How to Show Up As a Spiritual Activist Right Now

Spirit Junkies, I remain committed to showing up for all of you throughout this crisis. I feel a deep responsibility to share spiritual tools and lessons that help us elevate our energy and the energy of the world.

In this post I’m sharing guidance on how to strengthen your spiritual connection, find a sense of certainty and show up as a spiritual activist right now.

Finding certainty in uncertain times

You can watch the original video below, or keep reading for a breakdown of the messages.

One morning this past week, I went to my Super Attractor deck and pulled a card — and it was the most appropriate card I possibly could have picked:

When I’m connected to spirit, I feel a sense of certainty, magnitude and ease that I’ve never known before.

When I'm connected to spirit, I feel a sense of certainty, magnitude and ease that I've never known beforeSay that out loud: “When I’m connected to spirit, I feel a sense of certainty, magnitude and ease that I’ve never known before.”

I’m coming to you now and asking you to rally as a spiritual activist, as a Spirit Junkie, as a Super Attractor.

When we rely on our spiritual faith, we can change the energy around us.

We can find our power when we feel powerless.

And we can access a sense of certainty even in the midst of chaos and confusion.

Rely on your spiritual faith now more than ever

This is a time for us to rely on our spiritual faith more than ever. When we don’t have answers or we don’t have direction, or when we feel that our leaders have failed us, we have to become the leader within.

Tune in and listen. What you hear will heal you.You have to recognize that you, my friend, are the guru. You are the guru. No spiritual teacher is your guru. No politician is your guru. No one out there can give you the sense of certainty, magnitude and ease that is within you. It’s time for all of us to rise up to our highest potential so we can be of high service to others.

We must cultivate our spiritual connections now more than ever. We must commit to tuning in, to regulating our nervous systems and to feel better in whatever ways we can.

My favorite passage from A Course in Miracles is this:

Where would you have me go? What would you have me do? What would you have me say, and to whom?

I’ve been repeating this prayer every morning when I wake up. When we come back to our spiritual practices, we experience relief, and in that moment we send energy throughout our household and our community. That energy has a massive impact.

When we’re connected to spirit, we feel a sense of certainty, magnitude and ease that we’ve never known before. Right now we can feel a deeper spiritual connection than we may have ever known before — because when our sense of outside safety is taken from us, we have to learn how to find safety within.

When we align regularly, we can really feel calmer, safer, more centered, more certain and more directed.

How to show up as a spiritual activist

Give yourself permission to take responsibility as a spiritual activist now. You’re going to feel a greater sense of purpose, direction, certainty, ease, love and faith come through you as you start to tune in to the level of service that you’re here to bring.

Here are 5 guidelines to help you show up as a spiritual activist right now.

1. Do what feels right

Don’t feel pressured to do anything that is out of your comfort zone. Do what feels connected. When you do what feels connected, you will have an impact.

Don’t do something because you think you should; do something because it feels right. Tune in and decide: “What feels right for me?”

This is not a time for shoulds. When we focus on what we think we should do, we get anxious and frantic, and as a result we don’t make the right choices. We have to be in alignment with what feels right.

2. Serve your community

Chalk art message: "Be kinder"Recently I’ve been sharing on social media about big organizations that you can donate to for COVID-19 relief, but the most important place you can support is your community.

Order groceries for someone in need. Call an elderly neighbor to check in. If you can afford it, continue to pay anyone who works for you but can’t right now. Do whatever you can to be of service in a safe way.

You’re reading this because you are a Spirit Junkie. You’re on a mission to live your highest potential, and you have the power to serve in a magnificent way. I want to encourage you to do that. Support, serve and bring a lot of love and light to this world right now.

Your energetic contribution is significant, so take it seriously. As you elevate your energy, you serve the world.

3. Rely on your spiritual connection and don’t worry

It’s important for us to be mindful of the energy we’re putting into our environment. The collective worry is only magnifying the problem right now. It’s our responsibility to stop giving momentum to worry and start giving it to peace and positivity.

You might be asking, “How do I not worry?”

The answer is to recognize that you have a higher power. Recognize that you have a spiritual practice, spiritual tools and spirit guides to call on.

You have your breath, you have meditation, you have resources. (You can also join my free, online Anxiety Relief Workshop on March 29th for more tools.)

Rely on your spiritual connection in whatever way feels good. There’s no need to over-complicate things. Keep it very, very simple.

