Lauren: Thank you so much for having me I am so freakin excited for this conversation I bet we’re gonna go in all kinds of different directions and I am here for every one of them.
Regina: I’m so excited to have you here so you and I have been in each other’s zones for a while and recently Lauren and I had the chance to connect and I love the internet and zoom and Instagram because we got to just connect it’s like meeting an old friend I love it. I’m excited to dive into all the juiciness. So something I love that you and I got right into when we first met and connected is that we’ve been on a sort of similar journey is like through into alignment. And in that journey we have gone on journeys with plant medicine, we’ve gone on journeys with our sexuality we’ve gone on journeys, we’re both in entrepreneurship. Before we get into the juicy I have kind of a random question. How were you raised in regards to your sexuality?
Lauren: Oooh great question. I don’t think I’ve ever been asked this on a podcast or shared this really and not that I’m like getting ready to share something insane or anything like that. I would say like pretty normal but what is normal right? So my dad worked a lot when I was growing up and he’s a retired police officer and for a lot of my life, he would work nights so I wouldn’t see him a ton and so he was less present. Like, a lot of the time. Not to say that he wasn’t involved by any means but growing up I had a very close relationship with my mom and to paint a picture, my mom is like such a badass independent super freakin smart driven entrepreneurial like all of that and we would have like conversations about sex and our bodies. I have siblings and stuff so you know conversations about that kind of stuff from a pretty early age and helping us to understand things and just have a good foundation there. Getting me like books that are age-appropriate of course but like books to read with like short stories that like made sense to where like you know I was when I was growing up and stuff. I felt very supported and was in a no-judgment zone. I felt like I could talk to my mom about a lot of that kind of stuff and felt very knowledgeable like I knew a lot about sex and how the body works and all that kind of stuff and being responsible with it as well. To give you a little example my dad was married before my mom and I have two older half-siblings My sister is 14 years older than me and my brother is 10 years older than me and then I have a younger brother and he and I have the same parents. But I don’t have all the facts exactly right for this most likely but I’m pretty sure my mom through my sister when she was in high school or an older teenager or something like that. I had a pleasure party where, you know it’s like “Oh look, these are sex toys.” that’s how my mom is. Like for Christmas and stuff, and not from like a super young age or anything like this. It was very age-appropriate and everything but my mom would get me and my brother and even my cousins’ a box of frickin condoms from Costco and put it in our stockings for Christmas. That’s my mom. It’s interesting because I felt safe to talk about that kind of stuff and at the same time, (we’ll go deep right now) I lost my virginity to rape when I was 16 years old and did not feel safe to talk to anybody about it let alone like my mom, parents, whatever and I didn’t even process that, or acknowledge it until I was like 32 years old. So in my mind, we are tucking that away and we are burying it and we’re not even gonna cry about it we’re gonna act like it never happened for 15 years. But I think the thing for me why I didn’t feel safe talking to my mom about that was because I put myself in a situation that wasn’t the smartest. I was blackout drunk and so I was like “Oh no, I’ll get in trouble, this was my fault.” it wasn’t necessarily what had happened. I felt scared to share it. It was more of the thought that “oh I broke the rules and I lied to my parents about where I was going to be that night and that kind of stuff.” I feel like I had a very healthy and normal and open childhood with regard to that kind of stuff. To the point where like I didn’t do like in high school or junior high or whenever you do it like I didn’t do the sex ed because my mom said, we’re good. So it’s pointless.
Regina: So home was a safe space for sexuality, but then you have that experience when you’re 16 years old. What does your relationship with sex become like after that experience?
Lauren: Great question. Um, I have always gotten a lot of attention for how I look. And you know positive attention, unwanted attention, negative attention, and that is a big part of where my past overachiever ness workaholic ness perfectionist NIST comes from because it’s like, No, I’m more than just what I look like. I’m not just pretty, I’m fucking smart too and I am really good at sports, and I’m in every club, and all this kind of stuff and I can do all the things right? I would get consistently underestimated and still sometimes do because of how I look, and so, I will say as well, my mom is a beautiful woman and similarly got a lot of attention for her looks and probably did the same kinds of things that I did. Like, no I’m not just attractive or whatever it is and so she would almost not downplay books but she’d remind you. “oh well, you had nothing to do with that it’s just your gene sort of thing.” and so it’s almost like she carried some shame around it growing up and so then when that happened that sexual assault, I took on more shame around my sexual energy, my sexual expression, how I look, and how I appear, and I didn’t necessarily try and change my appearance or anything but I had always been very selective about who I dated or who I liked. I wasn’t a big boyfriend girl. So that incident made me even more picky and even more selective, but it also made me not trust men a lot, especially when I would get complimented. So I kind of shut down my ability to receive genuine compliments. I would almost assume men are lying in a certain sense, like if they were interested in me. And so after that incident, I started to learn how to use my looks much more manipulatively and my sexual energy and power much more manipulatively. I would be like, “Oh let’s see if I can get that guy to like me.” I probably won’t be interested but let’s do it. Let’s do what I can do with this. I’m very good at directing my energy and that kind of stuff and I like to say, learn how to use it for Good and Evil.
