Re- plete with skills and strat- egies to prevent energy burnout, it also serves as a wellspring of comfort and encouragement for those struggling with empathic sensitivities. The world is not yet an enlightened place, compassionate to the energetic sensitivities of the empath who becomes overburdened by the constant download- ing of subtle energies around them. Often regarded as "over-sensitive," the empath senses others' energy and emotions, taking them on as their own, creating a destruc- tive dilemma that results in anxiety and fatigue. Dr. Orloff wants empaths to thrive, and offers the tools necessary to prevent energetic burnout: self-protection exercises, vi- sualizations, affi rmations, and self-assessments. Her book illuminates the scientifi c research that supports neurologi- cal, emotional, and electromagnetic connections with em- pathic people. They absorb energies—big, small, positive, negative—because of their reactive neurological systems. Dr. Orloff, herself an empath, provides a brilliant yet simple explanation of the empath's experience: They feel things fi rst, then think. Empathic members of our society don't necessarily have it easy. With everything from parties to traveling to work environments to relationships, empaths often have a tough road to navigate. Obstacles abound, and Dr. Orloff, with compassion, insight, and understanding, will help them steer through wisely. Readers learn about the various types of empaths and how to discover if they or any family mem- bers are empathic. Understanding and accepting the em- path's role and how to manage it is essential. They perceive the world in multilayered ways; certainly that has its chal- lenges, yet there are advantages. Awakened sensitivities and expanded intuition help the empath tune into wider perceptions. It is okay to be sensitive, so embrace your em- pathic nature as the profound gift that it is. —Ashley Ess BOOKS april/may 2017 33
