Eye Twitching Meaning – Omen or Superstition

Last Updated on May 31, 2021

Has your eye been twitching a lot lately?

If it has, don’t ignore it!

Eye twitching, also known as blepharospasm, can happen to everyone.

Blepharospasm is constant eye twitching that you can’t control and can have several causes.

Sometimes, eye twitching is called eye jumping; you may see both phrases used online.

I will go over some of the superstitions behind eye twitching.

Cultures all around the world have meanings for different parts of the body, so it makes sense that these superstitions aren’t all the same.

Left Eye Twitching

In 1927, William Roberts wrote an essay called Relativity and Life.

In his writing, he talked about the symbolism between your eyes twitching, stating that a left eye twitching means you will hear bad news, and a right eye twitching means you will hear good news.

This isn’t the only interpretation though.

Although William Roberts said that your left eye twitching is bad news, other societies have expanded and elaborated on this.

Chinese culture provides the most thorough explanation for the left eye twitching.

The time of day plays a factor in what the eye twitching means.

For example, if your left eye twitches at noon, then you should look forward to a reward from your work.

If your left eye begins twitching from 7 pm to 9 pm, then you should trust the people around you.

They may be able to help you through any problems you are experiencing.

To add more confusion to the Chinese interpretations, the word for ‘left’ is similar to ‘money’ in Mandarin Chinese; your left eye twitching could also be good luck.

Don’t get confused over Chinese meanings though!

Many other societies around the world all have similarities in interpretations. In general, your left eye twitching is bad.

Chinese interpretations throughout the day are split between good and bad.

It makes sense that every society is a little different, so be sure to take this information with a grain of salt.

It is hard to say which society is more ‘correct’, however, they all stem from the same basic idea of good vs. evil.

Overall, your left eye twitching may be a sign that something bad is happening or is going to come soon.

If you notice things in your life-changing when your left eye is twitching, take it seriously.

You never know what could happen, and it is better to be prepared.

Stay alert to anything out of the ordinary that is happening around you!

Right Eye Twitching

Remember William Roberts?

He mentioned that a right eye twitching is good, while a left eye twitching is bad.

He further explained by saying that if your right eye is twitching, someone is talking positively about you.

If you ever feel a twitch in the right eye, you can rest easy knowing that others like you.

Above, I mentioned the Chinese superstition about eye twitching.

The right eye twitching throughout the day has different meanings as well.

If your right eye is twitching around noon, you should do more charitable work and build your karma.

If your right eye twitches from 7 pm to 9 pm, then you can look forward to a gathering of friends or family.

Indian culture believes that the right eye twitching is good luck, but only for men.

If you are a woman and your right eye is twitching, you should take that as a sign of bad luck.

In addition to meaning in both eyes, the part of the eye that twitches is also important.

Check out the list below to see the meaning behind the different parts of your right eye.

Most societies around the world have a positive meaning for the right eye twitching.

Your right eye twitching is a good thing that should not be feared.

If you start to feel your right eye twitching, look out for any positive changes in your life!

Be sure to keep a positive attitude and stay alert to your surroundings.

Final Thoughts

In 2020, many people don’t believe in omens or superstitions.

An occurrence isn’t looked at spiritually.

In different cultures though, eye twitching can have a spiritual meaning.

These twitches aren’t taken lightly.

We don’t know for sure if these meanings are true but learning about them will help prepare you for any eye twitching that may come up.

These meanings may be arbitrary to you, but they could also be completely real.

Learning the meanings takes no extra effort.

It’s important to know about the spiritual world because there is no definite proof that it doesn’t exist.

Superstitions are ideas that seem to contradict known laws in the world, however, they can be grounded in some truth.

Similarly, don’t pass off an omen because you don’t believe in them.

Omens can warn you about things that are to come in your life, whether you believe in them or not.

It is impossible to say that superstitions and omens aren’t real because we don’t know everything there is to know about the universe.

Overall, the idea of good vs. bad is interpreted through the eyes.

The eyes are an important part of your body, with a lot of ancient lore dealing with them.

Ever heard of the ‘evil eye’?

This eye was believed to spread bad luck if looked at directly.

Those who wear evil eye jewelry are supposedly protected from the evil around them.

Now you know all about eye twitching omens and superstition!

You just need to remember that left eye twitches are bad and right eye twitches are good.

After this, you should be able to confidently recognize the meaning of your eye twitch.

Don’t forget that both eyes twitching can also be related to medical issues.

If you feel like the twitching is serious, you may want to consult a doctor.

Causes could include lack of sleep, pollution, alcohol, and allergies.

If the eye twitching becomes increasingly more intense, don’t hesitate to ask for medical help.
