What is clairvoyance?

Science has a hard time explaining clairvoyant events, and that is precisely why many people are interested in clairvoyance. One is drawn to the mysterious, the inexplicable…


Clairvoyance is the ability to perceive people, things or events without external sensory stimuli. The word perception is in quotation marks because clairvoyance is not about normal, but about paranormal observations. These paranormal sightings are usually quite cool and lacking in detail. That is why people do not like to use the term clairvoyance because they do not see clearly at all. A better term is paranormal observation, i.e. observing things that deviate from normal.

Mind’s eye or sixth sense

Clear seeing is just as well known as clear hearing and clear feeling. The difference is that clear vision happens in a paranormal way. This means that you do not use the function of your eyes, but of your third eye, also known as the mind’s eye or sixth sense. This eye is located somewhere in the middle of the forehead. You see an image, event or situation appear in your mind’s eye like a small film that can relate to the present, past or future. This event is called candling. The clairvoyant can see not only into the present, past and future, but also into the minds of other people. A distinction is therefore made between clairvoyance in time (present, past and future), and clairvoyance in space (thoughts of others). When clairvoyance develops in a person, he or she often feels a painful spot on the forehead because the third eye is located there. To relieve the pain, massage the forehead with the middle and index fingers of the right hand.

Carl Jung

Statements made by clairvoyants are often not taken seriously because people do not understand them. For several centuries, clairvoyants have been able to answer questions without being able to say how they arrived at them. This was changed by Carl Jung, a psychologist from the 20th century. Jung believed that every person is given the characteristic of that time at birth, which occurs at a certain time. According to him, this is also how our inner self is formed. We all bear the imprint of the time and place in which we came into the world, a time and place that shapes our individual destinies. He was also the first to say that clairvoyance was only possible if you were in touch with yourself. So you have to know yourself inside and out and find inner peace before you can perceive with your mind’s eye. For example, when we struggle with life questions, it is because we allow our inner knowledge of the truth to be influenced by people, events, from outside. In this case, this means that you are not yet able to perceive paranormal things. According to Jung, clairvoyants must be able to follow their intuitive abilities. This intuitive ability is suppressed in education because adults teach their children that the imagination, our fantasy, is not real. According to them, our imagination is unreliable and not based on the real world. We therefore ignore our intuitive messages as we grow up, while the intuitive ability is one of the most reliable sources of information within ourselves. Knowing without reasoning, i.e. without the intervention of the mind, is also very important in clairvoyance, according to Carl Jung. He has proven that most people only use their left hemisphere, while the right hemisphere is just as important. The right hemisphere contains intuition and feelings, so this half knows everything, while the left hemisphere, which contains the intellectual functions, thinks.

To dream

So not everyone can see clearly, but everyone can dream. Dreams are also a form of clairvoyance. They have a meaning and can predict events.
