I’m writing today’s post from under my favorite meditation tree.
Because as intuitive as I am, my intellectual thoughts can still tend to get the better of me. And scoring high on the spiritual sensitivity scale means I have a lot to consider when managing my energy and staying clear.
When I’m under my tree, listening to gentle music and/or the sounds of nature, I feel like my energy body is taking a glorious shower that comes through my ears and pours all the way down into my spine.
As jumbled thoughts and worries are drawn down into the earth I make space within for only helpful, compassionate and peaceful thoughts to come (and if I’m in a darker place, I ask for the guidance that will lead me through it).
Grounding into the earth while connecting to the universe through silent meditation has a way of clearing us out, pronto.
But even the simple act of getting quiet and/or listening to healing sounds on a walk, drive or bike ride can clear out the debris of worry and scrambled thinking so that you can be more open to Spirit communication through your inner senses.
I remember once, I was in a turbulent relationship with a man and my grandmother had recently passed away. I was grieving and had not heard from her on the other side yet, but wished for her advice.
While trying to figure out whether to stay or go, I went for a bike ride with the intention that Spirit come forth guide me.
In the middle of my journey, I received clear instruction to stop along the trail and rest. It was there that I heard my grandmother loud and clear…
“This man has shown you who he really is... believe him and do what you know you must do. It will not get better if you give him more chances. In fact, it will only get more difficult with time and you both will suffer.”
Deep down, I knew she was right. And it was something she would have told me had we been sitting at her kitchen table together.
She never let me stay down or small for long, and I’m eternally grateful for her tough love and guidance in times when I was heading down a disempowered path.
I needed badly in that moment to be mindful of how I was to choose a partner in life… so, despite my fears of causing him pain and finding myself alone again, I took the advice and initiated our separation.
It was a tough break-up, but because I was in alignment with my spiritual truth with the assistance from my guides and loved ones on the other side, my life force flourished instead of faded.
That little auditory push was all I needed I order to do what I knew was highest and best for all concerned.
So, now that you know you’re not “crazy” for hearing things… what kinds of things have you heard from within lately?
A few common things Spirit will step in to tell us are:
“If you don’t stop doing or thinking___________ you’ll have to suffer the consequences.” (This one is often in the name of good health and long term self-nurturing.)
“Call or write a letter to____________and tell them___________, a.s.a.p.” (Either you need to move energy by saying something or they need to hear it to their benefit)
“Go to (place) and do (task) – today. Seize the moment and all will fall into place” (I use this one for finding great things on sale all the time, lol!)
Or, if nothing has been there for you, you can try another one of my favorite wisdom practices....
Go into meditation and simply ask, “What do I need to hear today for the highest and best benefit of myself and all I come into contact with today?”
If you’re in touch with your wisdom guides, ascended masters or angels, they should come in loud and clear through a phrase in your head, a song on the radio later in the day or even something another physical person says that just resonates.
The matrix of spiritual communication is complex indeed…
Our job is not to fully understand it.
It is simply to ask for it and stay open and receptive to the signs as they appear, both inwardly and outwardly.
When your answers come through clairaudience, you may doubt what you hear because it can sound so similar to your regular old thoughts.
The difference is, they usually feel as if they emerge from the back of your mind rather than the front. You know how tension headaches usually happen in the forehead and temples? That’s what too much thinking will do!
Clairaudient messages, on the other hand, feel like a dose of peaceful clarity that swells up within your skull and relaxes your whole being, or in case of a warning, it may sound a bit like a stern teacher telling your conscious mind what’s up. Listen or suffer the consequences in this case… just sayin’.
Some challenges you may face as you develop clairvoyance can include sensitivity to loud sounds and auditory overstimulation (hearing everything all at once and/or feeling physically drained after being in crowds or rooms with too much echo).
And finally, when you’ve ventured into deeper Spiritual Communication territory, too many messages from Spirit can drive you batty, unless you give readings on a regular basis to channel that energy out of your system. Once again, I speak from experience on this one!
The good news is, even though you may feel bombarded by spirit sounds, you can set boundaries and simply demand that Spirit give you a break when this happens.
Energy clearing practices can also help if stating your case is not enough… but if you are on this planet to work as a medium in some way, shape or form – this may be something you can only delay momentarily as you find an outlet to exercise this aspect of your extrasensory wiring.
If this “sounds” like you (no pun intended…), take time for silence daily so that you can clear your Clairaudient palette.
-Use music to manage your energy (I listen to meditation music to balance out my noisy city life most of the time and throw in some dance and rock when I need energy or motivation). Limit or avoid music and sound that stresses you out, drags you down or brings anxiety. In other words, honor your sensitivity!
-Try chanting healing mantras or phrases under your breath when your auditory worries overwhelm you.
-And always, always, always remember to stay open and receptive to the helpful universe that wants you to thrive with its messages of wisdom.
I’ve noticed that once we get a message the first time, if we don’t take action on it nothing new comes. So take action on the positive advice you get and see what happens*!
When what we sense, think, say and do are all connected, we’re living in alignment and fully participating with our inner senses.
Life becomes an amazing dance between the inner world and outer world, one mirroring and informing the other, as we learn to walk hand in hand with our wisdom and guide each other with the wellspring of insight we all have access to within.
We just have to look, listen, feel and know that our spirits are ever present, and we are connected to this world by the Source of all that is, no matter what our intellectual doubts or instinctual fears may be.
“All things change according to the light shed upon them” is a powerful phrase my wisdom guides once told me in a time of distress.
And man, were they right. I’ve been watching that light change everything in my life ever since.
You are never alone and your helpers and loved ones in Spirit are always near to help. When we listen to the still, small voice within – magic is possible.
