Sometimes it feels very easy to slip into the void of negative thinking. In this Speakeasy for Wanderlust Squaw Valley 2014, Gabrielle Bernstein makes it even easier to right the ship and step back into the light. Gabby shares some intimate stories from her personal life, from defining childhood traumas to very recent examples of how she can sense it when her thinking enters into the judgmental and separatist mindset. From these experiences, she demonstrates how to pull out of those thoughts, and to choose the light. “I challenge you as you go from tent to tent here at Wanderlust and you get onto that mat and you say, 'My practice wasn’t that great this morning,' or, 'I shouldn’t have eaten that vegan brownie,' or, 'I wish I was as good as that teacher but I'll never get there.' I challenge you, when you’re in the separation, to choose again, and to open your eyes to the light that is around you. When you’re having those moments of separation and judgment, I invite you to open up, to choose again, to ask. You’ll be restored, you’ll be rejuvenated, and all that separation will be dissolved by the light.” You can apply this to even the smallest decisions and moments in your life, or if what you’re seeking is a larger life overhaul, Gabby has the tools for you, too. She gives you three very straightforward steps to take when you want to finally make the changes you know you need to turn your life around. It all starts with four simple words: “I want to change.” Dive into this Speakeasy with Gabby to learn more about:
