Claircognizance. There are people in the world who KNOW, without logic or reason, certain things. They know that their husband shouldn’t take his normal route to work without turning on the news, and they know their son shouldn’t have that first strawberry without a positive allergy test.
Those people aren’t super heroes (although they may be hailed that when their husband dodges a 2 hour traffic jam on the bridge), they’re claircognizant!
Do you ever just know things? Yet, you have no idea HOW you know? If so, claircognizance (the gift of psychic knowing) might be one of your psychic abilities. :) Let’s take a look at the signs and find out!
7 Signs You Have the Gift of Claircognizance
1. You’ve just known things (that have turned out to be totally true)
My husband has a great example of claircognizance: He was driving on the highway with some co-workers. He says he didn’t know why, but all of a sudden he knew he had to tell everyone to buckle up.
Less than five minutes later, their vehicle was rear ended from behind by a car going 65 miles an hour. The seat my husband was sitting in broke in half. He didn’t know why everyone needed to buckle up – he just knew they had to do it immediately!
So if you’ve just known something that turned out to be extremely accurate (and maybe even lifesaving), that’s a surefire sign that you’re claircognizant!
2. You’ve woken up with an insightful answer to a problem
Have you ever been woken up out of a deep sleep with an, “OMG, DUH!!” answer? If so, stick around because claircognizance may be one of your psychic abilities!
Whether the problem was an inventory issue at work, or world peace, claircognizant people get a deep sense of inner knowing that solves problems in insightful ways… and they don’t always know why they know – but boy, the message is loud and clear!
3. Your “gut instincts” are always right
People with claircognizance get gut instincts that are always right on the money. They know not to trust that guy, get on that plane, or eat that sushi from 7-11 (ok, maybe that one is just self preservation). But the thing is, no matter how many times they have to say, “Look, I can’t explain it, I just know,” their instinct is always accurate.
4. Your friends use you as an “intention detector”
Because of their clear (and dead accurate) inner knowing, claircognizant people may ask their friends to pop in with their first dates, just to see if their intentions are what they say they are.
People with claircognizance may also be asked to sit in on business or school meetings, or estate planning sessions. Because of their track record, friends and family inherently trust their opinion over logic or reason.
5. You have ideas pop into your head out of the blue
This is one of the hallmarks of claircognizance. Claircognizant people don’t usually know WHEN their messages are going to come to them.
You may be relaxing in a bubble bath, re-watching your fav House of Cards episode, or in the car pickup line at school when a thought or idea suddenly pops into your head… My dinner plans are going to be canceled, I need to check on grandma, don’t let little Joey eat the strawberries off the strawberry plant…
So if you have ideas or thoughts (that turn out to be totally accurate) pop into your head seemingly out of the blue, claircognizance is probably one of your psychic abilities!
6. You always know when someone is lying or being insincere
Do your friends call you a human lie detector? People with claircognizance know when someone is lying or being fake (even when they have no proof!). It’s true. Claircognizant people have a nose for insincerity. They can spot it a mile away, wearing camouflage, at night!
Almost nothing gets past them, and they are totally accurate when it comes to, “Whoa, don’t trust that guy, I don’t think he just wants directions!”
7. You know what the outcome of a situation will be
If you’ve heard something seemingly horrible (like your friend has come down with an awful illness), but have been reassured by knowing the outcome (which turned out to be true), you might have claircognizance!
Claircognizant people have a deep inner knowing that surpasses logic and reason. Regardless of the situation, they can be completely convinced that a certain thing will happen (even if it’s the underdog).
They can be the ones in a hospital waiting room already relieved at a recovery that hasn’t happened yet… “I know mom is going to be okay!”
8. *Bonus Sign*
You receive intuitive messages in other ways. For some people, claircognizance is the way they primarily receive intuitive information (i.e. it’s their strongest psychic gift).
But you may receive psychic messages in other ways, too!
In addition to being claircognizant, you may also be:
- Clairaudient – the psychic ability to “hear” with their inner ear. (Read: signs that you’re clairaudient)
- Clairsentient – the gift of receiving intuitive messages via feelings, emotions, or physical sensations.
- Clairvoyant – the psychic ability to “see” images, symbols, and visions. (Read: signs that you’re clairvoyant)
If you have any of these other “clairs”, it’s likely that claircognizance is one of your gifts, too :)
So, what do you think? After reading this, do you know you’re a claircognizant? If so, how many signs did you have?
