Clairsentient Traits: The Signs of Clear Feeling

I'm a professional tarot reader with 23 years of experience. For me, tarot is a fascinating system that reflects all human life.

You Might Be Clairsentient

Have you ever found yourself saying, “I don’t know how I knew... I just felt it"?

Almost everyone experiences that odd, clear feeling at one time or another.

  • You look at someone and you know, without doubt, they are lying.
  • Or you always feel disturbed when a certain personality appears on TV.
  • Or perhaps you hate walking into the heavy-feeling ambiance of a particular office, but love the light, restorative atmosphere in your best friend’s grandmother’s home.

It’s very likely you feel those things so clearly because you are clairsentient.

Anyone can be clairsentient

What Is Clairsentience?

Clairsentience is on the spectrum of psychic abilities. It is sometimes called "clear feeling" or "clear sensing." Often used interchangeably with claircognizance ("clear knowing"), it is the perception of information beyond that which you can physically see or hear. It differs from clairvoyance and clairaudience in that it is based on feelings, both at an emotional and physical level.

People who experience clairsentience are affected by a myriad of different influences, but it all comes down to being sensitive to changes in energy. These energy changes may be connected to human emotions, or they might be caused by some imperceptible atmospheric disturbance. In other words, the clairsentient is somewhat akin to a human barometer. It may happen all the time, or just occasionally. The more you recognize its occurrence, the more likely it will happen.

Empaths, those who experience other people’s emotions, may well be clairsentient or will become clairsentient over time.

How Clear Sensing Manifests in Daily Life

There are some jobs, professions, and situations where clairsentience is a great advantage. Think of any skill which is enhanced by instinct. Examples are:

  • Medical doctors who seem to have an uncanny ability to home in on the problem.
  • Likewise, spiritual healers who use their hands to feel the anomalies in someone’s energy field.
  • A detective whose ability to read people is well-developed.
  • Teachers who suspect what is going on in a child’s life without being told.
  • A parent who is in-tune with their baby’s needs.
  • A professional driver who has the gut feeling that he must avoid driving too close to that van, which suddenly swerves into the wrong lane.
  • A counselor or advisor who knows when to remain silent and when to encourage their client to share.
  • Writers, artists, songwriters, poets, and creative individuals sometimes feel their work flows through them instead of from them.

Signs You May Be Clairsentient

  • You were told, as a child, that you were ‘over-sensitive’.
  • You may feel overwhelmed by crowds and noise.
  • You sense the atmosphere of buildings, including homes and places of work.
  • You know things without being told.
  • You have heightened perception; you easily read between the lines when in conversations.
  • You sense undercurrents of emotion and seem to be able to intuit information from them.
  • You are empathic to the suffering of other people to the extent that their emotional and even physical pain affects you deeply.
  • Your intuition is becoming more than just a vague feeling.
  • You make emotional connections with certain people.
  • Your ‘knowing’ sometimes manifests as a physical sensation.
  • You are able to instantly form an impression about someone you just met.
  • Places and people that emanate ‘dark’ energy cause you to feel nauseous, dizzy, or deeply uncomfortable.
  • You experience physical signs, such as tingling anywhere in your body. When you remove yourself from the source, it stops.

When Clear Feeling Feels Bad

Occasionally, clairsentience seems to be a burden, not a gift. Some clairsentients sink into drug or alcohol abuse in the hope they can numb the sensations. Others withdraw into depression. Sometimes the constant bombardment of external energy drains and exhausts those who are sensitive. If this is you, then you must find techniques and methods of combating or managing clairsentience. It gets easier as you get older. When you learn where it’s coming from, you are able to either deal with it or shield yourself from it.

Despite how you might feel about it now, it really is a gift, and once you start believing in it, you will feel better. Nothing is going to hurt you; you are like a radio picking up a signal. When your radio picks up bad news, it doesn’t explode, does it? Instead of trying to avoid, or suppress, or deny the gift of clairsentience, continually ask the universe how you can use it for good.

It makes sense for psychics and sensitives to protect themselves from negative energy, which can get you down from time to time. I have written this article to help you maintain your balance and keep the nasties away: Psychic Protection: Tips and Techniques for Witches and Sensitives.

How to Cope With Clairsentience

Sensitivity at this level is sometimes mistaken for mental health problems. It is, of course, important to seek professional advice if you suspect you may have a mental health issue. Meanwhile, you might want to consider that what you think is in your head is actually a sensitivity to what is happening around you. Try any or all of the following:

  • Talk to others with similar experiences.
  • Express your feelings creatively.
  • Journal daily.
  • Meditate or listen to music.
  • Use your gifts to help others.
  • Channel your clairsentience into work you enjoy.
  • Read as much as you can about the phenomenon.

“Many evolved souls are ultra-sensitive to the point that they feel every nuance around them and therefore find it challenging to be around people except for a select chosen few…”

– Hunter, Kevin. A Beginner's Guide to the Four Psychic Clair Senses: Clairvoyance, Clairaudience, Claircognizance, Clairsentience Warrior of Light Press.

Try to discern if you are affected by others by paying attention to changes in atmosphere and energy levels when you come into contact with other people. Does your mood lift or sink? Do you experience physical sensations? Do seemingly random thoughts about the other person occur to you?

Be aware that no one will experience or feel what you are feeling. Clairsentience varies from person to person. It manifests in different ways. Yet there are many people who can confirm similar episodes, so it makes sense to seek out other clairsentients either locally or in online forums.

Questions & Answers

Question: Today I have just come upon this word Clairsentient when searching "The Universe is speaking to me." I have ALL of these symptoms and signs listed here. I have been told I am empathic. This year more so then ever I am feeling all types of energies, constantly am feeling crazy. My mood swings are instant and astronomical. I am often nauseous. I was told I am having a spiritual awakening, I have been thinking it was anxiety. Help?

Answer: The best thing you can do is to practice meditation and mindfulness. Your goal, while this is happening, is to soothe yourself. The last thing you need is to feel anxious and disconnected.

So look into techniques such as earthing and grounding. The former is very easy and simply requires you to take off your shoes and stand barefoot on grass, or sand or rock. Fifteen minutes as often as you can.

Grounding is a meditation where you relax and visualize roots growing from your body down into the earth. Imagine an energy exchange where your volatile, hard to control energy is replaced by slower earth energy. Do it as often and for as long as you can manage.

There are many resources on the web for both techniques.

If, however, your emotions, energy, and thoughts don't slow and improve within a couple of weeks, then please seek professional medical advice, as it may be a hormone or chemical imbalance.

