by Judith Orloff, MD

Book Review
by Ann Baldwin

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, Positive Energy, Second Sight, and The Power of Surrender. 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.

In her new book, The Empath’s Survival Guide: Life Strategies for Sensitive People (Sounds True 2017), you’ll gain insight into the many different types of empaths, learn how to protect yourself from the people and situations that drain you, and become more aware of the true gifts you have to offer this world. 

There are three general types of empaths such as physical, emotional, and intuitive; there are also seven kinds of intuitive empaths to include telepathic, precognitive, dream, mediumship, plant, earth, and animal. If you talk to your plants and you have a green thumb, it’s very likely that you’re a plant empath and you have the ability to hear your plants communicate their needs to you. 

Similarly, if you’re an animal empath, you have the special ability to tune in to animals and communicate with them; for some with a specific gift, they might even be a ‘horse whisperer’ or ‘dog whisperer’. Judith has been a dream empath since childhood and shares her personal experiences as well as professional to help you gain a better understanding of this valuable gift.

Being a sensitive person comes with its challenges and she will teach you how to protect yourself from the numerous energy vampires as she calls them such as the narcissist, drama king or queen, control freak, or nonstop talker. Each chapter includes protection strategies such as visualization and meditation techniques as well as boundary setting and even things you can do for your home or office such as smudging, salt lamps, or aroma therapy.

Once you understand your sensitivities and learn how to protect them, you can begin to enjoy your unique gifts and share them with the world to help make it a better place for all of us. As Judith says empaths have the ability to be the positive change makers, because mindful, conscious people are the most effective agents of change. She states that by being vulnerable and strong, empaths represent a new model of leadership and have a huge impact on humanity by promoting mutual understanding, the path to peace in our world. I highly recommend The Empath’s Survival Guide: Life Strategies for Sensitive People.
