Oprah and Iyanla: Pause and Listen to Your Spiritual GPS

Season 8
CC | tv-pg
Can you remember the last time you took a step back from your busy life to gain a fresh perspective? For those times when you're faced with new situations or life experiences, Iyanla Vanzant, the life coach and host of Iyanla: Fix My Life, has a simple yet powerful piece of advice: pause.

"If you don't take a minute to breathe, to gather yourself, to pray, you will do what you've always done," she says. "So you've got to be clear enough, grounded enough, centered enough to say, 'How am I going to handle it this time?'"

"That's right," Oprah says.

"So, the lesson is pause, okay?" Iyanla says. "We go from being 20 to 30 without a pause. 30 to 40 without a pause. We go from one job to the next, from one bed to the next. ... Pause, boo."

Here, Oprah and Iyanla discuss why it's important to tune out the noisy world and listen to the inner voice that Oprah calls your "spiritual GPS."
