If that happens to you, try the following things to unclog your ears:
1) Sedate your kidney points.
2) Sedate your liver points.
3) Strengthen your spleen points.
4) Pull your ears out - literally, go around your ears tugging on them.
5) Cup your hand over your ear, and tap on the back of your hand a few times.
More often than not, these exercises help the energy in the ear to open up. And then you can hear all the things people want you to do for them again.
Bet you're really glad now.
If you're ears are ringing, follow 1) and 2) above, but then sedate Triple Warmer for 3), and also put a tiny drop of lavender essential oils on your temple (that's the neurovascular points for Triple Warmer, and it can calm it down in a flash.)
