READ OF THE MONTH

Hi lovelies,

After the demise of my live-in “forever” relationship, I became lost and was looking for answers. I was gifted a book, written by Gabrielle Bernstein, called The Universe Has Your Back. Desperate for clarity, I cracked it open, and flowed through the easy-to-read brook.

the universe has your back

For those reading this that need a sense of clarity, peace, or understanding, I urge you to pick this up. I do not say this lightly, but this book changed my life. It touches on meditation, control, honouring your feelings, and the plan the universe has for you. Not necessarily always a “spirit junkie” myself, Bernstein spoke to me in a language I could understand, and through her writing, she made me feel cradled by the Universe during my own difficult time.

I have implemented Bernstein’s meditations and thoughts into my everyday life. I have allowed myself to release my control to the Universe, in belief that there is a plan greater than the one that I have for myself. This, in itself, has given me a peace of mind. I have been able to set free my anxiety, and in turn, liberate myself.

I leave with you a few of my favourite quotes by Gabrielle Bernstein:

  • “In every situation, you will have two choices: will you learn through love or will you learn from fear?”
  • “Practice saying this prayer before every encounter that triggers the shadows from your past, ‘I want to see this person for the first time'”
  • “You have the power to create the world you want to see”
  • “The key to serenity is trusting that the universe has your back”

Thanks for reading loves! What are your favourite books lately?

Speak to you soon xx,

Eat, Pray…Passion?

Today, I want to speak to the curious readers.

I have to admit, I’m not a huge reader. I’ll pick up a book then and now, however, no book has ever spoke to me more than Elizabeth Gilbert’s “Eat, Pray, Love”. It is a gorgeous book about travelling, depression, love, lust and finding yourself.

I swear, that book is my bible – I’ve gone through and highlighted each of my favourite lines. I’ll share a few of my favourite quotes from it:

  • “Somewhere within us all, there does exist a supreme self who is eternally at peace”
  • “When the past has passed from you at last, let go. Then climb down and begin the rest of your life. With great joy.”
  • “There’s nothing you can ever do to lose my love. I will protect you until you die, and after your death I will still protect you. I am stronger than Depression and I am braver than Loneliness and nothing will ever exhaust me”
  • “I’m choosing happiness over suffering. I know I am. I’m making space for the unknown future to fill up my life with yet-to-come surprises.”

For those who are still reading, I urge you to watch this video. It is our dear Elizabeth Gilbert speaking about passion and curiosity and pressure.
