Think of your 6th sense as simply another way to receive information about what’s going on in the worlds around you. There are four basic ways to take in information, which are sometimes referred to as psychic gifts. I prefer to refer to them as psychic abilities, as everyone has psychic ability. It is not ‘gifted’ to a few people. However, we all accept and develop our psychic abilities at different levels.
The prefix ‘clair’ means clear. Therefore, when using our psychic abilities, we are picking up clear information that is not physically present. In other words, when I communicate with the animals, I pick up words that are not being physically spoken by the animal.
Psychic information is transmitted and received by:
- Clairvoyance: Information is received by seeing pictures, visions or images.
- Clairaudience: Information is received by hearing sounds, words or thoughts.
- Clairsentience: Information is received by feeling emotions, illnesses, feelings.
- Clairgustance: Information is received by smelling.
There is no right or wrong way to receive psychic information, and there is not necessarily only one way to receive information. My background as a musician and spiritual director both involve highly developed and active listening skills. I believe it is because of this training and background that the animals usually choose to communicate with me via clairaudience, the hearing of words, or thoughts.
I also pick up information via clairvoyance, seeing pictures, visions or images and clairsentience, receiving feelings. I have never received information via clairgustance, receiving smells.
The next time you have a ‘gut feeling’, I invite you to take the time to discover how you received that feeling: Clairvoyance (seeing), Clairaudience (hearing), Clairsentience (feeling) or Clairgustance (smelling).
