Note from Brandon: Today, I am publishing a post that Justin contributed on psychic abilities. I hope you enjoy his contribution.
Now, here's Justin!
Now that Co-creation Coaching has opened its full playbook; I have been unleashed. So, as that you’ve been clamoring for a blog on psychic abilities, your wish is now fulfilled.
As you know, psychic abilities are our way of connecting to spirit through our higher self; I like to think of them as extensions of hour physical senses which give us the ability to interact with and touch the Universe. So, without further a due, let’s begin our journey into the psychic abilities.
A person who is clairvoyant, or possesses second sight is a Clear seer who can see into the future or deep remote past. The seer may possess the ability to see into past lives, or future lives, and anywhere else on the planet, or in the Universe. Someone with clairvoyance can also see spirits, deities, Angels, spirit guides, ghosts, ancestors, the dead, auras, and can generally interact with the spirit world and the Universe via their 3rd eye, also known as the sixth chakra, which is in the center of the forehead. When it is fully opened, you might get a sensation of warmth, or tingling which can be felt from front to back.
Another use of clairvoyance is to gain clarity about is situation. It allows for the ability to view it from different perspectives and even glimpse alternate futures and outcomes.
There are two ways by which information can be presented to the clairvoyant. One is through complete images, as if the individual is watching a movie. Mystics, saints, and other people who are exceptionally psychic have been able to observe events in real time from far away. A high School student named Clair was able to observe the Christmas service at her church on the wall of her room while she lay in her sick bed. Some years later, Saint Claire was dubbed as one of the patrons for clairvoyants.
The second way is through symbols which are seen through the third eye, but must be interpreted intuitively through the emotional guidance system. That is usually the way my clairvoyance works, and I’ve practiced calling up the energy of symbology, most especially pertaining to animals similar to what a shaman would do, but I can also use my second sight to see images in my mind’s eye. It was said that the Goddess Bridget gave Merlin clear vision all the way until the end of time.
Precognition is seeing into the future, an ability which can present itself very early on in childhood. The seer can perceive events before they take place, and at times, can come onto the person without warning, such as when children reported seeing a house fire before it happened. Too many sightings of random events can cause the second sight to shut down due to fear.
Retro-cognition is when the clairvoyant can see past events in their own life, or in the lives of others. Clairvoyants can also use their ability to merge different time streams for events that have happened in the past, or to effect possible future outcomes. Using this technique on past events in the current lifetime allows the individual to benefit from the positive energy of having made a different decision or also to release negative energy from the time. The same technique can also be applied for past lives to release negative karma. Altering future events in the future can help to orchestrate favorable outcome for events which the person has yet to experience.
Picture that job interview before you get there; see yourself walking in, shaking hands, and interviewing with the interviewer slowly in your mind’s eye. That’s a way to use clairvoyance to visualize a future outcome. Replay back an argument from the past, and just notice the expressions on everyone’s face. Step outside of your body and notice the expression on yours. Have you used clairvoyance in this fashion before?
An often-overlooked aspect of clairvoyance is its assistance with the spark of creation. Let your imagination run wild, and allow God to contact you through Christ consciousness, another name for the 3rd eye, with big dreams and ideas. Many of my best ideas have come through just such daydreaming, so I’ve learned to pay attention to those ideas.
Clairaudience, or clear hearing is the ability to hear the Universe. Clairaudience is located in the throat, or fifth chakra. An individual using clairaudience can pick up sounds from a wide array of sources from anywhere in the Universe, and from any time and place. Using clairaudience, communication with spirits such as deities, angels, ancestors, your higher self, and many others is possible.
What do the messages sound like? The incoming communication can sound like your own voice, or vastly different. shamans have used the voices in their head from their own higher self or from other spirits for divine communication since the beginning of time. Some people report only hearing the voice of guidance, sometimes referred to as the still small voice when they are in need, however, you may be hearing the message from your higher self, spiritual guides, an ancestor, or other spiritual beings including famous figures without realizing it. Messages can come through your internal hearing, or external hearing. Either way is viable if the message is delivered and the recipient can perceive it. Your spiritual guides will choose the best way for you to hear the message. If you aren’t sure, if what you’ve heard is really from God or spirit, ask for a sign, they’ll send you one.
Music is one often used method of contact. Has a song ever popped in your head, only for you to hear it somewhere later? Pay attention, because that maybe your guides sending you a message. Try to remember back to what you were thinking about when that song played in your head to trace down the answer; now, you’re a psychic detective…
music can also derive from the spirit realm, and some of the greatest composers have reported hearing their music in full before playing it as if someone was playing them the song. Prince would have entire songs manifest in full via clairaudience from spirit, and he would have to hurry to write them down. I’ve also read about where people visiting an area could hear music played back in that time before, as well as people interacting with each other as if the person wasn’t there. Maybe it’s an argument, a celebration, or a dance; if you can align with the signal, you can eavesdrop. You voyeur you… Sometimes, you can even speak with the spirits of that place if they wish to interact with you.
It is also possible for an event is so intense that it leaves an imprint. Plantations where lots of violence and death have taken place are such places, as well as old battlefields. The events which were taking place at the time can be heard by someone walking through the area. Sylvia Browne told a story about how during one of her workshops, our time seemed to merge with the time of the resurrection during a discussion pertaining to the event. Sounds from that time period bled over, such as screams and shouts, so that the workshop participants could actually hear them. It’s also possible to use clear hearing while projecting yourself into the future to hear future events.
