10 Spiritual Meanings of Ringing In Your “Right” and “Left” Ears

Has your right ear ever suddenly started ringing, perhaps disconcertingly, only to stop again and go back to normal? And then did you just forget it and go on with your day?

If you did, you may have been ignoring important messages from the spirit world and you may have missed the valuable guidance being offered.

To make sure you don’t make the same mistake next time, here we answer the question, what does ringing in your right ear mean?

10 Spiritual Meanings of Ringing In Your Right and Left Ears 1

Eliminate medical explanations first

Although, as we’ll see in a moment, ringing in the ears may have various spiritual meanings, before you start investigating this side of things, it is important to eliminate medical causes first.

In medicine, ringing in the ears is known as tinnitus, and it is relatively common, with up to 10-15% of people suffering from at least a mild version of the condition. In most cases, it doesn’t bother people too much, and most are able to adapt and lead a perfectly normal life.

However, a smaller proportion of people, around 1-2%, suffer from serious tinnitus that has a negative impact on their quality of life.

What causes tinnitus?

Technically, tinnitus isn’t a disease but rather the symptom of a range of conditions, with the most common being loss of hearing due to exposure to loud noise or simply from aging.

Tinnitus can also be down to ear infections, ear wax, heart disease and many other causes besides.

This means if you suffer from a constant or even occasional ringing in one or both ears, your first step should be to visit a medical professional for a diagnosis – and if you are diagnosed with tinnitus, you’ll know it has a physical rather than spiritual cause.

It must be stressed that however powerful the spiritual world may be, it’s important to eliminate any earthly, physical causes first – because if you have a medical condition, it can be treated with mainstream medical techniques.

That said, most cases of tinnitus are known as “subjective”, which means the sounds are unable to be picked up by medical instruments.

Sometimes the cause of the ringing can’t be established medically, in which case, it may be time to think about whether the ringing in your ears has a spiritual meaning instead.

How can you tell if the ringing is spiritual in origin?

If you see a medical doctor and they are unable to give you a positive diagnosis or find a medical reason for the condition, it’s a good indication that the ringing may be spiritual in origin.

This is especially true if the ringing only occurs sometimes – most tinnitus sufferers can hear ringing or other noises in their ears all the time, which is part of what makes the condition so unbearable since there is no respite.

Finally, if you feel no pain or discomfort from the ringing but merely experience it for a short while before everything goes back to normal, this is another sign that the ringing has a spiritual cause.

Ironically, it is this ephemeral quality that causes many people to miss the spiritual signs being sent – because the less spiritually inclined will simply pay it no heed and carry on as if it hadn’t happened.

This is unfortunate, however, since ringing in the ears can signify powerful messages coming from the spiritual world, and learning to hear these messages can give you valuable guidance in your life.

So now let’s look at what ringing in the ears means – and how to interpret it – in more detail.

Where does ringing in the ears come from and what does it mean?

Although many might not realize, everyone and everything in the universe is connected, and we are all surrounded by powerful fields of energy. Furthermore, as well as the people we can see in the world, we are all surrounded by angels, beings made of pure light and energy.

When we experience ringing in the ears, it is often related to this unseen spiritual world. It may mean that we are picking up certain vibrations or changes of energy, or it may mean that an angel is trying to communicate with us to pass on a message.

In general terms, ringing in your ears may tell you that you are someone who is particularly in tune with the spiritual world and that you have a natural gift for picking up the messages that come to us from the ether.

Alternatively, it can mean that you are beginning to go through a spiritual awakening, and the ringing in your ears is a sign of your growing awareness of the spiritual side of life as you begin to hear things you were unaware of before.

Trust your intuition to uncover the meaning

As with many things, the key to understanding and interpreting the messages that come to us from the spirit world is to learn to trust your intuition.

When you reach a place of calm and peacefulness, perhaps through meditation, you should learn to accept the insights that come to you.

At the same time, you also need to know about some of the common meanings of different types of ringing in the air, like the pitch of the sound and which ear you hear it in.