Question: I was asleep and then woke up because I saw my boyfriend with another girl in my mind. I was looking at her from his point of view. Found out the next week he had cheated with the lady from the dream. I'd never even seen her before. It scared me. Still does. Advice?

Answer: The mind is an amazing thing, and yours accessed the level of consciousness where there is no time. The event was so significant that it was imprinted on this universal consciousness and made available to you. It's not dangerous, so there's no need to be scared. It's a natural phenomenon that only a few can experience. If it happens again, consider keeping a journal to record your experiences.

Question: How do you learn to ignore the bad thoughts and knowing how people really feel despite what they say or to have to act normally during an interaction with someone you know is lying through their teeth? How do you warn people you love about something? How do I act normally when I walk into a house and get sick to my stomach and feel weak because there are foul spirits there attacking me?

Answer: This is tough, I am sure. You can attempt to deal with these things in a couple of different ways. When in a situation that you aren't comfortable with, plead a sudden headache and excuse yourself. Do your best to remove yourself from negativity. Develop coping strategies when talking to liars - look them in the eye, don't say anything, but let their subconscious know that you know what they are up to.

When warning loved ones, do it in the form of a question. In other words, let them come to the conclusion that you want them to. When walking into a building that is full of bad energy, turn around, plead the headache or whatever and don't go in there again. You can even say... "I don't know what it is, but every time I go in there I get a really bad headache."

One of the most important things you can do is to reach out to people who have similar problems. I wrote an article for another site which has some suggestions:

Question: I know that I am very much Clairsentient, but I've been getting short visions that I sometimes can see in front me as if I'm watching it happen or a possible outcome of what may happen shortly, or has already happened. It just comes and goes at random, but it's usually when I'm wide awake, whether I'm talking to someone or doing daily tasks. What does it mean?

Answer: What you are describing is 'clairvoyance' or 'clear vision.' Many psychic mediums are clairvoyant. They learn and practice their gift until it becomes a useful tool that they can use to help people.

Question: Can you be both Clairsentient and Claircognizant?

Answer: Yes, you can have a mix of several 'clairs', including clairvoyance and clairaudience. Everyone experiences their psychic abilities in different ways.

Question: Are you clairsentient when a person gives you chills and you instantly dislike them due to their dark aura?

Answer: If you can see auras then you definitely have a psychic gift. However, if you are referring to an instinctive or intuitive feeling, then that is common among most people. Clairsentience is related to this but it's stronger and more intense. Clairsentients don't only pick up that heavy, negative feeling; they can tune into their ability in any situation so are able to pick up positivity as well.

Question: I feel like reading people and having fun with them, but not really caring about them. It's become more of a game. What's wrong with me?

Answer: Sounds like you might have sociopathic traits: lack of empathy, enjoy manipulating others, coldness, etc.

Question: I usually feel a loving hand on my back. Is that an angel or God?

Answer: I couldn't say. If it feels like gentle guidance, then that's wonderful. Accept it for what it is and don't try to label it.

Question: How do you feel about using crystals and stones as a means of protection against the chaos that comes with other peoples energies?

Answer: Using crystals as protection is pretty common. I can't say for sure whether they work or not. Personally, I'd rather put my faith into my own intention to be protected. As in using visualization.

I think it's because I am a little ambivalent around the trend for using crystals, mainly because they are extracted using methods of mining which are harmful to the planet. Lovely things, but perhaps not worth the ecological price?

Question: My feelings creep me out really bad to the point where I numb them. How can I live without suppressing my feelings? I don’t want to feel bad vibes every time someone has bad intentions.

Answer: It sounds like you are extremely empathic. What you need to do is develop some coping strategies when the feelings start to come. The first one is to physically move away from the person. You also need to know that the person may not have bad intentions but they are just negative.

Have a look at this article:

Question: I’ve always felt so deeply towards elements and nature, and now, humans. I feel a deep connection especially with humans, I feel empathy and usually am overwhelmed by it. Also, recently I’ve been doing this thing where I meet people online and they send me pictures of their eyes and I read them. Almost all of the things I’ve said to people are completely true. But it confuses me because I, for some reason, don’t think I am clairvoyant. What do you think it is?

Answer: No, you're right, I don't think it's clairvoyance. It sounds like you can read people like I read cards. It's a well-developed intuition. I would say it's more akin to claircognizance. You don't know how you know, but you just do.

Question: Is there a way to be certain that you have clairsentience?

Answer: Yes, by keeping a record of your experiences, thoughts, feelings about people, events, and situations that you wouldn't normally know. Such as knowing the outcome of a situation. If you write them down, you can go back and check to see if they came true. You won't have a hundred percent record, but if a large proportion are accurate, then you'll know you are clairsentient.

Question: I know that I am clairsentient now. Kind of scary but it's a relief. I have horrible headaches and hoping I can get some relief now. Will they get better if I learn how to control this?

Answer: If you have recurring headaches, then you should seek professional medical advice. They aren't necessarily connected with psychic gifts. Don't ignore them.

Question: I feel like this describes a lot of my experiences. I have no control when it happens, but when I do feel something, it comes in very strong. It is very hard for me to let go when I know for sure. Even if it looks like it is not going to happen the way I strongly feel it. Then I feel I can't trust these very strong feelings. How do I deal with these feelings?

Answer: I would suggest that you use a journal to record and express these feelings. Then later you can check back to see which were accurate and which were a bit off. Don't forget, even if it doesn't turn out exactly like you've interpreted, your intuition was probably spot on. Give yourself a break; your conscious mind isn't going to be able to decode the feelings perfectly every time. Write it all down and see how it goes.

Question: This describes why I can't go anywhere near Gettysburg and Manassas battlefields, or cemeteries. I've also dreamed dreams that have come true years later. What is that called?

Answer: Dreams that manifest into reality are called precognitive dreams. Your discomfort when visiting places where people have been killed is due to you picking up on the massive amount of psychic energy that was expended there.

Question: I feel that I can project my emotions onto others, what does this mean?

Answer: It's very possible that your energy is strong enough to affect other people. If it's mostly negative, then you might find that other people don't enjoy being in your company for too long. People like that are known as 'energy vampires.'

If you make people feel positive, then they will be drawn to you like moths to a candle. We all love being in the company of someone with positive emotional vibes.

However, it's not a sign of clairsentience. Clairsentience is the ability to detect energy vibrations, whether it be in an empathic way or in an atmospheric manner.

