Empath Quiz

Erica suggested I take Anita Moorjani’s empath quiz. She wrote a book called “Dying to be Me,” about her healing experience.  The quiz is on her website.

My result was 25 yes answers out of 34.  It said:

You’re most definitely an empath. You’re pretty intuitive and can usually tell when people are lying. You may want to look into becoming an energy worker or healer, because this could be a natural gift for you. You prefer to be in nature and preferably around water. You particularly love to experience the healing properties of nature. You have a gift for influencing the moods, energies, atmospheres, and environments around you. You need to work on differentiating other people’s energy from your own. You may have a tendency to mirror other people and their energy.

Your score indicates that you would benefit from learning to run energy (flow energy throughout your body to release blocks); ground yourself (connect with the earth); and protect your aura (according to Merriam-Webster, “the energy field that emanates from all living beings”)—all of which I discuss further in my new book “Sensitive is the New Strong”. You love to help others, rescue others, and heal the world; however, you need to slow down and give to yourself before you do so! You would benefit from an energy healing yourself.

I only started wondering if I was picking up other people’s feelings when I started feeling a lot of fear at the start of the pandemic. I knew I wasn’t afraid of getting COVID. Being here at Kendal is about as safe as anyone could be, and I’m afraid I look forward to dying as a relief more than I look forward to going on living. It’s never been clear to me that I was feeling somebody else’s feelings, so I had to answer all the questions about that in the negative. If “don’t know” had been a possible answer, that’s how I would have answered.

This morning, I’m having a really bad time. Everything feels meaningless. What if this is someone else’s feeling and not mine at all? My heart goes out to her. “There, there dear, you are doing the best you can. It isn’t good enough according to people who don’t want to know you are suffering, and don’t want to be asked to help. But it’s absolutely OK according to Jesus, God, and the Universe.”