It wasn’t until I went through my first big real heartbreak that I kind of acknowledged that. I don’t think you know, but I believe that everything happens for a reason and that’s the incident in my life that I can say I felt most like a victim. I’ve done a lot of work around it and stuff like that to be able to see why did I bring this into my life. Not blame, nothing like that. But what did this do for me? And so that was such a powerful thing for me to dig into more and understand.
Regina: So after that, what have you done and what are you doing to heal your relationship with the masculine?
Lauren: So much of it has been in the last two years honestly. So I got married when I was 29 in 2015 two to an incredible man and it was the best relationship he took amazing care of me, he was an incredible human and we’ve probably never should have gotten married. I say this now having gone through a divorce in 2020. So much of my healing and all of that became more obvious and became more necessary as I was navigating my marriage and as my ex-husband and I were dealing with a lot of like stuff, and issues and things weren’t working. Any relationship is a two-way street, right? I had my stuff, he had his stuff and in seeing how our relationship went, that’s how I really saw that these were kind of like issues or wounds or traumas for me that I needed to deal with because I was so stuck in my masculine and I felt like my divine Feminine was wrong. Like oh, those feminine qualities the softness, yuck. Vulnerability? No. I never would cry like all this kind of stuff. I was so stuck in my masculine and attracted a partner who was very in his feminine. I occupied the masculine space in our relationship and so he adapted to me and at that moment when we met, I didn’t even frickin know what masculine and feminine energy was like. I don’t know what this shit is, and so as I started to do more healing and personal development and learning these things because I was getting to a point where I was going non-stop, there was never enough time in the day, too busy. I’m like what the fuck? Because when I was at my old job I could blame my boss right? And the company and whatever there’s just so much work I have to do. When I went and started my own business and I was still working that way. I was like, “Oh, I’m the boss now and I’m the problem.”
So I started to get into more personal development understanding the divine masculine and feminine and strengthening my own divine feminine and feeling safe in that. And as I leaned more into my feminine, felt the lack of the strong masculine energy in my partnership. So that ultimately was kind of the start of that and feeling safe in the masculine safe in my own feminine. Really, over the last couple of years as we were kind of still working on things, I dove into that more and did the work that I needed to do to heal my sexual assault trauma and all that kind of stuff. But then really the divorce was the most amicable, respectful, stress-free, zero-drama divorce I could have ever hoped for. Divorce fucking sucks still, no matter how chill it is. And so that was like a big catalyst for me and then since becoming single I’ve been single now for a little over a year at this point. So that launched me into so much more exploration expression and all of that and because for me, when I started feeling there were “issues in our relationship,” it was because it was showing up a lot in our sex life. And it’s not just the sex, right? It’s now so much more. There’s a root cause to that. So once I when I became single, I was like, alright, we are going to explore a lot and learn more about myself and everything and you know, all of that. So the past year and a half, a lot more exploration of my own sexuality, my own sexual expression, all of that.
Regina: It’s interesting. I’ve had a similar journey as you were, I have been very in my masculine my whole life. And every partner I’ve had has been the polarities in their feminine, much more. And my most recent partnership that ended, we were together for five years. And I was really stepping into my feminine and having a spiritual awakening. And I was realizing that I was unsupported. Just because the energetic dynamic has shifted. Greatly. But it makes sense as you say that the divorce, obviously, it’s a hard thing. But it was an easy divorce in that nothing like bad or wrong happened, right? It was an energetic shift. You changed you were growing in a different way.
