How to Be More Resilient: 7 Spiritual & Practical Tips

share this post:

I originally wrote this blog post in spring 2019, when I started my recovery from postpartum anxiety and depression. Now that I’m several months into my recovery, I want to update this post with another tip.

I’ve been strengthening my own resilience, and in this post I’m sharing my practices with you. Here are 7 spiritual and practical tips for how to be more resilient. I hope they serve you.

What is resilience?

Resilience is our ability to recover from difficult situations and adapt to change. We often talk about “bouncing back” — that is resilience.

When you think of how to be more resilient, picture a reed: It’s strong, but it’s also flexible. It doesn’t resist the wind and the wind doesn’t break it. The reed moves with the wind.

I’ve been building my resilience

In May 2019 I was presented with my own spiritual assignment on resilience. That month I finally became willing to accept that I’d been suffering with postpartum anxiety, insomnia and panic attacks.

Since I embarked on my recovery, I’ve been talking openly about my experiences on Instagram, in my live events and in podcast interviews. I’ll continue to talk about postpartum anxiety and depression because it’s so important to me to lift the stigma around mental illness and give voice to unspoken shame.

There’s a lot more I have to say on these topics. But in this post I want to focus on resilience, giving you spiritual and practical tips you can use to be more resilient in all areas of life.

7 ways to be more resilient

These spiritual and practical tools will help you to strengthen your resilience so that you can show up for your life with grace and faith no matter what.

I turn to these tools every single day, and they me stay strong and nurture myself as I continue my recovery and embark on new adventures.

1. Rely on a higher power.

Tweet: When we’re willing to surrender, an invisible strength takes over and we are guided. @gabbybernstein

When you don’t know how you’re going to get through something, the answer is to give it over to a higher power of your own understanding.

Turning it over takes the burden off you to figure it all out. Healing requires our willingness to heal. When we’re willing to surrender, an invisible strength takes over and we are guided. We open up to inspired solutions and support.

Prayer for resilience

You can say this prayer as often as you want in order to surrender, welcome guidance and build resilience.

Thank you, inner guide, for revealing to me what I still need to heal. I accept this as a spiritual assignment for great growth. I am committed to my healing path and my highest priority is to align with love. I take this one day at a time and I know I’m getting better every day. I choose to keep this in the day. I do not regret my past and I am not afraid of the future. I trust that the present moment offers me resilience now.

Pay attention to the guidance you receive

Once you’ve surrendered it, pay attention to the ways that God shows up for you. I know I say this a lot, but it bears repeating because we can forget to pay attention.

Spiritual guidance can show up in any number of ways…

  • You may feel an inner knowing or hear an intuitive voice.
  • An idea may come through while meditating, or seemingly out of the blue.
  • You might experience synchronicity, such as unexpectedly hearing a song that is meaningful to you or reading a passage in a book that seems to speak directly to you.
  • You may even see sparks of light or feel a rush of love.

I encourage you to write down all the instances of guidance you receive. Use the Notes app on your phone or keep a pocket notebook with you. When you ask for guidance, you will receive it. Don’t dismiss anything.

2. Change your story.

At first, the story I told myself around my postpartum anxiety was, “I’m the victim.” I was devastated that this was my experience, and I was plagued by panic and exhaustion.

Telling myself this story only made me feel disempowered. So I changed my story. I committed to shifting my perception of myself from victim to brave warrior. I’m proud of my willingness to witness the problem and choose love instead.

In May 2019 I changed my story from “I’m the victim” to “I’m getting better every day.”

3. Honor your feelings with meditation.

I find a deeper meaning and personal growth amid the discomfort | Gabby Bernstein | The Universe Has Your Back card deckResilience isn’t about pushing past our feelings or ignoring them. In order to be truly resilient, we must be able to feel our feelings.

Meditation is a safe way to honor your feelings, move through them and feel more balanced. I recommend meditating at least once every day. A consistent, committed practice cleans up your energy and helps you to be more resilient.

One meditation I’ve been practicing lately is the Kundalini Meditation for Balancing the Nervous Energies. This is a beautiful practice for calming anxiety and balancing your nervous system.

Kundalini Meditation for Balancing the Nervous Energies

Kundalini Meditation for Balancing the Nervous Energies | How to be more resilientHere’s the breakdown of the meditation.

Posture: Sit in Easy Pose or another comfortable position, with your spine straight.

