Am I Clairaudient?
I have known for over 20 years that the dead can communicate with me. But, I never understood how they could until I heard Chip Coffey describe it. He said that a spirit spoke to him in his head.
It was like an awakening to hear this and validated my gift. I have had encounters with ancestors. I usually know who they are. They don't speak to me out loud. They communicate with my thoughts. I have also had encounters with spirits looking to visit their family members. I feel their confusion and can picture them. They don't appear in a form. It's like they appear out of the corner of my eye. If I turn toward them, they begin to communicate. I acknowledge them and/ or answer their questions, then they leave.
I can tell when they are present and when they have left. My most recent experience was with an angry spirit who was trying to wake me from sleep. I was facing the other way, but could feel her anger and I remember her dark hair. I woke up startled and afraid, so, she left.
I have been working up the courage to call upon her and find out why she chose me. I want to help her, but feel I need to learn how to protect myself and learn how to develop my abilities. My experiences connect to my childhood.
My mother has told me that I would come to her very afraid, describing people in my room. We didn't know what it was at the time and assumed it was typical childhood fears. She told me to tell them to go away. I believe now that is why my abilities remained dormant until my early 20's. I am now 42 and feel that my abilities are presenting themselves stronger every day because I am receptive now.
