Being clairsentient means that you are able to receive psychic information through sensing and feeling energy.
The majority of people who have this psychic sense have always felt it to one degree or another, though most never fully tapped into it because they don't realize what it is.
You probably have a feeling that you do have this psychic sense, but have never explored.
If you're anything like me, since a child you have felt somewhat out of place in the world, like you are viewing the world from a different vantage point top.
You probably read situations through intuition and feeling and can see straight through people, and often predict things that are going to happen before they actually do.
You may get very strong feelings in particular environments and situations, where you feel uncomfortable and uneasy, or where you feel very positive and vibrant.
This is because you can feel energy emanating from people and environments where good and bad things take place, so immediately your psychic sense is trying to tell you whether something is negative or positive.
In a nutshell, it is like your heart and soul tune into life rather than simply operating through the physical attribute of being able to see someone and make a judgement on their person based on what they look like, the clothes they are wearing, or the things they say.
Your intuition is able to run deeper than that; it's a gut feeling, as we say.
If you are unsure whether you are clairsentient, here's a list of signs that will help you identify your potential:
25 Signs You Are Clairsentient
1. You're most likely greatly affected by people and the environments you come into contact with. You are sensitive to energy, and therefore if you come into contact with someone that has an imbalanced energy, or a non-peaceful environment, this may affect your mood for the rest of the day.
2. You're probably very good at identifying when someone is lying or telling the truth. It may be as clear as day to you, but for others they simply can't tell one way or the other. In this regard, you may find yourself saying to people,” I told you so”, months down the line.
3. Generally, clairsentient people tend to automatically refer to energy, through the use of language such as “I feel,” as opposed to “I think” or “I see”. Typically, you might say to someone that you have a bad feeling about someone, that you feel their energy isn't quite right.
4. You are probably a great people person, and someone that friends come to for advice. You're probably someone who people are drawn to when they have problems or are looking for direction in their lives. This is because you are a natural spiritual guide, although you may not know it.
5. When you walk into a room, you can quickly feel out the environment. You know immediately whether people are really enjoying themselves or just being nice to each other and pretending to have a good time.
Similarly, you can immediately feel when people are uncomfortable in a particular situation, and even deduce how they are feeling.
6. You are very sensitive to changes in temperature, particularly when there is no physical explanation as to why. You may find yourself asking others why it has suddenly turned cold or hot in a room, but they do not notice this in the way that you do.
7. Quite often you will remark to a friend that you thought a person was acting or feeling a certain way, but your friend did not feel the same thing in the same situation. This is because you are operating on a higher plane of energy and using your intuition.
8. You immediately sense negative energy in an environment, and immediately feel something pulling you to take yourself out of that situation. It's as if your spirit guide is telling you that you should leave.
9. Similarly, you can tell when people have been arguing, or when there is a romantic connection between two people.
10. Crowds may overwhelm you, simply because you are very sensitive to picking up on energy, and having so many energy forces around you, you are unable to cope with the overstimulation.
12. Your friends probably describe you as a sensitive person, an understanding person, or a warm person. However, it isn't unusual for clairsentient people to withdraw sometimes and, over time, become more introvert as they feel that they are misunderstood and very different from other people because of the way they view the world.
13. Clairsentient people generally have a very good sense of smell and taste. Your senses, other than sight, are heightened to tune into physical entities. You probably find yourself saying “What's that smell”, and others saying “, I can't smell anything”.
14. You have probably experienced that feeling when it feels like there is someone or some kind of energy in the room. I don't want to scare you, but there probably was, though non-clairsentient people wouldn't feel it.
15. You may have seen ghosts, or at least felt spirits or spirit guides in the past.
16. You may have experienced episodes of lucid dreaming or astral projection, either voluntarily or through practice.
17. You may have felt sensations such as your hair being touched, your leg or arm being touched when lying down in bed, or some other feeling of a presence brushing against you, although no one is there. Again, your body is tuning into non-physical energy in the room.
18. Do you get goose bumps or chills for no apparent reason? Out of the blue, it's as if you have felt something and it has startled your energy – but you don't know what.
19. You sometimes tingling sensations at the top of your head. This is your third eye becoming active.
20. You are very in tune with your own body, and you can sense when something physical is wrong. For example, you may know when you are going to get ill way before it happens.
21. Clairsentient people are often also able to read the energy of animals, and are very much in tune with other sentient beings that are unable to speak. Many people with a heightened psychic sense keep dogs or cats.
22. While some people find graveyards and the idea of death very scary, clairsentient people have a tendency to be at peace with such things because they innately understand that there are greater vibrations at play.
23. You often think or dream of people and then bump into them not long after.
24. Some clairsentient people can feel the physical and emotional pain of others. You may find yourself crying for others, even people you don't know but have seen their story on the news, for example.
25. You are drawn to spiritual practices such as meditation, hypnosis, shamanism, etc.
What to Do with Your Clairsentience?
Obviously you don't to have experienced all of these signs to be clairsentient, and you may be right at the beginning of your journey and still unsure of where you sit on the spectrum of clairsentience.
But undoubtedly, as you embrace this gift you will begin to identify with more signs in the list.
The obvious question now is what do you do next? And the simple answer is that you should embrace this gift.
It really is a positive gift and something that you can share with the world. You can continue to help people through your intuition and ability to read people, situations, and environments.
You are a sensitive, intuitive soul that has the potential to lead people to make better choices and decisions in life. This can truly change the course of people's lives.
You should enhance your energy potential through the spiritual endeavors that most interest you. For example:
- Start a daily meditation practice
- Learn more about spirit guides and clairvoyance
- Try some third eye activation techniques
- Try telepathy
- Attempt lucid dreaming or astral projection
But a basic level you can simply start accepting that you have this gift and using it more.
For example, when you do walk into a room full of people and pick up on some energy, instead of simply ignoring the feeling and attempting to carry on with the social encounters like everyone else, accept that feeling and explore it further.
Allow yourself to connect with that energy and really try to read it. You will find that if you stay in the present moment and simply become aware of the energy, you will effortlessly be able to connect and your psychic sense will take over your physical sense.
Some say that clairsentience enables you to communicate with spirit animals, angels, guides, and those who have crossed over to the other side. I'm not sure of those things, and indeed after 150 years science still can't find proof of the paranormal (1).
But one thing is for sure; some of us have an intuition that runs deeper than can be explained. By exploring this intuitive gift you will develop a deeper connection with life itself, with Mother Nature and the energy of the universe. And one thing science does know is that life exists through energy (2).
