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.
8 Ways to Maintain Your Spirituality in Times of Stress
Being spiritual around the clock isn’t easy.
In between time commitments, children, making dinner and hustling in and out of the house, it can be easy to lose your spiritually cultivated mindset at the exact moment when you need it most. Not to mention the stress from whatever’s going on in the world. Stress can cause anyone to lose their balance – spiritually, emotionally and mentally. But you don’t have to.
Here are eight tips to keep you centered even during the most stressful times.
- Ground out with nature
Take your shoes off in some grass, walk outside and stare into a patch of forest for a few minutes. Even better, take some time to yourself and go on a 10-day nature retreat. Any amount of connection to nature – large or small – can provide you with a much-needed check into what is really important.
Just five minutes under a tree with your phone turned off can work like a miracle. And often, this is all it takes to bring you back into the moment.
- Get a higher perspective
One of the best things you can do in a time of stress is to give yourself the opportunity to see the bigger picture. To do this, find the highest natural point nearest you and go there. Stand over the vista and look out on the landscape before you — and just breathe. See, you feel better already.
