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.  Claircognizance also relates to your 7th chakra (crown chakra) and also your solar plexus chakra (3rd 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.

  1. Hello !!!
    After reading this page.. I believe mine is claircognizance.
    I don´t know how but I just know the songs that are about to play on the radio.. I start signing those song for example at 9:00 am and by 10 am I hear them on the radio. That’s like the usual daily thing. But the most intense experiences seem to happen to me when I am going through stressful situations and after going to sleep. One of the most strangest things happened when I was going through a depressive phase. My mom had cancer and I failed one of the most important final exams at Uni. One day I just cried, I was exhausted, and really asked god for help, out loud, I remember clearly asking with all of my heart for something good to happen.. I went to sleep, and when I woke up I felt awesome!! I just felt like “in love” the whole day.. and I knew I was going to win a lottery prize. I just knew that was going to happen the next day and I actually talked about this to everyone, because I felt wondeful and in peace and “magical”. So I went and bought the ticket. And well.. it happened .. the next day I won a lottery prize 🙂 It wasnt about the money.. The amazing thing is that I clearly knew this would happen.
    Ok this is like my coolest story. But like I said, I have experienced this “knowing” many times.. I just wish I could handle it or work with it.

    Comments appeciated!

    Thanks so much 🙂

  2. I’ve always been aware of the fact that I possess clear knowing. I knew answers before teachers would ask, I knew when my mother had injured herself when she was hundreds of miles away. I knew when my mother would die as well as knowing that my sister was dying without anyone having to tell me. I knew immediately when I met people whether they were honest and kind as well as knowing if they were devious and untrustworthy. I knew I was going to be laid off from my job months before it happened. I felt that it was some kind of psychic ability but didn’t know what to call it. It was like someone suddenly whispering something in my ear and me being conscious of it. It often doesn’t make you the most popular person especially with a person that is the sneaky, devious back stabbing people you come across–I think they can see the fact that I know what they’re about in my eyes. I’m trying to look at this gift as just that, a gift and not a curse.
