Do you see signs and synchronicities everywhere you go? Are you one of the people who have immensely vivid, almost prophetic dreams?

If this feels relatable, there is a high probability that you have a rare gift of clairvoyance. 

Clairvoyant people get spiritual downloads everywhere they go. They can decipher deeper messages ad attain wisdom from simple visual cues and complex extrasensory inputs.

If you’d like to know more about this unique ability and learn how to develop clairvoyance, read on.

This is all you need to know about the rare gift of seeing beyond the limits of the material world. 

What is Clairvoyance?

Clairvoyance is one of the four clairs, or psychic senses that allows us to perceive the world from a higher perspective and see through the mirage of illusions.

In a literal sense, the word ”clair” means clear, and ”voyance” translates to seeing.

Clairvoyant people use not only their sight but also the sight of the Third Eye to perceive, understand, and predict events.

This unique gift is often referred to as ”second sight” or ”extrasensory perception (ESP)”.

Although all four clairs are psychic senses, ESP is most commonly associated with the word psychic.

People who have it can read energy based on images and visualizations they get in dream or awake states.

They can read clairvoyant signs and symbols to gain insights about events before they happen or read events from the past.

They can also communicate with and see astral beings, guides, and angels.

The information they gather brings clarity and wisdom that goes beyond what the rational mind or science can explain.

7 Signs You Are Clairvoyant

Have you ever questioned if you are clairvoyant?

Clairvoyants can gather information about people, events, and places that go beyond what’s known in the 3D, usually through flashes of images, visions, and dreams.

If so, then these are the most common signs to look for that will help you confirm you are one of the gifted:

1. Great Peripheral Vision & Spatial Intuition

Clairvoyant folks have strong peripheral and Third Eye vision. It feels as if they can intuitively ‘’see’’ what is happening behind their back or even in another room.

If you are one of the gifted, you’ve likely had a feeling you’ve been at a specific location, even if you are physically there for the first time.

You may even get flashes of memory related to a place as if you’ve already spent time there.

Most clairvoyants have great spatial intelligence and an inbuilt GPS-like system that helps them recognize places based on visual memory.

This spatial intuition allows them to perceive beyond the limitations of space. 

2. Able to See Past & Future Events

Have you ever had a vision where you saw an event unfold in the future, only to discover you predicted it?


Have you ever ”seen” a moment from someone’s past to discover it really happened? If you are a clairvoyant, you have likely had many Deja Vu‘s and visions. 

Clairvoyant people have insights, or visions, that go beyond time.

For instance, you may be able to paint an accurate snapshot of a moment in someone’s relationship, like an argument, without knowing about it or being there physically when the moment happened.

They can describe what both people wore, where they were, and how the argument unfolded. If something similar happened to you, know that it is your extrasensory perception giving you flashes of information.

3. Rich Imagination

If you are clairvoyant, you find solace in daydreaming. When things get tough in life, escaping into fantasy becomes your favorite way to find peace and raise the vibration.

While all people daydream and imagine, clairvoyant people have detailed daydreams that feel real and have incredibly rich inner worlds.

Those who are clairvoyant can create vivid scenarios and feel like they are genuinely living in a fantasy.

They are often great artists and storytellers because they don’t need external stimulation such as a movie or a book to get inspired. 

4. Seeing Signs & Synchronicities

If you are clairvoyant, you can get accurate messages from visual things like tarot or movies.

Clairvoyant signs and messages often come in the form of spiritual confirmations, such as number sequences, angel numbers, repeated images, or visual symbolism like birds or patterns.

To others, these may not make sense and may be dismissed as coincidences, but a clairvoyant always has an intuitive knowing that these signs mean something and that everything they see is interconnected.

Clairvoyant people are much more alert to subtle signals from the Divine.

For instance, while a non-clairvoyant might notice a cloud shaped like a wolf’s head, a clairvoyant will see it as a confirmation that their prayers are heard, or automatically sense it has a deeper symbolism.

If you are one of the blessed, no matter what life throws at you, or how tough things get, you will notice signs that a higher force is supporting you.   

5. Able to ‘’See’’ Energy, Such as Aura or Spirits

Clairvoyants are often gifted aura readers who can get insights about someone’s personality, past, or the state of their spirit solely based on how they radiate.

So, if you are clairvoyant, you can see orbs, auras, and glow around people, animals, or objects.

They can see spirits of light and darkness and identify paranormal presence using sight.

Some have had a close encounter with a spirit and were freaked out because they could see the celestial being in the form of light or shadow, but others couldn’t. 

6. Great at Visualizing And Reading Visual Information

Being clairvoyant means that you have a superpower of visualization. They can not only predict feature events but actively create the future.

Their gift helps them set clear intentions and manifest with ease, much faster and more precise than non-clairvoyants.

