Super Attractor by Gabrielle BernsteinI’m preparing for the release of my new book, Super Attractor, which comes out on Sept. 24th, 2019. (You can preorder the book now and get my Manifesting Jumpstart Workshop FREE!)

As I get ready for its launch, I want to prepare you, too!

In this post I want to give you a simple 3-step process that will help you get into alignment with your Super Attractor energy by clearing fear and resistance in the moment.

We all have fear and resistance

It’s important to understand that we all resist and we all have fear. In fact, we must acknowledge our resistance in order to be free from it. We must recognize that while we have a loving miracle mindset that wants to be at peace, we also have a wrong mind. That wrong mind says, “I don’t want to be free, I don’t want to give up judgment, I don’t want to release control.”

Even in the midst of writing The Universe Has Your Back, several years into my career as a spiritual teacher, I discovered that I still had a lot of resistance to heal. This realization hit me in a huge and scary way.

Watch this video to hear my story. I want you to know you’re not alone, and that I will always be real with you.

Releasing fear and aligning with love

As I say in the video, my meltdown on the yoga mat showed me that I was out of spiritual alignment. I had to become brave enough to wonder, “What are those dark corners that are still lingering after all these years?” Brave enough to look at the resistance that I’d created, the walls that I’d built up against the presence of the truth.

So I got to work and I used myself as a divine experiment.

The first thing I did was ask myself, “How can I go deeper? How can I look more closely at this resistance? What can I do to become more conscious and more aware of the ways that I’m blocking myself from living in grace, living with a sense of peace, and transforming my fear into faith?”

Every day is a new beginning

You can always begin again | Gabby Bernstein | How to Release Fear and Get into Spiritual Alignment to Attract Your DesiresWhat I learned is that no matter how far along you are on your spiritual path, you can always begin again.

Every day is a new beginning. Every morning gives us an opportunity to say, “Let’s look a little bit more closely at the blocks to the presence of love within me.”

As a student and a teacher of A Course in Miracles, I know that I’m not here to teach you the meaning of love. I’m here to teach you how to release the blocks to the presence of love. As we release the blocks, we begin to get into spiritual alignment and reconnect with our Super Attractor power.

3 steps to get back into spiritual alignment

The presence of fear is the greatest block to the presence of love. When our fearful thoughts take over, we get caught up in littleness and cut off our connection to our power.

Whenever we find ourselves stuck in our ego’s fear, we must commit to releasing what blocks us from love. That means, as A Course in Miracles says, we can “no longer be tolerant of mind-wandering.” Follow these three simple steps to begin clearing fear and realigning with love.

Step 1: Witness your thoughts

Whenever your mind starts spiraling into fearful, chaotic thoughts, the first step is to recognize them as your resistance to love.

Witness the thoughts gently and without judgment, and remember that they’re blocking you from your true connection to the Universe and your Super Attractor power.

Step 2: Pray

The next step is to detach from your fearful thoughts through prayer and allow the loving energy of the Universe to guide your thoughts from littleness and doubt back to love.

Use this prayer:

I step back and let the Universe lead the way.

This simple prayer immediately releases you from meaningless mind-wandering and brings you back into spiritual alignment.

You can say this prayer all throughout the day to stay in constant contact with the love of the Universe. Turn to it whenever fear has you in a headlock.

Step 3: Calibrate your energy by meditating

I meditate daily in order to enhance my connection to the Universe and fine-tune my energy. Meditation strips away doubt, limitation and fear to reconnect us with the flow of love.

While sitting in the deep stillness of meditation, I can notice my energy shift as it reorganizes with the energy of the Universe. Calibrating your energy in this way is like a musician tuning an instrument. Once we’re tuned-in and connected, we can become aware of the synchronicity and support all around us.

Our work is to clear the blocks

I choose to learn through love | The Universe Has Your Back card deck by Gabby BernsteinThe awesome thing about aligning with love is that the work is very simple. A Course in Miracles says, “We must not seek for the meaning of love but instead seek to remove all the barriers to love’s presence.”

Removing the barriers: That is our job. It’s not always easy, but when you have the willingness, the Universe will guide you.

Witnessing your fearful thoughts and turning them over to the Universe will help guide you back into spiritual alignment on a moment-to-moment basis. Meditating regularly will help you stay energetically aligned on a consistent basis.

And for those times when you’re dealing with something really difficult, learn how to show up for your spiritual assignments with grace and follow my five steps to spiritual surrender.

Synchronicity, guidance, healing and abundance are available to us all the time. All we need to do is align with the energy of the Universe so that we can get into the flow of supportive, loving energy. This simple practice will help you get back into alignment.

