Happy New Year Lovelies!

What an exciting year 2017 has been already. Only 13 days in and have one workshop on the books and many more scheduled, and in the works. I can feel that this is going to be a year of creation, empowerment, magic, and strengthening my craft. AHO to that!

As I look at 2016 I see that A LOT HAPPENED, like I’m sure many can relate. I found myself in uncharted territory – A LOT – as I continued to create Lisa Lola. Came up against many fears as I took risk, after unknown risk, in building a business from scratch, with only my intuition, Spirit, and a little experience in business myself, to guide me.

When I first envisioned Lisa Lola I saw myself holding workshops, however I never thought creating them would come so soon, especially within the first year! In August I held my first workshop on energy anatomy, in November were 2 Chakra Yoga Weekend Intensives, December was an Emotional Detoxing Class, a New Year’s Day Power Of Intention workshop, and a weekly Chakra Balancing Meditation at Karma Tribe Yoga on Sunday evenings. Wow! Talk about Spirit creating through me!

Not to mention, the countless brave Souls who I have had the honor to work with, call clients and soon, friends. I love working with people and helping them heal in ways they never thought possible. To witness transformation through the power of love is truly the most fulfilling and impactful “work” I could have ever imagined myself doing in this lifetime, and I am so utterly grateful for the experience.

On the personal side, 2016 was not without it’s hardships, and causes for mass celebration! Early in the year I battled a pretty deep depression – again – this one kind of hitting me out of nowhere. It felt heavy and seemed like no matter what I did it kept sucking me back in. Through faith, love, gentleness – and a lot of personal work – I continued on, making a new connection with depression – that it was my teacher here to show me a lot about healing, among many other things.

In April things really started to spice up as I met, and fell in love with whom I truly feel to be my beloved! I experienced love and partnership in a whole new way and continued to learn, learn, learn, – and more freaking learning ;p – from this amazing teacher of mine! As Spirit would have it, my beloved and I moved into my dream home – literally. I dreamed of living at this place 3 years before we met and then without knowing that, he sent me the link to the exact place I wanted so long ago. Wow! We got it and moved in together in July. MAGIC!

In September I turned 31 and really started to come into my womanhood. Releasing more of the little girl, and standing firmly in my feminine. Dropping more of the small self’s worries; specifically around eating, food, body, control and perfection. 2016 was the last of a major ego death that had been going on for a very long time. To say it’s “completely gone” or that I am egoless wouldn’t be accurate – and far from it – as we’re never fully “clear” of anything, however the power those things had over me is for the most part, gone, and I feel as free as I’ve ever been.

I feel a sense of fulfillment, humility, and grace as I close 2016 and open to an exciting, expanding, and loving 2017! I hope the same for you my friends.

May you be well, may you feel whole, may you experience magic and unconditional love. AHO!

1 Year Anniversary!

llha 1Hello beloveds,

I can’t believe it’s already been a YEAR since I first started Lisa Lola Healing Arts – WOWZERS!! To think about everything that had to happen, what had to be thought of, meditated on, dreamt about, imagined beyond all realms, pondered and discussed at length, is truly a Miracle.

What’s even more, was developing the ability to trust, trust, and trust again, that it creating this business was going to work out. In the developing months of creating Lisa Lola, I was beckoned to create a whole new relationship with trust – I had too in order to be a success. I didn’t call in trust though, it called in me. And even more accurately, it was like it was always there, waiting for me to align myself with it. Really, trust was not something I saw in my mind that I “had to do,” it felt more like something that came along that I innately knew how to do, and simply did it like I would drink water if I were thirsty. There was this felt sense of coming home, like aw yes, trusting feels right, I’ll go with that – without “thinking” about it.

I have seen within myself, friends and colleagues, this same occurring happen. When one lines up with what they truly believe and feel to be their “work” “mission” “purpose” in the world, trust is right their waiting for you to sink into. Did my mind still go haywire and have doubt, fear, and “all the things” come up? Yes, of course! But what still remained was this feeling in my body that I could trust in myself, in Spirit, in what I felt to be my calling, that it was all going to work for me, in one way or another. So I just kept – and keep – coming back to the feeling of trust I have within myself.

