When something goes wrong or doesn’t work out, or when one area of your life just doesn’t flow, you probably have thoughts like, “Why do things have to be so hard?” or “Why can’t this just work out?” or “Why do I always have to struggle?”

There’s really only one reason: Because you think it has to be this way. The stories you play in your mind and project onto the world prevent you from living life with ease.

The solution is to strengthen your faith and weaken your fear. In fact, this is the core theme of my book The Universe Has Your Back.

How to strengthen your faith and weaken your fear

Watch the video below or keep reading for my guidance:

The first step in co-creating with the Universe

The first step in co-creating with the Universe and manifesting what you want is to become conscious of how fear blocks you from what you want.

Become aware of how fear keeps you from experiencing life the way you want and prevents you from showing up for both challenges and opportunities.

Putting our faith in love instead of fear begins transforming our experiences.

How does fear have you in a headlock?

Say out loud how fear has you in a headlock:

  • “Fear has me in a headlock when I think about romantic relationships.”
  • “Fear has me in a headlock when I think about my money situation.”
  • “Fear has me in a headlock when I think about my children.”

Get honest with yourself. How does fear have you in a headlock? This is the #1 reason you are stuck. This is the #1 problem that you have. The way to fix it is to get real about it, get honest about it and choose to change your conversation around it.

Strengthen your faith by surrendering and choosing new thoughts

the more energy and intention i bring to my faith the more fearless and free i am gabby bernstein card deckOnce you’re clear about how fear has your in a headlock, the next step is to surrender to the Universe. Allow your faith to transform your fear.

You can make that commitment in this moment. Just say a simple prayer: “I turn my fear into faith. I choose to see this differently.” The practice of choosing again is sometimes the simplest way out of that negative story. Choosing again helps you to strengthen your faith and weaken your fear.

Make this a daily practice. You can follow my five steps to spiritual surrender. Or you can reach for higher thoughts every time you get stuck in a fear story. This is a practice that raises your energetic vibration. It comes from Abraham-Hicks. You can find some similar guidance here.

How to reach for higher thoughts and strengthen your faith

Here’s an example of how to reach for higher thoughts to strengthen your faith and weaken your fear. If you’re thinking, “I can’t earn from my work,” start leaning into a thought such as, “I’ve got some creative possibilities for earning,” or “I can use the internet to create new connections,” or “My friend has a lead that I never reached out to,” or “I love the work I do and I know it needs to get into the world, and I’m going put it out there and trust that the Universe is going to support me abundantly.”

Reach and climb. Go from one positive thought to the next. You can think your way out of fear and negativity.

What happens when you strengthen your faith

As you start to strengthen your faith in your daily life, that’s when your beautiful miracle moments begin to occur. You start to experience people supporting you. You feel the momentum of positive energy behind you. Fear weakens. You no longer believe in the negative story. Change the story and you will change your life.
