Clairvoyance (from French clair meaning “clear” and voyance meaning “vision”) is the alleged ability to gain information about an object, person, location, or physical event through extrasensory perception.
Everyone is born with intuition, and some of us have intuitive psychic abilities, which are typically categorized as clairvoyant abilities.
The four main “Clairs” are:
- Clairvoyance: clear seeing.
- Clairsentience: clear feeling.
- Clairaudience: clear hearing.
- Claircognizance: clear knowing.
It’s very common for people to have more than one “clair.” When we channel messages from Spirit, we do that using a variety of modalities. Mediums have the ability to receive visions, messages, and/or communication from those who have passed over, in addition to having clairvoyant abilities as well.
Each person’s experience is 100% unique so we can’t possibly know what the process is like for everyone, the important thing is to honor your connection to Spirit and communicate the message as it works for you.
I’m not big on “warnings” ~ in this realm it breeds fear. I will caution you though, the fastest way for a clairvoyant person to drain themselves is, being around a lot of people. Because even when you think you may have your “energy reading” switch turned off…you’re still getting data into your system. And it’s draining.
I am also not big on “shielding” because I think it turns on that fear vibration. I’ve found that if you can ground yourself and spend a few minutes setting your intention, and then paying attention to how you FEEL when you are out among people, you’ll be prepared. Listen to the vibes you get, honor your feelings, if you need to remove yourself…do it!
OK, if you’re a beginner and just wanted a couple of points of reference, you’re probably good to go!
