A Test on Are you a Spiritual Person? 68 Qualities

68 Traits of Spiritual persons


Do you have a spiritual bent of mind? Many individuals have a natural spiritual mind but often do not understand it. Here is a list of qualities that one may observe in persons with a spiritual bent of mind. This is however not a comprehensive list but just some often seen indicators. Spiritual people are often very sensitive people. The test is divided into 4 parts starting from the basic to the advanced.
To take the test to decide if you are spiritual person, a simple answer of yes or no will indicate you spiritual quotient. Count the yeses from 1-48. A Yes count of 29 indicates you have a strong spiritual bent, while 38 and over indicate you are strongly spiritual, however this does not mean things cannot change. While your lack of interest in spiritual matters may not let you develop your spiritual potential and vice-versa. Interest in spiritual matters, having a good spiritual teacher and regular practice of spiritual techniques may help you to develop fast spiritually.

    Your extra sensory perception is developed; sometimes your senses give you an experience of something that is not felt by others. There are six extra sensory powers, five for each of your senses and the sixth for your mind. These are Clairolfaction (Clairolfactory or Clairaliance), Clairtastition (Clair-taste or Clairgustance), Clairtactition, Clairvoyance, Clairaudition (Clairaudience), and Claircognizance (also called Clairsentience). They sometimes work on their own and we as individuals experience them. For example we use phrases like ‘It leaves a bad taste in the mouth’ or ‘Smells Wrong’. This is often our extrasensory perception working. Some people actually experience this distinctly. These powers only indicate a spiritual potential or in some cases a spiritual fulfillment, however one may have these powers and yet not be really spiritual. If you say yes to one or more from numbers 49-54 you have spiritual potential and a spiritual bent, however, depending on whether or not you actually do some serious spiritual practices will be the outcome of your spiritual development.

When someone simply knows what will happen in the future (A premonition or a déjà vu), or what someone else is thinking about, or what is happening in another place or something similar like what disease another person is suffering with, etc. Have you ever had any such experience, especially repeatedly?
