What I Learned When I Was Stuck in an Elevator

Do you ever fall into a chaotic place and get totally caught up in the little crap?

I know I do.

Sometimes I can lose sight of life’s awesomeness and sweat the small stuff. It happens to all of us — we get mired in unimportant junk. If it seems to happen without you even realizing it, you’re totally right! We sweat the small stuff because we temporarily lose our connection to our inner wisdom, instead allowing things outside of us to dictate our feelings and therefore our life.

Recently I had a divine opportunity to let go of the littleness and reconnect with what matters most. Watch this week’s vlog to hear What I learned when I was stuck in an elevator…

Do you obsess over the small stuff?

  1. Hi Gabby, thank you for another inspiring video. When you watched the video back, did you notice the tiny specs of white light floating randomly around you… ?????

    1. I just came down to the comments to say the same thing! At 0:42 is when I noticed by the circles on the left then off on and own throughout the video far left by the black curtains or whatever that is. Very clear and noticeable.

  2. When I travel, I feel that I manage the small stuff way better than when I’m home. I normally repeat « Everything is perfect. Time doesn’t exist » and it gets me through so much. The last time we travelled, one of our luggage weighed 44.4 lbs. How cool is that ! On our way back, I found a feather on my luggage!

  3. This video is 4:44 mins long!!! Also, there’s a little orb floating about next to Gabrielle!!!!
    This is a great story!

    1. Oh wow! I was just about to comment those two things! How funny.

      But I’ve been in situations where the universe has literally put me on hold so I could resolve my issues.. It happens in many odd ways! I love the theme of this video, Gab, and I apprecaite how authentic you are in sharing your truth!! Xo

  4. I’m sitting here with a big smile on my face coz I so know those feels. I used to freak myself out (bad morning anxiety) with all the things that I was having issues with at work. As I was walking I looked over the harbour, took a second to take it in and counted all my blessings and gave thanks. Then the littleness disappeared. I also do your meditation on omvana on the train and when I get caught up in the littleness I go back and surround myself with light. Thank fuck you’re around to teach these things!

  5. Thank you so much Gabby for streaming together wisdom of sacred number sequence, A Course in Miracles, and authenitcity, with your beaming style. I have grown so much from seeing another woman live like you do. Sometimes in moments of fear, I think of you and it really does soothe me. WE are all in this together.

  6. I also noticed the 444. I’ve been seeing 44 or 444 multiple times a day since this fall 🙂

    Thank you, Gabby, for this vlog. I’ve been going though some stuff with my boyfriend the last few days that have had me so down and out and full of sadness and fear. Thank you for the reminder to just remember the love.

  7. omg love this and woke up this morning devoted to let go of the littleness and saw your vlog. Wrote a blog on herfuture on how I got sucked into crap this am. love u Gab
    Tell Zach im claustophobic too lol
    this resonated and showed me how guided I am.

  8. Thanks for sharing. I can totally relate. can you do a blog about your personal sadhana ? I’m trying to create my own n struggling to find time n need help. Thanks Gabby. will u speaking at the wellness expo in nj again in march ? Saw u last year n it was great

  9. Gabby- I just want you to know, if you weren’t already aware, this video is 4 minutes and 44 seconds long… soo um, yeah the angels are watching out for you for sure. 4 is a significant number for me as well so seeing it (along with the amazing message within this video) totally reset my thinking and automatically could release my prior anxious state of being. Keep rockin’ it lady! 🙂

  10. Oh Gabs, you are awesome. Love the cursing. Yes, I can be a spirit junkie AND a pottie mouth! Dropping that little shit today.
    xoxoxo.

