Clairsentience is the ability to interpret things through clear feeling, which is a psychic gift that is unknown to most people who possess it. Clairsentient people tend to be more emotionally in tune with themselves than others and often seem to feel their emotions more deeply than the average person.
Are you clairsentient? Here are some signs you might be.
You’re Exceptionally Empathetic
You’re able to understand how people feel and put yourself in their shoes with total ease; in fact, you do it without even trying because it just comes naturally to you.
You’re Very Sensitive To Your Feelings
You’re very in tune with your own emotions and you have trouble putting them aside to do other things. If you’re upset about something, you can’t simply ignore your negative emotions the way some others can compartmentalize.
You’re Selective About Who You Give Your Time To
Because you get so emotionally invested in everyone else’s problems when they vent to you, or simply because you’re always so tuned into others’ feelings, you get exhausted easily. Naturally, that makes you a little pickier about who you give your energy to.
You Get Along With People Easily
You might keep your circle of close friends small, but you do tend to be a bit of a social butterfly who is able to get along with others easily since you’re great at identifying and matching other people’s energy.
You Tend To Cry While Watching Movies…A Lot
Of course, the right movie can make anyone slip a tear, but you find that emotional scenes in movies tend to impact you more than other people. You really get emotionally invested in the characters, so on-screen drama affects you more.
You Struggled With Emotions Your Whole Life
For your whole life, you’ve always felt like you’ve had “more feelings” than other people or been more preoccupied with your feelings in comparison to your peers. Your emotions seem to sit heavier on you than they do for others.
You’re Good At Perceiving The Roots Of People’s Emotional Problems
When someone talks about something that’s bothering them in their day-to-day life, you tend to be able to identify the root of that negative emotion, often before even they can.
Strong Feelings Can Be Triggered By Small Things
Things that other people might be able to brush off easily or pay little mind to have a strong emotional effect on you. Similarly, a small reminder of your past emotions can make you feel them all over again.
You Never Take Things At Face Value
You rarely take what people say or do on the surface as the full story, but instead question what feelings might be motivating those things or if there is a deeper subtext to what they say.
You Tend To Consider Everyone’s Feelings In A Situation
When there’s a complicated emotional situation going on, you tend to think of how every person involved is feeling rather than just your own point of view when thinking about what’s happening.
You Have A Very Vivid Imagination
You’ve always been good at coming up with complex inner lives for characters, and, when you daydream, you think of emotionally rich stories rather than the superficial fluff that others might.
People Think Of You As An Old Soul
Even when you were young, people said that you seemed like an “old soul,” and people often come to you for emotional advice because “you seem wise beyond your years.”
You Make Very Intuitive Judgments About People
When you meet someone, you’re really good at reading their energy. Even if you don’t know someone well, you’re able to pick up on whether they’re insecure, genuine, emotionally unwell, etc.
You Get Overwhelmed Easily
Because you feel your emotions as well as those of others so easily and deeply, it is easy to get overwhelmed by all the feelings you deal with on a regular basis and need to disconnect to rest.
You React Intensely When Things Go Wrong
Since you feel your emotions so deeply, the highs tend to be very high, but, when things go south, you tend to be devastated by the negative feelings you have.
You’re Good At Perceiving People’s True Intentions
You’re good at telling early on whether people are genuine with their actions and words or if they’re putting on a front because they have a hidden agenda and want something particular.
You Feel A Deep Calling To Help Others
In your personal life, you work hard to help your friends and family through their problems and want to help them overcome emotional baggage. In your professional life, you want your work to positively impact others.
You Pick Up On Tension Easily
You can easily pick up when people in the same room have tension between them even if you don’t have any background knowledge or context that would suggest that. You could tell two people you’ve never met before are in a weird place without really even thinking about it.
You’re Very Analytical About Feelings
It’s not enough for you to feel things—you have to ruminate on them, consider different angles for why someone might feel a certain way, and analyze your own emotional state, past or present, on a regular basis.
It’s Both A Blessing And A Curse
While being clairsentient makes you more in tune with how people’s underlying feelings may impact their words and actions, it can also be mentally taxing to feel everything so deeply. However, despite all the difficulties that come with it, clairsentience really is like a superpower.
