What’s that Ringing in my Ears?

What’s That Ringing in My Ears?

Aum/Amen
On the Forum, We’ve been discussing what the ringing in our ears is.

I’d like to bring forward the best of earlier discussions of the subject (and there have been many) to help answer it for anyone else with the same question.

I find the discussion very interesting. It’s an exercise in putting together a puzzle of much complexity and great importance to cross-cultural spiritual scholars.

I’ve been hearing the ringing sound in my ears ever since I can remember.

Many people who hear it worry that they have tinnitus. Wikipedia defines tinnitus as:

Tinnitus is the hearing of sound when no external sound is present. [1] While often described as a ringing, it may also sound like a clicking, hiss or roaring.[2] Rarely, unclear voices or music are heard.[3] The sound may be soft or loud, low pitched or high pitched and appear to be coming from one ear or both.[2] Most of the time, it comes on gradually.[3] In some people, the sound causes depression or anxiety and can interfere with concentration.[2]

In the course of studying terrestrial sages on enlightenment, I came across explanations which identified the ringing – which in most case is not actually tinnitus – as the sound of the cosmic motor, Aum, the universal creative vibration, the music of the spheres.

Let me first establish the ringing’s identity with Aum, an aspect of the Mother, and then look at what effect it has.

Paramahansa Yogananda went into most detail on Aum/Amen, the creative universal vibration, in his series, The Second Coming of Christ. He identified it with God here, and with the Holy Spirit or Divine Mother later, as we shall see:

“God is the Word or Om or Holy Ghost or Cosmic Vibration or Cosmic Energy. God is Cosmic Sound resulting from the Cosmic Energy and Cosmic Vibration. God’s first manifestation is the Word or Intelligent Cosmic Vibrating Sound.” (1)

“This Amen is the faithful witness in the beginning of creation — that is, all vibrating creation is accompanied by the Cosmic Sound of Amen or Om or the Word or Holy Ghost, which is the first vibrating manifestation of God.” (2)

Listening to this sound in meditation is one pathway to Self-Realization, Yogananda tells us:

“[One] hears the sound of Holy Ghost [Aum] when all bodily and astral sounds cease. Then, by deeper meditation on this sound, by higher processes learned from the Guru, he can be one with the sound and ‘touch’ it.

“Then, after touching or feeling it, by still higher methods, the spiritual aspirant will find his consciousness vibrating simultaneously in his body and in several continents. As he progresses further by deeper and longer meditation, he will find his consciousness vibrating simultaneously in his body, in the earth, the planets, the universes, and in every particle of matter.” (3)

On another occasion, he said:

“When the Yogi … listens to cosmic vibration, his mind is diverted from the physical sounds of matter outside his body to the circulatory sounds of the vibrating flesh. Then his consciousness is diverted from the vibrations of the body to the musical vibrations of the astral body.

“Then his consciousness wanders from the vibrations of the astral body to the vibrations of consciousness in all atoms. Then the consciousness of the Yogi listens to the Holy Ghost or Cosmic Sound emanating from all atoms.

“This is the way the ordinary consciousness should be baptized or expanded into Christ consciousness through the expanding power of the Holy Ghost, or the all-spreading ‘Aum-vibrating-sound’ heard in meditation.” (4)

Another sage, the avatar Sri Ramakrishna, illustrated how devotees could use it as a pathway to union with God. He called it the “Sound Brahman [God].” He taught his disciple, Swami Brahmananda, to meditate upon it:

“One day, in the course of his teaching, Sri Ramakrishna spoke about the manifestation of Brahman as sound — the Logos. later, when I sat for meditation I took this as my subject, and it was not long before the sound Brahman was revealed to me.” (5)

Some time ago now, I took the various relationships I could find and determined to find their relationship.

What I found was that Aum had components which correspond to the three cosmic forces or gunas of Hinduism – Rajas (Brahma, creation), Sattwa (Vishnu, preservation), and Thamas (Shiva, transformation).

Sages equate them with Aum, which breaks down into Akar (inbreath, creation, rajas, Brahma), Ukar (pause, preservation, sattwa, Vishnu), and Makar (outbreath, transformation, thamas, Shiva).

Here the Divine Mother explicitly confirms that she is Aum, the voice of One crying in the wilderness of the Third Dimension:

Steve Beckow: Mother, you’re also known as the Word of God, Aum, the voice of one crying in the wilderness, and the noise of many waters. …

Divine Mother: Yes, I am … the voice crying in the wilderness. (6)

I asked the Divine Mother to confirm for me some of these equivalencies but forgot to go into detail on the constituencies of Aum:

Steve: [Are] the gunas, the cosmic forces which are called rajas, sattwa, and tamas, … the same as the Trimurthy [Triad] of Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva?

