  • Ears are burning, one's - one is being talked about A tingling or burning sensation in the ears supposedly means that a person is being discussed by others. The origin of this belief goes back to Roman times when augurs (see Under the auspices of) paid particular attention to such signs. Pliny wrote: 'It is acknowledged that the absent feel a presentiment of remarks about themselves by the ringing of their ears' (Naturalis Historia, AD 77). The ancient belief that the left signifies evil and the right good applies here also. Both Plautus and Pliny held that if a person's right ear burns then he is being praised, but a burning left ear indicates that he is the subject of evil intent. English literature, from Chaucer to Dickens, abounds with references to burning ears. According to ancient belief, other unexpected bodily twitches and sensations also warn of events to come, among them the eye and the thumb. A flickering right eye, for instance, indicates that a friend will visit or that something longed for will soon be seen, and a pricking in one's left thumb warns of an evil event. Old Superstitions: If your ear is burning, then someone is talking about you. To determine whether what they are saying is good or bad, remember this rhyme, - Left for love, Right for spite!
  • The old saying is 'Left for Love, Right for Spite'. I'm a firm believer in this as when I'm going through emotional conflict (relationships etc) I get extremes. I generally belive this is not when someone is talking about you, but more like when they are thinking about you in either way, ie extreme love, or hate. The human psyche has the ability to pick up on this, that is unless there is some medical explanation for it???... or maybe just one of those unexplained things?
  • Ok , all the answers have to do with superstition , but what about someone who complains all the time about red burning ears who may have health problems. Anybody knows if a certain health problem may cause burning ears?
  • omg my right ear is burnin OMG SOMEONE HATES ME =(
