Here’s the thing about words – people love them. We love to come up with a term and classify ourselves as such, as if there’s a certain rule book. Well people – I hate to break it to you, I have found no rule book on how to connect with Spirit, and I certainly do not plan to make one. We are all SO DIFFERENT in how we connect with Spirit, there really is no way to tell if someone is doing this right or wrong. I say that loosely, and there are some fakers out there, so still be careful if you’re going to someone. However, if you are developing your own senses, PEOPLE have come up with an interesting way of naming the way to receive information. If you’ve heard on television a medium is Clairvoyant, that means they can SEE Spirit. Clairaudient people can HEAR spirit. It’s all pretty cool, but then there are people like me who are a little bit of everything. Just call me Clair. Hah, get it? Anyways, my hope is that the outline they have created can help you get a grasp on how you work and your unique way of connecting with Spirit. Here’s an outline.
The CLAIR SENSES- Many people use the “Clairsenses” as a way to describe their ability to connect with spirit using their senses. Here are a list of the terms and how it is applied to connection to Spirit. There are 3 MAIN CLAIRS, and a few more that are commonly paired with one of the main clairs.
Clairvoyant (clear vision) — A clairvoyant is someone who receives impressions and symbols in the form of “inner sight” or mental images. These visions come with no assistance from the physical eye or the physical world. All images, visions, etc play like a movie in the minds eye.
Clairaudience (clear hearing) — A clairaudient is someone who receives information by hearing. This means that within their own thoughts, they may hear a voice that is different from their own. Most Mediums work in this modality and have the ability to hear Spirit very clearly. To further develop clairaudience you must have a clear sense of your inner voice.
Clairsentience (clear sensation or feeling) – To perceive information by a “feeling” within the whole body without any physical world help. As in when they are channeling someones passing, they may “feel” it in their heart.
Clairscent (clear smelling) – To smell when there is no physical world smell present. Ex. If you are walking around your house and you smell your grandfather’s cologne.
Clairtangency (clear touching) — Psychometry. Essentially to touch something and in that moment get a vision.
Clairgustance (clear tasting) — To taste something with no physical world help. Ex. When you are channeling, and you taste coffee – but you are not drinking coffee.
Clairempathy (clear emotion) – Refer to EMPATH. Empathy is often stated as the ability to tune into others feelings, replacing them for your own.
I told you, people like words. But here’s the question – what do YOU relate too. If you are coming to this portion of my blog, it is probably because you have gifts of your own. We’re all sensitive, so understanding how you connect is what is going to propel you further. And if you’re like me, and have multiple of these senses, it’s ok. We don’t have to fit in a box. We’re allowed to have more than one. And that is why we’re us. So think on it, and google around.
****** GOOGLE DISCLAIMER******
I’m being serious (sort of). If I tell you to google anything in my blog, please formulate your own opinions. Google can work one of two ways, you google headache because you have a small headache and want to know the solution, and you come out thinking you have a brain tumor. OR. It can provide you with some of the right information, if you don’t read everything. Especially in the world of Spirituality and Mediumship, please please PLEASE don’t read into EVERYTHING you read. Everyone is going to have their own opinions, and that’s why it’s important to stay grounded in your own belief system. Trust me, one time I googled the appearance of my spirit guide, and google told me he was a horrible, Horrible thing. HE wasn’t, he’s one of the best Spirit People I know. So – learn from my mistakes. Headaches only RARELY = Brain Tumors. (Use your own discretion).
