How to Develop Clairvoyance

In this article I discuss what clairvoyance is exactly and also how to develop clairvoyance.

Clairvoyance means ‘clear-seeing’. Almost everyone knows what clairvoyance is – it’s the ability to see Spirit through your third eye. Clairvoyants can see energy fields, spirits, symbols and get visual premonitions. Developing clairvoyance isn’t difficult – in this article, I give you some pointers to do this.

Some clairvoyants see things in their mind’s eye and some can see with their physical eyes. Both are possible, but it’s more common to see in the mind’s eye. Whereas a clairsentient might look at your photo and pick up on your feelings and emotions, a clairvoyant would probably see your aura, the essence of your spirit and Spirit Guides or Angels around you. When reading a situation, a clairvoyant may see a symbol or a movie-scene which is a metaphor for the situation.

Receiving clairvoyant images is one thing, but not all clairvoyants are gifted at interpreting what they see. To interpret a vision or symbol, you need to use your claircognizance or clairaudience as well.

I’ve written articles on the three other major psychic gifts: Clairaudience, Clairsentience, and Claircognizance. The reason why I didn’t write an article about clairvoyance sooner is because it is really not a common psychic gift.

On the other hand, I felt really compelled to write about claircognizance and clairsentience because they are so common and the people who have these gifts often do not know that they even constitute gifts which can be developed. By contrast, in my mini-readings, I’ve only read for about ten people who have been natural clairvoyants (that’s about ten people out of 350) and most of those people knew about their clairvoyant abilities. I guess this rare factor could be why clairvoyance is thought of as THE psychic gift to have, because it’s more exclusive somehow.

Why Most People Don’t Need Clairvoyant Gifts

Are clairvoyant abilities better than the other psychic gifts, like clairaudience or clairsentience?

I don’t think so. All the intuitive vehicles are meant to work together. In fact, I’d say that clairvoyance is not always needed, unless you’re a medium.

On the other hand, most people need some clairsentience, to pick up vibes from people. Some clairaudience or claircognizance is helpful as well, to get quick warnings from your guides or Higher Self, like ‘run!’ or ‘don’t take that road’. But I can’t think of any situations where clairvoyant abilities are absolutely essential in everyday life, unless you do psychic/mediumship readings in your work. I personally do not use clairvoyance in my work much. I do sometimes ‘see’ clients’ past lives, but when I need to know details about a situation, my guides will tend to just put the information into my brain, rather than sending me symbols or metaphors or images.

How to Develop your Clairvoyant Abilities

Even if you’re not a natural clairvoyant, you can still develop your clairvoyance. Flexing my clairvoyant muscles was the first thing I did when I started developing psychically. I picked up a good book called Psychic Development for Beginners by William Hewitt and began using his exercises to open up my third eye (the exercise is below.)

I have to say that the below exercise opened up my third eye (the centre of clairvoyant abilities) quite spectacularly for a few days, then I got scared and shut it down again! I started to see my guides in my mind’s eye, and I saw things moving in the corner of my eye. I also saw coloured lights around people and I began to have really strange and vivid dreams, in colour. I wasn’t used to seeing so much, and it was overwhelming for me.

An Exercise for Developing Clairvoyance

The exercise is this: visualize yourself holding seven balloons, of the colours red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet and indigo. Let the balloons go one by one, beginning with the red balloon. Watch them float up to the blue sky until they disappear before you release the next one.

If you’re not used to visualizing, then this exercise could be quite difficult for you at first. You may find it hard to concentrate or it may be difficult for you to visualize vividly or in colour – it all depends on how developed your imagination muscles are.

Any activity which uses your visual imagination is good for strengthening clairvoyant abilities, because your imagination is the tool that Spirit uses to send you information, in the form of images. The more well-oiled your ‘imagination cogs’ are, the easier it is for spirit to send you clear images.

Here’s another way to open up your clairvoyance: Imagine a third eye, between your eyebrows. Visualize the eyelid on your third eye opening up. All visualization does is set an intention to do something. If you visualize this regularly, you’re putting energy behind your intention to open up your third eye, the centre of your clairvoyant abilities.

Differentiating Between Imagination and Intuition

So, how can you tell the difference between what’s from your imagination and what’s from Spirit?

When you receive an image from Spirit, you are not in control. You are not creating the image – it just appears in your mind’s eye without any active participation from you.

Blocks to Clairvoyance

A few people who are natural clairvoyants never see any evidence of their gift. When this happens, it usually means there is a blockage or an energy leak at the third eye chakra. At the bottom of this there tends to be some trauma caused by having ‘seen’ something unexpected or unpleasant.

There are two reasons why I personally did not use to put much effort into developing my clairvoyant abilities further: one is that I felt I didn’t need it too much for my work and the second is that I didn’t really want to see, because I had a scary experience in the past.

When I was about five or six years old, I was playing in my bed late at night. I looked up and saw a woman standing in the corner of my room by the door, staring at me – just writing about it gives me the creeps. I have never been more frightened in my life than at that moment. All I can remember is pulling the covers over my head and hoping she’d go away. I remember my heart beating so fast that I thought it would burst! I think I decided at that point that seeing spirits sucked and it took a lot of time and some healing before my clairvoyance developed properly.

A lot of people have a blockage like this, due to some sort of frightening psychic experience. If this applies to you and you can locate or remember what is blocking your third eye, use my angelic healing exercise (method # 3) in this article: ‘Four Ways to Heal Yourself’ – it really works!

Any general blocks to truth can also affect your clairvoyance (and the overall state of your intuitive faculties). For example, if you live your life in a state of denial or falsehood, your clairvoyance will be weakened. If you want to have strong intuition, get into the habit of facing up to the truth in your life, if you’re not already. If you kid yourself about something on a regular basis, it weakens your trust in your own perceptions and intuition and this will affect your clairvoyant abilities.

