hero image spiritual connection

when you choose to see your obstacles as opportunities and detours in the right direction, you can begin to find a deeper meaning and personal growth amidst the discomfort

Maybe you can connect to a higher purpose, make a real connection to someone or even be set on a path that will change the course of your life in a positive way.

All obstacles that are perceived with love can be transformed into the greatest life lessons.


In this episode of Dear Gabby every single person came onto the show seeking help with what seemed to be an obstacle. After being Dear Gabby’d (coached) by me they walked away seeing their situation through the lens of love. In just a few minutes they experienced a miraculous shift in perception learning the difficult experiences in life actually are our greatest opportunities for growth, strength, and change.

We sat down to discuss everything from success and relationships to finding our authentic self. 

repeat after me: obstacles are detours in the right direction…

When we witness an obstacle as a detour in the right direction, we no longer are the victim of our experiences. When we experience our experiences through the lens of possibility we grow, we heal, we change, we pivot. We are often guided into something far greater than what we could ever have imagined. 

How different would your life be if you made the commitment to see your obstacles as opportunities?

in this episode I will show you:
  • Tools to break out of your comfort zone and truly thrive in any scenario
  • How to stop attracting negativity
  • Ways to change the patterns that keep you from your greatness
  • How to turn grief into inner strength
  • A powerful method to elicit self-compassion
  • How to detach from outcomes and trust the detours

The experience of witnessing discomfort through the lens of love can be the catalyst for our greatest personal growth, strength, and change.

So no matter what you’re suffering with right now, no matter what obstacle you’re facing, I challenge you today to begin to see the possibility for growth. In what ways can you heal more? In what ways can you grow more? In what ways can you redirect your life towards something that will be more fulfilling and more heart opening for your soul?
