I can see in the dark with my eyes closed. What does this mean?? Clairvoyance?

Over the past few months in bed I’ve been been able to see objects in my room with my eyes shut tight. I thought I was going insane, I can move my hands about and see them! It’s unbelievable. I started to see color forming last night so I really need to know what this is. Can anyone help?

  1. You can see the objects because you already know what is in your room or that you are moving your hands in front of you. Have someone hold random objects in front of your face while your eyes are closed. I bet you won’t be able to tell what they are.

    • Ok so what if you can see those object then what. Going to a doctor or even optometrist, they won’t know what it is because the only work on the physical not spiritual.

  2. You might be a Jedi.
    Seriously though, I would consult a doctor. The brain is what is mostly responsible for vision (occipital lobe- back of the head), and there could be some trauma. I doubt this though, because if you can see things that are actually there, then your eyes are involved as well. A good way to test if it is your occipital lobe is to re-arrange the room. Your brain inputs data it expects (i.e. the way your room is already arranged). If you rearrange your room and are still able to accurately see things with your eyes closed, then chances are good that your occipital lobe is NOT to blame. Good luck, but definitely go to a doctor.

  3. Clairvoyance is something totally different from what you’re saying. Clairvoyance is about seeing people’s future.
    I really don’t know what it is. Maybe you need to hold on and see how things develop and when you have more details, ask the question again?

  4. Hi from France ♫
    As clairvoyance doesn’t exist, it’s called : IMAGINATION !!.. That is cool !.. I’m a painter / illustrator and believe me, Imagination is very useful to me ..
    Have a great day,

  5. Clairvoyance means “many” things not seeing people’s future duh! Ha ha, yes you are probably tuning into your third eye chakra, seek a spiritual healer, you probably have the “gift” and never really gave it much attention. Through meditation you should be able to now connect with those who have crossed over. Many wanna be Mediums try to make a connection of the “third eye” to the Occipital Lobe int the back of the head. Your third eye, “yes it’s real” can see many things, research occipital lobe and clairvoyance / google it…

  6. Hi I can do the same thing that’s why I did a search and came up with this page with your question because I found it very strange that I can get up in the middle of the night with my eyes closed and it’s like I can see all the way to the bathroom and that I can move my hands in front of my face I can see each finger I can see objects in the pitch black and I don’t know why either I wish I did. I do think it has something to do with knowing where things are in the room already I don’t believe it has anything to do with Mystic Voodoo or anything like that but I would be curious it with the science is behind it if you ever discover why please let me know

  7. This used to happen to me all the time as a child. There are now schools in Mexico, England etc. Teaching kids what they call “extra ocular vision” – to see with eyes shut. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rC7xZmLcOeY&t=90s.
    I have read theories that call it skin vision, etc. – mostly ideas that the body senses energy in many different ways and can process it visually the same as the eyes do when taking in various wavelengths of light. Of course no one knows for sure yet. There are threads on forums on reddit that discuss this: https://www.reddit.com/r/Glitch_in_the_Matrix/comments/3v2om9/i_can_see_with_my_eyes_closed/
    You just process energy visually somehow! Very cool! I would love to regain that ability!

  8. I can do the same thing. I have for the longest time thought I was cheating somehow and had my eyes open slightly or something. I have since started wearing a blindfold at night, and it still happens. It’s kinda like trying to watch a show on an old style tv through all the white static snow filtering heavily over the image. I can easily make out shapes of things, and see movement, though I see no color or resolution.

  9. This has happened to me before, but tonight’s experience was the most unusual and vivid I have ever had. I was trying to relax in bed with my eye mask on, which completely blacks out my vision. You can’t see through it at all, and my room was completely dark. Anyway, I couldn’t get comfortable, so I sat up a bit and began adjusting my pillows and blankets. I could see the pillows and I could see my hands moving around in front of me, which was at first unremarkable, until I realized I was still wearing my eye mask and I shouldn’t be able to see anything at all. Now usually I can only see my hands and my body in these states, sort of like dimly lit shadows outlined by an aura. However, in this case, I could also see my pillows AND the objects in my room. The pillows were particularly interesting to me, because the looked just like a pillow would look in a room as dark as mine, with just enough light to see their surface and shape. Even while moving them around, I could see them clearly. I tested this out by taking my mask on an off and comparing the two “types” of vision. No difference except with my eyes open I can see the actual light and shadow in my room, instead of the dimly lit shapes with my eyes closed. Very weird. The last thing that made this experience unusual was that my eyes were actually OPEN when I noticed the phenomena, but were completely blacked out by the eye mask. It was as if I wasn’t wearing the mask at all! I could also see just as well with my eyes shut. Strange, huh?
