Today we’d like to introduce you to Natalia Rosenbaum.
Natalia , can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
Being born in Argentina and coming to Boston at age 4, my childhood was “complicated”. This lead me to seek out spiritual communities and I found myself at a Buddhist retreat center before I turned 20. Meditation and seeking truth through a spiritual path has always been a top priority in my life. Personal growth and understanding myself through the help of therapists has also been something that has been valuable. I never really bought into the traditional cultural conditioning and I have always been an independent thinker. I think outside the box and although it can be challenging, it’s good to embrace who I am and know that I can serve others in a way that has depth, is effective and also fulfilling.
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
The road definitely has not been smooth and its always a bumpy ride, but I use my meditation practice to help me react in the best way possible. I see the problems, but also, try and focus on what is going well and what is good about a particular situation. It’s not easy to maintain a daily meditation practice but it takes the same amount of energy to focus on how bad everything is then it takes to elevate my consciousness through meditation and therefore live in an uplifted and sane way.
What should we know about Aquarian Counseling? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
I am a licensed therapist in private practice in downtown Boston. I am also a registered Kundalini Yoga teacher. Kundalini Yoga is not like popular yoga at all and is a system of yogic science and technology designed to help people activate their conscious mind so that they can react to life from a place of truth and awareness and not from an unconscious habitual way.
In my work, I combine therapy with meditation by helping clients find the truth inside themselves.
I essentially “prescribe” simple three-minute meditations that are extremely effective at redirecting the habitual thought forms that keep them stuck in negative patterns. I see myself more as a guide and teacher rather than a therapist sometimes, though we also do talk therapy and that is also effective.
I am currently writing a book for therapist and coaches to learn basic Kundalini principals and meditations so that they can effectively guide their clients with daily transformational meditations.
It would be great to hear about any apps, books, podcasts or other resources that you’ve used and would recommend to others.
Guru Jagat is one of my teachers and her book Invincible Living is a staple on my shelf in the office. I love and use all of Yogi Bhajan’s books for teaching and learning. I also use Spotify and Apple Music to give clients mantra music. I use audible so I can get educated on my commute!
I use nature to help me do my best in life!
