Embarking on a transformative journey with Laura Mazzotta, a therapist turned energetic and spiritual healer, we delve into her profound insights and projects. From the Holistic Mental Health Project to deciphering Akashic records, Laura shares her wisdom on healing, the benefits of EFT, and the unique experiences awaiting participants in her retreats. MysticMag has the pleasure.
What have your professional beginnings been like?
I started as a therapist, and I’ve been a therapist for 20 years. I did that locally, but then I shifted into the online space during the pandemic. When I got very sick, I shifted over to energetic and spiritual healing because it has a greater level of depth and sustainability for recovery, whether you’re looking at physical health or mental health.
What is the Holistic Mental Health Project?
The Holistic Mental Health Project is a combination of a book and summit. We completed volume 1 in October 2022 and are publishing volume 2 in April 2024. It’s a tool for practitioners to have additional resources outside of the traditional mental health field. It’s also meant for consumers who either haven’t been to therapy, and yet they need help and don’t know where to start, or they’ve been to therapy but haven’t gotten where they wanted to go. These volumes are reference guides for accessing your highest vitality through tried-and-true practices you can implement on your own!
How do you interpret the information you receive through an Akashic records reading? Is it intuitive, symbolic, or more straightforward?
I think it’s a mix, even though it’s primarily intuitive. A big part of how the Akashic records communicate is through symbolism, so you get used to how they converse as you develop a relationship with that space. However, I am claircognizant and clairsentient, so usually when things come through, I can feel or sense how this is being communicated to the person receiving the reading. Most often it is just direct words I’m sharing from guides in the Akashic Records.
What are the benefits of EFT?
EFT Tapping is a brilliant modality because it combines all the layers we need to heal holistically. It combines spiritual, energetic, physical, emotional, and mental aspects. You are shifting and rewiring the subconscious mind and the nervous system by shaking up the energy when you’re tapping. You’re excavating old energy, breaking it up, and reorganizing it into alignment with where you desire to go and who you desire to become.
What can people expect from your retreats?
It depends on the retreat. My big retreat, which is held each May, involves deep excavation of dormant patterns and energy, seeing yourself for all that you are, and embracing all of you. We guide you through a profound transformational experience into a space of elevated consciousness.
My other retreat occurs during Lion’s Gate each August. That one is more serene. It is more about silent meditation, introspection, self-intimacy, and really developing that personal, unique, intimate relationship with Source.
Is there anything else you’d like to add?
I think it’s brilliant for people to open space for themselves, even if it’s just a little bit of time per day. You can talk about which approach or modalities to use, or how you desire to heal, but at the end of the day, it’s very individual. You’re not fully going to know what healing is meant to look like for you unless you open space to intentionally be with yourself and see how you respond. Once you dedicate time to yourself consistently, more space will automatically open to dive into deeper healing practices. Be patient and offer compassion to any thoughts or feelings that arise during this time. You’re rewiring your nervous system; full-on change will not solidify overnight.
