How often do we go about life, our everyday, and limit ourselves to the superficial, to the outside world and to our five senses?
How often do we rely on the above to determine or experience our reality?
But what if there were a part of us that we have not yet utilised? A part of us that was very natural to us as children, but as we got older we suppressed our knowing of?
And this is when I am talking about our ability to feel and discern energy – our clairsentience or sixth sense.
As we enter the education system we get so conditioned into becoming great spellers, great leaders, great writers, great mathematicians and great scientists, that we actually forget that we were great to begin with – before we did any of that.
What if the education system left ‘the true you’ out of the equation? And instead taught you how to be everything else and to value what you could do, not how gorgeous and special you uniquely are?
By virtue of this, our sixth sense, our natural ability to feel what is going on for us and the world around us, is under-developed. Therefore, because we go through life so focussed on what we are doing and what we can achieve, we actually miss a part of us that supports us to be in life, the greatest tool in our tool belt – and that is our ability to feel situations, feel who we are and feel if something feels true for us or not. Having this internal relationship with ourselves is actually a strength that supports us in life. In turn we can read life, detach and not get as burnt or affected by people’s emotions, situations, ideals or beliefs.
As a beautiful example, we could examine a school child’s home environment – but this is no different to the adult at work or simply the human being in ‘life.’
When that child comes home after a day at school, are they asked:
- How was your day at school?
- How was your day at school?… How did you feel today? How did the teachers feel? Did you have an alright day with your friends? Did anything go on in your day that you found challenging or that you appreciated? How do you feel now at the end of your day compared to the beginning? Etc…
By virtue of really asking the questions, it allows the child to express what truly happened that day in every facet. These conversations validate the child’s ability to feel and confirm that what they have experienced is worth speaking about, empowering the child to feel more confident in themselves (for example at school), knowing that they can trust what they feel and be supported when they come home. Therefore, by our not accepting the ‘it was good’ response when it may have been an intense day, the child doesn’t have to doubt or discount all that they experienced inside. Additionally, it allows the child to let go of what happened that day so they are fresh and ready for the next.
This may not need to be a long conversation every day, but beginning to have these conversations will develop a level of trust in your relationship where the child can know that they come home to an environment where they will be supported, loved, and have a safe place to talk about the day and let it go.
However, this requires the responsibility of the parents to truly create a space where this can occur, making a commitment to truly sit down and listen and put the time aside to connect with their child in this way, and allowing it to become a natural part of their daily rhythm in due course. Otherwise, the ‘it was good’ answer is accepted, simply because we ourselves are so busy with life that we may conveniently think that we do not have enough time in our day to have such discussions with our children.
By beginning to open up these conversations, we may just realise that the child is actually feeling a lot and a deeper level of relationship may arise between the two of you as you become aware that your child has a lot to say… and so do you! Hence, it is an invaluable time to spend with our children as it has a great purpose and personal development element attached to it, and hence, it is not a waste of time at all…
So, a question may be, “why do we avoid having such conversations with our children?” Could a possible answer be that supporting a child in their awareness of what they are feeling may just prompt us to do the same and hence look at our lives – and all that we feel is true and not true in our lives? It takes a lot of courage to express how we truly feel, as there is a vulnerability involved in this.
So… don’t be fooled by the first question, which can simply create an answer like ‘good’ – which is the standard answer these days – where the deeper experiences are not expressed. Consequently, this can either create a bottled-up effect of emotions, depression and lack of confidence or issues at school, at home etc. As a result, this momentum can continue into our adult lives, and affect all parts of our life.
All that is required is to support one another in true expression. Expression is actually good medicine – the medicine of letting go of what happened in our day, and by saying it out loud allowing ourselves to get support for it, and realising how much we do actually know and can feel, and in other words ‘read between the lines’… and build on this!
So, how was your day?
The child just might say… “Well, I felt really bouncy and joyful when I woke up, but the moment I entered the school gates I felt quite a bit of tension as the environment can get a bit crazy. My friends were beginning to be a bit clique-like and so I felt a bit excluded at times, which made me feel sad, but at times I felt like I was in with them. The teacher felt a bit angry and stressed today which didn’t feel good – I didn’t enjoy class as much and felt like I turned my joy-fullness down. And when I got a star for my great work in mathematics (which I love), I felt the other students get jealous. So I had a big day… it’s great to be home.”
Now this is a whole lot of better medicine than the answer of ‘good’… and this can lead to greater discussions and understandings of what the child is being challenged by and hence highlighting the areas to support and work on.
So, do we really know what is truly going on for one another? Could beginning to tap into our own sense of feeling be the key to supporting another in theirs?
We are all very sensitive people, and we all feel a lot. We feel when someone is angry, when someone is sad, when someone is joyful and when someone is jealous etc. We also feel when something feels true or not, and therefore we have the opportunity to pick the choice that feels true or not. To a large extent, our awareness of the fact that we can feel energy, emotions, situations, etc. has been lost by a world that does not foster this.
However, this may just be the key to unlocking what we have always felt missing from life – the fostering and deep honouring of our clairsentience.

