There are a variety of ways in
which a Spirit Guides or a departed spirit can
communicate with a medium or psychic. Often these
communications are through what is called the "Clair
Clair senses is a collective word, meaning that the
Guides' communication can utilise any of the following
types of psychic sensitivity which co-mingles the
physical body's normal five senses.
The five sense and the Clair sense involved are:
Clairaudience are sounds or words that a person can
actually hear when, in fact, no one is speaking and
nothing physical is causing the sounds. The sounds are
thought to be impressions that register themselves on
the spirillae of the ear's pineal gland. It is
believed that clairaudience sounds go through the same
process that normal hearing does, passing through the
Third Eye chakra of the head.
Clairsavorance is translated as clear tasting. The
person experiences tastes in the mouth without putting
anything physical actually in the mouth.
Clairscient also known as
means to smell a
fragrance or odour of a substance which is not
physical in nature. For example, you might smell
cigarette smoke when you are in a place where it is
certain no one is smoking or has smoked or the perfume
which a passed person would have worn when on the
Clairempathy is the
ability to sense the emotional and physical condition
of others from a distance. For instance, if you were
to be in an online Chatroom you would be able to sense
the emotion and physical condition of someone you were
'speaking' to in the room, even though you would only
be typing your words to communicate with them.
Clairtangency is the
psychic faculty that corresponds with the physical
sense of touch.
Clairsentience allows a psychic to perceive
information as a feeling within the whole body without
any other stimuli related to this feeling or
information, which comes from within the body, down
the kundalini to the stomach area or solar plexus. The
stomach area is one of the strongest communication
centers that Guides frequently use to communicate.
Clairvoyance means to see into an ethereal dimension
without using physical eyes. Some describe it as
reaching into another vibration frequency and visually
perceive "within the head" something like moving
pictures. The third eye area of the forehead is one of
the other strongest communication centers that Guides
frequently use to communicate.

In his historic writings of "Psychic Science," Sir
Oliver Lodge spoke about what he called "clairvoyance
or lucidity" and raised the older concepts that were
coined as "reading with the pit of the stomach."
According to Lodge, using the stomach or belly area as
the channel for psychic communications was an
That is an interesting observation when you look more
globally at the ancient's beliefs about the belly. The
Chinese called this belly chakra the "chi point,"
while the Japanese termed it the "hara" or "ki point."
As the body's balancing chakra, this area is located
one and a half inches below the navel and one and a
half inches inward toward the spine. It is the
"energy" that the body generates, some call it a
In writing this article, I spoke with world renown
psychic and author Jane Doherty because as a psychic
she experiences a physical phenomena that relates to
Sir Oliver Lodge's concept of "reading with the pit of
Whenever there are ghosts around Jane Doherty, she has
an amazing physical reaction to them. The reaction
Jane has is that her stomach area actually enlarges by
as much as six inches around within seconds. And, Jane
tells us that it is extremely painful to her when this
happens. If you watch Jane while her stomach expansion
is happening, you are going to hear her moaning and
see her wincing ? and trust me, it is not dramatics ?
Jane is in definite pain.
With regards to her expanding tummy, Jane says, "It
feels like a contraction when a woman is in labour,
but it doesn't ever release me until the spirit
leaves. Instead, the stomach expands as if I was nine
months pregnant." Jane actually describes it as very
intense muscle cramps, where her stomach is physically
gripped by the ghost, and if you watch, the belly will
actually lift up. Jane continues, "Often I can tell by
the grip whether it is a female, male or child spirit.
It first happened to me in 1990, when I investigated
my first haunted house with a researcher."
Psychic Jane Doherty has this psychic belly experience
as she applies her clairsentience skills, but
interestingly enough the phenomena only happens when a
ghost is present and not when a Guide is present. You
can learn more about Jane Doherty's psychic abilities
in her book "Awakening the Mystic Gift: The Surprising
Truth About What It Means to Be Psychic," which
chronicles Jane's own psychic awakening and what it
truly means to be psychic. You can also view her
expanding stomach area on TLC's Dead Tenants show in
which Jane co-stars. Jane's book and book club are
Doreen Virtue, author of "Clairaudience: Hearing Your
Angels' Messages," says that clairsentients get divine
guidance through bodily sensations, such as a
tightening of the jaw, fists, stomach or sex organs,
and that they intuitively know the specific meaning of
these tightening reactions. She further adds that
clairsentients receive angelic guidance through an
Etheric sense of smell, taste, and touch.
Renowned medium John Holland says pointedly that the
hot spot for clairsentients is the stomach.
Clearly the "belly energies" and "psychic abilities"
are intrinsically related as a compliment that helps
allow mediums to communicate with Guides, ghosts and
other-worldly beings. The stomach area is indeed one
of the strongest communication centers frequently use
to communicate with that which has no physical form.
