Episode 060 with Bridgitte Jackson-Buckley, and the Gifts of Crisis
Bridgitte Jackson-Buckley is an American author, blogger, memoirist and interviewer.
As an only child for 16 years, Bridgitte loved to read beyond her skill level. She always carried a pocket dictionary while reading Stephen King books. Displaying a natural talent for writing during her youth, Bridgitte has been writing in journals since she was in the fourth grade. During college, Bridgitte moved away from writing to pursue a “practical and safe” career in medicine.
Several years later, and after a variety of occupations, Bridgitte returned to her first love – writing – and quickly became known for in-depth articles on leading New Thought luminaries such as: Eckhart Tolle, Iyanla Vanzant, Deepak Chopra, Radhanath Swami, Elizabeth Gilbert, Penney Peirce, Elizabeth Lesser, Paul Selig, Marie Forleo, and several others including American singer, songwriter and guitarist Trevor Hall.
As a freelance writer, Bridgitte has written online articles for Examiner, Tiny Buddha, Recreate Your Life Story, Medium, Patheos, Thrive Global and Gaia.
She was the lead writer to launch Oprah Winfrey Network’s Super Soul Sunday website, the 21- Day Become What You Believe Meditation and Seven Days to Restful Sleep for “Oprah & Deepak’s Guide to Whole Health” in addition to various articles for Super Soul Sessions I-III.
With a writing focus that includes spirituality, change, challenge and transformation, Bridgitte’s writing unexpectedly draws readers inward through her ability to convey complex spiritual concepts in a practical and accessible style.
Bridgitte’s educational background includes a B.A. degree in psychology from the University of California, Berkeley and the United States Peace Corps, both which have given her a broad base from which to approach many topics. Being bilingual, Bridgitte has traveled extensively throughout Central America including Belize, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua from which much of her travel writing is based upon. Additional travels include Hong Kong, Malaysia and Thailand.
Bridgitte now resides in Los Angeles with her husband, three children and Miniature Schnauzer, and enjoys working with individuals and organizations who are interested in conscious change, conscious business practices, conscious leadership and empowerment.
In this episode Bridgitte shares how her own financial failure led her to explore the deeper meaning of her life. With survival skills like no other, Bridgitte explored many self help books before diving deep into different meditation practices to help her move into a new life, and a new way of being in the world.
Slowly, taking one step at a time, Bridgitte began to change her daily thoughts and beliefs taking on a whole new mind set. She shares how she discerned between the thoughts in her head and her intuition. Bridgitte also shares her creative practice of making her NEW book—The Gift of Crisis—come alive today!
Today Bridgitte’s mantra or daily walking prayer is;
I stand in courage
I walk in faith
I am not afraid
because . . .
I am not alone