4. Meditate to get grounded

Woods in late winterThis is a meditation I channeled for us so we can get grounded and anchor our energy. Watch the video above or follow these directions:

Sit comfortably in a chair with your feet on the floor.

Gently close your eyes.

See your feet like roots in the ground. Visualize your feet grounding into the earth.

Take a deep breath in and feel the energy moving through you, from the top of your crown all the way down through your body. Let the energy move through you, grounding you. Planting your feet as roots in the ground.

You may feel some energy over your head, pressing your shoulders down, resting on your back, giving you a sense of real relief, a sense of grounding and protection.

The energy brings you into your most grounded space, with your highest connection to spirit.

Take a deep breath in and move that energy through you. Feel and see the energy moving through you.

Sense a hand pressing on your back, giving you reassurance, guidance and love. This is your spirit guide, your angel guide or even a deceased family member, whoever you believe is with you right now. They’re placing a hand on your back and saying, “You are safe. You are connected. You are well. I have your back. We are well. We are well.”

Recognize that there is support around you. Call on this support regularly. When you feel out of alignment and misguided, just say, “Spirit guides of the highest truth and compassion, please support me now. I need help.”

Take a deep breath in and ground more.

Recognize the power of your grounded energy now. You are empowered to wake up, rise up, and do the big work that you’re here to do as a spiritual activist.

Take responsibility for your energy, your emotions, your thoughts, your actions, your words.

Release judgment now if you can.

Place your hand on your chest. Breathe in.
Exhale, let it go.

Take a deep breath in, breathing that energy into your heart.
On the exhale, let it go.

Breathe that energy into your heart…
And on the exhale, let it go.

Thank you, guides of the highest truth and compassion, for helping us now to walk into every single home that needs support, to help the elderly, to help those who do not have the resources to support themselves financially or to support themselves with food. To help inspire anyone with resources to show up right now, to be bold, to do good work.

Take a deep breath in and release.

When you’re ready, open your eyes.

5. Give yourself permission to feel what’s up

In order to show up as spiritual activists and be of high service right now, we have to show ourselves a lot of compassion.

Give yourself permission to feel whatever is coming up for you. Watch this video for more guidance:

Turn inward for answers

Gabby Bernstein prayingYou have the power to hear your own inner guidance system whenever you need to be reconnected, realigned and restored. Trust in that power.

Remember the mantra on the card: When I’m connected to spirit, I feel a sense of certainty, magnitude and ease that I’ve never known before.

Relying on a higher power keeps us connected to the spiritual realm and to infinite possibilities, synchronicity, and joy.

We feel clear and directed rather than uncertain and hesitant. When we encounter obstacles, we know where to turn for help and we receive divine direction.

Relying on a higher power adds richness to your life because you no longer feel pressured to figure everything out. You can let go and allow.

When we cultivate a connection to spirit, we can trust in the Universe no matter what.

I love you. Be well. Be safe. Use the tools that you have right now to show up and serve.

  1. Thankyou so much Garielle for all yr help, words of wisdom, i look at the Universe has got yr back everday, i have bits of paper dotted thrughout it, wth different mantras, prayers to say everyday, some days il just say “Sat nam” which really helps.
    Ive been taking all the worries of te world too deeply n felt very out of alignment, last few days.
    Yesterday i asked for help, i surrendered myself to higher power, for first time ever i heard a deep male voice telling me i was ok n safe, i felt immediate relief, i came home and sat in shared garden and then was acting childlike backcombing my hair to a 60s song my neighbour was playing.
    Ive looked at yr guidance for reliving anxiety n also being an spiritual activist.
    Im recieving msges through music, strangers and i even saw th statue of liberty clearly reflected on my wall, interestedly was from.the sun bouncing off a picture of my children when they were young, a good sign i felt.
    Thank you from the bottom of my heart Gabby, sending you lots of love, light, good health and happiness x

  2. You always bring me back to what’s the most important right now, our inner spirit life and connection. Thank you and many blessings of health, peace and safety over your life

    1. You’re welcome, Sandra. So glad this post resonates with you! May you and your loved ones be well and safe. xo

  3. The more I listen/read the more I love you. You are such a beautiful being of light doing your share in this life. I do hope one day we will have lunch together. Not on this Corona Virus situation obviously 🙂 But you are on my vision board and you know how they become true. Have a blessed day in close connection to our guides. xx

  4. And there it is, exactly what I needed. Thank you for knowing what the world needs. I am so grateful for you and your work. Your books and the Miracle Membership has been extremely helpful during this difficult time. Due to this, I feel I was better prepared to deal with our current situation. I am so fricking grateful. Thank you so much Gabby!! Sending you so many blessings, love and light.

