I am on a mission to normalize that we are here to feel, heal, experience, connect and grow. I have transformed many darker sides of this journey into the most incredible life. I could imagine.

Through my intuitive teachings, real talks and guest interviews, I can help you as we help the world to love ourselves just a little bit more. Hey, guys, so in today's episode, I think it's gonna be really super fun. I have an awesome, amazing guest with us, Lexi Wilson, and we are going to be diving into her story. But more importantly, her jam of astrology business just as human stuff like being real, with what we're doing, how we do it, and how we can utilize all these different assets in our life as tools to just really help us have a easy human experience because sometimes the shits hard or you get stuff like laryngitis, and you just gotta roll with the punches. So, with that, Lexi, I want to like throw it over to you. Tell us a little bit about how you got to what you're doing today.
Lexie Wilson 1:27
Yes, well, thank you so much for just having me. I love love love being on podcast and having conversations with other intuitives because it's just always magical. So I'm so excited. And I'm like smiling so hard. But yeah. So you know, it's funny, it's kind of hard to like answer that question. Because there are so many series of events that happened that brought me to where I am today. But where I would definitely say it in terms of this leg of who I am as an intuitive business owner, as someone who was intentional about manifesting the things that I want. That journey really started probably at 30, which would be from the astrological perspective, the Saturn Return. And I had a really rough childhood and rough 20s. So I had to learn kind of how to stand on my own feet. I came from a background that was very, very abusive. And so I abuse was normal to me, like the way people talk to each other family members talk to each other, whether it was physical abuse, or spiritual abuse or emotional abuse, I was used to having someone always be in control, and use the emotional and spiritual manipulation to control everything I did. And so when I hit my 30s, or my 30th birthday, it I finally had to make a decision as I was forced, because of the fact that my mother and I got into such a huge argument. And it was at that moment that I realized I needed to stand up for myself. But in doing so it severed the relationship between her and I. And although that was that would turn out to be one of the healthiest things. It was literally the most impossible hardest year of my life. And yeah, it ended up leading into so many decisions i i was dependent on her because she was helping me out financially at the time. So when it happened, I ended up losing a lot of money. I ended up three months behind on my rent, and my lights were off, I was staying with friends, I was almost evicted. But it forced me into this place of realizing like I need help, I need something else. And I can't just stay on this mindset of thinking like this is life life is just people hurting you and everything falling apart, and you just kind of have to stick with it. I didn't want to believe that. And that began that journey to like, Well, what else is there to believe? That's a really quick run through.
Danielle Aime 4:14
That's okay. The cliff notes version. Well, totally different. Like thing, but do you know my big thing started at 30? Like really? So? Yeah, like, moving into this world, I guess is what I'll say. Like I had gradually had pieces and like little touches of it, but the big boom happened around 30 like life changing and I'm 35 now going on 36 So okay, I'm 36 Yeah. Yeah, it is
Lexie Wilson 4:42
because in terms of astrology, so. Okay, so Saturn is Saturn takes about 29 and a half to 30 years to rotate around the sun. So that's one year for Saturn is 29 and a half years of our life. And so when Saturn returns back to the same place that it was at when you were born, which usually happens around 29 and a half 59 and a half. And then if we're lucky, then 89 and a half. And Saturn rules over the harsh lessons and the challenges that we're going to face as well as the life purposes that we're here to kind of match and meet, which makes sense, a lot of the things that we end up finding challenging are the same things that we find purpose and meaning behind. And so yeah, and so that 30 A year is the first time that we experienced Saturn returning to the place of our birth, which now triggers that during the 30th year, it's about that independence of self and starting to truly get away from wherever you were. And being faced with whatever the if you're not living in your truest self, that year tends to be the roughest year because it's Saturn basically saying like, Hey, girl, is this what you want for life. And if it's not, then we're going to disrupt it, which causes a lot of turmoil and endings in the person's life. And so it's really tough, but and tough is relative, because if you've had a really tough life, then it might not feel so tough. But it does tend to be a rough year when you have your second Saturn Return that tends to be around that, you know, midlife crisis type of energy where the world who does it whoever doesn't believe in astrology, they call it the midlife crisis. But in astrology, it's like, no, it's your Saturn Return. So that second time is now am I living to the fullest of my abilities? Have I done the things that I want to actually do in this life? As I start to obviously, 60 is at the end of life, but it's not as young as 30 or 30 years, right? So you're starting to really think, am I living truly up to my potential? So these themes tend to come around so when someone tells me that their 30th year was also their year of their awakening, I'm like, oh, yeah, girl, I feel like
Danielle Aime 7:01
that's what's so cool about astrology is like, our I don't know, like, I'm not knowledgeable in it, but like, I'm familiar with it. And the fact of like, patterning and behaviors and all stuff, same thing, like it was mind blowing to me. In terms of astrology, like most people, like you open the newspaper, like as a kid, my mom's like, oh, let's read those trilogy sections, right? And then it's like, you know, I'm June 28. So I'm like, full blown butthole cancer.