Divine Mother: Yes. We are the same as that triad.

SB: All right. And the Trimurthy of Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva is a subset of the Universal Creative Vibration [Aum] that you are at your essence. Is that correct?

DM: That is correct. (6)

So we have part of the puzzle. But without the specifics of Aum.

I had the opportunity to ask Archangel Michael to confirm the specific equivalencies of Aum for me in early 2020:

Steve: I’ve read part of this quote to the Divine Mother. She’s verified it but I’ve added things to it. So I’d like to read it to you again and ask if it is correct.

Creation, preservation, transformation = rajas, sattwa, and thamas = Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva = Akar, Ukar & Makar of AUM.

AAM: That is quite the expression, Sweet One, and in that tradition and in that understanding, the answer is correct. (7)

Yes, I’ve been working on it for decades! Some people build rockets to the moon (or Mars) and I complete jigsaw puzzles.

Now let’s move from the general to the particular. How does Aum manifest in our particular lives as lightworkers building Nova Earth?

In the Jan. 23, 2012 radio program, An Hour with an Angel, Archangel Michael made the following comment:

“Oh, do not think that you cannot hear the sound of your collective or of your planet! You are always hearing the sound of the universe, that high-pitched ringing in your ears.” (8)

He touched on the matter when discussing how he makes his presence known. I asked him in 2013 if he signalled his presence with a high-pitched ringing in the ears.

Steve: Is a loud, high-pitched ringing the sign of an overlighting presence?

Archangel Michael: Yes.

S: Oh, I thought that was the sound of the cosmic motor [Aum, the Divine Mother, the Word of God].

AAM: It is the cosmic motor but it is the cosmic motor tapping you on the shoulder and saying “We’re here.” (9)

We had a similar discussion on another occasion:

Archangel Michael: When you wish for inspiration, go quiet. Yes, you will hear the ringing again and again and again. And simply listen. And allow.

Steve: The ringing. Is it at base the Mother? Is it at base the universal creative vibration?

AAM: There are two ringings that you perceive, and one, yes, is the universe. And the universal tone, as it were. But there is a higher pitch that I tend to come in on. (10)

Well, I hear that ringing all the time. Does it mean Archangel Michael is there all the time?

Steve: How do I know when you are whispering in my ear?

Archangel Michael: Often it is prefaced by a high pitched ring.

Steve: Oh, I hear that all the time.

AAM: Yes, I know.

Steve: [laughing] Are you here all the time?

AAM: Yes, I am. (11)

So our guides, who may never have been handed a more important assignment than this first mass/physical Ascension, are with us in our work and make their presence known by the ringing in our ears.

So you’re not losing your hearing, risking dementia, or going insane. You’re hearing your particular angel making his or her presence known.

As you see, according to the sages, hearing this is a great blessing. But, for the purposes of lightworkers building a new world, it’s a signal of the presence of our guides here to inspire and help us in our very important work.

(2) Loc. cit.

(3) Ibid., 17. The Mother is the Holy Ghost – or Holy Spirit. “Spiritus” equals “breath.” Breath is composed of an inbreath, pause, and outbreath. These are equivalent to creation, preservation, and transformation – which are equivalent to the three gunas of rajas (creation, Brahma), sattwa (preservation, Vishnu) and thamas (transformation, Shiva).

Hindus equate this with Aum, which breaks down into Akar (inbreath, creation, rajas, Brahma), Ukar (pause, preservation, sattwa, Vishnu), and Makar (outbreath, transformation, thamas, Shiva).

The equivalent for Western civilizations is the Amen, as in Jesus’ statement: “These things saith the Amen.” (John 1:1-2.)

(4) Ibid., 20-1.

(5) Swami Brahmananda in Swami Prabhavananda, The Eternal Companion. Brahmananda. Hollywood: Vedanta Press, 1970; c1944, 1895

The gunas may not be known to other traditions, but other traditions know Aum. For instance, Jesus knew it:

“He that hath an ear, let him hear what the [Holy] Spirit saith unto the churches…. These things saith the Amen [Aum], the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God.” (5)

Solomon knew the Mother as “Wisdom, who cried and those who hearkened to her are blessed:

“Doth not wisdom cry…

“The Lord possessed me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old.

“I was set up from everlasting [that is, before time], from the beginning, or ever the earth was.

“When there were no depths, I was brought forth; when there were no fountains abounding with water. …

“While as yet he had not made the earth, nor the fields, nor the highest part of the dust of the world.

