The Ordinary Physical Senses Vary In Sensitivity From Person To Person – So Do The Non-Ordinary Intuitive Senses.
As you know, your experience of the world is shaped by a mix of sensory data from your ordinary senses – taste, hearing, sight, smell, touch. The quantity and quality of information you perceive depends on many factors – like being near/far sighted, or being overwhelmed by specific tones or volumes. If you have an unusually sensitive sense of smell, you might be an adept perfumer, or a vintner with a naturally sensitive pallet trained to recognize subtle variations in taste and scent. All of this info – sights, sounds, smells, textures, tastes – is in your environment. However, you interact with and synthesize that info differently than others based on which of your senses are dominate and most reliable in your body.
So, why am I stating the obvious? Because, your intuitive senses operate in much the same way – as a complex and collaborative system of information gathering.
I taught at a school for Medical Intuitives in the San Francisco Bay Area for many years, and observed that many times students would believe that they weren’t intuitive if they weren’t getting information in a specific way – especially if they weren’t getting images. Because we have such a visual culture, clairvoyance seems to be the intuitive sense that everyone wants to develop most or thinks is the “best” one. However, each sense has its own purpose and accesses a different quality of information. They are all important and we each have a combination of intuitive senses that operate together for a more cohesive perspective.
