The Meaning of Clairvoyance by a Clairvoyant!

British Dictionary Definitions of Clairvoyance

A British dictionary clairvoyance definition:

  1. 1. “Clairvoyance (noun) [ U ] /ˌkleəˈvɔɪ.əns/:

The power to see the future or to see things that other people cannot see”.

However, there are a likely multitude of dictionary definitions about clairvoyance. Basically, it simply means “clear sight”. The term ‘clairvoyance’ is coined from the French words ‘clair’ meaning ‘clear’ and ‘voyance’ meaning ‘vision’ or ‘seeing’. It entered the English language in the 19th century but the concept was well known in the 16th century, evolving from the Old French term ‘clerveans’ from the 13th century.

The term ‘clairvoyant’ was used in French to describe someone discerning or clear-sighted. This spiritual ability has been around for quite a while. There is documented evidence of clairvoyants being active at the Oracle of Delphi (aka ‘The Pythia’) in 8th century BCE. In ancient Greece, The Pythia served as the high priestess at the Temple of Apollo at Delphi. The Pythia acted as a conduit for Apollo’s prophecies, offering guidance that was considered divinely inspired, for well over 1,000 years.

Today, some psychic readers use the spiritual power of seeing objects or actions to also see spirits, guides, angels, and other spiritual beings past, present and future. For some readers, clairvoyance is the ability to see in the mind’s eye. It can be experienced as being similar to watching television – the images often pass by very quickly in their mind.

What is a Clairvoyant?

The occurrence of extrasensory perception – also known as esp, may occur through what is known as ‘the clairs’ –

  1. Clairvoyance

This is the ability to spiritually view people, situations, and objects. If you can do this, you are clairvoyant.

Clairvoyant abilities are sometimes associated with remote viewing. In 1978 The Stargate Project was established by the US Army and SRI International to investigate psychic phenomena in military and domestic intelligence applications. This project was particularly focused on remote viewing and was terminated in 1995.

Skeptics will often say that psychic ability is fake or fraudulent and use the example of this program being terminated. However, this spiritual ability is not something that can be completely controlled. In many respects it is a gift that should be used appropriately and not manipulated. In fact, attempts to manipulate these abilities can result in karmic consequences so always look to reputable readers with good intentions.

In short, clairvoyants use clairvoyance to “see” in their mind’s eye what is happening in both Spirit and also in physical reality. Some people think that clairvoyance comes from the astral plane of existence. This is a dimension beyond the physical world (physical manifestation) and beyond time or space. Here, information including future events can be consciously explored by clairvoyance.

  1. Clairaudience

This is the ability to hear in Spirit, without using your actual physical ears. Sometimes you may hear loud words when you’re asleep especially at night. If you can do this you are clairaudient.

  1. Claircognizance

This is the spiritual ability to perceive, sense or know things.  Sometimes, you may not know how you know, but you just do. If you can do this, you are claircognizant.

  1. Clairsentience

This is the spiritual ability to feel through body sensations. If you can do this, you are clairsentient. You may feel when someone is ill or pregnant for example. Pregnancy to me in Spirit, feels like a hot golden period pain. It feels simultaneously pleasant and painful.

Readers with Supernatural Abilities

Many readers use a variety of other spiritual skills with their clairvoyance including:

  • Telepathy – the ability to share information from one mind to another without obvious physical means.
  • Empath Abilities – readers may inadvertently suck up the feelings of others like sponges. Although this normally makes for good accurate readings, some caution needs to be exercised as being empathic can be unhealthy in the long term or when involving intense situations. Readers must take care of their own psychological boundaries and realise when they are taking on the energies of others.
  • Telekinesis – the uncommon spiritual ability to move objects by using one’s mind.
  • Levitation – is the process of rising out of one’s body and floating in the air without any physical support. It’s often associated with supernatural abilities or magic. Sometimes we dream about this, especially when young or old.
  • Mediumship – the spiritual ability to communicate with those in other dimensions including but not limited to those who have already passed over to the other side.

Psychics with Clairvoyant Abilities

You may notice some of our readers talk very quickly while they are reading. Often there is so much information to impart, intuitive readers can’t afford to be slow, or they could miss something as it is downloaded into their conscious mind.

Consequently, some readers prefer that you hold your questions until the end of the reading, so that you receive the messages that Spirit has to offer first. Downloads can happen very quickly and there’s sometimes a lot to sort and get through.

Our readers will often use a combination of spiritual abilities and intuition when reading. They may use tarot cards and have clairvoyant visions over the top of the card. It can sometimes be described as looking at the card through a piece of cellophane which is imprinted with various pictures or visions.

Although a particular interpretation for a given card may be given on one occasion, when that card comes up again in another reading, the interpretation may be completely different, depending on what the reader is picking up at the time. Many of the psychic arts involve clairvoyance being interwoven with multiple spiritual skills. Having a toolbox of spiritual abilities often yields the best psychic readings.

third eye opening examples

Clairvoyance is available to anyone who has opened their third eye. This chakra is also known as Ajna which means ‘perceive’, ‘command’ or ‘beyond wisdom’ in Sanskrit. It is in the middle of the forehead, down towards the bridge of the nose and can be opened by a range of meditative practices. Sometimes, the 3rd eye will open of its own accord, at other times a major life event such as a death or birth may involve so much kundalini energy rising up the spine that the 3rd eye opens.

The Solar Plexus chakra or Manipura in Sanskrit means ‘City of Jewels’ or ‘Lustrous Gem’. It marks the beginnings of various spiritual abilities such as ‘gut feelings’ or ‘gut intuition’. A good light diet without chemicals or too much meat or alcohol can help here. Working on any father issues is also a help, especially if you had an absent father or partner when you grew up.

Using meditative processes are often long and involved, however some practices e.g. Karuna Reiki, can quicken the development in clairvoyance and other paranormal phenomena. Meditation practice by repetition helps you to sharpen or tune into a myriad of spiritual realities.

Many of our professional psychics were born with their third eye already open, so they experienced many psychic events during childhood. If you had an abusive childhood or near-death experiences then your clair skills might also be more developed than usual.
