natural psychic ability, how to know which intuitive gifts you have

Everyone has natural psychic ability. So, if you’re ready to find out what psychic gifts you have, look no further!

Below is an overview of all the intuitive gifts and the signs or “symptoms” of each ability.

By the end of this post, you’ll know which natural psychic gifts you have and what your next steps are!

Natural Psychic Ability: How to Know Which Gifts You Have

To kick it off, you should know that there are four main psychic abilities. These are the ways we can receive psychic messages and information. They are:

  • Clairvoyance – Psychic seeing in the form of visions, symbols, and pictures in your mind.
  • Clairaudience – The ability to hear psychically through the auditory channel.
  • Clairsentience – Psychic feeling or sensing, including vibes and energy from people and places. (Going into an antique store when you’re clairsentient can be fun.)
  • Claircognizance – Intuitively knowing something without knowing HOW you know (i.e. there is no logic behind it, you just know for sure).

In a minute, you will learn which of these psychic abilities you have. 

Then, once you understand which gifts come naturally to you, you can start developing them. I encourage you to develop all of these abilities, but it’s helpful to start with whatever natural psychic ability you have.)

Tips: How to use this info

As you read the descriptions of each psychic ability below (called the clairs) notice which stand out to you and:

  • If you identify with multiple clairs, great! That means you have more than one natural psychic ability. (You might even have all of them.)
  • Don’t worry if you only resonate with one ability because you can learn to develop them all.
  • You don’t have to have every sign for every clair. Just see what resonates, trust your gut and don’t overthink it.

Also, it’s normal for one or two of your psychic abilities to be stronger than the others.

Ready to dig in and see which natural psychic ability you have? Let’s start with clairvoyance.

1. Clairvoyance

Clairvoyance is the ability to receive intuitive information in visions. Usually, you’ll see these visions in your mind (known as the mind’s eye or third eye chakra).

The truth about clairvoyance is:

  • Visions may look like movies playing in your head rather than dramatic projections that freeze time.
  • You may see numbers, colors, or still pictures of people, places and objects.
  • The visions are often symbolic. For example, you may wonder why a pair of baby booties keeps flashing before your eyes and later find out that a friend is pregnant.

Signs that you’re a clairvoyant psychic:

  • You see movement, flashes or twinkles of light out of the corner of your eye.
  • You’re a visual learner.
  • Your dreams are vivid (and may come true sometimes).
  • Daydreaming and imagining? You got that! (Your parents or teachers might have complained that you had your “head in the clouds.”)
  • You have seen a spirit in your mind’s eye or in physical form.
  • As a child, you had imaginary friends or saw angels.
  • You’ve had a psychic vision or an image that flashed before your eyes (and the vision may have come true).
  • You see other people’s auras (glowing light).
  • It’s easy for you to visualize.
  • You have a great sense of direction.
  • Mazes, puzzles, and maps are easy for you to figure out.
  • You can plan things in your head (the way a room should be decorated, your new landscaping…).
  • You appreciate beauty and fine art.

2. Clairsentience

Clairsentience refers to an intuitive feeling or sense about something.

People with this gift sense energy and get psychic impressions in the form of feelings. Being empathic (feeling the emotions of others) is also a part of this gift. (You are NOT “too sensitive!”)

Signs that clairsentience is a natural psychic ability for you:

  • Being in large crowds drains you. Mega shoe sale at Macy’s. I think I’ll shop online!
  • Tense situations leave you feeling extremely anxious (more than the average person).
  • You can’t shop at thrift stores or wear second-hand clothing.
  • Organic products are your friend, as you may be sensitive to chemicals.
  • Your friends think you have superpowers because you can always tell when something is wrong with them — even when they are trying to hide it!
  • Watching the news and those animal commercials with Sara McLaughlin singing… YOU. CAN’T. EVEN. You actually go out of your way to avoid the news and reading the paper.
  • When you walk into a room, you can sense the energy. If someone just had a fight or argument, you’ll feel that something is off.
  • You’ve physically felt other people’s intense emotions (like anger or fear).
  • When you play music, you can feel it in your soul.
  • You are sensitive to your environment and can’t stand clutter or dirt. The Container Store is heaven on earth for you!
  • You’ve sensed spirits or loved ones in heaven around you.

If you resonate with this ability, here’s where to learn more about this gift, and know what step to take next.

3. Clairaudience

Clairaudience is the natural psychic ability that means clear hearing. It’s the ability to receive auditory intuitive messages.

You may “hear” from your Spirit Guides, Higher Self, or a spirit (especially if you study mediumship).

If the thought of a spirit calling your name and making you spill your wine mid-bubble bath has you squirming, don’t worry! Clairaudience, like clairvoyance, is often misunderstood.

Signs that clairaudience is a natural psychic ability for you:

  • Loud noise (like Grandpa’s TV volume on 50) really bothers you.
  • You tend to hear things that others don’t.
  • You’re an auditory learner. If given the option, you’ll listen to a book on Audible rather than read it on Kindle.
  • You have heard your name being called when no one is around (but not in a creepy way, I promise!)
  • You’ve heard ringing or high-pitched sounds in your ears (without a medical reason).
  • You tend to talk to yourself a lot.
  • People call you for advice. You’re the “Dear Abby” of the family!
  • As a child, you talked to imaginary friends.
  • You are musically inclined.
  • Each day, you need quiet time to feel sane and grounded.
  • You can hear or understand animals.
  • When you ask for intuitive signs, you receive them in songs and speech.

4. Claircognizance

Claircognizance is a sense of knowing, even when there’s no logical reason for you to know something.

For example, somehow, you know that you’re going to be okay, even when your doctor gives you bad news. Or you stop on the way home to pick up a pizza because you know your dinner plans are going to fall through.

Signs that you’re claircognizant:

  • At least once, you’ve had a strong gut feeling that you couldn’t explain (that turned out to be right).
  • You’ve woken up with an insightful answer to a problem.
  • You have known something about someone (that they were lying or being phony) without any specific reason.
  • You tend to analyze things or have an analytical job.
  • Ideas or thoughts pop into your head, seemingly out of the blue.
  • Your friends and family trust your gut feelings (because you’re usually right).
  • You’ve known what the outcome of a situation will be (a marriage won’t last; your friend will survive her diagnosis…).
  • Mystery movies and novels don’t stump you. You’re a natural detective.
