Clairsentience is the psychic or intuitive ability of clear feeling. It’s the ability to feel that which isn’t seen.
This could be the emotions of others, this could be the thoughts and intentions of others, this could be the physical pain of others, and it could also be the presence of dead people.
All of these things have energy, and what it boils down to is that clairsentience is the ability to clearly feel energy.
Emotions have energy, thoughts have energy, intentions have energy, pain carries with it an energy, and you guessed it, dead people are made of energy, too.
The ability to feel ANY energy is clairsentience. This is naturally, inherently, the first and strongest ability in someone that is a healer, whether they know it or not.
Clairsentience is your ability to feel what isn’t normally seen and, if you can describe what it feels like, you can put words and sensations to it.
While intangible, our thoughts, emotions, intentions, and feelings of pains do carry with them an energy. A vibration. A molecular presence, even if this is just as a nerve impulse traveling down a neuron to deliver a signal. This nerve impulse is delivering a specific type of signal to deliver a specific type of message.
There are differences, sure, on how that energy is composed to create a certain thought, feeling, emotion, intention or physical sensation of pain - and a clairsentient individual often has the ability to feel the differences.
Sometimes not, though, because when you're clairsentient and don't know it, it pretty much can just feel like a LOT of energy and overwhelm. For me, it feels like anxiety and panic attacks.
When taken together, whole thoughts, whole emotional responses, and entire beings in spirit are comprised of an energetic vibration or field.
The energy of a thought, an emotion, a physical sensation, or a person in spirit is what the clairsentient individual has the capacity to feel. Anything that is made of energy, which is everything, can be felt by someone who is clairsentient.
But, when the ability to feel energy of all things first arises and starts to become stronger, it most often displays with the individual “feeling too much.” Being an over-feeler, or over emotional. Being an empath.
If the ability for clairsentience goes unrecognized for long enough, it can also be given other names for overstimulation or over-feeling. Many common mood disorders and the emotional symptoms of them can be the result of this over energetic stimulation (not always, of course, but for a lot of healers this is the case.)
When you are clairsentient, and don't know it, and haven't set up your boundaries, you are practically accepting and sensing the energy of everyone and everything in your environment, near and far, living and dead, at all times.
You have the ability to clearly feel energy. Be it in the form of emotions, thoughts, feelings, and intentions of individuals currently living a physical existence, or emotions, thoughts, feelings, intentions, and presence of those that are NOT currently living a physical existence - those in spirit.
If you’re sensing those in spirit, typically, feelings of anxiety are produced because they take an existence that is more gaseous, with diffuse, higher vibrating molecules. This higher, more intense vibration can create feelings of anxiety.
However, in crowds and tense places like shopping areas, worry and anxiety from other patrons and living people can also produce feelings of anxiety in the clairsentient individual. (This is true for me!)
Clairsentience is not a bad thing and it's not a curse, but if this is your gift, you probably do need to learn how to manage your energy. Grounding, clearing, setting up your boundaries, etc.
Clairsentience can be managed and transformed into a usable healing gift. By being able to sense energy, you can fine tune that skill to help others transform and manage energy and also to help others with their own gifts.
To begin working with clairsentience, the first step is noticing. Identifying your mood changes and keeping a log of how your mood and physical feeling changed depending on time of day and circumstances.
- Were you driving during rush hour, and later found yourself irritable and angry when you weren't before?
- Were you in a crowded store at dinnertime in line with frazzled customers when you started to feel anxious, too?
- Does your child go to school for many hours in a confined, overstimulating environment with other children and has trouble staying focused and becomes emotionally overwhelmed?
