Is it really possible for anyone to learn clairvoyance? To a certain extent, yes. To understand what we mean by this, we need to clarify what we mean by clairvoyance, and what we mean by being able to 'learn' it.

Part of the confusion comes from the fact that the term 'clairvoyance' has several different means, depending on who you ask. The most common definitions are remote viewing (being able to see things that are happening far away without the use of technology or the five human senses), or precognition (being able to see events happening in the future). At its most basic level, however, clairvoyance simply means being able to know information about a person, object, location, or event without using any of your five senses. Think of clairvoyance as a sixth sense.

True, some people do have extraordinary clairvoyant abilities, such as the ability to see, hear, feel, smell, or even taste something far away, or even to know things about the past or future that they couldnt possibly know through any other means. No one really know how this works. Science has not been able to document or explain these abilities. Although there are dozens of metaphysical explanations of these psychic abilities, no particular one has emerged as the dominant belief, and some explanations are even contradictory. One common element, however, seems to cut across all these different theories: people with extraordinary psychic abilities are simply born that way.

Can anyone learn to remote viewing or see the future? No. Can anyone learn to develop and hone their sixth sense? Yes.

The truth of the matter is that just about everyone has some measure of a sixth sense. This might come out as a hunch or a feeling that you have. If you have a bad feeling about something or if you realize that you instinctively trust someone, you'll discover that this that sixth sense. When you ignore it in favor of things like logic or emotion, however, you are going against it.

Science, to a certain degree, even acknowledges the existence and validity of hunches and instincts. Scientists claim, however, that there is nothing supernatural, paranormal, or psychic about this ability. Psychologists, for example, argue that this phenomenon is merely your subconscious mind picking up on little details, hints, and signals that your conscious mind is too busy to notice. Your subconscious mind then translates this information into emotions to help guide you"the proverbial 'feeling' mentioned earlier. Therefore, in order to develop your sixth sense, you have to learn to use and trust your subconscious mind.

Whether you believe in science or in the mystical existence of a sixth sense, you'll find that you can still take advantage of this concept. What you need to learn is that no matter what you believe, you can train your perception and that you can sharpen it a great deal. Just look at these three methods.

1. Improve Your Perception

The vast majority of people go through life so hyper-focused on the task at hand that we become oblivious to everything else around us. Yet all these tiny details hidden in plain sight around us is exactly what our subconscious mind picks up on and needs to form its instincts and hunches. If you can learn to increase your perception, to become more aware of the world around you in all of its detail, you'll being giving your subconscious mind more of the fuel it needs to power your clairvoyant sixth sense.

Remember that you are not going to be able to do this without practice, however. There are definitely things that you can do when you need to increase your perception. Just slow down to begin with. Relax, take deep breaths and try moving around more slowly. Take away any distractions that you might be using to entertain yourself. Take yourself for a drive and leave the radio off. This will make you a lot more aware of the world around you, whether it is simply of your car and your own heartbeat or the world around you and how you are moving in it.

A mini meditation session might be precisely what you need when you are thinking about clearing your head. Close your eyes, take a deep breath and make yourself relax. When your eyes open, you will be able to see a lot more with regards to the world around you. This can make a lot of difference .

Step 2: Meditation

Try to meditate at least 30 minutes a day. The idea behind meditation is to occupy and clear your conscious mind, and let your subconscious mind rise to the surface to do its work and communicate with your conscious mind People who meditate report feeling relaxed and refreshed when they are done.

However, finding the time to meditate and to make sure that you are going to be getting the results that you need can be difficult. Just when you have everything set up the way that you want it to be, you'll discover that you need to get up and do some cooking or that there is a call that you need to make. When you want to get out of the same cycle of thoughts that you have been, remember that you can use a focus and a mantra.

A focus is simply something that you can use to keep your sense working for you instead of against you. If you are sitting in silence, you might find that every sound or movement out of the corner of your eye makes you startle. Instead, put a candle in front of you and watch the light dance. The flickering will keep your eyes engaged while your brain can float away and think of other things.

Second, our conscious mind, our thoughts, never shuts down"we're always thinking about something. Rather than try to silence it, occupy and distract it with a mantra. A mantra is phrase, poem, or prayer that you repeat over and over again in your head just to occupy your mind. It can be anything"a prayer, a favorite poem, even song lyrics"just as long as you know it by heart and can recite it with much thought. Some people pray the rosary as they meditate"the endless string of memorized Hail Marys occupies their conscious mind perfectly.

3. Trust Your Instincts

Finally, remember that you need to believe in yourself and trust yourself. Don't doubt and don't second guess yourself. Don't say that your gut instincts must be wrong or that they are not important. Remember that the things that you feel, you feel them for a reason. What is your subconscious mind trying to tell you? Don't let this message get left in the dark as you try to move forward.

At first, this may be difficult. Over time, however, the more you listen to and trust your instincts, the more confidence you will gain in them. Your clairvoyant sixth sense will grow stronger, and it will be easier for you to trust it.
