I've been an empath for as long as I can remember and I've lived my life,well, not always in fear, but mostly in depression.
This book changed my life...and I DON'T always subscribe to things thatclaim to immediately change my life, unless I've tested them...because I'min the health field myself, and quite cynical by nature.
Dr. Mesich shows gives practical, uplifting and empowering advice on howto develop the skills necessary to bring about
peace of mind based on learning how to shut off your brain to
incomingmessages that, can quite literally, change your normal
happy outlook into a pessimistic take on the world and all of its
attendant ills. I URGE highly, all those who believe that they aresensitive, who don't understand why their moods swing from up to downwithin an instant, when there is no reason, and those
who believe that aromatherapy in its most beneficial form could
be the answer to moodswings, depression without clearcut cause,
and totally surprising tears or feelings of dread, doom, and death, toread this book, and to understand what I FINALLY know
consciously...that the down feelings and blues happen at times,
but to have such precipitous drops in moods, or feelings, means
that these feelings AREN'T yours...they belong to someone else.
ONCE you understand and KNOW that, your life will change.

I discovered that I was a sensitive a few years ago though reading about it in a magazine, since then I've accepted it and have resented it at the same time, I found this book by accident but thank goodness I did, the authors childhood story's sounded like I had written them, that itself gave me peace of mind that I was a fruit loop! I have been very stressed due to work changes and this book really helped, I've just started to take my flower essences so I can't say how successful they are, I'm also starting my meditations, I'm feeling very positive, I can't wait to start living my life with my emotions and not have to cope with everyone else's
Thank you thank you thank you Kyra Mesish (I shall be recommending your book to my sensitive friends)

I do not recommend this book for someone who is looking to further their understanding of their sensitivity with regards to their physical health. I expected to find ideas about diet, exercise, relaxation techniques, how to avoid overstimulation, etc, but the book focuses on issues like "understanding empathy", and using aromatherapy. This is NOT what I needed or wanted, and I was not impressed that she was an expert on this subject. I think that her advice might work for some, but it is a very "airy-fairy" approach to health, which is a big issue for most sensitive people that I know. I had hoped for practical, holistic, alternative ideas to help my body with its sensitivity issues, but this book is very thin on useful information (and not a very big book, I might add). Save your money, look elsewhere (such as books by Elaine Aron).

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, it answered a lot of questions for me and a lot of things actually make sense to me now. You just assume growing up, that there's something a little wrong with you and you're just a little different from everyone else, now I understand more it definitely helps.
