Developing clairvoyance is easy, and it’s more fun than you may think. But as with other new abilities, it will take patience and practice. It’s similar to developing physical skills. Strengthening your “psychic muscles” will be a process, too. But it’s a lot more fun!
Seeing images clairvoyantly is easier when you open your third eye, which is why investing the time to open it is so worthwhile.
Here are eight ways to increase your psychic seeing abilities by opening your third eye:
- Use your imagination.
Clairvoyants have dynamic imaginations. Clairvoyants “see” through their third eye, in their “mind’s eye.” The pictures, symbols, and visions that clairvoyants see are literally “in their heads.”
This is why it’s so beneficial to work on becoming more visually imaginative. Spending a few minutes each day visualizing different images, pictures, and scenes in your mind’s eye is a really fun and relaxing way to develop clairvoyance. The more often you practice, the easier it will become. Whatever you visualize, be sure your intent is to open the third eye and increase your clairvoyant abilities.
- Practice visualization.
Another way to stretch your imagination is to practice visualizing. A simple way to do this is with numbers. Just close your eyes and picture the number 1 in your mind’s eye. When you’re able to retain the image for about 10 seconds, you can move on to the next numbers up to 10.
If you’re having trouble, give yourself an illustration to start with. Gather some art supplies and outline a large number 1, using the whole piece of paper. Get as creative as you want—cover it with glitter, or fill it with polka dots and stripes and color it with bright markers or crayons. When you’re finished, stare at your awesome work of art for about 30 seconds. Close your eyes and repeat the exercise above.
- Play the “Memory” card game.
Did you ever play the “Memory” card game as a child? You remember the game—it’s the one where you arrange the cards face-down in a grid, then flip them over to find matching pairs. “Memory” is a great game to play to help you open your third eye. As you play, practice seeing where the cards all are in your mind’s eye.
- Play memory games with objects.
If you don’t have a “Memory” card game, you can play a similar game with objects. Arrange a dozen or so random objects on a table or tray. Study the objects for about a minute. Then, close your eyes and try to remember all of the objects. Practice visualizing the details of each object—such as its location, size, and color—in your mind’s eye. Without peeking, draw or write down information about all of the objects, including as much detail as you possibly can. Finally, look at the objects to check how accurate you were.
- Use crystals.
Crystals are a very effective way to help open your third eye. Fluorite and amethyst are both known for their power to do this. To benefit from crystals, set them around your meditation space, place them near the head of your bed before you go to sleep, or simply carry some in your pocket. Carrying them will remind you throughout the day of your intent to increase your clairvoyant abilities.
- Keep a dream journal.
It’s common for clairvoyant people to experience frequent and vivid dreams. Angels, spirit guides, and loved ones who have passed are able to communicate with us through our dreams. When we go to sleep, our conscious minds rest. This allows our subconscious minds to freely receive the spiritual guidance we consciously overlook or ignore when we’re awake. Sleep is the optimal time for us to connect with the spiritual realm.
Keep your dream journal near your bed to make it easy to write about your dreams the moment you awaken. After you do this for a while, you’ll start noticing symbols and patterns that are uniquely meaningful to you. You’ll also be able to track how your clairvoyance is increasing.
- Meditate with visualization.
Meditation is crucial to developing psychic gifts. It focuses your conscious mind, raises your energy vibration, and wakes up your subconsciousness. All mediation opens your third eye, but mediating with visualization is especially effective and can be done in just a few minutes every day. Sit comfortably, close your eyes, and breathe deeply to ground yourself. When you feel grounded, picture a loved one’s face in your mind’s eye. Look closely and imagine all of the details!
Or, visualize your third eye chakra. Sit in a comfortable position, close your eyes, breathe deeply. Focus your intent on the center of your forehead, just above your eyebrows. This is the area of your third eye chakra. Visualize the chakra as a majestic purple sphere of spinning energy. You may begin experiencing tingling or slight pressure on your forehead. This is perfectly normal. It’s evidence that your third eye is opening, and your clairvoyant gifts are growing!
Don’t feel bad if you don’t trust the clairvoyant information you receive at first. We’ve been conditioned to think that only tangible and logical things are trustworthy. So, it may take you a while to fully trust your new ability.
The road to clairvoyance is certainly an exciting journey. But if you’re not seeing as much progress as you’d hoped to see, don’t give up. Stick with it. Be kind and forgiving toward yourself. Above all, this should never be a stressful process. Have fun. Give yourself grace, and take a break if you need to. It will come!