Lexie Wilson 7:27
I'm a Capricorn.
Danielle Aime 7:29
I'm cancer. I'm a cancer son, Aries Moon, which is hilarious. I'm married to an Aries. Oh,
Lexie Wilson 7:37
well, that makes sense, though. Because Because your moon sign is your moon, your Venus and your Mars are more your moon is about your emotions. Your Venus is about your romantic love and your Mars is your like, visceral sexual passions. So a lot of times when our part when we, when we get together with our partners, they tend to match more with our moon or Venus or Mars. So that makes a lot of sense that he would have been in Aries and you would have connected well, and it
Danielle Aime 8:05
was funny. I didn't even know there was like all these other things. And it was like years ago, I mean, like 2011 2010 And one day, he's like, you've got to look up your moon sign you've got to have Aries mean, man, on that note of knowing all these things, so for one did astrology come after the big boom? Or did you already slowly be introduced to it prior?
Lexie Wilson 8:29
I have always been interested interested in astrology, which is really crazy, because so I grew up in a call. And so yeah, I know, when I tell my story, it's very odd because it's like literally just like BAM hit people with one two's everywhere.
Danielle Aime 8:44
But oh, not surprised me girl.
Lexie Wilson 8:47
So I grew up in a call. I was third generation in it, my grandmother, my mom was raised in it, and then she raised me in it. And the majority of my family is we're all raised in it, the kids now we're all kind of finding our way but some of us are still inside of it. And so the first time I found astrology was through a friend of mine, who was still a friend of mine, who her mom was very, like very hippie kind of biomes and I loved going to her home all the time because she always had all these like statues and like really cool thing. She was so chill. And she told me about astrology and I might have been 12 or 13 when that happened. And yeah, and I fell in love because I felt like it the especially because the way she introduced it to me it wasn't the horoscopes like in the Cosmo magazines. It was the full like, this is a book this is cool. So I was I really was intrigued by it. But then I brought home the book, and my parents found it and I got the like, beating of my life over that because it was the devil you're bringing demons into the house. It was horrible. It terrified me the way that my parents got me got so angry. However, I am a Leo moon. So that fire,
that that passion in me also got ignited because I felt rebellious. Like I felt like how dare you tell me that's something that actually is making me feel really comforted is not good. And so I hid my love of like astrology and I only really studied it when I would go to the library, I would go to the library every day to kind of get out of Get out of my house because I was homeschooled, so I was very, very sheltered. So every day, I would go to the library, and then there I could read and I would just stay there for hours until the nighttime. And then whenever I would go to my friend's house, I would also kind of talk about all these cool spiritual stuff there. So once I got into my 20s, I had also went to a, a religious college from the religion that I grew up in. So once I graduated from that school, and now was in my 20s, I had this like freedom, there was no the college that I went to, we were required to go to church, we were required to do like things. So once I graduate, it was the first time that I wasn't being controlled to old when I have to go to church and I have to get so many reports or things like that. So I had the freedom to like buy books and buy stuff, I was too scared to buy an Oracle deck. So I didn't do that for a few years. But I did get astrology books. And then on my 30th birthday when everything really fell apart, that's when I ended up leaving my home. I lived in Florida and I moved to Chicago. And when I moved to Chicago and I got a job out there, I felt completely and totally free because I was no longer even in the vicinity of my family. That it was at that point that I kind of refound my love with astrology and was allowed to bring it into my home without fear that demons were going to come in because I have these books and I found a Sister Circle randomly through meet up who they also really loved astrology. And so the universe did all these little things that kind of brought me comfort. And that's how it ended up becoming so part of my life at 30.
