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?
Perhaps God is telling you something
Hi have you felt like someone or the Lord has shown what the bells meant?
Have you found out from God or anyone what it means?
Hi have you been shown by the Lord Jesus Christ or an angel what they meant?
Do not be afraid.
I hear a soft bell ringing too. As I’m waking up from sleep. Not sure if it’s waking me up or not. It’s the type of bell your mom would give you when you have a sore throat or hear in Church during the communion blessing. I think it’s a good thing.
Yes, I’ve heard the bells recently for the first time ever. 2 weeks prior I made my first confession at a Catholic Church and received a blessing for me and my family. I considered this as part of the blessing..
I agree! I had lost my entire family over an 8 year period and have been going to church and praying to Blessed Mary. I recently prayed for my brother who committed suicide and a priest prayed for his forgiveness. 2 weeks later, I heard bells in my left ear.. then saw my brothers face and he was smiling. God blessed my family and forgave my brother. I think he was finally forgiven.
Tinnitus is actually a different scenario, it can change in intensity and type, but you don’t just hear a couple of bell like sounds very clear, nothing like a sound that people with tinnitus hear. Then you don’t hear that sound again for years, so there is no way you hear two tiny bell sounds once in 5 years, and call it a tinnitus especially if two people heard it at the same time, that one time and never again.
Yeah, I am a nurse by profession a 4 year college graduate, then one year med school too and studied sciences all my life but stuff still spooks me. I feel something brushing against my face but there is no wind or any air movement in the house. A pigeon came to my yard once and stayed on my head for two hours, wouldn’t fly off, he wasn’t scared of me or my dog or my cats. When I had to go in the house to use the washroom he flew on the roof age and waited for me to come out, and landed on my head again. My neighbors took a photo. Then at exactly 7 pm he flew off and I have never seen him again. He never once pooed on me. I was working in the garden and when I bent he went back towards my neck to hang onto my clothes, then when I straightened he came right on top of my head again. How weird is that ?!
I am freaking out now, because I have relatives all over the world, and keep thinking that something will happen. Since both my husband and I heard it, it is real. There was no technology on at home and no wind so the wind chimes didn’t move. We also have no one else living with us. My husband is 81 and has a heart disease, now I am really worried. I have never heard anything like it, they were tiny bell like sounds one minute apart. On 14th of March we also started hearing some sort of fluttering sounds like a wind in our chimney except there was no wind. It happened several times already and last night it happened at midnight, then again at 4 am and then just after 10 am right before we heard the bell sound. My loved one died 17 years ago and today is his birthday. Spooky !!!
Both my husband and I heard two tiny rings, like on a bell in stores when you call for a store help to come up front. No laptops, tablets or anything else was on. All the windows and doors were closed. The only thing I could think of is that my loved one died on this same day 17 years ago. I also kept thinking of the “Its a Wonderful Life” movie where Jimmy Stewart said : When the bell rings, an angel gets its wings !
your not alone I here the bells also it last for a few seconds
please delete this post
i have been having this experience for the past couple of weeks. after waking I walk into my bathroom in the middle of the night. As soon as i open the door I hear a bell go off, like hitting a musical triangle. I looked all over the room to see what could’ve made this sound, but found no reasonable cause. It has continued even just last night, around 10 pm wide awake I was in my bathroom and clearly heard this bell again and then again in the middle of the night. I have been a christian for over 35 years with many spiritual encounters, but this is a very different undeniable physical experience. I am always alone when this happens and told my children I wish they were around when it happens because it is very distinct audibly.

I just searched this as I was in bed nine pm and heard lovely chime like bells in distance and it was beautiful
Strange isn’t it
Perhaps a loved one x
Idk but this happened to me today. It is 1/29/2018 today. Earlier at exactly 5:15 A.M I heard faint church bells. I didn’t think too much of it at all until I listened to it. The bells stopped so I moved on with what I was doing. A couple minutes later I hear it again but louder and right when it started. It startled me sort of. I pushed it to the side and stood up to open my door to find out where the bells sound might be coming from. THE BELLS STOPPED IMMEDIATELY! THEN THEY STARTED IMMEDIATELY AGAIN WHEN I SAT DOWN! The Holy Spirit struck me like lightning and called my by thunder. I began to cry out to the Lord for he convicted my heart and I felt like a prophecy has been fulfilled or that it was a warning message for me from the Lord.
Little light sounding bells or loud bells?
My bro died this May. I nursed him till 36 hrs before he went to Heaven. Now that i hav moved back to my house
I & other person hear little tinkling bell in waking hrs. Bell moves all around the house. Cant find what it is.
I heard the bells ring awhile ago and my daughter was in the room too and I asked from her, did you hear that? She said “Hear what? I didn’t hear anything”… Now I know what it was. I have been going through a lot and I have been spiritually awakening (transition).5 years and now I feel the love of God and Angels are constantly guiding me…
Sorry my engl. Is not my native language!
Anyway I know this is a sign from God that you are loved by God and doing the right thing and you are safe!
Don’t believe anyone who says it’s sickness or someone going to die, no. It’s God.
Hi Paul, it was really interesting and helpful to read your comment.
I had a similar experience in my home, 3 days ago and came across this site after doing an internet search and what you describe is maybe the closest to what I heard.
It was just to my left, close by my side and sounded like a very small bell being rung, just briefly : dinga-linga-linga-linga-ling.
Which was a bit strange to say the least.
I then went in to my kitchen, reached up in to a cupboard for something and had the oddest sensation of a sudden, small, rush of air against the left side of my face, like the movement of air, as if someone had just blown on my cheek, or something had just whizzed past me.
I looked to my left, towards the window, to see my red, Perspex ‘hearts’ mobile, that is hanging there, gently twisting from side to side and just to be clear, all windows and external doors were closed, they are double-glazed and there are no draughts. This mobile usually just hangs there, motionless, unless the windows are open.
Also, for the sake of clarity and to address what others have said on here, I do have tinnitus and this was Nothing like that at all, they are entirely different things and as any fellow tinnitus sufferers can confirm, those particular sounds are very obviously internal and Constant.
Whereas this ‘bells’ experience was most definitely external and momentary.
I also felt quite calm and peaceful throughout this fairly peculiar experience, rather than spooked or freaked out by it.
Anyway, just thought I’d add to this rather intriguing/fascinating discussion, just in case any of it resonates with anyone else.
Love and Light, Mx
I started hearing spirit bells around the same time my father did. He had terminal cancer at the time and he said he had started hearing them because he knew his time was up. My father was very psychic but chose to never develop. Not strange considering he was born in the 1930’s and a scientist. The bells are still with me four years on… Not daily but when I hear them I just see them as a gentle memento mori and hello from Heaven.
I had the exact same experience 15 minutes ago!.(I’ve been meditating for awhile now).
I heard an old church bell 3 times, 5 minutes after i heard it again except it was so much deeper than when i first heard it so i went to go look (it was 12:43 am) nothing i went back inside and heard it again. anyone know what it is?
(I am not near any boats,planes,churches, or bells.)
