The word "clairvoyance" is made up of two root words that literally translate to "clear" and "vision." Clairvoyance is the ability to perceive events, objects, people or places in the mind's eye without reliance on the five senses. Often referred to as a "sixth sense," clairvoyance is a form of extra-sensory perception that utilizes the powers of intuition. Everyone possesses a certain level of psychic ability but not everyone has tapped into their full potential. Test the strength of your abilities and identify which type of clairvoyance you possess.
Test yourself for precognition. People with precognitive abilities are able to predict future events through visions or dreams. If you have ever had a dream or an intense vision that later came to pass, you possess precognitive ability. Refer to the resources section to take the on-line Zener card test. Parapsychologist J.B. Rhine created the test as a method for measuring precognitive ability. You will be asked to select one of five cards in hopes of predicting which card has been randomly selected.
Take a remote viewing test on-line to see if you possess clairvoyance. You will be given a target phrase or series of letters. Clear your mind and attempt to gain information about an image that you have never seen before by concentrating on the target phrase. Utilize pencil and paper to record any shapes or images that come to mind, then view the image to see if you were correct. Remote viewing is the ability to give details about an object, person or place that you have never encountered before.
Practice telepathic exercises with a friend. Telepathy is the ability to hear or depict another person's thoughts with your mind. Select a person that you are particularly close to, such as a spouse or family member. People that are close to one another have the greatest chance at success since they are naturally empathetic and intuitive towards one another. Have your partner clear his mind and think of a number from one to ten. If you can guess the number accurately with minimal tries then you posses telepathic ability.
Attempt to collect information from objects that belonged to deceased people to see if you are a medium. Medium-ship is the ability to channel information that is given to you from ghosts or spirits. Mediums gather images and thoughts from their mind's eye or receive visions upon touching objects that a ghost is attached to. Attempt to relay information to a friend about their deceased loved one by touching one of the spirit's personal items. Have your friend confirm the accuracy of your statements.
