When an individual is able, at will, to see in and investigate the inner worlds, and is the master of himself and what he is doing, he has developed positive,voluntary clairvoyance.This type of clairvoyance is developed through pure, helpful living, and the individual must be carefully trained in its use, in order that it may be completely effective and useful. When the sights of the inner worlds are presented to an individual beyond his control, and he sees what is given to him to see and can in no way control this sight, it is negative or involuntary clairvoyance. This type of clairvoyance is dangerous,laying the individual open to possession by discarnate entities and,if permitted to go far enough, presenting the possibility that his or her life, in this world and the next, will quite literally not be his or her own. Although both positive and negative clairvoyance exist, it is only with positive clairvoyance that an individual can accurately see and investigate the inner worlds and advance himself along the evolutionary path. Negative clairvoyance cannot be counted upon as a reliable tool of investigation, it often brings about the highly undesirable situation of personal control from an outside source,and it can cause evolutionary regression of the individual concerned.The development of negative clairvoyance is much easier because it is merely a revival of the mirror-like function possessed by man in the far past, by which the outside world was involuntarily reflected in him. This function was afterward retained by inbreeding. With present-day media, this power is intermittent, which explains why they can sometimes “see” and at other times, for no apparent reason,fail utterly to do so.
Therefore, the aspirant must feel not a wish to gratify an idle curiosity, but a holy and unselfish desire to help humanity. Until such a desire exists, no progress can be made in the attainment of positive clairvoyance. What It Involves Opening inherent clairvoyant gifts has to do with DNA activation of encoded cellular memories, activations of chakras, raising frequency, balancing energy bodies, self-esteem and the ability to trust in what is heard and seen, and the present emotional state(clearing issues that block/or influence the information you get). Expand your knowledge base in all areas of 3D. If you haven’t studied a language, it sounds like gibberish and its written symbols make no sense at all. The brain will have no way of interpreting the language into something you can understand. With the archetypes seen in meditation, dreams, etc.,the brain needs some sort of frame of reference in order to understand. Every reading is modified, and markedly colored, by own powers of interpretation, partly governed by the degree of technical knowledge concerning the character and partly by the level of mental and intuitional development. The neophyte must comprehend what he or she sees in the Desire World. Being clairvoyant does not mean that all truth is at once open to us and that we can “see all about” the higher worlds. The mere ability to see does not give us universal knowledge of that which we see. It requires much study and application to know about even that infinitesimal part of physical things that we handle in our daily lives. Hereditary and evolutionary backgrounds affect nature of interpretation.
Once clairvoyant gifts are opened, it is like any other exercise; it gets easier and easier. Some people mediate daily not for these messages but just to keep their sheath bodies in balance. They receive few images; but like to relax and feel at peace. When clairvoyant, solid objects are seen both inside and out. Space and solidity, as hindrances to observation, have ceased to exist.
In the Physical World, objects at least are dense, solid, and do not change in the twinkling of an eye. In the Desire World, they change in the most erratic manner. This is a source of endless confusion to the negative, involuntary clairvoyant, and even to the neophyte who enters under the guidance of a teacher. The teaching the neophyt receives, however, soon brings him or her to a point where he or she can perceive the Life that causes the change in Form and knows it for what it is, despite all possible and puzzling changes.
Clairvoyants must first be trained before their observations are of any real value, and the more proficient they become, the more modest they are about telling of what they see; and the more do they defer to the versions of others, knowing how much there is to learn and realizing how little the single investigator can grasp of all the details incident to his or her investigations. This accounts for the varied versions of the higher worlds, which are often an argument against the existence of these worlds. They contend that if these worlds exist, investigators must necessarily bring back identical descriptions. However, each has his or her own peculiar way of looking at things and can describe what he or she sees only from his or her particular point of view.
The account he or she gives may differ from those of others, yet all may be equally truthful from each individual observer’s viewpoint. Another important distinction to be made is that the power that enables one to perceive the objects in a world is not identical with the power of entering that world and functioning there. The voluntary clairvoyant, though able to distinguish the true from the false in the Desire World, is in practically the same relation to it as a prisoner behind bars. He can see it but cannot participate.However, further exercises given, furnish the aspirant with a vehicle in which he or she can function in the inner worlds in a perfectly self-conscious manner.Clairvoyance connects to the right side of the brain — the feminine,creative, and intuitive aspects. That is why physical sensations may be felt on the left side of the body when working clairvoyantly.Possession of such faculties does not indicate an unusual degree of spiritual development; nor is their manifestation dependent upon purity and unselfishness of character. They are merely evidences that one or more of the astral senses are partially able to act independent of their physical counterparts.Every cell in our bodies is being affected by the raising frequencies of the planet. We are being activated whether we want to be or not. Humanity is returning to an age of enlightenment in which we are all activating and we see the truth of our reality. At that time, psychic abilities become our total experience — the spiraling evolution of consciousness thought.
2. What Is Its History? There have been reports of clairvoyance and clairvoyant abilities throughout history in most cultures. Religious belief and custom have always profoundly affected the status of such powers, and their development along lower or higher lines has run parallel with, and has been a fundamental part of, the growth and influence of religion among the people. When the mysteries were still influencing the life of ancient Greece, a high type of clairvoyant was used in the sacred oracles. The priestess on the tripod was considered holy, and was cherished and protected from contamination of any sort. The temples of Aesculapius in Greece;where the art of healing was developed, and the most remarkable cures were performed; were a recognized part of the mysteries themselves.
