The Story Of Galexis
by Ginger, the channel for Galexis
Learning to Channel
Daniel and I were both focused on our spiritual and emotional development for years.
Both of us were rebels in a way and felt that religious traditions were rather confining.
Both of us wanted more direct experience of divine energy and personal happiness that
we could not find in any institution. So we began looking into channeled information. We
found Lazaris, a channeled entity, and started studying with him in 1980. Every couple of
months, we’d fly out of Miami to a city in California for a weekend with Lazaris. There,
we’d experience many enlightening personal and spiritual breakthroughs. We also signed
up for private readings with Lazaris and asked many questions about our personal
While the readings we had with Lazaris were remote and via the phone, we also went to
local channels in South Florida, such as Mataare. Talking to channeled beings and
listening to them speak became natural and comfortable for us. However, channeling
became rather popular in the late 1980’s after the publication of Shirley MacLaine’s “Out
on a Limb” and New Agers emerged out of the ex-hippies to form a kind of spiritual
movement. We started to find it not as easy to obtain a space in Lazaris’ or Mataare’s
schedule. That’s when we realized that we were too dependent on outside input and
decided that we must become more emotionally and spiritually self reliant. We both
decided that we would seek to get answers to our questions on our own.
So we settled upon an exchange. One of us, we decided, would try to tune in to our own
spiritual helpers, guides, or personal intuition and the other would ask questions on what
we were curious about. I remember lying down and visualizing my guides and saying
hello to them. Once I felt I was connected enough, Daniel would ask a question that could
be answered by a yes or a no. When he asked his question, I looked to see if my guides
were nodding their heads up and down for yes or left and right for no. I didn’t hear any
answers at first, only visual cues. At other times, Daniel would lie down and I would ask
him for answers. If you’ve ever done muscle testing (kinesiology), this is similar, but
much, much slower!
Although both of us could, with some patience, get yes and no answers, I began to “see”
additional pictures and “hear” words and phrases. I was developing my psychic ability!
As we continued to practice, I began to get more contextual information, such as
conditions for the yes or no answers, or other side issues to consider. Sometimes the
guides would show me the projected futures for Daniel or I regarding the different
options we were considering. So, naturally, I began to be the person lying down, the
reader, and Daniel the questioner every time!
Over time, I received more and more complex interpretations of the answers. Although
this was helpful in answering a few of our many questions, it didn't go deep enough. I
noticed that if I had any issue, anxiety, or concern about the answer, or I thought it
significant or important, I would have too much difficulty getting any information. The
answer would be difficult to get, or the information would be distorted or inaccurate in
some way. This, I realized, was my ego getting in the way of my receptivity.
In an effort to improve the depth and quality of the connection with my guides and the
information I was receiving, I attended a class series in channeling given by a renowned
trance medium, Alexander Murray of New York City. What I had been doing, Alexander
pointed out, was called mental channeling. He urged me and the other students to go
farther and let spirit guides speak directly through us. To do that, we needed to connect
with our “Gatekeeper,” a guide that made sure we were safe and kept the negative entities
(astrals) out. A gatekeeper is part of the Spiritualist tradition, and I’d known about it for
20 years. However, I didn’t know mine and at first wanted to stay a mental medium, or
psychic. But when he gave us the chance to be a direct channel in the last class of the
series, I decided to let go of any resistance and allow whatever to happen.
On that day, Alexander, channeling his gatekeeper, relaxed us and prepared us. Although
I felt quiet within, I was still a little nervous and excited. Suddenly, a beam of light
descended into my head and I felt a clear light vibration flowing through my brain, pure
and clean. Then I heard a disembodied voice speaking, vibrating loudly inside this beam
of light while my lips moved! It was mine, but not mine. The voice introduced itself as
my gatekeeper, Irene. She offered to help me tune in, to bring others through to speak
through me, and basically protect my energy field throughout the process.
After the class, I kept practicing this direct channeling with Daniel. Irene would talk a
little and then open up the floor for another spirit to speak. Several of the guides that
Mataare had channeled for me began to visit our sessions and speak. Sun Bear, Lao Tsu,
and Philos had been my favorites at Mataare’s and now I began to feel their different
presences and energies coming through me. Each one would move my body into a
specific position and the volume and accent would be unique. For example, Sun Bear
always started with a vigorous “Ho!” Other spirit friends, personal helpers for me and
Daniel, began to show up over the months, and sometimes Irene would have a lot to say,
too before she’d give up the floor to another guide.
Although each session was interesting, and I could bring through several guides in an
evening, the experience was time consuming and tiring. Between each guide, I’d come
back out of trance, and then re-enter trance for the next one. Coming in and out was hard
as I had to transition my attention out of and then back into myself (see the description on
the Ginger and Channeling page) through some vibrational levels. This exhausted me.
