I am one of those empaths that have felt the world around me since I was very small. It was unnerving on some level, feeling things I know I wasn't feeling myself. Feeling like I 'just knew', what was going on with my loved ones. Sometimes even the passing stranger if they were feeling their emotions extremely strongly. This was a great guide to confirm a) what I already knew, and b) what to do about it. I have not learned (yet) how to put up the shield to protect myself from other's emotions.
Which is definitely why I prefer the company of animals. They only feel one thing at a time, it's just easier to be around them.
Definitely a good book if you find yourself feeling "overly emotional" without knowing why, and what to do about it. How to identify it, and what to possibly avoid. *or if you know an empath, how to understand them a little better*
Although I would prefer to call myself "sensitive" than "delicate". But that's just a personal word preference.


Christina's narration, is perfect for an empath listener. She doesn't ask anything of you but to relax and listen. She speaks with compassion in her voice that allows you to absorb the words to understand without an agenda. To listen to a voice that gives an empath peace is a rare gem, a unique power. She has a smooth, attractive voice, that makes you want to listen to the message, which makes it easier to ingest that message.

I recommend this audio book for the content of the book if you have any questions about empathy, and the narrator to consume the information comfortably.

An extraordinary book giving you the insight of Reiki for those who have no experience, and even giving a new perception if already familiar. Easy to follow, engaging, and insightful.

Christina's narration proves, as always, there is energy everywhere. Extending beyond just the words she speaks. Her voice serves as an energy exchange with the listeners. In essence, this book with her vocals triggers a form of healing. Sincere, curious, and confident are only some of the ways to describe her gifted ability.

Recommend this book, especially the audio book, as a stepping stone if you are interested in learning Reiki. It would be beneficial even to those who have already started their journey.

"Just for today..." Learn and be open.

A beautiful book, inspirational and yet in some ways poignant. You feel what Esmie says, from her experiences and reflection. To help you motivate you on your own story and whatever may be holding you back from being your best you. You can break free. If you want it. And you will.

Christina's read gives it the tone that encourages you, using Esmie's words. You want to do better, be better. I recommend this if you are struggling with any challenges. It definitely helped me. Christina's voice made me feel safe in reflecting on my own life as Esmie has urged. I feel I am ready to take the next steps. I have cheerleaders. In Esmie and Christina. I can do it. You can too.

Always a unique perspective with For Beginners books. Extremely comprehensive and detailed. Been studying and using the chakras, along with yoga and meditation for years and I definitely learned new things. Christina’s narration is spot on. Her clear but gentle vocals guide you to a meditative place that really emphasizes the peacefulness of the topic of reconnecting with the Self. Highly recommend this book, as well as Christina’s talented ability to take you through this journey. Thank you!
