Gabby Bernstein meditating | Transcendental Meditation Is a Technique That Will Change Your LifeIn 2014 I was invited to attend a four-day Transcendental Meditation training.

This invitation came at the perfect time on my spiritual path. By this point on my journey I was heavily involved in the practices of Kundalini meditation and I was taking myself through another round of the daily meditations from A Course in Miracles. Though I felt spiritually fulfilled, I was curious and interested in expanding my spiritual repertoire.

Throughout my life I had heard a lot about Transcendental Meditation (TM). I had read about the great health benefits and energy shifts TM offered. I was curious and open.

That summer I was living at the beach and I knew that the TM teachers from the David Lynch Foundation were training people in a beach house nearby. I asked about the training but was told it was full. Then one day out of blue I got a text from my friend Michael.

His text said, “I don’t know why but I thought you’d really like the TM four-day training. I put a call in for you and got you into a group next week!”

I was blown away by this Universal hook-up and immediately replied “YES!” to Michael’s text.

After a short four-day training I was given the gift of Transcendental Meditation.

What is Transcendental Meditation?

Through meditation we slow down our mind and reorganize our energy, which clears space for our inner guidance to function. | Gabby Bernstein quote from Judgment DetoxTranscendental Meditation is a simple meditation practice where you sit for 20 minutes twice a day and recite a unique mantra. This mantra is given to you by your teacher. The coolest thing about having a mantra is that it’s only for you!

Transcendental Meditation allows your body to settle into a state of deep rest and relaxation and clears space for your mind to reach a state of inner peace.

A study published in the journal Circulation found that practicing Transcendental Meditation lowers blood pressure and your risk for heart attack and stroke. It could also cut your risk for Alzheimer’s disease by strengthening the communication between different parts of your brain. Other studies have shown that TM reduces stress, blood pressure, anxiety, depression and anger.

TM gives me freedom and peace

The greatest study of all is the one I performed on myself. Through my daily TM practice I have found a new freedom and peace. I feel more at ease, less irrational and more connected to the flow of the Universe.

TM has greatly benefited my relationships, especially my connection to my husband. We practice TM together and feel a deep connection we hadn’t known before. TM helps us stay compassionate, loving and understanding toward one another.

If you want to learn more about TM, a great book on the practice and the countless studies proving its benefits is Transcendence by Dr. Norman Rosenthal, a researcher and psychiatrist. If you want get trained in TM, check out the David Lynch Foundation.

My interview with Bob Roth of the David Lynch Foundation

In the video below I introduce you to my dear friend and the CEO of the David Lynch Foundation, Bob Roth. The David Lynch Foundation has been dedicated to bringing TM to the masses since 2005. The foundation trained me and I am eternally grateful for their support and guidance.

  1. By Gabby, I have your book in audible and can’t seem to find the meditations to the book on here. Could someone please help me? Thank you so much.

  2. Dear Gabby
    I ‘discovered’ you last week when I felt in such a bad place, and the universe brought you to me. The reason I was in a bad place was because my skin had broken out once again into terrible cystic acne and I felt so self conscious and so low…it tapped into childhood trauma of being bullied which I’m about to start EMDR to process this week.
    Tonight the universe brought me this video and my gosh you mentioned how TM cleared your skin!
    It’s amazing how, once you open up to the universe, it just keeps showing you the way.
    Thank you thank you for all you do.
    With love x

    1. It’s so true, Elizabeth. When we invite the universe in, we open up to creative possibilities. May you continue to be guided to the right and perfect resources to support you! xoxo

  3. Hi Gabby, I am a new TM practitioner. The day I started TM coincide with one of the biggest disappointment in my life and TM helped me cope with the situation way better than I expected. I manage to find peace, bliss and even humour despite going through a tough time. I find myself changing in many aspects of my life. I highly recommend TM to people out there. It has changed my life. I never understood the concept of surrender till I learn TM.

  4. Gabby, I just purchased your book from
    Chapters/Indigo tonight after listening to your podcast interview with Jay Shetty. I would love to access your 2 hour Manifesting Jumpstart Workshop, and could send a pic of the book and my receipt to you. Love and light, Jen

  5. Hi Gabby! Do you continue to do the TM twice per day for 20 minutes, along with your other practices? Or, do you blend it with other practices, some days doing TM, some days Kundalini etc? I am considering TM training and want to make sure I can commit before I pay the large pricetag! I have been asking in my Facebook groups and many people have expressed they didn’t stick with it. TM is something we are considering for our family, my husband and our 2 boys. We just want to make sure it is the right fit. Any advice is so appreciated!

    1. Great question, Jody. It is okay to blend the practices as long as you tune in before and tune out after Kundalini. This is what I do if I feel called to use both practices in one day. I hope this helps! xoxo
