The Clairs: 4 Ways of Receiving Guidance from the Angels


By Karen Noé, renowned psychic medium and author of the Angel Quest Oracle

The angels are very real beings of love and light whose main purpose is to guide and protect us. They love to give us signs and come to us in dreams as well. If you feel that you are not getting any signs or dreams from them, they may be coming to you in various other ways.

Most people expect to see an apparition of an angel or hear an audible voice from them. However, since they are spirit, rather than physical, they are probably speaking to you telepathically. That means they are speaking to you in your thoughts that may just pop in your head for no reason.

It is important to tell the difference between your thoughts and theirs. For example, suppose you see a picture of an angel, which triggers another thought, and then that triggers yet another thought. This is you thinking about the angel. However, if out of nowhere, you receive a thought offering you guidance as to what to do in some area of your life, chances are that it is your angel speaking directly to you.

You may receive these thoughts in a number of ways, and your angels will come to you in the manner that you will hear them the best. Here are the four “clairs,” which will help you to understand this concept more effectively:

1. Clairvoyance

If you are a visual person, you will probably receive pictures in your mind’s eye, or clairvoyantly. When I teach seminars about connecting with those in the spiritual realm, I share some fun exercises to help everyone learn how to give and receive messages from the angels. A favorite for all is when I ask half of those in the class to sit on one side of the room and the other half to sit on the opposite side. I tell those on one side to close their eyes, while I show a unique picture from a calendar or a magazine to those on the other side of the room. I then ask the ones who are looking at the picture to send that picture in their thoughts to the other side of the room. They may either send the dominant color in that picture, or the feeling about the picture, or the entire picture, or even small parts of the picture to those on the other side of the room. I ask them to do this without trying too hard; they are simply asked to see the picture in their mind’s eye and send that visual through their thoughts across the room. Then, I tell those who had their eyes closed to open them up and share what they have received. Many are astonished that they are able to give and receive visual messages in this way.

2. Clairaudience

If you are more of an auditory person, you may hear messages from the angels, in words, sounds, or music—which means you will be experiencing them clairaudiently. You may hear someone calling out your name, a favorite song playing, birds chirping, bells ringing, etc. when you least expect it.

3. Clairsentience

If you are a sensitive person, you may feel certain things. For example, you may feel emotions, heat or coldness, sense something around you, or smell aromas—such as perfume, flowers, or essential oils. If this is happening, you will be experiencing messages from the angels clairsentiently.

4. Claircognizance

Finally, you may be the type of person who just knows certain things for no apparent reason. In this case, you will probably receive the messages as gut feelings or an inner knowingness that someone is around you, and you will just know what your angel is saying, without even understanding why. If you experience messages in this way, you will be experiencing them claircognizantly.

If you feel that you are still not hearing the angels, you can always receive messages from them via the use of Angel Quest Oracle cards. Everyone can do angel card readings for themselves or others using these cards. All you have to do is hold the cards in your hands and ask the angels what you need to know. Then, shuffle the deck. The angels will let you know when to stop shuffling and which card to select. You may receive this information intuitively; a card may jump out of the deck; the cards may stick together, and you’ll be guided to take the top one; and so on. The message from the angels is written directly on the card itself, and you can also read what the card means in further detail with the accompanying book. You will see how easy it is to do, and how accurate the message is for you!

Whichever way you receive messages from the angels, just acknowledge everything you get, even if the messages don’t make sense to you at that moment. In time, you will begin to understand what the angels are trying to communicate to you, and your life will never be the same.

Remember, you are never alone. The angels are with you every step of the way! And, the more you are aware of their guidance, the more they will continue communicating to you.

Angel blessings to you now and always!
