Meet Laura West of Divine Lotus Healing in Cambridge

Today we’d like to introduce you to Laura West.

Laura, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
My journey into the world of holistic healing came about because of my intuitive abilities as a child and young adult.

From an early age, I could see and sense spirit presence. In my 20’s my husband and I traveled overseas and I had some profound experiences in castles and old buildings where I knew the history and brought forward information, without ever knowing it beforehand. Upon returning from those travels, I took spiritual development classes as well as Reiki classes and I trained as an herbalist.

From there I opened Divine Lotus Healing, in 2009. I’ve been seeing clients and teaching classes in the realm of Reiki, Spiritual Counseling and natural wellness through the use of essential oils ever since.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
My business has been on a smooth path since opening the doors to clients and class participants almost a decade ago.

I have done a great deal of personal development in learning to trust the signs of positivity on the path of growing my business. I went from seeing a couple of clients a month at first to now teaching and seeing hundreds of clients on a growing national scale. The hardest part for me has been to continually embrace the “yes” and growth and success that has come naturally at every turn.

As a result, some of my work has branched out into coaching other people who are interested in opening their own small businesses, mostly in the field of natural medicine and energy medicine.

Divine Lotus Healing – what should we know? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
I see clients in my Cambridge office as well as video sessions for folks who live nationally and internationally.

I provide Reiki sessions and teach Reiki classes from the original Japanese perspective. I also hold Spiritual Counseling sessions with clients who are looking for answers to their big questions about life, such as career changes, personal life path development, etc. I teach Psychic and Spiritual Development classes for people who are interested in developing these skills within themselves.

In addition, I help people use natural medicine, through the form of essential oils, to live wellness lifestyles. I teach oil classes, hold wellness consults and help people make decisions on which essential oils and products to use based on their personal wellness goals. I also lead a team of over a dozen other people who are doing the same kind of essential oil education through their small businesses. It’s such rewarding work!

I have a tremendous amount of gratitude for my clients and class participants. I am constantly thanking people and resting in the blessing of the energy that we do together. It feels like a dream come true that I get to call all of this my line of work.

What moment in your career do you look back most fondly on?
While there is not one specific thing that I can say is my proudest moment so far, I am continually amazed and grateful at the way my business has opened and grown over the years.

I have enjoyed networking with other people in the holistic healing industry on a local, national and international level. That has opened so many new doors to my ever growing business and I couldn’t be more happy!