  11. Love your message Gabbi shared on my facebook page 🙂

    I woke up this morning at 4.44am and then I saw 4.44pm earlier and now I see your video which is 4.44 long. Yesterday we had a power cut in my flat and I was thinking to myself what is the lesson within this for me to learn here. I will reflect on this and see what I messages I get! 🙂
    Thank you again Gabbi! 🙂
    <3 and light to you hun blessings to you and all that you do! xo

  12. G,
    I love how you embraced and cherished the opportunity to be the lighthouse, instead of allowing yourself to be energetically tanked further by your husband’s phobia. Sharing and loving without begrudging. Sublime. Thank you for sharing this and for being you.
    Love yourself,
    Cleo

  13. When I read the title to this vlog, I nearly had a panic attack. For two reasons. 1) I had just been obsessing about the elevators in my office’s lobby and how I’m afraid to get stuck in one and then less than 5 seconds later I open to your email “What I Learned from being Stuck in an Elevator”

    2) I HAVE A MASSIVE FEAR OF GETTING STUCK IN AN ELEVATOR. It’s happened before and ever since I’ve had this intense fear about elevators. So much so that I take the steps whenever possible.

    This vlog was so timely for me in the best way possible. First of all it illustrates that you can get stuck in an elevator and turn it into a spiritual moment, kind of like a pause from real life instead of having a full blown panic attack. Reframe the situation to make it work in your favor. And also, it just makes me think “Well Gabby did it, I can too” should the day ever come where I’m stuck.

    So I know this vlog was more about letting go of the little things, but it massively changed my perspective and fear about elevators even though I know wasn’t your intention. When you said your husband was freaking out, I thought to myself ” yes, I’m not the ONLY ONE who’s afraid of enclosed spaces” because for a while I thought I was weird, or an anomaly.

    So Gabby, thanks so much for sharing this. You couldn’t have known this would come at such a perfect time for me and touch on a topic I don’t even think you intended to touch on. But it helped me greatly, in a roundabout way.

  14. Ditto on all the previous comments. Gabby, I want to Know: ‘What’ specifically, did you do to remain calm and keep Zach calm? My worst nightmare is getting stuck in an elevator. I have an ‘above average’ fear of small spaces. Just would love to know what you did, that I might use when in small spaces (airplanes!). You da bomb; love your work Sista! 🙂

  15. Gabby! Throughout that entire vlog there was some beautiful orbs on your right hand side. You can see them in front if the black curtain. Angels all around you x

    1. Took me a week to watch that video and I’m so glad I did. You really offered up a great example of something that is a true fear (has never happened to me but I am hoping it never does!!) I’m taking deep breaths now just thinking about it!! So great reminder that we have the tools to handle such a scary experience and to let go of the little stuff. I continue to admire your positive but TOTALLY REAL and common sense approach to life’s challenges. Sat Nam Girl Friend!!

  16. Beautiful Gabby surrounded by the lights! this is my favourite video of yours yet 🙂 if there was any doubt of the Presence in your life and the presence you share with us, just watch this back! Amazing

  17. Aaaahhhh… Divinity. I have been seeing 111 & 1111, frequently. It is so fucking amazing to not only experience this, but to feel the sense of security that this brings. Love to you, Gabby B!

  18. Thank You! I cannot begin to tell You Gabby how many times I see 111! My PaPa & Grandma show up as Doves on the power line right next to my home and yard! Yes they Our both gone from this world, but their presents shows up just when I need them, or just to remind Me their here! Xoxo Robin

  19. Such a great story. This is always nice to hear that from others. This remind me to connect deeper and stay on my path. Return to love and be the lighhouse sound so good to me. Thank you for sharing.
    Send you lot of love.
    Namaste

  20. You truly rock & inspire me every time I listen to you or read something from you. Thank you for taking the time to share your wisdom, life experiences and your passion with us. I love that you share everyday “F**K ups with us. We are not perfect & that is beautiful….
    I wish I could get stuck in an elevator with you. Thanks for being also my “lighthouse” & inspiring me to “light up” the world around me..

  21. COULDN’T HAVE COME AT A BETTER TIME FOR ME LOVE!! I WAS GOING THROUGH A RELATIONSHIP SOMETHING SIMILAR YESTERDAY AND RECEIVED THE 9:11 AND IMMEDIATELY CALMED DOWN (I ALSO RECEIVE THE 1:11’S ALLLLL THE TIME AND KNEW IT WAS SOMETHING SPIRITUAL, BUT DID NOT KNOW WHAT-THANK YOU FOR CLARIFYING)..THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU FOR THE VIDEO!! I REALLY ENJOY YOUR RELATIONSHIP SEGMENTS AND HOPE TO SEE MORE GIVEN YOUR STORY IS QUITE BEAUTIFUL.

