Let’s talk about the different clairs. No, not that group of cool girls in high-school that all were named clair. I am talking about the different ways we get our intuitive information. Such as: clairvoyance, clairsentience, clairaudience, and claircognizance. Clair is the Greek word for clear. So when you see it combined with another word, it is just stating that the person is very clear in communication with God, or the universe if you prefer.
Let’s start with the Biggy. The one that seems to be the most sought after and recognized, clairvoyance. Clairvoyance is clear seeing. Seeing with the inner sight, not just having 20/20 vision. These people tend to have a little camera in their head that shows them pictures, colors, images, numbers, or symbols all the way up to a rolling movie in their minds eye. These messages can be received from the past, present, future, spirit guides or loved ones that have past. It is often described as very vivid day dreaming.
Feel drained when you are in a large crowd? People who are clairsentience or empathic have “clear” feelings. The reason I put clear in quotes is because before this gift is recognized it is very hard for the person to tell if what they are feeling is in their body or someone else’s. Yep. These people can feel others emotions and sometimes physical ailments. It is exhausting. People with this pathway often avoid large crowds, as they get worn out from others negative energy. These people are seen as extra sensitive. These are people that get angry if someone around them is agitated (guilty as charged). Some with this gift can touch objects that belonged to a person and tell different traits about that person. Under clairsentience, I like to include two subgroups: clairalience and clairgustance. Clairalience is clear smelling. So they will smell things that other cannot. Such as a loved ones perfume, cigarette smoke, a favorite flower or food. Where as a clairgustance will taste the object. (This is fun when you are in a restaurant and trying to decide what to eat).
Is there that little voice that seems to pop up whenever you need advice or there is a deceased loved one that needs to relay a message. Then you are a clairaudience, or clear hearing. Now, to be clear, if there is a spirit in a room and it makes a noise so that everyone can hear it, that is not clairaudience. A person that is clairaudient can hear things that no one else can. The voice is usually similar to their own voice and tends to come from the same space around their head each time. If it doesn’t come from that spot, then it is usually just a random thought or your friends playing a trick on you.
Ever have little ideas or bits of knowledge that just pop into your mind? Well maybe you are claircognizance. People with this pathway just know without logic or being told information about a person, place or event. The thoughts just pop up like the old pop up videos on VH1.
Everyone has the ability to get their information from any of these pathways. However, one or two of the pathways tend to be the dominate for most people. I hope you enjoyed meeting the different sides of clair.
