What to Do When Things Don’t Work Out as Planned

Tell me this isn’t annoying…

You are feeling frustrated that something isn’t working out the way that you planned and your spiritual friend (ahem, me!) says something like, “Let it go. Surrender. There is a plan better than your own.” Or, “The Universe has your back.” Yeah ok, I know, I wrote the book on that (guilty!). 

I imagine in that moment you’re just like, “Shut the F up, Gabby Bernstein!” It’s easy to think the Universe doesn’t have your back because the thing you wanted so badly isn’t there yet. 

You’re not alone. The other day, I literally came out of a meditation crying and so upset because something isn’t happening on my timeline. But here’s the thing. I sat in my meditation. I let myself cry. I let myself feel the disappointment that things aren’t working out in the timeline I want. And then, I started to feel this sense of peace come over me.

In this video, I share more about this experience—and how obstacles are truly detours in the right direction. 

When we accept that there is a better plan, one that is far greater than our own…that’s when we are Super Attractors. That’s when we are truly manifesting and allowing the Universe to do for us what we can’t do for ourselves. And it’s that energetic peace allows us to manifest. 

Still hesitant? Still thinking, “That sounds beautiful, Gabby, but how the hell do I get to that peace?”

Well, my friends, great news…I’ve worked it out for you. I created the plan.  On January 1st, I’m starting my 21-day Manifesting Challenge to help guide you into the New Year with grace, steadiness, faith, and an unapologetic desire that you can stand behind.  

I’m going to teach you how to manifest—not by how to go get something, but how to get grounded in the faith of what you desire and to trust that it’s on the way no matter what the timeline looks like.

I know that so many people out there had the worst year and they’re ready to have things become better and be new. Let me help you.

No matter where you are on your journey … 

This challenge is for anyone (and we mean anyone—newbies and those advanced in their spiritual journey) who wants to:

  • Do less and attract more
  • Relax and trust that what you desire is on the way
  • Know that spiritual guidance is available to you at all times
  • Feel a sense of awe each day as you witness miracles unfold

I want to show you how to get your energy into such a powerful point of attraction that you feel guided even when things aren’t working out the way you planned. Life as you know it will change during the Manifesting Challenge. I’m so psyched for you to experience such a beautiful shift.

And I’m going to guide you every step of the way.
