Are you sabotaging the love that is possible in your relationships? Have you ever wished you could unlock the love that is your true nature and express it fully? Choosing Love offers a spiritual approach to transforming relationships by showing you how to let go of your pre conceived ideas and judgments. By moving beyond your ego and conditioning, you can create a richer, more loving life for yourself and those you care about. You have the power to determine how much love you experience in any given moment.
Choosing Love provides profound insights and practical advice about how the ego interferes with love and happiness; moving beyond romantic illusions; recognizing, finding, and sustaining a meaningful relationship; overcoming anger, judgments, criticism, and resentment; resolving issues like infidelity, money, commitment, sexual differences; and seeing the Divine in another.

I deeply hope persons with a Christian worldview won't bypass this book simply because the author believes in reincarnation. I don't particularly believe in reincarnation but I don't think one needs to do so in order to sense that we are all connected as part of one great wholeness. (I actually think our connectedness means we all have some access to each other's thoughts and memories, etc. which might account for the impression of past lives, but I don't think it's important to know this at this time, I believe we'll all know 'ultimate reality' eventually, are Christians not promised the 'tent of God will be with mankind?')
In the meantime, spiritual teachers such as Gina Lake help point us to the most loving parts of ourselves, she calls it 'essence' and every time she says 'essence' my spirit hears 'that part of you that knows God.' What someone else's inner Self hears in the place of that word I can't predict, but I think you will find it meaningful to find out. What I look for in spiritual teachers is not 'all the answers,' which they can't have anyway, but for a saner approach to all aspects of my life, inner and outer. Those who appreciate writers like Tolle, Ruiz, and especially Byron Katie, will appreciate Gina Lake. I am blessed by this book, and have found myself listening to parts of this recording almost every day.
The narration also is excellent, by the way.
This is a very gentle and practical book that helps reconnect with the beauty around us. Its a beautiful way to remember what is important. The speaker is kind and believable.
I am a dancer, health professional, meditator and avid reader. I listen to audio books while driving, working out and doing chores. I listen to non-fiction more than fiction, but enjoy both. I like books I can learn from or be inspired by. I post my favorites on Pintrest.
This is a favorite book that I have listened to a number of times. If you want a loving relationship, this book helps you recognize your own ego and your conditioning which get in the way. I will notice now when it is my ego. I will notice, "oh, that is just conditioning" and be able to let it go. I will be reminded that the ego is never satisfied and does not know how to love. Sometimes we tell stories to support our ego in being "right", this book reminds us that we can choose to be right, or be in love.
This book is music to my ears. " the truth shall set you free"...learning to differentiate between ego and essence makes life and all relationships so much easier.
I have read most of Gina Lake's books, but this is the only one I have on audio. I hope all of her books go on Audible. I prefer listening to reading, it is like bathing in words I need to hear. Her words bring me back to my own essence.
Seems as though this book is based on The Course of Miracle's principles of seeing with eyes of love not fear. Of which brings out more love in all you encounter. Excellent book.
I have been diligently searching for explanations of and guidance to achieve HIGHER LEVELS of LOVE CONSCIOUSNESS.
Gina Lake's books ARE the access route to my TRANSFORMATIONS & yours, Many of her books are offered FREE via Amazon.com Kindle e-book format with option of Audible narrations available for separate or combined synced reading/listening pleasure.
GO IMMEDIATELY to start realizing YOUR VERY HIGHEST GOOD ! ! !
Holy Crap! Talk about spot on. Listening to Gina talk about how the Ego dominates us, our programming, judgments, anger..., I quickly came to realize this was what ended my first marriage and nearly my second. I instantly recognized that nearly all my behavior and that of my spouse's, all our fighting and communication issues, were coming from our ego's wanting to be satisfied. After hearing this and having it hit so close to home, I realize now what a fool I have been. Essence is the path. Better than years of couples counseling!!!!
"Great Book - Badly Read"
This is a great book but the narrature speeks far too fast and with an almost robotic voice, that has no emotion. I found I could not listen to it. May buy the physical book.
"This book is a beautiful blessing"
This book gave me so much. I do believe books/ wisdom come into your life to help in some way. I randomly came upon this audio books... And it's opened me up in so many ways. Well executed, huge learnings and written in a loving style. I am now going to go buy the physical book to have if I feel I'm slipping into the suffering of the ego ways. Thank you Gina. You wisdom has given me so much
