What Is Clairvoyance?

The word “Clairvoyance” means “clear seeing,” or “clear sight,” but its special meaning, set by extended usage, is “A power of discerning objects not perceptible to the normal senses.” When it comes to the technical use of psychic research and occultism, however, there is found a confused meaning of the word, some applying it in one sense, and others in another one. 

The English Society for Psychical Research describes the term as follows: “The faculty or act of perceiving, as though visually. With some coincidental truth, some distant scene; it is sometimes used for transcendental vision, or the perception of beings regarded as on another plane of existence.” In one of the reports to the English Society for Psychical Research, a distinguished investigator along psychic lines states, “The word ‘clairvoyant’ is often used very loosely, and with widely different meanings. Throughout history, there have been numerous places and times when people have claimed themselves or others to be clairvoyant.

Many Christian saints were said to be able to see or know things that were far removed from their immediate sensory perception as a kind of gift from God, including Columba of Iona, Padre Pio, and Anne Catherine Emmerich. In the Gospels, Jesus Christ is also recorded as being able to know things that were far removed from His immediate human perception. In other religions, similar stories of specific individuals being able to see things far removed from their immediate sensory perception are commonplace, especially within pagan religions where oracles were used. Prophecy often involved some degree of Clairvoyance, especially when future events were predicted.

In most cases, however, the ability to see things was attributed to a higher power within the person and not thought of as an ability that lay himself.

Where is it used?

About the ability of clear-sightedness, Clairvoyance refers to the paranormal ability to see persons and events that are distant in time or space. It can be divided into roughly three classes: precognition, the ability to perceive or predict future events, retrocognition, the ability to see past events, and remote viewing—the perception of contemporary events happening outside of the range of ordinary knowledge.

In Jainism, Clairvoyance is regarded as one of the five kinds of knowledge. The beings of hell and heaven (devas) are said to possess clairvoyance by birth.

How is it used?

The phenomena of Clairvoyance may be subdivided (a) according to methods employed, and also (b) according to general distinctions. The said classifications follow:
Classification According to Methods. The classification of Clairvoyant Phenomena according to methods employed, proceeds as follows: (1) Psychometry, in which the clairvoyant becomes en rapport through the medium of some physical object connected with the person or scene which is the object of the en rapport connection; (2) Crystal Gazing, etc., in which the en rapport connection is established using a crystal, magic mirror, etc., into which the clairvoyant gazes; (3) Direct Clairvoyance, in which the clairvoyant directly establishes the en rapport connection using raising his or her psychic vibrations to become “in tune” with more excellent vibrations of Nature, without the aid of physical objects.

The classification of Clairvoyant Phenomena, according to general distinctions, proceeds as follows:

  • Present Clairvoyance, in which the objects perceived by the clairvoyant are present in Space and Time, although invisible to regular sight.
  • Space Clairvoyance, in which the clairvoyant vision includes objects and scenes removed in space from the immediate normal perception of the clairvoyant.
  • Time Clairvoyance, in which the clairvoyant perceives objects or scenes removed from him in past time or future time.
