I haven’t written in a while, and while journaling this morning, I had this message come to me seamlessly. It flowed effortlessly – and almost thoughtlessly. It felt more like it came from the knowing of my essence. I share it with my soul in tact, as an expression of what simply, is.
Being in love with me
Being me is the way to be
Back and forth, round and round
I go, around the wheel of being me
Some days it’s hard, other times not so much
But nothing really changes as I’m still me
In whatever way I be
The truth is I’m still me
Sad, strong, happy, mad
Still me as I be
Not something else
Not something fabricated and unreal
My emotions may be expressive
My attitude may sway
Over the changes that be
But I still stay me
Underneath all the self punishment, hatred, and shame
I am still the best I can be
Deep down I’m still looking for self love
Deep down I long for peace
Around this merry-go-round that is me
I am me
And how lucky is that to be
Me, a person unlike anyone else
Oh what a joy it is, to be nothing but me
My desire in sharing this message, is to reach those who resonate with the merry-go-round of emotions associated with “finding the Self” in each of us. For those deeply entrenched in the journey of accessing Self Love and Being. Being as one in their authentic expression of Self. Loving one Self without limitations, barriers or judgements. The felt sense of Being as one is, is so simple, yet so convoluted in today’s world. How do we break through our ancestral heritage, karmic lives, hurt feelings, societal pressures, advertising messages, environmental influences, peers and familial obligations to access the True Being that we were brought into this life to be?
The way I have found is to get back to the basics. Thinking from Self, listening from Self, speaking from my own heart and not that of someone else. How do you know if you’re thinking / speaking / listening from Self? Drop into the felt sense of your body and see how something you think “feels”. How something you hear “feels”. How something you say “feels”. Does it feel like you? Or does it feel like someone or something else? Something true or made up? Does it feel Heavy? – Full of criticism, indecision, or should doing. – Or does it feel Light? – Free flowing, full of ease, joy and love.
People often ask me how I came to creating my own business. How did I shift from a traditional 9-5 that I no longer enjoyed or fit me, to being my own boss, making my own hours, and being a direct extension of the loving me?
I got back to Being Me. I discovered that the unique energetic essence of me is unlike any other. That my specific vibration is meant for something Great. And that something great, can be any possibility in the limitless universe that I desire. Anything that resonates for me, that lights up my soul and sings my song. And that creating anything from this space – the Being of my frequency – has no option but to be perfect. To be great. To make a difference and be impactful. Perhaps only to me, a select few, or the whole world. Really doesn’t matter, just so long as I’m a living full expression of Me.
I have been learning that, if I am Being Me, the universe expands, opportunities arise, possibilities are limitless, and life flows with an abundance of ease, joy and glory. All because I am Being Me.
So here’s to you Being You. And me Being Me.
If you’d like to chat more about accessing the Being of your Self and Self Love, send me a message in the Let’s Talk form below, I’d love to hear from you and learn about the beautiful, unique essence that is You.
Love and light beloveds ~~~~ AHO!
I recently had this conversation via text with a friend of mine who is a fellow healer. Odd right? People think as healer’s we have “being healthy” figured out across all realms – physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. But we don’t. We’re figuring it out, going through the motions, on our own journey just like everyone else.
My friend / fellow healer will remain anonymous, but here is an excerpt from one of my texts in our dialogue.
“I haven’t accepted that I can’t just eat a little bit of sugar. A little usually turns into more, and then more the next day, and the next day, and the next day, and then more quantities each time! UGG! What’s it going to take for me to commit to a healthy lifestyle for myself? Because I know it’s my access to less anxiety, less being in my head, more peace within myself, more time for rest, play, intimacy and creation. Why the hell am I still blocked to committing to this for myself?!”
Because “just committing” to not eating sugar doesn’t work for me. I’ve tried that. Numerous times, in numerous ways, and the reality is, it just hasn’t stuck. Perhaps I’m not ready to give it up. Perhaps my mental or emotional body still needs it for some reason I am not conscious of yet. Even though I wake up in the morning ready to be done with it, a lot of times by end of day I’m wondering about it, if I’m going to eat it, and if so, what version. This is definitely a current blind spot, one I’ve been looking into and “working on” for a long time, and it has gotten better, but sugar does still hold a charge for me. Just like alcohol does for some people, or cigarettes, or cannabis, or shopping, or sex, or whatever form one’s attachment may come in.
What I’m discovering is that this attachment is covering up something else. It’s distracting me from feeling something, because the sensory overload I get from sugar often numbs out whatever emotions or things are at the front of my experience I don’t want to deal with. And feeling whatever is there scares me, even though I don’t know what it is. So fear of the unknown. The “thing” of what it is, may not even be anything that scary. I’m inclined to think it’s just the process to finding out what it is that scares me the most.
Am I ready to give up sugar? I think the more accurate question is, am I ready to acknowledge my emotions and give them a front row seat in my life?
I want to yell YES! But I also want to be realistic.
I am ready to begin intentionally making space for my emotions as they arise. And that is it for now, I didn’t learn to walk in a day, so I acknowledge that’s all I can commit too, for now.
