Welcome to PART I of the “Strengthen Your Abilities” Series.
Every one of us has psychic, intuitive abilities. It’s our decision whether we use these abilities… Or lose them. I love my abilities, therefore I use them. OFTEN. There are times when I ignore what my intuition presents to me and reap the consequences. And let me tell you.. it sucks when you resist!
You know exactly what I’m referring to. Like the time your gas tank was on ‘E’ and a voice in your head said “Get off at the next exit” but your mind thought “Let me just get a little bit further, then I’ll fill up”. Next thing you know, you’re sitting on the side of the road waiting on AAA to come to the rescue. Or that time “something” told you to pick up your daughter’s toys off floor, NOW. Instead you decided against your intuitive advice and in the middle of the night tripped on her Bumpo seat and twisted your ankle.
Situations like that can be avoided. We just have to go with our FIRST THOUGHT. That’s what intuition is!! And we ALL have it. No matter what your religious beliefs are or who you worship, your intuition is always accessible. More often than not, you probably don’t realize you’re using intuition. And usually we discredit intuition and give all the props to “God” or “Holy Spirit” (when decisions have great outcomes). Well God and Spirit have their place and are always there to help but intuition is YOU —- your Higher Self.
So in what ways does your psychic ability aka intuition manifests itself? Well, there are 4 major types of psychic abilities called the Four Clairs — Clairaudience (hearing), Clairsentience (feeling), Clairvoyance (seeing) and Claircognizance (knowing). Typically, we all possess these 4 abilities but one or two ‘clairs’ might be stronger than the others. The key is in strengthening each one. Which I’ll discuss in PART II and III of this series.
Let me explain how each of the four clairs works: Clairaudience stands for “clear hearing” and usually manifests as you hearing actual voices or words will pop into your head. No… You’re NOT crazy. You’re actually pretty darn sane! And psychic.
Clairsentience is “clear feeling“. As an empath I am highly clairsentient. When intuition is guiding me through feeling I’ll get goosebumps. It can be 90degrees with no breeze and I’ll still get “thrillbumps” on my arms or up my back. It will feel much like someone stroking your body with their fingers. I’ll also get gut feelings or queasiness. More than likely you’ve experienced similar ’emotions’ or sensations.
Clairvoyance is “clear vision” which I also use very regularly, especially as an intuitive Tarot reader. Clairvoyance can manifest through dreams, daydreams or deja vu. Right before you drift to sleep if you awaken suddenly because you thought you were dreaming — those are intuitive visions or Clairvoyance.
Lastly, Claircognizance means “clear knowing“. This one can be tricky for some to understand and usually people mistake claircognizance with clairaudience but there is a difference. Clear knowing is simply that. It means to know something. When this happens you might say to yourself “I don’t know how I know that, I just do!!”. That my friend, is Claircognizance.
So you see, these are very distinct abilities that you’ve possessed for a very, very long time and it is definitely worth investing time and energy into strengthening them. Have fun with accessing your psychic abilities. Over the next few days, take time to realize how often you have intuitive nudges, how often you follow your intuition’s advice and the results of following verses not. Enjoy!!
Next week’s post will discuss why using and strengthening your abilities is beneficial in the upcoming 2012. Stay tuned.
