Lauren Wenzell is one of the coaches that we found this month and we did a little interview with her. She impressed us with her creativity, from being a coach, podcaster, published author.. to having a vast arsenal of modalities that she uses to help her clients, she is truly a visionary and, as she likes to call herself, a student of life.
She has also a super high intuitive abilities, she can connect directly to her client’s soul and help them meet the needs or find their gifts that they themselves are not even aware of.
Her approach is unique in itself. She allows complete freedom and a safe place for her clients to find the answers they were looking for.
Her greatest satisfaction is when she sees that magical moment in her client’s eyes, where they realize something unexpected and transform on the spot. It’s truly an innovation. Here is what she said.
Meet Life Coach Lauren Wenzell:

First of all, how are you and your family doing in these Pandemic times?
Thank you for asking! There is definitely no doubt that this pandemic has been trying, at times vastly challenging, and a huge adjustment on the majority of society, our families, and how we relate to life.
Personally, the start of the pandemic was a huge wake up call for me and launched me into my career as a life coach.
Through these new and adapting times, I have found that aligning to purpose, community, and being of service has drastically shifted my mentality positively.
I noticed prior to the pandemic I was not really living my life the way I had envisioned for years and ironically during this global shift was able to see where I could put my efforts into bettering the whole (world) that feels in alignment.
I currently live in Austin, TX and my immediate family is in Southern CA so at the start of the pandemic it felt very isolating, unpredictable, and the fear of the unknown was present.
But as we are in it, going on 2 years now, I have found the importance of relationships, connection, and what we each individually need and agree to in those relationships.
A huge growing and learning experience! With any experience, there can be both positives and negatives to reflect on.
How does the coronavirus pandemic affect your clients? Did it affect you at all?
The coronavirus pandemic invited my clients to observe their environments, relationships, family dynamics, but most importantly their relationship with themselves.
It was great to time reflect and see what they were ready to agree to and let go of, and what no longer served them.
It challenged them in their workplaces and guided them to examine where they felt more suited. What I observed has been a period of huge growth, transformation, self love, healing, and breaking of certain patterns that had been holding them back in living life more aligned to their wants and needs.
The pandemic absolutely affected me as well.
Those periods of isolation, questioning if I was on the “right” path, doing the “right” thing, wondering if I was in the “right” place has tugged at me since the beginning (not so much as of recently). It has been a great moment in time where I got to do the same process as my clients too.
What are the biggest lessons that you learned in this pandemic?
With great risk comes great reward as cliché as that may sound.
Loving yourself first is how you get to love others better. Alone time, self care practices, meditation, and trusting your intuition can heal lifetimes of generational habits and trauma.
We are all connected, the most powerful thing one can do is focus on their inner world and see how it shows up in the outer.
Tell us about you, your career, how you started with your coaching career?
I am the owner and founder of Transfiguration Coaching LLC specializing in life coaching.
I use a range of different modalities that include a blend of spiritual and scientific methodologies to support my clients such as: akashic record readings, human design, mindset work, trauma healing, meditation practices, etc…
I am also a podcaster, channel, published author, content creator, visionary, but most important (and my favorite title) a student of life.
I was a previous behavior therapist with over 10 years of working with neurodiverse clients and their families.
Being someone who was also born with a unique ability (mild cerebral palsy or spastic diplegia) I felt like I could somewhat relate to my previous clientele, society’s limitations when we put labels on people, especially children. Fortunately, my parents did not label me, gave me the opportunity to operate as a whole, complete and capable person, and though my childhood was challenging, to say the least, I saw that I was born with a gift and not a curse that I had the previous limiting belief of.
What prompted me into coaching was when the pandemic hit, I found myself overwhelmed with where I found myself in life.
My intuition was telling me for years that I was meant to be elsewhere, and although I loved the clients I had worked with, there were many holes in the system.
I had just completed a certification to become an Akashic Records Reader (this is where someone is able to look up another’s soul information, gifts, past life karmic patterns, and able to clear these patterns) and felt the pull to take a leap of faith.
This was one of the greatest and most frightening risks I have taken without a clear path, a known outcome, but complete trust that it will all unfold as is meant to. That the intuitive messages I have been receiving from the previous years were finally time to take action on.
What was your biggest obstacle that you had to overcome in your life that made you who you are today?
There are definitely a few that stand out. In my short 33 years of life thus far I have experienced what feels like lifetimes.
I think one of the biggest obstacles I have overcome was healing my trauma. It is an ongoing process, yet I have been able to meet it, face it, feel the pain, love it, and find forgiveness.
