Receiving Psychic Impressions

In order to seriously enhance your psychic abilities you must determine the most powerful and efficient way you receive those impressions. As everyone has their own dominant mode of getting Psychic information you must find out your preferred sixth-sense mode.

According to the modern theory of Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) most people have a preferred sensory mode – ways we like preferentially like to gather, store and recall information. There are three principal modes: visual, auditory and kinesthetic.

You can tell your preferred sensory mode in a number of ways and the simplest is by simply noticing what kind of words a person likes to use when they describe something.

A person has a visual preference if they say something like “I see what you mean”, or “I can picture myself in that situation”. The words “see” and “picture” have visual elements. People with a visual preference like bright colors. They think in visual images.

A person with an auditory preference may say something like “I hear what you’re saying”, or “I understand you loud and clear”. The words “hear” and “loud” have auditory elements. People with an auditory preference tend to be able to speak and articulate themselves very well. They listen very closely to what you say. They also tend to read out aloud.

Some people have a kinesthetic preference. Kinesthetic refers to feelings, actions, sensations and movement. Thus, a person has a kinesthetic preference when they use phrases like “I feel for you” or “Let’s touch base tomorrow”. The words “feel” and “touch” have kinesthetic elements. People with a kinesthetic preference like to touch people and objects and enjoy luxury and have strong emotional responses.

In the same way that people have a sensory preference, psychics also have an extra-sensory preference or dominant psychic mode. Your preferred sensory mode is usually related to your preferred extra-sensory mode. Psychics manifest these modes in a variety of ways:


Clairvoyance (Inner Vision)

The word Clairvoyance is made up of two words joined together which simply mean ‘clear-seeing’. Clairvoyance is the amazing ability to see an image relating to a person, object, location or event that is not physically present to the viewer. The image could relate to the past, present or future. For example, they may see an object which is connected to you in some way but which is related to something which happened in your past. They may see an object in the present but which may not be physically present – an object or person which is lost, for example. A Psychic whose dominant psychic mode is Clairvoyance is called a ‘Clairvoyant’ or ‘a Seer’. The Clairvoyant ‘sees’ these psychic images in their mind’s eye, rather than with their physical eyes. A vision impaired person can still be Clairvoyant! Some Clairvoyants can walk around once their eyes have been bandaged closed as easily as a person with their eyes wide open.

A Clairvoyant may see images by looking into a crystal ball or by looking at Tarot card images. Different Clairvoyants see the images in slightly different ways. Sometimes the images appear as vivid daydreams instead. The images are usually literal but sometimes they are symbolic, and need to be interpreted by either the Clairvoyant or the client. Clairvoyance may be distinguished from the visual hallucinations (experienced by people with some mental conditions) when the visions reveal accurate information that the Clairvoyant would not or should not know.

Do you see visions in your mind’s eye?


Clairaudience (Inner Voice)

As with Clairvoyance, Clairaudience simply means ‘clear-hearing’. It is the special ability of hearing sounds that are not physically interacting with the ears of the hearer. It can refer to hearing either sounds or voices. These voices can be the Psychic’s own ‘inner voice’ or they may be the sound of people’s voices. These sounds are usually heard through the ‘inner ear’ rather than through the physical ear.

Now we have all heard of people who have some kind of mental problem who ‘hear voices in their heads’, but this is a known medical condition and nothing related to Clairaudience. Again, a Psychic who is Clairaudient hears sounds or voices which reveal accurate information that the Clairaudient would not or should not know.

Do you hear sounds and voices in your mind’s ear?


Clairsentience (Inner Sensing)

Clairsentience is the special ‘clear-sensing’ ability to sense the feelings and emotions of other people, whether those people are physically present or not. ‘Psychometry’ is a sub-set of Clairsentience where the Psychic is able to obtain information about an individual by merely touching or holding an object that belongs (or belonged) to that person. For example, a piece of jewellery may be held by the Psychometrist and they can tell you about the wearers life, problems, feelings and opportunities.
Do you get sensations of other peoples feelings and emotions?


Claircognizance (Inner Knowing)

Claircognizance is the special ability of obtaining information by just becoming aware of it and ‘knowing’. It is the amazing ability to know something without knowing how or why you know it. Some people describe this as a strong intuition, a hunch or a gut instinct.
Most non-psychics are able to understand and relate to Claircognizance more easily than any of the other psychic modes.
Do you ever just know things without knowing how or why you know them?
Of course, some people have multiple psychic modes. This is truly a gift, but this ability can be acquired through training and constant practice.


How to determine your dominant Psychic mode

Read through the following paragraph a few times to memorize the scene. Or listen to the recording (press the play button) or have someone read it out for you.

Close your eyes. Take a deep breath. Relax fully. I want you to imagine yourself on a tropical island. See yourself there. See yourself lying on the beach. See yourself lying on a dry towel. There are palm trees all around you. Get up and walk barefooted to the water’s edge. Feel the texture of the hot dry sand for several steps and then the cool, wet sand for a few more steps. Feel the hot sun warming you. Hear the waves gently breaking on the sand. Spend a minute listening to the waves while looking at the Palm trees. Most of the waves are gentle, but some are big waves that hit the sand with force. Listen closely to the waves. Listen a little more. Hear the seagulls’ cries above you. Look up and see some seagulls flying above you. Open your eyes.

Answer the following questions after doing this exercise.

1. Could you see yourself lying on the beach?
What were you wearing?
What colour was your towel?
What colour was the sand?
How many palm trees did you see?
How many seagulls where flying above you?

Clear visual images indicate that your dominant mode is Clairvoyance.

2. Could you hear the waves breaking on the beach?
How many gentle waves did you hear?
How many big waves did you hear?
Could you hear the seagulls’ cries above you?
How many seagull cries did you hear?

Clear auditory sounds indicate that your dominant mode is Clairaudience.

3. Could you feel the sand underneath your feet?
How many steps did you take on the hot sand?
How many steps did you take on the wet sand?
Could you feel the hot sun shining down on you?
On what parts of your body was the sun directly shining upon? Your head? Face? Back? Left shoulder? Right shoulder?

Clear sensory impressions indicate that your dominant mode is Clairsentience.

4. Answer the following questions as quickly as you can.
What is the name of this island?
Where is this island located?
How did you get here?
Who else is with you?
Someone is casually watching you. Who is it? Describe this person in detail.

Fast and decisive answers to these questions indicate that your dominant psychic mode is Claircognizance.

Well, that is your first step in discovering your preferred psychic mode. As I said, you may develop other modes as you progress and you are not limited to only one mode. If you have not completed the exercise yet I encourage you to go back and try – you will gain an insight into how your brain prefers to handle information, if nothing else!

If you have completed the exercise – great! You have taken the first part of your quest for psychic knowledge. If you want you can develop this further and make up other scenes to act as confirmation. See how deeply you can get information about the scene – how sharp you can make the pictures; how faint a sound you can detect; what sensitivity of touch you can feel and so on.
