Aloha Beloveds!

I just got home from Maui, it is soooooooo beautiful there! That place consistently lit up my heart in a way I’ve rarely experienced. It felt like my heart was radiating out joy for the entirety of my trip, sometimes I could barely contain my enthusiasm!

During my trip, it felt like the land was constantly speaking to me, like I could hear Mama Maui guiding me toward love in a whole new way. For weeks I experienced being fully guided from Spirit with little mind direction or control. It was blissful. It felt like I took myself apart, softened any hard edges, and put myself back together again. I could feel my system upgrading, taking in more light frequency and raising my vibration. Requiring the old to be released in order for the new to come in. She assisted me in completing a lot of old patterns and healing karmic wounds held for lifetimes. It felt good to let go and follow essence. I feel lighter upon returning home.

Maui is known as the heart chakra. When I found this out I squealed in joy. It made So. Much. Sense! My first two weeks in Kauai felt like Spiritual surgery. Kauai feels like an ancient grandmother, full of wisdom and holding. It was as though she went into my operating system and moved things around, took energy out and completely opened me up. Then upon traveling to Maui it felt like healing and recovery time from a younger, joyous energy. Maui’s heart regenerated my field and enlivened my Spirit, assisting me with the transition to this new, higher relational space. Into this new place of deepened love, joy, and psychic awareness.

The land is so rich in the Hawaiian Islands. Everything is so alive. Which made me feel ALIVE! I could literally FEEL all of Mother Nature’s energy. So vibrant, free and flowing. Retreating to a place that has so much diverse plant life and natural blessings has SUCH a tremendous healing effect on the body, mind, and Spirit – Did I mention there are 9 days left to sign up for my Guatemala Magic Yoga + Healing Retreat?? 🙂 Click here and see info below!

For example, when I looked at Haleakala – Maui’s biggest volcano – I felt this sense of such wisdom and sovereignty. When I listened to the crashing waves of the ocean, I felt Father Sea washing away emotional turmoil and angst. When I felt the sun shining down on my skin, I felt the old burning away. When I felt the sand between my toes, I felt the grounding and holding of Mama Cocha – our Great Mother.

I have such gratitude for those lands. They offer so many blessings and teachings – all free of charge – if you get quiet, trust and listen. I rarely listened to music or watched anything. The abundance surrounding me was more then enough to keep my senses engaged. It was such a unique opportunity to go off-grid and completely disengage from everything outside of me. I went internal, focused on nurturing myself from the inside out. Focused on grounding my new light body, clearing blocks to love, connecting to my Higher Self, and healing my heart.

Upon arriving in Maui, I went through a series of days where I would break into tears. I felt like Maui broke open my heart and new light was shining through the cracks. Tears of sweet release in deep reverence for the land and Spirit. Thank you Spirit, for directing me there. Thank you to mySelf, for listening.

While in Kauai I asked why she brought me to the island. She informed me it was to expand my heart within my energy healing work, so I could be of greater service to humanity. Then I was directed to Maui, to continue the heart healing process in the heart chakra of Earth.

What I learned from this trip, is how important it is to get away and take time to connect with one’s Self. How necessary it is to go into the silence and listen to the beating of your Sacred Heart. To ask your internal guidance what it needs. To ask your Self what it wants. How rich nature is in it’s ability to heal, excite and inspire our senses. How Spirit is always guiding us to exactly where we need to be. How taking the time to heal – even from the day to day – is crucial for our Soul’s growth, health and expansion.

Thank you Kauai. Thank you Maui. Thank you to my partner for supporting me in taking such a long voyage – and joining me for a portion of it! Thank you to my community for believing in me. Thank you to my clients for your love and well wishes. Thank you to Spirit for your beauty and abundance.

September Newsletter

Bon Voyage, September 🙂

Hello beauties! I’m currently in the process of getting everything ready for my big trip to the Hawaiian Islands. I leave this Sunday. I can’t remember the last time I felt THIS excited about something!

I love how the universe works, ya know? As soon as I said “yes” to taking this trip, things that have been difficult started to align, the fog began to lift and newfound insight came through, and places where I’ve been feeling “stuck” started to shift. It’s truly amazing to witness what I call, “energy alignment in action.” Where all the forces-that-be finally unite and move together toward the same destination.

