Building Focus for Clairaudience The gift of Psychic Hearing
Mediumship requires a highly developed ability to concentrate and focus.
Therefore one of the most important aspects in the development of spirit communication or mediumship is to cultivate of your power of concentration and your ability to focus.
There are a number of ways that you can practice improving your concentration, the simplest of which is to create a mental point of focus, in your mind’s eye (clairvoyance) (or ear (clairaudience), feeling (clairsentinence) or thought (claircognizance) ) upon which you fix all of your attention. Then place all your focus on that point. If you find yourself drifting away from your focal point, bring it back to the image, sound, feeling or thought you have chosen. Keep doing this for 90 seconds to a couple of minutes.
Here is an exercise to help you develop your clairaudient (psychic hearing) focus. It is very easy to do and can be practiced in the quiet of your spirit / meditation space.
And… you don’t need to meditate prior to doing this particular practice exercises. It is actually preferable that you don’t.
This is because this exercise is meant only to help you increase your ability to focus on one thing very quickly, rather than raise your vibration, which is what meditation does. The more you do this focus exercise the easier it will get.
Focus Exercises: Building Focus for Clairaudience:
Choose a piece of classical music. Classical is a good choice because it is all instrumental, and usually multi-layered so it will be easier for this exercise.
My favorite piece for this practice is Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7, Second Movement, Allegretto which is about eight minutes long.
A good length for the piece of music used is around three or four minutes. A search on YouTube for 'shorter classical music pieces' yields a large number of classical pieces that work very well for this exercise.
Listen to your piece of music once all the way through.
Bring all of your awareness to the piece of music.
Listen to the different sound of the instruments.
Listen to the whole piece this way.
Then, when it has finished, listen to the piece of music again only this time zero in on one of the instruments, to the exclusion of all of the others.
Hold your focus on only this instrument until the end of the piece. If you lose track of your instrument take a deep, centering breath then isolate it again and hold your focus on it.
Practice this exercise again by listening and focusing on a different instrument the next time through. This will get easier with time and practice.
Another way to do this exercise is to sit quietly and listen to the sounds in your immediate environment. Bring your awareness to all of the different sounds, then pick out one of those sounds and hold your focus on only that sound.
Take a breath to bring you back to centre then focus on that one single sound.
If you really listen you can hear something, even though you may not think, at first, that you can, even if it is the sound of your own breathing or your heart beating.
You could zero in on the chirp of a bird, the electrical buzz of an appliance in your home, raindrops falling, thunder, a faraway voice speaking or traffic in the distance.
Hold your focus on that one sound and only that sound, really getting into the experience, for about three minutes.
Do this exercise two to three times a week when you are beginning your mediumship development.