Lauren: Yeah we didn’t do a good job of growing together. And he and I have talked about, we probably shouldn’t have even gotten married. And even in saying that we had a beautiful marriage in so many ways. Like, I think the world of him, you know, and so like, I don’t regret it. On one hand, I’m like, oh, now I’m like, single and I’m 34 and all this I’ll be 34 but really, only 35 in less than a month yeah exactly a month. So I’m like yeah like oh now I feel like I’m behind and all that kind of stuff but, I’m so aligned and obsessed with who I am and if I needed that experience to become this version of me and same for him, I know it’s been such a catalyst for growth for him and if that’s what we needed to be these evolved versions of ourselves.
Regina: What is it like being this version of Lauren like you are feeling so aligned, you’re feeling so much more balanced in your polarities? What is it like stepping into sexual expression, this new phase of sexual expression at 34
Lauren: It was really interesting re-entering the dating world after being in a relationship for ten years five of those years married, and having the world shut down and like not being able to meet people out in the wild in real life, and then also being like, well I just like would go to the gym and work and stuff. So where would I meet people anyway? But then also and going into apps. So I had my first dating app experience and I dabbled in them here and there from time to time and had some great connections through apps as well but, what is it like for me? So 2020 for me so we decided we were splitting up the end of April we still so we own our house together? So we had like it was crazy we bought a house moved in the week of Christmas 2019 okay four months later decided we’re splitting up. We didn’t have a bad time living together on lockdown or anything like we had a great time. It just brought those issues to the surface more. So he was living in the house while figuring out another place to live until July 1. So July 1, like I’m a single woman now, we had done therapy and all the things and I just felt like I was ready to date but in 2020. So that six months left of 2020, I was not very clear on not wanting a relationship I did not want to be accountable to anybody but myself I didn’t want to feel attached to anybody and not in an irresponsible or unintentional way. Radical honesty is one of my core values. Coming out of my marriage and to making sure I was dating really intentionally and consciously and stuff like that, I was also dating for fun, for now, sort of thing. I’m like, I’m definitely won’t marry you but I’m having a great time getting to know you right now. And that was okay for me. Then this year now 2021 I had a very clear shift like at the change of the year where I’m like, okay, I am still like yes, conscious, intentional connections. Not necessarily want to jump into something per se but I’m like okay, I’ve done the healing that I needed. I had the six months seven months or feeling of being super detached and only worrying about myself with some really strong connections and stuff like that but I ultimately knew “Oh, I don’t want to be exclusive with anybody.” so that’s you know, a few of those ended because I was like, Oh no, I really care about you and I like you and this is super fun. The trump card is I don’t want to be exclusive so if you do, it’s done.
So this year I’m ready for the real thing. I’m ready for the fucking King and all of that. And not in this place of scarcity and energy of where are they when is he like a little you know, all that stuff. So but now, there’s no more “you’re fun for now” dating. It’s like, I’m super clear on what I’m looking for, and the energy that I want to feel and, and everything like that. And so, the intention is there. The clarity is there and I’m like, allowing God the universe to you know, handle it the way that it’s supposed to happen.
Regina: Totally. Stepping into this New Year of dating and experiencing new men, one of the things you said about your marriage was issues would come up in your sex life. Now in this new phase of dating has your sexual expression changed?
Lauren: Yes. And it’s funny because in my sex life with my ex we would do freaky shit and we would have sex regularly and we were very affectionate so I think the most we ever went without having sex is like two weeks. So it’s not like we’re “Oh this isn’t working so…” it’s the energy. The energy behind it felt off which was so bizarre because it was wild looking back at that younger version of me.
I think in my past relationships, because of my issues with my own shame and my issues and my unresolved trauma with my own sexual sexuality, I didn’t realize how important that was to me in a relationship. And so while my ex and I would be like yes, solid a minus b plus sex life right? You can’t have every single thing. You can’t have it all. But then with our relationship progress, I’m like “oh no, but this is actually one of the things that I have to have on my list.” There are other things that can fall off of it but I have to have a very strong fulfilling sexual connection with my partner. I have to. So my sexual expression in this newer version of me, I dove a lot more into kink and BDSM which I was always a little more deviant and stuff like that but have done a ton of research around that and like market research as well. And love that. So exploring new things in that space like less “vanilla”, dating different kinds of people than my type per se. And really allowing my energy to guide me, and listening to my gut. I’m a sacral authority generator for those who understand human design and stuff so when I’m aligned and clear, over the past year and a half I’ve become more than ever in my life. So when I’m aligned and clear, my gut is 110% accurate and within an instant. So I can within five minutes on FaceTime with somebody, I’d know if I’d actually want to see you in person sort of thing. Exploring different energies, different humans and stuff like that, trying new things like I said, diving into BDSM and kink a lot more and I think one of the big things too was being okay talking about this stuff. Because this isn’t what I do in my business. I’m not like a sexuality coach or anything like that. But as I’ve healed my own stuff, and gotten more aligned there and eliminated my shame around my sexuality and sexual expression and like dove deeper into sexual expression and fulfillment and everything like that. This unleashes a buck ton of magic and I truly believe when you’re cleared of your shame and trauma around your sexuality and when you are expressing yourself sexually and fulfilled, you become a more powerful manifester, you are going to show up more magnetically in the world and more confident. All of that I firmly believe it. So it’s been really cool to see how owning my sexuality and sexual expression and everything like that had results and given me pretty neat effects in other areas of my life.