When we say “yes” to what we know is right for our deepest selves and most authentic expression, everything just starts to work out, almost effortlessly. We are tapped into the state of “flow” where it literally feels like the universe has our backs, and we may actually feel support and energetic holding from an invisible, intangible, higher power.

Just writing that makes my whole system sream YES!!!!!! Yes to being in the flow! Yes to my highest expression! Yes to universal alignment! Yes to living life as nothing other then mySelf!

What have you been feeling called to do for-ever and haven’t done yet? Could that be what’s keeping you blocked in certain areas of your life? What parts of yourself have you been holding back and not allowing? What if getting support could be exactly what you need to move through some gnarly places that life has thrown upon you?

I’ll be starting up my Energy Healing Program again this fall November 1st for those interested in deep healing and movement in their lives. We will focus on what’s energetically blocking you right now – mentally, emotionally, physically, Spiritually – and create connection, perspective, and healing. Due to the volume of attention each participant receives, there are only a small number of spaces available for this program. Email me @ lisa@lisalola.net if you’d like to be put on the waiting list. Be on the lookout for more information to come in the next month!

If you also have been receiving the call to travel, there are still spaces left for my Yoga & Healing Retreat in Guatemala with Karma Tribe Yoga owner Lauren Leduc. Think lush nature, volcanoes, monkey’s, fruit trees, crystal water, and Mother Earth. Sure to be grounding, restorative and healing. Click here or check out the link below!

Once I return from my trip I’ll begin seeing clients on Oct. 23rd. Contact me via email to lisa@lisalola.net to schedule yours in advance. I’ll be checking my email along the way and will get back to you when I can. Mahalo!

August Newsletter

Hello August, big things are happening!

Right now I’m really present to how much is unfolding in my life. I’m witnessing myself manifest my intentions, and when I look back, I see that I’ve known what was going to happen all along. It wasn’t so easy to see in the moment, but it reaffirms that I can trust myself and that I am always being taken care of.

My biggest, most recent manifestation is participating at an intensive in Kauai I’ve been trying to do for 3 years! (Hallelujah!!) As well as creating an extended vacation to visit Maui while I’m over there. My psyche can’t even comprehend the magnitude of this alignment.

Traveling is something I’ve always wanted to do, but have also been scared of. Fear of the unknown and it pushes my control issue buttons. This year I sensed that beginning to instill travel in my life was going to be an important step to take. That I needed to literally expand my horizons and strengthen my energy field by getting out of my comfort zone, and opening up to the pulsation of life. This trip to Hawaii represents so many things for me:

  • Strength: After going through a lot this year that’s left me feeling like I’m on really shaky ground, this trip is providing a platform to reaffirm my inner strength and continue to build myself. To stand stronger in myself and want I want in life.
  • Action: When life gets turned upside down, it can be hard to keep pushing and going when all you want to do is crumble and eat cake. This trip is assisting me in getting back to taking action in my life. To not be a passerby of circumstances, but to really be the orchestrator of my life.
  • Confidence: That yes I can do this! I’m worthy! That I deserve all the joy, glory and bliss in the world!
  • Trust: The biggest piece of creating this whole trip. Trust in spending so much money and resources on something that currently lives as a dream. Trust that the money will come back 10-fold from giving myself this time to heal, explore, and connect to my deeper Self. Trust that I will be taken care of and I will be okay.

Last night I was reminded by Spirit of the phrase, “sometimes you have to spend money to make money.” When we try to hold onto all of our abundance for fear of losing it and not having enough, it creates a block in the field for money to go out, and come in. The universal law of giving and receiving is thwarted. Instantly I saw how I was creating a fear of scarcity, and how allowing the money to flow out for something that will support my growth and abundance will surely come back to thank me in all of her heightened glory 🙂

This isn’t to say I can go around spending money irresponsibility, but to develop a deeper relationship with the energy of abundance. When I’m in integrity with my finances and using my resources for the highest good, I am in alignment to live my most prosperous life.

If you’re in the realm of creating more travel, growth and discovery into your life, check out my Yoga & Healing Retreat in Guatemala. Link below!