Question: I went on my first ghost hunt and I felt an energy. I don’t know how or why, but I knew the spirit was there and knew where she was so I took a picture and caught it on camera. I couldn’t see her but I knew. The next day I experienced feelings of sorrow and woke up crying at 9 a.m. Couldn’t stop the tears till 3 a.m. when I finally fell asleep. It was like nothing I’d felt before. I don’t know what any of this means. Do I have a gift? If so what is it?

Answer: It's an interesting experience, but it's not possible to say unless you have more of them. The best thing to do is to keep a journal of all the psychic experiences you have. Then you may see a pattern emerge.

Question: I can can see and feel what people feel and see. And know intentions and thoughts. What is this?

Answer: This is empathy, which most people have but some, like yourself, have it to a greater degree. People who have a well-developed gift of empathy are called 'empaths'.

Question: Sometimes when I touch people, I see and occasionally feel colors, how can I control it?

Answer: It sounds as if you are seeing and feeling auras; the energy fields around every person. I suggest you turn it into a strength, a gift. Get some people to practice on. Keep notes. Eventually, you will learn when to use it and when to suppress it.

Question: Before my child told me her father was molesting her, I was having visions, seeing it in my head plain as day, but I brushed it off. I'm just trying to understand. Would my experiences be the clairsentience you're speaking of?

Answer: Yes, absolutely. You already knew it was going on and your intuition was trying to make you see it. This article might explain what was going on a little more clearly:

Question: I wake up in the middle of the night with a very intense tingling sensation all over my body. This happens during the day, but not as intensely. I definitely sense peoples energy as well as my own. I have mood swings and I struggle a lot in life. I feel like I change a lot. And I’ve seen but mostly felt things I can’t explain. But most of all, I get this tingling sensation all the time. What does this mean?

Answer: Your tingling sensation may be a result of anxiety. I have something similar from time to time. I do get a different kind of tingling in my hands when reading tarot or casting spells, but the all-over tingling is connected to emotion, for me, anyway.

Question: I have recently learned that I am an empath. I also have most of the characteristics of being clairsentient and claircognizant. When I am talking with the man I care for I experience full body tingling and a sensation that I’m being drawn, like a magnet towards him. Any idea what this could mean? I’m wondering about twin flame and/or soulmates.

Answer: It does sound as if you have a strong psychic connection. I wrote an article about this on another website:

Question: When I was a child I started dreaming about people who were going to die. As I grew up I had dream visitations from my dad (after he passed) and eventually, in that moment before I fall asleep, I have received visitations from others close to me. Today my dreams are lucid and symbolic (I understand the symbolism somehow). I also get straight messages about situations going on in my life. What kind of ability is this? I’d like to understand it better. Can it be developed?

Answer: You are experience precognitive dreaming. And, yes, you can develop it. I'm no dream expert so I recommend you check out this site. It offers a free lucid dreaming course:

Question: After reading this article, it all makes sense now! I am very sensitive to different energies good and bad. I see number sequences every day of my life. I have had several odd experiences since I was a child. What does it mean if I think of someone and a day later I see them? Or a thought pops in my head and three seconds later someone acts out that thought? Or I reach for my phone two seconds before it rings?

Answer: Those are signs of clairsentience or precognition. Your thought isn't making that person show up, it's the fact that the person is going to show up that causes the thought. On the psychic plane time is 'squishy', so vibrations may turn up as though even though on our plane, the person hasn't yet appeared. Same with the other examples you give.

Question: I thought I had anxiety but it's getting stronger and overwhelming. I am honestly freaked out and scared. I know it's a gift but I don't know what to do with it, nor do I want to waste it. I wish I didn't have such "gift" because my gut feeling constantly bothers me and I don't know why. I see things and energy. Whenever I center my chakras I see colors; I can feel when something is happening; I can see people's energy. How can I tame my gifts?

Answer: Firstly you really do need to rule out any mental health conditions, such as anxiety, depression and stress. Then you need to stop working on your chakras because sometimes that kind of meditation can be harmful. Instead focus on calming your mind and relaxing your body. I also recommend you begin to keep a journal of all your experiences, but do it in a calm and non-emotional way. See if you can spot any patterns, such as the things you describe happening in certain places, around certain people, when you are in a certain mood. All that sort of thing.

Regularly go back and revisit your journal entries; leave space for updates. So when you get information about future events, go back and update the entry with what did happen. Be as objective as you can. In this way, you will begin to be able to control your reactions.

Question: I guess my question more so related to the clairsentient mind while sleeping. I lucid dream a lot. I thought everyone did. I've done it since I was a child. How does lucid dreaming and clairsentience relate? Do they go hand in hand? My dreams are never prophetic; I'm just aware I'm dreaming and can continue exploring the dreamscape.

Answer: I think that all these 'extra-sensory' gifts must be inter-related. However, I'm a lucid dreamer, but I'm not very clairsentient. I don't experience any connection between the two. For them to be strongly linked, your dreams would have to be prophetic in some way.

Question: My gift is that trees, plants and animals speak to me. I hear the earth speaking. I do see spirits and occasionally speak to the dead. I pick up on energy from children. I don’t tune to adult energy. I have had to turn off the TV and any media. Crowds overwhelm me. Especially at a certain store. I just go to a feeling lost mode. I am happy outside and in nature. Where do I find information or a name for this?

Answer: You are an empath, which means you feel and experience what others (in this case nature and children) are feeling. Imagine that all things have an aura (which they do) and that aura is mingling with your own. Most people don't notice because they haven't developed their sensitivity. You have an inbuilt sensitivity like an antenna.

You may also be psychic in that you can pick up 'old' energy from the dead.

Question: I am pretty much all of the above. I've been afraid to speak to anyone about it due to past bad experiences. I'm lost and looking for a clearer understanding pertaining to my gifts. So my question is what am I according to my gifts?

Answer: Are you searching for a label? I would advise that the last thing you want is to place yourself into some type of psychic category. Instead, spend your time doing some research into your gifts. Maybe find yourself an online community where you can interact with others like you.

Question: I just discovered I'm clairsentient and I don't know how to control it. Do you have any advice on how to ignore the energy and thoughts of other people?

Answer: It's difficult but you have to train yourself. Try distraction techniques, depending where you are. Get your phone out and play a game or check your social media. Force yourself to think of something else. Imagine blocking out the signals from other people by visualising a protective sphere. Carry a small piece of obsidian or other protective crystal and hold it in your hand when necessary. Or you might wear it as a pendant. If those techniques don't work, remove yourself from the person/situation.

