Clairsentients have the psychic ability to sense and connect to the world around us. 

According to Merriam-Webster, the meaning of clairsentience is an ability to perceive things that are not normally perceivable. 

Clairsentients have a knowing clear feeling that they may not be able to explain, but it is overwhelmingly true. They feel energy, people's emotional state, and physical feelings.

Clairsentience is often compared to the abilities of an empath, but there is a distinct difference. 

While empaths are sensitive to other people's emotions and energies, clairsentients can also analyze these emotions. Clairsentience is the ability to sense other people.

These are examples of how being clairsentient can affect you: 

1. It makes you an intuitive parent.

As a clairsentient, when they become a new parent, they have the ability to feel what their children need, as we all know that babies cannot just tell us. So, being able to understand what your baby needs is a relief.

This would be like a mom knowing which cry means what. But don't let this good thing fool you, being clairsentient can sometimes make a person feel paranoid and overbearing on their children. 

2. You need healthy ways to channel your emotions.

Being a yoga and meditation master or instructor is a great way for clairsentient to channel their emotions and their connections to other people's emotions. They can help someone flow and work through their negative emotions, stress, and anxieties.

They can teach their students to feel the emotions that they are having. This is a great way to utilize their clairsentient abilities for the better.

3. You might have trouble removing yourself from others' emotions.

For example, if you are a therapist, you want to be able to connect with your patients on an emotional level. But sometimes, having a deep connection with other people's feelings can be a downfall.

When a person is a therapist, they have to remain objective and not take on other people's situations and emotions. But if a clairsentient becomes a therapist, they will be sensing and feeling all of the emotions that their patients are feeling. This could make them become biased to the situation and it can quickly overwhelm them.

So, when it comes to highly emotional situations that involve many people, being clairsentient will make it hard to explain their own feelings because they are overpowered by everyone else's.
