Gabrielle Bernstein is the new kind of role model for young women that are looking to add something more to their lives than that new Gucci purse or colorful cocktails with the girls (although we still do love to relax and chic chat with our girlfriends over a glass of wine after work). She is the next generation guru, motivational speaker, life coach and author of two books; Add More ~ing to Your Life- a Hip Guide to Happiness and the Spirit Junkie, a Radical Road to Self-Love and Miracles. My second blog post ever in 2008 was about Gabrielle as well, take a look her
I’ve been to few Gabrielle’s lectures in the past years and have her meditations and lectures in my iPod so I can listen to them when I’m on the train, walking, waking up, going to sleep and so on. Instead of watching TV before bed, I want to fill my mind with positive thoughts. Because the power of mind is so powerful. And I’m slowly starting to realize it.
Spirit Junkie is a story of how Gabrielle has transformed her life and she is offering her spiritual journey as a guidebook for overcoming fear, changing perceptions, and creating a life you’re psyched to wake up for. She has traded self-doubt and addiction for a new kind of high. Choose love over fear.
The Spirit Junkie lecture was held at ABC Carpet & Home’s Deepak HomeBase
, a space that was just perfect for an intimate gathering for 200 people… 🙂
Spirit Junkie lecture included a Power Panel that included Marie Forleo, Tara Stiles, Latham Thomas, Josh Pais, and the Astro Twins. The entire lecture is available for viewing at herfuture.com. To sum up shortly what I got from this lecture was to stop letting my ego control my mind and causing me to doubt myself and fear that I’m not good enough to get that job, be with this man, have real friends or get whatever happiness there is in this world to get. This fear is just an illusion, not even real. I can get that job if I focus and want it bad enough, release this desire to the universe and let her (the universe) do her thing. I no longer push things to get done. My inner guidance and the universe will guide me to the right direction once I let it.
So far I’ve gotten everything I ever wanted in life so I’m grateful for that. But as you know, there’s this one thing that has made me miserable for few years now that I’ve been stuck in it; my job. I just checked my emails and January 2008 I had my first interview after I felt I didn’t want to work in this place anymore. That was four years ago. I recently asked Gabby about my situation and if she had any advice for me. Of course she did. She suggested me to be super clear about what I want, and after I’ve clarified that I must clear out any fear that blocks me from believing. I’m working on this and I’m happy to say that I feel things are shifting finally and I feel positive that I won’t be in this situation much longer. I know the universe has my back.
