Mysterious clairvoyance is an ability to perceive psychic information as visual data. I don’t mention seeing things with your eyes for a reason. You see, a common misconception of most people that want to learn psychic abilities, is that they think they need to see auras, chakras and energies with their physical eyes, for real. But in most cases, it’s your psychic inner sight that really sees things, and not your eyes.
As we can read on Wikipedia:
The term clairvoyance (from 17th century French with clair meaning “clear” and voyance meaning “vision”) is used to refer to the ability to gain information about an object, person, location or physical event through means other than the known human senses, a form of extra-sensory perception. A person said to have the ability of clairvoyance is referred to as a clairvoyant (“one who sees clearly”). (Source)
Actually, clairvoyance is a mean to acquire psychic data as visual data, like I have said already. And that’s it, basically. To see images of a different sort that are information about a person, event, place etc., while not using any of your five physical senses, this is clairvoyance. For some people, it’s the primary psychic “sense”, others use visual data, as well as sounds, smells and tactile feelings to get a clear information about their target. All of this creates psychic perception.
In order to learn clairvoyance, a person has to practice general psychic development – start with affirmations, meditation and emotional healing (core images work, for example). Basically, do everything that I have described in my book. But beside tons of exercises, a person must understand what clairvoyance really is. Or at least, how can one perceive stuff by using clairvoyant vision. With this knowledge, you won’t have expectations of stuff, so you will be able to see things for real.
Now, let’s say this openly – clairvoyance is not a psychic ability. Psychic ability would be to acquire information via psychic means. Clairvoyance is just a way to understand the information, which you’re capable of picking up. In other words, clairvoyance is an effect of your brain translating psychic data into a language that you can understand.
What a lot of people don’t know, is that it’s not the eyes that see. Eyes only pick up some photons, and then they send electrical impulses to your brain. Then, inside your brain, a whole profess of translating the impulses into an image happens. During that process, a lot of things is going on. The image you actually see goes through so called perception filters. Perception filters are your beliefs, thoughts, ideas, worries and concerns. In other words, if you don’t believe that something is out there, you won’t see it.
It’s best to give an example here, an example with aura view. Let’s say you’ve been taught that auras do not exist and that you cannot see them. Maybe even I taught you this in the past, before I understood things better. Your belief creates such perception filter. And you cannot see auras even if you try. Therefore, you need to reprogram your mind through affirmations and other techniques, to deal with that negative thought patter, that negative belief.
Now, the cool thing is – your brain still perceives things, but won’t allow your eyes to “see” them. Or should I say, it won’t allow the image layer of an aura, for example, to be included in the actual image that it serves to your conscious mind. Reprograming your mind to see things through physical eyes (through brain, but seeing them as real things) is tricky. But, because the information reaches your brain, you can still access it. This can be achieved, when enough patterns and blockages has been removed from your subconscious mind. That’s why emotional healing and affirmations are required for psychic growth.
Actually, it’s just how I teach psychic growth. Affirmations or emotional healing by use of core images work is just a technique, a tool, one of many. But these are very effective tools, that’s why I recommend using them. But if you stumble upon other way of reprogramming your mind, and that method will work for you, then use it, as well.
When you can access the images in your mind, this is called Psychic Sight, and this is what most psychics actually sees. It’s not a real, physical image, but it’s more like an effect of simple visualization. You see images in your mind. This apply to other psychic senses as well, like sensing scents, or hearing voices through psychic means. All of these phenomena can be picked up on the physical layer, or, if your mind isn’t clear enough, on the very “clair” layer. The methods of using Psychic Sight have been described in my book.
Now, the obvious question is – can a person really see psychically, but not as psychic sight, yet through physical eyes, or brain? I think so, yes :).
I do remember, that, in the past few years, I was able to see auras, energies and spirits, by using my physical eyes. I just switched to Psychic Sight, because it was much easier, and faster to use. And it was more accurate. I believe that, with enough training, I would be able to use my physical sight to perceive energies, yet for now, I see no need to. It’s even a bit safer for my mental health, because if I would start seeing things through my physical eyes, I would start to worry that I’m hallucinating.
Hallucinations are an interesting concept, because being afraid of mistaking psychic clairvoyance with hallucination might be an actual blockage, a subconscious blockage that might block you in seeing things physically, “for real”. Hallucinations, it is a subject in which I cannot advice, because I was never hallucinating, and I’m not really sure how to distinct hallucinations from real, psychic vision.
I can only speculate that the way to differ these two things is an ability to listen to your intuition closely. This way, your intuition and your spiritual guidance can help you separate hallucinations from legitimate psychic data.
I’ve spoke to few psychics who admitted that they can see things through their physical sight, and most aura view tutorials are based on teaching how to see things through your eyes. It’s safe for me to safe that it is possible to see things with your physical eyes.
My advice is simple, though. Do not expect that you will see things physically at first. Do not expect to see things with your inner sight, as well. Expectations might create additional blockages. Just practice, practice, practice. And keep an open mind. With time and practice, clairvoyance will develop.
The best way to understand how clairvoyance looks like is to provide you with some examples from my private practice.
I hope these few examples gives you a good understanding of clairvoyance. Let’s make a fast summary.
Clairvoyance is an interesting ability, but not everyone can learn it. Some people will prefer to use pure intuition and “knowing things” in their psychic work. Others might prefer to hear things, or use other psychic senses. Knowing things, and clairvoyance are just one of the most popular techniques of using your psychic abilities to acquire information.
Therefore, this is another thing that you need to know: do not struggle to learn clairvoyance. Like I said, develop your skills in gently way, practice the exercises like these provided by me on A State of Mind, and let things develop on their own. Once a psychic skill awakes, you can develop if further. But do not struggle to learn clairvoyance just because it’s popular and because everyone uses it. Let things develop on their own, because you might find out that your strongest psychic sense is clairaudience and that you can “hear” psychic information.
The only reason I can think of is this: clairvoyance is a popular technique, because we are visual people, mostly. Nancy Du Tertre explained this in her book nicely – Psychic Intuition. The very first sense that picks up the information is our sight – when something is far away, we can’t smell it, we can’t hear it, or taste it, or touch it. But we can already see it. And because our senses are dominated by our sight, clairvoyance is an obvious answer to “which psychic sense will dominate” question.
This rises an interesting question. Can a blind person learn clairvoyance? Can a deaf person learn clairaudience? Hmm… unfortunately, this is a question for you – if you know the answer. I do not know, simple because I never worked with blind or deaf person, who wanted to become psychic. Maybe in the future I will learn the answer. For now, it’s a question for you – do you know a blind clairvoyant?
