Can you visualize things easily? Do you enjoy daydreaming? Do you an innate appreciation of beauty? Hold on tight. You may just be clairvoyant.
What is clairvoyance?
Clairvoyance literally means ‘clear vision’. It’s the ability to read information about a person or predict future events using senses that are outside the senses of the physical realm (such as smell, touch, taste etc).
Clairvoyant information is predominately visual. So you will see images in your mind about people, places, and future events.
This is different to the other psychic senses:
Clairvoyance is not a new phenomenon – throughout history, the gift of clairvoyance has been attributed to religious leaders, shamans, and other spiritual leaders.
Almost all cultures and societies have myths and tales of people who were in possession of this gift, quite often describing these people as going into a trance when they delivered clairvoyant messages.
What’s more, clairvoyance is not an exclusive gift, reserved for the spiritual elite. Rather, it’s a natural human ability. Most children display clear signs of clairvoyance. And with enough practice, you too can re-engage with this psychic ability.

Is clairvoyance located in the brain?
The pineal gland that sits deep inside the brain is often credited with many psychic abilities. Philosophies and spiritual practices, such as yoga, New Age, and others attribute the ability to see through the ‘third eye’ to the pineal gland.
The third eye is often associated with being able to see things quite outside everyday human experience and therefore linked to clairvoyance.
10 signs that you possess clairvoyance
When people think of clairvoyance, they often imagine people with thoroughly developed abilities in ‘seeing things’.
You might be thinking of people who can communicate with the dead, see spirit guides, find missing people and locate lost objects easily.
But at this stage, your own abilities clairvoyance may be much more subtle than that. If you can strike one or more things on this list, then keep on reading to find out how you can develop your abilities further to become more clairvoyant.
- You’re able to visualize things easily.
Because clairvoyance has a lot to do with psychic vision, people in possession of it are good with visualizing things – and actually, enjoy doing it. If you’re clairvoyant, you should have no problems visualizing yourself on your next holiday or in a new job, and feel like you’re actually there.
- You’re drawn to a vocation that involves visually creative tasks
Perhaps you enjoy painting or just completing adult-colouring books. Equally, you may be drawn to visually-focused careers, such as being a landscaper, an interior designer etc.
- You have vivid and frequent dreams
Do you remember what you dreamt of last night? Was it a vivid dream, with lots of detail? It may be another sign that you’re clairvoyant.
- You used to have imaginary friends as a child
And maybe you still have them, if you’re someone who likes to write stories and invent characters. You’re not sure where they come from, but you can whip up entire stories with the characters’ biographies intact.
- Sometimes you get the funny feeling that a spirit is near you
You may not be able to see it, but you may have a feeling that a spirit has just entered your room. And if you really tried, you might even be able to see what they look like.
- You have a very vivid imagination when it comes to future events
Both good and bad scenarios play out in your head in the tiniest detail, to the point that you can feel the emotions that you’d feel in that situation. Sometimes it can give you a headache and lead to anxiety, but the fact remains that you have a vivid imagination – another sign of clairvoyance.
- You’re able to sense when a loved one is in trouble
It might hit you as a simple feeling of knowing, or it might be more like intense fear, but you can sense when someone you care about is in trouble, even if they’re not aware of it themselves yet.
- Hearing sounds
Rings, beeps and chimes are all sounds that you might be hearing when no one else is. Pay attention to them. These may be important signs that need interpreting.
- You see flashes, sparks or dots of light
This may be your psychic ability awakening – white, blue, green or purple are colours that are often linked with seeing angels.
- You’ve often seen shadows out of the corner of your eye
Even when no one else has been able to see them, you’ve had the funny sense that you can see a shadow or something moving out of the corner of your eye.

5 ways you can develop clairvoyance
There are a number of ways that can help you develop your psychic abilities.
Consistency is key here.
Think of the practice as building a strong core or a six-pack – you wouldn’t expect results straight away, would you? The same goes for clairvoyance.
Be patient and kind to yourself, especially when it comes to visualization techniques. You will improve with time and practice.
This is the first step to developing any psychic abilities.
Meditation will help you quiet down the mind, relax and become more perceptive. It will help you clear any blocks that may stand in the way of ‘clear seeing’.
There are a number of meditation techniques that you can try, from mindfulness practices to forgiveness and gratitude meditation. Visualization meditation is particularly useful for developing clairvoyance.
- Steer clear of negative energy
If you’re clairvoyant, you may already be quite sensitive towards negative energy. In order to develop your ability further, try to stay away from negative people who might bring their energy into your life. You need to keep your own energy free from such blocks.
- Engage and open your third eye chakra
Located between your eyebrows, the third-eye chakra has long been associated with clear seeing and intuition. Third eye meditation techniques are useful for developing this sense. You can also try this third-eye visualisation technique. Sit down, relax and try to focus on the spot between your eyebrows. Imagine the eyelid of your third eye slowly opening as you breathe in and out.
- Stimulate the pineal gland
Our body is just as able to perceive psychic messages as our mind is. Therefore, physical practices can help you develop your clairvoyance, especially those that stimulate the aforementioned pineal gland. Kundalini yoga and dance techniques that engage your chakras (such as ‘five rhythms’) are great for this.
- Develop claircognizance and clairaudience
Once you clear the mental blocks and become more receptive to clairvoyance, you might see visions, dreams and hear sounds more frequently. If this happens, you need to be able to interpret these messages. This is where the abilities of claircognizance and clairaudience come in play.
Read our previous blog post to find whether you possess claircognizance and tips on how to improve this ability.
