The power or faculty of hearing something not present to the ear but regarded as having objective reality.
Clairaudience, in effect means 'clear hearing' and is a term that is used for psychic hearing abilities.
It is a form of channelling.
A clairaudient person will receive psychic information in the form of words or ideas that are perceived and interpreted through the normal 'hearing centres' within the brain.
Sometimes a clairaudient person will receive this information by hearing voices internally (in the mind), or receive ideas and hear sounds.
Other clairaudients may receive information by actually hearing a person speak, as if they were in the room next to them.
Many people have a degree of clairaudience but do not recognize it like so many intuitive/spiritual abilities, it has always been there.
Some people have clairaudient experiences in the form of voices of someone they have known, or a voice they don't recognize, others don't recognize their psychic ability initially as the messages just sound like them thinking to themselves.
Many may actually hear spirits talking or singing in your head but there is no auditory sounds.
Many of us receive messages in this manner from spirit guides, or other entities who have crossed over.
Sometimes the message is preceded by a floral fragrance.
Many of us become aware of spirit messages given in this manner - during times of crisis and they hear a warning in their mind.
When information comes through, there may be a pressure on top of the head (opening of the crown chakra), body sensation such as chills, tingles, hair standing on end, or other physical sensations.
Learning to listen to different entities is as much fun as learning to listen to different people.
You can learn to distinguish their messages by their frequency signatures.
We all have psychic experiences everyday.
Being intuitive/clairaudient is not having some "Woo Hoo" abilities that one can only be born with.
For many of us, we do not have the words to describe this, what we are experiencing, thus allowing us to identify what we are experiencing "as psychic experiences".
There are many myths that surround our abilities to utilize our own psychic information.
Many people feel and acknowledge that they have intuitive abilities.
What they don't understand, is that the only difference between being psychic and using your intuition is the level of trust that you have that your intuition is correct.
Trust is a major component when working with your psychic abilities.
One must trust the information that is coming through, the feelings, the inner communication, the pictures, and the just knowing.
By not trusting, you are in essence invalidating the information that is coming through to you from your higher self, your guides, and the universe.
Some people find is easy to tune their frequencies in to the other side to 'hear'.
Other people develop the skill with practice.
It is believed that area of the brain just above the ears is processing the information for clairaudient experiences.
This is where sounds perceived through the ears are interpreted as well as ESP information.
Opening your clairaudience gift has to do with DNA activation of your encoded cellular memories, activations of your chakras, raising your frequency, balancing your energy bodies, your self esteem and the ability to trust in what you 'hear' and 'see', your emotional state (clearing issues that block / or influence the information you get), expanding your knowledge base in all areas of 3D.
You can't read someone on a subject - or understand symbols on a specific subject if you have no knowledge of that subject.
Once you have opened your clairaudience gift, it is like any other exercise - it gets easier and easier.
Some people meditate daily not for these messages but just to keep their sheath bodies in balance.
Humanity is returning to an age of enlightenment in which we are all activating and see the truth of our reality.
At that time psychic abilities/intuition become our total experience - the spiralling evolution of consciousness thought.
As you can see, working with your intuition, your psychic abilities is a very experiential thing.
It is not something that you can just read from a book.
It is something that must be experienced first hand, validated, and then practiced and refined.
Remember , we all have psychic experiences daily.
