Psychic Phenomenon and History Clairvoyance Part 1

About the psychic phenomenon clairvoyance also known as ESP or astral projection, history and cases of the gift of second sight.




Clairvoyance is the ability to see an event or object by means other than eyesight or other known sensory channels. The authoritative quarterly Journal of Parapsychology calls it "extrasensory perception of objects or objective events." Clairvoyance differs from telepathy in that it seems to work without another person's mind acting as an intermediary.


Among the thousands of case histories in ESP reported to Dr. Louisa E. Rhine of the Institute of Parapsychology in Durham, N.C., is one that represents pure clairvoyance in an entirely commonplace setting. A woman put her rings on a shelf near the kitchen sink and later couldn't find them. As Dr. Rhine reports this case in her book Hidden Channels of the Mind, the woman wrote about her experience as follows:

"It was a warm day and remained warm into evening, so we decided to have a wiener roast outside. I got busy with preparations for that and forgot all about my rings. Later, after the children were in bed, I thought about my rings and went to get them. They were gone. I felt faint. My husband helped me look. We looked through all the garbage. I took everything off the shelf where I had put them. We even looked under the dining room and living room rugs. I swept every inch of the kitchen, and no rings. It was getting late by this time and my husband was tired, so he went to bed. He wanted me to stop looking and get some rest, but I told him I couldn't sleep until I found my rings.

"This doesn't seem possible, but it happened! I was standing at the kitchen sink, trying to hold back my tears, and suddenly something told me to look in the ice cube tray. I rushed to the refrigerator, pulled out the ice cube tray and there were my rings, frozen in a cube of ice. I was so happy I rushed back to tell my husband. We started talking it over and he remembered coming into the house in the dark and, without turning on the lights, he opened the refrigerator, pulled out the ice tray for ice and reached for some glasses into the cupboard where my rings were. Then he filled the ice tray with water again and put it back in the refrigerator. He had never replaced a tray of ice before or since. Just that one time he replaced the ice tray. He didn't know my rings were on that shelf. I remember at the time I received the message, or whatever it was, I had a funny sensation. What had made me look in that ice tray?"