“When he prepared the heavens, I was there: when he set a compass on the face of the depth.

“When he established the clouds above: when he strengthened the fountains of the deep.

“When he gave to the sea his decree, that the waters should not pass his commandment: when he appointed the foundations of the earth.

“Then I was by him, as one brought up with him: and I was daily his delight, rejoicing always before him. …

“Now therefore hearken unto me, O ye children: for blessed are they that keep my ways.” (Proverbs, 8:1, 22-4, 26-30, and 32.) [My emphasis.]

The ascended master Hilarion, through Mabel Collins, described Aum/Amen:

“Look for it and listen to it first in your own heart. At first you may say: ‘It is not there; when I search I find only discord.’ Look deeper.

“If again you are disappointed, pause and look deeper again. There is a natural melody, an obscure fount in every human heart. It may be hidden over and utterly concealed and silenced — but it is there.” (Ascended Master Hilarion, channelling through Mabel Collins, channel. Light on the Path and an Essay on Karma. Wheaton, IL: Theosophical Publishing House, 1974, 24-5.)

Here is Theosophist Annie Besant on it:

“The source from which a universe proceeds is a manifested Divine Being, to whom in the modern form of the Ancient Wisdom the name of Logos, or Word, has been given. The name is drawn from Greek philosophy, but perfectly expresses the ancient ideas, the Word which emerges from the Silence, the Voice, the Sound, by which the worlds come into being. “(Annie Besant, The Ancient Wisdom. Adyar: Theosophical Publishing House, 1972; c1897, 44.)

Now yogi Swami Satyeswarananda:

“‘The Word was God’ means the sound was God. This Sound is the Inner Sound OM, AUM, Amen.” (Swami Satyeswarananda Giri, Lahiri Mahasay. The Father of Kriya Yoga. San Diego: Sanskrit Classics, 1983, 2.)

Live from Mount Shasta Celestial Gateway

Live from the Mount Shasta Celestial Gateway

Print Friendly, PDF & Email


THE RITE OF MATRIX SHIFT

 

HELD WITHIN THE PHENOMENAL BACKDROP OF ONE
OF THE MOST SACRED PLACES ON EARTH

 

 

This Sunday, August 4

 

Registration

 

This transmission is transmitting live from the exquisite Mount Shasta crystalline field, which radiates the comic vibratory force for the entire planet.

It is facilitated through Tiara Kumara and her group of 24 initiates who have endured a 10-day vibrational experience in the splendorous Mount Shasta light.

As a result of this highly transforming initiation, they are transferring their self actualized encodements.

 

THIS INITIATION IS SUPPORTED BY

THE MOUNT SHASTA ASCENSION SEAT

 

Mount Shasta is truly a phenomena, revered by spiritual seekers around the world as a supernatural entity and celestial gateway.

She delivers a powerful Rite of Passage to all who enter her godly radiance.

Located in northern California, this holy mountain is a massive volcano and is surrounded by five glaciers that hold it in place. It emits such a strong energy pattern that satellite photos show an atmospheric hole over its peak.

Its strong geophysical forces contribute to its reputation as a portal-vortex complex. It serves as a major nodal point of the planetary Crystalline Grid and is a major hub of multidimensional, interstellar activity.

THE EXQUISITE CRYSTALLINE RESONANCE

The mountain is saturated with transforming crystalline energy… in the waters, throughout the land and gridlines, and within its etheric space.

Many lightworkers speak about one of the great Atlantean crystals that lies within a deep crystalline cavern below Mt. Shasta, supposedly a crystal of Arcturian origin.

This massive crystal is known as the “OM Crystal of Multidimensionality”. It is reactivated in full strength to once again support and accelerate the evolving human nature.

A UFO HOTSPOT

Mount Shasta is described as an inter-planetary and inter-galactic portal, known to give access to multi dimensions and frequencies.

There is untold documentation of UFO sightings and testimony from the numerous visitors, including yours truly, who have witnessed craft entering and leaving this holy abode.

Some people have even reported making contact with extraterrestrial beings. One explanation is that there are spacecrafts coming and going constantly from a spaceport deep within the mountain.

It is widely reported that several tunnels stretch far into the interior of this majestic mountain. Lenticular clouds, shadows and outstanding sunsets add to the mystical aura of Mount Shasta.

TELOS, THE SUBTERRANEAN CITY OF LIGHT

The legend says that when the ancient civilization of Lemuria was sinking, some of the Lemurians transported themselves as light beings to Mount Shasta and took up residence under the mountain, in the City of Telos. They have become an ascended civilization living in a fifth dimensional vibration and consciousness.

