Renewing Your Mind: Clairsentience

One time when my husband Russ was on a business trip to Mexico, he nearly drowned. I was thousands of miles away at the time — taking our daughter to the dentist here in the United States — when all of a sudden I was inexplicably overcome with a feeling that Russ was in serious danger. I felt a wet sensation on my skin when no water was nearby. Then I sensed a strong urge to pray for Russ’ safety. So I did pray for him, silently, standing in the middle of the dentist’s office.

That evening when I spoke with Russ by phone, I told him what had happened and asked him if he’d been in danger during the day. It turned out that he had a team outing on jet skis out in the ocean that afternoon (which I hadn’t known about) and he had accidentally fallen off his jet ski. Then he had been pulled down under the water by a panicking coworker who had also fallen off and grabbed onto him for help.

When we adjusted for the time zone differences, it turned out that at precisely the time that happened to Russ, I had that clairsentient experience. Clairsentience (which means “clear feeling”) is a form of extrasensory perception (ESP) that involves receiving spiritual knowledge in your mind through either your emotions and/or your sense of touch.

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

and I’ll post it on the site.
