Editor’s note: Updated in June 2018 for clarity and resources.

Today I often speak on big stages and in beautiful buildings before big crowds of awesome Spirit Junkies. But one of the first talks I ever gave was before a small audience in a basement in New York City.

Despite the radical change in setting, certain things havenโ€™t changed one bit. In this video I talk about how the incredible energy I felt in that dark basement is the same energy I feel when Iโ€™m on a stage today.

When youโ€™re moved by your message, your message will move the masses. @gabbybernstein

  1. Thank you for this incredible message, so empowering and divinely timed, you are a true diamond. Thank you for being you and sharing all you do, a true inspiration. Much love xx

  2. Thank you remind Gabby. I always want to show up with people my message about people can live better if they never forget seeking improve themselves.

  3. Thanks Gabby, this was very inspiring, I’m going to be making a video later and I’ll be much more moved while speaking my messages today because of this video. ????

  4. “If you’re moved by your message, your message will move others.” YES. I love this, thank you so much for sharing this. And it’s so important to remember that if it’s “just” one person, that’s still one person who’s showing up and that you can serve fully. Embracing this mindset has transformed my business.

  5. I spoke for 15 minutes at a meeting of about 25 people. At the end of the talk I was asked to speak at another meeting of about 200 people. At the end of that talk I was asked to speak again at another meeting. It takes on a life of its own when you share your authentic story and message. I’m nervous every time. My biggest fear happened in the middle of my talk- I forgot what I was talking about. My audience kindly reminded me when I asked them in that room of 200 people. I felt such love in that room. I just want to do more. Thanks Gabby for sharing your message. I’m so inspired by you!

  6. GABBY. I am always blown away with your divinity. But holy fuck, you really got me with this one! I am in tears. You are what is right with the world.
    I will be at your masterclass somehow in June. I cannot wait to meet you! I feel as though the masterclass is exactly what will boost my leadership skills. much love. <3

  7. I always look forward to these videos, I feel your messages are oxygen it just feels like I’m breathing in everything you say and it feels so in sync with my life! You are such a huge part in my spiritual growth! You rock Gabby xx

  8. Gabby, I’m sorry, I hope this isn’t too off topic. What should a person do when they want to be a spirit junkie, want to be a teacher, want to be a leader, but have so much anxiety that it makes them feel suicidal? They feel like they have no positive energy to give out and anything they have to offer would be worth 100x more coming out of anyone else’s mouth. I’m sorry for this off topic low vibe question, but I’m just so stuck. A million meditations downloaded onto my phone and the stack of self help books aren’t working. I feel a lot of the time like spirituality will not come to me because I do not deserve it. Where do I go from here? Thank you for reading this.

    1. Hi Christine, have you had professional counsel? I think it’s very powerful to get help from a therapist.

  9. Big thank you,Gabby! In my message and biz, I am where you were 10 years ago and sooo needed this message today. It helped me reconnect with “why I am here”. And you are so right about the SJMC being life changing! It was for me as well and am excited to be back in June! xx

  10. Oops sorry for the f word. May have not been appropriate for this forum. Abby you my dear are the movement you talk about. You are creating teachers by your words and videos and lectures you allow all of us to realize our potential and give us he confidence to grow when most ppl in our lives are skeptical. You inspire me daily. I can not say enough how much I adore the spirit junkie app and waking up to it evey day. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I hope to one day thank you in person. Xox ??????????

  11. You always send the message when I need it. I echo every other spirit junkies sentiment when we say we fuckin love you. You’re creating beautiful teachers and giving us the confidence to go grab life and shake it up!!! ??????????

  12. I’m not surprised that you’ve carried the same love energy for a decade. Watching you speak live last September… you blew me away w your authentic love, passion, and energy <3

    Also, THIS message was just what I needed – thank you for sharing and inspiring me once again.

    xo, Shannon

  13. Gabby, your message is right on – so true. Thank you for reminding me tonight, I needed that!

  14. Thanks for the message Gaby! Reminded me that I am on the right path, joining you in June at the SMJ in a few weeks! I am so excited to meet you and join your tribe! I hope to help spread love and light to the world as you have and know your class will sharpen my vision! Very Exciting!

  15. Thanks so much for posting this video! I often feel the movement you are talking about, but hesitate to share it. This is slowly changing thanks to people like you. Thank you for all that you do!!!

  16. Hi Gabby,
    Can you open your NY class coming up in June to an “on-line” crowd with an on-line conferencing tool? I live in California with my husband and 4 kids and can not make it to do the NY class.
    I’m sure there are many like me who would benefit greatly if we could experience it on line. I am definitely one of those leaders in life knowing that I am called to bringing people…children especially, to be present to their greatness, work to their full potential, and know they are loved and valued in their communities – all by being the best they can be. Hope to see an email that the NY class goes on line!