These immortals can teleport, communicate through telepathy and are extremely advanced technologically. They are commonly described as graceful and tall, up to seven feet.

THE ASCENDED MASTER CONSCIOUSNESS FIELD

As part of our great One Self, the consciousness of the Ascended Masters is very prevalent in Mount Shasta and is a great inspiration to those who are on the path of spiritual initiation.

This masterful presence of light radiation comes to us as a unified field to support our group initiation and expansive intentions.

(Ascended Masters are enlightened beings who, like ourselves, have risen from the struggles of human incarnation. Through initiation, they mastered the limitation of the material world and ascended into the realms of light.)

ELMENTALS, NATURE SPIRITS & INTERDIMENSIONAL BEINGS

The Mount Shasta area is an elemental cathedral of tantalizing light, sound and vibration.

Elves and fairies are quite common. Wondrous miniature beings, often referred to as “The Little People”, appear semi-physical and are often seen around the mountain.

There are also reports of the Sasquatch (Big Foot) being seen, heard or smelled in remote areas, along with many other mysterious beings.

NATIVE AMERICAN FOOTPRINT

This mysterious mountain shows up in a lot of Native American myths and stories. The tribes perceived this mountain to hold the power of God.

It has been considered to be so sacred that, out of respect, the native people would not live on the actual mountain. It is a place reserved by them for important ceremonies.

Many people who visit Mount Shasta have a profound, spiritual experience. Often seekers will receive clarifying messages, healings, guidance, and a wonderful sense of renewal from this powerful portal location.

We hope you will too!

MOUNT SHASTA AND RECEIVE THE RITE OF MATRIX SHIFT!

The Role of the Celestials in our Enlightenment

The Role of the Celestials in Our Enlightenment – Part 2/2

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

(Concluded from Part 1, yesterday.)

Let me now give you three examples of celestial mediation in my own spiritual experiences.

These were generally toned down so that I would remain in service as a communicator, staying in synch with my readers.

It isn’t the fact that they were toned down that I’m pointing at; it’s the role played by the Divine Mother and the archangels in the experience itself.

The first example occurred when I saw the Light of the Self at Xenia Retreat Center on Sept. 18, 2018. The Light was more luminescent than brilliant, which seemed strange.

I later asked the Mother if she had truncated it and she replied that she definitely did.

Steve: The experience at Xenia, Mother, was that truncated?

Divine Mother: Slightly, yes.

Steve: I had the thought [it was]. … The Light I saw should have been brighter than a thousand suns.  The fact that it wasn’t suggests to me that the experience was truncated.  …

DM: It was not as brilliant as possible, let us put it that way.

Steve: Alright… And again, the reason is to keep me in sync with my readers?

DM: It is to keep you in sync with your readers…

But let me be very clear about that. If you had seen the light as it actually is, yes, a million, billion suns … you would have simply departed. …

 We don’t mean die but you would have departed the life that you have designed – yes, with us, for yourself, for the service you are providing – you would have departed and simply said, “I do not need to do this. I will just simply sit in the bliss of love and good luck, everybody!” (1)

I’d have ‘left for the Himalayas’ to finish the job.  And that was not in my soul contract. My contract is to be a communicator; i.e., a writer. So here I stay and I go up with everyone else at the same pace.

A second example is what should have been an experience of seventh-chakra enlightenment, or Brahmajnana, but it lacked the experience of bliss.

I saw, felt, and heard the golden river of the kundalini rocket past me one day. It mentally and emotionally bowled me over. I watched it pass over top of me and enter at the Sahasrara or seventh chakra. Ordinarily, that would have been seventh-chakra enlightenment.

But there was no bliss and so it may as well have been a movie film I was watching.

Bliss is like the rocket fuel that propels us into the upper atmosphere at which heights realization becomes possible. It uplifts us.

I discussed the truncation with Archangel Michael:

Steve: Ordinarily you would experience Brahmajnana at that point but I felt that it had been muted, toned down.

AAM: Completely toned down. We want you very physically present.

When you use the term “dramatic enlightenment experiences,” you are talking about Nirvana. (2) You are talking about the unity of all with One.

It is not to say that you will not experience that, but you cannot ― well, you can if you wish; it is your choice to simply remain in that state of unity, of One ― or be fully conscious and in service, in action, if that is where you are.

So, it is a toning down, if anything. It really is the middle ground. It is the intersection. It is the place where the third is not a memory, but it is not a burden. And you see the clarity of the old dis-illusions, and you see with clarity the sense of Oneness.

You know that enlightenment is right there in front of you. It is yours to access. But if you are in service, you will not choose to live there. …

You can think of it as keeping two feet firmly on the ground. (3)

Totally fine with me.

