Clairsentience – our ancient birthright for everyday life

Before I attended workshops by Universal Medicine and Serge Benhayon I had never heard of clairsentience and yet, when I did hear it, I knew immediately that it meant: clear feeling, clearly feeling, feeling with clarity.

The term ‘clairvoyant’ or ‘clairvoyance’ was also familiar to me. For me personally, it conjured up stereotypical images of women in strange garb with lots of mascara and eyeliner conversing with tarot cards, crystal balls, tea leaves and the palms of hands to make rather strange and mainly pleasing (or should that be pandering?) predictions. And then there are alarming predictions, dire warnings which tend to smack of self-importance and bustle themselves into another person’s life.

The meaning of the word ‘clairvoyance’ is of course clear seeing, clearly seeing, seeing with clarity – but how clearly do we really see when we solely rely on one of our five physical senses?

Is clairvoyance all there is and has it delivered? Or is clairvoyance, at times also regarded with suspicion, mirth or derision at best partial, maybe one-sided, easily manipulated and not always truly serving us? Many people from all walks of life still go to clairvoyants – the Women’s Day magazine, governments and police included!

What happens when we see? And how clearly can we really see?

Our eyes can be and are very easily deceived – images are photo-shopped to the hilt and beyond, statistics conveniently dressed up or dressed down, misinformation abounds. We basically see what we want to see and we don’t see what we don’t want to see (we turn a blind eye with our eyes wide open, no less).

And to top it all, there is confirmation bias that leads us to more of the same, provides just the right angles and nuances, makes us stumble (yes, lose our footing) over something that seems to confirm what it is we think we need to have confirmed.

Examples of that would be the erstwhile purported ‘facts’ that smoking a cigarette is relaxing, that a glass or two of wine a day fends off heart disease, that anorexia is about body image, that refugees are dangerous, that a low fat and high sugar diet is good for you, etc, etc.

And what about clairsentience then?

Clairsentience encompasses all our senses and is a bodily felt knowing that does not need an outer source for confirmation. Clairsentience is our sixth sense and our birthright, it is something we are all born with and never lose; we all feel everything, all of the time.

“Are you kidding me?” I hear you say.

Well, I am not. Once I thought I had lost my ability to feel everything all of the time when in fact, I had just overridden, buried and neglected it. I had surrendered my clairsentience to what I needed to see, to my personal confirmation bias and to the comfort of not rocking the boat too much and to basically being left alone.

We all know what it feels like when we meet a couple who have just had an argument and keep up appearances, only just. We sense it; we smell it and we feel it. We see the fake smile and we hear it in the tone of their voices. There is no doubt in us and we don’t need outside confirmation – we can cut the air with a knife it feels so dense.

Clairsentience is about feeling with the whole body and including all our physical senses. We feel all of the time and there are examples every moment of every day . . . but how come the idea of clairsentience seems strange to us?

  • Is it because we ignore it and thus conclude that it is not there, that we don’t have it?

  • Is it possible that we clairsentiently feel something and immediately push it aside because it is not convenient?

For example:

  • We know the heaviness and density of saying yes while every fibre of our body screams no.

  • We know from the whole body that alcohol is not good for us, at all, but laugh it off with a limp joke or pacify ourselves with the slogan ‘drinking in moderation’ just so we can fit in and get our sugar hit.

  • We know when something smells fishy, even when there is no fish in sight, for miles.

  • And, can you really say that you have never smelled a rat?

And thus, clairsentience is always at our call, we don’t have to learn or practise it. As the title suggests, clairsentience is our birthright and we are all born with it. And there is more; it takes far more energy to fight clairsentience than to allow it back into our lives. Energy drinks, move over and make way for the real deal!
