Clairsentience 101!


What is Clairsentience?

Clairsentience is the ability to sense and feel the energy! The word clairsentience comes from the combination of the French word “clair” meaning clear and the Latin word “sentiēns” meaning feeling or perceiving with the senses. That being said, clairsentience means the ability to feel, sense, and perceive clearly.

Clairsentience and Energy

Now that you know what the word clairsentience means you must understand how it is applied from an energy standpoint.

With clairsentience, we can use it to sense and feel the energy of people and those in Spirit too!

Everyone that you encounter is emitting a certain frequency or vibrations through their thoughts, personalities, moods, emotions, and state of mind, and that wavelength of energy is contained in a person’s aura. Pam Oslie of Aura Colors defines an aura as the energy radiating from an individual.

So when you feel the energy of a room of people you are essentially picking up the energy emitted from their auras. You are doing this through clairsentience.

This is why we tend to automatically gravitate to certain people and not to certain others. It is not personal it just means our auric energy vibration is more congruent with certain energies.

Clairsentience and Psychic

Clairsentience is often associated with psychic ability! Why?

When you are around someone you can pick up their energies. You are doing this from a psychic sense because we are all antennas thus we are all psychic to a certain degree. How psychic and clairsentient we depend on how sensitive we are to energies. Essentially our antennas are picking up vibrational energies of someone’s auric energy field which is how the psychic sense is activated.

So when you sense or perceive things about an individual such as their mood, personality, state of mind, character, etc. you are connecting psychically with them.

You often will get certain specifics that you would have not know about someone as a result of your heightened ability to feel the energy of others.

Some of these specifics could be from immediately sensing that someone is dealing with a divorce, excited about traveling to a specific city or geographical location, making a move and you having a feeling of the area, expecting a new child, recently fallen in love, received an acceptance letter, etc.

The more you utilize your sensing ability the more your psychic ability will develop and the more specific details you will receive from the energies of others.

Clairsentience and Mediumship

Not only can you feel the energies of the living but also those in Spirit. The concept is the same as in sensing the energy of those living except you’re not connecting with the aura of those in Spirit but their vibrational energy.

Remember everything in the Universe is made up of energy! Spirit is no different!

In mediumship, your main and strongest sense that is the most active is the ability to feel those who are in Spirit.

You can evidentially receive lots of factual information from someone in the spirit world. Often clairsentience is dismissed or overlooked in mediumship by clairvoyance (clear seeing) and clairaudience (clear hearing). This is because it is human nature to go with our sense of sight and hearing to communicate.

What we disregard in mediumship with feeling and sensing Spirit is that this sense contains plenty of bread crumbs and nuggets of information about the person in Spirit. It is advantageous for us to use clairsentience when connecting with someone in Spirit because we can get a loved one’s gender, personality, range of age, character, profession, cause of passing, medical issues, habits, mannerisms, physical traits, and even their names just to name a few things.

The aim is mediumship is to prove the continuity of life and with clear sensing, you are getting the bulk of who they were once upon a time ago.

Expanding Your Clairsentience

Whether you want to further develop your psychic or mediumistic sense of clairsentience you need to know that day-to-day use will cultivate that growth.

Try feeling out the next conversation you have with a friend or a partner. What is their state of mind or what is the character like of the new employee at work? It is these little things you perceive subtly that will make the difference with your clairsentience.

Think of it a like a muscle that hasn’t been worked on regularly at the gym. At first, it will come off as weak but with enough time and devotion that muscle will become strong and dependable. Look at your clairsentience in the same manner.

Nikola Tesla once said, “If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency, and vibration.”
