As you grow in your intuition and spiritual connections, you will find that your senses become heightened. These heightened senses are often referred to as Clairs. Clairs are the senses you use to receive messages from Spirit.
The four most common Clairs are Clairvoyance, Claircognizance, Clairaudience and Clairsentience. However, did you know there are even more Clairs that you may not have heard of before? I’d like to share with you what I know about the different types of Clairs starting with the most commonly known senses and moving into the lesser known senses.
The Four Major Clairs
Clairvoyance is also known as “clear seeing”. This is when you receive visual messages with your mind’s eye/Third Eye. With Clairvoyance you are able to see pictures, symbols, colors, words, memories that belong to you or someone else, and even scenes from movies or tv shows. All of this can be experienced with your eyes closed or open. Everyone can experience Clairvoyance differently.
Claircognizance (clear knowing) is when you receive knowledge without seeking it. You have a certainty about something but no reason as to why. This is very similar to intuition but on a much higher level. It is more than a gut instinct, it’s a knowing. Claircognizance is often used with very high vibrational beings. Many people who experience Claircognizance have divine wisdom channeled through them.
Clairaudience is the ability to hear clearly. With this Clair you are able to hear messages from out of the blue. You may hear them with your physical ear or with your “spiritual ear”. This can sound similar to when you hear your own thoughts in your head or when you are reading to yourself. Those who have a strong Clairaudience have the ability to have easy flowing conversations with spiritual beings.
Clairsentience is the sense that allows you to receive physical feelings with clarity. This Clair is often known as the ability to sense emotional and physical feelings. However, Clairsentience is actually specifically being able to receive messages through physical sensation.
This brings us to the often less understood Clairs:
Clairempathy is the ability to receive clear emotional feelings. This Clair gives you the means to be receptive to the emotional energy. Clairempathy is how Empaths are able to sense the emotional state of others around them.
Clairtangencey, often called Psychometry, is the ability to receive knowledge with physical touch. A person who can work with Clairtangency, can gain information about a living being or an object with physical contact with that person or object.
Clairsalience is clear smelling. Those with Clairsalience are capable of being given the sensation of smell when encountering certain energies.
Clairgustance allows you to connect with energetic messages through taste.
I, myself, work with my Clairvoyance, Clairsentience, Clairempathy, Claircognizance and Clairaudience during my mediumship sessions. Although I have experienced the others before, they aren’t as frequently used. I feel that currently, my most utilized Clair is Clairaudience. However, Spirit often uses more than one Clair to express messages.
Now that you have a better understanding of Clairs, you may find that you have experienced some of these sensations before. Many people have multiple Clairs with some being more prominent than others. Which Clair resonates most with you?
