The Five Clairs

So, what is this about Clair-?

Well, Clair is an interesting subject for there is much ado about “her”. She has many senses and they are all inter-related to the Spiritual Self that is within each and every one of us. We can leave “her” within us, never to see the light of day, or we can bring “her” out in one way or another, or even bring her out in all ways we can think of. Having Clair living, or existing within you can become a frightening concept; however she is really not dangerous at all. So now I have listed below the different Clairs that I know. If you know of one I have missed out on, please feel free to email me to let me know.

Clairvoyance

As the Dictionary quotes: It is “seeing what is not usually seen or the supposed ability to see things beyond the range of normal human vision”.

This is probably the best known of all the Clairs. It is “To See” – into the future (as in precognition) or past (as in retrocognition), into the spiritual realm, to see the spirits themselves. The word itself  from the French language and means Clear (Clair) Seeing (or to see from “Voir”). A Clair Voyant may have other talents such as to see within the human body, or to see into closed areas such as boxes or closets. Many forms of divination are connected to Clair Voyance such as Psychometry and Scrying. For a medium, he / she will be able to see as though they were right there, experiencing the event, or time itself, or else will be able to see in “third person” as though they were (or are) on the side-lines, witnessing the event itself. A person with this gift is often referred to as a “seer”.

Clairaudience

As the Dictionary quotes: “In the field of parapsychology, Clairaudience [from late 17th century French Clair (clear) & audience (hearing)] is a form of extra-sensory perception wherein a person acquires information by paranormal auditory means”.

This is definitely the next best known of the Clairs and means “Clear Hearing”. Strangely enough it is probably the most common form of any of the Clairs that most people are familiar with. There are many people of all ages and walks of life who are familiar with “hearing voices” in their heads, or at the back of their minds. Whether it be nagging little ones telling them “not to do it” or “just go ahead, you’ll be OK!” or bigger, louder voices making a statement about someone they are looking at, at the moment. For a medium, he / she will be able to hear what is being said as though a Spirit is right beside them. Or else the words will come from within as though the Spirit is right inside them and in this case the medium will usually be saying the words ad verbatim, even without knowing what is being said at the time. There are times when we “hear” with our Spiritual ears, yet do not hear the actual word or verbalism which is being made, yet what we hear is softer and seemingly “inaudible”, or at such a pitch of tone that we are incapable of understanding it to be words, or even sounds. This is perhaps very much as an animal would “hear” an extremely high pitch sound and respond to it without thinking. When we are at a stage of simply responding, this may be called “automatic” writing / drawing / communication etc.

Clairsentience

As the Dictionary quotes: “In the field of parapsychology, clairsentience [From the French clair, “clear,” + sentience, “feeling,” ultimately derived from the Latin clarus, “clear,” + sentiens, derived from sentire, “to feel”] is a form of extra-sensory perception wherein a person acquires psychic knowledge primarily by means of feeling.”

This one is not as well known, though most people have it. It means Clear Sensing and is more familiarly talked about when people say “I feel something in the air” or “I get the feeling that it might rain” or even “I’ve got a hunch this one’s going to be a winner…” Call it a “hunch” or “gut instinct” or what ever else you can remember, it is all feeling and sensing. Doing some exercises in awareness san help to develop this “sense” so that you can ‘feel’ or ‘get the vibes’ from the energy you are ‘sensing’ and feeling around you. Psychometry is very much associated with this Clair as is photograph reading. Many “psychic” readers will use this sense in order to “read” the vibes off the person for whom they are doing a reading, whilst not even knowing what they are reading, it is more “sensing”.

Clairalience

As the Dictionary quotes: “In the field of parapsychology, Clairalience [presumably from late 17th century French Clair (clear) & Alience (smelling)] is a form of extra-sensory perception wherein a person acquires psychic knowledge primarily by means of smelling”.

How many times have you heard someone in a delirious state of mind say “I can smell fresh bread baking” or even when in a complete state of utter sanity…“I can smell the perfume of my grand mother she always used to wear”? Perhaps you too, have smelled something odd or unusual when you have entered a strange house or area you are not used to and have been told that someone passed away in that house not long ago. Or perhaps you have even smelt something akin to stale air that has been allowed to remain stagnant in a house which has not been purified or cleansed for some time. All of this is known as Clear Smelling. Presumably this is not quite as uncommon as you may have thought.

Clairambience

As the Dictionary Quotes: “In the field of parapsychology, Clairambience is defined as a form of extra-sensory perception that allegedly allows one to taste a substance without putting anything in one’s mouth. It is claimed that those who possess this ability are able to perceive the essence of a substance from the spiritual or ethereal realms through taste.”

