Most of us don’t bother to check out what we’re seeing when we close our eyes because we think it’s just going to be a bunch of static or we think that whatever appears doesn’t matter.
That’s what I used to think until I started looking at what popped up when I closed my eyes. It definitely wasn’t static and it did matter.
There were images, and they had meaning, and if I paid attention to them, they actually gave me useful information, information that I couldn’t get with my eyes open.
I’m not the first to find treasure behind closed eyes. The Ancient Greeks in their wisdom created a blind prophet named Tiresias who was famous for clairvoyance, (which literally means clear seeing and is defined as being able to see things that are hidden to the eye).
Tiresias’ blindness goes to the point that when you look with closed eyes (and Tiresias’ eyes were permanently closed), you get the deepest truths. In first century play Oedipus Rex, Tiresias knew the truth when everyone else, including our hero, Oedipus, was clueless.
Fast forward 2,000 years, and modern science also has an interesting take on inner seeing. Contrary to what most people think about clairvoyance, science is discovering that seeing with inner eyes is not just some kind of magical thinking, but may actually be a process we are already using but just not aware of.
For example, in a clever experiment, a Dutch neuroscientist named Beatrice de Gelder plotted brain activity of people who had one blind eye. She blocked their good eye and discovered they could see people’s facial expressions with their blind eye. Yes, you got that correctly, deGelder’s experiment showed that people were accurately sensing people’s facial expressions with their blind eye, although I should point out that they weren’t aware of it.
Equally interesting was what was going on in the brain when this inner seeing was happening. De Gelder found that some of the brain activity was actually in the brain’s visual cortex, the same place images we see with our good eyes are processed.
This discovery puts clairvoyance in a new light. Instead of hocus-pocus, clairvoyance may simply be an expanded awareness of a process that we already use.
De Gelder’s study is just one of hundreds focusing on clairvoyance. Daryl Bem, who the New York Times described as one of the most respected social psychologists of his generation, published a ten year study showing that ordinary people are not only telepathic but able to sense the future. Naturally the study was panned by the mainstream press because there’s a long-standing taboo in mainstream reporting on anything related to extrasensory perception.
But, as science is beginning to show, this capacity is not supernatural. It’s biology.
I discovered clairvoyance for myself years ago when I first began practicing meditation. I was sitting eyes closed in a meditation class when I suddenly got a vision of a 12 week old fetus floating in one of the student’s wombs. “Wow!” I said, without thinking, “I see you’ve got a baby in there!” It was true and although shocked, she admitted it. But she’d been keeping it a secret. I’ve since learned to keep my visions to myself unless asked.
After that first inner vision, I was hooked.
I thought, “THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING!”
At the time, I was graduating from the Harvard School of Public Health. I had been a prime candidate for an illustrious public health career. But I threw it all away to get really good at seeing profound visions of people’s lives. And to use this ability to help people see inside themselves. And to be able to predict climate change better than the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.
I wanted to expand the visual capacity of my brain, and I wanted to understand how it was possible that humans could do this. I also wanted to teach others about it.
So I did, and I have.
The hundreds of accurate predictions on my website all came from inner visioning. The insights I get on clients’ lives when I give private readings also come when my eyes are closed.
In the right hands, it’s a worthy profession.

The Celtic Cross is the most commonly used spread in the Tarot world. I begin every reading with it because it gives me an overview of the client — their strengths, their struggles, where they are coming from, where they are headed, their main challenge of the moment, and how it will resolve– all in one spread!
Most people throw just ten cards for this spread, but when I first learned it 35 years ago, I was taught to throw eleven cards. The extra card is number 2 – sometimes called the personality card, but also known as something more outward about that the person, as opposed to the first card, the soul card, which is something inward about the person at the time of the reading. Life is always vacillating between two extremes – the yin and yang, the high tide and low tide. It’s simply the way energy oscillates as it flows forward. And it’s the way the psyche oscillates at we flow forward, in a spirallic flow that is both circular and forward in motion. So I prefer having two central cards (soul and personality) rather than one to more accurately gage the person’s process.
When reading the Celtic Cross, I begin by doing something that I recommend you do when reading every spread, and also even when reading a single card — allow your eyes to settle on the images that jump out at you, rather than trying to read each card in a specific order. In this way, you are allowing your eyes to guide you, rather than some kind of logical or rational rule. Your senses, including your eyes, are your intuitive antennae to the world of energy, so allow them to guide you.
Here’s a guide to the spread:
- The central feeling or state of mind, also called the soul card.
- Another state of mind that contrasts to the central state. You could think of this as the outer you, versus #1, which is a deeper more inner you. You may vacillate between these two extremes.
- Your challenge at this time– something you must confront if you are to move forward in your growth.
- Something that is foundational for you, often a childhood situation that continues to effect you, especially in your present situation.
- The past, or something that is pertinent to your situation that you are growing away from.
- Something that graces you in your situation, often one of your strengths.
- Near future. What to expect next.
- Something else about you in this situation that it is helpful to understand.
- Your environment – could be the work or home environment, often describing whether you are supported or stressed by it.
- Hopes, dreams and/or fears.
- Outcome – how this situation resolves for you. If you don’t like the outcome, you can always throw more cards to see what happens after that, until you see it resolve. I often throw more cards so I can give the person some hope about how it will eventually turn out.
For more on this spread and how to read it best, stay tuned for a continuation of this post in upcoming weeks. I welcome your questions and comments to help me understand what people want to know.
