Welcome to a fresh new week of possibilities and opportunities to work, play, rest and create!
Last Friday I took my first step in slowly emerging from the “nest” of the last year. I hosted a Pop Up Café for Soul-preneurs. I’ve been hosting these pop ups for years throughout Atlanta and in places where I travel. It’s always so fun to connect with creative, conscious business owners – sometimes familiar faces and often people I’ve only met on facebook or virtually – like my assistant Tiffany! It was so great to see her in 3-D!
We enjoyed sitting outside and immediately dove into rich conversation together.. The thirst for in person together and meaningful conversation is palpable. I’ll have more of these this summer, especially before I move off toward ocean sunrise’s in my relocation!
Speaking of ocean sunrises…I only have 1 spot left in the Creative Business Retreat by-the-Sea in October. Here you get play, create and rejuvenate the soul of your business…and you! Let me know if you want to talk about coming this year!
Also, I hope you enjoy today’s article about going beyond Law of Attraction. I’ve been working for years with clients not only on their marketing and business strategies but also on liberating that new empowering image who is finally free to share her voice and her message. It’s that stuff underneath blocking your most free and powerful self that keeps Law of Attraction in a small box of attracting ideal parking spaces. (we love that and so much more is possible!).
Wishing you a week filled with big flow, easy expansion, and actions aligned with your soul!
Law of Attraction is Only Half the Story
I’ve been a huge Law of Attraction fan for decades. It started when I ran across a book about Edgar Cayce. There was the Edgar Cayce Center down the street from where I lived in my 20’s along the oceanfront in Virginia Beach, which always intrigued me.
Edgar Cayce could fall asleep with a book under his pillow and he woke up knowing the whole content in the book including which page the information was on. Whaaat? He was a medical intuitive who could channel what was going on with a patient and provide help and relief. It opened my eyes to a greater potential for human beings.
Then I found the book Psycho-Cybernetics and I was fascinated by the idea that there was more to being successful than just hard work. That what we THOUGHT about ourselves and our goals mattered. It wasn’t simply that hard work pays off. (We all have seen examples of how that just isn’t so – I know some really struggling hard workers!)
Then in the 90’s I was introduced to Abraham-Hicks. I was enthralled. I joined the CD of the week club! My first membership program. (Oh, wait, that’s not true! In my teens I always joined those Get 10 cassette tape for $1 clubs! I digress.)
Abraham-Hicks changed my life. I immersed into Law of Attraction teachings. I always believed in possibilities and yet I struggled with my own beliefs about myself. I was super shy in high school and had a soft voice so I often felt invisible. I worked hard (there it is again!) on overcoming my shyness and fear of saying the wrong thing.
Law of Attraction principles – thoughts become things, visualize success, vision boards, setting intentions are integrated into my life and business. In fact, I was so passionate about LOA that I incorporated it into my coaching business. I created beautiful index cards for Intentions and Daily Giggle Goals. I created notepads for JoyFlow Sightings, just to share a few!
Those products are still a part of my business today.
What I realized through the years is that we can visualize, dream board, pray, ritualize all we want but if there are core beliefs that you don’t deserve success, success will ruin your family life, you aren’t good enough or you are afraid of being seen, or you can’t really charge THAT kind of money…well then, you’ll only get so far in your success.
Law of Attraction is like icing on the cake. The cake…is YOU. Your deeper beliefs, thoughts and feelings about yourself, your worth and sharing your voice.
When you combine the positive dreaming of attraction principles, with clear inner energy alignment and creative productivity(aligned action!)….you will truly be living INTO the success you’ve always dreamed of.
Are you ready to shift those limiting beliefs, align your energy and open up your Field of Potentiality for greater, richer, more sustainable success?
The core focus of our work together starts with alignment.
Imagine creating alignment of your energy, power and focus so that you are wide open to the field of possibilities and flow is a daily way of life, rather than feeling pressure to constantly be hustling for results.
From this place you are so much more potent and so much more is possible with ease and joy!
What’s possible when you clear your blocks and limiting beliefs…you create with the Universal Abundance Current supporting you. I know…that sounds pretty woo. Actually, it’s full on woo-woo! But it’s true and surprisingly practical. It’s what makes the practical stick.
You can believe in attraction principles but if you are still holding beliefs and energy that hold you back from speaking your message and passion fully, sharing your truth, being visible and actually making great money…then all the positive thinking won’t really work…or it’s working a very low level.
So much more is possible for you.
Believe me, I’m a huge Law of Attraction fan and have been for decades. I’ve always done well in my business….but I’ve also always had bigger dreams of changing more people’s lives and making an even bigger difference. Of making bigger money so I can fund my dreams of travel, a beautiful house by the water and knowing I’m going into retirement years (whatever THAT means) with loads of options instead of limited possibilities. The more I clear my disempowering beliefs, calm my nervous system and align my image of being a woman who lives by the water (for example)…well, that’s what I’m stepping into at the end of the summer!
The opportunities, the synchronicities, the ideas and the inner power and courage to create opens up!
If you are ready to immerse in shifting your field of energy – inside and out and creating the business and life of your dreams..let’s talk about working together!
I have an opening for one private client in July. This could be you!
This is about allowing your Souls Work. Stop listening to all the “shoulds & hustle” messages . Let’s be more discerning about your marketing strategies and business model.
Let’s start with how to calm your nervous system so you are in alignment with your thoughts, choices and actions for a more fuller success…and let’s face it…it’s way more fun too!
Together we can liberate your voice, power, and mission so you can grow a business that provides you the freedom you desire, meaningful work and the income to fund your dreams.
I specialize in working with passionate ripple makers, who are good at their work, and want to change more lives without creating a maddening marketing machine, but know you’re playing small and can’t quite figure out their way around that!
Reach out and we will set up a time to talk about your Soul Work, your Infinite Field, shifting the blocks and let’s dive into what’s possible! (just send me an email!)

“I have had the good fortune to work with Laura West for several years on several Passion Projects and in the Joyful Business Studio. Whether working on a short-term goal or on a bigger picture such as my business, Laura can hold the energy, vision and focus powerfully. At the same time, she is adept at guiding me like a Sherpa through whatever pitfalls, crags and wrong turns life brings as I climb to the peak of my dreams.
While expertly guiding me, Laura is also a compassionate witness to my process. She has the patience to listen to my frustrations, mental and emotional blocks, and self-judgments without ever losing sight of the work we are doing and why we are doing it. She has an uncanny ability to help me find the gold in my real or imagined limitations so I can learn and grow from them.
Laura gently but firmly prods me to embrace my own creative abilities, expand them, and lift them up in service to others. Her creativity is never limited to how to do something, but always includes why to do it, when is the best timing, who it may benefit and what else can be done to follow-up or complete the original goal. Her thinking is panoramic and detailed at the same time.
I can’t speak highly enough of Laura, her insights, her creativity, her down-to-Earth practicality and her compassionate and clear-headed wisdom. She has been a great gift for me, my life and my business.”
