“Witness your judgement without judgement, accept that you have chosen fear, and be open to receive the help you’re calling for.” -Gabby Bernstein, The Universe Has Your Back
Have you ever sat down, read a book, and felt your soul scream out?
It may seem a tad “woo-woo”, but reading The Universe Has Your Back by Gabby Bernstein did this for me. I often refer back to sections and takeaways from this book, even though I finished it earlier this year.
Gabby’s words and tools helped me to appreciate my life and what I have, recognize that I was trying too hard to control the outcome (read more on that here), and really search deep within my soul to discover more about who I am and what I want.
Here are some of the most impactful takeaways I had while experiencing this book:
“When you begin to slow down and open up spiritually, you may come even more aware of the ways you’ve been resisting true healing. You may see how your addictive patterns have masked your feelings or how your high strung energy made you move so fast that you never slowed down long enough to feel.”*
Without love, without gratitude, without kindness and positivity we got stuck in a state of overwhelm, in a state of anger, in a state of unhappiness. Make the small changes to bring more joy into your life. Listen to your soul, follow it’s message, and trust in yourself and the Universe.
“Speak up, rise up, and show up with Grace.”*
Meditation releases the tension and weight and allows me to be filled with light.
“I witness that I’m out of alignment with my power. I choose to see peace instead of this.”*
I choose to learn through love.*
“Thank you, Universe, for helping me to see this obstacle as an opportunity for growth. I will step back and let you lead the way.”*
The perfect one to end on is the absolute most impactful statement from the book that shook me to the core: “We are resistant to being happy.”*
