It can be difficult to know what the differences are between the abilities people have in the psychic world. From precognition to remote viewing, astral projection to dowsing, the range of psychic abilities is vast and covers a wide range of skills and talents.
What one psychic may be able to do doesn’t mean another will be the same. Most psychics, although born with an innate ability, still have to spend years honing their skills and talents so they are used in the correct way. It is worth bearing in mind when you are choosing a psychic that the more experience they have in their field the more accurate their readings will probably be.
Two of the most common abilities that relate to the psychic world are telepathy and clairvoyance but do we really know what these mean and what the difference is between them?
The key difference between the two is that with clairvoyance, the information gained from the clairvoyant is directly from an external source whereas with telepathy it is transferred from the mind of one individual to another, often in the case of a reading, from the receiver to the psychic.
Clairvoyance means ‘seeing’ and is one facet of Clairsensing, the other is Clairaudience which means hearing. One individual may have the talent of clairvoyance but not clairaudience. In the realms of Clairsensing there are other abilities. Clairsentience is the ability of feeling and touching, Clairalience is the ability of smelling, Claircognizance is the ability of knowing and Clairgustance is the ability to taste. Clairvoyance is by far the most commonly used ability in pyshic readings than the lesser known clairsensings although some Psychics may use a mixture of a few if they have the ability.
Telepathy, whilst categorized similarly to clairvoyance, is the ability to transfer information, whether that is thoughts or feelings, between individuals by means other than the five classic senses most of us are born with. A successful Telepath would be able to read other thoughts and mental contents through the use of paranormal ability.
Like Clairensing, Telepathy can take many different forms, the most notable being Latent Telepathy and Precognitive Telepathy.