Last Saturday I had the opportunity to carry out a vision I’ve had since starting Lisa Lola Healing Arts last year, and that was to lead a workshop. It was “Introduction to the Chakras.” This class provided information on the basics of the chakra energy anatomy, it’s physical, psychological, and physiological association, along with some chakra Q&A to help participants get to know their own chakras, finishing with a chakra balancing meditation.
The day couldn’t have gone better. I was prepared, feeling extremely enthusiastic and confident, even my horoscope told me this was a day to put myself out their and share my vision with the world. I was excited and ready!
What I experienced during and after the workshop has been nothing short of extraordinary. I experienced a state of flow throughout the 3 hour class, a very strong confidence and knowing within myself that was extremely reassuring, and have received numerous forms of complimentary and positive feedback from participants, along with booking new clients. SUCCESS!
The class flowed extremely well. Participants were engaged and asked many questions. I shared of my own vulnerable life experiences, challenges and downright struggles, creating a safe container for participants to open up themselves. What I continue to find is, sharing our own story is extremely important. Showing our own vulnerability humanizes the leader, makes them relatable to the viewers, and provides examples participants can identify with.
I left the workshop feeling extremely fulfilled, impactful and purposeful in my work, connected to others, and inspired to do more, be more of myself, share more of myself, and create more of my work!
That being said, due to the extended interest in the class, I will be holding another Introduction to the Chakras workshop, along with some other exciting events and classes to come! Stay tuned to my blog, newsletter, and Facebook Page for details!
Love & Light,
I am so happy and proud to announce the first workshop I will be leading through Lisa Lola Healing Arts, Introduction to the Chakras!
This workshop is an introductory class that will focus on the chakra basics. We will cover each chakras original name, color, bija mantra sound, elements and key traits. Each participant will work through a series of questions related to each chakra to help unveil any personal energetic imbalances. This provides an opening to go deeper into understanding the self and one’s own healing needs. Participants will then learn how to identify and open their own chakras, creating a personal tool for one to begin working on themselves and healing their energy anatomy. Lastly, participants will receive a chakra balancing meditation to help them embody all that was learned and to connect more deeply with themselves, mind, body and Spirit.
I knew when I started Lisa Lola Healing Arts that I eventually wanted to create workshops on energy healing. I could see from the beginning that there was so much to share, and also so much to be learned and gained from holding space and facilitating group energy work. When we make it a point to create time in our lives to go inside ourselves and see what’s there, we create a deeper connection with ourselves. When done in groups, we not only establish insights within ourselves, but we create a network of connected energy that holds us and supports one another’s growth.
This Introduction to the Chakras Workshop is a wonderful class for beginners or anyone wanting to learn, grow or deepen their understanding of their energetic field, connect more deeply with their own energy, understand how energy plays a role when engaging with others, and experience a healing chakra balancing meditation.
Workshop is on Saturday, August 27th, 2016 from 12:30-3:30pm at Karma Tribe Yoga: 3545 Broadway Blvd, Kansas City, MO 64111. KTY is a donation based studio, suggested class donation is $25-30/person.
Wear and bring anything needed to sit comfortably on the floor. Mats and blankets are available however limited. Also bring a notebook and pen.

I am so very happy, proud, and full of gratitude to finally be sharing this large part of me, essentially all of me, with you. I started seeing clients part time in August 2015, and felt the call right away to soon leave my 9-5 job as a producer for commercial advertising to pursue my business full time. I took the plunge mid October 2015 and have been building a client base since.
As you can tell, my business is not just my business, it is me. Launching this business required that I take everything I thought I knew about myself and turn it on it’s head. It took a full, unified effort from every single part and aspect of myself – my heart, soul, spirit, body, mind, all of my personality traits, my quirks and qualms, my cognitive processes and patterns, mental structures and thought patterns. I had to tear down my whole identity so I could rebuild an identity that works for the greater whole. I’ve had to revaluate relationships, the roles I play in them, and what I can offer. Building this business had me question my beliefs, God, Spirit, humans, animals, religion, right and wrong, good and bad, and if I had any business starting a business. I’ve had to face the deepest depths of myself, visiting all those dark, fearful places none of us want to go, riding a roller coaster of emotions that none of us want to feel. I’ve had to evaluate my ability, my capacity, my strength, my light, my connection – my very being.
And I am so glad enduring all of that got me to a place where I can be serving others as who I am. It is my passion to meet people on their path, however they show up, and assist them along their journey energetically, spiritually, mentally, emotionally, and physically. I have experienced it first hand and truly believe that as we help others heal, we help heal ourselves and the world.
We cannot do it alone. I am open and here, ready to assist you on your journey.
Love and light,
The largest and warmest thank you to my very good friends, Jordan Walker of Gusto Website Design for a beyond beautiful website and graphic branding; and to Samantha Levi Photography for her extraordinary talent behind the camera, capturing the look of the photos even better then I could have imagined. I have so much gratitude and love for you both. Thank you for contributing to my dream.
