Ask Dr. Orloff

Is there a difference between intuition and being an empath?

Question: Dr. Orloff,
I thought for years I was just highly intuitive. But after reading your site, I realized that I am an empath and my life makes more sense. What is the difference between being intuitive and empathetic?
Thanks,
Marie


Answer: Dear Marie,
I'm glad you're enjoying my website. Being intuitive means that you are open to non-linear knowledge that comes through gut feelings, ah-ha moments, knowings, sensing energy, and dreams. Intuitive empathy is a form of intuition in which you literally sense and absorb energy and information into your own body from other people. People can have intuition without being an empath. The section in Emotional Freedom on empaths also describes techniques to learn to deal with empathy in a positive way so you aren't drained by it.
Best,
Dr. Orloff
