Through 5 practical steps, Dr. Judith Orloff's guide will show you how to recapture, nurture, and affirm your intuitive ability, so that you can utilize it to help heal yourself.
In her groundbreaking book, Dr. Orloff leads readers to the heart of a radical revolution in health care: the union of medicine and intuition, of body, mind, and soul. Intuition plays an indispensable role in self-diagnosis, pain control, immune response, and recovery from acute and chronic illness; it can lead you to breakthroughs in anxiety, panic, depression, and other emotional blockages, even when traditional psychotherapy has failed. Intuition also offers insights into the use of medications and the selection of the right healer for your needs. Further, it is integral for sexual healing, since sexuality is a potent connector and energy source for clarifying spirituality and improving vitality.
With Dr. Orloff's five practical steps, you'll learn to clarify your beliefs, listen to your body's messages, access inner guidance, sense subtle energy, and interpret your dreams. Practicing the steps, you'll recognize early warning signals and act on them to help prevent illness. You'll have skills to uncover important information from meditation and remote viewing (a way of intuitively tuning in) to make sense of confusing signals. The insights you'll gain from these tools will lend reason, compassion, and meaning to events such as illness, loss, or despair. Following Dr. Orloff's simple, clear instructions, illustrated with examples from her own experience and psychiatric practice, you'll recapture a sense of vision that will bring vibrance to all that you do.
"Our intuition can open us up to our spirituality and show us how to be more healthy and whole," writes Dr. Orloff. "If you're in good health, you'll want to know about intuition because it can help you stay well and recognize messages that prevent illness. If you or your loved ones need healing, you'll also want intuition to show the way." Written with abundant warmth, humor, and compassion, this guide is your companion to a healthier, more fulfilling life.
While holistic medicine has recently gained wider acceptance and inspired a slew of books, rarely has it been examined so thoughtfully and engagingly. Orloff, a psychiatrist, "practicing intuitive" and author of the memoir Second Sight, approaches her medical practice with unusual insight into human nature. Defining healing much more broadly than the eradication of illness or temporary avoidance of death, Orloff optimistically sees the future of medicine as "a holistic art and science" in which "intuition, spirit and technology will be seamlessly integrated." Revealing more of her personal experiences than many professional authors, she offers a clear, detailed manual for tapping one's intuition, which she variously characterizes as "a potent form of inner wisdom," "a still, small voice inside" and "a truth-teller committed to our well-being." To assist readers in developing and maintaining their physical, emotional and sexual health, Orloff presents five steps: "Notice your beliefs, be in your body, sense your body's subtle energy, ask for guidance and listen to your dreams." Although she repeats this five-step process in every chapter, she manages to maintain a fresh, vital discussion throughout. With her frank treatment of such topics as death and sexuality, Orloff will no doubt win over many new fans.