  22. Hi Gabby, I’m truly a great fan, I love you and everything you’ve thought me. You’re my teacher, my inspiration and for a long time you brought light to my darkness through your books and videos.
    Please forgive me but I really don’t want to recive more promo for the buisness school. I’ve tried to unsubscribe just those emails but I just got a new one so it didn’t work. I’m torn between unsubscribing from all emails from you and miss your latest vlogs. You’re sending out a looooot of commercial… =(

    Love you though

  23. Hi Gabby, this is my first time commenting on a video and I have only come across you recently. I took my first vacation in 2 years last week and your book Spirit Junkie fell into my lap and I read it on the trip. Being a very anxious person by nature with a stressful job, the trip (the break) and the book completely changed my life and I purchased A Course in Miracles yesterday! Woohoo! I’m excited to continue with my studies. With respect to the video, I went on vacation with my spouse and I and happy to say we did not have any major arguments or fights and I believe that was because we did what you mentioned in the videos. We focused so much on the love we had for each other than the other cramp seemed unimportant. This positive shift in attitude seems to have extended into our lives now while back at home and I think I was meant to see this video today to remind me to keep it up and keep focusing on love. Looking forward to more videos 🙂

  24. Thanks for the reminder, Gabby! I find that I have to do the same offsetting with my boyfriend. It can be challenging to be the lighthouse and lead by example sometimes when you also want to flip out and you’ve been hurt, as well. But, an eye for an eye does make the whole world blind and it’s not worth it.

  25. I LOVE this 🙂 thankyou! It’s just what my heart and soul needed to hear to finish releasing some littleness that has been making my heart ache, I’m feeling full of spring and hope! Sending love and gratitude xxxxx

  26. Wow! I also saw 2 shiny balls and 1 feather. Obviously the Angels were with you.

    I wanted to say thank you for this post, this week I got stuck on the littleness. I stoppeed meditating until I notice a bunch of signs urging me to sit down & quite my mind, then I realized: just let the energy flow.

    Your post is just another confirmation: being is more important than doing.

  27. HERE’S A QUESTION GABBY: WHAT IF YOU ARE STUCK (JOB-WISE) AND YOU GOT AN OPPORTUNITY AND THEN IT HAD WAY TOO MANY CONDITIONS AND POTENTIALLY SHORT-TERM SO YOU DECLINE IT. IN RETROSPECTIVE YOU PROBABLY SHOULD HAVE TAKEN THE PLUNGE AND INSTABILITY BECAUSE IT WAS WHAT YOU WANTED TO DO. BUT YOU FELT IT WAS A SIGN – THE BARRIER OF CONDITIONS AND POTENTIALLY BEING OUT OF A JOB IN A FEW MONTHS TO NOT MAKE IT RIGHT (ESPECIALLY BEING SELF-SUSTAINING). HOW DO YOU GET OVER THE REGRET AND KNOWING NOW IT WAS A BLESSING TO GET THIS OPPORTUNITY WHILE ALSO BEING STUCK AND DEPRESSED SOMEWHERE YOU HATE BUT IS STABLE? MY INTUITION IS OFF AND MY MANIFESTING ISN’T WORKING? I FEEL I DIDN’T TAKE THE OPPORTUNITY PRESENTED AND THERE IS NO OTHER CHANCE LIKE THAT AGAIN. HOW DO YOU ALSO MOVE ON FROM THE PEOPLE WHO PUT YOU IN THIS DEPRESSING WORK SITUATION?THANK YOU FOR YOUR WORK. BTW, I AM NOT BLAMING – BUT IT WAS A CRAZY SITUATION THAT PUT ME IN THIS WORK SITUATION AND COULD HAVE BEEN PREVENTED IF THERE WERE POSITIVE CHAMPIONS WHERE I WORK. ALSO IT IS HARD TO FIGURE OUT WHAT PATH OF CAREER I SHOULD TAKE SINCE THIS PATH IS NOT WORKING AND ITS LIKE I NEED TO BREAK FREE – BUT CAN’T FEEL OR SEE THE SIGNS.
