I share weekly pick-a-card readings on Instagram and in my Facebook group. I thought I’d extend some of those readings to this platform. This particular reading focuses on a unique quality that makes you shine! Keep reading to check out the results of this intuitive experiment.
This won’t be for everyone. If you feel a pull, scan the photo, close your eyes, take some deep breaths (exhale twice as long), and choose the card that lights you up. Photos and messages are below. This reading uses The Wild Unknown Archetype Deck by Kim Krans.
Claircognizance is a psychic sense defined as “clear knowing.” To someone who identifies as claircognizant, information about people and situations pop into their head, from an unseen and outside or interrupting source. Individuals who are claircognizant may receive correct hunches, but also “downloads” of pure information-in the form of words, phrases, sentences, or long blocks of data.
Claircognizance can be a tricky psychic sense to work with, as the information received is often correct, but there is nothing tangible in terms of proof, to back it up. For example, clairvoyants might see validating information in the form of faces, people, situations, stories, movies, photographs, or places to help give credence to their messages. Clairaudients may hear voices they can describe in terms of pitch, timbre, speech rhythm, dialects, and other audible mannerisms-as well as the actual message itself.
Claircognizants just know. This is the realm of pure information.
Claircognizance is the psychic sense defined as “clear knowing.” People who are claircognizant often have correct gut instincts about people and situations. They are logical and enjoy puzzling over solutions and tinkering with ideas. They know answers to questions without really thinking about them, and may know what others are about to say.
Claircognizance can be a tricky psychic sense to work with, because interrupting awareness pops into your head, without anything tangible or logical to back up why your scoop is correct.
Here are ten signs that you may be claircognizant:
Claircognizance is a spiritual sense defined as clear knowing.
Claircognizance can feel like your own thoughts, but they are interrupting and not necessarily from your own brain. You may pick up on words, phrases, sayings, sentences, and large blocks of information. These can be very intrusive, or it can feel like a thread you need to follow-like yanking a loose bit of yarn from a sweater and it starts to unravel. Words and information can just flow from you.
The sweet taste of a ripe mango. The hoot of an owl. Sunrise on a mountaintop. A massage. The scent of your grandma’s perfume.
We take in multitudes of sensory information from our environment via our five senses. Our five senses work in tandem with our brains, and messages in our cells, to react in pleasure or pain to stimuli around us. This biological system that helps keep us safe from threats by gathering information from the world around us, also serves to keep us grounded in our bodily human escapades, and combined with our cognition, provides us with a gamut of experiences that enrich our human lives.
The Other Side of the Mirror
We have spirit senses that mirror the earthly and bodily senses too. These senses are often referred to in new age terminology as “clairs,” from the french word, clair or “clear.” Like our five senses, they help us make meaning of stimuli; they can be used to keep us safe and grounded, allow us to meaningfully connect with others, and they help to enrich our daily human adventures.
Many folks may recognize some of these terms, either from pop culture as plot devices in movies, TV shows, or novels, from friends or family- or perhaps from their own psychic exploration.
