Have you ever heard of the superstition about burning cheeks? If not, you might be surprised at what it means spiritually when your cheeks are burning or feel like they’re on fire.
The superstition about burning cheeks comes originally from Russia, and people have believed in it for hundreds of years. We all know that we should take superstitions with a pinch of salt because they are not verified in any way, and no one knows if they are based on truth, half-truth, or fantasy. However, if your cheeks often burn, you might wonder why this is so (if you’re suffering from an illness.)
Burning cheeks superstition
It is believed that when your cheeks burn, someone who loves you is thinking of you. It could be a person you are currently in a relationship with or someone who secretly loves you, and you don’t know about it.
One superstition says that if only one cheek is burning, a person who likes you as a friend or sees you as a close person is thinking or talking about you. When both of your cheeks are burning, it’s someone who has a romantic interest in you or is talking about you in a romantic way to their friends. The more intense the burning, the more shy or timid the person is.
It could be someone you meet on the street or at work who is afraid to express their feelings and love for you. Instead, they intensively think about you or vent their thoughts to someone else. You are, as it were, the receiver of this energy, which is manifested by the burning of the cheeks.
How to tell someone is thinking or talking about you
There are several reasons why your cheeks burn. It can be the weather, environment, your health, or when someone thinks or talks about you. But how do you know when someone is intensively thinking or talking about you?
The sensation of burning cheeks usually appears suddenly, as if someone has set fire to your cheeks in a split second. You feel a tremendous internal burning in your cheeks that can be felt even at the touch of your hand. It’s not particularly unpleasant or painful, but it’s not pleasant either. The sensation of burning cheeks usually lasts only a few seconds to minutes and disappears on its own.
You may be wondering who might be thinking or talking about you. Unfortunately, there is no way to find out. One book of old superstitions says that the person who comes to mind first when your cheeks burn is the person who is thinking of you. However, only God knows who they really are!
Please remember that if your cheeks often burn and cause you discomfort, do not rely on superstitions but contact your doctor.
