Developing Your “Clair” Senses


Everyone is born with intuitive gifts. Yes, you have these abilities. Think about the time when you just “knew” something. You have no idea how you knew it, you just did. Or the time you smelled your Grandpa’s cologne near you but he had passed away years before. This happens when you are using one of your clair senses. The reality is you use these senses more than you realize. But, like many people, you may have discounted what you experienced as not being real. Don’t worry you are not alone. We’ve all done it. Just know these experiences are something everyone has gone through; they just need to be accepted as real.

You were born with at least four clair senses. For most people, one sense is stronger than the others. I am primarily a clairsentient. I just “feel” things emotionally and physically. I always have. Never knew there was a name for it until recently. Once I started Reiki, I began to experience the other clair senses as well. I think this is why after Joy and John died I went into clair-sensory overdrive. It was scary and thrilling at the same time.


Clairvoyance. This is also known as “clear seeing”. Clairvoyants see images in their minds. Sometimes it is a color, number or symbol. Clairvoyants use their third eye or fifth chakra. Ever visualized the color blue when you found out a friend is expecting a baby, only to find out months later the baby was a boy? If so, you were using your clairvoyance.

Clairaudience. This is also known as “clear hearing”. Clairaudients hear audible or telepathic messages. Sometimes it is in the form of music or sounds. Ever heard someone say, “listen to the little voice inside your head” when you are trying to make an important decision? Then you don’t and wish you had? Clairaudients listen to this “voice” all the time.

Claircognizance. This is also known as “clear knowing”. Claircognizants just know information they get is 100% accurate without knowing how or why. It’s also referred to as “inner knowing”. Ever experience knowing where your significant other left their keys? This is claircognizance.

Clairsentience. This is also known as “clear feeling”. Clairsentients have the ability to get messages through feelings, emotions or physical sensations. They are often referred to as “empaths”. Ever walk into a room and just feel the sadness coming from someone standing over in a corner? If you have, then you were using your clairsentience.

It’s important to understand the clair senses because these abilities may be more heightened when you are grieving.

Just don’t refute them. They can take you on an unbelievable journey!
