Nothing new

Was a little bit disappointed with one. Loved Gabby’s content before. But I wasn’t blown away with this one it’s everything that has been said by her or other self help “gurus” .. maybe I just wasn’t in the frame of mind but that’s just my opinion

Perfect timing

This book literally couldn’t have come into my life at a better time! This book is helping me to gather all the chaos in my head and start to reframe things in a more positive and productive way xox

Gabby is also always so beautifully honest about her own stories which makes the read / listen so much more personal

A Spiritual Listen

An interesting listen. I would be happy to follow the guidance - a summary sheet of the main lessons and mantras would help. I'm sure they would be memorised as repeated regularly.

Political?!

After listening for the first five minutes, my heart sank. I was really hoping to be uplifted from this fog we are all living through, Not interested in hearing about your political views of “social and economic injustices”. Tired of feeling guilt tripped for being a white person.
We are all just people and everything isn’t about race, color or creed.
It’s about personal responsibility and being the change we wish to see in the world.

your political views are not needed in your books. I am saddened that you have taken this path.

“White privilege” BS

Wow what a joke of a human being. Talking about BLM and “white privilege” only takes us back into the victim hood mentality and does not offer any true peace within.

Self esteem is not a political platform

I am so sick and tired of every person with a platform telling me what the Vision of my life should be. People of privilege some of us worked in America the land of opportunity and started from no privileged background. We received blessings based on our efforts not our colors. If you are speaking from a position of love first why would we teach one color is more important than any other. If I am my own Guru I would teach we are spirits sojourning together with different challenges all intended to prepare us for eternity.

“White Privilege”-speak in a self help book??

She lost me in the first chapter when she started talking about how she took her privilege for granted. This kind of negativity has no place in a book like this. I feel like I was listening to the author read a story from from the New York Times. I would rather take guru advice from a Gummy Bear.

A Lightworker

I adore Gabby's inner light and her willingness to put herself out there and navigate new areas to discuss and shed light on.

If you're not someone who can handle honest discussions about race and privilege, this might not be for you.

But if your level of awareness is more advanced, you'll absolutely love this! In light of Covid-19 and the current climate of racial injustice, it'll both challenge and invite you to approach life with a new lens.

Ugh

It’s really hard to respect a “spiritual leader” who seems to be just as engrossed in the victim mentality mindset that many of us are trying to transcend above. Seems like just another white savior talking about her white privilege. How about some guidance to love past this?

Not a thrill or new

I thought she would have some thought provoking discussion. But for me she re-hashed other authors thoughts. But maybe because I am not new to what she is expressing.

I liked it until she started getting political

The one thing I thought this book would provide was a reprieve from politics. Geez.
