Clairaudience is one of the main psychic abilities. Personally, it’s one of my favorites (I also LOVE clairsentience).
This is such a HUGE topic that today’s post is the first in a four-part series. (Links to the rest of the series are at the bottom of the post.)
High-five’s all around! Here we go…
You may find when you start on your path of psychic development that some of your gifts unfold easily and others don’t.
The good news is that clairaudience – that is – your psychic hearing is one of THE easiest intuitive gifts to develop… once you know how.
What is Clairaudience?
Let’s talk a little bit about what clairaudience is.
Clairaudience comes from the french words clair (clear), and audience (the action of hearing). Put them together and you’ve got clear hearing.
I know… kinda boring. In more fun terms:
Clairaudience is a psychic ability that means you can receive intuitive information from your Higher Self, those in heaven, and members of your spiritual “team” (Spirit Guides, angels) via hearing.
You might hear sounds, voices, words, or music.
How does clairaudience sound?
Clairaudience is usually heard internally (in your head). But don’t worry, it’s not creepy at all.
Sometimes, clairaudient messages can be heard with your “regular hearing”. But remember – those in the Spirit world no longer have a physical body – therefore, don’t need a physical “voice”.
Tip: If you want to be a professional intuitive, clairaudience can be super helpful to develop. On the other hand, if psychic hearing isn’t your strongest intuitive gift, no worries! You don’t have to have every “clair” wide open in order to be an amazing intuitive!
5 Ways You Can Receive Clairaudient Messages
1. You hear YOUR own voice in your head
Clairaudience is soft and subtle. It often sounds like when you are thinking to yourself.
For example, if I’m doing a mediumship reading and my client’s Uncle Joe is communicating with me via my clairaudience, I don’t hear the voice Uncle Joe had while he was alive. I hear him in my voice, in my head.
Think of it as a telepathic way of communicating.
Once you’ve developed this intuitive gift, you’ll be able to differentiate between your own voice and the voice of Spirit, too.
You may hear sounds, words, or music in your head. They may have literal or symbolic meanings.
If I’m giving a reading and Spirit wants me to know they recently had a birthday, I might hear the Happy Birthday song in my head.
3. Physical Sounds from the Ether
On rare occasions, you may hear words, music, or sounds externally with your regular hearing – yet there is no source for the sound.
One day, my massage therapist and I began hearing the most beautiful music, yet there was no one else in the building and no radios around! We could both hear this ethereal music with our normal hearing.
Imagine how cool that would be if that happened all the time. We’d save a fortune on iTunes!
4. The voice of Spirit
Most mediums hear Spirit telepathically in their own voice. But sometimes, the voice of Spirit will sound like it did while they were living.
The first time this happened to me I could distinctly hear my friend’s sister in Spirit saying the name John. It was amazing! I was able to describe her voice and the way she pronounced her words.
These types of of clairaudient experiences are positive and not scary.
5. Clairaudient warnings
If a person is in distress and their spirit team needs to get their attention pronto, they MAY hear a clairaudient warning out loud.
This phenomena is NOT meant to be scary, but can be startling (this is another reason why Spirit prefers to communicate with gentle, telepathic messages).
And believe me, if your spiritual team protects you by yelling “STOP”, you’ll be super thankful they did!
Where Do Clairaudient Messages Come From?
Once you are far enough along in your psychic development, you’ll begin to get a sense of who is sending you a message and why.
- It might be from your Spirit Guides
- It could be from someone you love who’s passed on
- It could be from your Higher Self
If you start hearing Willie Nelson’s On the Road Again playing in your head, it may be a nudge that you should take that cross-country trip you’ve been dreaming about.
How to Know if You’re Clairaudient
Anyone can develop psychic hearing. For some, it will be their dominant psychic ability. For others, clairvoyance, clairsentience, or claircognizance will be easier to develop and use.
Clairaudience may be one of your main psychic gifts if you:
- LOVE music or are musically inclined, play an instrument, etc.
- Enjoy writing your own music. This process makes you feel connected to your soul.
- Learn best through the auditory channel. (You’d prefer to listening to George Clooney tell his life story rather than read about his life story.)
- Are sensitive to noise. Too much noise makes you feel drained or irritable.
- Hear ringing in your ears or a high pitched sounds, yet there is no medical reason. (This might be your Spirit Guides trying to get your attention.)
- Spend a lot of time “in your head” thinking.
If you don’t have all the traits, that’s OK. Psychic hearing could still be one of your dominant gifts. I only have the last three qualities and clairaudience is still one of my strongest abilities.
How to Develop Your Clairaudience
Now the fun part! Developing clairaudience just requires a couple of key ingredients: practice and the desire to learn.
The easiest way to start developing clairaudience is to practice sensitizing your hearing. This works because as you train yourself to hear more in the physical world, it will be easier for you to pick up sounds from the Spirit world.
Let’s try it right now. If it is safe to do so, close your eyes and take a few deep breaths.
- Set the intention that you want to increase your psychic hearing.
- Relax your body and let your hearing be your dominant sense.
- Gently tune into sounds that you don’t normally focus on: the refrigerator humming, your own breathing, etc.
Breathe and listen. If you do this exercise for just 10 minutes every day, you’ll be well on your way to developing clairaudience.
