Psychic Skills: Clairaudience

Clairaudience is one of the most natural psychic skills in the world and incredibly useful. Clairaudience literally relates to what we can hear using extra-sensory ability. Some people can do it straight away and are aware of an inner voice of wisdom and knowledge that ‘speaks’ to them. People often think Clairaudience is like an external different voice but in my experience it feels more like your own voice but gives information you could not possibly know. One of the reasons it is not only a simple but tricky gift is that initially it can be difficult to differentiate between imagination and clairaudience. If you listen closely you will be able to tell what is clairaudience and what is imagination as clairaudience has a slightly clearer feel to it.

For most of us, we can recognise that a lot of chatter runs through our minds on a daily basis, whether it’s us suddenly thinking, ‘Ooh, I’ll wear the blue boots with that jacket!’ or a driving instructor saying, ‘Remember – Mirror, Signal, Manoeuvre!’ just before we’re about to make a turn when at the wheel of a car. For the most part, when someone who has psychic skills has the gift of clairaudience, what they also hear is experienced inside their heads in the same way. I was born clairaudient and couldn’t understand why other people didn’t automatically know things in the way that I did. My sister at died at birth was always around giving me advice when I needed it but it was not an external voice. It came through my own thoughts but the information was stuff I could not know.


Clairaudience connected to other psychic skills

A medium might get a strong visual image of someone who has crossed over and hear them passing on messages and information.  Clairaudience doesn’t just come in the form of words – people with strong psychic skills might hear snippets of songs or evocative sounds, such as a busy road, that provide hints or clues about what they are picking up.  Many psychics also work with spirit guides whom they can see and hear when they enter into a certain kind of meditative state. 

But in all such instances, the person experiencing this information also usually experiences it ‘inside’ their head, or during a very carefully controlled altered state, such as the kind of deep meditation a Shamanic Practitioner might go into when taking a journey on behalf of a client. 

Many forms of meditation also encourage us to clear away the clutter of our minds to tune into the wisdom of our higher selves – that part of us that we can understand as being our own inner spiritual guide that is like a much smarter version of us. As we are connected to all that is through the quantum soup, all the information we need is available to us if we have the ability to listen.  Life today is often very frantic and busy and we don’t get or give ourselves time to think, let alone stand still and be silent. Make it a regular practice to walk in nature, turn off your mobile phone and go quiet to tune into that inner voice of wisdom.


Trust that you are developing at the pace that is perfect for you!

Some people are naturally clairaudient and can distinguish their inner spiritual voice to everyday thought immediately Having said that, the real trick to developing clairaudience is, as with everything else, learning to distinguish between a wise inner source and our everyday mind and being very patient in the process! ‘Straining’ to hear something clairaudiently in the same way that we might try and hear a faint sound in our everyday lives just doesn’t work. We need to be receptive, grateful and trust that our abilities are developing at the perfect pace for us. So, if you are working to develop your mediumistic skills through a spiritualist church, and although you can get clear images of people who have crossed over, you can’t quite hear what they are saying, then just thank them for what they are able to pass on to you and don’t worry about it! Equally, if you are going through Shamanic training and you keep missing bits of what you hear on journeys, know that you are getting everything that you are ready to receive. Know that everything you need will come in good time.

Loads of love,

    Hello, I have for many years I’ve audibly heard voices of what I believe are people who have just passed away. Its always been just within maybe 3-7 days after passing. This has not been experiences necessarily of people I was close to or relatives even. Somewhat as Whoopi Goldberg’s character in the movie “Ghost” hearing Patrick Swayze and he would not leave her alone. I first had this experience many years ago as a teenager and for a time frame of a week, it seemed, I kept hearing a voice whisper their actual name in my ear. Even as I would sleep it would wake me up, when I was awake it would whisper its name. So it became so annoying until I told my mother one day that week and said the name of whatever the spirit was. So my mother said that was one of my grandfather’s friends. I had never known this person or met them. I vaguely remember the older people talking of their friends when chatting about the “good ole days”. About a week later, I overheard my grandmother speaking with my aunt and she mentioned that my grandfather’s old friend had passed away the week before. Now you can imagine my feeling at that time. I was shocked. I have had other experiences where I have also known when a person was going to die before it happened. Then at a later time I would receive notice it occurred. Recently, I had another experience of hearing a person who actually spoke my name and it sounded as if they were screaming from far away or maybe I could only hear it lowly. Today, I had another experience of a lady whom I was not close to, but knew her from my childhood in growing up in the same church. Any feedback on these types of experiences? I am just curious if this is consider clairaudience or something else? More importantly these are non-relatives or not people I was close to.

    I live in a haunted house and hear men speaking. They are not nice. It has been war in this area and apparently a prison. I do not know what to do because I wake up at night and get nasty comments. I siffer and I do not want to be clairaudient! Can I turn this off! Someone did a muscle testing (kinesiology) and said no. That I will have to live with this. I just feel for crying and I’m depressed.

    I hate it seriously, it hurts my feelings and it makes me ” swear” and in compatible with the people that I’m hearing within that group. I don’t know why.. the focus is on that ” group” of people? Maybe.. it’s the House or.. a certain.. direction that.. makes the sound… ” non” ” sound proof”. It started with.. ” crying”, and a person in need of help, and in pain. All I heard was Jaque Swearingen’s voice.

    I just don’t understand why.. I have to listen to a flock of people that aren’t even ” nice” people. All I hear is making fun of me, and saying ” rude” and vulgar comments to me. Calling me a hairy monkey, and racisit comments and telling me to Meditation, and forcing me to go to college to do hair.

    I have Sore eyes from lack of sleep from people.. bothering me day/ night and constantly harassing me about me, and my boyfriend Cone. They keep harassing me about Jason, and saying that.. he’s open and that he looks like a turtle, and has a butter face. It’s his ex friends.. Josylin and that click. All I hear is people.. saying I look black, and it’s my hair.

    Calling me fat, and other rude comments. Pretending to be Jason, and saying he’s hear. I highly doubt it! I have someone ghosting right now, it’s with Mark Mauvius stalking me. I’m also Clairvoyant. I’m clairvoyant and clairaudient.

    Lying about him, and telling him he’s staying in California with his friend, and having a threesome with him and his ex best friend saying.. to Act my age. When I’m matured, and has never met me before in real life.

    I have this psychic girl Blue that’s in that house saying she wants to blow job my boyfriend, and screw him right in front of my ears. Then saying it’s some Blue eye girl, and having a threesome with Jason from Sum-41.

    You should hear the crap they’re saying out of it’s mouth. Calling me a ” turtle” and telling me to commit suicide, and for Jason to kill him self to. Telling me that they’re going to Pony tail.. Micheline Pitt from Pin up Girls clothing, and saying.. they’re planning to ” hang” me, and pony tail me because I look similar to Jessica Alba in the face.

    Then there’s a dead body rotting in that house of Jaque Swearingen, and that’s from them Pony tailing her, and domestic abuse, first degree murder and accessories to Murder.

    They never called ” 911″, there’s a dead body rotting in the auditorium.

    There’s another guy, and Jason’s ex friends.. that are hitting on me, and want a relationship with me. Trying to ruin a relationship with Jason.

    I am busy now..