Lastly, a head’s up I will be leaving for my trip starting Sept 24th and will be gone 3-4 weeks. Contact me if you’d like to schedule a session before I leave. Mahalo!

Natural Healing Synchronicity

I’ve had an interesting synchronicity happen lately. Just before I found out that I had an “alarmingly high amount of asbestos in my lungs” from my homeopathic doctor; I received an email from a guy sharing how he was a cancer patient of mesothelioma.net, a leading online resource for cancer patients. He had found my work related to the chakra’s and included a link to an article they published on chakra therapy, hoping I might share the information to anyone who may benefit.

The article is Mesothelioma and Natural Chakra Healing and I encourage you to check out this information as any of us are susceptible to the disease.

I had heard of mesothelioma, but wasn’t sure what it was. I reviewed the article and read that mesothelioma occurs from asbestos poisoning. I meant to message the guy back, but life got busy and a few weeks passed by. I kept thinking of the article and asking Spirit why this guy found me and reached out to me of all people about it’s connection to natural chakra healing. There are tons of resources for chakra/natural energy healing workers.

I continued to wait, feeling like the sign would come eventually, I just wasn’t seeing it yet. Then it came time to meet with my homeopathic doctor to receive my test results.  And there it was, the reason why this man with asbestos poisoning contacted me about the possibilities of chakra healing, because I had high amounts of asbestos in my respiratory track as well.

Before I move on let me be clear, LOTS of people have asbestos in their lungs and don’t even know it, and it NEVER escalates to the stage of mesothelioma. Many continue to live normal healthy lives. I believe mine is nowhere close to the stage of mesothelioma, but it is enough to need to “do something” and I’m taking the directions as prescribed by my DR.

I find this occurrence fascinating on so many levels. The first being, NATURAL ways to treat disease! The article states, “many with mesothelioma have turned to alternative forms of treatment, and with great success. Natural chakra healing is a complementary form of energy therapy that is generally used in combination with other treatments.”

This is the kind of thing I live for and what makes me soooooo passionate about doing my work! To see the tables turning back to the inclusion of natural healing methods. To see options beyond harsh chemical therapies, huge medical risks and high insurance claims. To see ancient healing methods used by our ancestors be a credited conversation.

I do believe that all healing starts and ends, within. Our body is made of energy. Our bodies manifest from intention and energy. The chakra’s are the body’s energy anatomy. When we heal the energy centers, we heal the body. Healing the energy heals the ROOT of dis-ease. “Different types of natural chakra healing can potentially help patients with mesothelioma battle the debilitating illness.”

The second thing I find fascinating about this is the all-knowing, connectedness of the universe hand delivering this information directly to my inbox. When we surrender our resistance and allow, the Spirit of energy flows freely  and links us up with everything exactly like we need.

AHO to dropping into the relative field of acceptance, receiving, and healing.

July Newsletter

Hello Hot July!

Life is so interesting isn’t it? Never know what’s coming our way or how things will be presented to us. We think we’ve completed something and then another layer bubbles to the surface. Being human can be exhausting sometimes!

I found out something very interesting about myself this week, I have alarming amounts of asbestos in my lungs. I’m the healthiest I’ve been in over a decade and yet I somehow managed to inhale high amounts of asbestos at some point in time and it chose to show up now. If you’re not sure what asbestos is, google it, it’s a poisonous fiber used in the construction of buildings from around 1930-1970.

I have no idea where I got it from. People who contract asbestos poisoning may not show symptoms for up to 40 years. Regardless, if left untreated it can result in life-threatening illnesses.

Now, do I share this out of fear and to have you worry about me? No. I’m going to be fine. Besides an extremely itchy rash, somewhat constricted chest and shortness of breath, I’m great. I believe we’ve caught it early and I’m confident through immune boosting activities and food elimination as my DR recommended, I’ll be able to heal this thing.

What’s interesting to me is the emotional component to physical manifestations. My DR shared aliments and constrictions to the chest and respiratory system stems to the emotion of grief. A light bulb immediately went off, I have been processing A LOT of grief in the last 3 months. When I tune into where the grief lives in my body, I can feel my chest constrict and my breath get shallow. This emotion definitely has a physical response.

