The Magic Feather to Spiritual Coaching

But you’re no Dumbo. So if I tell you that spiritually based coaching or counselling actually will improve your life, why would you believe me????

Well…let me tell you about Spiritual Coaching. What exactly is it? While your common dictionary defines “coaching” as: to give instructions or advice to …there is no definition in the common dictionary for Spiritual Coaching.

So I kinda wrote in my own definition and while it includes a lot of the definition above, I’ve added that your Spiritual coach empowers you to connect to your own truths. In a session, you get to focus on your own truths and your Spiritual coach can “give instruction or advice” based on on your own personal beliefs. What does the Universe say? What does God say? What about your angels? In a world where there is a scientific explanation to everything, what about in the instance where there just isn’t one?

I chose to become a Spiritual coach when I became lost in my own belief system. Raised a Catholic, I was confused by a lot of the “rules”  that the Church had. I was now a divorced single mom and I felt I just didn’t fit in anywhere anymore. So, I began my own Spiritual journey. I began studying different religions trying to find my place and I learned they all had a common thread. Love. It all began and ended with Love. I learned that I wasn’t going to burn into fiery ash if I didn’t fit into the Catholic church anymore and I learned that there were other people out there just like me! People like me who wanted to feel loved, who wanted to believe in something bigger than themselves and didn’t want to feel alone in this big old world. I knew I desperately still wanted to feel that unconditional love when one is connected to Source and after years of training and coaching of my own, I discovered…that “source” was love. I felt that love. I felt that love in my heart for who I was. I didn’t feel alone at all and I decided to use my own training to help others find their way back to that “Love” that existed in all religions.

There is nothing wrong with wanting to believe in something bigger than yourself and it’s ok to want to have Spiritual practices or rituals, even if you don’t fit into a particular religion. Nowadays, some of us still needs rituals. I do! For me, everything is a ritual, I  have a morning ritual, a bedtime ritual, a meditation ritual, a Yoga ritual, a sitting in nature ritual, a howling at the moon ritual…and I want to help you find the rituals that fill you up and bring you closer to that love.  There are no wrong or right answers.  There are no good or bad decisions.  Like I said, in any religion it all begins and ends with love. So let me be your magic feather. If our only life purpose is to give and receive that love than I will work with you in a team effort where the “Divine” is considered and we all work together to help you along on your journey. I’ll do my best to connect you with your Spiritual beliefs and teach you how you can receive that loving guidance through your heart, through your intuition, through your “gut”… even if you don’t know really know exactly what your beliefs are yet. That’s ok.

On my own spiritual journey, I remember that during a mediation class where the facilitator was supporting us to connect with our “Guardian Angel” , we were doing a visualization and I had Jesus appear to me.  I was flabbergasted. I was confused. Not considering myself a Christian in any way shape or form I couldn’t understand why now, in my mid thirties I was being approached by Jesus? I sought answers, I sought explanations, I even I fought it! I wasn’t part of any Church and I liked my Buddhist practices so why was Jesus appearing to me? As I meditated more, studied more and honed my skills more, over the years, I stopped questioning why Jesus still comes to me in meditations. I feel more connected to that Love and that’s all that matters. It doesn’t have to “look” a certain way.  I stopped trying to find explanations and I stopped fighting it. The Jesus I see is a wanderer of the world, a teacher, a healer, a carpenter, a hippie, a very cool dude. He meditates and heals. Accepting everyone. Loving everyone. He never leaves you. He doesn’t abandon you so you can learn “lessons”, he doesn’t leave you if you’ve been “bad” or in your ego. He sticks by you. This Jesus exists in my heart, that’s the real Jesus to me because he loves me and is there for me. Christians always told me that the Jesus I speak to must be a demon or an imposter because you can’t communicate with Jesus that way and to be wary for I am speaking to a false Jesus. What? Who said? Why couldn’t I speak to the real Jesus this way? This Jesus is a being of white light and healing that loves me unconditionally and that’s the Jesus I want to hang with. That’s the real Jesus to me.

Me and my homie, JC.

When we are filled up with love for ourselves, in a healthy way, that love just spills out of you on to others. The Dalai Lama says, “If you can, help others; if you cannot do that, at least do not harm them.” All of us can connect with that Love. Some of us just  need a little coaching, a little mentoring and that’s where I like to think, I come in. I will never try to convince you of anything that isn’t already part of your own belief system. I will just help you connect with your own universal and spiritual current and remind you, it’s ok to be you and you are never alone. You are loved.

