Clairvoyant: (adj) having or exhibiting an ability to perceive events in the future or beyond normal sensory contact.
If I were to go to the barn and stand around the pig pen and postulate over what the hog behind the fence might do next, it certainly could be considered clairvoyant.
“The animal will oink, followed by wallowing in the mud and then grunting, begging for food,” I might say.
You might stand back in great wonder when the pig fulfilled my prophesy.
Sometimes we have to learn the difference between clairvoyant and discernment. You can feel free to debate whether certain individuals have a deeper insight into reality which could not possibly have been achieved by natural means–or you can come to the conclusion that the more each of us learns to discern how things work, how people function and the common sense of Mother Nature, the more we may appear to be divinely inspired.
For instance, noticing that one of your fellow-workers enters the building without speaking a word and the next thing you hear is a loud noise from his office as he throws his things on the desk…
Well, being able, at that point, to grab a cup of coffee, take it back to him and implore, “Is there anything I can do for you? Are you having a tough day?”
This is not clairvoyant. It’s observant.
It is contingent on each member of the human tribe to keep eyes, ears and even nostrils available, to sense the feeling in a room, alluding to the signs of coming trouble. Otherwise we will start complaining that God did not send us a prophet or prophetess to warn us of these horrible future events.
What God and Mother Nature send our way are inklings, tinglings and visuals of trouble that is beginning to unfold.
He that hath a brain
Let him notice what’s insane.