I also know that I’ve repressed some of the grief, because it became just too much to bear. I needed a break from the grief. Energy never just goes away though, it must be redirected to be released from our system. So if I push the emotion of grief down, it doesn’t make it disappear, it just puts it further down in my energetic body. And IT WILL MAKE AN IMPACT ON MY LIFE. I may start to sabotage my relationships to fight back the grief, I may go numb to not feel it, the grief needs a way out, and if I don’t allow it a healthy mode of transportation, IT WILL ACT OUT.

Am I saying to feel things all the time and constantly work at getting them out for fear of holding them in? No. Use wisdom and compassion to guide your needs. At times we do need a break from the deep sadness, we do need to put the tears down for a while and go laugh and have fun with our friends. However, it’s important to be honest with yourself, and aware of what emotions you may need to come back to at a later time when it feels like you’re stronger and in a better position to work with them.

What physical ailments or dis-ease are you experiencing? What does the emotion behind the dis-ease feel like? We must acknowledge the root for true healing to take place.

Take care of yourselves dear ones, sending all the love from my-itchy-scratchy-self 🙂

June Newsletter

Yay it’s SUMMER! This time of year takes me back to when I was a kid. Running around outside on the farm, riding my bike and jumping on the trampoline, and going swimming at the pool. Anything I could do to get outside and have fun with my friends!

And not much has changed, I still love all those things, and fully believe in the power of getting the body active to move stuck and hurting energy!

Lately I’ve been doing a lot of physical movement, lots of walks and yoga and a little swimming, and it feels dang good. Getting the body active is especially key when challenges arise and life get’s difficult. I’ve had a pretty big life upset recently that has left my head spinning, heart hurting and energy frantic. Feeling like I didn’t have a solid leg to stand on, I had to get serious about taking care of myself.

Getting outside, having the sun shine down upon me, breathing in fresh air and hanging out in the trees helps me find calm, clarity, and grounding. I’ve been asking Spirit daily for strength, self-love and peace; and it comes in waves. I’m learning that no emotion or feeling lasts forever, and that radical self-care and love is the best way to take care of myself in such times of despair.

May we all come to know our deepest needs, find strength in our darkest hours, and give love to ourselves unabashedly.

Aho lovelies ~

May Newsletter

Hello and Happy Last Day of May Beloved’s!

I wanted to share with you a podcast where I was interviewed by my friend Sara who created a podcast called Intuition Today.

Sara describes this podcast as Finding Your True North: Learn how to recognize your intuition and develop it as the tool it was meant to be.

When I found out Sara had started this project, I was immediately excited for her and wanted to share my story since the majority of what connected me to create Lisa Lola Healing Arts was using my intuition.

To hear me talk about how I developed and strengthened my own intuition to help heal myself, create my own passionate business, and facilitate my clients along their own healing journey, listen here: Lisa Lola – Creating Sensory Bookmarks.

Intuition Today is available on iTunes and Soundcloud.

May we all use the divine, all knowing voice that lives in each of us to connect to the innate wisdom within, to create a life we love; full of magic, vibrancy, and prosperity.

AHO!

April Newsletter

It’s April ~ Hooray!

I’ve always liked April even more then I do March. It’s getting even warmer, the landscape grows more lush and green, some spectacular rainstorms with lightning and thunder – all the liveliness in the air!

What’s been going on over here in Lisa Lola’s world? I feel like I’ve been in a holding pattern for the past month after coming out of the Guilt theme that March held. Almost like my body needed time to recover and reorganize itself after moving through so much deep, wrenching Guilt, before it could stabilize and move on to the next thing up in my evolution.

This has left me feeling like I’m waiting around for something. Even while still keeping busy with clients, projects, and upcoming workshops. Not knowing what this “something” is, I can feel it happening beneath the surface of my consciousness. I know I’m not ready to receive it yet, but that I’m in a holding process of preparing for it.

I’m good with that too, not knowing right now. It allows space for me to focus on what I need to be doing, which is holding, pausing……all things that are still actions inside of presence. I presently choose to hold. I presently choose to be inside the pause. Yes, these actions are more passive in being, but active doing-ness or being-ness is not always what our systems call for, and are in fact, a detriment. Making space for the pause allows me to move through the process with grace and ease.

