Clairvoyance and the Third Eye
In ancient mystical teachings, it was also well-known that creative imaging with the 3rd eye was imperative for inspirational messages as well as getting hunches for problem solving. Often when we get an inspiration, we feel it in our gut (or solar plexus) area. However, the source of this information has actually been filtered down from the third eye, or 6th chakra.
Throughout history and in most cultures there have been anecdotal stories and historical claims of clairvoyant abilities. In ancient Egypt clairvoyance was used in the healing temples and young women called “looking girls” would use this ability to help heal others by clairvoyantly looking into the innards of the body. Other instances have been associated with illustrious figures such as Nostradamus and Merlin, the Dark Ages magician of myth and legend. In recent years, the label of Clairvoyant has quite often been used interchangeably with the label of Psychic.
Today the label of “clairvoyant” is still regarded suspiciously and is relegated by many to the art of fortune-telling. It has taken many dedicated light workers and honorable psychics, to pull this wonderful inborn ability out of something previously looked down upon, into becoming an accepted profession. The most important strides forward in giving clairvoyance credence were actually initiated by the U.S. government when they funded the project “Stargate” in the late 1970’s. When the U.S. got wind of the fact that the Russians were using psychics to spy on the U.S., the U.S. military answered with their own secret program. This program went on for some time using a method of clairvoyant seeing they had developed with the help of psychic, Ingo Swann. This method was later labeled, “Remote Viewing”. The military rigorously searched for servicemen who exhibited strong 6th sense abilities and were then recruited to train in this program.
There were several successes with the program and many cases are well documented. The program was successfully utilized to find downed planes, helicopters and even missing people. In the nineties, congress got wind of the program and it was soon canceled due to the fact it was considered a waste of funds. However, I feel this program is still being used somewhere within our government, albeit quietly.

What Is Clairvoyance?
Clairvoyance is defined as a form of extra-sensory perception which allows a person by using their inner vision, to perceive objects, distant persons or locations, and events. Clairvoyance is also used to view and detect certain types of energies not normally perceptible to humans, e. g., radio waves and the human aura. Typically, such perception is reported in visual terms only, but may also include auditory impressions (clairaudience) or kinesthetic (clairsentience) impressions.
Where Does Clairvoyance Come From?
We are all aware that most of us can see with our physical eyes. How this really works is that the eyes initially perceive the world upside down. They then send that image of what they are perceiving to the brain. The brain interprets the image, object or scene, and makes it appear right side-up to the perceiver. Most are never aware of this process!
We all have another “eye” between and just above our physical eyes which has a function that’s long been recognized by mystics throughout the ages. This area of our forehead is believed to be the seat of mystical perceptual powers. This is called the “Third Eye”, or by its Sankrit name, Anja, and is associated with our 6th chakra. To healers, it is associated with the color indigo. There are certain vital glands responsible for 3rd eye clairvoyant abilities and these are our pineal and pituitary glands.
The pineal gland is located in the geometric center of the brain. The pituitary gland is located just behind the eyes. While the physiological function of the pineal gland has been a mystery to modern science, mystical traditions have long understood that the pineal gland was the connecting link between the physical and spiritual worlds.
Most of the time, our inner visual viewing happens in the frontal lobe area. Often during clairvoyance development and during actual viewing episodes, various sensations can be felt at the back and top of the head as well as a tightening or pressure sensation across the forehead. This is due to the quickening of the glands in the head when one is focused on development of this chakra.
When the sixth chakra (3rd eye) is open and in balance, a person can be extremely intuitive, perceptive, and aware of other realms and entities. When it is closed down or plugged up, a person could feel isolated, prone to sarcasm, overly skeptical, out of touch, rigid, confused, or even depressed. Therefore, it is essential to maintain balance in the 3rd eye because it is your spiritual window that opens into the infinite wisdom of the universe and enables the visuals received from the Spiritual realms to be experienced.
Famous Clairvoyant of the Past
The most famous clairvoyant was Nostradamus. Nostradamus has been credited with successfully predicting numerous events in world history, including the French Revolution, the atom bomb, the rise of Adolf Hitler, and some say the September 11, 2011, attack on the World Trade Center. Naysayers and skeptics may disagree and call the predictions coincidence, but in my opinion, many of Nostradamus’ predictions were too right on to be called vague coincidences.
When Do We Become Clairvoyant?
Most individuals are born with supra strong clairvoyant abilities but then start to lose or forget about them at a young age–usually about the ages of 7 or 8. Very often, young children report seeing things older people don’t. To them it’s a perfectly natural thing and comes as a bit of a shock to their tiny minds when they realize they are the only ones seeing, for example, colored auras around people, or see Spirits of the deceased. No one likes to appear different or be considered strange—not even little children. Psychically sensitive youngsters learn the hard way not to talk about the visions or Spirits they are witnessing due to possible ridicule, admonishment, or an offhanded dismissal of their experiences by other children and adults.
