Clairsentience – Overview

Okay, I am starting this with a disclaimer. lol. What is written here is from my experience. We are all different as well as our experiences that you may be clairsentient and have varied experiences. But still I wish to write about it’s use because through scouring the Internet and the book store I have found very little help that gives some insight into this subject.

Clairsentience means clear feeling. Instead of like with clairvoyance in which you commonly see in your mind or outside of your mind, you are clear feeling. The most common definition that I have found is:

Prophetic Clairsentience –
A person who picks up thought and has the ability to just know things although they do not understand or know why they know. This type of person also experiences procognition that may express in the form of hunches, dreams and knowing revolving around past, present or future and how it will effect another person. For example this person may have dreams that turn out to happen although those dreams may not be literal and may still have to be translated.

Feeler Clairsentience –
This type of person picks up thoughts, feelings and experiences that manifest as a feeling. What they are feeling is energy translated into a feeling. Their sense of touch is well-developed and they have the ability to know people by feeling what they feel. After enlightenment, this is someone would have the ability to practice psychometry. The ability to put something belonging to someone in their hand and read the energy. Depending on their other gifts, they could tell the past, present or future from the energy. They have the ability to feel how others feel and not just on the emotional level. They will be able to not only empathise but experience a persons pain, bruises, loss, grief etc. For instance, if they were to channel energy from a persons past life they would experience the pain and hurt that that soul experienced in that past lifetime.

Some may have abilities of both Prophetic and Feeler Clairsentience.

For those of you attempting to discover if what you are experiencing is clairsentience, hopefully this will help.


When spirits are around you you usually feel them. Maybe you feel them touch you some where specific (your hand, neck, foot) or maybe you feel them in your heart chakra (your chakra begins to spin very fast) or maybe you even get a twitch some where on your body. You are feeling energy. Remember that everything is energy and if you are clairsentient then you have the ability to feel the energy of everything. People, animals, plants, objects and spirits. You may be thinking “Well, I don’t feel the energy of all those things.” That may be but it is really just a matter of developing your skills. I can’t usually feel animals but that does not mean I can’t develop that skill, which I plan to do. What you might feel is an electric type of energy feeling that may be very weak and light or may be quite strong. I have felt light energy because what I am feeling is not that strong and I have felt energy so strong that it is almost painful. This includes the feeling of heat and cold as well. Also what you feel may feel like pressure in your chakras. A pressure in your crown for example or your brow that you can also feel in your pineal glands.


Now of course as you may have already realized this all would mean that it is important for your chakras to be clear and functioning properly. Ground and clearing become, to you, and important daily activity.


Here are some common example of what I experience on a daily basis without any effort on my part:
    • During conversations I may feel energy in my right foot that tells me that what I am saying or the other person is saying is correct.


    • While in the presence of some one with high vibrations (other psychics) I feel them in my crown chakra as a pressure. While in chat rooms when a person enters the room I will feel a certain chakra active. I have not determined if this is letting me know their aura color or their emotional state.


    • When someoen tells me something I hear their words but feel the truth fo what they are saying. So no matter what oyu say I know your true feelings.


  • With communicating with my Spirit Guides, Angels, Ascended Masters, and other spirits I first feel their presence by various feelings like a chill, a touch, or an overall feeling as though they are over shadowing me (to me that feels like they are trying to get inside me almost).


Note: I do not have to do anything specific to communicate with spirits. However to comment to someone to do a reading I do. My clairsentience seems to just be always on and available to me although I seem to be able to turn it off just by focusing elsewhere. It is similar with my Empathy. If I do not focus on someone I can stop from picking up their emotions and pain. Basically I can stop from connecting to them.

Other abilities –

One who has clairsentience also commonly experiences at least so clear seeing, hearing, and smell. Many clairsentients develop the skill of psychometry which is reading the energy of objects, places and people.

  1. Fortunately, there is more knowledge and information about Clairsentience than there use to be. Being Clairsentient myself, I relate to the sense of isolation caused by not understanding why or where these signals come from.

    • hey Lea my name is Timothy and I woukd love some more info on this, I never knew what to call my abilities, I had an enlightenment to myself in 2014 and have been training myself to the knowledge all around us, I am super super aware of energy in everything and am able to work with objects that hold energy very very well. Im at a point in my life that I need help and to continue to heal myeslf from what ails me. I have had such profound experinces and I have such a light inside and there is evil that knows about it and it seems like someone or something is trying to harm me and keep anything good from happening. I see and feel the truth and I am ment to effect in a positive way that is lasting. I would love to explain more if you have the time, thank you.

