Overview

From the moment we are born and through every day of our lives, each of us is traveling on a mysterious, relentless, passionate, and sometimes perplexing journey in search of the experience of Love. Love, however, isn’t simply an emotion, a behavior, or even the bond you feel with another person—it’s a supercharged, light-drenched, limitless vibrational field of infinite divine energy that is our essential nature. The true search for love, then, must inevitably direct us within, where we discover that the love we’ve been seeking in countless ways has been inside of us all along.

The Choice for Love is the inspiring and revelatory new book from New York Times best-selling author and renowned transformational teacher Barbara De Angelis, Ph.D. Known for helping millions of people make profound shifts in their relationship with themselves, others, and spirit, Dr. De Angelis has written an eloquent, illuminating, and deeply compassionate guide for transforming your relationship to love and bringing more of it into all aspects of your life. She offers you invaluable wisdom and practical tools for healing, opening, and expanding your emotional and spiritual heart, and teaches you how to use love as the highest spiritual practice. 

What is the choice for love? It is a revolutionary shift in your relationship with the energy of love itself. It invites you into a new, enlightened experience of love as a vibrational state of being. It isn’t the choice for new thoughts about love, new attitudes about love, or a new philosophy about love. It’s the choice to enter into the experience of your own unlimited love, and open to the unfathomable treasures that your heart holds.

When we think that love originates from the outside, we mistakenly believe that we need to wait until something happens to give us an experience of love. Dr. De Angelis explains that love isn’t something we can actually “get” from anyone else. No one can give you any love you don’t already have.? Love comes from the inside out. 

Now more than ever, in these unsettling times on our planet, we’re each called to become a living remedy, to not fall in love, but to rise in loveThe Choice for Love is a masterful and sacred pilgrimage of words whose enlivened wisdom will move you, awaken you, and liberate you to embrace, embody, and delight in more love than you ever imagined was possible.

This is more than a book, it is a journey to someplace mysterious and beautiful, unknown yet completely familiar. Through it all, Dr. De Angelis serves as a masterful guide to the depths of the human experience, the heart, and places beyond. I couldn’t put this book down! It helped to explain so much of what I struggle with from pulling away from good relationships to dealing with major life changes and loss. The lessons and wisdom in this book completely shifted my understanding of what love is, how I’ve been dancing with (or avoiding!) love, where love comes from – and so much more -- all in a way that can be taken in not just intellectually but vibrationally. It showed me how to be “in love” all the time—and, perhaps surprisingly, it has nothing to do with romance! There is something about the way Dr. De Angelis writes, a particular flow, that I really enjoy. There are sections that speak to the mind (at one point, literally, about how our brains become wired so certain experiences bring up certain emotions over and over) and there are completely relatable, everyday occurrences used as examples. She uses things that are familiar, to get us ready for the next supersonic ride into what might otherwise be really advanced and hard-to-understand spiritual concepts. Before you know it, you are feeling more deeply, seeing more clearly, and feeling more whole than you ever thought possible. It’s an amazing feeling! And then, back down to earth with practical tools we can use to change our experience of life and love on a daily, moment-by-moment basis. After reading this book, I feel like I can move forward in every area of life with more compassion, more grace and more love for myself and others. This book is for anyone who has ever felt alone in a room full of people. Who has ever watched themselves in shock and horror sabotaging a relationship or a job interview and felt powerless to stop themselves. For anyone who has wondered, “How can I ever love again?” after a heartbreaking loss. In other words, it’s for anyone with a heart. This book is the roadmap back home to the voice of love and truth that resides deep within you. Make the choice for love—and get this book!

I could not put down this newest wisdom and vibrational rich book by Dr. De Angelis. Every page is like walking through the most sacred places within my own heart, and provide such a deep and substantive understanding of love. She describes it as a journey of returning home, and I can feel myself take a deep breath and settle within myself with that description. Dr. De Angelis defines the metaphysical heart connecting the human and divine, our energy center. Dr. De Angelis points out that “your realizations and awakenings will happen not because of my words, but because of your own experiences of integrating the concepts into action” is a balm to any heart, reminding us that navigating the road in and to love is our essential life journey. Her chapter on Navigating Through Impossible Journeys, re-aligning us back to the power of our hearts and our love. You need to buy this incredible book, better yet, buy many books for all your many friends and loved one who will benefit from taking your and their own sacred journey of the heart.

The Choice for Love is much more than a powerful book--it's the manual for life that we've all wished for ("if life could only come with an instruction manual..."). It's not about romantic love...it's so much more. It's about understanding and expanding the love within, so that we can feel fulfilled and share this gift with loved ones. The wisdom is something that I wish every parent would read, digest, and teach to their children from a very young age so that kids can grow up with a healthy way to operate in this world. This down-to-earth transformational book has made a huge impact by helping me to find my purpose in life. The pages invite me to open my heart to LOVE more fully, which has translated into LIVING more fully. It is a treasure that I will cherish forever. Cover to cover, it's a must read!

Every so often a book is released to the world that brings forth a message of hope and delivers clear and insightful wisdom that is so needed for our time. For me, Dr. Barbara DeAngelis’s newest release, The Choice For Love, is one of those books. In today’s climate, so many of us at times face more questions than answers and in our hearts, we ache to find what more we can do to make a difference. Instinctively we look externally for solutions or guidance to fill the deep pockets of emptiness we feel inside. Or we look for more experienced leaders that can guide us to a more peaceful and loving place. What I loved about The Choice For Love is that we are being asked to start with ourselves and to look inward to find our true source of love that is vast and ever present. As I took in Dr. DeAngelis’s words, it seems so profound and yet so obvious, and I relished the clarity and precision that she used to deliver her timeless wisdom and messages to her readers. She presented clear maps, captivating stories and easily understood tools that lovingly guided and supported me every step of the way. I felt so empowered making this journey of self-exploration and the realization that everything I need is easily accessible and already exists inside of me. I felt armed and ready to really make some shifts in my life with the support and guidance she offered. As I dived deeper into the book, I thought of all the young people whose lives will be changed as they take in these words and discover the true nature of love. I wished I would have had a book like this as a young adult. And I thought too of the experienced seeker whose journey will be expanded even farther by the deep insights and contemplation that Dr. DeAngelis brings forth. This book really is for everyone and anyone looking to be loved and to give love in a deeper and more meaningful way. It is THE love manual for today’s world. I’m so glad I made this choice for me and I can’t recommend it enough for anyone looking for more fullness, more heart and more love!

Practical ways to choose and find love at any time! Barbara De Angelis and The Choice for Love has helped me see there's no point in holding back love, it won't make the pain of loss any less, it will only add in the pain of regret that you didn't express all that you felt while you could. What I love about Barbara’s books are how practical she is. In theory it’s great to say choose love, but when we are angry or sad, or the world around us seems crazy, it’s hard to choose love. With this book you learn that love looks different depending on the situation and ways to always find the love in the situation, even when it looks like there is only darkness. If you feel lost, if you are trying to find love but it seems elusive, read this book and keep going, because love is there. Love is always somewhere...2016 started out for me with a personal tragedy that broke my heart, but it ended with marrying my husband and the happiest days of my life by making choices for love.
