Understanding Clairvoyant Psychic Readings
For centuries, clairvoyant psychic readings enjoyed a notoriety
usually reserved for circus performers and snake-oil salesmen. Psychic
clairvoyance was considered a sort of "underground" activity and
indeed, many practitioners could easily be found teaming up with
the other fringe elements of society. Psychic performers were a
mainstay of circus troupes and often may still be found on the side
of what could politely be referred to as the fraudulent arts.
But in the late 20th century, psychics began to enjoy something
of a media renaissance, largely due to their extremely close connection
to the New Age movement and its application of everyday mythologies
and quick-fix spirituality to people's lives. As New Age literature
grew along with its adherents, a merchandising boom came along,
carrying with it many other promoters of "naturalistic" approaches
to life -- in particular the leaders of the non-traditional naturalpathic
and holistic medicinal school -- who rushed to claim their place
in line for the growing business monolith.
But somewhere along the way to staggering success, as the 70s self-help
movement gave way to the 80s self-help-novel movement and the full-on
90s New Age ecumenical-tent movement, people seemed to have forgotten
both the original stories of human clairvoyance and today's all-important
questions of certification and validity. This is partly understandable,
since anything known as "New Age" usually includes a healthy mix
of faith along with reason, and it's also true that people who visit
clairvoyants must undergo a suspension of disbelief. But if you're
going to make a visit yourself, just what should you expect going
in? And who exactly are clairvoyant people?
Clairvoyance can be defined as a human ability to see beneath the
surface -- of a person, a situation, an intention or anything not
seen by the human eye or easily deduced by human logic. Originally
from the French, it can be translated as "clear sight" and is often
also referred to as a "second sight." Clairvoyants can also be said
to be "precognitive" or to possess a "sixth sense." Definitions
of clairvoyant powers vary greatly, and demonstrations are always
inconclusive. So while you may or may not believe in psychic ability,
it remains very important to know what psychic ability is not. You
must keep an eye out for frauds, and remember that you won't have
to travel far into the "psychic community" to find them. Psychic
con-men are everywhere and even have a rich history, dating back
to the ancient practices of the "travelling medicine man" in India,
which exists to this day.
So with so many psychic hucksters out there in storefronts, on television,
and at travelling exhibitions, there's a lot to choose from but
there will likely be very little to interest you until you get a
practitioner with whom you feel comfortable. So take your time,
never be afraid to ask a lot of questions, and if you're very careful,
you may very well find your own "clairvoyant prophet."