Imagine, you’ve teleported into the future and you are living your life as a happier, wiser, more at peace, spiritual soul. You got there because you’ve given up trying to do things on your own, figuring things out on your own and you’ve learned to tap to into that Love! Remember when I said, there is a scientific explanation to everything? There is also a spiritual explanation to everything too! Doesn’t that blow your mind? And when you learn to deal with challenges by tapping into your inner wisdom, you don’t have to do it on your own anymore and you don’t need someone like me, a Spiritual coach, anymore either.

By opening our hearts and asking certain questions, we are opening ourselves up to the Universe’s love… to Nature’s love… to God’s love…whatever your belief system is…it all begins and ends with love, remember? There is no wrong or right answer on your own personal Spiritual journey and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. If they do? It’s time to bless and release them.

Spiritual coaching sessions should help open your heart to spiritual answers. It should never feel shaming or negative. In turn, I believe you open your heart to more peace and more love in your life. And who doesn’t want that?

Be Thankful for Who You Are

I often tell my clients and friends to be thankful, and accept and embrace who they are…but at the same time I often hear from them, that they just don’t know how to do that.

Now, I have written and spoken several times all over North America about my own journey of accepting myself for who I am, who I am not and whom I will never be. I can speak until I’m blue in the face on my acceptance of the label “Drama Queen”.

For me, being a Drama Queen means that I am a deeply sensitive soul, not a mean and angry asshole that says mean and hurtful things to others. There’s a difference. I am expressive, emotional and bold. I am extremely passionate and fiery.  I’m empathic, I am highly sensitive and I feel… a LOT! Which I am thankful for because it allows me to easily tap into my intuition and receive clear messages from Guides and Angels. I also have my clear boundaries and limits and am able to make them known but sometimes its difficult to express those boundaries because I can be an asshole and I can hurt others in the process if I’m not careful. Yep, I said it, I can be an asshole and I just can’t bring that to the party if I want to play well with others. There are times I have to learn to shut up and walk away before I cause damage and hurt. To this day, this is still a work in process for me when it comes to personal relationships.

People that love me, cringe when I call myself this but for me it has no negative meaning what so ever. Calling myself a Drama Queen is my cheeky way of accepting that yes, I am a dramatic person and I AM THANKFUL for that! It does not have to be negative. I am mature-ish enough now to know that grown women don’t need to bring drama into their relationships. I am emotional and that’s ok. I can choose how and how not to express my “drama”. We all have the choice of how we “show up” in life. If I am to accept that I am a Drama Queen, how do I want to present myself in front of others? If was completely “emotionless” how would I want to present myself in front of others? It’s all about perception. We all have to be a “certain” way to get along and play well with others, how do you want to show up?

I have found my voice, I know my voice well and I am able to voice my voice. (Is that even proper English? “voice my voice?”) When I see or feel an injustice it can hurt me deeply and personally  BUT… It also allows me to be a public speaker that speaks from the heart. I get up on stage or in front of a camera and without any problem, speak before people, expressing myself from deep within. I deeply feel pain and mourn boldly. I feel deep anger and frustration and I throw myself on the bed and weep loudly into my pillow or almost rip through the pages of my journal with my pen. BUT… I only express this anger, frustration and deep pain to a few select people, in a safe space, in a safe way with those that I trust. How I make my boundaries and limits known to others doesn’t have to be in a dramatic, violent lash out or protest. I do let others speak their mind now, I listen as well and I believe in peace, acceptance and love. Lots and lots of love.

Dramatic people can be the some of the best teachers, artists, songwriters, actors, motivational speakers, even life changers. But don’t get me wrong, not all “Drama Queens” are good and most cannot exist without an audience. Some for example, don’t know what to do with all their “drama” and don’t even know what it means or how to express it in healthy ways.

Because many drama queens need that audience or don’t know how to exist without it, they might create their own drama, negatively. They lash out at others, get physical and violent. They might yell, scream, cry or even berate others. Some are manipulators. Some are gas lighters. I’ve seen some drama queens take others “hostage” and wrap everyone up in their “drama.” They are unable or unwilling to let you leave their performance. Just try and walk away when one is in full rant.

And we can’t always blame them, they often don’t know any better. They never had positive role models. No one ever taught them differently. Then… There are people in life whose life journey is just to be an asshole…all the time! It is true! But that doesn’t mean you have to be part of their journey. Just send them love, bless them and release them. Let them go.

