Are there spiritual implications to hearing bells no one else hears?

On October 1 2008 I was eating lunch alone and heard bells ringing.The sound was carried on the breeze.The nurse said it may be ringing in the ear but I know what I heard. Another person implied schizophrenia. Another suggested it may have a spiritual meaning.The bell sounded like a tolling[first impression] or an alarm during an emergency or danger.It happened around 1:00- 1:30 p.m. and it reminded me of my Catholic parochial and high school days when we said the Angelus.Anyone know what I am talking about? I suspect I was the subject of a table topic discussion later as a youth approached me and questioned me about the meaning behind someone hearing bells no one else heard. I had mentioned it to several staff members and a Guidance Counselor as well as the nurse. The Guidance Counselor admonished me to be prayer vigilant whenever I reported for work.But, he did not expound the idea or implication. Someone said that in some religions, bells are used to summon spirits.What do you think,especially since no one else claimed to have heard them? The ringing lasted at least five minutes so it could not be ignored.Recently I attended a church service and an ancient clock rang out the time with bells. It was the first time I had heard that clock.Any ideas about the spiritual meaning or implication?

  • I found this post because I was trying to see what my own case ment, but I haven’t found any direct answers (if anyone could help me out here I would fully appreciate it). Last night I stayed awake until very late, at exactly 4am I heard three bell chimes (they sounded like ones you would get on an old fashioned clock or in a church). My dad, who was awake said he heard nothing and there was no alarms set for 4am. My windows were shut and they sounded like they came from outside my door. This isn’t my first experience in this house, maybe I’m making something out of nothing?

  • My mother died December 27. On the 24th I sat by her bedside and I heard bells. My husband said he heard nothing. Since my 2 sisters and my Brother in law has heard them too. I would love to think it was an angel.

  • It’s not tinnitus I’m an Lon and if I were hearing ringing constantly I would say yes it’s tinnitus but I’m not I hear it only once in a while and it’s only one Bell at a time.

  • I was sad I couldn’t sleep because some guy earlier made an ugly comment to me.so I guess I was still down from it so I was still a wake when I heard a bell ring like once.it 2:38am and I heard near my feet or my sister’s feet a beds are right by each other. Idk what means.

  • On several occasions lately I have been walking alone, waking from a dream or with friends and I hear these tiny bells, they are gentle and tinkling, I think of them as fairy bells(Not because I think of them as being rung by fairies!) They at melodious and seem to start off trying to play a tune and then an actual tune appears, when I hear them I am full of pleasure, it really is a joy and I wonder if you should question something that feels so charming and pleasant, but I am only human and I do. I have relatives who have tinnitus and they say that there is no relief from it they say that the noise is like a ringing in their ears not outside like mine and certainly not pleasant, it honestly makes me feel wonderful. If anyone has a similar experience I would love to hear it, especially if they have an idea what it meant for them. Best Wishes Paul

  • Have also recently heard bells ringing.No exspaination made sense. Have always had an open mind. Believe it is very possible( in today’s times) it is a sign of the coming days ahead. 7/19/16. Have the strongest feeling our world as we know it is about to change drastically. Yet I am not afriad. Believe all will be well for all those who believe in God and have goodness in their hearts. Of course I could elaborate more. Just don’t want to write a book here.

  • If I were reading Peter Pan then there might have been an explanation for what I heard.
    Three r
    Times in a row bells must have been bunched together and I only heard it one time.
    I think it was near dawn but gave me to thinking what it truly was.
    Today alone at home I heard clearly someone say hello…no one in or outside my home.
    It didn’t frighten me but am truly wondering why me?

  • 7.a.m this morning, I heard a big bell rang 3times and the weird thing is we have no! Catholic Church around here. So I was understanding that God has chosen me to be of him. Question is?? What’s my next move Lord God,,. I’m a sinner trying to do it right. By GOD ‘s will when ever he talks to me. I’ll be here awaiting him and his plans for my life’s new challenge and changes. Amen.

  • In most places,when you hear bells. It means you will die very soon. It could also mean someone near or dear to you will. However, in most cases it is one’s death.

  • Today I have experienced this miracle also. I had been praying the Rosary and after I had finished praying I clearly heard bells ring. Like the sound from a small bell. I looked around the house to see if something could have made that sound and I came up with nothing. I have experienced tinnitus and I know what kind of ringing that makes. This bell ringing was not tinnitus. I believe it’s God’s way of saying “I hear you and I am with you. Believe it or not, I am a true believer that God is working for us not against us and he wants us to know that he is there every step of the way.

    Around 4am.in the morning i woke up and tried to go back to sleep.The window is slightly open,Suddenly the bells outside hanging on the tree was ringing it was five little bells tied on a rope all the way down and produced a musical sounds.I listened carefully it was no wind its so quiet apart from the sounds of the bells chimes.it lasted about 3 minutes-i wondered,and after it stop its quiet then i heard wind blowing from the outside and i questioned myself that why the bells did not make a sounds when this time its windy,i tried to go back to sleep and fall asleep.<3

  • God has gave me a gift of prophecy through dreams and visions. I have the gift of the holy spirit and is able to ,speak in unknown tongues. I dreamed of the rapture heard the trumpet sound. Today I kept hearing the chimes. At my two different jobs. I waiting to hear from GOD it got my attention

    • In dream state I heard small bells ringing, In my dream I stood up and in our doorway to our family room there was small silver bells (like chime bells) hanging half way I was so confused about it, I walked to the kitchen window, lifted the blinds and saw out cars were not there the door outside is open and driveway is like a dust road, … and I saw a yellow and red (whoolf) lawn mower… but still the bells is the strangest… Eventually I woke up at 4 checked at the window our cars is there on the paved driveway and the garage door is closed…

  • I have heard bells also…it was at a time I was constantly seeking God and under great spiritual warfare. It was a tolling of the bells that was a bit unsettling. I attribute it to the Holiness of God. I have found peace and rest in Jesus Christ…

  • No I heard it today too. You are not crazy. I just was going through a breakup and was praying to God and heard bells ringing. I was reading my devotion book “Jesus calling” and it read “I am with you” heavens bells peal with the promise of God’s presence. Some people never hear those bells because they are earthbound and closed to God. Others hear the bells only once or twice in their lifetime in rare moments of seeking God above all else. I believe you because it happened to me this morning and was searching to see if anyone else had this amazing experience!

    • Dec 9 2016 For the past week I have heard bells ringing numerous times, nearly everyday. It was mostly in my home when I was in different parts of the house. I search for a physical cause of this sound but nothing. I even heard it in my car, in both cars ( I have 2 cars ). The sound is distinct and not coming from my head. What does it mean ? I can find no natural cause for this event.

  • I’ve been experiencing the same thing in my house, but I’m not the only who has heard them. I agree with Jen, you have to see it or hear it yourself to believe it.

  • Not everything in heaven and earth is of a scientific nature ie tinnitus or schizo personalities. sometimes you have to be open to the idea there are more things we know nothing of, than we know. The more you THINK you know, the less you REALLY know. I am a medical professional and have witnessed things that are not of this world. Don’t be a flat earth society member, there are greater things and I wouldn’t have believed it had I not seen with my own eyes and heard with my own ears.
