The third eye or the divine eye as it is sometimes called, is located in the mid-point between the eyes. Many esoteric and spiritual traditions, among them Mahayana Buddhism and Taoism, have practices devoted to opening and perceiving enlightened wisdom through the third eye.
When the third eye is open and activated it becomes possible to see with psychic vision. The psychic ability of clairvoyance emanates through the third eye. This is the ability to receive energy information through figurative, symbolic and realistic images. An important psychic tool, clairvoyance empowers you to perceive the past, present and future through images and visions.
Unlike physical eye sight, clairvoyant sight is not always three dimensional and true to physical form. Images may be symbolic, metaphoric, cartoon like, flat or full of color and movement. Clairvoyant sight might also not be highly visual. Images can be intuitively sensed, known and felt. This might not initially seem to make much sense. Through our physical senses the nose smells, the ears hear and the eyes see. Psychic senses are more intertwined and often rely on one another to interpret energy information in a way that we can fully understand.
Be careful not to ignore and pass over clairvoyant images if they surface in an unexpected way. Many people become frustrated when they do not readily perceive clear visual images when beginning to develop clairvoyance. For some, the expectation is to clairvoyantly see in the same way that the physical eyes see. However, instead of initially seeing an image, some may intuitively know what an images looks like. Others may intuitively feel an image. It is even possible to become aware of an image through inwardly hearing what it looks like.
If you experience these kinds of images, do not dismiss or disregard them. Pay attention to what you receive and allow your psychic senses to converge and flow into one another. As you do this, they begin to work together and to provide accurate and understandable information.
