Clairsentience

Clairsentience

A spiritual medium or channeler who works through clairsentience senses a spirit presence. This may occur in a variety of ways: a general sensing of a presence, sensing an emotion, changes in temperature, breezes, a feeling of cobwebs on the face, a smell, scent or fragrance. The vagueness of some of these impressions can make the process more difficult. However, sensing that a person's grandmother is present along with a awareness of the favourite scent which she used to use can be very evidential.
