Clairvoyant from the French, from clair ‘clear’ + voyant ‘seeing’ (from voir ‘to see’)
It makes me chuckle a little when I think about that definition. Me, clear sight? Ha! My human eyesight is terrible; I am nearly legally blind in one eye with coke-bottle thick lenses on my glasses. As a kid, I endured years of vision therapy in a vain attempt to get my eyes to focus together, not realizing this was the key to unlocking my gift. It took me until the 27th year of my life to understand why my vision was so awful and why it is truly one of my most important assets.
Through meditation and conversation with Spirit, I came to the understanding that my body’s natural state was for my eyes not to focus, which is what allows me to truly “see”. By my eyes not focusing on an object, I am able to see around the object, almost as if I am viewing it from another dimension.
As a child, my clairvoyance was much different than it is now. I was completely open and unaware that what I was seeing was not normal and different than what everyone else around me saw. When I would see a person who was in pain, be it a headache or backache, their energy body would light up with a grid. On this grid, I would see where they were experiencing pain, usually in a red or flashing color; then I would see a part of their body light up blue or green where the energy needed to be released in order to alleviate the pain or discomfort.
My sight has shifted and altered some over the years, allowing me to see differently, at different times, and for different reasons. For example, during an intensive course a few weeks ago, as my instructor channeled Spirit, I saw her engulfed in a flowing river of energy. The energy surrounding her was translucent and without color, though I could see waves washing over her, as if she were standing in a vertical river stream. When she stopped channeling Spirit, I was able to see how the movement of the energy changed.
Last month, I was watching a friend as she was preparing to go on stage to talk about her new book and business ventures. I was distracted by a large, frosted-glass like white orb a few feet above her head, but I didn't think much of it at the time. In discussion with her afterwards, I casually mentioned what I observed above her. She confided in me that she was deep in discussion with the Archangel Gabriel during that time. It was his white light who I saw hovering above her head.
My abilities are constantly and shifting evolving, giving me the tools that I need at any given time. I used to think that my poor eyesight was a disability, but now I understand that it is more like one of my super human abilities. Though it is tiring for me to wear glasses, as they force my eyes to focus, I sure am glad that I have them to help me see clearly with my human eyes. I am grateful to finally appreciate my gifts and no longer view them as something to be ashamed of, but something to revere and honor.
