If you’re reading this article, then you have psychic ability! How do I know? Because you’re in a human body which is a psychic instrument designed to read energy. You can strengthen your psychic ability the same way you would strengthen any skill — through study and practice.

What Are Psychic Abilities?

Psychic abilities are the power to access information not readily available to our five senses. A psychic is able to see and/or sense energy that’s invisible to those only using their five senses. Everyone is born with the ability to develop their extrasensory perception with practice and patience, but some people have an extremely high tendency to sense hidden secrets in the world around them.

Can Psychics See The Future?

There are many different types of psychic, and although the stereotype surrounding psychics is that they can predict future events, it actually depends upon the type of psychic power that particular person has developed, which determines what kind of information they are able to access, and how they access it.

Some of the most well known are:

  • Clairvoyance – the ability to “see” events, people, objects and locations using their inner “sight.” 
  • Clairaudience – the ability to “hear” information through paranormal means
  • Clairsentience –the ability to “sense” and feel information
  • Claircognizance – the ability to “simply know” information
  • Mediums – the ability to communicate with (or ‘channel’) spirits
  • Aura Readers – these readers use clairvoyance to gain information by looking at people’s auras

During a psychic reading, one or many of these psychic skills may be used, which is one of the reasons you’ll visit a “psychic” or “intuitive” rather than a “clairvoyant or clairaudient.” In addition to the specific skills of the psychic, a number of tools can also be used in readings, including tarot cards.

Why You Might Want to Develop Your Psychic Gifts

A great reason to deepen your natural psychic ability is that it allows you to trust yourself. When you trust in your own intuition, you no longer second-guess yourself. You make decisions that are in alignment with what you see and sense to be true without hesitation. You wholeheartedly honor what you sense and feel. You move joyfully toward the people and places that resonate with your energy. It’s a magical way to live your life.

There are many ways to be psychic. You can sense and feel energy with your body (clairsentience or “clear feeling”), you can hear messages using your inner ears (clairaudience or “clear hearing”), and you can see images and pictures in your mind’s eye using clairvoyance (“clear seeing”).

In this article, I’m going to tell you how to strengthen your clairvoyance. And, I am going to prove that you’re psychic right now!

Firstly, What Is Clairvoyance? What Is A Clairvoyant?

The word clairvoyance comes from French, and literally means “clear vision”, which makes sense when we consider the specific psychic powers of this type of psychic. A clairvoyant is able to receive information about a person, event, location or object through ESP. 

So, if you visit a clairvoyant for a psychic reading, they may well tell you about your past, present or future. 

The Steps To Developing Your Clairvoyance

Developing your clairvoyance may be much easier than you think. Follow this simple formula to develop your own psychic powers.

Step One

Close your eyes, and imagine a green square. Can you see it? Can you visualize what a green square looks like?

Now let’s try something even more familiar. Imagine a family member you know very well standing in front of you. Can you see him or her? You might see a quick flash of their face, or an image of their entire frame might flash in front of you for a moment.

If you were able to briefly see the green square, and/or your family member in your mind, then congratulations! You were using your inner eye, hence your clairvoyance, to see it.

Imagination is simply the blank canvas we all use to “see” an object in our minds. Whenever you daydream, visualize circumstances, or describe a movie you just saw, you are seeing these images like a virtual reality in your head.

Our spirit guides and angels use the canvas of your imagination to send you pictures, thoughts, and ideas. It takes a little bit of practice to tell the difference between your creations and the creations of Spirit. With time and practice, that ability to tell the difference comes naturally.

Step Two

For now, practice visualizing objects in your mind. Take an object and examine it thoroughly, then close your eyes and see if you can recreate the image. You can also look at a picture of a place in nature, and imagine yourself there. Close your eyes, see yourself in a forest or on a beach, and look around. What can you see in front of you and behind you? What do you notice?

Pictures in the mind have a fuzzy quality. They don’t appear as sharp as images we see with our physical eyes. That’s normal! Keep going. Keep using your imagination, and when your guides, angels, or deceased loved ones want to send you images in order to communicate with you, they’ll find that you have a sharpened ability to “see” what they want to show you.
