Some people are “feelers” in the prophetic. We feel people’s pain, joy, excitement, or other emotion. We feel things from the heart of God. Some people are “seers. We see in pictures and have dreams. We live a life of metaphor and symbolism. Some people are “Hearers”. Sometimes we can move in all three. It is a good thing not to get locked into one methodology. Try to have a varety of ways to receive and deliver prophetic words. After all, God himself is full of infinite variety.
