The paranormal term clairvoyance originated in the French language. And can be broken down as, in French, ‘clair’ meaning clear, ‘voyance’ meaning vision and ‘voyant ‘ being a visionary. Therefore being a clairvoyant is one who has clear vision. This is, however, a literal translation and not really accurate or very helpful.
To further complicate the definition, clairvoyant has been used in reference to a variety of things over the years. The term clairvoyant applies to an individual who has exhibited abilities in a range of psychic or paranormal talents and has emerged gradually over the years. An all-encompassing meaning which truly fits is that someone using clairvoyance powers, is an individual who has the ability to know places, people, events and objects by other means other than the five physical senses and refers to a form of extra-sensory perception (ESP).
Clairvoyance usually involves a clairvoyant person knowing about something that is happening right then, but far away or otherwise out of range of their physical senses. However, there have also been documented cases of a clairvoyant knowing of something that happened in either the past or the future. Because of this, clairvoyance is considered by some to be a form of precognition, or prophecy.
The means a clairvoyant individual learns this ability varies and can generally be broken down to one of six categories. The first form or category is ‘remote viewing’ and perhaps is the most associated with clairvoyance. A clairvoyant views a location, event, person or object hidden from them through remote viewing. And occasionally takes the form of visual hallucination and at other times the clairvoyant views things with their ‘minds eye.’
A second form of clairvoyance is clairaudience. In clairaudience, a clairvoyant gains their information of the remote event by sound. They may hear voices or noises that other people (and recording equipment) can not. In some cases, the clairvoyant may her the voices of the dead, in which case that phenomenon may cross the line into mediumship.
The third type is called clairsentience and in this form the individual receives knowledge by touching or feeling. This may be the act of touching an object which is not present and in other cases it may be a feeling or vibration the clairvoyant may feel from another person or event or place.
The fourth type is clairalience. In clairalience, the person gains knowledge of remote locations and events through their sense of smell. For example, they may smell the grass and wildflowers of a spring meadow, followed by gunpowder and the tang of blood. Of course, no one else around can smell these things, and there is no apparent source for the various scents.
The fifth form of clairvoyance is called clairgustance. With this form an individual who has no food within their mouth can taste various flavors, even though there is no apparent sauce. The clairvoyant can also identify the flavors from a distance.
The sixth and final form of clairvoyance is claircognizance. This is perhaps the most hard to define or explain. In claircognizance, a person knows something about a remote person, object, location, or event, but can’t explain how they gained that knowledge?they just know it. To some extent, claircognizance is a catch-all category of clairvoyance.
There have been many documented occurrences of people who are clairvoyant throughout history from different cultures around the globe. Instances of clairvoyance have also been incorporated into some of the world’s most widespread religions.
For example, in Buddhism, clairvoyance is considered to give humans the capability to reach advanced levels of meditation. And the ability to feel vibrations sent out by other people.
Clairvoyance in Catholicism has been consider a miraculous ability. A disciple of Saint Francis, Saint Claire, had a vision over five hundred years ago. In this vision she witnessed the death of Saint Francis while she was miles away at the time. She was made the Saint of television. The literal meaning of television is seeing over a distance.
There are many skeptics, of course, about the existence of clairvoyance. But it is part of human nature for individuals to deny the existence of something because they do not understand it. Not too far back in our resent history the scientist denied there was such a thing as electricity and magnetism.
Whatever the skeptics say, they haven?t been able to disprove clairvoyance. The increase in evidence shows there exist many genuine clairvoyants in the world. Scientist, parapsychologist, and the public have become more open minded and accept the existence clairvoyance.
Despite the fact that we do not quite understand how it works, this is no reason to ignore its existence. It has been suggested that in the distant past, all humans used to be clairvoyant but for some reason lost their powers. It is thought that everybody could again become clairvoyant if they make the effort and choose to develop these powers.
