Real Psychic Experiences

Is This Clairaudience?


Ever since I was about ten, I would hear faint whispers as I was falling asleep. It sounded like a conversation, but then it would just go away. As a teenager, it picked up more; For a while, I would drift halfway between going to sleep and would hear even more conversations. Also, if I were to think of my parents or friends, I could feel like I heard what they were thinking.

Recently, there was a psychic fair that I attended. While I was listening to a lecture that a psychic was giving, I could hear about ten, maybe fifteen, people whispering again. This is weird because I'm not halfway asleep - I am wide awake lol. I also went to get a reading from a psychic and she told me that I did have this ability, yet didn't give me any advice on how to build it up or manage it.

I tried to tell my dad about this but then he goes on to say that he and many scientists agree that it's something to do with a brain pattern and has nothing paranormal about it. I then asked, "Well, if there's nothing paranormal about it, how come some people have it and are hired for detective-like work?" Of course my dad will debunk almost anything related to parapsychology.

My mother, on the other hand, thinks I am clairaudient, especially since she is psychic herself, but not to her family members. That kind of creates an obstacle (I wish she could tell me).

Is this clairaudience? If so, how can I build this ability more? I think it's very interesting. I hope to get some information on this, and I'm really hoping it's clairaudience.

This is humorous because I sound like your mother and my boyfriend sounds like your father.


It sounds to me like you have clairaudience.

Well I think it's clairaudiance and I have a chatroom that I made to help and learn about psychic abilities that I hope people will go and become regular users. I post about different psychic abilities and my experience with them
Its also a chatroom for other psychics to met other people like us and just talk and be ourselves

I believe it is, for I have many the same things on occasions, but your abilities seem far stronger then my own. Its nothing to be concerned about. 😊

I am in my teens, and for a while now I've been getting these dreams. Not long afterwards the things in my dreams come true. Can I see the future? 😕

Try making a barrier shielding you from the words of the spirits if they do not go away. First ask all of them to go away... Sometimes does work.

I have this 'quality' too (I won't call mine a 'gift'!). I have heard spirit voices since I was a child, and it has never gone away. But I find them a nuisance as they seem just to like disturbing me or get my attention when I don't want to. They just say inane or taunting things to get my attention, and I don't wish to hear these voices, which I believe are disembodied earth bound human souls, they speak in our local dialect, whereas I use more English than my own mother tongue (the dialect). I have prayed hard to God for these clairaudient sensitivities to shut up, but my prayers have not been fulfilled although fulfilled for many other things I pray for. Any advice anyone?

This exact same thing used to happen to me as a child. Sometimes I was in that "half asleep" state, other times I was wide awake in bed and I could sense the voices starting to come in. Almost like a radio tuning in to the right channel.

Because I was a child it scared the heck out of me and I always told the voices to stop. The voices were many and the whispering was too fast for me to discern what was being said. By the age of 18 the episodes stopped completely.

Now that I am older (and hopefully more mature, lol) I would love to have this gift back again. I meditate almost daily and am doing some chakra work on myself... The radio isn't tuning in yet.

Is it possible it never will come back or is it just a matter of time? I would like to work with it... For the highest good of course. Thanks!

several schools of thought on this... The scientific one for those of you who have doubt, is that during your beginning stage of REM sleep as you shift between the conscious and unconscious you will start to dream while awake.
This isn't the only other possibility of course, call it what you will but information is constantly shifted through the world peoples thoughts, ideas things THEY think of as they fall asleep, have no where to go and pass on to others, during deep relaxation the mind ceases proper function and pulls information from this stream of thought.
This is also another theory, we have yet to really tap into the true potential of the human mind, and how we are all linked together through our thoughts. (by the way all this happens to me as well) several things happen to me though, I hear things before I go to bed, that can be reasoned with, Predicting what someone is wearing as I talk to them on the phone, and then telling them not to trip a minute later is another.
I think everyone has a gift, several throw it aside out of fear, or just disbelief as I said... The human mind is amazing, and so are the seals it creates on our potential when we have doubt.

