Hearing the Gods
I think this is what trips up a lot of people; when a spirit worker or other spiritual person says, “Odin told me such and so”, there’s an internal assumption that the communication was an external voice stating things plainly so that the listener immediately understood. As most spirit workers will attest, this is usually not the case. So if that’s true, then how do we interpret the voice of Gods?

I’ve been meaning to write about this topic for awhile, but Del just said almost everything I would have, so instead I direct you there.
I think it’s especially important to note that when many spirit-workers talk about communicating with a deity/spirit, they do not necessarily mean having a back-and-forth lengthy internal conversation. I think this erroneous assumption has influenced a lot of wannabe mystics, causing them to relate long, elaborate discussions with deities as if they’re hanging out with their friends, even though they haven’t done the necessary groundwork to be able to have that sort of signal clarity yet – which means a good portion if not all is probably in their heads. Not a good start if your goal is to actually have authentic divine contact. So if you’re not having such verbal interactions, worry not – there are many more likely ways to communicate with gods and spirits, as Del explains at length. These may not seem as direct, but we are dealing with GODS not people, and our attempts at communication have to take into account the vast differences and distances between us. Plus, I think it’s always better in the long run to have ways to verify your experiences rather than relying entirely on conversations you’re having in your head.
