    Great Timing!

    Emotional Freedom: Liberate Yourself from Negative Emotions and Transform Your Life, by Judith Orloff, comes at a perfect time, as most of us are experiencing at least some negative emotions in this economy.

    This is a big book--over 400 pages--and is a bit intimidating. However, Orloff encourages us to take our time reading,to take "baby steps."

    Orloff defines emotional freedom as: "It means increasing your ability to love by cultivating positive emotions and being able to compassionately witness and transform negative ones, whether yours or anther's."

    Orloff is the pioneer of what she calls Energy Psychiatry--blending traditional medicine, intuition, energy and dreams.

    She talks about our vital life force energy (or Chi, to the Chinese,) that flows through our body and is intuition. This energy is also all around us--so life force energy is within and without, affecting us.

    Part I "Tipping life power of emotional freedom," includes a self assessment test to compare before and after you do the work. She discusses the 4 components of freedom and the roles dreams play in our lives.

    Part II "Your tools for liberation," include a practical guide to dealing with the most difficult emotions.

    There is a quiz to help you determine what your emotional type is--the intellectual, the empath, the rock, the gusher. She discusses the pros and cons of each and how to find balance within each.

    The book includes advice on how to reprogram ourselves to build inner calm by facing anxiety and worry.

    As an eco-friendly Feng Shui designer, I really appreciate how she discusses energy and intuition--because both play a large role in my work. Orloff understands that life force energy (as well as negative energy,) surround us. I would recommend reading her book slowly with a book that influenced my practice: HARMONIOUS ENVIRONMENT: BEAUTIFY, DETOXIFY & ENENERGIZE YOUR LIFE, YOUR HOME & YOUR PLANET, because it will help you raise the energy in your home which will help alleviate stress and other negative emotions.

    I also recommend THE ART OF EXTREME SELF-CARE, because it teaches us to love ourselves--key in Orloff's work, as well.

    Finally!

    Maybe it's because Judith Orloff herself is an "empath" that she can describe this emotional type so well, and because she's a therapist that she has so much compassion for every emotional "type"... but reading this book has helped me finally feel like I am not "too" sensitive! I am an empath too. "A cat with a thousand whiskers"... which really helps with my work and with my art. I love this book. Read it! It might help you begin to see yourself and others in a very new light and help you develop a deeper compassion toward yourself and others too. And that is a good thing!

    Nice starting point for self-improvement.

    This is a good first step towards personal awareness and improvement. It is a comprehensive guide to gaining more insight about yourself and those who surround you. As you read, you will be able to identify some of the "characters" described within your own life and be prepared to implement the provided and suggested action plan within this book. It is organized well and includes short "quizzes" to help you clarify your own roles and others' in relationships. I think you will find it helpful if you are looking for some insight on how to make changes in how you approach things in your life. Happy reading!
