I have severe ringing in my right ear. The sound began with the trauma of a fight with my parents and an accident 3 decades ago... I have practiced meditation for nearly 20 years the ringing continues to be a distraction. What can you suggest to help me work with this ringing in my practice?

The ringing is not a sound in your ear, but it is the anxiety created by your memories, I believe. 30 years ago the fight between your beloved father and mother created some fear and left a scar in your heart. I have a similar experience myself. The fights between parents are hard to bear for a child. You have grown a lot since then. And you do not want to keep carrying these memories around. Please, do forgive your parents.
