The practice of trusting that the Universe has your back no matter what is the greatest gift you can give yourself. It’s all about living in certainty, in that sense of knowing. It’s about being in a place where regardless of what’s happening around you, you can trust.
With this practice, obstacles are opportunities to deepen your love of the Universe.
Today we’re going to dive into that idea of certainty — of fully trusting in the Universe.
5 steps to knowing the Universe has your back
Watch the video below or keep reading to learn how to KNOW the Universe has your back.
There’s something I want to be crystal clear about: This practice is not for dabblers! We can’t just say, “Maybe, sometimes, when it’s convenient, I’ll trust in the Universe.”
It has to be a daily commitment. We need to be in a daily dialogue with the Universe. We must be in a proactive relationship with the presence of love.
When you have that trust in your relationship with the Universe, that’s when what you desire comes into your life more quickly than you can imagine.
It’s when the path begins to clear and you can see more easily. Things begin to flow. Invisible angel wings materialize and lift you up.
Step 1: Become ready to accept that there is a presence far greater than you supporting you
So I ask you right now…
Are you ready?
Are you ready to accept that?
Maybe last week you weren’t ready. Maybe you weren’t ready yesterday! But maybe today you’re like, “YES, Gabby, I am ready! Bring it on!”
Shout it, be proud of it! Own your readiness.
Step 2: Tap into the feelings of what you desire
Step 2 is to tap into the feelings of what you desire. You can tap into what you desire by meditating regularly.
When you feel joy during your meditation, your connection to the Universe is strong.
Joy is the ultimate creator. Meditation offers us a very powerful way to tap into our desires.

Step 3: Be in a dialogue with the Universe every day
The third step is to be in a dialogue with the Universe daily, whether it’s through prayer, writing or conscious conversation. You can say or write or think thoughts like, “Thank you, Universe, for guiding me to what I need to hear today.”
Once you express your gratitude, be receptive to hearing guidance. This guidance may sound like the voice of your inner wisdom. Listen to it and know that it’s your connection to the Universe.
Step 4: Cultivate the feelings you desire
The next step is to consciously co-create your reality by tapping into the feelings of what you desire and cultivating those feelings throughout the day.
That might mean you talk about what feels good, and you do more of what brings you joy. For example, I know cooking brings me joy.
Even when I’m tired, I make time to be creative in the kitchen and make nourishing food. I know that cooking lets joy set in and deepens my connection to the presence of love.
What feeling do you desire? What can you do each day to tap into that desire?
Step 5: Pray for the highest good for all
Next, stop praying for certain outcomes and start praying for the highest good for all. How beautiful is that? It’s so simple and so powerful.
This is a very relaxed way of settling into certainty. You don’t need to control outcomes. In a relaxed state, we are back in alignment with the Universe. This simple shift reorganizes everything. You can just allow and receive miracles. You can simply say:
Universe, thank you for supporting me. I surrender my desires and expectations, and I pray for the highest good for all.
Step 6: Establish a spiritual relationship of your own understanding
Finally, establish a spiritual relationship of your own understanding. This relationship will change and grow over time. But wherever you are right now, honor it. Honor what this relationship is today, whether it’s magnificent and loud and present, or whether it’s a quiet whisper.
Whatever your relationship to the Universe is today is exactly as it needs to be.
Every lesson and practice in The Universe Has Your Back is about deepening this connection to the Universe and the presence of love so you can attract more of what you want and so you can feel free and loved and supported.
