Well think again, it may just mean that you are sensitive to spirit and are tuning in to spiritual messages using your clairaudience.
Clairaudience simply means clear hearing and is a spiritual ability to hear beings without bodies including spirit guides, angels and other out of body entities. You can also use it to communicate with friends over long distances. It allows for communication without the limits imposed by time and space. Your information on your clairaudience is reached through your fifth chakra, which is an energy center that exists in the cleft of your throat.
I use my clairaudience all the time to communicate with my healing guide. The healing guide provides me with information about my clients and the state of their energy field and makes suggestions for what we can do to assist them in their healing.
I was lucky in my spiritual development to have teachers who guided me to use my spiritual abilities in a positive way. Although, I have met people along my journey who have been diagnosed with and treated for a mental illness only to find out years later that they were opening their spiritual abilities. I have also met students who are very afraid of hearing voices and deliberately resist this useful spiritual gift.
Early in the development of this ability I did hear voices of people that didn’t concern me. One time, I listened to a gay man, who I didn’t know, and all his thoughts about his life for weeks. I eventually realized I could simply turn my clairaudience to another frequency so I did not receive his messages.
It is an important step in your spiritual development to own this ability for yourself and to learn to control it so you do not pick up information that does not concern you. You do not have to listen to any and all messages that come to you, especially if they are disturbing. Yet it is a shame not to use this fantastic and fun communication ability.
