Are you forever rushing around, fending off chronic exhaustion? Are you desperately overcommitted, afraid to say no? Do you have fang marks from being bled dry by energy vampires? Does the onslaught of violence in the news leave you drained? If so, you're the victim of a hidden energy crisis. To resolve it you need more than traditional solutions such as eating well, getting a good night’s sleep, and exercising. Here at last is the complete prescription to stop you from feeling constantly drained and enables you to live a more vibrant life: the Positive Energy Program created by Judith Orloff, M.D.

Dr. Orloff is the pioneer behind Energy Psychiatry, 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 exciting new discipline and how it led her to formulate ten essential prescriptions for boosting energy, improving relationships, and combating energy vampires. The prescriptions are:

• Awaken your intuition and rejuvenate yourself--and learn the cure for technodespair and overload from emails, computers, and phones
• Find a nurturing spiritual path that fits your own beliefs and inner stirrings
• Design an energy-aware approach to diet, exercise, and health--and learn how to avoid the "energetic overeating" that sabotages attempts to lose weight
• Generate positive emotional energy to counter negativity
• Develop a heart-centered sexuality
• Open yourself to the flow of creativity and inspiration to achieve greater joy
• Celebrate the sacredness of laughter, pampering, and the replenishment of retreat--it’s not selfish to take care of yourself
• Discover how to attract positive people and situations
• Protect yourself from energy vampires with specific
shielding techniques
• Create abundance and a continuing flow of energy

The purpose of this program is to make your life easier. Each prescription has clear instructions for practicing the simple, powerful exercises Dr. Orloff gives her patients and uses herself--plus, there’s a "Treat Yourself" section to help you relax and enjoy the program’s full benefits. Following each chapter are Dr. Orloff’s interviews with luminaries who share their personal secrets about how they use a specific prescription to generate more energy. You'll discover how Quincy Jones’s intuition opened up after brain surgery, Larry King honed his interviewing techniques, Naomi Judd recovered from hepatitis C, and Jamie Lee Curtis deals with draining people.

Dr. Orloff says, "We can't stop the negative circumstances of our time--our cell phones will keep ringing, e-mails will keep coming, people will be rude, our children will be demanding, and bad things will happen in the world. But we can learn ways to protect our energy so that we can stay centered in dealing with the stresses that arise." Positive Energy 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. Filled with Dr. Orloff's warmth, humor, and compassion, Positive Energy is your tool kit for transforming fatigue, stress, and fear into an abundance of vibrance, strength, and love.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Positively Powerful Life Tools I just love the fact that Dr. Orloff is both a medically trained psychiatrist and a psychic, an intellectual and a spiritual soul, a teacher of medicine and spirituality, a master teacher and humble student, with both a logical and intuitive mind. She gives credibility to her teachings, and demonstrates that our divinity and our existence is beyond the simplistic model of body and mind as was commonly taught in medical schools and our society. Dr. Orloff is an inspirational master teacher and healer. The book is perfectly organized with step by step practical techniques that follows each topic. This is truly an excellent manual to learn the tools of empowerment and healing. It has tons of useful hard core information, her professional and spiritual experiences and insights that sets it apart from any other self-help books written by credible authors that I've read over the years. You'll love it and wonder why you didn't get the better quality hardcover version. The best version is not what's in the book, it's the best version of who you choose to become inside :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Illuminating the mind in more ways than one Positive Energy is physical proof that books are bound light. Traditional psychiatry and clinical psychology base diagnosis on categories, chemistry, and synaptic challenges. For those seeking healing, the cure is not always found in serotonin boosters, dopamine inhibitors, or lithium. Many patients suffering from what linear medical thinking deems hypochondria, neurosis, generalized anxiety, and other nervous disorders can be simple energy disturbances manifesting themselves. It is true that there are bonafide instances of neurological and brain disfunction ... but that is only half the picture. Dr. Orloff explains clearly with brilliance how human energy plays a significant role in well-being. We are minds and bodies, and her energy psychiatry weaves together the intellect and intuition of whole healing. This is a must-read textbook and road map for those who seek an integrated medical approach without falling prey to New Age healing quacks. Drugs have their place in treating many conditions. But so does energy medicine. Positive energy is a guide that generates more positive vibes no matter where one starts their healing path.
