The Universe has your back
When I first read Gabrielle Bernstein’s The Universe has your back [affiliate link], I was blown away. It’s a simple and yet wild statement that makes all the difference. How so? Because it’s a stream of loving energy that wants you to feel good. We’re our worse enemies, seriously. We think of ourselves very lowly, we slash at ourselves, and we even call names to ourselves in our minds! Wicked (not in a good sense!)
When we feel low, when we feel that we’re not good enough, when we feel disconnected, know that the Universe has and will always have your back.
“Energy flows where your intention goes”
When we’re happy, everything seems to go well. We have one of those fantastic days. However, when we start going into the gloom mode, gossiping, or tripping into darkness, everything goes wrong: you arrive late at work, nothing seems to work, the coffee machine stops working… You name it! We’ve all have had one of those days. Energy flows where we put all our intention. So, if we focus on the broken coffee machine, we’ll create a stream of negative mojo. And this will call more of the negative out there. Then, you’ll end up nervous and having a hideous day. However, if you focus on the bright side, you’ll end up having a nice day.
Basically put, we have the key of our happiness and the key of feeling that the Universe has our back (because it does). Hang on! How can it have our back when the frigging coffee machine is broken? Well, because you put your intention into negative mode, the Universe will give you more of that negative!
The Universe will always deliver to you what you want
If you focus on all the darkness in your life, the Universe will deliver more of that because that’s the energy you’re putting out. If you, however, focus on all the positive, the Universe will deliver to you more positive experiences.
The trick is to release what we don’t want by thanking that it showed to use exactly that (what we don’t want). And then, ask for what we want by thanking all the good things that surround us. The more you focus on the positive, the more you’ll get a loving positive stream. The more you do so, the more you’ll feel backed up by the Universe.
[I highly recommend this book. It’s a great read (and not too-long). It’ll help you understanding that joy can be found in a drop of water, and the whole universe expanding within it.]
