Gabriela has so much to give, and her passion and enthusiasm comes across in this video. Please be sure to follow her journey on her website and social media profiles.
Anxiety is something we have all experienced at some stage of our lives. It could be described simply as a feeling of unease, such as worry or fear that can be mild or severe. These fears ad worries are often related to thing which may or may not occur in the future. Anxiety is a natural human response when we perceive that we are under threat.
1 in 4 of us will experience a mental health issue during our life. 25% of 13-18 year olds suffer from an anxiety disorder and 80% of people diagnosed with an anxiety disorder don’t get any help.
There are many symptoms which I go into in the video and also some of the people I have worked with have given me permission to share how it manifested for them. A big part of anxiety is for us as individuals to decide when it becomes a problem and when it is time to do something about it.
At the end of the video I share 5 ways that we can manage our anxiety better. I hope you find some value in this video and it helps you going forward in dealing with your anxiety.

Ever wondered why so much emphasis is put on being nice to other people in many of the worlds spiritual paths and faiths? Because it has a concrete impact on the physical world!
In this episode I share the data from two experiments which have been done about how words and thoughts influence physical things. These two things that were experimented on are water and plants. Its a really interesting social experiment on the plants and a more scientific/spiritual experiment on the water.
There are many factors that go into getting what we want out of life. I share two of the main ones in this Vlog episode. I see them as:
- The size of the thing you want. A glass of water or a can of coke is much easier to acquire than something much grander than that, say, a fit and lean beach body, or a YouTube channel with 1,000,000 subscribers. &
- When (in time) you want the thing. The glass of water and can of coke can be attained relatively quickly, instantaneously if you are that thirsty, whereas the body or YouTube channel would be impossible to get that day, or in a short period of time.
This being said, there is no reason why we can’t attain a sexy beach bod or a million YouTube subscribers, it will just take a hell of a lot more work to get there.
This episode was just something that came into my mind and that I was pondering for for most of the day. With that I thought it would be. good idea to formulate my thoughts and share them in a Vlog. Enjoy and share!
1 in 4 people are effected by mental health in any year. This means that if you go out for dinner with three friends, one of you is likely to have a mental health issue.
35-50% of people with mental health problems don’t get help. Only 14% don’t know somebody with a mental illness.
Every year, more than 800,000 people die from suicide. Thats one every 40 seconds.

“Sometimes if you want to see a change for the better, you have to take things into your own hands.” – Clint Eastwood.
We must understand and realise that it is ok not to be ok, and then seek out support, advice and guidance wherever we can find it!
- What is Mental Health?
- How can we increase our awareness of it?
- Why is it so important to make time in our life for better understanding of Mental Health?
Mental Health can be defined as a persons condition regarding their psychological and emotional well being. It affects how we think, feel and act, and is also a huge determiner in how we handle stress, make choices and relate to others.

Ive been working on this one for a while now, and really excited to finally release it into the world! See the Video at the bottom of the page.
If you wanted to learn about the mechanism behind Steve Jobs’ Reality distortion field you could read a number of books: ‘The Secret’ or ‘the power of your subconscious mind’, some books on NLP or auto-suggestion. Alternatively, you can just sit and watch this video and learn how to implement these ideas and techniques to distort your own reality and move towards something which currently seems highly unlikely.
Steve Jobs had charisma and an indomitable will, as well as the eagerness to bend any fact to suit the job at hand. I share an interesting story in the Vlog about a story when Jobs went to find someone to produce the glass for the iPhone and iPad and how he used his reality distortion field to get that deal done, and ahead of schedule to boot.
We have seen the reality distortion field at work very often if we are fans of the Star Wars franchise, this Jedi mind trick is a staple tool of the Jedi Masters. I share an example of this to further illustrate how powerful this tool is in the Vlog.
So what can we learn from Steve Jobs’ reality distortion field to bring into our own lives? We need to cultivate two things; our inner Steve jobs, and a mind as sharp as a Jedi Master. We need to stay focussed and motivated towards our goals by concentrating on the big picture and not the miniature, tiny details that don’t have too much impact on reality.
By expecting greatness, we can achieve greatness.
To innovate our lives we need to generate our own reality distortion field and create the reality that we want to experience. This way, we can manipulate our life to conform with the dreams that we have always had, and can finally make them a REALITY!!