Danielle Aime 12:20
Yeah, I mean, like, it gives me chills. Like, it's so amazing. Like one this could be like a Lifetime movie.
I know. Like, I mean, seriously, I think that's amazing. Like it, like the trials and tribulations that you went through. Yeah, like this huge release. And then I call them like, the gingerbread trail, like the universe leaves us like along the way through the trauma and stuff that we experience. Like, it gives us a little, even if it's like a pinhole of light, like, we don't know what it's there for. And then eventually, like, we start chipping away inside that cave. And we realize like there's a whole world out there and that world begin to create, like so. I think your story is incredibly viewed, like being honest, like not just nice. Like, that's really beautiful. That like just your energy. And fun fact, guys, like I just was like drawn to like Lexi's energy, and I just like randomly messaged her one day. Like, I really you have this beautiful magnetic quality that like in so many ways had been building itself for years. And like when it was time, like, here you are, and you have to shine yourself to the world in such an incredibly beautiful way. I mean, that's amazing. And then that story is so heroic, not in the form of like trying to be the hero, but I'm not even trying to be the survivor. You were just living like, How can I live? How can I find and like, I think it's so inspirational. Like I really do it and like so tell me now the next layer, what got you to go from wherever working to then starting to want to work for yourself. Like how did that transition? Yeah,
Lexie Wilson 13:57
well, you know, it's so interesting. So I I am a former therapist, that's what I got my master's Okay, training, right. So that's where I technically have like, those were those student loans are for girls. And and then when everything happened after my 30th year, I mean, obviously just like many of people in their 20s we graduate, we have all these hopes and we're like, Yeah, we're gonna change the world. And then we get a job and they don't pay us. They make us work till we're, you know, blue in the face. And we're underappreciated and I am such I am a Capricorn through winters. I am a workaholic. I love every when I love something, I love it. And I get all the way in. So I was working all the time. And I eventually though live both living in Florida and working in social services. There were so many injustices that I saw against minorities, against immigrants against people who didn't speak English, and I couldn't. I'm a daughter of immigrants. I am a black woman. I cannot I realized like I couldn't work in this field and be the face of trauma for so many children. And even though I wanted to change the system from within it, I, it's very difficult to do that, and not end up playing the politics and the games and all that stuff, in addition to the fact that because I wasn't getting paid very well, I was still dependent on my family to support me, even though I have this full time, big girl job. So when I moved to Chicago, one I knew I didn't want to go back into social services, because I didn't want to deal with all the tape. And also, I mean, it was Chicago, so I was not interested in going into social services. So one of the things that I love to do is executive administrative kind of work, like I love, love, love that stuff. I love getting on the phone. I love talking to people when they come in the office. And I'm like, Hey, girl, so I'm very like, as you can tell, just like, extroverted. So I got an office job. And girl, I, I didn't know exactly how to manifest at that time. So it wasn't intentional. But it was intentional in the sense that there was a piece of me that knew I wasn't going to work in social services, I didn't want a job that wasn't going to let me be able to take care of myself, because I knew I didn't want to go back to that fear of, am I gonna get evicted? Can my lights stay on? Like, I knew that I couldn't do that. And I didn't want to do it in Chicago, of all places. So the I had signed up with a temp agency. And I let them know like, these are, this is the type of job I want. This is the salary I want. And when I went in for the interview, they liked me so much that they didn't even give me the job that I was technically, therefore, they gave me another job, which was $15,000 higher in salary than the job that I had applied for. Right. So I was like, Oh my gosh, and it was exciting, because it was a marketing company. And I would work with, they've made collectible items for different brands like Marvel, and Disney, which are all my favorite.
