Gabrielle Bernstein teaches listeners how to transform their fear into faith in order to live a divinely guided life. Each story and lesson in the book guides listeners to release the blocks to what they most long for: happiness, security, and clear direction. The lessons help listeners relinquish the need to control so they can relax into a sense of certainty and freedom. Listeners will learn to stop chasing life and truly live. Making the shift from fear to faith will give listeners a sense of power in a world that all too often makes them feel utterly powerless. When the tragedies of the world seem overwhelming, this book will help guide them back to their true power.


I first listened to this audiobook two years ago, almost to the day. Having just finished Gabby’s Judgement Detox: Release the Beliefs That Hold You Back from Living a Better Life, I thought it time to re-read this earlier work and see if my view had changed.

Having read numerous books on personal development, spirituality, magic, ekstasis, et al, in the interim I found this book more accessible and following similar lines with sound meditative practices built in to help you open up to the soul of the universe (i.e. your own soul, as you’ll discover from the many other metaphysical and development books). This helps you get into your flow, or out of your own way, to live a life of joy and abundance. Gabby refers regularly to this soul of the universe as Consciousness, which reminded me of the same term which is used in the book Real Magic: Ancient Wisdom, Modern Science, and a Guide to the Secret Power of the Universe.

It’s interesting to see how the same underlying concepts underpin the seminal works in the fields of self, personal development, high performance, etc. I would recommend reading this and as many other related books as you can find to develop your own truth of the methods you should follow, ie your own path.

We live in one of three states as Brendon Burchard says - caged, comfortable or charged - often one of the first two. But we aspire to a better life, a more charged life, one where we don’t feel trapped or stuck in a rut (yet comfortable), one where we don’t compromise and live a charged life. My purpose is to help you find your charge. I post updates about my own journey here and if you have any questions or would like any support, feel free to contact me or connect with me on any of the social networks.
