Spiritual Hearing or Tinnitus?

Spiritual to Me

For many months now I have been experiencing a strange sensation, I am very hard of hearing in terms of everyday normal conversation and normal tasks; when listening to television or radio I need the volume turned to a high setting.

The strange sensation I am referring to is this high/low frequency vibration that seems to be emanating from my ears, but comes from within; from the direction of my brain.

So I decided to try and do some research on this phenomenon and this is what I have come up with so far.

Now my hearing loss is from birth and I have been tested many times over the years to see if the loss is worse; it has maintained the same level of loss to this point, however, as I age I am certain this will decrease further.

Frequency: To understand why dogs can hear higher frequency noise than humans, it is important to understand what frequency is. All sound is made up of waves. Ears take those waves and translate them into an auditory signal that the brain processes as sound. The frequency of sound is measured in hertz, which describes how many cycles the wave makes within a second. What the brain understands as pitch, or how high or how low a particular noise sounds, is a function of the frequency of that noise. A higher hertz rating on a sound results in a perceived higher pitch.

Physical Limits

Human beings have a range that averages from around 64 Hz to 23kHz. Dogs on the other hand hear from around 67 Hz to 45kHz, meaning they have the ability to hear sounds with almost double the frequency that humans can perceive. These limits are imprecise, as factors such as individual physiology and age-related deterioration affects that actual hearing range of any individual person or dog.

The megahertz, abbreviated MHz, is a unit of alternating current (AC) or electromagnetic (EM) wave frequency equal to one million hertz (1,000,000 Hz). The megahertz is commonly used to express microprocessor clock speed. The unit is occasionally used in measurements or statements of bandwidth for high-speed digital data, analog and digital video signals, and spread spectrum signals. Other units of frequency are the kilohertz (kHz), equal to 1,000 Hz or 0.001 MHz, and the gigahertz (GHz), equal to 1,000,000,000 Hz or 1,000 MHz.

You can construct an arbitrary waveform and use it as a modulating waveform to generate a musical passage on a function generator. By varying the vertical values of an arbitrary waveform you produce different frequencies, and by varying the number of horizontal points of the waveform you control the duration of the notes.

Tinnitus /ˈtɪnɪtəs/; from the Latin word tinnītus meaning "ringing" is the perception of sound within the human ear not including the perception of sound outside the ear.

Most people with tinnitus have some degree of hearing loss,in that they are often unable to hear clearly external sounds that occur within the same range of frequencies as their "phantom sounds". This has led to the suggestion that one cause of tinnitus might be a homeostatic response of central dorsal cochlear nucleus auditory neurons that makes them hyperactive in compensation to auditory input loss.

I have been to an auditory specialist about this particular problem and was told that they could not find any significant reason to think this was caused by tinnitus, but that it is difficult to determine sometimes.

I feel I am experiencing something different.

The vibratory frequency seems connected to a spiritual place that I am attached to the consciousness of something greater than this reality; I can already hear the call for proof of this coming from the naysayers and skeptics.

Perception (from the Latin perceptio, percipio) is the organization, identification, and interpretation of sensory information in order to represent and understand the environment.

My feeling is based on my perception, but it is, also, coming from an intuitive sense, one that I am very much aware of.

intuition - direct perception of truth, fact, etc., independent of any reasoning process; immediate apprehension. (1 of 5)

There has been much read and said over the past several months of a change in the cosmic energy surrounding us and I feel much of what I am experiencing has to do with this occurrence. I believe many are experiencing the same feelings to a degree, but are inclined to ignore them or write them of as a physical anomaly that can be explained easier.

I choose to accept the spiritual reasoning because it "rings true" rather than the tinnitus possibility. I feel that i am reaching a higher vibratory frequency daily with the ascension of my soul coming very soon and preparing me for the next step in my evolutionary process to the dimension of my destination. As i wrote in another article recently, I do not believe in death, so I am not speaking of this, rather I am speaking of the process any soul must take in order to reach a higher level of consciousness.

