hero image spiritual connection

A few years ago, I was stunned to find out that a spiritual community I trusted was anything but trustworthy. I wasn’t just stunned. I was blindsided and deeply disappointed. 

It was an experience I’ll never forget, and it’s one I’ve never shared before.

On this episode of Dear Gabby, it’s time. 

And you know what? It’s truly what the Universe had in store. I switched things up today by starting with a Q&A to see what themes would arise. 

The questions led me to some of the spiritual principles that have had a profound impact on my life, and I’m excited to share those with you. And then they led me to open up about a time when spiritual teachers misused their power and did not speak truth. Those were the challenging themes and stories that showed up.

Here’s the thing, though: Love showed up strongest. That’s what’s real. 

reconnecting with your purpose

If you’re struggling to reconnect to your spirituality, and fear seems to meet you at every turn, you need to hear about Brian’s efforts to move more fully into his mission.

If you’ve been wronged by people you trusted, especially if they were part of your spiritual journey, we’ve got some healing to do.


And we’re going to do it together. 

Diana called in, grappling with this exact issue, and it prompted me to open up about my own difficult experience—and how I chose to hold onto my spiritual truth. I’m not letting the humans who caused harm take that away from me.

You don’t have to either. 

how to know who to trust

It’s time to check in with yourself. I’ll walk you through it.

I also share this process in my Audible Original You Are the Guru: 6 Messages to Help You Move Through Difficult Times with Certainty and Faith.

In this episode, we’ll talk about how to separate what is real—love, always and only—from what isn’t.

But how do you know the real deal when you see it? Everybody’s got a microphone these days, but the question is whether they have done the work to earn it. Are they speaking from a place of love? Or is it ego talking?

If you’ve been disappointed by spiritual communities and “gurus” who have done you wrong, listen to this episode for support.

Please remember this: When we listen to and live by our own inner guidance system, we become the guru of our own lives.

the power of love

Tune into my talk to learn how to use the lens of love to transform fear, receive the miracle and reconnect with your truth.

in this episode, I’ll share how to:
  • Return to a place of love, even when fear tries to stand in the way
  • Stop fear from calling the shots
  • Move forward when people let you down, without losing the core truth that resonated with you
  • Steer clear of harmful “gurus” and anyone teaching from a place of ego
  • Know who to trust

Do you recognize your truth when you hear it? How do you separate it from your own fear, or from people who disappoint you? This episode is more controversial than most, but we’re going there. 

We’re getting real, and I’m thankful for the opportunity to speak my own truth.

I hope you’ll meet me in this moment.
