Hello Friends,

My name is Laura Irwin

From the outside I looked like I had it all together.
Welcome! Let’s take a trip down memory lane or what I lovingly refer to as my timeline of wake-up calls 🙂

I always knew my course in life would be serving others, I just didn’t know how that would unfold. It seems I had to trip over my own two feet before stumbling upon the best way to activate my skills.

Ready to remedy the world, I received my Bachelor’s education in Psychology. I remember thinking there’s got to be a better way to help others than the typical counseling methods. Then I witnessed the awesome power of hypnosis- I jumped on board and received a Hypnosis certification.

There are many loopholes, or shortcuts if you will, to unlock the potential in others- hypnosis is one of them! But I left it all to work in the Corporate Human Resources field where I fell victim to the world’s goals (not my own) and lived the glory of an over-worked, over-caffeinated, and over-stressed life that fulfilled the prominent definition of “success”.

Eventually (and thank God) I was called to motherhood- something more meaningful than money and hustling. After my first child was born, I had a moment of realization that even though my corporate career was hard work, I was taking the easy way out. I was short-changing myself by living an inauthentic life, not true to myself.

I didn’t want the raise or the higher position. I didn’t even want the money anymore, but while all this was transpiring, I was also getting sick. I just didn’t know it yet.

I quit my job and threw myself into motherhood with a difficult baby, unraveling relationships, and a chaotic home life. On the outside I looked like I had it all together, but my body was all too eager to put me straight. Indeed I got sick. I was diagnosed with the autoimmune illness, Rheumatoid Arthritis. I ate right. I exercised. What went wrong?

I was given firsthand proof that health is not merely what you eat and how many hours you clock in at the gym.

Mind-body-spirit 101. I had no plan in place to prevent harmful stress. I had no self-care regimen. I had no spiritual connection and no idea how my emotions and thoughts all played a part in my body.

When you’re at a low point in life, you’re staring down at a crossroads between disaster or greatness. Choose wisely.

I had to get my act together because I was one foot into disaster already. Ironically, what drove me to help myself was the desire to help others…and how could I help others if I was bed-ridden and ill?

I first unearthed a lot of emotions I had stuffed down. I began to write from my personal experiences for various publications, which must’ve resonated with people as my audience grew and my inbox overflowed. But I was still healing so I was unable to help all the people who wrote into me with their own stories and questions. I tried. And I set myself up to burn out again- dutifully answering everyone’s questions until 2am.

Years later– my formal education was much easier than my life lessons 🙂 I realized I had to help myself first and foremost. I carved out space in my life just for my healing. This led to the creation of Inspired Meditations. The freedom I learned in helping myself gave me the idea to set up a place where others could heal/help themselves as well.….teach a man/woman to fish…

Everyone has the ability to help and/or heal themselves. I’m not a magic worker, and anyone or any program, that claims to be the “answer” is filling you full of b.s. Don’t follow them. Follow your intuition.

I talk a lot about intuition– developing that beautiful inner voice so that your realizations and results are tailor-made for you specifically. No more chasing a version of who you should be or buying in to the toxic idea of success driven by our sick standards- yes, more people are sicker than ever. I wonder why 😉

Where do guided meditations fit into all this? It’s where my healing began. I learned how meditation transforms lives from health and wellbeing to productivity and purpose. So many doors have opened for me and so many solutions have presdneted themselves to me since beginning a meditation practice. Currently I’m learning toward an Energy Healing certification!

A meditation practice in general helps you clear the noise and distraction that keeps you from hearing your intuitive, higher self; the voice that knows your purpose, helps you heal, intuitively knows what foods and even friends are best for you! But the standard version of meditation can be a little slow-going. If you’re looking for results or need to catch a break sooner than later, guided meditations, affirmation work, and hypnosis (all offered on this site) are deep, powerful, and speedy tools!

Before I began a traditional meditation practice, I only used guided meditations (and hypnosis). I noticed changes pretty quick and that gave me more confidence, direction, and personal power to forge on! Sometimes you just need a glimmer of hope.

I’m so passionate about helping others help themselves! Sustainable self-help! Whether your journey begins here or you’re lost and miraculously found yourself here, rest assured you are well on your way to awakening your best self.