This one of the Clairs means to have clear tasting. Whilst it happens rarely, it does so happen when a visitor arrives who may have had a penchant for instance for musk lollies, or peppermints, or rare T-bone steaks. Often a medium will be able to “taste” these same tastes and could even be so in synchronization with the visitor that he / she will seemingly “fill up” on the last meal upon which the visitor had.

Claircognizance

As the Dictionary Quotes: “In the field of parapsychology, Claircognizance is defined as a form of extra-sensory perception that allegedly allows one to acquire psychic knowledge itself without understanding how or why this knowledge comes to be”

It is perhaps one of the most common of all the Clairs in actual fact for many of us have said at one time – I don’t know how I know, I just know! This Clair is related to Clairsentience, although is much stronger than a mere hunch and more often than not is proven to be totally correct when the information is followed. I have always called these incidents in my life-time “my knowings”

Clair-comprehendré

This one is of my own and it means “clear – understanding” or “clear – realisations”. When I was younger I went through a Phase whereby I came to “realise” and understand more about The Universe as a whole without even thinking about The Universe. I called these incidents in my life-time “my realisations”. They often came without warning and usually would occur in a moment of complete unawareness to my surroundings as though I were in a trance, even though I was not “trance-like” and I would simply realise with much clarity why and how specific points about The Universe are the way that they are.

If you can come up with any other “Clairs” that you have experienced along the journey of your life, or know of any others which I have omitted, I welcome you to contact me with your own experience, definition, thoughts and the like. Just as we each have our physical senses, so too do we have our spiritual senses. We all possess the ability to use our spiritual senses as we do our physical, however some of us have strengths in these areas, whilst others have left them far behind. If anyone is interested in developing your strengths please email me for more details.

Mindfulness in Meditation

Take some quiet time for yourself. In the quietness you will begin to recognize yHorseshoe_Falls_Mt_Field_National_Parkourself again. We so easily lose ourselves in the daily shuffle of life. Mindfulness and awareness will allow you to participate in your life rather than only reacting to life. Through practicing mindfulness you can begin to enjoy the simple things in life that have been lost in the clutter. Meditation is the powerful antidote to many of the poisons in your life; it stills vast yearnings and inner-discontentments. Meditation provides a reprieve from the vicious swings of worry; a mind that continually wanders into darkness and grasps for unknowable futures. A moment of completeness; a moment of real — meditation does not reach — it only opens you to what is. As your hopes and desires disappear you emerge. Through meditation you begin to take form in your interior as a beautiful being; free from self-deception and fear, you will start to see and believe in your own beauty. As you submerge into your own realm of nothingness you feel you are being pulled into some great oneness; a mending of the fractures in your own consciousness. Nothing to conquer or control; no-one to quarrel with — the still mind is peaceful, and the still mind is free. Your quiet moments prepare you for the harsh scuffles and abrasions of life. Take some quiet time for yourself to center and to transcend the madness. Quietness is the most unpretentious preparation for a life of peaceful significance.

Chakra Workshop

THE CHAKRAS

The word ‘chakra’ is derived from the Sanskrit word meaning ‘wheel’. If we were able to see chakras (as many seers and psychics, in fact, do) we would observe a wheel of energy continuously revolving or rotating.

And each chakra rotates at a different speed.

One of the reasons that many people fall ill is because their chakras become out of alignment, they are ‘imbalanced’ or there are blockages, which restrict the free, flow of the body’s energy.

There are seven major chakras (and dozens of minor ones). For simplicity I intend to concentrate upon these seven chakras. They are as follows: –

  • First Chakra                 – base of the spine
  • Second Chakra             – sacral
  • Third Chakra                – solar plexus
  • Fourth Chakra             – heart
  • Fifth Chakra                 – throat
  • Sixth Chakra                – third eye (brow)
  • Seventh Chakra           – crown

These chakras all play an extremely active role in all our crystal healing treatments.

As already mentioned any ‘imbalances’ that exist within any chakra may have profound effects upon either our physical or physiological bodies. We are able to use our quartz crystals to re-balance all our chakric centres and once the chakra has been properly balanced then our body will gradually return to normality.

First Chakra – The first chakra is located at the bottom of the spine. This is where the kundalini is situated. This chakra is associated with the Colour red. It is a very important centre as it has so much effect upon the rest of the body. I find personally that I am able to release a great deal of the physical stress and tension of the nervous system by working on the base chakra with my quartz crystals.

