Study Seeks to Find Scientific Evidence for Clairvoyance
A groundbreaking new study seeks to scientifically validate an ability we may all be born with, clairvoyance.
Clairvoyance, or the ability to perceive beyond the physical sense of sight, has been documented in almost every culture across all time. And yet it, like other psychic abilities, has often been feared, misunderstood, and disbelieved. Today, an ever-growing interest in extended perception has motivated researchers to scientifically study the phenomenon.
Helané Wahbeh ND, MCR, is the Director of Research at the Institue of Noetic Sciences (IONS), which investigates transcendent human experiences through rigorous scientific study. Dr. Wahbeh and her team recently conducted a study into clairvoyance.
“Clairvoyance is a historic term, it’s been used for a very long time, and it specifically means ‘clear seeing,’ but really it is this extended perception of being able to perceive beyond our physical sense of sight,” Dr. Wabeh said. “This shows up in different ways for people, some people actually see colors, they see supposed other beings that don’t have physical bodies, other people see in their mind’s eye. So, they might receive information or visuals from other people, from things around them that they wouldn’t be able to possibly know with their traditional five senses.”
Cyndi Dale is an energy healer and intuitive who has experienced clairvoyant abilities throughout her entire life.
“So there are many, many different ways that somebody can get a clairvoyant image or vision,” Dale said. “One of the ways is at night, sometimes they’re in dreams, sometimes in color or in black and white. Some people get their visions when they’re daydreaming. Sometimes the pictures that come in are futuristic, they’re about pre-destiny or something that could happen. Many times I find that the visions are about history, what’s occurred, or they’re psychological and they’re explaining what is. Being clairvoyant is complicated because it’s not just about receiving, it’s about how do you work with the images, how do you interact with them?”
While many clairvoyants have experienced these abilities from birth, there are many others who have developed the skill through training, which begs the question: Is everyone clairvoyant?
“Does everyone have the capacity to receive information and energy from beyond time and space? Yes, I do believe everyone has the capacity to do that, and yet the way that it shows up for them is unique,” Dr. Wahbeh said.
Using clairvoyance to obtain verifiable information has been repeatedly demonstrated in the forms of remote viewing and medical intuition. The recent study at IONS is the first designed to validate whether clairvoyant seers are able to accurately perceive what occurs during an energy medicine session.
It is a follow-up to an earlier study IONS did with the participation of one seer that yielded promising results. As this experiment incorporates multiple seers, the researchers hope is that the findings will not only validate the practice of clairvoyance but will also shed light on how energy medicine works.
“We had these reiki masters giving 30-minute sessions to people who had a variety of different health conditions, and in that space, we had six clairvoyant seers who were observing the sessions,” Dr. Wabheh said. “The primary research question is: What is the corroboration between those six seers in terms of what they were observing during each session? Our hypothesis is that there will be a corroboration between them, thus validating this experience of clairvoyant seeing.”
Researchers just finished data collection and are working on the findings. In this study and others being planned at IONS, the goal is not only to validate clairvoyance but also to understand just how it works.
Quantum Evidence Our Consciousness Persists After Death
An Oxford-educated trial lawyer, fourth-generation psychic medium, and author of The Evidence of Eternity, Mark Anthony is a multi-faceted man who bridges the scientific and spiritual perspective of what he terms our “electromagnetic soul.”
Anthony shares his unique approach explaining what lies beyond this physical existence, as he fuses science with the world of psychic phenomena. And, while Newtonian physics claims psychic matters are unprovable or untenable, the world of quantum physics may show otherwise.
All discussion of psychic phenomena, and how it fits into our model of existence, hinges on the poorly understood concept of consciousness. Anthony defines consciousness as the energy of who and what we are.
In spiritual circles, it’s called the “soul” or the “spirit,” and as pure energy, consciousness is eternal, he adds. But what’s most remarkable is that consciousness is capable of perception beyond our five well-known senses. And here’s where we step into a whole other reality, because consciousness, not limited to the physical/material world, is our entry-way into other dimensions of existence.
The knowledge that the mind and the brain are separate is fundamental to understanding psychic phenomena, reincarnation, survival of physical death, and much more. Anthony likens the brain to a computer hard drive, and the shortcoming of mainstream science is to believe that consciousness is an artifact of this vital organ.
To further this hard drive analogy, he suggests the brain does not create consciousness, but rather “hosts” it. Unless we can get past this elementary mistake of believing that consciousness is an artifact of the brain, instead of the other way around, we remain stuck in a materialist worldview that fails to recognize what many know to be the “real” reality of tremendous expansion and potential.
