There are many different types of psychic ability and everyone has some kind of psychic ability within them already. I often liken it to musical ability, some people are born just naturally able to play the piano perfectly, others need to practise to hone their skill, and some people cannot play the piano no matter how hard they try but are gifted singers or drummers! It's all about finding your gift.
Main Psychic Ability Types
Many of the different types of psychic ability are an extension of our 5 senses:
Clairvoyant (clear vision) -- To reach into another vibrational frequency and visually perceive "within the mind's eye" something existing in that realm. A clairvoyant is one who receives extrasensory impressions, and symbols in the form of "inner sight" or mental images which are perceived without the aid of the physical eyes and beyond the limitations of ordinary time and space. These impressions are more easily perceived in an alpha state and during meditation, though many clairvoyants can obtain visual information regarding the past, present and future in a variety of environments.
Clairaudience (clear audio /hearing) -- To perceive sounds or words and extrasensory noise, from sources broadcast from spiritual or ethereal realm, in the form of "inner ear" or mental tone which are perceived without the aid of the physical ear and beyond the limitations of ordinary time and space. These tones and vibrations are more easily perceived in an alpha state and during meditation, though many clairaudients can obtain verbal and sound-related information regarding the past, present and future in a variety of environments. Most Channelers (also known as Mediums) work with both clairvoyance and clairaudience.
Clairsentience (clear sensation or feeling) - To perceive information by a "feeling" within the whole body, without any outer stimuli related to the feeling or information. (Also see clairempathy)
Clairolfaction (clear smelling) – To smell a fragrance/odor of substance or food which is not in one's surroundings. These odors are perceived without the aid of the physical nose and beyond the limitations of ordinary time and space.
Clairtangency (clear touching) -- More commonly known as psychometry. To handle an object or touch an area and perceive through the palms of one's hands information about the article or its owner or history that was not previously known by the clairtangent.
Clairgustance (clear tasting) -- To taste a substance without putting anything in one's mouth. It is claimed that those who possess this ability are able to perceive the essence of a substance from the spiritual or ethereal realms through taste.
Clairempathy (clear emotion) – An Empath is a person who can psychically tune in to the emotional experience of a person, place or animal. Clairempathy is a type of telepathy to sense or feel within one's self, the attitude, emotion or ailment of another person or entity. Empaths tune into the vibrations and "feel" the tones of the aura.
What else can you do?
There are other abilities that people can have as well. These can include but are not limited to:
Channelling - A person who allows his/her body and mind to be used as a mechanism for etheric world intelligence to bring psychic information or healing energy to others.
Channelling -- To allow an etheric world intelligence to enter one's mind and impress thoughts upon the consciousness to be spoken aloud, using one's voice or body to deliver the information or healing energy.
Telepathy - an ability to communicate with both humans and animals using psychic skills, it’s about sending and receiving information.
Empathy - known as ‘cursed gift’ it’s a skill that allows people to sense emotional and physical states of others through psychic means.
Precognition – knowing the future, knowing things or having visions or precognition dreams. Sometimes it’s about seeing the future with your eyes, sometimes it’s just about knowing that something will happen (premonition).
Retrognition - a form of psychometry perhaps, but still – something like precognition, but this time we’re perceiving the past, not the future.
Psychometry - more like a mixed set of skills: clairvoyance, clairaudience and clairsentience that allows one to pick up information via psychic means from physical objects like tables, pencils or whole buildings.
Remote Viewing – another mixed set of skills that allow to perceive the physical objects without the use of normal senses, just like psychometry utilize clair* skills with physical contact or proximity with the object, RV does not require any proximity or physical contact.
Aura view - a form of clairvoyance that allows people to see the aura literally (psychic energy field) around the person.
Astral Projection/ Lucid Projection - an ability to leave your physical body and explore the astral planes.
Automatic writing or Psychic Art - Writing or artwork produced without conscious thought
Bilocation or multilocation - Being in multiple places at the same time
Can I be more than one?
Absolutely! Often people can find they have a mix of different psychic abilities. I myself for example am Clairaudient, Clairvoyant and Clairsentient. These are my 'natural' ways of connecting to Spirit, however I am working on my Psychometry and Astral Projection skills!
