This affirmation from Louise Hay has tickled my mind for a couple of weeks:
I exercise my five senses by looking, listening, tasting, smelling, and touching. I always notice new and interesting features of my environment.
While I appreciate the affirmation as-is, I immediately began to apply it to the energy work I do.How would it be, as I'm investigating and clearing properties, to have all six senses engaged?
First of all, let's take a look at our five physical senses:
1. Sight2. Sound3. Taste4. Scent5. Touch
Our sixth sense is exercised to do psychic work, such as energy investigation and clearing:
The thing is, our widely-accepted five senses take on different names when they're in the metaphysical realm.
The clair-senses are:
1. Clairvoyance (clear seeing)2. Clairaudience (clear hearing)3. Clairgustance (clear tasting)4. Clairalience (clear smelling)5. Clairsentience (clear feeling or touching)
And on top of those we have a sixth clair-sense:
6. Claircognizance (clear knowing).
Once I'm connected to the location I intend to investigate and/or clear, I engage sight - clairvoyance - to view the property.Then, I exercise touch - clairsentience - so I can discern what the floor in the cellar, if there is one, is made of, for instance. (It's pretty cool to feel soft dirt under my feet, when, from a physical standpoint, they're set on a hardwood floor.)That's two clair-senses so far. What about the other three?Honestly, I haven't made an attempt to hear what's going on around me from a physical level when I'm working on someone's property, and I haven't attempted to smell or taste on that level, either.My choice to not exercise those three senses in that setting, to date, has more to do with the possibility of confusion than with concern about ability or permissiveness.As it is, I tend to view properties both as they were and are, all at once.For example, if a house was built in 1920 and had undergone multiple renovations which changed the construction - interior and/or exterior - of the house, I see all of them as though looking through layers of tracing paper.That's a lot of information.If all six senses were successfully exercised during an investigation, would I then hear, smell, and taste both past and present simultaneously?And if that was the case, would I be able to discern what information belongs to what era?My brain is entertained by the possibility. I feel there'll be opportunity to experience some if not all of the clair-senses in an investigation sometime soon.Aside from more information and the longer report, the additional information could add another level of validity to that unusual work. I like that latter notion, in particular.