  2. All my life I have always thought there was something wrong with me, that I was crazy in a way because I could pick up on peoples thoughts and feelings. I never knew there was a name for it until the other day , now I feel much better knowing I am ok , and not crazy,lol. The funny thing is I am a hairstylist I touch people everyday , somedays are very difficult when I feel a negitive energy it use to ruin my day ,but now I know what and where it is coming from, I would like to know how to use this gift and make it usful and for the better in my life, I feel I am both Clairentience and Claircognizance. My mother use to go to see a psychic, the psychic told her that she has a daughter that with psychic ability and if she dont practice it she will lose it. My husband is very close minded he just looks at me like I am a green bug or something. I would like to improve my strengths in this area Thanks you for writing this it helped me understand a little better

  3. Susan,

    Your welcome. Read my entry "Empathy and Crystals." Possibly putting a couple of small crystals in your bra (my favorite location to have crystals on my person). Citrine should work really well and allow you to enjoy touching people without a second thought.


  4. I found your site on technorati and read a few of your other posts. Keep up the good work. I just added your RSS feed to my Google News Reader. Looking forward to reading more from you down the road!

  5. I have to say this also helped me very much. I often get feelings but had no idea how or why. Lately i've come across or readings/ signs that point me to "an awakening" or power within myself that needs to be touched/addressed/ developed. Needless to say I have no idea how to start but this has given me a name to work with.

    Thank you.

  6. Hi there, I'm not sure if I would qualify as one but I have notice a few things about me…I always know how someone feel or how they are like just by taking a look at them, I don't know how to explain it and it just hit me that I'm always telling my roommate how people's feelings can rub off of on me easily. I really don't think I am imaging this because a lot of stranger has admitted to me that they usually tell me things they have never reveal to anyone else because they somehow know that I understand even though I have not experience what they have. Anyways I would be glad if I were and was wondering if there is a test for it.

  7. Wow! I finally have a name for my ability. All I've been able to say is that I FEEL EVERYTHING! It is hard to explain how I know so much just by "feeling" it. I found this word in a book called Angelspeake (an amazing book btw). So I started searching and here you are. Thank you for helping me put words to something I didn't know how to explain.

  8. Lisa,
    I know the feeling cause in the beginning I searched and searched and then was disappointed to find limited infomation past just a definition. Also a book that was recommend was Animal Speaks by Andrews. I have his book on How to Use Psychometry and he is a good author and writes in a way that is soooo easy to read and understand…definitely not boring reading. I will have to check out Angelspeaks because I have seen it in the book store.

    If there are any questions I might know the answer to feel free to email me at

  9. Here is the thing that I am having the most trouble with as I am learning to trust and allow these experiences and feelings. I sometimes pick up on someone's energy, such as anger and find myself going there even though I am not angry. It is difficult for me to disengage. Most of the time it happens when I am drained by something else, a crisis at work, followed by a really negative person calling. Any suggestions on keeping myself protected, or not so open?

  10. A small little piece of citrine crystal in your bra will help while at work. It will absorb the negative energy and stop most of the connections from taking place. Then of course all else fails silently in your head ask your guardian angel or guide to break all connections for you. They will only help you if you ask. I know it is strange to think they can stand by and see you suffering and do nothing but they are not allowed to interfrere with us becuase we have free will. So they do need us to ASK for help before they can step in and help us. If you don't know your guides name do what I did before I knew…I politely told them that I wanted to give them a name so that it would make it easier for me to communicate with them cause I felt awkward calling them "Hey Spirit Guide!" lol. They do not mind at all and will welcome the chance to start helping you.

    One other thing you might try is chanting something silently to yourself when trying to stop yourself from acting on the anger you feel. I have don't many things…I change what I chant based on how I feel. I have chanted mantas, prayers, things I made up, phrases like "I love you" which is a very powerful phrase, etc. It actually does really good with helping you disengage by distraction. I know it sounds to simple to work but it actually works pretty good.

  11. On a recent visit home (to Washington) I asked Nick and Susie to give me a Reiki ssosein. I’ve been dealing with constant lower back/ left hip pain for about 4-6 months. I knew that if nothing else I would feel relaxed and refreshed afterwards.What I wasn’t expecting was to be pain free, now it wassn’t instant. I felt the release about half way through my ssosein. Susie placed her hand on the middle of my chest and I felt myself taking deeper and deeper breathes then this release happened; the pain, the weight of the pain was gone I felt lighter more centered like a blanket had been lifted and my spirit was free again.its about three weeks now and I am still pain free and feel more centered in my life than I’ve been in along long time.. I can’t wait to visit them again and have another ssosein.I also look forward to taking the classs.
