What Is Psychic Hearing

Psychic hearing or clairaudience is the ability to hear voices, singing, or music from other realms. It is frequently confused with auditory hallucination, a mental state resulting from drug abuse, psychiatric instability such as bipolar disorder, psychotic depression, and schizophrenia. In addition to medical conditions like brain tumors, epilepsy, and strokes.

In past decades, psychic hearers were diagnosed as delusional and regularly institutionalized. But times have changed. The medical community is beginning to recognize a larger segment of the population hear voices than previously assumed and is researching whether it is a common occurrence.

Psychic Hearers

Whereas Christine Duminiak, a Certified Grief Recovery Specialist and facilitator of spiritual bereavement recovery, believes the voices are those of deceased relatives.

In most cases, scores of people encounter hearing voices from out of the blue, while driving, before falling asleep, or meditating. Sometimes it may only occur once in a lifetime.

Generally speaking, psychic hearers are representative of a cross-section of society. They encompass diverse demographic, religious, political, and educational backgrounds. These individuals are typically engaging, function at peak capacity, and are employed in a variety of professions.


The Voices

Psychic hearers declare hearing angelic, highly educated, childlike, folksy to mean-spirited voices in temperament. By and large, the voices warn of imminent danger, offer guidance, make calls to action, and lecture about the meaning of life. While some of them utter poetry and cite biblical scripture.

What’s more, a majority of hearers welcome the oracles as companions and eagerly anticipate the communications. Still others consider the aural experiences as a spiritual awakening or advancement to their next level of spiritual development and unfoldment. On the other hand, some hearers are troubled by the ongoing encounters and seek medical relief.


Fiction Writers

As a matter of fact, some writers even express a need to hear their characters chat to acquire enhanced insight on a new writing project.

Likewise, innumerable musicians affirm hearing the melody of musical scores spinning around in their minds for days on end.

Well Known Voice Hearers

Attitudes Are Changing

It is a worldwide advocacy organization for people who hear voices based in the United Kingdom. Their website is The group provides a forum, resources, wholistic perspectives, and assistance to enable psychic hearers to manage their lives.
