The “love hormone,” oxytocin, which is produced in the brain as a result of kissing, is what causes feelings of affection and romantic attachment. Physical acts like kissing foster trust by exposing vulnerability. Whether it’s a quick kiss on the cheek, a kiss on the forehead, or a lip-to-lip action, the first kiss is always awkward. However, as the relationship and trust develop through risky behaviors like kissing, the kissing becomes less risky (and hopefully better).
Additionally, it has been demonstrated that kissing can lower stress levels and even give you a boost of adrenaline to get your blood pumping, which can occasionally result in even more heart-pounding activities.
Everyone enjoys a good kiss, preferably one that comes from a great kisser. However, receiving a kiss on the forehead specifically is entirely different from receiving one on the lips.
A kiss on the forehead has a more protective and innocent quality than a kiss on the lips, but it still fosters trust and attachment through the same sense of unabashed vulnerability.
When you get a kiss on the forehead, it’s probably coming from a loving partner or a concerned parent who wants to cover you in blessings, solace, and healing. At his daughter’s wedding, the father kisses his daughter on the forehead and tells her that he is proud of the woman she has become and that he will always love her. A mother holds her young son in her arms and kisses his forehead as he sobs after falling off his bike for the first time, reassuring him that everything will be alright.
This kiss is unique in its kind.
The Spiritual Implications of a Forehead Kiss
Your forehead is being kissed by someone who greatly admires you. A kiss on the forehead is an expression of emotional closeness between two people and is not sexual in any way.
By giving you a kiss, someone is expressing their sentiment that they believe you are one of the few people for whom they would go to any lengths to ensure your safety and happiness. They are your staunchest allies and genuinely want to see you achieve all of your goals in life. The person kissing you is blessing you. A kiss on the forehead denotes that the recipient is receiving a blessing of some kind.
This could take the form of a parent giving their child permission to fulfill a long-held desire or the go ahead and marry their partner. Another example would be a spouse sending good luck and protection to their spouse to keep them safe or to bring them back to health when they are ill.
You are truly invaluable.
We have a tendency to assign a value and a price to almost everything in this world. However, there are some things that are simply beyond compare priceless and precious, making them impossible to quantify.
This is what someone is conveying to you when you or they kiss each other on the forehead. You are priceless beyond words to this person.
In this world, you are their top priority.
Accountability and defense

This is why a kiss on the forehead is such a unique expression of love. While a kiss on the lips unmistakably conveys affection, a kiss on the forehead communicates your conviction that you should do everything in your power to keep this person safe.
The third eye being kissed
A person’s third eye is thought to be located in the forehead and serves as a portal to the soul. In a more profound and spiritual sense, kissing someone on the forehead is equivalent to kissing the doorway to their very soul.
As it can feel like you are opening up a part of yourself to this person, letting someone kiss you on the forehead is a real act of vulnerability.
When your partner kisses you on the forehead the next time, picture them kissing your soul.
