Yanny vs. Laurel Phenomenon
Could there be any amount of spiritual significance?
Well I do believe that there is – to a certain extent.
We know the more scientific reasoning behind why one person will hear Yanny while another will hear Laurel:
It’s a mixture of the sound system: the treble, bass, and the degree to which the listener is tuned to a higher or lower frequency. It also depends on the size and shape of our ears as that too influences our interpretations in different directions.
We detect with our ears, but we hear with our brains. The human brain picks one interpretation of what it receives. The brains of the people who hear Yanny appear to be locking onto the higher frequencies. For the record, it’s a low quality recording of the word Laurel … even if you are hearing Yanny.
Initially, all I was hearing was Yanny. However, with a bit of focus, I can then hear both. So too can my two daughters and husband.
The one concept I wish to focus on here is that of listening to higher versus lower frequencies. You will see what I mean in a few moments … or so I hope.
Think of the concept of the different frequencies, then think about spirit communication. Do you see where I am going with this now?
Spirits communicate on … different frequency levels. At the higher frequencies, that is where you will hear your spirit guides, angels, divine source – and even sometimes of course passed over loved ones. On the lower frequencies, often that is where haunting spirits will be sitting – but even then the lower frequencies are higher than what we, as human beings, can USUALLY hear.
As mentioned, I can hear both Yanny and Laurel – with a bit of focus. Therefore, with a little bit of focus and training, we CAN hear our guides, angels and other spirit forms.
And I did indeed do a little bit of research on this because I wanted to know if anyone else in the spiritual and/or metaphysical world has touched upon it. To my surprise, I came across an article on the website “Christian Today.” And at the very end of the article, they pointed out a small story in the Bible – of which immediately struck me as somewhat supporting my own theory regarding hearing frequencies and that of spirits, angels and guides … yes even though it isn’t metaphysical in nature. I will insert those two paragraphs from that article below, and I will put in bold the statements that really struck me:
Courtesy of “Christian Today”:
In the Gospel of John, Jesus is speaking of his death to come, when he says to heaven: ‘Father, glorify your name!’ Then, we are told: ‘a voice came from heaven, “I have glorified it, and will glorify it again.”The crowd that was there and heard it said it had thundered; others said an angel had spoken to him. Jesus said, “This voice was for your benefit, not mine“‘(John 12:28-30). God speaks, but only some hear a voice. Or was he speaking through an angel? Others hear thunder.
Somewhat confusingly, Jesus says that the voice was for the benefit of the listeners, which is made perplexing by the fact that the audience don’t all hear the same thing, which raises the question, ‘Why not’? Have they been predestined to hear or not hear, granted their perception or lack of it by God? Have they failed to ‘tune in’ to the frequency of heaven? Does holiness help hearing, were they distracted by other sounds? The text functions powerfully here though, as it offers an authority on the matter – some heard merely thunder, but the writer John is giving his audience, decades after the event, an insight into the voice that came from heaven.
I would also like to add that this just gives further “proof” that just because we cannot hear it (or see it), that doesn’t mean that it doesn’t exist. The higher frequencies exist … just like in the Yanny versus Laurel recording. Just because one person can’t hear Yanny or another person can’t hear Laurel, that doesn’t mean that what they are hearing isn’t the truth of their perceptions. They are just simply tuning in to the frequency of the sound being heard by their brains – with again Yanny being apparently on a higher frequency. Therefore, the same can be said for communicating with spirits, guides, angels and divine.
Readers like myself are just simply “tuning in” to much higher frequencies of sound. How much do you want to bet that a lot of psychics and psychic mediums likely heard Yanny before anything else?! It’s because psychics and their brains are “wired” to hear the higher sound frequencies!
Just because one person can’t hear those higher frequencies, it doesn’t mean they don’t exist. However, it does mean though that given some focus, we CAN LEARN how to tune into those frequencies.
