A Clairvoyant (Psychic) is NOT OMNISCIENT! What does a clairvoyant do?

What is a clairvoyant and what do you do? How is it different from a psychic? I can’t tell you how often I get asked those questions so I thought I’d take the opportunity to explain. There are many gifted psychics out there who offer a variety of reading sessions using their specific abilities and areas of expertise. My goal here is to clear up some common misconceptions. Mystics and healers are not new to this New Age we have entered into. As people awaken to a greater purpose they are looking more and more to the spiritual and light worker community for help as we all take a step up in our evolutionary transition. It’s  time to demystify the mystics! 🙂

You had me at HELLO!

I get an interesting mix of reactions when I tell people what I do. Of course there are some that get very excited and want a reading on the spot which is not always convenient but sometimes fun at parties. 🙂 Others go into complete fear and in a sense run for the hills. When that happens I’m always amused because clearly at some level they think I’m a clair-voyeur and read them without permission. Let me assure you that I have no interest in reading every one of your countless pictures and shouting it from the rooftops when we meet. The word clairvoyance means “clear vision” and a clairvoyant is “one who sees clearly”. You are much more than your physical body and what you do for a living. I look at your spirit self and acknowledge it with a spirit to spirit HELLO.

“Oh, your psychic. What am I thinking?”

Many of my professional psychic friends, myself included, are posed this question when we tell people what we do. I can’t speak for all of my friends but I think I can confidently assure you we don’t know what you’re thinking. We don’t know what anyone in your life is thinking. We are not omniscient. We do not know everything about every single other psychic, healing modality and/or metaphysical subject there is to know. Again not speaking for other psychics about what they to but what I do in a clairvoyant session is look at the energies and pictures you’re carrying around that are not yours. It is validating and healing to get a hello on who you are not so you can clear what you’ve probably suspected a good deal of your life wasn’t quite you. The healing in a reading goes one step farther when you get a hello on where you are working, what you are healing and what you are creating as spirit in a body.

Are you ON all the time?

Imagine yourself in the middle of a very loud and bright sound and light show where you could not only see but feel and hear every vibration going on around you all the time. It would be overwhelming! It took me years to figure out that what I was experiencing was because I was ON and didn’t know how to own my space. I have not only learned to turn it down but to be in my space so I can go out and experience life without having to isolate on a mountain somewhere. I have also learned (and I teach this as well) how to protect my space from foreign energies and how to clear out anything I may have picked up during my day. As a natural gift and ability I’m always ON but by being in my own space, in neutral and toned down I don’t become overwhelmed.

Psychics are human!

We have our own growth periods, make mistakes, have good days and bad days. Our relationships are not always perfect, we get angry, have desires, experience hardship and have bodily functions like everyone else. We work on our gifts, heal ourselves and seek to understand. Life is not easy as a psychic because of the judgements placed upon what we do but for me I do what I do to help and comfort people. Yes I know there are psychics who are interested in perfect predictions or are about ego and money but for me I do what I do to offer neutral insight to help you heal and understand yourself better. I do what I do because I see your aura get brighter and I know your life will change. My goal is to guide you back to YOU. When you are living from your own truth sans programming or other influencing energies you have the freewill to create the life of your choosing.~Shine Your Light Debbie

Did you turn off your ability to ‘see’?

The term psychic comes from the Greek and by definition means ‘of the soul’. There are many mis-conceptions about the term ‘psychic’ and having psychic abilities. There are several very talented psychics out there who predict the future and that’s great but what about using and opening up to YOUR abilities in the present?

Everyone has and already uses at least one or two of their psychic abilities. If you’ve ever walked into a room and felt uncomfortable or just ‘had a bad feeling’ about something you are using your intuition.  Intuition is one ability and another is the ability to see energy. Those of you who practice holding an image in your mind are using your ability to see!

The question in the title asks “did you turn off your ability to see” but it might be more appropriate to ask WHEN did you turn it off? You had this ability when you were born and as you grew up you were probably invalidated for using it. Most children have their abilities ‘turned off’ at a very young age for various reasons. A child sees or senses something and in their innocence usually blurt out what they see whether it is proper to do so or not. They also see things that their parents don’t want them to see.

At a very young age we begin to invalidate what we are seeing as real because we’re told it’s our imagination, we’re crazy, wrong or we’re not really seeing it and the more we are told this the less we trust it. If you happen to ‘see’ something you’re not supposed to energy gets thrown directly at your 6th chakra. It’s hard to ‘see’ with a big blob on your third eye!

Open your inner eyes and see!

As with all your psychic abilities you need to feel safe and trust what you are experiencing. Let’s face it, in the world today there are things we choose not to see. We are lied to by our politicians, employers, friends and those with an agenda. We don’t want to see pain, suffering, poverty or that someone we love is not being truthful. There are times we don’t want to see ourselves and own our own truth. It’s not always comfortable to see the truth so it takes courage to turn this ability on.

When you see clearly, you begin to separate the truth from the lies and this includes those lies you’ve told yourself or bought into. Looking at yourself is the first step toward opening your inner eyes again. You’ll be amazed at how much clarity you gain by merely deciding and giving yourself permission to see!

Just for fun, close your eyes for a sec and create a mental image picture of a rose. See it clearly with its petals, stem, leaves and even thorns. Can you see it? Now, allow all that ‘stuff’ on your third eye that says you are wrong and you can’t see to go into the rose then like magic make the rose disappear. Believe it or not you just used your psychic ability to see and cleared some energy in the process!

How simple and fun was that? The truth is, it really is that simple! The more you clear and access your own abilities, the easier it is and the more you will trust what you see. You are not wrong for seeing, it’s not your imagination AND you may be psychic not crazy!~Shine Your Light Debbie
