She is a certified hypnotist, personal trainer, burlesque performer, and yoga instructor, as well as a popular writer for People magazine and Elephant Journal. She offers “Find Your Sparkle” coaching programs, workshops, and destination retreats and teaches all over the world. Her home base is in Colorado.
Author Lora Cheadle found herself trapped in a
persona she had created of a powerful and successful practicing
attorney. She realized that while her career was impressive, she
did not feel the same sense of power she projected outside herself
inside her own heart. In order to re-connect with her inner
“spark,” she had to literally peel away the layers she had
fabricated, based on what the outside world expected of her. As she
started stripping away her layers (both metaphorically and
physically by performing burlesque!), she discovered a new way to
be in the world, a way that energized and fulfilled her spirit as
no fabricated “persona” could do, and she called that approach
FLAUNT. FLAUNT! Drop Your Cover and Reveal Your
& Spiritual Self (New World Library, November 5,
2019) is chock-full of inspiring ideas and tips to make your life
as shiny and glittery as possible.
In Act 1 of the book, we are taught how to “Recognize and Release” the labels, roles, and scripts that are always running and influencing us. In Act 2, we are introduced to the first three steps of FLAUNT! which include “Revealing and Reveling in” what makes our lives sparkle. And, at last, in Act 3, we take the final two steps and “re-choreograph” our lives to be better than we could have ever imagined.
“I believe that women deserve to be seen,” Cheadle writes. “And I believe that universally women want to be seen. For who they are. Not for what they do. Not for who they are in relation to others, or what they can give. But for themselves. For who they are inside, at their most raw, authentic, vulnerable, and naked core. I believe that when women are not seen, they cannot be accepted for who they are. When women are not accepted for who they are, they cover their power, dim their light, hide their beauty, and reject uninhibited joy. They lose what I like to call their sparkle, which is everything inside that makes them uniquely, authentically, and spectacularly themselves. When we lose our sparkle, we lose touch with our hearts, we suppress our personal desires, and we fall out of love with our bodies. In short, we fall into a state of chronic self-judgment, and we stop enjoying life fully. . . . When you get naked, and unapologetically expose all facets of who you are in everything that you do, you can’t help but sparkle and shine!”