Regina: I want to dive into the connection because I know there’s a clear connection in this for you between working through and healing your shame. Which has led to you diving into exploring BDSM and kink, which has led to fucking epic things in your life and in your business.
I think, which I know a lot of listeners will be curious about because so many women have such deep shame around their sexuality for varying different types of reasons. What type of work have you done to help to heal that shame?
Lauren: A few years ago I went into aa really intensive leadership training that was a lot around emotional intelligence. And that’s when I finally acknowledged my sexual assault. So intense, experiential therapy almost. And then more when I actually was going through therapy. I went through therapy in 2019, because I was dealing with some depression, and we were having issues in our relationship. And so for me, it was healing the mother wound as well. So healing my relationship with my mom, like on my end more, which is still a work in progress. And then when my ex and I were close to deciding we were going to split up, we started doing couples therapy, within a week of couples therapy, we’re like, Oh, this isn’t therapy to fix things or stay together, this is therapy to come out of our relationship in a beautiful way, or as beautiful as possible. So therapy was incredibly helpful and a lot of inner child work, a lot of healing childhood wounds work for sure. Like, you know, masturbation, sex magic, healing type stuff. So where you essentially masturbate, while you self pleasure in a safe lovely environment setting and you’re visualizing or doing manifestations or mantras or to remind your body that it’s safe. And so because I had physical trauma to my body that I hadn’t resolved for 17 years there needed to be some work up there. So some of that kind of healing was really helpful. And then listening to my body more. Like, if there was something I wanted to explore, explore it. And there’s something that was a no, then it’s a no. Being open to trying, exploring new things, and seeing what I like, maybe it’s not essential. But it was cool to try.
Regina: Yeah. So the thing I love about the work that you’ve done too is that you’ve done the human, the mind, the bodywork, but then you’ve also done the spiritual subconscious level work to heal that deep wound. That’s so powerful.
Lauren: And, and I used to think because even when in my relationship with my ex-husband, part of why I thought, oh well if the sex is a b plus, that’s fine, right? I can’t have everything and He’s incredible. And everything else checks off on the list. So it’s fine. But also because I was okay letting that go. Because I felt like there was something wrong with me for so long from my own sexual assault, and I used to have a story too that was, oh, most people who are freaky and deviant sexually, they thought they were abused in some way, or they were assaulted in some way or they have some big trauma in their past and that’s why they’re deviant which is not the case always. I have a lot of people I know who have a shared trauma in that, but that’s just my story, right? And so I felt like I was fucked up in a lot of ways because of the things that had happened to me or how I viewed myself growing up and everything and so it’s been fun to clear out the shame and heal the trauma. Real talk, I’m now an even bigger freak but I don’t carry shame with it I like to own it and it’s amazing,
Regina: Well because there’s so much stigma around it there’s so much stigma around exploring those different parts of your sexuality. So I think a lot of people when you say BDSM or when you talk about kink when you use those words they’re like, I don’t say that. We don’t talk about that right? But I think that part of the scandal with those words is that people don’t really understand what they mean and how we participate in them. So will you explain from your understanding at a high level what those things mean to you and for you?
