Though many of us may not believe it, we all have the gift of intuition. Our intuition is a way for us to connect with our own spirituality and reach a higher level of knowing.

There are a few different types of intuition, including clairvoyance (seeing images through extrasensory perception), claircognizance (knowing what actions to take without any evidence or rationale), and clairaudience (perceiving what is otherwise inaudible).

But there's a fourth type of intuition called clairsentience.

What is clairsentience?

Clairsentience is the psychic ability that allows people to obtain knowledge through feeling emotions. Those who are clairsentient have a clear feeling that they may not be able to explain, but is overwhelmingly true.

Clairsentients have the psychic ability to sense and connect to the world around us. They feel energy, people's emotional states, 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, so if you do find that you are clairsentient, you need to figure out the best ways to protect yourself from being overly affected by the world's energies around you.

You may have clairsentient abilities if you notice any of these signs:

1. You are very conscious of all the energies around you.

How can being clairsentient affect you?

1. You are an intuitive parent.

When clairsentients become new parents, they have the ability to feel what their children need. As we all know, babies cannot tell us what they want, so being able to understand what a baby needs is a relief.

For example, this would be like a mom knowing which cry means what.

But don't let this good thing fool you, as being clairsentient can sometimes make a person feel paranoid and overbearing of their children.

2. You need healthy ways to channel your emotions.

Being a yoga and meditation master or instructor is a great way for a clairsentient to channel their emotions and connections to others'.

They can help someone flow and work through their negative emotions, stress, and anxieties. Clairsentients can also teach others to feel their own emotions.

This is a great way to utilize 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 peoples' feelings can be a downfall.

A therapist has to remain objective and not take on other peoples' situations and emotions. But if a clairsentient becomes a therapist, they will sense and feel all of the emotions of their patients. This could not only cause bias, but quickly overwhelm the clairsentient.

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