Claircognizance is associated with crown chakra. It means a clear knowing. If you find yourself just knowing what someone is going to say before they say it, you receive messages in your mind, or you often know the outcome of a situation before it happens, you may be claircognizant. Though is one of the hardest claires to trust, when you do learn to trust your claircognizance, it is extremely powerful.
Some people become nervous when they are learning to trust their claircognizance because they are worried the information they are getting is just their own thoughts. However, with practice you can become quite adept at telling the difference between your own thoughts and information you gathered through claircognizance. Claircognizance is instantaneous where as your thoughts develop an idea by taking in what you see.
Using several claires at the same time during readings allows me to bring through detailed messages, personalities and evidential information. All of these put together gives you a sense of trust that the reading is authentic and can be trusted. In previous blogs on claires, I discussed when Spirit steps toward me in a reading, they will start instantly giving me information. They will use clairsentience to give me a “feel” for their personality and start dropping symbols, signs and images in my mind’s eye (clairvoyance). They try to give symbols the sitter will instantly recognize as associated with them. In addition to feelings and images, they will download information. I do control this aspect of the reading some and do not allow big downloads until we have identified who I am communicating with.
If you ever have had a reading with me, it is extremely likely you heard me say “Just a second, (insert the name of the spirit) just downloaded a book”. This means the Spirit has just claircognizantly given me a lot of information which I then turn around and tell you. Most of the time when I tell you the information, I have no idea what the spirit is referencing, but the sitter does and that is what matters. I was out with some friend’s the other day and one of my friends said to a newcomer to the group, “If you have a reading with Christy you always know she will keep it to herself because she won’t remember it anyway”. It is true because I’m not “thinking” the information, I’m just relaying it.
Claircognizance can be strengthened by working with your crown chakra. Meditation is key to opening and activating your crown chakra. Whether you choose a meditation that is guided or you prefer to sit in silence, even ten minutes a day will be helpful. If you do not have ten minutes, start with what you have. The important thing is to take a step in the correct direction.
Another way to strengthen your claircognizance is through automatic writing. Try clearing your mind with a blank page and pen in hand and see what you feel compelled to write. This can also work by opening blank document on your computer. Open the blank document and see what you start typing. I’m going to let everyone in on a secret – I’m terrible at this, but my claircognizance rocks so if you are not good at this, do not let it be a barometer for your ability.
If you enjoy working with crystal grab some Clear Quartz, Amethyst, Danburite or Sugilite. Theses all help open and activate your crown chakra. Embrace your claircognizant ability!
