Gina Lake's new book tackles the biggest issue for many who are drawn to a fuller spiritual life but find it difficult to leave behind the negative conditioning that keeps them from peace and enjoyment. "Trusting Life" is at the heart of the spiritual journey, and unhooking from our distrust and conditioned reliance on egoic thought and finding the basis for trust in life, as it is, with guidance from the heart, or Essence, is what this book is about. Gina uses the rational mind to deconstruct the conditioned belief in the egoic mind and its negative stories about life. She offers pointers toward the life-affirming truth that we can choose to live in the present, without the suffering of what should have been, could have been, or might be, and come alive in the abundant grace of the natural goodness and flow of life. This book puts it all in context, puts the egoic mind in its place, and opens the door to freedom and peace.

There are many spiritual books out there today. We read them, hoping that they change us or that we are capable of changing ourselves because of the wisdom imparted. Sometimes they leave their mark in our souls and sometimes they fade with passing time. What we need is a spiritual drill sergeant, and I mean that in a good and necessary way! That's when I stumbled upon this book by accident, but make no mistake...it was waiting for me!
Gina Lake has a way of imparting spiritual wisdom that can be understood and taught to anybody who is ready to embark on a spiritual journey. The simplicity and clarity with which she writes is the reason why everyone who is looking for guidance can really benefit from her teachings. In her book, "Trusting Life", the reader is carefully guided through a very accurate understanding of the innerworks of the mind/body and the different "contenders" at play. Never once does she leave you feeling like you don't understand something. She holds your hand and doesn't let go 'till the very end .Personally, I think this is what sets her apart from everyone else. She "speaks" to me better than any other spiritual teacher. As you read, you are filled with breakthrough "Aha" moments, and you know your life is already beginning to change. "Trusting Life" is a perfect tool for a freshly renewed spritual journey. Its simple but profound teachings have the power to change the way you think permanently, seamingly without even practicing that hard.

"Trusting Life" is a psychological process that has enough torque to propell you forward into a state of awareness. You really begin to be the "Noticer" of your thoughts and understand that you don' t need to believe them, especially the ones that make you suffer.

Trusting Life by Gina Lake is a spiritual treasure. Unlike any other spiritual book I've ever read and unlike any of Gina's other amazing books, Trusting Life provides the perfect counterpoint to our culture's focus on coercing life into giving us what we want. It is a profoundly hopeful book that teaches how to tap into the ever-present wisdom of your own heart for guidance, the only guidance that will lead you to a truly fulfilling life. If you have ever wondered about the purpose of life, how it works, or your role in it, this is your book. If you have ever felt that you weren't living the life you were meant to live, that somehow you've kept getting in your own way, or felt lost, disconnected or unfulfilled, Gina's profound, yet down to earth wisdom will help you get on track. If you have ever felt that life and the world were unkind and untrustworthy, cast aside other books you are reading and order this book. Through concrete examples and explanations Trusting Life illustrates how life is supporting us and serving us in every moment, from our first breath to our last. If you are ready to stop living in fear and claim the happiness that has always been available to you, don't wait another minute! Order this book!

For me, Gina Lake's book "Trusting Life, Overcoming the Fear and Beliefs That Block Peace and Happiness," speaks with a gentle and friendly, but also knowing voice, and this writing helps me to look deep within myself and observe what is happening there. On one hand, this experience of reading this book seems like listening to a very close friend, while at the same time, I can hear the same voice that comes from the most true, profound and sacred spiritual traditions and teachers.

Gina Lake's books have all been quite wonderful and helpful to me, and if one is familiar with and finds benefits from say, the teachings of Eckhart Tolle, it seems that they might feel at home with her writings as well. However, Gina Lake also takes the reader further in the direction of examining the practical implications of the spiritual message that is found in teachers like Eckhart, and really explores the ramifications of the balance with living and functioning on the level of "form," or what could perhaps be called the everyday ordinary living experience, and the encounter of the all-pervasive spiritual dimension of our true Self, which she calls Essence. In my view, this book's exploration of the practical side of spiritually inspired life never loses touch with the wellspring of being and life, or Essence.

One reason I find this book, "Trusting Life," so helpful is that it carefully and deeply explores the connection between the unfortunate process of creating and living in a fearful egoic inner state, normally called "me," and the fact that this leads directly to having a sense of not trusting life, which means feeling cut off from a joyful sense of life.
