Today we’d like to introduce you to Lauren Egle.
Lauren, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
There are three types of people (generalized description), ones that take their sweet time with life to make changes, ones that allow things to be done to/for them, and ones that take life by the big Kahunas. I have almost always been one to follow my gut feeling and jumping in head first. I knew what I wanted, to help people, so I became a registered nurse. During school, I found this Peruvian Shaman who opened my eyes to new things, truths about my self. My heart said listen, so I did.
My heart told me it was time to make two big moves after I finished nursing school and worked a bit, move to Colorado and take yoga teacher training. So I listened. Certified Yoga Teacher, done. After, I knew it was time to take Peruvian shamanism, which was the only healing modality I knew of because I grew up as a born and raised Catholic.
Next, my heart said it was time to make some moves. I became a Peruvian Shaman, opened my own healing business (Earth N Balance), and became a Master Herbalist and a Certified Naturopath. All the while, I worked as a nurse part-time.
Then, the really hard times came. I lost my brother in a car accident. I lost my purpose and my true self. I lacked happiness or a deeper connection. So what did I do? I jumped head first into my own healing once I realized I was lost. I took a two month solo trip to Europe to find myself. I trusted in God/The Universe/Great Spirit to guide me every day, with even where I was going to sleep that night. I made turns when I got a gut feeling and because of that, I was supported. Spirit has always given me the support I need when I ask. Maybe not always how I see it or ask for it, but it is always given with people, places, things, or situations. I finally saw what could happen if I let go of control and follow my heart. Although, easier said than done, right?
Let’s get to the crazy/scary/earth-shattering of my journey that is the very core of how I got to where I am today in business. First I started to go into debt with my business and personal life. Confused as hell because I thought I was doing what spirit was asking me to do. More life lessons, of course.
Then, when my brother died and I lost everything, I had to build myself back up with help piece by piece starting with my very foundation, my childhood and crazy dynamics with my family. It was hard, it took a lot of self work and a lot of learning how to love myself. This also included facing death itself.
Sometime after I found myself/my purpose/my truth again, I laid down to sleep and received a message to do a huaka, peruvian technique that completely destroys whatever you have created, on my business. For with death, comes rebirth. I did that with no thought or time to think. My heart led me all the way. When I woke up the next morning, I didn’t feel the energy of my business. I didn’t feel like I had a business at all. I felt like everything I have created was gone in thin air. Scared the crap out of me and I had no idea where I was going in life after that. I could not stand to do nursing any longer. So, part of me really freaked out. Life throws you twists, right?
So, I continued working on myself, one day at a time. I soon realized that my business was not gone. It was destroyed. Yet it was time to make a new one for the new me. One with a new, stronger, real foundation that was created by my truths and no illusions. My childhood foundation, my no longer serving me the foundation, was made of what I believed I had to be like and what I believed really grounded me and kept me sturdy. Illusions, not my truth. This is what I dug up and replanted.
My dad died somewhat recently and had to go through a similar process of death and losing myself. I have found it is just parts of me dying so that I can rebuild myself in my own truth because my dad affected my life in a big way subconsciously. I began to see this reality before he died and then more lessons came after.
So this is my story. It has ups and downs. Much death of myself and the death of ones I loved. With all of this upheaval, however, has shown me the truth and taught me how to live that truth in the best way possible. I have found so much happiness despite all of the hardships.
As far as my business, I teach lightworkers/healers/seekers how to access their heart and their unique gifts so that they can heal themselves and the world (with akashic record work, ancestral healing, wounded inner child healing, past life work, and more). This is my purpose that I have lost and found multiple times and this is my baby.
Now, I am fully living my dream of traveling and just doing my business, Earth N Balance. I am no longer forcing myself to do things that are no longer serving me such as nursing. My time for that has passed and I am fully happy on this journey. Will lessons continue to come and go for my soul growth? Of course, but I will go head first into those lessons to continue learning and growing.
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?
It has not been a smooth road at all. With my brother dying, death of my business with the Huaka, family issues and struggles, then death of my father I feel as if I have been stripped down or broken into a million pieces multiple times just continue building myself back up into who I am truly am which stripped away parts of me that I am no longer and how I give to others.
We’d love to hear more about your work.

What sets me apart is that the program The LightWorkers Path Program combines multiple tools and your own set of tools which will help you to expand on who you are and grow in ways you may have not felt ever existed.

That your gifts and abilities are not set in this set box but “the sky is the limit” to what you bring to this earth.
What moment in your career do you look back most fondly on?
My proudest moment is when I truly realized that there is nothing stopping me from living my dream, besides my subconscious which is being worked on consistently, and that my dream is in my grasp. That feeling of constantly reaching for this dream but it always being out of my grasp has been one of the hardest things for me and very depleting. I have finally realized and feel that it is now in my grasps. The world is at my fingertips and can continue to create my dreams.
