Book Review: The Universe has your back by Gabrielle Bernstein



 While browsing through my Amazon wishlist before the "Great Indian Festival", this book ("The Universe has your back" by Gabrielle Bernstein) I had added sometime back came to my attention. And seeing its discounted Kindle price (Rs.51), I immediately placed the order.

Some books appeal to your intellect, while others appeal to your intuition. This book belongs to the latter category. While reading, I paused multiple times, closed my eyes, meditated for a few minutes, jotted down phrases in my notebook, and let the impactful lines be absorbed. It certainly felt so magical and serene. The words offered a healing vibe and a gentle reminder to connect with our true nature.

The author has beautifully explained how we can connect with the Universe at any given time. She also explains why our logical, over-planning mind can become a hindrance in receiving gifts from the Universe. There were many perspectives in this book that felt so different from the ones society usually teaches us. But while reading them, it intuitively made a lot of sense. The author's anecdotes lend more authenticity to the topics - how the Universe operates, how it communicates and how we block the miracles it offers. Our logical minds might resist this new way of thinking, but when we are open, this book offers a fresh way to approach life with the help of love, faith, and surrender.

Over the past 2 years, having experienced this first-hand, I now firmly believe in the power of the Universe - every interaction, every book, every person, and every situation you encounter in your life has a reason. The answers you seek or you need to hear come to you magically. Our thoughts radiate certain energy, which in turn brings back something that becomes our reality.

A few captivating lines:

"You see the world that you've made, but you do not see yourself as the image maker."

"We are not responsible for what our eyes are seeing. We are responsible for how we perceive what we are seeing."

"The Universe is always responding to the energy behind your beliefs"

"The world is your classroom and other people are your assignments"

"A simple shift in your perspective is a miracle"

"Our vibes speak louder than our words"

One of my top favorite books in 2022!
