As soon as I received Gabby Bernstein's new book, Happy Days: The Guided Path from Trauma to Profound Freedom and Inner Peace, I couldn't put it down. It took me less than 48 hours to finish (which, considering work and motherhood, is very unusual for me.) Gabby Bernstein is a household name in the spiritual and wellness space. Over the last decade, she has supported people on their spiritual journey. If you know Gabby and her work, you know she doesn't shy away from the deeper connections and conversations.
But this book is unlike anything she's ever written.
She calls it her most important message to date. It would be an understatement to say I am proud of Gabby and the truth and vulnerability she has poured into these pages. This book details her experiences with sexual abuse and trauma as a child for the first time. She also discusses her postpartum depression.
This may already be triggering something deep inside you, but I encourage you to listen to this conversation. Because what unfolds on the other side is a plan for transforming the pain of your past, whatever that may be, into newfound strength and freedom.
• Why most people feel stuck in patterns that make them unhappy—and what to do about it
• 9 transformational, yet untapped, techniques for serenity and genuine happiness—from techniques for “reparenting” yourself to bodywork practices for freeing the stuck energy of past trauma
• The mindset shift that can do more for you than decades of personal work
• How to go into the places that scare you—and come away freer than ever before
“This book is my gift to you,” Gabby writes. “It will answer your questions about why you feel blocked, scared, anxious, depressed, or alone, and it will liberate you from the belief system that has kept you small for so long. . . . By taking this path you will become the best version of yourself. You will become new.”
