Descripción de editorial
“I highly recommend this book for all empaths and their loved ones.” —Jack Canfield, co-author of the #1 New York Times bestselling Chicken Soup for the Soul series
The New York Times bestselling author of Dying to Be Me returns with an inspirational guide for sensitive people looking to fully harness their gifts of intuition and empathy in today’s harsh world.
International speaker, cancer survivor, and author of Dying to Be Me Anita Moorjani astounded fans across the globe with her New York Times bestselling book about overcoming cancer and her life-changing near-death experience. Now she returns with Sensitive Is the New Strong, a powerful, heartfelt book on harnessing and fostering empathic gifts in today’s difficult, fear-based world.
Empaths not only sense other people’s emotions, but also absorb them—sometimes to their own disadvantage, often leading to overwhelming sensory overload and feelings of confusion or low self-esteem. Their willingness to help and please others might make them prey to opportunists or cause them to give away more energy than they can afford. But Anita Moorjani argues that it’s possible to turn this onslaught of emotional burden into a powerful tool. In a time when traits like sensitivity, kindness, and compassion are sorely undervalued, Moorjani helps empaths—whether emerging or acknowledged—navigate obstacles they may face and identify what makes them unique. Finally, she teaches them how to claim their true powers as empaths, to be their most authentic selves, shifting their own trajectory and leading to shift the trajectory of the planet in a more conscientious direction.
Filled with eye-opening personal anecdotes, insights from other empaths, meditations, and self-affirming mantras, Sensitive Is the New Strong is an empowering book that demonstrates the positive power of sensitivity.
In this welcoming work, inspirational speaker Moorjani (Dying to Be Me) guides novice empaths, or those who feel more sensitive to their surroundings than most, in how to live a healthy life within an increasingly partisan society. She begins with a quiz to help readers determine their level of empathic ability and shares advice, personal anecdotes, and stories of those who have attended her workshops and retreats. Moorjani is most eloquent and persuasive when giving advice on embracing one's ego and weaknesses rather than constantly striving to rise above them: "There's a difference between having an ego and being egocentric. A healthy ego protects and fortifies you." She also doesn't shy from difficult or complex topics, like clinging to a victim mentality, stating, "The goal always has to be to take the control of our lives back, including getting professional help if necessary." Though Moorjani writes that the book "isn't about walls, barriers, and protection," multiple sections dedicated to strengthening mental boundaries and advice to avoid social situations that might "deplete your energy" come off as contradictory. Moorjani's revealing insights will appeal to her many fans as well as those just beginning to understand their empathic abilities.
