Are you new to intuitive development? How can you supercharge your psychic sensitivity? You aren’t limited in options! The sheer volume of information on strengthening clairs, meditation for opening chakras, and processes to cleanse your aura is staggering. Perhaps, you’ve partner-practiced boosting your ESP, taken workshops on mediumship, or cleaned up your diet to clear your channeling abilities. While some practices become part of your daily routine, others likely go right into the bin.Continue reading “Honing Your Psychic Sensitivity”
One of the questions I get asked frequently as an intuitive is: how can I develop my psychic senses? I’ve written several articles about other clairs. Today, the focus is on development of clairaudience or clear hearing.
To recap, the psychic sense of clairaudience often happens inside the brain as an intrusive thought, or in more rare cases, outside the ear as we would typically process hearing. Usually the latter happens when our guides really want our attention.

Fall, leaves, fall; die, flowers, away;
Lengthen night and shorten day;
Every leaf speaks bliss to me
Fluttering from the autumn tree.
I shall smile when wreaths of snow
Blossom where the rose should grow;
I shall sing when night’s decay
Ushers in a drearier day.
We’ve crossed the threshold in the Northern Hemisphere.Continue reading “Fall, Leaves, Fall”
A powerful recurring vision I’ve had with clients is about ancestry. This doesn’t always imply blood ties; more often the paths we walk, the ways we honor ourselves, and the seeds inside our hearts that want to bloom open and spill out their petals of purpose, acts of service, or creation.
This vision always shows lines of humans, one hand on the shoulder of the person in front of them. Up mountainsides, down valleys, stretching across vast deserts, and the deep oceans.
It is a claiming.Continue reading “What’s Your Spiritual Name?”
I was lying in bed with my dog one spring evening. We were alone in the Lake Superior cabin that I love. We’d spent a great day hiking to some local waterfalls and I was tuckered out and content.
My head hit the pillow and I closed my eyes. Immediately, I saw the entire room in my mind’s eye. My attention pulled toward the doorway to the hall, and a man entered the room. He slowly walked toward the bed. He looked very ordinary; short brown hair, lean, average height to slightly above. Mid to late 50’s. He possessed one very unique feature.
His glowing red eyes.
My dog sat up and growled low in his throat, fixated on our late night visitor.
I knew there was no possibility on earth that I was dreaming this.
My dog’s head traced him as he stepped closer to the bed, I saw his movements in my mind at the same time.
He stopped at the edge of the bed. I felt dread wrap its fingers around my heart.
He reached out to me…
I’m going to stop right there, because not all clairvoyant experiences are this heart-pounding!
Clairvoyance has been life altering for me- both the spooky experiences, and the ethereal.
If it weren’t for my clairvoyant abilities, I never would have seen what heaven looks like. I wouldn’t have been able to see an Archangel, or have developed the ability to spot fellow healers.
If it wasn’t for clairvoyance, I wouldn’t be as effective in my healing practice.
So, are you interested in boosting your clairvoyant skills?
In this series on clairvoyance, we’ve talked about what it looks like to see clairvoyantly, and I’ve shared 20 signs that you might be clairvoyant. In this post, let’s look at strategies you can use to boost your clairvoyance, today!Continue reading “How you can Become More Clairvoyant”
Clairvoyance is a psychic sense that means “clear seeing.” Suspect you may be clairvoyant? Here is a list of 20 signs that you may be developing your third eye.
- You are a visual person. Not an auditory person, or a person who needs to tinker with things. You prefer visuals, pictures, photos, videos, any kind of illustration. These help you process directions, and to break things down in a way that clicks for your brain.
- You often describe things using the language of sight: “I see what you mean.” A clairaudient may say, “I hear you.” A clairsentient may say, “I feel you.” Your expressive language revolves around the visual.
- Visual details are your thing. You may not remember the sound of the orchestra, or how the orchestra’s music made the hair on your arms stand up, but you remember the details of the musicians’ clothing, their instruments, the details inside the theater. Your memory banks may contain an entire visual story you created while they were playing. Do you remember maps, what people were wearing today, the Macy’s department store window? You probably LOVE Pinterest!
