Today we’d like to introduce you to Vanessa Petronelli.
Vanessa, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
For many years, I felt like I was dropped off on a planet that I didn’t belong in. “Do others feel this way?” I would often ask myself.
Along with playing with Barbies and My Little Pony, as a kid, I was drawn to anything related to UFOs, ancient Egypt, alien species, metaphysics and parapsychology. Little did I know, that even as a kid, I had a strong connection with the Divine and my Spirit team.
Childhood friends would often seek my advice and I’d always find ways to intuitively help them with their problems without the need to have gone through them myself.
At age 14, I heard a “voice” speak through me.
The voice was strong, audible and clear. It told me that I belonged in the entertainment industry and that getting involved in this industry would be an important part of my life’s purpose. I trusted this guidance immediately. Deep inside, I knew that there was truth and love behind this message.
I was inspired at the chance that I could have the ability to influence many people around the world in BIG and positive way by entering this industry. All while still doing typical teenage things like attending high school, going out on dates, becoming the prom queen and then receiving a university education.
Over the next ten years, I sang in a pop group, started an event promotions business, walked on red carpets, worked on film sets and did photoshoots, walked down runways as a model during Fashion Week.
But the longer I was doing this work the more misaligned it felt because I wasn’t able to really speak my truth and share my fullest expression of my Soul in a way that I had once dreamed of and believed that this industry could provide me.
So I left the entertainment world, and everything that is offered, in search of doing the thing that I knew I was BORN to do on this planet.
Once again, the voice returned telling me to focus on my own healing, spiritual growth and helping people. It was during these years that I chose to commit and dive deeply into my spiritual and personal growth. I worked with many different mentors, healers and teachers and became fully devoted to the evolution of my soul and my consciousness.
Slowly, my spiritual gifts reactivated. I started to see auras. I did powerful energy healing with my hands. Energetic transmissions with my voice. It was overwhelming, but I finally felt so aligned to what I was destined to do all along. I even received my yoga and mindfulness training certification, did a post-grad and built my current business from the ground up.
I finally realized what my purpose was – to help people to connect to the essence of who they are. To fully align with that part of themselves and to express that to the world in the way that is most true and aligned for them.
I started to work with many leaders, artists, visionaries, entrepreneurs and influencers from all walks of life. I offered online and offline classes, events, workshops, retreats, and one to one work.
As more and more people came to seek my help, I realized I needed to break through my shell to be able to change more lives on a global level.
For the past fifteen years, I have been committed to regularly working on and transforming my own life, developing my skills as a leader and business owner, and diving deep into my personal and spiritual self.
I consider myself a student for life and have invested in myself on a regular basis so that I can remain on the cutting edge and be fully resourced to support those that work with me.
As a result of my own personal and professional transformation and working with people from all walks of life, I have also developed my own method called, Quantum Coaching, combining my coaching skills, intuitive insights and channeling abilities, to help create expedited breakthroughs and life changing results with my client’s in a shorter, more accelerated period of time.
Through this work, you become a more fulfilled human being that is aligned, embodied and living out your sacred Divine Plan.
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
When I first started out with my business, I focused solely on serving my clients and fulfilling my mission. And after several years of that, I got burnt out. I was coaching over 90 clients each month, ran workshops on most weekends and taught yoga and meditation classes each week and hardly had enough downtime for myself, my friends or my family. Once I had the realization and healed my body, I shifted my entire lifestyle, mindset and attitude around my work and neglecting myself in the midst of it. Self-care is always my number one priority over anything else.
Tell us about your business – what should we know? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
For over a decade, I have been supporting high-performance leaders, visionaries and influencers in becoming more impeccably aligned to themselves, their missions and leadership.
Through my unique trance-channeling events, accelerated Quantum Coaching Method, leadership retreats, keynote speaking, intuitive workshops and transformational online programs, my work provides grounded, strategic results-based transformations—all through learning to embody and lead from their soul and higher consciousness.
Currently, I’m integrating my decade of work in the entertainment industry as a model, actor and singer to bring my transformational skillset to Hollywood. I’m excited to help raise the consciousness of the planet through the influencers who are both in front of and behind the camera, on stage and off stage.
What moment in your career do you look back most fondly on?
My proudest moment is seeing the wave of individuals awakening and aligning themselves to their highest version of themselves, increasing the well-being of the planet. That includes not just mentally and physically, but spiritually as well. I teach people how to tune in to their inner authority and sovereignty so that every choice and action they make is one that is sourced from their soul.
