I adored this book!
It had a really good balance of illustrations and colour as well as super useful information.
There was tons of useful information in this book - but not so much that it was hard to follow or overwhelming.
I was lucky enough to receive an early review copy in exchange for an honest review - but I have preordered the hard copy for when it's released.
Really really recommend!
This book was really interesting. As an empath, it was really great to relate to it. I also enjoyed the resources and methods for strengthening intuition.
This is an insightful book for a very niche audience. I am not an empath but decided to read it as a close friend is a 'highly sensitive person' and I wanted insights into how she may possibly be seeing and experiencing the world. The book introduces the concept of an empath and walks the reader through the various struggles and issues that empaths face in daily life. The book also provides ideas and exercises for building mental resilience and setting up boundaries - I feel that this is relevant for just about everyone in the current times.
For me, as a non-empath, the chapter on 'Nurturing Your Energy' was the most interesting (and useful). The author includes self-care rituals such as meditation, journaling and exercise that I plan to incorporate in my daily life.
As the author herself is one, there are examples throughout the book about her life and what she went through to reach a deep understanding about herself. This will help to connect other readers who are empaths with the author as well as the book.
A beautiful look though how to utilize your inner light in life and how to make your life brighter. Pun intended. Journal prompts to guide you through the seasons. I felt like this book SPOKE to me. I always felt I was an empath. This book validated and walked me through how to get though it. Highly recommend. Especially loved the reflection to true life to humanize my feelings and relate. I received an advance review copy for free, and I am leaving this review voluntarily.
The Healed Empath is a great book to give a better understanding of empaths and ways that can help you cope and better deal with the difficulties that come with being an empath.
I've never been sure if I'd class myself as an empath but I found the book very interesting and helpful regardless. It's nice to read something that at times is very relatable and the way everything is explained and each of the tips are described makes it an easy read and one that would be helpful for an empath or even for someone who knows an empath to give a better understanding.
The book is split into different sections which make it easy to find what you're looking for in the book if you wanted a quick look and the way it's laid out is lovely with pretty coloured pages separating each chapter and a line picture every now and then which gives it a nice look. I found the section on intuition particularly interesting and I like how it gives you tips to improve intuition which I'll definitely have a go at.
This is a great book that is very useful to understand empaths and helps by suggesting some tips to try to improve your life and have a better understanding of why you feel the way you do.
I enjoyed this and have read a few books about being an empath and how to manage it amongst the world.
I appreciate the illustrations and exercises. This is definitely a book I would refer back to and work my way through a couple times - as it's titled it is a guide and it really is there to guide you through.
While I agree with much of the content, I don't feel like it would be frequently utilized often within my small community library, if at all. I found it very interesting the way the author chose to draw a line in the sand between HSP (highly sensitive people) and empaths. I have been called both in this lifetime. So again, there's gold within, but it feels elitist even for a very specialized niche book in nonfiction.
I think this book is a great start for anyone who may believe they are an empath. It covers the foundation, definition, types, and actions pretty fairly. As someone who has been in her Spiritual Journey and aware of her empathic abilities for years, I didn’t learn much, but I did like and agree with everything that was covered.
I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
This was an easy, quick read with quite a few pearls of wisdom for me personally. I found the format approachable and the style easy to follow. The chapters were organised well. I liked the exercises included.
I did learn quite a bit about being an empath and about the positives and negatives of it. I found myself recognizing some of the examples and found they resonated with my own past experiences.
Overall very informative. I think I would have liked more on the day to day struggle of an empath and even more depth to boundaries and interactions with family members, but I think this is a very useful, empowering, informative, positive book.
I strongly recommend it.
My thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this digital ARC. This is my honest review.
The Healed Empath by Kristen Schwartz is a great book for anyone who is interested in learning more about themselves. Would you consider yourself a sensitive person? Do you feel things deeply, even things that dont affect you? Do you get overwhelmed at social events and need lots of alone time to recharge? Do you feel weighed down by emotions of other people who are suffering? Do you prioritize others' wellness over your own? If you think this sounds like you, you need this book. It covers everything from self-awareness and intuition to trauma and boundaries, and teaches you how to nurture your energy and step into your power. It is also full of beautiful calming illustrations and inspiring quotes. Thank you to NetGalley for giving me a free digital Advanced Reading Copy (ARC e-book) of this title. I really enjoyed it!
As an empath, this book was very helpful. The book itself was beautifully colored and adorned.
Reading the book, I saw myself. I saw myself as more than just an empath, but a tired, ragged empath. I had never taken the time to look at myself and heal until reading this book. The author describes ways for us empaths to heal, to take care of our souls and emotions when other people try to take over. I liked the quizzes and checklist that helped clear me to understand just what I needed.
I would recommend this book for any empath whether they think they need healing or not.
This was a very insightful book. Easily approachable, engaging, thought provoking and ultimately kind. There was much I found very relatable here and the easy manner of the writing felt conversational. I found it helpful and interesting. There are lessons and useful advice to be found in it.
