From Publishers Weekly
Starred Review. Orloff (Second Sight) offers a superbly written series of psychological strategies for maximizing positive emotions and minimizing toxic ones. A practicing psychiatrist, the author straddles the worlds of mainstream medicine and alternative healing; she regards emotions as a training ground for the soul, and views every victory over fear, anxiety, and resentment as a way to develop your spiritual muscles. As the self is the foundation for emotional freedom, the author discusses how readers can find their emotional type—intellectual, empathic, rock or gusher—and suggests how to find balance. Her tips include avoiding emotional vampires or consulting dreams, which she divides into three types: psychological (where fears and neuroses express themselves), predictive and guidance. The second half of the book tackles the most difficult life challenges: depression, loneliness, anxiety, frustration, rejection, grief, envy and bitterness. Orloff addresses each fully and frankly, using anecdotes from her own life and practice—the death of her mother, her own crippling envy. This insightful and positive book will assist anyone who is suffering in mapping a path out of pain. (Mar.)

You'll probably notice people you know who fit the profiles, but rather than beating yourself up for having had to learn the hard way, just know that armed with these easy-to-read signs, you'll never let it happen to you again!Talking To My Selves: Learning to Love the Voices in Your Head
Well, I hit jackpot in all those three. I'm reading it right now little by little. I'm a big Wayne Dyer fan. I've to say she's an author I get to enjoy too. That's because I'm rather particular with authors. Like any book of this sort there's things you agree and disagree but you can always read past them. It's also interesting to see her use a therapist's point of view integrated with spiritual knowledge from easter philosophies. There's a lot of good advice.
I'd recommend it to anyone who wants to take their self-development to the next level.
I have been interested in meditation for so long now, from 13 to now - i'm 25. But I was only engaging in it sporadically. With the guidance of this book, I have now been meditating morning (10 mins) and night (15 mins) - observing my breath, giving gratitude for everything I have and reconnecting with love and the divine. I feel the divine again, and I feel freer than I have for a long time.
I went from being an anxiety-ridden negative-talker (which i have been stuck in for the past few years) to my optimistic, spiritual self. I am my essence again. I'd started to believe that I was doomed to being a walking disaster because of my creative nature. Now, with the guidance of Emotional Freedom, I can see that I can have the best of both worlds.
I have grown so much in the past week since implementing the guidance in this book - as a teacher, human, woman, artist, and living being. I feel my compassion reach others and it is such a beautiful thing to witness - finally, I'm living my life the way I want to.
I'm looking forward to reading and applying the rest of the wisdom in this book!
God Bless you always Dr. Judith Orloff .... this book is beautiful inspiration.