I offered these other outside snippets to show a differing of possibilities. Feel free to share your opinion. The one about the dogs was just for FYI, lol; as I am not a dog.

To those who respond, thank you in advance, I have a severe nerve condition, so when I write it takes a lot for me to do so and I will not be able to reply to all, I will do my best to answer any of you that give serious thought.

You have tinnitus.

I can hear earthquakes. Normally it will be a high pitched whining. Either one ear or both. I actually heard the Mineral County quake not too long ago. I live in Washington D.C. If the quake is far away though, I won't hear a thing.

It could be
Clairaudience or Menieres Syndrome/ tinnitus.
I went to so many concerts when younger and used headphones really loud which can also cause this...

**Spiritual Hearing or Tinnitus?**
That's a good question soulpowertothendegree.

Another one would be "Psychosis or Heavenly/Hellish Visions"?

Such things can't be decided in the (w)hole.

A proper individual AND personal (direct physical contact) account (and situation) must occur with a "specialist" to "decide" what the personal nature of the problem might be.

I'm also experiencing this tone that emanates from the centre of my head. This has occurred for near on a year.

I have little time to comment on your post now as I'm off out, but will sit down and share my experiences tomorrow.

Most days I'm scouring the internet for answers such is the impact it is having on me, so thank you for starting this thread.

Research today lead me to 'Nada Brahma' or 'Divine Sounds'. You may also want to research the Pineal Gland which is linked to the 6th chakra location, also known as the 'Third Eye'.

Until then.

Very interesting thread OP,

I definitely feel that its spiritual, i can always remember hearing white noise when everything around me is silent, i often get odd tones that suddenly start loud then fade out, sometimes when my husband, and some other males speak their voices seem to create a feeling of someone tapping on my eardrum which is quite unconfortable,

about 18 months ago i started to suffer exploding head syndrome, the name for it says it all, just as im drifting off to sleep i sometimes get a really loud click or electrical sound in the centre of my head and a bright flash in my eyes at the same time..... tinnitus surely can't explain the various electrical sounds that i hear in the centre of my head, and even if it did then the visual hallucination that occurs at exactly the same time has nothing to do with tinnitus,

i wish you all the best, thanks for sharing your thoughts

I had cancer when I was a teenager. The chemotherapy and antibiotics caused some severe hearing loss in me. I also got tinnitus with hearing loss, but it never really bothered me much. It's easy for me to ignore and tune out.

But it wasn't until several years later that I started meditating, eating healthier, reading scriptures, practicing yoga, and making positive lifestyle changes that I began to notice these "inner noises." Luckily, I was already on the path where I could learn about these so-called "inner, spiritual sounds."

Even more bizarre--I had a buddy who went through cancer at the same time as me. We both ended up becoming spiritual aspirants after our experience. He did not sustain any hearing loss at all, but has admitted to hearing the same "spiritual" sounds as well.

Others will call it tinnitus; well, they're probably inexperienced in such matters of hearing loss and spiritual aspiration. Follow your intuition on the matter and ignore those who have no direct experience!

Pay attention to the rise and lowering of the pitch. It's a bit of a guide. Do you notice the pitch raise or lower based on certain thoughts, behaviors, or moods? This is what you'll want to pay attention to.

I hear these "inner" sounds more readily when in deep meditation. They ARE inner, spiritual sounds. Stay thy course, friend.

It seem to be Third eye symptoms from my point of view but I might be projecting. Only had a sound once on the "internal speakers".

Any tingling on the middle of the forehead or are you noticing strange coincidences/synchronicity?

I apologise for my late reply, it's May Bank Holiday here and the sun's been shining so it's been busy.

As mentioned, I too am experiencing the same tone from within my head. Intuition tells me that this isn't something that's medically wrong, rather a connection to something spiritual.

To go with my gut, I believe that my Pineal Gland has awakened. There's been several stages to this and the tone is enduring.

I remember starting with what felt like terrible cluster headaches about a year ago. Now I do not recall if the headaches started before or after the tone, but definitely around the same time.

