Aside from being primarily Empathic and sub-primarily Clairsentient, my second strongest gift is Clairaudience. It is very safe to say that during each reading I do, I hear information in the form of thoughts, phrases/sentences, and audible words in my head every time. There is not one reading yet where I have failed to hear things during that reading.
In her bookExtraordinary Psychic: Proven Techniques to Master Your Natural Psychic Abilities , Author Debra Lynne Katz states that "Clairaudience is a mild form of channeling" (69). In the glossary of her book, she also defines Channeling as: "A psychic ability in which a person receives and communicates information coming directly from a source outside themselves" (292).
With that said, can it be deduced that one who is Clairaudient has the ability to communicate with spirits, therefore making that individual a Medium? You know what I'm trying to ask.
I have successfully connected with a departed spirit a few times before, and relayed accurate (so claimed the querent) information from that spirit to my querent, but I would not categorize myself as a Medium because it rarely happens. Although, oftentimes during a reading I will Clairaudiently hear a name or names, and when I relay this/these name/s to my querent, sometimes they are unclear of what they represent for them. Could it be that these names are spirits coming through to communicate with them? If I do have Mediumistic/Channeler capabilities, it could be that it only occurs when I consciously, intently connect to an already departed spirit. I'll have to do some experimenting with that. Lol If you guys have any departed loved ones you'd like to hear from, shoot me a message so I can see if I can do this. :D
