Have you ever gone into your favorite coffee shop, the same coffee shop you have been going to for years, and you get your favorite everything (latte, cinnamon roll, newspaper) …but today something just isn’t the same? You sit there wondering, “Do I have a cold or a headache coming on?” “Why can’t I find joy in my favorite spot with my favorite drink? The weather is beautiful, everything is how is should be, I feel fine, I was happy a minute ago…but now, I feel like something came over me.” Anger or a sadness so deep you think it came from a gapping black whole of nothingness. There is no reason for this feeling. Then you start to wonder…is it even my feeling at all?
Clairsentience is also known as “Clear feeling”. You feel it all with this wonderful ability, which can be helpful or downright annoying at times. If you research this ability you will find a whole lot of people telling you the same thing…“You just feel it. You will learn to harness it over time.”
I call bullshit. Most Empaths and Psychics feel stuff 24/7, I mean, what else is new? “Learn to harness it”, for real? That’s all you got for me? What happens when your feelings never feels the same? What if there are no emotional patterns? No consistencies? What happens when you don’t know where the emotions came from? What happens when you ride public transit every day, to and from work, and you feel like you never get a private emotion for yourself?
I’m here to tell you with tough love…it will never get easier. You just have to learn to cope with what you feel every moment of every day. There is no harnessing this ability, there is no control, it will always come in waves…and just like the ocean, the minute you think you have it figured out, a rogue wave comes along and envelopes you. The very second you feel complacent in your abilities, turning your back to the sea, next thing you know there is a swell covering your head, giving you a face of sand, and disorienting you so badly that you don’t know which way is up. My advice is to understand that you will always change, your surroundings will always change, you will always learn new things, you will always encounter new people; therefore you will always have to keep your eyes on the rising and falling waves.
We each come up with our own coping skills that work specifically for you. No two coping mechanisms are alike. Here are a few of mine, which I hope help some of you cope in your day to day life.
- I stopped riding all forms of public transit. I keep herb satchels and protective stones in my car to create barriers.
- I only allow a minimal amount of electronics into my bedroom because the EMF fields cause spikes in activity.
- I do not watch the news, the last thing I need to do is subject myself to the worlds fear. If I do, it is minimal and it is read in blog format.
- I keep satchels of rosemary under my pillow to ward off nightmares.
- I put Black Tourmaline under my mattress to create a protective shield while I sleep.
- I have cut off friends who emotionally drain me or use me as an energy feeding source.
- I put meditation music on at work in order to drown out the chatter of emotions coming off of everyone around me.
- I am self-aware and know when my threshold has been met – it is time to take a vacation.
- I keep a blanket in my trunk because I know if I have a panic attack it helps to wrap myself in it until I feel better.
- I know when I need to take a “mental day” from work.
- I always (and I mean always) trust my first instinct and I am never discouraged if it turns out wrong.
- I turn off all electronics for a few hours at a time every few days.
- I do not watch horror movies.
The list goes on and on, but the truth is that it will always be different and you should always treat it as a case-by-case basis.
People with the ability to feel clearly become incredible investigators as they grow older and develop their skills. People that are clairsentient can enter a room and assess each person’s emotion and mental state within minutes of entering. If you are one of these people, and are able to do this, try to keep yourself objective. I know that sounds like a tall order and near impossible, considering the ability is to feel everything, but it is possible on occasion to step back and “see the forest for the trees”. Always be aware of your surroundings! Your feelings may not be your own, but if you step back and take a look at the bigger picture It might start to make sense. Take a look around you, everyone is going through something intense and powerful. You are feeling all those lives at one time. Take a deep breath and just feel, write down the feelings you pick up around you. Don’t try and make sense of it now, just write it down. Don’t filter yourself or try to put what you feel into context. If all you write down is that “Yellow makes you feel sad.” You did a great job. Maybe you were sitting next to someone in that coffee shop that had just gotten broken up with and the flowers that were at the table in between them the night before were yellow tulips. Whatever the scenario, don’t put so much pressure on yourself. Write it down and let it be cleansed from you. By simply acknowledging that it was felt should be enough.
Take precautions in your day to day life in order to give yourself breaks. Be kind to yourself. Trust yourself. Life doesn’t get easier, but you will get stronger.
Go with light and love.
