I think about this all the time. What convinced me was being in a fun altered state of conciousness where I was having trouble with expressing ideas articulately in the verbal sense even within my own train of thought. My thinking happens way faster than words are capable of when I’m stoned and it can sound very stupid despite often finding answers to deep complex problems while I’m there.
Images and concepts would move WAY faster than my verbal acuity though I’d hear my thought train say things very well that was beyond what I was capable of saying in that state. Far more articulate.
That’s when I realized I was indeed hearing another.
All that said, if you find the answer, does it matter? I get there are times when you’d need to know. There are times when you find two different ideas that contradict. There are also times when one thinks they’re hearing someone else and it’s nearly ALL them. Lots and lots …and lots of people larping on this forum.
Though if you’re looking for an answer and you get it, or a result and you get it, that’s all that matters. A lot of my wisdom comes from other sources such as books, seminars, teachers, people, and conversations.
I hear a lot about “developing astral senses” and what not. I’m still learning how to do full visual evocations. Most of my amazing experiences with spirits have come from synchronicity or through having said “astral senses” highly elevated by an enthogen. Something with a conciousness to it. THC, LSD, or DMT all work great. The latter being the strongest experience when it comes to hearing them.
There’s a way to practice attuning your conciousness to where you can hear them. It seems that around 70% of the forum hasn’t been to rapture state. Those who have take it as a given requirement and there’s nothing stickied talking about many of the fundamentals. With all the new people surging the forum I think this would be wise to discuss more.
I’d ask them to speak to you in a way you’ll understand. Many will communicate through dreams or signs, conversations or other ways of sharing information are a way I get things. I asked Sallos for something and was lead to a new resource. A few weeks later I have a contingency based system for multiple relationship management that’s astoundingly powerful.
Raziel will help you actually make contact with anyone if that’s a doubt. Learning to recognize their energy is a big one. Get an omen with a distinct feeling and feel Belial or see an associated number and you’ll know. It’s easy to miss results if you aren’t looking for them. Become more superstitious and look for things when you make an association. Just don’t get too lost in it.
I’m looking forward to hearing more from others about how to actually develop this further. Most people say “Lol just talk to x spirit” but that begs the question…
I did call on Lucifer and I’m lead to believe he showed me all of what I just said. I’m feeling an energetic nod from him as I type this. Consider that relayed advice.
