Publisher's Summary

From the moment we are born and through every day of our lives, each of us is traveling on a mysterious, relentless, passionate, and sometimes perplexing journey in search of the experience of love. Love, however, isn't simply an emotion, a behavior, or even the bond you feel with another person - it's a supercharged, light-drenched, limitless vibrational field of infinite divine energy that is our essential nature. The true search for love, then, must inevitably direct us within, where we discover that the love we've been seeking in countless ways has been inside of us all along.

The Choice for Love is the inspiring and revelatory new book from New York Times best-selling author and renowned transformational teacher Barbara De Angelis, PhD. Known for helping millions of people make profound shifts in their relationships with themselves, others, and spirit, Dr. De Angelis has written an eloquent, illuminating, and deeply compassionate guide for transforming your relationship to love and bringing more of it into all aspects of your life. She offers you invaluable wisdom and practical tools for healing, opening, and expanding your emotional and spiritual heart and teaches you how to use love as the highest spiritual practice.

What is the choice for love? It is a revolutionary shift in your relationship with the energy of love itself. It invites you into a new, enlightened experience of love as a vibrational state of being. It isn't the choice for new thoughts about love, new attitudes about love, or a new philosophy about love. It's the choice to enter into the experience of your own unlimited love and open to the unfathomable treasures that your heart holds.

When we think that love originates from the outside, we mistakenly believe that we need to wait until something happens to give us an experience of love. Dr. De Angelis explains that love isn't something we can actually get from anyone else. No one can give you any love you don't already have. Love comes from the inside out. Now more than ever, in these unsettling times on our planet, we're each called to become a living remedy, not to fall in love but to rise in love.

The Choice for Love is a masterful and sacred pilgrimage of words whose enlivened wisdom will move you, awaken you, and liberate you to embrace, embody, and delight in more love than you ever imagined was possible.

Timely wisdom and an angelic, captivating voice

Where does The Choice for Love rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Definitely one of my all-time favorites.

What other book might you compare The Choice for Love to and why?

Soul Shifts - also by this author - because it builds on the principles of that book

What about Barbara De Angelis’s performance did you like?

Her voice is so full of emotion. There is a timeless vulnerability to it, like she's not only speaking the truth, but that she also lives it.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It definitely made me cry, but it empowered me to connect more with my heart and to feel greater joy.

Any additional comments?

I've literally read hundreds of books on self-help and hundreds of books on spirituality - but this is both - and one of the all time greats. Barbara is in the 4th decade of her career and her wisdom and insight just keeps getting riper and juicier. Her wisdom is very practical and down to earth because she teaches through sharing her own life experiences and those of her students. One of the biggest aha moments you'll have is that love is not an emotion and it's not something that you get from someone else - it's an infinite field of energy that is always available to you - and all you have to do is open to it. Get this book! Read it! Do the exercises! Finish it and read it again, because there so much wisdom and practical insight on how to manifest more love in your life, that you'll never be able to absorb in just one reading!

Practical ways to choose and find love at any time

Would you consider the audio edition of The Choice for Love to be better than the print version?

I think they're very complimentary. I like to listen to the audio version on the way to and from work so I can recenter and remind myself how to make the choice for love throughout my day at work and again as I head home to my family and evening.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Choice for Love?

What I love about Barbara’s books are how practical she is. In theory it’s great to say choose love, but when we are angry or sad, or the world around us seems crazy, it’s hard to choose love. With this book you learn that love looks different depending on the situation and ways to always find the love in the situation, even when it looks like there is only darkness.

Which character – as performed by Barbara De Angelis – was your favorite?

Love. :-)

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

It would be a lot to listen to all in one sitting. I like to listen to a chapter at a time and then contemplate it. You will listen to it many times and come back to various chapters depending on where you are in life.

Any additional comments?

Barbara De Angelis and The Choice for Love has helped me see there's no point in holding back love, it won't make the pain of loss any less, it will only add in the pain of regret that you didn't express all that you felt while you could.<br/><br/>If you feel lost, if you are trying to find love but it seems elusive, read this book and keep going, because love is there. Love is always somewhere...2016 started out for me with a personal tragedy that broke my heart, but it ended with marrying my husband and the happiest days of my life by making choices for love.

A beautiful journey to your own heart

The Choice for Love is a magnificent book of love and how to find your own heart. But hearing Barbara De Angelis read this book adds a whole other dimension to this already beautiful work. Listening to The Choice for Love you not only hear the words, you feel them. This is an important book for all seekers and the audio book delivers it straight to your heart.

Creating oceans of love in every chapter..

The Choice for Love is a true masterpiece, exquisitely written and read by the author.
What an amazing treat it was listening to The Choice for Love. Dr. Barbara DeAngelis has successfully transformed every word and chapter into a warm ocean of love in which to swim. I felt immediately raised up in the process of listening and taking in the high vibration that is energetically offered.

The world really needs this book right now more then ever.Thank you Barbara for sharing your heart's wisdom and journey with me and so many others so we too can make The Choice for Love..

Reading this book was an opportunity to remember how special life can be when we challenge ourselves to approach each interaction with love. In this place, we reach higher levels of Grace, Dignity, Humanity, and a deeper​ Wisdom. This is leadership.

Wow, great book!

What did you like most about The Choice for Love?

I am only part of the way through this book but I have learned a lot already. Having listened to many books on love and spirituality, I wondered if there would be anything new, but there is. It is excellent.<br/>The author has a perfect voice for narrating her book, so it is very easy to listen to, which I realised is so important after having to return a book recently due to the harshness of the narrator's voice.
