The Different Types Of Psychic Abilities

The Different Psychic Abilities

What does being psychic mean to you? Do you think all psychics look into a crystal ball and see the future? What about ghosts? Do you think all psychics see ghosts walking around everywhere they go? Well, the fact is that most of the time it’s not like that at all. Psychic abilities are broken into four main categories and are manifested in a wide variety of skillsets.

I’ve written about the four clairs individually but never have I condensed them all into one post. Most people have heard of clairvoyance but not everyone has heard of claircognizance, clairsentience, or clairaudience. These are the four clair-abilities and the way that psychics receive their information! 

To be clairvoyant means that you are able to see clearly. It may be spirit that you’re seeing, it may be visions, it may be energy, or it may be different perspectives. Clairvoyant people can see things that others can’t and yes, that means ghosts!

There are many different ways that clairvoyance can manifest. For instance, when a psychic is looking into a crystal ball she is using a technique called scrying. This allows her to receive psychic visions.

Most times, however, clairvoyance shows up internally, almost like mini movies playing in the mind’s eye. Spirit uses memories, symbols, and visions to help bring across their messages. Eventually, psychics will build up a “library” using certain metaphors and visions spirit repeatedly uses to help deliver their messages.

If you see faces when you close your eyes, see colors in meditation, or see things out of your peripheral, you may be clairvoyant!

If you’re clairsentient it means that you have the ability to feel clearly. To add to that, since you can feel so clearly you’re probably a pretty strong empath as well! Clairsentience means that you may sense the emotions of other people (and spirit). Not only can you sense emotions but you can also sense energy and the presence of a spirit in the room!

Have you ever had the feeling of being watched and no one was in the room with you? A Clear sign that you were picking up on a spirit presence!

The gift of clear knowing is claircognizance. People who are claircognizant just know things! They know what people are feeling and they get downloads of information from out of nowhere. They can even tell immediately upon meeting someone new if that person can be trusted or not.

If you’re claircognizant you may know what someone is thinking or feeling. You might also know something about them that they never told you! Claircognizant people often get feelings that they just can’t shake and they feel a strong pull in their gut to follow it!

If you’re clairaudient that means you have clear hearing! The ability to hear things other people don’t such as internal guidance and spirit messages. Clairaudient messages are usually heard internally. People with this gift have however been known to hear their name being called or people talking to them when no one else is around. Most of the time, however, these messages are internal and can be heard deep within the head. Many people report hearing them from one side or the other.

If you’re someone that is constantly talking to themselves, arguing with themselves, or having full on conversations with other people in your head – then you may be clairaudient!

There are ways to expand upon each of these gifts and use them in your daily life! Don’t worry, you don’t have to start giving readings just because you have the ability to tap into spirit. Remember though, you do have the capability to receive higher guidance, see situations for what they really are, and expand upon your own intuition. When you start trusting your intuition and you work with these gifts that are already inside of you all of life seems to flow much more easily.

If you’re interested in learning more about each clair in depth, how they work, and how you can work with them then I invite you to check out the intuitive development course! This course provides you with all the tools you need to start working with your strongest gifts. It also provides the tools to work with spirit effectively while being protected and only working in the light!