Mudra (hand position): Bend your elbows and put the palm of your right hand over the back of your left hand. Touch the tips of your thumbs. Move your arms in so that your palms are at heart center. (See the image of me as an example.)

Eyes: Close your eyes or keep them 1/10th open.

Breath: In this meditation you inhale and exhale through your nose. Begin by inhaling deeply through your nose. Calmly hold your breath for 15 seconds. Exhale through your nose. Hold your breath for another 15 seconds.

If 15 seconds is too much for you, you can begin with holding your breath for 8 seconds and then work your way up.

Repeat this breath cycle for 3 to 5 minutes.

Let me help you stay consistent with your meditation practice

Consistency is key in building resilience. When you have a strong spiritual practice, including a regular meditation practice, you’re equipped with resources to help you move through trying times with more peace.

4. Don’t talk about the problem, talk about the solution.

My Energy Creates My Reality. What I Focus On Is What I Manifest | Gabby Bernstein | The Universe Has Your Back card deckMany of us, when we’re going through something really hard, we talk about it a lot. We obsess over it. We go down Google rabbit holes and find even more to talk about and obsess over. It’s a nasty cycle.

What happens when we talk about the problem constantly is that we give it more momentum. As I teach in Super Attractor, what you focus on is what you create. When you think and talk about the problem 24/7, you lower your energetic vibration. As a result, you become an energetic match for more experiences of that same low vibration.

But when you begin to focus on the solution, you shift the momentum. You begin raising your vibration bit by bit, and you start to attract solutions. The solutions might come in the form of doctors or therapists. They might show up as creative ideas or new perspectives. The possibilities are limitless.

The bottom line is this: If you need to vent, vent. But don’t vent all day. Move on and give momentum to the new story.

Build resilience with Emotional Freedom Technique

Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), also known as tapping, is one of my favorite practices. It’s the divine combination of acupressure, positive psychology and neuroscience, and it can deliver fast results.

If you want to be more resilient, try EFT. You can do it every day, and multiple times a day if you wish.

Here’s a wonderful EFT video on healing by Brad Yates:

And here’s another EFT video by Brad Yates that can help you be more adaptable and resilient in everyday life:

Note: EFT can bring unexpected emotions to the surface, so practice with caution. Remember to take full responsibility for your well-being. If you don’t find relief right away, you can keep tapping until you do.

I offer more guidance on EFT in my book Judgment Detox as well as in my free Judgment Detox Mini Course.

Be conscious about who you talk to

One other thing I want to note is that it’s important to be careful about who you lean on while you’re going through something really challenging. Is there someone in your life who cares about you in such a way that they get really nervous and scared when you’re not well?

Maybe this is the case with a parent, your romantic partner or a dear friend. They want to support you, but their connection to you is so strong or their own fears are so raw that they end up making you feel even more worried. That’s not going to help you.

Remember that you’re very impressionable when you’re healing. Protect your energy.

As much as you love them, remember that you’re very impressionable when you’re trying to heal. Be gentle yet firm with your boundaries. Have compassion for them, but lean on someone else instead, whether that’s a friend, a sibling, a therapist, etc.

With people who aren’t in a good position to help you, what you can do is stay in your mantra. You can tell them something like, “Things are hard, but I have help and I’m getting better every day.”

5. Get moving.

Gabby Bernstein's walking path | How to be more resilientThis is key. Exercise not only builds physical strength and endurance, but it also makes the brain more resilient to stress, according to Princeton researchers.

And let’s not forget that moving our body feels good! Move in whatever way feels good to you. I’ve been going on walks with my family, because being outdoors energizes me, grounds me and clears my mind.

There’s a lot of research on the ways exercise reduces stress and helps us relax. Your workout doesn’t need to be intense or complicated to have a massive impact on your resilience and mood. Just move.

6. Remember that you can still be healing and have a good day

Gabby Bernstein smiling outdoors | How to be more resilientI saved this tip for last because I want you to walk away with it fresh in your mind. This is something we all too often forget. You can be going through something hard, you can be healing, you can be in the midst of recovery, and you can have a good day.

I often tell people: String together your moments of joy. When you feel good, allow yourself to feel good. Life is never 100% anything, good or bad. You may be going through a really, really hard spiritual assignment, but still experience glimmers of hope, gratitude, humor and happiness. It’s safe and good to feel good.

7. Celebrate your resilience!

2019 was a big year for me. I became a new mom and launched a book, and in the midst of all that greatness I experienced one of the darkest moments of my life.

