This is a series of articles dedicated to helping women give ourselves the 7 Basic Permissions to succeed. Scroll down to subscribe to entire series in an Ebook Series that will be sent to your email, one ebook a month, for easy digestion.

Note: This post is an update from the previous post by the same name. I tried to include the first article here, but it was too long and the continuation links got broken. Sorry about that. I’ve taken care of this by updating the article to a shorter version and providing the ebook series for those who can benefit from more detail. Thanks for your patience, and enjoy the article below, which has some new insights.

 

ARTICLE 1:

Give yourself the Permission to DESERVE what you want

 

First permission to succeed: Permission to deserve what you want

First permission to succeed: Permission to deserve what you want

 

I’m talking on the phone with a great international artist. I congratulate her on the success of her current exhibition. Suddenly I hear a shocking confession.

“Yes, I know. It’s been well received. But you know what? I really do not FEEL like a success.”

As a soul healer and shaman, I am a psychic huntress. I track down patterns of energy not only in individuals, but in groups. For months now I’ve been on the scent of a mortal enemy of women’s success and wellbeing.

This enemy brings a scent of despair and diminishes a woman’s intrinsic value. It minimizes her contributions. It transforms a woman’s self- perception from success to insufficiency.

The Question

I’m chatting with a friend in a café. This is a woman who I admire, love and respect. She is a cultural leader, an exquisite poet and a college professor. She acknowledges that she is not working in the way she wants, not living her potential to its fullest. The obstacles seem insurmountable and she feels trapped.

I went home and hunted down the unasked question in the conversation.

“Why is it so hard for me to do what I want to do?”

The Answer

The long history of denial that women have experienced collectively is embedded in the individual energy patterns of each woman.  The problem is not that we consciously rate ourselves as a failure. Most of the women I interviewed knew the objective value of their achievements.

Women not give themselves emotional permission to succeed. The denial to succeed is subconscious, emotional and implicit. This denial works as a hidden interference to our conscious intent to create a fulfilling life.

The Underbelly of Success

The stories that we tell ourselves are rarely the real story. When we tell ourselves the reasons why we can’t do what we want to do, we focus on external circumstances, usually having to do with how giving to others take precedence over our own desires. But that is a lie we’ve been told and we keep telling ourselves.

If we look at the underbelly of success, however, it is rarely about circumstances and much more about permissions. It is about giving ourselves the emotional and spiritual permissions to be, have, create and enjoy what we desire.

Women need to restore the energy gateways for these permissions. They are not built-in, as is usually the case in most men, who have been socialized for centuries in the belief that they are made to achieve things in the world.

Many of us unwittingly fall into the role of victim, in spite of being powerful women, often leaders and high achievers. We do this by pitting our right to succeed against the wellbeing of our loved ones. Guilt is the glue that keeps us stuck, though we rarely recognize its scent in our self-sacrifice.

Why does an accomplished writer, artist, expert or leader who has taught, guided, helped and empowered hundreds of people feel unsuccessful? Because she is serving others in ways that do not fulfill her Soul’s needs. Success needs to be measured by the degree of fulfillment of your Soul, not by social criteria seen from outside the Self. I call this Success with Soul.

Many spiritual paths tell you that you are here to serve others, not for yourself. I disagree. We came here for our own evolution. That is not in opposition to love or service. We are one. You are a mirror to me and part of me. When you honor your essence, you give me permission to honor mine. The war between self and others is part of the selflessness myth that has limited women for centuries.

But there is something else.

For centuries we have sustained community, nourished families and transformed societies without as much as a thank you. We have gotten used to trying harder and giving more. We are seeking perfection as the gateway to give ourselves permission to succeed.

If we have achieved mastery of our creativity, but are not yet prosperous, we feel that we have failed.  If we have achieved prosperity, but do not have a love partner, we again feel that we are not that much of a success. We throw away the baby with the basinet, so to speak.

Why is it so hard to give yourself what you want?

1.       Because you believe that if you are happy, someone will suffer. For centuries, you’ve been sold in the definition of love as self-sacrifice.

2.       Because your relationship, empathic and nurturing gifts have been historically pitted against you. The training you’ve received on how to be a mother, friend, daughter or caregiver is to give by cutting off pieces of yourself. But you cannot subtract from what you don’t have.

3.       Because you believe that you are not good enough to have what you want. You believe that if you take care of others first, then and only then will you deserve the right to have what you want.

Here’s a solution you can try at home to create new gateways to give yourself permission to succeed.

