Renewing Your Mind: Clairaudience

Wednesday, January 28th, 2015

Have you ever had a clairaudient experience — a time when you received a spiritual message in the form of sounds? As part of my current series about extrasensory perception (ESP) for About.com, I’m covering clairaudience and the other types of ESP.

Clairaudience can involve hearing music, singing, or voices speaking a specific message to you in your mind, without any physical source of the sounds around you.

Some of the most famous clairaudient experiences in history involve Saint Joan of Arc, who reported hearing voices from the spiritual realm giving her what they said was God’s guidance, over a period of several years. I hope you enjoy my new articles about Joan and her relationship with Archangel Michael.

I’ve also posted a new article about how to perceive clairaudient messages.

If you’ve had a clairaudient experience and you’d like to share to inspire others through your story, email it to me at:

Renewing Your Mind: Clairvoyance

Wednesday, January 21st, 2015

Have you ever had a clairvoyant experience — a time when you received a spiritual message in visual form? As part of my current series about extrasensory perception (ESP) for About.com, I’m covering clairvoyance and the other types of ESP. Clairvoyance happens in your mind whenever God gives you such a message during your dreams. When you’re awake, clairvoyance happens through visions that you see with your physical eyes rather than with your “mind’s eye.”

A close friend of mine had a remarkable clairvoyant experience years ago. Hers was of the later variety: a vision while awake. She’d been praying about having another child, which she wasn’t sure was possible for her and her husband. Suddenly she saw a clear image of a baby appear in the air in front of her, and along with the image, she got a strong sense of assurance that she and her husband would indeed have another child. The next year, they celebrated the birth of another daughter — who looked exactly like the image of the baby my friend had seen the year before in the vision!

It’s more common to experience clairvoyance in dreams. I’ve had a few clairvoyant dreams so far in my life, and so have others I know. How about you?

Hope you find this article about how to perceive clairvoyant messages useful.

Renewing Your Mind: A Famous Inventor’s Mind Experiments

Wednesday, January 14th, 2015

“If we all did the things we are capable of doing, we would literally astound ourselves.” – Thomas Edison

Edison, one of the world’s most famous inventors, was fascinated with the human mind and interested in exploring the spiritual dimension. His work exploring physical science like chemistry, electricity, and machinery is well known. But Edison also worked to investigate the spiritual world by testing what the human mind can perceive beyond the boundaries of the physical senses.

Hope you enjoy this new article I’ve written called Beyond Limits: Thomas Edison and Extrasensory Perception (ESP)!

Renewing Your Mind: Disciplines You Enjoy

Tuesday, January 6th, 2015

Now that we’re into the new year of 2016, it’s the traditional time for figuring out how to be more disciplined moving forward in our lives, to accomplish whatever goals we have (from losing weight to saving money). We know that it’s always good for the health of our minds to pray and meditate on a regular basis. But  when we neglect doing so, it’s not usually because we lack the discipline to include prayer and meditation in our schedules — it’s because we lack enough motivation to develop and sustain those habits.

So it’s important to find ways to pray and meditate that we actually enjoy. I learned that lesson some years ago in my marriage. Foolishly, after reading some books that touted the benefits of couples praying together in morning devotional times every day, I thought my husband Russ and I should do that, without fail, every single day. He agreed to try the practice, but it didn’t work well for us, and we both ended up resenting the obligation we felt to it after a while. Still, we kept on way too long, thinking that we “should” do so and if we stopped we’d be failing somehow. After we started to get into arguments while praying together, we finally stopped. What a relief it was after that to simply pray in ways that were more natural for us! What works for one person doesn’t necessarily work for others; there’s no correct formula for building the habit of prayer — or any other habit.

Now I still don’t pray in regularly scheduled, structured ways. But I pray often, throughout each day and night, in response to what I’m thinking about at the time. I maintain a close connection to God, but in a way that I genuinely enjoy. I love to talk and listen to God informally as I simply go through the activities of each day. It’s what works best for me.

So this year, don’t put pressure on yourself to follow any kind of disciplines that you don’t actually enjoy. Instead, work with the unique ways that God has made your mind. Build healthy habits your way. Then, you’re likely to keep those habits and create good, lasting change in your life!
