Are You an Intuitive Feeler or Empath? Quiz

Are You an Intuitive Feeler or Empath? Quiz

Intuition is the birthright of every human being, but we each have different “channels” that receive guidance more strongly or clearly than others. One of the most primal of the intuitive channels is that of the healer/empath.

Take this simple, fun quiz and find out if you could have empathic abilities.

1. Can you often sense how other people are feeling?

2. DO you ever “feel” the atmosphere in a room when you walk into it?

3. Do you often get goosebumps or other physical signs when you sense something is true or significant for you?

4. Can you instinctively feel when someone isnít safe or okay for you?

5. Have you ever literally felt anotherís pain or symptoms?

6. Do you ever get “gut feelings”?

If you answered “yes” to three or more of these questions, you may have empathic abilities. Be alert to those messages from your deepest belly-knowing “gut!”
