Within two days of returning to Queensland at Easter after fracturing my ankle, my left ear blocked. The cause? I don’t visit doctors unless absolutely necessary so I assumed it was blocked with wax. It wasn’t sore, I hadn’t had any recent colds, and only swam once in the last few months.
This is very unusual for me – I don’t have troublesome ears. Actually, my left ear was the one I felt was facilitating the development of Clairaudience. There are a number of different ways you can experience your psychic development – your spiritual connection. Everyone has these abilities – we are all spiritual beings having a physical experience. It all depends on whether you are open to this or not. Your choice, free will and all that.
As an overview, there are 4 main ways of developing your intuition connection – you might refer to it as a gut reaction, instinct, foresight or a certain knowingness. The ‘clair senses’ are types of psychic abilities that correspond with the five senses. Clairvoyant means seeing – may be experienced as visions much like a daydream… Clairaudience means hearing – may hear words, sounds or music in our own mind’s voice… Clairsentience means feeling – eg having a strong “gut” feeling about someone we just met or get the “chills” for no reason… Claircognizance means knowing – when we just know something about people or events that we would not normally have knowledge about eg a premonition
As I explored the language of spirit, I realized that my dominant way of receiving intuitive information was a more auditory experience. I’ve never been great at visualising as hard as I try (get that?) The fascinating thing is I’ve started to recognize spirit energy too such as seeing angel wings on a friend, seeing pulsing energy lines running around inanimate objects, and even what some would call ‘ghosts’.
The more I’ve explored spiritual connection, the more I’ve become aware that my strong pitta mind is a work in progress, letting go of control and ‘having to know’ towards allowing and surrendering. With this has come awareness of which side of my mind, the practical side or the spiritual side, my thoughts are coming from, and then I know which ones are about possible attachment (wanting to make it happen) and which are from divine inspiration. We all connect with spirit in our own unique way.
My personal wellness treatment method usually involves just allowing my body to heal itself and nurturing it with good, healthy food and holistic practices. With my blocked ear, I physically couldn’t get it to unblock. The more I explored ways to unblock the ear such as ear drops, the worse it felt. Is a blocked ear such a big deal? I know it was frustrating for me and for those around me because I was constantly asking them to repeat what they had said, or I was either whispering or yelling at them… It does make me feel like not my usual self, but perhaps if my ear wants to be blocked, I should just let it. Maybe it just needs a rest?
After 2 weeks, I ended up at the GP who wanted to give me antibiotics even though he couldn’t see redness or discharge – no, I didn’t want that, I just wanted to make sure there was nothing foreign blocking my ear cannel. I came to the conclusion that if my ear just wants to be blocked, perhaps I just have to let go of trying to fix everything and just allow it to be.
With no other explanation, I am beginning to think there could be more to it. I believe that our spirit tries to communicate with us through our body, so I looked into other messages that may give insights. When you explore what the ears are for – think of the sayings “someone chewing your ear off” or “lending an ear”. It may be about being sensitive to noises or having spent too much time listening to noise pollution – here I was thrown back into the hustle of urban life after spending weeks in Tassie, surrounded by nature and bush… I jumped on the internet and searched for ‘metaphysical reasons for blocked ear’ and I found a possible cause was ‘fear of hearing what is really going on in your own life or have been criticising yourself or others.’
I then did the Emotion Code process and found the emotion linked to my ear was “Creative Insecurity”. Now – this was not a too left-field idea! “Feeling unsafe or untrusting the self about the creation or development of anything, including relationships, family, health, money, career and/or artistic endeavours. A feeling of insecurity that arises and blocks the creative process.”
This was a bit of a slap. I had been so busy doing other work that I hadn’t been spending time on my program, and it was just waiting for finishing touches before I launched it… but I felt time-poor and stuck on the edge. When you tie this onto my broken ankle there is much to explore! There’s the ‘standing out’ that will come when this thing is ready to fly – fear was keeping me small and contained, but also limited… it’s a no-win when I want to be a role model for the empowerment of women so, it was down to “feel the fear and do it anyway!”
So I stepped into the creative process and started facilitating my program to a selected group of women, sharing my vision which has been well received with positive encouraging feedback.
Where does this leave my ear?
After the next full moon – it opened again.
