Right Ear Ringing Meaning: Exploring The Medical and Supernatural Significance

Randomly hearing something may concern you. Ringing in your ears and being unable to stop may indicate damage to your ears. But you may need to learn that it is also a part of superstitions and cultural beliefs. Though it is not life-threatening, it may cause distraction and annoyance, especially if you only hear it.

From a medical perspective, right ear ringing is not a health condition. Instead, it is a symptom of another medical condition. But when you talk about the spiritual significance, it may tell that someone is talking about you.

Let's look at how ringing of the ears connects to medical and cultural beliefs. We'll also discuss how people experienced it and what it represents psychologically.

Medical Perspectives on Right Ear Ringing​

Ringing in the ears is what medical professionals call "tinnitus." It starts inside the ear, which you can hear on both ears or one side. Some people experience it loud and for extended periods. Many of us find right ear ringing annoying since it is distracting and stressful. However, a more sensitive person may struggle to focus and sleep.

If tinnitus already affects your quality of life, an audiologist can help you manage and treat the ringing sound. An audiologist will look for the cause of tinnitus. If it is a problem with the ears, earwax, infection, or an injury may have caused it. Your audiologist may offer a range of treatments like hearing aids, therapy, or advice for lifestyle changes.

However, you may want to consult an otolaryngologist if the audiologist didn't see any infection or earwax. They are specialists for a more complex hearing issue or if your tinnitus is a symptom of a more severe condition. The otolaryngologist will determine the underlying medical cause and how they will treat it. Aside from earwax and infection, other medical causes of tinnitus are:

  • Eustachian Tube Dysfunction (swelling of the mucosal lining of the tube that runs in the middle ear and throat)
  • Meniere Disease (ear disorder associated with hearing loss and dizziness)
  • Aging
  • TMJ Disorder
  • Acoustic Neuroma
  • Allergies
  • Otosclerosis

Some people experience tinnitus but do not recognize that they are also experiencing hearing loss. If you experience trouble hearing high frequencies in your right ear, you will most likely experience high-pitch right ear ringing. Usually, frequently hearing loud noises cause this, damaging the inner ear's hair cells, leading to hearing loss.

Cultural Beliefs and Right Ear Ringing​

Different beliefs surround right ear ringing. Depending on the superstition and culture, it may mean something about the angels talking, Chakra, a bad omen, or someone talking about you. These myths have originated from the ancient years. Though these are considered myths, you are more welcome to believe in them depending on your culture.

Old Wives' Tale​

The most common superstition about right ear ringing is that someone talks about you positively. It can be your friend, family, or someone you cherish. These people talk about you because you have the characteristics that people like quickly, and you put their needs first before yours. Sometimes, the intensity of the tone may also mean if they talk about you positively or negatively.

Roman Culture​

Pliny the Elder brought the right ear ringing in Romans. In the Roman Empire, anything that the body experience represents an omen. According to his encyclopedia "Natural History," if you hear a ringing sound in your right ear, the angels are probably talking about you. People believe that the angels try to pass on a message from heaven.

Chinese Culture​

The meaning of right ear ringing in Chinese culture is more detailed. You must note when you heard the ringing to know the exact meaning. If you listen to it at midnight, it means you will lose money in a few days.

If from 1 am to 3 am, you will most likely enter an argument with someone. If from 3 am to 5 am, you may experience a last-minute occurrence. If from 5 am to 9 am, someone will visit you within the day. If from 9 am to 11 am, it means you can expect good luck. If from 11 am to 3 pm, a close relative or a friend will come to see you. From 3 pm to 7 pm, it can mean a happy event or good luck. If from 7 pm to 9 pm, you can expect a friend to visit you. If from 9 pm to 11 pm, you will have good luck.


The cultural beliefs of Hindus about right ear ringing is about Chakra. It means they will receive spiritual messages from the divine realm. The right ear ringing means their intuition and abilities awaken for spiritual traditions. This sound means they are sensitive to spiritual energies around them.


Though not all Catholics believe in the right ear superstition, some believe something good will happen when they hear the ringing sound. It may be about receiving prosperity, good luck, or good news. It tells them to practice gratitude since things will change for the better. If you are going through life difficulties, hearing a high-pitched ringing sound is a sign to manifest positivity.

Psychological Interpretations of Right Ear Ringing​

Right ear hearing may mean paying attention to your psychological health. It may represent anxiety, stress, or emotions. According to a study, people who experience tinnitus complain about emotional difficulties, hindrances in social interaction, and insomnia. Because of this, they experience depression and sleep deprivation.

Around 30% to 40% of Americans that experience tinnitus are most likely distressed and have a poor quality of life. The physical sensations that tinnitus brings are high levels of stress that lead to emotional turbulence. The fact that tinnitus may lead to loss of hearing also makes them overthink, which worsens their mental illness.

Individuals with tinnitus also find concentration, memory, and cognitive functioning difficulties. This background noise often distracts them, making it hard for them to work on tasks requiring mental attention. Because of this, these individuals feel frustrated, and their productivity decreases. The impact of tinnitus in doing daily activities may affect an individual's mood or overall emotional well-being.

Personal Experience and Anecdotes​

Barbra Streisand is just one of the celebrities who experienced tinnitus. According to the actress, she has had it since she was nine. Barbra was unsure if it was a symptom of an underlying condition or a problem with her ears. She experienced sudden ringing in her ears while in school. Barbra got it treated when she became an adult and sought help from an audiologist.

Coldplay's lead songwriter Chris Martin also had tinnitus for ten years. He believed he got it from listening to loud volumes since he always listened to loud music during his teenage years. According to Chris, teenagers should avoid making the same mistake as him if they don't want to experience tinnitus.

Ayumi Hamasaki is one of the celebrities who experienced the worst tinnitus effects. As a recording artist, her hearing is the last thing she expected to worsen. In 2008, Ayumi announced that she lost her hearing in the left ear, which she thought was caused by tinnitus. In 2017, she said she was also starting to lose hearing in her right ear. Despite her hearing problems, she remained to perform for her fans.

Superstition and Right Ear Ringing​

Aside from cultural beliefs, right ear ringing is associated with psychic abilities. Some believe it is a sign that their intuition is inviting them to explore their psychic potential. According to them, the right ear is more receptive to energies and can only hear the ringing sound that represents energies.

Psychics often interpret high-pitch ringing as a sign that a spiritual being is coming to connect with your crown chakra. The low-pitched ringing warns you that lower-vibrational beings are coming to your lower Chakra, which may bring you stress and anxiety.

Sound patterns also have meanings that you should take note of. A buzzing noise is a sign that you are getting attached to someone, whether it is a romantic or an emotional attachment. On the other hand, sudden and loud ringing is a way for the angels to get your attention. It may come as a warning since it comes from your spirit guides.


Tinnitus is an annoying experience, especially if you need to work using your focus and concentration. You can feel it in both ears, but hearing in the right ear is more common. Sometimes, it is caused by hearing or inner ear problems, but it may also be a symptom of a severe health condition. However, some people take the right ear ringing as a spiritual sign or a part of their cultural belief. To know the meaning of this, you need to take note of the ringing pattern, the time you experienced it, and the intensity of the ringing.

Frequently Asked Questions​

Is bad luck also associated with the right ear ringing?​
