In today’s interview episode, Lauren Venable and I talk about postpartum depression, the loneliness of motherhood in the early days and how Lauren got matched with a counselor/energy healer that was able to help her get out of her undiagnosed depression.
In the interview, Lauren shares how it took 3 counseling sessions before she could even answer the question: “What do you want?” and how she went into counseling thinking she needed to fix her marriage only to be surprised that it was more about learning how to take care of herself.
She also shares how difficult it was to admit the level of support she needed in order to feel like a happy, whole, passionate and radiant woman again. We also talk about how your radiance and light is a much greater gift than your selfless service ever could be.
Learn how Lauren was able to reignite her passion and desire after struggling with undiagnosed postpartum depression as she chose to sit with fear, instead of waiting to overcome it.
Lauren is a meditation junkie on a mission to help women experience more wholeness, passion, and self-love in their lives. She graduated with a BA in Psychology in 2011 and went on to become a certified Yoga Instructor before settling in as a wife and stay-at-home mom at 24.
After 2 years of quietly struggling with Postpartum Anxiety & Depression, she began her journey of self-healing and become a certified Reiki Practitioner in 2015. Since then she has used meditation, energy healing, and empowered storytelling to overcome anxiety, depression, and deep-seeded insecurity.
When her marriage ended in late 2015, she knew it could do one of two things: break her down or break her open. She chose to be cracked wide open and transformed. Since then, she has built two successful businesses, worked through some major heart (& life) healing, and cultivated a deep sense of self-worth, passion, and excitement in her day-to-day life.
Through her private coaching/energy healing sessions, group programs, and online courses, she has seen so many women return home to themselves & discover a new way of meeting the world and the curve balls that it throws their way. Her clients have transformed their marriages, overcome depression & anxiety, made peace with their bodies, and discovered an inner source of power & wisdom to create positive change in their lives.
