We’ve all been there, in that space where you can’t shake someone from your head.
Those unwanted intrusive thoughts that keep popping up over a spat with a sibling, or long term family drama with a parent. Perhaps it’s an unresolved romantic relationship occupying your mental real-estate, or a long-term friend who has wounded you. You may be stuck in workplace drama, surrounded by difficult administrators, narcissistic coworkers, or challenging clients. Or maybe someone from your childhood has been living in your headspace, rent-free for the last 30 years!
Any situationship or relationship that stirs up feelings of distress, disappointment, or even trauma can be addressed in a cord cutting session.
Cord cutting sessions happen to be my favorite intuitive healing practice as a clinician, and as a client nothing makes me more light and clear-headed!
So, what are cord cutting sessions and how do they work?Continue reading “Cutting Cords”
Most of us are familiar with the terms clairvoyance or clairaudience. These are commonly recognized spiritual, psychic, or intuitive senses. But, how familiar are you with clairgustance? Clairalience?
Our body relies on our five main senses in the 3-D to take in information and make sense of the environment around us. Our spirit senses operate much in the same manner. Often, your strongest day-to-day sense is mirrored in your psychic senses. For instance, an artist is visual, relying on their eyes to create. Their strongest spirit sense is often clairvoyance, or “clear seeing.” A musician uses their ears, and is likely clairaudient or uses their sense of “clear hearing” to perceive information that is from outside and unseen stimuli.
To learn more about clairvoyance, clairaudience, clairsentience, or claircognizance, check out the link to those intuitive development topics!
Clairgustance and clairalience function in much the same way as their sister senses do. Because they have to do with our sense of smell and taste, they are often overlooked, in favor of the more bombastic senses like clairvoyance. However, these two senses can be absolutely huge for folks who have developed them, providing a rich source of intuitive and psychic information for those who use them.
Clairalience and clairgustance tend to work in tandem with one another to provide information to the intuitive. Clairgustance roughly means “clear tasting.” A clairgustant will taste distinct flavors from seemingly nowhere. These tastes may be related to a deceased loved one’s favorite dishes, or for chefs, they could be clues and guidance about what spices or sauces to include in cooking, what produce to purchase at the grocery store, or even what dishes to prepare for upcoming events. Sometimes mediums will receive information on how someone passes by identifying very particular tastes intuitively.
Clairalience has to do with “clear smelling.” A person who is clairailent acquires intuitive information from their sense of smell. Someone gifted with clairalience likely has a highly-developed sense of smell.
Clairalients may rely on this in their daily occupation- or enjoy using it in hobbies. Creating perfumes or essential oil blends, scented soaps, or candles. They may also be into cooking, too! These intuitives receive information from deceased individuals and associated scents: the smell of an aunt’s perfume, grandpa’s tobacco smoke, granny’s house and her baking. They may also receive information on how to improve something around them, specific essential oils to use in a diffuser or in cleaning products, which shampoo to buy, or even which friend to check in with when they smell their perfume, soap, or cologne.
This sense is strongly tied with memory and emotion due to the way our brains process scent. Think about clairalience and how it works with our animal companions, how some dogs can use their sense of smell to scent out illness or disease in humans. This is something that strong clairalients can do themselves!
If you receive random smells or taste flavors unexpectedly, there is a good chance that is your clairgustance or clairalience coming through! Also, if you are someone who is a chef, a baker, someone who likes to cook, a sommelier, a perfume maker-these might be the occupations of someone who has either of these intuitive gifts.
For many people, clairgustance and clairalience provide a pleasant rounding out of intuitive abilities. A little extra something to provide clients with, some validation that their loved one is nearby. For others, these gifts are crystal clear, diamond dazzling, and a huge part of what they do each and every day.
How can you boost your clairalience or clairgustance?
