Women Who Inspire, Day 3 ~ An Exclusive Q&A with ‘Spirit Junkie’ Gabrielle Bernstein (& a Giveaway!)
Every now and again you come across someone who beams with positivity and love – this is exactly how I felt when I first watched Gabrielle Bernstein on one of her signature Vlog’s. Way back in August of last year I shared a link to Gabby’s ‘Relationships Are Assignments” post on Intent.com, and immediately I was hooked on her A Course In Miracles-inspired take on the people and events that come our way.
For those who have yet to hear of Gabby, her journey began many years ago after trading in her partying ways for immersion into the popular metaphysical text, A Course in Miracles. I recently tuned in to her TEDx talk where she describes how she was literally pulled toward the text while at the bookstore. It is an inspiring watch!
Her time spent learning ACIM led to a new career teaching meditation to large groups, and coaching others towards finding fulfillment in their lives. Her first book Add More Ing to Your Life: A Hip Guide to Happiness is a best-seller, and her latest effort Spirit Junkie: A Radical Road to Self-Love and Miracles has received rave reviews.
In addition to her books, speaking engagements, coaching and writing for blogs around the web, Gabby has also launched an community called Her Future. The community provides a space for women to connect to talk about health and nutrition, share their blogs, connect for business purposes, and more. It is a wonderful community filled with supportive women that are there to help one another.

TCP – You are undoubtedly living your passion. Would you share with us what ignited the spark within you that has led you to your work today?
GB – “Through my own personal journey of transforming my fearful projections I was guided to teach others to do the same. As a student of metaphysics I’ve come to live in a much more serene, centered, abundant state. How dare I not teach others how I got here.”
GB – “Though I’m perceived as a teacher I am always a student first. As a student I practice the principles I teach in all of my affairs. Each moment of my life offers me spiritual assignments to strengthen my authenticity. Because I’m committed to showing up for these assignments I remain centered in my truth regardless of the given circumstances.”
GB – “I believe our true purpose is to heal our mind. When we restore our mind back to love then we have clear direction on what to do in the world. When our mind is blocked by fear we’re blocking our purposeful direction.”
GB – “I’m about to launch my new meditation album called MediDating – Meditations for Fearless Romance. I’m also in the midst of writing my third book entitled, The Lovetarian Way – A Guidebook of Subtle Shifts for Miraculous Change.”
GB – “It is an honor to do what I do. The most rewarding moments are when I receive tweets, emails and facebook messages from people who have been transformed by the work. My response is always, “I didn’t change your life. You did…”
