The Empath’s Survival Guide: Life Strategies for Sensitive People

By Dr Judith Orloff

What is the difference between having empathy and being an empath? “Having empathy means our heart goes out to another person in joy or pain,” says Dr. Judith Orloff. “But for empaths it goes much further. We actually feel others’ emotions, energy, and physical symptoms in our own bodies, without the usual defenses that most people have.” The Empath’s Survival Guide is an invaluable resource for empaths and anyone who wants to nurture their empathy and develop coping skills in our high-stimulus world—while fully embracing their gifts of intuition, compassion, creativity, and spiritual connection.

This practical, empowering, and loving book was created to support empaths through their unique challenges and help loved ones better understand the empath’s needs and gifts. Dr. Orloff offers crucial practices, including:

• Exercises to help you identify your empath type and where you are on the empathy spectrum
• Tools for protecting yourself from sensory overload, exhaustion, addictions, and compassion fatigue while replenishing your vital energy
• Simple, effective strategies to stop absorbing stress and physical symptoms from others and protect yourself from narcissists and other energy vampires
• How to find the right work that feeds you
• How to navigate intimate relationships without feeling overwhelmed
• Guidance for parenting and raising empathic children
• Awakening the empath’s gift of intuition and deepening your spiritual connection to all living beings

For any sensitive person who’s been told to “grow a thick skin,” here is a lifelong guide for staying fully open while building resilience, exploring your gifts of depth and compassion, and feeling welcome and valued by a world that desperately needs what you have to offer.

About The Ecstasy of SurrenderThe Ecstasy of Surrender by Judith Orloff

Are you longing for your life to be easier and more fun? Would you like to stop pushing, micromanaging, and forcing things so you can relax? What if you could enjoy what you have instead of always lusting for “more”? What if you could live in “the zone,” propelled by powerful currents toward the right people and opportunities? What if you could stop worrying about money and live with more emotional ease in the moment? If you answer “yes” to all these questions and desire lasting positive change, then prepare to experience the ecstasy of surrender.
The art of letting go, Dr. Judith Orloff explains, is the secret key to manifesting power and success in all areas of  life, including work, relationships, sexuality, radiant aging, and health and healing. In our superconnected world where emails and text messages constantly interrupt us, it’s easier to let go than you think. Once embraced, surrendering removes roadblocks and the exhaustion that comes from “trying too hard”—and it helps you achieve goals more effortlessly and brings ongoing happiness.

With her stunning gift for storytelling coupled with her unique, results-oriented approach to physical, emotional, and spiritual health—marrying neuroscience, psychiatry, intuitive medicine, energy techniques, and more—Judith provides a powerful, practical, and accessible map for anyone who is longing to be happier but who feels stuck, burned-out, tense, worried, or afraid to let go.

About Dr Judith Orloff 

“Dr. Orloff voices the message that intuition works as a potent therapeutic force that can help us lead smarter, saner lives. She is a serene maverick.” –USA Today

Transforming the face of psychiatry, Judith Orloff MD asserts that we are keepers of an innate intuitive intelligence so perceptive that it can tell us how to heal — and prevent — illness. Yet intuition and spirituality are the very aspects of our wisdom usually disenfranchised from traditional health care.

Dr. Orloff advocates “a democracy of healing,” wherein every aspect of our being is granted a vote in the search for total health. It is our birthright, both as health-care givers and health-care recipients, to reclaim our intuition to build energy and well-being. In response to her work, The Los Angeles Times calls Dr. Orloff “a prominent energy-based healer.”

Dr. Orloff is accomplishing for psychiatry what physicians like Dean Ornish and Mehmet Oz have done for mainstream medicine — she is proving that the links between physical, emotional, and spiritual health can’t be ignored. Dr. Orloff has spoken at medical schools, hospitals, the American Psychiatric Association, Fortune Magazine’s Most Powerful Women Summit, and alternative and traditional health forums — venues where she presents practical intuitive tools to doctors, patients, and everyday people.

As a board-certified psychiatrist and assistant professor of psychiatry at UCLA, Dr. Orloff draws upon her own intuitive abilities to help her patients and workshop participants. Dr. Orloff’s latest book “The Ecstasy of Surrender: 12 Surprising Ways Letting Go Can Empower Your Life” (Harmony Books, 2014) describes the power of letting go in everyday life, health, and wellness–an enlivening and sane alternative to pushing, forcing, and over controlling people and situations. In addition, her struggles acknowledging and then finally embracing her gift of intuition are chronicled in “Second Sight” (Warner Books). Her second book, “Dr. Judith Orloff’s Guide to Intuitive Healing” (Three Rivers Press) shows how breakthroughs in healing our body, emotions, and sexuality can be accomplished by listening to intuition. “Positive Energy,” which has been translated into 23 languages, takes a probing look at the American epidemic of exhaustion and how we can reverse it using specific strategies to build energy and combat draining people. Her New York Times Bestseller, “Emotional Freedom” describes how to transform negative emotions into positive ones with specific techniques.

A Talk by Judith Orloff in 2013 about The Ecstasy of Surrender

Meet Judy Marie Trimbur

Beginning in early May 2014, Judy Marie Trimbur will be touring cyber space to share information about her new book She Thought She Could She Did. It is an inspiring personal memoir – read on for more details about Judy Marie and her book…

Judy Marie Trimbur was twenty-eight years old when she first heard The Voice say, “Judy, no more!” She was about to sign a permission form for a third back surgery when she dropped the pen, left the doctor’s office, and threw out her pain medication forever. Two days later she visited an iridologist who sent her home with medicinal herbal supplements. The powerful healing properties contained in the herbs soon sparked a permanent transformation. The people at Mind Lab Pro couldn’t believe how well she did, she couldn’t fathom it then, but she had begun a journey not just to heal herself but to heal others. Within six months, her back was completely healed as was her rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, diverticulitis, chronic constipation, and Epstein-Barr symptoms. She had also lost sixty pounds!

