These are the psychic senses, and the abilities that they have. Knowing, and learning to use the clairs can help you gain information on the world around you. All of these senses are the spiritual extensions of your already existing senses. You already possess them and use them, you just have to remember how to. You do not have to be born with a divine gift in order to use these skills. All you have to do is be open to the experiences you are having, and learn how to progressed them. As long as you take time to progress their growth you will be able to learn, and use them to their full potential. Everybody has these skills to some extent, but they may not be proficient enough for you to get the full experience out of, and need to be exercised in order for them to allow you to perceive the world.
Clairvoyance is the six sense’s ability to see. This allows you to see the spiritual world with your inner eyes, and perceive sites that you never would have seen without it. Through clairvoyance you will receive images, colors, and visions that will allow you to interpret the energies around you in order to gain insight. This is one of the more used, and well-known spiritual senses, because of its famousness, and the fact that it is something that a lot of people can connect to in their sense of perceiving. What you may see in your clairvoyance is usually easy to interpret, and to understand, because most entities are already very used to interpreting things with their eyes. When someone sees something in their spiritual vision they will be able to literally see it in their mind’s eye. Seeing something in your third eye would look a lot like recalling a memory in your head, with how clear it is depending on the Entity receiving it. This is a very good skill to get a hang of if you are a visual person, and will greatly improve how you experience your craft.
Things that will help you learn, and experience your clairvoyance:
1) Meditation is always a very good idea when trying to learn any type of spiritual technique, or skill. It allows you to really focus upon it, and unlocked the secrets gradually through your own growing spiritual understanding. So one should always give meditation a try especially to improve your clair abilities. So from here on out just assume that everyone of these spiritual senses could have meditation underneath it. (I’ll still probably put it under each one.) Some meditation posts: Meditation, Void Meditation, Focal Meditation, Journey Meditation
2) Visualization will help you to better in vision certain shapes, and constructs in your mind’s eye. This will also allow your third eye to be more open to see things in it, and will greatly increase your clairvoyance, because you are using your third eye more.
3) Pay attention to see if there is any images that enter your mind, so that you can try to interpret them.
4) Try to use zener cards in order to improve your viewing skills.
5) Play a nice game of Kreidler The Magick Card Game (This is a promotion for one of my old posts… you caught me…)
6)Ask to see your spirit guides in your mind’s eye.
Clairaudience is the six sense’s ability to hear. This allows you to hear the spiritual world through what I would like to call your spiritual ears. This will allow you to perceive noises, sounds, and other audio stimulants from the spiritual planes of existence. This will allow you to hear voices, spiritual audio cues, and maybe even energy itself if you become proficient enough in it. Clairaudience is great for people who are verbal, and need to hear things in order to gain insight easier. Experiencing clairaudience will sound a lot like disembodied audible sounds, but with no discernible source, a lot like when you hear someone call your name. If you can learn to trust what you are hearing you can have a great communication with the entities that are around you, and the spiritual world in general.
Things that will help you learn, and experience your clairaudience:
2) Sound awareness will make you more sensitive to the sounds around you helping to progressed your spiritual ability to hear, and pick up on low usually unperceived sound.
3) Learn to try to feel into music. You can do this by listening closely to your favorite songs, and trying to feel the energy behind them.
4) Try to imagine sounds happening in your head. This will allow your psychic ears to get more use to trying to hear sounds that are not there.
5) Ask for your spirit guides to make noises that you can perceive with your spiritual ears.
Clairsentience is the six sense’s ability to feel. This is the sense that will allow you to feel into information, and be able to read it just from the feelings that you are getting, without any other stimulus tipping you off to that information. This is a pretty hard one to explain but it is very different from clairtangency, and clairempathy, because in this practice you are feeling the straight out from the energy information, you get no other signs, but you just know it. This is a way to clearly sense the world around you.
Things that will help you learn, and experience your clairsentience:
2) Learning to trust your gut is a very important part of clairsentience, so that you can learn to differentiate from information that you create, versus the information that comes to you via your perception.
3) It is also very important to be aware of your thoughts, some of these could be the higher realms communicating with you.
4) Look at pictures of people, and try to tell everything about them just simply by looking at them. Do not judge them, but much rather allow your intuition to come out.
5) Do automatic writing by just allowing your gut to tell you what is right to write. This will help train your senses.
6) Think about something, and see if any information comes up about it randomly.
Clairescence also known as clairscent, clairalience, and clairolfaction is the six sense’s ability to smell. Clairescence is one of the more odd ones you don’t hear too much about all the time. this is your ability to spiritually smell, and it’s like perceiving odors, and fragrances that do not have any known source in your surroundings. This is a very interesting way to get insight from your perception, via smells you associated with other constructs, or information. This process is not done with your physical nose, but will still smell in the exact same way. Through the interaction of these smells you will gain insight into the information that is around you.
Things that will help you learn, and experience your clairescence:
2) Try to imagine smells appearing in your vicinity that are not presently there.
3) Smell things, and see if you can get information on that thing that you shouldn’t be able to. Pretty much what I’m saying is go out, and smell things.
4) Pay attention to any smells that come into your perception, so that you can analyze them
Clairtangency also known as psychometry is the six sense’s ability to touch. This not only allows us to feel spiritual energy with her hands, but it also allows us to read into the information that that energy holds simply by touching it. Simply by touching something you can gain so much insight into the construct that you are making contact with. Once you get good enough at clairtangency you won’t even have to touch the physical object in order to get insight into its energies, all you would have to do is feel the energies around it. Clairtangency can be done with any part of your body, but is primarily done with your hands, because of the very sensitive hand chakras that reside within your palms. Being able to feel the energy around you with a spiritual touch can help you in many ways in your craft just by being a very practical way to feel energy.
Things that will help you learn, and experience your clairtangency:
2) Taking different objects into your hand while trying to feel into them is a great way to train, and hone your skills with clairtangency.
3) Pass your hand over objects, and see if you can get a sense of where they have been, or the energies that they produce.
4) go to a museum, do not touch the exhibits, but raise your palm up to them, so that you can feel into their energies, name off some stuff and then check the description to see if you’re right.
Clairgustance is the six sense’s ability to taste. This is another one that is kind of out there for most people. This is the ability to spiritually taste things, even if they do not reside in your physical mouth. If you know how will be able to taste things energetically, and from this experience you will be able to gain insight into the energies that you are tasting.
Things that will help you learn, and experience your clairtangency:
2) I know this sounds weird, but in your mind try to taste people’s energy to see if you can tell the difference in its flavors, Essence, and substance.
3) Whenever you taste something try to actually focus in on with that taste is. In order to get used to the sense of taste.
Clairempathy also known as just empathy is the six sense’s ability to sense, and feel emotion. Empathy will allow you to feel other people’s emotions, and feelings in order to gain insight into them, and the world around you. Empathy is a very powerful connection that if used correctly, and with a lot of understanding can make interacting with all things a lot better. With empathy you are able to pick up on everything that an entity may be feeling. It is a very deep personal insight that allows you to experience things from others perspectives at least in an emotional sense.
Things that will help you learn, and experience your clairempathy:
2) Sit quietly, and try to feel your own emotions, so that you can understand how emotions feel to you, and interact with you.
3) Try to feel into the emotions of the people around you, and see if you can get any worthwhile results.
4) This post might be able to help you Empaths, And Empathic Energies.