  1. Thank you so much for your wisdom gabby! I’m in my 2nd week of may cause miracles and I’m just really struggling. I’m in recovery from a drug addiction that lasted 15 years. I have the longest amount of clean time than I’ve ever had which is 8 months. The problem/fear that I keep coming across is SO MUCH FEAR OF RELAPSE! This thought haunts me! I feel like if I mess up spiritually or don’t do everything “perfect” than that means I’m going to relapse. I’m in recovery from heroin and for me to relapse might mean death and I feel like I just can’t shake that black cloud that constantly hangs over my head. What do I do? Thank you

    1. Congratulations on getting sober, my friend. I understand how overpowering that addiction can feel. If you haven’t read my book, Spirit Junkie, I definitely recommend checking it out. This book has been an inspiration for so many people’s sobriety.

      Have you ever considered going to an Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) meeting? AA has saved many lives. I suggest Googling AA in your area and checking out a meeting. The 12 Step Program is a supportive community that reminds you to take recovery one day at a time.

      Also, check out the website intherooms.com. It’s a great place for online addiction support.

      Finally, you might find this blog post helpful where I share the tools I use in my sober recovery: https://gabbybernstein.com/5-spiritual-tools-use-sober-recovery/.

      Sending you a lot of love, a lot of light. xo

  2. Dear Gabby,

    First of all, thank you for the work you do and all the help and guidance you give. <3

    I have one question, and I really need your help. I just started my journey with you a couple of months ago, I’m reading all of your books, using your meditations and basically trying to build all of the healing practices you give into my life. It’s not easy, I realize that my resistance is huge, but I’m patient with myself, because I was on the rock bottom when I started my journey. And I realize that healing will take time.
    A big part of my healing was cutting out one very toxic relationship out of my life. I had this friend for about 12 years, she was super important to me, and this person had a huge influence on my life. Basically, she was my life, we created our parallel universe and lived there just for us, ignoring the real world. But then it became toxic, and after 1528293th betrayal I realized that it had to end.
    Funny part that I need your help with is this. I work really hard to let go of her, my life was destroyed at first, but now I’m feeling like my healing had began, sometimes I feel super inspired and aligned, I really believe in all of that and I can say that sometimes I get super joyful. But! When I’m feeling my best, I always get some sort of signs and synchronicities about this relationship I decided to cut out. I always get super specific synchronicities I can’t explain. And I don’t understand why. I know that cutting her out was a right thing to do, I know that there is no way back, and I know that I didn’t forgive her. (Working on that and reading judgment detox at the moment.) but I can’t explain what universe wants from me, when it gives me these specific signs that remind me about this person and our parallel world that we created. I’m sorry for rambling, but I really need your guidance. It confuses me that I’m getting signs only when I feel great.

    Thank you! Lots of love!

    1. Thank you for your honest share, Marina. Showing up and sharing here is a sign that you’re ready to make some big shifts. It sounds like you’re asking how to interpret the signs that you are receiving from the universe. My suggestion is to revisit this blog post: https://gabbybernstein.com/secret-asking-universe-sign-trusting-guidance-receive/ and let your intuition guide you. For example, if feels right to not have this friend in your life, are the signs you are receiving from the universe supporting your decision? Only you can know for sure! I hope this helps! xo

  3. Hi Gabby,
    Recently, I went to your Super Attractor book signing in Boston! You are just as wonderful in person! I’m so grateful for you, your teachings and all of your books which I’ve read and reread. 🙂 I’ve been separated for 3 years and contemplating a divorce, which has been such a difficult time for myself and my family after being married for 27 years. I’ve realized through this process, how my fears often get in the way of love. I do all the right things with exercise, meditation and I’m on an wonderful spiritual journey due to it all. My question, how do I know if this divorce is the right decision? Is fear of loneliness getting in the way? I’ve surrendered, but am still unsure. Thank you. ❤️

  4. How wonderfully serendipitous that this should come through now – the Universe truest does have our backs! Just what I needed as a reminder that the journey is never over.
    Congratulations on your courage to be an example to us all by being prepared to be vulnerable and show us that even as a teacher, the journey never ends. This live example has really helped me. Thank you. Mandy x

  5. I had tears while I was watching and reading this post. Probably many of relief… I have had so much fear overcome me lately and it has made me more angry and frustrated than anything else. How do we figure out what it is specifically that is blocking us? Is that through meditation or just simply through time or both? I’ve had fears show up lately and cannot always pinpoint where they’re coming from. I thank you though for this post as I now have other ways to turn back to love.

    1. Hi Amanda. It sounds like a lot is coming up to be healed. This is a good thing. Please be patient and gentle with your process and take it one day at a time. If the blocks aren’t clear, that’s ok. Practice the three steps to support you in releasing the fear energy. <3

  6. Hi Gabby
    I am trying to stay focussed to follow the path of the universe but I feel like I’m trying to rein in a hurricane! My mind is literally all over the place – in respect of trusting something bigger (and stronger) than me -and I can’t seem to anchor it! I think I have major issues with trust – even with the universe – and my ‘trust’ hormones (for want of a better description!) just don’t seem to work! I’m so afraid of being disappointed by the universe which I suppose I see as a man figure (as we were brought up to see God like this), and although I am reading your books, and love to read your email blogs, it’s very difficult for me to tune in or stay tuned in constantly to a higher power. I know I have a big problem with feeling like ‘I’m losing control’ and it’s obviously fear that is holding me back but this fear, I fear, is more like terror. I will keep on trying and focussing and hope that it will become easier for me – eventually.

