This book is good for those still questioning if they're an empath as well as those along all stages of the journey. Wish I had this when I was starting out, yet I found some new things to explore.

A lovely affirmation

In this book the author awakens the mind and the heart. For the "knowing" she relates tales of her own childhood that at least reflect my own and offer both comfort and confirmation. We are not alone in how we feel.

I bought this book a few days ago as a measure of self-help. The tips and tools on how to gain or regain your sense of self, how to deal with emotional vampires, and other stressors are just invaluable. I refer back to it from time to time, and have bought it for a few friends who needed insight and encouragement. I highly recommend it.

It was only on reading this wonderful book

An extremely helpful book for any one who is sensitive to their environment and surroundings. It was only on reading this wonderful book that I realised that I was an empath and was picking up energies from other people and my surroundings. It's a revelation to know that there are ways of protecting ourselves and living in integrity with our own energy fields. Emotional Freedom also guides us on how to be kind and gentle on ourselves and to live joyously in self love and compassion....a wonderful read!

A Lifelong Reference

This book is great because it breaks down the negative emotions that weigh us down into biological, psychological, and spiritual factors. I've only read a small sampling of self help books, but none have tackled problems in such a well rounded method as this one. It's also filled with great tips and mediation techniques, as well as touching anecdotes that let you know the author truly understands what she teaches. I highlighted so many passages that spoke to me. This is one book I will be keeping on hand for future reference.

This is a hard read. You can tell it was written by an academic. But if you can get through it, it is very well written and full of great information. This in not just for the empath, but for anyone who hopes to understand their own personalities and how to overcome emotional challenges

pretty simple.

This is a book that offers each one of us to honor that we all have different gifts. Being intuitive and "going with our gut" is absolutely beneficial and truth telling to those who experience it. Try not to judge this as a comparison or hierarchical. It just is... pretty simple.
