Ginger Chalford Metraux, Channel for Galexis
Channel for Galexis, Talk Show Host
The Story of Galexis from Ginger, The Channel for Galexis In the early 1980s, Daniel (my husband) and I consulted regularly with spirit through two channels. We spoke with various spirit guides and entities—most notably Lazaris. The feedback was very helpful for our spiritual processes. Unfortunately, one channel moved away and Lazaris sessions were increasingly in demand, so it became more difficult to get a reading or consultation. This left an information gap in our lives, and we recognized that we had become dependent on outside assistance. In an effort to be more metaphysically self-sufficient, we decided to seek simple intuitive information with one another. One of us would lie down, relax, and tune into spirit helpers known as “Counselors” while the other asked questions that required a "yes" or "no" answer. It was up to the one tuned into spirit to determine which answer the Counselors were giving. Although both of us could get "yes" and "no" answers, a tediously slow way to do kinesiology!, I found it easier. In time, I emerged as the “natural.” Not only did I get the basic black-and-white answers, but I also began to see pictures and hear words. Daniel gave up his pursuit of receiving messages when we began to concentrate on my development and how to ask better questions. The quality of answers depends on the quality of question. Over time, I began to receive more and more detailed interpretations of the answers. This helped to clarify a few of the concerns or interests we had, but I couldn’t go deep enough to get to core emotional issues. I noticed that if I had any issue or "charge" about the answer, it would be very hard to receive the answer, or it would be skewed in some way. To develop greater clarity of information, I attended a class on channeling given by renowned Spiritualist trance medium Alexander Murray of New York City. He pointed out that I had been "mental channeling," or relaying information from the guides. He urged me and the other students to let spirit guides speak directly through us instead, and become true mediums. So we learned how to connect with our "gatekeeper," or the one who oversees who and what comes through us. During a meditation in class, I felt a light open a vertical channel in my head and a resonant bright voice spoke through me. I could feel the vibration of the voice speaking words inside my head. This was Irene, my first gatekeeper. Over the new few months, I began to directly channel several personal spirit helpers for Daniel and myself. One would speak, and then leave. My head would drop and I’d nearly transition out of trance, but then another one would come through. My head would lift up again, and back in I would go. In a single session, as many as five or six would come through in succession. Going in and out tired me, but the information Daniel received was clearer and more precise. He felt their caring and love energy more deeply. The material lost the "clutter" of personal ego interference and needs. In August, 1988, I had a session with trance channel Paul McClain, now known as Mataare. In the beginning attunement portion of the reading, Paul commented that there was someone who especially wanted to come through and work with me. I was surprised, but pleased and thought it was probably yet another friendly guide. However, as I was channeling for Daniel a couple of weeks later, a new, more powerful presence emerged. The voice of this spirit was deeper and more vibrant. When Daniel asked, "What is your name?" The entity said, “We are a group and we do not have a name." So Daniel simply called them "the Voice." After this, the Voice came through more often and began attuning my energies each time. Sometimes I could feel their loving presence very powerfully. The information appeared to be of higher quality as my trance became deeper. The Voice explained that they were blending with one another so that I didn't have to go through all the "ins and outs" of entity traffic. One of the group would be the spokesperson and hold the “microphone.” At first, Daniel could hear a difference in the accents and speaking styles as one spirit handed the next one the mike. Throughout this phase, I still felt uncertain about whether all the information was just made up by me! I was anxious. Was the information correct or was it ego stuff? What if I shared this with people who took it seriously and it was untrue or inapplicable? I would be responsible for them and their outcomes. This worry interfered with the depth of my trance and sometimes brought me right back up and out. The Voice suggested that I would be less likely to come to surface consciousness during the trance or fall into ego concerns if I were more secure in the knowledge that what was coming through was "real." So how did they convince me? They took on an accent that I simply couldn't imitate, and this allowed me to relax and be unconcerned about what was coming through. Consequently, as I got more out of the way of the information, it became more useful and significant in our lives. By 1994, the information being received had become so specific and transformational that both of us were experiencing amazing and exciting leaps of personal development. We determined that the material was so valuable; it would be helpful for others, too. I experimented and channeled here and there for friends. The enthusiastic feedback encouraged me. On March 7th, 1994, we