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!

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.

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!

If you want to really know why your mind takes you down the tubes with anxiety ,emotions , preconceived notions, etc etc.. this book will open your eyes and give you an awareness that only comes with a knowing of how the human mind (EGO) operates against you.

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.

This book is filled with words of wisdom. I particularly loved the part about beings of light and guides. Their help is always available to us. The author stresses the importance of putting aside our thoughts and opinions and of loving the present moment. It is where Essence resides. It is where happiness is. This is so true!

The part on regression therapy was of less interest to me, so I went through it very quickly. However, it contains valuable information for those who practice this type of therapy.

Had it been possible, I would have given this book 4.75 stars. I highly recommend it to spiritual seekers.

This is a book written in a beautiful and clear way, offering multiple insights of how we are conditioned toward a lifetime (indeed- lifetimes) of habits and how we, with mindfulness, may break free of these egoic patterns. GETTING FREE is an invitation to all who read it to awaken through awareness, to let go of thought, to seek guidance in all of our experiences, and to discover our true happiness that has been there all along. Throughout the book, Gina Lake provides clear pathways for doing just that. I was so hungry for the message that I read GETTING FREE in record time, only to turn around and begin again in order to absorb it more slowly. I love this book.
