Do you remember when life felt blissful, fun and free?
I remembered. I did what I loved and what lit me up. I felt happy and free.
But then, all of that seemed to fade away. Life happened.
And with it came - illness, stress, struggle, anxiety, trauma, heart-break, disappointment, depression, despair...
Unhappy. Confused. Unfulfilled. Hiding.
I lost my shine. My radiance.
I was a shell of my former self, of my true self.
You see, I tried to be "good" and "enough" and "appropriate".
I tried to do it "right".
I gave it my all. I gave it my everything.
Because that's just me, and that's how I do things.
But the truth is, it took me so far from the real me, from my truth, from my bliss...
That it left me depressed, sick and broke.
Actually, it left me in bed curled up in a ball - broken, devastated by illness and ravaged with despair.
So yeah, I got the message!
My life is to serve me.
To serve my bliss, my expression, my freedom and my expansion.
I know what you are thinking!
How could I say such a thing? That I'm not here to serve you.
But here is the thing - You have to help yourself. You have to serve you.
To "Sit. Feast on your Life."
Delicious. Rich. Full. Life.
Then, when you are in overflow, then you will serve the world and everyone around you more than ever before.
And, I should know!
I'm Lauren Raso, the wildly passionate, sassy, Old-Soul friend - here to inspire and uplift you.
Think of me as a catalyst...an activator.
Because you have to help yourself. But that doesn't mean I don't care.
My desire is to shine my brilliant light, to inspire and uplift you - so you realize your power and magnificence, you find true self-love and you learn to serve your bliss, expression, freedom and expansion.
You are phenomenal. A powerful creator.
And you have the power to create the life you really want.
Life is meant to feel free and fun, to be pleasure-filled, rich and overflowing.
Sound good to you?
My story has been roller-coaster ride of ups and down, pain and bliss, depression and joy, sickness and health.
A constant evolution of understanding, awareness, learnings.
I am grateful for every moment of pain, trauma, heartache, illness, despair.
Because it has made me who I am today.
It has caused my clarity, my alignment, my evolution and my expansion.
A bit about Me...
I'm Lauren Raso. A wonderful(!) contradiction of feisty power and delicate, sensual feminine.
Passionate, driven, sassy AF mixed with open, loyal and loving.
I feel deeply. I love whole-heartedly. I live veraciously.
I took the very scenic route with bonus roller-coaster ride to self-love, forgiveness, self-expression, bliss and freedom.
I finally discovered that everything starts within, everything starts with self and everything you want is already yours.
I share with you innate wisdom, lessons learned and a ginormous toolbox of skills, techniques, knowledge and experience of inspiration, courage, hope, passion, expression and true - love, bliss, abundance and freedom.
Catalyst, Activator & Mentor
I believe within you, you already know what you really want and who you really are.
My work is as a Catalyst, Activator & Mentor to help you peel off the layers of conditioning, and B.S that is keeping you from being who you truly are and living the life you truly want.
To re-connect to it, own it, claim it and then turn all of that magnificent power and potential into the life and person you really are.
Sometimes that means forgiving ourselves, accepting ourselves, loving ourselves for the past, the pain, the "mistakes" and the scenic journey we have taken and then taking action to create our dreams.
I have invested over $100,000 in education, training, coaching, mentors and practitioners. When you work with me, you get all of this, plus over 15 years of study into happiness, spirituality, mindset, wealth and prosperity consciousness, manifestation and Universal Laws, success principles, health and wellness, feminine/masculine energy, travel, art, design...
Writer, Poet & Speaker
I love words. I love the way they make me feel, the emotions they invoke and the connection they create.
I write messages, books, prose, poetry.
Jeweller, Artist & Designer
With a Fine Arts degree in Metalwork and Jewellery Design, I have exhibited and sold jewellery in exhibitions, galleries and boutiques. Since childhood I have always loved creating, making, crafting and playing in any and all mediums.
I design and create stunning jewellery pieces, ceramics and paint.
I have been exploring this world for many years and continue to do so every year. Travel and the beauty of the natural world fills me up, leaves me awe-struck and sometimes challenges me and pushes my comfort zone.
I have back-packed alone(!) South America for 10-months, back-packed SE Asia, traveled all over Europe, Mexico, USA, Indonesia, Thailand. I am currently being pulled to Costa Rica and the Maldives.
I have packed up and moved multiples times! And have lived in Melbourne, Sydney, London, Hamilton Island in the Whitsundays and Bali.
Healing, Wellness, Physiology & Nutrition
My journey of healing and wellness started early on with asthma at 2, eczema at 5, allergies at 12 and so on. Add in adrenal fatigue, depression, anxiety, PTSD, panic attacks, digestion issues, food intolerance and allergies, histamine intolerance,
I've run the gauntlet and given every modality under the sun a go! It lead me to a degree in Human Physiology and Post Grad in Nutrition, and working with many people all over the world to create and reach a place of thriving health and wellness.
Coffee, Dark chocolate/ gluten-free chocolate brownie/ raw chocolate tarts, Thai food and Bolognaise (I'm half Italian!).
Dancing, weight training, yoga and a sweaty grind on the dance floor.
Sunrise ocean dips at Bondi Beach or Bali, the beach, sunbathing and watching sunset.
Lingerie, high heels, cocktail dresses and black eyeliner.
Interior design, vibrant abstract paintings, contemporary jewellery, ceramics and nature photography.
Massage, Kinesiology, Acupuncture and pretty much all mind-body-energy modalities.
That's enough about me!
Now it's time for you to shine!
For you to break-free of doubt, worry, fear, blocks, pain
and limiting patterns.
For you to create the life you desire and deserve.
