Ear problems get our attention for a physical reason and a metaphysical reason.
The physical reasons may include a host of causative factors from excess ear wax buildup to excess mucus or waste matter of a liquid nature in the brain that press against ear nerve endings.
Common ear problems include:
- Ear infections
- Swimmer’s ear
- Ear wax build up
- Ringing in the ears
- Dizziness or vertigo
- Hearing problems
Causes and Risk Factors
Ear infections are generally caused by an excessive build up of fluid behind the ear drum, usually as a result of cold, flu, respiratory infection or allergy.
Swimmer’s ear is a bacterial infection caused by water getting trapped in the ear canal. It can be aggravated by excessive or aggressive cleaning of the ears with cotton swabs, bobby pins, match sticks or other devices. A good rule is to never put anything smaller than your pinky-finger in your ear.
Ear wax is natural, and promotes a healthy ear system. Excess ear wax is not healthy and can cause a host of other problems.
Tinnitus, or ringing of the ears, can be caused by a number of reasons. One of the more modern causes is exposure to excessive noise such as digital sound, loud volume funneled through headsets on mp3 players, high-volume music concerts, or exposure to sirens blaring on emergency vehicles. Even something as innocent as church bells ringing, a child crying or the sounds of cars or motorcycles can cause tinnitus.
Vertigo is an inner ear problem that causes someone to struggle to keep his or her physical balance. It’s most commonly associated with those who experience sea-sickness or motion sickness, but in reality, anyone can experience vertigo if the circumstances are right.
Healing Ear Problems Naturally
Ear Coning and Candling
Ear coning/candling is an ancient craft that was practiced by the ancient Egyptians (People of Khem/Khemet); Mayans, Chaldeans, Druids, et al.
If you have never had ear coning performed, you don’t have a clue of how much wax you actually have in your ear and also the degree of harm this wax is doing or can do. Excess ear wax can actually prevent the depth of your hearing.
The ear coning process works via heat osmosis. The smoke from the cone goes deep into the ear canal and melts wax, liquefying it and sucking it up into the cone whereby it dries and hardens.
Always wait at least 48 hours before the next session so the natural ear secretions can return to the ear. For a really good ear candling session, put some good ear oil in your ears overnight (plugging the ears up with cotton as you sleep).
And by all means, avoid using Q-tips for purposes of ear cleansing. Q-tips will do more harm than good as a Q-tip will push ear debris (such as wax) further into the ear.
Putting ear oil in your ear overnight from time to time is also helpful for the ears.
A good ear oil should contain Olive Oil, garlic (and or onion), herbs of Mullein (leaves and flower), Echinacea, and/or Goldenseal; essential oils of Rosalina, Tea Tree, Manuka, Ravensare, Kanuka, and Leleshwa; and crystals of Amber, Orange Calcite, Opal Aura Quartz, Obsidian, Celestite, and Rhodonite.
From time to time, insert Quartz (or Opal Aura Quartz) crystal sticks (with points), i.e. little thin wands, into your ears for about 15-30 minutes. This process helps balance the ear chakras and enhance the ability of spiritual hearing for purposes of spiritual understanding. There’s a physical hearing and a spiritual hearing. This is why the Biblical character Jesus said: “…because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.” Matthew 13:13
Oxygen & Ozone
If you have an ozone machine, you can insert the hose into the ear canal and let ozone ooze into the ear canal for about 15-30 seconds. You can do this daily or every 2-3 days as you like.
