The Awareness academy introduces

Simplifying Spirituality! 

Your Key to Freedom and Happiness 

Welcome to my website!

I invite you to discover profound timeless wisdom, in a simple to understand and super-easy-to-apply way. My teachings will help you shift out of your comfortable box and fully embrace your God/Source/Creator given magnificence. This magnificence is uncovered through your awakening.

Awakening is the process of remembering we are each created equal, whole, perfect eternal, worthy, and holy, by the one Creator of All That Is that goes by many names, and I affectionately call GSEL and acronym for: God/Source/Energy/Love. Curiosity will lead you to the door of awakening, and your conscious willingness and commitment to know, and live as, Truth, will open it and set you free. I assure you, if I can awaken, anybody can, and together we will co-create Heaven on Earth!

My mission is to awaken humanity to the magnificence within through the power of awareness!

Personal Coaching

Feeling overwhelmed and not sure where to start? My coaching programs are designed to guide you, step by step.


This is a one-hour exploration of your beliefs, to gain a general awareness of where you are on your spiritual journey.


3 one-hour sessions, with the first hour being the Curiosity session, we will use the two additional hour sessions to become aware of the predominant beliefs you hold about yourself, and life in general, to assist you in making sense of why your life is as it is.


This package for you if you are truly committed to experiencing the power of awareness, and the freedom it offers to those who align with the Highest expression of their Authentic Self –Love!

What Others Are Saying

POA changed my life! I was on my spiritual journey for the past two years and had progressed a lot, but this workshop shook me and propelled me to a whole new level of awareness. I left POA a new person…a fully awakened being. 


I left POA feeling free and empowered. I had so many AHA moments! I was pushed to a higher level of consciousness and was amazed at the simplicity of it all. POA was a great way to align my mind, body and soul. It’s UNBELIEVABLE! Yinch

What I learned in the POA weekend was priceless! The information you provided was so simple, yet it would have taken me thousands of books and many other workshops to figure out how truly magnificent I am. In one weekend, you taught me how to live my file fully. Leila

POA was a great and safe way to begin to uncover the blocks that kept my life confusing. I love the way Laina explains how the mind works and makes it so easy to face our fears without judgment. I feel so good about myself and can now acknowledge myself as magnificent! Liz

This beautiful Sunday morning, July 9, 2017, as I sat in stillness, on the top deck of the lake house, I heard: Go jump in the lake! It was The Voice within that Guides me. I know It well. I trust It. Still, my ego’s voice chimed in: seriously? Again, The Voice,...
