1.0 out of 5 stars... is saying but it is too lengthy and not easy to read

I am not sure what she is saying but it is too lengthy and not easy to read. she has good concepts but the book would be more valuable if it is shorter and easy to read and grasp. I am a physician and I believe in all she talks about.
Dr. Orloff does an incredible job of reconnecting your mind with your body's needs to help you promote your own wellness. She also gives guidance on using your intuitive ability to select better care providers, and to create an environment in which true healing can take place. I was diagnosed with a degenerative nerve condition several years ago, and the tools outlined in this book are helping me to feel my best and get the most out of life. This is exactly what I needed at this moment in my life. THANK YOU!
I am a psychiatric rn and ive been working on my certification in spiritual counseling to add into my home health practice. Dr Orloff's book is part of the last module and I was so happy I saved the best for last. This book really gave me a lot think about not only for my patients but for myself.The one concept I loved reading about was psychoneuroimmunology - which basically put into words something I tell my patients all the time - the head bone is connected to the rest of the body bone and in order to stay healthy all three areas have to be addressed and not seen as separate entities but as a whole: body, mind and soul. Dr Orloff totally shares her self in her books- they are very warm and comforting as as I imagine she is.
I love this book (Intuitive Healing )and its concept of giving 5 steps in each chapter to help me process life's events. It validates and embraces all of me. It speaks to and guides my spirit, as I take My Turn on the journey of dealing with my father, hospice, and a non-caring cancer specialist.
My favorite quote is, "Death opens a doorway of perception...
secrets of the spirit will be revealed." (p.233) Dream work at the end of each chapter is my favorite of the 5 steps.
My favorite chapter is 7, Centering and Protection; as a clinical psychologist I have to constantly find ways to stay centered and to protect my personal power in order to minister to my clients with efficacy.
Intuitive Healing/Dr. Orloff; gave me step by step ways to call my spirit back from the "wailing well". And it has helped me find sacred space and a way to stay grounded as I complete My Turn on this challenging journey.This book is my guiding light.
Intuitive Healing and its 5 steps will be one more tool to help me and my clients recognize synchronicity and intuition at work in our everyday grind. It will be required reading for my clients.
Dr. Judith Orloff’s Guide to Intuitive Healing was written, as she claims, “with all her heart and knowledge,” and it clearly shows. Here is a Five Step Program which is both dynamic and holistic. Dr. Orloff takes the reader on a journey to wellness; focusing in on the physical, emotional, and sexual aspects of human life. Each chapter is divided in the following way: Step 1. Notice Your Beliefs. Step 2. Be in Your Body. Step 3. Sense Your Body’s Subtle Energy. Step 4. Ask for Inner Guidance. Step 5. Listen to Your Dreams. With examples taken from her own experiences as well as those of her patients and friends, she weaves together the medicinal and spiritual arts and illustrates how healing is as much a part of one’s outlook on life and world as it is a centering on the body, mind, and spirit. As a professor who offers a course on dreaming, I was particularly delighted with the fifth step in Dr. Orloff’s program which looks to the dream as that which brings special messages to us. Unlike many in the medical profession who dismiss the significance of dreams and dreaming, she embraces the dream, recognizing its power to bring healing and wellness to those who heed its warnings and advice. It is clear to me that readers will not only benefit from this wonderful book, but will be enriched in all aspects of their lives if they follow Dr. Orloff’s insightful steps. As she states in her Introduction: “It is your right to heal. It is your right to look inside yourself for the answers.” Anthony L.

When the holistic relationship between mind, emotions and body first attracted public interest thirty years ago, few were aware of the implications where this science, the discoveries in quantum entanglement, and the "rediscovery" of traditional psychologies would lead. A few brave, intelligent and loving pioneers have been bringing the practical results of this blending of science and spirituality to the public. Dr. Orloff is one of these people and her book "Intuitive Healing" offers anecdotal, practical and revealing guidance for those trying to understand the new territory where science and intuition meet and the seeming conflicts are resolved in favor of a new understanding of mankind and our potentialities. Not only is her message important, but she writes in an accessible, clear and personal style that cuts beyond both medical and "psychic" jargon. I recommend this book to anyone who is curious, a professional healer, and for those who feel stirrings of some new understandings of their own emotions and abilities.
In times of fear this book gives positive and absolute guidance on moving forward to bring about wonderful healings to the heart, body and soul. After discovering that my son had stomach cancer, I immediately ordered a copy for him. The words in this book brought peace and assurance that we have control over every situation. How we react to any situation we may find ourselves in makes a difference.
