Quotes from Happy Days by Gabrielle Bernstein
Living a spiritual life isn’t about moving past the pain and suffering, but instead embracing it. When we honor our suffering we become safe enough to face the dark corners and bring them to the light.
The journey toward true inner peace begins with the willingness to hold a vision for a new way of living.
A true state of peace comes when we are willing to give over our plans and trust in a Higher Power.
Thank you, Universe, for guiding me on this path to becoming new. I honor this vision of how I want to feel. I am willing to receive guidance now.
For years, I pretended that everything was okay. It was only when I became brave enough to wonder why I was running that the next level of healing could set in.
Surrender your old story and become willing to embrace a new one.
Surrender requires acceptance of the past, presence in the moment, and faith in the future. When we respect this moment, we become free from the judgment we place upon ourselves and our experiences.
Your willingness begins the process of undoing the patterns you’ve set in. Become honest with yourself, and you become free.
Freedom from fear offers you the freedom to be the greatest version of yourself.
Each time you turn to prayer, breath, or any loving practice, the love of the Universe can take over and put you right back on the path toward peace.
I’m willing to witness my fear and surrender to love.
Even when I thought the truth would destroy me, it ultimately became what set me free.
The love within us and around us is an ever-present force guiding our journey. When we surrender to that love, we open up our consciousness to receive miraculous guidance and wisdom.
With love and compassion, I witness my physical suffering. Thank you, Spirit, for helping me resolve all emotional distress so my body can be restored back to peace.
Compassion is the antidote to shame. When we align our energy with the love of the Universe through prayer, meditation, affirmations, and self-compassion, we open up our consciousness to see ourselves in the light of who we truly are.
Be open to miracles, and trust that your body is revealing to you what you need to heal.
When you become willing and safe enough to allow your subconscious emotions to come to the surface for healing, then your life will change forever.
Your willingness to open up to the concept of shame means that you’re on the precipice of a radical transformation. Your willingness to witness and transform this painful emotion moves you toward freedom and brings real relief.
Giving voice to your shame is the first step to releasing its grip.
The first step to shifting shame is to give voice to it, to speak on behalf of it, to honor and hold people in their experience of mental illness. If we don’t speak on behalf of it, then we will stay silent. We will stay stuck. We will stay frozen in time.
Hiding your truth is like living in your own self-inflicted prison. Speaking truth sets you free.
You must admit your truth to yourself before you can speak about it. Give yourself full permission to write freely about what you feel, what you need, and what you’ve been through. Don’t be afraid to use words like addiction, abuse, mental illness. Take away the stigma for yourself.
When we face our discomfort with faith instead of fear, we can grow in profound ways. It’s faith that got me out of the darkness, and it’s faith that keeps me in the light.
Through prayer, we temporarily suspend our fears and allow our thoughts to be guided back to love.
Love is what we want most, but often we resist it. We resist it because it can feel far too vulnerable to trust that someone truly cares about us. But it’s imperative to our healing journey that we allow ourselves to be seen—first by seeing ourselves and loving ourselves.
When we show our truth, respect our shame, and honor our wounds, we become liberated.
Give voice to the grief so you can heal it and find inner peace.
The moment we reveal our true feelings to another human, we offer up a gift. It’s a gift to allow yourself to be seen.
When someone is let in on your truth, you even give them permission to identify their own.
The people who land in our lives to support our growth are human angels. The therapists, yoga teachers, coaches, authors, and even strangers who smile at us on the street are divinely planted on our path. They come to us to help us remember we’re not alone in our suffering and that someone cares.
