Dr. Judith Orloff is the author of Emotional Freedom. She talks about liberating ourselves from negative emotions and transforming our life. I would love to read this book.
Picture yourself trapped in a traffic jam feeling utterly calm. Imagine being unflappable and relaxed when your supervisor loses her temper. What if you were peaceful instead of anxious? What if your life were filled with nurturing relationships and a warm sense of belonging? This is what it feels like when you've achieved emotional freedom.
National bestselling author Dr. Judith Orloff invites you to take a remarkable journey, one that leads to happiness and serenity, and a place where you can gain mastery over the negativity that pervades daily life. No matter how stressed you currently feel, the time for positive change is now. You possess the ability to liberate yourself from depression, anger, and fear.
Synthesizing neuroscience, intuitive medicine, psychology, and subtle energy techniques, Dr. Orloff maps the elegant relationships between our minds, bodies, spirits, and environments. With humor and compassion, she shows you how to identify the most powerful negative emotions and how to transform them into hope, kindness, and courage. Compelling patient case studies and stories from her online community, her workshop participants, and her own private life illustrate the simple, easy-to-follow action steps that you can take to cope with emotional vampires, disappointments, and rejection.
Emotional Freedom is a road map for those who are stressed out, discouraged, or overwhelmed as well as for those who are in a good emotional place but want to feel even better. As Dr. Orloff shows, each day presents opportunities for us to be heroes in our own lives: to turn away from negativity, react constructively, and seize command of any situation. Complete emotional freedom is within your grasp.
Here are some words of encouragement to everyone who reads this post:
- Be grateful. Don't underestimate the power of gratitude. Blog post here.
- Spill less "beans". Better still, don't share for the sake of sharing. You never know who will use what words you said against you.
- Be nice. Be pleasant, even if it's a mask or the best poker face you put on. Bottom line is: Don't be nasty. Nastiness doesn't get you anywhere. People remember, especially all the nasty stuff you did and the nasty words you said.
- Be kind. Kindness is one of mankind's virtue, the bastion of civilization.
- Never forget people who impact your life positively, including those who don't.
