If you’ve ever wanted to understand why you judge other people and yourself — this episode is for you. New York Times Bestselling Author and co-host of The Guinness Book of World Record’s largest guided mediation ever, Gabby Bernstein is as wise and soulful as she is empowering and honest.
Last year, I actually wasn’t too familiar with Gabby’s work. But in an effort to meet more people and go to inspiring events, I decided to attend her book tour in Los Angeles. During the Q&A, people would ask heart-wrenching questions about some of the worst tragedies and traumas you could imagine experiencing in life, and somehow, Gabby immediately whipped out a response that was helpful, genuine, and eloquent. Since that night, I’ve adored Gabby and her work, and became an instant fan. It’s a true honor to share today’s conversation with you.
Plus, during this interview, we talk about one of the answers she gave during that Q&A, which completely floored me. I think it will empower you, too.
In this interview, we talk about concepts from her latest book, Judgment Detox: Release the Beliefs That Hold You Back from Living a Better Life (which was just released!). You’ll learn where your judgments come from, how to heal them, and who you can become when you stop believing your judgments (about yourself and others).
Let’s dive in!
Check out the episode below:
In this episode, you’ll hear about things like…
- Gabby’s unique definition of “judgment” and why right now was the best time to release this book.
- The methods Gabby uses to recover from judgment (and the 4 questions she asks herself when she notices that she’s judging!).
- Who she wrote Judgment Detox for…
- Why judgment brings short-term pleasure, and then guilt and shame.
- What our judgments are really trying to tell us (and how Gabby’s new book will help you to stop believing them).
Some Questions I ask Gabby…
1. Most people might say that judgment is fun in the moment, but tends to leave us feeling ashamed and empty, even if only subconsciously. Why is that?
2. What are our judgments trying to tell us?
3. The way I see judgment (and something you shared in the book) is that it’s often a projection of our own unhealed wounds and trauma. How do we begin to heal these wounds?
