The Difference Between The Clair Senses

Clairvoyance is the art of 'seeing' with senses beyond the five we normally use and is often called the 'sixth sense'. IThe Differences between the clair sensest is related to the images that are present in your mind that bring messages from the other realms.

These images can be shape, colours, still, animated, remain for a few seconds or last a longer time. You may 'see' them with your eyes open or closed. In clairvoyance we 'see' with what is commonly called the 'third eye'.

Mankind is evolving to a frequency where clairvoyance will be part of daily life. For many people this gift comes naturally - especially children.  Some people find it easy to tune their frequencies into the other side to see.  Other people develop the skill with practice.

Some people become clairvoyant after a unique experience such as a near death experience, high fever, serious accident, blow to the head area, or opening of the kundalini energies.  Some people use chemical stimulants or hallucinogens to heighten their awareness. This is something I do not advise as the information may not be accurate and physical side effects may occur later on.

Clairvoyance connects to the right side of the brain - the feminine, creative, and intuitive aspects.
That is why you may tend to feel physical sensations in on the left side of your body when you work clairvoyantly. The energy enters in through the left side of your body so as to activate the right side of your brain.

Hundreds of years ago - to possess the gift of clairvoyance - one was considered a witch - as the unknown knowledge was 'feared' (the emotion which keeps us trapped on this planet). Anything connected to ‘other wordly’ information was forbidden.

Humanity is returning to an age of enlightenment in which we are all discovering who we are and why we are here. Clairvoyance is part of our total experience - the spiralling evolution of consciousness through the alchemy of time.


Clairaudience means ‘Clear Hearing’. It is usually the ability to hear spirit voices in your mind. Clairaudience is a when you hear spirits speaking to you.  You often know when they are coming in because you may hear a high pitch tone.  This tone is their way of letting you know that they are there and ready to communicate with you when you are ready to communicate with them.

It also varies from spirit to spirit, you will find the more you communicate with spirit, the more different the tones will be with each one.  You can tune into spirit by first asking “Who is there” as soon as you hear the tone. You can also say that you acknowledge their presence and ask what they wish to share with you.  As soon as you ask the question, you may hear a voice speaking in either ear, sometimes you may receive a message telepathically, which is like hearing a voice in your head rather than sounds in your ear. You may actually hear different accents and dialects.  If the language is foreign, your spirit guide will translate the information into your own language so that you can understand the communication more clearly.

After you have been communicating with spirit for a while, you will start to recognize who is coming in, as you will know them by their different signals or call signs. It’s just like having caller ID. A bit like having a direct telephone link to the heavens.


Claircognizance is "clear knowing" or "clear thinking" and comes in the form of thoughts and instant knowledge. An inner knowing. It often co-exists with clairaudience. Have you ever just known something without really knowing how or why? That's claircognizance! Many writers, scientists, and researches have very strong claircognizance abilities.


Clairsentience is a term that defines the range of senses that are used when you get that gut feeling. The gut feeling comes from within all of our bodies combined, the physical, spiritual, mental and emotional bodies.  You have a sense of who the spirit is, what they smell like what they like to do, more or less a “gut feeling” about them. You may also get a sense of how they passed, maybe even feel their symptoms or the pain and suffering they had just before they passed. You may sense their emotional and mental state at that time as well as their physical well-being.  In other words, you will sense all of their bodies. You may also sense how they are doing now and generally get information from them on what they are up to now in the spirit world.

There may be certain smells that come with the spirits that have passed over. For instance, if someone smoked, every time they come around, you may get a whiff of the cigarettes or the pipe tobacco they smoked. If someone loved baking you may get a smell much liked freshly baked bread or if they had a favourite perfume you may get a whiff of their perfume. The unfortunate side of this is that if the person was a heavy drinker you may well get a strong smell of alcohol, this just goes with the territory.

A clairsentient is an individual who is empathetic and senses energies. Energies can be light or heavy, smooth or abrasive, prickly or gentle, peaceful and airy, good or bad. For example, when sensing a negative situation a clairsentient may feel sick, while a positive experience may feel like butterflies in the stomach, or a sense of feeling safe, peaceful and light. Learning to discern positive and negative energies can make all the difference when making decisions in life.

Spiritual advisors and counsellors use clairsentience to feel and sense the information and thought-forms in energy fields. The information about the nature of energies is revealed in colours, lightness, darkness, or emotions such as joy or sadness. Sometimes clairsentients experience a sense of movement or stillness, relaying past, present and future life events.

This ability is known to be essential for healers, counsellors and therapists, or anyone who works with people - especially a psychic or spiritual advisor.  We are all born with this particular psychic ability.
It’s about learning to regulate and protect the gift of sensing moods and emotions that’s the tricky part!

Aside from being honest and naïve, as children we are very open and tuned into the psychic world. As we grow older and experience life, to avoid trauma or negative experiences, we develop a thick skin, protecting ourselves as we begin to interact with people other than the familiar circle of family and friends. These psychic gifts are often unconsciously left on the shelf, but fortunately they can be restored later life through spiritual development or during life-altering experiences.

To use clairsentience for yourself, or improve your connection it is important to listen to your internal feelings, impressions and sensations.  Be aware of and communicate the physical and emotional responses from your gut instincts. By using clairsentience you can make sound decisions in all facets of life from love and relationships to career and spiritual development.
