Hiccups are a total pain. For a fraction of a second, you seem to have stopped, steady and peaceful.
Suddenly, your abdomen reacts with a contraction of some sort. You feel it before you hear it: a sudden involuntary jerk accompanied by a loud popping sound produced by the vibration of your vocal cords, caused by your diaphragm.
Everyone knows that hiccups are annoying, but did you know that they’re also a sign of spirit communication?

The spiritual meaning of hiccups may have to do with your breath and the energy of your body.
Hiccups are caused by a sudden spasm of the diaphragm or the muscle beneath your lungs. This spasm can cause you to take in bursts of air around your vocal cords and make the sound we associate with hiccups. This muscle is connected to your solar plexus—a center of energy and gut feelings in your body.
Your solar plexus also governs self-esteem, willpower, and personal power, as well as your ability to manifest energy into reality.
The diaphragm is an important muscle for breathing and connecting with life-force energy, so perhaps hiccups are reminding you to breathe deeply, connect with the present moment, or take some time for yourself.
Hiccups can also mean you’re under a curse or spell.
Conversely, if you have hiccups, it could be that you’re cursing someone else.
This can happen on purpose or accidentally.
For example, imagine you get in a heated argument with your partner about whether pineapple belongs on pizza (it doesn’t), and then soon after you begin to hiccup.
Aside from being a nuisance, this could be an indication that some of that negative energy is transferring onto the other person. However, there’s a simple remedy to undo this curse:
- Take your index finger and gently tap your forehead above the eyebrows five times.
- Repeat this tapping motion but on the area between your nose and top lip five times.
- Tap the spot directly between your lips five times.
- Your final rounds of taps should be just above either cheekbone—one side at a time—five times each side.
Aside from helping others who may need it, having the hiccups can also be an indication that you need to re-evaluate how much anger or negativity is building up inside of you.
You can remove toxins like these through meditation or exercise—or by forgiving yourself for inadvertently cursing someone else when all they did was call pineapple pizza stupid (which it is).
They could be a sign that someone has sent you an evil eye.
Hiccups are the sudden, involuntary spasms of your diaphragm. When a hiccup unexpectedly interrupts your daily activities, it can be annoying or even embarrassing.
But is there a deeper meaning to this occurrence? Could this seemingly mundane event carry spiritual significance?
In some traditions, hiccups are interpreted as a sign that someone has sent you an evil eye (also known as al-ayn in Arabic).
The evil eye is a curse cast by someone who is jealous of you and wishes to harm you. These curses can be deliberate or unintentional—you could unwittingly receive one from someone who simply admires you or wants something that you have.
In some cases, the person does not even have to know about their action for it to affect you; for example, if an envious neighbor sees something of yours through their window and silently covets it, the resulting curse could manifest in your body as hiccups.
Other signs of an evil eye include frequent yawning or feeling very tired throughout the day without any clear cause. If these symptoms persist and are accompanied by other unexplainable phenomena such as strange marks on your body or disturbances in your home, consider taking action to remove the curse before it causes serious harm.
Hiccups might also mean that an angel is watching over you.
If you get hiccups on a regular basis, this might mean that an angel is watching over you.
If your hiccups suddenly start or stop, it could be because the angel is touching your shoulder to say hello. Having the hiccups could also be a sign that someone you love is thinking about you.
They may not even be aware of it, but their thoughts may just cause a brief interruption in your breathing pattern.
If a loved one has died, this could also be the reason for hiccups. A positive way to interpret this is as though they are checking in with you from time to time—a comforting thought for any grieving person.
As with many other physical phenomena, if you experience hiccups on a regular basis, it’s best to consult a medical professional to rule out serious conditions such as diabetes or brain tumors.
Don’t worry too much if you find yourself getting hiccups every so often!
You’re probably doing something right and should feel grateful that there’s an angel watching over you!
Hiccups can also mean that someone is thinking about you.
Hiccups can mean someone is thinking about you. If you have hiccups, try to think back to the last person you spoke to or interacted with.
It’s possible that this person has been thinking about you, and that your hiccups are a result of their thoughts.
Perhaps they’re feeling guilty for something they’ve done, or maybe they’re embarrassed because they recently told a joke and no one laughed. Whatever it is, make sure to call them as soon as possible so that they know you’ve been thinking of them too!
If you’re with friends, consider having everyone in the group say the name of the last person they spoke to.
Once everyone has contributed their answer, figure out which one among your group was most recently spoken to by each other member—this will be the person who has been thinking about all of your friends for some reason!
Call this special individual as soon as possible so thy know how much they matter to you.
There are several possible spiritual meanings for hiccups
The spiritual meaning of hiccups can vary depending on where you are in the world, but there are a few common interpretations.
For example, if you’re in Africa and have hiccups, this is a symbol that someone is thinking about you. If you’re in India and have hiccups while cooking, it means that guests will be arriving soon.
Hiccups can also sometimes mean that your body is trying to tell you something else.
For instance, they may be caused by stress or extreme emotional distress. They could also indicate some sort of gastrointestinal irritation or even a serious health problem like esophageal cancer or a tumor in your brainstem.
If your hiccups persist for more than a few hours at a time, it’s important to visit your doctor to learn what might be causing them so that an underlying medical condition can be treated appropriately as soon as possible.
How do you cure hiccups?
If there’s any one tried-and-true method for getting rid of persistent hiccups, it’s holding your breath until they stop; however, there are other things that may help too—like drinking cold water with sugar dissolved into it (one teaspoon per cup) or eating small bites of ice cream slowly over time (about one bite every minute).
- If none of those options work for you then try these hiccup cures next:
- placing something sour on the tongue such as lemon juice
- drinking hot peppermint tea with honey mixed into it (one tablespoon per cup)
- gargling warm salt water every hour until relief comes from within approximately 24 hours after starting treatment
- sucking hard candy made from ginger root extract (the stronger variety will have more medicinal effects)
Are spiritual hiccups a good thing?
They can help you with your future sight. The ability to see past or future events indicates that a person is developing clairvoyance.
This development provides many benefits, including an increase in empathy and compassion, which help to ground the person more fully in the present moment.