Since I was already suffering from chronic fatigue at the time, I found myself reluctant to
do frequent sessions. Nevertheless, my ability as a channel grew and the information
Daniel received became clearer and more precise. He felt the caring and loving energy of
the guides more deeply.
The Voice Appears
We continued to visit with beings through other channels. I desired this, as the messages I
channeled for my more important issues were still often sabotaged by my own ego
concerns and distractions. However, in early August 1988, in a channeling with Mataare
and before any entity came through, he commented that there was someone who
especially wanted to come through and work with me. I was pleased and thought it was
probably yet another friendly guide. But only a couple of weeks later, as I was channeling
for Daniel, suddenly the energy within me became unusually still and profound. Slowly, a
few words came through as a powerful presence emerged. The voice was deeper, more
resonant. When Daniel asked, "What is your name?" The entity said, "We are a group and
we do not have a name."
The group went on to say that they had decided amongst themselves to make it easier for
me to channel. Instead of having to go back and forth for each one to speak and get so
tired, they told Daniel “we will speak as One. We’ll all be here and instead of the channel
leaving and returning, we’ll just ‘pass the microphone’ around between us and take turns
speaking. That way, we can help the channel increase her energy rather than lose it.”
By the next session, they still didn’t have a name, so Daniel decided to call them "the
Voice." Over time, the Voice revealed that their members were all of our favorite guides,
plus others I had never channeled individually. And I was pleased to notice that I did gain
a little energy each time I channeled. The Voice attuned my body to handle greater and
greater frequencies, and I noticed a corresponding improvement in the depth of my trance
and the quality of the information.
At first, Daniel could still perceive a difference in the accents, speaking styles, and body
postures as one guide gave another one the "microphone." All this felt strange to me, and
I would sometimes tense up. Was all of this real? Can I trust what is happening? Can I
truly allow more energy to go through me? So the Voice calmed my fears. They
suggested that I would feel more secure if they took on an accent that I couldn't imitate.
Any accent would work, I knew, because I could never do accents. I was even jealous of
those people who could.
So the Voice started speaking in an accent, not unlike the weird accents that other woo
woo channels used. This did convince me, because the vibration in my head would come
into my tongue and position it in a way I never did. While I thought the accent was a bit
hokey and sometimes still do, it worked to convince me that someone or something
beyond my own self was at work. I was able to relax more with the channeling process
and open up. Even now, as I go into trance, I can feel my mouth moving into its
“Galexis” position so that their accent can come through.
Still, I would tire out in between sessions, and then resist channeling the next time, even
though I felt better afterward. Maybe I was like Edgar Cayce, who kept having all sorts of
problems and issues when he didn’t do the readings. Was I being pushed into doing this
somehow? Was this my destiny? I resisted. I didn’t want to channel. I wanted to be
creative, to do music, art, and writing. But I was too tired to create and it seemed that my
creativity had been lost. It took all my energy just to do my minimal daily tasks.
During this time period, my pain from fibromyalgia and my fatigue arising from poor
sleep quality had taken their toll on me. Essentially, I could not work. My astrology
practice and my nutritional MLM felt too demanding. But I wished to be productive. It
was maddening to see week after week go by without having accomplished much of
anything. After all, I could channel, and that would be a great service. It would be
productive and I could sit and get out of the way. Could there be an easier job for me?
Channeling Publicly: A New Phase
By early 1994, my resistance to channeling was more than counterbalanced by the
information we were receiving. It had become so specific and transformational that both
of us were experiencing exciting leaps of spiritual awareness and emotional healing. We
decided to share the Voice, partly because material this good would be helpful, a gift for
other people, and partly because I was ready to do something useful with my life. After
offering my channeling to friends upon occasion and receiving enthusiastic feedback, we
decided to take the Voice public.
On March 7th, 1994, I channeled the Voice publicly for the first time. Attending were
some close friends we’d asked to come be with me. They were those I felt could be
supportive, safe to be with, and if I did something stupid, they wouldn’t hold it against
me. It was an odd thing being a channel, sitting with everyone’s eyes on me, and
knowing that it was time for me to relax and mostly disappear. I didn’t know what odd
things my body might be liable to do while I wasn’t paying attention.
