I was standing in the cat ward at work, drawing a mandala thingy to pass the time. It's relatively quiet in the back of the clinic... Suddenly my left ear goes deaf, or muffled, and almost as suddenly I'm hearing something that sounds like radio static with a male voice speaking. I can't make out what he's saying but it freaked me out so I shook my head and the radio sounds turned to just a ringing in my ear then faded to nothingness.
This has never happened to me before, and I have no metal in my mouth.
Strange... very strange.
To dream that you are listening to the radio, symbolizes your awareness and intuition toward a particular situation. What you hear through the radio also represents messages from your unconscious. It is possible that it is some form of ESP or telepathic communication.
If you dream that the radio is turned off, then it indicates that you have the ability to help in some situation, but you are refusing to do so.

To dream that you are in a strange place, represents change in your life. Consider how you feel about the surrounding.

Seeing ears in your dreams, suggests that you need to be more responsive or receptive to guidance and assistance from others. You may be relying too much on your own judgment and intuition. You need to listen more closely to what you are being told. Alternatively, it means your immaturity and lack of experience. Dreaming that you are cleaning wax from your ears, suggests that you are not listening to those around you. There may be something that you are refusing to hear. Are you turning a deaf ear? Dreaming of pain in your ear indicates that you will be receive some bad or offensive news.
In the Zohar, the ‘magic head’ stands for astral light (9); in mediaeval art
it is a symbol for the mind (46) and for the spiritual life, which explains the
frequency with which it appeared in decorative art. On the other hand, Plato in
Timaeus asserts that ‘the human head is the image of the world’. In corroboration
of this, Leblant points out that the skull, the semi-spherical crown of the human
body, signifies the heavens. Clearly, the head-symbol here coalesces with that of
the sphere as a symbol of Oneness. It had the same significance in Egyptian
hieroglyphics (19). The eagle’s head has been used as a solar symbol and an
emblem of the centre-point of emanation—that is, of the cosmic flame and the
spiritual fire of the universe (4). Two, three or four heads shown in juxtaposition
symbolize a corresponding intensification of a given aspect of head-symbolism.
Thus, the Gemini, a symbol of the duality of Nature, or of the integrating (but not
unifying) link between the two principles of creation, are represented by beings
with two heads or two faces, like the Roman Janus for example. Hecate is depicted with three heads—she is called triform for this reason—a symbolism
which may be related to the ‘three levels’ of heaven, earth and hell, as well as to
Diel’s three ‘urges of life’ (15). The juxtaposition of four heads or faces, as in the
image of Brahma the Supreme Lord, stems from the same symbolism as that of
the tetramorph (60). A factor of major importance bearing upon the symbolism of
the head is mentioned by Herbert Kühn, in his L’Ascension de l’humanité (Paris,
1958). He makes the point that the decapitation of corpses in prehistoric times
marked Man’s discovery of the independence of the spiritual principle, residing
in the head, as opposed to the vital principle represented by the body as a whole.
Kühn adds that Neolithic thought was very close to the mediaeval in its conviction that an eternal and invisible essence underlies all appearances (Plate XV).

The Upanishads laid down several different states of consciousness, ranging from wakefulness—peopled by objective forms—or daydreams—ordered in accordance with profound, subjective impulses—to the deepest state of consciousness experienced in dreams of the most intense character,
devoid of images. This latter state is directly related to the mystic idea of nothingness. In order properly to grasp the notion of Nirvana, and to understand the
ecstasy of self-annihilation, it is very important to recognize that this oriental
‘nothingness’ is not absolute negation—not the death of all things—but
indifferentiation or, in other words, the absence of conflicts and contrasts and
hence, the banishment of pain and dynamism. Guénon, in his explanation of this
Hindu doctrine, comments: ‘In this state the different objects of manifestation,
including those of individual manifestation, external as well as internal, are not
destroyed, but subsist in principal mode, being unified by the very fact that they
are no longer conceived under the secondary or contingent aspect of distinction;
of necessity they find themselves among the possibilities of the Self and the latter
remains conscious in itself of all these possibilities, as “non-distinctively” beheld
in integral Knowledge’ (26). This concept of nothingness as ‘non-objective reality’—and hence ineffable—probably reached the Hebrew mystics by way of the
Middle East and Persia. According to Rabbi Joseph ben Shalom, living in Barcelona
in the 13th century, more than to any other of the symbolic descriptions of the
revelation of God, special attention should be devoted to that concerning the
mystic nothingness, which is apparent in every abysmal crevice of existence. He
suggests that in each transformation of reality, in each crisis, or moment of suffering, each metamorphosis or change of form, or on every occasion when the state
of a thing is altered, then the abyss of Nothingness is spanned and made visible
for a mystic instant, for nothing can change without making contact with that
region of absolute being which the oriental mystics call Nothingness (the relevant
passage is quoted by G. G. Scholem in Major Trends in Jewish Mysticism). There
is a Cabbalistic anagram which serves to corroborate this by demonstrating that
‘nothing’ in Hebrew is Ain, and that the same letters form the word for ‘I’—Ani.
