Many who have the psychic gifts of Clairvoyance and Clairaudience, will often be able to sense with Clairalience as well.

These psychics can often smell fires in buildings that happen over a hundred years ago, or lavender when connecting to someone’s grandmother as further validation that the grandmother is really there.

How to Tell if You’re Clairalient

Clairalience is a psychic gift that you may be born with or it may be developed over time.

You can tell if you are clairalient by smelling smells that have no earthly way of being there.

For example, you may smell strong perfumes, pipes, or a certain flower that a passed on relative loved.

When my fiancé passed, many of my family smelled cinnamon almonds that we all connected to at a store he loved to visit while sick.

How to Develop Clairalience

As with all psychic gifts, clairalience can be developed by your intention to develop it.

You can also try to connect to departed loved ones through the physical scents they loved and practice picking them up.

Ask your grandmother, grandfather, mother, father, etc. – To let you know of their presence through a certain scent you remember them by.

Meditation For Developing Clairalience

Close your eyes and see a dial that says “Clairalience” with the numbers 1 – 10 on it.

Now, imagine that dial being turned up to 10.

Now, picture, golden liquid light being pulled in through and around your sinuses while saying, “Clean and clear all my blocks to clairalience.”

Breathe deeply and allow the energy to be cleared.

Archangel Who Helps with Clairalience

Archangel Sandalphon is the Archangel who helps with clairalience, as well as all other psychic gifts.

If you are trying to open any psychic gift, you can ask Archangel Sandalphon for assistance and guidance in this area.

Ask him to help you develop clairalience and assist you with the fear associated with awakening your psychic powers.

The spiritual realms and Teacher’s of Light can always do much more to help us when we ask!

How to Understand Clairalient Messages

Often, clairalient messages will mean something specific to you. When you smell clairalient smells, ask yourself who this scent could be coming from?

And why?

Usually, just asking the questions will make the answers become clear. You may also ask if the scent is from someone you know or the spirit of someone trying to connect with those around you.

Final Thoughts on What is Clairalience?

Clairalience is another beautiful psychic gift that can bring great comfort from departed relatives to those who are still living.

Above all, they want us to know that they are with us, love us, and are there to assist us anytime we ask!

If you are clairalient, Spiritually Grounding and turning on your Merkaba often, will greatly lessen the psychic “noise” from others you may be experiencing.
