Every now and again, I get on my controversial soap box now and today is one of those days.
I’ve just read an article online and it’s exactly the type of thing that really irritates me about the New Age industry.
I think its dangerous, misleading, negligent and potentially it could be very damaging to somebody.
The title of the article claimed that ” Frequent Ringing In Ears Is A Sign Of Higher Spiritual Awareness” and here are a few quotes from said article:
“Hearing these frequencies is something beyond ordinary perception and comes as a result of a heightened spiritual awareness”.
“If you are on the path of spiritual growth and you start experiencing this phenomenon, don’t be afraid – as it is an excellent sign. Ringing in your ears that happens frequently is something not many experience.”
“Being able to notice these very subtle energetic frequencies has got a lot to do with your evolved perception of energies. This means that people who are not that spiritually evolved may not hear them at all, or could hear only the lower frequencies”.
“Sometimes the ringing may become too loud. This is a sign that you are exceptionally sensitive to the energies around you.”
Don’t even get me started on the part where the author assesses high and low frequency sounds and suggests that if you are hearing low frequencies it is because you have dark forces coming at you that are much stronger than you, so you need to protect yourself… (or words to that effect). Way to put your audience into fear or what?!
Anyway, I shared this article amongst the women in my FB group (Consciously Abundant Women) and many agreed with me, of the dangers of this article as several of them had health conditions of which ringing in the ears is a part or symptom.
So let me say here and now… frequent ringing in the ears is not just a sign of higher spiritual awareness. It may also be a sign of:
– high histamine levels,
– tinnitus caused by damage to the ear,
– the beginning of hearing loss,
– head and neck injuries,
– high cholesterol,
– high blood pressure
and several other real life disorders that need to get checked by a medical professional.
I am no stranger to spiritual occurrences. I am clairaudient and I HAVE HAD ringing in the ears. I also know that the frequencies can be high or low pitched but it doesn’t necessarily equate to dark forces! I’m not disputing that these things (ringing in the ears) can and do happen but what worries me about this article, is that there are people out there who are so desperate to attribute everything that ever happens to them, as being a spiritual experience, that they will fail to get the correct medical help that they need.
The article suggests that ringing in the ears is a good thing. Please remember that it MAY NOT BE and get yourself checked out by a medical professional FIRST.
If that comes to nothing, then you can get all woo woo on yourself.
Don’t get me wrong… I love woo woo but let’s be practical first because your health could depend upon it.