Make a list of seven things that make you happy or that your body and soul need right now. These things need to be small enough that they are doable now, but challenging enough that you have not given yourself these things in a long time. For the next seven weeks, give yourself one of these things once a week.

Examples:

  • Take a day off and go to a SPA to get a massage.
  • Give yourself a warm food bath with salts before going to bed.
  • Spend a week-end in a retreat to rest and relax.
  • Take a creative workshop to learn or improve one of your talents.
  • Write a poem or create a song expressing your Unique Essence.
  • Dance under the moon.

Offer your happiness as a gift to the world.

Why can’t I get motivated?

Why can’t I get motivated?

By Maria Mar(c)2010

Why can't you get motivated? Find out!

“Why can’t I get motivated?” Elizabeth asked me.

There are two different scenarios for depleted motivation: temporary and chronic.

I’ll cover the first one in this blog and the second one in a second blog, so stay tune. (Subscribe to this blog to get my weekly articles. Click the button to the upper right corner.)

Here’s the list of probable issues that are causing your de-motivation. To see the solutions, see the second section, below.

Temporary lack of motivation

If you are suffering from a temporary lack of motivation, then you are usually motivated, but find yourself in a motivational slump. Here are the causes that may be causing this slump.

1. Overwork. If you are burn-out, your body is depleted of energy. Your momentum slows down and your motivation suffers.

2. Taking too many ineffective actions. When your actions do not bring results, there is no renewal to the emotional energy you are using to generate them. Lack of results is like lack of food.

3. Plans and goals are not in harmony with your Purpose. Your path is not clear. The goals, plans or strategies you’ve laid out are not truly satisfying you. They may not be what your Soul desires or they may not be in harmony with your Life Purpose.

4. Doing too many difficult things for too long. Change is hard work. When you are changing the way you think, act and live, you are creating new pathways in your brain. This takes energy and it can take a toll in your passion.

5. Working hard without giving yourself rewards. If all you do is work, and you give yourself nothing to recognize the value of your work, then you are an oppressive boss to yourself. Your own “employees” are going to slow down and sabotage the enterprise.

6. Doing too many things you don’t like. Every project, whether it is personal or professional, has exciting, fun, creative things that you like to do and things that don’t like that much. If you are doing too many of the later and not enough of the things you like, you are killing your motivation.

7. Not receiving the results. Sometimes you expect certain results, but you get others instead. If you do not receive the results you get, because they are not the ones you expected, then you are repelling success. You are trying to control the flow of life, and rejecting the blessings life brings. You are depleting your own life force by placing a dike of limited expectations.

8. Feeling alone and abandoned. Have you asked for help? Have you engaged other experts to collaborate, guide or support you in your work? Have you shared your achievements, no matter how small, with your friends? If not, then you are trapped in the trance of Orphanhood. How can you be motivated?

9. Toxic environment. Are you surrounded by people who diminish your value, pressure you into betraying your dreams or constantly criticize or disbelief your goals? An environment that does not nurture your self-esteem and your dreams is toxic to your motivation.

Solutions

1. Overwork. Take a week or at least 4 days off. Get up late, go to bed early and take a nap. You should sleep at least 10 hours and rest at least 2 more. Spend at least one hour a day in nature. For women, being close to running water and walking barefoot on the earth renew our energy. Trees are powerful healers. Walk among them. Do things you like; alone and with your friends. Ask your Inner Child what she wants to do and then go have fun. When you regain energy and reconnect to the reason why you are doing what you are doing, the motivation will come back.

2. Taking too many ineffective actions. Your External Actions in the world are not working because there are hidden interferences “unweaving” what you weave, like the Myth of Penelope. You need to take Internal Actions to release the hidden interferences. Join my “I Want to Flourish” Fiesta to find free knowledge and resources.

3. Plans and goals are not in harmony with your Purpose. You need to stop your hectic doing and go within to listen to your Soul. You may be following Borrowed Dreams or Distorted Dreams. You need to go back to center in order to find your true path. Pre-order (or order) my novel. It will take you on a journey to heal this.

4. Doing too many difficult things for too long. You need to live in balance. Schedule fun, rest and pampering into your calendar. Balance difficult tasks with easy tasks. Give yourself time in the movies, a walk in the park and extra sleep during difficult jobs.

5. Working hard without giving yourself rewards. Reduce the number of tasks in your daily to-do list. Make sure you do the recommendations in the previous point. Buy some bright stars stickers and stick one at the end of each done task. At the end of each day, give yourself a round of applause and declare your accomplishments proudly. When you finish a project or achieve a goal, give yourself a great reward. Stop trying to do everything better. Value yourself and every little thing you do.

