This is a form of extra-sensory perception wherein a person acquires psychic knowledge primarily by feeling. The word is from the French clair, “clear,” + sentience, “feeling,” and is ultimately derived from the Latin clarus, “clear,” + sentiens, derived from sentire, “to feel”. The term also plays a role in some religions. For example: clairsentience is one of the six human special functions mentioned or recorded in Buddhism. It is an ability that can be obtained at advanced meditation level. Generally the term refers to a person who can feel the vibration of other people.
There are many different degrees of clairsentience ranging from the perception of diseases of other people to the thoughts or emotions of other people. The ability differs from third eye in that this kind of ability cannot have a vivid picture in the mind. Instead, a very vivid feeling can form. The popular medium Gordon Smith uses his clairsentience to tune into those in the spirit plane to link into their emotions or to describe the sensation linked to an illness which may be pressure around the chest for someone who died after a heart attack.