Further Tips:

Place a lapis lazuli or clear quartz crystal over your third eye chakra, or go into a crystal shop with the intention of finding the right crystal to help you to open up your third eye. You may feel really drawn to one crystal in particular which can help you.

When you’re working with your clairvoyance at first, it can also help to close your eyes and use your mind’s eye rather than expecting to see things straight away with your physical eyes.

Use the affirmation “I am profoundly clairvoyant. It is safe for me to see”

Release and heal whatever fears/trauma you have around seeing spirits.

    Hi Anna,

    Thank you so much for this article!
    I found it quite helpful.
    :-)

  2. I can definitely understand being freaked out by seeing things you don’t want to see. Think Haley Joel Osment in “The Sixth Sense.” If that’s what it’s like, the other clairs sound better to me!

  3. Cath Lawson says:

    Hi Anna – It gave me the creeps just reading your description of the woman in the corner of the room.

    These are good exercises to try. I was using a book on developing my psychic ability a few years ago. But there were many different time consuming exercises and I just got too busy doing other things. Maybe I’ll give it another try.

    A few years ago, I visited a psychic with a friend. The psychic told me I should avoid the friend I’d visited with, or she would cause me serious harm. I laughed it off and didn’t really think about it again. But a few years later, that girl and others did me really serious harm. I wasn’t able to work again for years.

    I tried to contact the psychic again but she’d stopped doing readings due to ill health. And I’d really like to develop my own abilities. It would be nice to avoid bad situations like the one mentioned in the future.

  4. Anna says:

    @ Lily – you’re welcome! I’m glad it was helpful for you.

    @ Hunter – Yeah, I kind of agree. Although I have had mediumistic experiences (contact with dead people) and it’s not nearly as scary as it comes across in movies.

    @ Cath – Welcome to my blog! The great thing about psychic abilities is that you can often see those things coming up. I’ve similarly been given advice in the past by other psychics, not listened to it and suffered the consequences. But then again, I’ve also been told other things which did not come true. I guess you just have to go with your own gut in the end.

  6. Anna says:

    Hi Angelroses! Welcome to my blog and glad you liked the article.

    Really good read, nice to read a good blog at last!

  8. Lilian says:

    Hi Anna
    Thanks for your reading and this article. After reading abt your experience seeing spirits – I think I will be afraid too if I see spirits. Not sure if I should develop my clairvoyance gifts after all.

  9. Anna says:

    Hi Lilian – don’t be put off by my experiences! I would never have said this two years ago but spirits really are nothing to be feared. I mean, we are Spirits as much as we are physical beings, and we aren’t scared of ourselves!! :D

  10. Amber says:

    I just read your article, and well to be honest I am just glad I am not the only person who has this gift. I often feel crazy which might be why I can’t control it or strengthen it. I have dreams, what I refer to as true dreams, and when I deam them I know hey will come true there is no doubt about that in my mind. i also have very serious deja vu’s so serious that i can concentrate on them and predict what will happen at that moment. I do not see spirits, but I do see the future, and I have a very strong intuition. I think I might be Clairvoyant but i do not know for sure. i would love some more tips or reading material to help me tune in on this bizare gift. And really to make sure i am not the only one. I didnt ask for this gift but since i have it I would like to know what it is and how to use it.

  11. Zeke says:

    Hey.. I was talking to my mother a few years ago and she commented about me talking to my dead grandfather when i was a child. She didnt give me any details but it caught my interest… Since she told me that I’ve just been paying a lot more attention to my surroundings and I notice figures and hear things that my friends and family dont. For instance, i was walking down the road with my friend one day and i heard a really quiet scream. I heard him if he heard anything, he said no. We continued walking and a little while later I heard it again. He again denied hearing it. I told him about what my mother said and we got into this really deep conversation about clairvoyance and all this other stuff. He taught me a lot that day. Near the end of the conversation he said “Those who cant do, teach.”

  12. Mini says:

    Thanks very much. I have been searching how to develop my psychic abilities. My freind who is a clairvoyant says i have the ability. but i dont see things.. i would like to develop so that i could help many people..

  13. Anna says:

    Mini, Zeke, Amber – Thanks for your comments! Mini and Amber – I’ll be publishing a post soon on useful products/books for developing each clair.

  14. karen says:

    Hi
    I found your site very interesting, I also work as a clairvoyant, will try your exercises to help open me up again, as for some reason yet to understand I am panicking on doing readings and it is something i have done for 20 years plus and just I thinking lacking belief in myself. I will let you know how i get on with the exercises.
    x

  15. Anna says:

    Hi Karen, Hope that exercise helps in some way. Have you read this article of mine: http://www.psychicbutsane.com/blogs/when-you-have-trouble-believing-in-psychic-abilities

    It’s about self-doubt and psychic abilities, some of it might be applicable to you. Good luck! x

  16. Jan Harper says:

    Really interesting article. Lots to think about here. The exercises are very good and they do a lot to get rid of all that self doubt that we all get at times.

