Every single person who experiences trauma experiences it differently, from the actual event itself to the way they cope with it. Some people develop post-traumatic stress disorder and some develop symptoms that resemble it. Oftentimes, trauma can be hidden or dealt with through other coping behaviors that make up a ‘normal’ or less-than-normal lifestyle. Workaholism is one of the ways many people cope with their trauma. Throwing themselves into work, people who have experienced trauma can ignore what has happened to them. Workaholics find themselves in high-pressure and highly important work positions, placing lots of responsibility on themselves in order to stay as busy as possible. Even with families, friends, and extracurricular activities, a workaholic prioritizes their work life because they need to be involved in their work life. If they aren’t distracted and indulging in work, they might have to confront their trauma and feel their feelings. This, of course, could lead to a distraction from or an inability to perform at work.
So our you addicted to your work? Or is your trauma cause you to other type of addiction, food, alcohol, drugs or others?… Using mindfulness meditation, and the help of some guided instruction, we can learn to observe our minds in a state when there is no craving and when there is, and learning to better manage these cravings through repeated meditation practices.
Mindfulness meditation aims to help people understand what drives cravings, and to better deal with the discomfort they create. Enjoy this video, and if you can give it a try do this meditation for 30 days either on your own or with the help of this video, Thank you my friend to take this time to heal yourself. Namaste, Gabi

Hey you! Did you know that you’re very special? There is no other person in this world like you. You deserve to be loved not only by those around you but by the most important person in your life — YOU. Practicing self-love can be challenging for many of us, especially in times when we face serious challenges. It’s not about being self-absorbed or narcissistic, it’s about getting in touch with ourselves, our well-being and our happiness. We practice self-love so we can push through our limiting beliefs and live a life that truly shines.
So do yourself a favor, take a deep breath, give yourself a little hug and start practicing the following:
1. Start each day by telling yourself something really positive. How well you handled a situation, how lovely you look today. Anything that will make you smile.
2. Fill your body with food and drink that nourishes it and makes it thrive.
3. Move that gorgeous body of yours every single day and learn to love the skin you’re in. You can’t hate your way into loving yourself.
4. Don’t believe everything you think. There is an inner critic inside of us trying to keep us small and safe. The downside is this also stops us from living a full life.
5. Surround yourself with people who love and encourage you. Let them remind you just how amazing you are.
6. Listen to this video as many time as you need
Signs that you need to increase your Self-Love & Self-Acceptance levels:
Whenever you find yourself tired, drained, trying to keep up with things, fit in, blend in, be more at peace with yourself, or even hating your body, you are using vital life force that you could use for other more important things in life.
The Importance of Self-Love and Self-Acceptance
“Growth begins when we start accepting ourselves” -Jean Vanier
We usually set standards that are too high for ourselves because the society expects us to be perfect. We tend to forget that everyone has flaws including the people we perceive to be perfect.

During times of high stress, people may struggle to balance their mind and body and find their place in the universe. Your energy affects everything around you, and your mindset can definitely affect your environment and the people within it. If you are feeling closed off from the world, your seventh chakra, or crown chakra, may be off-balance. A balanced crown chakra gives wisdom and self-awareness, allowing one to feel connected to others as part of the universe. The seven chakras (root, sacral, solar plexus, heart, throat, third eye and crown) all play an important role in the balance of your mind, body and spirit. Learning about the chakras can help you check in with yourself to become more in-tune with your needs. After the first six chakras have been balanced, you can meditate on the seventh chakra for full alignment.
The seventh chakra is called the crown chakra which gives off consciousness energy. This energy connects our inner mind to the universe. It is located at the top of the head, right above the third eye chakra. The crown chakra is associated with wisdom and a sense of understanding about the universe. By seeing yourself as part of the universe, you can let go of the stress of the material world and focus on things that matter.

