The term clairvoyance (from French clair meaning „clear” and ”voyance” meaning „vision”) is the alleged ability to gain information about a person, object, location or physical event through extrasensory perception (ESP).

This is due to the psychic third eye (also known as Ajna chakra) being open and is the ability most linked with extra sensory perception.

The 3rd eye is a chakra that is located on the forehead, between the eyebrows. When people have 3rd eye visions, they see them in this space, which is known as the mind’s eye.

Here is a list of 7 famous clairvoyants in history:

#1 Joan of Arc

Joan of Arc(1412 – 1431), nicknamed „The Maid of Orléans”, is considered a heroine of France for her role during the Lancastrian phase of the Hundred Years’ War. She was canonized as a Roman Catholic saint.

Joan of Arc appears to have been able to see the future in a restrict extent. She was able to predict her injury at Orleans and her capture by the English.

There are numerous other examples of her ability. From being aware of battles taking place, to saving her men in battle by anticipating that if they stayed where they were they would die.

#2 Leonardo da VinciLeonardo da Vinci

Leonardo da Vinci(1452 – 1519), was an Italian polymath whose domains of interest included painting, invention, sculpting, architecture, science, music, literature, mathematics, engineering, anatomy, botany, geology, astronomy, writing, cartography, poetry and history.

Occasionally, da Vinci is compared with the prophet Nostradamus. His works often appear to presage the present. Indeed, he playfully adopts the guise of a seer in his Prophecies, a series of mysterious texts found in his notebooks that stand as puns or jokes. But among this amazing collection of plays on words is a despairing prediction:

„Many shall be seen carried by large animals with great speed, to the loss of their lives and to instant death. In the air and on the earth shall be seen animals of different colors, bearing men furiously to the destruction of their lives.” (hint – for “animals”, read “vehicles”)

#3 Saint Malachy

Saint Malachy (1095 – 1148) was an Irish saint and Archbishop of Armagh. Saint Malachy was the first native-born Irish saint to be canonized. A „Prophecy of the Popes” is attributed to St. Malachy, which is claimed to foresee that there would be only 112 more popes before the Last Judgment.

Benedictine Arnold de Wyon discovered and wrote the so-called „Doomsday Prophecy” in 1590. The complete prediction is: „In the final persecution of the Holy Roman Church there will reign Peter the Roman, who will feed his flock amid many tribulations, after which the seven-hilled city will be destroyed and the dreadful Judge will judge the people. The End.”

#4 NostradamusNostradamus

Nostradamus(1503-1566) was a French apothecary and reputed seer who published selections of prophecies that have since become widely famous. Nearly 1.000 prophecies were predicted by Nostradamus. One of his famous prophecies is the prediction about Adolf Hitler:

“From the depths of the West of Europe
A young child will be born of poor people,
He who by his tongue will seduce a great troop;
His fame will increase towards the realm of the East.”

#5 Marie Anne Adelaide Lenormand

Marie Anne Adelaide Lenormand (1772–1843) was a French professional fortune-teller of notable fame during the Napoleonic era. Marie Anne Adelaide Lenormand claimed to have acquired her first deck of cards when she was 14 from gypsies who taught her how to read them.

Her predictions were frequent said to be true, by people in high positions, some of whom gave their testimonial on condition of anonymity, some of whom had no scruples about revealing their identities in order to lend more credence to their claims.

#6 Jules Gabriel VerneJules Gabriel Verne

Jules Gabriel Verne(1828 – 1905) was a French poet, novelist, and playwright best known for his adventure novels and his important influence on the literary genre of science fiction. Verne wrote about time, space, water and air travel and portrayed technologies that were non-existent at his time.

Jules Verne’s writings greatly influenced Neil Armstrong, the first person to walk on the moon and Yuri Gagarin, the first person in space. The inventor of the bathysphere, William Beebe, would cite Jules Verne as his primary inspiration, as would polar explorer Admiral Richard Byrd.

#7 Edgar Cayce

Edgar Cayce(1877-1945) was an American psychic who answered questions on subjects as varied as reincarnation, healing, wars, Atlantis and future events while claiming to be in a trance. Daily for over 40 years of his adult life, Edgar Cayce would lie down on a couch with his hands folded over his stomach and allow himself to enter a self-induced sleep state (probably a lucid dream).

Then, provided with the location and name of an individual anywhere in the world, he would speak in a normal voice and give precise answers to any questions about that person that he was asked.