SHE THOUGHT SHE COULD SHE DID A Miraculous Journey of Healing is the inspirational story of a woman who heard she would be in a wheelchair by the age of thirty yet listened to the Divine to find healing instead. Riddled with a degenerative bone condition and other debilitating illnesses since childhood, the author chose to ignore the doctors who said there wasn’t much further help they could offer. She faced the label of ‘crazy’ in her childhood and again later in life when seeking treatment through natural means. Judy Marie pressed forward, and eventually came to understood that her emotional and mental problems were the original source for her physical ailments, that there is a mind-body connection, and that to be totally healed she would need to mend her soul—her spiritual self.

Although her diseases above healed quickly, their causes took much longer to bubble to the surface and dissipate. This explains why after almost three decades of being a gifted natural healer and provider of herbal products, Judy Marie believes she contracted what she calls her breast cancer condition. Diagnosed through traditional methods, her tumor was nonetheless eradicated through extensive emotional and physical cleansing—not by the normal surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation.

Perhaps Judy Marie needed to wait for this final episode to reveal her story to the world through writing SHE THOUGHT SHE COULD SHE DID At fifty-five years “young” she feels she has come full circle from a fledgling healer of others to a brave soul unafraid of cynicism and criticism. She knows that through prayer, herbs, ancient remedies, and changes in their diets, she was instrumental in healing her three young children—one from Grand Mal seizures, another from asthma and ADD, and the third from death’s door due to a severe reaction to her DTP vaccinations.

Not only did Judy heal herself physically, emotionally, and spiritually, and become a healer of others using herbs and sometimes what can only be described as mystical methods, she pulled herself out of poverty, providing for her children and their education, buying her own home in Colorado.

Through it all, she has sought out practices and teachers in the natural healing domain as well as the Native American realm. She has built Judy Marie’s Miracles of Health business platform (www.miraclesofhealth.com) on years of formulating her own herbal dietary supplements and products that sell to customers, retailers and wholesalers, around the globe. Along with client consultations, she speaks and teaches on a regular basis and her social media following is rapidly gaining momentum.

To Judy Marie Trimbur, writing and selling SHE THOUGHT SHE COULD SHE DID will simply be a natural extension of what she calls her service to the universe—healing her world, healing our world. On her journey, she has met many influential authors and speakers including Alan Cohen, Hans Christian King, Dr. Wayne Dyer and current bestselling author Anita Moorjani (Dying To Be Me: My Journey from Cancer, to Near Death, to True Healing).

Like the above well-read authors, Judy knows she has more than one book to share with her audience, mainly women of all ages who are her current customers and attend her health seminars. Future titles include: A Mother’s LoveHerbs Are Our FriendsHealing Root Causes, Healthier Than Ever, and Ancient Natural Remedies.  She discovered these genuine possibilities while working on this book and proposal, realizing that she had much more to relay through the written word than her personal story of healing and becoming a healer.

Although basically an inspirational memoir, SHE THOUGHT SHE COULD SHE DID is different from other books in its genre. It not only goes into detail about the author’s own healing journey and healing gifts, it shows the reader that Judy Marie  has continued to heal herself, most recently from her breast cancer condition and codependent relationships, and is strong and healthy almost thirty years since she first heard The Voice in that doctor’s office. She is literally a walking testament to praying for help, knowing it will come, and then embracing it when it does.

She Thought She Could She Did - Judy Marie TrimburABOUT THE BOOK

SHE THOUGHT SHE COULD SHE DID A Miraculous Journey of Healing is a natural outpouring of Judy Marie Trimbur’s life and business. More than a memoir, it covers stages of her growth as a person and a healer as well as giving some practical applications for the reader. The book includes stories of the divine path opening up through pain, which presents opportunities for healing.   There are twelve chapters, each chapter providing an exercise and lesson at the end meant to serve as a catalyst for the reader on their own path of healing.

The book dives right into Judy Marie’s first physical healings through herbs and other methods, and the beginnings of her emotional healing.  From health challenges to relationship problems, financial difficulties, and a search for answers through religions, into finally following her own path to health, happiness, and wholeness.  The first four chapters are:

  • The Voice
  • Are You Crazy
  • There is Always a Reason
  • Remembering Me

This includes the author’s powerful resolve that has kept her moving forward despite some overwhelming difficulties—to never give up, choosing health and life over pain and premature death.

The memoir also contains stories about Judy Marie healing others, such as her adopted Hopi mother and her three children, and details the author’s development as a healer—how she discovered her healing gifts, how herbs play an important role, which teachers have enlightened her, what methods she has learned, and why everyone has the potential to heal. These chapter titles are:

  • My First Healer
  • Starving to Death/Starving to Heal
  • Teachers
  • The Greatest Something You Can Ever Do

The author’s work philosophy is that whether she is blessing the herbs or writing this book, each action equals the other. They all have the same aim—to serve self, humanity, and the universe.

The story not only delves deeper into Judy’s beliefs about her purpose as a healer but the purpose of each person who seeks healing. Judy uses personal stories to expound on caring for herself physically, emotionally, and spiritually. She also provides the reader with self-care lists and suggestions.  This can be seen in the following chapters:

  • If There’s A Will There’s a Way
  • Listening to Spirit, Following the Heart
  • Peeling Potatoes
  • A Divine Healing

The book also echoes a belief held by many in these end times that those who seek personal healing for themselves and others—both body and soul—are actually helping to heal Mother Earth.