6. Doing too many things you don’t like. Balance your daily work by doing one thing you don’t like early in the morning followed by two things you love to do. Get or hire help to do the things you hate and the things that you are not good at.

7. Not receiving the results. When you send things into the world, open your mind and release the outcome. Receive every positive result that comes back. Open your heart and receive it in the knowledge that Life Mother knows better, and that Divine Design is at work. You will see how this seemingly insipid result multiplies its blessings in the future, better and farther than you could ever imagine.

8. Feeling alone and abandoned. Find your place of belonging with like-hearted people who support you. Ask your supportive friends for help. If you are unused to asking for help, you probably do not even see how others can help you. That’s your Orphanhood leading your life. You are not alone. Make an effort to find ways in which your friends can help you. Share your dreams with positive friends. Celebrate your goals with a party, dinner out or picnic.

9. Toxic environment. Examine how you invite, allow or are hooked with toxic people. Find memberships or communities of like-minded people who are seeking similar things. Get a mentor or coach. Avoid people who drain you or diminish your trust in your capacity or your dream, even if they are family. See them less, do not talk about your dreams or goals with them and place strong limits that disallow any negative comments. It may be tough at first, but they’ll eventually know not to step past your limits.

If you need more help, consider working under my mentorship and guidance.

How are you stuck?

Hello beautiful sisters and brothers,

If your Fairy Godmother showed up right now at your door and said:

“Ring!” (That’s the doorbell, not the Fairy Godmother. You open the door and THEN she says:

“They sent me here because you’ve been complaining that you are stuck. So here I am, at your service. What do you want in order to get unstuck?”

Smart Alec that you are, you are ready to reply “Solve all my problems,” but she stops you before you open your mouth.

“Don’t get too smart. You should know better than trying to circumvent the inter-dimensional rules of the Convention on Fairy Non-intervention on Free Will for Humans!”

At this point, your head starts spinning. What is she talking about?

“That old genie stuff of granting three wishes is illegal right now, as it disempowers you and cuts off the flow of the Law of Attraction by interfering with your internal process. But you can engage my help for vision, insights, knowledge, detachment, release and anything else in which I can help you to fulfill your free will. Basically, you can ask me a question.”

You get a hold of yourself and think hard.

“By my magic wand!” the Fairy Godmother exclaims. “I can hear the wheels of your mind from where I stand. Let me help you.  I am going to ask you seven questions. Ah! Seven! My favorite number. It’s so magical! What was I saying? Oh, yes! I will ask you seven questions. If you answer them truthfully, by the end of my questions, you will know exactly what you need to ask to get unstuck. How about that?

Still unable to speak, you nod.

“I take that as a yes,” your Fairy Godmother comments, with a twist of her wand.

And she produces a magic link (below). Go ahead. Click it. You will see your Fairy Godmother’s questions. At the end you will be able (and ready) to ask the magical question that will help you get unstuck. Then your Fairy Godmother, who has hired me for the job, will answer your question and send the answer directly into your email box. Now, that’s magic!

Click the magic wand now!

Click this wand to Ask your Fairy Godmother.

Click the wand to Ask your Fairy Godmother.

Light and love,

Maria Mar

NOTE: I hope that you understand this as a humorous call to complete the survey and understand that the answers will come from me. Of course, that is just the Mogul version of reality. If you are magical, you know that your Fairy Godmother has truly hired me for this job! ):

Are you a slave to your limitations?

Are you a Slave
to your Limitations?

By Maria Mar(c)2010

Inside you there is a great leader, a wise expert and gorgeous diva. She is waiting for you to remove the limited beliefs and secret mantras that run through your mind, hiding her from your own view. Your true Act of Power is not to convince others or to show your power to the world. It is to find this power within you and embrace it. Once you do, you become a force of nature. Nothing can stop this force. Not “what they say.” Not any obstacle on your way. Nothing. The only one stopping your power is
YOU!

Maria Mar

The Dream Alchemist

Do you crown your limitations, becoming their loyal
slave?


Many of us are enslaved to our opinions, confusing what we think with who we are. This confusion leads us to defend our opinions as if they were the very essence of our identity. In this scenario, anyone who holds a different view
is perceived as a thread to our existence.

If you are crowning your learned beliefs, fear-based emotions or habitual expectations and interpretations, then they become the Queen or King of your psyche, and you assign yourself the role of slave. This may seem unlikely, but it is in fact, fairly common. It is easy to see it in others, but very hard to see it in ourselves, and harder yet to change it.