What Is Niche Marketing?
Niche marketing is an advertising strategy that focuses on a unique target market. Instead of marketing to everyone who could benefit from a product or service, this strategy focuses exclusively on one group—a niche market—or demographic of potential customers who would most benefit from the offerings.
The benefit of niche marketing is that it allows brands to differentiate themselves, appear as a unique authority, and resonate more deeply with a distinct set of customers. Rather than blend in with the many other brands that offer the same type of product or service, a brand can use niche marketing to stand out, appear more valuable, reach its growth potential, and build a stronger, longer-lasting connection with its ideal audience.
A niche market could stand apart from others because of:
* Geographic area
* Activity or habits
* Feature reduction or addition

This past February, I had the pleasure to witness the original cast performance of Alanis Morissette’s new Broadway musical, Jagged Little Pill. My urge to write this post is not to solely state my gratitude to see this show prior to its temporary closing or to honor the beauty in its storyline, based around feminism, women's rights, LGBTQIA+, mental health, and drug addiction, but to discuss the beauty that the ensemble cast brought to the stage, particularly the solo dance motifs.
As a musician, dancer, and Registered- Dance/Movement Therapist, the artistic direction was one to remember. Yes, the tears I spoke of earlier were caused by the acting and the struggles those actors portrayed. However, the greatest emotional response I experienced was witnessing the solo dancers move through the emotional and mental monologue of each cast member. One moment in particular was the side by side vocal expression of Mary Jane Healy, played by actress and singer Elizabeth Stanley, and the non-verbal movement expression portraying her internal monologue, performed by Heather Lang. Within the last 30 minutes of the show, I heard Elizabeth Stanley wear her character's heart and whole self on her sleeve, singing “Uninvited”. As I listened to the beauty in her song, I could not peel my eyes off the gorgeous dancer beside her; drenched in pain, internal turmoil, confusion, frustration, and hopelessness. The expression through movement held so much more weight (for me) than the actual music. In one aspect I could hear her pain, but in the other I could feel it.
In my work as a dance/movement therapist, I am often presented with the gift to witness and share space with an individual. Dance/movement therapy brings that second, somewhat deeper level to an emotion. We all can talk about our struggles, and hope both ourselves and the listener can grasp the truth behind our words, but when we physically move, our mind and bodies have a secondary connection. When embodying an emotion we experience that emotion differently. This is both true for the individual, and for their witness. Why I believe this movement motif affected me so strongly was because it was not a simple mirror in movement (think- looking into a mirror and having someone follow your exact patterns) or a mirror in language. The magic with this type of mirrored expression was that the movement mirrored her words. Mary Jane’s verbal expression was transformed into a visual dynamic that offered the audience a much stronger connection to the character's internal monologue. I hope that this show opens our eyes to the many struggles we face daily, and helps everyone to not only feel heard, but to be seen.
The Sacral Chakra Houses Creativity, Relationships, and Sexuality
Being creative in nature, the sacral chakra’s main focus is allowing the individual to discover what they enjoy, to form hobbies, create loving and exciting relationships, and even creativity in lovemaking and sexual eroticism.
The second chakra is centered on personal identity or personal play in the external world and how it responds to the seductive forces of the physical world. Therefore, if the second chakra is unbalanced, it can lead to addictions of drugs, sex, gambling and money.
The Svadhisthana is the foundation of a healthy ego that allows us to interact with the world without selling ourselves short or pretending to be someone we are not. A person with a strong second chakra can survive financially and physically on his or her own and bond with others to form harmonious friendships. A balanced second chakra has the ability to take risks and have the resilience to recover when things go wrong.
But if the first chakra is already out of balance with lack of root support, how are you supposed to learn how to form harmonious friendships, relationships and healthy physical interests later in life?
If you need to balance your root chakra see our previous video, otherwise follow this guided meditation to awaken and balance your second chakra
The Root Chakra is foundational. When all is well with this chakra, you’ll feel secure, calm and anchored in reality. You’ll be bold enough to tackle new challenges, and you’ll feel confident doing so. This makes a properly aligned Root Chakra vital whenever you’re trying something new or pursuing a major life goal.
Root Chakra Information Summary
Physical Location: The bottom of your spine (where your tailbone is located).
Associated Animal: Elephant.
Emotional Issues and Behaviors of Blocked Root Chakra: If your Chakra is blocked you may feel threatened, panicked or anxious. This anxiety can easily infiltrate your thoughts, making everything suddenly feel uncertain. You may also find that you can’t concentrate and that you’re constantly preoccupied with worries about your well-being. In some people, this can manifest as hypochondria or general paranoia. Physical issues potentially caused by a blocked Root Chakra include a sore lower back, low energy levels, and cold extremities.
I invite you to balance and activate your root chakra with this Guided Meditation, Namaste. Gabi