And I’ll tell you what, when you connect with the trust inside of you – which is one in the same as trust in the Universe, God, Spirit, the Divine – the possibilities are endless! And I do mean endless! When you come into alignment with yourself, you’re coming into alignment with God, and inside the God space is where all of the abundance, joy, bliss, Magic and possibility of Miracles can occur! All within the limitless space of the Universe, can we make manifest that which we desire. That is our ability as sovereign beings.

Creating Lisa Lola has given me so much. It established a platform for the building of my Faith. Faith in myself to show up for myself, for others, to be of service to myself and others, and to truly take care of myself inside of whatever experience I was having. Learning to honor myself and my needs moment by moment, to go inward with myself, show myself endless amounts of compassion and forgiveness, something I never had access too before. And by access I mean something I never had full awareness or consciousness of, therefore I couldn’t get to it, it was either fully or partially in my blind spot.

To love, love, LOVE myself in all of my ways of being, in all expressions, emotions, sticky situations, self-sabotage, fear, anger and doubt. To continue to show up for myself, time and time again, even when I didn’t want too. While in the amidst of countless breakdowns, cycles of depression, and daily anxiety, TRUST that all was in Divine order. That I would come out of what I was going through eventually, and I would fully allow myself to be inside of the experience to see, feel, learn, and heal what was crying out for my attention. To hold myself and let go of the timeline I had created for my healing. “I will be fully done with this issue by the end of next month and ready to tackle the next thing.” HA! How many times I fooled myself going around this linear merry-go-round. What a trip! And it still continues to be. A Trip. A Journey. An adventure I savor being on with myself and whomever else I line up with energetically. Enjoying the ride – for however long it goes!

So Happy Anniversary to me! A time of celebration around the holidays. May we all take the time to celebrate ourselves, our accomplishments, our breakdowns and falls into the shadow, only to emerge again, stronger, more embodied then before.

If you’d like to speak one-on-one with me about what is coming up for you on your current soul path or blocks you’re having to trust or anything of resonance, fill out the contact form below.

Being in Love with Me

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!

Getting Healthy, What’s it Going to Take?

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.

Aho!

1st Intro to the Chakras Workshop, Success!

Introduction to the Chakras Workshop!

Introduction to the Chakras Workshop!

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!

Workshop Participants

Workshop Participants

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!

Introduction to the Chakras, 1st Workshop!

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.chakra-system

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.

For more information visit Introduction to the Chakras Workshop Facebook event. Space is limited. Reserve in advance, or show up the day of. To pre-register click: Intro Chakra Registration and click on the donation button on the bottom.

Lisa Lola Healing Arts Website has Launched!

Beloveds,

It is with much anticipation, inner strength and joy to announce the launch of my new business and website. I couldn’t feel more on purpose with this work. I truly feel the healing arts is my calling and sacred work in this life time:  I am open, operating, and ready as I’ll ever be. Lisa Lola Healing Arts is now live at lisalola.net

What is Lisa Lola Healing Arts? It is an alternative healing modality company that provides energetic balancing and supportive services to assist individuals along their own spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical journey’s. It is essentially the services I provide as a healing channel. My purpose is to help people heal themselves so they are free to power-fully choose and live the life they desire.

I offer and combine a list of services that have been shown to assist people in their own healing through chakra balancing, channeling, access bars consciousness, guided meditation, journal clearing exercises, and essential oil massage.

Who do I serve? The type of service I provide is for anyone in search of alternative healing. Whether the person is looking to heal deep emotional wounds, destructive mental thought patterns, physical trauma, relationship distress, or they are simply looking for spiritual communication and guidance, I help people connect to their energetic body and the spirit realm, open their consciousness, and expand their relational field for deep and transformative healing. 

This is a very summarized description of my business, what I do, what I offer, and who I can help. For more detail on the services I offer visit my Services page. If you’d like more in-depth information and would rather discuss please don’t hesitate to Contact me at lisa@lisalola.net to schedule a phone consultation, 319.310.2747.

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,

Lisa