Here I share some signs that you are crowning your limitations and some practical Shifts of Perceptions that may help you
reclaim your crown and become the true master of your mind.

Sign No. 1: Resistance

When you hear new concepts of explanations that seem impossible or strange to you, your immediate response is to counter them with your beliefs and opinions, using these as a shield to repel the new thoughts.

Shift No. 1: The Art of Receptivity

When you resist, you cannot receive. Whenever you encounter a different perspective of life, make a choice that there may be a hidden gift in this apparent opposition. Listen attentively. Open yourself to RECEIVE this new information. ASK extensively to make sure you understand it. ALLOW it to sink for a while and give yourself time to consider, or even research it further. You have the ultimate power to accept it or not, or to take whatever seems good to you from the presentation and weave it into your life.

Sign No. 2 Attachment

When you share your beliefs or perceptions, do you present them as they way you ARE, or as the way you see things right now?

Examples:

• This is just the way I am
• In my culture, family or line of work, this is the way we see it.
• I’m a pragmatic and do not believe in that esoteric stuff.

Shift No. 2: Detachment

Attachment binds you to the past. When you identify with explanations, concepts or beliefs, no matter how good you think they are, you are creating attachment. This energy pattern binds you to the past or to the known and familiar, obstructing your growth or freedom. Detach from your thoughts, opinions and beliefs. They are NOT you. They are simply thoughts and interpretations that can change without you being less valuable or wholesome.

Sign No. 3: Feelings of inadequacy

When you have nothing to say or do not know what to say or do not know what others are talking about, you feel stupid; so you begin to talk about what you know and want to channel the conversation that way, to go back to your Comfort Zone.

Shift No. 3: Centering

You are not what you know, do or say. Your value as a human being ~even your value as a professional~ is not determined by what you know, do or say. There are intrinsic values in who you are that are much more essential and powerful than this external parameters. Shift into your intrinsic value, your Basic Goodness and your Unique Essence. From that place, you can enjoy curiosity and wonder for new knowledge without feeling insufficient.

Sign No. 4: Competitiveness

You position yourself from the start in a power place by quoting from great people, showing off your book-knowledge, dropping names or listing your qualifications. You keep the game in your court by making others compete with you. When someone contributes with a new knowledge or thought that you may not understand or know about, you immediately quote a new book or concept and bring the game to your field.

Shift No. 4: Collaboration

Competition creates stress because it triggers the flight or fight response and ignites the chemistry of adrenaline. For many men this may be like a sport, and they may enjoy the sparring because that’s the way the sympathetic systems (the Male Way or your Shiva Power) is wired. But for most women and for creative men, this modality creates stress and lowers their energy level. Yes, you are putting them in the defensive mood and this may give you an illusion of victory. But consider: do you really want people to remember you as a source of stress? Do you think that when your peers see you as a threat, a person who’s always one-upping others and someone who does not share the spotlight, they will be more willing to recommend, hire or include you in their projects? The answer is no. Try instead to shift into a collaborative stance. Share the spotlight. Commend their insights. Receive their wisdom. Become a source of support, inspiration and resources. This is a place of true power, as you are not coming from defensiveness or hunger for attention, but from your core strength and a place of collaboration.

Sign No. 5: Fear-based expectations

When you speak your truth, share your creativity or present your solutions, you feel exposed and vulnerable. To offset this feeling, you wrap your presentation in an envelope of excuses, justifications, quotes from authorities, statistics or pre-emptive attacks for those whom you expect will attack you.

Shift No. 5: The Art of Vulnerability

Any good writer or actor knows this: people don’t like perfect characters. They love characters that are vulnerable and flawed, but who are trying their best. Become a great character in your own life by allowing yourself to be vulnerable. However, do not play victim or offer yourself as bate. Allow your Unique Essence and genuine qualities to shine through that vulnerability without playing stupid. Release your negative expectations and fuel your positive expectations by inspiring others to their best while doing your best.

Sign No. 6: Control Addiction

You need to be in control. If a conversation goes into a direction that is new to you or in which you do not excel, you feel very uncomfortable and immediately act to bring it into a field that you can control. If what you present is not accepted, you feel that you are losing control and you feel compelled to keep trying to convince others or find other means of staying in control. If others gain the spotlight, you feel that they are taking control away from you and you attack them or feel rejected.

