Transforming Fear Into Faith

Updated: Aug 9

In Gabrielle Bernstein's book, The Universe Has Your Back, she says trusting that the universe (known to many as God, spirit, truth or consciousness) has your back, is the greatest gift that you can give yourself. She says that by having faith and choosing love over fear you can release the blocks preventing you from happiness, security, and a clear path to what you desire.

Bernstein provides a framework for tapping into our hidden power of connecting to the loving vibration of the universe. Tapping into this love turns fear into faith, obstacles into opportunities, and difficult times into spiritual assignments that free you from the bondage of your past.


She breaks it down into key points:

  1. You have a hidden power

  2. Your inner stories create your reality

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

  4. Your thoughts matter, there are no idle thoughts

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

  6. Obstacles are detours in the right direction

  7. Certainty clears the path for what you desire

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

  9. Oneness with the universe sets you free

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

  11. Be an instrument for love

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


After practicing these principles over the last few 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 the outcome of the things that cause me to feel stressed or anxious. Most situations that cause me distress, do so because they stem from some kind of fear. Knowing that God has my back and tapping into the power of his love, I am able to align with my own power to transform my fear into faith.
