Perception happens when situations make a pattern to which we respond, we say that we perceive. Thus certain light waves which stimulate our eyes may be perceived as an object we called a book. Certain sound waves which stimulate our eardrum are perceived as melody. From a great complexity of situations, we may perceive that a friend is hurt by something we have said.

Our sensations may differ from those of another person because, to mention only three, our seeing apparatus or hearing apparatus or smelling apparatus is more acute or less acute than his. More pronounced is the difference in our perceptions from those of a friend; for our individual experiences may influence our perceptions very much. Thus one person might perceive the same situation to be rather favourable. Yet the actual facts might be that the situation would have little effect on either of them.

B. Clairvoyance. Perception or objects on events that do not provide a stimulus to the known senses (for example, identifying a concealed playing card whose identity is unknown to any one).

C. Precognition. Perception of a future event that could be anticipated through any known identical inertial process (for example, predicting that a particular number were come up on the next show throw of a pair of dice).

Clairvoyance, a faculty of seeing, or becoming aware of, things not at the time visible to the eye. This phenomenon, often called second sight, it is not common, but many well- established instances are on record. It usually takes the form of a person suddenly seeing something happening at a distance; but there have been cases where the clairvoyant, when blindfolded or in total darkness, was able to describe pictures or the color of objects placed in the hand, or to read the contents of a closed book.

Types of Clairvoyance

A. Clairaudience

“Clairaudience” is a term sometimes used to indicate Astral Hearing. Some writers on this subject treat “clairvoyance” as a separate class of phenomena. But we fail to see the distinction they make. It, of course, employs a different astral senses functioning on the astral...
