What is the meaning behind your left ear ringing?
We are spiritual beings with physical bodies and expressions.
Our bodies are only a container housing our authentic selves: our spirits.
Our bodies receive spiritual signals from spiritual realms. But often cannot make meaning of these signs and messages because we have not sharpened our spiritual senses enough, or our physical selves and sense organs have only been trained to receive and understand physical things.
That is why we do not know when we receive spiritual signs and messages. And even when we receive them, we tend to interpret them as everyday physical phenomena.
One of these spiritual signs is ringing in the left ear.
To some people, this is a common occurrence in their lives, while others experience it occasionally. But one common reaction to it is that many people believe it to be a medical condition called tinnitus, a situation where you experience ringing or other noises in one or both of your ears.
Although this is true sometimes, that is not always the case.
If you are healthy or you’ve done medical examinations and the ringing in your left ear has no medical root, then it’s time for you to pay attention to your spiritual self and try to connect to your guardian angel to understand what message they are transmitting.
Doing this might be challenging, but there’s always a starting point.
Using biblical references, this article will help you understand the meanings behind the ringing or sound you hear in your left ear.
The Biblical Meanings of Left Ear Ringing:
A call to hear and obey God
“So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” (Romans 10:17)
First, you must understand that the Bible emphasizes the need to hear God’s Word, as that is one of the primary purposes of our ears.
God wants us to keenly open our inner ears and allow His words to freely flow into our spirits, work on our minds and transform our lives.
That is why verses such as Luke 8:8, Matthew 11:15, and Mark 4:9 always have the phrase, “He who has ears to hear, let him hear!” in them.
However, Job 13:17 expressly mentions the ringing of the ears. “Listen carefully to what I say; let my words ring in your ears.”
Here, ringing in the ear suggests the acceptance and remembrance of God’s words to obey and live according to them.
Therefore, ringing in your left ear is a call to remember and obey God’s Word so your lifestyle will preach the Gospel of Christ and attract people to God.
You’re a channel through which God reaches out to people. So God utilizes your ability to open your ear and connect to Him to reflect His power, grace, and love to the world.
A call to pay attention
“My son, give attention to my words; Incline your ear to my sayings.” (Proverbs 4:20)
We live in a noisy world where distractions are all around us.
Our minds are clouded with thoughts and voices from the social and mainstream media.
We are constantly drawn away by the daily hustle and bustle and never connect with God and His purpose.
We are busy chasing our dreams and money to the detriment of our spiritual well-being.
Because most of us have fallen deeply into this toxic way of life, God uses the ringing of the left ear to draw our attention to Him and what He is saying.
As such, your left ear ringing is a call to you to pay attention to what matters in your life.
Sometimes, what you need to pay attention to is your loved ones or health. When this sound rings, step on the break and reflect on your life.
People are talking about you.
People always talk about others behind their backs.
While it is nothing to worry about, what is being discussed might damage your reputation.
That is why you must be careful about the people you call your friend, hang out with, or share personal information with.
Your left ear ringing is a sign that what they are talking about you is negative.
People you know are gossiping about you, and you need to take reasonable steps like reevaluating the kind of people in your circle of influence, watching people’s reactions when you share the good news, and the kind of jokes they say about you.
The ringing in your left ear is a warning to you to stay alert for changes that might be drastic and life-changing.
These changes are primarily negative. It could be an accident, a heartbreak, disappointment, job termination, etc.
Your left ear ringing is not for you to panic but to prepare and possibly avert the danger coming.
You might begin to look at examining your decisions and lifestyle.
Do you keep late nights?
Do you take harmful substances?
Do you drive carelessly?
Do you take your work with levity?
Ask yourself these questions and make amends where needed.
Most importantly, ask God to keep and protect you.
Help Him to reveal His purpose even when something terrible happens because not all evil is meant to crush us.
Some are permitted by God to shape us into better versions of ourselves and prepare us for a glorious journey and height He is leading us to.
You’re harboring negative energy.
Your left ear often rings because you holding too much negative energy in your heart.
You might start letting go of anger, pain, envy, and jealousy because they harm you.
Your guardian angels are calling you toward a healing journey where you detox your mind of all negativity so you can have space for positive energy and calmness.
You cannot function optimally or tap into the full potential of your creative energy if you are harboring negativity in yourself.
You can also not receive divine instructions and ideas if negative forces have clogged your spiritual channel.
Therefore, you must deliberately start practicing forgiveness and letting go so your pains can heal and you can become whole again.
Another meaning of your left ear ringing here is a sign of imbalance inner energy.
Your inner energy has been polluted, so you need to refine it.
You might want to watch your associations, the information you absorb through your senses, and where you spend your time to identify the root cause of the mixed energy.
Once you’ve identified them, cut them off and dedicate yourself to spiritual cleansing.
Your left ear ringing is a sign of spiritual awakening.
You are undergoing spiritual growth that will make you connect to your spiritual powers and unleash them.
This is a sign that you are spiritually blessed and endowed to connect both the physical and spiritual worlds.
Everyone does not have this ability.
So, you are a part of the rare few.
Therefore, you must be aware of your gifts and talents.
You must search them diligently to maximize them for God’s work and your progress.
Pay attention to this sign if you have been searching for your purpose and want to achieve your spiritual destiny.

It means spiritual messages are being communicated to you that you must pay attention to.
It shows that you have a sensitive inner ear that can receive and decode deep messages, but you are yet to tap into that potential.

Pray and meditate.
You must ask God to open your ears so you can hear Him when He speaks.
You can also ask Him to fill you with His Holy Spirit.
Having the Holy Spirit within you makes listening easier because He whispers to your spirit.
You must understand prompt obedience and faith.
Prompt obedience because the Holy Spirit would not force you to do what He is saying, and faith because you might receive odd and illogical instructions.
Once you’re convinced that what you receive is not from your mind but God’s Spirit, obey, and you will enjoy the reward.
When meditating, focus your mind on heaven and open your ears to what God is saying.
Let God’s Word flow in your spirit so you can grab the promise that resonates with your situation at that particular time.

This sign follows multiple warnings about your act of disobedience you’ve ignored.
Your ringing left ear might be the last warning you will get to repent.
Failure to repent might lead to God’s judgment.
God is kind and slow to anger. However, we must not take His grace for granted.
We must not see His patience as an avenue for us to sin willfully.
Therefore, observe your life to see where you have been failing God continuously and repent once and for all.