What I learned is this: Sometimes the great stuff can coexist with the tough stuff.

I celebrate my resilience.

Now I can look back and see how my darkest struggle this year was the catalyst for my greatest transformation. I forgive my experience and release it. And best of all, I celebrate my resilience.

The best way to clear out any negativity from the past is to honor your experience and celebrate your resilience.

If you’ve recently been through a difficult time, take a moment to reflect in your journal. Answer these two questions:

  1. What did I learn from the tough stuff this past month/few months/year?
  2. How can I celebrate my resilience?

Reframe your difficult experiences so that you can clear the way for all you want to create.

Final thoughts…

I’ll leave you with this quote from my dear friend and teacher, the late Dr. Wayne Dyer:

Each experience in your life was absolutely necessary in order to have gotten you to the next place, and the next place, up to this very moment.

Spirit Junkies, I hope these tips serve you. Leave a comment below and let me know how these practices resonate with you.

  1. Thank you Gabby for this. I was just deleting emails & I found this one sent in January & the content has so resonated with how I am feeling during this Pandemic that I have noted all 7 Tips down to help me get back my strong resilience again. Around this time back in January I had just passed my Meditation Teacher’s Diploma & I was feeling on top of the World. Ready to start my Meditation Group but then Covid arrived & the rest is History. I am a Reiki Master Practitioner as well as many other Therapies I have qualified in over the years. I have the ‘tools’ but even then it is still easy to be blindsided by something happening which we have never in our lives experienced before, such as this deadly Virus. Reading your Tips has completely opened my eyes to how I had been slipping into the myre, albeit not realising I was. Thank you very much for your wonderful help. I already feel so uplifted by you & ready to bring my whole self & my resilience back to 150%. I live in England, love America, missed 2 Holidays there this year which didn’t help my mental health. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for this help. Kindest Regards Diane Reeves

    1. Hi Diane,
      Thanks so much for your brave and honest share. You speak for so many.
      There is another post of Gabby’s that I think will serve you.
      You’re a miracle worker and a healer! We need your light, so thank you. Your willingness to do this work is nothing short of inspiring.
      Keep it up <3

    1. Hi Allison. Gabby’s sleep issues were related to Postpartum Anxiety. If you think you have any anxiety or depression we encourage you to tell your doctor or therapist right away. If you’re not experiencing anxiety or depression and you’re not breastfeeding, you may want to check out Jenny Sansouci’s book The Rebel’s Apothecary and learn about CBD and sleep. In the meantime, here is Gabby’s blog post about sleep hygiene: /spiritual-tools-better-sleep/ and stay tuned as Gabby is working on another sleep blog in the near future! xoxo

  2. very resonating , I like to read one off your special books
    Gabrielle, from Europe thank you for your written words / advice and strong guidance in the book ; it feels so good to see life in another perspective

  3. I am working through a tough season in my life and this was a gentle reminder that I’m being groomed for brighter horizons. Thank you for sharing your experience and acknowledging that change is uncomfortable yet divine.

  4. Love love love all of it. I think I do so much of it already but needed to read and see /hear/ be reminded of it all especially during some trying times like now. Thank you!

  5. I love the way you describe everything that happens with people with anxiety and panic attacks.
    Its very useful.

  6. Hi Gabby, since i wrote to you i have experienced a great loss of the fear i was suffering from. I feel protected and watched over. Thank you for your intercession. Ann x

    1. Amazing, Ann. I’m so grateful to hear that you’ve experienced this energetic shift. Much love to you! xoxo

  7. My dear Gabby: from Mexico City I can only say thank you! 2019 was a year of full of tough learnings for me; in less than six months I lost my 45 years old sister, my father and my job, and because of this sadness I start looking for comfort and I found you! Thank you for sharing your knowledge with me. I am feeling depress and anxious sometimes, reading your e-mail, make me feel ok to experience this and recall me that there’s a way out. I have been a warrior all my life. This experiences will make me stronger. I needed to experience this to move to new great places in my life. The Universe has my back.

    1. I’m sorry for your losses, Consuelo. I’m grateful that you felt supported by your spiritual practice. May you continue to be guided to the right and perfect resources as you continue to heal and persevere. The universe has your back!!! xoxo

  8. Just catching up on emails and came across the one this is linked to. WOW! This is exactly what I needed to hear fir an experience I had literally 15 minutes before reading the email! How awesome is that!! Thanks you a million times over!!

