You were born with intuitive gifts. These gifts stayed with you through childhood and are with you now. For most of us, these gifts shut down between the ages of 15 and 20 so we can focus on developing our brains and bodies. This is the time when we learn to become adults.
Some of us keep these gifts open throughout adolescence even though they are not traditionally known as the “norm,” especially in western cultures. The beauty with intuitive gifts is that even after they’ve been hidden and pushed aside, you can re-open and nurture them.
Clairsentience is easily the most underestimated intuitive gift. It is the ability to sense the emotions and feelings of animals, spirits, people, and the places around them. This gift allows you to strongly feel the emotions of others in your heart and in your physical self. When this gift is active, you will probably feel spirits around you. Does this resonate with you? If you have identified yourself as an empath then this should sound familiar to you.
Everyone’s intuitive gifts are different, so don’t feel like you have to fit into a mold. Below are some guiding questions that will help you identify whether or not you are clairsentient. If you don’t identify with one or another, that doesn’t mean you aren’t clairsentient. See if you can answer “Yes” to any of the following questions:
- Are you highly sensitive to your surroundings? Can you easily pick up on the “vibe” of a person or place?
- Do you have unexplainable emotional or physical reactions when you are in a large crowd? Do you have anxiety when you go out in public because you know you will be overwhelmed with sensations
- When you are around other people, do your emotions start to change for no reason?
- Can you empathize easily with others? Do you know what other people are feeling without them ever speaking?
- Do you feel the presence of energies or spirits? Do you see things out of the corner of your eye and think you may be making it up?
- Do you feel other people’s pain, right down to the place on their body?
- When speaking with others, do you find yourself beginning sentences with the phrase, “I feel . . .”?
Can you smell or taste hints when spirits are around?
Being clairsentient means you can clearly sense energy from beyond the physical realm. This gift allows you to bridge the gap between the physical world and the spirit realm. Having the ability to tune into the energy of places, situations, people, and spirits can protect you. It will also let you pass on messages from beyond.
When clairsentience kicks in, you know through your heart and energy body what is to be perceived and understood. Clairsentience is sometimes confused with intuition or is written off as a “hunch” but it’s distinctly different. Clairsentience is a distinct awareness that you can practice, hone, and use to your benefit. It will help you find your way along your path and discover the gifts that you can share with the world!
