In the early days of acknowledging or discussing it, psychic perception was known as the ‘sixth sense’. This focus defined psychic ability as a sense beyond the traditional five senses most commonly acknowledged by Western Cultures. In those day’s discussions on this subject focused on skills such as ESP (extra sensory perception), astral travelling and hands on healing. It was commonly thought that psychic abilities and perceptions were the amazing and rare gift of a limited few.
More recently however awareness has developed to the recognition that although some come into their psychic ability loudly and naturally, in fact, psychic perception is something that all people have, even though most are not aware of it, and that with dedication, psychic perception can be developed into a powerful and useful tool. Furthermore it can be developed into skills that support individuals in their daily lives and work and most importantly their spiritual or soul awareness and purpose.
With this awareness came the interest of many more people to understand and develop their abilities and so psychics began sharing deeper knowledge about psychic ability and it’s definitions such as the ‘Clairs’.
- Clairvoyance meaning ‘clear seeing’;
- Clairsentience, ‘clear sensing’,
- Clairaudience, ‘clear hearing’,
- Claircognisance, ‘clear knowing’.
The above lists the most common of the taught ‘clairs’, however it is not exhaustive and there are new ‘clairs’ being added regularly. The ‘clairs’ can be useful to some degree when developing people’s awareness of their psychic perception and training them in ways and means of using it, however, they can present limitations and problems as well.
When addressing Psychic Perception there is a lot to consider that impacts how an individual perceives and even recognises what is going on. Much of what comes in is complex and subtle in its stream of information. For example, you may receive information in a dream, or during meditation, or directly because you ask for it. You may get an instant image, or a complex set of ideas and fluid information or a mix of knowledge, images and more. Sometimes information can be relayed as a kind of ‘sonar’ image, a vibrational complex shape that encompasses image and consciousness, I have yet to find a better way to define it however those that have experienced it themselves, will likely recognise what I’m talking about. The point is, using the ‘clairs’ as a foundation for working with psychic perception quickly becomes inadequate at an introductory level. Too many people just don’t identify with these simplistic definitions and pass what they experience off as ‘intuitive’ when in fact, it’s much more complex than the primary ‘clairs’ allow for.
In more recent years I have changed my definitions and teaching of psychic abilities and have found that doors open for people who had otherwise not been able to identify themselves as psychic. In my training now I focus on terms such as ‘Presence’ meaning ‘depth of awareness’, and acknowledge that people can perceive information beyond the traditional ‘non psychic senses’. There is so much to share here, perhaps too much to put into a single article, however I shall provide a basic outline to begin with.
Essentially, the awareness begins with that of the major Chakra system. The Chakras are a set of portals that exist within the complex energy system of the human being. They connect a person to their soul, the human race, the planet, solar system and the world (amongst other systems we belong to). Each of these systems mentioned (soul, human race, etc) have their own unified field of energy that holds shapes and consciousness that define that individual system. Being connected to these fields via the chakras enables you to walk around and live your daily life in the world amongst others, experiencing your life, your work, your relationships as well as growing and developing and changing as you live. Your chakra system is constantly receiving and sending out information the subject of which depends largely on your focus in life both in the moment as well as your broader intentions and interests.
There are more than seven major chakras in the Chakra System, with seven chakras focusing on the daily world. Each chakra receives information in a different way, visual, intellect, words, sensing and more (these are very simplistic definitions for an extremely sophisticated system) and then your system integrates the information into a unified flow of consciousness that you are able to interpret. If you’ve ever wondered why so much focus is put on the clearing and balancing of the Chakra system, this is why. It is that damage and imbalance with and between the chakras results in distortion and mayhem in the information both coming in and going out into the world. It actually impacts your experience in life. Clearing, healing and balancing your chakra system regularly can have a huge impact on your psychic perception and your life.
As you may realise from what I have shared in this article, there is so much more to the subject. My intention for this article is that the information provided here is clear enough that it will begin to open doors for people diving into the development of their psychic presence.
