In this episode with Gala, you'll discover:

-The Misunderstood Realm of "Self-Love" (03:10)

Contrary to popular belief, self-love isn’t just about pampering yourself with spa days or positive affirmations in the mirror. The most misunderstood aspect of "self-love" lies in its depth. It’s a profound understanding and acceptance of oneself — the good, the bad, and the ugly. It's about embracing your imperfections, learning from mistakes, and constantly striving to be the best version of yourself.

-The Key to Creating Sustainable Change (08:15)

We often think that massive action is the answer to transformative change. Yet, creating sustainable change is about consistency. It’s about doing little things over and over again. It’s the tiny habits we build, the minor adjustments to our daily routines, and the commitment to showing up, even on days when motivation is scarce.

-Tools for the Tough Times (12:45)

Life, with its unpredictable nature, brings setbacks and challenges. Gala has her arsenal of tools she turns to during these times. Whether it's meditation to center her thoughts, journaling to process emotions, or seeking guidance from her close-knit community, these tools not only help her bounce back but also grow stronger.

-The Power of Letting Go (15:25)

Holding onto past resentments, outdated beliefs, relationships, businesses or other things that no longer align with our journey can be heavy. It's imperative to let go of something that doesn't serve us. By releasing these burdens, we create space for new opportunities, relationships, and experiences that align more closely with our true selves.

-The Magic of Love: Multiplying It (17:15)

Love, in both romantic and platonic relationships, isn't a finite resource. Instead, the more we give, the more we receive. By fostering a culture of understanding, empathy, and open communication, we can make love "multiply." It’s a dance of giving and receiving, where vulnerability plays a key role.

-Living from the Heart Amidst Societal Pressures (21:15)

Overcoming societal expectations and judgments is no small feat. However, to truly live life from the heart, one must learn to navigate these pressures. It’s about acknowledging societal norms but not letting them dictate your life's choices. By aligning actions with inner truths and values, we can lead a more authentic and fulfilling life.

-The Genesis of Gala's Communities (25:35)

Inspired by her own journey and the stories of countless others, Gala formed the Vortex community and the High Vibe Honey Community. These spaces serve as a haven for those seeking connection, understanding, healing and empowerment. It’s a testament to the universal human need for belonging and the transformative power of collective growth.

-The Universal Resonance of Self-Love (34:40)

But why does this message of self-love resonate so strongly across the globe? Perhaps it's because at our core, irrespective of culture or background, we all seek acceptance — not just from others, but from ourselves. In an ever-connected world, the message of self-love serves as a reminder that the first step to building meaningful relationships externally is cultivating a strong relationship with oneself.

-Gala's Current Endeavors (39:39)

Always one to push boundaries and inspire others, Gala is a prolific creatrix. From authoring books that dive deep into personal transformation to launching workshops that empower individuals to reclaim their narratives, to creating communities, Gala’s mission is clear: to uplift, inspire, and bring light to the world.
