Love is the great miracle cure. Loving ourselves works miracles in our lives.

 Intuitive Guidance for Independent Seekers 

with Laurie Bell

A Three-Month Program of Individual Coaching / Counseling

Do you identify as an artist, an outsider, a healer, an eccentric? 
Do you feel you’re on a different wavelength than most people?
Do you know you’re unique and doubt you’ll ever find and sustain true connection?

I’ve designed this program with you in mind!

As an independent spirit, you’re used to doing your own inner work.

However, places within can sometimes be hard to change by ourselves.

It’s easier with a guide.  I’ll walk with you.

 This program is designed for you if you

▪   have worked on yourself for a long time but still don’t feel free;

▪   want support and at the same time want your independence respected;

▪   often feel isolated and alone in groups;

▪   are extremely compassionate—a loving and generous caregiver—but often don’t take care of yourself;

▪   are deeply intuitive and clearly see answers for others, but don’t trust your intuition for yourself.

I’d like to tell you more about myself:

I’m an ordained Interfaith Minister and a Reiki Master.

I’m an independent seeker who has practiced for a long time. In that time I’ve developed my gifts of empathy and intuition, and learned other tools that I want to share with you.

I know how difficult it is to feel you’ll never have what you most desire. I know intimately the struggle to release the past–unable to let go and move forward.  I’ve had great loss in life and know how it is to feel so alone–the only person in the universe and afraid you’ll never find love.

Not until I found an intuitive counselor who understood, respected, and guided me was I able to find peace.

In my explorations during the past 30 years, I’ve worked with many different people in emotional and spiritual pain, including successful artists, writers, musicians and spiritual counselors. I’ve also worked with homeless people with AIDS, people who are dying, addicts, and “career criminals.” The common thread was their desire to heal their pain and to know peace–to grow and to learn.

These people became my teachers. I facilitated deep inner transformations that inspired me with awe and gave me reason to believe in the extraordinary power of the life force. The most important lesson I learned is that we’re all the same–everyone wants to love and to be loved. The forms of our lives may differ but we all seek love. It’s through love that we heal.

So I’ve created Embracing the Light Within for sensitive souls, seekers of the light. This three-month program is designed to help you identify and release negative beliefs and energetic blocks. I’ll help you become conscious of how you limit yourself. I’ll support your empowerment and hand you tools to create the life you truly desire.

Let yourself be silently drawn by the strange pull of what you really love. It will not lead you astray. When you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy.— Rumi

 I invite you to step into a 3-month journey of discovery.

Intuitive Guidance for Independent Seekers

What to Expect

My commitment is to offer you encouragement and guidance. In sessions I’ll partner with you empathically and tell you what I see intuitively are the causes of your pain and help you transform them.  

I believe every experience in our lives, no matter how painful or joyful, is a golden nugget, a seed of our individuality, integral to the beauty of our unfolding. I look to see the true goodness in every human being. I support you to recognize the beauty and power of who you are and to know you’re worthy of love.

I’m available to you throughout the three months. In between sessions I offer email and text support.

The Structure of the Program

Your voice is important in creating with me what will best serve your needs.

Our outer world reflects our inner world.  All transformation occurs within first, and then manifests in our lives. We change our relationship to ourselves when we acknowledge our negative patterns and release them through the power of love.

Identifying with negative patterns make them difficult to dissolve. Awareness of this false identification lets a new, self-loving identity emerge.

our solitude will be a support and a home for you, even in the midst of unfamiliar circumstances, and from it you will find all your paths — Rilke

The Chakras

The chakras are centers in our body through which our vital energy flows. Corresponding to our internal organs, emotions and spiritual consciousness, they are part of our subtle energy body, not our physical body. There are many chakras in the body.  Seven are considered most important. 

In this program we will journey through the lower three chakras as a way of exploring the issues contained within them.  These three chakras are the foundation of our relationship to our external world. We will look at where you are investing your energy, where you may be losing power, and ways to reclaim yourself and strengthen and balance your energy field.   