- You are a vivid dreamer. Dream recall is not a problem for you (this may be on the uptick if you are opening up). You remember specific details of who was in your dream, and what certain details of the setting and action looked like. You may see faces of people you do not know, and don’t think you’ve ever seen before. These could be deceased ancestors, guides, or other members of your Spirit Team!
- You imagine plans from start to finish. You see an outcome for projects. People doing jobs, coming together to share in something. You are good at overseeing these plans because you have such an eye for detail. You may be a long-range planner or event planner.
Clairvoyance is likely the most well-known of all the psychic senses. It is the visual psychic sense, the sense associated with our human sense of vision. It is the realm of the third eye, and because of that is suited to slick visuals on the big screen, which is how many of us are familiar with the term clairvoyant. (Or perhaps the line, “I see dead people.”)
Who can forget M. Night Shyamalan’s The Sixth Sense?
In real life, clairvoyance isn’t nearly as heart-pumping.
That doesn’t mean it isn’t exciting.
Clairvoyance roughly means “clear seeing.”
As with any psychic sense, energy flows the path of least resistance. If you are someone who is fairly visual in your waking world, you are likely stronger in your clairvoyance than some other psychic senses. And like any psychic skill, clairvoyance can be developed.
What is it like to see clairvoyantly?
It is honestly a hair’s-breadth away from imagination. Images are mostly seen in your mind’s-eye (third eye). This looks like what you see when you are visualizing the setting and action in a novel you are reading.
Occasionally you see clairvoyantly with your own eyes; something that doesn’t happen as often for me. (Although, I do have a friend who sees earthbound individuals-ghosts-much like Haley Joel Osment’s character in The Sixth Sense. Her case is rather unique, and not many people see the earthbound in this way.)
When I started my awakening, I hadn’t had many clairvoyant experiences, and I was a little scared to. I thought it would look like something out of a horror movie.
I was wrongContinue reading “Clairvoyance: What is it like to see clairvoyant images?”
I was a total rock hound as a kid. I remember the amazing gifts sent from my aunt and uncle; wall hangings with rainbows made of crystal studded pipe cleaners, little heart-shaped rocks embellished with lavender springs and tiny quartz points. When we visited my relatives in Montana, I was enamored in the rock stores. Our big family vacation out west was when I collected my first piece of amethyst. I still have it.
As a teenager I moved away from crystals and gravitated toward people. I remember a friend pressing a piece of rose quartz into my palm and asking me to feel the essence of the rock.
I thought she was a nut.
Looking back, she was probably telling me I needed a bit more love in my life!
At this juncture of my life, I am proud to say that yes, I can feel the essence of that rock. I have embraced crystals and their magic, and I hope to share some of their magic with you!Continue reading “Working with Crystals: The Magic of Crystal Grids”
Want to boost your psychic sense of clairsentience? Clairsentience is the psychic sense known as “clear feeling.” This is the third part of a series of posts on clairsentience. In part one, I introduced how energy follows the path of least resistance. For clairsentients, this includes sensing physiological reactions in the body as well as experiencing emotions in response to an outside and unseen stimulus. In part two, I shared 25 signs that you might be clairsentient, and not realize it! In this final post on clairsentience, I am going to share some tips and practices to help you develop the gift of your psychic feeling.Continue reading “How to Become More Clairsentient”
Clairsentience is the psychic sense known as “clear feeling.” In the first post on this clair, I mentioned how energy follows the path of least resistance. For clairsentients, this includes sensing physiological reactions in the body as well as experiencing emotions in response to an outside and unseen stimulus. In Part 2, we are going to review 25 signs that you might be clairsentient.
- You identify as sensitive.
How often have you heard, “you’re too sensitive?” Too many to count? This phrase is often shared by others as a way to highlight your uniqueness (and probably not in a kind way). Sometimes you feel like it’s all too overwhelming, and other times you embrace your empathic nature. Either way, you FEEL.
You feel all the things. People’s emotions, the drama that went down in the conference room before you walked in, the news, break-up ballads, commercials, causes, other folks’ eyes on you. You are a highly sensitive person (HSP) all the way around.
2. You are observant.
Whatever its origins, you are a watcher. You would have been the lookout who caught the first whiff of danger for our paleolithic ancestors. Cliff! Saber-tooth cat! You are observant of people’s behavior and notice tiny details in your environment that others overlook.
