Journey to the Light - A Spiritual Journey by Gundi Gabrielle is an uplifting book that takes readers along with the author on her spiritual journey. Her long journey is blissful and inspirational, and shaded with side trips, detours and spectacular images. She weaves her spiritual background into her passion for music and shows how, like spirituality, music can transport people to a state of bliss and joy. Music also helps in experiencing the harmony of nature and the author tells readers that music is the best way to experience the Divine. Her love for the music of Mozart, Beethoven and Bach was instrumental in developing her spiritual experiences with music.

I enjoyed the book because of the clarity and depth in the author's vision. I like the way she blended the mysteries and magic of music into spirituality and how it helped her overcome her pain and sorrows in life. The book captures the true essence of the author's spiritual journey and the shades of humor and optimism in the book made it a motivational read. The author's relationship with her divorced parents, their loss, and the moments she spends in solitude and seclusion resonate well with readers. Her musical path and the opening up of her creative channels with the help of music gives the book many layers and enhances its positive vibe. Her writing resonates with her passion for music, the transcendental power of music and faith in God. The book is indeed a blissful journey into light.

In Journey to the Light: A Spiritual Journey, author Gundi Gabrielle refers to herself as stubborn, but I prefer to think of her as a free thinker, one that questions everything and rarely accepts things at face value. She turned her critical eye to religion and spirituality and began questioning what came from man and what comes from God. An interesting decision because most of us do not look that deep into the spiritual attributes of our beliefs. She recognizes that happiness comes from within and discovers the Sacred Moment. A Sacred Moment is recognizing that every breath is sacred. “If we treasure every breath like a precious miracle, our lives will be completely transformed and we will be free.”

Gundi Gabrielle is a talented writer and has created an interesting and positive self-analysis of religion. She also includes her poems at the beginning of each chapter which are very expressive. Gundi Gabrielle like the farmer has learned the “we’ll see” attitude for we “never really know.” “Life is about feeling the magic of each moment.” Journey to the Light is a fascinating look at the spiritual journey of author Gundi Gabrielle as she, like all of us, journeys to the light.
