Clairsentience – Our Sixth Sense

 By Andrew Mooney, Physiotherapist, Complementary health practitioner, Cornwall, UK

I recently attended a medical course on the nature of pain. Presented in this lecture was the current popular scientific theory that as human beings we perceive our environment based on our five senses and own mental projections and best guesses, and then respond accordingly; that we are constantly perceiving, processing and reacting to our environment based on our sensory systems, previous experiences, ideals and beliefs and whether reality meets our own expectations or not. Effectively we are at the mercy of our minds, our nervous system and our five senses, from which we form our experience of life and the choices we make.

This perception of what is happening outside and inside our bodies is a crucial thing, for in the case of pain it can be the difference between someone having chronic, debilitating pain and someone not having any pain at all.

It makes sense that our perceptions are influenced by our five senses and our previous experiences, as well as our ideals and beliefs that we hold about the world, but could there be more to this process than a nervous system dominated approach?

A sixth sense?

What if there was a sixth sense that involved the intelligence of the whole body, not just the nervous system? An innate sense that can feel and discern the quality of energy passing through our bodies at any moment in time? Could it be possible that the quality of energy we feel could actually give us a broader and richer perception of life than simply reacting from our nervous system?

The fact is that we all do have a sixth sense – known as clairsentience – and by tuning into this innate, deeper awareness we can supersede and even bypass our ideals, beliefs, emotions, gut feelings and expectations and bring ourselves to a more accurate reading of what is truly going on around and within us.

What is love?

Recently I had a discussion with a scientist about the energetic quality of love. We agreed that it is very possible that love has a certain energetic vibration that everyone can feel and identify if they choose to be aware of it. It is a beholding energy of understanding, deep respect, connection, and equalness that we can feel within ourselves and also experience with other people. It has warmth and tenderness; it is what we feel when we hold a baby or young child in our arms.

There are many re-interpretations of the word ‘love’ and therefore many versions and meanings of this word but ultimately, it has only one true energetic meaning which our clairsentience can feel or register. Therefore, we do innately know if something is truly loving or not.

Likewise, truth has an energetic quality or vibration, which can be felt or detected if we allow ourselves to be aware of it. Have we not sensed at some point in our lives when someone is lying to us or not telling us the full truth, despite their appearances, gestures or the actual words being spoken? 

So what if we based our daily lives on consciously reading energy rather than living from our mind and our nervous system, seeking security and safety, based on avoiding past negative experiences?

What if we actively used our clairsentience, in combination with our other five senses, to make sense of our lives and our experiences, rather than basing life solely on our nervous system and our intellect?

Clarisentience – the way forward

For me clairsentience is the only way to make full sense of the world and how it is. Whenever I have tried to explain the world based only on my 5 senses (which gave me a certain picture of physical reality) I have struggled to fully understand life and the world. When I use my clairsentience, it opens up a much richer, broader and deeper understanding of why and how things are occurring. In fact when I observe life in this way, many events or experiences I would normally perceive as negative when viewed from my five senses only, have taken on a very different and even positive meaning and understanding when I have engaged my clairsentience and fully energetically read the situation. This revelation alone is huge for medicine, psychology and the science of pain.

Life is Energetic

To view life as energetic as well as physical makes a lot of sense, as it can give us access to a wisdom that can shed light on much of human life that our intellect or our five senses cannot.

For example, we have all had the experience of walking into a room and sensing or feeling the ‘atmosphere’ present, which contradicts the physical appearance of how things seem to be. We have all felt or sensed how someone else was feeling without having any other physical indication that could tell us this information.

It is possible to distract and numb ourselves away from our clairsentience but this doesn’t change the fact that it is always there. Everyone is born with this sense equally. It is not a special psychic ability, gift or genetic mutation or even a learnt skill. It is innate.

So if we all have this amazing ability ‘at our fingertips’ so to speak, why don’t we use it more often? What gets in the way of us using our clairsentience?

What gets in the way is our intellect, our rational mind, our beliefs, our ideals, our needs and expectations, our arrangements with others and with life, our fears, and our need for security.

Ironically, we use our other five senses often to dull or distract ourselves from our clairsentience. For example we like eating foods that taste good but actually make our bodies feel heavy, bloated and actually dull our awareness and ability to read energy.

Serge Benhayon has been sharing with the world for some years now on how important it is for us to reawaken our ability to feel and discern energy. Through his own clairsentience and intuition he has been able to access a level of intelligence that is clearly way beyond anything the human intellect can access and easily answers, explains and exposes many of the conundrums of human life.

