"Love and compassion are not meant to be seasonal. Learn to preserve the Magic of Christmas by embodying this compassionate state of mind, feeling this joyful state of inner peace, and directing heartfelt blessings towards humanity, ALWAYS.

- Lauren Heistad


November 30,  2017


Life seems to be propelling everyone into change whether we feel ready for it or not. But here is a fact: you are most certainly ready for change or your current inner nudges, opportunities and experiences would not be presenting themselves. Move forward despite your own personal doubts and fears, and let 2018 be your gateway to new adventures of divine potential. You are ready. Walk through that door of change with your head held high and your heart open to the possibilities of your own unique divine expression of source energy.

While the last month of 2017 is upon us, please take the time to also relax and honor how many changes, awakened moments, and personal life experiences you have already encountered. I will not say this has been an easy year, but it has most definitely provided many soulful moments of expansion. Breathe in the knowing that you are almost finished with one of the most challenging, ground breaking years of human history. I guarantee the times we live in will be talked about by mystics and truth tellers for generations to come. And I know full well you can say without a shadow of a doubt, that you showed up willing and able to consciously help create change.

May this holiday season bring you the inner peace and outer realities your heart desires. May the next year be filled with magical moments of awareness and soulful expansion. And may your love for yourself and all others grow exponentially with the dawning of each and every day. 

Much love and blessings to you.

Inspiration and Guidance by Lauren Heistad

"Take the path of MOST resistance. The path of least resistance is only your comfort zone in disguise" Lauren Heistad

Stand in your Perceived Weaknesses

I have both heard and used the term, "stand in your power" for many years. I have also worked far too long to achieve this state of mind and yet still struggle to fully embrace my life experiences and teachings with absolute confidence. No matter how much inner work I have done or outer help I have received, to this day I feel just as insecure as I have ever been, perhaps even more so depending on the day. Granted, I may not be insecure in the same areas of my life as I have been in the past, for I have certainly grown and learned from my life experiences. However, overall my demeanor of insecurities and a huge lack of self confidence still exists. 

I have always taken my insecurities to heart and until recently considered this trait to be a downfall of mine. I always wondered how it was I could teach, give guidance, and move forward with my life path with all my insecurities still in tact? In truth, I have learned to not perceive my insecurities as a weakness, but in fact a strength. Yup, I really did just say that!

Defining the term more clearly, being insecure actually means someone who is self-conscious, unassertive, humble, shy, timid, unsure, and not always firm or set in their ways. To be honest, I actually value these traits in both myself and all others, and often prefer them to those who are oozing with self confidence and certainty. Not that I don't value a confident person, but I do see the value in someone who leaves room for more growth and awareness to present itself.

At one point, humanity was very confident the earth was flat. Other times, people have been adamantly secure in their knowing that life after death was non existent. For centuries, people have even been preaching and demonstrating their unwavering faith that they know exactly what will transpire during these prophesied times. To those confident people I simply ask, are you so sure you know all the answers? Are you confident that your soul has already encountered all there is to experience? Is there validity in your security of thinking the current teachings are all factual and real? Does your confidence account for humanities evolution and the potential for the unknown? Do you truly stand in your power or have you yet to even fully understand how much power and potential there is to stand in? 

There is literally only one thing I am completely secure and confident in... the knowing that there are many unknowns yet to be discovered, understandings yet to surface, and divine potential yet to be tapped into. In fact, it is pretty damn exciting to be open to the possibilities, realities, and awareness of discoveries yet to come. 

Do yourself a favor and stop beating yourself up over your lack of confidence or your abundance of insecurities. Perhaps it is time to recognize and embrace those perceived weaknesses, as the true strengths that they really are. When properly understood, insecurities are not what keeps one from moving forward, they are the fabric of life which propel us to create new pathways of awareness and understandings. Confidence is overrated...the meek will truly inherit the earth by delving into the depths of our still very unknown and ever expandable soulful potential.
