Let’s be honest — that question probably triggered you a little bit.
We all have things that trigger us — whether they be small things like pet peeves or traumatic memories from the past. In moments when we’re triggered, we usually feel an overwhelming amount of anger, anxiety, or even numbness. Just one thing can the potential to turn a good day into a bad day.
Maybe you’re triggered by a relationship that turns serious because you have a fear of abandonment. Perhaps you’re triggered when a friend says a sarcastic joke about you because you’re afraid that he’s serious. Or perhaps, just seeing a messy room triggers you because you think of all the things you have to take care of.
Why do our memories and emotions have so much control over us? It’s because they’re often rooted in beliefs. We believe certain things about ourselves, such as “I’m not worthy, I’ll never have a serious relationship, I’ll never have my life together.” The longer we believe these negative thoughts about ourselves, the more rooted they become in our psyche.
Here’s the good news — if we’re willing to do deep emotional, mental, and even spiritual work, we can heal our traumas and trade our limiting beliefs for empowering ones.
Today’s guest has experienced this phenomenon first-hand, and it’s her mission to share her story with the world so that other people can be healed. Please welcome Gabby Bernstein to The School of Greatness!
Gabrielle Bernstein is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Universe Has Your Back and has written six additional bestsellers including her latest book, Super Attractor. Gabrielle was featured on Oprah’s SuperSoul Sunday as a “next-generation thought leader,” and The Oprah Winfrey Network chose Gabby to be part of the “SuperSoul 100,” a dynamic group of 100 trailblazers whose vision and life’s work are bringing a higher level of consciousness to the world. The New York Times identified her as “a new role model.”
YouTube named Gabby one of 16 “YouTube Next Video Bloggers,” she was named one of Mashable’s “11 Must-Follow Twitter Accounts for Inspiration”, and she’s featured on the Forbes “List of 20 Best-Branded Women.” She appears regularly as an expert on The Dr. Oz Show and co-hosted the Guinness World Record largest guided meditation with Deepak Chopra.
For most of her life, Gabby’s been on a spiritual path. It all started with me sitting by her mother’s side, meditating in ashrams in upstate New York. She turned to spirituality on and off throughout her teens and early twenties, but it was spirituality that saved her in October 2005, when she hit bottom and got sober. The day she chose sobriety was the day she became a Spirit Junkie. Since then, she started soaking up spiritual principles, meditation practices, and anything else that helped her get aligned with her true purpose: to be a source of love and inspiration in the world.
Gabby’s mission is to help you crack open to a spiritual relationship of your own understanding so that you can live in alignment with your true purpose, too! She does this through her books, her speaking events, and her top-rated podcast, Dear Gabby.