A third example of truncation is an experience of the Oversoul that I had at a Vipassana meditation retreat. The Oversoul is, according to the Arcturians, a seventh-dimensional construct. (4) So not seventh-chakra, but seventh-dimensional.

There I was amid a hive of activity, all happening around me while I remained still. And it was arising out of me somehow, without me saying a word. I suppose telepathy is the best word for it. But I wasn’t even projecting thoughts. My mind was still.

This experience was truncated insofar as there was no bliss. I still enjoyed being a person who acted without acting, thought without thinking, travelled without travelling.

It was a tremendously memorable experience but Michael told me that it was also toned down.

In other words, enlightenment is not solely due to us and our efforts. The celestials and the Divine Mother herself play a determining role in our enlightenment experiences.

The celestials are the ones who are monitoring us and estimating when is a good time for an experience. Several times Michael has said that something happened – some experience – because it was the right time or a good time for it.

If you wish to hear an archangel telling his servant what factors entered into his causing a fourth-chakra enlightenment experience, I’ll put that quote in footnote 5 so as not to make this article overly-long.

I request that, cross-culturally, we update the file on enightenment to include the role of the celestials and the Divine Mother in the multidimensional process that our unfolding enlightenment is.

And I request everyone to realize that they’re working with their celestial guides so ask for what you want. They will not violate your free will, but ask and ye shall receive.

(2) When I think of “nirvana,” I equate it with the Fifth Dimension. But Matthew Ward equates it with the afterlife world.  I’m sure there are many more interpretations of it out there. However it is at least higher-dimensional.

(3) Archangel Michael in a personal reading with Steve Beckow through Linda Dillon, Feb. 14, 2012.

(4) All bodies are of course constructs, including the Soul or Self. Only the One is real. Everything else merges again in the One. Here is a discussion with AAM of that experiende:

Steve: I had an experience at a meditation workshop in which I felt regal. It was a partial experience. Can you tell me what that part of me was I accessed.

AAM: Your highest Self, your oversoul, is very regal.

So that was an experience of the Oversoul.

Yes.

Steve: That does help me to know that. (Archangel Michael in a personal reading, ibid., Sept. 13, 2011.)

Sue Lie: The Seventh [Dimension] is your oversoul. (Sue Lie and the Arcturians in a personal reading with Steve Beckow, March 17, 2013.)

The part that … many would call an oversoul [is the part] that would remain in the Source energy. (AAM in a personal reading, ibid., Oct. 11, 2011.)

(5) Archangel Michael: Yes, your heart is open. The opening is, and will, and shall continue.

Steve: You mean permanently, Lord, really?

AAM: Yes

S: Oh my! Please!

AAM: Because, you have said yes! …

This occurs, not merely because you have asked for it, but because you (and this does apply to the collective) have done your, can we say, your homework, your due diligence.  [Eradicating vasanas.]  What we mean by this is simply, think of it in spatial reality, time and space: you have created the space for this [energy of love] to, not only pass by you like a passing breeze or a rain, but to anchor within you because there is a sense of this spaciousness within thee. …

When one is clinging to core issues, to fear, to lack, to limitation – you know the list – there is not that sense, not only of spaciousness, but of acceptance, allowance, readiness and even permission. Because as you know, we continually say that we will never override your free will.

So, if the will, either actively or subconsciously, is actually choosing to still engage in the issues or the drama, then although we are standing at readiness and still penetrating you, that open door is not there.

S: So, the open door was there with me?

AAM: That is correct.

S: Did the exercise of bringing love up from my heart and sending it out through my third eye to the world play a role at all in this?

AAM: Yes, it did.

S: Could you talk about that for just a bit, please?

AAM: One of the strongest or the ultimate expressions of love, of willingness to not only participate in love but to be the love, is in the sharing. To say that you are love, or are loved, or you love this, that, someone… but [then] you keep it within you, you hoard it – and we do not necessarily mean that in a negative way – sometimes the feeling is so blissful you do not wish to actually take the next step quite yet, in terms of sharing.

The ultimate experience is in this sharing. This is what we speak of when we speak of sacred union and partnership. How can you possibly be in any form of partnership with humanity, with the Star-beings, with us, with any being, if you are not sharing.

So what you do when you bring the love up and out, when you begin to send, to share; it is as if you have in fact activated what we call the wellspring. The visual you may think of is the volcano.

It is not that you empty out. It is that you discover that that wellspring is SO full and overflowing that it is a steady stream. That steady stream does not ever, ever (think of what I say!)… it never has to cease! (AAM in a personal reading, ibid., March 13, 2015.)
