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.
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.
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.
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.
