Clairvoyance- Clear Seeing
Part 1 in my series - The Clair-senses; The Basics to Intuition and Psychic Abilities
By Amanda Rae
Clairvoyance is probably the most well known, yet most misunderstood of all psychic abilities.
Clairvoyance means “clear seeing”. It means you receive intuitive information through visions, pictures and symbols. These are seen through your third eye; also known as your minds eye, inner seeing or psychic sight. This inner eye is located on your forehead, in between your eyes. This area is also where your third eye chaka is located.
The Third Eye
Clairvoyance is the gift of psychic sight. Some also refer to those as “a seer.” I am strongly clairvoyant. When I receive an image – for example of a person who has crossed over, they don’t appear to me as if they were physically standing in my kitchen making a cup of coffee. They are appearing in my third eye, they aren’t visible in “the real world.” However, the image in my mind may be as clear as day, but it’s in my mind. I am not using my physical eyes.
If I were to tell you to picture a big red apple in your mind, can you do that? Are you able to see the color red? Can you tell the size of it? This apple most likely appeared in your minds eye on a blank screen. You can use the apple exercise using all kinds of images, letters or symbols. See how long you can hold it there. Get as descriptive as you possibly can. It’s a fun technique that I learned in a class that helped me understand what I was naturally experiencing!
If you are clairvoyant, Spirit will use the third eye to communicate using visions, pictures, symbols, colors, and quick video clips. Sometimes I see a series images that look to be printed on flash cards. Using your third eye is just like any other muscle. You have to work to build it’s strength. Take your time, be creative, relax and enjoy it!
Pictures, Images and Video clips in your mind
The following list is a list of some ways clairvoyants can receive information. We all experience these things differently. We are as individual as it gets, no way is the right or wrong way.
Psychic sight can come as:
- A “ Polaroid snapshot” of an image or object- a brief moment in time
- A flash of a “symbol” or “symbolism” that represents something else – like an Apple. It could mean health to one clairvoyant and Teacher to another
- Quick movie clips- as if you’re watching scene in a movie, but it’s happening in your mind
- Sparkles or twinkles in your side vision that appears like glitter or flashes of light- can also be different colors
- Colors surrounding people- known as auras- around the entire body or areas of the body
- Dreams- they hold symbolic and prophetic information- using a journal to document your dreams can be insightful
This gift/ability of psychic sight mustn’t be compared. There are so many variations. Comparison will strain your connection with Spirit. When you compare yourself to someone else, you give away the power and confidence in your self, and risk missing messages. Especially if you are looking for them to come in a different way. Just relax and know that it takes time and practice.
I learned a lesson in comparing- a big lesson. I wanted to share my story with you. To read more check out Lessons in Comparison.
Symbols are a big part of psychic sight. Spirit uses all kinds of symbols to communicate.
It might even feel like you are playing a game of charades! Just relax, and go with it! It can be like cracking a code, and you’ll probably ask yourself “What in the world does that mean?” And that’s totally ok!! I did, and still do sometimes!
As you continue to be shown more, you will have the opportunity to make more sense of it. The more you practice, the better you get at deciphering the messages.
Let’s try an example. Let’s say you are getting an image of a blanket. (symbol) That could literally mean a thousand things, right? Then you see arms together rocking. (quick movie clip) You are shown a blanket, then rocking arms. Spirit shows you over and over as you process the meaning. Putting them together leads you to understand the actual meaning- which for me would be baby! It’s super helpful to keep a spiritual vocabulary notebook and journal about your experiences so you can reference them the future. The next time you see those two symbols together, you will automatically know what they mean.
See how fun that is? I just love how spirit works!
It is important that you keep a notebook so you can build your own psychic vocabulary. Remember, no two clairvoyants are the same, therefore each has a vocabulary unique to their own. Spirit will work with you by using your own life experiences to define the symbols you need. The key is to relax and let Spirit guide you, like a team member would playing charades! After all, it is a member of your spirit team helping you!
The scenery is time bound but the seer is timeless. You are the timeless seer in the midst of the time bound scenery.
One morning I went for a jog on the indoor track at our local gym. I was listening to my tunes, totally minding my own business. I felt someone coming up behind me so I turned slightly to see how close they were. I saw it was a man so I moved into the next lane giving him space to pass me. A few strides later, I still felt him behind me so I turned again expecting him to pass me and he was gone! There was no possible way for anyone to get off that track unless they jumped down to the basketball courts below. It took me a second to realize that I saw that man clairvoyantly, in my minds eye! Jogging and listening to my music had provided my mind with enough calmness to enter into a slightly meditative state, so I was able to receive information from my clairs!
Experiencing this actually deepened my understanding of how it works and feels using that extra sense. The more experience you gain, the easier it gets to understand and process the information over time. I am still learning new things from spirit with each reading session I do. The learning will never stop, and that part is exciting to me.
Clairvoyance is , in my opinion, one of the most well known, yet misunderstood of the psychic abilities. I hope that you have a better understanding of how it works. Perhaps you even came to the conclusion that you may be a clairvoyant! Keep in mind all the different ways Spirit can communicate with you via your third eye, pictures, symbols and images, and have an open mind. Spirit is always willing to communicate with us. All you have to do is trust!
