Defining Psychic Senses Using The Clairs ~ Part One

Updated: Jul 16, 2020

We are all familiar with the basic five human senses (sight, sound, taste, smell and touch) and how they help us move around in the world with increased awareness. But, do you realize that we are all born with at least a few psychic senses?

We are all born with what are known as 'Clairs.' A Clair is a psychic gift that helps us to interpret energetic information. Often, we may not recognize or really know how to use them since we have not been exposed to them. It takes learning AND practicing!

We may assume that only unique and special people are born with these psychic qualities. That is not true!

Work with Your Strengths

It is best to work with your strengths. I was taught from a young age to trust my gut feeling. It has been one of my Golden Rules; however, in typical fashion ~ I also learned the consequences of ignoring my gut feelings!

When you get messages, you may feel unsure if you are making them up or have an overactive imagination. I assure you, this is not the case.

Let’s learn more about the six Clairs, so you can start using them to your advantage and becoming aware of which Clairs seem to present themselves to you the most.


Clairvoyance or clear seeing certainly gets the most attention and people are quickly labeled as a Psychic in the movies and media. Yes, some people can energetically SEE the colors in a person’s aura. That may seem like a type of super-power. But it is just one of many Clairs, or psychic gifts that we all have. They are not in any order of ranking of abilities. Do not jump to the conclusion that if you are not seeing aura colors, that you have no intuition of other psychic gifts. Nothing could be further from the truth. Someone with psychic ability to interpret information via knowing, feeling, smelling or hearing, is just as psychic as one who can see psychically.

Signs You May be Clairvoyant – if you answer yes to the questions below:

Do you close your eyes and process in images or metaphors?

Would you rather learn by seeing something rather than hearing about it?

Are you visual, and enjoy visualizing? 

Do you often say, “I see” in conversation?

Do you notice flashes in your peripheral vision, yet you turn any nothing is there?

Are you creative and artistic?


Clairsentience is clear sensing/feeling that allows you to process energy through your emotions. One of the biggest challenges is separating your energy from others. You are sooo sensitive, that many times you take on other’s feelings as if they were your own. This becomes clearer over time and with more practice, you will be able to protect yourself from taking on so much.

One of the best ways to strengthen your abilities is to meditate and create a daily routine of grounding and connecting into the earth and up to the heavens through divine love and white light. This will help to clean out energy that is stuck or not yours and it keeps it flowing—which is crucial to our well-being. Be careful not to process others energy and issues. You may think of this as a way to help them, but it will backfire and exhaust you over time. It does not help you OR them.

Each of us deserves the opportunity to process our own stuff. Enabling others can make us sick in the process by trying to fix or save another person.

Signs You May be Clairsentient – if you answer yes to the questions below:

Are you very empathic? Even confusing other’s emotions as you own?

Do you notice when the energy in the room or around a person is Happy? Angry? Sad? 

Is time alone essential to feel whole and balanced?

Are you a deep feeler and emotionally triggered at large gatherings or even TV?

Can you hold an object, like an antique, and receive information about it?

Claircognizance Claircognizance is clear knowing. It is a connection to divine knowing. It is when we just know something but have no logical explanation to how or why we know it. There is no need to prove this. It is a very grounded and real awareness.

Signs You May be Claircognizant – if you answer yes to the questions below

Do you just know something before you are told? (listening to others, quiz, race or event)

Do you wake up before the alarm goes off?

Do you know when someone is lying to you?

Do you get downloads of info in the shower, dreaming, driving, gardening?

Do you say “I know” in conversation? Check out Part 2, where we explore Clairaudience, Clairgustance and Clairscent (not to be confused with Clairsentience)
