The most commonly known and used ‘clair sense’ in psychic and spiritual circles is clairvoyance. This particular gift is very common in individuals that have a specific soul mission to use their psychic gift predominately for readings. It has even become a universal term that often includes the other clair gifts.
The term “clairvoyant” comes from the French clair, meaning clear (from the Latin clarus), and voyant, the present participle of voir, meaning to see (from the Latin videre)*.
The clairvoyant is able to see beyond what can be seen by the physical eye and interpret vibrational realities that are non-physical, or have not yet manifested on the physical plane.
Our bodies have five senses: touch, smell, taste, sight, hearing. But not to be overlooked are the senses of our souls: intuition, peace, foresight, trust, empathy ~ C. JoyBell C
These extra-sensory perceptions are not limited by time or space, which is why clairvoyants can often look at the momentum of an individual’s situation and determine his or her course based on their present vibrational reality. Clairvoyants can often see spiritual entities such as angels, guides, loved ones that have passed, and many other types of non-physical beings.
Another major use of clairvoyance in a psychic reading is symbolism. Symbols play an intrinsic role in our psychic and spiritual path. Often times Spirit will utilize symbols that can then be interpreted and bring meaning and understanding to an individual’s situation.
These extra-sensory impressions often have profound meaning to the psychic, or the client. When a psychic is using this gift during a reading, the most common term that you will hear them say is “I see..,” because they are using their extra-sensory sight to gain information.
Although clairvoyance is the most common term used in the psychic field, it is unlikely that this is the most common psychic gift. The reality is that every human being has psychic potential, and the most common psychic gift is clairempathy.
A clairempath, or normally termed “empath” is an individual with extra-sensory emotions. Empaths can tap into what another person is feeling related to a situation. During a psychic reading this can be an invaluable tool, since it can identify the underlining energy or creative energy that is moving a person forward.
The primary purpose for the empathic gift is to bring healing and understanding to an individual’s situation. If the psychic feels a lot of anxiety or frustration with a particular situation, they can assist the individual in satiating these negative emotions so they do not “create” a undesired result.
You must learn to heed your senses. Humans use but a tiny percentage of theirs. They barely look, they rarely listen, they never smell, and they think that they can only experience feelings through their skin. But they talk, oh, do they talk ~ Michael Scott
When a psychic is using the particular gift of clairempathy you will often hear him or her saying, “I feel that you are…” since he or she is tapping into the emotional reality that is influencing the situation.
A gift that is often confused with clairempathy is clairsentience. Clairsentience is “clear sensing”. This is often experienced through the emotions, but it is very different than experiencing another individuals emotions. This is a feeling within the body that occurs without any physical stimuli.
Clairsentience can often occur in the client getting the reading, as well as in the psychic to confirm that he or she is moving in the correct direction during the reading. This gift often manifests as a confirmation of direction.
Clairsentience also occurs in healers and medical intuitives. These types of psychics may feel a sensation in a particular area of the body that needs attention. For example, the intuitive may feel something in his or her lower back to indicate an issue with the lower back.
Clairsentience is another way to identify if spiritual entities are present. When a person is gifted in this area they are able to feel the presence of Spirit, and even identify the “type” of spirit that is present for the session, through the different type of feelings they may be experiencing.
When a psychic is using the gift of clairsentience it is very common for them to say, “I feel around you,” which could be angels, guides, passed loved ones, etc.
The differences between people lie in their use of these senses; most people don’t know anything about the inner senses while a few people rely on them just as they rely on their physical senses, and in fact probably even more ~ C. JoyBell C
Every human being has psychic gifts and potential. The main difference between a psychic that is doing readings and a member of the public is that doing readings as a profession feels like it is the psychic’s path. Consider the difference between the minister and the church attendee. The minister has a specific path to bring spiritual insights to a group of people. This does not make the minister more spiritual than his congregation.
Psychic gifts can be used in a variety of ways from business to creative expression. If you are interested in increasing your psychic gifts my suggestion is to first seek them. There is a verse in the Bible that rings true related to all spiritual and psychic practices: “Ask and it will be given to you. Seek and you will find. Knock and the door will be open to you. For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And everyone who knocks, the door will be opened.” (Matthew 7:7-8)
Some practices that can increase psychic connection are meditation, chanting, prayer, and other spiritual practices. These things can create an environment for greater spiritual and psychic alignment and help individuals attain spiritual goals.
