Okay, so I see some posts about hums, bells, tones, and other strange noises which appear to have an internal source. Here’s something people need
to understand about sound. Back when audiology was researching tinnitus (ringing in the ears) they would actually cut the auditory nerves on some
people, thus rendering the ears completely and permanently deaf (this was done as a last resort for people who agreed to the experimental
research—I’m talking about the kind of people ready to kill themselves to stop the tinnitus.) So, after cutting the nerve, their brain should no
longer be receiving any auditory input at all! You guessed it. The tinnitus wasn’t affected and continued just the same.
This leads me to the hums, bells, and tones etc. There are “inner” sounds that are not heard by the ear or instruments of hearing. In many
mystical frameworks, these are often referred to as etheric sounds. I believe hums, bells, and tones et all are such etheric sounds that cannot be
heard by the ear, but only through “inner” processes. They are quite common for spiritual aspirants and seekers. Many describe these as the
vibrational qualities of the constituent sounds of AUM/OM; the Om vibration itself being slightly different from the hums, bells, and tones. It’s no
wonder to me that bells are used in so many religious and ritual ceremonies. Bells are used to signal the start of church services, to cleanse a room
before meditation, to alert demi-gods that their offerings are ready, bells used in funeral marches etc. Bells and smoke are the telephone lines
between here and “there”.
So, what’s it all about? In my experience these tones and vibrations happen when I am most relaxed, during meditation, or at auspicious times. It is
also common to hear them when falling asleep, upon waking, and during sleep paralysis/ astral travel preliminaries etc. That means pay attention to
them! You may notice the tonal qualities change based on your thoughts, moods, behaviors, and actions. You are literally hearing your current
vibrational state—which is transient.
I use this vibrational “slide-whistle” to help me discern right from wrong. If the tone goes higher in pitch—good. If the tone lowers
itself—make a better choice. This is where free will and human ego fails us though. I can’t tell you the number of times I have gone to do
something I know I should have made a better choice on and had the “no,no!” vibration telling me so—it is always up to us to make the choice. We
are all three: the accuser, the accused, and the judge.
I do not believe such sounds to be implants. If you can hear it with your ear—that is a different thing than hearing it without the ear (think back
to the tinnitus research). I just imagine technological implants not creating etheric sounds—but then again, I’m pretty much trying to write the
ground rules of science-fiction/fantasy and don’t really know for sure.
Although, some normal sounds occur with colds, sinus infections, cochlear fluid etc. Be aware of those medical explanations as well because those are
definitely thrown into the mix—not to mention the sounds of tinnitus itself which we must be aware of. There’s a lot of sorting to do! But, it can
be done if one pays close attention.