Shift No. 6: Surrender

Release the patriarchal definition of power as control. Control creates an exclusionary perception of power that does not allow power to be shared. If you have it, I lost it. Become a Power-sharer. Find ways in which you can tap into each person’s power to enhance them as you spotlight yours. When others are shining, acknowledge their brilliance. It takes one to know another. When you acknowledge others’ powers, you are showcasing yours.

Your interpretation colors your perception. Your perception creates your world by affecting how you respond to any situation, and hence, the results. Free yourself from the limitations in your perception, and the sky is the limit for you!

Tool:

Break Free from what Holds you Back

This package contains the guided experience and tools you need to break from limiting beliefs. It helps you track down how you inherited false beliefs from your family dynamics. Journal writing, movement meditations and arts & crafts projects in the workbook help you track down and release false beliefs.

Book Review: The Leader who had no title


Dream Alchemist’s Book Review

By Maria Mar



Author: Robin Sharma

Book: The Leader Who had No Title
A Modern Fable on Real Success in Business and in  Life


“No one’s unimportant. There are ono extra people alive today. Every person and every job matters, and all work can be made meaningful with the Lead Without the Title philosophy.”


Robin Sharma
The Leader Who
had No Title

A Modern Fable on Real Success

in Business and in  Life



I’ve been as charged up lately as if I’d been plugged into a giant Eveready
battery.


My secret?


I read a tiny book with a huge power to move the human spirit.


The book?




The Leader Who had no Title: A Modern Fable on Real Success in Business and
in Life.


The author?


Robin Sharma, a leader who has been voted the Number Two top leader in the
world and whose legendary book, The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari sold
millions of copies in more than fifty-five countries.


The message in this tiny book has been igniting a quiet revolution as it travels among innovative leaders and creators. It has ignited the leadership
of Fortune 500 companies such as Microsoft, IBM, GE, FedEx and of organizations such as Yale University and the Young Presidents Organization. I am blessed to have it right now in my hands, even before it is launched into the world to reach yours.


Here’s my vision for this book.


Get ready. A revolution is coming. It is a revolution that humanity needs right now for our evolution. It is a revolution in leadership. The message is simple, but its repercussions are world-changing. Here it is in a nutshell:


You have the power to be a leader who transforms the world, one person at a time, no matter what you do and what title you have. Whether it is in your personal life, in your family or at work, you can become a leader who inspires and makes the world a little better every day. And you don’t need a title to do that!


This leadership revolution is truly democratic. It is based in the tenet that organizations, corporations, families and communities of the 21st century must train each member to be a leader.


“Please, no!” You may be thinking. “What’s going to happen with so many people trying to control, compete and get to the top?!”


This type of leadership attitude is out of the game in the coming leadership revolution. Robin Sharma proposes a redefinition of leadership. The new leader is a person who strives for excellence in all s/he does and who seeks to leave this world a better place. S/he defines success by what she gives, not by what s/he gets.


The I-Ching and almost every wise tradition agrees. In ancestral spiritual traditions, the leader is the servant of the people. Now Robin Sharma is saying that even servants and low-ranking workers, no matter how low in the command chain they find themselves, are also leaders.


Robin Sharma has three gifts. He is a visionary leader. He is an excellent teacher. And he is a great motivator. He conveys his message through storytelling, which is my favorite medium, one proven to drive the message deep into the psyche.


The parable he created is the quest of a young veteran, Blake Davis. As a matter of fact, Blake’s first teacher is a housekeeper in a high-end hotel. Yet Anna understands the importance of her job.  She knows that she is not an insignificant domestic, as others may see her. She really is “the good will ambassador for the hotel and someone who manages its brand by the way I behave.”


Think about this. You may believe that Anna is delusional. Yet she is right on the dot. When you enter a restaurant or hotel, who is the first line of
representatives you meet? Who establishes the level of elegance, efficiency and warmth of the establishment? Waiters, receptionists and housekeepers. Yet our society sees them as less because of the type of service they render
and the amount of money they earn.


What would happen if organizations and communities would begin to treat each working person with the honor her or his service deserves? What would happen if each person knew the importance of her/his work for the company and the people s/he touches?


That is the revolution that Robin Sharma proposes. And I say. It’s about time!

Who can find help and fuel in
this book?


If you are feeling de-motivated or down due to the economy, your role at work or your feeling of powerlessness to change your life, get this book
immediately.


If you are an entrepreneur, leader, free-lancer, manager or organizer, this book will put fire in your belly and is a great tool for your crew.

Here are a few more ideas:
PARENTS


This book can give you a blueprint to empower the members in your family. Educate children and youth who assume their personal power and responsibility in the world.

