What is the difference between physical hearing and spiritual hearing? When you hear with your spiritual ears, you do not receive an audible sound wave through the ear canal, but rather a dialog in the consciousness of the mind. Many have natural ability to hear their guides and guardians speak, but they fail to recognize the difference between their own mental dialog and that of a spiritual teacher, or they lack confidence to believe what they are receiving is super conscious input.Some of you have heard your names called in an audible voice by your guides and teachers, yet I tell you this is not a sound wave, but rather an intense thought focus on our part to get your attention.Stillness and meditation are most helpful in developing your spiritual hearing--mind chatter and thought patterns are brought under control by slowing the brain waves down, and in doing so, allows the spiritual voice to be heard.
