Hi Spirit Junkies! Happy holidays! In this week’s vlog I share my favorite tip for tapping into gratitude this Thanksgiving and all year long. This tool will help you focus on what you do have in order to create more of what you want! Watch now and share in the comments all of the greatness that you choose to focus on this holiday season.

In addition to this video I’m offering an awesome gift. The holiday season can dredge up a lot of our food issues. From the Thanksgiving table to parties to sugary treats everywhere, there is plenty of temptation to indulge in old habits and unhealthy patterns — or deprive yourself and never enjoy a single get-together.

Even if your food issues drive you crazy this time of year (or all year), you can create a healthy spiritual relationship to food and yourself.

Join me for Finally Full: A Workshop on Spirituality and Food. It’s a 100% online course that you can participate in from anywhere via HD video or audio download.

In the course, I talk about food addiction and body image issues and guide you toward establishing a healthy spiritual relationship to food. I also share wisdom from my own spiritual recovery around food addiction.

Let me help you get to the root cause of your issues around food. Now is your time to release your fear around food and body image once and for all.

    We celebrated our Canadian Thanksgiving in Oct, but I love this time of year to meet with family and with Christmas just around the corner I believe it’s so important to be in that state of gratitude and really show up to express this to others….love it!


  35. I am grateful for my morning yoga and meditation practice and all of the wonderful people in my life. Happy Holidays to everyone!

  36. Great video. I think we should all take the time necessary to refocus and show our gratitude. In today’s world, we lose sight of what matters the most and how thankful we should be. I am so grateful for my family and friends. No matter what terrible situation I may face, I have others to help me be strong.
    Happy Thanksgiving Gabby.

  37. Happy Thanksgiving!
    I am sincerely grateful for the people that are in my life that love, support and laugh with me! It has been a very difficult year but with these dear loved ones standing by my side, I have gotten through it.
    Wishing you all a happy and healthy holiday season!

My husband who is inching closer to doing what he loves each day. I am grateful for the free and excellent teaching that the internet facilitates. I am grateful for my home and nourishing food. And brownies! XO

  39. I am grateful that I am majoring in a profession that will help and serve children in the future. I am grateful that this semester I have spent a tremendous time volunteering to help students who are struggling, and by doing this, I am giving back to the wonderful world around me.

    I am also very, very, very grateful for my cozy bed!

  40. I am thankful that today is the first day in years I haven’t spent bingeing on food and then with my head in the toilet for hours. I am thankful to have found Gabby’s teachings at exactly the right moment. I am thankful for this miracle. I am thankful for 9 years of sobriety, for my wonderful husband and son, and for the gift of life.

  41. Sat Nam Gorgeous Gabby, I have many many amazing life blessings. Yet the opportunity to share my gratitude for you is too perfect to let pass. I am grateful for your words, your vlogs, your books and all the work you have put into yourself that has brought you to the place that you can serve others in the way you do. As you put me on the very successful path of bringing me the most important thing….Me! Bringing me, back to me! So the gratitude I share is for your miracle worker within and also for myself on the path to find my own miracle worker! Love and light Lara xxx

  42. I am grateful for my sobriety … That I have the opportunity to live 2x in one lifetime. I am grateful for the love in my life .. Both my son and my boyfriend who love me deeply and unconditionally … My life is good and I am grateful

  43. Excuse me Gaby, when you say goodbye in your videos yo say also:”sanap”?? or something similar. What does that mean?
    Thanks so much.

    I thank you for your videos in which I have learnt a lot about light, patience, thankfulness, wisdom, etc. Happy Thanksgiving! =]

  44. Thank you, Gabi, for this lovely reminder. I am grateful for having discovered “May Cause Miracles” in a bookstore one day a couple of summers ago. It helped me start on this journey, and now I try to be grateful every day, because, even though my life is far from perfect, there is SO MUCH to be grateful for. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your loved ones.

  45. Hi Gabby,

    I’m grateful for the love and support of my husband – he is always by my side whenever I need him.