Question: I have a weird way of just knowing when people are "no good" or if they are OK. I am never wrong, never. Sometimes it takes me a while to figure out why I am feeling this way; sometimes I never know. I have an anxiety disorder to which I always chalked up my feelings. I'm not sure if this is what is going on with me, or if it is my anxiety. Any advice?

Answer: It sounds as though you are empathic. In other words, you can feel what they are feeling. It's almost like you can see through the layers of their cultivated persona. This may well be part of your anxiety, and even be one of the causes.

I found this, which might help:

Try Googling 'empathy and anxiety'; there are lots of resources on the web.

Question: I am not aware if I have clairsentience but after reading this, it seems like I have experienced all of what was explained. Only, with me, I don't know if it is possible, but can someone be connected to a specific person? It doesn't make sense or is hard to explain, but I truly believe I was meant to find this person, for reasons I have no idea. When they feel pain, whether from an accident or emotional, I feel it and I am not in the room. Can two souls be connected?

Answer: I think they can. It's rare but some people are almost like psychic twins. I wrote an article on another site about the phenomena of psychic relationships.

Question: What do the tingles mean? I have them all over my body. They don’t really happen in one place. How do I know if they’re good or bad? It even happens when I’m thinking about something. They’re not always there but they’re there a lot.

Answer: It sounds like a mild neurological response. It's probably not related to clairsentience because you're not getting any additional messages or information. However, if you can determine that it happens at particular times, you might find that a pattern occurs.

Question: I'm very empathic and told I'm too sensitive. I can sense a person's energy, know what someone is going to say before they say it, and I get feelings about things that turn up to be true or come true. Tonight I felt extremely uneasy and uncomfortable, I have a feeling like something bad is going to happen in the world like a disaster. I didn't know if this was anxiety coming out at first, but it feels more intuitive. How do you tell the difference between the two?

Answer: You can't always tell so only the passing of time can answer. I'd suggest keeping a journal of feelings and emotions when this happens. After awhile you may be able to discern the difference.

Question: I have been psychic for all my life, however I have felt that I've lost my abilities to a certain degree, e.g. I had dreams as a child that came true; but that has not been the case lately. Is that even possible? Can I get those abilities back? Also, I am aware that despite my being clairsentient and clairvoyant, this question is more about being clairvoyant, but I haven't found the article for clairvoyance.

Answer: Sometimes people are more psychic as children, possibly because they are open to all possibilities. Life tends to dampen down those dreams ans intuitions. You might be able to reignite your abilities by recording your dreams and writing down those random thoughts. Keeping a journal is a good way to bring your 'clairs' to the forefront.

I haven't written an article about clairvoyance as there is a lot of information about it around. Claircognizance and clairsentience are not so widely discussed.

Question: I know I’m clairsentient. Every time I get into my friend's car I get a headache, then as soon as I get out it’s gone. Why does this happen?

Answer: I haven't heard of anything like that before. It's possible you are picking up on some kind of energy, either from your friend or from the vehicle. If your friend's car is connected to a cell signal, or if she has her phone on while in the car, the electromagnetic waves (microwaves) are increased by 400%, so it might be that. Make sure cellphones are turned off, open the window and see if it stops.

Question: It has been a few months since I started hearing voices and feeling energy in my right ear. I keep hearing about someone's past or future, and sometimes I saw my future which became real afterward. It has been three days since my right ear becomes heavy and I feel dizzy. Any advice or help?

Answer: The first thing you must do is rule out any medical condition. Go to your doctor and have your ears checked out. Just tell him or her about the voices (in general), the sensation and the dizziness. I wouldn't tell him/her about the psychic aspects. Once you have established that your ears and aural faculties are healthy then begin to keep a journal of your experiences.

Question: I've recently discovered I'm clairsentient. I've picked up on people's negative energy at work and it's kept me safe in an instance on a night out from a man who from his energy would have been very dangerous. I'd like to use this gift as a job. I was considering taking up an apprenticeship but looking at that list maybe I should consider trying to get into detective work somehow as I can read negative energy. Not sure about developing the clairsentience or how to get into that field of work?

Answer: I think one of the best fields for a clairsentient would be psychology or counselling. It would be unlikely to help in police work as real-life policing is based on logic, evidence, and adherence to procedures. Those intuitive detectives are only in the movies.

Question: Been feeling awful lately and not sure why. Usually it happens when I'm at home on my bed. I feel nauseous and my headaches are bad. I think I may be anxious because a volcano near us is currently on very high alert. However, I usually only feel like this at home. What should I do?

Answer: The first thing you must do is rule out any medical reason. You might think you are only feeling it when you are in bed because you are quiet and paying attention to your body. So go to your doctor and get your blood tested for things like anemia, etc. Then address your anxiety - use a calming technique like meditation.

Question: I am most definitely clairsentient but I'm still learning as I go. How do I tune out other energies so I can enjoy being at parties? Some days are easier than others to read people. Sometimes I get random, irrelevant information and I don't know who it's for.

Answer: It's a question of practice. It might be a good idea to reach out to one or two professional mediums and ask for advice - they must have gone through the same process as you. They might be kind enough to share some practical strategies that will help you. Another suggestion is to contact others who are also going through the same thing.

To hone and improve your gift, try keeping a detailed journal. You'll see I've given others here similar advice, so have a read through some of the other questions.

Question: I have had five episodes of severe depression over the past six years. How can I stop this happening again? I need to talk to someone about this. Any help would be much appreciated.

Answer: It is beyond the scope of my expertise to give you advice regarding depression. I would point you in the direction of the spiritual teachers, Abraham-Hicks. At the same time, you should consult your health professional for practical suggestions.

It means you are sensitive to energy, Jocelyn.

I was wondering what it meant. Whenever I'm around certain people or places. I end up feeling like I get hit with a giant energy force. I feel like I'm going to faint, heads foggy. I don't really understand it. Thank you for any advice, much appreciated.

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on December 09, 2019:

Hi Jessyca, I'm not qualified to give mental health advice but what I suggest is that you keep a detailed journal of your feelings and subsequent events.

It's possible that you are an empath rather than a clairsentient.

Jessyca on December 09, 2019:

I would very much love to know more about being clairsentient, I have just recently, today might I add, been given some enlightenment on what it is causing my anxiety attack like episode, I feel uncomfortable and irritable with sweaty palms, and more or less straight after something normally of bad natured or negative happens, after thinking about it, I've had it happen quiet a few times in the past and been able to link it to certain things that have happened to certain people I know, but it's been more of a regular happening the past few months as if the more I'm learning and trying to engage it, it gets stronger, making me feel tired afterwards.

