The two main types of extrasensory perception talked about before, telepathy and clairvoyance, may seem somewhat similar too, but are actually quite different. Telepathy involves a connection and influence between two minds, while clairvoyance involves a connection and influence between the state of a physical object, person, or situation to a mind. This means that nature, or the universe, as a whole is always aware of the physical state of affairs, which in turn communicates such information to a mind. It helps if you think of the universe as one big computer or living brain that is aware, can think, and can form memories.


This difference between telepathy and clairvoyance is taken to be a difference between two forms of experiences. The goal of telepathic experiences is assumed to involve a person’s thoughts or mental states (example: how a person feels, thinks). In contrast, the goal of clairvoyant experiences is assumed to involve a physical situation or event that may or may not include other people.

This is viewed as telepathy being “direct,” since it involves a direct connection between two minds; whereas, clairvoyance is viewed as “indirect,” because it only results in finding out about the physical situation of a thing or person, rather than directly finding out about a person through the person them self.

There are three sub-types of clairvoyance:

  • Clairvoyant Cognition (CC) applies whenever information is clairvoyantly received by the experiencer from an environment, object, entity, or about a person’s situation.
  • Clairvoyant Interaction (CI) applies whenever information is clairvoyantly received or spoken through an experiencer in a trance by an entity and of which involves automatic movements to some degree.
  • Clairvoyant Simulation (CS) applies whenever a helpful or shifting effect is made by the experiencer, or by the experiencer’s environment or the universe as a whole.

CSThe main feature of clairvoyant simulation is that the experiencer can create an effect in their surrounding conditions, or even an environment far away, that is helpful to the experiencer. Also, the universe can create a helpful effect in the experiencer’s mind to meet the current needs of the experiencer.

In other words, an experiencer’s needs produce synchronicity or meaningful coincidences.
