Empath's Ultimate Guide To Shield Yourself From Negative Energies by Sandy Quinn is a cheerfully written book about how to protect yourself emotionally if you are a sensitive person. While being sensitive is often viewed as a positive trait, sensitivity can open you up to all sorts of negative influences in your life. For example, other people's emotions can bring you down even if you are normally a happy person. Sandy Quinn gives strategies to overcome these effects. The strategies she uses, however, are often of the new age variety. Not all readers will agree with this viewpoint. While acting in a positive manner yourself can keep you uplifted and uplift others as well, carrying a crystal or other stone may or may not have any effect for you.
Chapters include information about the highly sensitive person, and about energy vampires. These two categories of person are amusing to read about to some, however, both are entirely real. The highly sensitive person may tend to be reclusive because noise and stimulation may bother them severely. Energy vampires are people who can drain you emotionally. For instance they may go on and on about their problems, not seeming to care whether you have problems of your own or whether you care to hear about theirs. Have you ever had the experience of being around someone and when they leave you realize you have developed a headache or a feeling of fatigue? This is the work of an energy vampire. Sandy Quinn has covered most of the usual bases in her book, Empath's Ultimate Guide to Shield Yourself from Negative Energies. People who like to control their destiny will enjoy this book.
