Virtual Book Tour Week Three

Yvonne Perry here with a note to let you know how things went during the second and third week on my virtual tour for Whose Stuff Is This? Finding Freedom from the Thoughts, Feelings, and Energy of Those Around You. I am enjoying the interaction with readers from all over the world as I travel from one blog to the next sharing information about my journey as an empathic healer. I hope you will join us on this fun adventure.

Here is a list of the places I stopped on my virtual tour during week two:

  • Monday, March 7 - Writers will appreciate the information about the "Big Six" publishing houses, the book industry's primary printer Lightning Source, and why I chose to use CreateSpace to publish my book. Learn more on Doreen Pendgracs's blog:
  • Tuesday, March 8 - There are many easy and effective ways to control and eliminate detrimental energy and entities that may have entered your field during your workday.  I give one as an example on Nickolove Lovemore's Skyline Coaching Blog . She also offered a video clip, an excerpt from the book, an article "Clearing Your Energy Field," and a book review.
  • Wednesday, March 9 - Callie Carling shared a video, book review, and article about ways to identify and distinguish your own energy from that of another person. See her blog, Empowered Healer, at . Here is an excerpt from her book review: It was a huge relief to read through Yvonne's wonderful book "Whose Stuff Is This?", nodding vigorously and shedding a few tears as she bravely shared her story . . . it was just SO nice to realise that being an empath is a true gift and there ARE ways to use this amazing natural ability for good effect without being a risk to our own emotional and mental wellbeing.
  • Thursday, March 10 - If you don't know why your mood suddenly changes from light and happy to sad when there is no reason to be sad, you don't want to miss this informative interview on what it's like to be an untrained empath. Join me and Irene Conlan as we discuss what it means to be an empath in today's world. We explore how to know if you are empathic and how you can protect yourself from being drained by other people's thoughts and energy. Listen to The Self Improvement Radio Show.
  • Friday, March 11 - Psychologist, Dr. Caron Goode, shared parenting tips for empathic moms and how/why we pick up so much intuitive information from our children. There's also an interview about my writing process that will interest writers and authors, who are trying to decide if writing a book is worth the effort. See Caron's blog at
  • Saturday, March 12 - Why do caregivers burn out? Why do doctors and therapists prescribe drugs for a condition they do not recognize as empathy fatigue? Dr. Goode gives the perfect description of how an empathic person such as a healer or counselor picks up the energy of the clients they care for. Your body and mind can tell you when the session has gone on long enough and needs to end. An empath must care for her own self when trying to help others. Hear Dr. Caron Goode and Shelagh Jones' interview about the psychology of empathy. See Spiritus blog.
Week three of my virtual blog tour for my new book, Whose Stuff Is This? Finding Freedom from the Thoughts, Feelings, and Energy of Those Around You, is now history. I visited five more blogs and presented all new material that I believe you writers and creative types will appreciate. Here are the links to the blogs in case you want to catch up on your reading and listening.

Monday, March 14 - An empath is a "feeler," and we usually know when we've reached our limit. If the emotional burden of another person or situation becomes too great, we can pull away without being hateful, angry, or upset. It is an essential act of self preservation that must be utilized. Soulmate Coach Crystal shared more in an article that gives examples on how empaths can detach politely before becoming overwhelmed by a situation or person's energy.
Tuesday, March 15 - What inspired you to write this book? When did you first consider yourself a writer? Do you write full-time? If so, what's your work day like? If not, what do you do other than write and how do you find time to write?" These are some of the questions Lisa Jackson asked me to answer in our interview. Go to and find out what my most interesting writing quirk is!

Wednesday, March 16 - Emotions such as fear, anger, and frustration are energies. Like a virus, energy-sensitive people can potentially "catch" them from people without realizing it. Empathic people can be psychic sponges that absorb energy everywhere they go. Pat Bertram shared an article, " Stories from an Empath," on Dragon My Feet:
Thursday, March 17 - Babies absorb the mental and emotional energy of the people around them. They don't filter anything; they simply receive. As a child ages, this empathic tendency may increase and get out of control. Some children pick up the emotions, energy, or thoughts of others to the degree that it becomes overwhelming and interrupts the development of their social and emotional life. Read the article Elizabeth Bennett posted: "Empathy in Children and Teens" on
"I truly love this book by Yvonne Perry and wish someone had written it years ago when I was in my mid-20s and early 30s when I found myself taking on the burdens of so many of those around me," says Barbara Techel. "This book has reaffirmed that there is nothing wrong with me. Chapter 9 is my favorite because it is filled with wonderful advice to help empaths protect their energy. I'm so thankful to Yvonne for writing this book! Barbara shared a YouTube video about how having too much empathy can drain an energy-sensitive person.

Friday, March 18 - Are you sensitive to the events that are occurring in the world today? Do graphic and violent movies or TV shows impact you negatively? Do you become exhausted simply dealing with the events affecting individuals around you, whether you know them or not?  You may be an empath! Find out in Barbara Joye's interview on Creative Cafe Radio Show: In this show, The Angelic Realm addresses the challenges of being an empath in this time in history.
