Noticing an obtrusive ringing sound in the ears can be a symptom of a medical condition.
However, in many cases, people—particularly those who are highly sensitive to energy—experience a frequent and loud ringing noise or buzzing sensation in their ears (also known as “white noise”) with no direct link to the physical body or credible medical explanation.
When there is no medical condition, it is widely believed that the sound or sensation of ear ringing is due to being tuned into the divine sound of the universe and resonating with source energy. This is associated with spiritual awakening, and is thought to happen when our energetic vibration is lifting and we are on the path to ascension; our energy body is attuning to much higher frequencies.
When we are able to hear subtle sounds, it is believed we have the ability to hear the sound of creation taking place, and it often means something new and big is happening somewhere in the universe that will have a direct impact on our personal life.
Celia Fenn explains a little more in depth about our physical biology and the function of the inner ear:
“There is a cochlear spiral in each ear, and they work together to facilitate the function of hearing in the body. Both are connected into the nervous system and the brain. However, the impulses that activate the cochlear spiral on the level of Higher Consciousness are transmitted via the pituitary gland and then into the cochlear via various neural pathways and light meridians. This means that when Galactic Light Codes are being transmitted very strongly through Solar and Galactic radiation waves, then the pineal is more strongly activated and likewise, in those who are ready, the Cochlear begins to vibrate with the messages of the Language of Light!”
Ringing tones in the ear can be high or low and can switch frequencies, and some tones are so intense that they cause a powerful shift in our mood, causing us to feel peaceful and calm, with others leaving us irritable, angry, or fearful.
Along with noise or sensation in their ears, many people experience enhanced empathy and compassion, a buzzing sensation around their crown chakra, dizziness, nausea, tingling on their face and head, tension headaches, and disrupted sleep patterns.
High-pitched ear ringing is one of the major signs that we are temporarily unbalanced and that we are going through a spiritual transformation. It is said to be a message from the higher realms that an important life change is coming, and this is an energetic way of higher energy forces tapping into our conscious awareness so that we stay alert and pay attention.
Many people perceive ear ringing as a confirmation that they are on the right path, and as a symptom of heightened vibration, which opens access to enter higher dimensions—for example, moving from the third dimension up to the fourth or fifth. These messages are also viewed as downloads, which infuse us energetically with the specific information, knowledge, and wisdom that we require to sail through particular challenges or troubles with ease.
Ear ringing is known to be more prominent when we are going through certain energy shifts, especially collective ones, and is more noticeable during celestial events such as new and full moons, solar eclipses, solar storms, and planetary alignments, when the veil between the visible and invisible world is thinner than normal. It is thought that cosmic entities psychically tone our energy so that we are in sync with the frequency of our planet and universal energy, and are harmonious with our surroundings.
We may also experience what is known as an “activation,” which is when we gain heightened awareness, receive sudden existential insights, and a noticeable increase in our intuition and inner knowing. This may mean that seemingly “out of nowhere” we discover the answers to questions we have been pondering for some time, and we’re able to perceive our personal circumstances with clarity and without the illusions caused by emotional or mental blocks.
It is believed that high-pitched ringing in the right ear signifies good fortune or exciting news, and is seen as clarification that a positive new chapter is about to begin, that something we have been working on (or a desired outcome) is coming to fruition.
Low-pitched ringing in the left ear is seen as a warning sign—and we should take a step back and listen carefully to our intuition before continuing, remaining wary of our current surroundings or the people we are connecting with at that moment. It can mean that something we are currently working toward will not be successful, or that a relationship we are currently involved in, whether romantic, friendly, or with a family member is not fulfilling us, or is unhealthy or harmful in some way.
Lower frequency ringing is also thought to be a sign that we are receiving a “psychic attack” from someone, meaning that someone is thinking or talking negatively about us, or projecting low vibrational energy toward us. Note: we have full control over the type of energy we both send and receive, and energy can only pull our own vibration down if we allow it to.
Within spirituality, it is said that the right ear receives messages about the universe and higher etheric realms, and the left ear relates to messages about life here on Earth. To hear ringing in either ear is a profound reminder that we are energy beings, and to remain aware of our eternal spiritual nature.
People who are able to sense and hear sounds and frequencies that are inaudible (outside the normal scope of hearing) are known to have the spiritual gift of clairaudience, which means “clear hearing.” They are also ultra-sensitive to the sound emitted from electronics that produce high-pitched frequencies, and have more enhanced intuition and awareness.
Once we have paid attention to the meaning associated to our ears ringing, we can alleviate the sensation by meditating to find out why we are receiving the message and where it has come from. To re-balance and ground our energy, we can remain mindful, be silent in solitude, spend time in nature, practice yoga, create art, hum, or chant.
Disclaimer: it is important to contact a medical professional if you experience ringing in the ears as it can be a symptom of a medical condition that should not be ignored. If there is no medical reason, then it is highly possible the ringing is connected to spiritual awakening.
