Guest Reviewer: Kris Carr on Spirit Junkie by Gabrielle Bernstein
I couldn’t put Spirit Junkie down. It’s a beautiful book with a profound message: choose love. But let me be clear. Spirit Junkie isn’t your garden-variety new age tome. It’s hip, fresh, edgy, and raw--just like Gabrielle Bernstein. Through personal memoir and modern interpretations of A Course in Miracles, Gabrielle shows us that an intoxicatingly happy and baggage-free life is possible if we’re willing to break our fear-based habits. Simply put, Gabby is a force, a trailblazer, a powerful spiritual leader for the next generation. She inspires her readers to rise up and walk the talk along with her. No matter where you are on your personal journey, this book is a terrific addition to your soul toolkit. Let Spirit Junkie be one of your manuals for a better life and then share the information with everyone you know. I will hold many of its wisdom pearls close to my heart.--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
"So long, Carrie Bradshaw--there's a new role model for go-getting thirty-somethings. Gabrielle Bernstein is doling out inner peace and self-love for the postmodern spiritual set."
“Gabrielle is one of my most treasured soul sisters and a true ‘Spirit Junkie’ in the most fun and exhilarating ways imaginable! I read Gabby’s books for spiritual life lessons on how to love myself and others more deeply and with authentic honesty. Open your hearts to this beautiful goddess-diva and, most important, discover the one that lives inside you!”
“A decade ago, young women like Ms. Bernstein might have been expected to chase the lifestyle of high heels and pink drinks…But now there is a new role model for New York’s former Carrie Bradshaws…well versed in self-help and New Age spirituality…Ms. Bernstein is one of a circle of such figures, influenced less by the oeuvre of Candace Bushnell than that of Marianne Williamson.”
—The New York Times
“For those ready to give up their addiction to suffering or who simply need to release the general malaise of a too-busy, too shallow way of life, Spirit Junkie is a soothing balm for the soul. Gabrielle Bernstein is a brilliant shining guide for all who seek to have more love, more light and more miracles in their life.”
—Arielle Ford, author of The Soulmate Secret
“In this mixture of humor, grief and how-to instructions on achieving enlightenment, Bernstein offers more than just autobiography or a user’s guide to meditation . . . A groovy blend of meditative and instructive writing.”--Kirkus

I am a student and a teacher of the Course and have found that many young girls my age can find it difficult to relate to the material. The truth is powerful and so is allowing the Holy Spirit to guide you to use a language and terms that more people can resonate with and understand. SO I say kudos to Gabby for getting past semantics!! She does an amazing job of sticking to the core of the Course and creating tools and tips that make the Course applicable to every day life.
I feel Gabby's radical road is one many more can be inspired by, including myself. I am happy and grateful to have this book and author in my life.
Still, it is very evident that she is passionate about her work and that she believes in it 110%. I noticed a huge shift in my perceptions after I started adopting these types of practices into my life so I do believe it's a worthy read. Just as long as you don't expect it to be anymore than a long prelude (or advertisement) for her accompanying audio mediations (they are written in the book but the audio versions are an additional $15 and almost a necessity because you can't really meditate by reading a script).
Gabby's latest book is a must read for anyone seeking a spiritual solutions to a more serene, less anxious, more connected life. Through her sharing of her own life experiences she shows the reader not only the how-to release fear and resentment, and turn to love as our guide but the why-to so that we can begin to live a more happy, joyous and free existence.
A truly inspired instruction manual, Gabby describes meditations, prayers and directions that are all inspired by A Course In Miracles. She has also released corresponding meditations for each chapter which you can download from Amazon or from her website. Much like her first book A Hip Girl's Guide to Happiness, I expect that this book will be a well-loved and well-worn constant on my bookshelf.
"Spirit Junkie" is Gabbie's personal journey and interpretation of a "Course in Miracles". I found her writing extremely accessible and she is open & honest in her own spiritual struggles.
Anyway I found the book inspirational, instructional and impactful.
If you are new to the spiritual realm and/or prefer a style of writing that is fresh, breezy, hip, open, honest then Spirit Junkie is definitely for you.