  46. Whilst we don’t celebrate the tradition of Thanksgiving in Australia, i am all over the the fabulous notion of gratitude to attract more of what we desire in our lives.
    For me right now it’s about surrendering to living a life with ease though connection to self and spirits. By surrendering, I’m being guided down a path, one of light, healing and transformation of self and others. What an amazing gift this year has given me and my trip to New York and Omega in June for my birthday was just the crack in my golden budda, needed to explore my gifts. Sending you all a waterfall of white light, love and magnificence. See you in Australia in January Gabby. Happy thanksgiving.

  47. I’m grateful for my nephew who I love so fully & so deeply, without bounds. Who loves me in return & shows me how the world can be new & fun & wonderful. I’m grateful for his smile & his laugh that radiate pure bliss. I’m grateful for his beautiful blue eyes filled with wonder & splendor, trust & love. I’m grateful for his hugs that are warmer than any, bigger than ever with his little arms and open heart. These are the things I hold onto when I’m feeling lost or alone- as far as we may be I still feel the presence of his youthful loving spirit.

  48. Happy Thanksgiving! I am grateful to have the gift of love and share it with my husband of 26 years and my 2 sons. They bring me pure joy to see the men they are today. Everything else falls into place. Namaste.

  49. I’m grateful for you and your work. Sounds odd perhaps, but your books on audible have become my constant soundtrack for the last few months. Thank you for your support through my journey thus far, for guiding me towards finding my “ing”, for teaching me how to create miracles and turning me on to being a spirit junkie. I’m so grateful for the miracle of being led to you exactly when I needed to find you. Happy Thanksgiving!

  50. My dear diva: one of the things I’m most grateful for this year is have knowing you because you brought the courage to my life, courage to follow my dreams working with inspiration, love and spirituality. Because of your example I started my own virtual sanctuary to talk about mind/body/soul health to Brazilians. I’m really grateful for it, thank you, with all my heart. Happy Thanksgiving!

  51. So very thankful this year especially for my parents and their health as well as mine, my ginormous, chaotic, crazy, loud extended family, my past and present friendships, my dogs, yoga and meditation practice, nature for just being wonderful and beautiful, and I am very grateful that I am on a path to loving myself again 🙂 THANKS GABBY!!! <3 <3

  52. I am grateful for having been able to read everyone else’s posts!!! (while avoiding the last minute chores before the in-laws arrive)!!!

    There is so much love and gratitude it feels like a blanket of happy wrapped around me! Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!

  53. i am grateful for the amazing friends and family I have in my life. My children and the house we are blessed to live in! I am grateful for amazing teachers such as yourself that guide us to live and pay forward a life of love! Happy thanksgiving, Love and light!!

  54. I am so thankful for my partner. No matter where I am he is always willing to meet me there and support me in whatever way I need. I am so lucky to have a person so willing to just be and be with me! Thanksgiving to the Universe for what shows up when you are willing to give and receive.

  55. This is cool topic to discuss about. I also want to add more my opinion on this. That is before I don’t really feel to be grateful things I have. When I live trust, slowly try to understand more myself and give my best at work, at relationship… I see I have amazing things that is my time, my work, my process improve and my family. I wish many things wish my family before, right now I really know it so great with me. I really grateful my family that I have.

  56. I am so grateful that after years of praying for a family of my own, I was blessed to meet my handsome, difficult, Italian husband and without really trying we were blessed to have a healthy son 1 month after I turned 41. This beautiful boy is 4 1/2 now, and though life has been beyond stressful these last few years (parents sick, parents dying, money troubles), this child is a joy. I know that since my prayers have been answered before that my prayer for better health and financial stability will come as well. I am so grateful to have a forum to express this, my deep abiding gratitude for what god, the universe, whatever you want to call it, can do in my life. I don’t feel well today, and I have so much to do, but I know that I am being taking care of and loved and that everyday is a new chance. thank you thank you thank you.