  17. madimaid says:

    I have found this website and read about clairvoyance and i read some other articles and i have notice when i did the quiz that for clairvoyance that all of them were yes and almost all of them were yeses on all the other quizzes i was just wondering what does that mean. also i have been practice my development and i have noticed that the exercises make me very relaxed and i don’t know exactly how it makes me feel is that normal i am totally new with that

  18. Nina says:

    I tried the 7 colored balloon exercises, and the results were freaky. Here’s what happened to the 7 balloons:
    red = remained intact till it reached outer space and got sucked by a black hole
    orange = flew too quickly to the stratosphere till it popped and got burnt
    yellow = a bird flew through it; its beak pierced the balloon
    green = an archer must’ve shot the arrow straight into the balloon and it burst
    blue = a cat pounced on it and its claws pierced it
    violet = a child got hold of the balloon and kept it in the house
    indigo = it flew and traveled to many places till it got caught in the middle of a tropical storm and lightning struck it

    All balloons burst while floating in the air. This is so creepy…

  19. crystal says:

    hi I was reading your blog and I found your site the most explainable I am just trying to figure out exactly what I have like so many crazy things have happened that I went to a psychic and right away she said that I had a sixth sense. Like my dreams come true but I dont realize it until it happens and I had bad insomnia and I would say the craziest things just to put me to sleep and those exact words would come out of someone else’s mouth and I could be somewhere and many times I would just get a horrible bad feeling and have my friends leave with me and something came up such as my dad had cut himself at work and went to the hospital and then my dad was in an accident and the list goes on its just crazy. I’m extremely intuitive deja vu constantly but when I want I can never get to see things they just come to me and I can’t really predict things The most craziests things were the poems I used to make up just to put me to sleep and they would be like 2 minutes long and for them to come out of someones else blew me away. So thank you I am going to try these exercises but I do not want to see any ghosts it will freak me out. thank you

  20. Daniel says:

    wow, if I saw a woman standing in the corner of my room, unless it was paris hilton naked, i’d be scared too. Anyway, you gave me a good input on how learning to visualize important is. thanks

  21. Jon says:

    Hi Anna,

    Thanks for the tips. I have recently started seeing colours around people… and even a dog without trying anything or even thinking too much spiritually. Its like a fog, but as soon as i convince myself it’s nothing or i get freaked out it goes away. Anyways its hard for me to accept but it has given me information about people which has been correct and i am trying to completely accept the fact that im not nuts and its real.
    The part where you said clairvoyance can even show you a ‘movie scene as a metaphor’… well i had one of those for the first time in my life which was when i was 100% awake and it served as a warning, which made a lot of sense a few months later!
    Anyways it has kinda died off all of a sudden and I think it is because of my environment, not a negative one but not a spiritual one either, so i am gonna give your exercises a try. Thank you. If you have any other resources you can point me to I would appreciate it as well.
    Thanks again,

    Jon

  22. geert says:

    Such a beautiful post, thank you so much for this.
    Yes, I too am clairvoyant. Sometimes I get really vivid images in my mind’s eye. So incredible vivid and bright that it’s almost as if they are not possible to exist in the material world. I am grateful for this gift and I’m following these images more and more, trusting my visions and seeing where they lead, where they take me. Sometimes I see things when I was meditating with others, the things we were all experiencing, yet I see them in my mind. I am grateful for having this gift. Thank you once again for this blog, it’s been a great help, be blessed with love and light, namaste.

  23. Rozelyn says:

    Hi Anna,

    You are right about blockages. Clairvoyance runs in my family. Seeing and talking to spirits were the norm in my family. I was a weird, quiet kid, with a huge imagination for the most part.

    During my childhood, my dad struggled with alcoholism. He would bring negative earthbound spirits into our home. They would taunt me terribly at night and that lasted until I was thirteen. I actually have been pulled from my bed while sleeping. I remember praying to God to take the vision away. It did not go away, but I felt more protected. That changed when I started working uniform patrol and stopped praying for protection (That’s a story for another time).

    Now, my relationship and love for God is stronger. I have been able to build a connection with angelic beings, my spirit guides, and my ancestors. I have love and light with me always. I know I have Archangel Michael and other angels ready to clear my area of any negative energy. I also tell them to leave when I feel any negativity. My intuition has grown stronger.

  24. If Quartz is used on the third eye/forehead it should be cleared or cleansed first. I am sure that you are aware that quartz is a recorder and since it records all psychic info it may have negative energy in it. Awesome article though! thank you :)

    PS their are many ways to cleanse or clear crystals. you can run pure water over it until you feel that it is cleansed. It helps to put a little unprocessed salt or sea salt in the water. You can also use burn sage and either waft the smoke over the crystal while asking spirit/source/God and or your guide to cleanse it. You can also hold the crystal over the smoke… all that matters is that the the crystal is fully covered in the smoke. :)

  25. nisha says:

    Hi Anna,

    Can I ask you if you know how to develop psychokinesis and reading minds? tnx Anna you helped a lot of people,these exercise are really helpful..:)

  26. Kat says:

    Hi Anna!

    Great advice! I’d like to add that seeing spirits is an amazing gift as long as you are put off by it. It actually takes a lot of courage when you’re just starting out. I was most scared of hearing spirits but I’m working on that now since my clairaudience has weakened due to this fear.

    I have clairvoyance abilities, and can mostly see in my mind’s eye but I can also physically see tiny white lights when I speak or connect with Spirits. It’s a beautiful experience! So, don’t be scared of it. It can actually be a great healing experience…especially if you’re grieving (that’s who I started developing due to grief).

    I’d say affirm that you want to see Spirits in the light and that they show in a way that does not scare you. I did this with my clairaudience and my Spirit Guide started speaking inside my head more than outside. I could hear him say my name outloud! And, you know, I wish it came back again!

