Last month I was raving about Anita Moorjani's wonderful book for empaths, Sensitive is the New Strong. I plan to re-read it sometime very soon. Yes, it was that good, with plenty of useful information that goes far beyond the "surround yourself with a white bubble" advice that never really worked for me.
Although she gives part of her story in this book, I wanted to read her first book which details how she nearly died and had a near-death experience. If this interests you, I highly recommend this book, Dying to Be Me. What I most admired about her account is how she found the words to describe in detail what she experienced on the other side.
As her body lay dying, she reports that her spirit was able to travel to see the doctor speaking to her husband down the hallway from her hospital room, she was able to see doctors and nurses working on her body, and she was able to see her brother on an airplane flying to be with her. After that, her spirit went to another place where she met with her father and best friend, both of whom were already deceased.
Her description of that place, and her feelings about her own self, are beautiful and almost poetic. She reiterates again and again that her spirit is part of the One and that it is wonderous beyond all imagining. That is one of the main lessons from her experience there -- that her spirit is far greater, luminous, and magnificent than she ever dreamed. And that is her message to us all -- that we are beautiful, amazing beings of light and love. A fascinating book.
