how to tell the truth: a spiritual guide to radical honesty

45 MIN
Listen on:

Today’s episode of the Dear Gabby podcast is a BIG one! The topic is radical honesty. 

As a sober woman, truth is a high priority for me. Telling the truth is a huge commitment that I made 16 years ago when I got clean.

Cleaning up my behavior didn’t just mean quitting drugs and alcohol…it also meant being a clean person

When I got clean, I made the commitment to myself and others to be radically honest and not to hide. I also became curious: What is behind the need to hide? 

That inquiry was a driving force behind the greatest healing journey of my life, which I write about in my latest book, Happy Days: The Guided Path from Trauma to Profound Freedom and Inner Peace

My commitment to the truth shows up on every page of that book. Because before I could get happy, I had to get radically honest. 

We’re often afraid to tell the truth. But when we become honest, that’s when we become free! 


When we are honest and truthful, we feel a greater sense of safety in our relationships. Honesty opens the door to a deeper level of vulnerability, connection and trust. 

When we bravely tell the truth, we claim our voice, our boundaries and our needs. And I want to show you how. 

listen to today’s episode to learn:
  • How to be radically honest with someone you’re upset with, without making the other person feel judged or attacked 
  • A simple prayer you can use to clean up your energy before a tough conversation (this prayer will instantly ground you in an energy of compassion)
  • Why telling the truth is a powerful form of self-care—and all the life-changing benefits you’ll reap from being honest!
  • A spiritual method for repairing broken bonds in a relationship (this works miraculously) 

These practices will shift your relationships with everyone in your life. 

By being honest, you can step into the most authentic, powerful and SEXY version of yourself!
