I have just had the most amazing experience. I was phoned by Barclays bank fraud department to say that two transactions had been made on my credit card and they wanted to confirm with me that they were with my consent. One transaction was for 400.00 GBP to Amazon and the other was 700.00 GBP to a union credit bank to someone in the USA. I explained I had not authorised these payments. The lady then tried to instill in me the fear that someone was using my bank details to make fraudulent claims pretending to be me. Something didn’t feel right with the call – you know when you’re a kid growing up and you just sense that something is wrong in the adult world, even though to all outward appearances the situation seems on the straight and level. Something within me decided not to play ball and instead said that with no disrespect to the caller, I would hang up and call Barclays myself.
Barclay Card is not the easiest company to get through to. There is a lot of automation to go through before you actually get to speak to another human-being, but eventually I managed to connect with a Barclay’s representative. After answering security questions, I discovered that the first call was a hoax, that the caller was trying to get me to give them my card details.
The reason it is such an amazing experience was that I have reconnected to my sixth sense or clairsentience. To me it’s a feeling in our bodies that we had as children but many of us lose this genuine feeling as we grow up. It’s not a gut feeling, that is something completely different. It’s a whole-body experience about everything, a very clear sense that you know what you are feeling is true. A natural ability to feel beneath the surface of any conversation to discern the energy behind the words spoken. I am regaining my trust of myself when something doesn’t feel right and to hold to that feeling, rather than giving my power away to another person. Once I would have been inclined to fall for the honey trap that was being set for me, firstly by playing the victim: why me? then going into overwhelm: why is this happening to me? I have too much going on right now to deal with this: someone help me! Of course, the lady on the other end of the phone on the first call was so ‘nice’ and so concerned: she was there to support me and get this all sorted out. She just needed a few details from me. But as I have said, there was just something about this call that didn’t feel right as a result I didn’t go into victim mode or get engulfed by emotions. Why?
I have reconnected to a sense of awareness which we all have but don’t seem to take much notice of. You know those times where you can feel that something doesn’t feel okay with a friend: you have sensed the feeling before they even tell you that they have a problem. Being able to sense other people’s emotions without taking them on is a great example of clairsentience, it gives us the ability to feel or observe our surroundings without getting caught up in the soup of life that surrounds us.
Reconnecting back to my awareness has supported me in many ways especially at work, for example in meetings I can discern those people who are in resistance; behind their niceness is a certain tone in their voice that gives them away. Before regaining my awareness, I would not have noticed this and fallen for their ‘niceness.’ This can be a front for anger, jealousy, frustration, competition, comparison etc., or worse – if I am ‘nice’ to you that means you will be ‘nice’ to me. It’s a disguise we can use not to get hurt.
Family situations are so easy to read and the emotional blackmail that can go on between siblings no longer bothers me, neither does the complaining about their spouses because I can feel what their part has been in the situation, so I don’t take sides but listen to what they need to say without getting involved any more, whereas before, I would jump straight in to give out advice on how to ‘fix’ the situation. I wasn’t able to sense that maybe they just wanted to have someone to talk to without being given any advice on how to ‘fix’ them or the problem. It’s actually such a relief because it takes me out of the equation, and I become a by-stander watching the play unfold.
I guess we could say we are all in a big play and to be able to extract oneself from it and just watch how it plays out without being a participant in it, changes everything.
My clairsentience (clear- sense) is normal to me now. I was able to discern the energy that was coming through the lady on the phone so that I could sense something wasn’t quite okay with the call. It was confirmed by Barclay Card that there were no fraudulent transactions on my account and that everything was okay. This leaves me in the full appreciation of all that I have learnt and am now putting into practice which is to not give my power away to another person, institution or situation but to discern the energy coming through them.
