Clairvoyance is the act of clear seeing, and it’s considered a psychic ability.
Clairvoyant abilities are from a part of seeing that does not include your physical eyes and instead, the idea is that the images you see originate from within your third eye chakra, located between your brow and then the images are projected somewhere in the mind or out in front of the mind.
You have an intuitive eye, which also sees, just as your physical eyes do, but differently - and that's what this article is geared to talk about.
Everyone has an intuitive eye, and as such, everyone can see clairvoyant images if they would like to.
This clear-seeing ability is designed to not only assist you in creative thinking and imagination but for seeing the reality of things, the truth and the meaning of the nature of your situation.
It is an ability designed to provide you and others with more clarity on the world around by revealing hidden information also known as information not yet materialized on this plane.
The scope of the third eye and it’s seeing range extends in front of you, within you and behind you - so basically, this means that true clairvoyant images can appear:
In front of your eyes
From within your mind
Behind your head
Images can appear with eyes open or closed, during dreams, meditation or while awake, and can be any variety of shapes, forms or scenes.
This is why it can be scary for some when they first start experiencing it, and it can make others feel like they might be going crazy and this is a shame because clairvoyance affects some of the greatest minds and thinkers of our society.
When I first learned my ability to see things in vivid metaphors and dreams was a gift and that I wasn't crazy, I was both astonished and relieved, but then had more questions.
Since I’d always had played things out in my mind as people were telling a story and imagined the future vividly - and others said to me to squash it, how could this thing so normal to me, be anything special at all?
In fact, many people with clairvoyant abilities don’t even know they have them because they’ve known no other reality.
It’s the very same way with all types of intuitive gifts, too.
Most people who have clairvoyant gifts don't even realize they do, because their abilities, so commonplace to them, don't even stand out.
It's like this:
Imagine you were born with a beautiful smile.
All through your life, people commented on how beautiful your smile was, how much it lit up a room and how beautiful your teeth look. Over time, you become immune - it’ the only smile you’ve ever had, and everyone has smiles, how can yours be more beautiful than the rest?
My smile is just a smile, everyone’s teeth look like this.
You might have even told people who compliment you that your smile is nothing special.
But in fact, it is.
Often, your strongest intuitive trait, whether it is clairvoyance or something else, is something so ingrained in who you are, that the haver doesn't even believe it’s unique or special - because they've always had it, you assume that everyone else has the same abilities as you do. Some people even denigrate their gifts because others have put them down because of it.
And this would be incorrect and not very good if it continued.
Often a clairvoyant gift is so normal to a person, they don’t even realize it’s unique or that it doesn’t come to others so easily until it starts causing a problem or going haywire - like the person suddenly starts seeing and hearing things.
For many of my clients, when I share with them their strongest gifts as told by Spirit, they immediately say, something like, "Yea, that’s something I do. I’ve always had that ability, and that’s it? My ability to see things is a gift?"
Yes, it is.
For myself, I’ve always seen Spirits, and because I’ve always had this ability, I didn’t realize it was unique or special, I just thought it was something I had to deal with privately until others realized they could benefit and until I decided it was necessary for my own mental health.
While not every clairvoyant person sees Spirits, it’s possible your abilities are so normal to you, you don't yet realize your intuitive gifts could be developed and then enhanced.
There are other gifts, too.
Always know exactly what people need in a time of emotional distress?
That’s more a clairsentient thing.
Grand ideas and solutions tend to pop into your head?
Claircognizance may be your go-to gift.
Have a knack for delivering messages of truth and clarity, that many of your friends contact you for pep-talk?
Clairaudience may be your primary trait.
With clairvoyance, one of the biggest misconceptions is that the clairvoyant person can see images of the past, present, and future in front of their eyes, like a movie screen or film strip of images. It’s colorful, it’s sufficiently detailed and very clear.
It’s not usually like this, though.
Clairvoyant seeing is much more like the way you see an image in memory or when you're daydreaming. It can also be a bit like Pictionary, too.
Many times, clairvoyance is a bit seeing through the darkness, seeing through the veil, seeing through barriers. And for many clairvoyants, they need something to focus on to see the images. This is where the origin of the crystal ball comes into play, but most people don't need to use this - they can close their eyes and with practice, learn to focus on a spot within their mind's eye to generate images - this is the internal crystal ball.
For clairvoyance, much easier to see subtle images when staring at a blank wall, in dim lighting, than when room full of objects and clutter and bright lights, - this is why historical clairvoyants used a crystal ball, and candles, it was a place to focus and not become too distracted. Now, most people just close their eyes and use that darkness as a backdrop to see the images.
Moving away from the idea that clairvoyance has to be a certain way can help you start to expand the possibilities of how, where and whom can see and work with images best, enabling you to get the most use out of the largely untapped resource.