Also, referred to as clear feeling, clairsentience is the ability to receive psychic impression through feeling and emotions. It is usually associated with the second chakra, though some books and internet sites will also have it located in the third or fourth chakra as well. Clairsentience is an ability which can often span the entire system from head to toe, and indeed, I get feelings throughout my entire body.
Clairsentience is the most prevalent psychic ability, and the easiest to just use by accident, yet most people do not understand it. How many times have you said, “I just don’t like the feel I get from…” or “I’m getting some good vibes.” It’s not as obvious, and it is usually linked with another one of the psychic senses, but that is your psychic intuition.
Also, I’d like to preface that it can be difficult to separate the different kinds of clairsentience due to the integration of the various types. There are two ways by which information is received through clairsentience. The first is through emotions, and the second is through touch. Feeling emotions can include perceiving the thoughts and memories of others; fear, anger, jealousy, happiness, sadness, joy, love, and many other emotions and other feelings can be transmitted and felt between people through clairsentience, most notably, the skill of empathy. Getting a feeling about a place or person such as having been there before, or knowing that an individual is a friend, or a threat is also transmitted through clairsentience.
Have you ever felt as if you’ve visited somewhere before, or that you’ve known someone before? If so, you are tapping into your feelings of clairsentience. Those gut feelings can also impart knowledge to you, such as a sense of danger, or the feeling that you know you are on the right path. It is the inner feeling of being in flow with the Universe.
The skill of empathy can be very handy for artists, and those who are in the healing professions, such as massage and Reiki. It is possible however, to be overwhelmed by the emotional energy of the clients; such persons must learn strong yet mutable psychic protections to keep out the deluge of psychic impression from their clients, yet maintain the ability to use their empathy in order to help them. It’s possible to project yourself into the future or the past and receive psychic impressions through feeling, in the same manner as with clairvoyance and clairaudience.
The second way of receiving psychic clairsentience is through touch. It’s one of the best ways to truly feel the universal flow. When you are grounded, you may be able to feel your auric shield around you, especially if you ramp up your protection. Have you ever felt your guides around you; the presence of deity nearby, or the sense of protection from your guardians? It’s a tangible thing, similar to tension on a cable or wire. Have you ever had an angel brush lightly against your skin? Being the largest organ on the human body, your skin, along with your auric field is really useful for clear touch. You can also feel other people’s energy coupled with the emotional feeling which can manifest physically; remember how I said the abilities of clairsentience blend together? When you can sense the shift in energy around you, either someone’s energy, or the universal flow, that is the touch aspect of clairsentience, but it can mix with the emotion aspect as well.
Energy healers such as Reiki practitioners, massage therapists, and a myriad of other energy modalities rely heavily upon clairsentience. it is possible to send energy as well as receiving, and sending is the other side of clairsentience which is a form of energy manipulation.
So, what ways have you felt spirit? There are other ways by which clear feeling can manifest its-self than what you’ve found here. Clairsentience, often overlooked, might be the most varied and useful of the psychic abilities. It’s the way humans are, human.
Claircognizance is an ability rarely discussed, yet is still one of the big four. Claircognizance, or clear knowing is unexplained knowledge, a sense of knowing that a thing is so without any way of backing it up. Have you even just known something was going to happen, like someone was going to contact you. Did that person enter your thoughts at some point before they called? Did fragments of information about a situation come to you without warning, and for no reason? That is claircognizance.
Unexplained answers, facts, and information is suddenly made available to you. I have had this happen several times, but this psychic skill is one I’m planning to practice more because I think that I miss it without one of the other psychic abilities heavily involved. I’ve just known a thing before, and spent days over researching it.
Whether it is from spirit, a deity, an angel, or from your higher self does not matter. It blends seamlessly at times with one or more of the other psychic senses, in fact, they all blend together, but there are instances when claircognizance is the reason for knowledge which is implanted into your mind.
Other Psychic abilities
These last two are not as plentiful, but I’d be remiss if I didn’t at least give them a mention. They are clairgustance, and clairalience, both of which are usually associated in the root chakra.
Clairgustance is tasting something intuitively without having eaten it. I’ve actually tasted my grandmother’s chocolate cake before during meditation, and at times when a certain context triggers those memories. I’ve walked into someone’s house here in Columbia which reminded me of the one in Barnwell. I could taste grandma’s chocolate cake.
Mediums experience this more than the rest of us; taste and smell are ways that ancestors will sometimes communicate with us, and mediums act as a bridge for communication to the other side. I was at a session where we were getting messages from our relatives, when the medium began coughing due to the smoke from the psychic impression of a house fire. I could actually see the fire, and smell the smoke along with the medium.
Clairalience, also referred to as, clear smelling is the ability to detect an odor that isn’t there; such as my grandma’s chocolate cake, or the familiar scent of a deceased relative, such as their favorite perfume. Maybe your uncle wants you to know he is around by ensuring that you smell cigars; that would be something I’d do for my relatives… I was on the phone with a friend in New York, when I smelled his fast food while he was eating. It smelled good.