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on October 20, 2019:

Hi Amanda, it's a two-edged sword, for sure :/

Thank you for your kind words, much appreciated.

Amanda Buck from Indiana on October 20, 2019:

You mentioned that coping gets easier as you get older... while I find it true that I am learning more about myself and coming to accept my gifts, I also find that I am becoming increasingly sensitive and that is harder to deal with. I appreciate your articles, I'm learning a lot!

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on September 06, 2019:

Hi Gemini, so sorry about your uncle. This must be a horrendously difficult time for you.

One thing you can do, is to reassert your own energy by silently communicating with him whilst touching his hand or arm. Tell him it's okay to let go. That all pain will cease. That he has nothing to fear. Just keep up the reassurance. It will help you too.

Geminitreasure215 on September 06, 2019:

Is it possible to feel a soul leaving someone... My uncle is on hospice and last night I swear I felt his soul leaving him during an episode he was having. He was unconcious for a while but since he has come back.... I feel sick, helpless, sad, afraid and I know these feelings are coming from him. I can't feel his energy yet I am absorbing his emotiins but he is still alive. I'm so confused and can't control my emotions any advice would be amazing.

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on August 14, 2019:

Best thing is to go and research it, Rose. I haven't got time to go through it all here, but yes, it's perfectly controllable :)

Rose on August 14, 2019:

Is the law of attraction something I can control or does it just happen. Meaning can I control what to happen, or is it predicting the future?

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on August 13, 2019:

Rose, you haven't actually asked a question :)

It sounds as though you have mastered the Law of Attraction without trying. Many of us would envy your ability!

Rose on August 13, 2019:

Hi. I don't know how to explain this, but sometimes a random thought pops up in my head and a few seconds later they happen. For example, I was walking in a park once and I was looking at the ground. Then a really random thought (vision?) popped in my head that I would trip on my next step. The next step that I took I tripped. This happens often. Also, whenever me and my best friend are close or near each other, something strange happens. Like we would talk or mention someone and then they would appear moments later. For example, we were talking about the math homework our teacher gave us, then a few moments later our math teacher came to us and said if we needed help with our homework we could go to him. This also happens often. I know this was long, but I really do hope you could answer some of my questions. All the best,


Jen on May 04, 2019:

Ok, thanks so much!

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on May 04, 2019:

Hi Jen,

Not really, though there are many to choose from. Have a browse on Amazon and read the reviews.

What I do have is this resource page that I put together a while ago (I have a lot of psychic articles on this site, so have a browse through the blog):

Jen on May 03, 2019:

Thanks so much for the response and advice! One last question, lol sorry... Is there any specific articles or books you would recommend to help continue working with and developing them? Thanks again!!

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on May 03, 2019:

Hi Jen,

We use the 'clairs' to help define the various psychic gifts. However, it's really a spectrum of abilities. So anyone can have any combination of these gifts. From healing to sensing energy in old buildings; from reading people to dreaming the future.

My advice is not to try to label or categorise your gifts, but simply to allow them, explore them, develop them and share them :)

Jen on May 03, 2019:

Oh, I’d like to add that I also have been grabbed, touched, patted on my back and shoulder, hugged, pushed to be saved from falling, only to turn around and find no one there. Sometimes I feel safe, calm, and loved... other times the energy surrounding what’s happening doesn’t feel so good, and is scary.

Jen on May 03, 2019:

Thank you so much for this article. Since I was very young, I’ve been able to feel the energy all around me... coursing through my body, in the air I breathe, the soil, nature, off objects, people, places, environments, shifts of energy in the atmosphere...

I also began practicing healing hands at a young age, because it just felt right, like I was called to, without even realizing what I was doing. It started with one of my animals that was sick. I just intuitively knew what to do, and believe it or not, his heart palpitation was gone. Later on I found out this was an actual thing. It was insane, but a confirmation at a young age to always follow my intuition.

My mother and friends have told me that I’m a blood hound because I can easily sniff out others intentions, as soon as I meet them, without them even saying a word, I just know.

I also can always read people, with what they are and aren’t saying... reading between the lines, k owing if their lying...

I find it hard to be around people, although I’m actually quite social, I look anti social lol... It just depends on who it is that’s in my environment, and where I’m at. Most of the time, I find myself getting headaches or easily frustrated when around people and noisy, busy places.

I knew that I had a gift, but didn’t know what to call it, and empath never felt right to me, never resonated, even though I can feel emotional energy.

My question is though, can you have more than one Claire? While I do believe and know that Clairesentience is my main Claire, I feel like I may have more than one. I’ve seen apparitions since I was very young. I’m talking full black masses, shadow people, full body apparitions that look like a normal person, and more strange inhuman type looking things. I also hear things, which is, out of all of these gifts, the one that sometimes makes me question myself lol. Sometimes I just know things, like I kept having visions of getting into a car wreck, and was getting super anxious for no reason every time I was in a car, and sure enough, I got into a car wreck within two weeks, going 74 mph. It was insanse.

And finally, I would be talking to someone, and would response to what they are saying, only for them to be like “What? I didn’t say that... I thought it, but I didn’t say it. That’s creepy.”

So sorry for such a long comment, I’ve been trying to find someone to talk to that is legit about these things, because I need help figuring out what is going on. I totally understand the clairsentience, but the rest, I’m not sure what it is. Once I know, it’ll be a lot easier to deal with, and work on them.

Any advice, or tips would be greatly appreciated! Thank you so much!

Sorry to hear you are struggling with this, Gracielou. You might find a useful resource here:

Gracielou on March 26, 2019:

For a long time I've just though I got a ton of deja vu, but lately I've noticed it increasing from seconds to entire minuets and conversations.. Often I just know things, I know people's feeling without an explanation and often from a long distance away. I could never stand my HS lunch room because i could feel all the differnt emotions and theu would overwhelm me. I can easily read any person's intentions just by looking in there eyes.It's odd but that light just tells me a lot about them. Lately I feel crazy because of this. My deja vu had been increasing to entire minuets or conversations. I can't explain it and honestly I'm very freaked out. Nothing ive read quite seems to match my deja vu experiences becsuse i know for a fact half the time i dremt it prior. The other half of the time i dont realize im having deja vu untill my husband proves to me that we never had the conversation i thought we did because of a deja vu moment that i didnt catch and slipped over. Is there anyone I can talk to? Hec this probably sounds crazy, but i really am stuggling with this and i just dont know what to do. Idk I guess I'm just hoping someone will read this and understand... or be able to help.

