Practical Magic for Soul Liberation

Looking for Answers, Clarity, Guidance?

You've come to the right place! 1382 web.Lara fingers touching

I KNOW how it is to feel lost, afraid, frustrated, uncertain, seeking meaning and purpose, craving permission to be your authentic self, but not quite knowing where to turn or how to get there. 

I want to help you listen to the wisdom of your soul. I want to help you find joy, validation, a fresh perspective, the answers and meaning you seek.  I want you to know that you're not alone.

Deep down, you know the answers, you just need a little nudge in the direction of your inner wisdom, some encouragement on your journey, and maybe to feel like someone else 'gets it'.

Well brave soul, I get it!  I SO get it!  And I'm here with options! 
You get to choose what makes sense for where you're at.

Here's how I can be of service...

What's in the cards?

Have a specific question?  Need some clarity or validation around a certain situation?  Not looking for a big commitment, but just a hit of higher wisdom to help you recognize the truth, your truth? 

In these readings, I use tarot and other oracle cards as a tool to connect you to the answers and guidance you seek.  The cards help tap into the collective conscious/divine guidance/universal energy flow (whatever you want to call it), and retrieve the message you most need to hear at the given moment.

Here's how it works:

You send me your specific question, and I'll do a 3 card reading and respond in one of three ways, you choose!
All prices are in CDN$ and incl. HST. 
Use the Paypal buttons to purchase your reading, or e-transfer to: 

Option 1 - Email Reading - $23WOA cards2 The reading will be sent to you as a detailed written response via email, which will include a photo of the cards drawn.

Option 2 - Audio Reading - $30
The reading will be recorded as an audio only file (MP3) for you to download and keep.  I will also send a photo of the cards as they were drawn.

Option 3 - Video Reading - $45
The reading will be recorded via video and I'll send you a private YouTube link where you can view it as often as you like, or an MP4 (video file) for you to download.

Curious but don't want to go all in just yet?

One Card Mini Reading via Email only - $10
This is the format I use for Witchy Wednesday (the weekly feature I do on FB, Instagram and now on YouTube) but it applies to you individually, rather than as a general energy reading.  You ask a specific question and I draw one card for guidance.  Alternatively, you can go with the generic question, "What message do I most need to hear right now?"  I'll send you a picture of the card that was drawn and the reading, via email.

More of an independent, DIY kinda soul? 

Me too!  That's why I love e-courses!  I love taking them, and I love creating them and supporting all the amazing brave souls who sign up for them! 

The beauty of online learning is that you can do it from literally anywhere with an internet connection, and on your schedule.  Um, who doesn't love convenience?   Some folks have to get used to the idea, but once people try it, they tend to wonder why they were so resistant in the first place.  Sure, some things lend better to being there in person, but that's just not always possible, and the online classroom I use to offer these classes is super easy to use, flexible, engaging, and appeals to all styles of learners.  It also offers a way to share ideas and experiences with others who are taking the class with you, if you so choose.  So even though you're not literally in the same room as the other participants, there's still a sense of 'we're all in this together.'  And that can be seriously motivating and liberating, when you need it.

I currently offer two online courses, with more to come.  You can get details about each over on the E-Courses page.

For Online Courses Tab
"Your attention to detail of each of us all at different stages of 'fear work' was a great reminder of how individual our journey's are and how well versed you are... I've never done a course online like this and will definitely encourage a few of my friends to take this." - Barb  



One to one guidance and intuitive coaching:

If you're struggling with something like a big life change, important decision, problematic relationship, if you need to get your mojo back, or are longing to get closer to your soul's purpose, this could be just what you need!  


These individual sessions are tailor made to you and whatever issues you're seeking insight on.  

Depending on the situation, I use a variety of  practical magic in the form of  astrology, coaching/counselling techniques, intuitive guidance and card reading, to help you connect to your inner wisdom and find the answers that are true for you. I'll also suggest resources to support you in moving forward.

"Choosing to work with Lara was one of the best life decisions I've ever made! One of her great talents is her empathy, which combined with her ability to listen deeply to the messages that exist beyond words, allows her to read the “big picture.” In doing so, Lara was able to coach me into answering my own questions and led me to a better understanding of my true values and intentions, as opposed to what I thought I "should" be doing. - Neha, CEO, PACE Consulting Inc. |