There is an elemental model consisting of 4 phases we work and live inside of throughout our life journey’s. This one operates within a year cycle and separates quarterly. They are Earth, Fire, Water, and Air. Depending on what type of person you are and where you’re at in your evolution, determines what stages you stay in a little longer then others, which ones you may get stuck in, or completely skip altogether.

*The Earth Phase being a time where you may be experiencing “going through the mud,” “chopping wood, carrying water.” All of the down and dirty work that needs to be done. Requires attention to detail. meticulousness, and repetition. You feel like you have little resources to give externally. You’re in the “doing” part of the process that is focused inward.

*The Fire Phase being the time where your creative juices are really flowing and you’re creating things left and right. Your ideas and drive are abundant and you want to go fast. You’re feeling very inspired and it’s hard to relax and slow down. You have more then enough resources to give. You’re in the “doing” part of the process that is focused outward.

*The Water Phase being the time where things are just flowing. You don’t even have to do much work and clients are coming in, things are just working, you’re “in the zone.” Life is full of ease, joy and synchronicity. You have ample resources to share. Balanced amounts of being and doing focused inward and outward.

*The Air Phase being the time where things may or may not slow down outside of you, but you have adjusted to their speed, and you feel more slowed down inside. Almost feels like you’re floating along through life, just existing. This is a time for receiving, relaxation, rejuvination, and celebration. You’re in the being part of the process focused outward or a combination of both.

I feel like I am in the Air phase, which brings some un-comfortability for me. A lot of Earthy, Fiery people find this phase  confusing because they don’t know what to do – which is nothing! It feels uncomfortable because it doesn’t feel familiar. It can feel weird to not know what to do when you hit this phase, especially as a Virgo Sun/Leo Moon person and solo entrepreneur – I should be doing something to move myself and my business forward! What is it?!

I remember when I hit this phase last year and completely passed over it as most people do. It felt so counter-productive to me to not be doing anything that I just pushed through it, with very little to show, (because I was suppose to be relaxing and receiving). And because I wasn’t suppose to create much or “do” much in this phase. This time was meant for me to relax from all of my hard work, celebrate my successes and effort, and allow my body to restore for the next phase.

A few other reasons why this stage can be hard for some: 1) We don’t know how to relax, it feels weird and like we should be doing something. 2) Most humans don’t live in being, we live in doing. We don’t know who to be unless we’re doing. 3) It can feel uncomfortable to celebrate ourselves. It may make us feel egotistical, question our worth, and create judgements of comparison to ourselves and others. But don’t let your lower self fool you, you NEED this stage to heal, create, and prosper!

Much love, awareness and ease to you all as you move through these elemental phases of your life!

March Newsletter

Happy March Everyone!

Historically I have always liked March because the season starts to change. The weather typically starts to get a little warmer, you begin to see nature come to life, and my mood usually shifts for the better. I often begin to feel lighter in body, which makes me feel lighter in mind, and more joyful in Spirit.

Although for the last 4 weeks or so, I have definitely not been on the lighter side of things. Life has been “hard.” I’ve been running into my shadow all over the place (the uncomfortable and sometimes downright terrible parts of yourself that are challenging and triggering) and I’ve struggled to find the light – even though “I know” it’s there.

The light lives in our hearts, in the silver lining of things, the positives, in gratitude for what we do have. However when we’re feeling very low resonating emotions such as Guilt, Shame, and Fear, it can be incredibly difficult to pull ourselves out and reconnect with the light inside of us and all around us.

I have SO MUCH  to be grateful for! I have a BEAUTIFUL life!! However yes, I still do experience feelings like the ones I listed above, and at times – like lately – I have felt them in the ugliest of ways. Last week I came into head-on contact with a core wound within me named Guilt. If you know anything about core wounds, they are the deepest and the most sacred.

Guilt and I have had a relationship since I was a young girl. I can remember at about 4 years old feeling my first experience of Guilt. I didn’t know what it was at the time, but I remember feeling Guilt for the people around me. Guilty if they were hurting, Guilt if someone had done something to them, if things weren’t fair for them, all of this Guilt for other people that I had no part of! What was wrong with me?! Already an empath at 4 years old, most likely born one.

