There are many “clairs” in the psychic world, but one of the most popular is clairvoyance, which
translates to “clear sight.” Those with clairvoyant abilities have the power to acquire information or to see objects, animals, or people, despite any distance involved. In the case of a person or animal, the goal is to judge its present condition or emotional state. The clairvoyant can also pick up on past or future events. Seeing images, symbols, and flashing lights can be a bit disconcerting. However, unlike what you may have seen in movies, the spirits (including loved ones), angels, or spirit guides trying to contact you mean no harm. Their role is to simply obtain information from you so they can deliver a message.
Clairvoyance is often used as a general term encompassing phenomena such as telepathy, second sight, prophetic visions, and dreams. Clairvoyance works with your spiritual eye (aka third eye, the 6th chakra), not your real eyes. It’s located between the center of the forehead, but its energy comes from the mid-brain behind the forehead.
Do you think you have clairvoyant powers? If so, here are seven easy steps to strengthen your clairvoyance.
How to Know If You’re Clairvoyant
First thing’s first: How do you even know if you possess clairvoyant powers? Well, if you answer “yes” to several — or all — of the following questions, then the next step is to learn how to improve your clairvoyance.
- Do you have a keen intuition — almost all of the time?
- Are you an incredibly visual person?
- Do you have a sharp sense of direction?
- Are you extremely good at solving puzzles?
- Can you perfectly envision things in your head?
- Do you have vivid dreams?
- Do you see flashes of color and light?
- Can you see someone’s aura?
- Do you daydream easily?
How to Increase Clairvoyance
Even if you weren’t born as a natural clairvoyant, you could still develop clairvoyant skills on your own. Of course, as with anything, practice makes perfect, so be consistent if you want your ability to come more naturally.
1. Practice Visualization Exercises
Strengthen your third eye by trying to visualize the things around you. The goal is to eventually see images in your mind’s eye. Spend a few minutes each day visualizing different pictures, images, and symbols in your mind. Visualization is a simple yet enjoyable and stress-relieving way to strengthen your clairvoyant abilities.
2. Work With Zener Cards
Zener Cards (Hello, Ghostbusters flashback!) are an excellent tool for developing a psychic ability such as clairvoyance. Each card has a different basic shape on it, so you can technically make your own, too. You’ll need at least one other person to work with you. Let’s say you’re with a partner. Lay all the cards face down and grab one without showing anyone else. Close your eyes and visualize the shape (let’s say it’s a square in this case) before imagining you are telepathically sending it to this other person. Let them know when you’re done sending it and have them let you know which image they received — then switch. You can even do this over the phone, which is similar to psychics’ abilities when doing a long-distance reading.
3. Play a Memory Game
Simply Purchase or create your own memory flashcards and (you guessed it) test your memory. To refresh your memory, place all the cards face down and turn them over one by one. Next, go back and try to make matches by remembering the placement of the cards.
Another memory option is to take in your surroundings, whether you’re sitting in a restaurant, on the beach, a park — anything goes. Take a good look around you for about 20 seconds. Next, close your eyes and try to visualize as many details as possible. While looking down, open your eyes and write down everything you remember — no cheating or you’re only cheating your practice.
4. Work With Crystals
Many psychics work with crystals for one reason or another, but they are also an excellent tool to help you open up your third eye — think moonstone, fluorite, and amethyst. Wear them as jewelry, carry them with you in your pocket, keep them near you when you meditate. You can even try placing them near your forehead before you go to bed.
5. Keep a Journal
Journaling can help you remember all of the visions you had in those vivid dreams of yours. As with dream interpretation (clairvoyant powers aside), look for trends, consistencies, symbols, etc. — anything that can help you understand your clairvoyant abilities.
Even if you’re not learning how to practice clairvoyance, mediation is a useful tool to help anyone center themselves in good times or in bad. Find a quiet, distraction-free place that makes it easier to center yourself and collect your thoughts. If you find this difficult at first, there are copious guided meditation apps to help you through the process.
7. Speak to a Psychic
Who better to tell how to be clairvoyant than a psychic with the same gift!
