amazing and helpful as always! 🙌

I love how gabby writes in a way that is easy and approachable even those those who are new to spirituality! 💖I have read almost all her books now and i just love how clearly she communicates and articulates her ideas to her reader and especially how she pairs it the with her own personal experiences. She really offers up easy, logical steps to guide anyone towards a happier, more meaningful and connected life. Shes like the gateway drug to delving into spiritual practices in my opinion 😂because she makes everything simple and straightforward with exercises and examples that are easy to apply to your day to day routine. 10/10 👏👏👏👏👏👏

Very Inspiring

I am new to Gabby's work this year and I have voraciously consumed all of her books, this one being my fav so far. I love the empowerment that comes from being your own Guru. She gives such empowering messages and is so honest and vulnerable. I appreciate all of her work. Everyone on a spiritual path or one of self discovery will put this book in their toolbox for sure.

Simple and Soothing

Nothing new or revolutionary, but then again when it comes to spiritual principles, is there ever anything new.

This is fundamentally a practical summary of some of the essential concepts that have been repeated throughout the ages by true masters and opportunistic imposters alike. It is effective because it is simple and personal and comes from the heart "through the lens of love". It is necessary because evidently we have failed to apply to this dimension those spiritual lessons that gurus and teachers have been trying to help us understand.

I am grateful for these elegant reminders.

Enjoyable and insightful

I loved that the messages were simple and even though I've heard many before, I took new things away that I know I will apply. This book helped me make a little more sense about this journey of life. I will definitely listen to it again.

Another amazing book from Gabby

Although there are some concepts from her previous books, they are more profound.

I loved the book. <3

Great for any level of meditation!

I thoroughly enjoy3d 5his audible. Its filled with inspiration and steps to keep a positive flow of energy in your daily life no matter what the circumstances. If we focus within our own hearts we cam acheive anything. Thats what I took away from this book.

It not only shows how to be a better person but also a more loving person. Highly recommended!

Political?!

After listening for the first five minutes, my heart sank. I was really hoping to be uplifted from this fog we are all living through, Not interested in hearing about your political views of “social and economic injustices”. Tired of feeling guilt tripped for being a white person.
We are all just people and everything isn’t about race, color or creed.
It’s about personal responsibility and being the change we wish to see in the world.

“White privilege” BS

Wow what a joke of a human being. Talking about BLM and “white privilege” only takes us back into the victim hood mentality and does not offer any true peace within.

Self esteem is not a political platform

I am so sick and tired of every person with a platform telling me what the Vision of my life should be. People of privilege some of us worked in America the land of opportunity and started from no privileged background. We received blessings based on our efforts not our colors. If you are speaking from a position of love first why would we teach one color is more important than any other. If I am my own Guru I would teach we are spirits sojourning together with different challenges all intended to prepare us for eternity.

“White Privilege”-speak in a self help book??

She lost me in the first chapter when she started talking about how she took her privilege for granted. This kind of negativity has no place in a book like this. I feel like I was listening to the author read a story from from the New York Times. I would rather take guru advice from a Gummy Bear.

A Lightworker

I adore Gabby's inner light and her willingness to put herself out there and navigate new areas to discuss and shed light on.

If you're not someone who can handle honest discussions about race and privilege, this might not be for you.

But if your level of awareness is more advanced, you'll absolutely love this! In light of Covid-19 and the current climate of racial injustice, it'll both challenge and invite you to approach life with a new lens.

Ugh

It’s really hard to respect a “spiritual leader” who seems to be just as engrossed in the victim mentality mindset that many of us are trying to transcend above. Seems like just another white savior talking about her white privilege. How about some guidance to love past this?

Not a thrill or new

I thought she would have some thought provoking discussion. But for me she re-hashed other authors thoughts. But maybe because I am not new to what she is expressing.

I liked it until she started getting political

The one thing I thought this book would provide was a reprieve from politics. Geez.
