Are You Coming to Your Senses? Your Soul’s Sense of Sound
Welcome to the second part of a five-part series on how your soul perceives your physical senses. In our previous article, The Sense of Sight, we discussed insight — the ability to see what is beyond the physical that is around you. Insight is a well-recognized phenomenon and is commonly referred to as the Sixth Sense, the Third Eye, or psychic ability, which you can learn more about from intuition expert Sonia Choquette.
Have you ever pondered that there might be a similar soul experience for sound? What might we call such an experience? Your inner sound waves of insight? Sound that is in alignment? For the purpose of this article we will refer to it as in-sound.
Sound as a Spiritual Experience
On the human plane of existence, sound is an important part of your spiritual experience. For example, music has never been more popular than it is today. There are numerous healing practitioners who use sound therapy of some form or another with their clients. And sound-based activities such as drumming circles are gaining in popularity outside of indigenous communities as a means for humans to connect with themselves and Source.
Thinking about the sense of sound in other ways…how many humans claim to hear voices at some time or another? Almost anyone who has spent much time in nature would say they’ve imagined they heard a voice in the wind at some point. Has it ever happened that you thought you heard the crying out of a woman or child, yet you can’t figure out where the sound has come from?
Have you ever heard some sort of a tone or had a ringing in your ears when there is nothing around you that could be making that sound? For instance, there isn’t a bell ringing or a television show on in your home or the next-door neighbor’s house. There’s no phone ringing, or even an electrical current hooked up to some device that would justify you hearing something. There is nothing physical that could be held accountable for making the noise, and yet you hear a sound.
The Sound of Your Soul
These sounds or voices that we are speaking of are the voices from within. This is your soul connecting to the oneness that is around you. These are the beings, so to speak, that are in the dimensions that are all around you. This is the energy connection to your flame.
Every soul emits a tone, and all high-vibrational essence beings know you by your sound.
What is the tonality of another soul, and how do you hear that sound? You hear it through the in-sound of your own soul! You don’t hear it standing next to someone else. You can’t hear someone else’s sound by holding your ear really close to their physical embodiment and saying to them “What is it I am listening for? I’ve been told there is a tonality to you and your existence, but I just can’t hear it!”
There’s too much density to the human body in the physical. Light, which is inside of you, has a high frequency pitch to it. This is what your soul aligns itself with. You can’t hear another soul’s tone with your physical ears — you can only hear it in your soul.
The Presence of Energy
You have to remember that science can’t prove this. Science can only prove the physical. Yet science knows it exists. How? Because the energy shows itself in scientific experiments on scales and meters, even though there is no physical proof of it! Theoretically, science predicts that sound and tonality will go even higher on their scales, but they don’t have an explanation for it. Science can’t accept it as it being something spiritual because they have no understanding of that aspect.
Energy is present even when you can’t see it. Have you ever stood under a group of overhead electrical wires and heard a popping or humming sound? Those wires are carrying currents of energy that most human beings use every day, yet you can’t see the energy…but you can certainly hear it!
What we would tell you is that there is energy that is more refined than what science can even comprehend. Science has recognized tones and sound that it can’t explain, so can we call it a midway or perhaps a middle ground of acceptance?
Experience the Energy of Sound
Meet renowned sound healer and modern-day Mystic Tom Kenyon in the film Song of the New Earth. He integrates modern-day scientific advances in sound research with mystical and ancient traditions including alchemy, Shamanism, and more. Sound can heal not only us but our planet, Mother Earth.
Hearing the Voices Within
Humans have been taught in most cases to run away from their in-sound, from the voices within. Why is that? Because religions have dictated that this is an evil occurrence, that it’s your alter ego or even the Devil speaking to you. In reality, it’s just the opposite…
What you hear through your physical ear is the altered ego state, and what you hear coming from within you is the God Voice.
You must remember, though, that everything has been designed through social consciousness to dis-empower you. Why? Those in power know that if you were to become empowered, you would not continue to serve them. So they have continued to come up with threats. The ultimate threat being that of Hell and damnation if you don’t abide by the guidelines they have laid out for you in the physical.
Many people are able to gain access to their in-sound during meditation. Spontaneous chanting during meditation or spiritual ceremonies is really the soul declaring itself, aligning itself with the tonalities from within. You are accessing sounds from interdimensional worlds and bringing them forth into the physical. Before you can produce sounds vocally, you have to hear them internally. That is the inner sound we are speaking about. And that is in alignment with your soul.
To access these higher forms of consciousness and further empower yourself, try Gaiam TV’s Fractal Meditation System. It can help you stimulate your mind into enhanced awareness.
The Difference Between Healing and Emotion
Feelings are the sensory system based upon the physical. Feelings are mostly shallow and fleeting, easily changed, and influenced by what is going on around you. In contrast, the emotional sensory system of the soul is a deeply resonating experience. It is the experience that is carried with you from lifetime to lifetime, from existence to existence. These are the emotions that move, change, shift, and expand you.
Can you see or feel the difference? Will you now HEAR things differently in your life? We hope this perspective on in-sound has opened you up to hearing your soul speaking to you.

Philip K. Dick's Communication with Valis and the Evolution of Humanity
Valis, Philip K. Dick, and the Evolution of Humanity
When Philip K. Dick went to the dentist in February 1974, the acclaimed science fiction author did not know that his view of reality was about to change. He was in a lot of pain with what turned out to be an impacted wisdom tooth, and was sedated with sodium pentothal while the dentist removed the tooth. The pain afterwards was fairly severe, so the dentist ordered a painkiller, Darvon, for delivery to his patient’s home later that day.