Clairsentience – Our Sixth Sense
Coincidence or Clairsentience – Understanding Our 6th Sense

I know several families that have young children just starting nursery. It was interesting how they didn’t want to go but society insists that children go to nursery as it supports the parents who have to work and within a few weeks the children had slotted into the way of the nursery but there is a part of them that is closing down. So how do we support our children to attend nursery and then school without shutting down this amazing quality they have, we all have. We all do this we shut down a very natural part of us so that we can fit into the parameters of what society expects of us. For some of us we never recover this quality or vitality back we go through the rest of life shutdown and withdrawn.
Is it possible that we are conditioned from young to as you say Arianne
” limit ourselves to the superficial, to the outside world and to our five senses?”
This would then have a very dulling effect on our bodies, when our bodies are dulled we miss out on the magic of life because we have no sense of the magic at play that we are surrounded by.
Teachers and parents have a lot to learn from children in knowing that they are already amazing.
Putting a True relationship to our senses, our intuition, should be our first sense as we are feeling much more than we allow ourselves to admit to.
Greg I totally agree with you we are feeling much more than we allow ourselves to admit. I was talking to a Universal Medicine practitioner and I was telling them about a family situation and by expressing what I had seen, I was able to feel the magic at play and how when we let go of control it allows us to see just how much magic there is in the world that goes unnoticed because we are so busy trying to control life.
Absoulutely Mary, exposing the Truth is leave a more complete understanding of how a Soul-full being expresses as a normal way from our innately natural evolutionary path.
Life makes so much more sense when I read the energy underneath it all.
When I allow myself to understand what is going on through what I am feeling it is quite remarkable as to how much I can learn and how much I am aware of. It is something we can all do (even though I used to tell myself I couldn’t); it simply needs to be practiced given that using clairsentience was so conditioned out of us during younger childhood.
Thank you Arianne, my feeling is that we all should start to re-establish our relationship with our sixth sense as it is an important aspect of our evolution and we should all understand this, as we were all in some way shut down from sharing what we were feeling and it is now time to be transparent with what we feel.
To be with another we must know how to be with ourselves, hence the importance of developing a relationship with ourselves based on love, care and understanding. When we stop judging ourselves and remember how to speak with a deeper level of vulnerability we will be able to offer that to our children and others around us.
Absolutely Lucy, the minimum we should be in relationship with ourselves is by treating us with decency and respect.
As kids we all naturally have this clairsentience, but then we forget about it or bury it and stop using it to fit into the world as we know it. But in the end it is always there, ready for us to re-activate it.
There is so much we can pick up on that is not seen – we can walk into a room and know if there has been an argument. We can be in conversation with someone and hear them say one thing but really mean another thing with their body. There are many unseen cues that tell us much and this is what clairsentience is about – honing into those unseen things and understanding them – and hence in the process, we get a much truer picture of life and how things operate.
I can definitely say that I suppressed my inner knowing as I grew up, it wasn’t valued as the most amazing attribute that one can ever have and so I too dismissed the gift that we are all born with. So I feel it is very important to listen to what children have to say and how they feel because we do all know exactly what is going on in our surroundings if we are allowed the freedom to express without fear of ridicule.
So true, we do all know, we are simply not accustomed to discussing it. The more we can deepen the relationship with our inner knowing and make the less familiar, familiar, the more we will build a relationship with listening and hearing what is said below the niceties of every day communication.
Giving a voice to our feelings is such a nurturing thing to do, I find. We are so scared of getting it ‘wrong’ and we push away the uncomfortable feelings, and shut down that part of us that does have something to say and the more we do that, the more likely what eventually comes out of our mouth is loaded with unexpressed emotions.
It would definitely be awesome if our education systems everywhere included classes on energetic awareness and supported children to grow this aspect of their wisdom, as well as learning all the other stuff we need to live in the world.
What you describe here is very helpful for all of us, young and old. We all need to accept and reactivate our ability to feel and understand and start to live in a way that honours how very sensitive we all are.
Clairsentience is not just a beauty in itself for what it helps to see and feel regarding others. It is also beautiful to feel the beauty of surrendering the body to it.
Eduardo Feldman absolutely, to reconnect to the inner beauty that we all hold within us is the best medicine we can give to ourselves. To drop the resistance and surrender brings us back to our inner essence the gloriousness of who we truly are.
Too many of our kids say ‘it was ok’ when asked how was school today – I know I used to and then that’s the end of the conversation. It’s our responsibility as parents to read past that comment and to dig a little deeper as often more is going on which the child then internalises. Being open and talking about our day is a great healing for the whole family.
There is so much in the questions we ask and our willingness to listen to the answers. My sense is it is a constant learning and an absolute pleasure to do so because we are offered the opportunity to free ourselves from shackles that have kept us trapped from relationships with those around us without even knowing it.
I agree, true expression is a good medicine, it is also very empowering to share honestly your feelings with another without holding back as opposed to keeping it all inside you, which over time, all that supressed expression has to find a release, which may not be so pleasant, but absolutely necessary as the body becomes clogged up.
