I think I’ve experienced all the claires in my life:
Clairsentient (clear sensing) – body sensations such as tingling, warmth, cold, pressure, or pulsing
Clairaudient (clear hearing) – words, sounds, music, lyrics, or phrases
Clairvoyant (clear sight) – sights, colors, textures, images, moving scenes, or objects
Clairalient or Clairessence (clear scent) – scents, odors, or smells
Clairgustance (clear taste) – tastes such as bitter, sweet, or metallic
Clairempathy (clear emotions) – emotions, feelings such as anger, love, joy, sadness, or peace
Claircognizance (clear knowing) – inner knowing, where it just appears in your consciousness
There are more.
But like all things, I veer towards the ones that come more naturally to me and the others I don’t pay too much attention to. Yesterday I had the most vivid clairessence.
I was sitting indoors, people watching, when I started looking at a man walking about 25 feet from me. The moment we locked eyes I got the strongest smell of him or at least his fabric softener. I looked around my immediate vicinity to see if anything had changed. But no one and nothing had moved within 20 feet of me. The strong smell was gone as soon as it came. It was just one strong whiff of him and it caught me completely off guard.
I’ve also been experiencing a lot of claireaudience this last week. Which has also never been my strong suit. It’s happened when there has been ambient white noise in the background. I can hear singing: sometimes men, sometimes women, sometimes a choir of voices; in no one genre. I can hear the voices more clearly than the music, but I have a hard time deciphering the words.
Like with a lot of things, the more you concentrate the harder it becomes. It’s a matter of letting go, seeing what is happening for what it is and picking up on it as an observer without actually trying. Difficult to explain maybe. But I’ve always found the harder I try the harder it becomes. And when I just let go and let it be whatever it is, I get the best results, which is true even with healing.
I’m just living my life. I’ve fortunately stopped trying to make too much sense of it. I think we live in this vast world of what we like to call oddities. But they are so normal to me that I think we limit ourselves to not think of them so. I have never spoken to someone who hasn’t had some occurrence happen to them that is so completely out of the ordinary or such an extreme coincidence that it just can’t be labeled a coincidence at all; let alone an oddity.
I would like to be in more control over these things, these abilities, but I’m thrilled even to keep having these experiences. They don’t scare me. As puzzling as they are I enjoy them all tremendously. It just goes to prove how life is anything but dull. We live in simply the most extraordinary world mingling with all these other worlds. It’s just the wildest adventure and I’m truly thankful for it❣️
