Now with a new foreword from the author, New York Times bestselling author Dr. Judith Orloff tells her remarkable life story and teaches you how to recognize and trust your own intuitive gifts to improve your life—and the lives of those around you.
In this updated edition, Dr. Orloff reflects on her career and the sea change that modern medicine and psychiatry have experienced since Second Sight was first published. She expands her earlier ideas and further explores intuition’s role in maintaining physical health and emotional well-being, using examples from her own and her patients’ lives. This is both a remarkable self-portrait of one woman’s journey toward the acceptance of intuition as a therapeutic tool, and a comprehensive look at how you, too, can develop your intuition, transform your health, and revolutionize your everyday life.
Praise for Second Sight
"Orloff is a true visionary. She is the kind of physician we wish we all had." —Caroline Myss, Ph.D., author of Sacred Contracts

You will find a new friend in Judith as her writing is as intimate as if she was talking to you in her living room." —Joan Borysenko, Ph.D., author of Mending the Mind, Minding the Spirit
"Judith Orloff is a seriously talented storyteller, and her book moves like a thriller...Forgive me this moment of intuition, but this book feels right." —Jesse Kornbluth, Huffington Post

"An exemplary and eloquently written story that makes it easy for nonbelievers in intuition to believe. You must read this book."
"Judith Orloff is a talented writer, and her book moves like a thriller… Orloff's real goal is to awaken your sense that you too are an intuitive --- indeed, that we all are --- and that you can sharpen your gifts. If you've ever had an experience that gives you chills to remember, if you ever find that you 'know' facts about people they would never have told you, this book will be a great relief and a door to more… Forgive me my moment of intuition, but this book feels right."

That's how it felt to read Dr. Judith Orloff's Second Sight - like one of those wonderful all-night conversations that you'll never forget. Through her warmth and honesty she reminded me that there is a place for Empaths in this world. We must not let the fear of untrained gifts stop us from accepting our calling. Hiding from it doesn't help. Judith's story leads ultimately to acceptance of this.
Presented in two parts, Second Sight begins with Initiations, detailing Judith's difficult lessons and growth toward acceptance that medicine and intuition can be successfully integrated into both work and life. In part two, Teachings, Dr. Orloff shares "practical techniques to develop intuition, dreams, and a connection with your own spiritual path."
"What saved me were the angels who appeared along the way - mentors and teachers who had travelled this path before and shared their wisdom with me. This made all the difference."
This book has been that for me. An angel along the way. A mentor encouraging acceptance of my gifts. A teacher sharing a path through the traps and pain. A friend holding out a light in the dark. A kindred spirit. Judith, Thank you for sharing your self, your story, your truth. It has been an honor and a real blessing to me.
If you're an Empath, Intuitive, or otherwise sensitive, read this book.
If you aren't, but want to understand, read this book.