    Blessings to you Anna and all readers :)

    Hi Anna

    i found your blog inspirational, i once was told by a psychic that i would be able to see my grandad who had passed then i would be able to “see” ghosts and everyhing. That freaked me out and i told myself she doesnt know whats shes talking about. Then i had an experience with my mate where we “thought” we seen a demon crawling on a fence. The weird thing was we both didnt say what we saw too each other, we just said we’ll tell my sunty by ourselves so we dont confuse each or just go along with each others stories. And we both saw it which is weird not with our eyes though like in our heads. Other than that i havent had an experience since then but i do want to develop my clairvoyance which why i found your blog inspiring.
    Thanks aLot!! =)

    Cheers!!!

    hi im jason ,i regulary see blue purple and green tiny orbs just at the side view of what i am looking at and as long as i dont move my eyes they will stay there ,i live with my partner and daughter,my partner once had an clarevoyant round for her a reading as she was getting a smell of body odour now and again in the same area .before he came round i dont no how or why but an image of an old man would come to me pulling himself up out of a chair using a stick ..and also would wake through the night seeming like a child was nudgeing me and running off giggling ..like playing a game..anyway when the clarevoyent had been he more or less said what i experienced and found it really weired , the very first time i noticed any thing this weired was when i was 15 years old ,my 17 year old brother was killed ,when the ploice arrived to tell my mum ,i knew he was dead and thats what they had come to tell my mum ..this was 25 years ago now by the way..nothing about the weired stuff scares me but would love to no if this kind of stuff happens to every one .sorry if i sound a bit weired but i have never talked to any one about this …thanks for reading …..jason…..

  29. ethan says:

    At the height of my religious days god, or the universe, whatever you want to call it, opened up my eyes and ears to such a capacity that I could not stop nor control anything I would see or hear. I found myseof completly incapable of functioning at all. I couldn’t even sleep. Just constant visions of past present future bombarded my brain with no pauses. It was both terrifying and excitingly joyous. I have a terribly powerful gifting when it comes to clairaudience and clairvoyance, however I was not ready nor did I undersand when these things opened up to me as to what they were. It was gods way of getting me out of the church. I have seen thru your article as to why now I cannot seem to open these gifts up again. I have subconciously thrown up fear based blockages which are inhibiting my gifts. I thought and was told I was just insane but a half year after this experience I began again to see subtle signs of psychic ability. I have been trying to develop them back for the last 6months but now that I have identified my blockages thru your help anna, I feel as though it will all come much easier. Love the site name btw. Peace

  30. tracy says:

    Hi, I think that I used to see things. It was either that or it was my imagination that scared me. My family strongly believes in the spiritual world. Growing up I don’t know if I made all those stuff up or if I really did see them. We’ve moved around a lot but I always got the feeling like there were certain parts of the houses that were haunted or it scared me to go near. For the first time I’m living in a house that I feel I could go anywhere and not be afraid. I’d become scare when it gets darker for some reason. I’m afraid to be alone in the dark. I don’t know if it has anything to do with it but I have nocturnal seizures and I think I used to have a lot of nightmares about dogs. I remember one time I was awaken from sleep paralysis because I opened my eyes and saw a giant wolf jumping on top of me. That is something I will never forget. sorry about the long winded post. Thanks for the nice tips in your article. Even though I am also scare of what I might see I feel like this is something I have to do.

  31. Tammy says:

    I’m trying to get as much information as possible. I have visions(like a tv screen opening up and I watch it may be the past or the future. Things to come) and also see things in trees,wate,ground,walls everywhere some times written message about something. alot of times its being drawn out. I honestly thought i was going crazy at first. But I know now its clearly a gift. I have been shown things before they have happened.

  32. Tim says:

    Hi Anna,
    What a helpful article. I appreciate your honesty and humility. While reading it I remembered that I used to be very clairvoyant – had many pictures and images, scenes being played out. It was a beautiful gift. But I had an experience also that, due to my immaturity, generated enormous fear and pain and I remember shutting it down. Just reading I felt an inner shift and new openness to this gift … I am grateful for that and will work with the exercises to stimulate clairvoyance again.
    Blessings
    Tim.

  33. Jamie says:

    Hello, this article became helpful, thanks.
    But i have to comment about the Lapis Luzuli. You could also have a Moonstone to develop clairvoyance and also if you put a Malachite on the third eye chakra, that will also activate Psychic Vision.

  37. Jake M. says:

    Thank you for all of the information it was exactly what I was looking for. I am clairvoyant but I don’t really have a handle on my gift. However, a vision put into my imagination saved my life once. I was cutting trees down in my yard with my dad when I was 13, and saw, in my minds eye, a tree falling strait at my face. A few seconds later the same image apeared in my normal eyes. I was lucky there was a great big oak tree to hide behind. :)

  38. Danielle and Anna says:

    Hey Anna-

    My buddy and I have been having similar yet very different experiences in our lives lately. We’ve have been reading you articles online and really find them informative and helpful. I was hoping I could explain a little bit of what I’ve been experiencing and with your help, hopefully, you could make things a little clearer.
    My name is Danielle and the experience I’ve been having is popping thoughts that i will think of and then having them come true or happen. Nothing important and they’ve all been simple and light in theory yet always happening when Im driving. A few examples is, one day I was thinking about a wedding and the bachelorettes dress, etc. The minute i arrived at work my coworkers began a conversation with me about exactly that. Another time I thought my boyfriend was cheating on me, I remembered some random girl at the bar and was convinced it was her. Turned out a week later I was right. Similar things to this effect have been happening to me and don’t really know what to think or how to react to them. Any help or insight would be extremely helpful.

  39. Anna says:

    Hi Danielle, what you’re experiencing is the gift of claircognizance. You can read more about it here: http://www.psychicbutsane.com/developing-psychic-abilities-spirit-world/developing-claircognizance

  40. Gabriella Molnar says:

    Dear Anna!
    Thank You very much for this article.I need releasing the negative energies of past experiences.I was meditating and after some time I left my body and I found myself afloat near the ceiling,I saw my body on the bed.I was young and not experienced,I was frightened,as I was often when visitors came to me at night waking me up frequently.Since then I think I’d like to learn to use abilities,but when I try I’m already not afraid,I think so,but excited very much,and this moves me out from the meditative state.So I find a lot of very useful information in your articles.Thank You Very much.

