Yanny Or Laurel Phenomenon

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.

Having Expectations

Do You Have Expectations?”

By: Tania Bartlett of Soul Writings By Tania

Have you ever had an expectation and then were disappointed when it is not done in the way that you “expected” it to be? What about being treated the same way you treat others? Do you expect them to have the same heart and care like you do?

I know for myself this is huge and is something that I am still working on. It is not easy! Think of how freeing it would be to live a life free of expectations! Not everybody is considerate or thoughtful like you are and that is just reality unfortunately. We hope that they will respond how we hope or think they should, or do things that we would do to be helpful but that is just not the case. A good quote I read was “Expectations are the root of all heartache” and that sums it up well.

We ask ourselves, how do we handle this? How can we live without expectations? I feel that there are different aspects to this. Being a parent, there are certain things that are expected. For example: going to school, good behaviour, values, manners, helpful, kindness to others, good hygiene, among many other. These types are expectations that set boundaries on behaviour to guide them into functioning adults. This is not what I’m writing about. When we go out of our way to help others and it is either not appreciated or they don’t say thank you as we would do, we set up that expectation that everyone is grateful, well mannered and would respond like you would. When we expect them to respond in a certain way, we set ourselves up for disappointment. Keep focus on the task at hand and just do things to help and not “expect” a thank you, recognition or what ever you feel you need. Do it out of the kindness of your heart not your ego. You can acknowledge the unkindness of others but do not harp on it or keep thinking of it over and over. Let it go. It is not about giving up or thinking negatively of others. It’s about releasing our attachment to outcomes and eliminating the need for validation. To let go, is to lovingly surrender to what is and be at peace with it.

This does not mean that you become a door mat! Trust me, I’ve done my fair share of saying “Your Welcome” when I don’t get a “Thank you”. Not taking things personally is the hardest aspect of this. Make sure that you are doing things for people for the right reasons, check your motivation behind it. Your motivation is the foundation of your thoughts and actions. Be honest with yourself. You might be able to hide your intentions from others, but you can’t hide them from yourself. It’s not always easy to do! All we can do is to be the best person you can be and make sure that you are authentic in your kindness. One of the easiest ways to practice “no expectations” is by being an anonymous donor by paying it forward. Next time your in the drive thorough, buy for the person behind you. You are not “expecting” a thank you because by the time they know what happened, you are long gone but it warms their heart, they are grateful, puts a smile on their face and they will hopefully pay it forward as well. This is a first step to releasing expectations.

As the quote by Sri Chinmoy states, “Peace begins when expectations end”. Living a peaceful life is what we all strive for. And it is in your grasp! All you need to do is relax, feel with your heart, live life for you and all that you love. We are all human and there will be setbacks.Keep your thoughts positive, your energy clear and a bunch of faith. When you feel doubt creep in and those expectations start to come into your head, stop yourself in your tracks and change focus and reframe, what can you do to accept the other person’s actions or position without judgement?

Is there a situation currently in your life where you hold expectations? What can you do today to help you let go of them?

Cheers 🙂
