Summary: An affirmation can be your most potent ally for immediate self-care when you’re feeling overwhelmed, stressed, or stuck in negative thinking. “Affirmations are like friends you can call on when you need protection, grounding, a loving attitude adjustment, or a reminder of your strengths,” says Dr. Judith Orloff. “For empaths and all caring people, they are a crucial element of self-care.” With Affirmations for Empaths, this trusted empathy expert and “godmother of the empath movement” presents a new resource filled with her favorite affirmations to support sensitive people.

Affirmations are powerful tools that can radically enhance the quality of your life―especially when used daily. Dr. Orloff offers key strategies for getting the most out of affirmations, with guidance for strengthening your intentions, reinforcing the energy of affirmations, and creatively personalizing your practice. You’ll have 52 affirmations to explore, with space for weekly journaling, organized into eight topics: Treasuring Yourself, Nurturing Vitality, Creating Wellness, Balancing Emotions, Building Healthy Relationships, Discovering Purpose & Work, Honoring Intuition, and Finding Sanctuary

“Words and beliefs contain energy,” says Dr. Orloff. “Affirmations are energy shifters. They let you say no to any thoughts, habits, or beliefs that don’t serve you.” This journal offers simple, quick, and effective tools for supporting your empathic gifts of intuition, compassion, and joyous connection.
