The Auditory DLG™
Those who experience the Auditory Download from God™ are experiencing what is known as clairaudience. While everyone has some level of clairaudience, it is your degree of trust that will determine how well you utilize the gift and what you create out of it.
Clair = clear
Audient = listening or hearing
For starters, in order to hear clearly, you need to clearly, hear.
I have been a clairaudient since childhood and trained myself to pay attention to what, when and where I hear, what I hear. And believe me, it was training, just like any training for anything else in Life. I devoted time to listening to myself before I devoted time listening to others. The devoted time wasn't by means of meditation, it was merely acknowledging to myself what I heard. I'm a person who enjoys hearing my own thoughts, even as a child listening to my thoughts fascinated me more than what someone else had to say. My teachers can attest to that. (winky wink) The question marks, the answers bouncing back and just the shear pleasure in rumination of thought kept my cogwheels churning and burning. I most certainly did have a mind of my own. I found it remarkable to hear something that wasn't really audible, but yet it was, because I heard it. How could that be?
My fascination with thought heightened when I realized there was another voice involved besides my own. For a while I wondered if it was my spirit answering back; as if my external self (human body) and my internal self (spirit being) were having a conversation. But that couldn't be simply because my external self wasn't verbalizing. In order for my external self and internal self to converse, I would need to be talking outloud. Further, for my human body to be involved in this dialogue, my voice would have to speak. It was all internal but not my spirit being.
Keep in mind my statement from the main page on this site, we are " . . . still a 'human body' housing a 'spirit being', which when coupled creates the totality of a 'human being'. The me on the inside and the me on the outside are clearly in two different forms. But this other voice, the second voice inside of me, was not me. I know when I'm talking to myself and when I'm not and that secondary voice had too much sage advice, too much wisdom and clarity of purpose to be me. As time would teach me, that internal voice that connected with my spirit, 'was' Spirit. The Voice with a larger case "S" Spirit was connecting with my smaller case "s" spirit. It was God! The Parent was connecting with His child. By nature, I am a thinker and I suppose due to the fact that I devoted time to understand myself was the reason why I was given the gift of Auditory DLGs™.
There's no doubt, I hear, listen and enjoy the dialogue. As time would have it and as I paid more attention to the internal conversation between my spirit and Spirit, the more it bloomed and morphed into a perfectly audible conversation. You may not be able to hear it outloud but I sure can.
While I enjoy comfortable silience by myself or with someone else, poised meditation is something that has never worked for me. I'm more of a moving meditation type of gal. In other words, I can move and think at the same time; such as exercising, doing laundry, washing dishes or making jewelry. If my feet come off the floor or my eyes shut, I'm going to sleep and that's pretty much how I roll. Meaningless conversation that is more noise than thought provoking do nothing for a gal like me. I'm very clear about keep worrier wort drama or gossip out of my head through other indivduals. I would rather listen to my own thoughts. I can turn off external sound like a switch on the wall. While a crying baby may drive passengers on an airplane or a congregation of churchgoers out of their mind, I'm so far into my mind that I don't hear the crying baby.
The level of clairaudience that you experience will be purely based on your degree of trust and desire to hear what you want to tune in to.
11 And he said, "Go forth, and stand upon the mount before the Lord. And, behold, the Lord passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and brake in pieces the rocks before the Lord; but the Lord was not in the wind; and after the wind an earthquake; but the Lord was not in the earthquake.
12 And after the earthquake a fire; but the Lord was not in the fire; and after the fire a still small voice.
13 And it was so, when Elijah heard it, he wrapped his face in his mantle, went out, and stood in the entering of the cave. And, behold, there came a voice unto him that said, "Elijah, why are you here?"
