Veronica Drake is what I think of as a ‘professional hyphenate’. She is a life coach-speaker-writer-intuitive with a delightful sense of humor. She has discovered that in the midst of life challenges…and she has survived many; humor has been a healing balm. She knows that she is tapped into Source and willingly shares that with all she encounters.
How do you live your bliss?
1. Extreme happiness; ecstasy.
2. The ecstasy of salvation; spiritual joy.
When I decided to be happy I was. What I mean by that is I believe we create the world we live in. Creating bliss for me is a process of affirmations, quiet time with Spirit, using my mind creatively, and spending time laughing and connecting with people. I want to clarify that I do not wake up with singing birds on my window sill and sunshine on my face, but I am willing to consciously make the choice to think that way. What I mean by that is life happens, we all have stuff that side tracks us and takes us on a different path than originally thought. It is our reaction to the change that creates bliss! Every day before I get out of bed I give thanks to the creator for giving me one more day! How do I live my bliss? With every breath I take!
You call your work Soul Expression…how do you personally express your soul?
Using my creativity is the main way I express my Soul. I love to write and I love to develop out of the box ways to empower women. My practice of expression includes connecting directly to my Source. Connecting to Source or Spirit is a very personal journey. There are many ways to draw the breath of spirit into your expressions. I simply choose to get quiet and listen. I typically have a pen and paper and just write what comes to me.
I also express my Soul in my day to day interactions with humanity. Maybe it’s a smile to a stranger, or holding the space for people to be where they are at, not judging and not discriminating on who deserves kindness and who doesn’t. I made myself a promise to always strive to honor spirit in all that I do. And, for me that means sharing all of me with the world. I live from my Soul. My life is transparent; what you see is what you get. I truly try to live the words Do Unto Others.
What do you feel is your purpose in this lifetime?
I am 100% certain my purpose is to be the messenger which includes healing humanity. My title is Spiritual Advisor and Intuitive. I am one of the vehicles that spirit uses to communicate with humanity. I am able to read energy at a Soul level. I am able to tap into what’s happening right now in your life and with Divine guidance I pass on the information lovingly and compassionately that’s needed to help you travel your path. Being honest, direct and compassionate is my style, oh yea, and I love to laugh. Humor is part of the package with me!
How does Spirit speak through you?
I believe we all have the ability to have a conversation with Spirit. I simply choose to listen and trust what comes through. Typically I am able to use all five senses when conversing with spirit. I am also at times able to communicate with loved ones who have passed on. For me it’s a very strong sense of knowing and trusting what is shown to me. For me it’s as natural as breathing.
What is You-ology?
You-Ology is a 5 week program I developed (with spirit guidance, of course) to help women live their lives by design instead of by default. I use custom designed tools to help each individual identify and live her passion and purpose. I offer a 10- 15 minute complimentary conversation to see if we are a good match to work together. When you decide to work with me you get all my intuitiveness in the process as well as worksheets and yes, there is “homework”. After all no one has your answers except YOU! You-Ology is truly the study of YOU.
I am also very excited to share that I have developed and extension to You-Ology. It is called Soul Expressions and it’s a membership site where you can explore who you came here to be. More to come on my website. The launch date is January 8th! I am planning a virtual launch party. Watch my site for details.
Talk about Thoughts, Food, W(h)ine and Bubble Wrap, please.
Writing Thoughts, Food, W(h)ine & Bubble Wrap was personally cathartic for me. I needed a venue to release all the learning I have embraced over the last decade or so. I share personal stories and real life examples from my life on how I climbed up and embraced life. The book was intended to be a light hearted look at life and how it works if we let it. It was by choice I made the book a journal of sorts. I am a firm believer in writing it all out. It was also intentional that I made it only 80 pages. I wanted a quick look that inspires women to check in with themselves and hopefully re read it as necessary.
