In Spirit Junkie, Generation Y self-help guru Gabrielle Bernstein shares the story of her spiritual journey and shows you how you, too, can overcome the fears that paralyse you and manifest the greatest joy in your life. Yet before Bernstein found the keys to success and happiness in her life, for more than twenty years she kept a journal of self-loathing, self-doubt and calorie consumption. Her primary guide on this journey to self-love was the metaphysical text A Course in Miracles, which taught her that much of what she feared in life was not frightening at all, or in many instances even real. Bernstein guides you through the life-changing lessons that she has lived and learned in three parts: 'The Detour into Fear' explains how our minds go wrong and why we become accustomed to fearful ways of being; 'The Answer' provides the necessary tools for reconditioning our minds back to peace and joy; 'The Miracle' helps you maintain your happiness and share it with the world. By understanding and changing our perceptions, resentments will release, hang-ups will melt away and a renewed faith in joy will be reignited.
