It doesn’t really do a suffering person much good to hear, “Let it go,” or “Confront the person from a place of center,” when the whole point is that the emotionally stuck person orooff know HOW to let it go or HOW to find their center in the midst of chaos. Positive Energy, her last book, was a lot more focused and helpful.

Orloff mixes in enough talk of brain imaging and double-blind testing to temporarily earn the readers credibility then pulls out corkers such as: View all 6 comments.
In the beginning I thought the “new age” edge in this book quite interesting.
I read on with a healthy sense of scientific skepticism, neither buying it or dismissing it. I thought it interesting that the writer herself claims empathic abilities.
Since I know nothing about being an empath, despite my being sensitive, I didn’t feel that I was in the position to make arguments for or against the claim. My feeling toward the emotiobal was that I found it “interesting” and I thought ah well why not? If s In the beginning I thought the “new age” edge in this book quite interesting. Once I hit the chapter where she talks about how dreams can be predictive, my level of discomfort raised by ten folds.
I am not saying that this is not possible. But it made me feel uncomfortable that we are now in this gray area where intuition and superstition are no longer distinguishable from each other.
Then I read on and felt that the writer talks about many grand notions, all of which are close to her heart but seem just a tad hard to relate to. I believe that there is a being that is larger than life. I am open to the possibility that some things are “magic” and cannot be explained by logic and facts. This book didn’t really tell me anything spiritually enlightening. It is filled with a lot of personal experience and personal views of an empath.
Few actual action items, a lot of talking about some abstract concepts. I found the book to be “interesting” but not informative or helpful. Oct 12, Rebecca Recco rated it it was amazing. This is a great resource for ways to deal with negative emotions, especially when those emotions come from “energy vampires” who are toxic to be around.
Through this book, I realized that I am very sensitive to others’ energies, and that there are exercises that I can do to prevent taking on their energy and becoming negative. This all sounds very new-agey and silly to some, I’m sure, but whatever works! Emotional Freedom is a powerful guide to living in these challenging times.
Combining practical advice, inspiration, and heartening companionship, Dr. Combining psychology and spirituality, personal fulfillment and positive action, the book inspires us to live our callings, bringing a deeper sense of meaning and purpose to our lives. By developing our emotional freedom, we can become more fully ourselves, live with greater joy and serenity, explore new possibilities, and reach out to heal this beautiful planet we call home.
Mar 24, D. After trudging through this whole book, I realized there was nothing new here. Anyone familiar with self-help books will, most likely, come to realize that the book is basically a compilation of those which came before – only with much more verbiage. Take a pass on this one.

I loved how this book puts together psychology with the spiritual I think if only half the people in this world used her techniques for reducing worry, stress, frustration I highly recommend this book.
Aug 13, Nada rated it really liked it. It’s like I found all the answers i need in this book! How you achieve thi Oh my! How you achieve this? Laughter, exercise, meditation and doing anything that makes you loved”! Whether now or in distant eons, you must do it. Hope is contagious; it will lift your mood. It’s healthy to cry. This helps resolve depression. Let your tears flow to purify depression and negativity.
Suffering can quicken your capacity to awaken, and so to heal. Depression is an emotion to be consciously transformed; grief is a reaction to loss that can transform you. The starting place is always you. The more peace you enjoy, the more that energy ripples out to everyone.
That’s the direction to freedom. Aug 21, Paula Cappa rated it it was amazing. This book is a treasure. I’ve read many books on positive thinking, but Judith Orloff, M. This is NOT air-fairy stuff. Orloff is an ‘energy psychiatrist’ and she deeply understands emotions, depression, and anxiety from her medical practice.
Emotional Freedom Description – Judith Orloff MD
Her explanations about fear, stress, and intuition are sound and well presented. I like how she advises that “calm is something you must go after; stress comes after you. Her 3-minute technique to release stress and bring in calm is easy; first time I tried this practice, I felt the shift immediately. The chapter on ’emotional vampires’ was spot on–Oh my, we all have one of these in our lives.
On page she discusses fear, its source, purpose, our reaction and results. Important revelation here is that logic and juditn insights orloft our fears often fail. I can agree with that for sure.
