psychic sense of feeling or clairsentience (n)
the capacity to perceive emotions, energetic vibrations, and sensory content beyond the physical senses. When perceiving data or communications using our psychic sense of feeling, many people describe it as a “gut instinct” or “intuitive knowing.” You may perceive the data physically (such as feeling a hand on your shoulder), mentally (such as relating to emotions), or you may simply have a metaphysical awareness something relating to feeling/sensations (such as the feeling of being late for an appointment). I like to further categorize the psychic sense of feeling into the psychic senses of touch/feeling (clairtangency) and emotion (clairempathy).
ex.: The first time I experienced clairsentience, I felt a strong sense of love and compassion for a woman whose husband had passed; he was able to make me experience the emotions he felt for his wife.
* Many people still use these terms derived from old French combining the prefix clair (meaning clear) + corresponding verb tenses (i.e. to see, to hear, to taste, to smell, to touch, to emote, to sense, and to know). However, memorizing those terms is not necessary for understanding the concepts. In my workshops and discussions, I will opt for terms everyone can easily comprehend such as “the psychic sense of …”
