Do you know when things happen even before you hear about them? Are you able to sniff our people’s true intentions? Do you get the unmistakable feeling that you should or should not do something?
We are all born with some intuition, or ‘sixth sense’ with which we can interpret the world beyond our physical senses. Tapping into that and knowing how to use it is a power available to us all.
The most common of these intuitions are: clairvoyance, clairaudience, clairsentience, and claicognizance.
How Each Spiritual Sense Works:
Clairvoyance (Clear Seeing) is the ability to foresee events, view auras, and discern premonitions. Someone who is strong in this sense may be known to ‘see through people.’ They may have prophetic dreams and claim to see auras or spirits. In addition, clairvoyant people are visually creative, and can remember faces and physical details easily.
Clairaudience (Clear Hearing) is the ability to hear voices and messages from the spiritual plane. One who has a strong clairaudience can discern a deeper meaning behind the words one might speak. They often hear ringing or buzzing in their ears, and are quite sensitive to sounds around them. They are also phone talkers and auditory learners.
Clairsentience (Clear Feeling) is the ability to derive feelings in someone. They can often sense trouble or wrongness in another’s life. Clairsentient people are prone to goosebumps and inexplicable tingling or other sensations.
Often, these people are described as empathetic, tuning into the emotions of someone else and feeling them as well. These people have strong gut feelings they have no choice but to follow, and can get drained easily in large groups.
Claircognizance (Clear Knowing) is the feeling of “knowing” without any physical evidence or proof. Often the claircognizant will have strong deja vu or receive sudden insights about the past, present or future.
They will at times know what someone will say before saying it, and can converse on a wide range of topics even if they have no knowledge base behind them. They are analytical and good at understanding abstract problems.
Figuring Out Your Strong Point:
We probably all have a combination of these gifts, but there is usually one that will stand strongest in each individual. Among the four, clairsentience and claircognizance are the most common. However, there are some exercises to derive your strongest ability.
1.) If You Think You are Clairvoyant:
Close your eyes and visualize what your body looks like right now. For example, is it lying down or sitting up? What clothes are you wearing, and what is the expression on your face? Try to formulate a clear picture. If you are able to do this easily and with attention to great detail, there is a good chance that you are strongly clairvoyant.
2.) If You Think You are Clairaudient:
Close your eyes and pay close attention to the sounds around you. Then start to slowly dull them until you can hear the quiet that exists behind the cacophony. After you’ve found the underlying universal ‘hum,’ tune into the sound of your breath and heartbeat. This is difficult and can take a few days to perfect, but if you are able to complete this practice, then you are likely clairaudient.
3.) If You Think You are Clairsentient:
Start the investigation by taking a photo of someone you don’t know, but that someone close to you knows. Try to get in touch with how you feel when you look at the picture. Is this person trustworthy? What might parts o ftheir personality be? Write down your answers then consult with the mutual friend.
This exercise also works with objects, particularly from secondhand stores. Pick out an object and see if you can discern something about its former owner. If these exercises come easily to you, then your strong suit is likely clairsentience.
4.) If You Think You are Claircognizant:
Take a pencil and paper and, requesting guidance from your higher self, write down a question. Also jot down whatever thoughts come into your head. Try to make it as natural as possible without your mind getting involved. Try not to stop writing, even if you lose this connection with your higher self. Keep practicing and eventually your claircognizant ability will take over. If you receive specific or pertinent messages, the chances are that this ability is strong in you.
This deciphering of your spiritual sense can help you to better tune in and strengthen your inner gifts. These spiritual powers are extraordinarily helpful, and when they are nurtured you can begin to really offer yourself, and the world, something truly special!
