The word Clairvoyance comes from the french word clair which means “clear” and voyance which means “vision.” A clairvoyant is someone who receives intuitive information visually. Some call this third eye visions or second sight. A clairvoyant sees the truth about the past, present, future. Clairvoyance is the natural development of the sixth sense. When your third sense is developed you are able to see things others cannot such as spirits, energy fields, auras, and visual premonitions. A clairvoyance sees what others do not.

Alright, so, I’ve talked a bit about how clairvoyance isn’t everything in the astral, and I’ve tried to explain to numerous beginners why they need to drop their “gold standard expectations.” Still, I can’t help but feel I’m not getting through to some of you behind that iron wall of self-doubt.
I’d like to drive my point home once and for all with a visual reference, which is something I’ve never personally encountered (not saying it doesn’t exist out there). Let me give a quick disclaimer that this is based on my personal experience. I’m pretty confident in putting it out there due to the fact that it matches up with what others describe, but don’t panic if this doesn’t ring true for you in some fashion. As a final note, keep in mind that this post is aimed at aspiring astral travellers who are building their skill from the ground up (in other words, folks who weren’t born with their third eye wide open).
The Gold Standard (AKA “What You’re Expecting”)
Behold, the “HD 1800p Clairvoyance” most beginners dream of, aspire to, and hate themselves for not achieving after a stubborn week of practice. Please, please stop that. Listen to me: what you see above is a level of clarity that isn’t even achievable on the physical plane for some people. Think about that. Just sit down and think about that.
Can you see the photo above with natural 20/20 vision? If you said yes, don’t take that for granted, ‘cause that’s a biological privilege. Even more important, if you said yes, ask yourself this: would your experience on this plane be any less real or important if you couldn’t see perfectly (or at all)? Would you doubt the reality of your experiences here? I’m going to assume you just said “no.” Great! Time to hammer this nail a little deeper.
The Common Reality (AKA “What You’re Doubting”)
Are you squinting? I sure am. Kind of frustrating, isn’t it? But it is what it is. Chances are, if you’re just starting out, you’re going to spend a lot of time looking at, well, that. -points above- Know something though? It’s real. If you can’t accept that as your starting point, well… I hate to tell you, but you’re probably going to waste away waiting for a miracle to move you past the years of practice and determination that are required for most folk to sharpen their “second sight.”
That’s about all I have to say on the matter. Remember, “your mileage may vary.” I’m just putting this out there for the sake of those who share my experience. I know a lot of beginners I’ve talked to idolize those of us who seem to astral travel effortlessly. Take this as a friendly reminder: I, for one, was where you are once. I was not born with perfect clairvoyance. I have not achieved “the gold standard.” I depend on ALL my clair senses to have a rich experience on the astral. I did not develop my skills overnight and you shouldn’t expect to either. Chances are? The only thing standing between you and the astral is that big ol’ iron wall of self-doubt. Kick that thing down. Good luck! <3
Water scrying is the art and practice of gazing into water to see the future or receive a vision. Water scrying is a great way for clairvoyants to develop their skills, but can also be done by anyone. -Mod J
To start, you are going to need a bowl or something that holds water. Preferably the bowl or water holding object should be a solid color inside so you don’t get distracted by patterns. Black, white, or a metal bowl are ideal because these are colors that are easy to gaze at for extended periods but any solid color should work.
Fill the bowl with water
Now set up your space. It helps to turn off the lights and have a candle or a few around the bowl giving some light but not close enough that you see the reflection in the water.
Now this is the hardest part, gaze into the water in the bowl and let your eye lose focus. Your vision might get a little blurry but try to fight the urge to look around and refocus your vision. After a while of doing this you might be able to correct the blurriness without losing focus on the water. Around this point when your gaze softens some kind of vision should appear in the water. It’s important to understand that what you see might be a real depiction of what your scrying for/about but it’s more common for you see symbolic images instead. Learning to translate these symbols takes some time and practice so keep working at it.
Another thing to note is that you might feel like your mind is just making you see things in the water that isn’t there, and i guess on some level that is correct. The water it’s self isn’t what’s producing the vision, you are receiving because you asked to, and are using the water and bowl as tools to help perceive it.
Here are ways to help enhance your water scrying that i know of:
You can charge your bowl over night with tea made from certain herbs. I like to steep some mugwort and lavender in my bowl to charge it while i sleep and empty it in the morning.
