Are You Clairsentient?

(Pronounced clair-sen-tee-ent)

Clairsentient people have the gift of psychic sensing. So, if you can intuitively feel things about people and places, or can’t understand why you’re drained after going to the mall, read on…

Because clairsentience is likely one of your intuitive abilities!

Clairsentience is the psychic ability that connects you to your intuition via senses and feelings. A clairsentient may meet someone and get a good or bad feeling or hug their friend and feel excited before she shares good news.

Clairsentient Examples

Most everyone has experienced clairsentience at some point in their life.

For example, have you ever felt like something isn’t quite right? Or that someone isn’t telling the whole truth?

If so, you’ve experienced clairsentience.

With this psychic gift, you may get a sense about a person, place, situation — or even a spirit! (Psychic mediums are often clairsentient.) You may also:

  • Walk into a room and know that people were fighting, even though there is no evidence of it. Everyone may be smiling, but you can feel tension in the air.
  • Avoid shopping at certain stores because of the energy. It may feel heavy and oppressive, or make you feel overstimulated. (I always feel this way in Best Buy.)

Now let’s take a look and see how many clairsentient signs and “symptoms” resonate with you!

Tip: Learn more about clairsentience, including how to manage clairsentient anxiety, being an empath, what it feels like to experience psychic sensing, and even tips for developing your gift!

Signs You Are Clairsentient

1. You get drained being with people

Feeling tired after being with people is one of the hallmarks of clairsentience.

Clairsentients feel energy strongly and are often empathic. So, imagine how draining it is to engage with a group of people for an extended amount of time!

Sensing everyone’s emotions, moods, and bad days could be the reason you want to swim to an island where you can be alone!

Don’t worry though, you can learn how to manage and control your clairsentient ability.

Tip: Take quiet time each day to rejuvenate. Sensitive souls need alone time, so be sure to give yourself space when needed so you don’t get drained.

2. Clairsentients have great instincts

Have you ever met someone and just known something about them (and turned out to be right)?

If you sense people’s intentions with no logical explanation, it’s a clear indicator that you are clairsentient!

Maybe your friends are always asking what you think about their potential partner. Or you’ve known to steer clear of certain people who turned out to be bad news. Either way, that’s your clairsentient ability at work.

Best yet? There are simple tips you can use to increase your clairsentience!

3. You sense energy in the room if you’re clairsentient

Have you ever walked into a room after an argument and known something had happened? Or picked up an item in an antique store and felt a positive or negative vibe?

Leftover energy is tangible to a clairsentient (which can make certain places very draining).

In fact, psychometry is an exercise that you can use to “read” the energy of an object.

Tip: Carrying a black tourmaline crystal can help protect you from negative energy.

4. You know when your friend had a bad day

If a friend has said, “How did you know I was sad/depressed/anxious?” while looking at you with wide eyes, you might be clairsentient.

Clairsentient people are like human emotion detectors.

Even if your bestie has a smile pasted all over her face, you’ll sense when she’s had a terrible day.

5. You need tissues to watch the news (classic clairsentient sign)

Because empaths feel energy, news stories can be tough to watch.

Avoiding the news is a classic sign that clairsentience is one of your psychic abilities.

As empaths, we feel the anxiety of the people who lost everything in the hurricane, or those affected by a recent law passed.

Of course, it’s great to stay informed, but if you find yourself avoiding horrible clickbait stories, you’re not alone. Try going news-free for a week and see how you feel.

6. Emotional movies leave you in tears

Of course, it’s Hollywood’s job to make us feel emotion, but if movies leave you wondering if it’s time to buy stock in Kleenex, you likely have clairsentient ability.

Clairsentients may feel the emotions the characters are portraying (I simply cannot watch Forrest Gump ever again).

And after a couple of hours of that? Ugh. Exhausting!

7. You feel emotions that are not your own

If you experience sudden changes in your mood when you enter a new environment, don’t let your friends convince you it’s PMS.

Energy is all around us, and as a clairsentient, you can feel it. That’s why sensing someone’s mood (even when they try to hide it) is a surefire clairsentient sign.

No need to panic, though.

8. You are sensitive to your environment

Do subtle changes in your room or workplace impact you? Does clutter in your space feel like clutter in your mind?

Clairsentient people are affected by their surroundings because places hold energy, too.

When I bought my home in 2007, it was because the energy in the house felt amazing. Of course, it was super cute, too, but the loving energy in the house is what sold me!

So, if shifts in your environment throw you for a loop, and clutter makes you anxious — you may be clairsentient!

9. You feel other people’s pain

Have you ever felt the hunger pains of a homeless person? Or the dull ache of someone you’re visiting in the hospital?

People who have clairsentience pick up on psychic energy, but may pick up on pain, too.

If this happens to you, remove yourself from the situation if possible. For example, volunteer to raise money for the shelter instead of working in the shelter.

10. People say you’re too sensitive

Are people always saying you’re too sensitive? Have you been called empathic?

If you have clairsentience, this makes sense. People who can psychically feel are often empaths — and feel other people’s feelings.

You may be clairsentient if you have these empath signs, too:

  • Friends and family describe you as sensitive.
  • People call you when they’re having a tough time because they know you’ll understand.
  • Strangers are drawn to you and may share their personal problems.

If this resonates with you, be sure to read my top tips for empaths.

11. You have gut feelings

If you’re known for spot-on gut feelings, you might be clairsentient.

Those with clairsentience can sense intentions, motives, and feelings without ever saying hello.

They may also know that everything is going to turn out okay or get a feeling that their new boss is cool before they order pizza for the whole office!

12. You can’t shop at thrift stores

I know that flea market flips and upcycling are all the rage right now, but if you just can’t do the whole antique thing, it’s a crystal-clear indicator that clairsentience is one of your psychic abilities.

Remember, even a gorgeous vintage ring carries energy from the former owner that you can sense, even if you don’t realize it right away.
