You might have come across the terms Clairvoyant or Clairvoyance. Clairvoyance has been often described as an extrasensory power that provides a person an ability to gain information about an object, person, location, or physical event. There have been several Hollywood movies made that have Clairvoyance as a central concept, where-in the plot involves people with paranormal ability (or a Clairvoyant) to see persons and events that are distant in time or space. These people are able to do things which are outside the range of normal perception such as perceive or predict future events, see past events, and do remote viewing.
Does the above sound like mumbo-jumbo? It likely does… because it is. Clairvoyance does exist, but it works very differently from what is described above.
Clairvoyance is a word which has been sorely misused, misunderstood, and mystified. The purpose of this article is to explain what the concept really is and how it is used within the MCKS Pranic Healing and Arhatic Yoga system.
Clairvoyance: Looking Beyond the Form
The word Clairvoyance comes from the French clair meaning “clear” and voyance meaning “vision”. Hence clairvoyance means nothing other than “clear seeing”.
Are then people with 20/20 vision clairvoyant?
Clairvoyance is the ability to see beyond the physical form or beyond physical matter.
So, what exactly is physical form?
In physics, a state of matter is one of the distinct forms in which matter can exist. According to the current understanding of science, there are four states of matter observable in everyday life – solid, liquid, gas and plasma. Plasma was discovered in 1879 by Sir William Crookes who called it “radiant matter”. Then there have been other states of matter which have been postulated. One of these is the Bose-Einstein condensates. Bose-Einstein condensates were postulated as far back as 1924 and was first physically produced in 1995 by Eric Cornell and Carl Wieman at the University of Colorado at Boulder NIST–JILA lab. Additionally modern science has postulated a few dozen other exotic states of matter. While a large number of these exist as theoretical possibilities, none of these can be observed in normal conditions.
In ancient times, people were not aware of the existence of states of matter such as plasma and Bose-Einstein condensates and their properties. It does not mean that these states of matter did not exist. According to Master Choa Kok Sui, “one’s ignorance does not change reality; it simply alters the perception of reality, resulting in incorrect perception and misconception of what is and what is not.”
It is also therefore plausible that there are things beyond the physical states of matter which are currently beyond the grasp of physical sciences. Specifically, the basis for Pranic Healing is Prana. Prana is a Sanskrit word that means “life-force” and is an invisible bio-energy that keeps the body alive and maintains a state of good health. Although science is not able to detect and measure life energy or Prana, it does not mean that Prana does not exist or does not affect the health and well-being of the body. Likewise, concepts such as the aura and chakras are currently beyond the comprehension of modern science. Yet this does not mean that these concepts are not-real. Experiments conducted during the Basic Pranic Healing workshop establish the existence of both the aura and chakras.
Clairvoyance, simply put, is the ability to see beyond the form. Specifically, in the context of Pranic Healing, Clairvoyance is understood as the ability to see the energy body, the chakras and other subtle vehicles. There is nothing paranormal about Clairvoyance. Our submission is that humans are naturally Clairvoyant and can “see” energy. Within the first hour of the Basic Pranic Healing workshop, all participants (without exception) are able to see air prana and the aura! Through proper training it is possible for develop this faculty further to perceive other subtle energies including the different bodies and the chakras. This is actually the subject matter of the Higher Clairvoyance workshop.
It is partly through such observations and investigations that Pranic Healing was developed as an energy healing modality. MCKS was helped by three highly developed Clairvoyants Mang Dabon, Mang Nenet and Mang Mike in his experiments on Pranic Healing. “Mang” in Filipino means respected sir.
One may also do well to note that the ability of being a Clairvoyant has nothing to do with spiritual development. Additionally, MCKS also clarified (in his book The Origin of Modern Pranic Healing and Arhatic Yoga) that even the best Clairvoyants see only with 70% accuracy. Hence, Clairvoyant investigations alone are not adequate and one needs to additionally apply discernment and intelligent evaluation to interpret results from any Clairvoyant investigation.
Additionally, Clairvoyants are not necessarily good healers. There are a large number of proficient Certified Healers within the school who are not clairvoyant, but a wonderful healers. The most incredible healer that we have come across was Master Choa Kok Sui himself. A quote from his first book (the Ancient Art and Science of Pranic Healing) will clarify the link between clairvoyance and the ability to produce results through healing: “I am not a clairvoyant nor was I born with any healing ability. If I could learn how to heal effectively, then you can also!”
However, having said that being a clairvoyant is a gift. It gives you freedom and ability to see what is normally not known to all, the ability to look at objects, happenings and situations from a deeper level, beyond the physical manifestations. It therefore takes you nearer to the truth.
