Can Clairvoyants Really See Spirits?
Although clairvoyance is one of the psychic talents that most people are aware of, having been sensationalised in films and TV, it is actually one of the least common abilities. Clairvoyants have the ability to see spirits or ghosts, tuning into psychic wavelengths that most of us are not able to. But are they actually able to see spirits or are these just symptoms of an overactive imagination?
Psychic Residue or Sentient Spirit?
There is a firm belief among scientists that all matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration. It is possible that, when a person dies, their essence or spirit is released to vibrate at a frequency that is usually invisible to the naked eye. Clairvoyants have the ability to discern these vibrations, usually in the form of figures, shapes or even auras. However, whether they are just seeing a strong psychic residue or a sentient spirit is another question.
Many clairvoyants believe that they are seeing echoes of the past; that these are not ghosts but, rather, psychic recordings of a person’s essence. Many of these clairvoyants claim that they only see these apparitions in their mind’s eye; that it is a psychic suggestion of someone’s previous existence, rather than a traditional ghost. However, other clairvoyants claim that they are able to see figures with their physical eyes and, often, are able to interact with them, passing on messages or discerning their intent.
Many of us have had strange experiences that are often hard to explain; knowing who is on the telephone before you answer, déjà vu and dreaming things that later become real are some of the most common. Many of us have also had experiences in which rooms have felt ‘wrong’ or we have felt that we are being watched, even though there is no-one there. We are all born with psychic abilities, but most of us forget how to use them or consciously repress them.
Clairvoyants are those who have learned to attune their abilities to such a degree that they are able to discern things that the rest of us cannot. True clairvoyants do have the ability to see spirits. However, there are plenty of charlatans out there who make the same claim but, in fact, do not.
