I don't know what it's like to not 'hear' energy or Spirit. I have a feeling I would miss it greatly if I lost this sense.
In my work I get to experience sounds that indicate to me when a body is out of balance and then I get to experience the sound of a body 'singing' when balance has been achieved. Each system of a physical body has a tone. When things are out of balance it sounds like an orchestra tuning up. When the systems are in balance the body sounds like a piece of heavenly music being played.
I sometimes 'hear' the sound of a person's soul. It's a beautiful thing. I think if everyone got to hear the sound of their own soul they would know their own beauty and the world would be a happier place.
Sometimes, when working with a client during a Healing session or Akashic Records reading, the crystals in the room will start 'singing'. It's a wonderful thing to hear the energy of a stone. They all have unique sound signatures. That's one of the reasons why I enjoy having so many around me.
Occasionally, I get to hear Angels sing. Mere words cannot describe the sacredness and beauty of these moments. As I write this tears come to my eyes in remembrance of these profound experiences.
More and more often clients are telling me about an increased ringing in their ears. Some are doing everything they can to get rid of the sound. It is my sense that some of them are beginning to tune into the sounds of the Universe and are becoming Clairaudient. I counsel that they will get used to it. And after the initial strangeness and annoyance, they will begin tuning into the richness of sound that Spirit offers.
If you are beginning to hear different sounds in your ears (or head), take heart and celebrate. This could be the beginning of a wonder-filled and melodious journey.