The event went well, and so we had another and another. I felt comfortable enough to
suggest that my friends might invite others to come. So we opened up our house for a free
channeling one night each week. Large crowds of people showed up, most of whom we
didn’t know. They filled every chair and space in our living room, crowding together like
sardines. The Voice would begin with a short talk and then answer questions from the
I indeed made mistakes, or people asked questions that no answer came for. It was
awkward, but hey, it was a free event, and most of the answers were really good. Over
the following months, the quality of the information improved. I became more secure in
being in trance in front of people and trusting the Voice to do what they had to do. The
Voice explained themselves as a group that spoke as One, and although they had started
out as a small core group of 7, they’d kept adding members, including several ascended
masters and other indefinable trans-dimensional beings. People were fascinated.
Name That Entity!
After a couple of years of this “practice,” the Voice began speaking to a few private
clients. The Voice must have felt their difficulty relating to a disembodied group, because
they told us it was time for a name. “The Voice," they said, was too distant and remote.
The Voice did not immediately reveal a new name. They said they were working on it,
but were hindered by the dilemma of choosing a gender orientation. They had males,
females, and even some non-gender-specific beings in the group.
So, in a sense of whimsy - after all, it’s not good to take life too seriously - Daniel and I
decided to hold a "Name That Entity" contest. We told all our friends and clients that the
best name would bring the winner a free private channeling. Several people submitted
names, and we shared them with the Voice. Our favorite was “Luminon,” but Galexis
nixed it as still too remote. But before the contest was over, the Voice spoke to me
internally, while I was doing the laundry one afternoon. I heard distinctly the name
"Galexis." I guess the Voice had found a name that could not be pegged to either gender
definitively. The question of gender has indefinitely remained for later determination.
Many years later, we still call Galexis “they” because they have yet to decide upon a
From that point onward, Galexis was able to create and build a deeper connection with
our private channeling clients. Many became the “friends of Galexis,” and some still are
close to Galexis today. Galexis became warmer, closer, and more personal, developing
beautiful relationships with their clients.
We and Galexis Grow Together
As I have grown through the years, I’ve realized how any channel, especially one who
doesn’t go completely under, is the “bottleneck” for the information. My focus has been
to keep myself as ego-clear as I can, get out of the way as much as I can, and give
Galexis more free rein to love, touch, heal, and care for their friends. Galexis began to
have more fun, and I did, too. My health began to improve slowly, with occasional dips
into unpleasant valleys, but coming back up to always higher peaks. For that, I am
Galexis is still plural today, made up of many who speak as One. Galexis not only has
what I’d call their essential, seven member group, but they also call in experts in various
fields who tap my brain and memory better than I do! Sometimes, Galexis numbers in the
hundreds. That’s when they have what they call “parties,” where they join with the spirit
helpers and higher aspects of those to whom they are speaking. I have felt the air thicken
with spirit when I sit down in front of a larger group, with so many eager beings showing
up ready to love and play.
I feel so fortunate, lucky, grateful, and amazed to be having this experience. My life is
becoming more and more magical and going beyond the limits of what I could have
imagined only a few years ago. I go quickly and easily into trance now. I make some
private requests of Galexis as part of my induction. One is that I receive a healing so that
I have greater health with each channeling. Then Galexis takes over and my mouth
contorts to speak their pronunciation. After they say “farewell,” I come out of trance. My
eyes open and I return feeling more alert and refreshed than before. Now I no longer
have debilitating fatigue, and my health continues to improve with Galexis' help.
Then in 2006, it seemed, that we were called to go further than before. At that time,
Daniel and I were living in a beautiful home in Plantation, Florida. It was on an acre,
filled with native plant areas and bird and butterfly gardens. Although we had thought
that this was the oasis for our lives, a hurricane blew through and uprooted our magical
Avocado tree and thus closed its Faerie portal. The message was, “You are done here.”
Galexis said, “Your Destiny is calling.”
So Daniel and I sold our house, put our stuff in storage, bought a a big 5th Wheel RV and
a big truck to tow it, and hit the road. We traveled all over the USA, looking for wherever
destiny called us. We followed our noses around the country twice, visiting powerful
energy sites, bright and loving people, and giving Galexis workshops here and there.
After two years, we realized that California was the place to be. The LA area had the best
climate for us thin-blooded tropical Floridians . When we looked for a place to rent, every
magical possibility opened up for us. We found a wondrous great white house on top of a
mountain in Topanga with just the right floor plan, great ocean and mountain views, and
possibilities. In January of 2008, we moved from South Florida to California and settled
in the LA area. (For the story of our journey, along with pictures, please see our personal
We are thrilled to be here and feel the amazing power, creativity, and life force available
in California. We anticipate a great ride and a great celebration. Galexis now wishes to
reach more people and help support the great consciousness change happening on the
planet, and it seems more possible than ever. I invite you to share in this adventure with
us as the story of Galexis continues…