Taki Mokuzai from Rogersville, Missouri on March 01, 2019:

Okay! I just did not know, since people say empaths feel the emotions of others, but I don't, and yet the level I feel is that of an empath. Thanks for the advice and info!

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on March 01, 2019:

Of course, that's what I meant. People can have a whole range of psychic gifts. Think of it as a spectrum of vibration. Some will veer more to the hearing vibrations (clairaudient), some visual (clairvoyant), and some like you more toward the feeling end of things.

Taki Mokuzai from Rogersville, Missouri on March 01, 2019:

Okay. Is it possible to be both?

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on February 26, 2019:

The qualities of both can overlap, so don't rule empathy out all together :)

Taki Mokuzai from Rogersville, Missouri on February 26, 2019:

SUCH a helpful article, Bev! For about 6 months now, I've been calling myself an empath, but now I see I am a clairsentient.

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on January 08, 2019:

Thank you so much, Payton. Embrace your gifts, in whatever way they manifest xx

Payton Lambes on January 08, 2019:

This is an amazing and helpful article, thank you so much for informing people about things that could potentially worry them or freak them out. For the past 6 months or so I have been able to feel energy extremely. I tend to see different color orbs around people which I take as my instinct giving me a vibe I get from the certain person, situation, or place. With feeling this energy, I feel that it has helped me learn what I truly want to do, where I want to live, and who I want to be. I also am obsessed with the beach and I get major vibes from the city, especially at night for some reason. I want to do nothing more than to make people happy and spread love. I often get discouraged by others when they question my ability to feel energy. Sending love and positive energy from the United States (:

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on December 25, 2018:

You can learn to control and use your gifts in any way you choose :)

Ashley Long IrishGypsy on December 25, 2018:

after you realize the type of psychic empath you are, do you need to commit or even partake in every quality of your most qualifying empathic type?

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on December 08, 2018:

Absolutely. People's psychic gifts are as varied as their personalities.

brian from uk on December 08, 2018:

Can you be a mixture of clairs and empathic

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on November 20, 2018:

You could try talking to him, Anamika. Not about the stuff in your message, but just to see if he'd like to be friends.

Anamika on November 20, 2018:

I love this boy since 3 years bt he doesnt know about all this. I get some kind of attraction feeling when I Stand next to some magnetic attraction. I mostly get gut feelings about him when he is in trouble or something. I always feel his presence when he is somewhere around me. For his further studies he moved somewhere else..but I know it some how when he is going to cone back home.. I don't know how I do this...i jst get a feeling about all this. Sometimes its too strong...i can feel smomething in my chest nd some really strong feeling...and I know its something related to him but don't know what it exactly is. Sometimes I feel he's in some kind of sometime I can't figure it out what it exactly is. I don't understand why I keep getting such feelings about him. Is he my soul mate or is it my stupidity. Though I really love him deeply... Nd sometimes I feel I'm gonna end up with him. But I'm nt sure of it. I don't know what to do. Help me.

Clarity0916 on August 08, 2018:

Thank you so much that would be most helpful!

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on August 08, 2018:

Hi Clarity, wow, thanks for sharing your story.

It's a really helpful gift. You could use it to reassure people and explain that death is nothing to be afraid of. The fact that you get presentient knowledge way before the event is also useful. Of course it's up to you if you choose to develop your gifts further.

It would be a good idea if you could research psychic protection. Some use a simple ritual, or crystals to keep themselves safe. It will help if you don't give the negative energy too much attention. Just tell it to leave. They feed off fear, so don't give them your fear. Easy to say, I know.

I'll do some research myself and perhaps put together an article with as many techniques as I can find. It'll take a little while, but I'll add a link to the bottom of this article when it's done. So come back after the weekend. Meanwhile, stay safe.

Clarity0916 on August 07, 2018:

Omg I have been struggling since I was a child trying to find explanations to what I was feeling. I had a favorite uncle whom I was very close to and he passed one night while I was asleep. I was twelve. I woke up and went into my parents room and told them he was dead and they asked me had someone called and how did I know. I felt crazy but had to tell them he told me as he came to me. A few mins later the phone rang informing my parents of his passing. I felt it when my dog died. I wasn't home but got an overwhelming sense of urgency to go home something was bad wrong with my dog. He had been let outside by my ex husband n had wandered to drink the water draining from my plants on my deck that he had recently fertilized. I was devastated n my family thought I'm crazy.

When my son was born I had an overwhelming feeling of loss n death about my son lying on my handmade bed that was a gift from my now ex husband. It was not made to regulations obviously though beautiful. There was a gap in the headboard between mattress n headboard. I begged my ex to fix it put another board to close it. He said I was paranoid n it was fine. In the middle of the night my son crawled in my bed and his head was stuck between the headboard n mattress I woke to him gasping n in an instant in pitch darkness knew to not get off the bed but to put all my weight on the end of the bed towards the headboard n scream for someone to turn on the lights. I cried all night holding my son in my arms n resenting my ex husband for not believing me.

This wasn't the first time or last he called me paranoid about my feelings. We bought an older home n we flipped it but I felt so uneasy about the front port he n the ivy growing in the bed out front. I asked my ex to please let's have it removed. I told him I had a bad feeling about someone namely our children being bitten by a poisonous snake and he laughed at me n said I was again paranoid. Well it was not my children but I did in fact get bit on that very portch while rocking in my rocking chair n talking with a friend. I never saw the snake but my toe was barely falling over the edge of the portch with each rock of my chair. I instantly felt excruciating pain n calmly asked my best friend to call 911. She freaked n asked me why what was wrong I told her I had just been bitten by a snake. She asked how I knew I laughed at first but just lifted my foot to two fang marks with blood trickling from each hole. Turns out my feelings were right, copperhead, my kidneys shut down n I had to get antevenom which sebtbme into anaphylaxis. They lost me n brought me back. I spent a week in hospital trying to get my kidney function back. All of these things I have felt some w visions or in dreams most without just feelings. I'm freaked out Bc most my life I know I suppressed it because people including my family thought I was weird or paranoid. Now I live alone my kids in college n well got rid of my husband who did spend that night pulling all the ivy up by hand n killing the snake versus ever going to hospital in spite of given scenario above, hence, my feelings told me he was not for me.

