Gifts of the Past

The Delphic Sibyl by Michaelangelo on the Sistine Chapel, Vatican City

Intuitive gifts have been recorded throughout history and across cultures in many forms. Ancient civilizations sought out information through the use of oracles. Oracles were people who were either considered a manifestation of the gods, or would channel information from the gods. Ancient Egypt has the oldest temple, where the first known oracle existed. Oracle temples were also found in Libya, Persia, and other ancient societies. In Ancient Greece and Rome, women who had prophetic gifts were all given the name, Sibyl. These priestesses were sought out as oracles, who had information from crop harvests to battle outcomes. David Wilcock explains how the most famous Sibyl of Cumae would write down her prophecies on fallen leaves, and let the wind take them from her cave to the people of Rome. It is said that in Greece, priests would relay messages of the oracle.

A Shaman is another historic figure across cultures with intuitive gifts. Shamans are found across the Middle East and Asia. They are connected to nature and the spirit world. Ceremonies and rituals to receive information, heal others, manifest, and protect. These rituals included dancing, music, various tools, offerings, and instruments to ward off dark spirits, manifest a bountiful harvest, guide the deceased to heaven, and celebrate important events.

Gifts of the Present

Today, we have named and categorized the numerous intuitive gifts one may have. Everyone has at least one gift, and some are able to possess all intuitive gifts. We often realize our gifts as children, and sadly detach from our gifts when we are discouraged from practicing them. The most common gifts are sensory based: clairaudience, claircognizance, clairsentience, and clairvoyance.

Clairaudience is “clear hearing,” and the ability to receive auditory messages from angels, ascended masters, deities, and other spirit guides including crystals, animals, and plants. These messages can be words and phrases, or sometimes specific songs or other sounds that relate to the topic being discussed. If someone with the gift of clairaudience does hear words and phrases, some can detect distinguished voices of different guides. Telepathy is a honed and practiced form of clairaudience where one can hear the thoughts of other people, animals, plants, crystals, etc. Some can open a pathway of communication relaying messages back to the entity they are hearing.

Claircognizance is “clear knowing” with the ability to receive information instantly without any prior knowledge of the subject. It is often described as instant information downloaded into the brain much like how a computer downloads documents into its database.

Clairsentience is “clear feeling,” which allows messages to be received through emotions, intuition, and physical sensations. Today, there are more and more people calling themselves “empaths,” which are people who utilize their intuition and gift of clairsentience to detect other people’s energies, emotions, thoughts, situations, and more. All empaths are clairsentient, but not all people with clairsentience are empaths. Truth be told, everyone is clairsentient to some extent. Have you ever entered someone’s house and immediately felt like you were at home? Have you gone somewhere to eat and felt like it was cold and unwelcoming? Well, that’s your clairsentience at work! Another enhanced form of clairsentience is psychometry. This is when we touch an object, person, plant, or animal and are able to receive messages about a particular situation or occurrence. Psychometry often combines a second gift of clairaudience, claircognizance, or clairvoyance to hear, know, or see the situation or person that is related to what we touched.

Clairvoyance is “clear seeing,” and the gift of seeing pictures of people, places, or situations of the past, present, and future. Clairvoyance is often tied to precognition or fortune telling and prophetic visions, where the person with this gift can see what the future holds for their subject based on the path they are on and other outcomes based on different choices. Another gift tied to clairvoyance is the ability to see auras. Auras are the energies that are being emitted by our subtle bodies, (mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual). Everyone and everything has an aura because everything in our physical realm is made up of matter and the energetic vibrations between each molecule, which creates these auras. People who are clairvoyant are also often able to channel spirits of those who have passed, and are commonly known as “mediums” since they are the medium facilitating communication. “Mediums” often have a combination of multiple “clair” gifts with the ability to see, hear, feel, and know about the person who has passed, their life, and relationships with others.

Doreen Virtue’s Goddess Oracle Cards. Spread and picture by Eternal Waking Beauties

Humanity has created a number of tools and ceremonies to aid in harnessing these gifts. One of the most popular tools used to channel one’s gifts are tarot cards. The original deck created by the Secret Order of the Golden Dawn has never been released to the public. However, there are three decks created by different members of the Golden Dawn based on the original deck. They are the Rider-Waite, B.O.T.A., and Thoth tarot decks. All other interpretations and variations of the tarot stem from these three decks. Tarot is used to answer questions from what to expect for the day to the significance of one’s life path. Closely related to tarot are oracle cards. Oracle cards often give a more general answer and offer guidance and insight. Popular oracle cards offer inspiration from our angels, ascended masters, the fae, mermaids, and deities. General playing cards can also be “read” for insight into a situation or predicament.

Another tool used to channel these gifts are pendulums. Pendulums come in a variety of shapes and materials. Some are purely made out of metal (often copper) while others include gemstones, rudraksha seeds, and crystals. Pendulums feel the vibrations of our energy connected to “the source” or “spirit” to answer our questions by swaying front to back and side to side, or rotate clockwise and counterclockwise. There are also charts that can be used to answer our questions from what our subconscious is thinking to what kind of vitamins our body needs. Pendulums can also be used to clear out negative energies and draw in positive energies to rooms, chakras, and even crystals.

Lastly, crystals are often used as tools to channel our intuitive gifts. This is often done through a technique called “scrying,” where one looks into a crystal and is able to see different pictures. These pictures or visions often relate to the topic in question, and it is up to the reader to give a proper interpretation of what is being seen. The most commonly used crystal for scrying is Clear Quartz. Clear Quartz amplifies all psychic abilities. It also enhances and clears energies in the body center, and purifies physical, mental, and spiritual bodies. Clear Quartz also amplifies the vibrations of other stones. Other stones that are good for scrying are Amethyst, Apophyllite, Golden Beryl, Scolecite, Celestite, Rutilated Quartz, Smoky Quartz, and more.

Other tools that have been used throughout history and across cultures are dowsing rods, runes, numerology, palmistry, tea leaves, candle scrying, astrology, and I-Ching.
