I found this exercise in a book I read. I think it is actually pretty revealing in giving clues into how you naturally perceive things. You know, like some people are more right brain thinkers and others are more left. Everyone senses things differently so working with sensing energy is no different. Where one person may hear more naturally another person will see more naturally. Remember, we all have ALL of these senses, just some will be more natural than others.
Which one of these exercises comes easiest to you? Which is the next easiest? put them in order. All of these are clues into what will come easiest and what areas you probably will need to work at if you wish to develop those senses.
To understand how psychic information can be received using the five Clairs, try these simple exercises and see what works most naturally for you.
Clairvoyance: Imagine your favorite cartoon character in as much detail as possible. The picture that you are painting in your mind is quite similar to the clairvoyant impressions you would receive, appearing like a daydream.
Clairaudience: Count in your mind from one to ten. Wait, now recite the alphabet. Okay, stop. Now do both at the same time, without thinking, A1, B2, C3. For those of you who have an easy time doing this quickly, you will find that receiving verbal messages will work the best for you.
Clairsentience: Think about the feeling that you get in the pit of your stomach when you’re excited or frightened. That is the same way that a psychic message will make you react. Do you find yourself prone to taking on the feelings of those around you or are you deeply affected by watching the news? If so, this will be an easy way for you to pick up psychic impressions.
Clairalience: Experiment with your sense of smelling by asking yourself what memories are brought to mind when you smell particular scents. Is it easy for you to associate certain events or people with specific scents or aromas? Can you imagine a person or time just by smelling a perfume or cologne? Are you keenly aware of smells that others don’t notice?
Clairambience: Next time you eat, explore if the taste of certain foods reminds you of a person or time. Are you a person who cooks by taste, not a recipe, or thinks of yourself as having refined taste buds? When you are thinking about a particular food, do you taste it instead of visualizing it?
