SPEAK EASY, WRITE LIGHT
As readers of my books, I expect you’ll be familiar with the ‘clairs’ – intuitive senses such as clairvoyance (seeing), clairaudience (hearing), clairsentience (knowing by feeling), etc. We all possess one or more clairs to some degree, which can be developed if we work on them.
Up to now, I had my dominant clair pencilled in as claircognizance (intuitive knowing), because when my writing flowed, it felt as if I was channelling the words. But I recently came across a clair I hadn’t heard of before – a newish kid on the block, going by the name of claireloquence. This clair has piqued my interest for obvious reasons: if writers could choose, it would definitely be a top pick.
Problem was, I couldn’t make sense of the rather sketchy definitions given on the web, so after trawling through my own notes, made over aeons at various workshops and Zoom courses, I’ve unearthed a bit more information. So here goes.
Communication comes in many forms: speech, writing, the visual arts, song, dance, music, mime. The word eloquent could be used in praise of the fine performance of any of these arts. Add in a spiritual element and we have the coining of a new adjective: claireloquent.
Everything in our universe is energy, so it’s no surprise that thoughts and words emit their own energy patterns. Claireloquence recognises the power of words – specifically, the ideal word-energy the recipient’s soul is in need of at that time. This could be, for example, a transmission of healing / a message which could help them make the right choice on a life-changing decision / a clearing and release of a dysfunctional pattern. Neither the practitioner nor the recipient may ever consciously know what has been achieved by their interaction and does not need to. Trust in the process and your mastery will grow.
I see the practice of claireloquence as a transformative act of service. And if a by-product of your act of kindness is, say, the audience staying awake during your presentation, or loving your novel, then it’s a win-win situation for speakers and writers.
I hope I’ve engaged your interest in practising this art, so let’s look at spoken conversation. The first and most important preparation is to breathe light into your heart chakra and make an intention to speak from the heart. Raising your heart light to as high a frequency as possible will be both protective and productive. It’s also important to be aware that practising claireloquence isn’t about counselling or giving advice. It works more along the lines of vocalising a word or phrase that pops into your head, trusting that it comes from a higher source, rather than being generated by your own mind, and very likely has meaning for the person you’re conversing with.
Since I’ve been practising claireloquence, I find my phone conversations with friends often take off in unexpected directions, to our mutual entertainment. Similarly, with face to face encounters, conversation seems more like a game of ping pong, with participants returning the ball instead of one of us dominating. Ordinary daily interactions like shopping, walking the dog, attending appointments, etc, are imbued with more meaning, and I’ve started using the following mantra every morning to remind me how important one’s interactions with others can be.
Today, wherever I go, I create a peaceful, loving and joyful world.
“Words are spells. When we speak, we cast magic. Are the words pure, aligned with one’s heart centre? If they’re not, they’re creating more of the vibrations we wish to protect ourselves from.” Tim Whild
Silence can be eloquent, too, so don’t be afraid of pauses. These might even work in your favour, since it’s possible that the other person could unwittingly be transmitting wisdom to you! The universe moves in mysterious ways 🙂
Here’s a tip. A sure indication that you are developing claireloquence is when, at the close of a conversation, the other person tells you: “It’s been good talking to you.”

And now to writing. As a writer, I’m only too aware of the importance of the editing process. Less is more and overwriting is a mortal sin, we’re told. Elmore Leonard, a prolific writer, boasted that he always left out the part that readers skip, avoided detailed descriptions of characters, and hated adverbs! In theory, his flawlessly pared-down prose certainly conforms to the concept of claireloquence, although he’d probably have baulked at the term. Some writers, in their turn, may baulk at his rules. I have nothing against the occasional adverb, so I’m going down the route of moderation in all things, to be on the safe side.
It might not always be pared-down, but poetry, rich in rhyme, alliteration and onomatopoeia can also carry the claireloquent effect. Whether read aloud or silently, the sound (phonology) of the words as much as their meaning is capable of resonating on an inner level in a transformative way.
With the written word it’s so easy to strike the wrong note (unlike spoken conversation, which has the advantage of tones of voice and/or facial expressions and body language). How many times has an email or text message been misinterpreted by the recipient? As with speech, it’s important to engage your heart as you consciously commit to your role before putting pen to paper or fingertip to keyboard. With luck, this will ensure perfect clarity in both personal and creative prose.
I’ve also got into the habit of engaging the attention of my throat chakra. It’s only polite, as this chakra is the seat of communication and in charge of expressing one’s truth. Shortcuts for this can be: imagining a beautiful sky-blue light enfolding your throat; holding a blue crystal; stretching your neck; singing out loud. Yodel if you like. Et voilà, you’re in business.