  41. Alyssa says:

    Dear Anna,
    THANK YOU SO MUCH!
    I’ve always been terrified, or too excited to see spirits. To let you know, on my energy scale, I’m usually about a 10 when it comes to contacting spirits, with just a few flickers of nervousness. I love visualizing things, as I am an artist. I did the balloon exercise already, and I think to challenge yourself more, you could imaging the balloons being pushed by wind, making loop-the-loops through the sky, and disappearing with a POP! in the sky. I’ve only done this once so far, but I’m really excited to start seeing auras, lights, and even spirits! I’d LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE (okay, maybe too many Os?) to help spirits, see my guides, and my Guardian Angel.
    THANKS SO MUCH!
    You give the best advice above all psychics!
    PS a really good exercise I think, would be, is if you have a bicycle, imagine it biking out of the garage (shed, room, wherever you keep it), biking down the road, and hopping over random objects on the road (couches, horses, stacks of books, etc) and if you have a pet, imagine THAT riding the bike! It really worked for me because I love my horse so much and it’s easy to visualize her on a bike, and she has REALLY vivid colors so it takes a lot of imagination. Oh, and visualizing halos, wings, vests, clothing on your pets is GREAT. I’m getting better at visualizing things on my budgies. Best of luck!

    the first night i saw it, i felt i was being watched while i was in my bed. when i opened my eye ( i say it in a singular way because it was only one eye that i opened) to get a look at what was in my room, i did so without a movement other than my eyelid. standing beside my bed was what looked to be a person wearing a hooded robe with arms close to its side. this being the first time i had ever seen something like this, i slowly slid my hand toward the gun i keep under my pillow, with hand on gun, finger on trigger, and a knowledge that the saftey is off i flipped over in my bed taking aim at what ever it was that was by my bed. shit! i said out loud where the hell did it go. by know my girlfriend at the time was awake and thinking i was a total nut. i spent the next few days reflecting on what i had experienced. i decided to put this experience in one of two possible catagories. one i was simply loosing my Fn mind or two i had seen some sort of some kind of crap that i could not grasp. either way i rationalized that i did not matter the source because be it my mind or be it some sort of sci fi type thing, end result was it would not be able to hurt me. i figured i would try my best to talk to it if i ever saw it again. a couple nights passed with no visit, and i had for the most part forgot about my plan to talk with it. then poof their it was standing by my side again while i was in bed. let me tell you how well my great idea went to make contact with this thing. faster than you could say SHIT! i had my gun in hand again, was doing a flip in my bed, and had hit the light. so here i was naked as the day i was born, on one knee, gun held tight, eyes wide open, scanning the room as if i was the lead guy for an entry team. and yes once again my girlfriend was there to see it all. she must have been thinking it was time to lock me up and toss the key. so much for being brave, it scared the shit out of me. i thought about this again for a good while and again told myself that i would try to talk with it the next time, if there was a next time. some time passed when again i was in bed, i again felt that something was looking at me, and yep once again there it was. this time i did not freak out, after opening one eye to get a look, i did not move, i did not reach for my gun, i calmly spoke out loud to it and said. If you want to talk, then talk. If not then why dont you fuck off and leave me alone. you are kinda freaking me out with this shit. i then slowly rolled over, no gun in hand, to see this thing fade away into the night. i planned to try another approach the next time. that time never came. its now been a few years and much to my dismay i have not had another episode like this again. to tell the truth it kind of pisses me off. i was really looking forward to seeing what might become of these visits.

    so there it is, my story. what does it all mean? i have no idea. if there is any truth to this type of stuff, i hope that i have not pissed off these things. i would not mind if they came back to visit. it would be nice however if they could act a little less creepy.

    Hello Anna,
    ive had alot of different experiences growing up but nothing to lead me to believe i was different in any way. just really bad dreams, which i still have to this day. and yet for some reason after the death of a friend i started noticing things in the corner of my eye… alot, once i woke up from a bad dream.. and in my dream i couldnt breath. and i woke up to hearing someone as if they were right in my ear telling me to breath. scared me to the point where i couldnt go back to sleep. and here not too long ago i was home alone and my kids were sleeping and i heard someone call out a name from my hallway. and not in a loud voice either, it was like a loud whisper. bare with me there is a question behind this. my father died when i was a year or 2 old. therefore no memories, no feelings nothing shared that i can recall of him. and yet since i was very young, everytime i go to his grave i have this emotional bond with him. i cry as if ive known him forever. out of the 3 children my mother and father shared im the only one with this attachment to him. its practically mind boggling cause i dont understand what it means. in a way im frightened by what i might see or hear. but mostly im affraid. the constint goose bumps, shivers and bad dreams scare me. what do you think i should do?

  46. te says:

    i’ve known since i was very young that there was something different about me, when i was about 6 yrs old, i remember seeig a being walk up the stairway across from my room, sometimes i would wake up in the middle of the night and it would be standing beside me, but there was never any fear that it would hurt me, it was a calming presence, i remember following it one night out of my room and down the hall to the bathroom, of which there was no way out, i opened the door to look inside, but it was gone. i’ve often had dreams that came true, or a sense that somethig was about to happen and it would come true. though i never considered this to be anything special until recently. now i realize that i’m meant to learn more about this gift, and i’m searching for ways to develop it more.

  47. akhil says:

    Hi anna,
    this is an interesting activity for developing clairvoyance. But tell me, are clairvoyances and OBEs related in any way?

