First Things First…What are your clairs?
Connecting with your higher self, your sixth sense, and Spirit World requires the use of all of your senses: taste, touch, smell, hear, and sight. These senses will be the doorway through which your connection with your intuitive psychic self becomes stronger. Through your clairabilities, you take your physical senses to a higher spiritual level. I call this ‘heightened sensing’. We have 7 clairabilities:
Clairvoyance – Clear seeing
Claircognizance – Clear knowing
Clairaudience – Clear hearing
Clairsentience – Clear feeling
Clairkinesthesia – Clear touching
Clairgustance – Clear tasting
Clairolfactory – Clear smelling
Claircognizance & the Crown Chakra
Your claircognizance ability is rooted in your seventh chakra. This is the gateway to this amazing ability that you were born with. The word clear is from the French word clair and cognizance from the word conoissance which mean ‘knowledge’. Hence, clear knowing.
The Crown Chakra is orange in violet in color. It assists us with our knowingness and spirituality. This chakra offers us the opportunity to just ‘know things’ without having to access our logical left brain, or intellectual self. In addition, this is the seat of our clear knowing ability. Here you begin to strengthen, unravel and become in tune with your claircognizance.
Take a moment now to see this vibrant violet colored chakra spinning with vivacious life force in a clockwise direction. Imagine it alive and well. As you begin to work with this chakra more and more, in time, you will begin to feel it. You might feel it now as you place your consciousness in this area. What are the sensations? Focus here and begin to tune into this chakra. Let your attention be present in this space for a few moments. This simple act is telling your Higher Self you are ready to open this fully.
How do I know I’m claircognizant?
Pay attention to your language. If claircognizance is a strong ability you might find yourself saying:
“I just knew that plan was going to turn out that way!” as opposed to “What I hear you saying about this plan is…”
“As I consider this project I just know it’s going to be great” as opposed to “As I consider this project I’m hearing you say…”
If you chose the former word arrangement, you are likely claircognizant. This information comes with certainty but you can’t really explain why and there is no logic to the sense of knowing. If you chose the latter, you are likely more strongly clairaudient (clear hearing).
Have you ever been part of an event and as it unraveled you knew immediately it was going to be a blunder? You might have said to yourself “Oh wow…I’ve made a mistake. I knew it. Why didn’t I pay attention to that?”
If you tend to have experiences of knowing things that seem to manifest out of nowhere then you are claircognizant. It is quite common to have two or even three clairabilities that present as strongest for you. As you grow in your learning you will identify your strengths by how you interact with the world around you.
Sometimes clairsentience can be blocked by fear. For example, if a person fears they may feel something using this clairsentient gift that may scare them or that is unwelcome then this creates a block. Understand fully that your clear feeling gift is rooted in the highest of good and love. So, before you step into this work be sure to find a good healthy perspective.
A Tool for Developing Claircognizance: Automatic Writing
A very helpful tool for allowing information to flow through you, and for developing claircognizance, is automatic writing.
If you feel as if you ‘got it wrong’ or got nothing you can be sure this is your ego and. Turn off your ego and move forward. What you don’t understand yet or see as a setback or wrong absolutely has meaning. These are steps forward in the process, not back.
Claircognizant Thought vs. My Own Thoughts
Claircognizance is different than a thought. As your ability grows, you will be able to tell the difference between a thought and claircognizant knowing. Here is how:
As your logical left brain is in motion and thinks, your conscious mind is doing the work. Your conscious mind and thoughts are one. This is conscious thought and you are one with it. You might even find yourself overtaken by it. An example may be when you are organizing an event and all the surrounding details that plan to attend in the coming weeks.
When you are receiving clear knowing information from your seventh chakra however, your all-knowing consciousness is at work. In this space, you are an active observer of whatever is presenting in much the same way you observed the floating in and out information at the beginning of this mediation. As an observer of the information you are not creating it as you do in your thinking, logical mind space.
To enhance your claircognizance, focus on seeing yourself separate from anything that comes in. Resist temptation to interpret. Just look from the outside, in. Be the observer. Messages of claircognizant inspiration come from nowhere and most often have little to do with what you are thinking about in the given moment.
