"Orloff delivers her revivification techniques in thoughtful, accessible prose that some may find an energy builder in itself." (Publishers Weekly)
I have found MY self-help book. I have already listened to the recording once and have started it again on my iPod. I have always had a certain belief in energy though I haven't always known how to deal with it. Dr. Orloff's book provides a great structure to follow in order to become intune with positive energy and guard against the negative. I love that her methods, and her "make changes now" are written for people that live in the real world. She doesn't require you to throw out your TV or to never touch sugar again. Instead she requests you to become more aware of each moment and what makes you happy. I am so grateful I found this book!
Judith Orloff brings credibility to energy medicine that few other experts on the subject can. Weaving in her experiences as a medical doctor, she makes clear the necessity and value of applying both allopathic medicine and energy medicine to heal the whole person. She is clear and elegant in this book, organizing her points into 10 prescriptions. She gives a lot of information in few words. I listened to the audio version, then bought the book in paperback so that I may reference it and make these prescriptions a part of my daily life.
I wanted to like this book. I really did. But from the get-go it comes off as a sugary chunk of fluff that fails to add any new ideas to the flooded field of self-development and new thought. Worse, she is heavily focused on fighting back against "negative energy" and "psychic vampires". That just doesn't do a thing for me. A disappointment.
