The Nose Knows

Scent is a powerful thing! Smells hold so much nostalgia, and can take us back to memorable times in our lives. For pregnant women, otherwise harmless smells can trigger an avalanche of nausea. For others, certain scents can instantly force a painful memory to the surface. In the psychic world, scents are powerful as well.


The spirit world does a great job at grabbing our attention through our sense of smell. It is called “clairolifacation.” This unique clair is the ability to smell psychically.



A lot of people have some psychic smelling gifts that show up unexpectedly. People report smelling their grandfather’s pipe tobacco, their mother’s perfume or their grandmother’s fresh baked bread out of the blue. What a sweet message that our loved one are near! Additionally, some people report smelling roses when they work with angels.



For me, I smell Big Red gum when my grandma is near. She chewed that gum my whole life. I even slipped a few packs into her casket. When I was 15, one of my beloved cousins was killed in a car accident. He was 17, and like a brother to me. I still get a strong whiff of his cologne from time to time. It is his way of letting me know that he is near me.




Pay attention to the smells around you. Scents from heaven frequently show up in places that they should not be. Cigarette smoke in a nonsmokers home, cologne in the car, a floral scent wafting through your bedroom, etc. If you smell something that reminds you of a passed love one, just say “Hello” and “I love you.” They will be overjoyed that they got your attention.
