For most, clairvoyance is shrouded in mystery. People feel that it is a gift allotted to a select few human beings. While it does come easier to some than others, everyone is capable of developing their own clairvoyance. Often intuition will kick on when someone goes through a traumatic experience. The catch is that most people have not learned how to develop it because they don't come in contact with that education in their daily lives and in the media they consume (yet). We are seeing more media openly discussing psychic abilities, tarot, dream interpretation and similar subjects which shows an evolution in our consciousness. If you want to develop your abilities, here are some ways to start. Developing clairvoyance can help you make safe decisions for yourself in relationships and in work so that you get guidance from the other side (your guides, soul and higher self) about the best course of action that will lead you to more happiness and less pain.
1. Process Your Emotions Daily
Sit down in a quiet place with a journal. Ask your higher self (the part of you connected to your heart and not your ego) what you need to know about your spiritual development. Listen and write down what comes to mind. Just focusing on your development will help. To understand the relationship with the higher self, check out a book called 'The Sacred Journey: You and Your Higher Self' by Lazaris. The next step in processing your emotions is healing your past experiences that are affecting your reactions in the present. Any unhealed experiences will attract negative experiences in the present. With your journal ask your higher self what experience needs to be healed. Ask how that memory is affecting you now. Give yourself a new memory that was positive and healthy and watch it happen in your mind's eye. Write down how this new memory affects you now. For example you can give yourself loving, supportive friends and parents and a spiritual teacher. Instead of making ego based decisions, you naturally now know how to make heart based healthy decisions in relationships and feel safe expressing yourself emotionally. Do this exercise once or twice a day or even when you triggered. A trigger is when you have a strong emotional reaction in the present that's stronger than it should be and throws you off. This process of healing your past is the basis of clairvoyant development. Another important part of this process is understanding how every experience you have, especially the ones that bother you have a secret to be unlocked. This has to do with your shadow. To understand more about this check out 'The Shadow Effect by Deepak Chopra, Debbie Ford and Marianne Williamson' as well as 'Working with Your Shadow by Lazaris.'
2. Eat a Clean Diet
The pineal gland and pituitary gland are the gateway to the other realms. For most people these glands are not functioning. In order to become clairvoyant you can use certain foods to decalcify your pineal gland. Avoid eggs, eggs, fluoride and alcohol as well as processed foods. Eat a plant based diet without additives and preservatives. The more superfoods you can get in your diet the better. Cilantro, apple cider vinegar, raw greens, chlorella, spirulina, maca, cacao, garlic, lemons and alkaline water are all helpful for opening that gate. This is a very important part in harmonizing the systems of your body to work together so that your energy can flow properly and interact with the environment. You become a stronger antenna just like a big radio and you're able to tune into the station with a more clear connection. Stay away from refined sugar and heavier foods like steaks, pastas, pizza and dairy. This will change the way the energy flows through your body and improve your digestion. Digestion has been said to be the most important part of spiritual development.
3. Meditate Daily
When I first started doing readings once per week I noticed that if during that week I was meditating more, it was much easier to pull accurate information (impressions) for the reading. When I would get distracted and forget to meditate as much or not prioritize it, I would only get snippets of accurate information. The old adage 'practice makes perfect' does apply here folks! Think about it this way, the more you exercise your bicep, the stronger that muscle gets. It's the same with meditation. The more you intentionally tap into that energy and use that part of your brain, the easier it gets. This will help you tune into your bodies needs and create healthy boundaries for your body as well. The body is affected by stress and listening to the body's innate wisdom can help you use your time in healthy ways whether that means finding more positive environments or making healthier habits.
4. Read Books About Clairvoyance
Keep it simple and don't overwhelm yourself. If you're just beginning to understand how our thoughts interact with our reality, start out with the movie 'The Secret.' A great workbook to develop your clairvoyance is 'The Psychic Pathway by Sonia Choquette.' One of my teachers always says that he has a strong psychic power called 'reading.' This really drives the point home that understanding our energetic body and understanding how to develop intuition is something that can be learned just like any other subject. Some books I read when first starting out were: 'Autobiography of a Yogi by Paramahamsa Yogananda,' 'Biology of Belief by Bruce Lipton' and 'The Kybalion by The Three Initiates.' I also really like Doreen Virtue's books which often account real life experiences she has had interacting with the other side. Finally, I highly recommend 'Mediumship Mastery by Stephen Hermann which helps explain how to connect to deceased loves ones. I think Cindi Dales 'The Subtle Body: An Encyclopedia of The Energetic Anatomy' is also helpful in understanding the energy fields. Reading blogs and following the astrological movements can also help you. My favorite astrology sites that I've used are: www.cafeastrology.com, www.astrologyking.com and www.mysticmamma.com. We also have videos on HOI.TV to help you learn astrology and get your own natal chart. Eventually you'll be able to meet someone and know their sign!
5. Take Classes with Professionals
More than anything, having an experienced professional guide you through the learning process will be invaluable. They will help you understand the common pitfalls and how to overcome them. Just as an athlete needs a great coach, a clairvoyant needs a trustworthy mentor. Don't make things harder on yourself by just flailing around in the dark without structure or direction, get someone to help you who has been where you are in their development and worked through it. House of Intuition has a team of gifted healers who can guide you in your development. There are readings available to help you move through blocks and figure out what your next step is as well as classes in person or online through www.HOI.TV. Every year, Naha teaches an 8 Week Intuition Development Course in person at our Echo Park location. Afimaye has been connected to the other side his whole life and he can help you in readings to see what you can work on. Being able to ask questions can really help you get clarity and move you through confusion in this new level of awareness.
6. Take Care of Your Body
To make this process easier on yourself, exercise. Yoga helps to unlock clairvoyance because it harmonizes the systems of the body, making you more sensitive and releasing negative emotions. However, if you just walk or do intuitive movement, you can still benefit. The better you treat yourself, the easier your clairvoyance will develop. Get adequate sleep, eat regularly and don't push yourself to the point of exhaustion. You need your health to be able to be a strong channel for spirit. If your body isn't digesting regularly, it will be full of toxins and you will struggle to become clairvoyant. Yoga is great for your digestion! Exercise helps clear your energy field so you can be 'clear.'
The more you start to immerse yourself with other people that work as healers, the easier it will be. You will start to understand the chakras and the different types of clairs more readily. As other clairvoyants share their process with you, you'll know how to deal with the fears that can come up when starting out on this journey. For all you metaphysical junkies out there, looks like you may have found a new hobby! Truly the ability to help others see what is blocking them, what their potential is and how to heal is something that can save their life so this work is one of the most brave and compassionate fields to step into. Let others support you and know that if you practice, it works!
