Lesson 1: Meditation and prayer might be just the cure you were looking for all along .

Oftentimes, we have everything we need to live happy, meaningful lives, yet something is still missing. We are deeply disconnected, feeling anxious and stressed all the time, and living in fear. This state of being is detrimental to us, and there’s only one way to fix it.

We must first accept that there is a higher power who guides us through our life. Also, we must be willing to recognize our personal flaws and the negative impact they have on our lives.

We must learn how to connect with others through compassion, empathy, and love, which will help us develop inner strength and overcome negative emotions such as anger or jealousy. In addition, we must recognize all things come from a source outside ourselves. 

Some might call that force God , while others call it the Universal Truth or the Awareness. Regardless of its name, its presence is certain. To rediscover it and implicitly connect with your inner self, you’ll have to meditate or practice praying in solitude.

Lesson 2: Before you ask the Universe for whatever it is that you want, you should prepare your mind .

When you’re ready to live the life you’ve been dreaming of, the Universe will be ready for you. The only thing you need to do is ask for whatever it is that you want. 

To get your mind in the right shape, you need to start meditating. However, there are only a few correct ways to ask for your God-given gifts. You need to be free of assumptions, fears, prejudice, and negativity in your requests.

Lesson 3: In spirituality, it is important to let go of the reins and allow things to happen as they will .

You can’t let yourself get caught in a cycle of anxiety or frustration over things you can’t change. You have to learn to accept things as they are and stop worrying about what might happen in the future. 

This doesn’t mean you should just sit back and do nothing — it just means that when something doesn’t go your way, don’t stress about it as you normally would.

Stoics were quite wise in this sense. The center of their philosophy was that as long as you can’t control the outcome of a situation, there’s no reason for you to stress about it. In other words, only focus on what’s in your power to change, and leave the rest for the Universe to take care of it.

It’s not uncommon to see people who seem to be so centered, grounded, and overall laid back. It’s like these people have a protective aura that regular people can’t get past.

The Universe Has Your Back Review

In a world that is constantly focused on material pleasures, people are starting to look for something more. They want to be able to appreciate their lives and have a purpose. 

The Universe Has Your Back offers guidance on how to do so by providing the tools needed in order to cultivate spiritual maturity.

I highly recommend this book if you too feel like there must be something more to life than just your day-to-day cycle and want to explore the higher meaning of life itself, as well as what’s your purpose on this planet.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