So it was great, because I had no marketing experience at all. But it was just my willingness to learn my personality and my commitment and letting them know like I learned quickly, I will work hard for you. And I was so excited because I knew the brands like I am such a nerd. Like I told you, I was homeschool. So I was a nerd. And I love Disney. I love Marvel, I love Star Trek, I love Star Wars. So I knew everything about these brands in and out, which gave me the opportunity to win the when the opportunity came, I could really rise to the occasion. And so because of that, that gave me the freedom to make more money than I had ever made in my life. And that one action kind of moves me into this space of like, Man, that was really, it wasn't easy, because it was so hard to drive all the way up from Florida, get a place get a job. But it was easy in the sense that all I did was go to an interview, and just hope that I could get a job that I enjoyed. And I got it and I got more money. And that kind of spurred this whole like, what if there's more to that? Like, what if it wasn't just a random coincidence that that all aligned the way that it did. And so I started looking into especially because at that point, I was looking at astrology stuff. So I wanted to know, is there a way to kind of manipulate energy to make it be what you want? Right? Yeah. And so and this is the beautiful part about being your co creator with the universe. So you're not responsible for like creating everything. You can just make your wishes be known and the universe will work in tandem with you. And so I believe that because I was in this mindset of going, Wow, that was actually relatively easy to do. I wonder what else is out there? I believe that the universe then was like, Oh, good. She's wondering. And so all of these little things, such as me wanting to make new friends and then getting on meetup.com and finding a spiritual goddess circle group. And I was like, What's a goddess circle? That led to then meeting a Sister Circle, which that was amazing because we met every Monday night. We would sing songs together, we would pull cards together, we would. I mean, it really was a beautiful space for me to dive deep into the world of spirituality with the comfort of friendship, which was something that I needed since I was trained to believe that all of this was wrong. Yannick Yeah, exactly. So it was, it felt really scary to do on my own and it was in that safe space with those women who I'm still friends with today, that I was able to find my own beliefs and find strength in my tools like saging like Oracle readings like astrology and taking it to another level. So from that space, after working at my job for a year, I started to realize I, I wanted to work for myself instead of having them control my schedule, because my spirituality was awakening so much that I wanted to start to teach. But I couldn't figure out like, how could I do this as a full time thing. But at the same time, I remember literally one day of sitting at my desk and saying, This is the last job I'm ever going to have like, I'm not going to work after this. So I'm going to figure out how to how to make this happen. And then I think, Oh, that was crazy. The I was watching Netflix. And one day, the secret was was recommended to me. Yeah, is what I mean, like the universe when you make your phone up? Oh, sure. And I had never heard of the secrets. I was like, Oh, I think I did. I saw it in Sex in the City with Samantha's character, right. So I had heard, but I didn't really, so I watched it. And that was, that was where I was like, this is how I'm going to do it. Like, I am going to figure out how to manifest this thing. And so that's when I started changing my affirmations to things that I wanted, I started working with crystals, I started intentionally creating the energy in my life that this was what I was going to manifest. And, and then eventually, through a series of events at my job, it became clear that it was time for me to leave. And so I went ahead and put in my notice. And when I did, the good part of that is it forced me to have to now really come up with a plan for making money as a spiritual teacher and a coach. And so I started using Facebook at the time to do live videos, and just start teaching about the stuff that I was learning about. And then that led to people asking more about well, do you do like coaching? And I was like, yeah, no. And so that's kind of how and it's since evolved several times over, because that was I was 31 When I left and now I'm 36. So it's definitely evolved over time. But that's the long story of how I got to this place of finally working for myself.
Danielle Aime 22:13
Yeah, well, also another commonality. So mine after I started shifting, so I did business prior. My background is in graphic design, and I got a master's in business. And then I was just doing like, I had also another side random side, but I had a stamp store online, wooden custom rubber stamp store from a start, I started my little online business in 2008. And I finally figured out my little niche was wooden rubber stamps in 2011. I had it for 2017. And that was the year I also started spiritually teaching on Facebook through live streams. And I just was like teaching a youth that it and I was thinking that earlier today. I was like how did i Oh, I had so much stuff to talk about. It was like everything was learning. Yes, it's calm, and I could fluidly so easily just teach it and then I think because it's like a relatable thing. We're not like weigh you know, all their, you know, like glam glam. Thank you, man here i on you're there. And I was always like, Yo, homie, let's, let's talk, let's talk, let's sit in the living room, let's have a conversation person or person, I'm not better than you. I'm not more than you. We're just, we're just here to human trying to figure out this life. And it's like, that was that portion for me that I noticed naturally, a lot of the things that are carried, I just want it to bring forward. And so I imagine that's kind of what started to happen for you. Was it a matter a matter of like, I mean, for me, I didn't expect I didn't plan this because I came from like, let's make pretty graphics and websites and strategies and such. And then all of a sudden, I'm working with somebody that wants a business. And yet we then we're having to dive all the way left side because we're talking about like self conscious trauma, unworthiness, and then like I had gifts that I didn't know, and we're talking about, like, people get locked in chambers and stuff. And I'm like, Oh, this might have everything to do with why you don't wanna be seen. Right? So like, did you have that kind of thing to like, Did you plant like, do you do like Did Did something happen with clients that then you started to just naturally like, incorporate the aspect of astrology as a tool for them? Or did you automatically do that?
