Clairsentience: Feeling Spirits

What Is Clairsentience?

When we talk of instinct, hunches and gut feelings we are often referring to one distinct area of psychic awareness: the skills of clairsentience. This word means ‘clear feeling’. You experience emotions and sensations of other people or spirits as though they are happening to you. The abilities commonly described as clairsentience are simply natural extensions of our intuition. We have all experienced times when our intuition was acute and we are able to listen to it and respond accordingly. Your intuition tells you that it would be a good time to telephone a friend; you have a 'gut feeling' that she is in need of some support and, before you have walked across the room to pick up the telephone, it starts ringing. There are numerous examples of good choices that we make through listening effectively to our intuition.

Clairsentience is particularly common, especially amongst women and children who are generally more emotionally-based than men. As children we are open intuitively and emotionally; then, as we grow, we learn to shut out these aspects of our awareness. Boys and men are told they have to be logical and dispassionate and regard emotional sensitivity as a bad thing. To develop good clairsentience we need to unlearn the judgements and restrictions that were applied to us when we were growing up and become more emotionally and intuitively 'vulnerable'.

Mediumship And Clairsentience

When a clairsentient medium makes contact with a spirit she will experience the emotions and feelings of that spirit. For example, she may know how the person died because she feels pain in the same area of the body. Psychometry is another form of clairsentience - that is, when you can pick up sensations from an object belonging to someone. Police forces sometimes use the help of an experienced sensitive to help solve mysterious crimes in this way.

It's All In The Mind, Right?

We often dismiss our psychic abilities by telling ourselves that we are imagining things. Many of us regard our imagination as something that is unreal or illusory. A well-developed imagination however is very important for our psychic development as it provides us with an effective bridge to valuable psychic information as well as an abundance of creative energy and ability. To develop psychically you need to give yourself permission to dream, fantasize and play before allowing your rational mind to do the necessary job of sorting, assessing and figuring out how to act upon the information that you receive.


When someone dies a family member or friend may experience a smell that reminds them of their deceased loved one. It may be the smell of cigarettes if the person smoked or a sudden whiff of roses if the person was a keen gardener. There is no immediate reason for this smell, although the logical mind will try to explain it away. This is the spirit of a loved trying to contact those they love to send a message. Pets are just as clever. We lost our beloved family cat recently and every so often there is an unmistakable ‘cat smell’ in the living room. We have no other cats in the house to explain it. I just know it our pussycat sending her love.

Developing Your Clairsentient Skills

Here are some daily affirmations to help you use your imagination constructively and to open your mind, body and emotions to greater clairsentient ability. These declarations will in fact always be valuable to you regardless of your unique psychic and intuitive abilities. The development of your 'gut' awareness will always support your clairvoyant, clairaudient and healing abilities.

The Mind Within The Body

The terms 'gut' feeling or 'gut' intuition are not accidental ones. The area of the body between the heart and the groin which encompasses the stomach and solar plexus is particularly sensitive and could be said to have its own intelligence. Indeed, the stomach and solar plexus contain two of the seven main energy centres or chakras that are integral to the teachings of the Indian Yogic system. What is more, on a physiological level this region of the body contains a mass of nerve-endings and, while it is quite different, it could be said that it rivals the area of the brain in its complexity. Is it possible that each of us has a brain in our body as well as in our head, and that we have a body-mind or body intelligence to match?

It is in the gut that we tend to experience pleasure and pain; the pleasure of being loved and accepted, perhaps, or the pain of loss or rejection. It is also in the gut that we often experience a feeling for the environment we are in or the people we meet. Walking into a house with an unsettled atmosphere may leave us with an unsettled feeling in the pit of our stomach, while meeting a person who is genuinely kind, honest, friendly and pleased to see us will invariably leave us with a warm glow that is quite tangible.

Mediation Exercise To Improve Clairsentience

Your clairsentience supports you in health, happiness and success and guides you to places and people that are most suitable for your well-being. Here is a meditation to help you develop your 'gut' awareness:

Meditation: Stimulating 'Gut' Awareness

1. Sit comfortably with your back supported and your body open and relaxed, your arms and legs uncrossed. If you prefer you can lie down for this, but make sure that you keep your body open rather than curled up.

2. To begin, breathe deeply, allowing every breath to fill your lungs completely without straining, and then slowly exhaling. Take a couple of minutes to notice the feeling of your breath as it moves in and out of your body and then gently allow it to assume its own deep rhythm for a while.

3. Imagine that the area of your solar plexus (just below the centre of your rib cage) and stomach contains a powerful mind that steadily vibrates with the impulses from its own intelligence, awareness and sensitivity. Every physical sensation, feeling and emotion exists as a ripple of awareness from this extraordinary body-mind.

4. Imagine yourself breathing directly into your body-mind, the breath from your lungs easily connecting you to your physical and emotional intelligence. As you do this, be aware of stimulating a stronger relationship between this part of yourself and your conscious awareness so that you are always attuned to the power of your gut instinct. What are the feelings that you sense within your body at this time? What are your emotions telling you? Are you feeling calm, excited, sad, joyful, turbulent, peaceful, passionate, angry or loving? Do your best to notice all of your physical and emotional sensations and accept them, allowing them to ebb and flow in their own way and at their own pace.

5. Next, imagine your solar plexus and stomach filling with coloured light that is reminiscent of bright sunshine. Ripples of clear yellow, vibrant orange, shimmering red and fresh, light gold gently penetrate this area, bringing softness, warmth and illumination. The coloured lights are accompanied by rippling sounds of beautiful chimes and a soft, pulsing heartbeat percussion that creates a greater sense of ease within your body. Breathe deeply and allow yourself to experience a feeling of expansion as your stomach muscles begin to relax and waves of energy spread from there to stimulate and calm every area of your body.

6. Sense the energy of this light, sound and feeling touching you deeply to awaken the extrasensory power that is available to you through this area of your body. Your 'gut' awareness is healed and stimulated to receive positive sensual information. Your innate clairsentience is strengthened and enhanced. Again, notice any particular feelings or sensations that you receive at this time. Does your body have a message for you? Are there any insights contained within your emotions? just notice without expectation or judgement and accept what you feel.

7. When you are ready to complete this exercise, visualize a shield of copper and gold that runs, 360 degrees, around your body from just below your heart to just above your groin. Know that you can dissolve this shield whenever you choose to, but that it provides you with solidity, stability, protection and a feeling of security as you continue to expand into greater intuitive awareness.
