Clairsentience and telepathy. Can you hear other people talking about you?
In the right circumstances and under the right conditions, clairsentients and hearing mediums can hear other people’s thoughts.
This ability is called clairsentience when used in communication with the other realm, and telepathy when used with others in this realm.
If you think you can hear other people’s thoughts, and you feel it’s becoming intrusive to your daily life -
The first thing you will want to do is clear your energy, using a protection meditation or a grounding meditation, such as those found on this page. There are also numerous meditations that are available on YouTube and through other sources; just make sure it is a clearing and a protecting meditation that you use.
A clearing meditation helps to remove any current foreign energy and sounds from your immediate sensory space and a protection meditation helps prevent future intrusions. When you do both together over time, you’ll tend to hear random (non-specific communication type) voices less frequently, providing you, the hearer, with better peace of mind over the long-term.
Just because you can hear the sound coming from another’s energy field, doesn’t mean you can control it or what it sounds like, but… you can control how it affects you, if you let it get into your energy field or not, and for how long.
Hearing other people’s thoughts can be very distracting. Therefore, it’s essential to learn how to block this sense, so you can do it when you need to, such as when you need to sleep and turn it off when it’s a bother.
Things that tend to block interfering thoughts are items that project a new, consistent energy field around a person, such as an air purifier, an ion diffuser, or even a sound machine.
Doing clearing meditations once a day in the morning, and again at night, sometimes again mid-day, will also help keep the unnecessary voices out of your energy field.
If you keep hearing them from the same person, the second thing you will want to do is cut your cords from whoever’s thoughts you’re hearing. This is a psychic exercise.
Cutting your cords stops, at least temporarily, whatever connection you have with this person, and therefore, you stop hearing them. You also get a break from feeling their energy, too. It also reduces repeat intrusions from the same person, who may or may not be obsessive themselves. An article on how to cut cords can be found here and a meditation on the topic can be found in the Membership Meditation Room archives.
According to the Hearing Voices Network, anywhere between 7-10% of the population hears voices or experiences other phenomena, such as visions and other types of sensory perception.
So you aren’t alone in having to deal with this and that said, it’s important to note that not all negative voices are other people’s thoughts. In some cases, these thoughts people hear are low vibration obsessive spirits, who may have lingered in and if you think this is the case (it’s possible even if you never leave your home) please check out this article on how to clear earthbounds from around you, an activity which may further quiet any negative messages.
Regardless of the origin of the thoughts, hearing other people’s ideas isn’t always all bad.
Sometimes those with this ability will hear positive things people say about them, along with images that accompany these thoughts, and this is a nice experience.
It is also nice to have this ability active prior to meeting new people, as you may be able to sense any projected thoughts or fears others have about you.
This are what some others call first impressions - and because often they are fears, this is why they aren’t always right.
But now you know, so now you can clear these prior to meeting them, further improving the relationship - by using any grounding or clearing activity, such as the Daily Meditation on this page, or in a few of the articles below.
So to end, yes, sensing an oncoming thought of someone in and around your energy field is possible. It can be distracting if it gets out of hand, but you can clear it to focus, and there are even a few benefits to it - such as hearing the positive things others think about you. And often, if you are open enough, you will be able to feel the emotions that go along with this. That’s called clairsentience and is a sister sense of clairaudience, and an article for another day.
