Oh, The Sights You Will See!

Clairvoyance and Bodywork

By Cyndi Dale
[Energy Work]

There are many clairvoyant styles, and understanding the differences between them can clue you in to your own visual spidey sense. I’ll fill you in by sharing information from my latest book, Awaken Clairvoyant Energy.1
Clairvoyance means “clear seeing.” Many of us think that only a select few can see intuitive visions, but the truth is we’re all innately equipped with this capability. As stated, however, there are several clairvoyant styles. As with anything, you’ll probably be better at one or a couple of styles than others. Pinpointing your expertise, or developing a new one, will help you better trust this key to obtaining pictorial insights, revelations, and wisdoms.
Before I further explore the clairvoyance styles, I want to delve into the million-dollar question: How can the viewing of psychic images improve your client work? My response requires that I explain how clairvoyance works, which is energetically.

The Complication and Beauty of Clairvoyance

Clairvoyance is one of three communication gifts. The other two are clairaudience, which involves hearing messages that are verbal, and clairempathy, which consists of sensing, feeling, or becoming aware of impressions. All three categories entail the processing of subtle energy.
By and large, clairvoyant images are composed of subtle energies that form visions. Just because the images are made from ethereal data doesn’t mean they are meaningless in relation to the physical world. Rather, observations received from the subtle realms can be even more powerful and precise than those obtained through physical means.
Why is this so? Subtle energies underlie everything that appears in physical reality. They form the latticework that holds harmful emotions in the body, retains stubborn inflammation, and supports the beliefs causing pain. By clairvoyantly envisioning the subtle energies adversely affecting the body, and also picturing possible solutions, the intuitive bodyworker may make inroads in their client work.
You’re probably using your clairvoyant skills when performing bodywork more frequently than you realize. Have you ever been working on a client’s knotted shoulder and envisioned them at age two? The clue to today’s unpleasantness is often packaged as an image explaining the past.
Then again, you might have had a dream about a client the night before you saw them. For some reason, you were using a specific healing technique. The next day, you employed that technique. The client experienced great relief. This type of experience qualifies as clairvoyance too, as does a picture that popped in your head during a session.
There are client benefits you can achieve with your clairvoyance, including the following:
• Perceive the starting spot for a massage or healing.
• Gain a vision showing where to work (or not) on your client.
• Picture the potential result of your interactions.
• See an activity that would create further change.
• Receive a warning about the client that might keep them (or you) safe.
• Give an insight about how to best work with the client.
• Prompt and help interpret a client’s clairvoyant insights.
• As per the cause of a client’s discomfort, observe the physical, emotional, mental, spiritual, and lifestyle factors creating the problem.
The complication and beauty of clairvoyance is that there are many styles, each of which employs a different chakra or set of chakras, which are subtle energy organs. Chakra centers function like physical organs except that they are able to transform subtle energy into physical energy and vice versa. Every chakra is also a full-service communication vessel, managing a specific range of physical, psychological, and spiritual functions. Plain and simple, each is able to receive a certain type of intuitive data, send it to the brain for decoding, and send a message back into the world.
Clairvoyance always uses the sixth chakra, which is located at the brow. Also called the third eye, this center receives, analyzes, and emanates visions that are distinctly colorful. The sixth chakra can also pull data out of visions seen by the physical eyes and figure out their hidden meaning. In addition, the third eye is responsible for those Technicolor dreams you enjoy every so often, whether they are experienced when you are sleeping or when daydreaming.
Technically, all visioning accomplished through the third eye is called classical clairvoyance. Some of you might already be sending up a hurrah, finally able to label your multihued gift. Others of you might be in the doldrums, shaking your head.
“I don’t get colorful pictures like that,” you might be thinking. “I’m not clairvoyant, I guess.”  
But you are. Just take a look at all the clairvoyant styles.

Classical Visioning

Using the sixth chakra, found in the forehead, classical clairvoyance conveys these forms of visions:
• Inner visions, which appear in the mind’s eye as if drawn by supersonic crayons.
• External visions, which reflect psychic messages, although the image comes in through the physical eyes.
• Dreams, as long as they are colorful. As mentioned, they can be invoked while sleeping or during a daydream.
Overall, classical images can help you see the past, present, and potential future, and might be literal or metaphoric.

Verbal Visioning

Employing the fifth chakra, situated in the throat, and the sixth chakra, located in the brow, this style involves adding words, lyrics, poems, and other forms of verbal or clairaudient communiques to your visions. In my experience, these verbal cues often appear as captions that explain an image.

Prophetic Visioning

Using the seventh chakra, located at the top of the head, prophetic visioning displays black, white, and gray images. On this continuum, black indicates something is negative or harmful, white reveals what is positive and beneficial, and gray hints at what is nondescript or unknown.
In general, prophetic visions steer us toward enlightenment and offer spiritual revelation. They can also distinguish between healthy and unhealthy choices.  

Empathic Visioning

Clairvoyant pictures don’t always emanate from our visual or verbal centers. They can also be transferred from any number of empathic chakras and turned into an image in our sixth chakra. The resulting picture, whether or not it has a caption, can help explain a physical sensation, emotional impression, mental knowing, or spiritual awareness.

Future Visioning

Clairvoyance often involves receiving pictures of the future, usually through our sixth chakra. Typically, you’ll sense that these visions are future-oriented, but they often arise in reaction to a client’s musings. “Should I do X or Y?” they might wonder aloud. “Will X or Y help my pain?” The key to interacting with a future image is to figure out if it conveys a possibility, probability, or certainty. As I explained for classical visioning, ask questions. Obtain additional visuals to see if you can pinpoint what category a vision might fall into and go from there.

Healing and Manifesting Visions

Frequently, and often through the third eye, a vision might show you what has caused a crisis and how it might be cleared. Visions can also be held in the mind’s eye to draw a positive energy into a client’s life, which is the basis of manifesting. As per my advice regarding classical images, ask for additional pictures to gain further healing or manifesting revelations.
Above all, in reference to your clairvoyance, trust yourself. If your eye is caught by a billboard and it seems to directly respond to a concern you were pondering, pay attention. If a nightly dream parts the veil and suggests a course of work for a client, consider it. And practice. I keep my clairvoyance in shape by using it for my everyday life in small and tiny ways.
