What Is Clairaudience? This is one of the psychic powers, and is also called psychic hearing. This gift is the ability to clearly hear the voice of spirit.
In this article you will learn more about your psychic hearing, and how to develop this ability, by using meditation and specific crystals.
As the vibration of the planet is lifting, genuine psychic abilities are becoming more prevalent.
More people are working in various types of psychic employment as this becomes more acceptable within the general population.
Once you begin to use this ability it may lead to amazing changes in your life. Many of you have this ability but you may not be sure what these communications are. You may even wonder if your mind is playing tricks on you.
One very famous person from the past who was clairaudient was the young French girl Joan of Arc. She heard the angels speaking to her and allowed herself to believe in what she heard.
Sadly she was burned at the stake, when she shared what she heard. Fortunately for us it would not happen to those of us who have psychic gifts today.
Prior to her another person who heard the voice of spirit was the Apostle Paul. He was on the road to Damascus when he heard a voice speak to him, that no one else could hear.
This contact with spirit has been happening for many thousands of years, so there is nothing new in the gift of clairaudience. It has been happening to people for a long time.
Clairaudience is a psychic power that may develop along with one or more of the other psychic gifts. Often we ignore it until one of the other gifts becomes stronger.
At the beginning psychic hearing may start during meditation. You may hear a voice speaking to you, or you may hear other sounds during meditation.
This may be your spirit guide making contact with you, or angelic beings communicating with you.
These sounds have been labeled astral sounds, as they originate from the astral plane.
Clairaudience often starts by hearing a voice and/or a message in your head. But be aware that there is is another psychic gift, known as psychic knowing or claircognizance, that may also surface at the same time.
This gift is similar to psychic hearing, except that you receive messages from spirit or your guides directly into your brain, rather than actually hearing them.
When I first started to hear these sounds, I knew that it came from outside of me, but did not know from where, and it often happened to me during meditation.
You will find that as your psychic hearing develops further, you will hear messages come through, when you are not in meditation.
You may begin making contact with angels, your guides or other beings from the higher realms. Some people when they first hear noises think they are going crazy.
Note: As this may be a symptom of a medical condition, it is wise if you are at all unsure to see your medical professional.
While there are a few specific stones that I can recommend, any of the chakra stones for the soul star chakra, the crown chakra, the third eye chakra and the throat chakra will help you.

As you decide the stones for this use, allow the psychic abilities that you already have to guide you. Most of us are already intuitive to some degree, and intuition is one of the psychic gifts too.
Once you begin to develop your intuition you can allow this to guide you. Be sure that you take care to do spiritual grounding regularly while developing these gifts. In addition make sure that you use crystals that are protective as well.
Labradorite earrings are said to help you to "hear the voice of spirit". So this is one of the first stones that you might use to aid the development of clairaudience, as well as other psychic gifts.
An alternative to wearing earrings is to wear a Labradorite ring and/or pendant, but use your intuition to help you to decide what is right for you.

When you are hearing the sounds, voices speaking etc inside of your head sometimes you may not be aware that this is your psychic abilities coming to life.
It takes time to differentiate between your thoughts, and the thoughts and messages from spirit.
As your spirit guides begin to communicate, often they seem to change when you do not seem to be hearing them.
My guides regularly communicate with me, by turning up the volume. They are very helpful, as the sounds get louder, until I pay attention!
Personally clairaudience is my strongest psychic gift, and was one of my first psychic abilities to develop.
At the beginning I got stray thoughts, and put them down to my intuition.
When I followed the guidance all went well, so I listened more, especially during meditation. It took a while as I still did not quite get it.
Finding your spirit guide and beginning to communicate with them helps the process along, when you listen properly.
Eventually I became aware that this was my strongest psychic communication ability.
As this is a quite frustrating gift to develop, I want to reassure anyone who is going through anything like this, that you are completely normal.
If you develop clairvoyance at the same time, you may see a vision and hear voices accompanying the vision.
But often this is not the way it is.
There is often a blurring of the line between gifts, so at the beginning it may be a little confusing.
If you want to elevate your psychic gifts, find a teacher or a group who teaches the development of spiritual and psychic gifts.
There is likely to be someone else there, who is also having a similar experience to you.
Spiritual churches often run classes, and you will be surprised how quickly you can learn to use your psychic gifts.
At the beginning, when you are present at a spiritual or psychic circle, you may only hear these sounds when you are meditating. This could be because it is your loved ones who have passed over, or other spirits attracted to the circle, who are trying to communicate with you.
Developing your specific type of psychic communication is not always clear cut, and the astral sounds that you hear may vary. One common sound is like the buzzing of bees, and you feel that the sound is coming from the area behind your ears.
Ringing in the ears or tinnitus is another common indicator of clairaudience, but it is also a symptom of electrical sensitivity, so take care if this is your only evidence.
Note: If the ringing stays there continuously it is likely that you should get it checked by your doctor. But if it is only there during spiritual work or meditation, it is probably your clairaudient ability starting.
