Additional Thoughts on Clairaudience (CA) and growing your abilities

We have all seen and heard multiple stories and depictions about what CA is supposed to look like, or feel like and of course sound like. The truth of the matter is, it is different for different people. The other truth is that it can change and grow. You may hear it in your ear as an audible sound, and if so that is great. You may be one like me who hears it in their head 99% of the time, and that is great too. If you are a very social person and an audiophile, like I am, you may want this to be your strongest ability. This may be your perfect version of what a psychic ability would be. Having someone telling you the answers into your ear directly seems more tangible and believable. It may give you more faith in what you are receiving as being true. I don’t experience it this specific way, so unfortunately I can’t tell you whether this is true or not, but try not to forget that your ego, emotions, and interpretation can have an impact on any messages you receive. 

I am strongest in Claircognizance (CC) which has its own set of pitfalls which I will discuss in that future Focus piece. I have at times received messages when I was not deliberately tuned in to my guides and in hindsight was feeling pretty emotional, that felt very much like the ones I receive when I am tuned in and focused. I was sure it was true and then it wasn’t. It can be frustrating. Your feelings about a situation can influence how you interpret the message. This is why it is important to have focus. Meditate daily, even for 5 minutes. Get used to reaching that balanced, quiet part of your mind. It can be very hard at first but keep doing it and eventually you will find that quiet (or at least quieter) place in your mind. If you believe you have received a message at a random time when you weren’t focused on doing so, and feel unsure, you can check in with your guides to verify. Find a place to focus, calm, and center yourself and ask for verification.

As you go on and work with these abilities more, it will become easier to find that focus. That doesn’t mean you will reach perfection, there is always a chance you will misinterpret or not be able to get the connection you want, so patience is key. Have patience with yourself, and give yourself permission to make mistakes because you will learn from those experiences. Celebrate your successes, this will sow more success. Eventually you will find the balance that works for you, don’t lose faith in that. 

One of my favorite things about CA are those times when I am having a rough day, I am facing a difficult situation, and I am ready to give up, and I suddenly hear “Don’t Back Down” by Tom Petty play in my head or something similar. The supportive messages from our guides are so fulfilling and reassuring. Moments like that let us know that they always want us to reach our full potential and they are supporting us. Being able to help others with these abilities is an amazing feeling and one that keeps me on track with learning and growing but I also believe everyone should try it for themselves. Even if it is not your purpose or desire to do readings, just being connected for your own benefit is wonderful. It can remind us that the universe is supporting us to find and achieve our passion and purpose, whatever that may be.

Focus on Listening: Clairaudience

Focus on Listening

This is part one in a four part content series that will cover ways to play so you can focus and strengthen your Clairs. 

In case you aren’t aware of the four Clairs or want a bit more information about them, here is a quick rundown. 

Clairsentience(CS), or clear feeling, is when you feel sensations or emotions from people or situations that gives you information or insight. 

Claircognizance(CC), or clear knowing, is when information pops in your head like a thought that provides information or insight, but there is no way you could have known that information.

Clairvoyance(CV), or clear seeing, is when you see pictures, symbols, images, or even scenes in your head that tell you about a situation or person that gives you information or insight. 

Clairaudience(CA), or clear hearing, is when you hear a word, song or sound that gives you information or insight.

This first episode is going to talk about Clairaudience, which we will abbreviate to CA. The first thing you should know about CA is that it is typically much more subtle than most people expect. The main way I know when it is my CA and not Claircognizance is I can hear inflection in the words coming through. Also, if you have various Clairs that are fairly strong they will sometimes mix. So if you have strong CA and Claircognizant abilities, messages may come through part CA and part Claircognizant. Exploration of your abilities will reveal how exactly this comes through for you. Don’t worry if the way it works for you is different than the way it works for others. The important thing is to get to know YOUR abilities. The better you know them, the easier they will be to access. Make that your focus.

For the first exercise/game I recommend, get yourself some decent headphones, if you can find a dark room that is even better. Listen to one of your favorite songs, one you have listened to hundreds (or if you are like me, millions) of times. Lots of instruments is a plus but not necessary. Close your eyes, and just enjoy the song, but listen closely. Try to notice at least one thing, an instrument, a vocal part, or the way the instruments play off of each other, that you never noticed before. Even just noticing how the song builds, how instruments join or drop out at certain parts, weird pronunciations of words by the singer. Anything along those lines that you may have never noticed before, or perhaps you forgot because of repeat replays. Just make sure you are giving the song all of your attention. When you are finished, enjoy the new little bonus you found in your favorite song!

If you are burnt out on all the music you love or your music player is out of battery power, here is another exercise you can try. Sit in your room, on your front porch, or somewhere in nature where you will not be in danger or interrupted. Close your eyes, and just listen. You can set a timer if you like, but you don’t have to. Try to notice all the sounds going on, people or animals making noise, cars, machinery, wind rustling leaves etc. If you can find one sound that is ongoing try focusing in on that sound. If you do not know what is making that sound try to figure it out. If you can tell what the sound is, try to discern if there is a rhythm to it, try to figure out where the thing producing the sound is located in context to you. If it is a conversation, no matter how muffled, try focusing in to see if you can discern some of the words. The other benefit to these exercises is, most likely you will clear out your own worrying thoughts if you are focusing, even if it is just temporary.

Now, if you want to test your CA ability you can try this exercise. First think of a question you would like insight on. Intend that you would like to receive the answer through CA. You can do this by saying it in your head, something like “I would like the answer to this question clairaudiently please”. Close your eyes, take a few deep breaths, relax, and try to clear your mind as best you can. Ask the question; you can do it outloud or in your head, either one should work. Sometimes I even like to imagine what I would sound like if I were saying it outloud. After you ask, just wait a minute or two. See if any sounds or songs come through. It may be one word, a sound, a whole phrase, or a song you like. Whatever you hear write it down. Open your eyes, and look at the response. Does it make sense in relation to what you asked? It may not be clear at first but try to figure it out, no matter how weird it seems. If it doesn’t, don’t worry, you can try again later. 

I am going to turn the comments on, for this post. If you decide to try one of these exercises, I would love to hear about your results! Have fun playing while you develop and strengthen your abilities, and stay tuned for the next episode.
