Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in wellness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Lourdes Contreras Araujo, founder of Lightpaths by Lourdes, located in Montreal, QC, Canada.

What's your business, and who are your customers?

Lightpaths is committed to helping primarily women who are ready to find their alignment to trust themselves and eliminate unhealthy and unnecessary stress from their lives through Energy Healing and Intuitive Guidance. In life, we will sometimes be faced with challenges, and some might see them as setbacks. Consequently, feeling stuck, confused, and lacking clarity are some of the symptoms, not realizing that those vibrations are the cause of imbalance, illness, and blocked intuition. This pandemic has amplified some of these situations, testing many of us to the core.

Tell us about yourself

My name is Lourdes Danixa. Since I was a kid, I always had this innate calling to all things mystic; born and raised in Peru, being influenced by both my parents, from two opposite regions, their superstitions and their unique perspectives had a play in this. I started interpreting premonitory dreams as a young kid. I was able to prevent many unwanted events within the family, this evolved to giving my first tarot reading at 19 without any training yet. I embarked on Energy healing in 2015; I learned Reiki since and helped several people; I kept giving intuitive guidance readings; it was a hidden passion until I created my Facebook page Lightpaths on July 25th, 2017. I was motivated and ready to share more with the world.

This was a point in my life where I was facing several difficult life events, and Energy healing really saved my life. The moment I turned to this work, my life transformed positively; I witnessed miracles happen, met incredible people, and healed from an unexplained UTI all by doing this work. My motivation to keep up my work is to spread the word that one must never give up. Learning to grow in faith with our life circumstances is extremely key. Once that is done, resilience is the consequence and all when you learn to trust your own inner guidance. There will always be options, and sometimes it is not what we think we know; there will be more that is not available to our physical eye.

I am now a Certified Life Coach with a focus on guiding you using your intuition and Energy Healing.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

My happy customers, seeing their positive transformations really fills my heart with joy.

What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?

Not having the right crowd and discouragement.

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

Ensure you have a strong fallback economically speaking, make sure you know your ideal niche, and follow your heart because when you do, you are more authentic.

Is there anything else you'd like to share?

I will be launching some workshops on Intuition as a tool for living at ease by the beginning of June 2022. I am super excited about it as it is a project I have been working on since last year. One will be in person in Montreal; then, they will be moved online. I will offer them in English and Spanish.
