The 8 Intuitive Senses: Which One Is Your Strongest?

We’re all beings of energy with the ability to clearly sense the world around us. You may frequently tend to just know answers to questions without explanation, receive gut feelings when you know something isn’t right, or even see visions of what your future holds. Many people associate clairvoyance (clear seeing) with psychics. Clairvoyance is just one of the 7 main “clairs,” or intuitive senses. If you have one or two strong senses and want to develop others, don’t worry — you don’t need to be psychic. You just have to intend to develop them.


Clairvoyance (clear seeing) commonly happens when you are able to see visions in your mind’s eye. You may see things happen before they do, or you may receive clear images in your mind. Symbols may also arise, which help guide you as clues to research. Clairvoyance is commonly associated with psychics, fortune tellers, or those able to “see” the future. When your third-eye chakra is open, it becomes easier to be clairvoyant.


Clairsentience (clear feeling) happens when you receive strong sensations in your physical body. You may experience strong gut feelings or sensations in your chest that act as signals to act. With clear feeling, you easily feel things to be true — and they always are.


Claircognizance (clear knowing) is a strong intuitive sense in many people. If you always tend to just know things and answers seem to just pop into your mind, then you are claircognizant. You may have no idea where the answers come from, but you know they’re correct. Claircognizance comes from tapping into the unified field of ether, in order to easily receive downloads of knowledge.


Clairaudience (clear audio/hearing) happens when you perceive sounds from the etheric realm. You may all of a sudden hear a song that isn’t playing, or hear noises that are inexplainable. You may also have ringing in your ears, which signals intuitive downloads of information.


Clairsalience or clairscent (clear smelling) is common when you suddenly smell specific scents or fragrances that are nowhere near you. You may also smell food or certain odors from past events, in the present moment.


Clairgustance (clear tasting) can be surprising, because you instantly taste something that is not in your mouth. It may be something you had eaten long ago which gets mixed up in the frequencies of your current reality, or something that your body intuitively craves for nourishment.


Clairtangency (clear touching) happens when you are able to know something about an object simply by touching it. Your hands receptively act to sense energy, which lets you uncover more knowledge. This is how energy healers sense energy with their hands, in order to determine where energy blocks are.


Clairempathy (clear emotion) is common in many people. If you’re able to sense the emotional energy of others, you are clairempathic. Clairempathics or Empaths easily absorb the energy of others, which can cause them to feel drained. If you easily sense the emotions of another person or your environment, then it’s important to create energetic boundaries.

Thankful, Grateful & Blessed!
