Many of our Blue Papaya youth and their parents are empathic, which means they can sense and feel the emotions and energies of individuals, animals, and objects. More often than not they are also clairsentient. Clairsentient individuals are able to perceive energy fields, including auras and vibrations that can be attributed to interdimensional communication.
More to the point, Clairsentience is also known as ‘Clear Feeling’ or ‘Clear Sensing’. This ability encompasses an Empath’s gift of sensing and feeling another person’s or animal’s emotions and energies. It also encompasses the ability of Psychometry, which is the ability to read the residual emotions and energies imprinted on inanimate objects.
This can be accompanied by other Clair Abilities, which fall under the category of Extra Sensory Perception (ESP), such as Claircognizance (clear knowing), Clairvoyance (clear seeing), Clairaudience (clear hearing), Clairscentist (clear smelling), and Clairgustant (clear tasting). But, as with every Clair ability, it can also stand alone. What this means is that, if one is Clairsentient, they will feel or sense energies, whether from a corporeal or non-corporeal source. And it might be accompanied with the ability to see or hear such things as spirits and energies, within the mind’s eye, or it might not be. Each Clair ability can work in cooperation with others, or stand alone.
Empathy and Clairsentience are within the same spectrum of gifts, which are those of feeling or sensing the emotions and energies of the world around them. But Clairsentience is a broadened form of Empathy which encompasses a wider field of sensitivities ~ expanding beyond just the emotions and/or energies of other people and/or animals.
Our late September Blue Papaya Gathering was a practical lesson on how to protect your energy field not only from others but from different environments. Our group met at the statue of Ekwabet along the Fox River in Saint Charles, IL. The area Ekwabet resides along is a particularly sweet one and was a very appropriate place for the group to ground before tackling the different frequencies of energy we would encounter throughout our evening walking through the downtown.
We also did an exercise that focused on the Native American energies imprinted on the area to see if they had any guidance or messages for us. This is a typical pattern for our group. We often speak with the devas of a park we are about to explore after we have grounded so that we establish a positive relationship with the energies present. We ask to be open to the lessons they would like to share with us, and often we are extremely surprised and delighted by their gifts of knowledge shared.
Standing in a circle, we next extended our arms outward to our sides. Everyone’s energy field reaches beyond the tips of their fingers, and it was easy to see how maneuvering through day to day activities it is very possible for other individuals energy to impact your own energy as they bleed into your field. Often individuals don’t like to go out in crowds because they feel overwhelmed, dirty, agitated, angry or simply not themselves. This is because their energy fields are open and they have taken on the multiple energies of the places and individuals they have encountered.
Our goal was to teach the youth how to pull their energy fields close to their bodies, to not let them fully extend so that they would not be affected by other less positive places and individuals. Deeply inhaling, we pulled our energy inward, almost like an angel pulling it’s wings close to it’s body is how some envisioned this practice. Now we were ready to traverse the town and experiment on how different city environments make us feel.
We learned how the movement of water under a bridge affected not only the energy field of some, but it was also felt in the second and third chakras of others. The youth felt the impact of heavy traffic on their energy field, and also how different businesses not only can have inviting energies, but also can be solemn or downright negative. Sometimes this is a reflection of the current occupants, or based on past events that have imprinted themselves. They also could feel the impact of electrical conductors on their energy fields, which was surprising to some, especially considering how reliant we are on technology in today’s world.
We came across some musicians playing Irish folk music at an outdoor courtyard, which was another lesson on how music can flow through your energy field and can effect your mood. My how the city seemed to be co-operating with us!
By the end of the evening, the youth had learned to identify how different situations affected their energy, and were more aware of when to draw in their energy fields, and to be more attuned to these shifts.
Take out your family and have your own experiments when out in public. Start out in a peaceful place, practice identifying your energy field and bringing it in closer before you start your journey. Let us know what different situations you’ve tried and how your experiments in sensing your personal energy have gone! We’d love to hear from you.
