We all suffer. We all feel unworthy and abandoned. But identifying sameness in one another allows us to shift our focus from separation back to love. We share the capacity to choose love over fear. @GabbyBernstein

Have you ever gotten a little “judgy” because someone was walking or driving too slow in front of you? Or criticized your partner for not doing something exactly the right way? Or maybe you judge yourself for making an embarrassing mistake or not measuring up to your own standards.

Judgment is as natural as breathing, with our (often harsh) opinions popping up instantaneously. Once you start paying closer attention, you’ll notice “judgment triggers” everywhere.

Today’s guest believes that these constant judgments, of ourselves and others, are more toxic than we realize. She says they hold us back from a more connected, loving and fulfilled life.

You might think that a spiritual teacher like Gabby Bernstein would be the last person to judge people, but as she’s about to tell you — she catches herself doing it all the time.

Which is exactly why she chose to write a book on the subject. To hold herself to a higher standard and share tools that we can use to break this addictive emotional pattern. If you ever get caught in this cycle of judging, whether it’s yourself or others, this episode is for you.

Watch now and learn:

  • What your judgments are really trying to tell you.
  • The crucial role that forgiveness plays in the Judgment Detox, plus an astonishing story of one mother’s ability to forgive her son’s killer after the massacre at Sandy Hook.
  • How your seemingly insignificant judgments can block your connection to a higher power.
  • Why you shouldn’t try to eliminate every critical thought — and what to do instead.
  • And so much more.

I’ve known Gabby for years. While all of her books are wonderful, Judgment Detox is truly special. In times of divisiveness, being able to look at ourselves and each other with more compassion and understanding is an invaluable gift.

*Plus, if you’re about to travel or see family for the holidays — this episode can really help you stay more calm, open, loving and connected!*

One last thing…

You might be tempted to judge yourself as you examine your judgments (helloooo, judgment inception). Be kind to you and remember that we all have much more in common than we realize. Our shared humanity, our flaws, our sensitivities and our desire to be seen, heard and appreciated unites us all.

Thank you for bringing your voice and heart to this community! Your strength, insight and leadership is exactly what the world needs right now.

With enormous love,
