What is a clairvoyant? You might think that it’s someone who has intense third eye visions and foretells the future. But that’s not it at all. Anyway, that would be a little scary – and dramatic – don’t you think? So, what is a clairvoyant? Let’s “see” (pun intended!).
What is a Clairvoyant?
Okay, let’s answer the million dollar question and define clairvoyant! The answer is pretty simple. Ready?
A clairvoyant is someone who receives intuitive information visually.
Told you it was simple!
You see, there are four main ways to receive intuitive information. Clairvoyants are people who receive this information visually. Some people call this third eye visions, or second sight.
You can also receive intuitive information by:
- the auditory channel – clairaudience
- feeling/sensing – clairsentience
- gut feelings/knowing – claircognizance
Frequently Asked Questions
Do clairvoyants really have third eye visions?
Not always. It’s really not that dramatic. Sometimes people will have a vision that is similar to watching a movie inside their mind. Other times, they might just see an image in their mind’s eye.
Also, it’s important to know that the images are not always literal – they are often symbolic.
Here’s an example:
Let’s pretend someone comes to me for a reading – let’s call her Jane. She is planning to get married the following month.
I may not “see” Jane walking down the aisle, but I may see an image of a wedding ring, white flowers, a church, or some other thing that symbolizes wedding to me.
Another clairvoyant might see something different, something that symbolizes wedding to them. They may actually get a picture of Jane walking down the aisle.
Do psychic and clairvoyant mean the same thing?
No. Somehow, over the years, people started using these terms interchangeably, but they are not the same. This is just one of the myths about psychics.
Some psychics are not clairvoyant at all. They receive their intuitive information in other ways.
Remember, there are four ways to receive psychic information, and clear seeing is just one of them.
What is the third eye?
The third eye is a chakra that is located on your forehead, between your eyebrows. When people have third eye visions, they see them in this area, which is known as the mind’s eye.
It’s called this because you are seeing these visions in your mind.
Can I open my third eye?
Absolutely! The best way to increase your second sight is by practicing visualization and meditation. An easy meditation to open the third eye is all you need to get started. Try it out and have fun…you don’t have to be a professional psychic.

What’s it like to have a vision?
Honestly, it’s very subtle. And sometimes, it doesn’t even feel real.
Some people describe it as watching moving pictures inside of their head in their minds eye – it’s like watching your own personal television! Other people may just see a still image. For me, I see things both ways depending on what I’m doing, or what type of reading I’m giving.
Sometimes I see pictures in motion, which is a lot of fun. Other times, I may just see images which are literal or symbolic.
Do third eye visions tell the future?
Not necessarily. Many times, especially during readings, psychics will get pictures of events that are going on right now, in the present. They may even see things from the past that are affecting the present.
Future visions are not totally out of the question though. One woman I know reported getting a psychic flash moments before a minor auto accident. Luckily, everyone was okay.
Is it like what I see in the movies?
Have you ever seen a movie where a psychic:
- is seeing intense images of a future event?
- locates a missing person by following a vision?
I’ve seen these stories too, and I always think, “I wish it were that easy!”
It’s not. Things are always so crystal clear in those fictional images. Remember, in real life, there can be a lot of symbolism, and it is much more subtle.
