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!
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.
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.
