Defining six types of intuition
We all have a little intuition in us, whether you believe or not.
You might call it “gut instinct.”
Maybe you just *know* about something that hasn’t happened yet.
Many of us have these tiny little feelings we can’t explain.
You know they mean something, but maybe you just haven’t taken the time to explore what those signs are and what they might mean.
Well, let me introduce you to the Clairs!
They’re the ways we receive stimuli beyond the normal realm (like receiving messages via intuition) and most of them align with our senses!
Which ones do YOU experience?
Clairalience (clear smelling)
Clairaudience (clear hearing)
Claircognizant (just *knowing*)
Clairgustance (clear tasting)
Clairsentience (clear feelings)
Clairvoyance (clear seeing)
Clairalience is clear smelling.
Have you ever experienced a scent that has no physical source?
Maybe you sniffed a perfume or cologne that was a favorite of a relative who has passed?
It may be a sign they are in your presence! Or it could be a scent that connects you to a past experience.
No doubt, people who are drawn to scents (like florists and perfumers and aromatherapists) are more likely to experience clairalience.
Clairaudience is typically a clear and deeply calming voice that delivers messages.
You could also be getting messages through music, but it’s usually in our own mind’s voice.
Some of us learn best by hearing information, so this is a common talent.
If you tend to rely heavily on auditory faculties, or if you are a gifted musician, singer, writer or public speaker, clairaudience may be a leading sense for you!
Claircognizance is defined as clear knowing.
Think of it like having a computer hard drive just downloading information into your brain - directly and quickly!
It’s just like you automagically have knowledge of people or events you wouldn’t normally have.
Maybe it’s a premonition or a warning that flashes in your head. It’s just something you *know.*
Many leaders in business, religion, philosophy, educations, and sciences tend to be highly intuitive and just seem to know some things.
Does this ring a bell for you?
Clairgustance, or clear tasting, happens when we taste things that actually aren’t there!
Think of it this way - a relative who has passed may try to jog a memory with a “memory” (so real you can almost taste it) of a certain dish or drink that reminds you of them!
If you have an amazing sense of taste, or maybe you’re a chef, a baker, you just might be highly clairgustant!
Clairsentience is clear feeling.
Sensing the energy of a room, feeling a gut instinct, or experiencing emotions of others are all examples of clairsentience.
Of maybe you get the “chills” for no apparent reason.
If you are highly sensitive you aren’t just tuned in to your feelings, you’re also tuned into those feelings of others.
This makes us natural caregivers and healers.
Typically you find many clairsentients in rolls like therapists, counselors, teachers and doctors and nurses.
And finally, we have Clairvoyance, which means clear seeing.
If you’ve ever experienced daydreams or visions of the past, present or future floating through your minds eye (or third eye) you’ve probably experienced clairvoyance.
So many of us are visual learners and understand the meaning best when we see written words or visual cues.
Visual people tend to be artists, builders, crafters, makers, designers, and the like.
If this is you, clairvoyance might be your dominant sense.
Once you have an idea of your “Dominant Clair,” a whole world of guidance is open to you.
Now it’s up to YOU to develop and trust your intuition!