  17. Dear Gabby, This message is so beautiful! Thanks to participating in Spirit Junkie Masterclass Simone Levie and I have been able to start a movement of spirit business leaders here in the Netherlands. Friday and saturday our first Spirit Business Event was a tremendous succes. Over 160 people connected with us, eachother and spirit in a profound way. I can never thank you enough for the lessons you’ve learned us and the connection we were able to make to our ~ing. Love you! See you soon. XO Dolly PS: May cause miracles was on our altar and we gave away your #miraclesnow card deck and people are already experiencing the miracles! I will send you some pictures.

  18. I am so psyched about the movement! I am deeply happy for you, Gabby, and for all the spirit junkies that are awakened & those who are yet to come to the light!

    I’m starting to create movement in the design field, and this message serves a lot, love just pures through me and I’m ready to take the wheel equaly when there’s just very few people that have signed up so far, to those who will be guided to my learning course in the future. Thank you.

    Shine bright and oh have a blissful Spirit Junkie Masterclass! (I will be there in spirit!! )

    Lots of love,

  19. Dear Gabby, You are such a powerful and lovely force in the world and I value and appreciate your messages and teachings, Mahalo! Now, are you contemplating a West Coast Master Class any time soon? Hope so! Love, Jennifer Blue ๐Ÿ™‚

  20. This message really resonated with me, as I have been doing events in my small town of 800 and I set an intention at the beginning that I would be fully committed to each person at each event, no matter how many there is. I knew from the get go that I may not have many people coming, but at least I found my power within to start living my purpose. Much love, sister, and I thank you for your inspiration and guidance!

  21. Beautiful energy comes form this video… and even more beautiful message ๐Ÿ™‚
    Thank you Gabby for once again giving me information I needed to hear!


  22. Thank you Gabby. This message is perfect timing for me. I needed to hear this as my journey is just about to begin. To share my message and share my light. Your words moved me. Thank you!

  23. Such a great, great message Gabby. Im moved and I’m ready! Ha ha, im a clothing designer and everything has started making sense in the last few weeks. And this message is a further reminder of that. Thank you!

  24. Hi Gabby,

    Thanks for all you are doing for me – I’ve realised that I am an empath and am working hard on self-acceptance as I have always felt lonely and different but now can see why.

    I’m trying so hard to bring love into my life and to choose it over fear but my ego likes to try and trip me up a lot through over-thinking. Any tips or meditations that could help?

    Sat nam, Catherine x

  25. YES! YES! YES!!!!
    Thank you Gabby. Divine timing as always. My message is profound and the movement I’m behind is my passion – {details coming soon}.
    Without that passion nothing will shift or be heard. You are so right.
    I will be meeting you soon, and I look forward to sharing love and light with you in person.
    Sat Nam. <3

  26. Thank you Gabby ๐Ÿ™‚ Sometimes I forget its really just about the love. And that the size of the audience does not affect the importance of the message we are bringing or the magnitude of our light. I am really glad this video met me today. God Bless <3

  27. Thank you for this reminder Gabby. I often feel like I’m not doing enough to put myself out there and create the impact I feel called to. But your video reminded me I am. Because I’m being real and sharing my truth and impacting the people that are in ‘my world’ right now. I’ll create a movement simply by being moved by my message, and everything that is meant to happen will happen from that place and energy of movement. I hope to see the SJ Masterclass come to Europe someday soon so I can make the trip from Dubai and be part of the movement that’s created there. X

  28. This is quite the perfect little message for this morning, as it was something I was really contemplating and reflecting on last night. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for this! <3

  29. I’m so grateful for you Gabby and to be a part of the Spirit Junkie movement because it has totally changed my life! I first found Spirit Junkie (the book) during a really tough time in my life and your work was such a huge part of my healing. I’m now (years later) the happiest, healthiest, and most inspired I’ve ever been! I’m also so grateful to have been a part of the first SJM last September, because the tools I learned there helped shift my life TREMENDOUSLY. It’s not a big stretch to say that because of that class I manifested several lifelong dreams, one of which was to be accepted into an ivy league school to be trained as a therapist. It’s a chapter I’m starting in a few months and I can’t wait! The most rewarding part of this all is when my friends ask me questions about how to start a meditation practice or how to have a little more faith in things. I can’t wait to bring meditation and mindfulness techniques to my new community. I love sharing the tools I’ve learned because I love seeing people feel better! It’s the best feeling ever! <3 always, your SJM sister. Sat nam.

  30. Very inspirational talk about creating a movement…
    Thank you for bringing us your light, your love for humanity and your peaceful energy !!

    Love ๐Ÿ™‚

  31. Gabby, your banker story has made such tremendous impact on me. It confirmed my role and purpose in this world. I am writing a pocket book about bringing peace, love and spirituality to the workplace and it is all due to your commitment to helping spirit junkies become teachers. I effing love you my dear!!!!!