You can a few drops of essential oils to your bowl while scrying, or before to help charge the bowl and water’s energy. The oily surface can also help keep you from getting distracted and gives your eyes something to focus on.
Another way to prevent distraction is to put a small crystal at the bottom of the bowl around the center. It gives you a fixed point to look at, but I’ve noticed for me that is often cut off some of the vision and everything will move around the crystal rather then appearing in the whole bowl.
Using your bowl for offerings. I find this helps charge and enhance my scrying bowl’s energy by putting offering in it when i work with other spirits and deities.
Sometimes it can also help to instead of building up the energy in the bowl do a cleansing and put some salt water in the bowl to soak.
You can also use moon water, sun water, or any magically enhanced water that might be specific to the type of reading you are doing. I find moon water is always good for all water scrying.
If you try water scrying and find it doesn’t work for you that’s alright. It’s not for everyone, and even those who do it regularly have off days where they can’t get anything to come through. So give it a few tries before you decide if it’s something for you. Good luck with your scrying! -Mod J
🌌Place some mugwort underneath your pillow, preferably before the bath so you don’t forget.
🌌Make a satchel or sprinkle these herbs loosely in your bath.
🌌Light some white candles and line the tub with clear quartz, burn mugwort incense - optional.
🌌While in the bath, do your usual meditations for astral projection. I recommend listening to some binaural beats. Meditate and visualize yourself already astral projecting. Imagine your spirit separating from your body, see yourself sitting up and getting out of bed/the bath. Try to envision this for the entire bath, remember you are already astral projecting.
🌌Take this bath right before bed. You might also want to drink some mugwort tea.
**Pregnant people should NOT drink mugwort as it can induce premature labour. Please research any herbs before using them.
What you need!
• Bay leaves - aids in clairvoyance and stimulate psychic powers.
• Lavender - aid in meditation, recalling dreams, clairvoyance, and helps open the third eye.
• Rosemary - Aids in having visions and prophetic dreams, creativity, and to recall past lives.
• An empty tea bag or cloth and string to use as the sachet (I reuse tea bags to make my sachets)
While creating your satchet keep your intent in mind, that you want this to help aid you in enhancing your psychic abilities!
All you need to do is put the ingredients into your sachet, then carry it with you or hang it in a space you do your work in. For a little extra energy in it, place near a quartz crystal or let it soak of the energies of the sunlight or moonlight. :)
I’ll start this off by saying there are multiple models in the occult for the physical and Astral senses. This model is the one that rang the most true to my intuition. I found this originally in a book titled The 21 Brotherhood of Light Lessons. The physical senses get information from the physical world, and the Astral ones read information from energy waves and pattens.
Physical Senses and their Astral Counterparts
Touch - The physical sense of touch may be the oldest one we have as living organisms. The Astral counterpart is Psychometry, which allows the seer to sense energy through touch. Typically someone with a developed sense of psychometry can touch an object owned by someone and know much about them.
Taste - This sense is a specialized form of touch that allows us to sense the chemical composition of an object. The Astral counterpart to this sense is Energy Absorption, which allows the seer to intake the energy of other beings and objects. Psychic vampires strive on this sense but never make the full use of it. This sense can allow a user to switch their energy signature through the use of objects like stones, masks, people, animals and even symbols or mental constructs.
Smell - Allows us to sense the chemical composition of something from a short distance. The Astral counterpart to this sense is Aroma Detection, which allows the seer to interpret energy through Astral scents. As funny as it sounds these psychics can smell your soul, smell danger coming, and often find a sweet beautiful taste when experiencing a divine moment.
Hearing - Gives us the ability to sense physical vibrations from a distance. The Astral counterpart is Clairaudience, which grants the seer (or should I say hearer? ;P) the ability to hear Astral sounds, spirits, and at times thoughts. These are the psychics that can hear plants, animals, ghosts, etc…
Sight - Gives us the ability to sense a certain spectrum of light energy interacting with the physical world. The Astral counterpart is Clairvoyance, the ability to see the Astral atmosphere they are in. These people can see forms that relate to the energy of others and objects, receive visions, and generally have an easy time Astral protecting since humans are a very visual animal and having sight in the Astral soon ushers in other senses.
