Imagine you’re from a tiny Midwestern town, population less than 3,000, and your aspirations are to work in the most famous city in the world and become the best in arguably the most competitive industry there is – entertainment. Do you think you’d be prepared for such a challenge without coming equipped with the spiritual and metaphysical skill sets that you know will give you both the edge and perseverance needed to thrive?
ALY Charles has come to know that we absolutely, positively play an instrumental role in creating our very own reality and this has been exemplified time and time again, beginning with that seemingly impossible national championship win. ALY was 10, in San Antonio Texas and remembers getting to the track the day before her race to see where she was seeded versus all the other national qualifiers. She found her list, ran her finger down the names one-by-one until she finally reached her own, alllllll the way down at the very bottom. ALY was seeded last. Dead last. Though the odds of winning were seemingly stacked against her, she vividly recalls not allowing that list to have any impact on her. What ALY did allow were thoughts and visions of winning and as she skipped down the sidewalk, she proclaimed to any and all who would listen, that she was going to win that national championship race the next day. ALY aligned herself with what she truly wanted and only allowed in thoughts to support it and it worked. The next day ALY was track national champion for the first time. The race she was predicted to get last in, she won by over 20 seconds.
ALY would go on to win two additional national championships and receive an athletic scholarship to the University of Alabama where she was a multiple-time All-Southeastern Conference Athlete, 10-time Academic All-SEC, Team Captain, ranked #2 on Alabama’s All-Time Performances List, the first female cross country athlete in history to receive SEC Athlete of the Week honors and All-South Region honors and the first female track athlete in history to compete in the 3000 Meter Steeplechase.
Throughout ALY’s life she has always set lofty goals and put forth into practice elements that she knows will help manifest her desires. Whether it be through Chinese herbology, alternative health methods, exploring all-natural beauty practices, taking psychic courses, learning feng shui, tarot cards, the healing power of colors, meditation, numerology, the law of attraction and so much more – ALY has tapped into various metaphysical energies and practices to help her get where she wants to go, and it works…
ALY always had dreams of moving to Florida, so after college she did and instantly became an advanced certified personal trainer at a bustling downtown Orlando gym and also landed her first on-air radio job. With due diligence, following spiritual practices and learning from the most world-renowned masters, ALY has also been able to be both a Division I College Coach AND a FM radio morning show host, where she increased show ratings 78%, took the show to #1, interviewed over 350 high-profile celebs such as T.I. , Nick Cannon, Outkast, Notorious BIG’s mother, Rev Run, Academy Award Winners, etc… ALYs also had the enriching and fun experiences to be on billboards, the cover of magazines, make guest appearances for talk shows, host concerts, road races and fashion shows.

"There isn't room to fully explain the depth of Aly's heart, mind & soul. Her thoughts and feelings are always honest and forth coming. I admire her strength, and there isn't anything her mind couldn't overcome. Focused, determined, loyal, and compassionate are just a few key words I would use to describe her, but my favorite one of all is friend. I trust her with all that I have."