- Play guessing games! Try guessing ingredients in perfumes, or in prepared dishes. When I taught school, we’d use unmarked film canisters with cotton balls inside for a little science experiment. Each cotton ball would contain drops of an essential oil that the students would try to identify. It was a great way to encourage them to rely on their sense of smell by taking the visual component out of it. You could easily replicate this experiment with a little help from a friend. Let someone else do the cooking for the night! Guess what’s for dinner, and what spices were used.
- Be careful with your senses…don’t use scented products yourself. Skip the laundry detergent and fabric softener with strong scents and opt for fragrance-free. This will remove one layer of extra scent that your nose has to contend with. Go light on the salt or sugar in your food as well. You don’t want to use too much of any one thing that will overpower your palate. (Hot sauce lovers, I’m looking at you!) You want balance with flavor and an ability to easily taste that balance. Over salting can overpower your sense of taste.
- Visualization is always a beautiful practice for intuitive development. Get your hands on a magazine and flip through to a random page. (Digital works fine, too.) Look for an image that you can clearly get a scent from. Close your eyes and picture yourself in the space. What is going on around you? Is there a campfire? What does that smell like? Keep flipping and scent sampling. You can also have a friend write down ten different things for you to smell and repeat this exercise with their list. If they are your intuitive development partner, you can do the same for them! Try this exercise with food and flavor.
- Speaking of intuitive development; you can work with a partner or small group by tuning into others’ energy and record what information comes through. Center yourself as you’d ordinarily do, and focus on one individual. See what impressions come through when you focus on your senses. Colors? Sounds? Smells? Tastes? Feelings? This is a very fun exercise to do with a few people, as you may receive some validation on your intuitive hits. You don’t need to be in the same room or even the same place. Give it a shot via technology. Your intuitive development pals don’t need to be living in the same city or same state for you to practice together!
- Be mindful as you go through your day. The more you engage your whole sensory system when you are eating, or smelling, the more you build up your clairgustant and clairalient dictionary. Your guides will lean into that to help you make sense of messages that need to come through.

One of the questions I get asked frequently as an intuitive is: how can I develop my psychic senses? I’ve written several articles about other clairs. Today, the focus is on development of clairaudience or clear hearing.
To recap, the psychic sense of clairaudience often happens inside the brain as an intrusive thought, or in more rare cases, outside the ear as we would typically process hearing. Usually the latter happens when our guides really want our attention.

Fall, leaves, fall; die, flowers, away;
Lengthen night and shorten day;
Every leaf speaks bliss to me
Fluttering from the autumn tree.
I shall smile when wreaths of snow
Blossom where the rose should grow;
I shall sing when night’s decay
Ushers in a drearier day.
We’ve crossed the threshold in the Northern Hemisphere.Continue reading “Fall, Leaves, Fall”
I was a total rock hound as a kid. I remember the amazing gifts sent from my aunt and uncle; wall hangings with rainbows made of crystal studded pipe cleaners, little heart-shaped rocks embellished with lavender springs and tiny quartz points. When we visited my relatives in Montana, I was enamored in the rock stores. Our big family vacation out west was when I collected my first piece of amethyst. I still have it.
As a teenager I moved away from crystals and gravitated toward people. I remember a friend pressing a piece of rose quartz into my palm and asking me to feel the essence of the rock.
I thought she was a nut.
Looking back, she was probably telling me I needed a bit more love in my life!
At this juncture of my life, I am proud to say that yes, I can feel the essence of that rock. I have embraced crystals and their magic, and I hope to share some of their magic with you!Continue reading “Working with Crystals: The Magic of Crystal Grids”
Want to boost your psychic sense of clairsentience? Clairsentience is the psychic sense known as “clear feeling.” This is the third part of a series of posts on clairsentience. In part one, I introduced how energy follows the path of least resistance. For clairsentients, this includes sensing physiological reactions in the body as well as experiencing emotions in response to an outside and unseen stimulus. In part two, I shared 25 signs that you might be clairsentient, and not realize it! In this final post on clairsentience, I am going to share some tips and practices to help you develop the gift of your psychic feeling.Continue reading “How to Become More Clairsentient”
Clairsentience is the psychic sense known as “clear feeling.” In the first post on this clair, I mentioned how energy follows the path of least resistance. For clairsentients, this includes sensing physiological reactions in the body as well as experiencing emotions in response to an outside and unseen stimulus. In Part 2, we are going to review 25 signs that you might be clairsentient.
