Psychic & Intuitive Gifts Series, Part 1: 
Introduction to Psychic Gifts & Intuition

By Elizabeth Sullivan

Human Beings for millennia have wisdom, insight, knowings, gut instincts, synchronicities that have given us information beyond the concrete primary senses of what we can hear, feel, see, taste and smell. These knowings, psychic gifts and intuitions, are based on our connection to our higher mind/self being optimally connected and opened, the primary senses being clear, calm, focused and attuned, so that our psychic gifts can expand into our being. These psychic gifts and intuitions are the senses beyond the primary senses that inform our mind, our ability to manifest our life, and our energy. And the most misunderstood and false belief, is that only some people have these gifts, when in actuality ​every human being has these gifts and they are meant to be awakened and used for the benefit of all. Chances are you already are using these gifts within you, but perhaps have not acknowledged this. Or maybe you have a habit of discrediting them. This series is intended to acknowledge your innate brilliance as a human on the planet at this time and support you in recovering and opening your divine being in human form.

Our psychic gifts and intuition are rapidly coming online and have been for over the past decade when a window opened in 2011 bringing in transformation needed on the planet. Previous to this, and depending on how you were raised, these kinds of gifts may have been grossly discounted, even tempered with, or suppressed. Even worse, historically, people lost their lives due to such gifts making it more difficult to open in the next incarnation of our soul’s expression. Or their gifts were misused. Now is the time to tap into these wonderful psychic gifts and intuitive ways of living as we transform all the density and shift into higher frequencies arising on the planet and within the cosmos — much of our star wisdom and soul’s mastery and gifts is coming back online. This helps us stand up for what we can no longer tolerate, which really are patterns that are ready to transform. We have the innate ability to open and develop our Psychic Gifts and support our intuition more fully manifesting optimal timelines for all sentient beings and the planet herself.

The 8 Psychic gifts we will explore in this series are:

  • Clairaudient (hearing)
  • Clairtangency (clear touch)
  • Clairvoyance (clear seeing)
  • Clairgustance (clear tasting)
  • Clairsalience (clear smelling)
  • Claircognizance (clear knowing)
  • Clairsentience (clear physical feeling)
  • Clairempathy (clear emotion)

The primary three that most may be more familiar with are Clairaudient (hearing), Clairvoyant (seeing), or Claircognizance (knowings) — this does not make the other 5 any less of a gift, it is just culturally those who have been more spoken about. Over the course of the next 5 days we will unpack these gifts and how you can tap into them with greater access and ease. Each day you will get some information and ways to work with what you are learning. And if inspired, love to hear what you discover throughout as you are inclined to share it with me.

For Today’s Invitation for Self Awareness:

Take a moment to reflect and tune into yourself. Perhaps light a candle as you do this, put oil on, or sit by a river or under a tree. Take a moment to tune into your body, your energy, and your breath for a few moments. Ask to connect up optimally with your Higher Self in a clear, calm, light-filled way, and then ask yourself— How do I receive information beyond the primary senses? ​(Don’t overthink it, in fact that can get in the way of your intuition and gifts.) See, feel and know how you experience your intuition, and psychic gifts. ​Then jot down the 8 Psychic Gifts that support your Intuition in the order you feel most connected to them for yourself, even if you are not sure what each means at this moment in time—as we will be opening them up more. Number one being the one you rely on effortlessly, often you don’t even realize you are using it. Number 8 being the one you might be most unfamiliar or underdeveloped, or habitually discounted within you. During today pay attention to how you get your knowings, information, insights. And maybe even journal/sketch/freeform on the page before you go to bed tonight about one time you relied on it to direct you, get you out of a sticky situation, or inform your next step in life.

Note: This is a 6 series newsletter with exploration questions, originally intended to be 8 posts, but as I wrote it — it unfolded differently. Enjoy!

Remember you are light,
