Discovering the 4 Types of Psychic Gifts and How to Connect With Them

Updated: Jun 21, 2023

In the world of psychic gifts, which power do you resonate with most?

Discovering Psychic Gifts

The way we perceive the world is often categorized into the five senses: taste, smell, touch, feel, and hear. But this way of thinking only limits the scope of what we can actually perceive. In fact, many of us are born with a range of psychic gifts that when cultivated can help us navigate life and the realms outside of the five senses.

There are four kinds of intuition: clairsentience, clairaudience, clairvoyance, and claircognizance, each with a unique purpose. Could you be in tune with any of these spiritual gifts? Read on to discover more.

Clairsentience: The Gift of Clear Feeling

Trust your intuition; she’s your internal guidance system.

Let’s begin by exploring the most common psychic gift of all, Clairsentience—the gift of clear feeling.

You know that feeling you get in the pit of your tummy when you know that someone is lying to you? Or those butterflies that ignite upon meeting a special someone. That’s the gift of clairsentience.

Feelings convey clairsentient messages such as having a gut instinct, sensing the atmosphere in a room or grasping a sense of others' emotions. Has there been a time when you walk into a room full of people and instantly pick up on someone's energy? Or you may meet a stranger for the first time and feel an instant connection as if you have known them all your life. These are experiences of psychic sensory awareness. Those familiar feelings often can’t be described other than a sense of intuition that shows up through emotions.

Whenever you need a little guidance in making a decision, tune into your clairsentience abilities for advice; they’ll always have your back!

Clairaudience: The Gift of Hearing Spirit Messages

Listen to the voice within.

Clairaudience: The gift of hearing spirit messages

Clairaudience is a psychic sense of hearing which at first may sound like a thought with more clarity and volume—the proof is in the name “audi.” As a psychic sense of hearing, clairaudience appears like a more transparent, louder thought at first that only you can hear. As opposed to feeling spirits, psychic hearing can come up in the form of words, sounds, or music from a source that is not noticeable to the normal ear.

You don’t always have to sit in silence and ask a question to hear this voice; these messages can appear without warning. Let’s say you haven’t spoken with your sibling in a long time, and subconsciously, you feel guilty about the lack of connection. Your inner voice may guide you with a message saying, “call your sister/brother.”

When someone thinks of ‘hearing voices in their head,’ it can seem daunting at first, but not to worry, as these messages often come in a calm and soothing tone rather than anything dark.

If you have ever experienced specific words appearing in your mind and coming through with meaning, you may have the psychic gift of clairaudience. It’s a direct reflection of your spirit guides opening up to you to deliver specific messages for you or another person close to you. Messages through clairaudience are often short, sweet, and, most importantly, direct—there’s no room for vagueness here.

Let’s say you wish to discover guidance from your spirit guides as to which direction in life to take or which path to venture down. By asking a question and waiting for the answer, you may hear a phrase such as “be patient and see what the next three months bring.” Or if you want to get specific and can’t decide between pursuing your career or finding new love, the answer could be “love.” There’s no beating around the bush here when it comes to Clairaudience; you get what you ask for, and what’s meant to be will be.

When you embrace your psychic gifts and follow your spiritual pursuits, you're likely to be exposed to an entire world of magic that you didn't even know existed.

Clairvoyance: The Gift of Clear Seeing

This psychic gift is your spiritual big screen.

Clairvoyance: The gift of clear seeing

Clairvoyance presents the gift of clear seeing—you see things through your inner eyes.

From the characteristics of a specific person to future scenarios, psychic seeings and messages can be expressed metaphorically, but each is unique depending on the receiver.

Have you ever witnessed a mini-play inside your head of a specific scenario that later comes to reality? That’s clairvoyance, and those with this type of psychic gift are often known as Starseeds. These visions can be anything from the characteristics of a specific person to a symbolic representation of your future. What you see depends solely on the individual's gifts and ability to tune in.

Those with clairvoyant gifts can tune into the past, present, and future situations. By tapping into your inner eyes, you have the ability to predict the future, embrace the present, or relieve the past.

Not only can you see images and symbols, but with the gift of clear seeing, you are more likely able to pick up on people's auras, the spiritual beams of light surrounding a person's physical body.Next time you meet with someone, why not try this out for yourself? Focus your gaze on the outer layer of their body to see if you can pick up on any colorful hues.

Claircognizance: The Psychic Gift of Clear Knowing

Discover the beauty in knowing.

Claircognizance: The psychic gift of clear knowing

Claircognizance is intuitive knowledge without reasoning or evidence; it is simply knowing. Feelings can be very powerful, and they may appear as intuitive thoughts. With claircognizance, a person is aware of something without prior experience. They don’t have to receive any background or relevant information, as their intuition plays a key role in their abilities.

When it comes to making choices, does making the right one always come naturally to you? For example, let’s say you have two routes you can take home, both of which are of similar arrival times, but one is through the country, and the other is through the city. It's just about time to leave work to head home, and you suddenly know that the country route will be more efficient tonight since you're confident it will be quicker. That’s your claircognizance gifts kicking in!

Think of it like an automatic download from Source that guides you in the right direction, quite literally sometimes, and has your best interest at heart.

In essence, claircognizance is about listening to your gut feelings and allowing your intuition to guide you.

How to Connect With Your Psychic Gifts

Now that we have explored all four of these magical psychic gifts let’s dive deeper into how to connect with them to unleash your power.

How to connect with your psychic gifts

  1. Burning awakening essential oils, candles, or incense like bay laurel, palo santo, myrrh, Roman chamomile, nutmeg, sandalwood, and St. John’s Wort can activate psychic energies.

  2. Carrying third-eye crystals and stones can also awaken psychic abilities in harmony with healing your chakras. Amethyst and Labradorite, in particular, are excellent for strengthening intuition and promoting psychic ability. In addition to wearing them as jewelry, placing them on an altar, or keeping them by your bedside, you can also meditate with them.

By dancing with the unknown, embracing infinite possibilities, and believing in what is unseen, you unlock your intuition and psychic abilities—an invitation to connect with your spirit guides and realms beyond the physical world.

When you embrace and develop these psychic gifts, you can enhance the well-being of all life on this planet and create a deeper connection with Source. You may have experienced one or more of these psychic gifts at some point in your life yet didn’t view them as psychic gifts per se. However, if your intuition is strong and you feel at one with the spiritual realm, then there are ways that you can tap into your psychic gifts and harness the power that comes with them.

It doesn’t take a psychic to tune into these psychic gifts; many people have the ability to tune into the power of seeing, knowing, feeling, and hearing. The first step is believing in yourself, and I would love to guide you there.
