Psychic senses come in several varieties: Clairaudience, Clairvoyance and Clairsentience.
Early on in my professional psychic experience I read for a young woman who was seeking clarity on her career direction. I had no idea what she did for a living but as I looked at her I ‘saw’ a flute over the right side of her body! I’d never ‘seen’ anything quite like this before. Clairvoyance or ‘psychic vision’ still seemed a bit ‘spooky’ to me so I said nothing and closed my eyes to enter the semi-trance state from which I do my psychic readings.
Clairaudience took over almost at once and I ‘heard’ music. It was Mozart and what I was hearing was Papagena from The Magic Flute! There was that flute again! I had seen it and now I was hearing it, an unusual combination in my experience in doing psychic readings up to that point. It seemed that what I wanted to ignore would not let me ignore it. So I told the client what I was sensing and asked if it had any meaning for her. She was silent for a moment so I opened my eyes to see if she was alright. She was dabbing at her eyes and trying to hold back tears. She said the flute was at the centre of her career dilemma. She was a musician with a national orchestra and although she played second violin – a considerable achievement for one so young – playing the flute was her real passion and she had been secretly studying it for several years.
It turned out that she had reluctantly learned the violin in school because her family had an old violin for her to practice on. My client wanted very much to play the flute but her parents could not the see sense in buying a flute when there was a perfectly good violin to play! She was a conscientious child and studied the violin for nine years under several distinguished teachers. When she was hired by the national symphony orchestra she could finally buy a flute. She came for a reading because she was torn between the ‘safe option’ of keeping her place as second violin and perhaps working her way up to first violinist or she could travel the much riskier path of trying to find a position as a flute soloist. One other option seemed to me to present itself: continue in her orchestra career and in the off season perform with smaller chamber groups, give recitals at schools, perform at cultural festivals, and generally become known as a flautist. Eventually, I felt the two career paths combining in an ensemble group.
The Magic Flute
Whenever I think of this client I still see “The Magic Flute” in my mind’s eye. For me, this reading was significant because it opened me to clairvoyance as a form of psychic sensing I could learn to trust. Whilst clairsentience still seems to be my dominant psychic sense, clairaudience and clairvoyance have become stronger over the years and have greatly enriched my experience of psychic reading.
