Everything is created twice. First in the mind and then in reality.
–Robin Sharma, author of “The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari: A Fable About Fulfilling Your Dreams Reaching Your Destiny”
People often ask me what the difference is between clairvoyance and being mindful. Clairvoyance is the psychic ability located in our forehead which we all possess and, when developed, allows us to see, interpret, communicate and create our world from our infinite imagination. Mindfulness techniques allow us to be present and find this clairvoyant center which we can then develop and learn to use to heal our lives and loved ones.
This month, I took a weekend workshop in Mindfulness in Schools with an organization called Mission Be. When I was a teacher in elementary and middle public schools just 8 years ago, I was not allowed to teach meditation or even use visualization exercises; now it seems these modalities are becoming mainstream in the schools. I wanted to find out what the Mindfulness movement was all about. Carin Winters is a New York teacher who now lives in California. Since I have done the opposite, I could see we had a lot in common and I could learn from her.
Through the weekend, I was introduced to all the aspects of mindfulness and how it can be taught to children with an emphasis that adults teaching mindfulness need to practice it themselves. The techniques to becoming more mindful are wonderful for children and involve connecting with the present moment through breathing, visualizing, movement, and affirmations. The training was meant to not only introduce teachers to this curriculum but to practice all the mindfulness activities ourselves. While we were practicing ourselves we found that we became more intuitive.
In fact, Mindfulness Practitioners find that an interesting by-product of practicing the present moment, especially through visualization is an increase in intuitive awareness. They experience visits from deceased loved-ones, encounter deep spiritual answers, and see their next goal happening before their eyes.
The natural next step is to organize these random intuitive experiences by developing as a clairvoyant. Clairvoyant development offers a way to organize random intuitive ideas into a context that can give meaning in our own lives and for others. As a clairvoyant, you take control of your intuition to use it on purpose.
Here is an example of a mindfulness technique using the clairvoyant intention to “read and heal” a relationship.
Sit in a comfortable chair, close your eyes and smile. Imagine that you are standing in front of a small pool of water, 20 feet across. It’s just too far to cross. You look to the other side and see a loved one who you would like to communicate with more (alive or deceased). See the person looking across at you, smiling and willing to connect with you. Imagine a rose in your hand that holds all the love you have for this person. It is full and you see the color of this rose. You hold the rose out in front of you and it travels across the pond to the person on the other side. See them receive it and accept it into their heart. See them fill this rose with their love and send it back to you. Receive this rose and bring it to your heart. Feel the connection from your heart to theirs. Now see the pool between you start to swirl at the center as it forms a whirlpool sucking all the water out. Now you can walk across to each other, see into each others’ eyes and embrace.
This clairvoyant exercise was a visualization with an intention to heal a relationship with a loved one. Know that it works in the material world to heal everyone involved. You feel better when you think of this person, it feels easier to reach out and the relationship begins to heal. As you look for evidence of this working in your daily experiences, you gain certainty that these visions are real and you are acting on your world as a powerful creator.
When you are practicing being present and visualizing regularly, you begin to open your clairvoyant center – the place in the imagination where we “see” creation in its first form as thoughts and ideas. I see that what I teach, developing the “seeing” part of you, is the next and natural step beyond mindfulness techniques. In my classes you learn a mindfulness meditation called “Find your space” which allows you to be present so you can see and then you learn to communicate from this new place of awareness.
