Sat Nam Spirit Junkies! This week I’m sharing a clip from my Miracles in LA lecture. In this video I discuss how stress blocks us in every area of life. Watch this video and follow the guided meditation on how to eradicate your ego, release stress and powerfully activate your energy. Practice this meditation daily and your life will begin to flow.

  1. I am a 75 years old Yoga teacher, who has done lots of different meditations and ways to free herself and help others, but I really like you and love watching and listening and practicing together with you, even though it’s only on my computer screen. Sat Nam Mina xxx

  2. Same like ya g I was also participating the 21 days meditation challenge of Deepak and Oprah , and I feel it was just in time to find you with this exciting video. In general, since I discovered you and your short wonderful vlogs in intent.com (I am from Israel) I seem to build for myself a constant reminder to the things I want to adapt into my life, which are so easy to be forgotten.
    Thank you very much for giving me the opportunity and in such a clear way.Yael

  3. Amazing!!!! I feel so infused with peace and connectedness. Thank you so much I really needed that. I feel a charge of calm, that is both energizing and grounding. So much love.

  4. Loved the meditation, although I have come to realize that my breathing pattern is very shallow with all my breath in my chest. Do you have any recommendations on how you changed your breathing pattern to diaphramitic breathing that you could share? I am having a difficult time with this. Many thanks and blessings.

    1. put your hand on your stomach and on the inhale expand your diaphragm on the exhale allow it to contract in and up. throughout the day check in with your breath by placing your hand on your stomach and practicing this exercise.

  5. Thank you for sharing your clips. I felt such an amazing stress release. I was having a hard time to keep going all the way to the end and I felt so much energy and heat almost like I was in a hot yoga class. Appreciate your feedback. Namaste.

  6. Amazing meditation! I was breathing backwards who knows for how long. Thank you for your williness to make a diference Gabby! Love Ana

  7. I just did your meditation in bed as soon as I woke. I now feel so at ease with my plans for the day, I feel relaxed and happy. Think ill try and do this every morning. Your awesome gabby. Come to AUS soon

  8. Gabby –
    I’ve tried to follow you on several Ego Eradicator meditations but I can’t seem to get the breath right. I can do the “breathing” slowly with my diaphragm going out and then back in but when I try to do it quickly during EE it all goes askew. Can you help?

  9. You posted this meditation once before and since then I did it every morning – it’s how I started each day. But, about 5 months ago, I left home to backpack through southeast asia and then move to Australia (where I am now living). And in my travels, I didn’t always have time to start my day with this and eventually I stopped doing it all together. Thank you for reposting this and guiding me through the meditation and reminding me just how much I love it and how it is such a great way to bust out all the negative emotions in my head before I start my day. Sat Nam

  10. Recently went back to your video from a while ago about ego eradicator and started practicing again, so, as usual, this is great timing! Glad you went into more detail about breath of fire since I have some trouble with that (and didn’t know you shouldn’t do it on your period). Thanks Gab! Sat nam, sister.

  11. Wow, that looked amazing. I still remember my first time meditating with you Gabby and it has literally changed my life. I meditate every single day now. Thank you. Lots of Love, Ritu

  12. Gabby, might you share other songs on your “remove the blocks” play list? I love the first song you played and don’t know the name. Would love if you would share the list. Thank you!

  13. Thank you so much for this, Gabby. Your mention of incorrect breathing really blew my mind. I have always kept tension in my stomach, and never really understood how to get rid of it. I think this is why… and wow, what a difference it can make. Can you offer any tips for how you were able to correct your breath with the inhale/exhale after so many years of doing it the wrong way? Thank you so much, again. Life changing.

    1. throughout the day when you notice that you’re holding your breath simply place your hand on your stomach and check how you’re breathing. inhale and extend your stomach, exhale and let it contract. do this all day long:)

  14. Thank you Gabby for sharing this! I am 47 and desperately trying to heal my heart and mind and find my path. While doing this meditation, the tears flowed! I was so overcome with emotion but continued. I hope that was a normal reaction. I’m new to meditation so I’m hoping that was ok. Thank you Gabby for your beautiful light to guide all of us. XO

  15. I do love the ego eradicator, but for some reason I can never get my breathing under control. I always place my hand on my stomach, but almost find it painful to breathe from my diaphragm, as most of my breathing apparently happens in my chest. Is there a reason for this? Should I be taking larger breaths? Smaller breaths? Thanks so much for all you share with us Gabby!