    1. Michelle, I am grateful that this work has been helpful to you. Continue to show up for yourself in the beautiful way that you have. <3

  5. Loved seeing you on Good Morning America today. Was a great reminder for me to continue to find my positive in every moment of the day. Be greatful and thankful to continue receiving and guiding others there too! Thank you for being my sign today!

  6. Thank you for sharing yourself so deeply truly you. I am on this path and hope one day I will be able to show it all, the strenght, the weakness, the light, the dark. Everything.

  7. Dear Gabby,
    Just one year ago I ended up in a bookshop in front of your book: “The Universe has your back” and felt so embraced by your smile. Almost 8 months later I end up again in the same bookshop and your book came up to me again, that’s when I took it and from that on it is on my library next to my bed as I wake up and I feel safe as I look it.
    Thank you and all other amazing human who are offering with Love their help to make people feel safe and calm. I feel so grateful just to do a webinar with you because I know how differently it will make me feel and how I will be able then to bring that calmness and infinite love to everyone I encounter. In fact it is my mission too. Thank you from the heart,

    1. Wonderful, Lucia! I’m so glad that you’ll be joining me for the anxiety workshop! May you continue to feel comfort and support! xoxo

  8. What beautiful and empowering words Gabby. Just reading your words brought a sense of calm to me tonight – have been feeling tense, worried and emotional due to the current situation. Thank you and take care of you too. Sending peace back to you. Love Olivia

  9. As always, Thank you. Thank you for being a light for all of us. Thank you for guiding us to be better versions of ourselves. Thank you for helping us connect to spirit and universe. xo

  10. Thanks so much for your light, any time I’m struggling to open up and step into the unknown and allow myself to be the truth of who I am, I imagine you cheering me on! And then I get excited for these new adventures and the opportunity to serve for the highest good of all!

  11. Thank you thank you for what your putting out into the universe. I have always felt like the spiritual guru for my family and friends and now more than ever I need to show up. With that being said, I know I need to replenish my own spirit. Prayer, meditation, gratitude journal and reading your words fills me back up. Blessings!

  12. I appreciate this post! If people only knew the power they held within, we not be in this state. But I can be a light, no matter what anyone else is doing. Thank you for reminding folks of this and for all the work you do.

  13. Thanks so much Gabby and thanks for doing the meditations for all , especially the network news casters. Awesome!!!!
    This morning when I woke up and was stirring. The first thing that popped in my head was Peace is my name…
    How very fitting for these times..
    Thank you for being and Sharing the Light!

  14. Thanks for your kind words, as we all could use some spiritual relief from anxiety at this moment. I am fortunate enough to be able to work from home during this crisis, but I know a lot of people who were forced out of work and don’t even know whether they will have enough money to pay for basic household stuff like groceries and supplies, let alone the rent or a mortgage. I have been spending a lot of time watching your videos on YouTube as well as watching or listening to Wayne Dyer and Louise Hay. I am working on keeping a positive outlook as this crisis will eventually pass. As you said in “The Universe Has Your Back”, this is most definitely the time to choose love.

    1. Absolutely, Patrick! Know that you are serving the world by keeping a positive outlook and choosing love. Keep shining your bright light. xo

  15. Morning Gabby,
    Thank you so much for your support, both emotional and practical. You clearly have big shoulders, as a Mum myself, further along in my journey, I just want to remind you to take care of yourself. All of your fellow spirit activists are sending you our love and energy for you to continue to make such a difference to so many. Forever grateful x x x

    1. This was EXACTLY what I needed to hear, tonight!! Thank you so much, Gabby!! Im sooooo grateful for you and your work! Be well and take good care of yourself, as well!!

  16. I was very much into the universe has your back even through some tough health crisis I’ve recently had, then I fell whilst on holidays overseas and badly broke my arm requiring immediate surgery and our holiday was cut short. I no longer feel that peace I had, I’m struggling to believe that the universe has my back..

