How Your Soul Experiences Taste
This article is part of the Are You Coming to Your Senses? series.
Welcome to the third installment of our five-part series on how your soul perceives your physical senses. We have previously discussed the senses of sight and sound, and in this article we explore the sense of taste that resides within your human embodiment.
Taste is so important to us that we have come to sensationalize the eating experience. There are currently numerous cooking shows and competitions where contestants compete for who can prepare the best meal. Someone then passes judgment on what is the best food based solely on personal taste preference.
Source Has No Limit
Think of all the spices and food additives that have been created for the enjoyment of the human experience. Isn’t it interesting how people can react so differently to the same spice, or have such opposing reactions to the same food? Even people sharing the same meal at a table together can have entirely different taste reactions. Humans also have completely different reactions when biting into, swallowing, or ingesting the same foods as others. This could be due to food allergies, how the food is grown, and what chemicals or fertilizers were used in production. In short, there are endless variables when it comes to taste.
We declare that no two humans taste anything exactly the same! How something tastes is based solely upon YOUR taste buds, circulatory, and sensory systems — not anyone else’s. And no two people are the same.
From a spiritual (soul’s) perspective, why would Source need to taste something the same way every time? That would mean that Source would have a limitation to it, and Source has no limit.
The Soul’s Perspective on Taste
Let’s talk about the Soul’s perspective on taste. There is taste from within! Have you ever had a stressful or traumatic experience and gotten a sour taste in your mouth? Or perhaps a metallic taste in the back of your throat? What is that? If there is no food or something physical that you are ingesting in that moment, what is it that you are tasting?
It’s a taste sensation that is in alignment with an emotion. That is your soul’s inner taste experience! Yet humans are constantly explaining it away as a bad meal they ate earlier in the day, or some food that didn’t sit well in their stomach.
Physical taste is in alignment with the contact of your tongue and taste buds with a substance. The physical response to something is in reference to whether you thought what was being tasted was sweet, sour, salty, savory or bitter, or pleasant or unpleasant to you.
Emotional Experience First
Your inner soul’s taste works differently. It is ignited by the emotional experience first. This emotion can actually cause you to taste something in your mouth. Think of the phrase “the sweet taste of success.” What does success or joy taste like? It must taste sweet because so many humans have made that declaration.
What about the traumatic experiences that so many of you go through when you experience dry mouth or a sour taste? What is that? It is when your soul is having a traumatic soul sensation! A traumatic soul taste sensation based upon your emotions being stirred.
Physical vs Soul Taste
How can you tell when you’re experiencing a taste whether it’s physical or your soul’s taste sensation? Is your tongue touching something physical, which then allows an emotional response? Then that is taste based upon the physical. If you are getting the emotion first, and then a type of sensation through your embodiment or your taste sensory system, that is your soul connection!
You are the master of your physical embodiment and the energy flow in your physical body. You have the ability to experience your soul’s sensation through your senses.
As you refine your awareness process and your awareness state is heightened, you will more readily experience being in alignment with your soul through any or all of your senses.
When you are working on aligning with your soul and you’re practicing the art of conjuring the emotion of your soul, you can be experiencing this through sight, sound, and even the tasting of your emotions.
Did you realize your emotions had a taste to them? We hope that with this new awareness you will start experiencing taste from your soul’s perspective.
Soul Retrieval on Gaia
Just like the traumatic experiences Brad mentions above that can give you a bad taste, trauma also can fragment your soul. The good news? You can reclaim your power and once again become the master of your soul. Get started with Jill Kuykendall on Soul Retrieval on Talks with Regina Meredith.
How to Connect With the Divine Energy Your Higher Self Holds
The Divine Self, or the Higher Self, as it is also known, is a belief held by Hindus and New Age thought alike. According to these beliefs, the Divine Self is the Self that exists at an even higher level than the soul; it is in every human being ever born. It is the true self essence of the Universe that dwells in your being, the source of all light and life within you, and your true motivation for living.
The Divine self is what powers you and makes you wonder. It is the spiritual journey of the soul light at your core that chose to be incarnate at this point in time. It’s ever-aware and has been thinking since you began existing in this lifetime, and since your birth in other lifetimes. The body and the physical realm, in which we dwell in our own life, are thought to be but a vehicle for the Higher Self.
If you’ve ever experienced synchronicities, where coincidences that are too uncanny to be coincidental occur in your life, you may be in the process of connecting with your higher self.
In the same beliefs, the soul is closer to the personality and is an intermediary between the person and her Divine Self until such time as she is able to directly experience and realize the Divine Self as who she is.
How to Contact Your Higher Consciousness
If you’re interested in opening up to your Divine Self, the practice promises guidance, peace, harmony, and illuminating light through its higher knowledge. Believers also claim that you can more easily turn away from the distractions of the physical world, and restore yourself in the light, love, and power of this eternal Self, because it will reveal the illusions, desires, and attachments that keep you trapped in a lower vibration and on a lesser path, thus enabling you to find your higher path. You are also supposed to gain a greater ability to recognize limiting, disharmonious, and restricting energies and forms.
The Divine Self is always trying to reach you, to send you the higher power, illumination, love, and wisdom to draw higher forms, thoughts, feelings, and situations into your everyday life. The Divine Self is wise; it knows all and is always showing you an easier, better, more joyful way to live.
Because of these things, it’s not a huge struggle through your willpower to contact your Divine Self. All you need do is set your intention and open to all the gifts of consciousness that await you as you connect with this Self.
