For every physical sense there’s a corresponding higher sense perception, such as clairaudience for hearing, and clairvoyance for seeing. These senses are not special gifts for a chosen few. Everyone uses inner sense perceptions, usually without realizing them. This means you can develop clairvoyance.
But what is clairvoyance? Let’s start with a basic definition.
What Is Clairvoyance?
Clairvoyance, from the French, means “clear vision.” Clairvoyance is simply seeing inner visual images. (There are different types of clairvoyance, but we’ll start with this simple ability.) You’re probably already experiencing it.
Where is clairvoyance received?
Physical sight is received through the organ of the eye, but the visual signal is communicated to the brain for processing. Vision actually occurs in the brain (visual cortex). Clairvoyant sight occurs in the right brain.
In Your Right Mind (Brain)
I won’t get into a detailed discussion of the difference between the right brain and the left brain, but basically the left brain is the analytical side, dealing with concrete things. The right brain is the creative side:
- It deals in ideas, pictures, and symbols.
- It’s the part of the brain active when you use your imagination.
- It’s also the center where you receive psychic and symbolic information—including clairvoyant images.
Want to begin learning how to see psychically? Read through the following simple exercise and then give it a try.
A Simple Exercise to Develop Clairvoyance
Close your eyes…
In your mind’s eye, visualize a flag flying atop a sunny, grassy knoll.
Can you see it waving in the breeze? See the sun glinting off the flagpole? See the wind caressing the grass?
Now the wind dies down, and the flag falls limp against the pole. Did you see it? It may take a few practice sessions before you do. The image is probably subtle.
If you don’t think you’re actually seeing anything in your imagination, don’t be concerned. You may just need more practice. Or you could be someone whose primary mode of psychic communication is clairaudience (hearing) or clairsentience (feeling). I talk more about this and provide an extended exercise in my audio presentation “Psychic Development for Writers.”
Where you saw the flag in your mind is where you receive clairvoyant information from external sources.
Many beginners overlook or discount the images they see there because they feel like they’re “making it up.” And that’s as it should be, because this spot is the center where you do make things up. You just need to discern the difference between the sources.
Sensitizing yourself to the place where you create images in your imagination takes practice. Doing so strengthens the connection between your right-brain imaging center and your left-brain analytical processes.
I liken this process to playing psychic post office with yourself.
Let’s Play Psychic Post Office
Pretend there is a post office in your mind, one with an area that holds a bank of individual mailboxes. One mailbox is your clairvoyant imaging center.
In the beginning of your exercises, you will play two roles: that of the postal worker behind the wall, who drops mail addressed to you into your mailbox, and that of the patron in the lobby, who checks the mailbox for new packages.
You practice receiving packages in your clairvoyant mailbox by placing them there on the postal worker side. (I provided you such a package with the previous flag exercise.) Then you switch roles to play customer, opening the mailbox to see what’s been delivered.
For instance, decide on an image to focus on. “I’m going to picture an Irish Setter.” Then you concentrate on the image and describe it. What does the dog look like? Can you see its tail wagging? How many details can you pick out?
- As postal worker: Place a package in the mailbox by imagining a picture or object that you can describe.
- As customer: Check for your mail by describing, out loud, the image you see there. Cover all the details.
- Practice this daily for a month if you can. It only takes a couple of minutes.
- Also every day, ask your guides to place an image in your clairvoyant mailbox and notify you that it’s there.
At some point, you won’t have to play both parts. Your guides will begin to play postmaster and deliver a clairvoyant image, and you will be able to see it and describe what it is. I suggest that you write it down and date it. Then ask for confirmation, which you should receive soon.
- Practice creating images in your clairvoyant center, seeing them, changing them, describing them.
- Let the pictures take on a life of their own, and describe what you see and how the images change.
- Practice having someone else give an image to you, and then describe what you see in your image center. This prepares you to receive information from an external source.
If you continue to practice this process, you will build the bridge from your right to left brain. Then you can talk to your guides, ask for an image, then check your mailbox.
I hope this process was helpful to you. Please let me know how it goes by leaving a comment. I’ll be happy to answer any questions. Ding. You’ve got mail!