  48. Kimberly says:

    I was pretty amazed when I shut my eyes and started imagining me letting go of each balloon because when I let go of the yellow balloon, a strong image of an eye popped up in the dark area of your eyes when you close them. cool!

  49. theresa says:

    Hi Anna, I happen to come up here to find out how to develop my ability that just happens, out of no where I start telling people stuff, but its like im being forced to talk by this spirit. I see images, or numbers. I definitely see people and even tho it scears the hell out of me, they never have a face, and only let me see enough to descibe what they are wearing, or height or hair color etc. I could feel the spirit to the point that I cry or laugh or feel sad or dreed, whatever they are feeling. I love doing it cuz most times it good news that really has significants to the person Im telling. I am told all the time I need to do this. Im like nnnnaaaa. But I feel so good when people are amazed by it and they get excited or happy to hear from the spirit.

  50. lisa says:

    Hi, every since i was small i have always had out this world experences that no one understood. for example when i was 10 i went to bed at a friends place and woke up under the bed, can’t remmber how i got there. The dead speak to me but they don’t scare since i was 12 but once a dark thing came for me but i got rid of it. Ever since i need execise to open third eye have been feeling light headed and like am foaling all the time,what dose this mean.

  51. JESSICA says:

    my friend killed his self last night now i feel like hes with me in the room and it feels like he is talking to me in my mind but how can i tell if its him or my imagination i dont have alot of money at the moment to get a reading and its driving me crazy to not be able to know whether its him or not speaking to me or if its just my imagination

  52. Eugene says:

    I know I have this gift. I feel when things are wrong. I have dreams. I have deja vu. I have predicted things in my life and it came to pass. I can read people.

    I have always had this and I have been afraid to tell anyone. I want my gifts to be stronger and better. I need someone to talk to who could help me.

    I also get migraines a lot.

  53. jorge says:

    A couple years ago me and my wife were becoming spiritualy close to god. We live in a duplex house with another couple. This couple were very out of control and always fighting,they had alot of negative energy. all of the sudden one night i started getting visions in my mind that i did’nt have cotrol over or could explain. One vision looke like a black and white cartoon playing in my mind and the other of an evil looking creature. The worst was when i saw an evil entity in the garage before i was going out to get ready to go to work. It was a pair of yellow eyes in the dark and when it moved slowley it left like a trail of light but, as bright as they were it did’nt illuminate in the darkness. Ever since then i kinda blocked everything out of my mind.these visions would come without control and i could never understand what they meant?

  54. Courtney says:

    Hi, I experience seeing lights, sparkles, orbs, and sometimes layers of the aura. But, I’m wondering if you think it’s typical to go from this stage to seeing an angel or spirit/spirit guide, in a different way. Such as seeing them as more human-like.

    Thanks!

  55. Amy Naylor says:

    thanks for the information i found it really useful, since i was a teenager i have seen spirits and heard them too, but as iv got older iv seen alot less of them but i still see outlines, shadows and partial apparitions and i am hoping to develop my skills further rather than lose them altogether, so thanks for the info and the free ebook.
    amzz.

  56. xyz says:

    hi…this is sim and i want to discuss some thing with u that i have been dreaming of dead relatives since 2003. It started after my late grandmother had come to my dreams, although, she died much earlier around 90′s when i was a child. Dream was that in Jan 2003 my grandmother rang the door and asked me to open the door. When i asked her who is she as i could not recognize her she introduced herself as my grand-mother to me and i opened the door. She entered into the room and asked about my mother whereabouts. I told her that my mother had gone somewhere and not at home she replied that she had come to meet her and she will go after meeting her and lied on the floor with white blanket. I suddenly wake up after that.And coincidentally my mother’s brother died in the same year in DEC 2003. After this incident i continuously having dreams of deceased loved ones.Not this, my granny died in 2008 and i actually saw her dead in my dreams just few days ago her death and when i actually saw her dead body it was lying at the same position which i saw in my dream. Recently i lost my father and i actually saw him dead in my dreams at least 3 times before his death. And I am really confused.Is this a coincidence or something else?

  57. Jim says:

    Hi, I seem to have an ability to explain just about anything through the use of metaphor,science, polotics, religion, society (anything & everything).. i get intense bouts of realisisation & there are times when i enter into conversation about a subject i seem to go into some sort of freeflow & it as is i am learning, processing & outputting instantaneously, the realisations just keep coming, the explanation gets deeper & deeper & clearer & clearer, it feels totally out of my control when it happens but so uplifting, my whole head tingles & my hair stands on end as it rushes out like a waterfall.

    I can translate a song instantly at first time of hearing, i see every significance & meaning in a movie,i hear every beat & sound within a tune, I feel changes in atmosphere & vibe strongly, seem to know what people are thinking alot, i know intuitavely when someone has been talking to someone else when it involves me, jigsaws complete themselves in my mind & give answers & meaning to situations. I know intuitively when i am being lied to & why people feel & behave the way they do. I have also heard other peoples thoughts “in their own voice” & intuitively turned around when people were decieving me to find them smiling smugly when they were making out to be upset. I have also been told a lie but also heard the truth simultaneously as if it were sent at the same time.. both in their own voice & the vibe! When my mum died i was asleep next to the bed, i felt her touch me on the shoulder to wake me up & she said “you need to wake up now it’s time for me to go”… she wanted me to let the family know, it was 5 o clock in the morning. I have also had deeply religious/spiritual experiences of realisation, as if a higher force is leading me into the light.

    It’s very difficult to talk to anybody about this, sometimes i feel alone & question the reality of it, but my gut always reminds me it is real.. it’s undeniable…. what is this?

