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?