3. You may identify as an introvert.
You recharge your batteries during alone time. Being on your own helps bring you some clarity while other people’s stuff gets cleared out from your aura during quiet time. You may also need more time alone after energy clearing to rebalance and replenish your energy supply. Oh hello, there you are!
4. People spill the tea.
You have folks knocking on your door, wanting to share their latest family drama. You may find getting work done a challenge because you are constantly interrupted by colleagues coming to chat with you. Strangers may stop you on the bus to tell you about their lives. By holding space for others, you are gifting them a healing with your clairsentience, and your presence. You may wind up learning way more about people than you are comfortable with!
5. You have an open mind.
You try to hear all sides of a situation and not judge. It’s part of what makes you a great listener. Some folks may get upset because you don’t land on the side of the fence that they want you to. You do your best to truly understand others regardless.Continue reading “Are you Clairsentient? -25 Signs you can feel”
The sweet taste of a ripe mango. The hoot of an owl. Sunrise on a mountaintop. A massage. The scent of your grandma’s perfume.
We take in multitudes of sensory information from our environment via our five senses. Our five senses work in tandem with our brains, and messages in our cells, to react in pleasure or pain to stimuli around us. This biological system that helps keep us safe from threats by gathering information from the world around us, also serves to keep us grounded in our bodily human escapades, and combined with our cognition, provides us with a gamut of experiences that enrich our human lives.
The Other Side of the Mirror
We have spirit senses that mirror the earthly and bodily senses too. These senses are often referred to in new age terminology as “clairs,” from the french word, clair or “clear.” Like our five senses, they help us make meaning of stimuli; they can be used to keep us safe and grounded, allow us to meaningfully connect with others, and they help to enrich our daily human adventures.
Many folks may recognize some of these terms, either from pop culture as plot devices in movies, TV shows, or novels, from friends or family- or perhaps from their own psychic exploration.Continue reading “Intuition 101: We all can connect”
I came out of the Spiritual Closet, again. My profile picture on my woo woo IG account is now my actual face and not some random close-up of a north woods birch tree. If people from my mid-sized city take a gander, they’ll recognize me, as much as they may recognize a camera-shy introvert (I like taking pictures, not being in them).
Cue the double take. “Isn’t that…?”
I was a public school teacher for 16 years.
Until this month.
I’m now a free agent, so here I am.
My former colleagues, families, and students who stumble across this page may recognize the camera-shy, introverted, and calm teacher. And they may not like this version of me. But, it’s time to step into alignment.
I’ve been moving down this road for a while now, dodging behind trees and scraggly bushes, staying hidden in the dark, occasionally stepping into a moonlit patch of grass when I encountered a similar wandering soul. Those conversations were often brief, until I started to find others who were like me.
My close friends and family knew I was “woo woo” the first time I came out, about ten years ago. It was a scary awakening (I was raised to respect science, not the unexplained new feelings exploding out of my body-hello synesthesia, or the visions of deceased people coming to me at night). I managed to learn to deal with some of these abilities and random experiences, and most of my folks were supportive, even if some didn’t agree. I figured out quickly who I was opening up to, and who I wasn’t.
So here I am. The anxiety is high again. People can actually see me, and I’ve spent so many years hiding.
I’m equal parts wired and thrilled. It’s taken a decade to get here, and the last several years I’ve felt like I have been pulling myself out of sticky thick quicksand. I may be thoroughly coated in mud, but I am putting my face out to the general public. Finally, owning The Weird. Embracing who I am and dropping the facade.
So here it is: Hello everyone! I am Andrea Graham, an Intuitive Healer and Psychic. I can sense emotions, feel energy, see and hear messages from spirit guides and angels, and I receive information in intuitive downloads. (Did I mention I love long walks in the woods, crystals, and everything Tarot?)
I hope to be connecting more with you all soon. Let’s talk Awakening for those who are just starting their journeys. Tarot spreads. What creates a good healer. And boundaries for the wayward night walkers who wake you out of a deep sleep. (Being a Kindergarten teacher really helped with boundary setting.)
While there may always be folks I still omit truths to, there will be a little less hiding behind paper thin birch skin on this new path. Glad to be with you, woo woo crew. See you in the woods.
