How a Woman in Angel Wings Changed My Life
This is a story of an awakening.
Sometime back in 2011, I found myself in one of my favorite places to waste time: a bookstore. While browsing the titles on display around the store, I became inexplicably drawn towards a particular book. It's cover was emblazoned by the image of a smiling blonde standing on a NYC street wearing angel wings. Hot pink and black letters jumped out with the title: Add More -Ing to Your Life: A Hip Guide to Happiness. I was immediately intrigued, picked up the paperback and spent the next hour or so cozied up in the store's armchair reading. Though I didn't purchase the book that day, I made a mental note of the author's website, and decided to check it out.
What followed was an unexpected descent down a rabbit hole of personal growth, spiritual development, and endless inspiration.
Serendipitously, my discovery of Gabrielle Bernstein came just on the heels of a complete career 180 from aspiring actress to aspiring health coach. My life was shifting from a place of self-absorption to a place of service. I was introduced to concepts completely foreign to my traditional Midwestern upbringing, but completely enthralling to my closeted new age hippie. I learned how food, thought, energy, and spirituality could transform your world on a day by day, moment by moment basis.
Gabrielle Bernstein has been named “a new thought leader” by Oprah Winfrey. She appears regularly as an expert on The Dr. Oz show, and was named “a new role model” by the New York Times. Gabrielle is the New York Times best-selling author of the books May Cause Miracles and Miracles Now. Her other titles include Add More ~ing to Your Life and Spirit Junkie.Gabrielle, a “spiritual activist” recently teamed up with Deepak Chopra to co-host the Guinness Book of World Records largest group meditation.
As my career as a coach started to grow, I continued my metamorphosis, shifting my focus from food and nutrition to energy, yoga, and meditation. The one constant that remained throughout the years was the inspiration I drew from Gabby's teachings. I found her advice was applicable to every area of my life, be it business, love, self-discovery, friendships, abundance or spirituality. I started to hear her voice in my mind whenever I was dealing with a stressful situation. Phrases like "I choose to see peace instead of this" or "Treat all relationships as assignments" would help me to find the right perspective in any given moment and shift my focus from Fear to Love.
Finally, in the spring of 2015, I joined Gabby in person for her live Spirit Junkie Masterclass in NYC.
The three day course was designed to not only awaken the participants on a deeper spiritual level, but to empower them to go forth and become leaders in their own right. Day one was filled with meditations, affirmations, and transformative self-discovery exercises. Day two was all about business, but not the usual boring business. True to her own authentic voice, Gabby showed us how to build a brand and promote products from a genuine place of service without sacrificing financial abundance.
In the months following my own Spirit Junkie Masterclass experience, I quit my day job waiting tables, doubled my client roster, and found ways to share more inspirational content online, reaching a wider audience. My income is steadily growing and I'm now able to schedule more time for the things that rejuvenate my soul like traveling to exotic places and helping friends with their own inspiring projects.
The reason I'm sharing this with you: I believe we're ALL capable of being a loving example to others.
This isn't just a right afforded to the coaches, the yogis, and the spiritual teachers, it's a responsibility we all share. Whether you're a mother, a father, a boss, or even jet a friend, you can help shift the energy of the world by bringing peace to every interaction.
If you're already in a position of influence in your community, it is your responsibility to ensure that you're leading from a place of LOVE. That's what Spirit Junkie Masterclass is all about.
This message either resonates with you or it doesn't (yet!), but if you're in the first group, you're in luck!
Gabby is now offering her Spirit Junkie Masterclass ONLINE so you can receive this transformational growth experience in the comfort of your own home, on your own time...no plane ticket to NYC required!
