Metaphysical Senses: What is Claircognizance?

Claircognizance (clear knowing) is a metaphysical sense where you know something to be correct but may be unable to back up your statement with fact or how you came into that information.

Claircognizance (clear knowing) is one of the four metaphysical senses, the others being clairvoyant (clear seeing), clairaudient (clear hearing), and clairsentient (clear feeling). It is one of your four metaphysical senses in addition to your five physical senses.

How do You Know What You Know?

Do pieces of information just randomly pop into your head that you know are correct? You are using claircognizance (clear thinking). It can come in the form of predictions or premonitions, a feeling of certainty or correctness. You may have knowledge of certain places, events, situations, or people without having received the information in a traditional manner. It may come across as a sense of foreboding or deja vu.

It is the ability to recognize receiving sudden insights and understanding regarding a question or situation in your life.  It relates to your 3rd eye or crown chakra.

Claircognizance means clear knowing of something that may have happened in the past, present, or future about another. Many times you will just “know” the answer, but will be unable to back up your statement with fact or how you came into that information.

I believe that many people have this ability, but much of the information can go without validation. Some of the things you may “know” can cause upset, confusion, and stress in others. They may be unreceptive to validating your “knowing” if you fail to have documented proof of what you are sharing.

Examples of Claircognizance

In many cases, this “knowing” may go against everything others tell you about a situation. It can certainly be isolating when you are the only one who is saying different and the general consensus says the total opposite.

Do you finish other people’s sentences because you know the answer even before they finish the thought?

Do you find yourself knowing immediately if someone is lying to you, even though you have nothing concrete to back up your thought?

How to Develop Claircognizance

Try using automatic writing to connect with your guides and receive answers to your questions.

Meditation also helps gain clear knowing because inner guidance comes through when you quiet the mind.