gathered some close friends to sit in a circle with us in our living room while I channeled the Voice publicly for the first time. I was self-conscious. To channel, I must sit exposed in front of everybody while my conscious mind must let go and disappear. What would my body do while I’m not aware of it? Would I simply embarrass myself? All ego concerns evaporated during the evening. The Voice and my friends seemed to enjoy speaking with each other. After a series of these circles, I became more relaxed about the process. Although my original purpose to channel was to broaden my and Daniel’s spiritual awareness, I wondered if this could become my profession. At the time, I suffered from terrible chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia. I had already closed my astrology practice, because readings had become too strenuous (hard to imagine, but they were!). I asked myself: “Can I sit down, relax, and let the Voice talk?” The answer was easy: “Yes, that I can do!" But I had seen the old spiritualist mediums and other channels suffer obesity and tremendous physical problems from doing channeling work. I concluded that I was only willing to channel for others if my health were improved with every session. The Voice agreed and included a healing in every session specifically for me, too. With a new life choice finalized, I needed to practice if I were to do more public work. We offered free channeling one day per week in our living room. Word spread from friends who told friends, and soon there were large crowds who filled every chair and space! We didn't even know most of them, and weren’t sure that was what we wanted! The Voice began each evening with a short talk and then answered questions from the group. Over the following months, the quality of the information improved as my trance deepened. The Voice explained themselves as a group that spoke as One. Although they started out as a small core group of 12—which included several of our favorite spirit guides from our Mataare sessions—the Voice kept adding members, including several ascended Masters and other indefinable trans-dimensional beings. I remained quite cognizant of the fact that regardless of how high and amazing the guides were, I was the bottleneck. It was my ability to get out of the way of the transmissions that determined the quality of the information. With practice during the weekly gatherings, and with a growing number of private readings, I found the Voice’s capacity to answer questions precisely grew by leaps and bounds. The information kept becoming more profound. Eventually the Voice said it was time for a name, suggesting that they felt the "Voice" to be too distant and kept people from feeling connected closely to them. The Voice did not immediately reveal the new name though, so we decided it would be fun to hold a "Name That Entity" contest! Several people submitted names, and the winner would receive a free private channeling. Before the contest was ended, the Voice spoke to me one afternoon while I was doing some housework. "Galexis," they simply said. We selected the name that was our favorite anyway, and I gave a private channeling for her. From that moment on, Galexis forged deeper connections with those who came for consultations. Those who spoke with Galexis found the relationship becoming warmer, closer, more personal, and real. Over time, Galexis added additional members. The One can now reach into the hundreds when they are speaking with groups. Most of the members have had human lifetimes. As of the last count, all come from within this Universe. There are Ginger’s personal or private guides, and usually those who are specific to the individuals who speak with Galexis. There are those who are called Ascended Masters, angels, Extra Terrestrials, spirits of Nature, and more. Galexis is quite private about who their members are. Perhaps this is to keep Ginger from getting overwhelmed or too ego-involved. It could also be to reduce the tendency clients have to form expectations about the sub-entities. There are some Galexis members who are well-known and frequent guests with other channels across the country! Galexis refers to themselves as “us,” but those who speak with Galexis often call them “she” because of my female voice. When asked if they are predominantly masculine or feminine, Galexis cannot answer. This is because on the other side (i.e. beyond the physical body), masculine and feminine energies are either balanced, or gender is not relevant to the information given. I come out of each trance feeling more alert and refreshed than when I entered it. I no longer have a debilitating condition and my health continues to improve with the help of Galexis. I have realized that channeling is not my final mission, but is definitely a piece of it. My wish is to expand my consciousness as much as possible in order to complete my work here and return Home to God/Goddess/All That Is. Therefore, my larger destiny work must be the work of my conscious self. Meanwhile, my relationship with Galexis, always loving, freeing and empowering for me, is pivotal. Working with them is an important and precious piece of my life journey, for which I am deeply grateful. I will continue to channel Galexis until such time as they or I no longer wish to. That is not going to happen anytime soon. I do not want to interfere with the beautiful relationships that Galexis has developed with wonderful people who are our clients, workshop attendees, and dear friends.