Lexie Wilson 24:20
I think what Okay, so that's a really, that's interesting. Let me think on that, because,
Danielle Aime 24:27
or you might find that as well today. Yeah. I came out.
Lexie Wilson 24:30
i Okay. So when I first started, I was very like clinical on my approach, because I had come from a therapy room. So I was very like, Okay, I'm going to do an intake and then I'm going to do this and I'm gonna establish what their values are, and let's go over what their goals are. So it was very, very clinical, just like I did in therapy. But the the challenge was, I knew that although I still love therapy, I'm a big supporter of therapy. I also knew that many of the issues that I had struggled with from my traumas from childhood, that therapy alongside my spiritual practices was what brought me relief. So even though with my clients, I was still in the woo closet, I didn't want to come out as like super spiritual. At the same time, I also knew that I was doing them a disservice by not telling them that I really like crystals and tapping and past life regressions. And like, I knew that it was like, I need to teach them that these are other tools that you can utilize to support you in true healing, and sustainable healing. Because that's what everybody of course, desires. And so I started with some of my my clients that were already openly Whoo, it was with them that I was like, Are you open to like a sound healing? Like, do you want to do that? And they'd be like, Yeah, okay. And so even though forward facing in terms of my marketing, it was very clinical, like, I piety coach, and this is what I do. Behind the scenes. I was super, super, like, do you want to put oracle cards, like, let's look at heart and you know, and so over time, though, I think I, oh, you know, what it was, I got a coach, I got a coach and in the in working with her, that's what she helped me to recognize, because I got kind of tired of the types of clients I was bringing in. And she was like, Okay, well, if you understand the law of attraction, you are attracting people who are afraid to like step into their true selves, because you are afraid to separate. So I was like, Oh, damn, hurricane and so. And so that was a really good lesson for me to start openly owning my my faith. And it's still something that I'm learning to this day, because I still find that I do get afraid sometimes of being judged, especially by like my family and stuff. But I also just know that my power comes from standing in my truth. And so that was what really started me into recognizing, like, I have to start being honest about what is truly healed me, and especially considering the fact that I have struggled like I have I self harmed, I've attempted suicide multiple times, I I've dealt with the child abuse, I've, I've had so many traumas against me that at this point, it's like, Am I really going to let fear of judgment about my faith be the thing that takes me out? Like, no, so I that's, that's where it was like, Okay, if I could get through so much of this other stuff, I gotta figure out how I'm gonna get on this other side. And that's what led me to finally starting to open up but like I said, I don't want to make it seem like now I'm, I'm healed. And I'm confident about it. Because girl, I still get very scared to post in my stories, my, you know, spiritual, full moon routine, you know, or something like that. I still get scared, but I just have to kind of push through it until it gets to a place of feeling competent. And I find that when I do that, that's when I also I like I said, I attract the clients that I love to work with, because I show up in that energy. And then they're like, oh, yeah, I want to talk to you. And I'm like, All right.
