The focus of her writing and teaching is on helping people be in the present moment and live the happy and fulfilled life that is possible and on shedding light on the ego and other programming that interferes with that. Gina's teachings are most similar to Eckhart Tolle's, Byron Katie's, Adyashanti's, and A Course in Miracles.

Essence or Awareness must become the guiding force as the way to attain purpose and joy!

Dealing with the past, Phobias, and RE-Scripting were really helpful.

I love this book! It's so perfect for where I am in life, at this moment; it's as though it was written especially for me!

I have two of Ms. Lake's other books, and she is at the top of my "authors I love" list. She speaks to the reader like a friend, in terms that are understood at the levels of both the mind AND the heart. This is unlike many authors, who use lofty language to describe topics waaay more esoteric than I can grasp, currently. Sometimes it feels like those authors have lost touch with the everyday person, and where most of us are on the spiritual ladder. Gina Lake, however, speaks in a language that resonates throughout my being. She helps me to DEAL with my life, rather than urging me to shelve my problems because they "don't really exist". I GET that my problems, my image of 'me' and 'my life' are constructs of my mind, but Ms. Lake actually give PRACTICAL tips about what to DO with that concept, where many authors just leave you scratching your head in puzzlement.

If spirituality had a door through which we could enter and gain immediate understanding, Gina Lake's books are that door. My thanks to her for helping me through that door!

I highly recommend all of Gina Lake's books. I was severely depressed, anxious, having suicidal thoughts, and frustrated with therapy when I stumbled upon Gina's books. The Universe brought me her books at just the right time and in just the right manner and thankfully, I was open to receiving them. Through her books, I have learned how to be grounded in the moment; how to be aware of my thoughts and the "egoic mind" with its obsessive, negative messages; and how to notice and listen to my intuition, and change my entire outlook on life. I am also starting to realize the "oneness" of all life. Having before never trusted anyone or anything, I am now learning to trust the Universe and the divinely unpredictable nature of every day events which makes life so wonderfully rich. The tremendous fear I used to feel is now subsiding. Gina talks about the importance of meditation as a spiritual practice which has helped me to restart my meditation practice which in turn helps me stay in the present moment. Refreshingly, Gina's books are free of religious dogma and rules and are available to all readers regardless of religious/spiritual backgrounds and belief systems. I hope you enjoy them as much as I have.

Format: Paperback
The author has a talent for distilling volumes of complex spiritual wisdom into highly accessible and readable books. She is able to convey, simply and poignantly, the essence of how to live an awakened life.

Getting Free shows us how to break the bonds of conditioning so that we may live from our highest Self. This book adds to her previous invaluable contributions by including chapters on clearing negativity, learning to ask for help from our spirit guides, and providing practical tools for living from unconditioned, compassionate, heart-centered Presence Awareness rather than from our ego.

Gina's books will no doubt inspire you to remain steadfast on your spiritual journey and to continue to embody and act from Spirit. She is a gifted spiritual counselor and her presence is a healing energy for all those who come to know her and her work. Highly recommended.

I just can't say enough about Getting Free. I have read it twice, and now keep it handy as a reference guide that offers practical advice and help along the path to awakening. Gina's teachings are extremely clear and easy to understand, making application to real life situations an easier choice. Helpful advice on meditation, acceptance, love, psychology, negative thinking, working with angels, and much more.
I have also read another of Gina's books, Anatomy of Desire, and have just as much regard for that book as well.
I have ordered two more of Gina's books. One is Choosing Love, and I look forward to taking advantage of Gina's practical advice on this most difficult of subjects. The second is Living Your Destiny, which sounds fun AND helpful.

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Namaste on May 5, 2011
Format: Paperback
This was the first ever Gina Lake book I read and I still remember how revealing it was. The various ways it provides for seeing past negative conditioning have been invaluable tools that I've used over the years. I found the metaphysical information, particularly about negative entities and spirit guides to be very clarifying. I've since used that knowledge to turn to help from beings seen and unseen to support my spiritual growth. There are a lot of techniques which I've used since in therapy and with energy healers, some of which run parallel to Byron Katie's work.
The book is a great bridge between more metaphysical teachings about topics such as dimensions and non-sentient beings and Advaita truths about transcending seeming duality. These areas can seem contrary, but Gina does a great job of showing how they are interrelated. A great, comprehensive introduction to her work!

Format: Paperback
I really enjoyed this book. Gina Lake presents her spiritual and psychological knowledge in a clear and concise fashion. She breaks down the information into bite size pieces that help you gain an understanding of why we do the things we do. In addition, she offers many suggestions and functional exercises that can guide us along the path to becoming free. I found her gentle and insightful approach to be very helpful to me and my own personal journey. I will definitely re-read this book and refer to it again.