If you are one of them, you find it easy to manifest your dreams. However, you can also make your fears come true, which can happen if you are not in touch with your gift and your vibration is low due to trauma or stress. 

Everything a clairvoyant visualizes can quickly materialize in the 3D world, good or bad.

This is why it’s essential to be mindful of what you picture in your mind and keep negative daydreams in check. You are more powerful than you may be aware of. 

7. Your Dreams Are Vivid

If you are gifted you will get plenty of clairvoyant signs and hints through dreams, and your dreams will often feel vivid and almost prophetic.

You often find that your dreams are like an omen, signifying or predicting something is going to happen in 3D soon.

For instance, you may dream of a high school friend you haven’t seen in years, only to bump into them a few days after they appeared in your dream. Or, you may have nightmares for days, only to discover your higher self was trying to signal something bad is going to happen. 

For clairvoyants, dreams feel like real life.

If you have this Clair, you feel deeply affected every time you wake up, and you usually remember what you saw in a dream.

Many clairvoyants have mastered the art of lucid dreaming and can change their perspective and level up spiritually while in lucid states. 

What is the Difference Between A Clairvoyant and Psychic?

Although the terms ”psychic” and ”clairvoyant” are connected, these two things are not entirely the same. The word ”psychic” is broader than the term ”clairvoyance”. 

A psychic is a person who uses intuitive and extrasensory information to gain a greater understanding of the world around them.

A psychic reads energy using one of the four clairs and works to enlighten others and share messages from spiritual realms.

In other words, a psychic can use clairvoyance, but they can also use any other of the four clairs, and not necessarily or only clairvoyance. 

Having a gift of clairvoyance indicates that you have psychic ability and are psychic, as you possess the psychic gift of clear seeing.

So, being a psychic can include the gift of extrasensory vision, but it doesn’t have to. Being a clairvoyant always means you have one of the four psychic abilities. 

What Does it Feel Like to Be Clairvoyant?

Clairvoyants can foretell how something is going to happen and take necessary measures of precaution on time, or use their gifts to give insight or advice.

They are usually great in fortune telling, and tarot, and are often good astrologers and aura readers.

However, having such a great gift can sometimes feel like a burden.

This is especially true for those who dismiss it or aren’t aware of its full potential. Here is what it feels like to be a clairvoyant:

If You Are an Empowered Clairvoyant

An empowered clairvoyant trusts their intuition and dreams. They understand when their gift is activated and are aware of both the good and the challenging aspects of it.

They can read characters, predict events, and gain a deeper understanding of someone’s past without much second-guessing.

If you are empowered, you blend the information you get through the five senses, especially sight, and the messages you get through the second sight with ease to make wise decisions, create art, or help others.

Those who are confident in their gift have no trouble channeling messages for themselves and others.

They are alert to visual signs, take synchronicities and signs seriously, and use them to grow and expand consciousness.

Because they are not led by fear or self-doubt, they can receive messages with clarity and accuracy.

If You Are an Unempowered Clairvoyant

Receiving messages through your second sight can be extremely frightening and confusing.

If you are unbalanced, skeptical of your gift, or over-intellectualize, you may question your sanity, or fear you’ll go crazy.

This is especially true if you’ve had encounters with beings from other dimensions, angels, shadows, or have had prophetic visions.

You may unconsciously use your gift to escape reality or resort to maladaptive daydreaming.

When the gift is not developed or embraced, it can be hard to decipher what is real and what is imagined, and it can be hard to trust intuition.

The downloads you get may be a source of panic, paranoia, and turmoil, and you may choose to ignore them and gaslight yourself completely.

How Can You Develop Your Clairvoyance?

So, now you know what clairvoyance is and what it means to be an empowered psychic.

The next step on your journey is to strengthen your psychic ability and figure out how to develop clairvoyance at your own pace.

These are some tested and tried practices for beginners that can help with that process: 

  • Find a creative outlet. The more you get in tune with your creative side, the stronger your ability to envision will be. Intuitive drawing, painting, and creative writing can all help you get in touch with your psychic ability. 
  • Journal your dreams. Your dreams have potent meanings. Make it a point to journal them and try to find dream connotations, and decipher messages behind them. 
  • Practice mindful visualization. Your imagination is powerful, so make sure you keep your frame of mind as healthy and positive as possible. When down, visualize healing white light or something/someone that makes you happy.
  • Reflect on your visions. Take your gift seriously. You are having visions for a reason, and your guides are trying to tell you something. Instead of trying to ignore your intuition, sit with the messages you are getting. 
  • Meditate. Meditation will help you balance the Third Eye Chakra and open up your energy field to receive visual downloads.


Being a clairvoyant is a blessing that can help humanity evolve and reach higher levels of consciousness. Embracing it comes with great blessings, so if you are one of them, take your time to develop it. You’ll be astonished at how illuminated and wise you’ll become.
