Spiritual Meaning of Smelling Gas: Is It a Ghost?

Smelling gas is a bad sign. If you smell it in the house, you should evacuate the house and call in the professionals.

Only once it has been deemed safe can you reenter the home.

The alternative is an explosion plus consequences I’m sure you wouldn’t want. What if you smell gas and there is no gas leak, though? There might be a spiritual meaning of smelling gas, including that there’s a ghost-like figure hovering.

What is the Spiritual Meaning of Smelling Gas?


Change is the story on the cards when it comes to spiritual meanings behind smelling gas (when there isn’t an actual gas leak).

It might be a good change.

On the other hand, it might be bad. The smell of gas is a warning sign, of sorts, so it’s usually a sign that you need to keep your eyes open for all enemies, obstacles, and bad situations. 

It’s not all unwelcome news, though. Sometimes, you must experience bad news (such as breaking up with a toxic partner) to then experience a good life (being happier without them).

Does Smelling Gas Mean a Ghost is Near?


Yes, smelling gas can mean that a ghost is near, but it’s not the only spiritual meaning or message. It’s also a sign of change, a need to banish toxic negativity, and more.

It is important to take the entire image and scene into account when trying to work out the true message

If you’re thinking about a relative or loved one who has passed over and smell gas at the same time, it could very well be the case that the loved one is near and making you aware of their presence.

Spiritual Meaning of Smelling Gas: 5 Messages and Warnings

Spiritual Meaning of Smelling Gas

Let’s take a deep dive into the spiritual meaning of smelling gas that could apply to you. Read through these potential meanings and make note of the one(s) that stand out to you for any kind of reason.

It might make you feel guilty, angry, or any other kind of emotion. The ones that make you feel something are more than likely the right ones for you. 

1) Trouble Ahead

Smelling gas when there is no reason for you to smell it could be the universe’s way of letting you know that there’s danger or trouble in your future. You must tread carefully going forward, especially when making big decisions.

Make sure you take the time to properly read, research, and consider every detail before choosing one way or the other. 

There are risks ahead. Watch your step and have a backup plan for any big plans. Just in case. 

2) A Burning Desire

When there’s a spark in a room full of gas, it alights, and an explosion happens. Perhaps that’s what you’re waiting for you in your life: a bright explosion of something.

Love, passion, new hobbies or pastimes… who knows what might happen?

Just make sure that your burning desire isn’t for something bad or negative, such as a toxic lover, a job you’re not well suited to, or a friend that makes you feel like trash.

Those things will not and do not benefit you in any way. It’s easier said than done, but you need to focus your attentions on something that will benefit your life and not hinder it. 

3) Banish Negative Energies, Immediately

Smelling gas is a sign of danger in any kind of situation. It could actually be a gas leak, which is highly dangerous. If you smell gas but there isn’t a gas leak nearby, however, it isn’t the danger of gas that the smell is pointing you towards.

It is, instead, towards something else

Usually, this spiritual symbol is a sign that you need to cut out negative energies before they cause great harm to you, your life, or the things you cherish the most.

I recommend using burning a smudge stick, also known as sage and sometimes accompanied with other plant items.

You simply hold the smudge stick in your hand, light one end, and walk around the home, room by room. Everywhere the smoke from the sage touches becomes purified and negative energies are banished

4) Blocked Chakras/Root Chakra

There is some debate over which chakra controls the sense of smell, but the root chakra is most often linked to the sense.

Smelling gas or other things that aren’t really there could connect to a disconnected, blocked, misaligned, or otherwise malfunctioning root chakra

This chakra is responsible for several things, including making you feel safe, ensuring your survival instinct is peak and optimal, and keeps you calm during disasters or crises.

When open, balanced, and aligned, it can cause improved sleep, a balancing of your emotions, and a sense of belonging, amongst many other benefits. 

You can open and activate all chakras using smells and scents, and the best ones for the root chakra specifically are:

  • Plum;
  • Patchouli;
  • Juniper;
  • Myrrh;
  • Cypress;
  • Valerian;
  • Rose.

5) It’s Time to Trust Your Intuition 

Spiritual types will always tell you to trust your gut instinct, intuition, sixth sense, or whatever it is that you like to call it, but what does that actually mean? Well, your gut instinct is what makes that voice say, “He’s probably lying,” when he is, indeed, lying. 

It’s also the thing that makes you feel odd in your stomach area when danger is right around the corner, or when something seems too good to be true, or an opportunity isn’t all that it seems

Right now, when the smell of gas seemingly engulfs you, is the absolute perfect time to try trusting your intuition. Listen to it. If it tells you to back away, do just that and back away. It’s there for a reason and should be trusted a lot more than it is.

As you can see, there are several potential spiritual meanings of smelling gas, and not all of them are bad, negative, or considered warnings.

As always, the interpretation of dreams is a deeply personal and subjective process, so I urge you to call on your own emotions, thoughts, memories, and ideals to come to the right conclusion. 

You have the key to unlock the meanings of all your dreams and real-life situations.