Intuition - We consider this sense to be physical since it doesn’t perceive energy patterns but rather works to predict the physical outcomes of certain situations based on previous experiences and unconscious cues. The Astral counterpart to this sense is Inspiration, which allows one to have an energy signature flow through their whole being, activating relevant thoughts, feelings, memories, desires, etc. This sense guides intuition towards manifesting the inspiring energy.
Telepathy - We will also consider this a physical sense since it works in the physical proximity of other beings. Animals have a highly tuned sense of telepathy and can understand eachother with minimal physical cues. Humans with a strong sense of telepathy are called empaths. The Astral counterpart to this sense is Spiritual Communication which takes telepathy outside the limits of your physical vicinity and can allow for communication between two beings through the Astral, through dreams, or even through thoughts. These people will inspire thoughts and feelings in others simply by being in their presence.
Most people have experienced these Astral senses before but haven’t trained them. We expect these senses to work as well as our physical ones right from the start but this isn’t the case. Just like we have to learn to judge our physical senses through trial and error, we must do the same with the Astral. As babies we touch objects to gain an understanding of how things feel to the touch. We fall a thousand times in our errors of judging distance, and learn to be more perceptive in our sight. We learn that our senses may lie to us, like a beautiful candle flame that pleases the sight but brings pain to the sense of touch if we didn’t yet know that not all beautiful things feel good to all the senses. It is the same with extra-sensory perception. We must train, fail, succeed, misjudge, and eventually learn to make a reasonable assessment based on previous experiences. Just like our physical senses, our Astral ones are not infallible and must be tested in order to learn how to properly interpret the information we receive through them. Accuracy comes with practice.
These are the psychic senses, and the abilities that they have. Knowing, and learning to use the clairs can help you gain information on the world around you. All of these senses are the spiritual extensions of your already existing senses. You already possess them and use them, you just have to remember how to. You do not have to be born with a divine gift in order to use these skills. All you have to do is be open to the experiences you are having, and learn how to progressed them. As long as you take time to progress their growth you will be able to learn, and use them to their full potential. Everybody has these skills to some extent, but they may not be proficient enough for you to get the full experience out of, and need to be exercised in order for them to allow you to perceive the world.
Clairvoyance is the six sense’s ability to see. This allows you to see the spiritual world with your inner eyes, and perceive sites that you never would have seen without it. Through clairvoyance you will receive images, colors, and visions that will allow you to interpret the energies around you in order to gain insight. This is one of the more used, and well-known spiritual senses, because of its famousness, and the fact that it is something that a lot of people can connect to in their sense of perceiving. What you may see in your clairvoyance is usually easy to interpret, and to understand, because most entities are already very used to interpreting things with their eyes. When someone sees something in their spiritual vision they will be able to literally see it in their mind’s eye. Seeing something in your third eye would look a lot like recalling a memory in your head, with how clear it is depending on the Entity receiving it. This is a very good skill to get a hang of if you are a visual person, and will greatly improve how you experience your craft.
Things that will help you learn, and experience your clairvoyance:
1) Meditation is always a very good idea when trying to learn any type of spiritual technique, or skill. It allows you to really focus upon it, and unlocked the secrets gradually through your own growing spiritual understanding. So one should always give meditation a try especially to improve your clair abilities. So from here on out just assume that everyone of these spiritual senses could have meditation underneath it. (I’ll still probably put it under each one.) Some meditation posts: Meditation, Void Meditation, Focal Meditation, Journey Meditation
2) Visualization will help you to better in vision certain shapes, and constructs in your mind’s eye. This will also allow your third eye to be more open to see things in it, and will greatly increase your clairvoyance, because you are using your third eye more.
3) Pay attention to see if there is any images that enter your mind, so that you can try to interpret them.
4) Try to use zener cards in order to improve your viewing skills.
Clairaudience is the six sense’s ability to hear. This allows you to hear the spiritual world through what I would like to call your spiritual ears. This will allow you to perceive noises, sounds, and other audio stimulants from the spiritual planes of existence. This will allow you to hear voices, spiritual audio cues, and maybe even energy itself if you become proficient enough in it. Clairaudience is great for people who are verbal, and need to hear things in order to gain insight easier. Experiencing clairaudience will sound a lot like disembodied audible sounds, but with no discernible source, a lot like when you hear someone call your name. If you can learn to trust what you are hearing you can have a great communication with the entities that are around you, and the spiritual world in general.