Second Chakra – The second chakra is located within an area bounded by the spleen and sexual centre. This chakra is associated with the Colour orange. Usually people suffering   from sexual blockages need healing here.

Third Chakra – The third chakra is the solar plexus and is located just below the navel. This chakra is associated with the Colour yellow. There is often a great amount of physical energy and power within this chakra or emanating from it. This chakra is also the psychic store – house of mystical energy and is the energy centre used by materialisation mediums for producing ectoplasm and other psychic manifestations.

Fourth Chakra – The fourth chakra is the heart centre. It is located in an area in the centre of the chest, between the two nipples. The colours associated with this chakra are green and pink. I use the heart chakra to help people suffering from emotional traumas and problems in their relationships. I find that by using a piece of rose quartz I am able to help release their inner emotional tension and trauma.

Fifth Chakra – The fifth chakra is the throat centre. It is located in an area, which corresponds to the centre of the throat. The colours associated with this chakra are either blue or turquoise when people suffer from headaches (perhaps migraine) and tension within the neck and shoulder muscles I find that often the basic cause is that the throat chakra has become blocked.

Sixth Chakra – The sixth chakra is the third eye. This chakra is located between the two brows on the forehead. The Colour most associated with this chakra is purple. When helping people to develop their own spiritual intuition I find that amethyst, sodalite, lapis lazuli or Sugilite are ideal stones with which to work.

Seventh Chakra – The seventh chakra is the crown centre. This chakra is located on the top of the head. The Colour associated with this chakra is white. During any crystal healing session this chakra needs to be open. It is the chakra through which you obtain the highest understanding and the highest knowledge.

To balance the chakras I use the following technique. First I have my patient lying down on their back. I then place two quartz crystals on the third eye chakra, points facing downwards. Two quartz crystals I put on the palm, points upwards; two quartz crystals on the breast area, points upwards; and two quartz crystals placed on the top of the thighs, point upwards. If the patient lies quietly on his or her back for about 15 minutes, the chakras will quickly re-align themselves without much channelling needing to be done.

There are various layouts that can be used for each chakra also, when using crystals as a method of healing. I have outlined these below and the way in which each crystal should be pointing. If your patient needs healing in any of the chakras, these layouts are suggested.

Base Chakra

Place four clear quartz crystals in alignment so that they form an outline of a square. Each crystal should be placed pointing outwardly from each corner. Then place four dark tourmaline crystals in between each of the quartz crystals so that they are pointing outward and are shown as North, South, and East & West. In the middle, place a red stone. This layout can be used both on and off the body. It can be placed to cover the whole area of the hips and base of spine. Or they can be place in between the legs close to the base of the spine. This layout is designed to help release the stress and encourage healing. It can support and enhance the natural functioning of this centre.

Sacral Charka

Here are two layouts which can be used with each other to release stress, blocks and trauma as well as detoxify the whole system. This layout will stimulate this chakra and can be placed on the lower abdomen area. The first is a downward pointing triangle made up of three clear stones such as quartz, or rutilated quartz. Below this triangle are another three stones which form a downward pointing arc, slightly wider than the triangle. In this one, you may choose three stones of moonstone, rose quartz, lapis lazuli, aquamarine or amethyst. 

Solar Plexus

This one will enhance energy flow throughout your body to enable your other chakras to be free-flowing. You may arrange the following stones on the upper abdomen between the lower edge of the ribcage near the diaphragm and the navel. Make an upward-pointing triangle of three citrine crystals (or gems) with points facing outward. In the centre of this triangle place one of the following: Tiger Eye; Ruby; Garnet; Jasper or Iron Pyrite. The stone you place here will determine the quality of energy being balanced. For instance, Garnet and Ruby will energise while Jasper and Pyrite will ground and aid the digestion. Tiger Eye will ground and encourage practical social skills. Surrounding these four stones, make another triangle, with three garnets pointing downwards.

Throat Chakra

The throat chakra is connected to the mind therefore it is important in all aspects of education, learning, understanding and knowledge. This one is to rebalance the throat chakra near the sternum. Close beneath this near the thymus gland, put a turquoise gem. Below this, on the breastbone, set a downward pointing clear quartz crystal. Finally on each side of the uppermost blue stone, place a crystal with double terminations of points at each end. (These can be any sort of stone as long as they are both the same type of stone)

Brow Chakra

This chakra is very sensitive and you must place stones with caution so as not to block the Third Eye. Place your layout for the Brow Chakra accordingly. In the centre of the forehead, place either a Herkimer Diamond or a Lapis Lazuli. On each side of it, set a small fluorite crystal of any colour. These should be positioned approximately at the centre of the eyebrows. Another fluorite goes right above the first central stone. An optional blue or violet fluorite can be added near the top of the head by the crown.

