A clairvoyant is a person who it is said to have the ability to gain information about a person, object, location, or physical event through means other than the known human senses, also known as an extra-sensory perception. As the etymology of the word indicates, a clairvoyant is a person who has a clear vision.
However, there is not an agreement between all the scientists on the real abilities of clairvoyance a person may believe to have. One group, the larger, affirms that clairvoyants use their every-life experiences to gain that knowledge they appear to receive in an extra-sensory manner. These practitioners are said to be opportunists since they receive a lot of money from the information they provide. Even though we are a developed and scientific generation, people still believe that outer forces control our lives, our destinies. And nobody is able to know things just by looking at the eye or at a picture, they support.
The other group believes in the real extra- sensory perception of clairvoyants and they conduct many studies in order to certify the authenticity and legitimacy of what is being said. They support that this kind of people have real power over the mind. This tends to confusion sometimes. Not always dominating the mind is a synonym of telepathy. Clairvoyants gain their information by the connection to the past, or to someone that probably is dead. However, telepathy only recreates what the individual has already lived by entering in a part of the brain where those remembers have been erased completely.

Then, how can we recognize when a clairvoyant is saying lies?

First of all, you will see that he does not use any technological support as to confirm or receive the information they present. Generally, they enjoy from a very quiet, half-lighted environment.

After that, you may also notice that a clairvoyant is a fake when he/she tells you things that ordinary people could say. Analyze just a little bit: which are the most common causes why people go to see clairvoyants? First of all, they have problems, problems in the marriage, with the friends, at work… probably someone died and you cannot bare the pain. All this are general causes and general predictions ordinary clairvoyants take as a starting point.
You may also doubt of my word since the moment they discover the disease that killed your relative. That data is also provided by statistics: cancer; the highest amount of people in the world dies as a result of cancer.

A clairvoyant is totally the opposite of a supporting friend. He/she reveals deep things of your private life, predicts good and negative events for the future, and demonstrates that we are people with a background, not ordinary people that can be standardized.

You are in all your right to stand up and leave without paying if you notice that a clairvoyant is not saying the truth. Your life is worthy, you are a valuable person to say nice things about, so do not help fake clairvoyants.
