Judith Orloff, M.D. is a world-renowned leader and pioneer on the forefront of Energy Medicine, who specializes in Energy Psychiatry, which deals with subtle energies also known in the healing arts as ‘life force’. She is a psychiatrist in private practice and an assistant clinical professor of psychiatry at UCLA. She is the author of the New York Times bestseller Emotional Freedom as well as Dr. Judith Orloff’s Guide to Intuitive Healing and Second Sight. She is an international lecturer and workshop leader on the interrelationships of medicine, intuition, and spirituality. Her work has been featured in O Magazine, Newsweek, the Wall Street Journal, Self, Cosmo, The Washington Times, and the New York Post and she has appeared on The Today Show, The Dr. Oz Show, Good Morning America Health, CBS Early Show, CNN, A&E, PBS, and NPR. Judith is a blogger for the The Huffington Post and Psychology Today. Her national public television special “Emotional Freedom Now!” is based on her book Emotional Freedom. In her book, Positive Energy: 10 Extraordinary Prescriptions for Transforming Fatigue, Stress, & Fear Into Vibrance, Strength, & Love (Three Rivers Press 2005), Judith takes you on an exploration into the world of subtle energy and shows you how to claim your energetic power in all areas of your life from the foods you eat to environments you live in to people you communicate with.
In order to take full ownership of the powerful energy that we have, we must first understand this often elusive life force; with Judith’s firm grasp and clarity on the true nature of subtle energy, she’ll illuminate it for you. You’ll gain awareness of it’s presence within and around you, so you can connect with it and be the master in control of your own.
Judith teaches intuition and the sensing of energy fields. Everyday, we’re in constant flow of energy. We come into contact with both negative and positive energy; understanding how you relate to and process these energies is key to helping you keep the current flow of energies in and around you more positive (much healthier vibes for yourself and those around you).
You will learn about the energizing and healing powers of creativity and inspiration and how to open yourself up to their flow. You’ll learn how films are used in Judith’s Positive Energy Program as an energizer, a catalyst for healing, and conduit through which we experience creative energy. She explains the energetic qualities of films, what really happens to us when we watch them, and why she sometimes prescribes movies as medicine as they can be very therapeutic.
On a similar note, music can also replenish us. Judith states, “Sound is energy. It vibrates through your blood, organs, bones, and also your subtle energies.” While certain music can be energizing to some, it can also be agitating and depleting to others; so find, listen to the sound, and move to the rhythm of the music that best resonates with your larger self and makes you feel more alive.
Judith is “a big prescriber of laughter in Energy Psychiatry”. You’ll not only learn the powerful healing effects laughter has on us, but she’ll help you to re-connect with your inner child and find your funny bone again.
She covers a full-range of energy zappers to be aware of to include: the energy vampires, those people in life who suck all of the positive, life energy right out of you. She’ll show you how to protect yourself from them.
Through-out her book and at the close of each chapter, Judith interviews several entertainers and notable figures such as Rosa Parks, Kenny Loggins, Jamie Lee Curtis, Quincy Jones, Amy Gross, Goldie Hawn, Norman Lear, Shirley MacLaine, Larry King, and Iyanla Vanzant regarding their relationship to energy. Each chapter includes a few easy-to-follow techniques and exercises to help you experience first hand, what she practices herself everyday to transform negative energy into positive energy.
I’ve read all of Judith’s books and find her to be one of the most insightful, interesting, enjoyable, and helpful authors; I highly recommend Positive Energy for everyone who wants to connect with the positive energy in life on a more frequent basis and improve the quality of their life.
