Large crowds make you nervous. You avoid black Friday like the plague. You get vibes from people. People tell you “stop being so sensitive”. Sound familiar? First of all, tell them you’re normal as hell, then tell them you’re clairsentient. Clairsentience, or clear feeling, is the ability to sense information that is otherwise unattainable through your other five senses. If you’ve ever had a hunch, a notion, an inkling or a gut feeling, then congratulations! You’ve probably experienced clairsentience. But how can you be sure, and how you can develop this skill?
You’re probably clairsentient if…
- Anything has ever felt “off” or felt “right” to you.
- You become anxious in crowds
- You’ve walked into a place feeling one way and left feeling another way for no reason you can pinpoint.
- You’ve ever suddenly felt nervous/sad/happy/etc. and did not know why.
- You’ve ever read the “vibe” of a person, place or thing (you know, a noun)
- You’re a member of the human species.
Yes, like every other “clair” discussed in this series, you are born with the innate ability to feel your way through any situation. Why do you think the term “gut instinct” is so popular? In fact, having a developed sense of clairsentience is an essential part of deliberate manifestation. It’s a matter of openness and connecting to your… and here’s the million dollar word folks…. emotions.
How to develop your clairsentience
That’s right. You need to connect to how you feel in order to have the ability to analyze anything using that system. Working against you is the society we live in that favors logic and replicated data. Emotions are seen as illogical at best and a sign of weakness at worst. Men especially are socialized to mask their emotions, especially feelings of sadness, uncertainty, and vulnerability. Luckily, it’s (usually) pretty simple to get back in touch with yourself:
- Be mindful in your actions. Pay attention to how you feel when you do anything. How do you feel as you drive to work? How do you feel as you’re watching your favorite show? How do you feel first thing in the morning?
- Acknowledge the feelings, but do not judge them. Your feelings are telling you something; they are the most basic form of communication between your body and your physical surroundings. Let your ego step aside and let them ride.
Think of this way: your emotions are like a map guide. The ultimate destination on that map is your life’s purpose. Think of your emotions as the guide telling how much closer or farther away you are from your ultimate goal. For those who have been conditioned not to feel, either by their elders or as a defense mechanism, you may need additional help. Please do not be afraid to seek it, you will only be enhancing your personal experience in this lifetime. During the darkest times in my life, I was terrified of my emotions but have now come to embrace them wholeheartedly.
- When you get a vibe from something, focus on it and see what messages it is giving you. How does it feel? Dark? Joyous? Present? Past? There are as many “vibes” as there are “things” in existence (for vibes are what they are). You’ll need to decode them and consult to your interpretations for future use. They can give you vague or pinpoint information depending on your sensitivity/development.
- If you’re unsure of your feelings, ask for a sign for validation. Make it specific yet believable.
- Get in touch with your spirit guides who are around to help.
- If you find you are especially sensitive, say, if you’re an empath, work on shielding energy from others and grounding.
Clairsentience in action
During a ghost tour (the same one from the article on clairaudience) our group was taken to a graveyard. No surprise there, right? But this graveyard had a dark history. It was a Native American children’s graveyard. It was the final resting place for children who had died from starvation, maltreatment, and illness while at the boarding school. In this school, children were taken away from their families, stripped of their native culture and made to become “acceptable members of society” via forced assimilation. You know, kill the Indian, save the man- that mentality.
When we’re at this graveyard we were told to take pictures to see if we could pick up on anything. The rule of thumb was to take pictures in series of three. That way, you can tell if there was any significant difference between the photos. I took a few, but mainly I felt very uncomfortable being there. Not in an “oh this is a spooky graveyard” kind of way, but in a “this is NOT a tourist attraction and we should NOT be here” kind of way. I remember standing in one specific spot and taking a picture. As I lifted my phone to take the image I could feel something standing right in my face and specifically on the other side of the fence. Yes, feelings can even tell you location. I took the photo, but I was so freaked out by the overwhelming feeling that as I took the second photo I jerked the camera and the second photo came out blurry. When I took at look at my first photo I saw what I was feeling! The location exactly matched what I felt. I didn’t know what it was then, I still don’t now, but feel free to take a look for yourself and figure it out!
