I could be whatever I wanted to be if I trusted that music, that song, that vibration of God that was inside of me.
My parents combined their names to create mine, because it means bearer of light.
That's my mission; to enlighten and inspire, bridge gaps, and expand your God-box. I reconnect people to themselves, the Holy Spirit, and Creation.
My degree in Spiritual Formation has molded me into a woman who will listen to your soul.
I'm a transition expert.
If you're going through a big transition (marriage, opening a business, turning 30|40|50, or seeking self-discovery of any kind) than one-on-one mentoring & spiritual direction allows me to offer you personal guidance through the twists and turns. I lead and empower people to unwrap their true selves and guide them towards their genuine purpose: a loving relationship with themselves, others, and the Trinity.
I love the Enneagram. I am an 8w9/9w8, if you know what that means. And I'm a E/INFJ.
Many people say they’re spiritual and not religious... me too. But I don’t think a lot of people even know what that means.
For some, it means "I’m avoiding church and have a lot of questions about the Bible."
For some, that means "I’m super 'woo' & don’t want to scare you off."
For some, it holds depth: "I’m dedicated to a spiritual practice that is so engrained into my being, that it’s part of me, but if I say what religion I identify with most, you'll judge me."
No matter which fits you, I'm your girl.
I believe everything is spiritual and God is way bigger then we can fathom. I believe that God is in the transformation business and meets us when we are already open to change, and this might be when we're feeling most broken. I see people hit rock bottom and recover better than ever, all the time.
I walk with people though these transitions, ask big questions, help them cleanse and heal, and embrace the mystery. You just found a director, guide, and Spirit-led intuitive who wants to catapult your life. I just can't help have that effect on you. It's who I am.
Alena's Spiritual Timeline:
I was brought up Christian, both protestant and charismatic.
I got a scholarship to a secular collage but I couldn't justify spending four years studying anything other then God, so I got a BA in Religious Studies. I opened a wedding planning business and became a well recognized professional and industry expert in New Mexico for 9 years.
While I had the flexibility of being self-employed, I gained a certification in Wholistic Kinesiology and studied holistic wellness for the mind, body, & spirit. This led me into studying how God's creation can support our amazing bodies (also God's creation) with things like essential oils and the moon.
I went from there to get a Masters in Spiritual Formation from what is now Portland Seminary. Those 3 years changed my life. It was a mind-blowing rehab and of all the conventional ways Christians teach about God, and I renewed and rewrote my faith and beliefs into what I now call Christian Mysticism.
I have dedicated my life to finding spirituality and a personal relationship with the Trinity in every day and every moment. I am constantly searching new ways to expand my God-box & yours.
