In today's article I explore clairsentience, the subtle sense and gift of clear feeling and how to unlock this clair to improve your mediumship experience.
Clairsentience is one of the top four clairs alive and at work during mediumship, the others being clairvoyance, clairaudience, claircognizance. I have also written about another clair known as clairalience, the spirit sense of clear smelling. The clairs for smell and taste, though distinctive do tend to nest under the gift of clairsentience.
How clairsentients receive information from spirit:
The information that comes in via clairsentience is perceived by the medium through her feeling capacity. She feels the energy that spirit is sending her. This can happen in several ways: as if through her own emotions (empathically), through the experience of subtle (and sometimes not so subtle) physical sensations and / or through a 'gut' feeling, a sensation in the gut that acts as a signal or a sign for the medium about something to do with the spirit or that her impression from the spirit is bang on or correct, for example.
If a spirit is trying to convey that he died from a heart attack he might impress the medium through her clairsentience in such a way that she feels drawn to her chest or heart area and feels a brief, subtle tension or restriction in that area.
Or a spirit who was prone to depression might send the feeling of being down or sad so that the medium feels or experiences it through her own emotional capacity. She'll feel sad or down as a way of understanding what spirit is sending her.
Signs you are a natural clairsentient:
Some of the signs that you have an active gift of clairsentience include:
You get the picture. Through clairsentience, rather than seeing, hearing or knowing something, you feel it!
We are all clairsentient to one degree or another. Most of us are way more clairsentient than we may think.
Clairsentience can absolutely be nurtured and developed in folks who either doubt they have this gift or want to develop it in order to expand their clair abilities to receive more information and better impressions during mediumship.
I am also going to tell you that clairsentience is the heart of the mediumship experience. So if you don't already access this aspect of your mediumship abilities, this particular clair, I strongly suggest that you consider doing so.
Why? Because it has been my experience that the link created with spirit during mediumship is solidified through clairsentience.
Once you can palpably feel the link with spirit then you are on your way!
Once you and spirit 'get' each other at the felt level the door to communication with that spirit blows wide open.
Once you touch each others hearts you're on full throttle.
Let's just say your link with that spirit gets kicked into high gear...!
The best way to understand this is through the example of getting to know someone. Your experience of that person at the seeing, hearing and thinking level can bring a lot to light about who he or she is and how you might fit together. However, once you make a connection that is experienced at a felt level, at a heart level, then your connection with this person shifts into something much deeper, stronger, more solid and more real.
Animal communication is another example of full on clairsentience at work. Communicating with animals is all about connecting at the heart level. Once this happens the floodgates to communication with that animal blow wide open!
It is the same with spirit.
How to unlock your clairsentience:
The first and best way to develop and hone your clairsentience is to trust in then act (if necessary) on your gut feelings. Start small. Act on one gut feeling then see where that takes you. When you experience a gut feeling about someone or something, if you can say it out loud to yourself immediately or very soon after, then do so. This brings your awareness and attention to your feeling. Then take the next steps you'd take if you were to heed that feeling. Go ahead, be brave and see where this goes.
Gauge the results by keeping track of what it was you felt, how you acted on those feelings and what happened as a result of all of that by writing about these experiences in a journal so you can track your progress.
Here are a few more ways to unlock and hone that clairsentience of yours:
If you are developing your mediumship or already doing readings etc. using your clairvoyance, clairaudience and / or claircognizance try to add your clairsentience into the mix by employing the above suggestions in your readings. I bet that over time you'll notice a difference!
