Welcome to Rocking Your Life! I’m Lara Palafox, the creator of Rocking Your Life. This is the site for those sincerely wanting personal growth and a better life according to their own needs. We do not have to all fit the same mold or follow the same path. We are gloriously unique! What we have in common is the desire to have a happy, fulfilling life.
Ever since I was a small child, I have loved to help others achieve what they wanted and guided them to self-discovery and insight. My “Aha” moment was in Grade 7 when I overheard some students discussing an issue. One of them said “I really don’t know. Go talk to Lara, she’ll help you!” I was very touched. Perhaps the fact that I’d been to 9 schools by that time, and been through some tough times with family, helped give me perspective and insight that I could use to help others.
Another unforgettable experience that felt like a nudge towards my calling was when I happened to be walking along a street and gave a fairly large donation to a non-profit organization for Homeless Youth. The man holding the donation box was surprised and said “Wow. thank you for your generosity!” I replied, “No, thank you for what you do. Your organization helped me when I was a homeless youth.” He looked me up and down then said “You look as if you’ve done well. Would you come and talk to our group?” I was caught off guard and said that I might sometime in the future. Yet, I never did. At the time, I was too embarrassed and wanted to keep the past in the past. Later, I realized that my past had a purpose – and that was to bring insight, guidance, love, and joy to others.
Although I have studied Psychology, Counseling, Human Development, Comparative Religion, and Philosophy, I went into ESL (English as a Second Language) teaching. I have traveled to and lived in, different countries, all the while immersing myself in new cultures and diverse experiences. This has enabled me to communicate in a deeper and more understanding way with people from all walks of life.
It is my passion to help others find their joy and live a better life. Since my counseling and writing have helped many people, I’ve decided it’s time to reach out to others who might benefit, hence the creation of Rocking Your Life!
I will help guide you to discover:
- Who you truly are and your purpose in this life
- How to tune into your intuition and make better choices as you listen to your “gut” and become aware of signs that are always around
- An awareness of the mechanisms of life, the world, and universal laws to help you grow and become a more successful, happy human
- How to make changes to achieve your desired goals in life, in areas of Health, Habits, Relationships, Self-Esteem, Self-Confidence, Career, Psychology, and more…
So, here I am! And I’m excited to help you be the conscious captain of your ship as you sail along your journey in this world…and Rock Your Life!
