Publisher's Summary

Are you an empath? If you've ever felt overwhelmed by noise and crowds, been put down for being too shy and introverted, or suffered "emotional hangovers" from someone else's bad mood, chances are you're at least partially an empath. With Essential Tools for Empaths, Dr. Judith Orloff presents a wealth of techniques, insights, and guided practices for addressing the challenges sensitive people face - while developing your unique qualities and strengths. In this audio companion to her new book The Empath's Survival Guide, she reveals how you can stop absorbing stress from others, protect yourself from narcissists and other energy vampires, enhance your health and intuition, find work that supports your sensitivities, and much more.

Enlightening for me

After listening to it I have a clearer understanding of empaths. I am 43 and am just realizing I've been one all my life. Looking back I realize I had felt very out of place and my energies were scattered. For many years I had tried to bury the energies of others that really overwhelmed me. This audio has helped me immensely- I am able to recognize now that when I feel others pain or anger I don't have to own it, I can practice the exercises and change the energy. It's very enlightening. I did choose to buy this audio before reading her primary book but I'm going to buy the audio to that now.

Judith has a message for Empaths

I like Judith Orloff but I find her books are repeating the same teachings over and over under different titles.

Good, but very similar to the companion book

It's good and I appreciate the guided meditations throughout the book, but I think it's very similar to the book. A lot of the same information. Don't get me wrong, I appreciate both and they helped to validate many of my own experiences, but I was expecting different content.

A multi-listen book.

This helped me accept that I'm not a freak but really feel what I feel.

Excellent, As Usual

Dr. Orloff is so easy to listen to and she gives such great recommendations, suggestions for improving your life if you are a highly sensitive person, and/or empath.
I love that she reads her own material. Thank you Dr. Orloff for being so committed to helping others with this personality style.

Not my cup of tea

This book is definitely for people who know absolutely nothing about empathic ability...I guess? Although to me, there was not very much in this book that common sense couldn’t tell you. A lot of the content felt like something most people (not even just empaths) know and understand and go through daily.
Also, I felt like this definitely had “special snowflake syndrome”. Empaths are too-sensitive-and-special-for-the-likes-of-you and that concept got annoying really fast.
It might just be because I am of the belief that EVERYONE has intuitive & empathic abilities, and maybe that’s why the exclusivity of this book grated on me. Anyway, I’m more than sure there’s better Empath 101 books than this...

Great book helped me accept my true self

Would you listen to Essential Tools for Empaths again? Why?

It really helps empaths accept themselves and realize they can feel in control, they don’t have to be a victim and they can find balance

What did you like best about this story?

Judith really gives many tools to help you day to day in many different situations. She helps empaths realize it is safe to be open about who you are and you need to find your light but also acknowledge your shadow self. You learn to truly embrace and begin to love yourself just the way you are so you can enjoy your journey in life.

Which character – as performed by Judith Orloff – was your favorite?

N/A

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No and many chapters are helpful at different times. I would even go back to specific chapters when needed. It is a great tool.

Any additional comments?

I have yet to find a book by Judith that I don’t love or learn something. She is a great teacher and really helped me connect with my spiritual self.

Very clear and compassionately informative

Wonderful presentation.
Glad I chose the audible version, voice has such an effect on sensitive people;
I loved listening to this book all the way, no dull moment.
So informative, it made me feel really reassured of my sensitivity clearly,
Having Dr. Orloff narrating the book is a plus, soothing; so, in my opinion makes a whole difference!
How freeing to hear all this from a professional, who is grounded and
that completely understands the issue, without shame or guilt.
Dr. Judith Orloff is very intelligent, compassionate, insightful and professional when touching on the energetic,
holistic fields that are so intimidating and even denied by most MDs. She is a treasure, thank you!

Excellent Empaths

Thank you Judith for explaining so very clearly the pro's and con's of being an empath. I'm not alone! Welcome to all my empath brothers and sisters who are sharing the journey. This audio is an excellent place to start or re-affirm your empathic qualities.
