Embrace Your Intuition: Understanding 7 Clair-Senses


It's not uncommon to feel confused about the direction to take in life when you have a wealth of untapped wisdom within you.

Your soul holds the answers you seek, patiently waiting to be heard, seen, and felt. My aim is to empower you to trust your unique style of channeling by honing the incredible skill.

During a session with a client, we delved into the realm of clairsenses and the fascinating ways in which we can perceive information beyond the physical realm. The client, a tarot reader, expressed her confusion when receiving intuitive messages and sensations during her readings. She described experiencing rushes of energy in her stomach, throat, and third eye, but didn't fully understand their meaning. This client's journey serves as a prime example of having a channeling style without fully realizing it, highlighting the importance of recognizing and developing our clairsenses; the way we receive messages from our Higher Selves, or Universe.

In this blog, we will explore the seven clairsenses, providing examples and insights to help you recognize which one(s) you possess.

By the way- "Claire" is the latin word for "clear" or "bright."

Here we go!

1. Clairvoyance - Clear Vision:

Clairvoyance, or psychic sight, is one of the most well-known clairesenses. It involves seeing images, scenes, or symbols in your mind's eye, often during conversations or when seeking guidance. For instance, you might visualize a vivid image related to a question asked, or witness a story unfolding as someone speaks to you. Many people possess this clairsense, and it often connects to intuitive dreams or vivid imagination.

2. Clairgustance - Clear Taste:

Lesser known but equally fascinating is clairgustance, the ability to orally detect psychic information. With this clairsense, you might experience tastes or flavors that have no physical source. For instance, you could suddenly taste a particular flavor in your mouth without any external stimuli. This can be a powerful tool in psychic work, where the taste may provide insights or messages regarding a situation or person.

3. Clairaudience - Clear Hearing:

Clairaudience involves the clear sense of hearing psychic information. This can manifest as hearing phrases, song lyrics, or quotes that repeatedly play in your mind. The words you hear might provide guidance or hold deeper meaning, resonating with your current life situation. Additionally, clairaudience can manifest as a profound understanding when someone speaks to you, or even as hearing words or messages in your dreams. If you use music to process information and feel a deep connection to music, you may be a clairaudient! Pay attention to the messages that repeatedly catch your ear, as they often carry valuable insights.

4. Claircognizance - Clear Knowing:

Claircognizance refers to clear-knowing or psychic insight. It involves suddenly and instinctively understanding something without conscious reasoning. You may receive information or answers seemingly out of the blue, as if they were downlo

aded into your mind. This clairsense often provides instant clarity, guiding you to make decisions or offer profound insights to others. It's a powerful gift that can be further developed through honing your intuition and trusting your inner wisdom.

5. Clairsentience - Clear Feeling:

Clairsentience, also known as clairempathy, involves feeling psychic information either emotionally or through physical sensations in the body. If you possess this clairsense, you might empathetically pick up on other people's emotions, feeling them as if they were your own. For example, you may suddenly feel intense sadness, frustration, or confusion when interacting with someone, without understanding why. It's essential to learn to discern between your own emotions and those you're sensing from others. Clairsentience can also manifest as physical sensations, such as tingling, heat, or a sense of heaviness, providing valuable insights during energy work or intuitive healing.

*FYI, I think we should call the ability to sense through our body as “Claiecorpuscience” - Corpus being the latin word for “body” , to distinguish between feeling in the body, and feeling in the emotions.

6. Clairtangency - Clear Touch:

Clairtangency is the ability to gain psychic information through touch. When you come into contact with an object or person, you might receive intuitive impressions or knowledge about its history or significance. It's as if you're downloading information about the item or individual by simply touching them. This clairsense can be helpful in understanding the energies associated with certain objects or people, allowing you to tap into their stories or journey. The character “Wednesday Adams” from the show Wednesday is a classic example.

7. Clairolfactance - Clear Smell:

Clairolfactance involves the ability to psychically detect scents or smells that have no physical source. You might suddenly catch a whiff of a distinct fragrance or experience an odor that holds symbolic meaning or triggers memories. Clairsalience can provide insights or validations, particularly when the scent carries personal significance or is associated with a specific event or individual.

Discovering Your Clairesenses:

Now that we have explored the seven clairesenses, take a moment to reflect on which ones resonate with you. It's common to have one or two predominant styles, but it's also possible to possess multiple spiritual gifts across different clairesenses, and different healing capacities.

Understanding these gifts will help you recognize and develop your unique channeling style, enabling you to navigate the messages from your soul more effectively.


Each and every one of us possesses spiritual gifts, channeling styles, and clair

senses that provide a direct connection to universal consciousness. Regardless of who you are or where you come from, you have the innate ability to receive profound insights and guidance from your soul and spirit. However, many individuals find themselves at a loss when it comes to understanding and utilizing the information they receive.

-When you receive initial information, do you know how to connect the dots?

-Do you know what to do or say next?
