In addition to being our host for 7 days of Balance and 30 days of Mindfulness, Gia is also a Spiritual Teacher, Energy Healer, Musician, and Sound Healer. She shares herself, her passions and how she brings light into the world with us.
“I bring all of my healing gifts together to help my clients shift and transform through the lense of trust. The idea is that everything happening to you is happening for you; the Universe/God is always guiding,” she states.
“I feel very grateful to be here, and help people navigate through their earth journeys, reminding them to come back to light, to hope, to truth, to inspiration, even when things get really hard, scary and dark on planet Earth.”
So how did it all start?
Gia has been singing her whole life. “Singing has always been something that flowed through me.” Waking spiritually at the age of 18, the only thing she wanted to do was grow. “I wanted to take the pain I was experiencing in my life and turn it into growth, make myself more conscious, more awake.” She wanted to learn to move on from what was holding her back. “Ever since I was 18, I was really passionate about personal development, spiritual growth, and self-help.”
Delving into meditation, Gia also studied health and fitness. “I originally thought I would be a personal trainer. In college, though, I fell in love with yoga and realized how important spirituality was to me.” So she shifted into learning more about the mind. She graduated with a degree in kinesiology and a minor in psychology.
She pursued a music career shortly after and opened her up the idea of being a musician professionally. Spending three years in LA, she soon realized that the “industry scene” was not for her. “My journey involved a lot of surrender at the time, I decided to let go and let music flow to me however it wanted to.”
With time, music came back to her in the creation of heartfelt songs, and the incorporation of sound healing into her yoga practice and classes. Moving back to San Diego in 2015, she reflects on how everything in her life came together. “It’s interesting because my music path and yoga path seemed separate for a really long time. For 6 years I was living two lives, I was the “yoga teacher” and the “musician.” Eventually, these two identities merged and it was one of the most powerful things she has ever done. “Over time, I have just let my heart guide me as to how I’m meant to share my spiritual passion and my music.”
In 2018, she went to India where she had several awakening moments and epiphanies.
Gia was already certified in Reiki, a Japanese healing art form where you are attuned to a specific frequency of energy. “It's its own unique vibration of energy that you can tap into that’s very healing and has been used for thousands of years.” Gia’s healing practice expanded from there. “All of my yoga knowledge, meditation, breathwork, sound healing, music, and my spiritual connection, I saw was going to be brought together to work one on one with clients.” She had always wanted to go deeper and now the universe was opening up and clearly showing her her path. “I had been gathering up my tools all along from college to the present moment to finally put them all together into this energy healing package.”
We wanted to dive into her modalities and asked what specifically sound healing is?
The goal is to create a soothing relaxing meditative sound experience. “The whole purpose is to allow music and sound to shift the way you feel and shift the energy inside in a very intentional way.
How was she exposed to it?
From her journey with yoga, she started learning about kirtan chanting. Next, she ended up on a sacred trip to Ireland. “One of the women on the trip brought a crystal singing bowl and played it at all of these sacred sites.” Gia was so moved by it that she came home and immediately purchased her own. Her story with singing bowls began there, evolved into her yoga classes, and is now incorporated into her healing sessions.
And Energy Healing?
“I now do my own unique form of blending my spiritual gifts to heal people's energy.” She has taken her Reiki training and made it her own, following her own intuition. The Reiki gave her the confidence to realize she was a healer, she knows now she has a direct connection to energy and spirit.
What do her energy healing sessions look like?
An intention is always set for the session. So, for example, clients will say: “I want to experience more peace,” or “I want to let this go.” Gia says a prayer to the universe and then is intuitively guided through all of her modalities from hands-on healing, to sound healing, aromatherapy, crystals, oracle cards, music, and meditation. “I always guide my clients through breathing, meditating and visualizing. I open my channel and the universe speaks through me with messages of what the client needs.” You can find out more here:
What if you don’t live in San Diego?
Gia offers spiritual coaching on Skype with clients all over the world. She’s passionate about being able to connect with people no matter their physical location and help them with what’s going on in their lives. “I basically give you a chance to open up and share what’s on your heart and mind. I then use my wisdom to offer suggestions on what might help you.” There are different packages available on her website catered to whatever we all might individually need. You can find out more here:
And the teaching of meditations on her youtube channel?
“I created my youtube channel in 2014. There are over 200 different videos on a wide variety of topics, from emotional healing, to mindset, visualization, manifesting, different breathing practices, eating disorders, anxieties.” What I personally love (as in, me, the writer, Maria Vandenburg) is her new moon and full moon meditations. She started those in December of 2018. “I take what resonates in the astrological world and add my own intuitive wisdom, then I guide everyone through what this time in the Cosmos looks like and lead everyone through a meditation that also always includes sound healing as well.” It’s an amazing way to check out her work here.
We believe she is an Earth Angel. Gia closes with:
“I feel that I am here to help people on their Earth journeys because Earth is a hard place, full of hard lessons as it’s what the 3rd dimension entails. I feel that I am gifted in helping people find light, hope, grace and the deeper meaning of their journey through the lense of what they are suffering from. I help them see that their suffering and pain is actually the doorway into their greatest destiny and their greatest spiritual awakening.”
BOOM. Mic drop. No words. Thank you, Gia, for being the Earth Angel that you are and continuing to be love and light that you are on the planet. This world is a better place because you are in it. You can connect with her directly in the following ways: 🌎❤️