So let’s start with ringing in the right ear.

ringing in right ear meaning

Ringing in the right ear is most associated with the spiritual world while ringing in the left ear is more closely related to the physical world – which we’ll talk more about in a moment.

When you hear ringing in your right ear, you should use information like your state of mind when it occurred, what you were doing when it occurred and the pitch and duration of the ringing along with your intuition to determine what the cause of the ringing was.

Here are some common reasons for hearing ringing in the right ear:

1. Message from an angel or spirit guide

Sometimes when you hear a ringing in your right ear, it may mean that an angel, spirit guide or even a departed loved one is trying to pass a message to you. This kind of message is usually characterized by a high-pitched ringing in the right ear.

The meaning of the message may not be immediately clear, but by taking the time to think about it deeply, your intuition should give you the answer.

These messages can often simply be reminders that you are not alone and that somebody is watching over you all the time. If you are feeling especially lonely when the ringing occurs, this could be a clue to the meaning of the message.

However, the sound could also be a message of encouragement or a warning, and only you will be able to work out which it is. If the meaning is not clear at first, look out for other signs such as angel numbers appearing in your life and the true meaning will become apparent.

2. A blessing on the horizon

Ringing in the right ear may also be a sign that good fortune is about to befall you. It could be related to your studies, your career, your love life or anything else, but it is likely that you will succeed in something that is important to you in the near future.

If you hear ringing in your right ear, you should ensure you keep thinking positively and continue sending out positive energy – and then you will find you pass the exam you took, you get accepted for the job interview you went to or that your love life takes a turn for the better.

3. Reminder to devote more time to spiritual matters

Not all right ear ringing is positive, and sometimes it can be a reminder that you are focusing too much on the physical world and are neglecting spiritual matters.

Do you think this could be the case for you? In which case, you need to take the time to devote more time to the spiritual side of things.

4. Someone talking about you

It’s among the oldest of old wives’ tales that if you feel your ears burning, it means someone is talking about you. And like all folk wisdom, it contains more than just a grain of truth, even if it has become a little distorted with time.

When somebody is talking about you, your guardian angel will try to warn you, and this is what the ringing may be – and this is also the origin of the saying.

It could be that someone is gossiping about you and saying bad things about you behind your back, so it can serve as a warning to be careful about who you trust.

At the same time, it can also mean that someone is thinking of you or saying nice things, so again, think calmly and deeply and trust your intuition for the correct interpretation.

5. Shift in vibrational states

A ringing in the ear can be caused by a shift in the vibrational states around you, and this may be brought on by a change in your level of spiritual awareness.

You may be going through a period of spiritual awakening or you may be experiencing the opening of your third eye, perhaps through your own efforts or possibly involuntarily.

When this happens, you may hear a lower-pitched ringing in your right ear, and it is a sign that you are becoming more attuned to the divine sound of the universe.

6. A spiritual emergency

A loud ringing that comes on suddenly is a strong sign of some kind of spiritual emergency – an angel or higher being is trying to pass on an important message that you should act on without delay.

Look deep inside yourself and have faith in your judgement to understand what you need to do.

7. Connection to another person

A persistent buzzing or white noise indicates a strong connection with another person. Is that connection healthy or unhealthy?

A strong connection with someone positive can be mutually beneficial, but if the person is negative, even if it is a person you love very much, that connection may sap your psychic energy, leaving you drained and lethargic.

ringing in left ear meaning

As we mentioned, a ringing in your left ear is more related to the physical world than the spiritual one, but you can still pick up important messages from your left ear that can help you make the right decisions in your life.

Here are just a few examples of what this ringing can mean, but as always, you should think about when and how the ringing occurs and use your intuition to work out the meaning.

8. You are losing control of a situation

Sometimes in life, we can start to lose control of a situation, and before we know it, things get out of hand and there’s no way back. When you hear ringing in your left ear, it can be a warning that this is happening and that you should act now before it’s too late.

9. A warning that something is not going as you hoped or expected

Many times, we go into something new full of hope and optimism, but unfortunately, things don’t go as planned. However, we are often reluctant to accept this, and instead, we stick at it, hoping that the situation will improve.

