Clairvoyance is a term originating from the French `clair` meaning clear and `voyance` meaning vision. The person who sees clearly is said to be able to see objects, persons, happenings and locations with other than the known and scientifically approved senses. Clairvoyance is part of extrasensory perception where yet unknown senses help the Clairvoyant to visualise and interpret information. This method of seeing information is not approved by the scientific community due to lack of proof, instead Parapsychology attempts to explore the means of `clear-vision`.

A Clairvoyant can achieve connections with the ghosts and spirits of deceased persons and through communication interpret between the still living relatives and the long dead. Due to this characteristic Clairvoyance is closely related to spiritualism but it is different to mind reading. The ground of communication is achieved through `trance` where the Clairvoyant is in another state of mind which allows for such interaction.

Seeing the past is often combined with seeing and feeling contemporary events, this combined power is regarded as a higher state of mind and related to Remote Viewing which will be explored in the following articles.

The person is considered a Medium when is blessed with the power of Clairvoyance, the medium acts as a window to past or present events, the Medium is not concerned with the future.

Possible uses of Clairvoyance:

Governments such as the USA are and were experimenting with using Clairvoyants at events such as floods, earthquakes and in the past they were used to spy over Russian territory in their sleep in order to detect missiles and other military organisations. Great results were recorded, however sceptics remain adamant that such techniques should not be used in answering important questions where people`s lives at stake.

During murder investigations where there are no results Clairvoyance is applied to find victims, define suspects and give guidelines about the next possible steps which the suspect might take. Seeing can help obtain information of personalities and motives behind murders.

Three main categories:

Precognition: viewing an event before it happens.

Spontaneous: viewing the event while it is happening in real time no matter how far the Clairvoyant is from it.

Retro-cognition: viewing an event from the past.

Clairaudience is the term used when information is obtained primarily through hearing, while Clairsentience is when the person gains information through feelings such as holding someone`s hand and by doing so acquires information. The best tool or we can say the method is creative visualization, which is nothing but the ability to forecast things that would happen in the near future. Isn’t it very nice to have this skill? If the thoughts are so powerful, it can travel from one’s mind to other. Imagine what would happen if everyone has got the ability of visualizing things even before they happen? However, these skills should be used for creative purposes only and not for destructive purposes. Especially it should not be used with ghosts or evil, for it will create a negative impact.
