You have probably heard of “clairvoyance” and may have thought that’s what being psychic is.  What most people don’t know is that clairvoyance is just one way of connecting to spirit.  Clairvoyance is “clear seeing” pictures, symbols and words in your mind when you are picking up on intuitive information.  There are other clairs: clairaudient (clear-hearing) and clairsentient (clear knowing / feeling) amongst other types of clairs.

On the mediumship workshop I recently went on, our teacher showed me the difference between these three clairs.  I understood the difference between seeing a picture in my mind and hearing my name being called when there isn’t a human in sight, but I would always get confused about the clairsentient one.

When we go on mediumship development workshops and courses, it always amazes me how spirit is totally in the energy with regards to what is being taught, for which pupil and what they will learn, depending where they are on their learning journey.

On the Saturday, when it was my turn to take the stand and connect to spirit in front of my audience, it went badly.  I was getting mixed messages; unclear information and it was confusing.  My teacher stood up and linked into my energy to see who I had from the spirit world.  “You have three men here, that’s why you are getting confused”.  Wow.  I had no idea.  This was a perfect example of the clairs, as I could see one but was feeling another.

On Sunday, during practice, all of us were challenged with this very concept.  We all struggled in our own ways until we grasped what the teacher was trying to show us.

I was the last one up on Sunday, and finally, it all clicked into place and I did indeed make sense of everything.  I’m going to explain to you how I did that:

On standing up, I connected to a gentleman, who I could describe by what he looked like and the type of man he was, his personality, there were some other facts I knew about him too.  I could see him in my mind’s eye, it’s like a memory of someone you know, a bit sketchy, but there none the less.  My tutor could take him as her grandfather. Then I started to feel like someone else, a quieter, more gentle soul, so I described him, and my tutor could confirm that of her father.  So, I could see her grandad in my mind (clairvoyance) however, I could feel her father, like he was me (clairsentience).  With clairsentience, a tingling in your left leg would indicate that the person had problems with their leg or was missing a limb.  Pain in the head might indicate a brain tumor, I normally get tingling in my feet if the person had trouble with walking, I have even had the room spin and felt vomit in my throat when connecting to a spirit who had unfortunately choked on her vomit after being drunk.

Back to my reading, not only did I have the tutor’s father and grandfather (who both gave fantastic evidence, they even named her husband!), I suddenly saw a chap that looked remarkably like Einstein.  So, keeping grandad “over there” in my mind, and keeping her father with me (feeling), I then used clairvoyance again to look at this main and connect with him in more detail.  I told my tutor that this gentleman not only had mad hair like Einstein, he also had a mind like him too, I’m talking mega intelligence.  I said some other bits and then after the session, my tutor gave me some feedback.

She told me that the chap who looked like Einstein is actually still alive.  He has had dementia for many years, he is quite old and resides in a nursing home. Before his illness, my tutor and he were great friends.  With his grey, professor style, sticking up white hair, he was an inventor and created thousands of new ideas and inventions during this lifetime.  Not only was this remarkable, what is very interesting here is that I am not the only medium to pick up on this man, thinking that he had passed over.  My tutor explained that if a person is suffering from a degenerative brain disease and they don’t appear to be communicating to us here at all, they are actually in both dimensions, the spirit world and here, Earth.  This would also explain death bed experiences where the person dying starts to see and welcome old family and friends that have died.

It was an amazing weekend for me, I learned so much and I can’t wait to use these techniques as I continue on my mediumship journey.

Until next time,
