Clear Knowing can be a flash of thought you know to be true. A realization of information that cannot be known. It is an absolute certainty YOU know without having a memory, without having been a witness to, or having factual knowledge of the experience or event. Having an experience of clear knowing, claircognizance, often is a realization of information. Information suddenly springs into YOUR head.
Claircognizance can be abrupt or a strong nagging thought. YOU just know. Most people ignore or dismiss these experiences as something they must have learned, heard about or witnessed. When Claircognizance happens you only need to accept it is real, trust when you know it is happening to you and focus on the message or information be given. Pause for a moment, let the knowing be in your head, heart, your soul. Recognizing and accepting claircognizance takes practice and development.
When you have a claircogniznace moment/experience record it in your journal. Write the circumstances in your journal as well. Circumstances are the day, time, place, what activity YOU were doing etc. Be as detailed as you can. Then over time you can look back to determine if a pattern exists. YOU will also be able to determine if recognizing claircognizance moments have increased and if the information you are accepting is more detailed. I guarantee YOU will be amazed.
Clear seeing. Seeing with your minds eye a color, symbol, word, spirit, person, food, a home etc. It is also possible to physically see with your own two eyes. Trusting that YOU are actually seeing something is the key. What you are seeing, whether it is with your minds eye or your own eyes, and being able to describe the image accurately comes with practice. ( color yellow, is it just the color or is it a lemon?) Trusting that what you are seeing is important and conveying the image accurately comes with practice. An example I give is this scenario. During a development practice I saw a parrot on top of a red pineapple. (I know pineapples are not supposed to be red. More of this story later) I trusted that the image I saw was accurate, described it to the person I was Reading. To my astonishment the image was accurate. The woman's grandmother had a statue that was as described. The parrot pineapple image was seen with my mind's eye. However at the beginning of many Medium readings I can see the Energy of Souls with my physical eyes.
In your journal write down whatever you see unexpectedly. Be as detailed as possible. Was it a number? Which number, was it floating, suspended, written on paper in pen or pencil, etc. In the beginning of development many people see images out of the corner of their eye. Is it your mind's eye or your physical eyes? Try to make that determination. For me I can tell the difference based upon the depth perception of the image and the position of the image to the location of my two eyes. In other words if the image is at my forehead, which is the location of our mind's eye, and close to me then I know I am not seeing with my physical eyes. The clairvoyance experience is with my mind's eye.
Clear Hearing. The ability to hear sounds, voices and words. The Energies of our Soul can and do communicate with sound, we can hear their voices and words. In order to hear the sounds and words we must accept the reality of Clairaudience. As with the other Clairs practice and development is necessary. Some Mediums can hear more clearly than other Mediums. The same with Psychics. Clairaudience can be heard with the mind's eye or with your physical ears. When heard with your mind's eye, the sound or words may feel like they are in your head. You may also experience someone talking to you, hearing the words with your own two ears, when no one is psychically in your presence. This is Clairaudience. The sounds or words can be loud, a whisper and even sound like your mom or dad. Have you ever had a conversation in your head with someone? That is clairaudience using your mind's eye. Have you heard a warning or a word but when you looked to see who said it no one is there? That is Clairaudience.
In your journal record what you hear. Determine if it is with your mind's eye or your physical ears. Did you hear a complete word or perhaps a letter? A whistle, a door closing, the clatter of a tea cup onto a saucer? Was the voice familiar, high pitched, do you Know who was communicating with you? Without analyzing or thinking about the words or sounds record the event in your journal. Details matter so record what you were doing, where you were, what were you thinking, date and if possible the time. No hesitation. No analyzing. Trust what you heard. After a month of journaling you can look back and be able to read what you heard and the date and time. Maybe the Energy of a Soul was communicating with you around an anniversary of a life event or was just reminding you the Energy is with you always, or answering a question you put out in the Universe. There are so many possibilities.
Clear Feeling. Clairsentience can be overwhelming. The feeling or sensation can be through your mind's eye or physical. It is possible for the Energies of a Soul to give YOU the feeling or sensation of not being able to breathe, sticking a needle in an arm, the peace of crossing over, the emotions the Energy had towards an individual are just a few. Through development and practice Clairsentience can be controlled so YOU as the recipient of the feelings and sensations will be able to feel without your own emotions overwhelming the experience.
Once again your journal or your chosen form of recording and documenting of your experiences and events is important. Be as detailed as possible. Who were you thinking about? What was the sensation? Did you feel a lump in your throat, pain in your abdomen, feel peace or love towards someone? Anger? Record where you were, when the experience occurred. Were YOU with a friend, family member or a co-worker?
Clear Smell. Messages or information can come in the form of a smell or smells. Once again your mind's eye or your own nose can receive the messages and information from the Energies of our Soul. The pot roast your mom use to make, the smell of gasoline, a perfume, or particular tea are some examples of messages and information. Clairsalience, clear smell, usually does not occur when driving past a Bar B Q restaurant, that smell may cause memories to come flooding into your mind. Clear smell is authentic when a smell is detected but the source is nowhere near or around YOU.
Detail the Clairsalience occurrence in your journal. Be detailed with your description. Was the scent familiar? Did it sting your nose, remind you of a specific person, place or event? What were you doing, were you thinking of anybody? Was the smell pungent, fruity? Record your notes without thinking, analyzing, or dismissing the experience.
Clear Taste. The ability to taste a message or information provided by the Energies of our Soul that live in the Stars. If you tasted spearmint and are chewing gum chances are it's the gum flavor. However if the flavor of the gum tastes like a pork chop or a lime you have experienced Clairgustance. Clear tasting is the unexpected taste of anything, not connected to food or drink you may be enjoying. Clairgustance can, like all the other Clairs occur at anytime. Recognizing the event requires for most people practice and development.
By now after reading about all the Clairs you should know what to do. Your journal. Details, be specific.
Please read the section below MORE EXPLAINING. I promise you it is interesting stuff to read about. Go ahead you came this far!!! Just scroll.
As the journey of practicing and developing Your Psychic and Medium skills begins or continues YOU will discover that one Clair may be easier to understand and recognize over the others. Or YOU could have several Clairs blossom at one time. There are no set rules.
Overlapping of Clairs happens all the time. The occurrence of Clair overlap is at times not even perceptible. Other times you could experience several Clairs almost at the same time. Ex. You see the color yellow, smell a citrus lemon scent, and know the message pertains to a Lemon. (Later we can explore what more is connected to the lemon, how to get the "more", and convey it to the person that needs the message or information.) Or one Clair could be dominate for a longer moment and then the others come in. Again no set rules. The development of the Clairs depends on YOU. The amount of time you can devote to Focus, Practice, Development and Acceptance will be the determining factor.
The Clairs have been defined according to my experience, development and understanding. Other explanations and definitions are on the internet. Please look up any of the Clairs defined or anything on my website that does not make sense to you. Research until a definition or explaination is a connection. At times that is what I need to do. If something discussed in a development class or Message Circle causes me to squint my eyebrows together and purse frown my lips I know further research is required. I will read books, websites or email other members of my community to find the details that make sense to me. That is how YOU can develop your own Psychic and Medium personality. Research what doesn't resonate with you and accept that which does.
Each of us are unique individuals and our experiences in the metaphysical community will be as unique. In another section of my website YOU can read a list of additional specialized topics. Links to websites will be available for some of those topics.
