8 Major Psychic Powers
There are eight major "clair"
psychic powers or abilities ranging from the most well known,
clairvoyance, all the way to little known clairalience and
Let's run through what each of these are and how they
can help in everyday life situations.
This is the ability to SEE clearly, whether through your
mind's eye and with visions, or through your actual eyes (which is rarer). Psychics who do
readings, 'see' in their mind's eye situations or people and can
describe this to their clients. This power never works alone and is always
complimented by other abilities that help to make sense of the
information, such as clairsentience and clairaudience. Yet, it is
through clairvoyance that a psychic quickly receives visual
pass on. They can describe things clearly like a person, a new love, a residence or new workplace, or other situations.
Some of the abilities on this page can be learned, such as
clairvoyance, through practise and sensitivity, whilst some others
cannot be learned. Learn how to Develop Your Clairvoyance
Clairsentience is perhaps the most common of all the clairs, and it is
the ability to FEEL things around a situation, a person, or a future experience.
You may see the picture with clairvoyance, but to feel it is to know many things about
it. Clairsentients often pick up feelings from others (and may also
have increased empathy) but can also feel into the future. They can tell you how relevant parties
are feeling, what their mood is, or how likely they are to react to a change.
You can get a good view of the situation with clairsentience.
Clairsentient people can also pick up feelings of those around them in
life, even strangers who are walking past. This is why this clair is
the most common of all, and probably most people have it in some sense.
You may tell how someone is feeling by their body language, but can you
feel what they're trying to hide? If you know how someone is
feeling and there is no visual clue, then you are sensing it
clairsentiently. Read more at Develop Your Clairsentience
Clairaudience is the ability to HEAR telepathically, either your angels
and guides or passed loved ones. You hear the voices in your mind, as
well as perhaps seeing and feeling them as per the above abilities. All
of these senses work together. I work with angels often and I hear them
very clearly; I also sense them and their laughter although I do not
Clairsentience is basically the same thing as telepathy. You will use
this sense if you are 'channeling'. You can learn to listen to what is
in your mind and learn to improve this ability. Many people who hear
voices, or are described as schizophrenic, may be hearing actual voices
from disincarnate spirits who decide to bug them or want them to do
destructive actions. Ask your angels to remove any beings if you are
being bugged by them and to take them to the light. Read more and learn this skill at Develop Your Clairaudience
Claircognizance is clear KNOWING and is a very interesting one. Many
people may have this occasionally but not be aware of it, as it's one
power than cannot be cultivated or learned. It kind of strikes and
allows us to take advantage of the errant knowledge. This knowledge may come from our guides or Higher Self.
It happens when you suddenly know something out of the blue, are
absolutely certain of it, but the knowledge came seemingly from
nowhere. It's likened to an instant download of data to your mind. For
example, you are
looking at buying a car and the second you see a certain car, you are
sure it has no engine issues and you know somehow this is the one that
will work out; it feels destined. Or someone may tell you about an
investment and without knowing why, you know it will fail, and you
your life on it. Read more about this skill at What Is Claircognizance?
Many people are empaths and clairempathy is described as clear
EMOTIONAL FEELING. It is the picking up of emotion when physically
around another person, or even an animal in the case of an animal
empath. The difference between
clairempathy can clairsentience is that sentience is about feeling
emotion at a distance, and feeling them from the past and future as
well. Whereas empathy is about picking up on an emotion whilst with
someone in present time, without trying to. Often empaths have to learn
what to do with other people's impinging emotions to block, shield or
I use clairsentience all the time but I also have a good measure of empathy as well.
I can pick up feelings and emotions when I do readings. Empaths can
tend to have a lot of water in their charts or in fact be water signs
(cancer, scorpio, and pisces) and are usually adversely affected by the
emotions they feel, which are unwelcome. Read more at Are You A Psychic Empath?
Clairtangency, otherwise known as Psychometry, is the sense of clear
TOUCH. Through touching an object, one can tell you information about
places the object has been, who owned it, how they felt and information
of this kind. Clairtangency can be used by a psychic reader, who will
commonly ask you if
they can hold a ring or piece of jewellery. Other psychics may reach
over and begin by holding your hands directly, if this is how they tune
in. For those who don't possess psychometry, it may seem as if they are
using the other psychic talents, yet this is a separate clair based on
reading the energy left behind on the object. All objects contain
energy that can be read.
I do not have much psychometry myself, yet sometimes I can't even touch an
object, or bring myself to go near to it, because it is holding bad
energies. Like a repelling magnet, my hand is blocked by an invisible
force, so clairtangency is definitely real. To read more about it go to this article What Is Psychometry?
Clairalience is clear SMELLING and as the name suggests, you can
smell odours out of the blue when there is no physical source for them. Usually you're at home
and you may smell baking, or the smell of cigarette smoke, or fish, or
whatever odour that suggests someone to you who has passed over. This can be their way of visiting you and giving you a message.
Some people may smell beautiful perfume of flowers that suggest an
angel may be with them. This is a specific talent that not many people
have but if you're giving a reading, you can suggest the smell and it
will recall to the client a particular person who always smelled that
way, or had a favourite flower, etc. Read more at What Is Clairalience?
Clairgustance is clear TASTING and means you can taste certain things
that you have not actually eaten. It occurs, again as with
clairalience, usually as a sign from angels or passed loved ones, and the item you can taste will
indicate someone significant who is associated with the taste. For
example you can taste fresh bread, tea, chocolate, in fact it could be
anything. This ability is useful when giving readings as it can
indicate to the client who you are talking about and validate clearly
that they are present. Read more at What Is Clairgustance?
More Psychic Powers
There are more psychic powers that are not clairs, for example those
who are medical intuitives, those who are angel intuitives or who channel. I shall be writing articles about these soon so please stay tuned.
