I came home on Friday night, late-ish, like a I normally do. My flatmate was asleep already, so I turned on the lights, walked to my room, and put down my laptop bag. It was very quiet in the house, and I tried to make as little noise as possible, as not to wake my flatmate. Just when I started taking my camera bag off my shoulder I heard a friendly girl's voice say "Hello".
I immediately thought it was my flatmate that was awake, and walk to the door wanting to greet her. I said 'hi, are you awa..." I stopped in mid sentence.
There was no one there.
I went cold immediately and realized what just happened. Phoned my neighbor and went over there, just to gain perspective. This was my first clairaudient experience, although I dream a lot of dreams that tend to become true. I have dreamt dreams of accidents close friends and families were in, and they all came true. I have had intuitive dreams, especially one recurring one where my best friend gets hit by a car that skips a traffic light. I phoned her all of the times it happened, and asked her to please just stay at the traffic light those mornings, for just a while when they go green. On both occasions a car skipped the crossing.
This is the first time that I have actually heard someone speaking to me, and I know I'm not going mad, as that was my first thought!
How do I develop clairaudience, and how do I protect myself throughout development?
