The 5 Psychic Senses
Everyone has some sort of psychic sense hidden within them.
Some psychic senses can be stronger or weaker in others.
But most of them are suppressed as a child.
Know the 5 psychic senses so that you are aware of them and understand the experiences you have been going through.
Shut Down of Psychic Senses
In Western education and culture, we tend to teach children how to filter out and ignore their psychic senses.
Thus, for many people in the West, their inner power is suppressed and to recover them is slow.
If a young child is taught that eyes are unreliable and discouraged them from developing their sight, then they will learn to use hearing and touch.
Eventually all interaction cues come from other senses and the child’s brain will rewire itself to adapt and use without the sense of sight.
So it is the same with psychic senses.
We often tell our child that dreams aren’t real, what they are afraid of aren’t real, and what they are seeing aren’t real.
Our psychic senses are hardwired into us for survival purposes but most gets suppressed early on.
However, some of us kept the psychic senses despite upbringings. And this can be a curse or a blessing depending how we live with it.
The Eastern culture has a more open-minded approach to psychic experiences and so some of those are passed down in their children. You may hear stories about strange but often non-physical phenomena.
What are the Psychic Senses?
We have many inner abilities such as inner hearing, inner sight, inner touch, inner smell, and precognition. This is only a glimpse but I have chosen to talk about those 5 psychic senses.
Now since many people are influenced by Hollywood’s portrayal of psychic abilities, the understanding of our subtle powers get drowned out by over-hyped fantasy. This unnatural expectations caused us doubt the ability we all have within ourselves.
If our senses have been faded off since childhood, there is always a basic pattern left in the brain that can relearn this process.
But if, for example, we have never learned inner touch, then there is no possible way to awaken it because there’s no processing patterns. This usually happens when we are forced to shut down since birth but this is very rare.
So most people have some degree of psychic senses and all we need to do is awaken them.
What are the 5 psychic senses?
1. Inner Hearing
Also known as Clairaudience. Now inner hearing can be of 2 variety: hearing with the mind or hearing outside.
It is more rare to manifest the latter. Hearing with the mind often occurs in most people.
Now what is often mistaken as inner hearing is “tinnitus”. Tinnitus is only when the auditory nerve in the brain is acting up.
You can have sound hallucination and hear things that aren’t really there. One can tell because the music and sounds in hallucination are familiar to you while inner hearing you hear unfamiliar sounds.
We must also rule out schizophrenia as a form of inner hearing. Any medical concerns such as epilepsy, OCD, or brain tumors can make you think you hear voices but it is not a form of inner hearing.
However, if you are mentally stable, then take the sounds as a form of inner hearing – clairaudience.
A good rule of thumb is that if you are hearing things that tend to come true or that saved your life, then it is your inner hearing kicking in.
You can hear the voices of the trees, stones, water, plants, dogs, houses, and people’s thoughts. Well, everything talks.
Inner hearing with the Mind
This is the inner voice people often hear in their mind.
There is a difference between this subtle inner voice and the rambling thoughts.
Sometimes it is your Higher Self talking to you.
Other times it’s other beings talking to you and you are processing the communication in your mind.
When developed, you can distinguish the difference between the two. But I don’t think it really matters.
Let’s say you are walking down a neighborhood with your usual thought rambling, then suddenly your thought pattern changes.
The inner voice says something like, “Turn around. This place is dangerous.”
That is a form of inner hearing and you ought to listen to this voice should you wish the best for you.
Inner hearing outside
I have had at times, usually between 3 AM and 4 AM, hear voices as if they are right beside me.
It was an unfamiliar voice – a voice of a woman. She spoke a two syllable word which I cannot remember now.
One had called my name so loud that I woke up and realized that no one had called me.
These types of events are rare in most people, except for a few who have an incredible and finely tuned inner hearing.
When you have this kind of inner hearing, you hear someone speaking to you right next to your ear but no one is there.
What does it mean? Either nothing or something.
However, one will usually get spooked the first time they hear it even if they consciously know it is only their inner hearing.
2. Inner Sight
Also known as Clairvoyance. The inner sight can manifest many different ways.
The three most prominent features are: seeing as they are, seeing the astral version, and seeing beyond barriers.
