Today we’d like to introduce you to Lauren Gonzales.
Alright, so thank you so much for sharing your story and insight with our readers. To kick things off, can you tell us a bit about how you got started?
We don’t want to have to hit rock bottom to begin our spiritual awakening, but it’s often the entry point. And it’s this space where you are completely and totally surrendered and ready to try anything to get to the core, the roots, the why. And that’s where I was at. (But a broken heart and debilitating anxiety can do that to you.) And so began my path of self-healing. Although the healing journey is never “complete” so long as we are in our physical bodies, I have come a long way. I’m no longer the one who gives my power away, nor the one who dims my light according to who walks by, and no longer giving fear all of me. The Reiki path plays the largest part in my healing and continues to do so to this day. And so now, I teach what I know. Here’s what worked for me — let’s discover what works for you.
Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
The road is rarely smooth when it comes to spiritual awakening — we think it’s this beautiful rainbows and sunshine — but it’s actually many dark nights of the soul. It’s feeling, deeply. But here’s what I learned — you can always choose your response. So the question I ask myself is, “Ok Lauren – ordeal or adventure?” I’ll choose adventure because at the end of the day, every obstacle, every challenge, it is For us: to learn, to heal, to grow. If only we can remain open to the lesson…
Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
I chose the “Artist” category because in the Healing Community, we all share this work so beautifully and uniquely. What sets me apart is my own voice; my own light. Healing work is a beautiful dance.
My specialty, my passion, is to merge Reiki with the Akashic Records. It’s a beautiful thing and I am so grateful I get to do magical work for magical pay.
Is there anything else you’d like to share with our readers?
The only thing I would add is that if it’s your first time receiving Reiki, go in without expectations. Leave what you read online or your bff’s experience at the door, and then open your heart to receive.
And if your first time was nothing special, I would invite you to try again. Maybe it wasn’t the right teacher. Maybe your heart wasn’t fully open to receive. Maybe you were overthinking the process. Try again.
Reiki, when you allow it, can be a transformative practice for you to step into the fullest expression of you.
