Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Writing this book is a culmination of having people ask me for advice based on my point of view, throughout my life.This point of view came with me but has been refined through thought—reading every book about God and spirituality and philosophy that I could lay my hands on and my driven, deep need to search for Truth—which finally led me to the foundation from which this book is written.
It was also the urging of friends that prompted me to solidify what I talked about and to begin to offer a class called The Shift™, and it was friends who then said, "Please write this down in a book."

From the Inside Flap

Perception produces reality - what we perceive to be reality magnifies.

This book is about perception and how to shift that perception to Living in Grace. This Shift of Perception will demonstrate the Truth that we are living in Grace now.

There has never been a single moment that we have not or will not be living in Grace. But in this place I will call the "Earth state of mind" there appear to be paths that we must walk to remember that we live in the state of Grace. On these paths we search for meaning, power and reasons for our existence.

Most people on Earth walk the "material path." On this path the Earth, the universe, and everything we are and do is material. In the material world, physical power reigns. Some of us have "upgraded" to the "mental path" of believing it is a mental world, and everything is within and of our own thinking. We use mind-power to accomplish our goals and live a better life. In this point of view the mind-body connection comes into play. We begin to say, "I can do it! All I have to do is visualize enough, get my mind and thinking straight." Mind-power employs methods such as visualization and hypnotism to accomplish its goals. This mental path will sometimes diverge into another path, the path of mysticism.

The world today is fascinated by this mental or mystical power and is calling it the Spiritual revolution. Talk of God is accepted, and is now found in all walks of life. It is an improved point of view over the physical standpoint, but it is not the path where this book will take you.

There is one more path—and it is the path of One Mind, that path of non-power, the true Spiritual path. This is The Shift to being completely conscious that all that we are, know, and see is in truth Spiritual. This is Living in Grace. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
Living In Grace: The Shift To Spiritual Perception by Beca Lewis is an impressively written and nicely organized self-help guide to achieving inner peace and wholeness through taking control of one's perceptions. Living In Grace features the "7 Keys to Grace" and the "8 Gracious Steps" for staying on the "Spiritual Path". Readers are informed on a range of abilities from experience love, knowing whom to trust, being happy, and knowing what to do, to feeling safe, avoiding unnecessary worry, and being comforted in adversity. Emphasizing the importance of putting God first and repenting of sins, as well as being aware of the necessity for balance in all relationships, Living In Grace is a profound, moving, constructive, "reader friendly" instructional guide to personal and spiritual self-improvement.

Format: Paperback
As a class "A" cynic, I normally pride myself on my ability to snicker at the pathetic idiots perusing the self-help and inspirational sections of book stores. "Get a life!" I'd mutter safely under my breath. "Why are you reading books in which someone is telling you what decisions to make? Don't you have enough confidence in yourself to make your own decisions?"
Here is a book that gives me the courage to say "Get a life!" at the top of my lungs. It doesn't tell me what decisions to make or how to run my life. It simply inspires me with the knowledge that I am a distinct, unique individual and that all I need to do is follow my own personal destiny. Everyone is different and everyone is the same: we are all battling negative misconceptions about who we are and how we should behave and all we need to realise is that we can trust our own inner selves to lead the lives we were born to lead. Beca Lewis' Living In Grace gets this point home without preaching, without condemnation, but with empathy and gentle suggestion. The book is filled with practical examples of how events in her own life have led to the inevitable conclusion that Life Is Good.
I am currently experiencing a tremendous transition in my own life, having made some tough decisions that will totally change my life-style. Living In Grace has been an enormous help in giving me the courage to make those decisions.

Format: Paperback
If you have ever asked: Why is life so unfair, so hard for me? Why do other people have all the luck? Why doesn't anybody love me? Why don't I know what to do? Then give yourself the gift of LIVING IN GRACE. It will change your mind, shift your perception & give you ideas that will change the rest of your life. No, it won't happen over night, like being touched by the Good Fairy's wand, because you do have to do the "work."
While a focus on Christianity does appear halfway through the book, it is not the Christianity of our childhood, & Beca Lewis' exercises & ideas actually transcend that exclusivity.
Beca Lewis has something to tell us, & it is memorable, sometimes scary, often useful - a look into how to transform the quality of our lives, to live the life we've always wanted to, in contentment, authenticity, & being present.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Citizen on July 6, 2006
Format: Paperback
I could say the book is terrific and it is. But better than terrific, the book is important. It is important in that everyone should read it. Physical Scientists...some of the best, say what we see, hear and touch are not really what we think they are. Ms. Lewis uses hundreds of quotes from nearly everyone most people respect throughout her book as her premise. Then she connects the dots between the quotes effectively, and for me, convincingly.

Here is one such quote in the book. Admittedly most are much shorter:

"Gradually philosophers and scientists arrived at the startling conclusion that since every object is simply the sum of its qualities, and since qualities exist only in the mind, the whole objective universe of matter and energy, atoms and stars does not exist except as a contruction of the consciousness, and edifice of conventional symbols shaped by the senses of man."

Lincoln Barnett, The Universe and Dr. Einstein

The message of the book presented with conviction is that thoughts are things and we need to watch what we think for the good of ourselves and mankind.

Ms. Lewis gets down to what is probably real, what is core, and that therefore makes an important book...better than merely a terrific book.

Can we extablish a category of 6 stars?

Format: Paperback
I have always had an interest and curiousity about the spiritual side of life and finding the answer(s) to why we are all here. I have read many books in the "new-age" genre. Beca's book is a wonderful and uplifting guide on the subject of life and the truth of who we really are. For once, someone approaches life in a completely positive, loving and reassuring way. We are not told that the world is an awful and evil place, but quite the opposite, if we just shift the way we look at things. Everything we have ever needed is and always has been available to and provided for us. We have just been looking at things the wrong way. Beca clearly explains how to get back on track and gives the reader practical ways to return to our true Spiritual Path and how to easily stay there. I would recommend this book to anyone who is not afraid to change their life in a positive way once and for all.