    1. Thanks for this brave and heartfelt post, Ann. Continue to witness your fear and fully feel your feelings. And then keep returning to your spiritual practices, knowing that it is a practice. Taking small steps each day will add up to a major impact. Try the steps in this blog for a month and get ready to feel and see some major shifts! <3

  7. I am going through the toughest time in my life. For the past three weeks I have wrote a daily appreciation list and incorporated the ..”what I love about this person”. I am also working on changing the reel. Gabby these tools are helping me heal and become unstuck. Thank you

  8. Gabby, I want to thank you as this blog came to me on my email today as I faced fear, doubt and a feeling of defeat by my own fears and I remember that even in those dark moments we need to embrace ourselves as they are the detour that lead to the bigger light as there is willingness.

    Thank you for showing me that with one simple prayer I can’t fight those ego fear-based thoughts that are nothing but a false illusion.

    Thank you for the synchronicity.

  9. I recently struggle with getting out of alignment most of the time due to stress. Your words help bring me back to alignment by remembering my true power. Thank you for helping me realize that. I am so grateful for speakers like you! You’re doing amazing things in this world! Go Gabby!

  10. Wow. Yesterday God was showing me the spirit of fear beneath a lot of what’s happening in my life right now and that “perfect love casts out all fear.” I was literally praying about releasing the fear and how it’s connected to control this morning–and here came the email with this message. Talk about synchronicity! I know I am on the right path. Thank you! #IChooseLove

  11. Gabby I have been poorly with a bladder infection – I have health anxiety so whenever I am even a little bit unwell I fear the worst. Anyway this time off work guided me back to listen to the universe has your back, especially the chapter on universal assignments. I’ve had several antibiotics but they werent shifting the infection, which lead to more panic. But miraculously the more I showed up for the assignment the deeper my connection with the universe grew. I trusted this was divine order and the universe had something for me to learn. This time out has given me time to deepen my practice, bust through some blocks and also take care of my body. I’ve always had a poor diet and always considered my immune system to be very weak. However these past few weeks I’ve really listen and major shifts are taking place. Today I’m starting to feel better and for the first time ever I’m grateful for this infection and the delay in recovery. I turned everything over to the universe, surrendered and let her work her magic.

    I’m more aligned and in tune with myself and my vision to continue to work with children, teaching meditation to help reduce their anxieties. Using my own healing to help others.

    Thank you so much for this knowledge gabby, I owe everything I’ve over come to you and your message. I feel very lucky To work with little ones everyday and going back into schools tomorrow to shine even more light on their little souls x

    1. This is gorgeous Lou. Grateful to witness your major shifts! Sending you continued healing and lots of love.

  12. So glad I came across you on the internet, I’ve got you book the universe has your back, and now I follow you on YouTube insta and read all your emails. Thank you for the free meditations, I’m yet to start meditating properly but with all the tools guidance and advice you share I’m sure I’ll be practicing it soon enough, I defenately need too. You are such an isperation and come into my life at the right time. I’m so ready for my spiritual path and new way of life. Thank you Gabby ❤️

  13. Hi Gaby, thank you for posting this! Something that really resonated with me as a spiritual teacher myself was that 11 years into your journey as a spiritual teacher, you still discovered some road blocks inside of you that you didn’t know was there. To me, I forget that it’s alright to not be ‘perfectly healed’ inside and that we can always go through another layer of undiscovered blocks and emotions. So thanks a lot for sharing that.

    An exercise that I love to do myself when I feel resistance within myself is to sooth the inner child through meditation. It works wanders. Another thing I like to do is to visualize the outcome I want, and this helps my body adopt better feelings than the ones that are holding me back.

    Once again, thank you for sharing this.
    Kindest regards,

  14. I love that-“step back and ask the universe to lead the way”. There’s apart of my logical mind that wants me to be self sufficient, to be able to do it without calling for help. Fortunately I also can see that universal life force, divine energy flows between heaven and earth through and around us all the time and sourcing this energy more deliberately lifts and enhances, in a loving way, ourselves and those we interact with. Love your teachings Gabby!

  15. Your emails/posts are always on point. I truly needed to hear what you have to say about fear that lingers even when I am already doing the work. Tomorrow is my birthday, and I am so glad I received this post in my email today as a much-needed message. Thank you so much, Gabby, for always leading the way to deeper, more meaningful healing.

    Much love,

  16. These two latest posts under this section of your blog have been a wonderful reminder of how I need to take a step back, let go, and let the Universe lead me, instead of feeding in to my fears. I can’t wait for your new book, I have already read “The Universe Has Your Back” and it came in to my life when I needed it the most. Thank you for all the inspiring content!