I have the tools to continue to do the work, and have found acceptance in who I am when I experienced decades of ridicule from those to tell me I shouldn’t.
I binge drank for 17 years, survivor of different types of traumas, and had my father pass before my 30th birthday to name a few that stand out.
My sobriety and commitment to healing, self love, and empowerment for myself provide me to be the best I can be for the life I want to create, experience, and invite others to do the same.
Our past does not dictate what is our destiny. That is our choice and what has made me who I am today.
The Coaching Style:
How do you innovate with coaching your clients?
I meet them where they currently are and connect them to their vision.
I hold loving and nonjudgmental space, I open myself up to receive intuitive guidance from infinite intelligence, God, the universe, Source, my guides, their guides (whatever you would like to label it), and ask reflective questions.
At the end of the day, it is the client who has the answers they seek, but sometimes we just need a safe space for that to be reflected back and give ourselves permission to be who we were created to be.
I analyze their Human Design aura type and soul gifts to coach in specifics, but what is most important is that it resonates with the client.
There is a magical moment when something will come through that I could not imagine, I witness the transformation of a client’s being, and see them reclaim their power. That to me is true innovation, a blessing, and how I love to show up and serve not just my clients, but friends, family, and maybe a new acquaintance (all with consent of course).
What’s unique about your coaching approach?
I am not sure if this is unique, but I rely heavily on my intuition while I am in connection with each client and meet them where they need to be met. I trust what comes to me and what to focus on.
Whether it is going over their human design chart, focusing on some inner child healing, guiding them in a meditative process where they are connected to a higher dimension of knowledge, so they find their own answers.
It really has nothing to do with my opinion, what I think someone should do, it is what the client feels aligned with, empowered by, and trusts in themselves. I do not think I know more, and I sort of cringe at labels, even calling myself a life coach, but I understand it helps give people context.
The most empowering aspect of coaching I have found and believe to be part of my unique process is asking lots of reflective questions, that way the client can be in a space to find their own solutions and it dissolves any expectation of not trusting their own inner guidance or projecting their inner authority onto someone else.
What benefits do your clients get after working with you?
They find out a whole lot about themselves!
They understand their limiting beliefs, where they came from, how to heal them, what their soul gifts are, what their energetic and aura type are, how to align to their purpose, and most importantly a greater sense of freedom, self empowerment, and enthusiasm for life.
Do you use any specific tools to be efficient with your clients?
In terms of coaching I use different modalities I have listed previously like human design, akashic record readings, energetic meditative processes, connecting them with their inner child to support in trauma healing, how to reparent and create safety in their body, mindset work, creating powerful affirmations, etc.
I uphold safe boundaries where my clients can reach out to me if something comes up before a session and can receive laser coaching, so they feel supported along the way.
Being able to have that extra support can be imperative when we are dealing with huge shifts, past traumas, and challenging times.
I always want my clients to know that they are supported even after our sessions are over.
If you had a super megaphone that, when you speak into, the whole world will hear your message, what would you say?
Heal yourself, heal the world.
It is an ongoing process, so when you commit know it is a lifelong journey, a sacred journey that is the most beautiful quest you can choose.
What is the greatest lesson you have learned in your life?
That’s a tough question to answer since I have learned many valuable lessons! I think one of the greatest ones is that we truly are more powerful than we give ourselves credit for.
We live in a time where we have the most freedom and access to transformational tools that can shift our realities significantly.
Our minds can be our deadliest weapon or our greatest ally. With healing, forgiveness, and belief in what we are presented in our imagination (those big dreams and visions), we can be unstoppable.
We are given these visions for a reason! Our word, both spoken and mental, creates our reality. It is a practice to be mindful of that!
But we are 95% dictated by subconscious programming, so when we make certain things habitual (our thoughts, what we say and think, our actions, our habits) that are in alignment with what we want (a healthier lifestyle, happiness, feeling love, experience abundance, peace, etc.) we shift our life to be a match for those desired outcomes.
Your final thoughts?
We are living in a time where what we choose has dramatic effects not only on our lives, but the world’s.
We are given this opportunity to discover ourselves like never before. The more that we connect with our heart, our soul, and the expansive cosmos we will realize we can significantly impact this world in a positive way.
It is my mission to leave this planet better than when I entered it.
We all are worthy and deserving to align to our passions, live from the abundant state we innately have, and celebrate one another.
My hope is that we each see the importance of the self, love ourselves unconditionally, forgive, and be able to love others from that powerful place.
It truly is a miraculous experience and way of being.
