Everyone has psychic gifts. Most people have one or two that they are the strongest in. Everyone is, of course, unique in this sense so it’s important to identify your own personal strengths in this area in order to further develop and strengthen these psychic powers.
The 4 ‘Clairs’
There are many types of psychic powers, but the 4 ‘Clairs’ are the most well-known. These are: Psychic Seeing (Clairvoyance), Psychic Knowing (Claircognizance), Psychic Feeling (Clairsentience), and Psychic Hearing (Clairaudience).
Clairsentience (Psychic Feeling)
Some people are feelers. They get information and intuition through feelings, emotions, and physical sensations. Clairsentience is the psychic power you’re using every time you “just have a feeling” about something. Often, those with this gift have great healing ability.
Clairvoyance (Psychic Seeing)
Others are clairvoyant, which means “clear seeing.” They receive their impressions through pictures. One example is something that happened to me recently at a friend’s house. She had lost her wallet. Instantly, I received an impression of a brown purse in her closet. I mentioned this to her and, as it turned out, she had put her purse away not realizing that her wallet was still in it.
Clairaudience (Psychic Hearing)
Clairaudience, or “clear hearing,” is the power of being able to hear things that aren’t actually present to the ear. People who are clairaudient receive information through hearing. Have you ever heard your name called out only to find that no one else was there? That may have been a loved one in spirit, or someone who is thinking of you.
Claircognizance (Psychic Knowing)
Claircognizance is the gift of knowing. This is the hardest psychic power to recognize as it provides insight or new awareness to things that have already happened. For instance, let’s say you wondered why a friend was so cold to you the last time you got together. Suddenly, you remember that you owe them money. This information appears as a feeling or sense.
Developing Your Psychic Powers
There are certain exercises people can do to develop their psychic powers. Mediation is the best way to do this. When we mediate, we are able to quiet our minds in order to more cleary hear the messages we are receiving. It’s helpful to have a pen and pad next to you when you are meditating so that you can record the messages or impressions you receive. There are numerous exercises one can do to develop each of their psychic powers. A simple Google search for ‘Psychic Abilities’ or ‘Psychic Powers’ would be a great start. Have fun with it!
