is the ability to hear things not audible within normal
hearing ranges. This is an example of extra-sensory perception
(ESP). It includes the audible perceptions of ghosts,
spirits and those who are in the astral realm. The definition
is debatable at length, although the main point being
that clairaudience is essentially the ability of hearing
the paranormal as opposed to seeing it
In its largest sense Clairaudience means simply "clear-hearing."
True clairaudience is a spiritual faculty, the faculty
of the inner spiritual ear, of which the psychical clairaudience
is but a distorted and therefore deceptive reflection;
neither is it hearing with the physical ear, so imperfect
and undeveloped a sensory organ as the latter is. The
power to hear with the inner ear enables you to hear anything
you will, and at whatever distance, whether on Mars, or
on the Sun, or on the Moon, or on Jupiter, or perhaps
even on some distant star, or easily anywhere on Earth.
Clairaudience involves hearing voices or sounds which
are messages being communicated psychically - usually
this ability goes with clairvoyance, the art of receiving
psychic information visually. Clairaudience means literally
clear hearing (clair is French for clear). People often
see visions and hear voices simultaneously.
Some people hear voices quite distinctly. This can be
alarming as in our culture hearing voices is generally
believed to be a bad thing, indicative of mental illness.
However, unless the voices are urging destructive or negative
behaviour, then they may be instances of ESP. Mediums
exercise this skill when they hear messages from spirits.
Some people have clairaudient experiences in the form
of voices of someone they have known, or a voice they
don't recognise, others don't recognise their psychic
ability initially as the messages just sound like them
thinking to themselves. 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.
