What I love most about Lou is that she has her own special way of doing things. Her tarotscopes: a fusion of tarot and astrology. Her art: a combination of beauty and magical ponderings. Her heart: caught between London, LA, the countryside and a cosmic dream world that is her imagination. Striking and introverted. Stubborn and gentle. Strong and sensitive. Precise and caring. Confident and humble. She is a beautiful concoction of unique authenticity (with seriously amazing hair) – Rebecca Campbell
I’m Louise, I am a Writer, Life Coach, Tarot Reader, Speaker, Artist and my most recent endeavour has been collaborating on my first jewellery collection ‘As Above, So Below’. Octopus hands I like to call it.
I am currently based in Los Angeles, California but was born and grew up in England.
I believe in empowerment through self awareness and self knowledge. I’ve come to understand that we all experience regular disconnects between our Mind, Body and Spirit. Those are the moments where we feel the most lost, unwell or uninspired. It can be hard to feel connected when we don’t know why we are out of balance.
I am fiercely independent and stubborn about being myself. I am not here to encourage you to do anything other than show you how to get back into your own body in order to reclaim your unique experience and feel alive and in balance.
So here is a quick fire look at my story:
Feeling spirited has never been a problem for me. At age three, my parents found me casting spells in the backseat of the car and from that point on I was—and forever will be—enraptured by magic and miracles. I have always been highly intuitive and felt a strong connection to my inner guidance and the spirit world, this has always been ‘normal’ for me, and has always given me an ease with understanding others, but also at many times left me feeling isolated within my own wonderland.
In my early twenties I became seriously ill with a chronic pain condition and I had to give up life as I knew it. After feeling like the healthcare system was failing me and didn’t suit me I recovered using only alternative health methods. The physical pain took me away from loving my body, it didn’t feel like a safe place, but the healing path I chose enabled me to reconnect and discover a whole new way of living.
In this period I also experienced trauma and consequently suffered from PTSD. This was the disconnect from the mind. There were years where I felt like I was ruled by fear but now I feel able to stand in my own self, happy, confident and feel empowered even within challenges. I feel excited about change, enthusiastic about life and totally able to laugh with and at my journey. I have been practicing my own forms of mindfulness for ten years now and love sharing them with others.
By being unapologetic about owning and honouring my inner weirdo I reconnected to my spirit through paying attention to what I was impassioned by. I am driven by my own creativity, intuition and desire to feel good. I am an artist and if I neglect what lights me up, I feel terrible. I believe that to be spiritual all we need to do is honour our spirit. It is different for everyone and does not have to come in the form of a green juice or a yoga mat (though if this is what lights you up then YES!) There is no wrong way to be you, but finding that comfort within the self is where the hard work happens.
So, I completely broke apart and learned how to snap myself together again. After my illness recovery I spent six years running my own fashion brand and until I felt I wanted to honour my previous experiences by being of service and sharing my story to help others to claim theirs.
I believe it’s ok to feel not ok and by becoming self aware and honouring all of the experiences and feelings that we have, we can align with our truest and best self. Happiness and success are not destinations – Joy is found in single moments. We all very often feel alone, yet our fears are shared by more people than we ever realise.
I work from my own experiences and practice the lessons I share every single day. I can’t wait to meet you!
I can work with you via one on one coaching and Tarot sessions and through workshops. You can also visit my shop for Yearly Tarotscopes and read my monthly columns for The Numinous, Mademoiselle Robot and Live the Process. My ‘official’ bio is below.
I am an INFP – My sun is in Scorpio and my moon is in Pisces.
Even when things seem uncertain I understand that there is a magic that goes far beyond illusion and is a force of nature in itself, an energy that is available for us to create the life we desire.
Louise Androlia is a Writer, Inspirational Speaker, Life Coach, Artist, Tarot Reader and general Magic Maker from the UK and now based in Los Angeles, CA. She works with clients one on one, in groups and through writing and believes in empowerment through self awareness and self knowledge. At age three, her parents found her casting spells in the backseat of the car and growing up, she was—and forever will be—enraptured by magic and miracles. She is on a constant quest to honour her inner weirdo and loves teaching people how to feel their feelings.
Louise is completely unapologetic about honouring her journey and claiming her experience, and she wants you to do the same. In a world where so many people are feeling overwhelmed by what to eat or how to live she isn’t the cookie cutout version of a coach that you might conjure up. She will show you get to know your mind-body and spirit, reconnect the three and crash you with full force back into your experience.
As a catalyst for positive change Louise speaks with openness about her own past and present challenges and uses her experiences to work with clients by helping them understand as much as possible about their unique balance. She guides her clients to rediscover and reclaim their personal power by helping them to reconnect their mind, body and spirit. She has always been highly intuitive and her ability to tune in to the guidance that a client needs is unique and successful.
At 21, Louise became seriously ill with a chronic pain condition. She gave up her life as she knew it. Feeling failed by the healthcare system, she turned to alternative healing methods, which felt natural. Over the next five years, she recovered from her physical illness and PTSD via a diet change, a combination of holistic therapies and a shift in perception. Once better, Louise ran a celebrated handmade lingerie brand for five years and still continues to make art and collaborate creatively with enchanting friends around the globe.
Thirteen years on from the start of her healing journey, Louise sees her journey as a gift, so that she could guide others to know that they are never alone on their journey. Her experiences cause her to break down and crack open to a new way of living and thinking. She learned to proceed with a holistic and spiritual outlook and now helps others do the same via practical and inspirational coaching and guidance. She uses the experiences that she has overcome as the energy to encourage others that they can do the same.
As an Energy Expert Louise regularly runs an ‘Energy Awareness Workshop‘, an inspiring lesson teaching you how to avoid taking on other peoples energies and how to protect and clear your space when you do.
Louise’s blog features regular posts offering guidance and inspiration so you feel supported in making change. As a speaker Louise unites groups of people together to break through their fears and feel empowered to move on with their journey.
Her most recent endeavour is the launch of ‘As Above, So Below’ a modern day talisman jewellery collection in collaboration with Jessica de Lotz. For more information about the collection please click here.
She is available for one on one consults, article commissions, as a speaker for events and would love to hear from you.
