Transforming Fear Into Faith

Updated: May 22

Can choosing love over everything else be the answer to overcoming life's greatest challenges? In Gabrielle Bernstein's book, The Universe Has Your Back, she says that trusting that God (the universe) has your back, is the greatest gift that you can give yourself. It removes the barrier between you and the path to what you desire.

God wants us to experience great joy, love, and happiness, but our own ego and perception get in the way, creating a separation from God's love and his promise. Bernstein provides a framework for tapping into our hidden power of connecting to God's loving vibration Tapping into this love turns fear into faith, obstacles into opportunities, and difficult times into spiritual assignments, breaking the bondage of unhappiness.


She breaks it down into key points:

  1. Your inner stories create your reality

  2. The world is your classroom and people are your assignments.

  3. Your thoughts matter, there are no idle thoughts

  4. When you lead from a place of joy, the universe shows you the way

  5. Obstacles are detours in the right direction

  6. Certainty clears the path for what you desire

  7. When you are aligned with genuine feelings that bring you joy, the universe will support you.

  8. Oneness with the universe sets you free

  9. When you think you've surrendered, surrender more

  10. Be an instrument for love

Bernstein offers these lessons to help us relinquish our need to control, relax into the presence of our power to love, and be comforted by the knowledge that God has our back.


After practicing these principles over the last several weeks, I can already see how it has changed my perception. I am feeling more at peace and I am learning to let go of my need for control which causes judgment, fear, and disappointment when things don't go as I have planned.


Most situations that cause us distress, do so because they stem from some kind of fear: fear of losing something or someone, fear of rejection, fear of not being seen, and a lot of times, fear of the unknown.


Knowing that God has your back releases your fears and allows you to have faith that rejection is redirection to something better and what you truly desire.
