Banyen's Description: 

Are you a rushing-around, exhausted human? Are you desperately overcommitted, afraid to say no? Drained by energy vampires? Does the onslaught of violence in the media leave you toasted? If so, you’ve got a real energy crisis, and to resolve it you need more than “eating well, getting a good night’s sleep, and exercising.” Positive Energy is what you need.

 A psychiatrist and medical intuitive, Judith Orloff is the pioneer in a new field that addresses the subtle energetic components of health and behavior. “Energy Psychiatry” blends the practice of mainstream medicine with an emerging scientific understanding of subtle energies, revered by many cross-cultural healing traditions as our life force. In Positive Energy, Dr. Orloff explains this new discipline and how it led her to formulate ten essential prescriptions for boosting energy, tuning up relationships, and combating energy vampires. The prescriptions are:

ª  Awaken your intuition and rejuvenate yourself

ª  Find a nurturing spiritual path

ª  Design an energy-aware approach to diet, exercise, and health

ª  Generate positive emotional energy to counter negativity

ª  Develop a heart-centered sexuality

ª  Open yourself to the flow of creativity and inspiration to achieve greater joy

ª  Celebrate the sacredness of laughter and the replenishment of retreat

ª  Discover how to attract positive people and situations

ª  Protect yourself from energy vampires with specific shielding techniques

ª  Create abundance and a continuing flow of energy.

Each prescription includes clear instructions for practicing simple, powerful 3-minute exercises to get it in the body. Following each chapter are her interviews with luminaries who share their personal secrets about how they use a specific prescription to generate more energy.

Gaining more energy means you’ll be able to breathe in the sweetness of night-blooming jasmine, marvel at the sight of storms converging in the twilight sky, or giggle unpredictably at the silliest things. It will allow you to commit yourself, personally and politically, to avoiding a life tyrannized by fear—rather guiding your actions by the heart and intuition.

Filled with Judith’s warmth, humour, and compassion, this “Positive Energy Toolkit” shows you how to “slow down time to match your natural rhythms, allowing you to be fully present for your life.” Learning this can make the difference between an exuberant life and one you’re always recovering from.

Also by Judith Orloff is Dr. Judith Orloff’s Guide to Intuitive Healing.
