Types of Intuitive Abilities

By Caroline :: :: 12 comments

Is it possible that you could be blessed with extra-sensory perception? I’ve used the technical terms but many people often describe these senses simply as ‘intuition’, ‘empathy’, or ‘instinct’. It doesn’t really matter what you call them but rather how you make the most of these wonderful abilities.

images

Clairvoyance: This is the ability to to see beyond your physical sight. This is the skill used in remote viewing where you see objects which are hidden or far away. You experience clairvoyance in the form of visions, receiving information in the form of symbols, mind pictures and possibly dreams. If you are clairvoyant, you may also be able to see auras, the energy fields that emanate from living beings and many other wonderful things.

Clairaudience: This is the ability to hear beyond physical hearing. You may pick up on voices, music and sounds that should be inaudible. For example, someone with this ability could be a thousand miles way and hear a loved one’s cry of distress. Many mothers develop this ability when listening for cries from their babies and children. Many mediums have fine tuned this ability so as to hear and speak for a departed love one in a mediumship sitting.

Clairsentience: This is the ability to feel or sense beyond the physical; such as gaining information through the five physical senses (heightened), intuition or ‘gut feelings’. Clairsentience is also often described as ‘empathy’ because you can sense and feel others emotions. Many healers have the gift of clairsentience to help them in their work. People who have this gift can feel overwhelmed in crowds and busy places until they learn to better manage this gift!

Psychometry: This is the ability to touch an object or person and receive impressions about that item or the person. You may receive the images clairvoyantly or perhaps you just have a sense of immediate knowing. Psychometry can be very revealing and can make museums and secondhand shops either stressful or amusing for you ;)

Telepathy: This is the ability to send and receive thoughts, feelings and impressions to and from other people. Some people only have the ability to send or receive; and some people have learned how to be both a sender and receiver. Telepathy is a huge responsibility so if you have this gift, focus on sending out love to people.

Precognition: This is the ability to know the future! Sometimes you will just ‘know’ what is going to happen and sometimes you may receive detailed flashes of insight. Great care and skill is required when predicting the future because it comes with great responsibility. People have free will to choose their lives so the best predictions of the future will show you the likely outcome given on the present energy of the situation and how you can create the future that you want to experience.

I would love to hear about your abilities and if any of the above resonates with you. I would also love to help you with you in an intuitive reading if you are seeking more insight. Please contact me for a chat today. Lots of love, Caroline X

    That’s a very interesting piece, Caroline. Although I have no particular psychic skills, I would say I am an “intuitive” type (I am a double fire sign, Aries rising, Sun in Leo). To speak frankly, I am going through a crisis in my life, where I just can’t find adequate expression for all the love & empathy I genuinely feel for life, & it’s tearing me apart. I’m not stupid, & I can find objective reasons for this feeling but I suspect it’s something much deeper than a rational explanation can afford. As best as I can describe it, I feel waves of emotion that become so intense it blinds me to everything, & makes me behave in ways that ordinarily appal me. Nothing criminal I must add, just things that deeply impinge on my own conscience, & cause me such mental anguish I frequently wish I could just leave everything behind, which I know is a sin, but that’s how potent the feeling is. Maybe I can chat to you some time. Thanks for listening, Jon

      Hi Jon, thanks for posting and sharing your thoughts. I believe that you’re going through a particularly challenging planetary transit right now but I would need to look at your birth chart to be sure. I’d love to help you with a reading! Please come and see me for a session soon.

    Thanks Caroline, now I know that I am clairvoyant, clairsentient and have precognition. That’s great to know, although I do have trouble trying to distinguish between what I am creating because I want to believe something or I want something to be a certain way, so some things I think maybe I am imagining because it fits in line with what I want to see as opposed to genuine psychic messages. I guess it’s ego verses soul and I am not sure which to listen to sometimes or which is correct. I hope this makes sense. I do believe that I will get there...eventually :smile:

    Hello Caroline,
    Thank you for your article it’s giving me things to think about, which I have more than one of those intuitive gifts and at times I feel I can’t control them and the senses feel overwhelming... I try my hardest to send golden light and love to all that comes across my journey path but at times people’s negativity can be so strong and I feel defeated and let down.. I would appreciate some incentive and advice??? If you can I have been on my spiritual journey from 14years of age.. I’ve also been to see healers and clairvoyants to help me and I’ve gained a little bit of knowledge, but they have held back on the important stuff. Could you also tell me why?
    Thank you for your time. Mish

    Hi Caroline I found your piece very informative I guess I have a both of all you mentioned and I am a mess I can telepathically connect to those open to it and can send and receive If I open myself to it I also have the ability of healing the downside those I massage or lay hands on I take all that pain in myself and is ill myself (Bad) I alos know things without knowing how and is extremely sensitive to negative energy it hits me cold so I cant go into shopping malls etc anymore its getting worse the older I get Ive become a recluse and is racked with panick whenever I’m around negative energy. I also have dreams the one thing also sometimes happen is feeling what others feel and its real and scary. I experienced a girls dying and almost went off my head with fear because I thought it was my daughter I saw the place everything and the next day we heard about the killing I was devastated how does one deal with all that.....

    Hi Caroline. Since a very young age I have been aware of the ability to “read” or tune into other people’s emotions and thoughts. I obviously wasn’t aware at the time it was different to others as a boy and constantly found myself in trouble as a result. Now I have studied and learnt to either work with or shut down this ability that others seem to be desperate to acquire. I trained in Reiki to master level to help me understand “extra” skills and energy and learnt the two seem to blend together very well. This is definitely one time it is acceptable to use it. The problem is it is invasive and really there is no other way to describe how it makes others feel .Suddenly you don’t take anyone for face value anymore because you are no longer unaware of their hidden values or flaws. This can be good and may well be a form of protection we no longer rely on, very similar to a wild animals sense of self preservation, but will never impress the girlfriend when you instantly dislike their boss. My observation is people are afraid of anything that they don’t understand and to make it harder, I don’t really understand it. I don’t know why I can do this and most can’t and having worked in metal health care often find myself questioning my own sanity. I think if the information wasn’t so specific and correct I would be very concerned for myself. What I do know is we should embrace and learn from what is different, especially in the psychic world because this is arguably where we are all heading towards and not treat the gifted as a party trick or sideshow. Hollywood has much to answer for in terms of damage it has done to a very genuine subject and has hurt lots of people. We need more people like yourself to help educate in a very sympathetic way about the unseen world and help heal the wounds. Thankyou Caroline. Take care always. Matt

    HI Caroline
    I have developed a sense of some sort by seeing symbolic things, feather and butterflies. Since my fathers death 2 years ago. I started to go to a psychic circle to help develop this new found skill. In the beginning I saw nothing and felt a little silly. However now nearly 2 years later I have stated to see more.
    I am a holistic therapist and have seen auras only whilst doing reiki on clients. I feel energy from others and can pick up easily their emotions. In reading s I am often told I need to ground myself more. I have a new love for crystals and holistic healing.
    I often see spirit in meditation but would love to develop my skills further.
    I am beginning to smell things too. I can smell my dads aftershave or coffee which he loved to drink. But I can’t see things only in meditation.

    Hi to All...I think I do have some 6th sense. I am able to see things that are to happen in a dream. Sometimes I am able to interpret them correctly and at times not. I may state that I don’t force myself to imagine/see. It just happens.
