Chazah is an ancient word that was first made up of symbols before it was written in letters. It is the Hebrew word for vision, but it means more than just seeing with the natural eye. Chazah means prophetic vision that comes from hearing God.
The ancient aramaic meaning of chazah is “the seeing ear” or “the hearing eye”.
As odd as that sounds to the Western mind, it expresses the Eastern Semitic way of looking at things quite well; namely, that spiritual seeing and hearing are so connected that they become a unified sense.
Chazah comes through inspiration. It is the in- “spiration” or in- “breathing” of God’s Breath.
