There are four main ways to receive intuitive information. Clairvoyance is an enhanced development of our natural ‘sixth sense’, which is our ability to know things even when they are not obvious and to understand things we have never learned. Clairvoyants receive information visually. Most people call this a third eye, or second sight.
You can also receive intuitive information by:
• clear hearing or the auditory channel – clairaudience
• clear feeling – clairsentience
• gut feelings/clear knowing – claircognizance
Is a psychic and a clairvoyant the same?
No. This is one of the misconceptions about psychics. Over the years, people started used to interchange these terms sometimes, but they are definitely not the same. Other psychics are not clairvoyant at all so we can say that it’s aspecial psychic power. They receive their intuitive information in other ways. Take note that there are four ways to receive intuitive information, and clear seeing is just one of them.
Do clairvoyants really have a third eye?
Not really. At times clairvoyants will have a view that is like they are watching a movie inside their mind. Sometimes, they can see an image in their mind’s eye.
In addition, it’s very important to know that what they are seeing are not always literal – oftentimes they are symbolic.
Let me give you an example:
Let’s say someone asks me for a reading – let me call her Mandy. She is currently planning to get married next month.
I probably will not “see” Mandy walking down the aisle. What I may see is an image of white flowers, a wedding ring, a church, or some other thing that symbolizes wedding to me.
Other clairvoyants may see something else, something that symbolizes wedding to them. Some may actually foresee Mandy walking down the aisle.
What is the third eye?
The Third Eye is directly related to the 6th chakra — the psychic chakra, located on the middle of the forehead above the brows. It is closely associated with the “pineal” gland. The pineal gland is dormant in most people, as is the true Third Eye.
It’s called the “Mind’s Eye” because you are seeing these visions in your mind.
Can I open my third eye?
Yes, you can! All you need is to have an easy meditation to start off, you don’t need to be a professional psychic. Opening your third eye is the best way to increase your intuition.
What’s it like to have a vision?
Honestly speaking, it sometimes doesn’t feel real. There wasn’t any feeling other than a sudden “knowing” something just came out of nowhere really.
Some people may just see a still image while others tell that it like watching moving pictures in their minds eye – like watching your own personal tv! In my case, I can see things in both ways depending on what type of reading I’m conducting or what I’m doing.
Sometimes I see pictures in motion, which is a lot of fun. Other times, I may just see images which are literal or symbolic.
Do third eye visions foresee the future?
Not at all times. Oftentimes, especially during readings, psychics will get pictures of events in the present time, something that is happening right now. They may also see things from the past that are affecting the present.
Going back to seeing the future, the third eye can sometimes foresee it. One woman I know reported getting a psychic flash moment before a minor auto accident. Luckily, everyone was okay.
Is the Third Eye the same as what I see in the movies?
Have you ever watched a movie where a psychic:
- is seeing intense images of a future event?
- locates a missing person by following a vision?
I’ve watched these stories too, and I always think, “I wish it were that easy!”
Unfortunately, it’s not that as easy as you can imagine. In fictional images, you will always see things as crystal clear. But always remember, that in real life, there can be a lot of symbolism, and it is much more subtle.
