From Publishers Weekly
Orloff, a psychiatrist who has appeared frequently on television and written an eponymous Guide to Intuitive Healing, here provides 10 detailed prescriptions for harnessing one's "positive energy" to replace fatigue with physical and emotional vigor. Her commonsense program includes pursuing an individual spiritual path, developing "true-to-self eroticism," designing an energy-building diet and exercise plan, learning to celebrate laughter and protecting oneself from "energy vampires." Along with practice exercises for following these prescriptions, each section ends with a public figure describing the ways that he or she uses Orloff's methods. In the chapter on spirituality, Amy Gross, editor in chief of O: The Oprah Magazine, discusses how practicing deep breathing and meditation replenishes energy as she centers herself. Wavy Gravy, who warned against eating the brown acid at Woodstock, explores the way laughter has not only helped him cope with pain but also heightened his vitality level. Orloff delivers her revivification techniques in thoughtful, accessible prose that some may find an energy builder in itself.

She has written other books in which she describes a variety of psychic encounters. Anyone interested in this topic would find this book reliable and moving.
Her book brought clarity to so many habits of mine that I realize now are deeply rooted in behavioral patterns from my past and part of the unhealthy survival mechanisms I have built over the years. Dr. Orloff comes from a loving place of wisdom and encourages self-healing first. Her book can be a powerful tool in your endeavors for personal growth not to mention a big dose of garlic for all those energy vampires out there.
You will read and re-read this book. This is not a book that will gather dust. Dr. Orloff is down-to-earth and truly genuine, sharing her journey and offering sound advice. I've recommended this book to my family and friends for future discussions I'm quite looking forward to. Start the healing process and get her book, you won't regret it and it may just save you some therapy bills.
I now can separate myself from the 'angst' around me, feel empathy for my patients 'truth', instead of my ego's insistance on what that truth should be. After just one day of doing the first exercise, I returned home after working my usual 12-1/2 hour night shift feeling more energized than a 6 pack of my favorite diet cola ever did for me. Thank goodness for this incredible book and the sharing of such insight...Thank you Dr. Orloff! (review based on the book).
That said, I have to add that there's something oddly -flat- about the book. I haven't been able to identify what it is, because Dr. Orloff is clearly passionate about her subject and loves teaching it. Speculating, I wonder if it is an attempt to keep the book as practical as possible in order to appeal to people for whom the concept of energy work and intuition is not immediately understandable?
That being said, if you are interested in learning more about energy work, energy psychiatry, and intuition, I definitely recommend the book. Perhaps you will find in it the enthusiasm and passion that I wasn't able to!
