Metaphysical Senses: What is Clairaudience?

Clairaudience in short means clear hearing, either by mental or physical means. It is likened to having a mental inner ear. It is the ability to receive messages from your Spirit Guides in thought form.

Clairaudience (clear hearing) is one of the four metaphysical senses, the others being clairvoyant (clear seeing), clairsentient (clear sensing), and claircognizant (clear knowing). It is one of your four metaphysical senses in addition to your five physical senses.

A good way to develop clairaudience is to practice automatic writing.

The Voices in My Head

Most of the time during the day my ego tries to run the show with thoughts like I am not good enough, people think I am wierd, no one likes me, and other self defeating thoughts. Those thoughts are not coming from spirit, they are coming from ego.

In order to hear your true voice, you need to learn to quiet your mind. Easier said than done, right? Meditation is one way to be able to get through to that small, still voice that is your true self. When you are able to get through to that voice, you will be amazed by the insightful answers given to your pressing questions.

Repetitious Thoughts

Clairaudience can come to you in the form of repetitious thoughts and tones. These are the type of thoughts that keep popping into your head, even when you were not consciously thinking about them.

For example, my guides keep gently suggesting I take up yoga. A thought about yoga will just pop into my head when I am thinking about something completely different.

What they are trying to get across is that by taking up a regular practice of yoga, it will help me with the other areas in my life that I am asking and thinking about. (I know this, but have not started any yoga yet, so they keep gently reminding me until I actually do it. Pesky guides!)

I Can’t Get that Song Out of My Head!

Do you hear songs that keep playing in your head over and over again? If that happens, take a few minutes to do a web search for the lyrics to the song you have been hearing. You will be amazed how relevant the lyrics can be to a problem you have been thinking about and giving energy to in your life. Answers from spirit may not come in the form you expect.


Telepathic communication is another form of clairaudience, in which you can tune into another persons thoughts. This can be done in the presence of another person or remotely, provided both parties are willing and open. This can happen naturally over time, especially with a spouse that you are very close to.

Automatic Writing

Learning automatic writing is a wonderful way to get the messages you receive down on paper or typed into the computer. It is a fairly easy process to learn.

It can be thoughts that pop up in your head that have nothing to do with what you were currently thinking. You may have been thinking about the events of the day when a stray thought about a certain relative pops into your head. It may mean you should call her or that she is thinking of you as well.

My Thoughts

I am primarily clairaudient in that I will hear answers to my questions in my head. It is like a calm, clear voice that always speaks with complete logic. There is never any slang or inappropriate words used. The messages are clear and concise, never wishy-washy or unsure. Those types of unclear answers almost always come from the ego.

I also get much of my information from songs that are constantly running through my head. It could be just for a short while, or the same song can run through my head for days. Right now, as I type this, the song “Forgiveness” by Bryan Adams is playing loud and clear in my head and has been for the past two days.
