Words from Lara:

“Start doing what you love and then you will also actually be really good in it. And that’s the magnetism, that’s what you will radiate, and that’s what people will want to learn from you or receive from you.”

“Reiki isn’t something we have to do professionally, but it’s something that we can give to plants, dogs, everything-- because it’s really a way to come to a place of loving kindness, which is healing-- inside self, to others. If we all do that, the world will be a better place.”

“If we start showing up for ourselves in any way, whether it’s meditation or going to a healing session, sometimes we can have immediate feelings of shifts, and sometimes it can continue to go on and then, years later, all of a sudden a release happens that was initiated in that moment, but it just takes its time, it’s own agenda to open up.”

“I use the intention of energy, of being the vessel for energy, it’s not generated inside of me, it’s just to be the clear vessel for it. It’s love. Reiki, to me, could just be translated as pure love.”

“Something in this moment happens when we sit down with an intention, when we make space to heal, to look at ourselves, to put the intention of becoming a better version of ourselves. And this is really just to say ‘I wanna feel better, I wanna get to know myself better.”
