Can Childhood Nicknames Determine your Primary Intuitive Sense?

Childhood nicknames can be mean, unflattering, and demeaning. Can they also be an indicator of your primary intuitive sense? Are those names a gift in disguise?

Childhood nicknames can in some cases seem devastating and defining, but may carry some grain of truth in them that describes a character trait or attribute still with you today.

I think many of you would prefer to have your childhood nicknames erased from memory, as they can be embarrassing and downright mean, but how do they connect with your primary intuitive sense?

Old “Eagle Ears”

Over Easter my family went home to visit with my parents. At one point the conversation started to turn to something that happened when I was younger. I forget what we were talking about, but the term “eagle ears” came up in the conversation. It has been a long time since I heard my Mom use that phrase, but it struck a chord with me.

When I was young my parents called me “eagle ears” because I had the “unique” ability to hear around and through the walls and pick up on their conversations. After this came up, I looked up what “eagle ears” meant and was dismayed to find out Urban Dictionary refers to it as someone who thinks they can hear everything but cannot.

What is interesting about that nickname is that it turns out the primary way I hear my intuition is through clairaudience, which means clear hearing.

I started to think about the connection between how our family viewed us when we were younger versus where our true intuitive talents lie.

Do You have Eyes in the Back of Your Head?

How about you? Were you told multiple times that you had “eyes in the back of your head”? Is there more to that phrase than what you knew as a child? It may indicate that clairvoyance is your primary intuitive method of connection.

The Know It All

Were you ever called the “know it all” because you just knew things but could not explain how you knew? This can indicate that claircognizance is a primary intuitive skill for you.


What about Clairsentience? Were you ever called the over-sensitive child, the cry baby, or the touchy-feely one?

I have been doing some thinking about this and feel that your primary intuitive traits are already there when you are young child.

We may not see them in that context when we are young, however. Unless you came from an open spiritual family, these traits can be dismissed as annoying or written off as negative traits.

So, take some time and think about how you were referred to back when you were a child. Does that match what you feel your primary intuitive sense is at this point in your life?

Much of our intuition gets left along the roadside as we get older. I am inviting you to take a look down memory lane to see and understand things that people said when you were way too young to put it all together.

How about you? Did you have any nicknames or truisms that friends or family used when you were a child? I would love for you to share your thoughts in the comments below.

My family always calls me the know it all, since I’m highly connected with the divine and it’s annoying to them that I say things as truth that they sometimes think are just my over-confident opinion. I’ve also always been the sensitive one, in accordance with my clairsentient abilities

Hi, growing up I have continuously been named all three, i am the youngest of 3, very observant with great hearing, atleast while paying attention, I am usually good on predicting actions of others, but most of all I am very sensitive. My nickname was the “cry baby know it all”. For a couple years I have had dreams, some involving number patterns and others with pictures or items, at first it was confusing and made no sense, I started reading your stuff and it has helped me take control of understanding the numbers . i dont know what category I would be. When the dreams began in 2008 is when I started seeing 333 repeatedly on a daily basis.

Growing up I was always labeled over-sensitive and a cry-baby. I recall early memories of being in the back seat of my mother’s car crying about the homeless people I would see along the street. At school, I often complained of feeling sick but could never explain to teachers or nurses what my symptoms were other than “my stomach hurts.” Growing up clairsentient was very difficult at times!
