Title: Second Sight


Title: Second Sight

Author: Dr. Judith Orloff

Publisher: Three Rivers Press

 

 

   The soft, laughter-inflected voice of psychiatrist Dr. Judith Orloff narrates her autobiography. It keeps readers glued to the pages describing Orloff’s formerly tumultuous life as an adolescent intuitive – a correct observer of human emotions – then catches up with her highly respected present.

 

   Dr. Orloff’s parents, both medical professionals in a family filled with others, had a unique strain on their efforts to groom their child into becoming a productive, socially accepted adult. Daughter Judith had a knack for correctly discerning who of her parents’ friends would commit suicide; lose a political election and more. Conservative leanings offended and confused, the Drs. Orloff wondered what to make of their startling, mysterious child.

 

   Frightened by her psychic insights, an adolescent Judith delved into risky behaviors to hide from the spiritual gifts she didn’t know how to control. Her parents temporarily committed her to a mental health facility, hoping for a cure of their frenetic child. When at last Judith meets a psychic researcher, life changes for the entire family. “Judi,” as her friends then called her, learns to pray and to meditate under careful guidance, focusing her energies in an entirely positive direction.

 

   She also learns how to direct her intuitive abilities to serve humanity with emotional and physical healing. There’s another achievement to note in the book: a riveting account of how a board-certified Dr. Orloff coped with a medical system skeptical of her ethereal healing arts. That’s a valuable education all its own.

 

   The California-based psychotherapist comes full circle in her life story, literally getting the keys to the psychiatric institution that once housed her as a teen taking life-threatening risks. She becomes a respected psychotherapist and trusted intuitive who improves and saves lives.

 

   The full title of the book is Second Sight: An Intuitive Psychiatrist Tells Her Extraordinary Story and Shows You How to Tap Your Own Inner Wisdom. Intuitives searching for good direction can read it to learn how to handle critics gracefully. Dr. Orloff explains how she survived the shock of learning what her mother had tried to conceal: a family trait for intuitive healing ability that had earned the scorn of “Witch!”-screaming neighbors in a past generation.

 

   Watch the excitement and happiness build as the budding psychiatrist Dr. Judith Orloff embraces her fond family and its story with love, growing into her strengths with confidence. Learn to become your own healer with her “Six Ways to Access Your Inner Doctor.”

 

   An interesting, educational read for laymen, medical and mental health professionals, Second Sight can bring great insight into many lives. The 359-page paperback is a newly-released updated edition of its predecessor.

Breathe deeply. You’ll need maximum physical and spiritual power to absorb the uplifting lessons in this book.

Most of the No-Potato Passover recipes are as casual as the title’s spelling: some include only six ingredients and limited prep time – half to one full hour. They’re good for heart health and waistlines, too.

The Hebrew-English haggada provides a wealth of photographic evidence of the lives led by Ethiopian Jews. The pottery, the unembellished homes, school, and synagogues, the gaunt Jews in modest clothing and head coverings portray dedication to Torah values despite harsh political and topographical conditions.
