Sense of Hearing

Our Sense of Hearing is the vibrational energy we pick up from our environment as sound.  Sound helps us to locate things in our environment, as well as, help us communicate with our environment.

Our ears are the instrument we use for hearing.  Taking good care of our ears allows us to hear and communicate better.

Our ears are sensitive to the intensity (loudness) of sound.  Too loud of a sound and our ears become damaged.

The intensity of sound is measured in decibles (dB).  Sounds less than 75 dB does not damage hearing.  Sounds equal to or greater than 85 dB can cause permanent hearing loss with long term exposures.

Being mindful of sounds in our environment will help us interact better in our environment.

When we wake up in the morning, our ears are coming out of silence.  We shouldn’t shock them with loud/intense sounds.  Gradually expose your ears to sound in the morning and your hearing and environment will become more defined.