  58. Fany says:

    Hi, for the past feww weeks I have been meditating and first I did cry a lot when I did meditation for the heart chakra and start seeing colors during meditation where the color purple come first and them one by one all the color of the rainbow follow by purple at the end of a tunnel I could see an eye looking at me. Well after all this I have been dreaming my first dream I saw a candle in a glass that it was melted it look like crystal water when I touch it it was hot and as I start walking the water put the flame off,and I wake up the next dream was I was going to travel to a country far away and where other lenguage was spoken and as I cross the border I was just there in the other country and I start listening people speaking and I could understand and I start walking in a under ground tunnel ask I was walking I saw from the ground coming out the third eye looking at me and as I continue walking more third eye was opening for every where does any body know the meaning of this.

  59. Helene says:

    I remember several times of things that came to my head about not going one direction or another. Or, telling someone to be careful. Even driving down a road and looking at houses and having feelings of how that household was feeling. Sort of if it was a good feeling or bad. Its kinda weird. Most of the time, I would just let my feelings go. Or ignore them. but the strangest things Ive experienced are scary to me and Im afraid to enhance if I do have a gift. I see a little girl once in a while since 1995′ish. Only after Ive been sleeping. I also see little lights above me and dissapear only after I stare at them. Just in the last yr, It felt as though someone was touching my feet and legs. Sort of like a carressing touch. It was so scary, I told my doctor and he was convince to do a cat scan of my head for tumors. Just last night I saw the same little girl and Im scared to go to bed. I think my husband thinks Im becoming psychotic.

  60. Kiersten says:

    Anna, I can’t thank you enough for your willingness to share what you share. And in such a very cool, down-to-earth way. It’s helped me immensely. Thank you!

  61. Sherri says:

    I recently found out a lot of things about my family that I never knew.I was told by my closest first cousin that she is a 4th -6th generation clairvoyant,as am I.She says that her mother is also,but non-practicing,and also that my paternal grandmother is a 6th-8th generation non-practicing clairvoyant.My grandmother is in a home,so I have not been able to discuss this with her.Upon further discussion,there are eerie happenings that have been circling my family-visions of shadows in peripheral,and when we turn to look nobody is there.My sister died in a fire a few weeks ago,and she claims she was seeing a lot of stuff.My cousin says she ALSO was clairvoyant,but she KNEW it.I have become interested in this aspect of my family history,and am now searching for more information on the subject in hopes of honing an ability I am told I have.I suspect there is a darker reason for these things we see.There are stories of a ritual gone bad that may be causing our family to be tormented.My cousin has now called on the elders of her coven to give us protection.I need help to open this door that I may be able to help my family also.Whatever information anyone may have that could assist me would be greatly appreciated.

  62. John says:

    Hi everyone, I am clairvoyant. Only I’m not the average one, I see auras instead. I was born with this skill, I know that cause it was the first thing I learned with little to no practice. I don’t know how to see spirits… Any advice??

  63. Linda says:

    My mother passed away March 13th 2012. She died of what they believed was a heart attack cause of death wasnt officially determined. My heart has been broken. My mother was my rock. My best friend. My everything. I dont know if Im just reaching for anything because Im so sad or if there is some significant meaning to it… But I have had 3 dreams maybe 4 since she passed away that she wasnt dead. My dad called me in one dream and told me to come to the house now, and I did and my Mom was standing in the kitchen looking confused and scared. I grabbed her hugged her crying telling her I missed her hugging her and all the while she just looks confused. All the dreams were pretty much the same scenario her confused not really understanding and me crying and hugging her. Do you think there could be anything to this? Is there away I can control my dreams more and have a better conversation with her.. or maybe talk to her out of a dream. If I can how? I miss my mom to the point of wanting to die myself, Id really love to talk with her again.

  64. Rebecca says:

    I woke up “feeling” the indonesian earthquake, but I live in the Midwest. Occasionally we get gentle shakers, so I didn’t think much of it until I woke up and found out there was a tsunami watch for the entire Indian Ocean, due to an earthquake overnight. So, of course my bed wasn’t really shaking, but I “felt” it nonetheless. I’m not alarmed by the experienc, mostly just intrigued.

    This is new. I’ve never had this kind of experience before. I have been meditating the last few months, and a friend thought that could have something to do with it.

    Any thoughts?

  65. Poulomi says:

    Hi Anna,
    I loved this blog.
    Though I feel scared, I would try my best to eliminate it through love or any positive emotions.I want to be a clairvoyant to see my loved ones as well as help others.And that’s why am determined! :)
    Suggest me some other exercises too-my humble request.
    Much <3 to you.

  66. Kay says:

    Dear Anna,

    I have too many stories and experiences to even start to write about. My main concern is that I do not want to expand any ability to see spirits, etc. but they continue to find me. I have tried to ignore it, ignore situations or conversations that may open another opportunity for something to happen, but it seems like eventually it does no matter what. Do I not have a choice? Is it something that I am just going to have to deal with? Am I making it worse by trying to ignore it? I thought about starting a blog, thinking that if I could get the thoughts and images out of my head by writing about them, then maybe that would block spirits, shadows or the strong feelings that find their way to me. I would appreciate your thoughts.

    Thanks!

  67. Debra says:

    I get this gut feeling @times that something is not right it comes out of no where the last time i got it was when some of my out of state family was visiting they left for an 11 hr drive home on sunday night i was fine till i went to bed that eve, and this feeling came on me i tossed and turned all night the next morning they called me to tell me that they had just been in an accident 20 minutes from their house I also dream of people in my life that have passed, and recently I have started dreaming im looking at photographs of people ive never met, I often think I see something move out of the corner of my eye I can feel some kind of energy I just cant quite put my finger on what im feeling do you have any advice or tips for me or am I just crazy thank you

  68. Jason says:

    I would like to develop my ability to see the dead. I already have the gift of feeling or sense when I am around a spirt. I can accurately tell what emotions surround a spirt.

