What Are the 6 Clair Senses?

What Are the 6 Clair Senses?

The 6 Clair Senses Broken Down

The Clair senses are a form of extrasensory perception (ESP) that refer to the ability to perceive information beyond the five physical senses. These abilities are also sometimes known as second sight or the sixth sense.

1. Clairvoyants

Clairvoyance is the ability to see beyond the five senses. It is the ability to see things that are not physically present. Clairvoyants can see visions, images, and symbols—they can also receive messages through their dreams or hunches. Clairvoyants can be extremely helpful when providing guidance and support for an individual.

Their ability to see events that have not yet happened can help you make decisions about your future or to understand what is happening in the present. Clairvoyants can also provide comfort and reassurance to those who are grieving by helping them to communicate with loved ones who have passed away.

Some clairvoyants work with the help of spirit guides, while others may see visions that come to them spontaneously. Many clairvoyants have other psychic abilities, such as clairsentience (clear feeling) or clairaudience (clear hearing).

How Do I Know If I Am Clairvoyant?

There are many ways to find out if you are clairvoyant. Have you ever had any of the following experiences?

1. Sensed the presence of a spirit guide.

2. Seen images or symbols in your mind’s eye.

3. Had prophetic dreams.

4. Knew things without knowing how you knew them.

5. Felt a strong connection to nature or the universe.

If you have ever experienced one or more of these, you may have latent psychic abilities.

How Can I Develop My Clairvoyant Abilities?

There are many ways to develop your clairvoyance.

Meditation: Meditation is a great way to clear your mind and focus your thoughts. Meditation can also help you to connect with your higher self and develop your psychic abilities.

Visualisation: Visualisation is a great way to develop your clairvoyance. By picturing images in your mind, you can see them more clearly.

Dream Work: Dream work can help you interpret the messages you receive in your dreams—this can be a great way to gain insights into your life and uncover hidden meanings.

Have an Open Mind: It is essential to keep an open mind when exploring your psychic abilities. Be open to new experiences and be willing to try new things.

Practice: The more you practice using your clairvoyance, the stronger it will become. There are many ways to practice, such as keeping a journal of your experiences or doing readings for others.

2. Clairaudients

Clairaudients are psychics who can hear messages and sounds happening on far-off lands or in the spirit world—this is one of the rarest psychic abilities.

Clairaudients usually have a strong inner voice and may even hear multiple voices simultaneously. These voices could be giving them warnings, prophecies, or general information—clairaudients may also hear music or other sounds from the spirit world.

Discovering Your Clairaudient Abilities

If you think you may be clairaudient, pay attention to the inner voice that speaks to you. Does it give you helpful information? Does it warn you of danger? If so, you may be able to use your clairaudient ability to help others.

If you are wondering if you are clairaudient, there are some signs that you can look out for. Clairaudience is the ability to hear spirit guides, angels, and other higher-dimensional beings. Here are five signs that you may be clairaudient:

1. You often hear faint/strange voices when no one is around.

2. You tend to daydream or have a lot of imaginative thoughts.

3. You frequently have strong gut feelings/hunches about things.

4. You are drawn to certain sounds, such as music or nature sounds.

5. People have told you that you have the gift of gab or are very articulate.

If you identify with any of these signs, you may be clairaudient. To develop your clairaudience further, you can try meditating or doing energy work to clear any blockages in your chakras. You may also want to consider working with a spiritual mentor or teacher who can help you hone your skills.

You can also try journaling or using affirmations to increase your inner hearing. Remember, all it takes is practice; soon, you will be hearing messages from the other side loud and clear!

3. Clairsentients

Clairsentients have extrasensory perception (ESP), the ability to gather information beyond what is available through the five senses. For example, a clairsentient might suddenly know that someone is in danger or receive a psychic impression of an event about to occur. Clairsentients often work as psychics or mediums, using their abilities to provide intuitive readings or communicate with those who have passed on.

Not all clairsentients experience their abilities in the same way. Some receive strong impressions or knowings, while others may get a subtle feeling about something. Some people may be aware of their abilities from an early age, while others only discover them later in life. There is no right or wrong way to experience clairsentience.

If you think you might be clairsentient, you can do a few things to develop your abilities:

Meditation: Practicing meditation/relaxation techniques can help clear your mind and make it easier to receive psychic impressions.

Keep a Journal: Keep a journal to record any intuitive insights or dreams that you have.

4. Clairempaths

Clairempaths are similar to clairsentients; however, empaths will experience the things (emotions, pain, pleasure) that other people are going through.

