Psychic knowing or claircognizance is a strong psychic sense that many people have.
It is where your guides, or perhaps even your higher self, simply makes a direct contact with your mind.
This psychic ability is very similar in many ways to intuition. There are a number of psychic senses, and often the lines are blurred between them.
What they have in common is that they are all about communicating with spirit. Yet these are two separate gifts, even though they are very closely linked.
Psychic knowing may be a quite strong communication, and this could be because spirit particularly wants you to have information that they need you to know, so that you can take action on it.
What Is Psychic Knowing? How Psychic Gifts Vary
The other psychic gifts are also communications from spirit, and many of you will have more than one operating simultaneously. At the beginning these gifts may operate one at a time, especially when important information is coming through from spirit.
Psychic knowing uses the sense of claircognizance. This direct contact from Spirit happens directly and immediately, and similar to psychic hearing, the information is implanted directly into the brain.
This is unlike the way most people receive intuition, through having an instinctual or gut feeling. Most of you would have heard about intuition and felt it in action, as it is quite strongly connected to clairsentience or psychic feeling.
Clairvoyance is the gift of seeing psychic visions. This is where you make contact with spirit, and you see psychically a message from spirit, like a vision in your mind.
Clairaudience is the gift of psychic hearing. You make contact with spirit and hear the message, using your actual hearing.
Working With The Crown Chakra
Psychic knowing comes into the brain directly from spirit and although it happens quickly it is actually following a specific path.
These thoughts, or spiritual energy, come down through the crown chakra into the nerve bundle in the center of the brain, and they are immediately available in your thoughts.
Labradorite Crystals, see image on left, are one of the more powerful stones for the higher chakras that will clear the energy there.
If you desire to develop this gift, use visualization.
Picture the energy flowing into the crown chakra from the higher transpersonal chakras, including from the soul star chakra.
To allow the psychic knowing to flow more easily, the stellar gateway above the crown chakra needs to be able to allow this flow.
One way to aid the process is to work with crystals that stimulate the soul star chakra and the crown chakra, so that these areas permit this flow. If you work on these chakras, you may find that the gift of claircognizance may develop during the process.
How To Achieve Your Purpose
To assist the development of this psychic gift, regular meditation is important and also very effective. Meditation helps you to learn ways to be psychic, as it works by changing your brain waves.
Two specific areas of the brain, the amygdala and the anterior cingulate cortex, are said to be connected with developing these abilities.
By using isochronic tones, you may activate these areas of the brain and you may find that your gifts develop more quickly, and more smoothly.
A stone that is very helpful to develop this gift is White Magnesite, see the image on the right. At the beginning you may not trust yourself or believe in this gift.
As you work with this new gift, your prophetic talents may begin to open up as well. Through this you may experience a deep awareness of the truth about many things that are happening in your daily life.
To develop your ability to channel your psychic knowing, an easy way to get started, is to begin to write in your journal every day.
If do any new things to aid your development, such as using a new crystal, record this in your journal. The insight that comes down through crown chakra, may be used to anticipate problems, if you take notice of the information that comes in.
