Lucy Davis rejected her spiritual gifts until a life-changing near-death experience
Intuitive life coach Lucy was living her best life, or so it seemed, but with a new found clarity she decided to take off travelling, healing herself on a spiritual level in the process. When she returned to a new life, her health took a downward turn and she found herself in hospital in serious trouble. In the midst of it, she had a curious visitation and she knew she was being called back to serve a more spiritual purpose… Put the kettle on and have a read of this amazing story in her own words.
Chase the dream
From the outside, I appeared to have it all: high-flying job in investment banking earning a fortune, fancy home and car, exotic holidays and a designer wardrobe. I worked and partied hard and was always chasing the next promotion or Louboutin heels. I was extremely driven, partly because I vowed I would never need a man to support me after my parents divorced when I was 15. I had totally bought into the idea that women could do it all – if not better – than most men.
My grandad Peter was the most important man in my life at the time; he died of lung disease in 2013. We had become increasingly close in his final weeks when he started asking questions that got me thinking. “Are you sure you’re happy, Lucy?” he would ask. “Are you sure you’re in the right career? I feel like you should be out there shining your light. You’re like the sunshine to people.”
“Of course I am, Grandad,” I used to smile.
Be in alignment
I didn’t wish to burden him in his final days with the fact that deep down, I was miserable and my lifestyle was affecting
my health. In 2014, I knew I couldn’t do it anymore. The job no longer felt in alignment and I was physically burnt out. I was drinking more, I couldn’t get up in the mornings and it felt like my body couldn’t function. I told my boss, “I have to leave, this job is killing me.” He offered me more money and a sabbatical to stay but I was determined. Everyone thought I was mad.
I had been pulled to travel for years but was petrified of going alone. After a road trip around America with a friend,
I found the courage to set off on my own. I disappeared for 14 months and travelled around Central and South America, Asia, Australia and the Middle East. I met some special people and pushed myself to try new things. I took Ayahuasca at a retreat in Ecuador and studied Muay Thai boxing in Thailand, which began my spiritual awakening. Although it’s a brutal contact sport, it taught me how to breathe properly and act like a warrior but in a beautiful, disciplined and conscious way. Before each fight, you are blessed by Buddhist monks and perform a ritual to thank your coach.
My body healed but stranger things happened. In a supermarket in Thailand one day, I could hear a lady wondering aloud which crisps to buy.
“I’d go for these,” I suggested, holding up my favourites.
“How did you know what I was thinking?” she asked in disbelief.
I was more freaked out than she was and realised I’d discovered an ability I had no idea about. Shortly after, I started seeing shadows and inexplicable things but I wasn’t ready, so I tried to ignore my gifts.
Switch up your spirituality
When I came home in 2015, I returned to the trading floor whilst re-training as a nutritionist and health coach. I stayed for two years in order to earn a certain amount so I could set up my coaching business. During this time, I offered free seminars to colleagues where I gave diet and lifestyle advice, which led to private bookings. During sessions, I would ask a few questions then receive a download of information about the root cause of their issues. It was usually some emotional trauma from the past that they thought they had dealt with or moved on from which manifested as a physical symptom.
“How do you know that?” they’d ask.
“I don’t, it’s just a feeling I have,” I’d explain.
After leaving the banking world, my coaching business flourished, as did my spiritual gifts, but I didn’t dare go public with them. Then in 2018, I was rushed to hospital again and needed a multiple blood transfusion.
Take guidance from the angels
As I drifted in and out of consciousness, I saw two huge bright figures with me who I intuitively knew were Archangel Michael and Archangel Uriel and my grandad was holding my hand.
Archangel Michael was a platinum colour with a very masculine structure and wore a breast plate, whereas Archangel Uriel was more of a golden colour and had a very creative and peaceful energy.
“Am I going to die, Grandad?” I asked. “I’m not ready! I’ve just figured out my purpose and I’m helping people…”
“You’re going to be okay, Lucy,” Grandad smiled. “The angels are saying that, when you’re better, you must use your spiritual gifts and assist unlocking people from their traumas.” He then suggested ‘Self Love Club’ may be the name I’d been looking for with my business.
It was such a beautiful, magical experience. In that moment, I promised myself that I would surrender to my intuition and my spiritual gifts and serve humanity, no matter what. The next day, the nurse gave me the biggest hug. “We thought we were going to lose you,” she sniffed.
After allowing my body to heal, I honoured the angels’ request. At first, I didn’t know where to start and the name made me cringe but I started running Self Love Club seminars where I shared the seven steps to self-love that I had identified to awaken and get connected to my guides. Fifty people turned up to the first one but this grew to hundreds and soon I was teaching around the world. I would share messages from my spiritual guides, including my grandad, and people had huge breakthroughs.
These days I mostly teach online and I share messages downloaded from my guides on social media. I now know that I am here to use my gifts to help people and to raise the collective consciousness, and I’ll be forever grateful to my grandad and the angels for helping me to realise this.
