Psychics with this ability experience a variety of taste sensations, without actually placing anything on their tongue or into their mouth. Clairgustance therefore enables us to receive messages from the spiritual realm by ‘tasting’ the essence of various substances in the form of ‘non-physical flavors’. The effect is ultimately very similar to our normal sense of taste, but the items we are tasting are not physically present.
What could the purpose of such an odd psychic sense possibly be? Well, believe it or not, it does come in handy! Psychics who work in law-enforcement or forensics, for example, benefit greatly from their ability to become aware of the taste of chemicals, drugs or blood. It often provides clues to how a victim died, or how they were kidnapped or murdered.
Scarcely one person in a thousand is capable of tasting the happiness of others.
Some medical intuitives can taste certain foods a person may need for their health, such as the taste of orange juice for someone who lacks vitamin C. The taste of certain medicinal substances could also indicate a possible cause of illness, or what kind of treatment to seek.
But this gift of taste is not only applicable to the deceased, or non-physical entities. Psychics also experience tastes that are linked to the living. For example, when I am about to get a phone call from one of my closest friends, I always get a strong taste of Cabernet Sauvignon, his favorite red wine cultivar. He is an avid wine collector and connoisseur, and whenever we visit him, he always opens a bottle. Over the years I have come to associate this taste with his energy signature. Surprise visits from him are therefore impossible, try as he might!
You may taste the other flavors, but your thirst shall not depart, even for an instant. But when you taste the sweet flavor of the Lord’s sublime essence – upon tasting it, you shall be wonder-struck and amazed.
Another odd habit I have is to get a craving for cupcakes with pink frosting – always when I am forgetting someone’s birthday (don’t ask, it is a peculiar story dating back to grade school). Needless to say, this happens a lot, because I am absolutely useless at remembering names and birthdays. At least I am good with faces and energy vibrations!
Clairgustance often also serves to enhance at least one of the other, more prominent psychic senses, such as clairvoyance (seeing), clairsentience (feeling), clairaudience (hearing) or claircognizance (knowing).
Fortunately, I don’t experience these tastes very often, and I usually have to deal with normal food items, or pleasant flavors, when it does come around. Friends and co-workers, however, have mentioned some really weird and funny taste sensations they have had over the years, including rubber, charcoal, cigarettes and bile! Some clairgustants also experience related oral sensations, such as a dry mouth, burping, hiccups, salivating, or sudden food cravings.