  57. I am for grateful for my three fabulous children. The renovation on my house I just purchased almost being completed. My friends and family. My dog, Jackie-O. Meeting Gabby in Miami on her tour in 2012. A successful, fun and exciting career. My life. And so looking forward to a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner with Ron, Aly, Carol, Kyle and Cali tomorrow.

  58. I am grateful for my sobriety because without that I would not be sitting here writing this! For my significant other who works so hard and gives without expectations.For my daughter Kayla and my grandson Tristian for who I am a living amends on a daily basis.For my job(even tho it doesn’t bring spiritual fulfillment I am grateful for it) my home and all things in it and last but not least the fact that I have all body parts,limbs etc.to enjoy the things I have come to love…hiking,yoga,love for the outdoors,my new found spiritual practices..Happy Thanksgiving to all….Gina

  59. I am grateful for all the guidance I receive from you Gabrielle when I start to feel anxiety or allow myself to let my ego get the best of me. Thank you for helping me get centered 🙂
    I am also very grateful for my wonderful boyfriend, loving parents, fun career and supportive coworkers …and my cuddly cat.
    Happy Thanksgiving!

  60. I am grateful for being led to you by my Inner Guide. I am grateful for what the practice of meditation has done for my spiritual journey and awakening – thanks to you emphatically teaching the importance of this practice. I am so grateful for my Inner Guide which is lovingly leading me back to love.

  61. I’m grateful for my career opportunities, my family and friends who support me through good times and bad. I’m grateful to the Universe for bringing Gabby’s books and videos into my life for guidance and inspiration. I’m grateful for my struggles as they teach me many lessons and make me stronger.

  62. I am grateful for everything I receive and the circumstances in which are placed before me which enable me to grow and become more of what Our Lord has designed us to be. The best Gift is what The Lord Jesus Christ makes available to us all and that is Eternal Life….believe.

  63. Many things have not gone as I dreamed and visioned they would, but I keep reminding myself that my daughter, Viki, HAS A NEW GUSHING KIDNEY from my other daughter, Cindy!! There can be no greater or higher power than this “Gift of Life” that is now 5 years old. So, with only the 3 of us as family and trying to build a new support system of people to share my experiences with I go forward, through the challenges of life very, very Thankful this Thanksgiving!

  64. This is so powerful and true. Knowing that what we focus on we become, how marvelous to focus on all the lovely small things and have gratitude for them. Our lives become richer and deeper in every single moment. We shall come to our end of days and think, “Dang! That was a great ride!” Sending love and gratitude to all! xoxoxo Princess Diane Von Brainisfried

  65. Absolutely love your vlogs and books. Been v life changing for me. Unfortunately after paying $149 for the Finally Full series, I can’t access it and have had 2 attempts at contacting you with no response. Any chance of getting this sorted please??

    Thanks, Jane

  66. I am thankful for my three beautiful, healthy, and happy children. For a newfound strength in myself. For faith in the angels that guide me and a Universe that orchestrates my deepest desires. For you, Gabby, as you encourage and motivate me everyday to be my very best and help to direct me towards a life living my God given talents and purpose. Happy Thanksgiving!

  67. I am grateful for my health and well being at this Moment. I am safe in this Moment, I got my family and my friends, a warm bed to sleep in and positive thoughts in my mind. That is what I am grateful for.

  68. Such an inspiring message, gabby! I was stuck in a “have not” mentality earlier this summer. In an effort to reframe my thinking, I started a blog where I have committed to posting a thank you note a day for one year, each addressed to someone or something for which I’m thankful. I’ve thanked fall days to my family members to coworkers to a yoga studio- it’s been not only fun, but transformational for my state of mind!

  69. Hi,

    I really admire about your coaching and meditation talk show, it’s really amazing for me. you keep doing good work for all people

  70. I am grateful for so many things, but most of all for the time I have set aside every morning for prayer, meditation, and writing in my gratitude journal. This time in my morning is non-negotiable and it has truly been life changing. It has helped me push past fears and put myself out there to the world In a more authentic way.