Seeing as they are
Most have experienced this. It is seeing something that is not apparent to normal humans.
It is, for example, when you look at someone who appears healthy and beautiful but see ugliness and sickness. And you don’t understand why they think they look great.
Or you see someone is friendly with everyone and, yet, you saw greed in every pore of his skin.
This often happens when your conscious mind and your subconscious mind overlay each other and the brain processes both information.
When something doesn’t look right, it means something probably isn’t.
Seeing something that vanishes
Have you ever see a person standing in the corner of your eyes but when you turn around, no one is there?
Well, it is common for people to walk by a neighborhood and see a building in a distance. Then upon looking back, the building disappears.
A great example is the people hiking in Iceland. They pause at the top of the hill and sees an unusual colored house in the middle of nowhere. The group began to walk towards it. As the path took them out of the view of the house, and then back in, the house vanishes.
Though the group thought it was some sort of illusion or snow mirage, they found that many people have seen this house over the years.
These visions are either seeing remnants of a past figure or building. Or they can also be looking into the astral version of the place which only exists in that world.
Seeing beyond barriers
This is like the Superman’s x-ray vision, except you don’t actually see anything.
This is, however, more of a feeling than a sight. Yet, it is what we see when it occurs.
So if there was a missing child in a building, one can look at a particular building and point that the child is in here or not.
You can sense a presence in a room without having to be there.
Once I mentally traveled to a nearby park. Usually that park is peaceful when I visited it in person. But now it has a strange dark and uneasy feeling
I wondered why I was feeling this because it contradicted my last experience there.
So I went to the park the next day and found out that there were smokers.
3. Inner Touch
Almost everyone has this to some degree. In more developed degree, it’s called psychometry.
When you touch something, it either feels right or it doesn’t.
You can know when an object or something you touched has a negative vibe.
Sometimes, you feel the pain or thinking of horrible acts when you touch a knife. Or you may feel delighted and full of joy when you touch a painting.
Touching a person can also give you a very good feeling or bad feeling.
If you are feeling icky, dirty, horrible sensations or having flashes of images, then you have activated the inner touch.
Though most people do not feel anything more than the fabric of a shirt, it is the sensitives’s way to distinguish what is and what is not.
4. Inner Smell
Like the inner touch, you may smell something delightful or a foul smell.
One must rule out that there are no drain issues, no garbage, no farting dogs, and no pollution in the area.
Everything has a smell signature.
Even if a person is clean out of the shower, he may smell bad because he is energetically unhealthy.
So if an object smells horrendous even after you clean it, then you should not keep it with you for it is energetically bad in this regard.
If you can’t smell anything, then assume nothing is wrong with it. Your inner smell may not have activated at all.
One may already experience this as it is an intuitive flash of dangerous future events, dreams unfolding the future, or a sense that something will happen.
Now often our precognition warns us of dangers. But some of the times it tells us things that are trivial such as the arrival of a white car at 3 PM or someone will call you tonight.
If only one type of precognition occurs, we can give it the benefit of doubt (unless you are usually right and it comes true.)
But once there are more evidence which points of the same danger, then take it to heart that it is precognition.
Intuitive flashes of dangerous future events
When you say goodbye to a family member and to have a safe flight only to see images of impending doom (which you have no reason to), then you may be seeing a future event come to pass.
Or you let someone borrow something of yours but have a strange feeling that it won’t be returned.
These are intuitive flashes of future events that you know what will tend to happen.
Dreams unfolding the future
I had a vivid dream with a sense that it was going to happen. Though I never thought it could be real, it occurred 3 months after and I lost that person exactly as how it described in the dream.
Sometimes our dreams tell us of our future and relays to us in symbols and images.
The more vivid the dream, the greater it is that the dream is really important.
So keep a journal and record your dreams. Most of them are trivial but one important dream can save your life.
Sense that something will happen
You don’t know why but all you know is that there is an undefinable knowing that something will happen.
It can either give you the drive to succeed or commit in your direction not to do something.
That is all there to it.
Psychic Experiences are Natural
We all have the 5 psychic senses to some degree. Some are not activated at all.
We should not be too concerned if we have such experiences or not.
Just know that it is all natural and nothing supernatural.
