being in 100% commitment to your life, to yourself, to your mission and purpose, to your word and your dreams.  Commitment can be an intimidating and scary word/concept for folks.  I know that it was and still is for me on certain levels.  I tend to be more of a commitment flopper… I’ll be completely committed to my daily meditation practice; however, when it comes to commitment with an intimate partner (i.e. men), I feel a lot of fear and want to run fast the other way, even though I very much desire this type of partnership in my life.  As freeing and blissful as commitment can feel, it can tend to have the opposite effect initially. Why I chose to write about commitment today is that I recently made a sincere commitment to myself, my legacy and the world by stepping fully…I mean 150% fully committed to birthing forth my greatest potentials into the world and to building the foundation from which the life of my dreams can continue to blossom and flourish at ever greater levels! In order to get here I had to commit to working through, clearing and upleveling a … Continue reading

I'm my Heroine!

Upon reviewing a link on my Facebook page for Joseph Campbell’s The Hero’s Journey: http://vimeo.com/19147130 I was reminded of a profound awakening I had recently.  Here is a little story about it.. I recently started to take Bikam yoga and i’ve got to tell you.. I feel like a real champ every time I make it through the class and come out walking on my own two feet, alive and well! Last Sunday as I lay on the floor 60 minutes into class next to a woman who looked to be about 6 months pregnant. I kept thinking to myself “She is my hero..” and felt called to whisper this to her during the class. I wondered why I kept hearing this in my head and decided that instead of saying anything I would simply hold space for this message.. and then I had an ‘Aha!’ moment as I brought the energy into myself and re~framed this message. The message came loud and clear, “I AM my hero” and it resonated so powerfully as I repeated a few more times “I AM MY Hero!!” The energy I felt in my body as I said this to myself was expansive and … Continue reading

Vacillating between the old and the new..

I am noticing how I have been vacillating between the old and new ways as of late.  January has been a very powerful and at times highly challenging month for me.  I have noticed that there are times when I am anchored into my empowered mature adult self and then there are the times when I am simply giving my power away.. easily, to anything or anyone that comes along.  I have been feeling especially challenged with parenting lately and notice that this old tendency to people please is disempowering my relationship with myself and my daughter.  When I am anchored into people pleasing behavior I realize that I am not listening to or tuning into my own divine guidance.. I am choosing not to listen to my intuition.. and then things go ‘array’.. or at least that is how it seems.  I know that when I choose not to listen.. and when I am coming from a false center (people pleasing in order to feel worthy and of value), I create more challenges in my experience.  I know that within these challenges are tremendous opportunities for growth and transformation..  On the flip side, I am clear that when I … Continue reading
