What Is Clairvoyance?

Clairvoyance is the ability to see with our spiritual eye with those who have departed the physical realm and are now in Spirit. The word clairvoyance comes from the combination of the French words “clair” meaning clear and “voyance” relating to the ability to perceive things not present to the senses. In basic terms, the word clairvoyance means clear seeing, energy!!

Clairvoyance is an Umbrella Term

It is not uncommon, depending on which spiritual or holistic circles you frequent, to hear the use of the word clairvoyance to describe other mediumistic senses or psychic extra-sensory phenomena (ESP). The terms clairvoyance and clairvoyant – one who has clairvoyant abilities is often thrown around loosely like loose change bouncing around in a laundromat dryer machine.

Clairvoyance can be used as an all-encompassing umbrella term for not only psychic ESP but also for those who are clairaudient, clairsentient, and clairvoyant. In other words, someone who can hear, see, and sense those in Spirit but also perceive things psychically beyond normal sensory perception.

Clairvoyance is also associated with the third eye chakra. You’ll see and hear that in many circles as well.

So the next time you hear someone is clairvoyant see what context it is being used in.

Energy and Seeing Clearly

The Center for Astrophysics, Harvard, and Smithsonian say that the universe is comprised of matter and energy. In mediumship, everything is comprised of energy. It is through the law of vibration that everything has a vibratory resonance to it.

When using clairvoyance you are using your mind’s eye to see the energy that is beyond the physical. This energy is coming through in extremely subtle vibrations. One can see those in Spirit physically with our naked eyes but that is very rare and uncommon. An example of this is when someone says they saw a ghost in a home they were visiting.

It takes an extremely large amount of energy to manifest seeing a spirit with our own physical eyes. There has to be an expenditure for this energy so hence it is not very common although possible.

Nine times out of ten, one sees Spirit using our mind’s eye. It is through our brain that these clairvoyant connections are processed. Less energy is required from the individual to see through the mind’s eye than seeing the spirit in full physical form with the physical eyes.

Remember, Spirit always takes the path of least resistance – easiest path to get to its destination. Hence, why clairvoyantly and mediumistic speaking these energy vibrations are normally low key for us to sense.

How Clear Seeing Works

You are using your marvelous brain to see clairvoyantly beyond the traditional sense. We see clairvoyantly through our mind’s eye but what is happening is that our brain is processing those dim vibrations of energy and creating thoughts and impressions for us in the form of images, symbols, prior memories and anything else stored deep into the basement of our consciousness and subconscious.

Harry Edwards, a well-known English medium, said in his book, A Guide for Developing Mediumship – that “when one “sees” or “hears,” it is not the eyes and ears that see and hear. These organs receive radiations or impulses, and these are transmitted along the nerve systems to the brain, where they are translated into recognizable experiences that are projected onto the mirror of the consciousness.

This extremely rapid and complex brain process allows us to experience clairvoyance. Think of spirit communications as an endless network of infinite users where you exist as the instrument (medium or user) and Spirit is delivering clairvoyant information through an infinite channel of energy wavelengths. This process although theoretical is how it can be explained and conceptualized for our intents and purposes.

We as mediums are sensitive to the energy vibrations of those in Spirit. The more sensitive the instrument of one the more one can pick up.

There’s More Than Meets The Eye

Now that you have a little more knowledge and background on the inner workings of clairvoyance let’s dwell on what the third eye can see.

An older man named Bob who attended our book study sessions many years ago at Arlington Metaphysical Chapel used to say “if you can imagine it then it can be possible.” Clairvoyance like the other senses is all based on your creativity. More importantly, what you have stored in your grey matter serves as a storage deposit for those in Spirit to pull from and create clairvoyant images.

One can see so much through our own physical eyes – color, lighting, shapes, contours, range, depth, texture, design, material, mood, body language, movement, personality, behavior, symbols, age, gender, size, learned lexicons, environments, creativity, and art to name a few.

The gamut of what the third eye can see is limitless. One can use their clairvoyance to see and validate Spirit by placing a name to a face of someone they know, initials, symbols, professions, cause of passing, age, relationship, physical appearances, personality, objects, scenes, memories, and any prior possessions of theirs to just to name a few.

Nine times out of ten most your clairvoyant seeing will come in the form of thoughts. These thoughts can be usually rapid quick. Not much detail in color or clarity. They can even be cartoon-like. Experiencing clairvoyance is no different than when you daydream. If I were to say envision now in your mind a pink elephant in the room with you. If you were able to without difficulty you are experiencing clairvoyance although this is being invoked for educational purposes.


Clairvoyance is a visual sense but at the end of the day, all of it is being processed through our brains. Expanding your clairvoyance will take years of practice, devotion, discipline, meditation, creativity, and mastery. It is important to know that if you feel your clairvoyance is limited then expand it by creating a visual language between you and Spirit. The more extensive that relationship and language between you and Spirit in that infinite network we are connected to the greater the flow of information that can process through you as an instrument.
