Back in 2011, I was guided to go on one such wild ride... to India.
I was 22 years old and had just graduated college with a degree in Kinesiology and a minor in Psychology. I had recently been certified to teach yoga, and it seemed like a pretty good life plan for me.
But then something surprising happened. I found my calling.
Though I was planning on teaching yoga, I just didn't feel ready when my training ended. I had just finished college and felt a little empty and uninspired.
After a serendipitous encounter that only the Universe could orchestrate, I met a music producer who told me that I was born to make music.
I was a singer all my life but never dreamed of becoming a musician professionally. It wasn't my dream... it was the destiny I had set out to fulfill in this lifetime.
When I found out that music was my calling, my Universe exploded into a new reality. All of a sudden, I was on a course that had only one direction and that was FORWARD. I had no idea what was about to come on my journey.
As a college graduation gift, my parents offered to send me on a trip to anywhere in the world. So I chose India. Thinking that I could deepen my study of yoga in the Motherland, I set out to find an ashram to live in where I could practice yoga and study spirituality.
WELL I DEFINITELY LEARNED SOME STUFF. haha
As fate would have it, I unknowingly found an ashram that was in Vrindavan, the holy town where Krishna (the Hindu god) is from. Unknowingly, I selected an ashram that did NOT offer daily yoga nor spiritual studies.
I was all on my own. For one month. In India.
Why would this be happening? I wondered... It wasn't just my lack of planning and research. It was meant to be.
To rewind the story just a tad, I had visited Ireland and England before landing in India. In another serendipitous encounter, I met a woman who suggested that I speak with a spiritual channel before embarking on this mysterious journey to India to find out why I was really going.
I was like... I know why I'm going. Guess again.
So I took her advice and called this woman who channels angels and spirit guides from my London hotel room the day before I departed for Delhi.
This encounter completely shifted my path. It exploded my Universe into a new reality... again.
My spirit guides communicated to me through this channel and told me:
1. I am also a channel
2. My gift and higher purpose is music
3. I am going to India to gain some wisdom and lessons that I learned in past lives there
4. I would have 7 awakening initiations
I will save time by saying... YEAH. WOW. It was all spot on. And I'm SO glad I didn't suffer through one month alone in India without having a deeper reason for being there.
It was tough guys, but that trip accelerated my spiritual growth by lightyears and set me on the path to becoming Gia- spiritual coach, sound healer.
I always wondered if I would go back to India... perhaps the Himalayas?...
YOU GUYS... IT'S HAPPENING. I'M GOING BACK TO INDIA IN FEB 2018.
And I can't wait to see what magic is waiting for me when I get there!!! I'm quite sure it's going to be epic.
And of course the Universe whipped up some more magical journeys for me in the process of getting to India. I have been guided to create a healing chants album with the ever-enchanting singing bowl. This is a sound healing instrument that I have been using for years in my yoga classes & meditation videos (and I was introduced to it on that same fateful trip).
My students have been begging me to put out an album with the singing bowl, and guess what? IT'S TIME.
I am SO excited about this project, everybody! I'm launching a Kickstarter campaign to fund the album, and any remaining funds will go toward my trip to India.
I would love and greatly appreciate your support on this project!
In exchange for your generous donation, you can receive:
- the album download
- a special silent energy healing prayer recorded into the music
- a livestream performance of the album
- a private meditation and sound healing lesson with me
- a personalized chant written just for you
- a gift from India!!
It is my absolute honor to create this healing music for you. It would be my greatest joy to receive your support in creating it.
PLEASE JOIN ME ON THE KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN
Anything you can contribute is graciously appreciated. The campaign ends on November 21, 2017.
I love you guys, and I can't wait to share all my new stories and awakenings from this next journey to India with you!
Blessings to all of you,
