Hi, I'm Gabi. My journey of learning about the power of the subconscious mind and body started in my early twenties. At the time, I was an excessive alcohol drinker and smoker, anxiety stricken, overweight and motivationally depraved individual that has been prescribed anti-depressants since the age of 17. At that point, I didn't realise how deep of a hole I have put myself in. However, I did know that I was lost - and that I did not want to be lost anymore. I had my first moment of awakening at age 22 when I participated in a free yoga class at my university - I spontaneously had a full emotional-body release of crying in the middle of a yoga sequence. Yes, I was embarrassed. But afterwards I felt deep peace that I have never experienced. I felt calm and free of my self-loathing. However, the feeling of serenity did not last long. Even though this peace was short-lived, it catapulted my insatiable interest to learn more. How can I find more of this 'peace' in my everyday life? It led to my journey of discovering the connection between the subconscious mind, body and spirit - steering my studies into clinical hypnotherapy, reiki, breathwork, meditation and counselling. My journey of healing and recovery (including weaning off anti-depressants, quitting smoking, reducing my alcohol, losing weight and managing my anxiety) was not overnight, it has taken years and I'm humbled by the fact that it will be a life long process of making conscious decisions.
I know what it's like to not feel good enough, to feel lost and confused, to feel overwhelmed, to feel useless and weak, to feel trapped, to feel out of control, to feel like you don't belong anywhere, to feel unworthy of love, abundance and success.
My journey has not been straight forward - there has been many pit stops and side-steps along the road - and one of my greatest realisations is that it is okay. Life is not meant to be straight forward. Life is not meant to be perfect. Change and challenges in our life path is inevitable. It helps us grow, learn and pivot towards what matters to us most. We can start making the conscious decisions today that leads us to our desired life. And the wonderful thing is - we don't have to do it alone and it doesn't have to take years! I have studied the healing arts to heal my own mental suffering, and it is my greatest pleasure to guide others find the same.