“I’m Not Good at Clairvoyance!”
This is a statement I hear from time to time. If you don’t believe you are gifted with clairvoyance, you might want to think again. For most, clairvoyance ranks at the top or close to the top of the para-senses. Everyone has the ability to imagine pictures in their head and do so without even thinking about. If you feel you have trouble visualizing clear pictures, know that you will always be able to visualize something. I have students who report seeing swirling colors and that’s all. This in itself can be quite revealing. Colors might indicate a message in code form from a Spirit communicating an idea especially if a feeling accompanies the color seen.
Clairvoyance is used for many psychic modalities. I use it all the time when I am doing readings and/or a Mediumship session with a client. My eyes could be open or closed when doing this. It just depends on what I wish to accomplish and “see”. Often, I get pictures off to my right side when my eyes are open. When I close my eyes to do a body scan or get a visual, the image appears right in front of my forehead in the middle.
Clairvoyance is often used by healers to scan the body by viewing the chakras and aura of the person they are working on. The colors seen and the vibrancy of the color viewed can tell one a lot about what is happening in that person’s life. The colors of the aura can tell a story about the person without even having to tell anything about themselves to the healer.
Everyone is born with a specific ground color that can be seen clairvoyantly. This base color is what we are born with as our primary color and brings with it many gifts and graces. A trained clairvoyant can tell you what your ground color is.
More about Opening the Third Eye
As mentioned before, your third eye is the “eye” through which you can see beings or other things such as remote visions which are not visible to your physical eyes or in your conscious awareness. It is what you use to “view” with when you wish to connect to the higher astral or spiritual realms.
The development of psychic ability in regards to “seeing” images and symbols which tell us things, is very closely connected with the opening of your third eye. This means that when you work on activating your third eye, your inner vision capabilities expand. Having this fully enhanced psychic ability and an open third eye entails several benefits which can make a difference on how you live and perceive life.
Even though everyone has a third eye and some degree of psychic abilities, in many cases, the third eye is only partially open. The reasons for a sluggish third eye are varied. It could be you came into this incarnation with a partially blocked third eye due to witnessing some sort of trauma in a past life and subconsciously shut it down. That’s just one example.
There are steps you can take to fully open your third eye or to unblock it (even if you are not sure it’s blocked) so that the flows of energies go smoothly. Doing a few simple exercises will take care of any questions or concerns you may have about it.
There are several benefits to exercising your psychic ability and unblocking your third eye. You will have access to your inner well of wisdom and to those of the higher realms. You will develop your intuition and have a better understanding of things which cannot be easily perceived by your physical eyes. You become open to a whole new plane of awareness, balance, and aspire to a higher quality of life. These are just a few of the benefits you can have by enhancing your third eye ability.
Voluntary and Involuntary Clairvoyance
Voluntary Clairvoyance: is where someone has taken the time to develop the ability and can call forth information about a person, place, or event at will. This includes summoning different dimensions or time periods for viewing.
Involuntary Clairvoyance: An unexpected visual event. Untrained individuals who have had this happen to them might find it quite startling. This event could come in the form of a vivid day-dream or a vision of which something significant is happening in this time period or even in another time. Many people report instances of having visions of a loved one that has died or was in grave danger before receiving notification through normal channels. These occurrences may have come in a vivid daydream, called a waking vision, or in an actual dream. While these occurrences can be frightening to some or comforting to others, it leaves the viewer no doubt of what they had seen or experienced.
Not all involuntary instances of clairvoyance are unhappy or dire premonitions. Sometime people get a beautiful life changing vision offering inspiration and hope which is a true gift from Spirit. Why don’t we all get a wonderful vision or dream which changes our life for the better from time to time? Maybe we all do at some point in our lives, but unfortunately don’t pay any attention to it. We might even ignore the message, the vision, or dream; because we think it’s our imagination.
The Premonition Vision: – is a view into the future with your clairvoyant (inner) vision. It can happen in a waking state, in meditation, daydreaming, or actual dreaming. How you know it’s a premonition is by the emotional impact the picture leaves you with. Some people spontaneously get a movie scene like moving pictures or a type of slide show.
How does one increase their clairvoyant faculties? The answer is clairvoyant abilities will exponentially increase with meditative practice and with patience. When the 3rd eye is fully opened and trained, one is usually able to perceive entities (Spirits and guides) from the astral planes as well as other pieces of psychic information.
Exercise for Strengthening the 3rd Eye:
The Pen Object Exercise:
Pick up an object near to you. I suggest a pen. Look at it carefully. Memorize everything about the pen. Now close your eyes and imagine the pen projected onto your screen in minute detail. Can you replicate it? Now open your eyes and view the object again. What did you miss? Try again to make sure you have every detail replicated when you view it on your screen. Do this again and again until you can replicate the object perfectly on all sides. When you are finished, you can “blow it up” if you wish. Clean off your screen. Try to replicate other objects when you feel ready.