    1. Sending you prayers and healing light, Wendy. I can understand why you might be feeling unsupported during this time, but like I write in The Universe Has Your Back, “We are always being being guided even when it doesn’t feel like it.” To experience a shift, it might be helpful to revisit chapter 6, “Obstacles are Detours in the Right Direction” and practice the “Turn it over” meditation found here: I hope this helps. xoxo

  17. Hi Gabby!

    Sometimes I have a hard time putting into words how I feel about light, love, and showing up in this world. Thank you for putting into words what is difficult for me to do. I am beyond grateful.

    Always rooting for everyone’s self compassion and bravery,

  18. Gabby I am reading Super Attractor and I met my angel! I meditated and introduced myself to her like you guided in the book. They immediately told me their name. I’m not Christian and had never heard of it. I googled and found out about them and that they’re the angel of Cancer. I am a cancer moon. I want to thank you for leading me here, and connecting us so clearly. Love to you.

    1. You’re welcome, Mansi! So grateful that you’ve connected with your spirit guide and that Super Attractor is serving you! xo

  19. Gabby, thank you so much for this message. So many folks who are struggling with their anxiety right now need that gentle reminder to rely on their spiritual practice. I recall you saying in the past “when you’re feeling helpless, help someone” and what I am hearing from my clients at this time is proving that statement to be very true. Looking forward to your workshop next weekend – it is much needed.

  20. Thank you, Gabby. I have become a big fan of yours and am also feeling called now more than ever to be a light in the world. I am going to be reading more of your books, meditations, and joining your membership. I truly wish you could do one-on-one mentorship or a conference right now!
    Bless you!

    1. I’m so glad that my books and meditations are resonating with you! Wonderful that you’ll be joining the membership– I look forward to connecting with you there! Sending you big love. xoxo

  21. I am praying for Carthage a ER consultant who has tested positive from working with so many patients carrying the virus. I also pray for my daughter who has anxiety and asthma and my son who will be serving as a royal artillery officer being asked to serve our country in its time of crisis.
    I pray for my gorgeous neighbour Barbara who lost her sister to heart and lung failure last week.
    I pray for all our community, Gabby and family.

    Thank you Lord and my protector Arch Angel Michael
    Let my brand be of service to you as I have lost my consultancy income today. My my experience skills and tools be of service to you all.

    1. Beautiful, Carolyn. I will add these people to my prayers as well. Sending you peace and faith. xoxo

  22. I’m considering taking the Faith Over Fear online course – is this workshop similar to it?

    Thank you Gabby, for sharing all of these resources and being present for all of us now. We appreciate you!

    1. Great question, Kristin. The content for the upcoming anxiety workshop will differ from Faith Over Fear.
      Faith Over Fear is all about establishing a relationship with your higher power and strengthening your faith. The Anxiety Workshop will focus on tips, tools and practices to reduce anxiety.

      1. Thank you, Gabby. I completely spiraled into depression/anxiety last night & added to the collective fear by posting (then deleting) on FB my concerns for people losing their livelihood. I’ve been in such a bad place mentally since last night, & I asked for guidance this morning. A song on the radio spoke to me…& I found your link in my email. I’m feeling led & am choosing again! I’m also going to re-read some of my favorite parts from your books today.
        Thank you for being a light, Gabby!

  23. Gabrielle, you are showing up in such a deep and sincere way for the world right now. I applaud you and praise you. You are a powerful spirit. Thank you for your guidance.

  24. Thank you for this and for everything you’re doing, Gabby. Honestly, you are getting me through these days! Everyday feels like a new challenge–but I’m reframing my mind to see it as a new opportunity to practice my faith and feel connected to spirit. And I finally have the time to meditate more than once a day! It’s the small things sometimes…Sending much love and gratitude to you! And hope you and your family are well and safe. Xoxo, Emma

    1. The Universe knows what is up Lise. I’m grateful that you connected with this message when you needed it most. xo

  25. Thank you so much for being such a calming presence during this time when the rest of the world is freaking out. I’m just beginning on the spiritual path, and your message and tools are opening me up to a new sense of being protected and secure. You’re the best!

  26. Hi Gabby, Once again thank you so much for all you have been doing for all of us. It has been great sharing your teachings with friends and family who are now also finding comfort in your guidance.
    Ps Is there a link for the grounding meditation in this email?
    Thank you again

    1. Great question, Andrea. The grounding meditation is included in the 2nd facebook live video within the blog post. xoxo

  27. Love you to Gabby and thank you for your continued support and guidance. I feel much better every day knowing now what I know about the universe and my guides who help me all the time with decisions and solutions.
    I hope you and your family stay safe and all the community peace, love and wellness.
    Lots of love