  9. I suppose there are many angels walking this beautiful earth, but you may be the only one I know. Thank you for waking me up! If I have any spare energy today I send it to you and your family. Love Maura xx

  10. OMG I have only just got around to reading this just now and last night I was helping a friend deal with trauma and getting back to feeling good. Everything I told her to do was in this post. Wow just goes to show Gabby you are an amazing teacher ❤️

  11. I love ad appreciate this post as I am grateful for the resilience God has given me. I continue to surrender to His highest good for my life. I am willing to heal with Him. I want to be the Lighthouse, not the victim. I choose to focus on solutions rather than the problem and this has strengthened me beyond measure. I feel sustainable joy. My energy does create my reality. I love how you say, “String together your moments of joy”! How awesome is that.

    Love you, Gabby ox

  12. Hi Gabby,
    Thank you so much for all your love. You live what you believe and make learning what you know easy for us. I have had “ prayer warriors “, mostly older women, most of my adult life. They have been my strength and courage in difficult times. But “spiritual warriors “ like you have made me understand what it is to have enough love within me to love the whole world. People like you have also taught me that there is no such thing as “ a bad change “. Change is beautiful, needs not be feared, is a trajectory to evolve more of your loving, higher self, and serves as a reminder that “ life “ is intelligent, perfect, and never makes a mistake.
    Thanks again Gabby

  13. This was exactly what I needed to read right now. This month has been very difficult, and I will read this over and over. I have experienced so many traumatic things in my life, and I need to push forward, thank you for sharing. When I have the funds I am going to subscribe. Thank you for sharing your story.

  14. Hi Gabby
    I too suffered from postpartum depression after the birth of my first child. That was over 27 years ago. No one dared to come forward and admit that postpartum even existed back then in 1992. I was able to come out on the other side and heal after I joined a new mother’s support group. There is power in a circle of women coming together to support one another. I hope you have that kind of support now as you are healing. Now I am facing a new healing journey with stage four Metastatic Breast Cancer. I gather with women once again for their support and strength. Your seven steps are inspiring. Thank you for sharing your story and for your courage and guidance. I would add a step eight…..surround yourself with a circle of strong, uplifting, supportive and authentic women. There is a miraculous power and healing in a group of women coming together each week to be vulnerable and accepting of one another. Be well and enjoy life.

    1. Thank you for your brave and inspiring share Amy. Sending you so much healing love and light on your journey. xoxo

  15. Gabby,
    This was the guidance I needed today.

    My dad has Lewy Body dementia. You may not have heard of it, but it’s the second highest dementia diagnosis after Alzheimer’s. It has elements of Parkinson’s Alzheimers and has a faster progression.

    My dad is still living at home with my mom. His mind is still, mostly, clear but his physical decline is significant. My brother and I are both active in helping our mom keep dad home for as long as possible. Most days I recognize that I am spending more time with my parents than I would have if my dad wasn’t declining. When I’m with them I look for, and find, reasons to laugh and smile. My brother and I normalize the declines we see and use humor to keep the situation light. I am grateful that I learned early enough that time was precious so that I can present in the moments with my dad.

    20% of the time my tear bucket gets full and I’m crushed by the knowledge that my dad is disappearing. When those moments of pre-grief happen I let them wash over me and then I think of my dad’s face lighting up every time I walk through the door. In Gabby-speak I choose again. 🙂

    The prayer of resilience is going to at the ready for the 20% moments.

    Thank you for delivering to my email box exactly what I needed, when I needed it.

    1. Beth, by sharing your story here you have inspired me. And I have no doubt that you have inspired other people who are reading these comments. I’m sending you so much love, compassion and strength as you care for your father. Know that you can call on a higher power of your own understanding (whether that is God, angels, your inner guide, angels or whatever resonates with you) to give you the strength you need during this time. Please remember to also take good care of yourself. Your commitment to a path of personal growth is beautiful, and your positive energy ripples outward to lift up everyone around you. The following prayers may also provide comfort:

  16. Thank you Gabby for sharing this. I really really want you to have a good feeling year 2020. Bless you. Bless Oliver, Bless Zach.

