Clairvoyance isn’t the mystical process we’re lead to believe, but instead a willed process of visualization. It’s a matter of being able to systematically call up relevant information on demand.
Most people don’t consider themselves to be clairvoyant simply because we are not taught to be – we’re taught in verbal rather than visual language. We’re often told that something is so, but we rarely take the initiative to “look” for ourselves. There’s very little permission for this way of gaining information.
With our sixth chakra closed, it’s hard for the harmonic to develop between all seven body chakras. But, as we allow ourselves to access our intuition, we open this chakra. That’s really all it takes – permission. As we give ourselves permission to see the unseen -as we validate our intuitive hits – we open this chakra wider and wider. The following exercise is a fun way to experiment with opening your third eye.
No Psychic Ability Required: Door One or Door Two?
Oftentimes in life we are faced with an either/or, yes/no type situation. We dither back and forth, weighing the alternatives with our rational, analytical brain. Sometimes though it’s best to step back from what we see with our eyes and go within – accessing the whispers of our soul.
Here’s an exercise I teach and often use myself when I’m stuck between Option 1 and Option 2.
Pick something simple to start with: let’s say that you can’t decide whether to go to the beach or the mountains for an upcoming three day weekend. You have pros and cons for each, yet you can’t make up your mind. Take out a piece of paper and write the word Beach on one and Mountain on the other. Turn the pieces of paper upside down so you can’t see which is which and shuffle them around until you don’t know which is in your left hand and which is in your right. Hold one in your left hand during the following meditation and the other in your right hand during the meditation
Now close your eyes and get into a meditative space. Be alone, no phones, no computers to interrupt your reflective time. Sit in a comfortable chair with your feet flat on the floor. Bring yourself into balance by grounding to the earth. This is an important step as you want to be sure that foreign energy (the thoughts and feelings of others) is not a factor in your choice.
Breathe in and center. Bring all your awareness to the center of your head. Find your space, between your ears, behind your eyes, in the center of head, your seat of intuition. Breathe out and ground. Feel your body sink a little bit deeper into your chair. Breathe in and center, breath out and ground. Repeat until you feel focused and calm.
Now imagine two doors in front of your closed eyes. See the door on the left with the word Door 1 standing out in nice graphics. See the other door on the right with the word Door 2 in the same large graphic style.
Observe both doors – one on the left, one on the right.
Now, as you look at both doors, see whether your eyes are naturally drawn in one direction. Which direction? Left or right?
Does one door seem to shine or stand out more than the other one?
Describe out loud to yourself both doors. Get a good understanding of the qualities of both doors. Decide which one is your choice – left Door 1, or right Door 2.
Now, come out of meditation. You’ve just used your intuition, your psychic ability, to listen to your own internal wisdom. Not outside voices or the shoulds of the world, but your own sense of what is best for you.
Now, turn over the piece of paper in your hand that corresponds to your intuitive choice – the piece of paper in your left hand, representing Door 1, or the piece of paper in your right hand, representing Door 2.
Where will you spend your three day weekend? The Beach or the Mountains??
Finding and living prosperity is all about checking in with your intuitive self. Knowing deep within that you have the answers to what is best for you. Looking within, often, and with awareness, is what brings this chakra into alignment with your highest and best self.
Cheers! You’re officially using your clairvoyant abilities. Wasn’t that fun and easy?