Lauren: Yeah, absolutely. So with that, I also want to say our mainstream understanding of BDSM and kink is like ugh, 50 Shades of Grey which is so terrible and I only watched it last year actually as I was diving more into this stuff because I was like, Okay, let’s see how they’re showing this. Let me see how accurate slash inaccurate This is, and it’s ridiculous. It is ridiculous. Like it’s such a poor portrayal. Right? So BDSM stands for bondage, discipline dominance, like that can be a similar thing but bondage dominance submission, and sadism and Mazza masochism right so it’s and BDSM for me has a lot to do with and for many people power dynamics, yeah but it’s but the important thing is agreed upon consensual power dynamics and playing with power dynamics so I have a big appetite and a broad appetite so I like vanilla, I like it kinky, I like it for whatever right it doesn’t have to always be like a BDSM scene if you will though. There are people who are like oh, I only like to have sex this way right? So BDSM is a lot about playing with power dynamics. so for me as a very alpha woman CEO you know runs a successful company like fucking go-getter, right? Like yes, my default used to be very much in my masculine I enjoy playing in the subspace so then the submission space I enjoy being dominated not always like I would call myself a switch but mostly sub so sometimes I like to flip that dynamic thing about it, and so like and I also personally enjoy some pain with Mike inflicted on me and stuff like that. So the reason why or why you’re able to play in these power dynamics and push these boundaries whether it’s emotionally physically whatever and go there, go to these extremes if you will, is because you’re in such a safe container because there is so much trust there because you’ve had the big conversations you know what each other’s yeses and no’s are, and you also establish safe words and if something comes up in the moment and it’s maybe you know how to communicate and stuff, so to me it’s such a beautiful way to explore your own expression, your own limits, get to know yourself better. And it’s an amazing practice in communication and connection with somebody. And so I love when I’m used to making a lot of decisions and being in that power place and I enjoy to be in the subspace with most of the time again, not always but a lot of the time and funny enough the hat that I’m wearing right now, which you guys can’t see because it’s just audio but my hat says daddy on it. And yes, I wear this shit to the gym.
Regina: Well, it’s funny too, that you’re wearing a daddy hat because I’m like you, I’m always in control, I’m the boss. But when it comes to like, the sexual space, like, I want a daddy, I want to be submissive, I want somebody to take over. This year was my first year exploring this space, and having conversations, and setting the boundaries. And like calling someone daddy and like really liking it, you know, my former self would have been like, Ewww, what are you doing?
Lauren: Yep. Exactly. And the thing with it for me is when I think of my partner that I am calling in like, that King that’s on his way in here. It’s a man who’s more of an alpha than me. I’m not planning on Oh, just make all the decisions. And you know, that’s that. Nah, there’s a lot of fire over here on this end. And I’m still going to be a powerful independent woman. But you need to be so in your alpha and your divine masculine that you can be a leader to me. That’s what I want. And so even in the sexual dynamic, with the dominant, submissive dynamic, the daddy-baby girl dynamic, that’s the thing. If you can’t hold your space and command your divine masculine, my divine feminine is not going to relax in your energy.
Regina: So interesting. Thinking about the big, dynamic math divine masculine, for so many years. And I don’t know if you have had this experience, but I felt like my bigness had to be dimmed a little bit to be with a man, right? Like oh, I’m so big, I don’t know if somebody can hold this energy. And then all of a sudden, this year, I was like, wait a minute. No, you’re just with the wrong people.
Lauren: And that’s how I felt with my ex and I whenever I say stuff that makes it sound bad, I’m like, he’s an incredible man. I still love him so much, but it’s like a very different kind of love now and so much respect for him. So I never want it to sound like I’m talking bad about him or anything, but in our relationship, I didn’t feel like I could spread my wings fully. I didn’t feel he could handle it. And the times when I felt most in my feminine was when I was dealing with depression, and I felt fucking not myself. So yeah, I didn’t feel like I could be as big as I knew I was supposed to be and I’m not even like there yet. But I didn’t feel like I could expand, like, he could hold space for my expansion.
Regina: Totally, totally. I have felt like that in every relationship. And now it’s like, No, I’m stepping into the biggest fullest version of myself, and the person that is going to be there will be able to hold that energetic container in its fullness.
One of the things I was thinking about with kink and with BDSM you know because people are so conditioned to seeing things like 50 Shades of Grey. They think that to step into that means I have to go from zero to 1,000%. And I think most of us it’s an incremental experience where we try new things and then we try more things. Has that been your experience?
