The Five Clairs

There are five main abilities that we are often blessed with that all our other more specialized gifts stem from. These are referred to as Clairs. It means "clear" and will denote that these abilities allow us to sense things beyond and through the veils that separate the worlds of the physical and spiritual. Each one of these abilities is associated with a different chakra and, for the most part, this association does not vary much from person to person. These pages give general rules and assumptions about each Clair that in most cases will apply to anyone. However, everyone works and uses these Clairs differently. There are never any hard and fast rules.

In earlier years these abilities were often erroneously just referred to as clairvoyance or clairaudience and that all psychics were clairvoyant. When you search the web nowadays you can find plenty on the additional Clairs which, in our opinion, signifies the shifting of the Kingdoms and our coming Enlightenment. There are still places out there on the web and in books that erroneously classify the Clairs in the wrong way. They often only look at three or four Clairs and confuse the ones they do talk about. Our pages here are meant to properly clarify and explain the Clairs.

Many times the Clairs work in conjunction with each other. While we might be primarily one Clair, like clairvoyance, we also might have clairaudience to hear who it is we are seeing or communicating with. Sometimes these two (or more) Clairs are equally strong and it may seem that we are getting information one way, when we are receiving it in multiple ways. This is where a lot of confusion and incorrect associations originate. Someone may be equally clairsentient and clairempathic, but these are two separate gifts that became confused for each other. While this isn't wrong or bad to do, it does create a lot of confusion. So, here, we will describe the Clairs as they work alone. If two Clairs sound like what you do, it may mean that they work together to give you information.

Even if we have only one Clair gift we are naturally blessed with, that does not mean we cannot or should not develop our abilities in the other Clairs. Some have said that those that rely solely on one psychic ability or tool that they initially learned to work with are really failing to understand the others abilities, skills, and tools. In some ways, you also become too reliant on that method and gift when you could be expanding your awareness and knowledge by working with other Clairs.

Those on the other side of the spectrum might claim that you are only blessed with certain gifts in this life and are not meant to use others, thus it will be impossible to develop them and you will eventually have a much weaker main gift because you are not using it. While it may be very difficult for you to develop secondary and tertiary Clair abilities, I think it is in only rare circumstances that developing other abilities will weaken your main Clair. You can receive much deeper and richer messages and information if you use multiple Clairs and specialized abilities. You may have more difficulty with one type than another, but it just means that you need more work, not that you cannot and should not develop that ability.

Try developing all of these abilities at some point. They may never be as strong as your natural Clair gift, but it will often be a much better route in understanding the world around us if we learn to perceive in different ways. We begin to have much richer lives that way. Granted, you may not be able to develop certain abilities to the point you might like, but it never hurts to try. Do what works for you and go from there.

The five Clairs are clairvoyance, clairsentience, claircognizance, clairaudience, and clairempathy. While clairgustance and clairalience are also listed by some to be additional Clairs associated with smelling and tasting, these are usually very minor Clair senses and will not be discussed here.