Danielle Aime 28:16
Exactly. Well, and I have, and that's what I always told, like, my people always are like, I so I speak light language. And I didn't know love light language, and like a channel and my voice will change and all this stuff. And so for me, I was like, I was I was so I also did Ayahuasca. So like, I had all kinds of random. Okay, yeah, like one thing I asked was way before, like my spiritual 30 thing before but a couple of years before so like, I've had all these little mini me along the way. And the whole encompassing element for me was even back when I was, um, I guess normal. Yeah, whatever. I don't know what you call it, because that was not normal. But you know what I mean? Back in those days. Like, I was then so worried about like, what people thought of me and trying to blend in and stand out because I was I had like, a very peculiar personality and it's like, I always knew that about myself. But it's not that it's bad like now I'm like, I like when someone is like you're kind of weird. I'm like yes good. I'm being myself um, but no, I do I get frozen with fear at times because I wasn't looking to be like, hey, I want to use my gifts and my business Hey, let me go channel I was like, one day I'm on a call and I'm like, oh shit, what was that? You know, or it would just happen and I would have gifts like just happened and I'm like, Ah, and then I what I do I try to go back to let's do strategy everyone. Anyone right? Not 10 tips. And then the universe is like, Are you fucking kidding me? Like, are you kidding me? And I'll Funny story, everybody. Funny story. I was kind of going that last week and then they took my voice from me. Oh, you see cuz they're like, haven't you learned just ignore ugly
Lexie Wilson 30:06
and see you're so intuitive. I mean, the fact that you are I mean, I could see what the Aries moon that that would what desire strategy because that's the goddess of war so she's pretty like intense about strategy and coming up with a plan and taking action and going out and doing it. But the cancer is like hella hella intuitive. And so for that to kind of spur within you and just come out of nowhere. Yeah,
Danielle Aime 30:32
like knocked at the door one day and was like, hello, I'm here and I'm not leaving and I'm like, oh my god, no. But now I'm like, Alright, fine.
Lexie Wilson 30:41
Well, hang on. You have to because it's so much it's so much more fun. I feel like when
Danielle Aime 30:47
it is it really it really truly is. And that's what I taught so I made this vow to myself, because like my husband's parents are I'd be the Satan spawn you know, kind of if they really knew what I did. And for a while because where I live, I live in Louisiana but I'm from New Orleans and I live kind of in a rural area now and they're all very like devout Christians you know? What they're like a certain place of all this stuff is witchcraft and all this stuff is Satan and again the devil summon and out of me because I have a crystal and the devil cards also. Oh god if they probably saw this thing I guess they think I'm which are right. But anyway, I got to this place. So we built our new house last year, and I started putting crystals like in every room because I have a whole whole thing. That cabinet of my husband jokes called the witch cabinet. While we were still in my last house I had a tape it because some kid went inside of it. Like crystal essence sprays and we like walked in the house like oh shit, somebody want the cabinet. Because we don't want to scare the buyers. Right? So anyway, I once I got here, I was like Nathan, I was like I was my husband. I was like, I can't hide anymore, man. I'm like, I can't hide. I'm like, This is who I am. And I'm like, even if it has to be like the first like sentence that I talked to somebody like our neighbors are like, totally religious. And one day I'm like, Look, I'm kind of like a psychic. And I do weird stuff. I was like, Can you accept me as I am, I'm not looking for you to kind of my sad but like, I don't go to church, and I don't want to go to church, and I don't do all these things. And she's like, alright, and I was like, Alright, and that's what I call my brain. And this is what I want you guys to hear. And just like Lexi said, it's like when we really truly show up as ourselves for ourselves. And it does, it feels a little uncomfortable only because it's a world we didn't exist in in this time. It's a world that has been told to us by other people like Nope, don't go there or it's weird, you're gonna stand out because that's so bad to stand out. It's not. And you do you will magnetically attract those that want to be around you, as well, as I've experienced magically transform those around you that may not have had interest in it. And magically one day do. And you can carry the most amazing, phenomenal conversations with people. And then you also randomly meet people on Instagram, and you have this connection with them. And that is the magic of the universe and the magic that we carry inside, you know, actually Oh

100% And that loneliness that a lot of people feel. A lot of times, it's like, when people tell me like I really struggle with just feeling isolated, I feel really alone, I feel like I don't have friends. And yet, they might truly physically have people living in their homes, or they do actually have friends. But if you are not being authentic to who you are spiritually, that is where that loneliness is coming from. It serves as a beacon to help you to actually come forward in your truth. And by doing so then it makes it easier for you to find women like us where this is actually where you're going to feel that sense of wholeness, because it's true allowance to be yourself. So if you are that person who is struggling with loneliness, and you do feel like I've tried so many different things to make new friends, why is it so tough? I urge you to really look into whether or not you have spiritually fulfilled yourself and are being honest about what you actually believe because that in and of itself, although it might help you to not be judged by the people that are currently in your life. It is also creating that inner tension that's causing you to feel loneliness, because you're not being yourself, you've abandoned yourself. So that loneliness serves as a tool to get you back to that level of of self containment and then you can manifest what you desire, which is connection with other people like you.