When the courier arrived, Dick answered the door and was suddenly taken aback by a pendant she was wearing. It was a fish ornament, which she explained Christians adopted as a symbol of their religion. He saw a “red and gold plasmic entity” coming from the pendant and, as he reported it, immediately experienced “crystal clear” vision and “sudden exposure to a vast amount of knowledge.”
This was not his first experience with visions and hearing voices. The voice he heard was the same voice he had heard years before while in college. He also began channeling an alien presence he called “Vast Active Living Intelligence System,” or “Valis” for short. The intense visions lasted for two months, leading him to refer to this period of his life as “2-3-74,” for February and March 1974. During the next eight years, he wrote thousands of pages about his visions and voices. His novels were more autobiographical than they were science fiction.
Dick died suddenly in 1982, shortly before the release of the movie “Blade Runner” based on Dick’s book, “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?” Many of his other books are now movies, as well. He is now known as the “most influential writer of science fiction in the past half century.”
But, was it all science fiction? He received multiple communications from Valis, had dreams and visions about the future, and spent the rest of his life trying to understand why he gained such supreme knowledge. He claimed to have “total recall of the future.”
Philip K. Dick: The Pre-Valis Years
Philip Kindred Dick was born in December 1928 during the cold Chicago winter. He had a twin sister, Jane, who lived for only about eight weeks. She died mysteriously, some saying she had an allergy to her mother’s breast milk. Whatever happened, Dick went through his life always missing his sister and blaming his mother for her death. His father left the family when he was only 5 years old. Shortly after that, he and his mother moved to Berkeley, California, where he lived most of his life.
First published when he was just a teenager, his first short story marked the beginning of a prolific writing career. Although he successfully published a number of his stories, he was not such a success financially. He was always running out of money and seemed to live from advance to advance.
Dick’s life was not emotionally easy and he seemed troubled throughout his entire life: married five times with three children, thought to use drugs and experiment with LSD, and frequent visions of his own death. Despite drug use allegations, he was able to continue writing. By the time of his death, he had published more than 120 short stories and 44 novels.
As early as 1954, Dick wrote about precognition in his novel, “The World Jones Made.” Based on his own experiences, the main character in that book was a “precog” who could see one year into the future. His books often referenced precognition, and Dick believed he himself had this ability.
He also heard voices, or at least a voice. As a young man taking the physics portion of a college entrance exam, Dick found that he did not understand eight of the 10 questions. Suddenly, he heard the voice explain to him, in a completely understandable way, what he needed to know. As a result, he received a perfect score on the test.
He heard the same voice again years later, when it explained to him what was happening in a television documentary that he had had difficulty understanding. In 1974, the same voice returned when he had his life-changing vision in response to the fish-pendant worn by the pharmacy delivery girl and he began his regular communications with Valis.
Philip K. Dick: The Valis Years
Although Dick reported only sporadic communications with the voice until 1974, after that date, the communications became fairly frequent and routine. Valis gave him advice on improving his health, his appearance and his financial situation. Dick credited the voice with saving the life of his young son by describing the medical condition the boy suffered from and urging Dick to get the child immediately to a doctor. He convinced his wife of the need to take their seemingly healthy boy to the doctor where they discovered the child had the exact condition the voice described to Dick. Prompt surgery saved the boy’s life.
Dick believed the voice he heard was from God, or at least from some higher power. He wrote continuously about what he experienced. He ended up writing thousands of pages and hundreds of thousands of words in his attempt to make sense of it.
He intended his 1981 book “Valis” to be a trilogy. It was more of a biographical presentation of Dick’s visions and voices than it was a book that fit in the science fiction genre. As one reviewer put it, “He’s not looking for aliens; he’s looking for the meaning of life.” Due to his sudden death in 1982, at the age of 54, Dick never completed the trilogy.
The Death of Philip K. Dick
In February 1975, Dick wrote a letter to a friend telling her about a dream he had just had where he saw “a stark single horrifying scene, inert but not still; a man lay dead, on his face, in a living room between the coffee table and the couch.” He followed the letter with another one in May 1975 in which he said he was “scared.” He added, “What scares me most Claudia, is that I can often recall the future.”
Almost exactly seven years after the first letter, Philip K. Dick’s dead body was found face down in his living room, wedged between the coffee table and the couch. Without realizing it, he had accurately predicted the circumstances surrounding his own death. Some reports say he died of a stroke. Others claim it was congestive heart failure. Others regale in the mystery of why he died so young.
Philip K. Dick left behind, in addition to his short stories and novels, his influence on other sci-fi writers and pop culture, as well as many mind-bending films. Unfortunately, he did not live to see his work on the big screen. He died before the release of his first movie, “Blade Runner;” however he saw about 20 minutes of the finished product and seemed pleased that the filmmaker preserved Dick’s vision. Other movies based on his books that were made after his death include: “Minority Report,” “Total Recall,” “A Scanner Darkly” and several others.
He also left behind more than 8,000 pages about his experiences with Valis since his 1974 vision. The pages had narrow margins and were mostly single spaced with numerous handwritten journal entries. Dick referred to this body of work as his Exegesis. The papers were edited and published in 2011 as “The Exegesis of Philip K. Dick.”