They most likely haven’t embraced their drama and haven’t found healthy ways of getting out all of their emotions. That’s what drama can sometimes be, pent up emotions in adults that never learned as children what to do with their emotions! If they are not lashing out others, I’ve seen some that feel a deep sense of betrayal for incidents as a child. They are triggered for example and completely shut down.  They shut others out of their lives, giving every one “the silent treatment”, alienating themselves from the outside world and become bitter. They beat themselves up and dramatize things happening in their lives as a deep personal injury. Also a dramatic play.  I’m not saying all of the above are wrong either. I’m just saying we all have ways of expressing ourselves and accepting who we are. Good or bad. We all deal with things differently. There are those of us that are dramatic, those of us that are not and all those in between. Give thanks to where you once were, where you are now and where you want to be.

Angry Lexi Gaia Verano

The start of my drama queen, angry asshole days.

As a young woman, I was an angry asshole all the time and I decided to change that. I kept hurting people and losing them and I had to put a stop to that. I had a lousy childhood and angry drama was my “go to”, I had to accept this.  If you accept that you are a certain way and you don’t like it, then change it. Only you have the power to change yourself. Accept who you are and then choose to either embrace certain qualities about yourself or change them. My friend Nadine once said, ” Deal with it, delegate it or ditch it!”. I loved that saying of hers and I still hold it close it my chest. Learn who you are truly. What are your triggers? Who are the people you can be around that bring you to your highest self? Who are the people that trigger you?

Today: I am thankful and accept I am dramatic. I accept I will never be a size 2 and am thankful for my sexy curves. I accept I will never have straight sleek beautiful hair. I accept I am not the perfect mother but I’m thankful for my awesome kids and I work hard for them. I accept I will never live in a mansion but my house kicks ass. I accept I will never be a millionaire.  I accept I am scattered and messy. I accept I’m not the best artist/painter. I accept I hate jogging and going to the gym. I accept I love eating in bed and wearing my pajamas all day. I accept I am an emotional eater and I love sweets that might not be the best for me. I accept I am scared of confrontation and I give far too many fucks where fucks do not need be given. Aaaaand… I am SO thankful and finally accept I see and feel spirits. I accept I see fairies. I accept I have intuitive gifts. I accept my gifts and I accept my faults and not a single gram of fuck shall be given to what others may think of that.  I am thankful!

Now, what I choose to do with all this acceptance is my right and so is it your right with your own acceptance of who you are. Be thankful for what you do have in your life.  Accept it and then either embrace it or change it. I’ve been told several times in my life, “…but Lex if you really want to live in a mansion, YOU CAN!” and “if you really want to be a size 2, YOU CAN!” They are right. I can… but those are things that I rather just accept and embrace and not give any further thought to. I have far too many other things I want to accept and change, those two just aren’t important enough to me. I believe in being thankful. I believe in peace, acceptance and love. Lots and lots of love.

Angel Messages – Archangel Gabriel

Hello everyone!

This is the first post of my Angel Messages that is now public for everyone. I used to write my Angel Messages newsletter for subscribers only but recently it came to me that everyone would benefit from these messages and you don’t have to just be a subscriber to enjoy them.

Archangel Wellness - Gabriel Lane

Today I am being guided to speak about Today I am being guided to speak about Archangel Gabriel. An Archangel near and dear to my heart. To those of you that have read my story “The Angel in Orange” in my book, this story is completely dedicated to Gabe.

So if you are reading my blog for the first time, know that I speak of angels and archangels as non-denominational, celestial beings that aren’t part of any particular “religion”. Gabriel however is recognized in Judaism, Christianity, Islam and Bahaai Faith as he is one of the only two archangels mentioned in the Bible; Gabriel and Michael. It is Gabriel that first appears to Mary to advise her of the upcoming birth of her son, Jesus. But Gabriel is not just known in the Bible, you can see different versions of Gabriel depicted in countless TV shows and movies such as Supernatural, Constantine, Legion, The Prophecy, 40 Nights and of course the movie titled simply, “Gabriel” to name a few.

As the archangel that delivers powerful messages and announcements, Gabriel is often depicted with a horn or a trumpet and who’s name means “Messenger of God”. Gabriel often appears in a male form but don’t let that fool you; Also as the angel of children and known to aid and assist women during pregnancy and childbirth, Gabriel often appears as a female as well. Countless stories speak of Gabriel androgynously as well and that’s one of the things I love about Gabe the most. When I feel the warm orange glow of Archangel Gabriel’s aura, I know he is with me and it doesn’t matter how she appears to me. I know he brings good tidings. 🙂