Guilt and I reconnected last week and we’ve been dancing for days. It has been terrible. Lol. And humbly beautiful. Guilt has reminded me of my human-ness, to take better care of mySelf and those around me that I love; to be kind, and clear and gentle with my words, to speak from my heart and speak the truth.

I notice inside of my experience with Guilt that it feels EXTREMELY uncomfortable. Like I want to pull off all my skin and run for the hills. It is extremely hard for me to sit with, which I know is the only thing that will allow it to pass. All of our feelings wish to be felt, are like a child needing our attention and desire to be seen.

I can feel this Guilt I’ve been experiencing runs deep, generational, and has lived within me for a long time, beyond my time in this life. It is something I brought with me, making it a sacred teacher. Sacred wounds are the ones that will teach us the most about ourselves and our lives in this existence. Although there is a lot of fear in addressing them and discomfort in feeling them, they hold the keys to our greatest transformation and liberation.

So I’ve been sitting, and crying, and meditating, and journaling, and getting upset, and pushing away, and coming back, allowing myself to work through the process of healing this Guilt. I can feel that the transformation of this Guilt will open up so much for me. I can feel in the commitment to my freedom, it must be addressed.

Do I know when I’ll be done processing this Guilt? No idea. Could take years. Could take days or 1 more time. Our generational healing is not in the outcome, it exists within the process. So I let myself journey.

Light and love to all of you experiencing hard times and those who are already on the lighter side of things this Spring ~ <3

February Newsletter

Hello and Happy February – Or Not!

Lol. February is one of THOSE months. Ya know, the ones we long to be over and feel like we are just “trudging through.”

Although I have had a hard time with the early months of the year – specifically January and February – for most of my life, (I’m hot weather, sunny, beach-type person) 2017 has probably brought the easiest Jan and Feb I’ve had in a long time. Historically these have been the months where I am struggling the most with depression, hopelessness and fear. And I’ve been hearing similar feelings from clients and friends. However I haven’t been exactly in the same boat this year, not even close really.

This year Jan and Feb have brought about MUCH creation and I’m seeing these months as an opportunity to “go inside” to our Innermost Selves for some house keeping and just Being. There is always a silver lining. If we choose to reside in areas where the winter months can grow long with overcast and cold, we can take the weather as a sign to tend to our inner garden, develop our self care, and drop in to the remembering of who we essentially are.

2017 has been exciting for me thus far. It has been the most tapped into my creative expression in Years. And I do mean YEARS. Creativity has always been something baffling to me once I became a pre-teen. It was something I longed for, however didn’t think I could have since I thought you were only creative if you were a good artist. And no matter how hard I tried, my art projects were okay, but they weren’t phenomenal creations like other kids in class. This continued as I tried and tried through High School and College, not realizing my crazy ability and connection to dance my whole life was my creative expression. Looking back I see that was my outlet now.

Once out of College and more into adulthood, the dancing became less and less, and I never really realized the thing I always felt was missing in my life was, creativity. I never knew being creative was such an important part of being human, and didn’t understand why I felt unfulfilled and stuck a lot without it. I saw that “other people” were creative, but believed that was something God didn’t give me in this life. Fast forward to starting Lisa Lola 1.5 years ago and I realized that THIS was my creativity! That creativity comes in all shapes and sizes, and the healing arts was mine. Yay!

I have had so much fun, connection to my Self and others, and fulfillment from expanding myself through creating my business, creating client relationships and facilitating them on their journeys, and most recently, creating from this fire-y pitta energy I’ve had this year in the form of many workshops!

When it boils down to it, I have learned that if I’m not creating, I’m becoming stagnant and eventually get stuck in my own mud of fear, loathing, and loneliness. As Spirit, Human Beings, we were brought here to create inside of this big, magical world we live in for the connection, healing and expansion of all. Why not get into it together?!

A few tips that helped me get into my creativity:

  • There is no wrong way to be creative!
  • The right way to be creative is your way!
  • You can be creative in any way you like!
  • Creativity comes in MANY forms – perhaps you like or are good at cooking, managing numbers, dancing with a mop, playing the air guitar, writing, communicating – get it?! It can be anything! Not just something “artsy” like painting or drawing, but those are good too!
  • You don’t have to do anything big or change the world, just do something to get the flow going!
  • No judgement!
