What is Clairvoyance? Is it nonsense? I feel clairvoyant, am I crazy? Are many people clairvoyant?
Si Vales, Valeo
It is true that we are all connected together, bonded permanently by an invisible thread that is our humanity. Each and every one of us is a piece of a puzzle connected through a missing link. A puzzle so huge and vast we cannot grasp the concept of The Supreme One Mind. We can, however, experience more of that One Mind through the pieces we are connected to. That may be a form of clairvoyance.
There are two schools of thought with regard to the human being relation to God. One school sees the individual as Supreme Sovereign Being, being self-aware, fully self-contained and alone. They call that “God.” That is the path of Thelema.
Other schools teach that “I” is an illusion of ego. That all of us are simply drops of water floating in clouds, waiting to return to a vast sea where one drop is indistinguishable from any other. In other words, we are fragments of the greater whole, and the greater whole is “God.”
Both schools lead to the same place. It is simply a matter of which paradigm works best for the person seeking to experience True Existence.
When an individual seeks and achieves that feeling of Sovereignty, of being self-contained, the illusion will eventually disappear until the individual realizes that he is simultaneously a God and a cell within God’s body. If it has worked, he will be able to hold both of those seemingly opposing thoughts in his mind and act accordingly. He will be a clairvoyant when those connections to his fellow human beings have been solidly established.
It works the same way, but in reverse, if we begin with the position that we are not individuals, that we are just pieces of this thing we call God. If we follow the meditation to its logical conclusion, and succeed in achieving Union with God, each individual will find himself a sovereign being, existing as a human being and as a God. He will be clairvoyant for the same reason the fellow above will – by realizing his fellowship with the rest of those parts that are “God.”
I consider clairvoyance within the context of being “divided for love’s sake, for the chance of union.”
Again, it depends on who you ask, but there is a lot of science that has been dedicated toward understanding our brains which may have discovered what it means to be clairvoyant. Please understand that I am both a skeptic and a magician, and as such I believe that the inexplicable is simply a natural occurrence which cannot yet be explained.
I believe clairvoyance to be a phenomena experienced by those who have a keen sense of observation and self knowledge. So keen, that they themselves do not know it or understand it. It is a function of their unconscious mind which has been developed beyond that of other people.
I hope I have made you think as much as your question did for me.
