Claircognizance is French for ‘clear knowing.’ That means you got some information or an answer, but you have no idea why you know it or how you found the answer. This ability is usually blended with one of the other psychic abilities like clairaudience or clairvoyance. If you wanted an example of someone who has claircognizance, I’d say it’s Fox Mulder from The X-Files tv series. He often received information from out-of-the-blue.
Let’s talk about claircognizance some more and how you can use it on a ghost hunt.
How Claircognizance Happens in Daily Life
Have you ever been driving when you had an urge to take another route? That’s claircognizance.
Have you ever been going out for a trip and you felt an urge to bring something along with you? That’s claircognizance.
Have you ever taken a test and the answers to questions just flowed into your brain? That’s claircognizance.
Claircognizance takes many forms, but there’s one way to know it’s psychic knowing: There are no emotions attached to it. It’s just an answer, an urge, or some facts put in your head. You don’t have anything like sadness, excitement, anger or anxiety with it.
How Does Claircognizance Work
Well, there are 2 ways claircognizance works. The first is the spirit model. The spirit simply sends the information, in great detail and great accuracy, with a person. Ghosts aren’t the most accurate beings because they spend a lot of energy trying to manifest. So be happy you get such good information!
The second way is the information model. Data can be copied and pasted into someone’s mind like a computer network. Someone with this ability can , and will, be a sharing point between different information sources. To me, this doesn’t sound like a version a ghost would use. I think it would come from a higher source or spirit than a ghost.
How to Use Claircognizance on Ghost Hunts
I think the most practical way is to use automatic writing. During a hunt, you can sit down with a writing pad and pen and let the information come to you. Relax, clear your mind and ask a question. Let the pen move across the paper and words will come to you. They should answer your questions. Make sure you run EVP collection at this time. The 2 sources complement each other.
In my next post, I’ll write about clairgustance, psychic taste and smell.
