Happy New Year!!!! 

I love the symbology and unique cyclical significance that comes with starting a new year. Intuitively our minds gear up for new beginnings, our souls search for bigger meaning, our bodies crave larger change, and our emotions work overtime to finally find our own inner resolve. Just as the holiday season can bring feelings of love and compassion, the New Year is very often accompanied by excitement, refocused direction, and the anticipation of better things yet to come.

The interesting thing about each of these calendar periods is that our society has been trained to look for harmony and resolve only once per year. Crazy, but true. Of course the reality of our existence is that cycles happen all around us, all the time. Leaving our anticipated happiness and big life changes to the count down of a clock actually seems pretty darn barbaric, considering we each hold the capacity to create change on a continual basis.

Perhaps if there is one thing to learn from this obscure cycle we willingly participate in, it is that we can actually learn to find inner peace, goodwill, and outer change each and every day of the year. That is the reality I strive to achieve. To look at the bigger picture and see new potential on the horizon, always.

That being said, this year, in my own little world, the count down of the New Year's clock actually had huge significance to my work and my family. For many divinely inspired reasons and synchronicities that only come when two souls are in alignment and working towards a common goal, I have been blessed to purchase the Love & Light Emporium here at SOULworks. This beautiful creation was put together by my dear friend Brenda Dutertre. Over the years I have watched Brenda grow and nurture the front space at SOULworks into a beautiful safe haven for customers to come and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere while shopping for their mystical treasures. I hope and aspire to do the same. Thank you to Brenda, for entrusting me and my family with your beautiful creation and thank you in advance to all others who continue to find solitude and spiritual expansion within SOULworks. And don't worry, Brenda will still be available at SOULworks, doing what she does best, helping people find their inner peace, strength, and harmony.  


Much love and blessings to you.

Inspiration and Guidance by Lauren Heistad

"Spiritual Expansion is not always graceful, but it is always full of grace." Lauren Heistad

If I were to tell you...

If I were to tell you that after all these years of spiritual expansion, I still worry every day on whether I am doing the right thing for myself and my family... would it help you to release some of the pressure you put on your own self to always have the answers?

If I were to confide that I still stumble and fall along my journey... would it help you to get yourself back up and keep going?

If I were to whisper my truth - that despite my stepping forward, I am still essentially hiding from truly being seen ... would it help you to move beyond your own comfort zones and try something new?

If I were to divulge my inner fears of failure and the constant insecurities that wreck havoc on my mind... would it help you to become more confident in your own realized potential?

If I were to jump into the abyss and trust in the divine plan of my own SOULworks despite my shaking knees and fears of moving further into the public eye... would it help you to find the courage to embrace your own soul path?

Good then. I will continue to tell you my worries, confide in my downfalls, whisper my truths, divulge in my fears, and jump into my life with both feet. Because despite how unready I feel about the changes before me, change is here... and so am I.
