The underlying direction of our soul path is already in motion. We are the ones who resist or fight the flow of the current 
by worrying about how we will get there, what it will look like or when it will unfold. It is time to stop worrying about the unknown and just follow  the path of your own unique soul.

- Lauren Heistad


October 2016


It is time to follow the path of your heart. Everyone is feeling the urgency to make changes in their lives. How smooth you move into your own life transitions and spiritual transformations will be in direct alignment to how freely you surrender to the path of your own SOULworks.

As always, if you require support for healing, clarity or direction, please book a one-on-one session with any of the talented facilitators working out of SOULworks. They are sure to point you in the right direction and create that enlightened, balanced state of being you desire.  There are also many wonderful workshops and opportunities coming up at SOULworks that definitely help with finding your balance. Be sure to check those out too.

Much love and blessings to you.

SOULworks Inspiration and Guidance by Lauren Heistad


Rapids of Change

I find we are being pushed and pulled in many directions right now but the underlying path is always very clear. Even when we try to change the course of our own SOULworks through fear of the unknown, our heart still pulls us in the direction of our own unique path. There is a lot of resistance to change right now and yet somehow it is unfolding anyway. We are being called to start fulfilling our life purpose even if we are not aware as to what that all entails yet. Going with the flow is by far easier then going against it. Just keep in mind if the flow you are following is the old outdated story or the new direction you seek to create. There comes a time when there is a fork in the river and you must make a choice. Will you choose to follow your own path and be true to your heart regardless of the size of the rapids? Or will you keep to the smooth, familiar trail because it is the easy route to follow. It is always a choice. God speed.
