Clairvoyance



'Clairvoyance'

We all know that clairvoyance is the ability to see the future, ESP if you will…there are different ways that these ‘senses’ make their feeling known to those who have the ability of clairvoyance…



Clairsentience (feeling/touching)



Clairsentience is a form of ESP where a person acquires their psychic knowledge primarily by feeling.



Clairaudience (hearing/listening)



This is a form of extra-sensory perception wherein a person acquires information by paranormal auditory means.



Clairolfactus (smelling)



This occurs when a person accesses a spiritual or mediumistic ability of knowledge through the physical sense of smell.



Claircognizance (knowing)



This is a form of ESP wherein a person acquires psychic knowledge primarily by means of having some form of intrinsic knowledge. It is the ability to know something without a physical explanation why a person knows it…perhaps the most widely known form of ESP.



Clairgustance (tasting)



This is the ability to taste a substance without putting the substance or for that matter anything in one's mouth. It is claimed by those who possess this ability that they are able to perceive the essence of a substance from the spiritual or ethereal realms through taste.

Samadhi



Samadhi can be described as making the mind still or what is often called spiritual absorption…that is, the mind is quiet…almost like one has entered a spiritual trance…it has been described as when someone sits down to meditate, remaining awake and alert…and then gets up thinking that perhaps only a few moments have passed…when actually hours may have passed…these types of meditative sessions are rare and to set a goal for having one certainly is not practical…in the Hindu and Buddhist traditions, it is said that only the most enlightened beings are those who live in a constant state of Samadhi…for most of us, the practice of meditation is the most common way to experience a glimpse of Samadhi but even then it is elusive...if you are fortunate you may experience it even if it is only for a few seconds at a time…how do you know if you are in a state of Samadhi?...you don’t…because there is no part of your mind is left to maintain the awareness of anything…when you are in this state, neither internal nor external causes will distract you…you are in a state of deep stillness… tranquility envelops you as you meditate…the mind becomes blanketed with stillness like a mountain covered with a deep winter snow…until all thinking stops and you enter the state of pure stillness...of course, as soon as you start thinking that you are in a state of Samadhi, you have just departed from it…this is because a mind that is totally absorbed and does not comment on what is happening.

Presence



'Presence'

Let’s look at what is called presence…in our case it can be defined as the state or fact of existing…that is occurring, or being present in a place or thing…perhaps one who has crossed over into the spirit world still comforts us with their ‘presence’…it really can’t be defined, it is just a feeling that is present…it also is defined as a person or thing that exists or is present in a place but is not seen…we can be touched by a presence even if we cannot see what is ‘touching’ us…as in we could feel her presence even though she was far away…many of us no doubt has felt a ‘presence’ at one time or another…it may have been a presence of good, or perhaps it was a presence of evil…it can go both ways…can we prove such a thing truly exists? No, but can it be proven that it doesn’t occur? The answer to that is also no.