Yeah, I couldn't agree more. And the same thing I've had people ask this question and if somebody is asking this question now listening is where do you start, just experiment go explore things, you know, like Lexi said she always found, you know, astrology kind of fascinating and stuff. Well, I've always just used and asked questions about everything. I questioned everything and those questioning everything. Like I went to Catholic High School. And I remember one day coming home when I was like, he was a freshman or something. And it was the first time I connected with my dad. We're like no commonalities and one day just Like, data just don't get it and like, they tell you all these things like all these rules about who said that, like, where did that come from? And my dad had the biggest smirk on his face. He's like, let me tell you about being agnostic. And so like that was like, I call it like my gateway in my dad a joke. Well, he's not with me anymore. He died last year, but it was like he was like my activator. And so that's what I'm getting at. It can start with a simple question. That was the point to that it can start with a simple question. It can start with a simple curiosity. Like i Mother Ayahuasca called me for two years before I went and flew to Peru and did Ayahuasca the spirit called me for years before I would actually answer the door to listen. And I'll tell you, the biggest shift I had on my gifts came in the year when I was 30. All I did, I remember, I wasn't doing anything spiritually. I wasn't doing anything spiritually inclined, but what I was doing was choosing myself, I was really choosing myself in a way and I had overcome lots of therapy and trauma and all the shit that uncovered itself and still did like over the last six, five years since but it's like I just looked at myself in a new way and said anything is possible, because I am in it. And I shit you not it was like three weeks later that like that knock hit the door. And well actually, it wasn't even that at an incident where I was supposed to just be a normal human happened with somebody was in a mastermind like retreat with I don't even know. And then I read her wasn't planning on it. We were just having a human conversation about mind mapping. Yeah, just want a weird soul shit with her. And then sitting on the plane long story short next to my husband. I just looked at him. I was like, life's never the same again. And it was literally not because I in the pursuit of other than in the pursuit of myself. Yeah. I think if we stop trying to look always outside of ourselves for the answer. And when when we take the time to look at ourselves inside and realize, like, what we contain and what we have, like, that's when you guys's world starts to change, you know? Yeah, and then just shine. I love that. I love it so much. Yeah. So it was really great having you on the show. I thought your little paragraph prior was like a great conclusionary element to have just guys like we are we are if you are listening to us, you I call us the others I call us the the movement makers, the change makers, it's just that we are before the head of our time right now. So it seems like we're somewhere else. It seems like the world doesn't fit us but the world is opening so much to fit us because so many more people are transforming into their true selves. It's not transforming to our side. They're transforming into their selves. This is not a cult, this is not a religion. This is a form of seeing yourself so unadulterated Lee purely you. And we're so unique in our creation, in our design in our psychology, makeup, in our fingerprints. Every school

when you look at astrology, it's interesting. So one of the things about millennials is our Pluto is in Scorpio. So for every Okay, so Pluto takes a very long time to rotate around the sun, because it's so far away. And so the gravitational pull isn't as strong. So with that, it'll stay in a particular sign for many, many years. And with that, what we call that is we call it a generational planet as opposed to personal planets. So personal planets are things like your sun, sign your moon, sign your mercury, because they move faster. So for the millennial generation, and a little bit of the 90 will know that still millennials will know that later millennial know they would be Gen Z. But some of them are also Pluto and Scorpio. So for many of the millennials, we have our Pluto actually was in Scorpio at that time, and Scorpio rules over transformation healing, death, rebirth, sexuality, Shadow Work, as well as like the dark side of spirituality. And the dark side doesn't have to mean something like scary. It's just the parts of the spirituality that are not as as comfortable and as pretty as the lighter side of spirituality which Pisces rolls over that side of it. So with that being said, for the you look at our generation and how much we demand change. Also poodle rolls over government. So we demand change in our government, we demand accountability. We are constantly transformation. We are part of the information age you and I we grew