  17. This resonated with me this morning. I woke up feeling like my daily goals and plans will never surface. My energy was low and I began to lose faith. As I parked my car to go to work I had remembered the Surrender prayer from Day 20 and said it out loud 3 times. I then remembered this email about resilience. Such a good read. Thank you Gabby xx

    1. Amazing, Amanda. So grateful that you relied on your spiritual practice and experienced a shift in perception. xoxo

  18. Thank you for these gentle reminders that came over to me at 11:11. With the sudden passing of my brother yesterday these tips came just in time to help me during a difficult time! Xo

    1. I’m deeply sorry for your loss, Karen, and I want you to know that I’m holding you with a lot of love and compassion right now. I’m grateful these practices are serving you. If you’d like any additional grief resources in the coming days, please write to You’re in my thoughts. xo

  19. I am a yoga teacher and learning to be a somatic experience practitioner and am in the process of starting my own business amalgamating the two. I am going through a divorce, living alone for the first time in my life, last child just left, and trying to take re-training to help women with complex trauma through yoga and SE. I have been teaching a lot, not taking the time for self-care, pushing myself with additional online training when the Universe intervened and brought anxiety back into my life as a time out. I can relate to the life circumstance where great and difficult things can co-exist and the same time. It is a reminder to me that in order to help heal others I have to be willing to tend to my own healing as well and practice self-compassion. Thanks for sharing Gabby.

    1. Absolutely, CeeDee. We have much more to share when our cup is full. I hope these practices serve you. Keep shining your bright light. xoxo

  20. Thank you for this message! It was exactly what I needed today. Empty nesting is hard…
    But, I am healing, with guidance such as yours.

  21. Thank you Gaby!
    You think you are helping people, but what you don’t know is how much you are helping.
    Because of you …
    I don’t recognize my self anymore.
    I fell in love with my husband again, I enjoy working with people again, I went through cancer with dignity and courage.
    I could tell you the whole story but just I wanted to say THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!!
    And please keep writing!!!

    1. You’re welcome, JuJu. I’m grateful that you’ve experienced these miraculous shifts. Sending you big love! xoxo

  22. Thank you so much for this post your Meditations help me lot through difficult times and being resilience bring me new positives experiences for me .

  23. When my ladies group ask me for my word of the year , I knew it within one second. Resilience ! I didn’t hesitate it came immediately!

    Love seeing this email pop up! The Universe is talking to me through you!

    Thank you !

  24. I am most definitely a believer that all the experiences that come into our lives whether positive or negative are there to lift us up to the next level in ourselves in the most positive vibrations!
    To learn, to grow, to prosper within ourselves and our lives ♥️
    We must honor these life experiences as beautiful lessons from the Universe

  25. My intention word for 2020 is Resilience though I was reflecting today how I haven’t put much intention or mindfulness into this word since the New Year started. I was reflecting on my “resilience path” so far and looking for resilience themed inspiration and there I see the email to this post. <3 perfect universal connection <3 Thank you for this article, this will be my number 1 resilience reference throughout the year!
    -Miracle Member, Rachel

  26. This was beautiful in so many ways. I’m going to keep this as a tool in my back pocket for when things are hard. I wish I had this when I was going through postpartum many years ago. I would have felt better knowing I wasn’t alone as well. Thanks for helping to stop the stigma.

  27. Over the past 6 months I have been through a journey of releasing and exiting an incredibly toxic relationship. This relationship not only affected me but also children who were acting out in some very destructive ways. I knew I had to create movement and leave to save my children at the time. Through the chaos of leaving and the continual backlash from him during this process, my eyes became wide open to realities of the relationship that I just could not see while within it. Trauma has lit the fire for the movement that has been so necessary. It has strengthened me and my kids. I have to deal with it daily at the moment and I know that what has given me resilience to carry on and find the strength show up every day, allow the emotions to come and go but not take over, has been the insight and tools that your books and blog has offered me. Along with other amazing individuals that have endured, found their why in life, passed it on and helped be a tool for healing others, such as Hal Elrod, Dave Asprey, Dr. Wayne Dwyer, Brenee Brown and so many more.

    Thank you Gabrielle for showing up in my life and sharing your vulnerability and living your WHY! You have been such an incredible tool for me to get through this hard but so empowering journey. I can only hope that I too will have the ability to be an empowering tool for as many people with my WHY.

