"Am I Clairvoyant?" Here's How You Can Tell
Have you ever asked yourself the question: Am I clairvoyant?
If you are reading this article, chances are yes!
There’s still some doubt surrounding clairvoyance – is it real? Is it not? We live in a society that still casts doubt over psychic abilities, where the rational mind is valued much more highly than the intuitive mind.
It has been this way for a long time now, ever since science began to dominate the scene during the Age of Enlightenment. It was good news, actually, for the “witches” in society, or anyone who dabbled in the occult, of which clairvoyance is a prominent feature because it put a halt to those among religious circles who were persecuting them.
But the downside was that while science did not persecute those with these gifts, they instead treated people with clairvoyance and psychic abilities as though they were crazy!
Science, religion, and magic have almost always been at odds with each other, but on the plus side, we are beginning to see these three factions start to work together – we may have to thank the emergence of the Age of Aquarius for that!
What Are the Different Types of Intuition?
There are different types of intuition, and clairvoyance is only one of them. Essentially, there are four different types of “clair” – clairvoyance, clairaudience, clairsentience, and claircognizance.
Clairvoyance is the ability to see things that aren’t visible to the human eye.
It can come in the form of flashes that seem unrelated to normal individuals. Still, to the clairvoyant, it will make sense in their own mind, and they can connect the dots, understanding why that particular vision came to them (even if it wouldn’t make sense to anyone else!)
Clairaudience is the ability to hear things that are not heard by the human ear. This involves hearing voices from spirits, such as spirit guides and the “higher self,” which are messages from your soul.
These messages can come in at random, or a skilled clairaudient can tap into this ability and communicate with these voices at will.
Clairsentience is the ability to feel. This is an ability where the person is able to feel the emotions of others.
In some instances, they can feel the energy of the place that they enter, or the land they are on, or an object that they touch. Some clairsentience individuals are also able to feel the emotions of animals or spirits. This is an ability that many empaths have.

Claircognizance is the ability to know.
People with this ability are able to just know things about others, such as what type of family life they have or their experiences at school when they were younger. Some are able to harness this ability on a collective scale and know which direction society is moving in. Others are able to use it in everyday situations, such as knowing if your colleague is going to discuss something in particular with you or if you are uncertain about a decision you have to make.
It is the ability to tap into your intuition, and a skilled clairvoyant can do this at will.

The Difference Between Clairvoyance & Mediumship
Mediumship is another type of ability, but it stands on its own. It is the ability to communicate with the dead and with spirits.
It is entirely possible that a person can have clair abilities and be a medium, too.
However, mediumship is very much about communicating with those who have passed on and receiving messages from them or passing messages to them from those who are left behind.
Clairaudience is the ability to hear voices, and these voices can be deceased spirits, spirit guides, or other entities and elementals from the spirit world. It can even be voices from those who are living who are communicating on a telepathic level.
Mediumship, however, is exclusive to mediating communication between the living and the dead. It also harnesses different types of channeling, such as Ouija boards, trances, and seances, to communicate with the dead.

How to Develop Your Clairvoyant Abilities
Developing your intuition takes time and commitment, but it’s entirely worth it in the end! It is very common to have a combination of these different abilities. One may be stronger than others, or a couple may be stronger, but very often, when it comes to developing these intuitive gifts, several will develop at once.
You may have a dominant clairaudient ability at the moment, for example, but in time you may find your clairsentience is just as strong!
So how do you develop your clairvoyant and other clair abilities? Read on to find out!
Relaxing your mind and balancing your internal energies is essential to developing your clair abilities.
This is because psychic information needs to filter through your mind and body so that you can process the information in a way that is understandable to you.
Meditation helps calm and balance your mind so that you are able to connect with your intuition at a deeper level.

One of the most helpful – and fun – ways of developing clairvoyance and other abilities is through journaling.
Write down every time your intuition kicks in, and you were proven right. Write down whenever you have a feeling that came true or heard a voice that forewarned you of something, or when you just had a powerful sense of knowing about something.
Most likely, your journal will fill up more than you would have thought!
The great thing about journaling is that it allows you to monitor your progress and recognize how your intuition is developing. Reading back on it at the end of every week can help you analyze it from a more detached perspective, and this helps you to merge your analytical mind with your intuitive mind (always a good thing!).
3. Harness the Power of Crystals
One way of developing your psychic gifts is to use crystals.
If you are familiar with crystals, you will know they have a wonderful way of helping us one way or another. Different crystals help with different things.
Some of the best crystals to use for enhancing intuition are:
These crystals are particularly powerful and can help to enhance your clairvoyant and psychic gifts. Meditating with them, carrying them around in your pocket, and sleeping with them under your pillow are all good ways of harnessing their energy.

Am I clairvoyant? That was the original question. Now, having read through this article, you’ve probably realized you are one – or one of the other “clairs” or possibly all of them put together!
Maybe you’ve realized you’re a medium, too. Perhaps you know someone who has these same gifts but doesn’t know it or doesn’t know what to do with them.
Hopefully, this article has helped bring more clarity about your incredible superpower. Times are changing, and there is no doubt that our society is becoming more accepting of these gifts, embracing them as we go through this transition period of humanity.
These gifts exist within you for a reason. They are nothing to be ashamed of; they are something to be proud of. They are there to help you become the best of yourself and help others become the best of themselves.
When we are the best of ourselves, the world benefits, and we bring this world closer to the best version of itself too.
So embrace the clairvoyant within – its magic is waiting for you!
