We are aware of the usual five senses: seeing, hearing, touching, tasting, and smelling. Throughout our childhood, we have learnt how to master these senses as a way to survive as a human. Yet, all human beings are born with a Divine sixth sense with one or more clair abilities. “Clair” in French means “clear”. It is these abilities that uncover your unique psychic ability.
Clairvoyance or clear seeing originated from the French words “clear” and “voir” (to see). This ability is to see things from the past, present and future, within the mind’s eye. Clairvoyance incorporates precognition – or the knowing of events that are going to happen and postcognition (retrocognition) – knowing the events or situation that have taken place in someone’s past. Clairvoyants use their ability to see or perceive these events, while other psychics and psychic mediums may receive other Divine and spiritual information from their spirit guides, Angels or deceased loved ones.
Clairsentience means clear sensing. This ability is to feel the past, present and future physical and emotional states of other people without using the normal five senses (as mentioned above). People who are clairsentient are able to read auras, retrieve information from houses and public buildings, as well as items of sentimental value from loved ones. This is one unique ability used in both aura sensing and psychometry.
Many people have this ability without realising it. Perhaps you may have had a gut feeling yourself about a place, a person or a situation that just didn’t seem right to you. You then decided to take the best course of action for yourself. This is what clairsentience is all about. What is your own intuition trying to tell you?
Clairsentience is tied into being an empath – one who is very much tuned into the physical feelings and emotions of another person’s past, present and future. It also allows one to be more compassionate, understanding, empathic and open to unconditional love for all people.
Clairaudience means “clear hearing” and is the ability to perceive sounds or words from outside sources in the spirit world. People who have the ability of clairaudience hear voices, sounds and music that is not audible to the normal ear. These messages are received mentally and within the ears of the person. Most often, people who have this ability, have it in connection with clairvoyance.
Like with clairvoyance, many people unknowingly have this ability without realising it. This is similar to that of someone repeating a prior conversation or phrases in the past within your own mind. Sometimes in their cases, these conversations are audible in their physical ears.
Clairaudience is mostly used for animal or pet communication. Many psychic or pet communicators retrieve sounds or energy from deceased loved pets and animals. Loved ones who have crossed over are still able to be heard, but their energy will be transferred since their vibration is different. Nevertheless, all messages received are of love and comfort to all involved.
This is the ability to smell scents from the spirit world or from those who are not physically nearby. Maybe you can smell something that is symbolic or significant. It is a Divine sign that Spirit is always with you!
This is the ability to perceive tastes without actually tasting anything. You may taste something delicious that a loved one who has passed over cooked – such as grandma’s ‘secret’ recipe she never told anyone! Well, now you know!
HOW TO AWAKEN YOUR ABILITIES
As human beings, we all have at least one or two “clair” abilities. We have been given these Divine abilities because we have been born with them. It is just a matter of setting an intention of awakening your spirit, your soul and your heart.
As the old saying goes: “When the student is ready, the teacher will appear”. It is the same in spirituality. You need to be ready to be further awakened to these gifts. While they are given to you, you need to be ready to learn how to use them in a safe and learned environment.
Just as people attend school, so does one who wishes to awaken their soul lessons and their spiritual gifts. There is a process and it is a journey. There are many steps that can help you prepare your mind, body and spirit ready for this journey.
There are a variety of divination tools to help you and aid you in this process:
•Energy Healing – Life Force (Prana, Qigong, Reiki)
•Music for relaxation
While this are just a few divination tools, there are many more. The most important thing to remember is intention; the intention to connect to your soul family and spiritual team.
I hope you have enjoyed this little introduction to all the ‘clair’ abilities!
Much love and blessings,