    With much love and gratitude
    Aimee Cholette

    1. Aimee, know that I am holding you in love and compassion right now. I’m grateful that this post is serving you. May your spiritual practice support you during this time. You’ve got this, sister. xoxo

  28. Thank you…. thank you…. thank you Gabby. The last few years have brought many difficulties into my life and they are ongoing . Your book “ the universe has your back “ is my bible and keeps me going and now this ……. it’s just what I’m needing right now……. xxxxx

  29. Gabby…I pray nothing but abundance over you and yours because your work is transformative! thank you thank you thank you

  30. …I was praying for help last night and here it is: your email & the post! Thank you so much, dearest gabby for realigning me again … as you did so many times before … much love ❤️ to you …

    1. Divine timing, Nina! The universe always delivers. May you continue to experience miraculous shifts. xo

  31. I recently went through a difficult time and was able to use all these tools to get through it. The one I can’t seem to connect with is the Higher Power. I’ve struggled with it since I got sober. “God” does not feel natural. I refer to the universe a lot but that also doesn’t seem right to me. I feel detachment from my higher power and I need help with achieving that connection.

  32. Thank you Gabby. This was very helpful. I have fallen of the spirit junkie wagon a bit. I often remember you saying that you don’t care about how perfectly spiritual we are (no such thing right?) but you care about our come back rate. How quickly we bounce back as life will always give us assignments and events to bounce back from. This has showed me how to evaluate my growth. It’s messy but lessons learned from you and others have taken hold, roots are there. A path back has been established. Fog sets over at times but I reach through as I know the way is there.

  33. I am grateful for your energy and wisdom you give freely at this moment in my life. Today I needed this and met another soul who encouraged me to move forward in this way. I am being guided by some very important souls in this world <3

  34. This email post couldn’t come at a more perfect time! Thank you! ☀️

    Looking forward to hopefully coming up for our annual “Boys Trip” to Kripalu in May for Super Attractor! Last year for “May Cause Miracles” was absolutely so much fun, and the tools have been literally life changing in the best way possible. Can’t wait! Thanks again

    1. Love it, Zechariah! Glad the universe delivered this email at the right and perfect time! Looking forward to connecting with you at Kripalu! xoxo

  35. Thanks Gabby! Your guidance is always a lighthouse! These teachings of yours seem to speak directly to me and infact… I asked for guidance a couple of days ago! I am witnessing my path way, my patterns and the emotional responses related to them … I am so grateful for this achievement and feeling supported by the tools your books gave me in the past three years to become creator of my own reality

    1. Beautiful, Chiara. Continue implementing these tips, being patient and gentle with your practice. You’re doing great work! xoxo

  36. 2018 was a very hard year for me. Following you and using your guidance, reading your books or listening to your audios, has been part of the shift to the better. I am pleased to say that I finally learned to love myself and have started to experience joy on a more regular basis. Going into 2020 I have a feeling of peace. I never thought I would be able to say that. Your message today reminded me of the things I need to do more of to stay on the right path. Thank you. ❤️

    1. You’re welcome, Liz. I’m so grateful that you experienced this energetic shift! May these practices serve you as you continue on your healing journey! xoxo

  37. Thank you so much for this Gabby, it has come at the perfect time. I too have been experiencing anxiety after getting assaulted by a client at work. I have been struggling with conflicting information from my work and my insurance company and this has been affecting the rate of my recovery. I really needed to hear what was said about changing your story and not being “a victim”.
    Thank you for your assistance in changing my story, starting today.
    Much love,

  38. Gaby! I’ve been listening and reading most of the things you sent me for the past year and it’s always amazing. So true what you say about you can be on a bad situation and have a great day or you can be incredible and have a sheady day. And meditation and manthras can turn your day around. You taught me that! And I’m the living proof!! It always works. Thank you so much for caring and being so generous!!!!

    1. I’m so glad these practices resonate with you, Maria. May you continue to experience many more miraculous shifts. xoxo

  39. Hey Gabby and anyone else who has suffered from PPD or PPA … PPA wasn’t even a named thing when I had my son. It was hard with loneliness piled on top.
    Now my kids are older and I am a parenting coach. I use my own healing to help others. I made it through the early fire and more fire later on, which built muscle for me to reach out to others. I am new to your work, Gabby, and I really appreciate your teachings.
    ❤️Laine Shapiro Lipsky

    1. I honor your journey, Laine. So grateful my work is resonating with you. Keep shining your bright light. xoxo

  40. Beautiful post about a term I never really considered myself to be until this year with working through a health diagnosis of Chronic Lyme disease and co-Infections. I’m proud of the daily progress and triumphs plus the challenges I’ve experienced because of this illness. I am grateful for the resilience I’ve gained and the growth. Thank you for this post.