Edgar D. Mitchell, in his book Psychic Exploration, cites many examples of precognition or clairvoyance as being a part of recorded history. He states that cases of precognition go back to the Greek civilization of 700 B.C. Battle strategies were decided by consulting the Delphic oracle. Proof that precognition was used in 400 B.C. is seen in the military victory of the naval chief,Themistacles. After consulting the Delphi oracle, he built 300 wooden ships and gained victory over the stronger and larger Persian ships by guiding them in the Straits of Salamis.Ancient Hindu religious texts list clairvoyance as one of the siddhis (an Indian term meaning skills) that can be acquired through appropriate meditation and personal discipline. However, a large number of accounts of clairvoyance are of the spontaneous variety among the general public. Many people report cases of “knowing” in one form or another when a loved one has died or was in danger before receiving notification through normal channels that such events have taken place.
During the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, psychics were accused of practicing witchcraft and were put to death by the Church.Clairvoyance was a phenomenon reported to have been observed in the behavior of somnambulists, people who were mesmerized and in a trance state (nowadays, equated with hypnosis, by most people) in the time of Franz Anton Mesmer. The earliest recorded report of somnambulistic clairvoyance is credited to Marquis de Puysegur, a follower of Mesmer. The incident took place in 1784 when he was treating a local dull-witted peasant named Victor Race. During treatment, Victor would go into trance and undergo a personality change, becoming fluent and articulate, and giving diagnosis and prescription for his own disease as well as for those of other patients, and forgetting everything when he came out of the trance state.
As late as 1837, spirits communicated the idea that spiritual communication would be a global experience. The first investigative group was formed in 1851 and was called the New York Circle. This group was formed to study the Fox sisters who had obtained information regarding a murder. The murder was discovered and the information provided by the Fox sisters was verified as being correct. However, the source of the Fox sisters’ information remains a mystery.The journal, Spirit World, says there were 100 mediums in New York and approximately 50 to 60 private spiritual circles in Philadelphia by the middle of 19th century. Spiritual movements existed in England, France, Germany, and Italy. Clairvoyance was one of the aspects studied by members of the Society for Psychical Research(SPR).
Psychics of many descriptions have claimed clairvoyant ability.The present cycle started with the rise of modern Spiritualism in the middle of last century. The movement spread very fast, first through America and later to some of the European countries. By this time, there had been a growing interest in cures affected by means of hypnotism. Combined with new possibilities that these experiments suggested, the spiritualistic movement was welcomed as a new revelation. Reputed clairvoyants developed into mediums, and “Spirit Circles” were formed in many famiies.By the last quarter of the 20th century, tremendous interest had been aroused in every sort of abnormal power. As more and more people from various sections of society got attracted to it and media focused attention on these groups, glamour had been cast over it.
Experimental research into clairvoyance has become more systematic.Perhaps the most well-known studies of clairvoyance in recent times was the US government-funded remote-viewing project at SRI/SAIC during the 1970s through the mid-1990s. Results of some parapsychological studies suggest that clairvoyance does exist (though that interpretation is disputed by critics). The studies also show that clairvoyance does not, in general, require another person to send the information being received, i.e., it can, to some extent, be distinguished from telepathy. Documented evidence by responsible and authoritative people, whose past has been unfolded before their eyes and who have been allowed a glimpse of the future, are seen in Psychic literature. They include famous personalities such as Abraham Lincoln, President of the USA during the American civil war, Lord Balfour, a former Prime Minister of Great Britain, Arthur Conan Doyle, the creator of Sherlock Holmes, and recently, the former President of the United States of America, Ronald Reagan, and the First lady Nancy Reagan.Throughout history, royalty, heads of state and politicians, as well as common people, have consulted a variety of seers in an effort to be forewarned of events to come, to seek advice, and to find answers to the problems that surround them. There have been some remarkable accounts of mishaps being avoided, advice which eventuated in an accidental event, of unexpected changes in a person’s life coming to pass and of changes in attitude leading to a more positive and beneficial outlook on life.Similarities and Differences between Clairvoyance and Witchcraft,
Telepathy, Telekinesis, and Precognition Explained Before explaining in detail what the differences and similarities between clairvoyance, witchcraft, telepathy, telekinesis, and precognition are, let us see what they are, in a nutshell:
Clairvoyance: The ability to perceive and understand objects and events beyond the range of ordinary perception, i.e., remote viewing.
Precognition: The ability to perceive and understand future events and states not yet experienced, i.e., seeing into the future.
Telekinesis (psychokinesis): The ability to influence objects by direct mental manipulation, i.e., to cause the movement and manipulation of physical objects by the power of your mind.
Telepathy (mind-reading): The ability to directly transfer your thoughts into the minds of others and to perceive the thoughts of others, i.e., the ability of perceiving and projecting thought.
Witchcraft: Witchcraft is a religion. It involves a system of belief and practice, and is, for many, a way of life. It is the power and ability to draw energy from the earth, concentrate it, and sent it out into the world.
The average person sees the world around them with only their physical eyes, but clairvoyance is a way of perceiving things beyond the scope of the eyesight. For example, the clairvoyant inner vision may see through walls, or witness events taking place at some distant location. Some psychics believe that clairvoyance happens to people who are able to get out of the physical body and “see” by means of the astral body. They shift their centre of consciousness outside of themselves.
“Clairvoyant” is a word now used to describe someone with second sight.
Telepathy, clairvoyance, and precognition have in common the ability of conveying knowledge across space or time. They are grouped together because in the fourth dimension, space–time is a field, and spatial translations are the same as temporal translations. The mechanism is an impression on the generalized preconscious that exists throughout space–time. Although all the
5 ESPs represent the power of mind as the centre point, witchcraft is entirely different in theory, practice, and nature from the rest.
