Celebrity Stylist Changes His Life Through Meditation

Sometimes, when you feel completely hopeless and you are about to lose everything - even your life -  Heaven gives you another chance.

This is exactly what happened to the celebrity hairstylist Gabriel Georgiu. At a point when life seemed to have no meaning for him and he was ready to lose it, he was given the chance to live again. With meaning, inner peace, and even happiness.


From Having Almost Everything To Being Lost

As a top-flight hairstylist in Hollywood, Gabriel Georgiu lived the American dream. He had fame, money, an intense, and jam-packed with celebrities life. Hot parties, designer clothes, and famous clients like Drew Barrymore, Keanu Reeves, and Jessica Alba. What could a person want more?

"I succeeded in becoming one of the very busy hairstylists in the industry," Gabriel says in an interview with Magnifissance.com.

In his hands, blow-dryers and scissors worked like magic. He coaxed manes into the most beautiful looks imaginable with the skill of a wizard. No wonder his paycheques started piling up. He got himself a house in Los Angeles and all the trimmings of a jet-set lifestyle. But none of these could fill the interior void most of us are experiencing from time to time.

Are money and fame the meaning of life? For how long the happiness you experience when you buy a fancy car or a trendy outfit will last? Not long enough, it seems... Happiness trailed farther and farther away from Gabriel though in terms of material goods he had almost everything.

So he started doing drugs to fill the interior void he felt.  "Yes, it was a recreational thing, but it was also to keep me able to deal with all the rubbish around me", the stylist recalls.


The Turning Point For Gabriel Georgiou

Though drugs like meth eased his interior pain, on the other hand, they "stole" him piece by piece. A turning point came during a fashion shoot in the British Virgin Islands. Georgiou almost passed away. And, when on the edge, a miracle happened...

"I nearly passed away. On big trips, I would quit drugs ‘cold turkey.’ That, plus the exhaustion, plus a lot of things—I was very, very ill at that point. I’d barely get up to do hair, and the make-up artist would take care of the rest. I was in bed for a few days, and at one point I felt I was going. I was going. I felt I was leaving. There was no fear; I knew I was just leaving the human world.

There was this voice. It was three or four dimensions, I don’t know what to call it. It was a very, very loud voice that said to me: ‘We have come to take you—you have lost your way.’

I said ‘I know, I understand, I’m really sorry.’ I genuinely meant it from my heart. ‘I’m very sorry. I know I haven’t found what I’m looking for. I’ve just been caught up in it all, and I’ve lost myself. Give me another chance. Please, give me another chance.’ I sunk back into my body, my eyes opened and I was back. That’s when the change started, and I started trying to clean myself up," Gabriel said.


A New Meaningful Life Begins

After that crucial point, the famous stylist decided to completely change his way of life. He gave away his designer clothes, the fabulous furniture he owned, the car, quit his job, and left Los Angeles, to the deep surprise of all the people he knew. As for the friends he thought he had... they all vanished.

Alone and tired he found refugees at his parents' house, in Australia.

"I didn’t want to see another human being. All I wanted to do was spend time with my family, read books, eat and sleep. I was tired and exhausted and feeling this superficiality that I saw in everybody. I was truly questioning whether there were any good people left," Gabriel recalled those days.

And, one day, something that turned his life in the good direction finally happened. He met a nice and kind makeup artist who listened to his story while they worked together on commercials in Australia.

That gentle person who seemed at ease even under pressure told Gabriel that she practiced a spiritual discipline called Falun Dafa (or Falun Gong) and that if he ever wanted to learn, he could find her meditating in the park on most Sunday mornings. Which he did...

"What I really liked were the three principles of truth, compassion, forbearance—that resonated with me. And the fact that it was free really clicked, because I knew that something good is taught from the heart, and you don’t take money for it. And thirdly, the fact that it was mind and body," he said.

Once Gabriel took Falun Dafa seriously, his body experienced a sudden jolt. "The second week I tried the exercises. I never felt something so strong, getting rid of such negativity."

"I said to the practitioners ‘give me the books right now—I need to know what this is, what I’m doing. I need to read everything.’ That was it. I’ve been practicing ever since," says Georgiou, who quit smoking with almost no effort just five weeks later.

With each passing day, many other unhealthy habits and chronic unease fell away. He got rid of scoliosis that gave him a lot of suffering over the years, of the insomnias that tormented his knits, and of a lot of other problems. He no longer needed painkillers or any kind of medicine.

And, most of all, he found answers to all the questions about the meaning of life he had and therefore found his inner peace and regained the sense of life.

As he started living by the principles of truthfulness, compassion, and forbearance - the tenets of Falun Dafa - and kept doing the gentle meditative exercises, his spirit, mind, and body felt more and more energetic and joyful. Work became easier, he was happy all the time, took things lightly, and laughed easily.


Gabriel Georgiou Back In The Fashion World

After being disillusioned with the fashion industry, Falun Dafa made Gabriel want to enter it again as he realized he can be a positive influence in this world of fashion.

So, today, Georgiou is an international virtuoso once again, only that he wows Europe and India with his creations. He splits his time between Greece and Mumbai, India—the heart of Bollywood—where he works.

The stars he works with now are Italian, Czech, or Indian, and their followers can outnumber Brad & Angelina’s. The new environment has brought new challenges, but he says the principles of Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance now dwelling in his heart help him handle anything.


About Falun Dafa

Falun Dafa is embraced by tens of millions all over the world. Its five exercises (including mediation) improve both physical and mental health and are practiced - free of cost - in more than 100 countries. This unique practice has received thousands of awards and recognitions for the benefits it brings society.

Unfortunately, Falun Dafa that brought health and inner peace to millions is cruelly persecuted in communist China, the country where the practice was first taught.

In 1999, when the number of practitioners in China exceeded the number of communist party members, the Chinese dictator Jiang Zemin - who was scared and probably frustrated that the practice is more popular than the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) - ordered the eradication of Falun Gong "by any means necessary". Another reason was that the moral principles promoted by Falun Gong were the opposite of the evil Marxist doctrine of violence and struggle promoted by the CCP.

At Jiang Zemin's order, the state-owned mass media started to denigrate Falun Dafa and demonize its practitioners. The CCP went so far that it staged a fake immolation incident in Tiananmen square, so as to make the people of China believe that Falun Gong practitioners are insane and that the state-run persecution was justified. And then, the madness began! Innocent practitioners were thrown in jails, brainwashing centers, labor camps, detention centers, etc., where they were beaten, tortured, brainwashed so as to force them to give up Falun Gong. But they did not...

And the Party had, in no time, a large mass of prisoners. "Stubborn" consciousness prisoners, determined not to give up Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance. And not only "stubborn", but also very healthy. This was practitioners' "bad luck", as they were transformed, as independent investigations proved it later on, in a huge "organ bank" of living human beings. This terrible genocide is taking place even today, for more than 20 years... For more information on this subject click here.
