As a medium I am incredibly clairsentient and for those of you who do not understand what that means I will explain it to you. Being clairsentient (empathic) means that I have the ability to feel all of my emotions very deeply. I always have and I never really gave much thought as to why I reacted the way I did to any given situation be it good, bad or indifferent.
When I look back I was the only one in my family who felt like I did. I remember sitting at home watching movies with my family and I was the only one who had an emotional reaction to them. I literally ‘felt’ every moment of the movies I watched. If they were sad I would cry my way through them and if they contained violence I would avert my eyes so that I would not ‘feel’ what I saw. My sister and I went to see E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial movie one afternoon and much to my surprise I wept most of the way through it!
I also have an emotional reaction to music I really connect to. I have an eclectic taste in music which often comes as a surprise to people who know me. Although I am not a musician I need to ‘feel’ the music before I buy it.
As a clairsentient I pick up on other people’s energies particularly if they are negative in nature. This not limited to people but also places, photographs and objects. I was asked to go to a client’s home to do a reading several years ago. It was not a part of town I was familiar with and when I reached the subdivision I felt a sense of foreboding. It was a fairly new development and even though there were several houses already sold the entire area felt deserted. When I pulled up in front of my client’s house I wondered if I was at the right place. The house looked and ‘felt’ empty. This feeling did not change after I entered the house and was greeted very warmly by my client. The house was massive and beautifully decorated and yet it felt cold. While it did not frighten me it felt good to leave the area.
I also sense when something negative is taking place or is going to take place. When this happens I get pressure and pain around my temples, nausea or intense fatigue. The day my mother passed away I woke up with an intense head pressure. A few minutes later my sister called me from England to give me the news about her death I already knew what she was going to say. After I had finished talking to my sister my head pressure started to go away.
I realize that being clairsentient has caused me a lot of emotional distress over the years and although it took a while I have learned how to prevent it which is a subject I will be writing about in a future post.
