Clairvoyance; ‘Ngön she’ in Tibetan, literally meaning ‘heightened awareness’. Abilities that arise from special concentration. clairvoyance: One of the six supernormal powers, also called the divine or deva-eye.

There are five principal types of clairvoyance:
the clairvoyance of divine eye (the ability to see subtle and distant forms),
the clairvoyance of divine ear (the ability to hear subtle and distant sounds),
the clairvoyance of miracle powers (the ability to emanate various forms by mind),
the clairvoyance of knowing previous lives, and the clairvoyance of knowing others’ minds.

Some beings, such as bardo beings and some human beings and spirits, have contaminated clairvoyance that is developed due to karma, but these are not actual clairvoyance.