The Crown Chakra

For this chakra, I like to use quartz crystals myself. I use one centrally at the top of the crown, then one on each side of this one, all pointing upward and outward away from the crown. This directs the excess energy away from the crown, and thus away from the person. It is ideal to rid oneself of extra – static electricity as the clear quartz will neutralize and thus balance the crown chakra.

After you have completed each of these steps in clearing the chakras and find that your patient has well balance chakras, you may wish to further enhance the session by first using a quartz wand side on so as to “pick up” any excess energy – good, bad or indifferent that is unbalanced. A quick “wipe-over” with a rose quartz or aventurine wand will also give the finishing touches whilst clearing the person’s aura also.

For those of you are attuned to Reiki/Seichim energies you can now use your special healing powers to further the healing experience.

Good luck and Bright Blessings

Cooling down Meditation

Silver Falls Mt Wellington Tasmania small

Are you feeling a tad hot this summer in the southern hemisphere? In Oz, we are experiencing frightening bush fires throughout most of our states, all thanks to the wonderful floods we had in the previous 2 years that brought about abundant undergrowth.So now it is time to chill out, cool down, and get on with another day and somehow try to cope with the heat.

If you are busy, these meditations may be just right for you. When you become more adept at visualising and using your senses, you will find it easy to just think – cool and be cool.

For now, sit down, allow yourself at least five minutes of undisturbed time. Close your eyes and take a deep breath. In through your nose and out through your mouth – allow your abdomen to expand as you breathe in and then deflate when you breathe out. Take another deep breath in, then hold to the count of 5 and release slowly out.

Now that you are relaxed, visualise yourself in a quiet, darkened space. Then see yourself walking toward a green forest. Walk slowly, and feel the coolness of the forest as you enter it. Look around you and see the moist mosses on the trees. As you walk deeper into the rain forest, you will begin to feel the spray of the water fall you can hear in the distance. Continue walking through, feeling cooler as you walk closer to the water fall. Finally you reach this body of water gushing down with a roar. Listen to the sound of this roar and know it as your waterfall.

Follow the gushing water and see that it is landing in a cool serene pond of clear water. When you look through you can see how deep it is and how clear it is of debris, for the forest has been looking after it for millenia. Edge a bit closer to the pool, and feel yourself feeling nice and cool. Now, see yourself walking right up to the edge of the pool and then dive into the clear, cool fresh spring water. Swim up toward the gushing water fall and feel the force of that water as it crashes around you. You are always safe in your own pool. In this pool. Swim here for a little while and feel yourself becoming refreshed and revitalised by the coolness of the water, and the spray of the mountain mist.

When you are feeling cooler, you can walk out of the pool, and find a sunny spot to allow the filtered sunshine to dry you. Take a deep breath in and out once more and open your eyes. You should begin to feel much cooler now.

Bright Blessings [subscribe2]

Cards Chosen: Osho Zen

Card: The Master

His Disciples gather around him to soak up his presence and to be inspired..
His Disciples gather around him to soak up his presence and to be inspired..

Official Meaning: The Master in Zen is not a master of others, yet a master of himself. His every gesture and his every word reflect his enlightened state. He has no private goals, no desire that anything should be other than the way it is. His disciples gather around him, not to follow him, rather to soak up his presence and be inspired by his example. In his eyes, they find their own truth reflected, and in his silence, they fall more easily into the silence of their own beings.
The Master welcomes his disciples, not because he wants to lead them, but because he has so much to share. Together they create an energy field that supports each unique individual in finding his or her own light.
Beyond Mind, there is an awareness that is intrinsic, that is not given to you by the outside, and is not an idea – and there is no experiment up to now that has found any center in the brain which corresponds awareness. The whole work of meditation is to make you aware of all that is “mind” and dis-identify yourself from it. That very separation is the greatest revolution that can happen to man.

Intuitive Meaning: The Master is full of wisdom, truth, and true meaning – or knowledge. He is the very epitome of the ancient, tranquility that does not need to impress, yet inspires the consciousness to profound understanding of The Universe and all that there is. He is simply here – in the NOW that is. He is all knowing, all seeing, and all hearing. It is the little nuances that happen in life which are nurtured and grown within him, to inspire to others their aspirations of life. I am The Master.
