After 30 years as a professional photographer, Lāhela’s life path took a dramatic turn. Through a series of events that were triggered by the housing crash in 2008 (i.e. closing her photography business, filing for bankruptcy, and losing her home to foreclosure) her kuleana (purpose, role, responsibility) was rebirthed. Losing everything and starting all over at the age of 51 awakened her latent passions of being of service and the spiritual healing arts.
In 2010, she was inducted as a Kahu in the Kapu Ao Ka Lani Hālau, founded by Kumu Karen Leialoha Carroll. This on the job training taught her about all forms of energy and utilizing Hoʻoponopono to cleanse and restore balance and harmony in peoples homes, personal lives, and businesses. Simultaneously, Lāhela became certified in Quantum Healing Hypno Therapy, Lomilomi, Reiki, and Feng Shui: cleansing and healing modalities that assist us in making essential life course corrections. The integration of these modalities shed light upon a common issue – man’s unknowing separation from Divine Source. Her mission is to assist people everywhere to take back their power, strengthen their direct connection to Divine Source, heal themselves, and realize their unlimited potential.
