Meet Adela Nelson of Divinely Guided in Fort Lauderdale

Today we’d like to introduce you to Adela Nelson.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Adela. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
Initially, I started as an elementary school teacher. I wanted to change the lives of children and inspire them to be the best they can be. I earned a Master’s degree in educational leadership because I had plans of becoming a principal. Last year, I realized that I had served my purpose as a traditional teacher; I helped the students that I was supposed to help. I came to the conclusion that I was supposed to help others on a much broader scale. I was supposed to use the challenges I experienced to help other people navigate through their challenges and help them learn how to heal themselves. Now, I do a lot of work with adults, helping them address and heal any childhood trauma they experienced so they can parent consciously and allow their children or future children to flourish into who they’re meant to be.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
The road has been anything but smooth. I’ve experienced many challenges throughout my life but it wasn’t until recently that I realized everything I went through happened so I could help others. Some of my biggest challenges would have to be the trauma I experienced as a child (having parents that were physically present but emotionally absent). My mother also had an aneurysm when I was 11 and became disabled with permanent brain damage. That was a very difficult time in my life. After that, I really had to raise myself. My dad worked more to make sure I didn’t have to go without anything because my mother was already absent due to her brain injury. My battle with depression in 2016-2017 was also a very difficult time, probably one of the most difficult times in my adult life. I couldn’t see the light at the end of the tunnel. I’m grateful that I stuck it out and didn’t give up because all of these traumatic experiences helped shape me into the woman and healer I am today.

Please tell us about Divinely Guided – what should we know?
The name of my business is Divinely Guided. I provide intuitive readings, spiritual guidance & life coaching. I help others learn how to heal themselves. I do a lot of inner child healing & shadow work with my clients which helps them dig into wounds and trauma they’ve buried deep within themselves. I use a variety of tools in my sessions such as tarot & oracle cards, numerology (life path numbers) and astrology. I help others find and align with their life purpose. I am most proud of how fast my business has grown and how many people are open to healing and working on themselves. I believe what sets me apart from others is my ability to relate to my clients and keep it real with them. I am able to connect with them through my personal experiences and provide them with the guidance they’re seeking in a way that they are able to digest it, learn, and grow.

Any shoutouts? Who else deserves credit in this story – who has played a meaningful role?
It would be far too many to name because I feel like everyone who’s come into my life has played a meaningful role in some way. But I definitely want to shoutout my close friends who I call sisters because they’re more like family. You all know who you are.

A special shoutout to my sister Jazmin – thank you for guiding me along my spiritual journey from day one.
and the last shoutout goes to my Twin – thank you for pushing me onto this journey. Thank you for the lessons, the growth & teaching me how to love unconditionally. In this lifetime & the next.
