Becoming clairvoyant (or developing any of the “clairs” that improve intuitive ability) is fun and easier than you might think.
But just like with anything new, it takes some practice and patience to get the hang of it.
Do you think you could get a smokin’, ripped hot body overnight and without doing any work? If only! It’s the same with developing your psychic skills.
Building your “psychic muscles” is a process, just like working out. But, in my opinion, it’s waaaay more fun!
BTW, this is the third in our series on clairvoyance. If you’d like to learn the basics about psychic sight – like how it really works and why you probably won’t see a Spirit sitting on your couch sipping a latte, read this post and then come back here :) If you’re wondering if you are clairvoyant, read the signs here.
First things first. I’m going to get mushy for a minute. (Cue dramatic movie music…)
This is an exciting journey for sure. But remember to be super kind and tolerant with yourself. If you aren’t seeing the progress you would like, just stick with it. It will happen!
The most important thing is that we get the ball rolling and build up some momentum. Ready, let’s do this!
Becoming Clairvoyant: 6 Ways to Increase Psychic Seeing
1. Practice Visualization
Clairvoyants have strong visualization abilities.
Soooo, it is really helpful to spend time on becoming a super visualizer. The more often you practice this skill, the easier it will become.
Remember, the “seeing” clairvoyants have is usually in their minds eye – through their third eye – the chakra located just above and between your eyebrows.
In other words, the visions, pictures, and symbols you see are “in your head”.
It’s easier to receive clairvoyant images when your third eye chakra is open. That’s why spending time opening it is helpful.
Spend a few minutes each day visualizing different images, pictures, and scenes in your minds eye is a really fun and relaxing way to develop clairvoyance.
Imagine you are rockin’ a concert with Adele. Or walking through the Downton Abbey mansion. Perhaps you’re on a picnic with Mark Wahlberg. Visualize your dreamy scene with the intent of opening the third eye chakra and improving your clairvoyant abilities.
Visualize with Numbers and Flowers
Close your eyes. Imagine the number one in your mind. When you can hold the image for 10 seconds, move onto the number 2, then 3, etc., all the way to 10.
Having trouble? Get some arts and crafts supplies and draw a big ole number one on a piece of paper. Go wild and make it creative. Cover it with glitter! Color it yellow and add black stripes! Stare at the awesome picture you just created for 30 seconds or so… THEN close your eyes and try the exercise. This will give you an image to start with.
2. Play a Clairvoyant Game
Clairvoyant Game #1
Do you remember playing the game Memory as a child? You know, the game where you place all of the cards face down, then flip over one at a time, trying to make matches?
Memory is an excellent game to play to help become more clairvoyant. As you are playing, try “seeing” in your mind’s eye where each card is.
Clairvoyant Game #2
Here’s another fun clairvoyant game. Have a friend place 10 random items on your kitchen table (make sure you leave the room while she’s setting up).
When she’s done, walk back into the room. Study the items for 10-20 seconds.
Now close your eyes and imagine each of the items. Practice seeing in your mind’s eye where each item is located. Its size. Its color.
Write all of the objects down, in as much detail as possible. Open your eyes, look at the table, and see how you did.
You can also do this exercise when you are alone. If you’re sitting on a park bench or in a coffee shop, study your surroundings for a moment. Then, close your eyes and visualize your surroundings, seeing as much detail as possible.
Clairvoyant Game #3
This is a REALLY fun way to increase clairvoyant abilities. Pick up a pack of Zener cards .
Practice telepathically sending and receiving Zener card images to a friend.
I did this with a partner years ago in a psychic development group. We were able to get 100% correct. It was AMAZING!
3. Use Crystals to Open the Third Eye
Crystals are a GREAT way to open your third eye chakra. Place them near you when you meditate or lay them near your forehead when you go to sleep.
You can also carry them in your pocket. This will help remind you of your intention to develop your clairvoyance throughout the day. Plus, crystals are just fun to carry. Period.
Both lapis lazuli and clear quartz crystal are known for their abilities to open the third eye.
4. Keep a Dream Journal
Clairvoyant people often experience vivid dreams. Working with your dreams is a cool way to become clairvoyant. Plus, it’s practically effortless!
Why dreams? Our Spirit Guides, angels and loved ones in heaven communicate with us through dreams. When we sleep, our logical minds rest and our subconscious mind can freely accept the spiritual guidance that we would normally ignore or overlook.
Sleep time becomes “play time” for us as we astral travel and connect with Spirit (what else is our soul going to do while our body sleeps?).
Keep your journal next to your bed to record your dreams as soon as you wake up. After a while, you may start to notice patterns and symbols that are meaningful to you. You may even remember a past life! Super fun, I know!
Keeping a dream journal will also help you see how your clairvoyance is evolving. There’s no better motivation and inspiration than “seeing” how far you’ve come.
5. Set the Intention to Receive Guidance Through Your Dreams
Have you ever had your mom give you advice when you didn’t ask? :) Well, your Spiritual family is also THRILLED to supply you with the direction you need.
They always help for the highest and best good of your soul. Simply set the intention that you’re open to receiving intuitive guidance. Ask that they give you messages via your clairvoyance while you sleep. Don’t forget to write down the messages when you wake up.
You’ve probably heard this a BAJILLION times, but meditation is essential to developing any of your psychic gifts. Why? It clears your mind, raises your vibration (which is how we can detect subtle Spirit energy), and gets you out of your logical mind.
Meditation, like visualization opens your third eye. All mediation improves your mind’s eye ability to see, but you can also mediate specifically with the intention to become clairvoyant. And you can do it in just a few minutes a day.
Meditation to Open the Third Eye I
Get into a comfortable position, close your eyes and take a few deep breaths, getting settled in your body. Once you feel stable, practice seeing the face of a loved one in your mind’s eye. Look closely. Imagine their laugh lines, dimples, all of it!
Meditation to Open the Third Eye II
Get comfy, close your eyes, and take a few deep breaths. Set the intention to expand your clairvoyant abilities. Focus your attention on your third eye chakra.
Imagine the chakra in a majestic purple color, spinning beautifully, signifying it’s wide open.
You will probably experience slight tingling between your eyebrows.
This is normal and a sign that your third eye area is opening, further allowing your clairvoyant gifts to flourish. Yay!
Are you ready to rock clairvoyance?
You might have trouble trusting the messages you receive through clairvoyance at first, and that’s OK. We’ve been raised to trust only in things that are logical and tangible, so it may take a little while to feel fully trusting. Give yourself some grace :)
And keep in mind that your Spiritual team has only your highest good at heart, and you can trust in them to safely guide you.
If you need a change from clairvoyant exercises, you can always work on some of the other clairs first. This should be a fun process, and never stressful. Remember to have fun!
