Cleaning and Clairaudience

Over the last few months, I’ve been helping my wee sister make a positive change in her life (she’s 32 but she’ll always be my wee sister!)
As a single parent to three rambunctious boys (aged 7, 9 and 14), with a fledgling business, and a home to run, daily life is a lot to contend with, and I was concerned that her wellbeing was coming bottom of the list.
One of the things I’ve been helping her with is cleaning her home.
I used to detest cleaning and tidying. And now, I love it.
When my own life was in the throes of chaos - two international moves during a global pandemic, losing everything in a fire, and navigating challenging personal relationships - doing laundry on a Saturday and folding it on a Sunday became the one quiet moment I knew I could depend on.
I’d stick on one of my favourite podcasts, usually Buddha at the Gas Pump, Making Sense or The Jordan Peterson Podcast, and just breathe and fold. It felt good to focus on socks, panties and t-shirts for a while, knowing that if I stayed steady and present with them, I’d accomplish something tangible at the end.
My sister is still in the hating cleaning phase. To her it is overwhelming and tedious, so I try to show her and her sons that it can be fun and rewarding when we do it together. Every Sunday we work hard, eat a packed lunch, and laugh.
A few weeks ago, I arrived at their house and my middle nephew, Matthew, had already made plans to go out with his friend.
I told him he was free to choose what he wanted to do. He could go out with Lucas, or he could stay and help us clean.
A few minutes later, I heard his voice from the other room. He was on the phone to Lucas, telling him that he couldn’t go out to play because his Auntie was there to help him clean and he wanted to stay and do that, but he’d see Lucas later when he was finished.
Tears immediately pricked my eyes, and I felt an overwhelming love when I heard him say that. I had hoped that my presence would be a positive influence in the boys’ lives, and when I heard Matthew choose to take responsibility for the cleanliness of not just his room, but his home, instead of going out to play, I realized that my hope was coming true.
It was a powerful moment, laden with meaning, carried by the voice of a 9-year-old.
Take a moment to reflect:
What have been some of the most powerful sounds in your life?
The tremble in your brother’s voice as he gave his best man’s speech at your wedding.
That one song by your favourite musician or band that always gives you goosebumps.
The sound of the ice cream van announcing its presence on your street, on a baking hot summer’s day, when you were 10 years old.
The thrum of nature outside your window.
Clairaudience is the ability to hear meaningful sounds given to you by spirit communicators to confirm the reality of their presence. And some of the most emotive evidence you can receive from spirit comes in the form of sound.
Mediums who have a special love or talent for music tend to be clairaudient.
And musicians who begin exploring their connection to spirit, tend to find that clairaudience, of all the clairs, comes easiest to them.
Even if you are not particularly musical, you can sharpen your clairaudient ability, enabling spirit to work with you in this way.
This works whether you are a medium giving messages to others, or whether you’d like to hear a message from your own loved ones in spirit.
The key to developing clairaudience is simple:
Find a quiet few minutes when you will be undisturbed. Grab the best headphones or earphones you can find, and sit or lie down.
Put on your favourite song.
Listen to the song more carefully, more deliberately, than usual.
Can you pick out an instrument that you have never noticed before and follow it?
Do you hear hidden meaning in the lyrics that you’ve never noticed before?
Where in your body do you notice energy, emotion or movement as you listen?
Practice being present with your favourite music and your clairaudience will improve.
Then in prayer, ask the spirit world to give you sounds to let you know they’re around, and keep your ears open for what happens next.
Now, I’d love to hear from you.
Do you have strong clairaudient abilities? Have you ever heard a message from the spirit world? Is there a connection between music and mediumship for you?
I’d love to know what you experience if you decide to try the technique I suggested.
