Gaze at Clairvoyance through the Crystal Ball of Science

Have you ever taken a second look at something? You could have sworn you just saw a pink elephant across the room! Maybe the circus lost its star performer. Or maybe you saw a spirit animal in dimensions beyond the 3D world.

If you just can’t shake that pink elephant from your mind’s eye, it’s a psychic vision. However, if you can easily turn that pink elephant into a baby monkey, then twin acrobats, or whatever your heart desires, it’s just your imagination playing tricks.

In essence, it’s not the way a vision appears that makes it psychic or not, but rather the source and the meaning behind the vision.

Clairvoyance means “clear sight.” Clairvoyants can literally see what is invisible to the naked eye. They visualize or dream about animals, people or objects, opening a secret window to the truth of the matter. In the mind’s eye, they may see auras, spirits, the past, present or a possible future. Is it a lucky break? Let’s see how it works.

How Clairvoyance Works

Imagine that a little girl’s tooth falls out. Naturally, she puts the tooth under her pillow before falling asleep. And in the middle of the night, a twinkly fairy flies into the room, and slips a few gold coins under her pillow in exchange for the tooth.

Yes, we all know that the tooth fairy is right up the woo scale with Santa Claus and the Easter bunny. But roll with me for a second. In this story, the girl represents the physical (sensory) world, while the tooth fairy represents the subtle (psychic) realms.

The physical (sensory) world is composed of solid matter that we digest with our five senses. However, if it doesn’t have a tangible color, shape and texture, it’s subtle (psychic) energy.

Subtle energy encompasses the mental, emotional, and spiritual properties of the Universe. Of course, traditions around the world have their own names for this mystical force. In Ayurvedic medicine, it’s called prana, and in traditional Chinese or Japanese medicine, it’s called chi or ki.

Both the physical and subtle energies have a lot in common. Both process information, manage day-to-day interactions, and are made up of energy.

As modern science now recognizes, everything in the universe is made up of energy. However, the vibrations of physical energy are measurable with our modern toolkit. Subtle energy, on the other hand, operates outside of that tiny range of frequencies. Who knows, maybe one day we’ll get some new shiny tools to measure the subtle energies. But for now, we can only measure so much.

So, back to clairvoyance. Both types of energy (physical and subtle) contribute to clairvoyant visions. Without going into the source of the messages (hopefully a benevolent, all knowing being!), this is what happens when a psychic message is received:


Message Received

When a psychic message comes knocking, it is picked up by the auric field (or the protective boundary of light and sound around the body) that matches its frequency.


Message Shared

The auric field then passes the message into its corresponding chakra. You can read more about the chakras here.



The chakra interprets the message, but it needs a little help. So, it sends the message up the spine to the brain. The brain then adds its two cents, based on past and present circumstances.



The brain decides what to do with the message. And finally, sends a response into the world through the same mechanics.

As you can see, clairvoyance is a seamless melding of the physical and subtle anatomies. What today seems miraculous is actually just a touch outside of our modern tools. But, as we raise our energetic vibrations, we open ourselves up to more cosmic insights and hopefully science will catch up.

Of course, psychic messages can come in many forms. If clairvoyance isn’t your soul gift, rest assured that we all have access to hidden knowledge about the past, present, and future. Stay tuned for more articles about the other psychic gifts!
