Sometimes my logical mind just can’t come up with the answers, because the information is not provided in a linear way. I do believe that there is much more to life than logical/linear; there is a whole other information stream that is received in “downloads”: of images, feelings, and other things that words just don’t have the capacity to encompass. That’s where the Clairs come in. They provide all kinds of information when I’m open to receive in a non-linear way. Clair is actually French for “clear,” thus the Clairs provide clear information, each in their own way. Meet the Clairs… through my own little experience of each of these beauties.
Clairaudience – translates to Clear Audio – or very literally, clear hearing. I have experienced this two ways, one an external audible voice (I actually thought there was someone standing behind me the first time this happened), and the other clearly internal. Both have similar characteristics. Neither sounds like something I would say and both bring messages that I have no prior knowledge of. Sometimes the only accurate term is that I am hearing a message from the Divine, my guides, or my higher self. To someone witnessing this, it typically looks like I’m talking to myself, but only carrying on one side of the conversation.
Claircognizance – Clear Knowing – Sometimes I just know stuff. Can’t explain it; it’s just there and I’ve been experiencing this long enough to trust it.
Clairescence – Clear Smelling – I’ve only had this happen once that I was completely aware of. I got a very clear aroma of something that could not possibly be in my home. I still don’t know what it meant (My guides are laughing. They do that a lot. Apparently, I’m not quite open enough to know what it meant, but they know I’m capable so they’re letting me work it out.)
Clairgustance – Clear Eating (taste) – I think I’m grateful that I have no recollection of ever experiencing this. It might be handy, though. Wouldn’t it be nice to taste chocolate without the calories? Maybe some really good, rich, dark chocolate…
Clairsentience – Clear Feeling – This one is my sometimes creepy Clair, when the feelings are anything but pleasant. Thankfully, most of the information I get is positive in nature, however, it doesn’t always work that way. Sometimes I get pains in my body, and when I sit with them I know they are not me, and then I realize who they belong to. It served me well when I made my living as a Massage Therapist; I would call the client I was perceiving pain from, and they would say, “I was just thinking of you!” I learned not to tell them what was hurting, because some people are simply freaked out by this.
Clairvoyance – Clear Seeing – Sometimes this term is used as an umbrella for all the Clairs, but I do believe it is its own ability. I have had profound experiences with this, but one of them is just funny. When gas prices were very high, I looked at a sign and was surprised to see the price of gas had dropped by more than a dollar. I could see it very clearly; nonetheless, I blinked my eyes, shook my head, and looked again. The real sign was then visible. I called a friend, who proceeded to tell all his friends the price of gas was coming down. Two weeks later, it was lower than ‘the sign that wasn’t there.’
When I was younger, clairvoyance came in the form of dreams at night. The is something significantly different about ‘texture’ of my clairvoyant dreams. One strange episode involved dreaming about a man from the time I was three years old until I met him when I was 19. A very disturbing dream in which a friend died in an accident led me to attempt to block my clairvoyance. It wasn’t that the dream was so terrible; she didn’t take me seriously and I didn’t want to know if I couldn’t change a bad outcome.