- You identify as sensitive.
How often have you heard, “you’re too sensitive?” Too many to count? This phrase is often shared by others as a way to highlight your uniqueness (and probably not in a kind way). Sometimes you feel like it’s all too overwhelming, and other times you embrace your empathic nature. Either way, you FEEL.
You feel all the things. People’s emotions, the drama that went down in the conference room before you walked in, the news, break-up ballads, commercials, causes, other folks’ eyes on you. You are a highly sensitive person (HSP) all the way around.
2. You are observant.
Whatever its origins, you are a watcher. You would have been the lookout who caught the first whiff of danger for our paleolithic ancestors. Cliff! Saber-tooth cat! You are observant of people’s behavior and notice tiny details in your environment that others overlook.
3. You may identify as an introvert.
You recharge your batteries during alone time. Being on your own helps bring you some clarity while other people’s stuff gets cleared out from your aura during quiet time. You may also need more time alone after energy clearing to rebalance and replenish your energy supply. Oh hello, there you are!
4. People spill the tea.
You have folks knocking on your door, wanting to share their latest family drama. You may find getting work done a challenge because you are constantly interrupted by colleagues coming to chat with you. Strangers may stop you on the bus to tell you about their lives. By holding space for others, you are gifting them a healing with your clairsentience, and your presence. You may wind up learning way more about people than you are comfortable with!
5. You have an open mind.
You try to hear all sides of a situation and not judge. It’s part of what makes you a great listener. Some folks may get upset because you don’t land on the side of the fence that they want you to. You do your best to truly understand others regardless.Continue reading “Are you Clairsentient? -25 Signs you can feel”
Clairsentience is the most natural, grounding, and enriching intuitive sense I’ve worked with. Perhaps because it is so helpful in fostering relationships with others in daily life, as well as connecting us to other unseen energy frequencies. At its heart, clairsentience is very human.
Of all the clairs, this psychic sense is one of the simpler ones to access.
However, it’s important to remember that when developing your psychic skills, energy follows the path of least resistance. (So, it may not be for everyone.)
What is clairsentience?
Clairsentience in psychic circles is defined as “clear feeling.” In my book that’s both a physical sensation and an emotional feeling. Some folks may separate the two, but in my experience clairsentience can be defined as when I feel physiological reactions in my body and in my emotions, to things that are unseen and outside of myself.
Let’s take that a step further. Someone who experiences clairsentience is known as a clairsentient. They may also call themselves an empath. This means they are incredibly empathetic, a big feeler, and probably a huge softie at heart. Empaths or clairsentients can feel energies outside of themselves through emotions and sensations in their physical bodies.Continue reading “What does it feel like to be Clairsentient?”
The sweet taste of a ripe mango. The hoot of an owl. Sunrise on a mountaintop. A massage. The scent of your grandma’s perfume.
We take in multitudes of sensory information from our environment via our five senses. Our five senses work in tandem with our brains, and messages in our cells, to react in pleasure or pain to stimuli around us. This biological system that helps keep us safe from threats by gathering information from the world around us, also serves to keep us grounded in our bodily human escapades, and combined with our cognition, provides us with a gamut of experiences that enrich our human lives.
The Other Side of the Mirror
We have spirit senses that mirror the earthly and bodily senses too. These senses are often referred to in new age terminology as “clairs,” from the french word, clair or “clear.” Like our five senses, they help us make meaning of stimuli; they can be used to keep us safe and grounded, allow us to meaningfully connect with others, and they help to enrich our daily human adventures.
Many folks may recognize some of these terms, either from pop culture as plot devices in movies, TV shows, or novels, from friends or family- or perhaps from their own psychic exploration.Continue reading “Intuition 101: We all can connect”
