Find out more about these amazing gifts that mankind is endowed with that enhances our being.

Every school child knows about the five traditional senses of sight, sound, taste, smell, and touch. However, some additional senses, called the psychic senses also exist. These sixth senses helps us navigate through life by instilling sensitivity awareness. Furthermore, our sixth senses provide us with useful intuitive insights. Specifically, these include imagination, imaging pictures, sensing the truth in matters, or significant events about to happen. Importantly, they also warn us of dangerous situations.

The Psychic Senses are also known as extrasensory perception or the sixth sense.  To help individuals new to psychic studies understand them, I’m  listing what these psychic abilities are.

Notably, you’ll notice that each sense listed begins with the word “Clair”. The prefix “Clair” comes from the French word meaning “clear.” Here are the five psychic senses explained:


    The art of psychically seeing in your inner mind. Associated with the Third Eye, or Sixth Chakra.


    The art of psychically hearing with your mind’s inner hearing. Associated with the Throat, or Fifth Chakra. The Earbud chakras are tied to the Fifth Chakra.


    The art of psychically feeling through your physical body. Associated with the Solar Plexus, or Third Chakra.


    The art of psychically feeling others’ emotions. Associated with the Heart, or Fourth Chakra.


    The art of psychically knowing is an awareness or thought previously unknown to us that bears truth. Associated with the Crown, or Seventh Chakra.

  • INTUITION (Our Bonus Sense):

    Another sense we have is intuition. This sense is perhaps the most important psychic sense of all. Our intuition is a feeling or sensation in the gut area which subtly tells us something which reveals itself as being true. Intuition is associated with the Third and Sixth Chakras.
