Twelve Members of the Clairvoyant Family

Developing your psychic abilities is a life-long endeavor as it requires practice, support, and commitment to be successful on an ongoing basis. Clairvoyance is one of the psychic abilities that is most practiced, but like other talents in this area, it is thought to be limited to just one form of the skill. However, this psychic ability consists of at least twelve versions that can be explored and developed.

The twelve forms of clairvoyance are as follows: 1) apparitions, 2) astral projections, 3) auras [seeing colors], 4) dreams, 5) mediumship, 6) visual psychic impressions of the past, 7) visual psychic impressions of the present, 8) premonition visions, 9) symbols, 10) remote vision, 11) seeing sound, and 12) déjà vu. Each of these skills shares the visual component, and all of them function beyond the limits of your physical sight. Your psychic abilities are used in conjunction with your physical senses but can be used independently from them as well.

It takes practice to understand the different nuances within the clairvoyant family, and observation helps you identify them. You can start the process of understanding your clairvoyant talents by reviewing the definition of clairvoyance and journaling your visual psychic impressions. The definition of clairvoyance or clear vision is the soul’s capacity to capture visual information from beyond the limits of our physical sight.

Support from like-minded people is helpful when you are trying to validate your experiences. It is more difficult to develop solely on your own. Commitment is necessary since we all go through trial and error while we are developing confidence.

Depending on the version of clairvoyance, you may be accessing it with or without your physical sense of sight, and you can explore the different experiences you have with your third eye. Located in the middle of your forehead just above your eyes, the third eye is the area where you use your clairvoyance. You may notice that your third eye is active in conjunction with your physical sight when you “see” two images of reality at once! One image is with your eyes and the other with your “third eye.”

You can learn the nuances of this psychic ability and discover your reactions when you are in the moment of a clairvoyant impression. This is done by observing the circumstances when the impression occurs. This means that you should notice if there was a trigger for the experience or if it came naturally. You can further break down your experiences by recognizing when you are using your clairvoyance consciously, unconsciously, or when your physical sight is involved.

The conscious nuance of clairvoyance occurs when you may have your eyes closed, but you use the images at your third eye to “see” a situation. The unconscious nuance occurs when you are in a dream or meditative state, and you recall the impressions you received during that time. Finally, noticing a physical manifestation involves your physical sight. You will find that journaling these experiences are helpful.

Journaling the various impressions will allow you to further understand the strongest versions of your clairvoyance and enable you to focus on them. The more segmented you can be, the more you can refine your skill. As you monitor each session of clairvoyance for accuracy, you can gain a greater understanding of the specific clairvoyant form as it pertains to you.

When you are successful at accurately gaining information, it is fulfilling and will provide you with energy for further exploration. The study of each experience allows you to discover more about who you are and will guide you on your journey of self-discovery. Patience is another necessary ingredient when developing your psychic abilities. The best reward for spending the time to learn more about the versions of clairvoyance is personal growth. It does not hurt knowing you have an edge in life either!
