Sense Stealing is the ability to take away the senses of other beings and potentially use them for oneself. It can be used to steal the five senses; sight, hearing, smell, touch and taste. As an extention, it can be used to steal voices and close body parts, such as the mouth.

"Yeah, he claimed that some storm drain monsters stole his eyesight and of course the authorities believed he just caught a parasite."
Phoebe to Piper.[src]

Grimlocks use this ability to steal the eyesight of people, preferably young children, so they can see the auras that surround good people. They then use their ability of Aura Choking to strangle people. If Grimlocks are vanquished, then stolen eyesight will be returned to whomever it was stolen from.[1]

Monkey Totem

"This totem was created to trap senses, but with my magic I can borrow what's inside here."
The Crone to the Kazi King.[src]

The Monkey Totem was created to steal the senses of others. The Crone used it to take Phoebe's hearing, Piper's sight and Paige's voice. She then used their senses to spy on the sisters and gain access to Wyatt. When she was vanquished, the sisters' senses were returned.[2]

Mr. Monkeyshines

Miss Donovan: " He's using it to push his own agenda which is to stifle freedom of speech. "
Mr. Monkeyshines: "Now that's what I call stifling."
Paige: "That is uncalled for. You give her her mouth back now. "
Paige to Mr. Monkeyshines.[src]

Gnomes possess the ability to steal the senses of others. When Mr. Monkeyshines used this power on Miss Donovan, her mouth was sealed and she was unable to open it. After a reprimand from Paige, he waved his hand and unsealed her mouth.[3]