When the headaches subsided, I went through a period where my forehead would feel like I'd walked through a spider web, a tingling, ticklish feeling. It was an ongoing sensation that was quite pleasurable, never annoying. I'd sit at work stroking my forehead, baffled by it. LittleByLittle made mention of this in their post.

Those symptoms have both ceased, and all that's left is the tone. As I'm typing this particular paragraph, the tone has increased to a pitch that is audible over the TV. I'm really at ease with it too because of the belief that it's spiritual.

I'd lie there at night thinking that maybe I was picking up an electrical signal from some appliance in the house. It was only when really focusing on it, realisation hit that the tone could be increased or decreased by thought alone. it also kicks in when I research certain subjects online or when reading. It can also oscillate back and forth at quite an accelerated speed.

Another thing to note is that certain thoughts can trigger a fluttering feeling that flows through my whole body, as though certain thoughts hit a 'sweet spot'. This is an extremely pleasurable sensation, and definitely a positive one. I'll ask certain questions in my head and will often get a response via the flutter.

Lucid dreams are also par of the course now. Extremely vivid, sometimes repeat, lucid dreams. Where physical sensations exist, colours are so bright and fantastic and places are visited sometimes more than once. Occupants of these places will often acknowledge me. Before sleep and during 'tone', I'll see brilliant colours coming in waves, grids, blue circular formations with what appear to be yellow flames emanating from the edges.

An experience happened the first Saturday of November last year, around 11am, while lying on the sofa with my eyes closed. I was in a lucid dream (but very alert and conscious), and something pivotal happened in the dream which triggered three loud cracks, each accompanied by a brilliant white flash in my head, followed by the sensation of my head being sucked through the centre of my head, with sound and intense feeling. It was exhilarating, I got excited thinking 'this is it, some thing's happening' and with that excited panic, I lost it. That experience has stayed with me and I often relive it like it was this morning. A week last Thursday I got close again, hearing one loud crack like a branch snapping, but my cell phone went off and ruined the moment. I also took note of Minnie1985's post, mentioning 'Exploding Head Syndrome' (EHS). Research lead me to EHS, but this didn't ring true for me as the dream was definitely relevant and there was absolutely no fear felt, contrary to what EHS suggests.

This is all very real, not imagination or flights of fancy. Research has been intensive and all roads lead to the Pineal Gland. It is understandable that medical theories should be put forward to the debate. One of my best friends is a massive skeptic and we'll debate often, however, I've always maintained my stance and never once wavered in my belief, only present more evidence and incidents of synchronicity etc. I believe I'm at least being taken seriously by her now.

I'm sorry if I appear to have gone off on a tangent here. It's the fact that all of the above experiences to me are part and parcel of this tone. I've longed for a thread to come along that related to my experience. Others have come before this I know, but nothing current. For me, the tone accompanies the Pineal Gland, hand in hand. There's a David Wilcock video on You-Tube that's very interesting that will give you a brief idea of the Pineal Gland's functionality, and also interesting information on apparent worship of it and the possible suppression of its awakened state by TPTB! It's all very fascinating and worth your time. There's also a PDF you can find online, 'Awakening the Third Eye' - Third Edition by Samuel Sagan, M.D.

I hope it all makes sense as admittedly I've rushed it so as to keep my promise of a reply. Maybe you'll recognise some of these symptoms in yourself, maybe they're yet to come. All I'll say is go with it, enjoy the tone's presence and believe it's a connection to something higher that we have no possible concept of yet. If you have any questions, please ask away.

Hey There,
I just realized I have had tinnitus since I was a child. Not diagnosed but lately I have noticed a wind in my ears. It became loud and sometimes my ear ached. I researched it and realized I have always had the ringing in my ears since I was a kid. I remember waking up at night as a child and going to the bathroom and even though it was silent ... the absence of noise was still so loud. It was almost like I could hear the blood rushing through my body and some sort of ringing.

I thought It was normal until this happened recently and I researched it. I have been working with a life coach lately. Brian Johnson and have done some great emotional work also going through a transition in my life in my career/passion.

Enjoyed reading the posts above. Interested to hear updates!
