Claircognizant comes from two French words, roughly broken down into “clear knowing”. Claircognizance is the extra sensory or psychic ability to “sense” beyond the physical senses. Claircognizant psychics possess the gift of receiving clear impressions about things.
What does Claircognizance Mean?
Claircognizance is a psychic gift of extra “knowing” perception. Claircognizants just “know” things without knowing how. It is a clear impression, feeling, or understanding of information given to the psychic who has this gift.
What are the 6 Psychic “Clairs”?
The 6 psychic clairs consist of: Clairvoyance (“Clear Seeing”), Clairaudience (“Clear Hearing”), Clairsentience (“Clear Sensing”), Claircognizance (“Clear Knowing”), Clairalience (“Clear Smelling”), and Clairgustance (“Clear Tasting”). (1)
What are the Claircognizant Abilities?
Claircognizant people receive clear “knowing impressions” about people, places, or things without hearing, seeing, feeling energy, or using other psychic senses.
What is a Claircognizant Medium?
Many psychic mediums use their gifts to “channel” information from loved ones who have crossed over. This gift helps with grieving and can heal the family who are still on Earth process their pain.
But, a lot of mediums who can communicate with the dead, often use many other psychic gifts to clearly receive that information.
There are mediums who are also claircognizant. They may see spirits clairvoyantly and also receive strong knowing impressions from the spirit world, claircognizantly.
What is it Like to be Claircognizant?
Claircognizance is a hard psychic ability to explain. For me, it is almost like a whole body goose bump or twinge comes just before the information.
Then I feel an instant download or exchange of information and simply “know” it is true, without having to look it up or corroborate the information!
Claircognizant messages usually come through very strongly and are undeniably felt.
The Difference between Claircognizants, Clairsentients, and Empaths
Claircognizants receive clear knowing impressions of information that would otherwise be unknowable.
Clairsentients are highly sensitive people who “sense” or “feel” subtle energies around them. They may be pulled to objects, buildings, places, or people to receive the information they need.
Empaths are also highly sensitive people (HSPs), who are sensitive to the energies around them.
It is very possible to have claircognizance and also be clairsentient or empathic.
As an empath myself, I’ve noticed that I am particularly sensitive to other’s emotions and changes in their auric field (the electromagnetic field housing our spirits around our physical bodies).
All psychics need protection, but clairsentients and empaths are especially vulnerable because of their ability to feel energies.
It can be overwhelming to feel other’s emotions so strongly!
These things have made a huge difference in my anxiety and my ability to be around crowds and people!

7 Signs You May be Claircognizant
You Know Things (You Just Do!)
One morning as I drove to work, I got a very clear, very strong impression that my brother bought a new puppy!
Without checking with him, I just knew that he’s bought a dog without a doubt in my mind!
“Scott got a dog,” I said to myself in the car. “Not sure how that information helps me, but ok!”
Later that night he called me and asked me to come see his new puppy! It was totally useless, pointless, and stupid, but claircognizant! LOL!
You’ll Know the Outcome to Situations Without Knowing How
When my sister’s scan showed nodules on her lungs, I just knew it was nothing to worry about!
Of course, she was very concerned, but I had a very good feeling about the outcome without knowing why.
And, two months later, another scan revealed the “nodules” to be completely gone with no known reason the doctor’s could come up with.
Finish Other People’s Sentences or Know What Other’s Are Going to Say
Claircognizants can often tell what others are going to say before they say it! They will often finish other’s sentences who seem to be taking too long to spit it out!
My husband has asked me to kindly let him articulate his own thoughts in his own time and I’ve honored his request, no matter how long it takes him!
You Have Excellent Gut Instincts (Like Clairsentients!)
Claircognizants, like clairsentients have great gut instincts! They’ll just know that a job or move isn’t right, a potential mate is shady, or know to drive a different route home.
Many people have times where they’ve been claircognizant and didn’t trust their intuition, which led to them getting hurt or going down a hard road.
You Can Tell if Other’s are being Shady or Lying
As well as clairsentients and empaths, claircognizants can usually tell when someone is lying or they are being misdirected because of their great gut instincts!
They are like human lie detectors!
Even great fast-talking sales people cannot pull the wool over a claircognizant’s eyes!
Great Ideas Simply “Pop” into Your Awareness
You don’t have to be clairvoyant or clairaudient to have a great idea given to you by your spirit guides!
Sometimes, a great solution to your problem will simply pop into your head (usually when you stop obsessing about the problem!)
I often have great ideas in the shower or meditation!
Waking up with Solutions is a Sign of Claircognizance
You may be having a problem with co-worker and not know how to handle it. Psychic impressions often come to us in the night when our rational minds stop yammering long enough to receive the information.
You may then wake up knowing that your co-worker just needs some space because they’ve been having a rough time!
This is a trait of claircognizance!
Claircognizants are Great at Predicting the Weather
Weather men predict the weather with things like barometers. They calculate wind speed, pressure, etc. to calculate what may happen next.
Claircognizants have an uncanny knack for just knowing what the weather has in store for them without any telltale signs!