For a deeper dive, this YouTube video by Sonia Choquette will give you valuable insight into the heart and throat partnership and how they work together to successfully engage and develop your speaking and writing mastery.
Finally, for the advanced class, we have the star of the show – Light Language. If you haven’t experienced it I suggest consulting YouTube. There you’ll find many different dialects. The language is said to be Cosmic, from various star systems (we’re all formed from stardust, remember). I asked two Light Language channellers if they understood what they were saying and they replied that the languages have no grammar and therefore can’t be learned like an Earth language. So they don’t translate it word for word but they do get a general idea of its purpose. For example, Light Language is said to be capable of healing our original wound, activating dormant DNA, opening the third eye (seat of intuition), awakening a person’s unique gift, and revealing hidden wisdom. Light and sound codes can also be accessed via sacred geometry symbols, binaural beats (two tones with different frequencies), intuitive singing (often referred to as Pleiadian singing), mudras (yoga hand gestures), and physical movement.
After some illuminating weeks of reading round the subject, and having really enjoyed practising what I’m now preaching, here’s my short definition.
Claireloquence is an extrasensory ability enabling the practitioner to speak or write from the heart, in language which resonates energetically, for the benefit of the listener or reader, at soul level. While most day to day claireloquence will manifest in speaking or writing in the language of the listener/reader, Languages of Light – which have no written lexicon or grammar – are said to carry vast streams of enlightened energy in a way human languages cannot, transmitting powerful sound and light codes capable of wondrous feats, such as activating dormant DNA and awakening us to our true identity.
As a postcript, I must give a nod to a preoccupation of present times – the Earth’s departure from the Age of Pisces. This will make sense to anyone who’s ever sung along to, ‘This is the dawning of the Age of Aquarius’ from the musical ‘Hair’. We are now entering the Age of Aquarius and those who channel Light Language believe it contains Ascension codes to help us on our way up. Up is always better than down so why not give it a listen?
To fully enter into the spirit of claireloquence, I’ve had one Light Language activation via Zoom (a channelled message specifically for me), but haven’t started speaking in tongues yet, and don’t really feel the need to. I’m happy to leave that to the experts.
When you start out on your own claireloquent journey, there’ll be trial and error but the benefits to be reaped are huge, both professionally and personally. I wish you a good flight.
‘A reincarnation from Ancient Greece or a mad delusion?’ ~ Charles Gates, archaeologist, art historian, and author of Ancient Cities.
Is there a definitive answer? I tend to let my books write themselves so I’m afraid I can’t say one way or another. Although, as I’ve always been interested in Buddhism, it’s a doctrine I’d never dismiss.
Here’s an excerpt from Ch 25, Temple of Dreams: A Novel of Now and Then. (Seb has been reporting his dreams of Apollos, a young Athenian warrior, to Sybil, one of his tutors at the Asklepios Foundation, a college of natural medicine.)
‘Could there be a future for Pelagia and Apollos?’ said Seb, surprising himself at how much he wanted it to be so.
‘Doubt it. Pelagia’s not wife material,’ she said, laughing. ‘But then, he’s too young to marry, so she’s probably perfect for him at this point in his life.’
‘That’s if he ever existed,’ said Seb, a strange feeling of loss sweeping over him. ‘Isn’t he just a figment of my imagination?’
Sybil’s reply held a hint of impatience.
‘But how can he be, Seb? You’re no historian. You couldn’t make up the sort of things you’ve described. You’ve never heard of most of the activities and customs of Apollos’s era.’ She paused. ‘With the exception of incubation therapy, of course.’
‘I don’t have an explanation,’ he said, feeling confused. ‘I thought that was your job.’
‘Do you believe in reincarnation?’ she said, her voice shaking slightly.
‘The rebirth of the soul? To believe that, I’d have to believe in an immortal soul. I told you, I’m an agnostic.’
‘Well, I do. And I think your dreams possibly took you to a past life.’ She made a note in her notebook. ‘I’ll have a word with someone who knows about regression and get back to you . . .’
Seb brought his cup down on its saucer with some force, bringing her speech to a halt.
‘Thanks for the tea, Sybil.’ He picked up his dream journal and grabbed his coat from the newel post. ‘I’m sorry, but I’ve had enough of being your lab rat. You promised some sort of diagnosis and treatment of a phantom “condition” but you haven’t delivered. This mad theory of reincarnation has just about put the tin lid on it.’
He opened the front door and glared at her startled face.
‘See you around. Good luck finding another mug to experiment on.‘
