After the demise of my live-in "forever" relationship, I became lost and was looking for answers. I was gifted a book, written by Gabrielle Bernstein, called The Universe Has Your Back. Desperate for clarity, I cracked it open, and flowed through the easy-to-read brook.
For those reading this that need a sense of clarity, peace, or understanding, I urge you to pick this up. I do not say this lightly, but this book changed my life. It touches on meditation, control, honouring your feelings, and the plan the universe has for you. Not necessarily always a "spirit junkie" myself, Bernstein spoke to me in a language I could understand, and through her writing, she made me feel cradled by the Universe during my own difficult time.
I have implemented Bernstein's meditations and thoughts into my everyday life. I have allowed myself to release my control to the Universe, in belief that there is a plan greater than the one that I have for myself. This, in itself, has given me a peace of mind. I have been able to set free my anxiety, and in turn, liberate myself.
I leave with you a few of my favourite quotes by Gabrielle Bernstein:
- "In every situation, you will have two choices: will you learn through love or will you learn from fear?"
- "Practice saying this prayer before every encounter that triggers the shadows from your past, 'I want to see this person for the first time'"
- "You have the power to create the world you want to see"
- "The key to serenity is trusting that the universe has your back"
Thanks for reading loves! What are your favourite books lately?