  16. I was sitting in a Japanese restaurant in LA last week and this guy next to me handed me his card and offered me a free hair blow. His white turban told me that hairdresser was not his first job so I went cause he had that sparkle in his eye and I love kundalini yoga. The blow dry was not good but he told me to practice the Ego Eradicator meditation and Ive been doing it ever since I got back to NY. Amazing! And then today via Kris Carr’s Facebook news there you were. It’s people like all of you that I need for constant reminders. Meditation is not easy but this is.

  17. Gabby, I just love you! I really appreciate your sharing this meditation and I also appreciated your sharing the Wanderlust video. Your awesome. What is confusing to me is why these meditations bring forth so much emotion in me. I literally cry. I don’t do that with other meditations. Sat Nam

  18. Gabby, Thank you so much for sharing this awesome meditation. I have followed this meditation everyday for almost a week now and I feel amazing. I was having a lot of stress and anxiety which has begun to subside. Amazing! I do have one question though. I recently read an article discussing the dangers of Kundalini and the psychosis that could result from improper grounding. Are there steps I should be taking to properly ground myself? Thank you again! You are amazing! Much love to you!

    1. If you’re following the meditations as taught by yogi bhajan (Kundalini teachers share meditations directly from the training manual) then you will be fine. Make sure you’re breathing correctly.

      1. I, too, loved this meditation. Do you have any recommendations on books to read to familiarize one’s self with the Kundalini practice or would you recommend going to live sessions only? I’d love to learn more. Many thanks!!

  19. Ego Eradicator was EXACTLY what I needed this evening!! It is totally going to be my new routine before I dive in to ACIM each day!! Thank you for sharing!!

  20. Gabby,
    Thank you! This day was such an amazing blessed beautiful peaceful full of energy day for me.. You are an awesome woman. I began reading your books and watching all your you tube/Vimeo videos. I love to read the blogs on her future.com. So when you came to L.A. I had to just go see you, I never in my wildest dream would of thought that I would get to speak to you!! Thank you for being such an amazing woman and for inspiring me to continue on a spiritual path. Thank you for teaching me to speak my truth, thank you. *not showing off but, if some thought this was awesome on line, being there live was AMAZING!!! This WOMAN ROCKS!!!!

  21. Hey Gabby, I’m not even sure you will read this as you posted this over a month ago 🙂 I have been doing this meditation daily for a couple of weeks now and really get a lot out of it. I am wondering what your thoughts are on doing it more than once a day? Love xx

  22. Ego means ‘I’. It is my individual identity. Ego is important for me to have to be able to say ‘I need’ and ‘I will’. Ego is what allows Gabrielle Bernstein to do what shi does for others. I would never want to “eradicate” (meaning destroy, which is terribly aggressive) my individual identity; it is central to my psychological and spiritual existence and well being. Most of those in this video are wymin living in a femel unfriendly world who need their Egos now more than ever.

    While I appreciate learning new ways of meditating, please don’t ask me to destroy something that is vital.

  23. WOW – I just did this & it’s amazing beyond my expectations! I heard the most beautiful things from my inner guide as I was meditating during those last few minutes. Thank you! <3

  24. Thank you for sharing this meditation! I started crying like a baby & got all messed up with the breathing but now I feel like something really heavy is flowing out of my heart & being replaced with strength & tingling energy.
    I’ll practice this on a daily basis now. <3

  25. Absolutely love the new spiritual path I am on thanks to you gabby! But I do have a question. Anytime I am doing a meditation where my arms or hands need to be up I have a hard time keeping them there. My arms burn and it hurts. I can only hold them up for about 30 seconds before it becomes to painful. Any suggestions?

    1. Kundalini will definitely help strengthen your arms and release dormant energy! You will continue to gain strength and ease as you practice. Check out this tip on how to create “leverage” so you’re not using just your arms to keep them up. You may also want to try some heart-opening yoga practices and others that increase strength in your arms, back and shoulders and allow you to find support from the earth.
