You’ve probably driven down the street and have seen a blinding neon sign flashing the word “psychic” in the window of a small building. Another sign beneath that reads “Clairvoyant Readings.” A shiver is sent down your spine as you’re reminded of all the Hollywood depictions of clairvoyance– dark imagery, spirits standing by your bed, and possessions. You’ve likely vowed to yourself to step foot in one of those buildings in life.
But here’s the thing, it’s quite likely that you’re actually clairvoyant! There’s nothing to fear!
Now I’m not talking about having psychic abilities the way Hollywood depicts them, because the Hollywood depictions are highly inaccurate and are there solely for entertainment (and production) purposes.
But there is a high possibility that if not now, at one point in your life, you were open to your clairvoyant abilities.
Being clairvoyant doesn’t have to be scary…
What Does Clairvoyance Mean?
We are all born with psychic abilities, but as we grow into life in the third dimension we often block our natural intuitive gifts. Clairvoyance is one of the most common of the many heightened senses you can experience being psychic or intuitive.
“Clair-” translates from French to “clear” and “-voyance” to “seeing.” Being clairvoyant speaks to one’s ability to see through their third or mind’s eye. Clairvoyance is just one you can communicate with your guides, Ascended Masters, loved ones, and Archangels in this dimension.
So How Do I Know If I’m Clairvoyant?
There are many ways to determine if you are clairvoyant. But if you can relate to at least one of the things on this list, it’s likely you are clairvoyant!
1. You could be clairvoyant if you see flashes of color, light, and shadow.
When you are around others, you begin to see colors or white light surrounding the energetic field of the body. Bearing witness to these colors and lights can indicate an ability to see the energetic aura. Even if you don’t understand what it means, being able to see auras is a psychic ability that many clairvoyants possess.
When you see light or orbs you could be catching a glimpse of Archangels or other light beings. If you have experienced these occurrences, it’s also probably likely that you may see spirit shadows in your peripheral vision. When this happens, you shouldn’t be scared. Allow yourself to visualize white light surrounding you so that nothing negative can harm you. The entertainment industry has instilled so much fear into us by drastically dramatizing the phenomenon of seeing spirits by making it seem scary. Most spirits are friendly and just wanting to say, “hi.”
Transfigurations are one of my personal favorite clairvoyant phenomena! Sometimes when I’m having a conversation with someone their face will begin to “transfigure” or morph into something else. Sometimes I will see deceased loved ones come through in the transfiguration or see their faces change into a past life they lived.
2. You are easily able to visualize experiences, situations, movie scenes, and more.
Have you ever sat in a guided meditation where the facilitator says, “now begin to visualize a luscious green forest” and you are able to imagine the most beautiful scene in your mind’s eye? This could likely be a sign that you are clairvoyant. Your visualization abilities are also an indicator of an active third eye– one that wants to be used to share messages from source wisdom.
Clairvoyant communication happens directly in the third or mind’s eye and feels surreal–– as if you are watching a movie being projected in your mind.
When beginning your journey of tapping into your clairvoyance, these images and symbols may not be very clear, but with practice, they will grow clearer. You will begin to develop a secret language with your guides that will help you decipher the messages you are receiving.
3. You often have vivid dreams or daydreams.
Whether you want to believe you are clairvoyant or not, we all have the ability to tap into our psychic gifts. One of the easiest ways to pay attention to the clairvoyant messages you receive is through your dreams. When you sleep you enter the astral realm. In the astral realm, you enter into a state of surrender where you are open to receiving any messages you need to hear. This occurs because you enter a different dimension, making it easier for you to connect with the unknown as well as your subconscious and unconscious mind. If you having vivid dreams, start journaling on them to see what clairvoyant messages are coming through for you.
4. Clairvoyant individuals have a vivid or “overactive” imaginations.
I remember teachers telling me as a child that I had quite an overactive imagination. I always had my head in the cloud and was constantly creating. I was able to come up with crazy, elaborate, and well-thought-out stories (but perhaps that’s just a quality of being triple air— Libra Sun, Gemini Moon, and Gemini Ascendant). I often spoke about faeries and all things mystical. What people didn’t realize was that I was already tapping into my clairvoyant gifts— noticing the world beyond the third dimension and allowing quantum life to enter my consciousness.
The imaginary friend you had growing up was likely your spirit guide helping you and guiding you! If you had more than one, you had a team of guides providing you with their wisdom. This can indicate your connectedness to your intuition, but if you actually saw your imaginary friend in the physical, you tapped into your clairvoyance!
5. If you find yourself saying “I see you” when relating with others, you could be clairvoyant.
One of the easiest ways to know if you are clairvoyant is by paying attention to what you say when you relate to others. When you are in conversation with someone and they say something that resonates with you, you might find yourself saying, “I see you!” You see the person and what they are feeling. You understand on a soul level their experience. Now if you don’t say this, it doesn’t mean that you aren’t clairvoyant. You might even say “I feel you” or “I hear you” which indicate different clair gifts altogether.
As you move throughout life, tune into yourself and pay attention to these 5 signs that could indicate your clairvoyance! It’s likely that you already have experienced one or all of these traits!
