What does ringing in the ears mean spiritually? Everything you need to know

In childhood movies like Peter Pan, you may have noticed that fairies communicate through soft sounds like that of ringing bells.

Associated widely with spirituality, the sound of bells is often thought to be a sign of angels stabilising communication with the physical world.

Your guardian angel is your earthly caretaker, guiding you through your spiritual journey. While it can’t appear in human-like form to help you make the right decisions, it can certainly send you messages while you engage in your day-to-day activities.

“The ear is the avenue to the heart.”

– Voltaire

How do I know if the ringing in my ears is a spiritual sign?

The ringing sensation in your ears can stir a lot of confusion and curiosity, especially if you’ve heard of the spiritual connection it holds.

This peculiar occurrence could signify either a message from the higher entities or may be a mere result of natural incidents. A noticeable repetition of ringing inside your ears is a sign that the Universe seeks your attention.

Are you paying attention to your spiritual inbox?

Apart from universal signs, there is always a possibility for the ringing in your ears to be a result of a hidden health condition.

Tinnitus for an instance is caused by the ringing, buzzing, or even hissing that may arise from either one or both of your ears. While there isn’t a theoretical way to detect tinnitus your doctor might be able to diagnose the condition through a variety of sound tests.

Apart from tinnitus, the ringing in your ears may even be a result of conditions such as low blood pressure, a vitamin B12 deficiency or even a simple breakdown from listening to high frequency music for a long time!

But if you’re completely healthy, you need to pay attention to your spiritual self and the external connections the psychic world is trying to establish with you.

Spiritually, we’re on the lookout for a sound that persists and seems to align with significant life incidents. These rings may often add immense value for certain milestones you hope to achieve in life.

Each message is unique depending on the pitch, frequency and which ear continues to ring. The purpose of these messages is to evoke within you a sense of understanding and acceptance along with guidance that’ll help you to overcome life’s nagging battles.

So, listen to the sounds that echo inside your head, they might have something important to tell you. In the text below, we will explore the possible meanings of ringing in the right and the left ear.

What does ringing in the right ear mean?

The attempt of a spiritual being trying to convey an important message is often depicted through the ringing in your right ear. These signals often indicate opportunities for you to expand your psychic being and the higher realms above will likely guide you towards life-changing spiritual awakenings.

Ringing in the right ear will lead you to an eye-opening journey where your spiritual abilities will be rewarded. For instance, this may be a good time for you to start manifesting all the positive things that could happen to you and start developing your inner spiritual self.

You may be at a stage in life where you can easily enhance your unique psychic abilities such as clairaudience, clairsentience and/or clairvoyance.

Clairaudience is related to clairvoyance and runs exclusively on the audible level. For those who do not know what clairaudience means, it is the ability to hear what is inaudible.

With this ability it is possible to connect acoustically with the collective consciousness of humanity, but also with the natural beings and the astral plane.

All these psychic elements will allow you to connect deeply with the other side. For instance, you may notice an enhanced possibility for you to hear, see and feel things beyond the normal human range.

You may notice that your inner consciousness has involuntarily developed its ability to predict future events accurately and understand people around you better than ever.

“Intuition goes before you, showing you the way. Emotion follows behind, to let you know when you go astray. Listen to your inner voice. It is the calling of your spiritual GPS system seeking to keep you on track towards your true destiny.”

― Anthon St. Maarten

1) Positivity is coming your way

If you are someone who’s patiently waiting for some positive news, you may be in luck. This may be a sign that any hopes or expectations that continue to conquer your thoughts, are likely to be fulfilled.

Sometimes in life we end up feeling demotivated or lost after a decision we’ve made, stirring anxiety and stress within our inner self. It could be due to an interview for a job you badly wanted or even an important exam you’ve recently taken.

The ringing in your right ear is a sign that the optimism you’ve been waiting for is on the way. So hold on and don’t forget that you are a real trooper, you’ve come a long way. All it takes is a little hope and a little more patience!

2) Someone is talking about you

Although most people believe that the ringing in your right ear occurs when someone is speaking ill of you, that is not really true. It could actually go both ways.

There’s a chance that you’re being remembered lovingly by someone who is dear to you. They may be worrying about how you’re doing or simply reminding themselves of a memory that includes you.

If you’ve spent quality time with someone significant recently, they could be missing you and the moments they spent with you.

But like everyone assumes, it could even be a depiction of the unkind. A person may be gossiping about you or spilling bad news about you to someone else.

If you recently trusted someone with a secret, this particular ringing sensation could mean that they’re preparing to share your secret with someone else. It could be a family member, a friend or even a person you met a few minutes ago.

Both the dark forces as well as the helpful energies serve us to come closer to the truth or to hinder us. This is a message from the higher entities to be careful about who you choose to trust and keep your guard up when it comes to personal details that test your vulnerability.

So, if someone is really angry or upset with you, in some way or another, you’ll hear it on a low note. If the tone frequency is very intense, check whether there are psychological attacks. A slight noise represents the auditory contact with the collective consciousness.

What you can learn from this is that you should pay attention to the sound frequencies and only you have control over it, you don’t have to know who is reacting negatively to you. It doesn’t matter what others think. You always have a choice between staying in a positive mood or responding to the negative.

3) Angels are trying to comfort you

During the battles we fight in life, we’re often left feeling empty and isolated. There are times where we feel as if we are all alone, especially when we come across a sequence of uncertain events.

A ringing in your right ear could give you the signal that you are not alone in this journey of yours and that you are being watched and taken care of. This omen is one that is meant to comfort you and eliminate any uneasy feelings you may be carrying.

Don’t feel anxious about it, you are in control of the sounds you hear or want to hear. If the frequency is too high then ask your angels and guides or your higher order higher self that the sound is too loud or too intense. You will notice how your prayer is answered.

Generally speaking, higher notes are said to make you feel better. However, everyone has to feel this for themselves – this can vary from person to person. Higher notes are like upgrading your DNA, your vibration.

Every clairaudient person who does not have tinnitus can hear a high-pitched squeaking sound and this is only the first sound, but there are others as well.

“I am never alone, my Soul guides me and my Guardian Angel protects me. That is teamwork at its best.”

― Genevieve Gerard

4) A sign to work on your spirituality

This can’t be stressed enough. For your guardian angels to continue sending you auspicious signs and messages, you need to have faith.  If you haven’t given it much thought, perhaps it’s time for you to believe in the parts of the Universe that aren’t naturally visible.

You need to establish a stronger connection with the intangible world to understand when to take caution and when to be hopeful.

If you are on the spiritual path and hold false beliefs, you are releasing dark energies. It is important to work on consciousness in order to enter the light of truth. If you hear ringing in your ears – higher or lower tones are normal and always short-lived.

Those who are not spiritually awakened may not notice these phenomena or may only notice low vibrational frequencies. Focus on the sensations in your body and the messages that they carry.

Pay attention to how you feel, especially during the time when ear noises like ringing occur. Since the frequencies can change and vary a lot, some people become very excited, some angry or sad – these are the emotions of the darkness inside you.

You are asked to look at your emotions and analyse them from a new standpoint that might enlighten you in yet undiscovered ways.

The ringing of the ears connects you with the frequency with the “what is”, so you might want to practice things like paying attention to universal signs, thanking the universe for all that you currently have before asking for more and developing  a positive mind set.

Each of these individual steps is important, but they must be practised separately on an ongoing basis to strengthen each link in the chain. Once this becomes a natural way of being, you will feel light, content and in tune with the signs that the Universe sends your way.

“Sometimes we’re persuaded to relinquish control, and when this happens, time becomes more synchronic and coincidence more profound. It’s the same cosmic force, but without so many restrictions. This is when guardian angels can roll up their sleeves to say, ‘Now we’ve got food and shelter done, let’s get to work!”

– Jan Golembiewski, ‘Magic’

Nature of the ringing in your right ear

High pitch

Highly evolved beings of light and spiritual beings are strongly attracted to your spiritual centre or crown chakra.

Low pitch

As opposed to high pitched ringing, this signifies an attraction to your lower chakras or survival centres. These are often driven by stressful energies and anxiety.

Buzzing noise

This signifies a strong attachment to another physical being such as a romantic partner, a friend, a parent or even a pet.

Sudden and loud ringing

Chaotic ringing in your ears works almost like a spiritual alarm. This is a strong indication for you to pay attention to the different stages of your life and rethink before making thoughtful decisions.

It could either signify a positive and exciting turn for you or an upcoming event that requires caution.

It could even mean that you’re getting negative energy through black magic, or someone is trying to harm you with psychic attacks.

If you have anyone in mind you think you can communicate with and settle on good terms, you should try to do so and get rid of the negative radiations they have against you.

What does the ringing in my left ear mean?

Ringing in your left ear is mostly based on energy shifts within you and the spiritual world. The resulting situations you come across whenever you make a decision are dependent on your own internal energies.

Most incidents that are related to this situation are based on manifestations. For instance, your thoughts and emotions play a major role in how things will turn out for you.

If you have worrying thoughts filled with anxiety about something, the incident is less likely to favour you.

If you stay hopeful and positive, there’s a high chance that things will work out for you.

1) Things may not work on your behalf

If you’re currently worrying about something that you are going through, there is a high chance that it might not work out the way you’d like for it to happen.

For instance, if you’re waiting to hear from a job that you’ve recently interviewed for, the company may not decide to hire you.

But hopefully, you’ll be rewarded with a better opportunity that may even offer a better compensation for your talents!

It isn’t a sign for you to feel helpless or hopeless, but it’s a sign for you to get ready to accept defeat and strengthen yourself even further for the next milestone in your life.

You may feel yourself transforming into a person who is able to deeply understand the reality of situations.

Instead of being upset over things you cannot control, you will have the urge to become a better, stronger version of yourself.

This will eventually encourage new sparks in both your material life and your spiritual journey with new challenges and rewarding opportunities throughout.

2) A warning that could be either good or bad

When I say “warning” it could always turn out to be either good or bad. If you are expecting something to happen in your favour, the resulting impact is pretty much unpredictable.

It could either benefit you or be harmful to your emotional inner self.

What the angels around you might be trying to say is that even if you desire something, it may not last or may not be meant for you. Even if you manage to have things go your way, there is a high chance that you may lose it later in life.

And most of the time, it is for you to make room to embrace something better. So, this sign feels more of a blessing in disguise, doesn’t it?

3) A signal for you to re-examine your life

During our spiritual and emotional journey, we make decisions based on a number of challenges.

The people we come across, the failures and victories at each stage of life and the different ways in which we react, all play a part in nurturing who we are.

Somewhere along the way, there’s a chance you’ll make a decision based solely on temporary satisfaction. It could be a temporary job that you settled for even though it is not what you always dreamt of doing.

It could even be a physical and emotional change that you weren’t expecting to go through.

Perhaps it’s time for you to sit down for a while and think about your life and its reality. It’s a sign for you to stay calm and reorganise your thoughts for a moment; question yourself.

You might want to ask yourself whether you’re truly happy with the decisions you’ve made so far. And if there’s anything that doesn’t feel right, you might want to consider finding a way to fix things.

It is a signal for you to be authentic with yourself, rethink the decisions you’ve made so far and come to conclusions as to what you truly want.

It is an opportunity for you to figure out anything you might be doing wrong and move you in the right direction towards achieving your life’s purpose.

“There are some things one can only achieve by a deliberate leap in the opposite direction.”

— Franz Kafka

Nature and pitch of the ringing in your left ear

High pitch

Signified growth and enhancements within you as you attract energies that help you to step towards a higher vibration.

Low pitch

This depicts a certain wear-off that happens when you have activated a stressor within your energy circle. Certain negative energies have the ability to lower your vibrations causing the low pitch sound in your left ear.

Buzzing noise

A buzzing noise in your left ear establishes a connection between you and your higher self. It encourages you to remain calm with a feeling of peace and relaxation fuelled by trust in the process.

This will make it much more comfortable to listen to your intuition and letting things happen according to your clock.

Sudden and loud ringing

Sudden and loud ringing in your left ear is a phenomenon used by higher entities to capture your attention. It is more of a warning to make sure that you are living in the moment and concentrating on your present environment.

Why do my ears ring during meditation?

When your ears ring while you meditate, it is often associated with the Kundalini Awakening.

A kundalini awakening can be a terrifying experience for most. It brings out old emotions and energies that you’ve been hiding from the past, and it can be quite traumatic, especially with the reawakening of old experiences and habits.

The ringing of your ears is a physical expression of a kundalini awakening and has been fuelled by an energy rush that travels through your body.

However, this phase in your life will help you to understand your place in the Universe.

Life is all about finding your purpose and this awakening will strengthen the bond you share with the spiritual world.

You will be introduced to new thoughts and ideas, most of which will encourage self-development and you will be able to analyse your life based on your past, present and the future you desire.

However, since your energy will be at the highest possible point as you go through this Kundalini awakening process, you might want to take a break from meditating and try to relax a bit.

This is because if you awaken that energy in yourself and you aren’t truly ready for it – you might encounter serious problems. You will use it in an unconscious way, and that certainly translates to destructive.

Kundalini rises naturally as a reflection of the state of your consciousness and the maturity of participating in our objective reality.

It is the divine energy that accompanies your maturity of right action in accordance with the intention of the Divine Spirit, it is the power of your conscious participation in the Divine. Kundalini is the support and communication of all nature (Prakrti) to the awakened Man (Purushi).

While the highest essence of your energy and inner wisdom is truly important and a significant milestone in your spiritual growth, it might be better for you to relax without pushing your limits off the edge.

“You are heir to a heavenly fortune, the sole beneficiary of an infinite spiritual trust fund, a proverbial goldmine of sacred abundance beyond all common measure or human comprehension. But until you assert your rightful inheritance of this blessed gift, it will remain unclaimed and forever beyond your reach.”

– Anthon St. Maarten

What should I do the next time I experience ringing in my ears?

If there is no medical explanation for the ringing in your ears, it’s most likely a spiritual message that shouldn’t be ignored.

Take this signal as an opportunity to analyse your surroundings; take a closer look at the people around you; observe and think about your life in general.

The angels above aren’t asking you to overthink everything you’ve done so far, but they may be hoping that perhaps a distant memory will help you to have a clearer idea as to what your purpose in life truly is.

If the ringing in your ears signifies positive changes, it’s time for you to sit back and relax and let time do its thing. You may not need to worry as much and hope along with positivity need to be the only manifestation within you.

If it depicts something evil or unhealthy, you may have to rethink your decisions and be careful of the people around you. Find ways to distance yourself from negative energies and use spiritual awakenings as a way to get rid of any negativity radiated on you.

The ringing in your ears however is a prominent indication of your connection with the spiritual world. Your beliefs and faith in these messages will undoubtedly make life easier for you.

Your guardian angels will send more messages your way if you take their signals seriously and uncover the authentic spirituality of your soul.

When you place your faith on those above you, you’ll find yourself feeling less anxious and uneasy.

The Universe will be your comfort zone and your spiritual growth will attract positive transformations and significant pleasures of life. All you need to do is be prepared to embrace everything the Universe has planned for you!