Serge Benhayon is not special or gifted or unique in this ability. We all have equal access to this level of intelligence, wisdom and understanding of life that goes way beyond our five senses and physicality, way beyond even spirituality and the ethereal aspects of life. Honouring our natural ability to feel and discern energy in our bodies begins the process of connecting us back to a true and natural way of living as human beings.

  1. This sixth sense is well documented, discussed and researched… not only that it can be felt. What annoys science is that it cannot be measured and so there is this disconnect where science says if we can’t measure it, then it does not exist (Aristotle and Descartes have alot to answer for). Perhaps a more whole-istic view is needed to understand the rich world that is full of energy that we live in.

  2. It is lovely the way that you have described love as a vibrational quality that can be felt, and especially with children, where there is less if not any conditions on the love that they allow themselves to emanate.

  3. Developing clairsentience back into my life has meant that I understand the world, interactions, my body, in a more intimate way. One that provides a deeper understanding, less agitation of my nervous system (less reactions and anxiousness) and a more steady and settled feeling in my body and through day. It has shown me that an energetic understanding of life is crucial for health and well-being.

  4. It makes sense that when we run our body by our nervous system we experience an imbalance and different perception of ourselves and life than if we built a true relationship with our body and our awareness to feel energy and respond accordingly.

  5. “We agreed that it is very possible that love has a certain energetic vibration that everyone can feel and identify if they choose to be aware of it.” Absolutely. and it is this awareness that is key, for when we shut it down it is easy to deny that we can feel anything within us.

  6. We are very good in medicine at dealing with and managing illness and disease at the physical level but can we also consider the energetic forces that might be at play that are precipitating into the physical body? Perhaps this would go a long way to preventing health conditions before they appear in the physical body?

  7. If we only perceive life in terms our five senses, past experiences and beliefs, we will look for possible threats to our security and tend to judge life in terms of right and wrong. Our sixth sense on the other hand can lead to a much greater understanding of life where we observe the whole rather than judge and react.

  8. I agree Andrew the depth and richness of understanding that comes with connecting to and honouring our clairsentience is deeply powerful and the only way we can truly live life. It is happening whether we like or not; it’s just whether we are shutting it down and ignoring it or if we are embracing it and honouring what we feel. We always have a choice.

  9. It is impossible to make sense of the world on a purely physical level, it just does not work. This sixth sense answers the questions and can be connected to by us all.

  10. We can so often ‘feel’ when something is not right, but are not always able to put words to those feelings. But more often than not, when we trust what we feel and go along with that, the resulting outcome benefits everyone and is mulitfaceted.

  11. Our movements when made with love ring joy to all our cells as the union of one with all part of the body is felt from within and celebrated from our bodies in reflection to one another.

  12. It is funny how we refer to our clairsentience as our ‘sixth sense’ (if indeed we acknowledge it at all!) when it is the very first sense we use in the womb long before the other five have developed.

  13. Being able to feel and sense energy with true clarity enables us to discern the truth of what is going on around us so that we are ready to respond when needed and having access to this innate ability we have a deeper understanding and awareness of life from what we are feeling from our body rather than our mind that cannot feel or discern the truth.

    1. Often this energy is felt and read with such clarity and we can ignore or down play what we feel, but it is the power in reading and confirming that there is more to understand in each connection being more powerful when we bring the depth of understanding through our clairsentience.

  14. “It is possible to distract and numb ourselves away from our clairsentience but this doesn’t change the fact that it is always there.” So true Andrew, and we are masters at finding a myriad of ways to do this. I have found the more I connect with my own clairsentience, the more I become aware of the different ways I have numbed my own body, and bit by bit they fall away. And bit by bit I am able to feel more and more of what is truth and what is not.

  15. Being open and awake to read situations has supported me in so many ways to understand myself, and others, in greater depth. When we read things it’s also less likely that we take things personally: it’s easier to read the plain facts of a situation when we stick with what we can read without getting lost in the emotion of it.

  16. The mysteries of life are no mystery at all when we realise that our sixth sense is something very common and available to us all. It is not a gift or special talent, it is there to be found when we start to listen to what we feel, explore, experiment and become a student of life and ourselves.

  17. ‘I have struggled to fully understand life and the world. When I use my clairsentience, it opens up a much richer, broader and deeper understanding of why and how things are occurring.” This is key Andrew as without the energetic understanding life simply does not make sense.

  18. Our felt sense in life can offer us a more comprehensive view of life rather than just our perception which is filtered through our senses and previous experience and beliefs.
