Book Review: Super Attractor by Gabrielle Bernstein

In March 2020, in the early days of lockdown, I was searching through amazon to stock up on reading material ahead of the unknown days at home that lay ahead of me, when Gabrielle Bernstein's Super Attractor showed up on my 'recommended for you' list. I'd been going down a rabbit hole of moon journals and affirmation cards, and Amazon clearly assumed that this book was just what I was looking for in that moment...and as it turns out it was.

Gabby's book arrived in early March, but I didn't get around to picking it up until April. Initially it felt a bit 'American' as a narrative, like I was being sold a book I'd already paid for, so I only sat with it for short periods at the weekend. Then as I faced the first deadline for my own book, and as I hit a creative block, I reached for something to distract myself and hopefully refocus my mind.

It was like the book had been waiting for me, because as soon as I picked it up in that moment of frustration, the chapters just spoke to me.

Super Attractor is a book that isn't quite what it seems on the outside, don't let the blurb fool you. While it is a book about attracting into your life what you dream through manifestations, it is much more a modern journey into spirituality, peace, clarity and contentment. Throughout the book, Gabby shares her own spiritual journey and how she uses different methods to help her raise her vibrations and connect with something greater. This book is very much a non-denominational approach to Spirituality, as Gabby draws on many different practices from different cultures.

She looks at helping the reader shed the blocks of the 'ego', to stop focusing on resentment, jealousy and comparison and instead to focus inwards on one's self. She shares guided meditations, journaling exercises and many other methods to help you get out of your own way, out of your mind and into your soul.

Previous to reading this book, my personal mantra for a long time had been "everything happens for a reason", and yes, I did believe in the law of attraction and the power to manifest our own realities to some extent. Reading this book in the moment I read it just solidified all of that; it was exactly what I needed in that moment. Practicing Gabby's methods to step away from my own ego helped me finally let go of my fears and anxieties around approaching the work on my own book. Listening to her guided meditations helped me find calm and clarity in the chaos of lockdown. I was filled with such energy and self-belief that I could almost feel my own vibrations lifting.

This book won't be everyone's cup of tea, but if you're curious about connecting with your spiritual side in a fun and explorative way, then this might just be what you've been looking for and if you're on the fence, have a listen to this episode of Gabby's podcast which is linked to a lot of the topics she covers in Super Attractor.