TEACHERS
The leadership revolution Robin Sharma proposes demands a new way of teaching. Gone is the culture of obedience that makes education so boring in many schools. This book will challenge and illuminate you on how to empower
each student to become a leader.

BOSSES:
Bring your corporation and leadership style into the 21st century and help your company survive this hard times by transforming each employee into a leader who does his/her best for the corporation.

WORKERS:
Understand how your current job, no matter what your position is in the company, is the vehicle for your personal growth and spiritual evolution. You can become a Leader without a Title!


Here are some of my favorite
bites of wisdom:

  • Potential unrealized turns to pain.

  • Sustained change only happens when we shift at an emotional rather than at a logical level.

  • There’s no dead-end job in this whole wide and unpredictable world of ours-only dead-end thinking.

  • It is impossible to build a tribute to success on a foundation of excuses.

  • Great people construct monuments with the stones their critics throw at them.

  • Daily ripples of superior performance add up over time to a tidal wave of success.

  • Beliefs are nothing more than thoughts we’ve repeated over and over until we’ve made them into personal truths. Every belief inevitably becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy.


When each of us realizes that we have the power to make an awesome difference in the world by unleashing our genius and assuming our greatness, humanity will evolve into a higher level of consciousness.


Get this book and read it every time you need to raise power!

Life Metaphors are healing metaphors delivered by the poet-healer of your
psyche, by the sacred consciousness of life, directly to you. They guide
you, answer your questions and direct your powers to heal and manifest.
They show up in the form of dreams, in situations that are Sacred Mirrors
and in striking metaphors, like a piece of gum stuck to your sole that reveals an attachment stuck to your soul.

Inspirational Book Excerpt


“At different times in my life, I am a physician, a teacher, a friend and an
author, but being a dreamer is what I value the most.


Whatever I am doing, I always hear my dreams echoing in a distant
underground chamber beneath my thoughts and feelings, attuned to the

rhythms of my body and the very substance of the earth. They are my

compass and my truth; they guide me and link me to the Divine. They call out
to me in an intimate whisper, always knowing how to find me. They

speak my real name.



From

Judy Orloff




Second Sight


For me, dreaming is a direct line to a place where magic abounds and nothing
is without meaning. It is a pristine state of awareness, unpolluted and
clear. Direct guidance for healing lies in our dreams, the natural territory
of intuition. Here, time and space are non-existent and anything is
possible. Like a blank, white canvas, our dream world is a  spacious
medium where intuition can freely express itself. We have only to listen.


You are in partnership with your dreams. Initiate an ongoing dialogue with
them. It’s like consulting the wisest doctor you can imagine who knows you
inside out. You can ask your dreams anything. No question is trivial if it
is meaningful to you. Expect answers. Some will be direct. Others may
require interpretation.


Your dreams can reveal many truths about your life. They can provide
extraordinary intuitive insights, and give you information that can help
your health, love life and career. You’d be surprised at the straightforward
advice that your dreams give, either spontaneously or on request. “

Second Sight

An Intuitive Psychiatrist Tells

Her Extraordinary Story

and Shows You How To Tap Your Own Inner Wisdom

Second Sight is part memoir, part how-to. This book
explores the practical uses of intuition and strategies for everyone to
develop it, drawing on Dr. Orloff’s own experiences and those of her
patients.

Book Reviews

“Orloff tried to stave her intuitions off during medical
school until she found herself ‘trapped’ in a profession that was itself
dependent on dispensing drugs to silence the spirit ~To listen only to the
mind and not the soul is, Orloff believes, a form of insanity.”

—San Francisco Chronicle

“An exemplary and eloquently written story that makes it easy for
nonbelievers in intuition to believe. You must read this book.”

—Psychology Today

“Fascinating ~Dr. Orloff writes with wisdom and humility about her emergence
as a physician with extraordinary abilities. Highly recommended.”

—Dean Ornish, M.D.,

Author,

Dr. Dean Ornish’s Program for Reversing Heart Disease

“We are far more than we have allowed ourselves to be. Judith Orloff is to
be commended for helping us understand that simple truth.”

—Louise Hay,

Author of You Can Heal Your Life

“Second Sight reads like a thriller. It is a page turner: inspiring,
controversial. This pioneering book shares the struggles and well-won
successes of a courageous physician who fights against a skeptical medical
system to validate the power of intuition. You will find a new friend in
Judith as her writing style is as intimate as if she was talking to you in
her living room.”