up with, you know, at the beginning of YouTube and Facebook and and cell phones and all these things becoming normal parts of our lives. But by that time we were in middle school and high school so we had years where that was not a significant part of our life. And we got to grow up with that change of like the baton of lifetime. So with that, it makes a lot of sense why there's a lot of people awakening at this time because we are the generation that awakens the If the true depth of healing and death and rebirth and bringing that to the forefront and then demanding accountability and change, we're doing it in our government. We're doing it in our world. This is why the last few years I truly believe have been so transformational. It's a call. Yeah. But it's also part of our we were born for that. So that's why so many of us now are getting into this place where we do want to find out how do we take our power back? How do we which Pluto also rules over power? So how do we take our power back? How do we get our our freedom back? And how can we be true to who we are? And that's why I believe so many of us are asking those questions. So if you are, like Daniel has said, it's like, allow yourself to dive into the question instead of just going well, I don't know how to answer that. So I'm just going to not think about it. Go ahead and explore it. If you find yourself seeing, you know, if your friends are talking about spiritual things, or talking about more to life and wanting to intentionally create their outcomes, have those conversations, don't shy away from it. If there's fear there, look into your fear. Why are you afraid? Is it your programming from growing up in the society you grew up in, in the church you grew up in, in the family unit you grew up in? What actually makes you feel happy, alive, abundant, free? I answer those questions, because it's in the process of answering that you begin the process of finding out who you are, and there's never an ending to it, we're always going to be in a state of transformation because we are the Pluto and Scorpio generation and especially if you are a Scorpio, you're definitely gonna be changing all the time. So it's like you're
Danielle Aime 41:49
Lexie Wilson 41:52
There's no end to it. But just allow yourself to actually dive deep into the waters of spirituality because I'm positive that if you have been questioning the peace that you seek is inside of that search. It's not by ignoring that. Yep. Yeah.
Danielle Aime 42:08
I love that. I know. We're complex, yet such simplistic, complex creatures. How can you be simplistic and complex we just are so simple yet complex, because the answer usually is so flippin simple. But we are like, instead of just walking across the street, we won't take a plane a bar, right rental cars, a nap to hotel stays. And then like, oh, wait wasn't here before? Yeah, exactly. Work out there in three minutes. Like I think that journey, it is, like you said a couple times. Is this the same thing? Guys? Like, look, I have I have come into many spiritual gifts. I have had all these different things happen. But I'm still learning. I'm still going through something right now. Yeah.
Lexie Wilson 42:57
Yeah. Because like just a bunch of lessons like this is yeah, this is what it is. I've heard people call it Earth school. And I really like oh, that's neat. All right. I love that. Because then it's like, yeah, this is our soul came here to this earth to learn the lesson. And the challenges that we face, allow us to see who we really are. So whenever you are going through a hard time, that is the moment that you actually get to see the Goddess within, when everything is cool, and it's all peaceful, and it's fine. That's wonderful. That's the time that you get to really explore the abundance that you've that you've created for yourself. But it's in these moments of challenges that where we don't feel so abundant, and we don't always feel so safe that we actually get to see, what do you really made of what is your face? Do you really believe in yourself? Do you really trust the universe. So even though it sucks to go through those shitty as times at the same time, it's like, I wouldn't know how powerful I was if I did not go through the things that I've gone through and then come out on the other side stronger for it. And that's where my attitude towards difficulty I don't love it. Like I said, I don't live in the space of like, yeah, a challenging time. But, but at the same time, I do remind myself after I've had a good cry and after I've like, you know, I don't know taken an audible to relax. I'm like, after that then I'm like, You know what, this is teaching me that I'm a bad bitch and I'm about to show up. So it's like allow yourself to see those challenges with as permission to actually shine
Danielle Aime 44:32
very much so I'm gonna leave it on that no, because I think that's a phenomenal way to leave it it is polarity of our life of ourselves, but it's only what you want to like accomplish that yourself grows, you know, helps build resilience and relatability I love that.
