Tell us about yourself
The journey started after the transition of a close friend. This catalyzed the deep dive journey into understanding energy, during which I began shedding layers of myself. The universe had very particular plans and led me to remote areas of the world where I immersed myself in the power of the mind. This voyage of inner discovery is how I gained my formal education as a Certified Facilitator in Mindfulness/Meditation, Law Of Attraction Coach, Yoga Therapist, Hypnotherapist, Sound Healing Practitioner, Psychedelic Guide, & Cannabis-Assisted Psychedelic Therapist was gained.
Unintentionally, my being grew increasingly aware of the mental prisons we keep ourselves in due to attachments we choose to have, perspectives we take, and subconscious thought patterns we are running on a daily basis. If we are our own healers, then we are, in turn, our own destroyers. I found it a responsibility, duty, and obligation to Finally Detach myself from the dogmas that were not my own. This was, and continues to be, a deep cleansing process. Initiated by Taino Elder Don Hongo as a Curandero, Gabriel works specifically with the mushroom to open deeper channels for those who are ready to receive it.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
My biggest accomplishment as a business owner has been creating opportunities for others to step into their healing path. To be able to wake up every day knowing I'm truly helping save lives is what I find the biggest accomplishment to be.
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
Transitioning from older mindsets and recruiting the right individuals. Being able to move from a small business mindset & into a big business mindset is something I find to be a fun yet challenging journey so far.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Go all in. You will never know enough. Commit first, & figure the rest out later.
- Belief in Yourself. Trust how the process unfolds itself!
- Find ways to awaken the power within & get out of your own way.