Lauren: Yeah, I mean, I would say not super regularly, but like, you know, incorporating some bondage like handcuffs or blindfolded or being tied up a little bit. Maybe some spanking right, maybe a little high rolling, using toys, you know, that’s like putting your toes in the water and stuff like that. I’ve had situations where I’m literally hogtied on a table being electrocuted. And you don’t have to jump right into that. I blacked out because I had my neck restrained too tight. I passed out. I needed to take a break. And that situation was like I couldn’t say the safe word cuz I start passing out so fast, thankfully my partner that I was with was so in tune with me, and the whole time he was calling me the worst names and I’m getting slapped and like spit on and shit like that, (good lord these conversations) but like you know it’s a very intense and crazy and degrading. But he’s so connected to me and so attentive to me and taking such good care of me in that space that as soon as I started to blackout I couldn’t move my arms because they were tied behind my back and attached to my ankles. My throat, I had a collar on that was attached to the ceiling and it got pulled and I arched back so far that I basically was like a sleeper hold. I passed out immediately and so I couldn’t speak, I couldn’t move, so I think I tapped him or maybe got some word out or something and immediately He’s like, holy shit, undoes it he’s like okay, we need to take a breather to let me get you some water. Let’s take a breath. But you don’t need to just jump right into that.
Regina: Oh my god. But so these different types of sexual experiences are so energetically expansive like yes they expand you so much more than you ever thought possible as a human. Where have you seen it manifest in beautiful ways in your life?
Lauren: I mean so much of it for me like in those types of settings right like with this you know a particular person well and just in general in more like dominant types of scenes or experiences it is such an exercise of surrender and trust. And in many ways surrender and trust with another human, surrendering to another human, surrendering and trusting myself and being very in tune with myself right something maybe a yes and then at the moment it can start feeling like a no and so being very in tune with your body and like speaking up. If it’s like oh actually this is too intense for me right now, let’s slow down. So using your voice, speaking up, asking for what you want, and being clear on what you don’t want and I think those are things that show up all over. In negotiating business deals, I’m clear on my boundaries and how I show up on social media and feeling unapologetically myself and feeling confident being super unfiltered and showing all the sides of me, that has been strengthened so much and strengthening that divine feminine and the Divine Feminine isn’t always soft, she can have a lot of fuckin fire, like Mother of Dragons energy and so really strengthening the divine feminine and trusting the Divine Feminine so much more and yeah, and I think so much too is like, learning my own body. not just in a sexual capacity but in general, trusting my intuition and my gut and using my voice. If you have a hard time speaking up in the bedroom you’re going to probably also have a hard time speaking your mind and speaking up like not in the bedroom
Regina: I feel the same way. With that expansion has come the ability to communicate even better in everyday life in business, and that because of the skills and the things that are happening, it’s leading to more money. It’s leading to more business. Yes. Leading to so much abundance.
Lauren: Yes, absolutely. Because attracting abundance is about surrender, it is about receiving. The Divine Feminine is about receiving so the more we are able to receive and that doesn’t mean like oh women, you should always be submissive in sex, no, that doesn’t that’s not what it means at all. But the better we are able to receive even if that’s receiving genuine compliments, right? Receiving somebody paying for your coffee… it is like, the better we’re able to receive, the more we’re able to receive abundance from the universe as well.
Regina: Totally. Totally it’s been the same for me I’ve had this such similar lessons. I love the connections between sex and money. It makes me so happy.
Lauren: Because your Sacral Chakra, which is in the womb area, right? Sacral Chakra that’s where the sexual energy comes from your life force energy and that’s also where a lot of the creative energy comes from and the abundance. It’s so connected to that.
Regina: So true. I’ve done so much Sacral Chakra work over the past two years. Yeah, so much womb healing. Have you ever done Yoni steaming? I have not actually you’d be so into it. So into it. Yeah, it’s a vagina facial but my practitioner I go to like she literally walks you through this like beautiful guided meditation and you visualize yourself inside your cervix like it’s like a whole thing.
Lauren: Yeah. Oh very cool. I’ll have to try that. Yeah.
Regina: Oh my gosh, thank you so much for just showing up and sharing so beautifully and vulnerably like you did today. The funny thing is everybody, Lauren is like a PR fucking maven, but the thing I love and why I wanted her on all the things podcast is because you’re such a beautiful embodiment of being whoever the fuck you are and showing up the way that you want to and I love that thank you so much.
Lauren: Absolutely This was so much fun and we’ll have to do a part two or maybe we’ll talk about this on my show medicine and like all the things shit. We could go for like three more hours
Regina: We had so much more to talk about. Will you please pimp yourself out and let everyone know where to find you?
Lauren: Absolutely y’all you can find me everywhere online @laurensalaun. So that’s the best way to get connected with me.