First Chakra:  “All is One”
The first chakra is the place your Spirit enters into physical life. It is where we are connected to the earth—the forest, the trees, the flowers, the smells of life. It is also our connection to family and every group experience, belief, point of view, thought form —that you ever had. In this chakra we find our life’s direction and focus.  
The first chakra holds our relationship to the grounded, material world. It holds your earth identity, ancestral background, religious traditions, superstitions— all the first  authorities that told you what to think and what to feel.  This chakra seeks protection and safety for our primary survival needs.

Second  Chakra:  “Honor One Another”
The second chakra is the partnership chakra. Here we shift from obeying tribal authorities to engaging with others.  In this chakra we begin to learn how to live in the world and earn money. It’s the center of our relationship to creativity, sexuality, finances, pleasure, empathy, nurturing, intimacy and passion.  
All relationships bring up conflicts. The second chakra introduces us to the power of choice and the duality of living from fear or faith. It is in this chakra that we begin to know ourselves and we begin the journey of developing our own personal power.  Here we become conscious of the responsibility in the power of choice.   

Third Chakra: “Honor Oneself”
In the third chakra we develop a relationship with ourselves. We are still dealing with the external world, but now we are relating from our personal power and our own individuality. The third chakra is our personality, our self-esteem, our gut-intuition.

Having the confidence to manifest our goals, to promote ourselves and to market our work is a third chakra issue.  

In the third chakra we learn to care for ourselves and to trust ourselves. This is the beginning of our ability to stand confidently in the external world. It is where we feel self-respect, self-worth and self-love.

This is a 1-1 counseling/coaching program.  

The program is ongoing. You can enter the program at any time—on the 1st or 15th of the month. The program will be a three month program from the time you start.   

We’ll have 4 weekly sessions in the first month and then meet every other week for months 2 and 3, for a total of 8 sessions. You can request sessions to be more frequent, as well as take breaks as needed, as long as they happen within the three months. We’ll take a break for the holidays in November and December.

The sessions can be by phone, Skype or in person in my New York office.

Throughout the program I’ll suggest readings and videos to enhance your intuition and deepen your understanding.

Reviews from My Clients

Laurie Bell is a human being with extraordinary talents as a comprehensive healer, teacher and facilitator. Her gifts are well honed, her compassion is truly felt and she has worked miracles on clients I have referred to her. I am proud to consider her an esteemed mentor, a gifted teacher and one of those rare souls who truly does make a difference in this world.

          Dorothy Nolan, Spiritual & Psychic Teacher, Medium

For four years, Laurie held space for me to be. And the space she held was that of her devotional heart.

I was like a tightly closed rosebud afraid to unfurl. In Laurie’s loving presence I allowed myself to open every one of my petals, slowly, so I could reveal my beauty. And as I did Laurie reflected my beauty back to me. I learned to feel my own beauty. I learned how to be present to the depths of my own soul.

There is no greater gift! Thank you, Laurie, I am forever grateful.

          Maryanne S., Artist and Writer

 Laurie has a unique ability to perceive and communicate what a person needs to grow. I felt completely understood in our very first appointment, which was remarkable and helpful to me as we laid out my areas for growth and goals for our work together. Part mother, part advocate and part coach, Laurie is truly one of the greatest teachers and communicators I have ever met in all my work in advanced personal, professional and academic settings over the years. It has truly been a blessing to work with Laurie. I see results already and I have a sense of calm and confidence that these deep areas for growth I desire I will achieve.  

          MaryAnn, NYC, Executive Coach & Entrepreneur

Laurie has helped me and is helping me to change my life in the most loving way.

          Laurence Elle Groux, Artist

Although I count on Laurie for her caring support – I also recognize the great personal strengths I have developed through our relationship.  I think one of her greatest gifts is her ability to both nurture and empower at the same time.  Total acceptance!