    1. I’m so proud of you for showing us for yourself. Nothing is more important our well-being. May your spiritual practices support you during this time and may you be lead to all of the resources that you need to heal. Sending you much love, Alison. xo xo

  41. Gabby,
    Thank you so much for connecting with so many, including me. This was a generous post and so timely for me. I practice meditations you have shared and have the meditation album. So positive
    on my daily journey.

    In my prayers

    Thank you

  42. Going through a divorce… that I don’t want, heart break, grief and pain like I’ve never experienced. This was so helpful… thank you… the prayer came just when I needed it

    1. I’m grateful that these practices are serving you, Nikki. Sending you love and healing light during this time. xoxo

  43. Thank you Gabby! The timing is perfect for this information. 2020 has come in with a bang and all of your points are helpful!! Thank you our Spiritual Junkie!! You are truly a Blessing!!

  44. Thank you. I needed this today. I am resilient and I forgot. My pain is fresh and open but I am going to be okay. I don’t know why this deep pain was necessary but I am going to believe is for the next place.

    1. Beautiful Angela. I’m grateful that you’ve experienced this shift in thinking. You’ve got this. xoxo

  45. Gabby, Thank you so much for being a beacon of light to flow with in a world that can be very dim.

  46. I had my baby in May 19 and have experienced the worst depression of my life. I’m on the path to recovery and grateful for my depression for making me face and deal with my past so I can enjoy my future. Bless you Gabby xx

    1. Know that I am holding you in love and compassion, Katie. May you be guided to the resources and support that you need as you continue to heal. xoxo, sister!

  47. Thanks Gabby, a lot of this I had to learn on my own, but see the Universe showing it to me again.
    One thing I wish you would add or addend is in with protecting your energy. I am really glad you pointed this out! Too many people take advantage of those who are vulnerable and those who are healing share their story. I had been faced with not talking about my healing or having to shut up about my healing because people thought I was less than them or made me feel it. I had to understand what they were doing and really understand how to stand up for myself. This was my path and it sucked! I had to not expect and trust people to be kind and empathic. Sad but real and I learned about boundaries and not to say to much to those you hardly know or who you sense (others may not sense) would be up to no good. Sometimes people forgot this about the world, especially for empaths-they need to hear this!

  48. Dear Gabby,
    I’m very inspired by all that you have written. I am going thru a process of healing as I’m dealing with anxiety, insomnia and old traumas. I don’t quite feel like I’m in my life yet, but these words were very helpful. It’s hard to be patient because I want it all better now… but realize it is a process. Any insight on how you dealt with insomnia would be helpful. I do not want to continue to rely on meds altho I know they were an important temporary tool.
    Thanks for all your great work.

  49. I recently had Major surgery which has made my pain worse, my resilience is as low as it can get with many dark thoughts taking over. I’m trying to swim to the top And I’ve begged with the universe, I’ve asked, I’ve prayed, some days I can get through others I struggle and the tears and frustration flow. I’m waiting for a pain specialist appointment and the Drs changed my antidepressant but they take weeks to kick in. I have started to do simple tasks despite the pain as I’m sick of laying around every day and we are walking most afternoons. Patience was never my best ability but it’s really been tested over the last three months

    1. Wendy, I want you to know that I’m praying for you and holding you in healing light. I’m grateful that you have a support team in place and that you are also relying on your spiritual practice. Continue to implement these steps, being gentle and patient with your process. May you experience a miraculous shift soon. xoxo

  50. Thanks you for this Gabby. I myself have fallen victim during a very challenging time for me and this makes so much sense to keep me from going there. I also was turning to my family and they were less than comfortable in that – your comments re: relying on the right people is important. And now I feel less hurt about their reaction to me. Thank you

    1. You’re welcome Tanya. I’m grateful that these practices are serving you. May you continue to be guided to any resources that you need to support you during this time. xoxo

  51. Gabby….thanks for the tips on depression and anxiety.I’ve been dealing with it for quite some time.Meditation,prayer and exercise have helped me bigtime.I will continue these for the rest of my life….Tom

    1. I’m grateful to hear that your spiritual practice is supporting you on your healing journey, Thomas Sending you big love. xo

  52. Thank you for sharing! I imagine this is going to be as vital to the rest of your teachings that have helped me recover from heart surgery and embrace being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis

  53. Thanks so much Gabby. I am so looking forward to seeing you in Sydney Australia on Sunday. I hope you are enjoying our beautiful country. Xoxo Karen White
