Brilliantly simple, incredibly inspiring and profoundly effective

Kathryn Peters-Brinkley
“As I read through the pages of Dave Markowitz's, Self-Care for the Self-Aware, my heart opened wide because it felt as if he'd written this treasured little book just for me! Learning how to use my empathic abilities as a gift is something I have struggled with all my life. But my struggle is over now; what Dave Markowitz offers is the gift of absolute scripture, for those of us who are empaths. It is

An essential guide for intuitives and energy healers

Vicky Thompson
Self-Care for the Self-Aware addresses a hidden issue that can affect the health and well-being of intuitives and energy healers: residual energy taken on from others, resulting in illness and emotional pain for the empathic healer. With their openness to the feelings and energy of others, empaths and energy healers can be prone to being emotional sponges, soaking up the pain of clients, friends and

Every page is rich in fact and wisdom

Angela Delglyn
“I have to say I love the book - it's succinct and contains only what it needs without the waffle (it will be a model for mine!). Not to mention it’s so good to have the empath stuff affirmed all in one place - every page is rich in fact and wisdom. So, I guess I want to say a very big thank you for getting this book out there and I will be recommending it to any other empaths I come along.

Not only for empaths, but for the broader public as well

Brian Kruse
“Full disclosure: I know Dave in the real world. What I didn't know was what's in the book. Dave's a straight shooting, New Yorker talker, no nonsense, straight logical type of guy. He didn't decide to write this book, the book decided on Dave to write it. I think one of the hardest things for Dave to do was to come from his past "regular" guy appearance to that of Healer.

I felt so light in my body and wanted to DANCE!

“Who could have known that a few words from you on the other side of the world would change my life?

I tried ‘Return to Sender’ and immediately felt an extreme anger in my head, anger, panic, like I was trapped, like I was angry at people and wanted to break free, mixed with a feeling of sadness. I asked whose it was: My mother's feelings. I have had this feeling, as long as I can remember, that

Shifts in my body while simply reading the words!

Tara Bell
“After listening to an interview with Dave Markowitz, I felt strongly compelled to read this amazing book. When he mentioned getting drunk on water simply because he was hanging out with drunk people, my ears pricked up! Because that has happened to me too! I thought ‘Thank goodness I'm not crazy! I'm just sensitive.’ I’m not generally an avid reader. I’m a strictly power of now girl! But something

Essential for processing emotions and navigating through life with more ease, peace, and joy

“Reading Dave's book feels like having a wise teacher or trusted friend who cares about your well-being take the time to compassionately explain concepts and tools. Instead of just stating "don't do this," he delves deep into the implications and dangers of certain well intended or unconscious actions. For example, I had heard in the past that you shouldn't take responsibility for someone else’s

5.0 out of 5 stars You may be an emotional sponge – of other people’s emotions!
Joyce Shafer

What if the health imbalance in your body—wait for it—isn’t really yours, including Chronic Fatigue Syndrome or another immune system matter, and more? What if most of the anger and or depression you feel isn’t really yours either? What the heck am I talking about, you ask?

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly Unique and Insightful
“Dave is a gifted "healer" and writer...and writes from his own experiences. I had read Dave's other book, Healing With Source, and when I saw this book come out, Self-Care for the Self-Aware, I knew I had to get it. Compared to other emotional/spiritually-based self-care books, it's a quick read with easy-to-understand concepts. If you are an "empath" yourself, or find
