I want to know you.
What brings you joy?
What lights you up?
What gets you going everyday?
Now, when was the last time you actually did the things that make you feel this way?
Not just, oh I enjoy these things and they’re really nice to think about-but really apply them and do them?
Hello and welcome!
I’m Lauren Kretzmer Gall aka Lauren KG and I am here to help you get out of you head and connect with your heart to start living a life that allows you to achieve your desires/goals/dreams without sacrificing what matters most.
As an entrepreneur, therapist, licensed social worker and life and leadership coach, I discovered that my purpose and what “lights me up” is by supporting ambitious, dream leading women like you to recognize that you can live the life you desire most without burning out in the process.
Does any of this sound familiar to you?
You feel stuck in your head and stop yourself from taking chances?
You find yourself in a battle of wanting to do for yourself but having to cater to other “more important” responsibilities first?
You find yourself putting yourself in 2nd, 3rd or last place?
You forget what it feels like to take care of yourself first, or if you do, find yourself battling sneaky little voices saying it’s selfish?
You love deeply, passionately and also have a wealth of knowledge you want to share with the world?
And the biggest one:
You’ve had an idea, a plan, a purpose hidden inside of you that you cannot shake but the idea of letting it out is terrifying so you put it back to the furthest reaches of your mind?
What would it even mean to get out of your head and start leading with your heart?
It would mean you start living a life without the boundaries, restrictions, fears and other negative self talk you currently are.
It would mean freedom.
What do you want?
You say yes when you want to say yes and no when you want to say no.
You want to take a month long vacation, or random days off throughout the year just because you want to.
You want to get out all of your knowledge to others to see others thrive the way you know they can.
You want to be healthy and sane.
You want abundance and freedom.
You want the ultimate golden egg: choice.
What happens when you let go of the choices that do not serve you to get what you want, and start living the choices that let you live the life you do want?
That’s where I come in
Learn to live beyond the restrictions you’ve put on yourself to see what lives beyond the bounds.
Lead with you heart, not your head:
Our minds give us lots of good advice from time to time. It also hold a lot of false stories and fears. This is where you learn how to lead with your heart and know when to let your mind chime in that works for you, not against you.
Learn how to hear your intuition loud and clear:
There is a lot to be said of the power of ancient wisdom with how mother earth provides and the non physical realm.
Learn how to tap into that power in combination of the physical realm to reap the benefits of both.
There are stories circling in your head that have built from many years of what we have been thought to believe or have created as what we think to be true.
Now it’s time to break those down and create the new beliefs that come with the new paths you are creating.
Live with purpose:
You have a purpose in you right now. You’ve been thinking about it, ruminating over it, living with it and haven’t been able to let it out to the world, until now.
This is where we get to the core of your “why” you want to let your purpose out now and how to make it sustainable.
If you are an ambitious achieving woman full of untapped ideas that’s ready to let go, get out of her head and thrive, then you are in the right place at the right time.
(But you knew this already, didn’t you?)
So who am I?
I am a mommy
I am a wife
I am a business owner
I am a therapist
I am a licensed social worker
I am the juggler of making the schedules work
I am the maker of cookies and the occasional dinner
I am a reader
I am a writer
I am a friend
I am a regular person who put time, effort, dedication and some tears mixed in there to find a connection between the mind and the soul (science and spirit) to live a life I desired and that I absolutely love.
*Think of me as the person standing next to you with my hand out if you need it or a gentle push from behind when you’re not sure where to go next*
Some fun facts
The seed of this business started when my brother and I sat at one of his many doctors appointments, several years ago, and he looked at me and asked me why I wasn’t out there doing what I do best…making people feel seen and heard?
It was a great question and now here I am, doing what I do best.
I learned hard ways and some easy ways of what actually clicks and how to get the mind and soul to start working together. The best part about it is that you do not need to be a spiritual guru or meditate hours a day or even do yoga if you don’t want to. In fact, you can adapt the principals of this connection in simple, easy-to-understand ways.
I’ve been to yoga and mindfulness retreats (one with a surprise juice cleanse for the entire weekend), to sitting in a meditative state for hours, to sky diving, rock climbing and jumping off the deep end-literally. I have worked in several different worlds from the fast-paced NYC corporate world, to walking dogs just to make a buck during college. I’ve read over 100 books in the religious/spiritual world and have done the work on a journey from having a Christian minister grandfather on one side and Italian Catholic Grandparents on the other and fought hard against the ingrained-fear-based spiritual path I grew up on.
I watched drugs and alcohol destroy families, had to walk around the block if I saw the cops outside my house before going in, lived with family friends with my dog because I had nowhere else to go to now living a life I love, desire, crave and is the complete opposite of the instilled beliefs that were put upon me as a child and teenager.
When wanting to live your life your way is as true to you as it is to me, it’s time to make the connection.
You never know where you’re going to go, but you always know where you’ve already been.
Connect With Me
If you feel that you have connected with my story, insight, knowledge or continued pursuit to aways learn, adapt and improve, please do something about it. My communications will always vary from deep emotional stirring content, to light and sometimes (hopefully) funny.
Testing Your Boundaries
Boundaries set in place is a good thing, but only when they’re about boundaries regarding things outside of yourself.
To live your life your way, we have to test your boundaries. What boundaries have you built up over the years that created a disconnect between your mind and soul?
Where are there any blocks around living from your heart that stop you from reaching new heights?
I am passionate about getting to the bottom of mysteries, especially that of the mind. I actually had plans to be a criminologist before my brother made me rethink my entire career.
We build our lives on beliefs that we don’t always know we have or where they even came from. Before you can make any deep connections, you have to know where the beliefs around it came from.
We hold beliefs around more things than you probably realize. Did you know that you’re supposed to cut your birthday cake first but you cannot take the knife out, someone else has to otherwise it’s bad luck for the rest of the year? No, it’s not true, but we still do this because you know, you never know? There are deeper beliefs controlling decisions you are making.
Let’s find out what they are.
Live With Purpose
Passion is fast and furious. It burns like a fire. Then the fire eventually runs out. All that’s left is the ash and the dust to clean up.
Purpose is like a lotus. It can grow even in the darkest of spaces, coming through muck with persistence and diligence for there is nothing that can stop it from emerging beautifully each morning. It can even live without water for thousands of years. Too often we are wrought with making decisions with no purpose and with the language of should, have to, need to with none if it being I want to, or this brings me joy to.
Learn to live your life with purpose. With a sense of, nothing will stop me now that I know exactly where my heart and mind want to be and how I want to feel.