Things that will help you learn, and experience your clairaudience:
2) Sound awareness will make you more sensitive to the sounds around you helping to progressed your spiritual ability to hear, and pick up on low usually unperceived sound.
3) Learn to try to feel into music. You can do this by listening closely to your favorite songs, and trying to feel the energy behind them.
4) Try to imagine sounds happening in your head. This will allow your psychic ears to get more use to trying to hear sounds that are not there.
5) Ask for your spirit guides to make noises that you can perceive with your spiritual ears.
Clairsentience is the six sense’s ability to feel. This is the sense that will allow you to feel into information, and be able to read it just from the feelings that you are getting, without any other stimulus tipping you off to that information. This is a pretty hard one to explain but it is very different from clairtangency, and clairempathy, because in this practice you are feeling the straight out from the energy information, you get no other signs, but you just know it. This is a way to clearly sense the world around you.
Things that will help you learn, and experience your clairsentience:
2) Learning to trust your gut is a very important part of clairsentience, so that you can learn to differentiate from information that you create, versus the information that comes to you via your perception.
3) It is also very important to be aware of your thoughts, some of these could be the higher realms communicating with you.
4) Look at pictures of people, and try to tell everything about them just simply by looking at them. Do not judge them, but much rather allow your intuition to come out.
5) Do automatic writing by just allowing your gut to tell you what is right to write. This will help train your senses.
6) Think about something, and see if any information comes up about it randomly.
Clairescence also known as clairscent, clairalience, and clairolfaction is the six sense’s ability to smell. Clairescence is one of the more odd ones you don’t hear too much about all the time. this is your ability to spiritually smell, and it’s like perceiving odors, and fragrances that do not have any known source in your surroundings. This is a very interesting way to get insight from your perception, via smells you associated with other constructs, or information. This process is not done with your physical nose, but will still smell in the exact same way. Through the interaction of these smells you will gain insight into the information that is around you.
Things that will help you learn, and experience your clairescence:
2) Try to imagine smells appearing in your vicinity that are not presently there.
3) Smell things, and see if you can get information on that thing that you shouldn’t be able to. Pretty much what I’m saying is go out, and smell things.
4) Pay attention to any smells that come into your perception, so that you can analyze them
Clairtangency also known as psychometry is the six sense’s ability to touch. This not only allows us to feel spiritual energy with her hands, but it also allows us to read into the information that that energy holds simply by touching it. Simply by touching something you can gain so much insight into the construct that you are making contact with. Once you get good enough at clairtangency you won’t even have to touch the physical object in order to get insight into its energies, all you would have to do is feel the energies around it. Clairtangency can be done with any part of your body, but is primarily done with your hands, because of the very sensitive hand chakras that reside within your palms. Being able to feel the energy around you with a spiritual touch can help you in many ways in your craft just by being a very practical way to feel energy.
Things that will help you learn, and experience your clairtangency:
2) Taking different objects into your hand while trying to feel into them is a great way to train, and hone your skills with clairtangency.
3) Pass your hand over objects, and see if you can get a sense of where they have been, or the energies that they produce.
4) go to a museum, do not touch the exhibits, but raise your palm up to them, so that you can feel into their energies, name off some stuff and then check the description to see if you’re right.
Clairgustance is the six sense’s ability to taste. This is another one that is kind of out there for most people. This is the ability to spiritually taste things, even if they do not reside in your physical mouth. If you know how will be able to taste things energetically, and from this experience you will be able to gain insight into the energies that you are tasting.
Things that will help you learn, and experience your clairtangency:
2) I know this sounds weird, but in your mind try to taste people’s energy to see if you can tell the difference in its flavors, Essence, and substance.
3) Whenever you taste something try to actually focus in on with that taste is. In order to get used to the sense of taste.
Clairempathy also known as just empathy is the six sense’s ability to sense, and feel emotion. Empathy will allow you to feel other people’s emotions, and feelings in order to gain insight into them, and the world around you. Empathy is a very powerful connection that if used correctly, and with a lot of understanding can make interacting with all things a lot better. With empathy you are able to pick up on everything that an entity may be feeling. It is a very deep personal insight that allows you to experience things from others perspectives at least in an emotional sense.
Things that will help you learn, and experience your clairempathy:
