What Does Ringing in Your Ears Mean Spiritually

Sometimes it can be annoying, but what does ringing in your ears mean spiritually, and how does that apply to you? As spiritual beings, there are some things that happen to us, which we don’t always understand directly.

This certainly is one of these things. Ringing in your ears can have certain direct causes but for the most part the cause and the cure is not clear from a medical point of view.

You’re going to want to start paying attention to it, as it could mean anything from a visiting spirit, to vibrational changes that are busy manifesting in your life.

Understanding why it’s happening is the first task.

We are energetic beings and changes to the subtle world around us, can cause our bodies to do strange things.

However, this can give us an intuitive insight into our perceptions, other people, and urgent messages. The universe communicates with us in a multitude of ways, and its language is energy.

Once you begin to learn about this, like any language, you can learn to speak right back.

You’ve found this article to help you understand what is the spiritual meaning of ringing in your ears, so, let’s look at a few reasons why you are hearing this little sound and what it might mean for you spiritually.

1. Pay attention.

Our Angels, guides and spirit team can communicate with us in a multitude of ways. One of these systems is as simple as creating a ringing in your ear.
Old wives tales would have you believe that someone is talking about you, and that might indeed be the case. But the way in which spirit use ringing to communicate, is to tell you to pay attention, right now!

A sudden high-pitched noise in your inner ear can be an instant warning that you are in danger. Assess the situation around you and if you feel at all uneasy, leave.

As simple as that. Many people have said after horrible events, that they left because they felt uneasy, and because of this, they were not in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Ringing could mean to pay attention to what is coming next. Guides communicate with signs and symbols too, so look out for these.

For example: if you’re thinking about a decision to move jobs and you get a ringing in your ear and the next moment a huge sign with the new company logo appears, you are being guided to trust and bite the bullet. It could be the best thing you ever did!

2. Vibrational Changes.

As we go through life on this spiritual journey, our main goal is to raise our vibration, connect and experience life in all its wonderful forms. If you find that you have a constant tinnitus like sound, this could mean that your vibrations are on the up.

When our vibrational level changes, our physical bodies still need to get used to these and adjust to them accordingly.

One way that we can tell this is happening is by changes to our hearing.

Sound becomes different and you may find that you are more aware of your senses, not just your hearing. Ringing is a sign that your vibrations are increasing, and you can hear it!

So, whatever it is you’re doing, keep doing it. Don’t worry about the ringing, this should level out in a few weeks to months, once your body gets used to the new energetic you.

3. Information Downloads.

Another wonderful sign that you are receiving divine intervention, is ringing that is intermittent. If this is you, then pay attention to your thoughts when it happens and if you are receiving any information that you didn’t know before.

When we receive guidance or universal information, sometimes we can hear the frequency change when this is happening.

That’s why you get the ringing. If you are developing spiritually or you have asked for guidance from higher sources, then when your ears make this annoying sound, it could mean that you are receiving that information in an information download.

Guides will give you the information that you need for the next stage in your development, or the guidance you have asked for, in the form of an information dump.

Be aware of what information is in your mind at these times and whatever it is that you “just know”, then trust that this is the information you need right now, to take you forward into whatever your next phase is.

If you also show gratitude at this time, it will begin to happen a lot more often too.

4. Bad Energy.

Do you ever get that feeling that you are just in the presence of something not quite right, or would even go so far as to say: something bad?

Your intuition is not something to be ignored, if you fell like this then pay attention and watch, because you’ll be proved right.

If you get this feeling in particular situations or around specific people, then this is a reason to distance yourself from that person or experience. A ringing in your ear when you move into someone’s space, is a sure-fire way to tell that they are not for you.

The best example of this is an untrustworthy or toxic co-worker.

An immediate ringing in your ear when you join them at the coffee machine, could mean that your intuition is en-pointe. Never give them any personal ammo to use or trust them with a small mistake you made at work, because this will blow up in your face, the moment that the opportunity arises.

Inner ear ringing is such a good indicator of this, that you can test it, and watch the results for yourself. You will be equally glad you did and surprised at your new little intuitive tool.

5. Twin Flames.

Are you in search of your Twin Flame, or you might already be in a relationship with them? Then having this little disturbance in your ear is a good sign that you are definitely connected with them.

If you are still looking for love, then a ringing in your ear could mean that your other half is near, so pay attention to the energy around you and let your intuition guide you here.

The universe will begin to send you further signs to ensure you find them. Don’t worry about missing it, twin flames are destined to be together, it is already written. Just keep an eye out and you can’t go wrong.

Those already in a relationship, this is a great way to pay attention when your other half needs you or is thinking about you.

Use the sign and message them when it happens, I bet they’ll be surprised at the level of intuition you have for them.

It is also a lovely way to make someone feel loved and that their needs are important to you.

Being aware of how they are feeling, will mean so much to them and only add to your already exceptional relationship.

6. Spirit is near.

As we know, ringing in the ears means vibrational change of some sort. Every being, spirit, angel, and guide has a different vibrational frequency.

On earth, our vibration is pretty low generally, as this is a very dense place to live. So, our vibrations are much lower than those who might want to contact us. This includes passed over loved ones.

When spirit get close to you, the ringing is a change in the air, as such. You can feel them bringing their energy into your energetic field, so that they can let you know they are there. Make sure to concentrate at these times, if you can, close your eyes and focus inward, to see what feelings you get.

Can you feel who it is, why they are there and what they want to say?

This is a great way to develop your Clair-senses (Clairvoyance, Clairsentience etc). So, when this happens, try it out and see what you get. The more you do it, the more spirit will come and help you to do this.

So, what does ringing in your ears mean spiritually for you? Experiencing this phenomenon is always something that can be identified and used to your advantage.

It is your energetic self, feeling a change in your world and notifying you of it.

So, next time this happens to you, stop for a moment, and work out what this means, as your intuition is never wrong.
