I've been a Gabby Bernstein fan since I read her first book, Add More Ing to Your Life: A Hip Guide to Happiness. I've even traveled to see her speak & had one of her books signed. It's fair to say that her books were instrumental in me surviving the first few pre-&-post divorce years. Her latest book releases today. I was fortunate to receive an advanced digital copy in exchange for an honest review, so here goes…
what I loved: I have Gabby quotes tucked pretty much everywhere. I added to that collection with this book. Quick mantras to repeat either while sitting or while simply taking a few deep breaths…
The miracle isn't how well we avoid fear; the miracle is how quickly we return to love.
I focus my attention on the love that is around me, and I expect miracles.
I am love and miracles are natural. I welcome healing of the highest good.
Thank you, Universe, for transforming limitation and doubt into creative possibilities.
Overall, this is classic Gabby – reminders & exercises to choose love over fear, and to accept the guidance of the Universe. There's a hint of older & wiser woven into her stories. She continues to make the teachings of A Course in Miracles accessible and more modern, which is awesome.
what I left: I've gotten a sense that Gabby has become a tad bit diva-ish as she has become more successful. I'm thrilled for her success, but found the vibe of privilege a bit off-putting at times. Along with a hint of older & wiser, I got a hint of contrived this time around. Perhaps that's b/c I'm much older (albeit not much wiser) than Gabby? Anyway, it's a minor "complaint."
This book was provided to me by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I was not compensated for this post.
