What if all My Psychic Gifts Don’t Open?

Community member Ellen reached out and asked a great question about psychic gifts opening.

She said, “Hi Jessica, I’ve been working on opening my psychic abilities for about a year, but I’m having trouble opening all my clairs.  I’m afraid I’ll never be able to give readings because I don’t have all the clairs.  What should I do?”

Oh Ellen, you are such a sweet soul!  Let’s grab a cup of herbal tea and have a chat.

You don’t need to have EVERY clair to be an intuitive reader or medium.  You can still help people even if you only have ONE of the clairs.

Also, it’s normal to have one or two dominant psychic abilities.

For example, when I give a reading, about 90% of the information I get comes through my clairaudience and clairsentience.  Only about 10% is in images (clairvoyance).

And, your other clairs might open up later in your journey.

Communication with the Divine can happen in all different ways

If your clairsentience is weak, you may not get a sense of a birthday or celebration, but you might:

  • Hear the happy birthday song. (clairaudience)
  • Have a knowing of a birthday.  It may feel like this information was downloaded to you. (claircognizance)
  • See a birthday cake in your mind’s eye. (clairvoyance)
  • Smell a freshly baked birthday cake. (clairalience)

If Spirit wants to communicate that they passed of a heart attack:

  • You may hear words associated with a heart-attack, such as “clogged artery”. (clairaudience)
  • You may feel a twinge in your chest. (clairsentience)
  • In your mind’s eye, you may see a damaged heart. (clairvoyance)

Don’t Sweat it if All Your Clairs Aren’t Strong

There are more ways to receive intuitive information than there are lipstick shades in Kim Kardashian’s closet (well, maybe not that many).

If your only psychic ability was clairvoyance, you’d still be able to give readings and help SO many people!

The most important thing is to understand how YOUR abilities work – how do YOU receive information?  Remember, all psychics and mediums work a little bit differently.

Start taking notice of the unique way in which your gifts work.

  1. Thanks for this interesting education! I had no idea there were so many forms of communication with the Divine! I will be much more aware to things I’ve feeling & sensing from now on!

    1. Thank you for the comment, Tae. I know you’ll have a lot of fun sensing ALL the ways in which the Divine connect with us. <3

  2. I haven’t noticed any clairs at all in myself yet, at 43 years of age. And it’s not for lack of spiritual exploration. I do have a strong intuition, which I use for my readings.

    1. I think your comment is a perfect example of what I am trying to get across in this post. I hope it inspires others to work with the gifts they have <3 Thank you so much!

  3. This is such an important post, and one that I think could be applied to not just different psychic gifts, but different modalities as well. Too often, I see people focused on learning to be psychic and learning Tarot and needing to learn to read Akashic Records, and learning Reiki, and on and on…

    It’s too much! It’s time to get out of learning mode and help people with the Gifts you have now, in whatever way they come through to you. Thank you for the reminder.

    1. YES that is SO true. We definitely can apply this philosophy to any modality. “It’s time to get out of learning mode and help people with the Gifts you have now…” I LOVE that! So true! Thank you for the comment :)

  4. Jessica, I adore your commonsense approach to this ‘woo woo topic.’ It’s great that you make it real, and support each person in their own unique way of knowing and their own gifts to share. You rock! xox, Reba

  5. Thank you so much for this interesting post. I learn a few things I never knew!! I had no idea there were so many forms of communication with the Divine, but now I know! Thanks for that!

  6. This has all been helpful! I’m from a small town and so these things are not talked about. I’ve heard the terminology before but didn’t look into it much. I know now I’m more clairvoyant. I have done it a few times and it’s like a movie playing in my mind. I’ve spent a lot of time blocking it out. But recently feel I need to embrace it and develop it, so I can learn to control it. Because sometimes when it happens it’s so clear I’m not sure if its reality or a “vision”. That’s what I’ve called it thus far
    Thank you!

    1. You’re welcome, Stacy. The nice thing about the internet is that we are no longer isolated by being in small towns. Yay! Sounds like you are doing great :)

  7. I have all the clairs, though I think being able to sense is my most dominant one, though all the others seem to be just as high up. My only problem is that I can’t seem to hone in on any specific clair. I have a lot of trouble concentrating and keeping myself focused long enough to strengthen these abilities. Do you have any advice for this?

      Hi Gina, thanks for reaching out! That is wonderful that all of the clair information resonates with you! If you have the intention to strengthen your clairs, trust that they will develop and unfold just as they should. In the mean time, practice some exercises if you feel guided. Meditation is also great! Hope this helps <3
