There are really sides to clairgustance, or clear tasting, psychics use. There’s the tasting part – when actually taste something that isn’t there. Then, there’s clairalience, or psychically smelling something. These are both physical reactions versus a spiritual event like the other psychic abilities. As with the material world, both taste and smell work together.
Let’s find out how to use clairgustance on a ghost hunt.
This ability is straightforward. You can taste, smell or both something that isn’t there. In most cases, you don’t think you’re having a psychic event. It’s just a craving. But, this could be a spirit confirming it’s identity.
When Jake and I investigated the Congress Plaza Hotel, I vividly recall the smell of cigars and perfumes. The funny thing about it – we were on the 5th floor of the south tower, which was closed for renovations. There were no guests and our EMF detectors were going crazy!
Using Clairgustance on a Ghost Hunt
I have to say, my psychic sense of smell works better than taste. I can usually smell cologne, perfume, fires and gunshots before I taste anything like apple pie. This skill works well to confirm a spirit is near or the spirit’s identity. You want to mark it, or verbally state, when you get a ‘whiff’ of something.
When I do experience clairgustance, it usually triggers a personal memory. For example, I connected with the spirit of a good friend and I could taste cake batter ice cream. We always went for a few scoops when we’d see each other. It was a way of comforting me. On a ghost hunt, the ghost may trigger the taste of something he or she loved in life as a way to connect. I wish I could give your more information about clairgustance, but I don’t experience it often enough to give you a lot of details.
Remember, mark your psychic impressions of a taste or scent into your audio recordings. If conducting EVP, you may capture the voice of the spirit, too. Audio is the best way to get evidence.
This ends the parapsychology and psychic abilities posts. Thanks for reading my posts and I hope to add more soon!