Ringing in the left ear can be a warning against letting things go on as they are and to accept that you won’t achieve the desired result. It may mean you need to find the courage to admit that things just aren’t going to work out.

10. Advice that something important in your life needs re-evaluating

Finally, ringing in your left ear may mean that you need to re-evaluate a major aspect of your life and perhaps make big changes. Is it your career? Your relationship? Your life goals and ambitions? Look inside yourself for the answers because you’re the only one who knows.

Important spiritual messages that shouldn’t be ignored

So as we have seen, ringing in the ears may have a medical cause – but it may also represent an important spiritual message. So make sure you listen carefully to what the message is trying to tell you and trust your intuition to interpret its meaning.

This way, you will make the most of this vital information, allowing it to guide your decisions and actions, both in the physical world and the spiritual one too.

  2. Hi when there’s ringing in my right ear it’s definitely from a higher being. There are three instances for ringing in my right ear.
    1. When I prayed to Jesus Christ
    2. When watching a video
    3. When reading the Bible

    Usually when my left ear ring it’s a warning of something bad to come. Or if it’s a person.

    • I was thinking of my mom who recently passed in 2020 and also thinking of a job I had applied for when I heard ringing in my right ear.

    • seek medical care! that is probably more of a hearing concern, but if doctors can’t figure it out then it may be spiritual.

  3. Hi my right eye had a very loud bell but dus not last very long I had been praying to God and Archangel Michael that my mum was in hospital and has decided in to a care home also my mums family have not been nice to help I asked God got guidance earlier today

  4. Thank you so much reading this helped me find out why my right ear was ringing 10 minutes ago. I was wondering when my grades are going to get better and that I know I won’t be able to pass the test that’s coming up and my ear started ringing right away so thank you for this information.

  5. My left ear rings really loud ats times..My right ears rings also. At times it happens often should I be worried. Or is it trying tell me something?

  6. Hi I have had ringing in both of my ears, while sleeping I was flying straight up with my arms along my side like a rocket. High pitched ringing I saw different timelines. Didn’t know what was going on but now I know. What about when you have music playing and somebody sing, but not in English no one else heard it but me It lasted for at least an hour. And all this going on in my left ear. Well I’m on my personal spiritual journey all by myself and have to figure these things out myself so I do lots of research that’s what brought me to your website. Thanks for all the information.

    • Same here. I always hear ringing in both my ears and sometimes short high pitched sounds. Today I woke up and I heard a loud and very clear male voice speak to me in Spanish in my left ear. It’s funny because I fell asleep meditating.

    • It almost sounds like you could be getting in touch with your psychic abilities and may be starting to tune into the more physical side of the spiritual side world (spirits are reaching out to u and manifesting physically like u hearing them sing or seeing their timelines) just a thought:)

  7. Hi I’ve been experiencing the ringing in my right and left ear and it only happens when 1.I pray to my Father God and Jesus and Mother Mary and 2. When I read the bible. At first I didn’t want caused the ringing but when I pray or read the bible my left ear starts to ring. I knew it was something bad…When I think about it I remember I had a demon in my room and it kept on saying every night, “God and Jesus aren’t going to save you” with a smile and I would begin to start to pray. Every since we moved the demon left me alone and I think it caused the ringing in my left ear now..

  9. Hi thanks for all the info you gave. My right ear had a low pitch ringing sound (short). I have a lot of things that is going on. I have a cousin that just passed, me and my sister and mom are not speaking to each other, and currently unemployed. Which is very stressful at the moment. But I’m trying to really not dwell on these things cause I know that there is always a solution to every dilemmas in life. I want to always think positive even with negative things in life. I have a hard time meditating. What can I do to sort all the stuff in my life and begin the journey for spiritual awakening?

    • Watch videos for sure!! And meditation is hard so try not to be super hard on yourself. Watch meditation videos to learn more and maybe you really could start there. But everyone’s different so definitely look into different areas YouTube helps a lot!! I recommend Ashley Flores
