In her latest book, The Universe Has Your Back, New York Times best-selling author Gabrielle Bernstein teaches listeners how to transform their fear into faith in order to live a divinely guided life. Each story and lesson in the book guides listeners to release the blocks to what they most long for: happiness, security, and clear direction. The lessons help listeners relinquish the need to control so they can relax into a sense of certainty and freedom.

This is a perfect example of spiritual materialism at its most shallow. What frustrates me about this type of work is that there is limited understanding of "negative" and "positive" which has a lot of ego agenda in it. With law of attraction type work there is always this assumption that if shitty things happen then you can make the bad feelings go away by using your mind to see it differently and attract only "awesome" positive things into your life. That bypasses deep inner capacity to be with a whole spectrum of life experience. If anyone is truly searching for spiritual transformation I would recommend the work of AH Almass and the Diamond Approach which is beautiful work along the lines of inner capacity to be with what is rather than trying to manipulate. Best of luck on your Journey.

The Newest Oprah Book Club 2016 Selection. The highly anticipated new memoir by bestselling author Glennon Doyle Melton tells the story of her journey of self-discovery after the implosion of her marriage. Just when Glennon Doyle Melton was beginning to feel she had it all figured out—three happy children, a doting spouse, and a writing career so successful that her first book catapulted to the top of the New York Times bestseller list—her husband revealed his infidelity and she was forced to realize that nothing was as it seemed.