This has happened a lot to me, but not only would I hear spirits, but I would hear living people talking about daily life things from far away and sometime even the thoughts of others. Just spots here and there. I was told that I was unconsciously doing a form of telepathy and clairaudience which is a really tough mixture. I read a book that talked about it and helped me out a lot in understanding this (also understanding clairvoyance since I also see things and people that aren't supposed to be there.) There's some basic exercises that can actually help you tap into this at will (in spite of a lot of people thinking that it just 'comes out of nowhere'). Spirits are all around us at ALL times. Meditation helps you be able to clear you or mind and relax enough to hear these messages (since in most cases this happens just out of the blue when you are just doing either nothing, 'vegging' out or in a very deep state of relaxation aka 'close to going to sleep').

Exactly the same thing is happening to me!
&&i also think it is thoughts that we hear... And I can sometimes tell the difference between the voices. For example I can understand when its my sister "talking", my best friend or my parents... And yesterday while I was in the same room with my sister I tried to concentrate in order to listen to her thoughts... And yeahh some were her thoughts...
I think she has freaked ouut hahah;)
Buutt its really PERFECT the feeling that you can do something that extraordinaryy^^
The bad thing is that its not easy at all to concentrate whilee there is a lot of noise around...:/butt I keep trying...just
Give it a try and see if you can listen to others thoughts...

I hear whispering too. At first I just thought I left the TV on, and when I go to turn it off, it was already off. So now I'm pretty sure I'm clairaudiant. I don't know much about it but like with all abilitirs meditateing should help.

Oh and yes, they are starting to become clearer. One of them really stands out and I think it's my grandmother because she keeps whispering, "Hi, how are you and your mom?" but she says "mom" like "mum" like some Canadians do. My grandmother was from Toronto.

your abilities can get stronger if you practice and meditate. Also, you may be hearing gibberish because your abilities are still being developed and you cannot hear the actual words being formed yet, so maybe, with practice, you will be able to work out what you are hearing, and begin to help people using your ability ❤

To SiderealSagittarius
I have a thought on Rev's comment posted on your story 'If you are hearing whispers or gibberish that isn't of value and has no reason, what would be the point? In looking at category of experiences visions/trances/altered states could it be 'precognitive clairaudience' at some point in time whispers, gibberish may become clearer, and a meaning would surface. It's just a thought here.

Edit: JUST found out that being able to read minds is telepathic, not clairaudience (and yes, some of these experiences spooked two of my good friends). Can these abilities get stronger as I get older (I'm 22)?

I doubt it's my mind in overdrive. I mentioned that when I was at the psychic fair, I must've heard about ten or more spirits talking in the room where a psychic was giving a lecture on past lives. It was a little bit interrupting, yet interesting.

it can be clairaudience but it might just be your mind in overdrive. Usually for clairaudients we will hear something of value- something that makes sense. This gift is there for a reason. A lot of spirits want to speak with the living for various reasons. If you are hearing whispers or gibberish that isn't of value and has no reason, what would be the point? This psychic? Did she tell you you had the gift after you told her/him about hearing whispers/voices? If so she/he wasn't much of a psychic. If you are wearing red I can tell you one of your favorite colors is red. Get it?

I advise meditation and spiritual dedication to the positive energies of the universe to increase your gift. You might want to control it when it becomes a bother. Just think of something else or say outloud "i can't help you now". But of course this involves helping the spirit voices later.

Love and light...always

I agree with Doublemint, meditation improves your focus and should strengthen your abilities. ^^

Btw I hear the conversation-like voices too, and am sometimes jolted out of my sleepy state if one or more starts yelling. Is that how it is with you? I can't hear exactly what they're saying... Lol I thought it was just my imagination.

Well clairaudience means, "clear hearing", the ability to hear messages from the spirit world, including the dead, angels, guides, or God. Channeling and mediumship would fall under clairaudience if the messages were "heard" by an individual, as would hearing sounds relevant to a reading. Practicing mediation would help you out tremendously.
