Gabrielle Bernstein talks about healing from trauma and the ongoing journey of personal growth.
In her post “How to Heal Trauma and Accept Yourself” (on her site gabbybernstein.com), she comments:
“One year ago I embarked on a healing process as a result of unexpectedly uncovering a traumatic memory from childhood.
“Honoring my feelings and healing this trauma has been essential to fully loving and accepting myself.
“I have experienced many miracles in the past year thanks to my spiritual practice…”
She notes that in her full presentation for the Self-Acceptance Summit, “I share the steps I followed to reclaim my sense of safety, heal my wounds and accept myself fully.
“Today I am a whole, healthy and happy woman because I followed them faithfully!
“Whether you are healing from trauma or simply struggling to love and accept yourself, the Self-Acceptance Summit will help you quiet the ego voice of fear and cultivate compassion toward yourself to improve every area of your life.”

What kinds of challenges do you experience with your self-acceptance?
“At 21, you can live life with reckless abandon, as reckless as your abandon is. Then, at 30, there’s something there are the supposed to be’s.
“You’re like, ‘I’m supposed to be doing this. I’m supposed to be doing that.’ You start measuring your life by what you think you’re supposed to be doing.
“Having recently turned 40, it’s like, ‘What the hell?! Why am I worried about what I’m supposed to be doing? What do I want to do?’
“You become fine with wherever the road takes you.” – Octavia Spencer
