Several different reasons can explain why you sneeze in the first place.

Sneezing (or sternutation as it’s formally known) is a physical reaction that your body does as it tries to get rid of irritants that are in your nose and/or throat.

Some people love the feeling of sneezing, while others find it obnoxious and annoying, especially when it makes them look dumb in those instances when you think you have to sneeze, but then nothing happens. It’s the worst.

People sneeze when:

  • Their sinuses are reacting to an allergy or irritant of something in the air
  • They have a sinus infection or other viruses like the flu
  • They experience a change in temperature, or their eyes suddenly get hit with bright light
  • They are going through a drug withdrawal
  • They use a nasal spray

The spiritual symbology and numerology of sneezing

At the beginning of this article, we mentioned how there are cultures in the world that believe that when you sneeze, you are forcefully expelling or pushing out evil spirits from your body.

Sneezing, or sternutation if you want to be a little fancy with it, has been the source of several different cultural theories.

Some cultures believe when you sneeze, your soul is actually leaving your body for that split second during your sneeze.

After the sneeze, you were supposed to say a blessing such as “God bless you” or “Salud” so that your soul returns to your body.
