Renewing Your Mind: Clairalience

Part of my recent series about extrasensory perception (ESP) for includes the phenomenon of clairalience, which involves smelling a fragrance that comes from a spiritual source rather than a physical one. Like all forms of ESP, clairalient messages are perceived in the mind. You can increase your ability to perceive to such messages if God wants to send any to you.

One of the most common types of clairalient messages is a scent that reminds you of someone you’ve loved who has passed away. Scents are powerful memory triggers. Another type of clairalient message involves smelling the sweet fragrance of roses during prayer when no actual roses are around. I’ve had that happen to me a few times when I was praying, and I believe it was a gift from the Holy Spirit to encourage me.

How about you? If you’ve had a clairalient experience and you’d like to share to inspire others through your story, email it to me at:

and I’ll post it on the site.
