Podcast cover

Susun Weed answers 90 minutes of herbal health questions followed by a 30 minute interview with guest, Galexis.

Galexis is a group of multi-dimensional non-physical beings who speak as One through the trance channel Ginger Chalford Metraux. Ph.D. They first came through Ginger in 1988 and went public in 1994, activating their Mission through private sessions and public seminars. 

Since then, they illuminated and supported people in their personal evolution so that they could take advantage of the Great Consciousness Shift that was kicked off in 2012 and that came to a pivotal evolutionary point in 2018. 

Their Mission has been to use the new consciousness energies coming in from the Light Future to teach people how to craft and manifest their own personal New Life in their own New World on a template of Love and Empowerment, Freedom, and Trust of/Reliance upon their Spiritual Team. 

But there's more. There is a greater Mission for us all that Galexis is helping us with, and that includes dreaming this New World for everyone, thus participating in the world's evolution as well. The goal is the Aquarian Age principle of the individual remaining distinct and luminous sharing radiance into the Collective and belonging in the Oneness of all beings.

About the channel, Ginger Metraux Ph.D. Ginger has been an astrologer, life coach, writer, and nutritionist before becoming a trance channel. Currently, channeling Galexis has enabled her to be "trained" by the group in medical intuition. She lives in Los Angeles with her husband, Daniel-the-Healer.
