SECOND SIGHT by Dr. Judith Orloff

"We are far more than we allow ourselves to be. 'Second Sight' helps you understand this." ---Louise Hay

I am so excited to introduce you , (if you do not already know her), to author Dr. Judith Orloff. I had the amazing opportunity to interview Dr. Judith several times on my national radio show, and she was a huge hit with our audience!

My talented and daring colleague Judith Orloff, MD - a UCLA psychiatrist, intuitive healer, and New York Times best-selling author – is a pioneer who bridges mainstream medicine with intuition, energy medicine, and spirituality.

Her ability to use her own highly developed intuitive skills, which she tells us about in her first book. With her training as a psychiatrist, gives her insight into the functioning, reasoning and acting of human beings like you and me in a totally unique way.

I know you will love her new book too, Second Sight, and I highly recommend that you read it as a better way to understand yourself, as well as others. I highly , highly, endorse her work to my life coaching clients, as I have received such great benefits from her work.

Dr. Orloff celebrates the exciting launch of her new book “Second Sight: An Intuitive Psychiatrist Tells Her Extraordinary Story and Shows You How To Tap Your Own Inner Wisdom.” A riveting story of Dr. Orloff's exile between two worlds—intuition and mainstream medicine—SECOND SIGHT reveals Dr. Orloff's journey from an intuitive child, alone with confusing abilities, to an esteemed intuitive psychiatrist who dares to come out of the “intuitive closet” to defy medical taboos. She also teaches you empowering, practical techniques to awaken you own intuitive powers to transform your health and life! (This is the new Three Rivers Press edition.)

Today Dr. Orloff is treating you to an incredible book-launch, one-time offer with a special “Act On A Hunch” gift collection from herself, and friends Michael Beckwith, Dr. Daniel Amen, Shirley MacLaine and many more. Plus receive Judith's first lesson from her new "Emotional Vampire Course" from the Daily Om!

To purchase the book and receive your special gifts go to:


P.S. – Remember that the entire “Act On A Hunch” gift collection is yours absolutely FREE with your book order … but ONLY when you grab it before the cut-off. Don’t miss your chance!

Should we be friends with former lovers?

My client sits before me, quite proud of the fact that she has been deleting the emails from a former lover who has been reaching out as a friend to her. The relationship ended 3 years ago, and as a way to punish him, she has chosen to ignore him.

"He's the one who ended the relationship, so if he thinks I'm going to be a friend now, he's got another thing coming."

Do you agree with her stance?

Watch this brief video, and see how you feel.

If we really look at the motivation behind our actions, we can change all that we are, into love.

Love, slow down, share this video so that we can help others as well.

Peace, david

My Clients Walk into Sobriety: Step 1: Surrender

I'm so very excited to share with you one of my recent client's blog writing on her walk into sobriety.

From time to time, with her permission, I will share her writings, so that anyone thinking about living without alcohol, or any other substance, can hear firsthand what it is like.

Please enjoy, then feel free to share this with as many people as you would like. love, david


I have been working to uncover the denial and the belief of what I used to tell myself all the time: "everything is ok and I can handle it". I’ve been able to admit that I am powerless over alcohol and that my life was unmanageable. I knew I was powerless over alcohol because I would quit every morning and be drinking again by nightfall.

I wanted more
I became irrational
I couldn’t help myself

My life was unmanageable:

I drove drunk
Spent too much money
Gained weight
Lost energy and work time
Life was harder
Emotions built up

All sorts of resentments built up and lived under the surface for years, covered up, escaping my conscious thought but all the while hurting me. And now I’m dealing with all that.

I find my strength in recovery by being vulnerable and honest and doing something about these emotions and by releasing them. By talking, writing and going to God. God says thank you Angela for trusting me and coming to me. I will never leave you or forsake you. I’ll always be by your side. The other day I was so ashamed and guilty for so many things. The feelings came up and were with me for about 16 hours. I had to sit down and work to identify the feelings, sit with them, surrender to them and write them down. This is what is called walking into the fire.

In the fire, what I discovered by sitting with these feelings is that my deepest pain is my unworthiness. Unworthiness is a core issue for many people and is a driver for unhealthy behavior, thoughts and feelings. It is tied to low self esteem (check), wanting to be accepted (check) and trying hard to fit in (yep, that was me too). It’s also tied to a lack of spirituality and being disconnected from a Higher Power. I sat with this, talked about it, cried, reached out and prayed. And I inched a little closer toward worthiness through gratitude, self care, connection to others and God, forgiveness and prayer. I want to emphasize the importance of reaching out to others. If you’re like me and want to recover alone it will never work. One of the keys to admitting we are powerless and having a chance at true recovery is reaching out for help.

Thank you God and thank you all my friends and family who surround me with love and support every day.

With an open heart,
