The purported direct transference of information about an object, location or contemporary physical event through Psi. An individual is said to be able to gather information from an external contemporary source that is hidden from their traditional senses by distance or physical barriers. 
Clairvoyance
Clairvoyance is the ability to gain information about an object, physical event, or location through means other than the known human senses; it is a form of extra-sensory perception (ESP). A person who has the ability of clairvoyance is known as a clairvoyant ("one who sees clear"). 

The term clairvoyant comes from 17th century French with clair meaning "clear" and voyance meaning "visibility". 

Claims for the existence of paranormal psychic abilities such as clairvoyance are often highly controversial. Parapsychology explores and studies the phenomena, but the existence of the paranormal is not accepted by science or the scientific community. 

Within parapsychology, clairvoyance is used exclusively to refer to the transfer of information that is both contemporary to, and hidden from, the clairvoyant. It is differentiated from telepathy in that the information is said to be gained from an external physical source instead of being transferred from the mind of one individual to another. 

Outside of parapsychology, clairvoyance is often used to refer to other forms of anomalous cognition, commonly the perception of events that have occurred in the past or events which will occur in the future (retrocognition and precognition). It is a term also used to refer to communications with the dead (mediumship). 

Clairvoyance is also related to remote viewing, although the term "remote viewing" is not widely applicable to clairvoyance due to the fact that it refers to a specific, controlled process. 

Within the field of parapsychology, there is a consensus that some instances of clairvoyance are verifiable. Among the general public, between 25% and 33% of the US population say they believe in clairvoyance. During the Cold War, the concept of clairvoyance gained some support from both the US and Russian governments, with both making several attempts to harness it as an intelligence gathering tool. 

But, to skeptics, clairvoyance is the result of: 

Fraud 

Self-delusion 

Barnum Effects: the observation that individuals will give high accuracy ratings to descriptions of their personality that supposedly are tailored specifically for them, but are in 
fact vague and general enough to apply to a wide range of people 

Confirmatory biases: a tendency to search for or interpret new information in a way that confirms one's preconceptions and avoids information and interpretations which contradict prior beliefs 

Failures to appreciate the base rate of chance occurrences.
There have been anecdotal reports of clairvoyance and "clear abilities" throughout history in most cultures, mostly associated with religious or shamanic figures, offices, and practices. While anecdotal accounts do not provide scientific proof of clairvoyance, such common experiences continue to motivate research into the phenomena. 

The earliest somnambulistic clairvoyance is credited to the Marquis de Puységur, who in 1784 was treating a local peasant named Victor Race. During treatment, Race would reportedly go into a trance and undergo a personality change, becoming fluent and articulate, giving diagnosis and prescription for his own disease as well as those of others. When he would come out of the trance state, he would be unaware of anything he has said and done. It is reported that though Puységur used the term "clairvoyance", he did not think of the phenomena as "paranormal", accepting the phenomena as one of the natural sciences. 

Clairvoyance was also a reported ability of some mediums during the spiritualist period in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. It was one of the phenomena studied by the Society for Psychical Research (SPR). Psychics of many descriptions have claimed clairvoyant ability over the years and up to the present day. 

Parapsychological research studies of remote viewing and clairvoyance have produced favorable results significantly above chance. At the Stanford Research Institute in 1972, studies were initiated on a series of human subjects to determine whether participants (the viewers or percipients) could reliably identify and accurately describe salient features of remote locations or targets. In the early studies, a human sender was generally present at the remote location. 

A three-step process was used: 

Step One: random selection of target conditions to be experienced by the senders 

Step Two: viewing step; participants asked to verbally express or sketch their impressions of the remote scene 

Step Three: judging step; descriptions were matched by separate judges, as closely as possible, with the intended targets. 

The term remote viewing was coined to describe the overall process. 
Two Types of Clairvoyance

   There are two types of clairvoyance. Positive, voluntary clairvoyance is that in which the individual is able, at will, to see in and investigate the inner worlds, and is the master of himself and what he is doing. This type of clairvoyance is developed through pure, helpful living, and the individual must be carefully trained in its use, in order that it may be completely effective and useful. Negative, involuntary clairvoyance exists when the sights of the inner worlds are presented to an individual quite independently of his will; he sees what is given him to see and can in no way control this sight. This type of clairvoyance is dangerous, laying the individual open to possession by discarnate entities and, if permitted to go far enough, presenting the possibility that his or her life, in this world and the next, will quite literally not be his or her own. 

   In the brain are two small organs called the pituitary body and the pineal gland. Medical science knows but little about them, and calls the pineal gland "the atrophied third eye," yet neither it nor the pituitary body is atrophying. This is very perplexing to scientists for Nature retains nothing useless. All over the body we find organs which are either atrophying or developing. 

   The pituitary body and the pineal gland belong to still another class of organs, however, which at the present time are neither evolving nor degenerating, but are dormant. In the far past, when man was in touch with the inner worlds, these organs were his means of ingress thereto, and they will again serve that purpose at a later stage. They were connected with the involuntary or sympathetic nervous system. In earlier times (during the Moon Period and the latter part of the Lemurian and early Atlantean Epochs) man saw the inner worlds; pictures presented themselves quite independently of his will. The sense centers of his desire body were spinning around counterclockwise (following negatively the motion of the Earth, which revolves on its axis in that direction) as the sense centers of "mediums" do to this day. In most people these sense centers are inactive, but true development will set them spinning clockwise. That is the difficult feature in the development of positive clairvoyance. 
Some people become clairvoyant after a Near Death Experience, an alleged alien abduction, serious illness or accident, such as a blow to the head area, or opening the kundalini energies. 

Some people use chemical stimulants or Psychedelics to heighten their awareness. This is something I do not advise as the information may not be accurate and physical side effects may occur later on. 

Clairvoyance connects to the right side of the brain - the feminine, creative, and intuitive aspects. That explains the reason some people feel physical sensations in on the left side of their body. The energy enters in through the left side of your body so as to activate the right side of your brain.
 
All children are clairvoyant, at least during the first year of life. How long the child will keep its faculty depends upon its spirituality and also upon its environment, because most children communicate all they see to their elders and the faculty of clairvoyance is affected by their attitude. Often children are ridiculed for telling of things that, their elders believe, can only be the result of "imagination," and they soon learn to shut out scenes with engender such ridicule, or at least to keep these things to themselves. 

Children can display psychic abilities leading parents to believe they are Indigo or Crystal Children. 

Opening your clairvoyant gifts has to do with DNA activation of your encoded cellular memories, activation of your chakras, raising your frequency, balancing your energy bodies, your self esteem, the ability to trust in what you 'hear' and 'see', your emotional state, and expanding your knowledge base in all areas of physical reality.