Clairempathy is a relatively rare ability, and it is not well understood—it is a form of extrasensory perception (ESP) in which a person can sense the emotions and feelings of another person. It is also sometimes referred to as emotional telepathy.

Clairempathy is different from empathy, which is the ability to understand and share the emotions and feelings of another person. Clairempathy is a psychic ability that allows people to feel/experience the emotions of others without using any other senses.

While some people may be born with the ability of clairempathy, others may develop it later in life. There are many ways people can develop clairempathy, including:

Taking on the Emotions of Others: This is the most common way that people with clairempathy start to take on the emotions of others. When someone around them feels strong emotions, they may start to feel those same emotions themselves.

Reading Facial Expressions: People with clairempathy abilities tend to be very good at reading facial expressions and body language—this can help them understand how someone is feeling without them having to say anything.

Sensing Energy: Some people with clairempathy abilities can sense the energy of others—this can help them to understand what someone is feeling even if they are not showing any outward signs.

If you think you have clairempathy, you must find a working method that works for you—there is no right or wrong way to do this. Trust your instincts and go with what feels right. Clairempathy is a rare ability that can be both a blessing and a curse:

Clairempathy as a Blessing: Clairempathy is a blessing because it allows people to connect with others on a deeper level and understand their emotions.

Clairempathy as a Curse: Clairempathy is a curse because it can be overwhelming for people who are constantly bombarded with the emotions of others.

If you think you are a clairempath, you must find ways to protect yourself from the negative emotions of others.

Meditation: Meditation can help you to clear your mind and focus on your own emotions.

Visualisation: Visualisation can help you to create a shield around yourself that will protect you from the emotions of others.

Earthing: Earthing is a technique in which you connect your body to the ground to ground yourself and release excess energy.

5. Claircognizants

Claircognizants can know things instantaneously. Claircognizant psychics receive information in the form of downloads, where they just know something without being able to explain how they know it.

Many people experience claircognizance but do not realise it. For example, you might have a hunch that you should take a different route to work but do not know why, so you follow your intuition, and it turns out there was an accident on your usual route—this is claircognizance at work!

If you think you might be claircognizant, here are some common signs to look out for:

1. You have a lot of gut feelings/hunches that later turn out to be true.

2. You know things without being able to explain how you know them.

3. You have a strong sense of intuition.

4. You often find yourself saying, 'I knew that was going to happen.'

If you are wondering how to develop your claircognizant abilities, the good news is that there are a few things you can do:

Pay Attention to Your Dreams: Because claircognizance is all about knowing, you may find that you receive information in your dreams. It is important to pay attention and keep a dream journal so you can look back and see if any patterns emerge.

Trust your Intuition: As a Claircognizant, you have a strong sense of intuition, so it is important to trust it. If you have a hunch about something, go with it and see what happens.

Meditate: Meditation is a great way to clear your mind and focus on your intuition. Meditating with crystals, such as amethyst or sodalite, can be very helpful too.

Keep a Journal: Journaling is a great way to track the information you receive through your claircognizant ability. You may find that you start receiving information more frequently once you start paying attention to it and writing it down.

If you think you might be Claircognizant, why not give some of these tips a try and see how you get on? There is nothing to lose, and you may find that you start receiving information in new and exciting ways!

6. Clairalience

Clairalience is the ability to smell things. Sometimes, Clairalient psychics pick up on a loved one’s scent or another smell that is linked to them. For example, perhaps the person who now resides in the spirit world enjoyed long walks on the beach. In this case, the psychic will smell the seaside when they forge a connection with this individual. Doing this allows the psychic to build a clearer picture of the person in question and perhaps even get some insight into their personality.

Of course, not all smells are going to be pleasant. Sometimes clairalience can pick up on negative smells, such as the odour of illness/death—this can be distressing for a psychic; it is important to remember that these smells are not necessarily indicative of anything bad.

If you think you may have clairalient abilities, there are a few things that you can do to hone these abilities.

Meditation: This will help to still your mind and allow you to focus more clearly on any smells you may pick up on.

Be Open-Minded: It is important to be as open-minded as possible when interpreting the meanings of smells. Just because you pick up on a particular scent does not mean it has great significance.

If you find that you regularly pick up on smells you cannot explain, it is important to trust your instincts. If a particular smell makes you uneasy/worried, there is a good reason for this. It is also worth bearing in mind that clairalience is often linked to other psychic abilities, such as clairsentience.
