If clairsentience is truly innate and natural, then how is it that most of us remain completely ignorant of it?
Clairsentience is the ability to read, feel and identify the energetic quality of what is going on for oneself, other people and the world in general. It confers the ability to observe situations without being hooked by them as we simply register and clock energy without reaction. In connection with the inner heart centre, we sense and feel what corresponds to our essence and what does not. In fact, all the nuances of energy are felt without judgement. We may feel a person is lying or disregarding themselves or us, but understand that this is their choice of energy – no more, no less.
Clairsentience is the natural complement to the fact that “If everything is energy, therefore, everything is BECAUSE of energy” (Serge Benhayon). If, as the Ancient Wisdom presents, we are actually beings that are made of, and sustained by, energy, it is logical that our Creator would provide us with the ability to read energy – that of ourselves, of others, of situations, places, events and occurrences.
I have observed this ability in myself and in many others who are reconnecting with the centre enhoused in the physical body in the chest – the inner heart – where the ability to feel and read energy resides. The sense of when something feels ‘right,’ when something is potentially harming, the awareness of a need to connect with a distant loved one the nanosecond that they are troubled, the ability to feel energies that are precursors to illness in the body, an impeccable sense of timing, knowing how to truly care for and nurture oneself – these are all basic expressions of this ability to feel and to sense energy from within oneself without reliance upon external input or advice, but from a sense of feeling that then brings a knowing.
The Ancient Wisdom presents that all children are born with their clairsentience completely intact. Working as a Primary School teacher, my experience confirms this is so until children reach a certain age – usually somewhere between the ages of 7 and 12. At some stage in this age range there is a switch of allegiance from the clairsentient inner heart to the head, where children become more mind-based, more mentally driven and then leave behind the simplicity of feeling and reading energy from the inner heart. Instead children have learned to relate to how things look and to the ideals of success and achievement given to them by the outside world of parents, education, media, culture and religion.
Thereafter there seems to be a collective sense of convenient amnesia – we wilfully ‘forget’ that we have this amazing yet natural ability within us so we engage with the world on its terms, not on what is being felt within us.
Realising this, I could not but ask: “How could this possibly be? We wouldn’t willingly suppress our vision, our hearing or any of our five physical senses, so why does this occur with clairsentience?”
My understanding of the why and the how also came from within the Ancient Wisdom teachings, which present that we are a tri-partite being: we are human, indisputably so, but we also have a spirit and a Soul. Human – spirit – Soul – three aspects, one being.
Human life is dominated by the spirit, which prefers and uses mental and emotional energy as its fuel to sustain its way of being. The connection with and use of our clairsentience basically sounds the death knell of the spirit that keeps its human aspect ignorant of the spirit’s own existence and enforces its mental idealism and beliefs so that it can maintain its domination of human life. Effectively we imprison ourselves in our own minds, locked away from the Love that we innately are and with the key to our energetic freedom, clairsentience, hidden away inside of us. This happened to all of us the moment we chose the spirit’s mind over our own clairsentient inner heart.
To remain clairsentiently aware, or to reconnect with this awareness, means that one realises there is a choice of energy and that one can choose Soul. This exposes the existence of the tri-partite being; that we are human, run by a spirit, with a choice to return to our origins – to our Soul. For most, this awareness brings up the clairsentiently felt fact that we are indeed Beings having a human experience that is not ultimately who we truly are. This awareness has long been withheld from us by our own spirit, as it is the forerunner of the ending of the spirit’s dominion over human life.
What other reason could there be to systematically bludgeon out the awareness we are all born with so that by the end of Primary School there is little or no clairsentience remaining in conscious awareness? It has been exchanged and overridden by the ruminations of the mind with its ideals, beliefs, expectations and drive for success – the mental prison referred to earlier.
Clairsentience also reconnects us with what we innately are – Love. It has been my experience that once this is felt, there can be no further selling out to the cold, loveless values of the spirit – the aspirations, goals and drive for success, the self-loathing and self worth issues, the competitive individualism, because energetically we readily feel how empty and worthless they are.
Instead we feel our inner home of Love and commit to returning to who we truly are, feeling our way, loving step by loving step.
So how come so many of us are ignorant of our clairsentience? Do we need to look to the ‘enemy within’ our own minds, to our own choices and to the energy we are choosing to live our lives by? Could it be as simple as discarding ignorance and then choosing differently?
Perhaps our best option is to allow ourselves to feel the truth of these questions.
