The hero’s journey—this human life—is a search for the greatest treasure of all: the gifts of your true nature. These gifts are your birthright, but they have been hidden from you, kept from you by the dragon: the ego. These gifts are the wisdom, love, peace, courage, strength, and joy that reside at your core. A Heroic Life shows you how to overcome the ego’s false beliefs and face the ego’s fears. It provides you with both a perspective and a map to help you successfully and happily navigate life’s challenges and live heroically. You will learn how to skillfully manage changes, how to overcome difficulties, how to master your negative emotions, how to cultivate inner strength, how to be happy, and how to be true to yourself. This book is another in a series of books dictated to Gina Lake by Jesus.
Note from the author: I receive the books from Jesus in the same way that Helen Schucman received A Course in Miracles¸ which is also said to be dictated by Jesus, and which many others have received their writings, including St. Teresa of Avila, St. Hildegard of Bingen, Richard Bach, and Neale Donald Walsch. This method of receiving information is also called conscious channeling, but it is not mediumship in which the channel is unconscious and her body is used by an entity. Conscious channeling, or taking dictation, is a process of hearing words mentally and writing them down as they are heard, without any thought on my part. I can receive this communication anywhere. I don’t need to be in a meditative or trance state. All that is necessary is that I don’t think! When I’m receiving this dictation, it is as if Jesus is sitting in a chair next to me dictating the words, except that those words are heard mentally. I can ask questions during this dictation and receive answers, but the process works best when my own mind is completely set aside. Then the flow happens smoothly and rapidly and without interruption until a particular stopping place is reached.