I've been more in tune to my emotions n feelings as I spend a great deal of time in prayer now. I have always been an empath perhaps the Virgo in me but I'm being drawn to feel things even more so now I feel to help others. Sometimes I feel though it may not be so helpful.

Just last week two other coworkers and myself were waiting for the train to NJ for a wedding. Out of the blue I got a feeling about another one of our dear coworkers. The nicest man you'd ever wana meet. I said randomly that I prayed he was feeling ok n was doing alright as I teach so we have been off all summer. My friends looked at me n said why would you say that? I said I isn't know I just had a feeling he was ill n they said well that was weird but I said I would chk on him when we returned. That was Thursday at 2 am a week ago. I got back from NJ n well my daughter was visiting n life happened n I hadn't checked on my coworker as planned. I got a call Weds morning from one of my friends who accompanied me on the trip to wedding, wailing in my ear incomprehensible words at such a wretched screech that my heart dropped immediately n I knew our coworker was gone. Just shy of a week from my statement to his departure. She insisted I tell her how I knew n what happened n I told her idk I just felt it. She hasn't talked to me since that day. It's been a week tommorrow. I feel she is scared of me. We've been friends for four years. I don't let people close to me for this reason. I'm always disappointed. I fell in love to a man n we committed to each other for four years. It was amazing n like no other love I've ever experienced. I started to feel he was struggling with some depression n he denied it to me for awhile but finally admitted n well we broke up last Nov 2. Since then we can't stay completely away from each other. It's been nine months. We still talk n see each other n feel drawn to one another. I can feel when he is in pain, stressed, or something bad is wrong. He can with me as well. I can't explain this either but will randomly send him messages letting him know for example that I feel he's anxious n has tightness in his chest n can't breath n that I feel it too n am worried about him. He did t answer for several days which made it worse for me Bc then I felt much more. I prayed n the more I prayed the more I could feel. He had an allergic reaction to something in a restaurant n he is deathly allergic to shell fish.

He has never made me feel I'm crazy or paranoid or any of those things but just accepts me for what it is and will just send back a kissy face emoji or something similar when I send him messages checking on him based on my feelings. This is confirmation for me from him that I am right n right on time. I have no doubt he is my TF n he is also intuitive in some way.

Just yesterday Uranus retrograde has had me in such an anxious state I can't decern who or what energies I'm feeling other than my TF. I woke up with his disc pain n stress but also very very anxious and emotional but right now I don't quite know why.

I'm so glad this forum was here and I came across it in my searching for answers to wth is happening to me. I don't know what you would say I have but I can tell you only once have I feared an energy in my presence but it was in my dream. I just prayed n prayed only this energy was blocking the Lord's Prayer from my mind. I've been raised on this prayer all my life how in this instance could this be happening to me? I just kept rebuking Satan in the name of Jesus. Idk what to do. The energy was black n free flowing faceless. It finally left me alone. Of course I hadn't forgotten the Lords Prayer but in that moment the words were not coming to me. My praying has gone much deeper than this prayer I was used to from childhood but I know in that moment that energy was not of light. I have again been fearful of this "gift"? Am I by opening myself and accepting this gift opening myself to negative energies that wish to do me harm?

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on July 18, 2018:

Ren, I recommend you try to find an online community so you can share with others who have similar experiences to your own. I have written an article on another site which has some resources that might help:

Ren on July 17, 2018:

When I was a kid I used to see people at night who weren't there. In high school I used to have dreams about faces I never saw. Some of the experiences I had terrified me so I tried to suppress it, but I don't think thats the answer.

Now, i only really feel it. Presences that aren't there. Emotions when no ones around. Every once in awhile i see shadows around people and I stay away from them. Its like a warning.

But I realized, if i can see that, isnt there something i should do about it? I want to learn more but I dont know where to start.

And sometimes the presences are so overwhelming I get scared. What can i do?

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on June 13, 2018:

So sorry to hear about your daughter, Amber. I can't imagine anything worse.

It sounds to me as if you are psychic, and may possibly benefit by developing your skills and learning how to control them.

Amber on June 13, 2018:

I think I've always known that I'm a empath not sure about the other one that you were speaking of but recently and for awhile now my body would start jerking for no reason wondered what that was about nd in my 20's I had some type of black blob that would show up on the walls of my house and follow me if I moved elsewhere and also I've had a child that passed away as a infant and I knew it was going to happen before she died and also 2 weeks before I had a vision that I would be in a car wreck involving a semi and it happened as I had envisioned the only difference in that was I didn't die so idk what are your thoughts

Sylvia on June 06, 2018:

Wow what a relief to read this today. I have been experiencing waves of clairsentience for the past 6 years. The medics labelled me bipolar. The medication I have been given has nearly killed me, but I now know what has been going on. I have had 5 bad episodes of depression over the past six years. Each one has lasted 5 months. That’s a long time to feel totally abandoned by the Universe. I now know these episodes have been brought on by being around “toxic” people and in “toxic” places. I am sad though, that some of these people are the ones Inlove the most. I will buy the Kevin Hunter book to learn more. Thank you so much for helping me along the Way

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on May 18, 2018:

I can imagine, Gareth. You might think about using your current skillset on a one-to-one basis in the future. You would probably be excellent as a therapist or bereavement counsellor as long as you can develop a method to 'shake it off' at the end of the day.

Garrett mantooth on May 18, 2018:

I too have been called sensitive and I don't like to go to places where alot of folks are at ,all the mixed up energy from everyone puts me on edge , I stay home and go to work .

But even there it's a mental emotional rollercoaster, it's a nursing home.

I'm glad I can now put a word on what I am , I was always called weirdo

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on April 14, 2018:

You have a very mature approach, Alice. Take it steady and you will be fine. Nothing can harm you, and always remember it's them and not you. Make use of protective barriers (visualise them and feeeel them). Do come back and let us all know how it goes.

Alice on April 14, 2018:

I have always had what I refer to as "sense." When someone walks by me, sometimes I shiver for no apparent reason. When I was younger, I used to feel as if someting was touching me, or brushing my hair. The night my grandfather died, I felt that he was not going to see the next morning. About a week ago, I felt as if a weight was crushing down on me, and had to walk out of class on the excuse that I had to use the restroom to get it to stop. In some rooms I feel as if I'm not alone. I seem to know things about others. I can tell when they are happy and sad. I am very emotional, but have learned to control and hide it and even cut myself off from the pain of another so that to some people I seem unempathatic.