Claircognizance information and insights are of a high vibrational frequency and will transcend ego. If you notice low vibration thoughts of fear, worry, doubt or self-sabotage as you tune into this ability, you are not connected with your clear feeling gift. It may take time to understand Claircognizance messages. This is okay. Let the knowing come when it is ready to.
Before you go to bed at night say out loud while you also write in your journal “I am a spiritual being. I am able to access all-knowing beyond any boundaries of time. I am one with all that ever was, is or will be. I have access to my heightened senses at all times. My claircognizance is opening fully. I am feeling the messages of knowing that I am meant to today.” Writing and stating your intention out loud sets certainty within your subconscious and will amplify the blossoming of the ability.
How Claircognizance Presents
Claircognizance information and messages may come to you in many ways. They can present in inspired ideas, dreams, through automatic writing, while drawing or playing a musical instrument. Often, messages present while in meditation or while giving or receiving intuitive or psychic readings. The way they present comes in two ways:
1.) Messages from your claircognizance ability may present like a gut feeling. You sense that you just know something, yet you don’t know how. In these moments, when a gut feeling has presented you are consciously aware of messages.
2.) Messages may also be received unconsciously. Speakers, authors, and artists naturally use their gifts of claircognizance while in the depths of creating.
You may find that you consciously or unconsciously tap into the divine mind for creativity and inspiration. Both are fine. You know you are experiencing claircognizant insight because the information will feel like an idea has come from a higher consciousness. You might also then notice a feeling of being compelled to put that inspiration into fruition by taking action.
Take a moment now to consider your past few days where messages of knowing from your claircognizance may have tried to present to you. Let that memory come in. Don’t look for it. Don’t search for it. Let it find you. Did you have a feeling someone you had not seen for some time would call, and did? Did you find yourself saying, “I knew it” surrounding an event. Was there an inner knowing about a decision that you made? Did the perfect words or artistic creation come to you at just the right moment with a feeling of exuberance or excitement? Perhaps, out of what seemed like nowhere you received an inspired idea that resolved a particular issue of importance.
You may notice that as this gift grows, you become more sensitive to emotions and physical feeling sensations in your body. As the ability developed for me, I often felt a whooshing feeling through my head. These are all normal experiences you may have. Be sure to make note of all the new body sensations and experiences in your journal.
Pay attention to your nightly dreams. The feelings that present to you in this space are of higher vibrational frequency and profound messages of spiritual insight and guidance come to you here. Make note of all impressions or knowing or certainty that present. In particular, make note of the impressions of ‘knowing’ that arise in the last dream before you wake. Come back to the journal a few days later to consider the meaning as it may take a few days to decipher messages initially.
The Sensory Field Trip
One of the first tools to use to begin opening up all of your clairs is the sensory field trip. This will help you to increase your awareness of energy and sensory information. Go to a zoo, the woods or your local grocery store or farmer’s market. Take the time to really notice everything there, as if you were a little kid taking a field trip.
Take thirty or forty minutes to wander and go through an organic foods store, for example. Smell all the smells and see all the sights. Hear all the sounds that you can and feel all the feelings and body sensations. You may want to write down what you smell, see, feel and hear to keep you on track and help you focus more. Look everywhere and feel everything. Notice all textures, colors, sensations, temperatures, feelings, emotions and smells. Pick up a head of lettuce and really feel the textures, weight and temperature of the lettuce.
What is happening all around you? Is it colder or warmer in certain parts of the store? What are you feeling on the inside of your body? What are you feeling on the outside of your body? Are you drawn to look up, down, to the side for any reason? Ask yourself why if so. It’s important to notice direction, because the way things present to you - from the top, bottom, right, or left does matter. Often directional messages are correlated with time. For example, something presenting from the left can mean it is linked to the past; from the middle can indicate a link to the present, and from the right can mean future connection.
The sensory field trip is an excellent method for opening and developing the clairs. Be aware that if you are highly in tune to your abilities already or are very empathic, you may find a sensory trip to be a bit of an over load. If this is the case, just do this for a shorter time or choose a location that feels better to you.
The following meditation will be helpful to do before you go on your sensory field trip and throughout your development of this ability.
Daily meditation is essential as you hone this ability. A free Clairsentient Meditation, specifically designed to supplement this teaching, is included below for you. Your consistent listening will be invaluable.
