The Spiritual Meaning: Hearing a Loud Clap
By Amanda Linette Meder
Have you heard the sound of a deafening crack? Sounded like thunder, expect there wasn't any? If so, you may not be alone.
When I was 26, I went for a walk in the woods.
Stopping to notice a passionflower that had just bloomed, I bent down to inspect it further and admire its beauty.
While I paused on my walk, a loud, deafening crack pierced the air.
It sounded like the crack of thunder had just flashed over my head, expect there was no lightening. It was a beautiful, crystal clear day without a cloud in the sky.
My ears now ringing from the aftermath, I looked around to see if other hikers heard it, too.
Jogging, chatting and continuing along the trail, no one was acting like anything had happened.
I was apparently the only one who'd heard it.
And I was mystified.
Fast forward to today, I've learned that when I hear a noise originating from no physical or human source in sight, it's probably something spiritual.
Have you heard a loud pop in meditation? A sudden bang while you're all alone?
if you can find no physical world origin for the sound, what you have heard is spiritual and called a rapport.
A rapport occurs when a spirit traveling in a high-frequency dimension zips through our lower frequency dimension and an energetic wave called a shock wave is produced. A shock wave occurs when any energetic wave is moving faster than the local speed of sound in its surrounding fluid.
When a spirit is traveling really fast to meet you on the physical level, a mini spirit sonic boom happens.
And what you've heard is the sound of a Spirit traveling to you.
In cases when you are meditating, alone in contemplation (as I was when I heard it), or otherwise going inward, the spirit is likely your Spirit Guide.