I always thouht that my sense was strange but after reading several different articles on clairsentientence, I realized that is what I have and that many other people have it, and most don't know it. I'm only twelve, so I have quite a lot of time to learn about it and work with my gift.

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on April 14, 2018:

Did you ask me this question yesterday, Abigail? Do be honest, I've never tried contacting other empaths in that way. You'd have to know someone is an empath and then give it a go.

You're welcome to send me some positive energy. I'd never refuse :)

Abigail Hansen on April 13, 2018:

I can control and deeply feel the energy flowing through my body; sometimes making myself shiver with energy. If I focus hard I can see bright energy, and totally transform the world around me somehow... i go into some kind of trance but I don’t at the same time. I feel everything deeply. I want to know if it is possible to send positive energy to other people like me? Oh also I’m only 15 but I know I have this gift, ive known forever, and I can tell when others have the gift too. I know to keep it silent for the most part, that’s why I want to know if it’s possible to send postitive energy to other empaths.

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on February 24, 2018:

:) Sometimes it's better just to keep quiet, Reignbowbright. Glad you have found your own explanation. It's always a relief to know what's going on.

Reignbowbright on February 23, 2018:

Im 37 years old and JUST discovered this is what i have. I thought it was anxiety for the longest time and that I was overly emotional. Im also an Empath. I think the worse part is when i say to someone im mirroring their feelings as a way of explaining i get that says "mmmhmmm shes absolutely insane."

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on February 03, 2018:

Hi Erica, I think you need to find someone who has been through a similar experience. I wrote an article about psychic resources here: scroll to the bottom for online groups and forums.

Good luck.

Erica on February 02, 2018:

I have always been called "overly sensitive" I am coming up on my 29th birthday and my thoughts about this subject have been building up over the past year. It has hit me like a rock. I am more in tuned with myself and the earths vibrations more so than ever before. I know how my day is going to be before it even starts. About 5 months ago I told my best friend I had a feeling the person I'm suppose to spend the rest of my life with was going to entire my life soon. It was crazy, I know. Well 2 weeks later she started dating an old ex so I thought well maybe I was feeling that about her. They ended quickly. A little over 2 months ago I went out with a guy I've met but never really hung out with and we are now together. It's early but he has already mentioned having a life with me. The past 6 months I wake up in the middle of the night with my whole body in severe pain, like flu aches but 10 times worse. They last for 5 minutes and disappear, nothing medically is wrong with me. I'm wondering if they could be something to do with a pshycic feeling. There have been a few times when I feel a dark presence in a certain place in my room. I do a cleanse once a month. Sometimes the presence is extremely light and protective like. A couple of weeks ago I took a picture and caught a very large, bright orb. I took another one without moving my camera and it was gone. It was extremely thick and white with a yellow ring so I know it wasn't bad. When I was little my mom said I asked her who the man was that was holding her hand in church. No one was next to her. A couple weeks later I was talking in my room and she asked me who I was talking to, I told her the man that was holding her hand. She said this went on for a long time until we were looking at a picture album and I pointed the man out. It was her dad who passed away before I was even born. Things like this happen a lot. It's never bothered me too much until now. The feelings have become so strong and overpowering I don't know how to separate them. If I really concentrate I can but it requires a lot of time I don't have. My anxiety has shot through the roof and I think I may be having anxiety attacks while I sleep causing me to wake up in pain. If I go anywhere, even the store I don't even want to look at people bc I feel like I'm having feelings shot at me from every way. I want to make sure I stay on the right path and follow my own feelings and not others.

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on January 30, 2018:

Adriana, there are many ways to cleanse a home of negative energy. You might try having a physical clear out - sometimes negativity accumulates around 'stuff'. Make the place as light and fresh as possible. Try a simple protection ritual using a smudge stick. Place powerful, protective crystals in areas you think need a little help. Just search for 'home protection spells' or 'negative energy cleansing'. And make sure you continue getting the help you need with your mental issues.

Adriana on January 29, 2018:

I sometimes feel a dark energy in my room or when I’m walking around my house at any time of day. And in some areas of my house i feel darker than normal energies. A lot has happened in and around my house that is very negative, it makes it very difficult to function sometimes because i feel overwhelmed and very anxious however i do suffer from a couple different mental problems I just feel like the energies and atmosphere of my house heighten them. I was wondering if there is a way i can get rid of the energies or at least control them?

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on January 19, 2018:

My pleasure, Jordan. And, of course, the key is to live your life on your own terms and stuff other people's opinions. If it means you are labelled eccentric, then so be it :D

Jordan Collis on January 19, 2018:

You know bev I have been feeling a way these past couple years. I could never explain why I felt the way I did. As I got older it started to feel like I was alone more and more each day. I come from a very small town that is very closed minded so these kind of talks would never happen . Anyways to the point , I found out I am most definitely an empath if yo I want to put a label on it. It's people like you that help people like me to try to understand why I feel the way I feel . Thank you bev!!

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on January 14, 2018:

Thanks, Jean. I hope your Mom and hubby pop in occasionally just to reassure you. How lovely. It sounds like you have all the 'clairs'. x

Jean Bakula from New Jersey on January 14, 2018:

Great article Bev,

I've always been clairsentient, but didn't know the word for it until I began taking clairvoyant classes in a Healing Center after my husband died. I always "knew" things would happen. I could "see" myself at a funeral, but not see myself, so wouldn't know how far in the future it was. I learned it was 2 years, give or take. Once I got false info my brother died, and we are telepathic with each other. I didn't believe it, but was scared. I was pacing, and went into my bedroom. My Mom was there, and said, "He's OK" Except she died in 1995. A few nights after my husband passed, I saw a white ball of light above my head. It was him! I could feel his energy, he used to sit with me until I got used to sleeping alone. It's sometimes a curse, but I feel good energies too, like at that Healing Center. You did a great job here.

That makes so much sense, Kari. I suppose clairsentience would also include a certain ability to anticipate needs and required actions. Great comment.

I think this is a good skill for operating room nurses. We need to continually read the mood of the room. I had never heard of this before, but I think I may have it.

That's it exactly, Verlie.

Evening Bev, I like your analogy of a radio picking up a signal. It is very much like that when you 'pick up' on the energy of a place or a person, or an occurrence or disturbance unfolding nearby. Sometimes you can just 'feel it in the air'.

Thank you, Laura. Yes, we're all capable of clairsentience--it's just a case of being aware of the subtle signs.

Feelings and sensations are definitely powerful, and it seems like they're as easy to identify as hot and cold if you're paying enough attention. Very interesting topic.