  69. Martha says:

    Hi Anna
    I have a mixture of all four Clairs, they vary at different times in my life, I have always been as truthful as I possibly can which probably enables me to develope them. I recently tested my abilities and confirmed to myself they are well and truelly developed. I am always wondering what is my purpose to having them, especially when I’m mostly at home, seldom go anywhere other then take my children to school, grocery shopping, house chores , basically home with my family. Just wondering what’s it all for sometimes.

  70. Josh Jensen says:

    Hello Anna,
    I know I shouldn’t but I feel weird posting this.
    For the longest time I’ve had this attraction to psychic abilities (if that makes any sense).
    Not too long ago I had a dream that a man was riding a motorcycle/scooter and got hit by a car. I ran over and helped him up… Well the next morning I was watching the news and I saw a man on a scooter get hit by a car and he got up surprising fast for how violently he was hit.

    Where I work people are always saying there is a ghosts maybe multiple ghosts. Whenever I’m in the backroom/ warehouse (which is the part of the office I work in) I will see something moving from one side of the room to the other. I never get scared and I believe I’m the only one in the office that isn’t scared.

    Anna,
    When I read you blog, immediately felt like crying, but it was a happy cry. I immediately felt at piece when I started reading the info on clairvoyance. Am I one of those people who may have some ability but isn’t aware of it?
    Thank you for taking the time to read this.

    Josh

  71. jack says:

    Hi anna ive been researching this for a long time now and im only 18 i feel many things and i feel alot of messages are trying to be shown to me but when i try to meditate or use binural beats i just cant quite seem to quite my mind, id love a responce from you.
    many thanks Jack

  72. Ryan says:

    I’ve had a similar experience to the woman in the corner with a Shadowy man in the corner of my room when i was ten i am still wary about this and am wondering if it is safe for me to self heal even after all these years? i’m just feeling a bit of deja voo just thinking about the idea I am excited and scared at the prospect do you have any tips i can see auras as well sometimes but i think that for the most part has been blocked too Best regards Ryan

  73. Anna says:

    Dear Jack, I am not sure what to suggest besides binaural beats and meditation to quieten your mind. In my Psychic Awakening I do have a meditation in one of the chapters for retrieving your energy and help you to feel less distracted, mentally and energetically.

  74. Abigail says:

    Why? I started doing the balloon exercise. I let go of the balloons too fast at first, and then realized I was supposed to watch them disappear before letting go of the next one.

    I let go of the red one a second time and let it disappear into the blue sky. Then the orange one: A nasty looking blackbird came and popped it as I released it. Then black birds appeared and popped all the other balloons I tried to release. Why did I see this? I did not expect this. It came out of nowhere!

  75. Jacy Crawford says:

    Anna, I’m 60 years old. Although I’ve always been intuitive, I’ve never believed I had any particular psychic ability. I went to several psychics and was sought out by several others two years ago, after I had a break up with the person I feel was my soulmate. The psychics, without knowing more than my name, say we will eventually re-unite and I believe that’s true, but they said much more about me – that my spiritual side was awakening and enlightenment was coming. Since then, I have tried (I thought unsuccessfully) to meditate to help me with my heartache, but it’s hard for me to clear my mind, however, over the past few months, I have been seeing things with my eyes closed that evolve out of a purple mist. Strange things, like old black and white cartoons, and rooms in homes, with flowers and an occasional animal or person walking through. Once, I saw my estranged loved one come and sit and turn on his computer, but I was seeing him from inside his monitor. I pray a lot now, I light candles for him and for angels to guide me and help me, and although we have not reunited at all, I feel that he still loves me, and I him, in our hearts. We rarely see each other, and when we do, we do not yet communicate. He is with another much younger woman, and I don’t want him in my life as a second choice. He is younger – much younger than me, but persued me in our relationship, not me him. I can’t find answers or solutions, and sometimes I get “coincidental” things telling me he will come, but I hurt still and wish I could find peace. I know I must be guided by someone or something, but I want to develop this so I can do more to make this time of separation more bearable. I feel almost as though I must have done something horrible to someone to suffer such heartache myself now, and if I have, I haves prayed for forgiveness over and over. Can you offer any advice?

  76. Anna says:

    Hi Jacy,

    I’m not usually able to offer detailed intuitive advice outside of a session. However, I do wonder if cutting the cord of attachment to this person would bring you some relief. You can find out more about cord cutting here: http://www.psychicbutsane.com/relationships-and-love/cord-cutting-as-a-technique-to-improve-relationships-and-your-emotional-health

    Psychotherapy can also help if you find the right therapist who is spiritually open.

  77. hannah says:

    Hi Anna love your post. well Ive been meditating for last 3 days for the 1st time and at my 3rd meditation i tried to feel my heart, throat, third & crown chakra but there is this feeling w/ my crown my body felt tingling and it felt like my energy through my whole body is going to my crown. I was so curious and amazed like wow whats happenin but after that i felt a heat in my left ear down to my left hand. What was that? is it my crown was opening? or kulandini? but kulandini is in a long process right? am i in danger? hoping for your reply. Thanks!

  78. Hi,
    This has been helpful to read and will read the other articles also. I see people i have never seen before in different houses/ places, and is quite common i see them again. They have different personalities each some more powerful and aware of me been there then others, some quite bad ones who just want to hurt/ scare you.

    Been seeing them all my life and quite alot of times a month, including small animals also (rare)
